My 10 months child has diahrea, she feeding formula Lactogen 2, I don't know whether I hav to change the formula or what I must do, please help?

Recent change?: If you have RECENTLY changed to Lactogen and the diarrhea started, then the diarrhea may be caused by the new formula. However, if you have ALWAYS fed the Lactogen, and the diarrhea has only recently started, look for another cause. Offering an electrolyte solution such as Pedialyte after each loose stool can help prevent dehydration. Bloody diarrhea is always cause for concern, needing doctor. ...Read more

Can you have a normal echo 1 month and two months later have an abnormal one with the only difference bieng a mild rv enlargement? Why would this be?

Can you have a normal echo 1 month and two months later have an abnormal one with the only difference bieng a mild rv enlargement? Why would this be?

2nd answer: It is possible for echos to change. For instance, one may develop a right ventricular cardiomyopathy during the interval. All diseases have a date of onset. More likely however, the first echo missed it. RV size is hard to judge on a routine echo unless it's marked or the reader is alerted to look for it by other clinical data. The 1st echo should be re-evaluated with this new data. ...Read more

Retino AC gel vs ziana? What is the difference between the two? Is one generic and original is there any difference in quality or effectiveness?

Retino AC gel vs ziana? What is the difference between the two? Is one generic and original is there any difference in quality or effectiveness?

Acne Vulgaris: The difference is that ziana contains tretinoin and clindamycin. Retin-a gel is brand name for tretinoin only and has no antibiotic Clindamycin in it. Like to think that combination is more effective but actually it depends on whether you have more inflammation than nodularity. You use Renova cream as well. It is also tretinoin. Light therapy helps in acne. Wish you good health. ...Read more

Hello I was given two different due dates from two different obgyn. One told me lmp was on nov 15 another told me nov 21. Would this make a difference?

Hello I was given two different due dates from two different obgyn. One told me lmp was on nov 15 another told me nov 21. Would this make a difference?

Not really: All pregnancy dates are estimates, except that the conception date is known in an IVF baby (conceived in the lab). Pregnancy dating estimates have a range of plus or minus one week... which means November 15 and November 21 are "the same date" as those days are less than a week apart. ...Read more

Two eye drs. Looking at visual field test result. One dr says it is normal & other says there's peripheral vision loss. Why the difference of opinion?

Two eye drs. Looking at visual field test result. One dr says it is normal & other says there's peripheral vision loss. Why the difference of opinion?

Interpretation: Interpretation of visual field change is somewhat subjective. As many as 5 cosequetive visual fields are necessary to show change over time. Peripheral changes can have a lot of "noise" in deciding whether or not it is real defect or not. Repetition of field testing and confirmation of defect over time is more accurate. Even then, there are many factors that can interfere in vf assessment. ...Read more
