Dr. Chevies newman, does mthfr mutation prevent body from processing folic acid or doing it well? I hear it takes time to build up folate. As I didn't start that early, I am worried about neural tube defects.

Dr. Chevies newman, does mthfr mutation prevent body from processing folic acid or doing it well? I hear it takes time to build up folate. As I didn't start that early, I am worried about neural tube defects.

He's right but...: Since you are heterozygous you will be able to convert some Folic Acid to the active l-5-mthfr form. Also, hopefully your diet had adequate folate (folic acid) from green leafy veggies etc. Because 30% of people have folate (folic acid) metabolism issues I advise women to take prenatals that have the l-5-mthf form. If worried you can get imagining studies to check for neural tube defects. ...Read more

Is it ok to fly with a 7 week old infant from philadelphia to orlando florida?

Is it ok to fly with a 7 week old infant from philadelphia to orlando florida?

Yes, but: My experience finds most travel well at that age ; sleep for most of the flights. However, the first 2 months is a worrisome period for infection where any fever could reflect germs acquired at birth. If you go it is important to avoid germ exposures. ...Read more

Will Orlando FL be safe for pregnant woman to travel to in December because of Zika?

Will Orlando FL be safe for pregnant woman to travel to in December because of Zika?

Most likely yes: The only areas of Florida where Zika is carried by the local mosquitoes are two areas of Miami-Dade County. The Zika carrying mosquitoes have not been found as north as Orlando. Remember, however, that this is a fluid situation. You should be okay in Orlando. You can always stay up to date on further developments at the webpage: www. Cdc. Gov ...Read more

I recently found out I am pregnant. I have a trip coming up to Universal Studios Orlando which I will be between 6 and 7 weeks (from the start of my last period) pregnant. I would like to know if it is safe to ride the rides at the park?

I recently found out I am pregnant. I have a trip coming up to Universal Studios Orlando which I will be between 6 and 7 weeks (from the start of my last period) pregnant. I would like to know if it is safe to ride the rides at the park?

It depends: "Safety" on the rides is a matter of opinion when you are pregnant. Although the rides themselves are rated "safe" for use many of the rides produce gravitational forces that may initiate bleeding or cramping in pregnancy. If you are already experiencing cramping or bleeding prior to the trip, consult your treating OB MD's advice prior to departure. ...Read more

Would it be recommendable for someone with cystic fibrosis to breathe salt vapor in/at the salt room in orlando, fl.?

Would it be recommendable for someone with cystic fibrosis to breathe salt vapor in/at the salt room in orlando, fl.?

Good question...: While the process itself may be helpful in mobilizing secretions, I personally would be a bit hesitant to do this type of therapy in a public forum. You really don't know how sanitary they really are (they may tell you one thing, but.), and i'd be very concerned about the types of germs that could lurk in that type of large establishment. Can you find out anything about inspections/health code? ...Read more

My mother has an aortic aneurism. She is 74 years old. Is it safe for her to fly roundtrip from Charlotte, NC to Orlando, FL?

My mother has an aortic aneurism. She is 74 years old. Is it safe for her to fly roundtrip from Charlotte, NC to Orlando, FL?

What size?: The sense of gravity regarding aortic aneurysms really lies in their size. Larger aneurysms are more unstable and may be prone to rupture in the short term, which would prohibit being so removed from medical attention. Unless it's a really small aneurysm, I'd be concerned about the flight. ...Read more

I'm on vacation in orlando and I seem to have prickly heat rash all over my body. It's very itchy and irritating. I bought gold bond powder but it doesn't seem to be working. What else can I do?

Try over-the-counter: Hydrocortisone cream, but if that doesn't work either, give in and see a doc for diagnosis of what kind of rash: do you need a stronger steroid rash or an anti-fungal? A doc'll have to check out the rash to see. ...Read more

If you are healthy.: If healthy and not spot bleeding you will be fine to fly. Talk with OB about medications before you go. Avoid aspirin and Advil, etc. You can use Tylenol (acetaminophen) if needed. Get up and walk every 30 minutes or so to prevent blood clots in your legs, and make sure to drink plenty of water. Inactivity and dehydration will put you at risk for blood clots in the deep veins. Don't forget your prenatal vitamin ...Read more
