For about two years I've had chronic pruritus - for various reasons I suspected PBC. For past months I've had very sticky stools, and tested positive for blood in stools, though color is normal. I'm vegetarian so less fat in diet than average. I'm now

Gastroenterologist.: Since you have been found to have blood in your stool, it is vital to see a gastroenterologist ASAP. While you are there, you can discuss your symptoms that may be related to PBC. A simple blood test could determine if that is likely. Do not delay getting your blood in the stool checked out! Good luck. ...Read more

How can I start eatingm eat after 2 years of being a vegetarian?

Sorry it didn't work: Quite a few students entering medical school state that they are vegetarians. About half of them give it up when they become better-informed about the facts of health and illness. It's your choice. Grab some healthy lean meat and enjoy. If people ask, you can tell them, "I discovered I was iron-deficient on a vegetarian diet -- it's simply not right for me" -- or any other face-saver. ...Read more

See Dr. and then eat: If one is truly underweight (based on height, family background, and body type), a Dr. can evaluate for a hormonal, digestive, or other disorder.

During 2 years i began being ovolacto vegetarian not in standard way.Now i'm not.And i think I have hypoglycemia now.Is this because of those 2 years?

During 2 years i began being ovolacto vegetarian not in standard way.Now i'm not.And i think I have hypoglycemia now.Is this because of those 2 years?

Probably not unless: I have no idea what you mean "not in a standard way" which makes this difficult to answer. We often can't find the cause of hypoglycemia but one cause can be eating excessive amounts of sweets ; simple starches so if that was the case during those 2 years it may have contributed. For a good list of possible causes see http://www.Reactivehypoglycemia.Info/2009/05/reactive-hypoglycemia-causes/. ...Read more

I need to gain weight. I an 27 years old vegetarian. Can I use nutrigain powder?

You may use the powder, however eating a mixed vegetarian diet that includes milk and milk products will supply all the nutrients you need. You may take vitamin D3 supplement at a dose of 1000-2000 units/day. With age, you will gain weight and look back fondly at these days when you could eat and not gain weight ...Read more
