I have an avm on my rt butt cheeck it is also wrapped around colon and uterus will this keep me from ever having children?

I have an avm on my rt butt cheeck it is also wrapped around colon and uterus will this keep me from ever having children?

Uncertain: Without more information, it is not possible to say whether carrying a pregnancy to term is reasonable or not. Also, it may be possible to be pregnant but not to give birth vaginally. Your avm sounds fairly extensive, and the doctors who defined the extent of the avm are better able to answer that question. Giving birth yourself is only one way of being a parent. I wish you well ...Read more

I have gout, can I keep it wrapped as its fairly chilly?

Hot and Cold: Gout usually presents with 'burning/hot' and swelling (at least during an attack). If your immediate gout site is 'fairly chilly, ' this is not related to the gout. Consider consulting with your family doctor or podiatrist and have your pulses evaluated. In the meantime, I see no problem with keeping is wrapped for warmth, but comprising the site is not advised. ...Read more

I have eaten a small amount of aluminum accidentally (from food wrapping). What will happen to me?

I have eaten a small amount of aluminum accidentally (from food wrapping). What will happen to me?

No worries: The small amount you consumed shouldn't be a problem. Aluminum is one of the most plentiful elements that we are exposed to. It is toxic so our bodies have mechanisms to clear it. It isn't a good idea to expose yourself to more than necessary and especially don't cook in aluminum pans or use foil on acidic foods. One way to remove aluminum out of the body is to consume silicon rich water. ...Read more

Does body wrapping help lose weight?

No not really: You may loose water weight but no real change will take place in your actual body mass. To loose weight you must expend more energy than you take-in through your diet.

At the same time exercise (walk, run, bike, swim). ...Read more

Does wrapping an ACE bandage or Saran wrap around your waist really work?

Does wrapping an ACE bandage or Saran wrap around your waist really work?

Not Really....: Wrapping yourself in Saran wrap isn't the best ideal to lose weight. The occlusion of the skin increases temperature, causes more sweating and forces you to lose water weight. The problem is you have to replace the fluids from the sweating, so it has a 0 net effect. You are better off at the gym exercising at your elevated zone for 30+ minutes and watching your diet. ...Read more

Is it dangerous if the baby comes out with the cord wrapped around her neck?

Is it dangerous if the baby comes out with the cord wrapped around her neck?

Could be: I've had newborns with as many as 5 neck loops or up to 3 true knots in the umbilical cord all grow up & do fine. In both cases monitoring during labor produced heart rate changes that led to a cesarean delivery. Kids without stress patterns during labor have a loose loop & are unlikely to have problems. Sometimes the wrap prevents baby from delivering normally, holding them back like a yoyo. ...Read more
