Worth trying: Chinese formulas like this have been used by millions of people for thousands of years and are often safer and more effective than western meds. It is worth a try. Also try a low FODMAPs diet- see http://tinyurl.com/oxjvpnc ...Read more

Fibroid uterus: You're describing a medium size fibroid which may or may not need anything done. It depends entirely on whether it's causing any symptoms or not. About 50% of women have fibroids and most don't know it. Usually they cause no trouble at all. But sometimes they can cause abnormal bleeding, various pain, trouble getting pregnant, etc. ...Read more

Im confused l askd a question about my dr sayn my gallbladder workn at 29% 1 dr says remove it another sayn think twice. L need help lm.Lost?

Only 70% cured: The problem relying on gallbladder contraction (ejection fraction) as an indication for gallbladder removal is that there is no consensus or correlation between the ef% and response to cholecystectomy. Cholecystectomy is associated with cure in about 70%, but there is a similar rate of improvement is also seen in patients that are treated medically. 30% have persistent symptoms after surgery. ...Read more

Sir my homeopathy dr says duchenne muscular dystrophy is curable with homeopathy should l trust him?

Sir my  homeopathy dr says duchenne muscular dystrophy is curable with homeopathy should  l trust him?

Quackery & delusions: If that "doctor" really could do that, he'd win the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Homeopathy is not medicine. Practitioners have no real medical knowledge. Would you want your MD to practice 214-year-old medicine on you? Because that’s when homeopathy was invented. Join the 21st century.

Gray hair premature: Unfortuanately people can get gray hair prematurely and it is sometimes genetic, sometimes stress related, and occasionally hormonal. See your doctor to review your situation in more detail and get help with anything that is fixable and consider dying your hair if it is bothering you. I hope you are able to get to the bottom of the problem and that it turns out well. ...Read more

New options: Staying on one opioid for too long can cause more tolerance and thus you may need to switch medications every once in a while anyway. Also, there are many non opioid options that may reduce your pain... Good luck. ...Read more

Is cortical dysrythemia (as eeg) curable with homeopathy (bufo rana30, oenanthe crocata-3x)? Please advise!

Is cortical dysrythemia (as eeg) curable with homeopathy (bufo rana30, oenanthe crocata-3x)? Please advise!

Hard to know: Without knowing your case, I cannot say how well those remedies (Bufo rana & Oenanthe crocata) apply to you. Hopefully you're working with a professional homeopath who has taken your case well and has prescribed accordingly. In general, homeopathic treatment has been known to help seizures -- but remedies are prescribed for the individual experiencing symptoms, not pathologic diagnosis alone. ...Read more

Took Accutane 20mg 2yr ago.My doctor prescribed me laser fr scar.But 1yr+ didn't visit dermatology.Now stil hv breakout and smtym cyst.Laser help? Or?

Accutane doesn't: always clear your acne. If hormones are a big cause of your acne then birth control pills or spironolactone works better. I would not do laser until your acne is under good control. see dermatologist ...Read more

Dears ,i had an echo forheart with IVSD 14mm / LVPWD 15mm .doctor say i have concentricLVH & grade 1 diastolic dysfction. i am 33 yrs,should i worry?

Dears ,i had an echo forheart with IVSD 14mm / LVPWD 15mm .doctor say i have concentricLVH & grade 1 diastolic dysfction. i am 33 yrs,should i worry?

Some concern: The most common cause for a concentric pattern of LVH is hypertension, so it is important for you to have an excellent level of blood pressure control. Diastolic dysfunction of that degree means that it takes your heart a few more thousandths of a second to relax between beats. It is quite common in the setting of LVH. Again, blood pressure control is important. For a higher degree or symptomatic diastolic dysfunction, beta-blocker medication is often recommended to slow the heart between beats. ...Read more

Tt(2mo. Ago, pap carc.), 3mm tumor, no rai, TSH 33, tgab 70(140% jump post-op),  tg <.02. Endo waiting 2mo. To eval. Is onocologist warranted?

Wait.: Doesn't sound like you need oncologist as your tumor has been removed - it was really very tiny. 3 mm? A micro carcinoma. How did one find this? I wonder if this was just an incidental finding. Tumors of this size are not uncommon and their clinical significance is not well understood. ...Read more

Hi I've gt bipolar 2+gt very hyper I don't believe my 750mg depakote helps I've gt fibromyalgia+I gt sore wen I'm hyper+never know how long it lasts?

See MD: See your prescribing doctor to discuss concern that Depakote isn't helping your hyper or hypomanic states. Suggest seeing a mental health therapist to explore other ways to address your mood swings. Check with your pcp or doctor treating your fibromyalgia to discuss status and any recommendations for pain relief, eg., physical therapy. Good luck! ...Read more
