R digestive enzymes good? Do they actually work with probiotics too? Enzymes such as amylase protease's lipase bromelain cellulase papaya etc. Safe?
Digestive enzymes : are good especially if you lack your own digestive enzymes and there is no long term harm. ...Read more
Does taking OTC digestive enzymes with amylase and amyloglucosidase helps with fructose intolerance?
No: Heads up -- "pop" remedies are often not what they're supposed to be, and some "holistic chinese herbal remedies" are nasty actually liver poisons. If your liver enzymes are up, your physician may retest you off all rx's and alcohol; if still up, labs for hepatitis, hemochromatosis, wilson's and a few others are in the works; if it's not this, a rx for aerobic fitness may be a life-saver. ...Read more
Whoa: If you have an elevated sgpt, you need to discover the cause. I'm going to assume it's not just heavy exercise. You'll get a decent workup for hepatitis b and c, medication effect (repeat off alcohol and all nonessential meds -- ibuprofen's notorious), hemochromatosis, wilson's, and a few others. If still up, your best move is heavy-duty fitness activities rather than hokey "magic food" remedies. ...Read more
I take flp product containing stabilized aloevera gel, fructose, natural cranberry and apple juice, sorbitol, ascorbic and citric acids. What are uses?
Many uses: I'm curious why you're taking a product you don't know the use for. The active ingredient is aloe vera gel- everything else is for flavor or preservatives. Aloe vera has many proven health benefits- it helps reduce inflammation, lowers blood sugar & cholesterol, soothes inflamed GI tracts, etc. You might look for aloe with less added sugars.

Sodium laureth sulfate, ginseng extract, grapefruit peel extract and papaya extract. Are any of these ingredients bad when pregnant ?
Probably ok: Not sure why you have indigestion or diarrhea but usually it is diet related. In general when this occurs, it is best to eat bland food, that is soft and easily digestible. Oats fall in that category. Papayas too if you dont have any allergies to this fruit or sugar problems since it is a high glycemic fruit. ...Read more
Are apples, cherry tomatoes, peaches, light yogurts, avocados, carrots, and watermelon good for diabetics?
Diabetes and Food: I think the simple answer is no. But, when you look at these specific items in your list there are things that are lower in carbohydrates like the yogurt and the avocado. But, in each person with diabetes, the answer may vary based upon how well controlled their blood sugars are. The goal is to eat more protein and less carbohydrates. That means less sugars, less fruits and less carbs overall. ...Read more
Is it ok to use co enzyme q10, salicylic acid, sodium laureth sulfate, passionflower, pineapple, ginseng, grapefruit extracts topically during pregnancy?
Avoid acidic foods: Pineapple juice would likely make acid reflux worse, along with caffeine, peppermint, chocolate, spicy foods, and acidic food such as tomatoes and citrus fruits. Be sure not to eat within 2 hours of lying down to sleep, elevate the head of your bed or use extra pillows. If these things don't work you could try over the counter antacid medications such as ranitidine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No interactions: I typically use Drug-Drug Interaction Checker found at www.drugs.com which showed no interaction (http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=1633-0,1749-15695). However, be aware that milk thistle & omega 3 fatty acids are dietary supplements in the States. As such, manufacturers are not required to prove safety or effectiveness prior to marketing. Plus risk of contamination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
