Hi,
My liver tests are as follows:
Bilirubin Direct : 0.3 mg/dL, Bilirubin Indirect : 1.8 mg / dl, Globulin : 5.6 g / dL 
Should I be concerned
?

? Gilbert's disease: It is a familial (autosomal dominant), common (2-5% of people), unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (blood bilirubin measures 1-5mg/dl), not due to breakdown of blood. It is associated with reduced enzyme levels of udp glycuronyl transferase, that results in jaundice when patients fast or suffer an infection. It does not shorten life or raise insurance rates, but may predispose to tylenol (acetaminophen) toxicity. ...Read more

Can't say: A viable pregnancy is determined by the presence of fetal heart motion, so it is certainly not viable at this time. The poorly rising levels in the last few numbers do not bode well for the chances. ...Read more

Hi Dr. I have been advised to take 5000 -10 000 mcg of biotin a day. My pack recommends 1 tablet a day which contains 300 mcg a day. Which is correct?

Hi Dr. I have been advised to take 5000 -10 000 mcg of biotin a day. My pack recommends 1 tablet a day which contains 300 mcg a day. Which is correct?

Biotin is a vitamin: necessary for the formation of fatty acids and glucose and in the metabolism of amino acids and carbohydrates. Because deficiency of biotin is rare, there is no RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) for it. Normal intakes for adults are 30 to 100 mcg. As you can see 5000-10,000 is excessive. Eat more cauliflower, bananas, carrots, liver, salmon. Save your money. Supplements not needed. Stay well:) ...Read more

Petrified been taking prometrium 200 mg daily due to estrogen dominance does this bioidentical hormone increase my chances of breast cancer ?

Petrified been taking prometrium 200 mg daily due to estrogen dominance does this bioidentical hormone increase my chances of breast cancer ?

Very complex issue: The decision to take hormone therapy is quite complex & should be handled on a one on one basis. The doctor should evaluate each patients individual risk of breast cancer. Treatment should be at the lowest dose that alleviates the menopausal symptoms. There's a very small increase relative risk in breast cancer diagnosis. In symptomatic low risk women the benefit may outweigh the risk ...Read more

Are nuvarings good for longer than 4 months if kept in fridge? Ordered 90 day supply, forgot had 3 in fridge. Exp dates on boxes are 3/16 & 7/17.

Conditional, yes: If the Nuvaring are kept in the refrigerator then they tend to remain active in preventing pregnancy for up to one year. However, I would use supplemental barrier contraceptive such as a condom to be certain that there is no failure with the "expired" Nuvaring. ...Read more

Dose dalacin c 300 mg works correctly for infection ?

Dose dalacin c 300 mg works correctly for infection ?

Depends . . .: Whether any given antibiotic works depends upon whether the infection is caused by a sensitive bacteria. For instance, common cold is caused by a virus and thus won't be affected by any antibiotic. Anyway, dalacin c is a brand not sold in the states. Whether the generic Clindamycin will work "correctly" depends upon what caused your infection. Ask your doc for culture & sensitivity. ...Read more

The pH and count/concentration seem normal, but the volume seems low and I suspect your motility is low (should be >50% show normal forward movement after 1 hour).

Tsh 4.0 T3 (liothyronine) 27 T4 7.4 testosterone 58 tpo antibody 359 pregnant 7 weeks having chills no fever no overweight BMI 23 worried if something serious help?

Check with Dr.: Your tpo antibody is high, and more than a third of the women who test positive for thyroid peroxidase (tpo) antibodies while pregnant go on to develop abnormal thyroid hormone levels within two years, more followup needs to be done with these women. Your body maybe attacking your thyroid gland. This is not an emergency please do not panic and talk to your doctor. ...Read more
