Dr. Martin raff?why I can not take PPD test? Tb heal 10 yrs ago and qtf-gold positive last week

PPD: You have living tubercle bacilli in your body and they will aways be there. Not only is there then no value to the PPD (it will be positive due to similar factors that make the quantiferon positive), but you are at risk of having a very severe reaction to the PPD and losing tissue in the area in which the PPD is placed. Please do not do this. Unnecessary and dangerous. Best wishes. ...Read more

Dr martin r. If I get preganant now, will baby be infected tb? Tb heal 10 yr ago, qtf positive now. Medicine for decrease TSH will make TB reactive?

Get treatment: Hypothyroidism (low thyroid levels, which you have) is associated with miscarriage. That should be treated before you try again. Also, they will probably test you to be sure there is no active tb. If so, you need to be treated before getting pregnant again as the treatment can be harmful to an embryo/fetus. Ask y our doctor for more info. ...Read more

I fell against my side table the other day and bruised myself pretty badly. There is a "c" marking probably from the drawer handle. Hurts to breathe.?

Mgt/work up: Your symptoms are most likely related to the bruising of soft tissue and maybe of the rib. If there is any chance of the rib being broken, an x-ray should be obtained.
If you are short of breath or air hungry, please go to the ED. Otherwise, a heating pad and advil (ibuprofen) will help to alleviate the pain.

I take Chewable Vitamin C with Rose Hips 500mg tablets. I'm assuming its 500mg a tablet? My main question is... Is it bad 2 take more than 2 at a time?

I take Chewable Vitamin C with Rose Hips 500mg tablets. I'm assuming its 500mg a tablet? My main question is... Is it bad 2 take more than 2 at a time?

Vitamin C: Taking 1000mg will not be problematic relative to 500 mg but it would probably be more effective to take one 500mg tablet in the morning and the other at night. Your body's capacity for absorbing vitamin c is limited and once exceeded the balance is excreted and therefore wasted. Consider dosing twice a day rather all at once. ...Read more
