What are the reasons why I get infections in my vaginal area so easily? A doctor tld my husband he has too much keratin in his sperm. Is that true?

Depends: Never heard the keratin response. You first need to determine what type of infection--this can be done by your health care provider. If yeast, is he circumcised? If BV (very common) talk about prevention techniques. If sexually transmitted disease--frank discussion with your partner and treatment of all partners.

How high the keratin has to be to need dialysis?

How high the keratin has to be to need dialysis?

Kidney function: Creatinine, not keratin, is a substance excreted by the kidney. High levels in blood may indicate decreased kidney function. Usually creatinine level is plugged in a formula, to calculate the kidney function. If the kidney function is less than 10-25%, usually dialysis is planned. If the creatinine rises from 0. 8 to 1.6, it means 50% decline in kidney function.

Biotin shampoo and conditioner vs Keratin shampoo and conditioner. Which would be more effective in growth, repair and/or nourishment?

Biotin shampoo and conditioner vs Keratin shampoo and conditioner. Which would be more effective in growth, repair and/or nourishment?

Hair repair: Keratin shampoo/conditioner coats the hair shaft with Keratin (protein), protecting the hair shaft. Biotin shampoo /conditioner wouldn't be effective, because the hair shaft can't use it. Biotin is a vitamin that helps in the maintaining strong hair and nails, but it must be taken orally to be effective.

Can I take 10, 000mcg of biotin with 100mg of keratin while nursing a 9 month old?

Can I take 10, 000mcg of biotin with 100mg of keratin while nursing a 9 month old?

Excessive amount: The recommended daily intake of biotin while breastfeeding is 30 mcg per day. 10, 000 mcg is an excessive amount. Taking keratin by mouth also unlikely to improve your hair as it will be degraded in the gut. Avoid taking either biotin or keratin in excessive amounts as much will end up in your urine or stool.
