Given VD n I want to take prenatal vit, inly available is vitel. In the leaflet it says dont take it with VD n the tab itself contains Vt? Shd I take

Abbreviation issues: I interpret your question to say: "If I have a venereal disease, can I take prenatal vitamins?" The answer to that is: Yes, there is no problem with taking vitamins of any sort if you have VD (which hopefully is being treated.) If I did not understand your question properly, please resubmit and I'll try again. ...Read more

Dr i did 25 hydroxy vitamin d(serum/clia) test.I got 4.6ng/ml. What it mean?

Vitamin D deficiency: Normal vitamin d levels between 30-100 ng/ml. Your level is low and there are a number of health risks from low vitamin d, including bone loss and fractures. Treatment is easy and you can correct the deficiency by taking about 2000 units of vitamin d daily. Please discuss the matter with your doctor to ensure that you do not have malabsorption that may cause other nutritional deficiencies. ...Read more

Does Ginkgo Biloba negatively affect BP? Hematologist tells me its dreadful FP says it's fine.

Does Ginkgo Biloba negatively affect BP? Hematologist tells me its dreadful FP says it's fine.

May lower BP: Not sure what you mean by "negatively affect BP." Gingko has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Research shows it may help treat Dementia, Intermittent Claudication, PMS, Anxiety, Raynaud's, Macular Degeneration etc. It may lower blood pressure in some so if taking with BP meds may cause BP to drop too low, though unlikely. It may interact with nifedipine. See http://tinyurl.com/h9gpz9l ...Read more

I have Pseudotumor Cerebri. I've read Pomegranate, milk thistle, turmeric, capsaicin all hold Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors naturally. Is this true?

I have Pseudotumor Cerebri. I've read Pomegranate, milk thistle, turmeric, capsaicin all hold Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors naturally. Is this true?

Use with care: I can confirm that pomegranate and turmeric contain some carbonic anhydrase inhibitor activity. However, these do not have enough of this to be clinically useful. It is much more straightforward to take a small dose of diamox (acetazolamide) instead. Although it does not work for everyone with PTC, it helps many. The side effects would be the same if the medicine dose was the same. ...Read more

What to do if i had 1 800 mg iburprofen, 2 4mg odansetron (zofran), and 3 25 mg diphenhydramine with water?

Nothing: Just be cautious next time, better space them out, and don't take them regularly, you slightly overdosed diphenhydramine, 50 mg are enough for each dose. Good that you asked,better exercise caution when using multiple medications, good luck ...Read more

An article says, jarrow n acetyl glucosamine 750mg, jarrow glucosamine hci mega 1000mg, jarrow niainamide cure fructose malabsorption. Is it possible

An article says, jarrow n acetyl glucosamine 750mg, jarrow glucosamine hci mega 1000mg, jarrow niainamide cure fructose malabsorption. Is it possible

Might help, not cure: Fructose malabsorption may be caused by deficiency of glut5 (http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/glut5). I found a report of someone having relief taking the 1st 2 supps you mention (http://glutenfreesoyfree.Wordpress.Com/2012/03/05/potential-cure-for-fructose-malabsorption/) they said these heal cells that produce glut5. There's no research on this but it seems possible. However, on stopping it recurred. ...Read more

Is it OK to take a multivitamin that does not contain potassium, vitamine b-complex, omega 3 supplement, vitamine d, and biotin with spironolactone ?

Spironolactone: Spironolactone blocks the excretion of potassium and if you ingest too much potassium by eating fruit or taking potassium the blood level of potassium can rise to dangerous levels. Vitamin B complex, omega 3, should be no problem. ...Read more
