Depends: Any calorie intake in excess of what you burn off daily will help you add weight. Ensure or Pediasure are balanced supplements that can do this. However, simply eating more can just add fat, not lean muscle which is what most would prefer, An exercise routine with mixed cardio and resistance exercise can enable muscle growth. ...Read more

44 year old man, LDL cholesterol 180. Other params healthy. Possible to reduce LDL without drugs?

44 year old man, LDL cholesterol 180. Other params healthy. Possible to reduce LDL without drugs?

Exercise: LDL can be lowered with diet and exercise. At that level, without any other medical problems, nonsmoking, no family members with heart disease, it is not unreasonable to do a trial of diet and exercise, but it will take a lot of work. If you have any other issues or family with heart disease, medication is warranted. Diet should be low carb, exercise should be cardio 4-5x/week. ...Read more

Does sleep deprivation cause perm. Damage? Last yr I slept typically 6-7 hours, and even went without sleep for 3 separate nights.

Does sleep deprivation cause perm. Damage? Last yr I slept typically 6-7 hours, and even went without sleep for 3 separate nights.

I think u will be OK: Sleep deprivation can up regulate some genes and down regulate others. Poor sleep can cause cognitive impairment, high blood pressure and increase the risk for stroke and heart disease. It can also cause Insulin resistance and increase in a hunger hormone which can cause wgt gain. Some of these effects may be permanent; however, they can be mitigated w/ adequate rest. Your sleep loss is minimal. ...Read more

I have discomfort after having a crown placed on #14 (after rct). I think floss may have been trapped during the perm cementing, is this possible?

I have discomfort after having a crown placed on #14 (after rct). I think floss may have been trapped during the perm cementing, is this possible?

Cementation issue?: Perhaps you are referring to retraction cord (used to retract gum tissue and keep the area dry) rather than dental floss. Is it possible it was trapped during the cementation process? Yes. I suggest you return to the dentist to have the area evaluated and any problems corrected. It may just need an adjustment or be temporarily sore and resolve on its own but should still be checked out. ...Read more

Temp crown fell off twice every 5-7 days. I'm scheduled to put on perm crown this monday. Will my perm crown be prone to fall off like the temp ones?

Temp crown fell off twice every 5-7 days. I'm scheduled to put on perm crown this monday. Will my perm crown be prone to fall off like the temp ones?

Probably not: Temporary crowns by their very nature are designed to come off easily and the cement (adhesive) used is a softer material.
Temporary crowns can "flex" during chewing and the "bite" may not be level, which could cause them to dislodge.

Final crowns, do not "flex" and the cement is stronger. But, this may occur especially on teeth that are very short, or patients who clench or grind their teeth. ...Read more

I was at the corner of a sidewalk and a firetruck decided to hit its horn almost right next to me. Now I'm reading loud noises can cause perm damage.

You'll be fine: Those loud noises regarding permanent damage are after a life time of damage. Like living on an aircraft carrier or listening to loud music with your headphones for decades. A random blast by a firetruck will not cause any permanent damage. You'll be fine :) ...Read more

My 11 year old has scabbies, after she's showered and I've applied the perm, will it cause any problems if not washed off within 14hrs. What's the abs?

My 11 year old has scabbies, after she's showered and I've applied the perm, will it cause any problems if not washed off within 14hrs. What's the abs?

Better to wash off: It is better to wash of under 14 hours. It is best to apply before bed and then shower off in the morning. In addition, you should wash all her pajamas/bed cloths, the bed sheets and pillow cases after she wakes and showers. A normal wash cycle for the cloths and sheets is fine. It is very important to repeat this two weeks after the first treatment. ...Read more

Other supplement: At your age if you want to use a supplement I'd choose one for adults such as Ensure or Boost. Of course, there is also just the old upping your caloric intake every day by 20%. Also, has doctor checked things like your thyroid function to make sure that's not your problem? Sounds like time to discuss concern with doctor and a good dietician! ...Read more

Not recommended: So soon after the relaxer. Both are chemicals that weaken the chemical bonds and support protein of your hair shafts. You may see early breakage or weaker hair with the second chemical treatment so soon after the first.
Hair breakage, hair thinning, lack of hair growth, scalp irritation, scalp damage, hair loss are common complaints after chemical treated hair. ...Read more

That's not a common: First step in the U.S. for infants 2-10 mos. Who have dry, firm pebbly stools, no BM for 2-3 days, cry when having a BM & taking 10 minutes or more to pass stool. An ounce or 2 of diluted Apple or Pear juice/day may help. Since you'll have questions about diet & behavior, you need to feel comfortable with your baby's doctor. Healthychildren.

My one year 5months daughter has been coughing at night. I went to see a pedia and she said it is an allergy. How do I know what she is allergic to.

See an Allergist: There are many possibilities food? Dust mites? Pets? But allergist would 1st take a careful history (ie., do allergies run in your family? Etc), &possibly due a few simple scratch tests (usually better than blood test & feels like a prick with a toothpick. Not needle). Sometimes no cause is found but allergist can help with simple treatment measures. We see this type of cough often...Don't worry. ...Read more
