Heine is the oxygen-carrying component of hemoglobin, a part of red blood cells. Normally, the body uses enzymes to convert to substances called porphyrins heine. When the normal process of heine production is disrupted, the body may produce excessive amounts of porphyrins, which leads to porphyria. Signs and symptoms of acute porphyria include muscle weakness, abdominal pain, and seizures. Medication may be used for preventing future attacks or treating an acute attack. For acute porphyria, treatment may consist of a variety of medications to control symptoms of the attack. Hos- pitalization may be required. For acute pain, narcotic analgesics such as merperidine (Demerol) may be administered. To alleviate nausea and vomiting, phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine) or prochlorperazine (Compazine) may be administered. Chloral hydrate (Somnote) may be administered to alleviate insomnia. Glucose may be administered intravenously to maintain 'an adequate intake of carbohydrates. Hemin for injection (Pan- hematin) may be recommended for severe attacks, and milder at- tacks that are unresponsive to intravenous glucose administration. $'1 We Now Carry $1 a Great Selection of $1,00 items! 4 $1 See us for all your health and beauty needs PUBLIC FAX # 276-762-0213 DOUBLE WINNERS: CUMBERLAND DISTRICT CHAMPIONS...The Castle- wood Blue Devils girls' basketball team has won the Cumberland District Championship, and is playing in the Region D.
