Cancer cell loves sugar.R  fruits not suitable as cancer patients' diet? Read sum books tat veggie n fruit diet can inhibit cancer cell.Is tat correc?

Not effective: Cancer cells survive by outcompeting your normal cells. They certainly thrive on sugar, but all cells do. If you were to limit sugar, to starve out cancer, you would starve out every other cell as well. Veggie and fruit diets have health benefits but no proven anti-cancer benefits. ...Read more

Looking for new, creative drug combos to help control blood sugar (type 2). ?

Looking for new, creative drug combos to help control blood sugar (type 2).  ?

Many options: The best combination will depend on ur clinical characteristics, insurance coverage, personal preference & tolerability. In general, the best combination would be something that does not cause weight gain/hypoglycemia & is well tolerated. From the arsenals we current have, i believe the combination that comes closest to the criteria above would be: metformin + glp-1 or metformin + dpp-iv inhibitor. ...Read more

Help please! is animal protein a powerful cancer promoter?

Help please! is animal protein a powerful cancer promoter?

Of course not: Whoever told you this was simply lying. It makes no sense biologically, and vegetarians have no advantage over meat-eaters in terms of longevity or any category of illness including cancer as shown in the last few big studies. Ignore zealots like this -- they're almost always offering disinformation. If you want to become a vegetarian, just acknowledge it's for moral reasons and supplement wisely. ...Read more

Alaska. Breast cancer. Now bills and big ins. Exclusions. What to make of e.G., cpt 36561 port insrt billed $4115 and ins company excludes $3521?

Costs: Insurance companies decide what they pay or cover based on cpt codes. Each area of the us has different pay schedules for these cpt codes. Also each insurance company may pay differently. Also hmo insurances, medicare or medicaid insurances may pay some of the lowest rates. I do not know what insurance type you have. If you have concerns, call your insurance company to see what is covered or paid. ...Read more

Went on 1200/day cal diet 4 high cholesterol, numbers good now,can't afford 2 lose more weight,how many calories now to maintain & keep good numbers?

Need more info: What is your height and weight? What are your lipid levels, not just cholesterol? Exercise is good for raising good cholesterol and lowering bad cholesterol. It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered your cholesterol tests.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Is vh essentials BV homeopathic treatment a good product to use for recurring bv, when prescription don't work?

Is vh essentials BV homeopathic treatment a good product to use for recurring bv, when prescription don't work?

Who knows?: You can try anything you would like, but the benefits can only be assessed by results. My recommendation if the rx did not work would be to go back to the doctor who prescribed it and find out whether the issue is what they thought it was and whether a change in medication is indicated. ...Read more

No one best diet: There is no one best diet for everyone but i share your concern about the excessive protein that low-carb advocates advise. I've written an essay on the pros & cons of various diets including low-carb vs. Low-fat diets at http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/01/20/diet-and-health/ my favorite diet book is eat to live by joel fuhrman md.

What is the best way to fight an insurance co that denies approval for a rhizotomy recommended by 3 mds? Appeal letter sent; 2 peer:peer reviews done

Keep fighting: The only way to win is to persevere. This is a stare down competition the first person to look away loses. It sucks that it takes all this effort, but it took me and one of my patients almost 1.5 years to get procedure approved. We never waivered and obviously the treatment helped and was appropriate for care which inevitably helped. Good luck! ...Read more

Post cardio snack?  Protein & high on the glycemic index for my advanced strength traing. But what's good post cardio such as 5k 7mph. Fat loss goal

Try drinking water: And not having a snack. If you want to enhance fat burning during cardio, have a cup of tea or coffee about 30 minutes prior to exercise (without sugar or sweeteners). This will help mobilize fat stores and improve endurance during your work out. Iced tea or coffee is good. And if you must have a snack try raw carrots, celery, other vegetables with hummus. Unsalted roasted almonds are good too. ...Read more

Fasting gluc (serum) 110 despite home monitor saying 75.  No family history,  exercise all the time,  eat healthy.  Puzzled. Type 2 likely in future?

Check further: With a fasting glucose of 110, it is time to get further testing. A 2 hour glucose tolerance test can give you some good information on your status. It would also be a good idea to get on a low carbohydrate/low glycemic food plan and make sure you exercise. Get in for a good evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

Low calorie: Watch your calories. Avoid processed foods with unnatural ingredients. Find filling, low calorie foods like whole wheat. Also pay attention to what u drink-soda, alcohol, etc can have a lot of calories. Exercise regularly. To lose weight u need to burn more calories than you consume. Read on Mediterranean diet and see if you can follow. In the end, it's lifestyle changes rather than specific diets ...Read more

Harvard's recent research: "gut flora is key to either gaining or losing weight, pill on the horizon". What food alters bad bacteria into good ones?

Doubtful: Body weight is calories in versus calories out. I could only find articles about obesity and gut bacteria in obscure journals (help me, anyone?) and i suspect this is just one more fake internet story. I bet dimes-to-dollars this "pill" never appears, but until it does, why not head down to the gym and have a really good time working and eating with fitness-focused friends? ...Read more
