Scam: This is a very-low-calorie diet with an expensive placebo. You'll lose weight by restricting calories, and spend money for something that will do you no good. Ask your personal physician whether a crash diet is really right for you. Better, start hanging out with people who are into physical fitness and join in. Unlike a crash diet, this will result in real, sustained good results. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Back to Health Class: Ovulation does not produce HCG hormone. A fertilized egg that has traveled into the uterus and is implanted on the wall of the uterus and is growing big enough to leak some of this hormone into the mother's blood stream. It is often thought that one should wait two weeks after ovulation for this testing. ...Read more
40 weeks: We start dating pregnancy from the first day of the last menstrual period, since that is usually easier to recall than the date of conception. The date we expect the baby to be born is 40 +/- 2 weeks from that date. This can be confusing when you try to convert to months because it means pregnancy lasts 10 months! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anything i could do/take to lower my hCG levels? 3 transvaginal ultrasounds and 3 blood-tests show mc but dr. Won't treat, just wants more tests.
Price varies: It varies a lot from institution to institution. Best deal is to ask your ob/gyn office staff the costs for this procedure. You can ask other clinics that perform targeted sono and shop around for best deal. Sometimes the differences can be significant. ...Read more
Buyer Beware: Generally if an over the counter drug makes outlandish claims, it doesn't live up to the hype. Despite the manufacturer's assertions, no scientific studies have evaluated the drug in a prospective randomized trial published on PubMed. Thanks for trusting Health Tap! ...Read more
Last period was 8-28 negative test, slightly big stomach and doctors won't do a blood test or ultra sound what do I do ?
Echocardiogram: Acoustic waves (in the mega-hz so they can't be heard) are sent from the probe and the time the reflected wave takes to return is measured. This is similar to sonar. For moving structures, like valves and blood, the machine takes advantage of the doppler effect (notice the change in tone of the train whistle as it passes a station) to measure velocities. ...Read more
I'm 49 with 10-15 pound of tummy-fat I want to loose - I tried OTC hCG (2 btls) but it did not work - how do I get a stronger doctor prescription?
My dr confirmed I miscarried based a blood test, I have the paper work but I don't understand how he knows, it doesn't show my hcg levels?
See below: Ms. Kathryn 440: You have two related questions. It would be better to talk to your doctor for explanation. Blood HCG needs to be higher than 25 to diagnose pregnancy. It is not clear how a urine pregnancy test told you that you are 2-3 weeks pregnant. You may repeat the urine pregnancy test, be sure to follow the instructions for the test carefully. Better would be to see your doctor for a repeat blood test and if needed an ultrasound examination. ...Read more

As pregnancy progresses, women will experience more discomfort and may need to limit their activity. ...Read more
Tech or doc - which is better for ultrasound? I've got a high risk pregnancy, and everything's going fine so far, but sometimes my doctor does an ultrasound and sometimes it's a tech. Should i ask that only one of them do it each time? I'm not really wo
My urine test shows creatinine is 1.3. Blood tests show urea 3.5 and persistent low egfr 55. What does it mean? What do I need to do? Feel really ill.
Find cause: Assuming your creatinine is blood level; mine runs 1.5 or so as i'm a muscle kind of guy but it's high for a lady. This old-fashioned pathologist doubts the value of in lab-generated egfr's in the absence of known kidney disease. Anything from serious disease to over-the-counter painkillers can raise creatinine / compromise the kidneys for at least a while. Follow up & consider other causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If your are pregnant/breast feeding I would avoid this. Otherwise, it appears to relatively safe. The supplement is a mix of several: sphaeranthus indicus, garcinia mangostana, garcinia cambogia and chromium polynicotinate. There are multiple small studies which do demonstrate some short term benefits, but in the end, I would urge you to consider any weight loss supplement as a solution. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
