Unless your blood pressure is so low that you have fainting spells your blood pressure may in fact be normal. This is an issue which will be easily addressed at your next prenatal visit. Share your concerns with your doc. ...Read more

I have pots, and lost my baby to placental abruption (which they think caused the pots) should I not try again? Better to adopt? Once pots gets better

POT[t]S: Stands for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and is caused by abnormal activity of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system (ans). I think that the "abruptio" and the pots are from a common cause---- compromised body chemistrry, in the control mechanisms of the ANS and the normal function of pregnancy. My guess is that it is due to lousy diet that provides the energy for cellularfunction. ...Read more

I have a habit of eating raw rice. i am addicted to that. My mom says my haemoglobin level will decrease and i will become anemic  if i eat raw rice. ?

What kind of rice?: If you are eating polished rice and do not have sufficient intake of other foods, it could cause nutritional deficiencies worse than anemia. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I eat well balanced meals and exercise regularly, but i recently tested my blood sugar and it read at 56. Is this dangerous? Should i see a doctor?

I eat well balanced meals and exercise regularly, but i recently tested my blood sugar and it read at 56. Is this dangerous? Should i see a doctor?

Blood sugar: I wouldn't put much too stock in 1 random measurement. As long as you're not getting dizzy, faint, sweaty, or having palpitations - this is probably an error in the measurement, or its just a normal reading for you body without clinical significance. Blood sugars fluctuate throughout the day depending on what and how long ago you ate. If you're having symptoms, then see your doc. ...Read more

Under control or not: if your blood sugar is under control, then it should not "go over every once in a while". Issues such as macrosomia (very large babies) can result from diabetes and the better controlled the blood sugar the better it is for the baby overall. ...Read more

If I have a really low potassium count and eat 2 bananas a day and drink a couple Ensures, will it come up? How fast? It's low because havent eaten.

Whoa: A potassium level well below the reference range is reason for a full medical workup, if you value your life. It's an aldosteronoma until proved otherwise. This is probably not due to "not eating". Get with a competent physician if the situation is as you've represented. ...Read more

Can I increase my oxygen level in my blood by exercising a lot, even if I have anaemia?

Can I increase my oxygen level in my blood by exercising a lot, even if I have anaemia?

Oxygen in blood: The oxygen in your blood is linked to the concentration of red cells in your blood. If you are anemic, that is what is going to limit your oxygenation, not how much you exercise. Being healthier may improve your anemia. If you exercise more, you may signal your body to tell your bone marrow to make more blood. ...Read more
