does it harm or strain your kidneys/liver to filter excess water soluble vitamins. some multivitamins have well over rda, turn urine bright yellow?

Vitamins: It's not unusual or harmful to have deep yellow urine after taking multivitamins. Most vitamins are simply excreted in the urine if they exceed recommended daily doses. However some vitamins like D or A can be harmful when taken in massive doses. It's important to adhere to the doses recommended on the label of legitimate preparations. You can get advice from your pharmacist if you're unsure.

A male asked:

Can a CT scan properly diagnosis a hernia or abdominal pain?

Dr. Gerry Tolbert

Sometimes: Like any test, a ct scan is incomplete without a history and physical exam from a patient. Most of the time the story from the patient narrows the causes of abdominal pain considerably. Often the ct is used to *confirm* a diagnosis. Abdominal pain has so many causes that a ct scan alone is typically not sufficient for any useful diagnosis.
