My bilirubin level is varying between 1.2 and 1.5.i got a job in dubai. So if I undergo medical test can I pass it? Is there any medication for that?

Depends...: It doesn't seem to be a severe problem but it all depends on other values in the blood and if you are having abdominal pain, changes in skin color, etc. It is difficult to tell without that information. As far as a job is concerned I am not sure what are the requirements in your country but here in the US this would be no issue to start job. Unless you are feel sick this should not stop you from work ...Read more

My mother 48yo suffers from knee joint pain, even difficult for her to stand, most of medical tests were ok, no medications proved useful: (please suggest?

Knee Pain: If she suffers knee pain and all the tests including xrays and MRI of knees are normal then the assumption is that her pain located in her knees is referred from another source such as her back, neck or hips. Meds may not be helpful if directed at the symptoms and not a specific diagnosis. She is very young to not be able to stand due to her pain. Would not stop looking for the problem at this. ...Read more

How can I make sure that my son is at the begining of drug addiction without he get's aware, any medical tests? Or somehow at home?

How can I make sure that my son is at the begining of drug addiction without he get's aware, any medical tests? Or somehow at home?

Be careful: I'm really urging you NOT to try to find out w/out his knowing. It can appear to put you in the wrong and perhaps still not give you a solid course of action anyway. If you can't mention your concern in the safety of another's presence (or alone) then that in itself is a problem. 'Beginning' is better than 'late', but it doesn't matter. You can't do this alone. Time for real professional help. ...Read more

Is it medically possible to determine an exact year a person loss their teeth. And is their a test that can determine if the loss was drug related.

Is it medically possible to determine an exact year a person loss their teeth. And is their a test that can determine if the loss was drug related.

Exact year, No.: By looking on a radiographic image (x-ray) to see how the bone at the extraction site has healed a dentist could probably tell you of the extraction was within the last few months, the last 2-3 years, or a longer time ago. There is no test that will tell you exact year or if the cause was drug related. For these answers we need to ask the patient. ...Read more

Shy bladder......: I would suggest you talk to your doctor about evaluating the issue, and if no significant pathology is found (like an enlarged prostate), your doctor can provide you with a generic to whom it may concern letter that you have difficulties voiding on command and/or in front of others. Ask them for a saliva test, or tell them you are willing to give blood for a test. ...Read more

Are the side effects of the osteoporosis medication and lessened day-to-day quality of life sometimes worse than the medical condition itself?

Choices: There are many medications and classes for osteoporosis. If you don't like one of them, talk to your doctor about the other choices. There should be one that won't give you bad side effects. If you have osteoporosis, you need to be treated. A hip fracture can permanently affect your quality of life and could even kill you. Have a conversation with your doc. ...Read more

Extensive tests weren't done but in general I'm a healthy person & don't take any medications. But my appetite is INSATIABLE. CANT STOP EATING for weeks already! I'm not even stressed out or depressed. I'm pretty happy with my life. I keep gaining weight!

Appetitie: Glad to hear that you are otherwise healthy. Even though you've been to doctors you need to continue to be monitored by one. Was your thyroid checked? Has your lifestyle changed? How is your self-control in other areas of life? Ask doc about a low carb food plan w/higher fat content. GOOD (coconut oil & olive oil) fat helps curb appetite. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Are there any medical conditions that make it dangerous to have a septoplasty? I'm on medication for several issues. None are life-threatening, but I'm worried about having surgery. I haven't talked to any surgeons yes, but my primary care doctor seems to

If: If there are any concerns about your medical stability for septoplasty surgery, your primary doctor and plastic surgeon will need to communicate in order to determine whether the procedure is safe for you. Your primary doctor may recommend certain tests be done to help assure your safety with anesthesia and surgery. If you have a history of prolonged bleeding, uncontrolled high blood pressure, heart attacks or stroke, or other significant medical conditions, you will need specific clearance to proceed with any operation.
All the best,

Are there any tests to make sure you are absorbing, distributing, metabolising, and excreting medications properly?

Are there any tests to make sure you are absorbing, distributing, metabolising, and excreting medications properly?

Medication Testing: The gold standard is to draw a series of blood tests after taking a dose and measuring the amount of the drug in each successive sample. If you were to plot the results on a graph, the goal would be for the graph to look like a normal bell shaped curve. However, one can only do this with drugs for which there is a blood test for. ...Read more

Sir my ncv test shows early signs of cts. What medication do you suggest.

NSAID: First medication to try would be anti-inflammatories (NSAID) such as Motrin or naprosyn, etc. There are prescritpion and over-the-counter strengths. The goal would be to consistently use to decrease any inflammation in the area of the carpal tunnels. You may need additional testing including possible xrays of the area also. Tylenol (acetaminophen) may help for comfort, but it is not an anti-inflammatory. ...Read more

Besides that, taking a medication "not prescribed" to you is rarely a good idea. ...Read more

What good can hydroxycut gummies do for me at 58 with the medical problems and medications I am on?

Avoid diet pills.: Hydroxycut has been linked with liver damage and muscle injury that can result in kidney damage. We have no way of knowing your medical problems or your medications, so it's best to check with a doctor who does. Generally, though, successful weight loss realistically will not be achieved by a simple pill (or gummy). It involves lifestyle changes in self control, diet, and activity. Best of luck! ...Read more
