Is recurrent (but only occasional) loose, bright orange stool a bad sign or normal? My diet consists mostly of grains and dairy, with few vegetables.

Stool color: Stool color and consistency can vary across a wide range of normal, and if your symptoms are only occasional, probably are nothing to worry about. If your stool ever appears bloody or black in color, you see your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room. Continue your healthy diet, since a high fiber diet tends to result in consistent stools! Good luck. ...Read more

Also, you can get a blood test for bilirubin levels, since abnormal bilirubin levels change urine color. Some foods like carrots, blackberries, beets, and rhubarb can turn your pee a pink color. ...Read more

Eval: I agree with dr. Holmes. This warrants medical evaluation first and foremost ssri's can cause a vast array of sexual side effects: decreased libido. Lack of erection, retrograde ejaculation, inability to ejaculate, prolonged erection etc - but I don't know why your ejaculate would be lumpy & orange.

Is it possible for vitamin C in orange juice and ascorbic acid to affect high blood pressure medication?

Is it possible for vitamin C in orange juice and ascorbic acid to affect high blood pressure medication?

Yes and no: Vit c in normal doses does not impact BP meds.

Liquids with over 10 cal/serving (except non-fat milk in moderation) are not good for you. Sweets in liquid form increase blood fats, belly fat & ultimately blood pressure. ...Read more

Eating oranges or supplement to obtain victam c, which one better? Natural or, man-maked?

Which better drinking natural orange juice or pipse?

Just a little OJ but: Both oj and regular soda both have too much sugar. Oj has more sugar than regular soda. Any person who can eat a fruit doesn't need oj (just eat fruit!). The question is: is the sugar going to hurt you worse or sooner, or are the chemicals in soda going to hurt you worse or sooner? If overweight, high in triglycerides, having pre-diabetes or a family history of it, the sugar is one's worse enemy. ...Read more

When can a baby drink natural orange juice?

9 mo, but not needed: I would say about nine months, but in moderation. Juice--even natural juice--has a lot of sugar, and isn't as nutritious as all the hype suggests. Better than 'juice drinks', yes, but not that much better. I often suggest diluting it. But, juice is not necessary for your child. It has vitamin c, yes, but that is easily obtained from many other sources. ...Read more
