Proper nutrition: There is truthfully no real way to increase your height, as it 's genetically predetermined. If your genes meant you to be tall you will be.

Exactly how common is vp shunt independence? Will young people eventually outgrow the need for one as they grow older?

Exactly how common is vp shunt independence? Will young people eventually outgrow the need for one as they grow older?

Shunt indepedence: A common asked question but a commonly unknown answer. Very few patients with shunts truly become independent, in my own experience it is probably only about 5%. There is a surgery, known as a iiird ventriculostomy where a hole can be made at the base of the brain to bypass the fluid obstruction - if successful the shunt can be removed but not all patients fulfill the criteria for this operation. ...Read more

How is the distal tube of vp shunt placed in the abdominal cavity? What is the incision for in the process? Describe the procedure please?

What medication do you usually prescribe for periodontitis disease? Can antiseptic mouthwash help? I am 16 and I am worried that my teeth will fall out if i can't visit a dentist.

See a dentist: I know you say you can't see a dentist but you must. $ can be issue but it will cost more in long run to not get it done now. You must clean better than normal, rinses may help but will not cure your probs. A dental cleaning and continual care is your only definitive treatment. ...Read more

Slightly less: It would be helpful to have a free T4 level. The 0.16 is likely a TSH level and indicates that you need slightly less thyroid hormone. The next dose to try is 88 mcg. You should be sure to take the medication on an empty stomach and wait at least 40 minutes before eating. Do not take any supplements at the same time. ...Read more

Food and exercise: It sounds like you want to gain weight. At 16 this is hard to do because you are gaining height quickly. But to increase weight you need to eat more. To not put on fat you need to exercise, such as weights or other resistance exercise (like bowflex or universal machines vs. Free weights). ...Read more
