Testosterone & OCD: By all means please tell your doc about your experience w/testosterone and OCD. It is important for him/her to know that when thinking about dose and effectiveness.

I have a cold sore and my two month old may have touched my lip and then put his hands in his mouth. Are the chances high that he'll get hsv-1?

I have a cold sore and my two month old may have touched my lip and then put his hands in his mouth. Are the chances high that he'll get hsv-1?

It depends on...: If a cold sore is freshly oozing, there are lots of viruses there. If it hasn't broken open, or has already scabbed over, there is less chance of viral transmission. Since herpes type 1 virus infections happen to the great majority of people, it is extremely hard, if not nearly impossible, to prevent oneself from being infected during his lifetime. A baby should be checked, if any signs of herpes. Read more

Can taking nutraceuticals cause elevated liver enzymes? How do I get my dad to stop taking them? What should I say so that he'll listen? So worried...

Can taking nutraceuticals cause elevated liver enzymes? How do I get my dad to stop taking them? What should I say so that he'll listen? So worried...

Find ethical guide: The glitzy sucker ads that fascinate your dad offer a sense of intellectual superiority and empowerment. He'll continue to waste money on pills that are often not what they are supposed to be. The best remedy is to get him under the care of an ethical local specialist in holistic medicine, preferably a physician or working under one's supervision. This would turn a problem into a major plus. Read more

Hi m ALT is always go high wha would be the problem even I am an very diet?

Find cause: Your physician may repeat this when you off all alcohol and meds for two weeks. Trust this is not high alt from very heavy exercise. If still high, important to rule out hepatitis b, hepatitis c, wilson's, hemochromatosis, and autoimmune hepatitis. All are life-threatening and fairly easy to treat. If still high, seek more guidance; your labs & health may benefit from a fitness-focused lifestyle. Read more

Hi My prolactine level is slightly high. What does it means?? thanx in advance

Hi My prolactine level is slightly high. What does it means?? thanx in advance

Prolactin: A "slightly high" prolactin level should have very little affect on you. Lab data provides a normal range for all studies but they are necessarily indicators for all. If you are feeling OK and your doctor is comfortable with your result you can relax. Your doctor is likely to see you in follow up every 3-6 months and of course he/she will see you more quickly if you a not feeling as well as you sh Read more

Hi! I have mpv very high but patelets count normal! Do I have to be worried about it? Thank you

Platelets: MPV=mean (average) platelet volume. This is a fairly insignificant calculation from analysis of the blood by modern analyzers. It does not correlate with any known diseases when the platelet count is normal. So best to not worry about it. Read more

Hi, my husband takes his high pressure pill in the morning, what should he do if he forgot then remembered late in the afternoon? Thx.

Hi, my husband takes his high pressure pill in the morning, what should he do if he forgot then remembered late in the afternoon? Thx.

OK to take it: If he takes one pill a day, he should take it in the afternoon. If he forgets for a whole day, he should just resume his regular medicine regimen in the morning. Blood pressure management is a long-term affair and is unlikely to be seriously compromised by missing a single day. Read more

Hi I currently get average grades at math but I want to get high grades. How can I get better grades? I know study time does not increase grades.

Key is understanding: Study time will perhaps slightly increase grades, but what's most important is that you truly understand the concepts taught in class. If you don't understand the concepts, rote memorization will not help you. If your teacher is ineffective, consider hiring a tutor. Once you understand the concepts, then practice-practice-practice problems will increase your speed in test taking. Read more
