Midparent height: Ask this question again and be sure to input both of your parents height. We can calculate an estimate for you based upon this! Essentially it is the average of your parents heights, plus two inches for a boy. Then give or take two inches more or less. This is the range of your projected final height. ...Read more

Not good to obsess..: It's not good to obsess about something one can do nothing about. At age 19, girls are finished growing in height (except for a few rare cases). However, one can get a healthy amount of calcium, vitamin d, and exercise... To maintain the current height. Girls also can wear heels (not too high or risk bad ankle injuries). ...Read more

Hi, I'm 22 yrs old, F. Just wanna ask about my sputum results. 1stday: No AFB seen, PUS cells:few, Epithelial cells:few. 2nd day same except PUS:rare?

Pus cells;WBCs: Pus cells are white blood cells. It is normal to have a few or rare pus cells in a sputum but it would be concerning for infection if there were large numbers of them. AFB are acid fast bacilli and these are a marker for tuberculosis. The results are normal on both days with no sign of infection or AFB. However if they are concerned about TB with you then a sputum culture is needed. ...Read more

See a surgeon: You should not try to "dig" things out of a lump: you can get a nasty infection. See your doctor and get a referral to a surgeon for best diagnosis and removal of what's there. ...Read more

Do doctors still shave pubic hair for child birth?

Do doctors still shave pubic hair for child birth?

No: There is really no need to shave or clip the pubic hair for a vaginal birth. If a woman requires a cesarean delivery then the lower abdomen is cleared of hair by clippers. (just where the incision will be made). ...Read more

My child got nits IV used nit lotion. But eggs are still der. Wht shal i do?

My child got nits IV used nit lotion. But eggs are still der. Wht shal i do?

Wash them out: If you've killed the lice and nits remain there are helpful adjuncts to use. Some have success with a stout vinegar used as a wash/rinse.It loosens the glue holding the nit to the hair and helps them separate easier.Also use a nit comb, that usually comes with the nix (permethrin) or other treatment. Pickling vinegar is stronger than regular and may work faster. It can be repeated daily until clear. ...Read more

I'm16, I am around 5'7 and 125-130 pounds dad is 5'11, mum is 5'5. I started growing facial hair in gr 9. Last growth spurt gr7-8. Did i stop growing?

Depends: An estimate using parental height gives your expected final height as 5'10.5"but you are shorter than expected on a growth chart. A simple x-ray of the left hand & wrist can be assessed for bone maturity and see how much longer you will grow. If the xray shows open growth centers you have more time to grow, if the growth centers have closed you are done. ...Read more

19 yo male im 5'6. Dad=5'11, mom=5'2. Dad inseam=32, my inseam=32. I've never had the pubertal growth spurt. Could my spine still have a growth spurt?

19 yo male im 5'6. Dad=5'11, mom=5'2. Dad inseam=32, my inseam=32. I've never had the pubertal growth spurt. Could my spine still have a growth spurt?

No: The majority of your "growth" is thru your legs. Your growth plates here are more than likely closed which typically occurs by age 18. Your shoulders may still get broader as your collarbone growth plates are some of the last to fuse. Unfortunately you may be on the shorter side. There are worse things in life my friend. ...Read more

Sleep Clinic: In many cases Alprazolam is not even close to the best approach to solve your problems. I always recommend getting help from the sleep clinic. There are also significant books on how to relearn how to sleep without pills. Good sleep hygiene and this natural approach may also help you. ...Read more
