Greetings Dr Sandra, I have a problem wit my eyes because While I was off my mind I stared at the sun, is there any medication that I can use to heal m?

Depends: Is the vision changed? Staring at the sun normally is too painful to sustain and you would blink and probably avoid the light to prevent damage. True staring at the sun while not blinking focuses the sun on the light receptors of the retina and will burn them out causing permanent loss. No medication will correct this but time will cause some improvement. ...Read more

How old do your baby gotta be to stop eating during the night?

After 3 months old: At each check-up, the doctor can confirm the baby is fine. Parents patiently wait 3 months before most babies sleep better at night. Until then, parents switch off at night for one feeding, so the husband can use a bottle for one of the feedings while the wife gets a chance to sleep a 4-hour stretch during the night. After 3 months of age, most babies can sleep about a 6-7 hour stretch at night. ...Read more

I've gotten sick for the second time in two weeks. What is wrong with me?

Be Strong, Not Wrong: I'll bet it's two phases of the same illness, or just a dip in one phase. It's not that uncommon. Even if it seems completely different. Of course, you haven't mentioned the symptoms so it would be hard to give you further guidance. So, look, even if it is some other rare weird thing you have, there's nothing wrong with you. Just go see a doctor if this doesn't get better by, say, a month. ...Read more

I'm 27 and me and my friends think I've gotten taller in the last few months. Is this possible?

I'm 27 and me and my friends think I've gotten taller in the last few months. Is this possible?

Growth at 27y: Hi! No! Its not possible physiologoically. The growth that gives us height comes from the upper femoral epiphyses. They are sealed by age 18y. and there is no more growth. If you have a growth hormone pituitary tumor at age 18 and actively growing, you can continue to grow and become a pituitary giant but even those epiphyses are closed by age 20. No. Someone wearing high heels? Perhaps? ...Read more

How can I make my coock big. And long time I do sex with my wife, I live in saudia, ther ar have any mabecen?

No medicines.: I do not know your age, it your penis, and how big it gets, is simply a factor of what you were born with. They come in all sorts of sizes, length and girth vary from one man to another. There is no medicine or trick to making your penis larger.
But size is really less important than what you do during sex to please your wife. Ask her how you can please her...It does not require a big penis. ...Read more

I have a A/G ratio of 3.0. 3 months ago it was 1.5. Should I be concerned that it has gotten so high, so fast? What can cause it to be high?

I have a A/G ratio of 3.0. 3 months ago it was 1.5. Should I be concerned that it has gotten so high, so fast? What can cause it to be high?

See your doctor.: First, ask your doctor. A repeat test may help. If truly elevated, the A/G ratio may be the result of underproduction of immunoglobulins (Igs), or less likely, elevated albumin. More tests, such as liver function tests and serum protein electrophoresis, may be needed to determine the cause (which can range from benign to serious). These can be ordered by your doctor as appropriate. Best wishes! ...Read more

Eat fewer calories: To help the tummy look flatter, one can do exercises to build very strong abdominal muscles. It will take a lot of work, and will burn off calories. One must not eat more calories than he burns off, or he cannot lose weight. Helpful weight loss foods are natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (without salad dressing). ...Read more
