Why do men read fine print better than women? I read that men are able to read fine print better than women, why is that true?

Not true.: No major differences in near sightedness or far sightedness! A have mild glasses for driving, but I can see quite well up close. Since more people who age become far sighted and need reading glasses, they are amazed that I can read very fine print on my iphone! ...Read more

Why does the pharmacy print dosages in milliliters?

Why does the pharmacy print dosages in milliliters?

A matter of accuracy: Medication dosage often needs precision for the illness or to make the meds last. There is a problem using common kitchen measures to do so. If I want a kid to get 5ml of med/dose, I could write for a teaspoon, but some common teaspoons would measure out 3.5ml and some 7. Over time I could under or over medicate the patient. Millileters are easily measured by syringes or droppers & assure accuracy. ...Read more

Is it time for me to get new glasses if I take them off to read small print?

Is it time for me to get new glasses if I take them off to read small print?

Likely...: At forty years of age most people will begin to have problems reading small print and will need bifocals. At 30, presbyopia or needing bifocals, is unlikely. You may have had a major change in your prescription and your current glasses need to be changed. I would see your ophthalmologist and have an exam. ...Read more

Could you tell me what this print out of a pet scan results means?

Could you tell me what this print out of a pet scan results means?

Discuss with doctor.: It is best to discuss your pet scan results with your physician so that you can be sure that you have a detailed and correct understanding of the scenario. If you have any specific questions, be sure to have them clarified. Without the results, it is difficult to answer your question. Hope this helps. ...Read more

What is the difference between organ printing and tissue engineering?

No short answer: Organ printing: human cells + biological solution promotes specific tissue types (differentiation). Using a special computer tool (cell printer), cells are dispensed thru valves to print out and create droplets of cells of varying concentration (now in a 3d manner). If not killed, can be manipulated into different cell types/structures.
T.E: living cells are engineered to repair/replace tissues. ...Read more

Do EEG reports print out "clips" of the abnormal areas as a sort of summary sheet?

Do EEG reports print out "clips" of the abnormal areas as a sort of summary sheet?

Nice idea but no: It would be very nice if a report could be generated with the physician's interpretation as well as selected abnormal examples. However eegs contain huge amounts of data, even in a one second tracing, much more than a 12 lead ekg. This because there are many more waveforms to be displayed and accurate display may require at least several seconds of recorded data to be reproduced. ...Read more

When will the 3D printing of organs, such as kidneys, start helping patients?

When will the 3D printing of organs, such as kidneys, start helping patients?

Organs that are 3D: An organ (O) is composed of cells. And 3D printing does not copy the cells of an organ. Merely copying the shape of an O does not make the copy work the same a real O does, sorry. ...Read more

My body shows print marks when I rest my leg on something and stays there for long. Edema.?

Probably: Indentations in your lower legs around you ankles and up the front of your lower leg are the best areas to determine if you have "pitting" edema. If you press down in those areas and the indentation stays deep and for a few minutes then that is considered edema. ...Read more

One of your doctors has replied me that a spyrometry test prints out an interpretation. Can it actually print out a defining print out stating the words abnormal and asthmatic?

One of your doctors has replied me that a spyrometry test prints out an interpretation. Can it actually print out a defining print out stating the words abnormal and asthmatic?

No it cannot.: The interpretation that accompanies spirometry tests indicates lung volume and function as a percentage of normal findings. The diagnosis of asthma also includes finding out how much these abnormal values can be reversed with use of bronchodilators (inhalers that open up tubes in the lungs). Asthma is a disease of both inflamed and narrowed airways that can be mostly reversed. ...Read more

I woke up with my thumb being numb and tingly and it is still not back to normal just on the thumb print area?

Unclear: It is unclear why your thumb went numb randomly for no good reason. It can be related to a pinched nerve from your neck to pinched nerves all along your upper extremities. It can also be the signs of neurological disorders. It is best to be evaluated by a provider. ...Read more

Feeling nauseous, eyes hurting, slight headache after reading print on phone or cpu. Isn this normal? What going on? Wat can I do?

Migraine maybe: It's normal to be concerned about your health, & to worry about symptoms. The possibilities are numerous--ranging from acid reflux (i.e. heartburn) or a peptic ulcer to pancreatic or biliary disease, migraine, even stress. Alarm signs include weight loss, bleeding, recurrent vomiting, significant tenderness. Whatever the cause, get evaluated so correct treatment can begin please. ...Read more

Could a person operated with deep brain stimulation work in a printing factory?

Could a person operated with deep brain stimulation work in a printing factory?

Yes.: Patients that have undergone deep brain stimulation (dbs) surgery are able to do pretty much everything that they could do before the surgery. Trauma to the implantable pulse generator (ipg, or "battery") in the chest and the connecting wires should be avoided. Especially with recent advances in ipgs, there is limited interaction between environmental magnetic fields and the device. ...Read more

I have a bruise on my forearm. I assume from my dog because it's in the shape of a paw print. But I don't recall when it happened. It is over 1 month?

Cant read the fine print with bifocals without getting a headache. If I go without, could it cause eye damage?

Cant read the fine print with bifocals without getting a headache. If I go without, could it cause eye damage?

Bifocal Headaches: The direct response is that 'not using the appropriate near spectacle correction won't cause eye damage', but you will not see the fine print and will likely get headaches. Your headache when wearing the bifocals could have many reasons: too strong a bifocal. Eyes not working together at close range - we call it "phoria'- even insufficient bifocal power. In short to go to an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Can I drink wine while taking cephalexin 500mg. There was no warnings on the bottle or print out. I am currently taking this to heal a boil.

Can I drink wine while taking cephalexin 500mg. There was no warnings on the bottle or print out. I am currently taking this to heal a boil.

Don't recommend it: Alcohol is not a good choice when trying to treat an infection. It impairs the ability of the white blood cells to fight bacteria and produce antibodies. In addition, alcohol causes a variety of drug interactions, including with antibiotics used to treat infections. The treatment for boils is surgical, and if they are incised and drained, antibiotics are not always necessary. Would avoid alcohol. ...Read more

This: This could be a serious neuro-ophthalmological problem, and you need to see a pediatric or neuro-ophtalmologist right a way. It could also be a problem with muscle imbalance relating to the prism in the glasses, which can be easily fixed with new glasses. Either way, get to your eye md as soon as possible to have this checked out. ...Read more

our blood become thinner and we becomes easy to bleed.

simple itching that will make you rubbed your eye while you sleep, will leave you with a black eye.

Could anyone explain what bear print in eyes is linked to bowel cancer been told I have over 3 spots in both eyes and need tests why?

Bear prints?: Freckles on the retina (congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium) were discovered to be a marker for gardner's, a variant of familial polyposis of the colon (fap). You're an adult and without a personal or family history, you may simply wish to be screened for colon cancer more often than other folks. ...Read more

What is eye accommodative spasm? Had lasik for myopia. Can see small print, but distance vision goes blurry after computer. Any fix for this?

What is eye accommodative spasm? Had lasik for myopia. Can see small print, but distance vision goes blurry after computer. Any fix for this?

"Stiff Focusing": Accomodative inertia/spasm. As we get older, the flexible lens in our eye that is responsible for focusing at various distances becomes "stiff". Many patients as they reach age 40 will notice that it takes more effort to see at near. Some who can muster enough focusing power for near work will have trouble relaxing their focusing muscles to see at distance. Frequent breaks/ weak reading glasses. ...Read more
