That seems too short: Many women have occasional variation of their menstrual cramps, mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, or even a missed period. Having one of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s Ob-Gyn doctor is helpful if symptoms are unusual... such as 14-day or 18-day cycles. Both are quite abnormally short.

Parents in today's society will have to work hard to provide healthy food messages, modeling is the key.

May be hard to do...: People try to live and work in conditions that their bodies are able to adapt to, but sometimes that is not possible. A primary care doctor and a dermatologist can help prevent and treat recurrent heat rash (miliaria treatment). Keeping the skin surface intact, healthy, and normal is important. That means not rubbing the skin with rough clothes, or getting industrial chemicals on them.

Can be other causes: Dizziness with exercise doesn't just happen with inadequate hydration. If a person is well hydrated, and still gets dizzy, her doctor can evaluate. Sometimes there are circulation problems, such as not enough blood flow to the brain under certain conditions or activities. There can be heart problems, or not enough red blood cells (anemia), etc...
