Day 3: MSM 1000mg for torn ankle ligament on own. Doc said surgery. Take fish oil 2000mg, vit C 500mg. Now period longer. 8d, normal 5d. MSM related?
MSM 1000mg: is a low dose if taken daily. There are some patients that notice a change in their menstruation cycles when taking this...usually it is a skipped period or a lighter one. Fish oil, Vit C and MSM are all excellent supplements to take as long as they don't interact with any other meds you may be on. With any ankle surgery I typically have my patients taking similar dosing before and after! ...Read more

Continue workup: Silybum marianum / milk thistle is one of the botanicals that may help some liver diseases by competing with the site that activates toxins; studies have been mixed. I hope the workup will continue in order to rule out wilson's, hemochromatosis, hepatitis c, and autoimmune hepatitis, all treatable & deadly if missed. A lifestyle change may also help liver enzymes. Big picture. Good luck. ...Read more
Stage4Cancer(started in breast mid-late 50s female)do u think "Biotech nutritions-Pure Graviola 1300mg"gelatin free dietary supplement would help her?

If she wants to to try a nutritional adjunct, there are total immersion programs for cancer. Some examples are Dr Lorraine Day's 10 Step Program for Cancer Treatment and Eden Valley Institute of Wellness. These are both great adjunctw. Best wishes! ...Read more

Biotin, folic acid, collagen, evening primrose, fish oil all taken together daily, is it ok? I am 26 female. No pregnancy plan.Hypervitaminosis?
Totally fine: Hypervitaminosis is a term that refers to toxic levels of vitamin a, d or e, which you clearly don't have since you are not taking any of those! biotin and Folic Acid are essential nutrients that are non-toxic and prevent birth defects. Evening primrose ; fish oil provide essential fatty acids ; are very safe. Collagen is not essential but also quite safe. You have no need to worry. ...Read more

High vitamin C: Hi! Camu Camu has very high levels of vitamin C. We know that vitamin C is helpful, but 1) there is no evidence that vitamin C from Camu Camu would be any better for us than that from other supplements; 2) the amount of vitamin C in a given amount of Camu Camu is not reported or regulated, so there's going to be a lot of variation in your actual dose. I can't recommend it. ...Read more
I ve been prescribed a prenatal multivitamin that contains 1500IU vitaminA(as acetate) and1500IU as betacarotene.Is it safe 2 take from day1 of pregna?
Yes: There is evidence that ingesting over 10,000 units of Vit A in early pregnancy increases risk of birth defects so 1500 iu is well within the safe range as long as your dietary intake is less than 5000 iu/day. Developing babies need Vit A. It would be unusual to get 5000 iu of A a day via diet- see http://www.epi.umn.edu/let/pubs/img/adol_appendix.pdf for sources. No need to limit beta carotene. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm eleven weeks pregnant, between time and time i can see so little blood from vagaina is that normal?Already I have two kids now.
Depends on age: If you have an obese infant, it is still important to provide a minimum amount of calories and breastmilk or formula mixed to the right concentration to avoid electrolyte abnormalities. Older children can be placed on diets, but it is important to have this catered to the age of the child so that he or she is still getting in enough of the right calories + nutrition for adequate growth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

5 m/o diet: It is perfectly fine for a 5 month old to just eat breast milk or formula (breast is best!). If that really does not seem to be satisfying the infant, small amounts of infant rice or oatmeal cereal can be added, as can pureed fruits and vegetables. Leave 3-4 days in between introduction of new foods to monitor for food sensitivities. Remember, though, their milk is the priority for the diet still! ...Read more
