Ok Thanks You
Holter monitor result, Total SV Ectopic 12063, Total V Isolated 16, SV Isolated 12057. Doctor says Ok, Do you agree? Thanks
Holter result: The numbers in the report in and of themselves are not a big deal. Holter reports have to be taken in the context of the patient and their whole story, that isn't here. As your doctor says the study is OK, that is likely correct. This is the more so since you list a stress test and a cath and I presume they too were OK ...Read more
I'd be careful.: While exercise tends to lower the blood pressure in the long term, weight training will raise the blood pressure temporarily while you're pressing and pulling the weights, and in your case your numbers may achieve dangerous levels. Treat the high blood pressure first with prudent medications. ...Read more
Masturbation: Madturbation is a common practice and there is no set limit on how often is too much. I suppose if it were to interfere with your daily life and activities that might be too often. Additionally if you were to cause trauma to your genitalia with masturbation that too would be excessive. ...Read more

Greetings. I want to ask, in my current age (26) is it ok/recommended for me to start using anti-aging creams, products etc.? Thanks in advance
It is OK.: Our skin ages every second especially when we don't eat properly, do not keep it clean, apply harsh solutions to it, stay out too long in the sun without protection, smoke or drink. So, there is nothing wrong to use anti-aging creams. Remember to also keep yourself hydrated. ...Read more
Check the label: Taking supplements can be helpful, depending on the reason for taking them. At times though, looking at what mother nature has to offer can be better. An example I use is that an apple, which has on average 6mgs of vit c, because of the 12, 000 other phytonutrients in it, will give you more antioxidant protection than taking 1500 mgs of vitamin c in pill form. Vitamins are food fragments. ...Read more

Maybe: Clearly you have to ensure that he will not drown. The other issue with a newborn is to make sure that he are not going to sunburn, as their skin is very pale, and does not protect him from much sun. So, use sunscreen if you are going to be out for very long. As to how he react to the water, he just spent 9 months under water, and should be ok on that part of it. ...Read more

Any surgeon will tell you that patients that smoke have delayed healing. There are many reasons for this, compromised vascularity being right up there.

better yet, stop altogether! ...Read more

Is it ok to use doxylamine succinate at 25-50 mg for more than 2 weeks. Also how long of a break is needed between 2 wks of using it? Thanks
Yes it is ok: Doxylamine succinate is a first generation antihistamine and is used for allergy. As compared to the second generation antihistamines like loratadine (Claritin)it will cause drowsiness.But if you can tolerate and have no side effects you can take it in dose of 25mgm longer than 2weeks. But I advice my patients to switch to second generation antihistamines like Claritin, Allegra, Zyrtec or Xyzal. ...Read more

I had a clean colonoscopy at age 45. No polyps etc. Just turned 50 and wondering if I should do it now, or is it ok to wait. Thanks in advance, ?
Maybe: First question is do you have any symptoms to suggest colon disease. Change in bowel habits, rectal bleeding, unexplained weight loss most commonly. If not, next question is family history. Any one in your first degree family have colon cancer or polyps? If yes then have one at 5 years, if no then recommendations are to wait 10 years, again, if no symptoms. ...Read more

Let it go!: Yes. You can let go of 500 of the 2500 without any problem. Make sure the bulk of your calories are coming from quality proteins, good fats and a huge variety of plant-based foods. Keep your food low in refined carbohydrates. Keep up the exercise and let go of the weight. Let it go! ...Read more
Hi Doc, last night I had suddenly awake & felt some discomfort. My vision was doubled & hazy. After a few minutes it became OK. Is this some serious problem. Please suggest. Thanks. Kuldeep?
That's just fine: This is right at the average for a guy when he's excited. The pictures on the internet have created something of a distorted idea of what a guy is supposed to look like. A guy who's really big is at a disadvantage -- he's incompatible with many women, has less ability to stimulate the most sensitive nerves at the front & probably can't get as hard. Enjoy what you have & use it responsibly. ...Read more
