A 21-year-old member asked:

Am I correct in saying that my first line of action to prevent incontinence is not to cut back on fluids, but specifically fluids with caffeine?

What is the difference between the symptoms of vertigo and symptoms of orthostatic hypotension?

Dr. David Astrachan
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 37 years experience
Motion vs. lighthead: Vertigo is defined as "the sensation of motion in the absence of motion." this will lead to the feeling that either you are moving in some way (spinning is common) or your environment is moving. People with orthostatic hypotension do not typically complain of motion, rather they feel as if they are lightheaded or as if they might faint.

Why does a person with lactose intolerance have flatulence with the ingestion of dairy products?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Bacteria make gas: A normal person eating a healthy diet can get flatulent. One reason is excess fiber. Since humans don't digest the fiber, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason is lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) he eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. A third reason is sugar alcohols, like maltitol, that can cause gas & diarrhea.

Does iron intake affect coronary artery disease?

Dr. Shahin Tavackoli
Cardiology 23 years experience
Shouldn't: I have never heard of iron supplementation affecting the course of coronary artery disease. Too much iron can effect the myocardium, however, even in that case, it usually is not the oral supplementation but a different process that leads to the damage (cardiomyopathy).
A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it excess iron intake causing my heavy periods?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jeff Livingston
Obstetrics and Gynecology 22 years experience
No: Iron supplementation will not cause a heavy period. Often periods are so heavy that they cause anemia and iron supplementation will be prescribed. You should discuss treatment options for heavy periods with your obgyn.
