Proven infection?: Masturbation does not cause urinary infection. Frequent masturbation however may irritate the genitalia and lead to discomfort with urination. A urine culture will verify whether or not you are actually having infection. Have your urine tested appropriately with your doctor to guide proper therapy and treatment. ...Read more

I'm a couple days from 12 weeks prego and I can't move my bowels is it safe to take a laxative I drink plenty water but no luck ever?

Safest one: Is Miralax (polyethylene glycol)....it just draws water into the colon. Helps get everything around the big baby lump. Makes it a LOT easier to get that baby out when the time comes! Start with 1 cap in 6-8 oz of non-carbonated liquid every day until you are cleared out all the way. Then reduce to every other day to see if you can still maintain a soft BM daily. Adjust as needed. Softeners don't really work. ...Read more

Could my UTI of 2 weeks not go away because I'm breastfeeding? My uti never last this long. Not taking any meds. Drinking plenty water & cranbr juice.

Could my UTI of 2 weeks not go away because I'm breastfeeding? My uti never last this long. Not taking any meds. Drinking plenty water & cranbr juice.

Maybe/not: We know now that cranberry juice does have chemical agents which interfere with the ability of e.coli to thrive in the bladder. We also know that not all burning during urination is due to a UTI. The fact is you may or may not have or have had a UTI and the symptoms may persist because you are not treating it. Proper evaluation & exclusion of this or other possibilities would be a wise choice. ...Read more

Add Miralax (polyethylene glycol): Constipation or stool holding is not uncommon at 22 months of age. It is very difficult to make a toddler eat the required amount of fiber/juice daily to overcome hard stools. To treat the stool holding/constipation I recommend 1/2 capful of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily-an otc stool softener-adjust the dose so your child has 1-3 soft easy thin stools daily. I would continue it for 4-6 months. ...Read more

Diorrhea. Continuous for five days, water like. Am drinking plenty of water, any suggestions as I feel awful?

See your doctor: Diarrhea can lead to electrolyte imbalances, so I would suggest drinking a rehydration solution or sports drink to help replenish these. Taking a probiotic has also been shown to help - yogurt can be eaten if you have that readily available, but I would see your physician soon as possible if it is continuous for 5 days. Antibiotics can help some types of diarrhea. ...Read more

Drinking plenty of water is supposed to be good for you. Right? Too much water make me sick. My body craves sweet fruity drinks more than water.

Habits: Craving is a phenomenon of habit. It is not biology or physiology. It is a symptom of addiction and is not in any way a message from your body that you really 'need' this for your health. This is addiction. Plain and simple and something to work on changing by stopping the product you crave! ...Read more

My BP is staying around 138/93. I don't eat a lot of salty foods and I drink plenty of water. Should I see my dr?

Yes: Your systolic is in the higher range of normal and the diastolic is above the recommended level. Hypertension is diagnosed by measuring the blood pressure in 3 separate settings by a health professional. I agree with your instinct to have your blood pressure checked by your doctor to ensure that you either have normal BP or need medications ...Read more

Without shirt, or clothing you get dehydrated faster and get headache.) wear bright color clothes.

Can fasting and drinking plenty of water lower blood sugar?

Can fasting and drinking plenty of water lower blood sugar?

Yes: To a point, yes. Eating less obviously means less calories in which leads to a lower blood sugar. If your sugar gets too low however your body will kick in mechanisms to bring it back up and often over corrects it initially. Fasting for short periods is good for health - reduced caloric intake is the only proven method of life extension - meaning we all eat way more than we need! Think paleo diet. ...Read more
