Focus on present: I don't think it does you any good to ruminate or speculate on some test result from 19yrs ago.

Use http://tools.cardiosource.org/ASCVD-Risk-Estimator/ to assess your risk for heart disease & stroke then manage risk accordingly. ...Read more

Why has stanton e samenow phd psychologist received so much criticism?

Expert witnesses: I had not heard of DR. Samenow until I read your question last night & decided to read up on him. I still don't know that I have a good handle on the answer.

Is there any difference btw drs that graduate from foreign medical schools vs drs that graduate from american medical schools?

What do you think ??: That issue to the best my knowledge ( I am fmg ) never comes among the doctors , discussions were never who is superior, as all of them take same examination, pass same speciality boards , most of fmgs practice in under served areas , others unwilling to go. If some says is superior is only due one's bios & prejudice which is not rampant pt will decide whom to choose or don't care. ...Read more

Normal is between 10 and 20. Sometimes it can be low if mom is dehydrated or on her feet too much. Often we recommend drinking more water and resting more, then repeat the ultrasound. Check with your doctor and see what is recommended. ...Read more
