Is there any way to stop the blood clotgs during your period? I have a heavy flow and the blood cloths are the size of a one cent to a five cent coin

Is there any way to stop the blood clotgs during your period? I have a heavy flow and the blood cloths are the size of a one cent to a five cent coin

Common, normal: Blood passing from uterus during menstrual flow often collects in the vaginal vault and "clot-up" to various sizes depending the amount of blood and duration. Also, the longer the blood stays there, the darker it will get. If you feel unease about the clots, use of tampon may reduce this--blood is absorbed into tampon and thus u won't see large clots. This is quite common--not abnormal. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the minimum amount of hairs we should shed a day? 15-20?

What is the minimum amount of hairs we should shed a day? 15-20?

It is estimated: that it is normal to shed 50 to 100, even 150 hairs per day. I doubt anybody knows a minimum number ... I can't think why anybody would notice that or try to count how many hairs they were losing if they were not concerned about losing too many. Definitely something I don't think you need to worry about. Stay well:) ...Read more

How big of a help is the addition of protein to a higher carb meal in terms of keeping blood sugar level lower (for one meal/event, not long term)?

How big of a help is the addition of protein to a higher carb meal in terms of keeping blood sugar level lower (for one meal/event, not long term)?

Very helpful: The glycemic index measures how much a food raises blood sugar compared to eating sugar. But the glycemic indexes of a meal are the average, so if you eat 8 ounces of baked potato with a glycemic index of 90 and also have 8 ounces of chicken or fish, with a glycemic index close to zero, the average for that combo is 45. Protein has a strong effect in modifying the rise in blood sugar from carbs. ...Read more
