Vomiting: A miserable symptom of usually a benign viral illness or case of food poisoning, can also represent more serious conditions like gallstones, appendicitis, pregnancy or pancreatitis. Avoid taking anything orally for 3-4 hours and seek professional help for unrelenting vomiting, fever or localizing abdominal pain. Try adding back fluids and light foods very slowly as tolerated. ...Read more

How long do I have to fast before bloodwork? Im type 1 diabetic and sometimes my blood sugar goes low in the middle of the night and I have to eat. Is there anything i can eat to avoid having to wait all day to eat anything in order to pass this blood wo

U can't with a low: If you have a low blood sugar in the middle of the night, you have to treat it. That would put a kink in morning fasting labs. My concern would be to prevent the lows; you shouldn't have to feed your diabetes to get thru the night. The problem is to sort out why you're having overnight lows and prevent them. Please discuss with ur doc. Fasting is going 8-12 hours without food. ...Read more

I am constipated rather frequently even if i eat plenty of fiber and always drink water. I take senna when i need to, but what could be the cause?

I am constipated rather frequently even if i eat plenty of fiber and always drink water. I take senna when i need to, but what could be the cause?

A sluggish colon: A common problem is a very sluggish (moving material through) and efficient (removing water from the stool) colon. A problem when you have bloating and discomfort as a result - but not a problem with absorption of "toxins". You need to help your colon to be more active. Senna is bad - you develop a tolerance and become addicted to it. Stool softeners, mom, glycolax are ok, even daily. ...Read more

Salt/thyroid: Try cutting down on salt in your diet. This means not just not adding salt to food but also avoid fast food, prepared foods and canned foods. Also see your doctor for thyroid, glucose and kidney function tests to make sure there is no other cause for your swelling. ...Read more

If I drink a lot of water or gorteraid I still feel dehydration and I don't know what to do my BP been running low can my condition  effect this?

What condition?: If you are suffering extreme thirst, definitely check your blood sugar to rule out diabetes. A visit to your physician is in order. We certainly need more details about your past history of syncope to give more advice here. But in general, a low blood pressure and history of syncope would not cause extreme thirst! ...Read more
