Can a 17 year old take prenatal vitamins if not pregnant but to help with hair growth?

Can a 17 year old take prenatal vitamins if not pregnant but to help with hair growth?

It is safe: It is safe for a non-pregnant woman of child bearing age to take a pre-natal vitamin. I'm not so sure it is going to help a whole lot with your hair growth. Hair growth depends on many factors, just one of them being adequate vitamin intake. So i wouldn't do this thinking it's the magic bullet to long hair. ...Read more

What vitamins will help my hair grow long and how much a day should I take?

Is it ok for a 19 year old girl weighing 180lbs to take some pills to help them lose weight? Does it affect your fertility?

PIlls to lose weight: No. It is not okay. Pills are dangerous. They do not lead to true and lasting weight loss. They are actually a crime against health, but they make their makers a lot of money. Weight loss is about changing your life. It is about limiting calories...Eating less sugars and more protein. It is about moving and being active with a type of exercise that burns the right calories...Those pesty sugars. ...Read more

I'm trying to grow my hair out and people tell me that taking pre-natal vitamins helps it grow really fast. Is it okay to take when not pregnant?

Totally OK: It's best to take pre-natal vits BEFORE one becomes pregnant, as they're most important the first 2 weeks of pregnancy and many women don't know they're pregnant the first 2 weeks. Thus ALL women of childbearing age who are sexually active should take pre-natals preventively. Pre-natals are a multivit. with a limited amount of Vit A (too much A bad if pregnant). I advise multivits for everybody. ...Read more

What am I doing tnow as a teen that can stunt my growth and how can I avoid they factor that stunt my growth and when will I as a teen guy stop growin?

Positives are easier: The factors that support the best possible growth are good health, proper nutrition and exercise and proper sleep.If you are not doing these, it hurts.

I am 23years old girl i take medicines for pcod last 6 years and i want to know about is it good for my body to take medicines continous 6years and how it will effect my health?

A medicated life ??: Your question is a good one & one which challenges us to define necessary vs elective treatment. You wouldn't ask a diabetic to stop taking Insulin after they took it x years, their condition requires it for life. For someone with pcos, the life altering condition can create significant problems that are aided by medications, many of which have been used safely for decades.Discuss it with your doc. ...Read more

My husband wants to try adult nursing is that healthy? And how can I start lactating again?

My husband wants to try adult nursing is that healthy? And how can I start lactating again?

A little is ok: Breast milk is very nutritious, and excellent for babies, so will be of no harm to adults (in small amounts). Breast milk is too rich, so will give an adult too much animal fat (yes, we are animals) and many extra calories (not good for cholesterol levels and one's arteries). A woman may have a hard time re-starting lactation if she had stopped weeks or months ago. ...Read more

What can happen if a girl take prenatal vitamins & birth control at the same time?

No problem at all!: There is no interaction or problem with taking a vitamin, even prenatal ones, and using birth control. It in no way makes your birth control less effective. If you are of childbearing age, a daily vitamin is not a bad choice, because very few women actually get all and adequate amounts of vitamins in their diets consistently. ...Read more

VIT-D Deficiency: One billion people on earth are vit-d deficient including kids. Between 11 to 18 year age, 3-5 glasses of milk/day is needed for healthy bone growth. Vit-d helps calcium absorption. Blood test is available to see level (normal: 30 - 100). Depending on deficiency, her pediatrician will give rx. Some sunlight exposure is helpful.

I'm a 21yr old girl wondering what vitamins and supplements I should start taking- I prefer not too but it seems like that's a must do?

Not necessarily: If you eat a healthy whole food diet with plenty of veggies, some fruits & nuts, quinoa & plant based proteins/beans & you will feel great. Vitamins are important for people who do not have access to healthy foods, have GI malabsorption issues, are picky eaters or have other issues.

If she is thin, but not underweight (medically underweight, not just "i don't like it when she looks so skinny"), and she eats a healthy diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, then she's fine and doesn't need anything more. ...Read more

I'm a 16 year old girl and i'm 5'8 and want to gettaller. Can anyone recommend me diet/ exercise/ vitamins/ pills?

Depends: Most women finish growing taller at 16-17 or within 3 years of first menses. The hormones that trigger puberty start a growth spurt but eventually the growth centers will close. Once the growth centers close you are done.A single x-ray of your wrist/hand could be examined for growth centers.If open you could grow taller,if closed you are done.No special exercise,diet/vitamin or pills add height. ...Read more

Hi I'm 21 yrs girl n I never used any vitamins for the pass 10+ yrs... what kind of vitamins do u recommended for me to use?

First, healthy diet: Most experts recommend you get the nutrients you need from a widely varied diet high in veggies, fruits, whole grains, nuts & healthy oils. Most people don't eat like this, though. At your age, you need to especially include vit D & calcium, especially if you don't drink milk/eat yogurt, & folic acid, especially if your are considering pregnancy. A multivit with B complex, C & iron would be ok:) ...Read more

Pls suggest a good vitamin supplement for my 8 yr girl child.?

Pls suggest a good vitamin supplement for my 8 yr girl child.?

Plenty available: It is a mistake to believe that taking a pill "lets us off thehook". Vitamin supplements do not work well unless the diet is as pristine as you can afford. Most diets today have too many empty calories and, as I have said many times in these posts, sugar in all its forms is definitely injurious to health.See my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" that you can google. ...Read more

Is the level 9.7ng/ml of vitamin D for a girl that age 15 normal ? If not , what's the best way to be treated?

It is low.: The treatment is with oral vitamin D. Often a high dose (50,000 IU per week) is prescribed for 6-8 weeks to reconstitute the body stores, followed by 1,000-2,000 IU daily. If this fails, one has to consider malabsoprtion (intestinal problems causing lack of absorption of vitamin D). ...Read more
