I have cold for a log time and I feel fever with it as well what should I do?

Cold: Cold are caused by viruses and unlike bacterial infection antibiotics don't work for viral infections. You can take regular pain killers to help you feel better. If your nose is blocked you can use over the counter alien nose drops or striven nose drops (only for short duration- long term use causes side affects). Drink hot drinks like soups and rest. If any new symptoms arise then see doctor. ...Read more

Will the information still be useful if I often forget to log the kicks or contractions?

Will the information still be useful if I often forget to log the kicks or contractions?

Yes: Assume you're talking about the practice of monitoring "fetal movement" as a proxy for fetal well-being. The premise is that babies who move a lot are healthy babies, and babies who don't move may be "asking for help". Babies in utero sleep in 90-120 minute cycles. If lack of movement persists much longer than that, call your obstetrician or go to l&d. 99% of the time, he/she is fine. ...Read more

Wat would cause my bms to go from brown hard log like to very soft mushy green. Peanut butter like.

Wat would cause my bms to go from brown hard log like to very soft mushy green. Peanut butter like.

Bowel shape, smell,: Color are dominated by diet. The colon absorbs water, and the rectum stores stool. That left "mushy" may have oily/fatty residue not well digested. Make a diary of what you eat, and what you poop. Fruits and vegetables tend to help bm flow freely and less hard. Bananas, rice tend to constipate. ...Read more

Extra Zoloft (sertraline): You are going to be fine. One extra 25 mg of Zoloft (sertraline) is not going to have any significant affect on you. I doubt you will even notice it. At most you may have a little loose stool. It is going to be ok, just keep taking your regular dose from now on. Peace and good luck. ...Read more

I have been on nph and log insulin for 18 years, can I replace my insulin with doses of 500 or 1000 g of metformin only?

I have been on nph and log insulin for 18 years, can I replace my insulin with doses of 500 or 1000 g of metformin only?

Unlikely: While it is possible, it's very unlikely. Your doctor can check if your body is still making your own Insulin (type 2 diabetes) or not.
By the way, nph is an outdated insulin. Check with your doc about replacing it with gargine (lantus) which is a true once daily basal insulin. ...Read more
