A 31-year-old member asked:

If I took indoethacin in my last weeks of pregnancy, should the fetal heart rate be monitored on a daily basis?

Specializes in Gynecology
Depends: Indomethacin taken frequently over a long period of time can cause a transient change in the fetal heart circulation (in doctor speak it closes the ductus arteriosus). Small doses for only a few days, which is usually the only thing we would do, is not particularly dangerous. Check with your doctor on why you are taking it and whether monitoring is needed.

Yes: Anyone who has breastfed knows that it can be very demanding. Sleep deprivation is common for new moms, especially those who are breastfeeding. Keep breastfeeding, though..It is really the best gift you can give your baby. Get anyone willing to help you to give you a hand so that you can catch up on some sleep. Sleep deprivation can certainly cause headaches and depression.

Will daily aspirin help in the reduction of blood clots in a patient with endocarditis?

Probably not much: The endocarditis needs to be treated properly with antibiotics. Anticoagulant therapy is controversial but warfarin is most used.

That's a hard one: If you are looking for a carved in stone #, i won't give you one. It depends on your current weight, the weight you've gained so far in your pregnancy, the severity of your diabetes etc. Your best bet would be to talk it over with your nutritionist, who should help you make out a plan and suggest a menu or two that you may follow.

Will looking at an eye chart every day improve eyesight?

Dr. Clement Cheng

No: There are no known "excercises" that have been shown in good medical studies to permanently improve your best corrected vision. The visual system is not the same as your muscular system so more repetition does not improve your vision. Looking at an eye chart every day will allow you to test your vision and alert you to any changes or weakening of your vision.
