Elevated bilirubin disease?
Subject: Elevated bilirubin disease?

I cannot find this disease since I am not sure what the first few letters clearly are, maybe a French name, again not sure.  The patient has an elevated bilirubin, abdominal pain and vomiting.  The doc suspects this disease rather than an obstruction.  The disease s/l Jobear's or Joulbar's or Yolbear's.

Subject: elevated bilirubin disease

I think you're looking for Gilbert syndrome. A French pronunciation would sound like what you're hearing. It's an error in bilirubin metabolism.
can you have excess bilirubin in the urine?
Subject: can you have excess bilirubin in the urine?

I really don't know. Listen carefully, though, and make sure the doc is not saying "emia" instead of "uria" at the end of it.


urinalysis high bilirubin Ictotest?
Subject: urinalysis high bilirubin Ictotest?

It sounds like "EYE-co-test" the way it's pronounced by my Latin dictator, but I found Ictotest in Saunders pharm Word Book, but did n't find it at Drugs.com which is usually pretty reliable.  Has anyone heard of this?


bilirubin level -infant jaundice
Subject: bilirubin level -infant jaundice

This is a 4 day old infant with jaundice.  The doctor states the baby has rising "transbutating"? bilirubin levels.  I cannot catch the "trans" word- it sounds like transmutating, transfutating...  Any ideas?

Amphetamines are concentrated in the kidney, lungs, cerebrospinal fluid and brain.
correct answers most definitely can be found on
Subject: correct answers most definitely can be found on

The correct answer(s) can ALWAYS be found online and I have tons of reference books (which become outdated as technology presses on).  The internet is putting libraries out of business and if you don't think so....just watch and wait.  Business at libraries is HEAVILY DOWN due to this.


There are very 100% reliable websites to find ALL answers and websites that Medquist wants us to use.  It's less time consuming actually for some to find the correct answers online.  You can back it up by also looking in the books.


Lighten up on the poster please.  You can say what you want to or have to say, but have you ever heard of being kind to posters or other people in life?

Forming plurals of lowercase letters


Apostrophes are used to form plurals of letters that appear in lowercase; here the rule appears to be more typographical than grammatical, e.g. "three ps" versus "three p's." To form the plural of a lowercase letter, place 's after the letter. There is no need for apostrophes indicating a plural on capitalized letters, numbers, and symbols (though keep in mind that some editors, teachers, and professors still prefer them). Here are some examples:



p's and q's = a phrase indicating politeness, possibly from "mind your pleases and thankyous"?



Nita's mother constantly stressed minding one's p's and q's.

correct = nicked (verb: to cut nick into)

onelook.com is a good dictionary source on-line.
Were is correct.
Subject: Were is correct.

As the word remainder represents a portion, the verb to use is determined by the noun in the "of phrase" that follows. In your case, "forms" is plural so use were.

This rule also applies for other "portion" words such as none, all, some, part, etc. Hope this helps.

PS: See 'The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation' by Jane Straus.
