Agree with Dr Garber: If you are on, or just finished your period, urine will show blood. Blood means red cells, without white cells UTI (infection) is much less likely. Need to recheck urine to make sure blood is not still there. If still, with protein, need a nephrologist, if blood without protein in urine, need a urologist. ...Read more

Almost 5'5", 105 pounds. How long would it take me to get to 100 pounds if I eat around 500 calories per day and run 2 miles each day?

Healthy body image: Instead of having the goal of being 100 pounds, set a goal of eating a healthy diet and exercising. It's very healthy to join a sports team at school. Eat a healthy diet and gradually increase your level of physical activity. Consider joining your track team. Running two miles a day is not excessive.

I have apetite for 3weeks now, and wen I force myself to eat I get a running tummy then I feel weak after that?

Get checked: Three weeks is a long time to have these symptoms and I feel they warrant a visit to the physician for evaluation. Possibilities include gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome, viral infection, food poisoning or intolerance. I assume recent foreign travel and pregnancy are not issues. Until examined, eat a bland, nonfatty diet containing no harsh roughage. Take kaopectate to control diarrhea. See MD ...Read more

I run 15-20 miles weekly and have not had my period in 4 months. I eat more than enough calories, is the only way to get it back to stop running?

I run 15-20 miles weekly and have not had my period in 4 months. I eat more than enough calories, is the only way to get it back to stop running?

May need lab tests: Given your high level of exercise, you may be underestimating the calories you need daily. Hormonal conditions such as low thyroid or elevated levels of the hormone prolactin can cause periods to stop. Pregnancy can cause periods to stop. A nutritionist can tell you how many calories you need daily, and a doctor can order lab tests to check your hormones. ...Read more

I love Tex mex food, but after I eat it I get stomach pains and have gross poop. It might be because I run around after I eat it. Why? How can I stop it

Intolerance: You should try to pinpoint what specific foods or sauces cause your symptoms. Are you also intolerant of other nontexmex foods? Perhaps gluten is the problem. Try introducing one type of food at a time to see if you can identify the culprit food. If you can't, you could get a prescription for a medication like dicyclomine to take before you eat texmex food to avoid cramps and diarrhea. ...Read more
