While the mainstay of weight control is 20 minutes or more of exercise a day and a healthy diet (5 servings of fruits or vegetables a day), in your condition a medication called metformin will help to lower your sugar and Insulin and thus reduce some of the tendency to weight gain.

Can you be allergic to cranberry? If you are, does that mean that you are allergic to all fruits?

Yes: Yes, you can be allergic to cranberries but that doesn't mean you're allergic to all fruits. Allergies are to specific proteins. Cranberries and bananas have different proteins for example and maybe you're allergic to a protein specific to cranberries but not one shared by cranberries and bananas.

Can diet cranberry juice from oceanspray be good as juice to heal h.Pylori and mild gastritis. Also what fruits and food to help heal the infection?

Probably not: The mild gastritis is likely caused by the h. Pylori infection. H pylori is a bacteria that attacks stomach lining. Effective treatment is a 10-14 days of antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor (like omeprazole) to decrease acid. Lack of treatment may lead to chronic stomach pain and/or stomach ulcers. There is no good evidence that cranberry juice or specific foods are good treatments.

My diet is mostly whole grains and calcium. I eat fruit and vegetables occasionally. Is this okay?

Diet: You need protein and fats in your diet. Tofu and yogurt are excellent sources of protein if you are vegetarian or vegan. Avocados, ie guacamole is a great source of fats. It also would be a good idea to do a multi-vitamin. Extra Vitamin D would also help. Good luck

My baby is 2 months old and fed with formula. When should I start or add complementary foods? As for example fruit, vegetables?

My baby is 2 months old and fed with formula. When should I start or add complementary foods? As for example fruit, vegetables?

Unnecessary: 50 years ago infants were fed solids early & frequently to make up for deficiencies in the evaporated milk formulas moms made at home. Today early feeds are an antiquated practice & do not add to the child's nutrition. Today solids are viewed as a tutorial to transition baby to the table. Starting at 6m as the tongue thrust fades & baby begins to sit is early enough.
