Doctor insights on:
I had trichimonasis in 2010. My husband cheated. I had it again jan 2012. Now in jan 2013. It makes no sense. If he was cheating it wouldn't be 1 a yr?
Why not?: You do not get trichomonas non-sexually 99.99% of the time. Your husband, if he was not treated when you were, could continue to reinfect you since many men have no symptoms. This, however, seems unlikely. You may need some marital counselling, and more importantly you must go and get tested for other stds, partic HIV and syphilis. Good luck. ...Read more
If I want to lose weight do you recommend cheat days? (A day of the week/month where you eat whatever junk or fast food you want)

Had my insulin levels checked and it is 35 which I was told is high? Could this have cauaed my gastroparesis? Have an appt w/ GI in jan.
No: An Insulin level doesn't mean much by itself, particularly without knowing a concomitant blood sugar or if you were fasting. If you have gastroparesis as a complication of type 2 diabetes, then the Insulin level suggests you still make insulin, though not enough to control blood sugar. High Insulin levels don't cause gastroparesis. ...Read more

Ex cheated on me in june. Got tested for stds in July. Found out the girl has hepatitis and herpes. How long does it take to show up? I'm freaking out
No need to freak-out: STDs, including herpes and hepatitis B, are transmitted ineffiiciently; that is, most sex with infected people doesn't transmit. Your ex partner should be professionally examined and tested for these and other STDs. If he isn't infected, you couldn't have caught anything. New herpes or hep B often asymptomatic. If symptoms, usual onset 3-10 days for herpes, 4-12 wk for hep B. No risk for hep C. ...Read more

Politically charged: China has a reputation for executing prisoners on schedule to harvest their organs. I don't think this qualifies as "donation". There probably is a smaller, more traditional donation market there. Japan, which does transplants on their people, have a tradition of not donating organs, so they are a ready market for organs of chinese origin. ...Read more
