It's ok.: Sometimes a urinalysis can report small amounts of blood in urine even if there is no health problem. Menstruation, recent exercise, and a concentrated urine from being a little dehydrated are a few common causes. The repeat urinalysis being normal is very reassuring.

Why did my doctor have to clamp and cut the cord during my delivery? Did I do something wrong?

Dr. Craig Keathley
Obstetrics and Gynecology 24 years experience
No: This occurs when the umbilical cord is around the baby's neck and cannot be easily reduced or slipped over the baby's head prior to completion of delivery. There is nothing you did to cause this.

Porphyria: Your doctor may have based his or her opinion on your symptoms, while the specialist bases his or her opinion on the tests, the only way to know if the symptoms are from porphyria. The specialist may have some other ideas and tests to help you with your problem. You are always welcome to get a second opinion, with any unsolved health problem.
A 21-year-old member asked:

I'm confused, what is lactic acidosis?

2 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Carlo Hatem
Pulmonary Critical Care 25 years experience
Dangerous condition: The body generates energy by breaking down fat and sugar thru a very efficient mechanism that uses oxygen and produces carbon dioxide and water. When this mechanism fails, there is another inefficient back up system that generates lactic acid. Poor blood flow, low oxygen, medications, poisons, excessive exercise can cause this lactic acidosis. It should be corrected promptly.
