I take a multivitamin plus vitamin c, d, all b's with niacin and fish oil, calcium, red yeast rice, should I take the vitamin magnesium with these & why?

I take a multivitamin plus vitamin c, d, all b's with niacin and fish oil, calcium, red yeast rice, should I take the vitamin magnesium with these & why?

I don't like it.: Truth be told, I don't like combining Niacin with the red yeast rice as they can both have toxic effects upon the liver. I hope you're having your liver blood enzyme levels monitored on that combination. Adding Magnesium to all of this is not my concern as I don't see any issue in that as long as your doses of all these other medications are not excessive. ...Read more

Cholesterol: total 260, HDL 57, triglicerides 122, ldl179.Statins or antiinflammatorymeasures?Whataboutasprindaily?Iworkoutregularly.Female, white, 5'6"170

Hyperlipidemia: Good morning: your lab results look like you are an athlete. You are doing all you can naturally to keep your risk low. This is seen in the good HDL level and the low triglyceride level. Now the rest is genetics. Thus it would appear to me time to start on a statin and to add a low dose Aspirin to your daily regimen. ...Read more

My HDL is 24, trig 97, total 135 i'm a 38yo male in "good health" BP 110/60ish.

Are there any long term risks in taking 6g fish oil @60%=4g of omega3?

What for?: Why do you feel the need to take so much fish oil? First of all, you are better off getting your fish oil directly from fish like wild alakan salmon or sardines. Second, high concentrations of fish oil can cause anti coagulation that can make you susceptible to bleeding. Good health will not come from a pill. ...Read more

My blood test results: total bilirubin: 1.41 h ast: 40 h alt: 100 h total alk phosphatase: 43 l serum total protein: 7.1 e.R. Said hepatitis?

My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1

e.R. Said hepatitis?

Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

Are these products used to treat acne? - ROC correction serum & Bioderma sebium global?

Not best choices: The first is overpriced hyped retinol. Bioderma has salicylic acid that may work. Both compounds have some use in some acne preparations, but if you're serious about managing acne, start with some topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, and ask your physician if you need something more. ...Read more

I have many acne, pimple. I used salicylic acid base face wash 2% and bengel proxide gel AC 2.5% at night..... Pless tell  this combination really kil?

Monitor response: Salicylic acid based face wash and benzoyl peroxide are both routinely used in the management of acne. It can take 4-6 weeks to assess how the skin is responding to the treatment. If after 2 months of daily use this doesn't improve the acne, follow up with PCP to consider other treatment options. ...Read more
