If I am injured and can no longer do weight training should I still drink whey powder? I am trying to lose weight.
Make Lasting Changes: A weight loss program has to be something you can live with for the long-term. Its better to eat healthy, natural proteins like meats, fish and veggies than to drink whey. Avoid liquid calories of any kind. Eliminating "white" carbs will go a long way also. This means sugar, white flour products as well as white rice and white pastas. This + regular exercise = steady weight loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I can not fully extend my right knee, can't put weight on it, and it's very painful. I don't think I injured it. It's been hurting for a couple weeks.
Cannot extend knee: hello ~ if you cannot extend the knee and its painful, it sounds like you could have a bucket-handle tear of the meniscus in the knee. You dont have to have had a severe injury to tear the cartilage. So please make an appointment to see an Orthopedist and he will order an MRI of knee if he feels it is indicated. It may be a simple sprain but your symptoms demand investigation. Ibuprofen for pain ...Read more
Injured tip of big toe dropping a heavy weight on it a couple of summers ago. I am training for a marathon now and same area painful to touch no mark?
After doing a flip, I fell weirdly and injured my knee. Whenever I put weight on it, it feels like someone is stabbing my knee. What could it be?
Torn meniscus: you may have torn one of the structures in the knee joint called a meniscus. There are two,one on each side of the joint. They guide and cushion motion in the joint. You probably pinched one when you fell. They are attached to the inside of the knee joint and are pulling on the internal structures. See your PCP or an orthopedic surgeon. You may need an MRI of the knee as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had NASH with LFT 4x normal, stage 1 fibrosis. Lost weight and have normal LFT one year. Is it possible to reverse fibrosis? Is my liver still injured
Possibly: though we don't know for sure. even if the damage is lasting though, your scarring is pretty minimal and as long as you keep the weight at a healthy level and your enzymes in the normal range (ie no further scarring) your liver should serve you well for the next 70 years. Regular exercise, plenty of veggies, no excessive alcohol/OTC drugs will also help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can the body neurologically, i.E. W/o voluntary control, shift weight off a hip/pelvis that is injured but had steroids put in for pain control?
