Is Diatabs Safe For Lactating Mothers
Relatively: This anticholinergic is considered relatively safe during lactation when used at regular doses. It was once used in babies with colic but stopped due to a variety of side effects. These have not been seen as an issue if mom uses it during breast feeding. See. Hale t, "medications and mothers milk" 15ed, 2012. ...Read more

Hi. I know that raw cabbage is not recommended for lactating mothers. Will fried cabbage (onion, broccoli) affect my baby?
It can: Cabbage is one of the bigger no-no's, raw or cooked, as well as cruciferous veggies (broccoli, brussel sprouts, asparagus), onions, garlic, caffeine, spicy foods, and large amounts of dairy or tomatoes. Not everything affects everybody though, and some are affected by weird things, like almonds or even the gas drops themselves. ...Read more

What are the effects of high blood sugar (200+) in a lactating mother, on her infant child? Does high blood sugar = sweeter milk?
Haven't heard data: Haven't heard any data on that. Since milk production is a living process, it is reasonable to suspect that the lactose (a combination of glucose & galactose sugars) might increase if mom's blood glucose rises above a certain excessive level, and to suspect that glucose might "leak" into breastmilk if mom's glucose level is over some threshold level. Don't know if any researcher has milk this way. ...Read more

Becoming Pregnant: Medicine does not answer this question in the way you ask. Until a female is no longer fertile (has gone into menopause) she is able to become pregnant.

From what I can: Discover the answer is "no." Information available online suggests Black MamBa contains multiple stimulants including caffeine, synephrine and, of most concern, ephedra. Not only do these stimulants cause unpleasant side effects--feeling hyper and jittery--but ephedra has been banned for use in diet products by the FDA. Plus its effectiveness is unproved. Save your money; stay well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
