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. However, you can optimize what they were meant to accomplish by eating well, with a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, and proper levels of proteins and building blocks. ...Read more

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?

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?

Distal tubing: There are several methods used including endoscopic placement with only one or two small incisions. I like to make a small incision in the abdomen which is opened to the peritoneum. I then place a shunt passer in the peritoneum and over the liver into the subcutaneous (fat) space and pass it up into the neck to join the proximal shunt catheter. ...Read more

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

I was taking eltoxin 100mcg , i got my throid checked it came 0.16 how much optimum dose should i take?3different doctors prescribed different dose

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

Simpleast way to increase my body...My age is 16+ and wan to increase my body and I have enough height so can u tell me easy yet effective way...?

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

What should I do if i think i'm pregnant? I'm 16 and mum said she would kick me out if she ever found out i was pregnant.

1st be sure: Whether you are pregnant or not. Get a home pregnancy test and check. If you are pregnant you will need help and guidance, hopefully from your parents. Your mom may have been trying to make you be more careful but may support you if you are pregnant. You will need to decide whether you are ready to have the baby, give the baby up for adoption or have an abortion. Try talking to your mom. ...Read more

How can I gain weight safely? I am trying to gain weight and have been struggling a lot!
i am 16, five foot nine, and weigh a measly 110lbs.
I would like to know if it is safe for me to drink 2 cups of heavy cream every day, to gain an extra 1600 calories

Drinking : Drinking heavy cream is probably not a good idea due to the high sugar content. The best way to go is to increase the protein in your diet (i.E protein shakes between meals). Also weight training is a great way to gain weight through increasing your muscle mass. A good idea for you would be to see a certified nutritionist and a private trainer for help with a weight training routine. Best of luck. ...Read more

How dangerous is it for a 16 year old to have a child?

How dangerous is it for a 16 year old to have a child?

Not very: A 16 year old who is a full adult size, and otherwise healthy, with a healthy body weight, is not in much danger to have a baby physically. Emotionally, however, that may be a different story. It is difficult to raise a child as a 30 year old let alone at 16 years old. With a good support system, however, anything is possible. ...Read more
