56 year old male, do drink every night, have high ferritin. Recently find that muscles burn whilst working in workshop, legs cramp, twitching in sleep?

Hemochromatosis?: High ferritin may be a sign of hemochromatosis, a disease of excess iron storage in liver and other organs. If diagnosed and treated early, its serious complications (cirrhosis and heart and gonadal failure) can be prevented or reduced. I recommend you see a hematologist. ...Read more

What is a good drink to drink when working in the heat?

Water: Water is best. If you've become dehydrated, sports drinks (like gatorade) can be helpful. However, they're full of sugar, so it's better just to keep yourself hydrated by steady water consumption. ...Read more

Sir am working in super market soft drink section. Now sir some time brown cough coming...What is this....Am very confuse?

Not the soft drinks: It is not an effect of the soft drinks directly. You probably have allergy, and yes it could be to the soft drinks if they pop. The color of your secretion is from the cells involved in the inflammation. Allergy sometimes causes popping of the superficial blood vessels and cause yellow or brownish secretion. Eosinophils and basophils from allergy can also cause discolored secretions. ...Read more

Is it okay to drink beer then working out?

Is it okay to drink beer then working out?

But why would you?: Seriously, if your goal is weight reduction, beer is very high in empty, non-nutritive calories. You can't spot reduce, so aiming for specific reduction in abdominal circumference may prove frustrating. Abdominal exercise will certainly tone your 6-pack which you can show off nicely once total weight reduction is achieved. There is no substitute for healthy eating & exercise to reach your goal. ...Read more

Will I benefit more from drinking gatorade when working out rather than water?

Will I benefit more from drinking gatorade when working out rather than water?

Benefit how?: Gatorade is designed to replace the fluid lost to exercise in the humidity and heat. If you are not losing lots of fluid you shouldn't need it, if fluid losses are affecting your performance then you may benefit. This takes a strenuous exercise, like playing football and getting very sweaty. ...Read more

Help docs, is gatorade healthy when working out? Should I drink before or after

Gatorade: ...just tastes good, but it probable no better than regular water... There are some electrolytes ('salts' and sugars) in Gatorade, but it is often much more sweet than good for you.
It is basically the same a drinking soda; it is better to hydrate with water both during and after- to wash out the waste products of muscles from working out and maybe dilute Gatorade 75% if you enjoy the taste.. ...Read more

I drink plenty of water yet I do not sweat much when I exercise. Could this be a sign that something isn't working properly?

Not everyone is the.: ...same. U probably have high unnoticeable sweating. Don't let this keep U away from proper hydration. A good way 2 know if U R Under hydrated is 2 watch the color of Ur urine. Someone who is dehydrated will have deeply yellow colored urine. A well hydrated person will have almost clear urine. Insensate water loss is seen in heat, , low humidity, & with a wind or breeze. ...Read more

What is your opinion on drinking beer before working out?

Not a good idea: The better person to ask would be a trainer, all of whom believe that use of alcohol is bad for athletes, especially when they are training. Obviously, this depends on whether we are talking about an occasional beer the night before, or heavier drinking. Alcohol can damage muscles and nerves, and causes metabolic changes that do not promote healthy metabolism. Wouldn't do it. ...Read more

For the last couple off days ive been really thirsty. But nothing I drink is working what does this mean?

It depends: It may be as simple as excessive thirst from dehydration, seasonal allergies causing throat irritation etc to more severe manifestation of diabetes in which case you would also be peeing more frequently. If your symptoms persist even after some OTC meds for symptomatic relief for the above possibilities, please see your GP fir an evaluation. ...Read more

When you are working out, when is best time to hydrate/drink water- before, during, after or all of these?

When you are working out, when is best time to hydrate/drink water- before, during, after or all of these?

Watered down Answer.: There are various ways to look at this. Water before and after should be sufficient to deal with the hydration issue. Hydrating during exercise uses valuable energy to absorb the water through the gut and thus reducing energy to the muscles target in the workout. Of course this is all predicated on your fitness level, temperature, humidity and various other parameters. ...Read more

I drink more than 3 drinks per day on average (working on cutting down). I took 1 325mg Acetaminophen pill this morning at 8AM. Any concerns of OD?

No: Even small amounts of alcohol daily may affect the liver and while taking acetaminophen of that amount may not cause an overdose, it may be dangerous for you if you have liver problems. I commend you on your effort to cut down, but more help may be needed. Your local AA is a good place to start for excellent support. There are also inpatient and outpatient rehab centers all over the country. ...Read more

How much water should I be drinking now that I'm working out more often? I have started a new exercise regime in order to lose weight. Is the standard 8 glasses of water a day sufficient or should I be hydrating more? Should I be drinking something other

How much water should I be drinking now that I'm working out more often? I have started a new exercise regime in order to lose weight. Is the standard 8 glasses of water a day sufficient or should I be hydrating more? Should I be drinking something other

Good hydration: Yes, a good rule of thumb is eight 8 oz glasses of h2o daily. But increase intake if high level of perspiration, hot climate, length of exercise. Weighing yourself prior to your exercise, then afterwards gives you an idea of how much water weight you've lost, which you should try to match with fluids. Adding some electrolytes to your water can help with "salt" loss. ...Read more

How long after working out is it appropriate to drink a protein shake?

How long after working out is it appropriate to drink a protein shake?

Within 45 mins: A protein shake is the most beneficial to your muscles for rebuilding and recovery within the first 30-45 mins of you working out. If you don't have a high protein intake throughout the day a shake can also help make up for that as your body does need it throughout the day as your body uses it for normal function as well as rebuilding your muscles. ...Read more

I drink a protein shake after working out - can you ever have too much protein?

Yes you can: The body can only put on a limited amount of protein in a day (varies with intake, disease state, etc). Dietary excess of protein requires can cause problems if there is any underlying decrease in kidney function (as may be seen with diabetes, aging, etc), can increase risk for kidney stones, dehydration (unless adequate h2o), liver abn.

Ok: Of course you can have a protein shake without working out, but you want to make sure that your total calorie intake during the day does not exceed your calorie expenditure (or you will gain weight) and that you do not take in an excessive amount of protein daily, which is not great for the kidneys.

Possibly: It certainly sounds temporally related. Classically grapefruit inhibit p450 cyp3a4 which would drive up the concentration of any medications also using that enzyme and giving you side effects not negation. Also Wellbutrin (bupropion) uses 2b6 and 2d6 which are not the same enzymes. This is nice in theory but you have a strong temporal association and should check in with your prescriber if feeling depressed ...Read more
