Be patient: Babies are often difficult little consumers when it comes to "doing what mommy wants." when it comes to foods & specifically the baby foods from jars, they may reject them based on texture, taste or just cause they "don't wanna". Why fight the battle. Other foods have many of the needed nutrients. Try feeding them at the dinner table while others eat or modify something you have for them. ...Read more

What would cause a pet scan to not detect malignant melanoma that was about the size of a chocolate easter egg? I also have type II diabetes.

Finally, smaller tumors are always harder to see, no matter which imaging technique is used. ...Read more
