My pediatrician says I don't need to worry about my children between the ages of 2 years and 18 years old having iron overload. He says it's an "adult onset" disease; is this true?
Worry about iron: You must realize that your doctor is talking about safe nutritional doses of iron for the kids. One of the common poisoning that occurs in children is iron, usually in the form of candy like multivitamins which are now phased out. Growing children and menstruating women need adequate iron on a daily basis. Other adults do not usually need much iron unless they are anemic due to iron deficieny. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes!: Provided that you mean adhd first diagnosed in adulthood. The diagnosis depends in part on evidence of adhd by age 7. Problem is, it is (or at least 20 years ago was) mainly picked up in childhood if it was the hyperactive type. The large number of inattentive type kids were not picked up, so we have to ask about symptoms in childhood specifically. Much researck in adhd first diagnosed in adults. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Adult onset diabetic with gastrparesis I've woke with fbs of over 400 for 5 days now. What to do? I also have many other dx's
Look for reason: Assuming the 400 fbs is unusual for you, you need to look for reasons for it being elevated. Very common are bladder infections, due to often having sugar in the urine of diabetics. Not all bladder infections have typical symptoms, so I'd start there. Other medical illnesses (even a cold), physical or mental stress, and of course diet can all increase sugars. Best to get evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

And don't fret about not having them counted on the machines -- many people have zero counts and it depends on the lab. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
