Would also need to know what other medications, supplements, or drugs you might be taking. Do you drink caffeinated beverages? ...Read more

For many, lack of at least some grey is a deal breaker. ...Read more

Make a healthy smoothie at home if needed. Find high calorie nutrient dense foods so do not need large quantity to be consumed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

In my elderly patients and those on mouth-drying meds, it is not uncommon to see new root cavities after routine use of these "nutritional supplements." moderation means variation--no one food/item is a panacea, and everything comes at with a risk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
