Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum


mental and physical defects that can occur in the fetus when a woman drinks or consumes alcohol during pregnancy. The timing as well as frequency of alcohol consumption during pregnancy are major risk factors of a child developing defects . , there are no well established guidelines for safe levels of alcohol during pregnancy. So stop it as early as possible

My dad has Crohn s Disease and early signs of non-alcoholic cirrhosis. He just got a CT scan and was told he has fluid around his stomach as well as thickening of the stomach wall and thickening of the small intestine wall. He has a gastero-ocposy on Monday to go down his throat to check things out. We are wondering what this could mean, what could be the cause and what is the treatment. My dad is here with me. Thank you so much for your opinion. It is much appreciated.
