My stool is yellow why is that and constipated I have a really bad diet and can it be from sugar and not eating veggies?

Vegetables: Eating more fruits and vegetables can help with your constipation cause they contain fiber. Having processed sugar and flour in your diet and other processed foods have little to no fiber and contribute to constipation. Try to eat half your plate as vegetables. Beans are also a good source of fiber and try to have about a gallon of water a day- to make sure the fiber and fluids make a soft stool. ...Read more

My baby is 2 weeks and I m breastfeeding. He is doing well but does a lot of grunting. Should I be concerned?

Babies own us: Newborns have no prior training on how to fit into a polite society.They are full of grunts, squeaks, burps and other noises that have no significance.Grunting does not mean they are constipated, and some actually use tightening their breathing muscle to help digestion (grunts/farts and hard tummy wall).Enjoy the symphony, some day you will wish you could go back in time and re-live it. ...Read more

I : I would urge you to see a doctor and be evaluated for these symptoms. Important questions would be, do you have prior medical conditions or prior surgeries, and do you have a past family history of any abdominal problems. If you are concerned about pregnancy despite the prior testing, your physician should re-test you. Whenever you can't keep any food down you must be seen by a physician for evaluation. ...Read more

My daughter is 8years old.her eating habits andpassing stool habits are not good.because she does not eat properly so she always have pains in head.

My daughter is 8years old.her eating habits andpassing stool habits are not good.because she does not eat properly so she always have pains in head.

Children's choices: At 8 yrs of age, what she eats is going to depend on what's available at home. If she makes "unhealthy" choices then the solution? Don't make them available. Don't buy foods you don't want her eating. Make fresh fruits and veggies available. If she's picky - find the things that she likes that are still good for her. Encourage her to try new things. Eat healthy yourself - be an example. ...Read more

I have been biting my cheeks when eating, and i donottalk when eating and im not nervous , what can be the other reasons for this?

Vicious cycle: Cheek biting is usually the result of a nervous habit. Once you bite your cheeks, they become inflamed and makes it more likely for you to bite them again as they are now closer to your teeth. Try to be conscious of your cheek biting and eat slowly. With some effort, it should resolve on its own. See your dentist for an evaluation and make an effort to reduce your stress. ...Read more

My child is exclusively breast fed and he isn't gaining weight what are some good foods my wife can eat to help?

Healthy intake: Is important as well as adequate fluid intake and sleep. I would want to make sure that she is making enough milk. It may help to quantify her supply with some pumping. Trying a hypoallergenic formula for a couple of days may define his needs. Is he fussy? If that is the case i would eliminate cow's milk and dairy for 3 days to see if that helps. If no better, eliminate gluten to see if improved. ...Read more
