Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Updated and Verified: July 23, 2024 (News page records significant changes.)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is nerve compression, typically in the wrist, that causes pain, numbness, and tingling.1 Her Carpal Tunnel Syndrome rates triple his.2 McDiarmid et al. predict that a significant part of that disparity arises not by sex differences of his and her metabolism but rather the much higher tendency of women than men to work jobs that often cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.2 However, research and analysis identify these significant Carpal Tunnel Syndrome risks unique to her metabolism: pregnancy, menopause, and oral contraceptives.1 These factors will logically spike her Carpal Tunnel Syndrome rate vs his. The researchers also identify alcoholism as a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome risk factor. Alcohol affects her metabolism far more than this:

After drinking the same amount of alcohol, women tend to have higher blood alcohol levels than men, and the immediate effeCarpal Tunnel Syndrome of alcohol usually occur more quickly and last longer in women than men. These differences make women more susceptible to the long-term negative health effeCarpal Tunnel Syndrome of alcohol compared with men.3

So, alcohol as a risk factor to her metabolism for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome will logically tend to worsen her Carpal Tunnel Syndrome rate, compared to his. This is yet another example of how her metabolism is especially harmed by the dangerous and misogynistic myth of equality.

Medical, Legal, and Metabolic Advice

Here in the USA, it is generally illegal and a bad idea for anyone but a jurisdiction-licensed physician to give medical advice, anyone but a jurisdiction-licensed attorney to give legal advice, anyone but a jurisdiction-licensed nutritionist or registered dietician to give metabolic advice, and so forth. This website's information is generally incomplete to predict how applying it may affect a given visitor - because the effects depend on the person's unique circumstances and characteristics.

So, here is the only medical, legal, and metabolic advice on this website: None of this website is individualized medical, legal, or metabolic advice. It is general information. You should not try to apply any of this information to your life, unless you know what you are doing. Generally, the governments of USA's jurisdictions (states and territories) declare two things through law:

  1. Without the guidance of a jurisdiction-licensed physician, attorney, or nutritionist: you do not know what you are doing, so it is unwise and unsafe for you to make too many decision about your medical, legal, and metabolic status and circumstances, and
  2. no one but a licensed physician, attorney, or nutritionist can safely and effectively advise you about those statuses and circumstances - thus, it is generally illegal for anyone else to try.

Obviously, those standards are extremely conservative, if not heavy-handed. However, one should remember that many of those people in government who uphold such strict standards have seen the stuff of nightmares: predictable, preventable, terrible consequences when the least capable and least conscientious people make the worst decisions - whether medically, legally, nutritionally, or otherwise. So, it is not wildly unreasonable to promote - even to legally command - erring on the safe side. Still, various jurisdictions do provide some exceptions to those exceptionally strict standards under law.

Here in Minnesota (and in many other U.S. states and territories) a person can help you with certain aspects of your medical, legal, and metabolic status and circumstances - even when that person is not formally licensed by the jurisdiction. Minnesota, for example, allows various people besides licensed nutritionists and registered dieticians to give metabolic advice and guidance: certain Complementary and Alternative Health Care providers, which Minnesota allows under law. Minn. Stat. § 146A. Thus, one need not feel completely locked into the strict standards listed above (though jurisdictions do typically still hold alternative providers to certain basic standards under law). Instead, in the USA, one can discuss the information on this website, and receive guidance about it, from various experts - whether jurisdiction-licensed or not. Meanwhile, this thorough and smart-sounding notice and explanation should not tempt any visitor into having any extra trust for the information in this website. At most, as the saying goes: "trust but verify."
