How much insulation?: The baby is well protected and has your abdomen and amniotic fluid for protection from most environmental things, however, immersion in very cold water will stress the baby and may even slow its heart rate which is not advisable. ...Read more

What are the best cancer centers in Canada? How about in Vancouver? The cancer in question is Colorectal cancer. Thank you!

What are the best cancer centers in Canada? How about in Vancouver? The cancer in question is Colorectal cancer. Thank you!

Not in Vancouver: As in the US. When one has a specialty problem one goes to a center, not to a location. On this basis when there is a major cancer problem one seeks advice from MD Anderson in Texas or Sloan Kettering in NY. In Canada, it is the Princess Margaret Hospital and McGill Univ. Hospital. Otherwise any hospital in Vancouver that has a colorectal surgeon can be consulted. ...Read more

How would I go about getting an appointment with an endocrinologist in Vancouver, Canada regarding HGH therapy to increase height?

How would I go about getting an appointment with an endocrinologist in Vancouver, Canada regarding HGH therapy to increase height?

Would it help ?: Before you invest time & effort I would have your local doc do a bone maturity study (bone age). A single x-ray of your wrist/hand can be examined for growth centers. If the study showed a "bone age" of about 15, your effort could be worthwhile. If it says you are mature (>18) the growth centers are closed & neither HGH or anything else will make you grow taller. ...Read more

I need to find a gp that is in the vancouver wa/portland or area that has gastric bypass patience.

Local hospital refer: Your best bet is to call a hospital in the area that you desire and then ask to talk to patient care representative. Then ask for names of physicians on staff who have "privileges" for what you need — in your instance, someone who does gastric bypass. They cn give you names in referral and that will give you a start to work from. Make a list of qualities you desire in your doctor, then go at it! ...Read more

What is the ?: I don't know what information you are looking for. The best evidence is that most people need at least 2 years of treatment before considering starting a gradual dose reduction, with high rates of relapse to street drug use in people who have been on for significantly less time (6 months or fewer). Some people manage well with drug-free treatment, but it's only about 15% of the total. ...Read more
