I am concerned about my five year old who is almost 50 pounds and he s almost 4 feet tall. We found out that my son s nails have become brittle and have been peeling off. We looked at his vitamin ingredients and I am stunned to find that his vitamin has NO iron in it at all. Would this be a cause of his brittle, peeling nails? He did have iron deficiency when he was younger as well.

I am 39 years old, 1.7m tall, and 86kg weight. I have had chicken pox in year 2000 and genital herpes 2003.

Presently, I always have gas in my system whenever I eat foods like fish, meat, beans, egg, etc. I have recurring constipation and diarrhea associated with stomach pains, and always feel bloated. I have difficulty in passing out faeces; practically have to force it out. Sometimes it comes out with patches of blood and a horrible rotten smell. I feel my digestive system is not functioning well. also I do not feel that my urine is emptied, some drops come out after I have finished. My lower abdomen around waist region is always tight. Various medics have advised that I take high fiber foods and drink lots of water. I do these, but I think my digestive system need to be properly looked into. Blood sugar averaged for last 3 months at 5.8mmol
