He's healthy: As mentioned, creatinine is a substance the kidneys are supposed to filter, it's a byproduct and should be very low in the blood stream. Normal values are generally based on an average for what adults would have, and children's kidneys are healthy and much more efficient. For lab tests in children, ignore the "normals" and ask your pediatrician for an interpretation. ...Read more

Had tapeworm on brain when i was 12 years old and now 30 and can't memorize things specially math is it a side effect from what i had d a child?

Possibly: If you had neuro-cysticercosis (the larvae of tapeworm that settles in the brain) and you were not treated, that can cause damage to the brain. It depends on how severe the infestation was, whether you were treated or not and what part of the brain is affected. This condition can also cause a form of epilepsy that can also affect memory. A ct scan of the brain can help answer these questions. ...Read more

My 12 year old is in severe pain with a dislocated shoulder. What is the best way to treat a dislocated shoulder?

This depends: I am assuming that the shoulder has been put back in. If the shoulder has been put back in, a short period of rest in a sling followed by gentle attempts to regain range of motion will allow early pain relief. Then pt can begin. If the shoulder has not been put back in, go to a doctor now. ...Read more

I've been taking advicor for five years and now my doctor is switching me to zocor (simvastatin).  How long does the niacin stay in your body..  Flushing?

Good question: I researched your question: the half life of extended release Niacin in Advicor (lovastatin and niacin) is very variable, & depends on gender, dose, & individual characteristics. It peaks 5 hours after a single dose. Following years of treatment, it's probably safe to assume that it will take days (3-5) to wear off completely. Possibly longer depending on dose. ...Read more
