Is purity h a (hyaluronic acid) formula safe for use for people who have gout?

Is purity h a (hyaluronic acid) formula safe for use for people who have gout?

No benefit!: There is no benefit from this nutritional supplement. The first issue is to lower uric acid levels to both prevent gout arthritis attacks, but kidney stones and uric acid nephropathy, which can lead to renal failure. Gouty arthritis should never occur after the first attack. Some diet changes can help lower uric acid, but most people need Allopurinol or uloric, plus colchicine. ...Read more

Good day My daughter doesn’t want to eat solid food. She only wants yoghurt and purity. What could be the problem?

Good day
My daughter doesn’t want to eat solid food. She only wants yoghurt and purity. What could be the problem?

Solids before liquid: You didn't mention your baby's age. Solids should start at age 4-6 months of age when baby is able to take a spoon. Try giving solid foods before liquids. It is not unusual for baby to not take a new food until there have been many trials. Don't be surprised if she is playing with her food and getting more on her than inside her tummy. ...Read more

If I practice laws of Jewish family purity, can I become pregnant if I have 25-day cycles and bleed for 6 days?

If I practice laws of Jewish family purity, can I become pregnant if I have 25-day cycles and bleed for 6 days?

Interesting question: It depends on how many days a couple avoids sex. In a 25-day cycle, they would likely need to have sex by day 10 or 11. That means avoiding sex for 9-10 days should still allow conception. If avoiding sex for menses+7 days, it means menses can only be thought of as 2-3 days. One goal in ancient times would have been having more children, so one should consider interpreting laws with that in mind. ...Read more

A prescription of 1g Lovaza pills costs $50 Looking for a lesser expensive omega3 name brand OTC of equivalent purity to substitute.?

Fish oil: Great?
I feel Lovaza is way over priced. Fish oil is mainly indicated for really high triglycerides and its role for primary prevention of heart disease is unclear.
I would ask your local pharmacist for a recommended brand of omega 3--and try to take 1-2 grams a day ...Read more

Baby 7 months GP diagnosed viral throat infection Medication Zithromax, Rinex+Mucospect, Adco Mefenamic Acid. 2 days now baby not feeding milk, only purity , but very minimum , I can't tell if it's throat or teething gums , please advise ?

Baby 7 months GP diagnosed viral throat infection Medication Zithromax, Rinex+Mucospect, Adco Mefenamic Acid. 2 days now baby not feeding milk, only purity , but very minimum , I can't tell if it's throat or teething gums , please advise ?

Time to rethink meds: Any infant with a "viral" sore throat does not need an antibiotic and Zithromax can cause gastrointestinal irritation and poor feeding in anyone at any age. I see no reason for any of the other listed meds either with this diagnosis. The problem that will get baby in trouble is dehydration, which will happen if fluid needs aren't met. This may be from the meds. ...Read more

Did splits at a party at 48. Dumb. Now really hurting. What can I do?

Ice, NSAIDS: You probably stretched the tendons at your hip joint and they are telling you by the pain. Icing the area in the first 48 hours is helpful and the use of nsaids like Ibuprofen or Naproxen can be very comforting. Your tendons will recover unless torn. The sign of tearing is bruising in the area but if that does not occur, recovery should be complete. Otherwise, see your family doctor for help. ...Read more

Gynecomastia?: I assume that you mean that your breast are changing (yes, men have breasts too). That area can change with the rest of your body, because of fat. But if you have a fullness in the glandular tissue, or if the nipples have changed, you may need an evaluation. Things that can affect male breasts include:
hormones (anabolic steroids, for one)
marijuana smoking
breast cancer
other tumors (lung, brain). ...Read more

What can you do at a cocktail party if on diet?

Diet soda: Ah, my perennial problem! I give at least 2 lectures a week and always get invited to the cocktail parties. My solution is to have 1 drink, then ask for a club soda with lime, which everyone assumes is a gin & tonic. And I avoid those little platters full of snacks — each tidbit is about 1, 000 calories. Low-cal alternatives are always available, if you seek them out, or ask. ...Read more

Going to a pool party. Have body cellulite. Cures?

Not really: Real cellulite does not really exist. Fat is deposited irregularly under the skin and there is no superficial cream ointment or other topical substance that can remove it.

Check it out carefully- anyone trying to advocate a topical cellulite treatment is always selling something- plastic surgeons do liposuction for a living, there's no magic. ...Read more
