About cakes and fat. I heard that pound cake is called pound cake because it takes a pound of butter to make one cake (of what size?). Is it true?

My 4 month old previously would have 5+ bms a day and this week this has been dramatically decreased to one or less a day. When should I call the dr?
It can be a variant:
It is hard without a picture or x-ray.
There is a variant of the thumb called triphalangeal thumb where the thumb has 3 phalanges (like a finger) instead of the two phalanges that a "norma;" thumb has.
There are conditions where the thumb is hypoplastic. This means it is underdeveloped compared to a "normal" thumb and may look thinner, have a different ligament structure and have thinner muscles at its base
there are conditions known as arthrogryposis where joints do not develop normally and stiff fingers can result. While many arthrogrypotic limbs are not limited to the fingers alsone there are some mild variants known as distal arthrogryposis where only the finger joints are affected
hand differences or hand congenital (born with) anomalies are common.
Some hand differences are beyond classification (in other words we don't have a name for them they just are what they are)
the good thing is that for most with a congenital thumb difference or even a stiff thumb joint that occurs due to an injury, it is not a problem doing everything and it is not a limiting factor in any type of job, hobby or activity
you might want to search "congenital hand differences" on the web to read more. ...Read more
Polytrim (polymyxin b and trimethoprim): Is an antibiotic for superficial eye infections. Being composed of Polymyxin B sulfate & trimethoprim sulfate, it should be used with caution in those with sulfa allergies. If using this medication, do not take vitamin b complex or folate (folic acid) supplements, as they will counter the activity of the trimethoprim. If eye condition worsens, see doc. ...Read more
Being wise?: No disrespect is intended. Too often, we are our own worst enemies. Realizing this is often painful but brings self-improvement. "autophobia" is a "pop" name for the fear of being alone, though we all fear being abandoned. It's the new year and a time for us to review how to be our best friends instead, and to resolve to do the things that help us be better to ourselves and those around us. ...Read more
Testicular asymmetry: There can be some variation in size between the testicles. If you have significant variation, or if the change is recently noticed, it is worth getting checked by your physician. Atrophy of one testicle can cause one to decrease in size, or the development of a testicular infection or tumor can make a testicle larger. Other problems such as hernia, hydrocele, varicocele or cyst may exist as well. ...Read more
? Adie's syndrome: Adie described asymmetry in the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. Some asymmetry is normal but if it becomes visibly present as in your case it is abnormal. Strangely I have learned from years of practice that sugar is often the key. It causes relative deficiency of vitamin b1 just like the old fashioned choke caused trouble in a car. ...Read more

Called insurance and told "insomnia' was only diagnosis listed. Does that mean that is the only one listed in medical record too?
No: In most cases, insurance claim information does not match up with the huge amount of information on a person's medical chart. On the chart, "diagnoses" can include proven diagnoses, probable diagnoses, possible diagnoses, past diagnoses (disorders that have resolved), and many other things. The insurance claim usually needs only 1 or 2 "diagnoses" to get a claim paid. The chart is more accurate. ...Read more

True: Technically there is no such discipline as neuro-urology. All board-certified urologists should be competent to treat conditions such as neurogenic bladder. Find a urologist who has the capability to perform the full spectrum of urodynamics testing. This should not be difficult as most of us do. ...Read more
Ii have been sexually active since the age of 16. Ii am now 21. Should II be getting smear tests? When II called to book one they said not till im 25.
Now is good: Most offices start checking with onset of sexual activity so you can be checked for STDs which can affect fertility. Definitely get screened at 21 if you're sexually active. Once you've been screened with normal smears & (-)hpv tests; then your doc can help you decide how often to be checked. I do have pts who need treatment for high-grade pap smears in their teens. Call again or switch offices. ...Read more

Don't have one what?: If your doctor called to tell you that your urine culture did not grow out any bacteria, s/he should have informed you of next step eg whether to finish or stop antibiotic. Best to check w/your doc. The risk w/stopping now is antibiotic resistance. But of course, you balance that against risk for c diff colitis or other antibiotic induced diarrhea or just a simple yeast infection. So ask ur doc. ...Read more

I have fat pockets one on each side on my inner thighs what is it called? How do you get them? How do you get rid of them?
It: It can be considered localized adiposity. Unfortunately excessive fat collection is determined genetically as you gain extra weight. Some gain it in their hips, others their buttocks and yet others, their thigh or abdomen. At this point, you are unfortunately unable to spot lose weight in one specific area. These areas of localized adiposity can potentially be treated with traditional or ultrasonic liposuction as long as the skin laxity is not too decreased in that area. If the skin is too loose or relaxed, you may then require a thigh lift type of procedure to get rid of extra skin. ...Read more
