For a preemie if it was 2 months old but 4 weeks early is the risk for sids go by their age from when they are born or their original due date?
12 months: This is by definition. In my forensic pathology practice, most "sids" cases that i see have occurred in an unsafe sleep environment. Historically, many have been missed homicides, and a pathologist will always want to rule out everything from having been fed raw honey (botulism) to being born without sweat glands to mutated ion channels in the heart. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Suffocation: Soft bedding can definitely increase babies risk for accidental suffocation. This could be wrongly classified as SIDS. A firm crib matress with a standard sheet is low risk. Those cribs you see at pottery barn with all the really soft fluffy items, including expensive plush crib bumpers are dangerous. A thin bumper is ok, a plush one is not! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Suppression: Unusual that an individual was started on trt at the age of 44. There is no specific risk if your treatment was appropriately implemented, other than infertility (by way of "-" feedback inhibition, if you had normal spermatogenesis at age 44). Your follow-up test should include a hct and cholesterol: while trt should put you at your "usual" chol risk, erythrocytosis can make your blood "thicker". ...Read more
