can you drink 100% cranberry juice even though you take levothyroxine daily for hypotheroidism? will it affect the pill?

Recommendation : You can drink your juice as much as you want. But pills and juice separate. Pills better to take together with water or tea.

A 38-year-old member asked:

Do I need to bathe my newborn every day?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
No: Babies dont need baths every day. They dont produce body odor like adults and so baths are only needed when very dirty or soiled, or about every 3rd day. No reason to bath more than that unless very dirty.

Variable: Babies sleep anywhere from 8 to 20 hours in a 24 hour period. Some babies sleep in long blocks of time and some cat-nap. Your baby will pick her own schedule despite your attempts to put her on one.

Is it safe to take Synthroid (thyroxine) while pregnant?

Dr. David Fein
Specializes in Preventive Medicine
Yes: Not only is it safe, but if you were taking Synthroid (thyroxine) before your pregnancy, it is crucial to continue your Synthroid (thyroxine) during your pregnancy. Hypothyroidism (low thyroid disease) during pregnancy is a common medical condition. Your ob/gyn will check your thyroid hormone level throughout your pregnancy to maintain an adequate level.

Probably: You just need to take one of them. I tell patients that a centrum or one a day or two flintstones chewables are just as good as an super expensive, designer prenatal vitamin.

Yes: Generally scans are read within 24 hours. If it is a emergency ct it should be read immediately to rule out a stroke or bleed. The scan may have been read and sent to your doctor who has the results.
