Finding conflicting info on Healthtap regarding length of Valium staying in system for ua. Doctor answered me, but no other answers I've seen?
Yes it is confusing: Yes it is confusing, because for valium itself, the half life is 36 hours by average, but it turns to an active metabolite which has 80 hr (by average) half life instead. Having that said, if we count on valium's active metabolite, it will take 240 hours (3-4 half lifes) to have valium and metabolites cleared out from your body hope this answer is final and you would not seek more help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

But, if no bump, then negative. ...Read more

Sev. Dev. Delay -array comparative genetic hybridization (acgh) results indicate no abnormalities- would full genetic sequencing be advised (knome)?

Yes, indirectly.: Since the discovery that antenatal steroids could reduce respiratory distress syndrome (rds) more than 20 years ago, there have been few studies of preventing rds, per se. However, the major cause of rds is preterm birth and there have been lots of recent studies of conditions like preterm labor, gestational diabetes, and pregnancy-induced hypertension, that are associated with preterm delivery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
