How rare is androgenetic alopecia in teen girls? Could signif weight loss (30-35 lbs) trigger AA at a much earlier age than it would normally occur?
It might be: Recent studies have suggested an association between sleep duration and weight gain. Sleeping less than five hours — or more than nine hours — a night appears to increase the likelihood of weight gain. In one study, recurrent sleep deprivation in men increased their preferences for high-calorie foods and their overall calorie intake. In another study, women who slept less than six hours a night or more than nine hours were more likely to gain 11 pounds (5 kilograms) compared with women who slept seven hours a night. Other studies have found similar patterns in children and adolescents. One explanation might be that sleep duration affects hormones regulating hunger — ghrelin and leptin — and stimulates the appetite. Another contributing factor might be that lack of sleep leads to fatigue and results in less physical activity. So now you have another reason to get a good night's sleep. ...Read more
Twin girls born at 24 weeks weighing less than 500 grams each . How high is the possibility of survival?
You'd be amazed...: The majority of 24 week infants now survive, especially if they make it through the first 48 hours of life. That's not to say they may not have significant problems with breathing, feeding, development, vision. You also don't say 24 weeks and how many days . 24 weeks 0 days is worse than 24 weeks 5 days - at that stage of the game, every extra day makes a difference. Continue hope, faith and pray. ...Read more
Mom has ft dementia (mid-stage), is inactive, 40 lb weight gain in a year, sleeping 12+ hours a day. Are these signs that the disease is accelerating?
Yes: Any diet that makes you burn fat will draw more fluid out of your body. Fat burns into ketones which are filtered out by your kidneys. The ketones take water with them as they leave your body in the urine. If you are thirsty or your tongue is dry or white, then you need to drink more water. Your own liver and kidneys normally do a great job of detoxing your body. Good luck on your diet! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not necessarily: Activity is not necessarily a sign of healthy weight gain, though it is certainly more reassuring for appropriate development. Your doctor will measure the height of your fundus at each visit, which is an indication of the baby's weight gain. You should have regular activity daily during the third trimester and if you have concerns do not hesitate to contact your provider. ...Read more

Wife:5'2", baseline 102lbs, now 124lbs at 24 weeks- good trajectory? Which is riskier to kid- too much or too little weight gain?
Wt GAIN: Baseline weight for her height is at low end of normal bmi range. Her wt gain of 22lbs is slightly ahead of normal for 24 wks (ave wt gain for 24 wks is about 15 lbs). However, given her low starting wt, i wouldn't be concerned about the gain thus far and would expect her to only gain another 10-15 lbs for the rest of the pregnancy which would still put her in the normal range of 25-35 lbs total. ...Read more
