Hello,

last night I accidentally ingested a drop of liquid which contained lye.  I drank a lot of milk and water. should I be concerned?

Lye: one drop that you diluted with milk and water without any problems by now is fine. Lye is a strong base which in larger amounts would have caused severe burns of your mouth esophagus and stomach. The fact that you have no symptoms by now means you were, very, very lucky. ...Read more

Good morning, I will be starting my colonoscopy prep tomorrow. Can I use a small amount of 2% milk in EARLY morning coffee, then start my clear liquid?

Good morning, I will be starting my colonoscopy prep tomorrow. Can I use a small amount of 2% milk in EARLY morning coffee, then start my clear liquid?

Sure: That amount won't make any difference. But I'm a little concerned that bending this "rule" may lead you to bend a few more. Improper or inadequate prep for a colonscopy is the biggest reason many have to be repeated because the exam was suboptimal/inconclusive. You wouldn't want to repeat it. I would strongly encourage you to follow the prep instructions PRECISELY. It's one day:) ...Read more

My son, 16 months old, is allergic to milk. He drinks lactaid, should we stay away from any other foods and or liquids?

Milk allergy?: If your child is allergic to milk, he will not be able to tolerate lactaid, as it is still milk. You need to consult an allergist and get him tested to determine what he is allergic to, if any. He maybe lactose intolerant and that is why he can drink lactaid milk. ...Read more

A co worker said powder coffee creamer clogs your arteries..Is liquid creamer better? Skim milk dosent cut it..Half and half? Which is healthiest

A co worker said powder coffee creamer clogs your arteries..Is liquid creamer better? Skim milk dosent cut it..Half and half? Which is healthiest

moderation: Half and half and whole milk contain a lot of fat. While a certain amount of fat is good to have in your diet (unsaturated fat), too much can be a bad thing. Powdered creamer and liquid creamer are not actually dairy products. This doesn't mean they are healthy though. Your best bet is to pick your favorite and use them in moderation. ...Read more

Avoiding bedwetting in 7year old. Likes to eat ceral with milk before bed. How long after that liquid intake should he use the toilet and then sleep?

Avoiding bedwetting in 7year old. Likes to eat ceral with milk before bed. How long after that liquid intake should he use the toilet and then sleep?

Enuresis alarm: Enuresis can persist into young adulthood and is usually familial. It can be quite frustrating for affected people. First line prevention is avoiding liquids after 6 pm and voiding before bed. Enuresis alarms are devices that attach to the waistband and vibrate when the bladder contracts, and DDAVP is a medication (oral or nasal spray) which are other treatment options. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Gastroenteritis: Viral gastroenteritis usually begins with abdominal discomfort, sometimes associated with fever and/or vomiting, which is later followed by diarrhea. Dehydration can result from the excessive fluid loss, especially in children. Warning signs that something more severe is going on include bloody or bilious (green) vomiting, bloody stools, and severe abdominal pain. ...Read more

I was recently taking mother love more milk plus liquid capsule and now my breasts feel warm does that mean its working. Is it a good or bad thing??

Nobody knows: Motherlove More Milk Plus is advertised as a fenugreek extract. Sellers are claiming it is a breastmilk-production enhancer. Because such herbal supplements are not real medications approved by the FDA, nobody knows what the effects and the side effects are. Especially with plant materials, each batch, and definitely each company's product, can be hugely different in what it truly contains. ...Read more

My 22 month old son woke up throwing up what looks like old milk and after that yellow liquid and lately he haven't been eating right what is wrong?

My 22 month old son woke up throwing up what looks like old milk and after that yellow liquid and lately he haven't been eating right what is wrong?

Vomiting, not eating: If vomiting occurs, you will notice the content of the child's recent meal(s). When all the partially digested food has been vomited, you will normally see a yellow liquid, which is essentially stomach acid. This means that the stomach is empty. If the child is not keeping fluids down (continues to vomit) and/or the "yellow" liquid is now greenish in color, call your pediatrician. ...Read more

Lactose sensitivity?: Comercial baby formulas all tend to be constipating when that is the baby's main source of nutrition. Changing to milk may alter the stooling pattern temporarily. Also, people can have varying levels of lactose sensitivity, and can tolerate dairy products if taken in smaller amounts. The character of bowel movements; hard, soft, liquid, is more important than number of stools. ...Read more

Had no food 24 hours b4 Pillcam but was told no bowel prep nec., & liquids ok, but no milk. Had diluted cran juice. Will still be able to see clearly?

Liquids are ok: Hi, I saw your question was still unanswered and wanted to apologize for the long wait. Probably you have already had the study by now, but it sounds like you did your best already for the study. There's no telling if it will be a "perfect" study but clear liquids are ok. They are easily absorbed and don't leave any solid residual that can block the view of the camera. Hope you're feeling better. ...Read more

My 6 week old baby is spitting up clear liquid and sometimes milk few hours after feeding also cries like in pain and uncomfortable ?

My 6 week old baby is spitting up clear liquid and sometimes milk few hours after feeding also cries like in pain and uncomfortable ?

Sounds like it could: be reflux,caused by the floppy valve between the stomach and esophagus which allows fluids and acid to come back up.This is very common in babies and is usually outgrown by the end of the first year of life,if not before.It is a benign condition as long as your baby is gaining weight. However,since your baby seems to be in pain,you should discuss it with his/her doctor for possible treatment. ...Read more

I got married about 6 months ago, my wife produces milk or liquid from her breast but she is not pregnant. what is wrong?

Galactorrhea: she is likely producing a small amount of breast milk. This can be from lots of nipple stimulation, pituitary over production of prolactin, thyroid issues and certain medications. Its not harmful, but it might be a good idea to have her see a gynecologist to check some blood work and confirm it is milky discharge. ...Read more
