well i dont have any experience with smoking ingeneral, but i'd say just stop. throw out all your cigarettes. you're gonna get really pissed off and want to smoke again, but it'll be worth it. or you could try the patch or gum. i'm only fifteen, so i dont really know how to help, but my dad smokes, and i know i'd give anything for him to stop.

Often lately, I've been rather light-headed and drained of energy after eating lunch (when I mostly notice it) right about 1 - 2 hours after eating. I'm currently overweight and concerned about blood sugar levels, and diabetes but, that all checked out okay on my last fasting lab 3 months ago. What could be the cause??

I am 50 years old and about to be taken off of my birth control pill that Iv'e been taking for desmynorhea. I am also type 1 diabetic and have managed it well. It works well with the ortha Novum 1/1/1 28 day birth control pill. My doctor wants to take me off because I'm 50. I do not want to because it works so well and has for many years. If I'm taken off I know my hormone levels will crash and my diabetes management will suffer. (Doctors tell me they are not related but I know They are related because I've lived it and learned to make the adjustments during my cycle for 35 years). If I'm taken off the BC pill, what is my best option to treat desmynorrhea and to keep the hormone levels at a healthy and balanced level at my age?

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
