Two Weeks, Too Weak: So it went down. That's good. Make sure those numbers are accurate by not eating or drinking anything 1/2 hour before taking your temperature. This season, 2 weeks of a cold is not unusual. Nor is having a residual cough for another 2-3 weeks. The viruses are getting more and more vicious. And, did you get your flu shot this year? Taking plenty of fluids, a daily multivitamin , green tea and rest? ...Read more

I want to become a doctor. What is the best way to go about doing that after getting my general associate degree?

I want to become a doctor. What is the best way to go about doing that after getting my general associate degree?

Continue studies!: In addition to volunteering to "buff" your resume, you need a bs degree with a gpa of at least 3.7, all your pre-med requirements completed, good mcat scores, well-received interviews, and letters of recommendation. There are lots of 4.0 gpas, high mcats, and sterling letters of recommendation, so there has to be something that sets you aside from the rest. Sometimes takes 2 or 3 tries to get in. ...Read more

Dear doc im 31 year old guy and i have 3rd degree of haemorroids. Can it be cure with medicine as im afraid of surgery.

Maybe: You need to consult a GI doctor or surgeon to get meds to try.to reduce the size of the hemorrhoids. If there is little that can be done , then you can get these done as outpatient and have the hemorrhoids banded. This is much easier as this can be done with just mild sedation. Best wishes. ...Read more
