I have had pain in my right ankle for almost four years now. It has steadily gotten worse I went to physical therapy for a while and it didn't help?

Ankle Aches: It sounds like you've had an unresolved injury. Chronic ankle sprains do exist whereby the ligamentous structures are too lax and never regain their original strength even with physical therapy.

It may also be time for more imaging to help. ...Read more

As a 16 year old man, would testosterone speed up my physical development during puberty?

No: Unless you have a deficiency, it shouldn't. And a true abscence would lead to non-formation of male genitalia. The presence of testosterone should be pretty clear with the deeper voice, facial hair, acne, sex drive. Let your body do it safely on its own. Low testosterone is typically diagnosed in older men, and people who previously used so many Anabolic steroids their body shut down production. ...Read more

Can neglecting type 1 diabetes for 1-2 years result in the development mental illness?

Can neglecting type 1 diabetes for 1-2 years result in the development mental illness?

MI No; Dementia, Yes: Since diabetes mellitus (↑ed glucose) diffusely degrades a huge number of complex brain/body functions, including greatly accelerating atherosclerosis, it degrades brain function in many subtle ways, over time in far more blatant ways (e.g. Stroke), thus increases dementia. Mental illness: thoughts, ideas, behaviors which are destructive to self and others, a different issue, remains more complex. ...Read more

I was taking fluoxetine/prozac from 15 to 20 years old, can this affect my growth/development?

It's good to have gotten treatment, and become a better adult than if treatment was missed. Each teen only gets one shot at growing up, and is lucky if he doesn't miss out on his disease treatment. ...Read more

For a 31-week preemie with no complications and normal development as of 2-years-old, how likely are future problems due to prematurity?

Very unlikely: A 31-weeker who had no complications and has been normal to age two years, can be looked upon as a normal person just like the full term kids. We are all human, so there is no perfect child. Any future problems are likely due to being a human, and not due to being a 31-weeker. ...Read more

17 years old and I still have breast buds and getting breast development a lot more intense lately. What's wrong?

17 years old and I still have breast buds and getting breast development a lot more intense lately. What's wrong?

Probably nothing: Everyone goes through puberty at different ages and with different rates of physical change. Some begin as early as 11 or 12 some are delayed until later teen years. Its a great sign that your breasts are changing now, it means you are releasing estrogens and the body is changing as expected. If there isn't as much change or things don't seem right see a gynecologist they can check hormone levels ...Read more

Could binge drinking during years 14-17 interfered with my brain development permanently? I have stopped drinking. Can my brains still catch up?

Could binge drinking during years 14-17 interfered with my brain development permanently? I have stopped drinking. Can my brains still catch up?

Yes, yes: Yes binge drinking killed brain cells. The good news is you are young and as humans don't use 90% of their brain cells, so you have lots of brain cells you can still use to "catch up" with what you did during those teen years. But you have to stimulate the brain cells, exercise them. Read, listen to classical music, meditate, do physical exercise, do crosswords - all of this will help your brain! ...Read more
