Caution: I would advise against trying to get pregnant while you are taking the shake to lose weight. Wait until you have achieved your weight loss goal and/or discontinue drinking the shakes before you start taking prenatal vitamins and trying to get pregnant.

Does having celiac disease make a woman more prone to sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy?

Do not think so : I am not aware of any connection between celiac disease, which primarily involves gluten intolerance and causes diarrhea, and sciatica. Sciatica is usually caused by edema around this nerve or pinching of the nerve.

See a doctor: Upper respiratory infections are usually caused by a virus and they are usually gone after 5-7 days. If symptoms are persisting for over 7 days its time to get an doctor's examination. Sometimes a viral URI will develop a secondary bacterial infection which will be relieved with prescription antibiotics. A doctor can also swab the throat and check for streptoccocal infection.

Had arthroscopic knee surgery 2 mos ago but fell 2 days ago, and painful swelling, could I have reinjured it?

Yes, but probably no: I tell all my patients how to protect their knees after surgery often with bracing and/or crutches. My guess is that most fall at some point in the early postoperative period. So you are in good company. It really spends on two things: what exact surgery was performed, and how bad was the fall? You should check with your surgeon to see how concerned he or she is. A quick check alleviates anxiety.

I'm a month pregnant and I couldn't eat healthy due to nausea. I suffer stomach burn & ache.Wt to do?

See your doc: Your doc may be able to give you some basic medications (eg vitamin b6) to control your nausea. Eating smaller portioned meals may help your nausea and avoid spicy foods/caffeine if possible until the nausea reduces. If your nausea persists despite treatment, you may need some stronger medications and IV fluids.

Don't Worry: Each individual has unique calorie needs based on their basal metabolic rate and level of physical activity. However, calorie counting really should not be undertaken by teenagers. Teens are growing and need good nutrition. Just focus on eating balanced, healthy meals and get plenty of exercise and sleep.
