Scientists in HerbalLegacy.com state that potassium deficiencies cause the development of moles, the moles that appear in adulthood'not genetic'true?

Forgive my frankness: If that were true, people with renal wasting of potassium would be the folks who develop moles. You are living in the 21st century and need to develop basic scientific literacy and discernment. The claim (HHH page 120) isn't even made by 'scientists', but by one herbalist with a fertile imagination writing in 1953. You're doing yourself a disservce by wasting you time on this stuff. ...Read more

My 4 yo daughter has underarm body odor like an adult would have. She shows no other abnormal signs-no hair, breast development. Is this a problem?

My 4 yo daughter has underarm body odor like an adult would have. She shows no other abnormal signs-no hair, breast development. Is this a problem?

This does happen: with children sometimes without any underlying reason or problem. However, I would recommend discussing this with her pediatrician, and having her examined by them also. They may suggest some laboratory testing to rule out a metabolic or endocrine problem, but they may also determine that it is not a problem and allow you to use a basic deodorant only product. ...Read more

Can Swab test result prove whether a child has an infection, like influenza? Can it also done in adult and to find other medical issue with someone?

Craniosynostosis: You made your own diagnosis, but its a shame that it might have not been discovered in infancy... At this point you cannot do anything to change that.

How Far Over?: Brain damage from a fever generally will not occur unless the fever is over 107.6 °f (42 °c).

Doctor, TSH Test level is Adult - 0.35 - 5.5 microIU/mL but my result is TSH - 6.75... my age is 26 years , male.. is it curable & Dangerous? Pls

Doctor, TSH Test level is  Adult - 0.35 - 5.5 microIU/mL but my result is  TSH  -  6.75... my age is 26 years , male.. is it curable  & Dangerous? Pls

Elevated TSH: Your TSH result is well above the normal range, if you fit the population used to define the range. This most often means that your thyroid hormone is not meeting the needs of the body, so your pituitary is signaling for more production. Hormone supplements should be considered and should bring the level back to normal. Rare pituitary tumors may independently produce TSH.so keep that in mind. ...Read more
