The other offender in causing left side pain in the lower area of the back is the gallbladder. The gallbladder stores bile that is produced by the liver and this helps the body with food digestion. Problems with your gallbladder are fairly common in industrialized societies. The refined and processed food eaten in these cultures takes a heavy toll on the gallbladder. Recent studies show that over a million Americans have gallstones can have gall stones or a diseased gallbladder and the result is almost always the same. Remove the gallbladder and you remove the pain.
Why are different strengths critical? The appropriate strength depends on many factors. For example, babies absorb topical steroids faster than adults, so they may require a low-potency steroid. Areas of the body where skin touches skin (think: armpits, rectal area, etc), as well as sensitive areas (like the skin on the eyelids), tend to absorb topical steroids more rapidly, so those regions of the body also usually require a low-potency steroid. However, thick, rough skin on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet usually absorb topical steroids more slowly than other parts of the body, so those areas typically require a more potent steroid. Keep in mind: The greater the potency of the steroid (in other words, the lower its class number), the more likely it is to cause side effects .
Pediatric Use: In a pediatric study, the toxicity profile observed in 13 pediatric patients with APL between the ages of 4 and 20 receiving TRISENOX was similar to that observed in adult patients. Additional drug-related toxicities reported included: gastrointestinal disorders, metabolic and nutrition disorders, respiratory disorders, cardiac failure congestive, neuralgia, and enuresis. One case each of pulmonary edema and caecitis were considered serious reactions. No children less than 4 years of age were enrolled in the trial due to the rarity of APL in this age group.
