What thing reinforces the fibrous capsule to help prevent dislocation of the joint?

Dr. Paul Cohen

Connective tissue: I believe you post is looking for either 'connective tissue', or fascia. Each joint has plent of tendinous/ligamentous support to prevent dislocation; it is when these tissues develop laxity that the dislocation occurs.

Is sheep placenta capsule good for woman who is going to have baby?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
No, not related: Eating an animal's placenta, or any other part of an animal, does not have a predictable effect on a woman's body. Chemicals, hormones, and nutrients in food (whether in a capsule or on a dinner plate), are digested in the woman's stomach. If a woman ate large amounts of one animal organ, then problems can develop. If hormones are needed, fertility doctors can prescribe high quality exact amounts.

Is it bad if after giving a toddler ib profin his fever is only taken down to 99.5 and not normal. Over an hour has passed sincemed. Pediatricians?

Family Medicine 38 years experience
Fever: 99.5 is low-grade fever and may actually help fight the cause (cold/ear infection/whatever) tepid/luke-warm bath or cloths applied to forehead may assist. Never give a med sooner than prescribed: if the instructions say every 4 to 6 hours, follow those directions. Since the fever (what was it originally?) has dropped to almost "normal" within an hour, do not be concerned. Monitor the temperature.

Provided original answer
Remember: "normal temperature" is a range, not a single number. our temp varies throughout the day. when it goes over 102-103 in child & doesn't drop after med, see doc for further evaluation

A member asked:

I am to take 50, 000 iu of vitamin d (my level is 26.7) once a week. Could I take one capsule every other week and still benefit?

3 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Hanriet Minasian
Internal Medicine 18 years experience
Yes: With that level, you will still get the benefit, but it will take your vitamin d storage a little longer to build up. Vitamin d is fat soluble, which means that our body will continue to store it. Levels can easily be assessed with blood testing.
A 32-year-old female asked:

Can I take nurofen one hour after taking panadol (acetaminophen)?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Mitchell Cohn
Pain Management 35 years experience
Yes: I had to do a bit of research as nurofen and panadol are not common names of medications in the us. Nurofen is apparently a combination of Ibuprofen and phenylephrine and panadol is paracetamol (acetaminophen, in us parlance.) based up this information, i see no reason that these medications cannot be used in tandem. The meds do not significantly interact.
