1, 6, and 19: Msud is caused when a tightly clustered group of proteins [branched-chain ketoacid dehydrogenase] does not work properly.

Ive had alot of pain in my lower left side, and my urine smells really sweet and its cloudy is possible this is msud? I am 26 yo male
Probably not: This disease is because of a defect in metabolism of leucine, isoleucine and valine, all present in protein. I believe that mead johnosn may be making a diet for this disease but it is a long time since i had the care of a msud patient----- a very difficult disease to treat and only diet can prevent the mental retardation that is otherwise inevitable. ...Read more
What form of medication or supplement gets absorbed fastest? I was thinking maybe chewable tablets or liquid gel capsules.
Varies: It depends upon what medication you are talking about. In general, however, fastest absorption is the sublingual route, where the medication is placed under the tongue. Very few medications, however, are designed to be taken this way. Next fastest are usually the gel caps. Chewables actually have about the same absorption as solid pills. If wondering about a specific medication, ask pharmacist! ...Read more
Acne: During puberty, there is an increase in sebum production in the skin. Sebum and skin debris clog pores and the blockage results in inflammation. Gently cleaning the surface of the skin and applying acne medications such as benzoyl peroxide or prescription clindamycin help reduce the bacteria and clean up to the top layer of the skin allowing the pimples/comedones to clear over time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had Bacterial Vaginosis, but it went away a few weeks ago with medication. I now think I have it again, shall I go to the doctors? Or purchase BV gel?
Not very effective: Recurrent BV is very common. Unfortunately, vaginal metronidazole (BV Gel, Metrogel, etc) rarely works. If that's what you were treated with last time, it may be why the problem came back. You should contact your doctor, who probably will want to examine you to confirm the diagnosis. Ask about treatment with metronidazole by mouth. Also have STD testing if not yet done. BV can be a sign of STD. ...Read more

Needs drainage: Most primary care doctors don't drain styes (I do if they can be drained easily). Usually an eye doc can take care of them (but they make you wait 3 weeks total time in most cases). If the stye comes back or worsens it could be something else more dangerous, or just a stye again. Best of luck ...Read more
