Fludeoxyglucose F18

High Risk for breastfeeding


Poorly safe. Evaluate carefully.
Use safer alternative or interrupt breastfeeding 3 to 7 T ½ (elimination half-lives).
Read the Comment.

Radioisotope for PET scanning.

Pump-out breast milk and store it in refrigerator for some days before testing. After test is done, keep-on pumping milk and dispose it for the next 12-24 hours. Use stored milk to feed the baby. Choose the shortest half-life span radionucleotid as possible.

Alternatives

We do not have alternatives for Fludeoxyglucose F18.

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM´s pediatricians and pharmacists, and are based on updated scientific publications.
It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.

Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
