Yes: Parkinson's disease would be the most common cause of balance issues and tremors.
Dr. William Goldie
Pediatric Neurology 48 years experience
Many causes: It is important to get a thorough medical evaluation. If these are new problems that seem to be getting worse, then a detailed neurological evaluation would be appropriate. Side effects from medications, metabolic problems, toxic effects, liver and kidney disease can all cause similar problems. Discuss these with your doctor.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is glucose balance supplement safe for pregnant women?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Aileen Caceres
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: Glucose metabolism changes in pregnancy and a delicate balance is maintained by the placenta and your system. Women may experience glucose insensitivity or diabetes during pregnancy because you are not able to metabolize sugar as well. Be cautious of using supplements that may alter the way that you metabolize sugars as this may increase your risk of developing diabetes during your pregnancy.

Yes, sort of.....: Your frequent hand washing will help prevent you from spreading e. Coli to others. Your risk of contracting e. Coli, however, is dependent on the foods you consume and the hygiene of those who prepared your food.
A 31-year-old member asked:

I and my child wash our hands regularly, is there anything else I can do to prevent pinworm?

2 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Kenneth Cheng

Break the life cycle: The life cycle of a pinworm infection is as follows: the pinworm comes out at night and lays eggs around the anus. This causes itching, causing us to scratch and get the eggs under our fingernails. We ingest the eggs (by biting our nails, sucking our fingers, eating, etc.) and the eggs hatch in our intestines and start the cycle again. Washing, not touching our mouth and not itching prevents this.

Atarax (hydroxyzine): Atarax (hydroxyzine) does not cause itching rather, stopping the drug causes the suppressed itch to come out once again.
