Age ~16.5. Height 161 cm. Male. Maybe late puberty as the mustache just started growing also voice cracked 4 months ago. Need help to increase height.

Height: You can't control your height. You should certainly eat healthy food and exercise regularly to be healthy, but your height is primarily genetically determined. If you have late puberty and even a second growth spurt in the males in your family, you may continue to grow for a while, but there's no way to know for sure. Accept who you are. Be the best you you can be! ...Read more

12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

Nutrition!: A gastric bypass is a very complex nutrition situation. If your physician has not dealt with it much i would suggest asking for a referral to a nutritionist or a bariatric center. That being said, the dosage of iron is fda approved treatment for iron deficiency, and the vitamin d is a reasonable amount. You have many nutrient levels that should be monitored and carefully watched! ...Read more

And if I am not mistaken they can only do a physical post job offer, and not discriminate based on physical exam findings. Anyway asthma, should not have much bearing on an office job. ...Read more

Male 55 healthy/active prostate cancer, scheduled for rp, psa 6.5 biopsies 6of8 pos 2aggessive, gleason 7. Are there other options to consider other than surg. Ct and bone scan clear. ?

Male 55 healthy/active prostate cancer, scheduled for rp, psa 6.5 biopsies 6of8 pos 2aggessive, gleason 7. Are there other options to consider other than surg. Ct and bone scan clear. ?

Yes but: Alternatives are external beam radiation and radiation seeds (brachytherapy). At your age, conservative (watching) isn't advised. All of the therapies can cause urinary incontinence and e.D. - with surgery, they get better over time for most. With radiation, they get worse over time. Surgery is the time honored best of a bad situation. Good luck. ...Read more

The best "age" is determined by an early ultrasound between 6 and 12 weeks gestation. Accuracy of ultrasound decreases as pregnancy progresses. ...Read more

I've partial thickness ACL tear along its femoral attachment. I'm 19 years old and  a sportsman too i can't run from  almost last 3 month. please help

See a specialist: Partial ACL tears do happen but are very uncommon. Often a radiologist will make that diagnosis but does not mean it is correct. See a Sports Orthopedic surgeon who can give you a correct diagnosis based on the MRI and a good exam. Even if it is torn, pain is uncommon with running after 3 months. There may be more going on. ...Read more

Can you develop hives suddenly after long term use of daily baby aspirin (15 years). IgE normal. Recurrent hives x 9 months. Skin test/ labs normal. ?

Yes: Sorry to hear you have this very distressing condition. Random onset of hives is quite common and may not have anything to do with the aspirin particularly if there has been no lapse in the aspirin regimen. Labs cannot confirm or rule out aspirin allergy. A careful history taking and timeline is essential. FYI Aspirin / NSAIDS sensitivity (aka AERD) is a different animal. ...Read more
