I was bulimic for over 10 years. Can a probiotic tablet help?

Comprehensive Plan: It's awfully hard 2 recover from eating disorders. It's great u were able 2 do so -esp.

I have a 4, 7, 10 yo. I just learned a picture frame and old metal milk jug we have had in our home for 4 years contains lead paint. Should I panic?

I have a 4, 7, 10 yo. I just learned a picture frame and old metal milk jug we have had in our home for 4 years contains lead paint. Should I panic?

Not necessarily: It might be a problem if your kids were gnawing on the frame or drinking from the jug. A simple blood test can detect lead exposures of any significance.This was probably already done with some of the kids regular checkups.You can always have them repeated. ...Read more

Am a 50 year old widow been treated for HPV virus for 28 years had same partner for 27 years what can I do to start new life had approximately 7 warts removed in life of virus no bad paps

Am a 50 year old widow been treated for HPV virus for 28 years had same partner for 27 years what can I do to start new life had approximately 7 warts removed in life of virus  no bad paps

There : There in cure for hpv. The good news is that the strains that cause warts do not cause cervical cancer. However you need to continue with yearly pap smears. If you are worried about speading the virus, or contracting other strains for that matter, you should use condoms with any new partners. This is a good idea anyway especially if you are going to be in a new relationship(s). You can start your new life by being safe and responsible with the use of condoms. Take care and enjoy your life! ...Read more

I quit smoking 7 days ago. In the last 24 hours i've lost 9 pounds and i can't help but be petrified. I smoked for 10 years. Is this bad?

I quit smoking 7 days ago. In the last 24 hours i've lost 9 pounds and i can't help but be petrified. I smoked for 10 years. Is this bad?

No, best to quit: Agree that 9 pounds in 1 day is likely water weight and shouldn't alarm you. If you are on other medications, however, talk to your provider. Sometimes quitting smoking can change how you metabolize the medications - you may need less, or more. You should feel great about quitting after 10 years. Keep working on getting through the day without tobacco. Call 1-800-quit now if you need any coaching! ...Read more

I've had 10 bilateral ECT treatments over a year ago. Would smoking or eating cannabis products be dangerous now that I've had "shocks" to my Brain?

I've had 10 bilateral ECT treatments over a year ago. Would smoking or eating cannabis products be dangerous now that I've had "shocks" to my Brain?

Doesn't matter: The ECT treatments you had will not have any adverse effects on your use of cannabis although I can think of all sorts of reasons not to use it....unless it's under medical direction and supervision. ...Read more

I have been sober for over 10 months. I had about 8 drinks last night, will that show up on a typical hair test given to obtain a job?

I have been sober for over 10 months. I had about 8 drinks last night, will that show up on a typical hair test given to obtain a job?

Depends: It depends on how soon you will have your hair analyzed. You probably have only a few days after drinking in which the hair follicle test will not show the alcohol. After a few days (approx 5 days), the alcohol will likely be able to be detected in the hair follicles. ...Read more

Have had lap band surgery and tummy tuck with breast lift. Starting to gain some weight back can I take an appetite depressant? I am a 49 year old female, married 30 years have 4 children. I have had a lap band surgery 2 1/2 years ago and 16 months ago a

Band: You can take an appetite suppressant but that really isn't the answer. You need to figure out why you are gaining weight. Eating too much food? Eating bad foods? Not exercising? Band too loose? Make sure your band is well adjusted. Maybe you need to see your surgeon. Address all of these issues first before thinking about taking diet pills. ...Read more

Had genital warts over 10 yrs ago w no reoccurrence in over 10 years pregnant now any concerns I should have?

Had genital warts over 10 yrs ago w no reoccurrence in over 10 years pregnant now any concerns I should have?

HPV: HPV may be silent and cause no obvious outward signs, and most often the immune system will clear the virus. A history of warts removed 10 years ago, without any recurrence, likely indicates no presence of virus. As well, if you have had Pap smears routinely, this would pick up evidence of virus. Sounds like all is fine, and hope you have an uneventful pregnancy. ...Read more

I smoked for over 25 years. I'm now 44 years old. Can i make anything good or better for my health when i stop smoking ?

I smoked for over 25 years. I'm now 44 years old. Can i make anything good or better for my health when i stop smoking ?

Yes: You will benefit in the short-term by reduction of polycythemia (normalization of rbc count), reversal of vasoconstriction of your arteries, and increased oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. Long-term benefits will be primarily improvements in pulmonary function. It may take up to five years for your risk status to improve to the level of a non-smoker. ...Read more
