I usually have a glass of wine every night and have to have a drug and alcohol screening for a new job. Will this affect the results of the screening?

I usually have a glass of wine every night and have to have a drug and alcohol screening for a new job. Will this affect the results of the screening?

Probably not: But this depends on when you had the glass of wine relative to when the testing was done and whether you indicated to your potential employer that you usually have this in the evening. The probability is that your blood will no longer contain alcohol 8 hours after one glass of wine. You could also forego the wine the night before the test. ...Read more

How do you properly clean out glass from a wound?

How do you properly clean out glass from a wound?

Tricky: As the glass can be hard to see and removal without care can damage tissue around the glass. I recommend going to an er to check this out. Ultrasound is a great tool to look for residual glass in the wound. You might need antibiotics to treat/prevent infection. Overall, not a good idea to deal with this on your own. ...Read more

Will my son pass a 0.5 inch glass marble that he ate a few days ago?

Will my son pass a 0.5 inch glass marble that he ate a few days ago?

Almost certainly: A glass marble cannot be digested and will almost certainly pass intact. All the valves in the intestine will push this through. If it does get stuck the symptoms will be obvious. If you are really concerned you can collect the stool starting at about 20 hours to 3 days after the ingestion to see if it passed. If there are symptoms you may need to go to an er but this is highly unlikely. ...Read more

Your future . . .: Your future does not depend upon your figure & appearance. Your future is what you make of it, regardless of whether you have an hour glass like figure or not. That is not the point of eating healthy (search for mediterranean diet) & regular physical activity (search for strength, endurance, balance & flexibility exercises). Have confidence in yourself b/c of you, not b/c what someone else says. ...Read more

I am 18, 6'2, 340lbs ( my body types is long and curvy not round) i want to be 130 lbs. Will 130 lbs be under weight ? Will i lose my hour glass shape

Yes: At 74" and 130lbs your bmi would be 15.8 which is definitely underweight. What you refer to as an hourglass shape will likely be gone. And you will look malnourished. 180-200lbs will keep you at a healthy bmi. ...Read more

Hi, I stepped on a piece of glass and was wondering what to do; should I try to get it out or should I leave it alone for now (it is not very painful)?

Glass in foot: If you know it's a very small piece & not deeply imbedded, you can remove it; cleanse the wound; dress it (antibiotic ointment + sterile covering). If there's any doubt as to size, go to er where they may take radiograph to determine size & depth; er is also equipped to deal with significant bleed if glass is preventing artery from flowing freely. Make certain tetanus booster is up-to-date. ...Read more

It doesn't matter what made the cut if the exposure comes after the skin is open. The rusty nail is the classic source because it is on the ground to begin with when people step on it.

Also, there can be magnification or minification with astigmatism correction at the same time. Glasses are built specifically for your vision. ...Read more

How long does it take for a glass of alcohol to leave the body?

How long does it take for a glass of alcohol to leave the body?

8 hours: Alcohol has an approximate detection time of 12-24 hours in urine.
