My gas smells like rotten eggs. I stay away from foods that produce this odor. All foods give me this smell, so a food journal is worthless. Plz help?
Hydrogen sulphide: is a byproduct of bacterial breakdown of food i the colon and solving that issue can be problematic. Refer to this site for more information: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1727181/ Probiotics also are purported to be of benefit. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What is a good alternative supplement for fish oil? Fish oil tablets make me burp a lot with that yucky fishy taste.
You don't need this: Krill oil and fish oil are the new snake oil, both are high in omega 3 fatty acids which are extremely fragile. Omega 3 fish oils reduce triglycerides by impairing the liver's ablility to make them. However the oxidative stress caused by fish oil actually raises LDL cholesterol. Some day we may use the phrase "this is just more fish /krill oil" or "here comes the fish/krill oil salesman". ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Help,son 15 months old,opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested,mouth smells fish,don't think mercury free?
Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more

I bought a Nature's Way (Australia) 500mg Antarctic Red Krill Oil where it says to take 1 capsule daily with food. Is this dose from Krill Oil enough?
I stay away from eggs, leafy greens, milk + any else that can cause rotten egg/methane smelling gas. Yet my gas smells like rotten egg/methane. Why?
Bacteria: in your intestinal tract break down food and produce methane and hydrogen sulfide causing the odor. Improve the health of your gut bacteria by eating probiotic foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchee, or aged cheeses. You can also take probiotic supplements.

Is there a way to supplement choline or lecithin without upset stomach? I've tried soy and egg yolk lecithin capsules with nausea and diarrhea.
Try granules instead: Lecithin granules can be sprinkled on eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, salads, etc. They have a pleasant nutty taste. Start with small amounts and increase gradually as your digestion gets used to it. Eggs, dairy products, and meat are good natural sources of lecithin; you may not need any supplements unless you are on a vegan diet. ...Read more

Can someone with lactose intolerance consume calcium lactate? The lactate part made me think twice.
My dr told me 2 take Benefiber daily. I found fiber oral capsules were cheaper & easier to consume. Fiber caps r made of psyllium. Which better &why?
Benefiber may be: easier to take. The powder in a can format is easier and cheaper than capsules and you'll get a larger dose which which will help make you regular.

I've heard that foods( eg: fava beans) which improve HGH can also increase the testerone lv, will consume a lot of these foods make me less feminine?
Live wisely: People hear all sorts of things every day of their lives... But how much of it is true?... And for whom might it be true?... And what bad things might happen if one does too much of one thing, one food, one habit, or one activity? It's wise not to think much of this kind of stuff, so i wouldn't count on foods to alter growth hormone, testosterone, etc.; and would always eat a big variety of foods. ...Read more

Im feeling weekness in my body, so can i consume Elemental iron 70 MG+Folic acid 400 MCG+Succinic acid 210 MG capsule i.e tonoferon sf?
Hmmm...: There are hundreds or more conditions and diseases that can cause "feeling weakness" in one's body. So, why suspect low iron? A doctor might consider ordering some basic lab tests to check one's blood count, iron levels, chemistries, etc... That means, if this "feeling weakness" is worrisome or more than a few days in duration, a visit to the doctor is helpful. ...Read more
I was instructed to take CIPRofloxacin 2h apart from milk, what about food that contains milk e.g. milo?

Other products included in this rule are dairy products, antacids, multivitamins, or juices with added calcium. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
