Choose Better Health: An important step is to truly decide that you want to lose weight and improve your health. When you say that you "need" to lose weight, perhaps you mean that you "want" to lose weight for yourself and your health. This is an important distinction. If you will do your part and allow yourself to have improved health it will happen (in most cases). It's simple physics! Move around more and enjoy! ...Read more
Weight and dose: Effective medication dose and patient weight do not necessarily correlate. There is an effective dose range for medications and in general we start with a low dose and move up based on efficacy and tolerability. Heavy patients sometimes only need low doses and vice versa. Starting at a high dose can cause a person to have side effects and problems that would not have happened at low dose. ...Read more

Facial hair: If you otherwise have normal hair and a normally developed penis then it might be just how you are and you will save money on shaving supplies. If there really is too little hair or not normal otherwise, there are blood tests that can be used to check if there are any problems causing this. Some are genetic (run in families or are inherited or born with) and some due to problem with hormones. ...Read more

Heavy vaginal bleed: See your gynecologist. Heavy, prolonged bleeding like that can lead to anemia (depleted iron in the blood causing weakness, fatigue). The gynecologist can recommend medications to slow/stop the bleeding after an exam to make sure everything is alright. If you are sexually active, they'll probably do a pregnancy test first to make sure it isn't a spontaneous miscarriage. ...Read more

Is it normal to have your period 2x this month and it is very heavy could my body be going through a change? I'm only 33 years old
Not unusual: Although it could indicate hormonal changes and pregnancy should always be ruled out, a change in your period frequency or duration is often because of stress - whether it be physical or emotional. This can also indicate a problem with your thyroid gland, or fibroids in the uterus. If you are not pregnant and your period does not regulate over the next 2 months, I recommend you see your Gyne. ...Read more

No, first: Check if you're diluting it right, and whether you are giving the right amount for his weight/expected weight.

I usually have a very heavy menstrual, but for the last two days I've only had spotting on tissue. The only change is I was prescribed flaygle?
Menstrual change: Well, the menstrual cycle can change any time you make a change in your life/diet/etc. Because the hormonal balance is very delicate. It certainly could change after starting a new medication. If you are sexually active, it is always worth taking a pregnancy test, just to make sure. If negative, then just see what happens in the next couple cycles after finishing the antibiotic. ...Read more
Hey my son was laying down using his phone and then he dropped his phone on his chin. He feel his jaw a bit more locked. Any exercises for this?
Had sinus issues in my life. I get stuffy at times when in AC or temp changes. Should I avoid having a window ac unit then or suffer in the heat??
Stuffy: The change in temp can bring on congestion and AC units can get fungus to grow in them. With that said, if you keep the unit clean and once your reach a comfortable temperature I think you will find the cooler enviroment more comfortable and I do not think your congestion will persist. ...Read more

Period five days late. Started brown, then pink, then red. Now mix of brown, dark red and light. Usually it's heavy and bright red. What changed it?
If you had sex since your last period, you may wish to do a home pregnancy test, just to be sure.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Hey I've been having a really hard time loosing weight although I've changed my diet and been doing exercise still not loosing weight any ideas why?
Many possibilities..: And many questions I can't ask you in this format. You may wish to consider doing a live virtual consult for personalized advice. Food choices, mindset, amount of fiber/carbs/protein, current weight, rest, hormones and more all affect weight loss. If you are drinking 2-3L of water, eating a balanced high fiber/low sugar diet of REAL foods (eating clean) and exercising without results be seen :) ...Read more
