Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?
Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more
Will supplementing a lower protein semi-vegetarian diet with whey protein powder improve immune function?
Probably: This depends on sufficiency of protein in your diet but deficiency of Amino Acids is not unusual ; grows more common as we age, as most over age 60 produce insufficient hydrochloric acid, needed to digest protein. Low protein impairs immune function; whey is a superb source proven to increase glutathione, important for immune function. There are big differences in quality-see http://bit.Ly/1fpottv. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more
Yes, unless allergic: There are 2 main groups of foods to avoid on a candida diet: sugars (including lactose) & simple starches that feed candida & any foods you may be allergic to. Those with candida often develop allergies to gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, almonds & yeast. If you are not allergic to whey then it's healthy to eat. The best way to tell is to avoid potential allergens for at least a week then try them. ...Read more
Any pure protein....: ...powder is protein. It's what else that's added 2 it that needs watching. Read labels carefully & if U don't understand what's been added, ask Ur PCP or a dietitian. 2 much protein will challenge Ur kidneys, so more is not always better. U need 50gms/day generally. Add supplement as U exercise especially in weight training.U have bbetter dose control with powered rather than capsules or pills. ...Read more
Not by itself : It is worth remembering that white rice as a staple in eastern countries caused the ancient nutrient deficient disease called beriberi. Rice without the cusp that surrounds the grain is just starch and is metabolized as glucose. Glucose requires vitamin b to feed the energy mechanisms of cells. Taking starch without the necessary vitamins is like gas in a car cylinder with inadequate spark plug. ...Read more
Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone. I believe it is wise to minimize sugars and simple starches, but i believe a diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and low-fat proteins is healthier than a strict low carb diet (which is relatively high in fat and protein). See http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/01/20/diet-and-health/ for my essay on the pros and cons of various diets. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
DANGEROUS, however:: A no carb diet would consist only of meat ; eggs; i don't know anyone who recommends this. It would result in many nutritional deficiencies, completely lacking vitamin c, fiber, flavonoids ; other phytonutrients essential for good health. There is lots of research showing benefits of a vegetarian diet but none on the benefits of no carb diet. However, many recommend a low carb diet. See comment:. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

8 wk old milk/soy protein allergy -on neocate, &allergic to rice. Showed similar reaction to nutra that contained rice/corn starch-allergic to starch?
Milk Allergy: Allergies are due to a reaction to protein. Corn is a starch or carbohydrate. If you infant reacted to nutra, it would not be from reacting to the starch. I assume the reaction was either eczema or bloody stools, not gas or a change in stools. If the reaction was not eczema or bloody stools, your baby may be intolerant and not allergic. ...Read more
Think my 1yr old has a milk protein allergy, have switched her to rice milk formula. Is this ok? Its only been a week, she seems to be happier, still eating solids 3 times a day with snacks. Consumes up to 24oz of this "formula" plus juice and h2o sippy
A : A milk protein allergy can present at this age if you have switched to whole milk, and have not been using a milk based formuls in infancy. Depending on what kind of formula you were using throughout infancy, an allergy typically would have been a problem earlier. "toddler" formulas are more costly and you hate to restrict her diet if she does not have a true allergy. I suggest you talk more with your pediatrician or have allergy testing performed to confirm a true allergy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Calories in n out: That's a good start but ... You basically need to burn more calories than you take in. Increase your exercise, choose healthier, less-caloric foods and drinks. The nice thing is that if u build more muscle you will even burn more calories while you sleep! and don't focus too much on weight. Focus more on pants-size, etc. Muscle weighs more than fat but that's ok--its good wt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Masturbation: Normal: I have absolutely no idea what you are really asking. There is no connection between the normal and natural sexual activity of masturbation and how fat or thin you are. If you are having guilt or anxiety or shame for masturbation then please no there is no medical reason not to masturbate. Every man you know masturbates or has masturbated. This is a normal part of the human experience. ...Read more

Are veggie sausages containing soya protein isolate n soya protein bad to eat say if u had 4 would that be too much soya. Also chocolate in one day?
A few thoughts: First, everything in moderation. Soy/textured vegetable protein (TVP) is a good product with a lot of protein/low cost. But TVP is highly manufactured and subjected to high heat etc in processing. TVP causes GI side effects in some people and is reported to mimic estrogen effects in women. Most also contains MSG. Can not really call it a health food..OK in moderation/2-3 servings per day. ...Read more

Because they know your history and physical problems it will be easier to nswer your question.
