A 45-year-old female asked:

I have nerve damage in my feet from diabetes. Mostly numbness but some pain too. If I can keep blood sugar under control will my feet get better?

May or may not: It all depends on the reversibility of the damage. If the damage is not permanent, it may get better, but if it is, it won't, but it is still worth trying to get it under control, so it won't get worse.

All can cause: One of the side effects of all the various types of progestins in birth control is acne. Some women do well with some types while others do well with other brands. It's all a matter of trying them out. Some newer pills do not have a progestin but have an anti-androgen instead. They may be associated with less acne.
A 53-year-old member asked:

Can taking in too much (whey) protein elevate prolactin levels and lead to nipple discharge in a young adult male? Still no diagnosis for my son.

Probably not: High prolactin levels leading to nipple discharge have many causes. The most common causes are medications, tumors, and medical problems such as chest wall injury (stimulates prolactin secretion locally) or renal failure (decreases the clearance of prolactin.) whey is not known to increase prolactin. Your doctor should consider medication review, basic labs, and mri.

I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.She is 41 days old now.She was born cesarian surgery.Her weight at birth was 2 and half kilos. She had jaundice which was physiological jaundice and now shes fine but still her sclera is yellowish in colour.Is that so

No worries: Bring that up with your pediatrician. What is yellowish to you may not be actual yellow. To your doctor...May be a reflection of genetics or melanin content. Your pediatrician can reassure you by seeing it. Many newborns have yellowish color until about a month old..She is a bit older so it would be helpful to have her seen. It most likely just a bit prolonged in clearing.

Breast milk jaundice starts later than physiologic jaundice, and can linger. If the jaundice continues or worsens, a workup including a CBC, diff, and liver panel is indicated.

Probably not: Ms can cause memory loss and weakness but it usually doesn't cause someone to run a fever. I would suggest going to the nearest er. This sounds like a problem that should not wait until monday.
