Question: ​​
Hi

I'm mailing regarding a few questions I wanted to get sorted out concerning pregnancy. I'm of 26 years and I had my last period on XXXXXXX 14th of this year. I had a little bit of bleeding (4-5 drops) in dark brown color on the 11th and 12th of July. Thereafter I did an HPT and found that it was positive..with a weak positive line.

After that I had bleeding on the morning of the 15th, like 3-4 drops with dark blood color but no clotting. I consulted a doctor and she asked me to take bed rest for another 15 days and gave me tablets - progesterone soft gelatin capsules, 2 times a day.. Also, I did not have severe cramps or stomach pain..

My question to you is regarding the chances it has on miscarriage and if there are any other risks involved.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. Faint line indicates pregnancy.

2. The possibility of miscarriage cannot be ruled out.

3. I suggest you get serum beta hCG blood test done to confirm pregnancy.

4. This not only confirms pregnancy but to some extent corresponds to period of pregnancy date.

5. This value doubles every 48 hours. Thereby confirming continuation of pregnancy after 48 hours.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Regards

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.
