Can I take a regular woman's vitamin like vita-vim for women and a folic acid supplement of 1000mcg while pregnant instead of a prenatal vitamin?

Can I take a regular woman's vitamin like vita-vim for women and a folic acid supplement of 1000mcg while pregnant instead of a prenatal vitamin?

Prenatal vitamins: It's probably ok to do this, but if the issue is the vitamin is too big, ask for a chewable. If it makes you nauseated ask for one that has something in it to help with the nausea or take it at night. In addition, talk to your OB about your need of an essential fatty acid called dha, which is good for fetal brain and eye development. ...Read more

Can raw green veg cause excess toxins in the body, is this true?

Can raw green veg cause excess toxins in the body, is this true?

No: That's goofy stuff. Ignore whoever told this to you -- in fact, it's best to disregard anybody who talks to you about "build-up of toxins", period. They're trying to sell you either a silly diet or an unhealty "purge". There's really no such thing, and your body cleans itself. If you're interested in pop claims and healthy eating, get with an evidence-based holist in your community. ...Read more

My son just got his 2 month vac., he's been sick since, could this b from them?

No: Unlikely. Some irritability, low grade fever, or mild pink rash is possible for a day or 2. Anything more severe should be seen by your doc. Some unusual reactions to shots occur, but are not common. Cold, flu, or “stomach bug“ symptoms are almost guaranteed to be from an unrelated infection. ...Read more

Fitness: Vegetarians and the fitness culture often run together. Hit the gym hard, including resistance training. You want lean muscle. Creatine and (if okay with your doctor) an electronic muscle stimulator can work wonders for you. Be sure you are getting enough protein; supplements are available, if whey's off-limits there's soy. Many women prefer a lean, sinewy man. Good luck. ...Read more

I have absolutely no sense of direction (traveling) all travel is via gps or repetitive routes. Is there a med cond that causes this?

Doubtful: Some people are either born with or without it. Although I am not aware of any studies, some men seem to be more prone. This explains why we ask their wives for directions and are reluctant to ask anybody for help. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My sibling has VCFS. Is it possible for me to be a "carrier" of microdeletion 22q11 and pass it on to my child if I don't have the deletion/syndrome?

My sibling has VCFS. Is it possible for me to be a "carrier" of microdeletion 22q11 and pass it on to my child if I don't have the deletion/syndrome?

Microdeletion 22q11: Hello Rosette. Inheritance of Microdeletion 22q11 is autosomal dominant & just one copy of the gene causes the actual syndrome. This prevents you being a "carrier" (silently carrying the gene but not the syndrome). Frequently, it is not inherited and a new gene mutation. For some, Microdeletion 22q11 can be subtle & diagnosed in adulthood so I recommend Genetic counseling due to a sib w/VCFS. ...Read more

I recently helped a friend dispose of old drywall — it took about 40 minutes — we loaded into a van and then unloaded it at the local tip. It kicked u?

No question here: Nice of you to help a friend. I am guessing you are concerned about health effects. Aside from muscle strain from pulling and lifting, there is the issue of old lead paint on the drywall as well as dust from the gypsum in the drywall. A short term exposure is unlikely to be a problem but it is always best to wear a protective mask when doing this type of work. ...Read more
