Insulin: Yes. Should be used with meals.Get a more detailed answer ›
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.
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.

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By the way, nph is an outdated insulin.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

About 6 months ago I was hit with a heavy log under my left arm that sent me flying through the air. I cant lift my arm above my waist without lot of?
Like you may have had some damage to your Rotator Cuff in particular the supraspinatus tendon! The Rotator cuff is a group of tendons around the top of your arm bone (humerus) that are used to MOVE THE SHOULDER! An in person exam can determine if this is damaged! An ORTHOPEDIST would be most appropriate!
Hope this is helpful
