Some Rx labels say "take with food" to avoid stomach upset. Always wondered how much food do they mean? A piece of fruit? A few crackers?

Some folks can take almost any medicine with an empty stomach and have no problem while others have very sensitive stomachs. Almost any med can cause nausea but some cause it much more frequently than others. For some people and meds a piece of fruit or a few crackers may be enough, for others it may be best after a full meal. Experiment! ...Read more

Does diluting juice help prevent baby bottle tooth decay? I understand that juice has sugar, and the sugar can cause cavities. I’ve read that diluting it with water makes it less likely your baby will get baby bottle tooth decay. I only give him juice a f
Replace don't dilute: The sugar will change the acid/base balance in his mouth while there & for about an hour after drinking the juice. The longer it's in his mouth, the more decay you will see. Consult with your dentist & pediatrician, and determine a way to give him food on intervals and something with no sugar (like water) the rest of the time. This can save you loads of time, $$ and pain. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Isit healthier to feed kids oatmeal everyday with guar gum or evaporated cane juice? Does all ecjuice contain sucralose or has to be listed ingredient
Oatmeal: Why put anything in the oatmeal? It is a great food by itself. Complex carbs, fiber, some protein. The guar just adds extra fiber, and the juice is a sweetener. If you need a sweetener for taste, that is your choice, and it should not matter whether it is fruit juice, sugar, honey, etc. I would avoid artificial sweeteners in kids. The calories from a little honey is minimal. ...Read more
Is diet soda still bad for tooth loss? I've switched from drinking regular soda to drinking sugar-free diet soda, and i hope that it will be better for my teeth. Will i still have to worry about tooth from diet soda?
Hello. : Hello. Carbonic acid creates the carbonation in soft drinks. Because it is an acid, it can damage the enamel of your teeth. Darker colored sodas tend to do more damage than lighter sodas. If you are a soda swisher (swish it through your teeth and around your mouth) that is really damaging to your teeth. Sipping soda through a straw or swishing water in your mouth after drinking soda can help to minimize problems. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can increasing the amount of sodas you drink (like coke) cause your stools to become very dark brown? Can it make them black? Have drank less water.
Black stools: Drinking lots of soda will not change either stool or urine color. Dark urine color is worrisome for hepatitis while dark stool is worrisome for blood. Iron & bismuth can also darken stool. If you've noted this, go see your Family Doc or ER as soon as possible (immediately if weak, woozy, lightheaded, etc). ...Read more
On a diet with lots of veg like carrots, lettuce, snap peas, and a bit of corn, with 2 tbsp of hummus do you think this will help me lose weight?
Yes but add protein: Eating mostly veggies is a great way to lost weight but it's important to get adequate protein. 2 tbsp of hummus has no more than 2 grams of protein. Most people need 30-50 grams of protein a day. Consider other beans/nuts/seeds, much more hummus or adding a protein powder such as hemp seed, rice, pea or whey protein powder.
