Question: I have Gilbert's syndrome and I just had a baby four months ago. Is it safe to give dtap if she inherited this from me? She cut her finger on kitchen knife while I was slicing apple( reached out and grabbed it) I was going to wait to get shots until I got Genetics test done but now I fear tetanus. Can her liver handle vaccines??

Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
XXXXXXX syndrome patients can be given all the vaccines just like in any other individual. It does not affect the drug pharmacokinetics either to any significant extent.
Just make sure that her cut gets a medical attention per se.
Dressing and antibiotics if deemed essential.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

Hi doctor. Thank you for taking my question. My friend is 72 years old and had the flu vaccine in the fall. The last 2 weeks he had stomach problems, vomiting and diarrhea about 5 times. Can it be the flu or something more serious? I am sorry but I don t see the answer to my question.

Greetings! Brother, I was bitten by dog on 14th January 2014 in the morning around 6. a.m. Around 6.45 a.m I went to clinic and they wiped it. Then around 10 a.m on the day I was given a tetanus injection and started taking antibiotic for a week. Evening around 5 p.m I was given a anti rabies vaccination. I was given anti rabies vaccination for 14 days consequatively around nipple and then after 10 days 1 injection then 10 days after 1 injection and after 10 days last injection. So total 17 injections around the nipple. That means, January - 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27,\ Feb 6, 16, 26 dates I was given a anti rabies vaccination. On 16th Feb. I had a food poison due to the juice (awakadu) which I was taken outside. Again I was given anti biotic. I completed it. After food poison I feel in my mouth I am getting saliva. Doctor checked my blood they told I have a 108 sugar and 225 is a colostratral. Yet dog is alive and owner of the dog says it is in a good condition. Can you please tell me if possible the reasons of saleva I am getting it. I am also not feeling hungry. If time permits kindly reply brother. With respects, moses
