Where I reside overseas the only 2 Ubiquinol products are Eckhart Corp's Vitamode CoQ10, & Tishcon Corp's Stay-well Active Q. I am 67- which is best?

Where I reside overseas the only 2 Ubiquinol products are Eckhart Corp's Vitamode CoQ10, & Tishcon Corp's Stay-well Active Q. I am 67- which is best?

CoQ10 choices: As supplements and vitamins are not uniformly regulated it's difficult to say if one is better than another, as the quality may vary even within the same brand from one "batch" to the next. Pick a brand that you trust or someone can recommend, but still no guarantees. ...Read more

Yes, very!: If your son has "purchased" these anabolic steroids, in all likelihood, he is not under the management of his physician. Excess T from unsupervised use is very dangerous and can increase risk for heart attack, stroke, mood changes, etc. It can also render men infertile as well as shut down T production. Best to see family doc for evaluation. If he truly has low T, need to find cause first. ...Read more

Stage4Cancer(started in breast mid-late 50s female)do u think "Biotech nutritions-Pure Graviola 1300mg"gelatin free dietary supplement would help her?

Stage4Cancer(started in breast mid-late 50s female)do u think "Biotech nutritions-Pure Graviola 1300mg"gelatin free dietary supplement would help her?

Probably not: Stage 4 breast cancer requires a lot more than just a dietary supplement. Its very important that she follow her oncologists recommendations. If she wants to to try a nutritional adjunct, there are total immersion programs for cancer. Some examples are Dr Lorraine Day's 10 Step Program for Cancer Treatment and Eden Valley Institute of Wellness. These are both great adjunctw. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is pentaxim vaccine (sanofi made in france) really banned?

Below: Yes: There have been numerous studies over the years, that the dosage of vaccine in Pentaxim against Pertussis is low, that it is not able to protect humans from infection in the long run. A recent study by WHO also states that pertussis (respiratory disease, which spreads through contact) is on the rise again & is prevalent among 5+ years old children in the United States & Europe, where this vaccine has been adopted as part of the national immunization schedule. This vaccine has already been banned in developed countries, on WHO’s recommendation. ...Read more

I was wondering is decacor creatine better than cell tech hardcore gainer creatine ?

Creatine: creatine is creatine. There are many adds out there about various forms of creatine. I am not aware of one being better than the other. Also there is much hype about the benefits of creatine. Indeed it has been shown in some studies to increase muscle mass but in others it has no effect. Demand to see these scientific articles that these adds tout before paying so much money. ...Read more

Im doing a tough mudder race on october, (10-12miles with 25 military obstacles designed by british military forces) should I take any multivitamin?

Probably: Vitamins are important for you to get through your diet. If you feel you do not get the necessary daily requirements through a balanced high content of plant based diet, its best to take a multivitamin each day regardless of tough mudder race or not. In general, use a high quality multi vitamin tablet such as new chapter brand as insurance to ensure you get your daily vitamins and minerals. ...Read more

I made an echocardiographic , the conclusion is..Sclerotic aortic valve , ef  ls32%, mild mitral regurgitation&dilated l.A   .Am i in ddinger.Lam 47 y?

This is concerning: Of the findings you reported, I am most concerned at this time about your ef of 32%. This needs to be further evaluated as to the cause. Low ejection fractions tend to cause symptoms of heart failure as well as markedly increase your risk of sudden death. Aortic sclerosis, mild mitral regurgitation and dilated left atrium are findings that need to be monitored; they may progress in the future. ...Read more

You should be seen: Something was torn if there was any pain, even if you believe your hymen is intact. You could try sitting in warm baths several times a day to see if it gets more comfortable, but if you are unable to sit you should be checked. Hope you are not on your honeymoon! ...Read more

What about Meiji collagen that was advertised on Oprah's T.V show ?

Anything advertised: by a celebrity is best avoided in my opinion. Celebrities, depite their popularity are still only lay people. And those who are physicians, well, lets say most don't actually practice medicine and have financial interests clouding their judgement. My suggestion: Ask a question about the problem you have that you would want to solve with this product. Get some real medical input. Best to you! ...Read more

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?

Can't tell, but...: A starting point is 130 lbs. A lot depends on a person's body build. Some are naturally very thin, others thick or big-boned, but most people are somewhere in between. "Australian" is a location, so that doesn't help either, as many different types of bodies are in Australia. BMI is helpful if a person is of average musculature. If very muscular, a perfectly fine person will have a high BMI. ...Read more

Gummy smiles and gum contouring? I have a gummy smile that i hate and would like fixed. I've been doing research and have come across something called gum contouring as a fix, but most of the sites seem to be british or australian. Is gum contouring somet

Yes, : Yes, it is done quite often. Gum contouring is a minor surgical procedure to remove some of the excess tissue around the necks of the teeth. Your best bet is to make an appointment with a local periodontist in your area. He/she will examine you and recommend treatment specific to your situation. Hope this info helps. ...Read more

How effective is the flu shot in the US? 10% this year? Is that an exaggeration because Australians don't normally get the flu shot. I am Australian. We only vax 10% of our kids. Is it possible the shot will be more effective in US since more get it.

Varies yearly: At any point at least 6 strains of flu circle the globe & air travel mixes it easily. Each season they pick the top 3-4 strains in the world and put it into production. More strains & it would weaken the strength for individual strains.US protection rates range from 20-60%/yr based on chance. I've had normal unvaccinated kids spend a month in the ICU near dying from the flu. I respect it. ...Read more

If taking pristiq (desvenlafaxine) for 1y, at lowest dosage, how to taper off? Alternate days for x wks? I am a teacher & want 2 use australian 6 wk christmas break.

If taking pristiq (desvenlafaxine) for 1y, at lowest dosage, how to taper off? Alternate days for x wks? I am a teacher  & want 2 use australian 6 wk christmas  break.

Tapering Pristiq (desvenlafaxine): First you should make sure to discuss stopping your medication with your physician, as a return of symptoms is quite possible. You should only follow the tapering schedule recommended by that physician. I would tell my patient that many can stop 50 mg of Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) without difficulty. If concerned my patient would use a pill cutter to halve the tablet for 1 week, then take 1/4 for one week and stop. ...Read more

I have Low caeruloplamin 0.19g/L and low serum copper 12.5 umol/L - units (Australian). Do I have Wilson Disease? or Copper deficiency? Thanks.

I have Low caeruloplamin 0.19g/L and low serum copper 12.5 umol/L - units (Australian). Do I have Wilson Disease? or Copper deficiency? Thanks.

Finish workup: If there is any concern at all that you have Wilson's, get a proper screen -- urinary copper and perhaps a genetic screen if you've got suggestive symptoms. Missing Wilson's leads to one of the most grisly deaths possible. Managing it is easy. Your ceruloplasmin is trivially low and reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies are outside on either end. ...Read more

In my medical report, done after 1 yr of exposure:

hiv i  : negative
hiv II : negative
screening tes?

Yes, negative: I assume this question is about serial tests for infections after an exposure. After a year, almost everyone who has acquired HIV will have developed an antibody response, so we take a negative HIV antibody test as evidence that someone did not acquire hiv. No evidence of chronic hepatitis b either if the surface antigen is not detected. There is a vaccine for hepatitis b. ...Read more
