Hi my 1 year has been eating but like really little and doesn't want to eat like a real meal is this normal for her?

Re-examine the issue: My expectation for feeding at that age is 3-5 good feeding days a month ; the rest nibbling or grazing. There interest also shifts to carbohydrates to sustain activity rather than protein to sustain growth. Feed at the table ; be sure appetizing food is always available in a for they could sample. As long as the growth rate ; activity level are normal, relax. Think balanced week not balanced meal. ...Read more

I guess that perioprotect would need to be used 3 x's a day since 3 meals. I think bacteria reforms after one hour. So, what is its real value?

I guess that perioprotect would need to be used 3 x's a day since 3 meals. I think bacteria reforms after one hour. So, what is its real value?

Local control: It's similar to when you have an infection, you don't have to take antibiotics every hour in order for it to be effective. The biggest difference is that with perioprotect you are controlling the biofilm and bacterial colonies under the gum line and in-between the teeth at a local level rather than systemically. ...Read more

I am going for my quarterly periodontal cleaning maintenance visit. I hear that I can eat a light meal directly after. I wait 4 hours. Real answer?

I am going for my quarterly periodontal cleaning maintenance visit. I hear that I can eat a light meal directly after. I wait 4 hours. Real answer?

Depends: With a regular dental cleaning, ok to eat after the cleaning. If you received a Fluoride treatment, you should wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking. This ensures the treatment takes full effect and that the teeth have been able to absorb the fluoride. I advise you to speak candidly with your dental office for the best answer. I ...Read more

Want to know what is the real cause of my body odor and what can I do to stop it was told that digestive enzymes after meal would help with the odor.

See a doctor: I recommend seeing a doctor so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms. It is difficult to find the reason why because I do not have your medical records nor do I know your lifestyle, so it is best to see a doctor for this so they can find the underlying cause. ...Read more

How to deal with weird hunger pains 2-3 hours after meals? Gastroscopy is negative and I tried PPI, can it be psycological? I got obese cause of this

How to deal with weird hunger pains 2-3 hours after meals? Gastroscopy is negative and I tried PPI, can it be psycological? I got obese cause of this

Yes, it can: Interpretation of physical signals can be misread by people. A good specialist psychotherapist might be able to help you learn to better responses to the 'weird' cues you get. You seem to know that it can not be 'real' need for food and that will be a great start. Cognative/Emotional understanding and Retraining is perhaps better than medication to address your 'real' needs. Best wishes. ...Read more

Y? Normal day intake, poptart, ice cream, popcorn, Apple, cheese. Go weeks without "real meal" THEN eat one & MAJOR Poops! Makeme NOT want 2 eat again

Y? Normal day intake, poptart, ice cream, popcorn, Apple, cheese. Go weeks without "real meal" THEN eat one & MAJOR Poops! Makeme NOT want 2 eat again

Poor diet: Poptart, ice cream, popcorn, apple, and cheese does not provide adequate nutrition. There are several essential nutrients that are lacking. Eating small amounts frequently is healthy but you need much more variety in your diet. When you go weeks without a "real meal", and THEN eat one, your intestines have a hard time digesting the entire meal, resulting in more waste (MAJOR poop). ...Read more

What exactly does eating one meal a day do?

Confuses body: The human body is actually designed to eat small amounts frequently — that gives the best control of natural hormones and blood sugar. When you eat only once a day, the body thinks you don't have access to food and fears starvation. So it starts making hormones to lay down layers of fat to make sure it has enough calories if food source is cut off. You are actually making your body make more fat! ...Read more
