Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.

Loperamide is not a drug that I would give to my infants.
It could cause more harm.

Urine trace protein is normal. Nothing to worry about that.
Yes you can give him enterogermina. No harm with that.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi Dr. Rynne, I have chills, fatigue, stomach discomfort, night sweats, frequent night urination. I ve been tired most days of the week and sometimes unable to focus at work. I just wanted to lie down, rest and sleep. It comes and go throughout the day. I was diagnosed with chlamydia back in March and with adenocarcinoma in situ. I had a LEEP procedure to take out the abnormal celss. The sample had clear margin and doctor declared I don t have cancer. I am told to return every 3-4 months for close monitoring. Since these issues happenned, I have had stomach discomfort, fatigue and dizziness. In my recent visit to my primary care doctor, she prescribed Probiotics to balance my digestive system because she said the antibiotics I took to treat Chlymidia may have taken out the bad and also the good bacteria. I had it for 14 days and during that period I had extreme fatigure, headache, night sweats and chills. I couldn t bear it so I stopped it after 14 days. After stopping the medication, I continue having these sypmtoms although not extrememly severe like before but it is bad. I had to take off work for a few days. I am due to return to the doctor next week so she could run my hormone levels. I feel like the stomach discomfort is creating these problems but I don t know for sure. Please help, your advice is greatly appreciated. Tracy Nguyen

Hi, I had been diagnosed with ibs over two years ago, and my stomach would hurt usually four times a week and I went through many weight changes. I lost a lot of weight at first then gradually put it back on and then lost it again, but it was never on purpose. And no this past summer I began taking probiotics and they helped with bowel movements and pain but my stomach began getting very bloated. It would not go away at all and it became very bad after I ate or drank anything. I was late on my period for about four months. And the bloating hasn t gone away at all, I stopped taking the probiotic about a week after starting cause I though it had something to do with it but I am still bloated. I literally can t eat anything because of this bloating, I have lost a lot of weight but my stomach just keeps getting bigger. It has been about five months now and there has been no change. At first I thought It was since I was constipated that I was bloated but I began taking miralax and I have gone to the restroom everyday but there has been no change in my stomach at all, could you please tell me whats going on?

Hi, I'm a female 40 yrs old. Always had a problems with constipation. I never usually have the urge to go unless its my day off and I am able to sit with my coffee in the morning to give it time to work. Other than that, I have a movement about 2 times per week. Worried as I was, I went to the Dr. a few years ago in which I had a colonoscopy which turned out being IBS. I've cut out grains, most carbs, beans, not much dairy and still the same problem. I cant see to lose any weight, I eat VERY healthy and seems like I get bigger in the mid section. Recently I tried adding Kefir yogurt to my diet, eating a serving a day of fermented foods, and taking a 15 billion probiotics about 2 weeks ago. I am now going every morning but my stool is a softer, pencil thin, yellowish brown in color stool. Do you know why this could be? Should I be worried about the pencil thin shape?? I have no gas, bloating, pain..nothing. I actually feel great!! ?????Please help with advice

I have had discomfort in my lower left abdominal quadrant for some time. It is not really painful but more like discomfort. At most it reaches, maybe, a two on a pain scale . It sort of feels like a pressure. Probiotics were recommended. Since I drank a few Kefirs, things seem better. However, after the first Kefir I had a small amount of green tinged mucus bm (mostly mucus, very little bm)...I still think I feel a little better...but what does the mucus mean?
