What kind?: How many are you taking, and what kind? What are you taking them for. Ask again and explain. But you know, really! Take them as they are prescribed on the bottle! To do anything else is foolish and can hurt you. How were you told to take them.? ...Read more

For high LDL (168), thyroid replacement therapy(60 mcg synthyroid), doctors say reduce dairy products . So how should we get calcium? Is slim milk ok?

High LDL cholesterol: 168 is pretty high for LDL ("bad") cholesterol, but it is not the end of the story. Eat 5 servings of fruits & vegetables a day. Eat grains and oatmeal. Metamucil for your bowels also lowers cholesterol by 10%. Exercise& stress reduction helps. And medications like statins, zetia, and Niacin help. I doubt the efficacy of synthroid, (thyroxine) which has potential significant adverse effects. Skim milk ok. ...Read more

A really white spot color of milk small less than a inch is been in back of my neck 5 to. 6 years never grow or spread what could it be?

Vitiligo: Vitiligo is a skin condition in which there is a loss of brown color (pigment) from areas of skin, resulting in irregular white patches that feel like normal skin.

I have milk layer in mouth, body pain  , stiff neck  , some times tingling feeling in body, no fever or cough for almost 1 month . Any suggestions ?

Does not sound good: The "milk layer" in your mouth suggests thrush (fungus) and this is not a good sign in adult unless specific cause is known such as recent antibiotic and/or steroid/inhaler use etc.. Immunosuppressive state such as HIV is a cause of concern. Since you have symptoms for about 1 month now, it is time to consult doc to find out what is causing your trouble. Good luck. ...Read more
