Folic acid: Folate (folic acid) is present in green, leafy vegetables, fruits, cereals, nuts, grains, and meats.

What are the food that a baby (6months old) with reflux anad high stomach acid that can not eat? Thank you

Large meals a no no: A six month old is probably on jar foods, such as fruit and vegetables and maybe meats. Reflux is best treated by small portions. If too much formula and jar food is given, alot of acid is made and the food refluxes into the esophagus. Try smaller feeds.

My S. Trigly is 320 & Uric Acid is 7.68 both are high, Pls tell me how to prevent it. Aside from med & exercise what foods shall I take? Thx doctor.

Low fat, purine.: For triglycerides the key is to limit fats, sugars, alcohol. If you smoke quitting will also help. For urticaria acid avoid alcohol, red meat, rich sauces. Uric acid is increased by purines. You can find a low purine diet on the internet as we'll. Triglyceride of 320 may be too high to lower by diet alone. If you are overweight loosing weight will also help both these numbers.

If you have a glutamate metabolism disorder...& then you eat a food high in glutamic acid (meat, gluten, casein. Etc), what happens to you? Symptoms?

If you have a glutamate metabolism disorder...& then you eat a food high in glutamic acid (meat, gluten, casein. Etc), what happens to you? Symptoms?

A lot: Glutamate overall is an excitatory protein in the body. It stimulates the perception of taste and appetite. It also acts on the pancreas and liver. Our bodies need some but too much can cause a lot of different problems such as weight gain, diabetes, and neurotoxicity. In addition to avoiding high glutamate foods it is useful to consume extra carnitine (high in red meat) to counter the glutamate.

Does high VitD3 & Calcium supplements interfere with absorption of Iron & Omega3 Fatty Acid from food for 57+ yr female?

They help each other: The do not compete directly. In fact, consuming essential fatty omega-3 fatty acids can increase vitamin D's ability to increase calcium absorption from the gut. This is especially important in improving bone mineralization and decreasing bone loss seen in osteoporosis. Vit D3 and omega-3 together can also improve the risk profile for peripheral vascular disease.

Hi Docs: If + for 2 MTHFR genes, what are possible effects on body from foods high in folate (folic acid)? And is it typical to have lowish (<6) serum folate (folic acid)?

Need more not less!: If you have a problem with two MTHFR genes, you actually need folic acid supplementation. Foods high in folate will help you not hurt you. I usually recommend 4mg of folic acid a day, along with 1000ug of B-12 and 100mg B-6 per day and a bab aspirin. Some women with the MTHFR defect have repeated miscarriages. In my experience, the above supplements decrease the risk of this. Best wishes!
