UTI, kidney function: If nocturia is a new symptoms need to check for UTI and kidney functions. If has been a chronic symptom and no cause was found in the past- possible causes are drinking water late at night, eating late at night. Better to check with your doctor. ...Read more

Diet (Definition)

210pounds 5^2 21yrs old. Considering the 400(or600) calories a day diet. Nutritional diet plan?

Not enough calories: If you drop caloric intake too drastically - you will actually eat up a lot of muscle and drop your metabolic rate. This is NOT a healthy way to lose weight. Consider working with a nutritionist so that you can do this in a healthy way. Take care. ...Read more

Does the 3 day military diet really work?

Does the 3 day military diet really work?

Would anticipate: short-term loss with significant water loss. The military diet (AKA 3 day diet) is a short term diet plan. A specific low calorie diet menu is spelled out & is to be used 3 days per week. Food choices are provided for four “days off” totaling 1,500 calorie intake per day. The diet promises that you can lose up to ten pounds in a week. I would be concerned about how low the calorie intake is on > ...Read more

My 7 month baby is formula fed, how much milk should she be having now? She eats 3 meals per day consisting of cereal fruit & vegetables.

My 7 month baby is formula fed, how much milk should she be having now? She eats 3 meals per day consisting of cereal fruit & vegetables.

24-36 oz: Before babies are taking solids a simple rule of thumb is: offer 2.5 ounces of formula per pound of body weight each day. Once taking solids, it can be harder to judge but most 8 month old's are drinking about 4 to 5, 6 ounce bottles a day: some more, some less. Offer only formula or water and let hunger be her guide. If she is growing well, has frequent wet diapers--perfect! if questions; ask! ...Read more

Diet pills, eating under 500 cal per day in food (nuts, fruit, fish veg etc), drinking wine bottle x 3/4pw, how will this affect my body? 138lb 5'8

Not healthy: See your pcp without delay for exam and guidance on your weight and proper eating. You may need closer to 2000 + calories / day depending on your level of activity. Be honest about any other meds/ alcohol/drug use and current stresses. Take care of your health and please get help. ...Read more

Baby now 5w takes 3oz of soy formula prepared with fluoride Nusery Water every 3-4 hours. fluorosis or are the amounts safe? Formula fed since day 3.

Baby now 5w takes 3oz of soy formula prepared with fluoride Nusery Water every 3-4 hours. fluorosis or are the amounts safe? Formula fed since day 3.

No need.: Congrats on your new baby and 3oz of formula prepared with nursery water with fluoride is not necessary. There are concerns about too much fluoride causing fluorosis and no need to use nursery water with fluoride. Most babies do not need fluoride until after 6 months of age. If you like nursery water, use it without fluoride until older than 6 months. ...Read more

Gave up diet soda a year ago. I drink 2-3 liters of water daily plus 2 Vitamin Water Zero daily with lunch one & dinner for flavor. Safe choice?

Gave up diet soda a year ago. I drink 2-3 liters of water daily plus 2 Vitamin Water Zero daily with lunch one & dinner for flavor. Safe choice?

I think this sounds: pretty good. Vitamin Water Zero passes a lot of nutritional tests: it is calorie free, has no artificial sweeteners (sweetened with Trulia and fructose) and no artificial dyes. You are getting 200% of the vitamin C recommended daily value (100% in each 8 oz), but close to 100% of a handful of B vitamins and a boost for a few more. Total fluid intake: about 84 to 118 oz daily..generous but ok:) ...Read more

Pred x 6mo.  40lb gain. Ate liquid diet half that time paleo diet (my norm) the rest. Not well enough to exercise.  Off pred. Can't lose. Diuretic?

Probably not: The weight gain may be just fluid but this should resolve when the prednisione stopped, you have gained fat weight. You will need a strict diet to lose this weight. ...Read more

Does a 30 days fruit and veggie diet work?

Does a 30 days fruit and veggie diet work?

Dont think good idea: Fruits and vegetables alone- doesnt sound like a well balanced diet. Where are you getting your complete protein from. You would need at least beans and legumes for a complete protein. I think you run the risk of running into a vitamin or mineral deficiency and dont recommend it. ...Read more

I've recently started drinking plenty of water (8 - 12 glasses of water daily), 1- 2 oatmeals daily, a sandwich or pasta for dinner. Is that healthy?

I've recently started drinking plenty of water (8 - 12 glasses of water daily), 1- 2 oatmeals daily, a sandwich or pasta for dinner. Is that healthy?

Eat a balanced diet: The amount of water you drink is dictated by thirst. You do not need to drink more than 4-5 glasseswater/day...Anything over will only make you run to urinals.As for food get a good balance between starches(carbohydertes), proteins and fat.. The goal is to have a healthy weight and get adequate amount of proteins, besides starches and pasta. The sources of proteins are eggs/ nuts/, soy/tofu/fish. ...Read more

I'm on a strict diet plan, being gluten free, i rarely go over 1, 200 calories per day and i excercise for an hour a day, i'm 6.7 and 260, & not losing?

I'm on a strict diet plan, being gluten free, i rarely go over 1, 200 calories per day and i excercise for an hour a day, i'm 6.7 and 260, & not losing?

A couple of things: Don't think I'm dismissing your issue at hand as it's an important problem, but based on your height, weight and age, your basal metabolic rate(the baseline amount of calories your body needs just for daily functioning) would far exceed 1200kcals/day. So if you were really only eating 1200kcals/day and didn't even move you should be losing weight! ...Read more

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?

Look into Paleo : Your lab numbers suggest you're on the path to diabetes. Even though you don't eat "sugar" any fiber or starch that your body can digest turns into sugar and fruit juice is sugar. Even things like diary that is thought of as healthy has sugar (lactose is a type of sugar). A person with lab numbers like yours has to limit all sugars and heal the damage. The paleo approach can help you do both. ...Read more

I'm active, workout at least 3 days a week for 1-2 hours, eat decent. 1200-1400 cal daily. Gained 23 IBS in 2 months. Not pregnant.

I'm active,  workout at least 3 days a week for 1-2 hours, eat decent. 1200-1400 cal daily. Gained 23 IBS in 2 months. Not pregnant.

Doesn't Add up: 23lbs gained is 83,000 excess calories. 1200-1400 cal per day with exercise should make you lose weight. Full sugar soda, energy drinks or alcohol can add empty calories you may not be counting. The excess has to be coming from somewhere. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
