? Gilbert's disease: It is a familial (autosomal dominant), common (2-5% of people), unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (blood bilirubin measures 1-5mg/dl), not due to breakdown of blood. It is associated with reduced enzyme levels of udp glycuronyl transferase, that results in jaundice when patients fast or suffer an infection. It does not shorten life or raise insurance rates, but may predispose to tylenol (acetaminophen) toxicity. ...Read more

Get second opinion: The combination could readily backfire, as the Elavil (amitriptyline) and Ativan can both cause anti-cholinergic side effects, and additive sedation, lethargy, and dizziness. Both very low dose, but nonetheless may cause more problems than success. Not clear why these two have been started together. ?Psych Concierge appt? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: One way to accelerate your ability to do pull-ups is to do "negative" pullups. Do as many pullups as you can (even if it's only one or two). Then stand on a block, so that you can use your legs to assume the pullup position (bar to chin), and then let gravity pull you down, resisting all the way. Repeat these "negative" pull-ups until you are exhausted. Repeat the regimen every day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If all types of scans showed zero stones, then why did I pass 4 stones only 5 days after my scans? How is this possible? Are the scans not accurate?
Stones: I don't know what type of imaging you had-ultrasound, plain xrays or ct scan, but nonopaque kidney stones may elude detection. In some cases the stones are obscured by shadows or the stones may have been in the urinary bladder and not the kidneys. Your physician or urologist can advise you best as he/she knows all your findings. ...Read more
How long do benzodiazans stay in the body and is five days enough time to pass a urine test if i only took 0.5mgs for the first time?
Good luck!: Benzo's can stay in urine for up to 6 weeks, depending on dose / frequency / etc. If 0.5mg, likely Ativan or xanax (alprazolam) (?), in therapeutic dose once, will need some luck, but may be below threshold for positive. Need to consider your recreational activities and if you need assistance with them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is my face breaking out close to the expiration of the mirena normal? I had the mirena put in 5 years ago. The expiration was dec. 8th. I had it removed yesterday and another one put in. I had zero complications over the course of the 5 years. However
I : I have never had a patient break out with acne close to the time the Mirena (levonorgestrel) needed to come out. Maybe the hormones in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) were not as effective as they were in the beginning and this may have contributed to your acne. It is hard to say. Your ob/gyn likely recommended an oral pill in conjunction with Mirena (levonorgestrel) to help your acne, but i dont think this is necessary. This is a lot of additional hormones you will be exposed to, which is not necessary and could increase your risk for other issues such as blood clots, etc. There are many other treatment options for your acne. See your primary care provider or dermatologist for an alternative treatment plan. Best of luck. ...Read more

Male 58,diabetic since last 12 years , heart patient . increase in serum creatinine from 0.98 to 1.4 in five months . does it show CKD ? what to do ?
See doc.: The increase in serum Cr indicates a significant decline in renal function and needs a good explanation. Degree of absolute dysfunction is not possible to estimate without more info. You should see your primary care doc or a nephrologist to help understand the underlying disorder. It could be as simple as dehydration or a medication effect, but could also represent a serious underlying disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

One of my partners had a vasectomy 5 yrs ago and got a sperm count and it came back zero. I'm pregnant. Any possible way he is the father?
Not very likely: Since Vasectomy is a highly effective method at preventing pregnancies (more than 99%) particularly after a confirmatory sperm count of zero and because the incidence or "recanalization" and of post-vasectomy pregnancy is so low, it seems very unlikely that this "one of your partners" would be responsible for your pregnancy. ...Read more
8 weeks 5 days pregnant, very painful dental abscess, what shall I do and what are the risks to my baby? Are there any treatments with zero risk?
Risk: I do not know of any interventive treatment with no risks. In your situation obviously if you had treatment prior to conception that would have been ideal. I would suggest consulting with an endodontist for treatment but present to your obstetrician for a letter of clearance for treatment. Ideally interventive treatment is preferred after the first trimester and before the third trimester. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ahh...: adrenal glands atrophied or decreased in function due to the steroids. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, if there is low bp after a long time on high steroids, the normal steroid secretion isn't happening. May need to take some non-prednisone medicines to compensate for that. Neeeds close endocrinologist attention. ...Read more
