My toddler does not drink milk at all after she gave up bottle. Should I be concerned about growth and strong bones?

My toddler does not drink milk at all after she gave up bottle. Should I be concerned about growth and strong bones?

Calcium: If she is between 1 and 2 years, she should have whole milk, about 16oz/day,for the fat, as well as Ca. If she is over 2, then she needs calcium, but it doesn't need to be from milk. Ca for 1-3y is 500mg, 4-8 is 800mg, and 9-18y is 1300mg. They now make juices and other foods with added Ca, or you can use a supplement, even Tums (calcium carbonate). ...Read more

Is there such thing as a reverse due date calculator?

Is there such thing as a reverse due date calculator?

Sort of: If your due date is based off of an ultrasound, you could then see when you most likely had your menses and when you conceived. Is that what you mean? If you are sure of your menstrual period, it should correlate closely with your due date from an ultrasound. I hope that helps. :). ...Read more

How to know when I am ovulating using online calculator?

Not accurate: Online calculators make lots of assumption. First they assume that you ovulate, which is not the case for all women. Then they either assume that your periods are exactly 28 days apart or that you ovulate exactly 14 days before your next period. A better way is to use over the counter ovulation prediction kits which will help you know when exactly you are ovulating and time intercourse ...Read more

What is the difference in GFR calculators? Some tell me my egfr is 59 and some tell me its 62?

Difference in GFR: The answer to you question is that the GFR calculators give an estimated, not an actual, gfr. The calculation used to estimate the GFR is based on a person's age, sex, race, height and weight. The difference in your estimated GFR levels is about 5%, perhaps your weight was different. The only way to know what your real GFR is is to have a doctor order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. ...Read more

I have two ovulation-calculator apps, it said. Different answers. One it said last week on 4/15 and the other one it said today 4/20. Confusing, help?

I have two ovulation-calculator apps, it said. Different answers. One it said last week on 4/15 and the other one it said today 4/20. Confusing, help?

Dates: On a normal cycle your ovulation is 14 days before your next period. But since you can't foretell the future, this is of little help. You might have 11-17 days from the beginning of your period until ovulation. After ovulation it is always 14 days to your period. The apps have to assume a 25 day cycle or a 28 day or a 31 day cycle - thus the difference. ...Read more

LP was dec30-jan13. Dd nov6. Conception calculator says feb7-13 was sex leading to conception. Not possible. Just curious if u/s can be off a few days?

Yes it can: When (date) and "how far along were you" (gestational age) when the US for dating was done? Ultrasounds in the second trimester can be off by as much as a week in either direction, third trimester US can be off by even more. First trimester (1st twelve weeks) should be correct +/- 3 days, I hope this helps. ...Read more
