Not really.: It's really, really hard to eat too much broccoli. If his stool consistency changes you may want to rethink the amount. It should not affect the thyroid. Meanwhile, congratulations! Many parents are envying you your child who eats vegetables. ...Read more

I'm lactose but i start drinking silk almond milk can that help with , aging of the bones? And how much calcium should I intake?

I'm lactose but i start drinking silk almond milk can that help with , aging of the bones? And how much calcium should I intake?

You need calcium: Unless the silk almond milk specifically states that it is fortified with calcium, it would not be a good source of calcium and you would need other calcium supplementation. You also need vitamin d to help build those strong bones and prevent bone-loss related diseases. Speak with a dietician regarding specific amounts daily, as this depends on age, weight, other meds taking, etc. Be strong! ...Read more

Can soy affect your fertility? Is consuming too much soy bad for you?

Can soy affect your fertility? Is consuming too much soy bad for you?

Unlikely to affect: Soy contains weak plant hormones (phytoestrogens) that have some hormonal effect, but it should have little effect on fertility in normal quantities of consumption like drinking soymilk or eating edamame or tofu. A pre-menopausal woman makes much stronger estrogen hormones like Estradiol as part of a normal cycle. Eating massive quantities of anything can be bad for you of course. ...Read more

Hyper thyroid due to Rx mistake. Will eating foods like cabbage, broccoli, etc... And drinking lots of water help excess hormones leave body faster?

Hyper thyroid due to Rx mistake. Will eating foods like cabbage, broccoli, etc... And drinking lots of water help excess hormones leave body faster?

Thyroid: Sorry you got overdosed. I hope you are not having rapid heart beat and fevers. The half life of thyroid medication is 2 to 7 days. That means if you stop the medicine today your serum level will be 1/2 it is now in 2 to 7 days, Extra fluids OK, but the broccoli might actually slow liver metabolism. If heart racing see your doctor. ...Read more

Can drinking lemon with water throughout the day, everyday be harmful? Maybe too much acidity? Or it's completely healthy?

Can drinking too much milk cause hyperkalemia? Just wondering as milk is a decent Source of potassium and ive been drinking more of it latelym

Can drinking too much milk cause hyperkalemia? Just wondering as milk is a decent Source of potassium and ive been drinking more of it latelym

Should be ok for...: What is too much is hard to define. In reality, most persons have a pair of kidneys with a wide range of functional reserve to automatically manage what you consume. Nonetheless, testing serum electrolytes once will bring a firm reassurance; that is a easy thing to do. Plane speculation will impose much pressure of unnecessary anxiety and even fear. More, seek counseling. ...Read more

Does eating too much choco may cause me of eating disorder? I ate 150g/day of choco does this affect my appetite that why i can't eat much proper meal

Does eating too much choco may cause me of eating disorder? I ate 150g/day of choco does this affect my appetite that why i can't eat much proper meal

It does not cause: An eating disorder per se. It would take a full psychiatric evaluation by an eating disorder specialist to determine if you actually have an eating disorder. Certainly however consuming too many calories of chocolate can be very filling and make it difficult for you to eat a normal meal. Please set up an appointment with a psychiatrist if you have any further concerns about this or if you find that you are gaining excessive weight or losing excessive weight or if you start vomiting after you eat. Best wishes. ...Read more

Between 2 cups coffee and oatmeal I can consume around 3 cups of milk daily. Is that considered too much milk for me? I don't mind it. Healthy weight

Between 2 cups coffee and oatmeal I can consume around 3 cups of milk daily. Is that considered too much milk for me? I don't mind it. Healthy weight

No, that's not: too much. Not drinking any milk is where many young women get into a little nutritional jeopardy because milk is such a good source of calcium. The only concern would be the fat content of 3 cups of milk. There is 2.4 grams of fat (1.5 grams of saturated fat) in a cup of milk; 7% of the recommended daily amount. So 3 cups would be 21% of daily recs. If you can drink 1 or 2%, much better. Stay well ...Read more

Drinking too much oat milk, will this cause any problems?

Not that i know of: Am unaware of any information about problems with drinking lots of oat milk. It is not dairy-derived, does not have any cholesterol and has little fat. It is high in fiber and protein. People with certain kinds of gluten sensitivities could have problems with it, I guess. I always caution moderation in all things. ...Read more

Cow's milk causes acne me ( i stopped drink) but buttermilk not (from a milkman near to me ) . Can you explain why ??  And can i take goat yogurt ??

Milk acne: Goat's milk or yogurt is different from Cow's milk so it is possible that you can use it without the sensitivity that you get from the cow's milk. If it is true acne, that is not an allergic reaction, but a sensitivity. ...Read more
