Brief Answer:
Please don't worry there is no risk for HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Based on your history, having protected sexual intercourse , you shouldn't worry because there is no risk for HIV.
Having swollen lymphnode could be caused from other reasons. Please could you explain me if you have other symptoms ?
During this time I suggest to meet a doctor and to do a physical examination, ultrasound of neck, full blood count, Protein C reactive.

I hope my answer helps you.

Yes, you can take it.

Hello,
Thank you writing back.

You shoyld know that for tonsillitis/ faringitis the recommandations are: penicilin 250 mg orally 4 times a day or 500 mg orally twice a day for 10 days.
But, in your case the doctor has prescribe this dosage because of the moderate growth of strep.
Yes ,I think you can take it 4 times a day after speaking with your doctor.
I suggest that you should exclude a mononucleosis as well.

I hope my answer helps you.

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2



What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
