I went to Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine. I've practiced Internal Medicine for 20 years. It is my pleasure to help you feel better today and to also design a program to help you gain control of your health. I'm happy to provide an antibiotic for your sinus infection, but I'll also make lifestyle suggestions to reduce the duration and frequency of future infections.

A 61-year-old male asked:
Eat an alkaline diet: The biggest contributor to recurrent kidney stones is an acidic diet, which results in high calcium levels in the urine. Cut out meat and processed dairy to alkalinize your diet quickly. The oxalates and beans are mostly bound by other compounds in the beans, making beans and excellent, safe source of protein for you. In addition to whole grains and nuts.

Information: You probably have thrombophlebitis, which is inflammation of the blood vessel. This is common after placement of an IV. It's treated with heat and Motrin. However clotting cannot be ruled out, and you should consider seeing a doctor and getting an ultrasoundl based on her recommendations.
A 43-year-old female asked:
Quick dividing cells: Rapidly dividing cells are sometimes impacted with medications that tried to stop cells that are replicating inappropriately, such as medicines used to treat cancer. That's why cancer patients suffer with hair loss and also with problems with their gastrointestinal tract, because those organs are turning over rapidly and are impacted with chemotherapy.
