HIV: Hiv will not be transmitted in this manner unless you are an infant drinking HIV carrying breast milk from the mother. Glad to hear you have no unprotected sex. That and needle sharing are the major risks. ...Read more

Will my hoarseness improve if I restrict intake of cold drinks and cold foods?

No: Actually you should do the opposite and drink more liquids to ensure good hydration. Some people feel cold is better and others like hot- so pick whichever makes your throat feel better. A tbsp of honey in warm water can also soothe a sore throat and help with hoarseness. Hoarseness is caused by infection or overuse of your vocal cords. ...Read more

POOR WEIGHT GAIN:: Average 5 year old weighs 18 kg or 40 pounds. He should eat a balanced diet in moderate amount comprising of vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, egg, milk, etc., and 6-8 glasses of water. Need to eat 6 times/day: breakfast, lunch, diner and 3 snacks in between. I don't understand why apple juice has become important here. Let him eat combination of fruits in moderate amount, more protein, no juice. ...Read more

Probably not: The best predictor is what happened before. You can always seek medical help if you experience withdrawal. Drinking that much is harmful, probably why you are thinking of quitting. Go ahead and quit. ...Read more

Weak immune system. Have meds that say watch sun intake. I was in the sun for 4 hrs sharing drink with a friend. I've had a cold 4 days nothing helps?

Weak immune system.  Have meds that say watch sun intake. I was in the sun for 4 hrs sharing drink with a friend. I've had a cold 4 days nothing helps?

A cold is vague: I think it is unfair to assume yourself having a weak immune system without being diagnosed by a doctor or an immunologist to quantify which immune system is weak. A lot of things can make you feel sick including staying out in the sun for several hours. If your symptoms does not improve, you deserve a doctor's visit. ...Read more

From a health and weight loss perspective, is it adviceable to drink water before a meal to reduce hunger (food intake). If yes, how many glasses?

8-16 ounces: It is a good idea to hydrate yourself before meals--especially breakfast. Everything about digestion requires water: saliva, mucus, stomach acid, intestinal secretions, kidney function. It may help to fill your stomach so you are satisfied with less food, but mainly it satisfies the craving for water itself which many people misidentify as hunger. 8-16 ounces at a time is plenty. ...Read more
