Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.
It may be worthwhile getting a check up done again to evaluate your symptoms.
It is possible that you have anxiety and would respond to relaxation and music.
For frequent migraine attacks, there are good medications available, which would reduce the severity...

Fever for 4+ days and ketones in urine with 7 year old My 7 year old son had been running a fever for 4 days now (101-103). No upper respiratory symptoms and strep had been ruled out by his pediatrician . Urinalysis shows elevated ketones. Tomorrow he will get a blood test . He s a very active child (competitive gymnast & martial arts) and a fairly healthy eater. What worries me is that diabetes runs dominantly in my husband s paternal side. Should I worry?

doctor1 MD

Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Having heavy bleeding during periods with bleeding after sex and after a cervical smear shows that your dosage of warfarin needs to be reduced. The warfarin that you are taking has caused the excessive bleeding and now you need to have your coagulation profile,...

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.

Coumadin is an oral anticoagulant and increases your chances of bleeding.

If you want to have an abortion you must go to an expert gynaecologist who will first check your coagulation profile and accordingly might stop warfarin for one week and then go for abortion...

The specific question that I want answered by a doctor is this: Is hair loss a side effect of taking the medication Colchicine. I have not yet begun taking this medication but it has been prescribed by my urologist to help treat Peyronie's disease. I am to take two 0.6 mg. tablets a day or a total of 1.2 mg. a day of Colchicine. Is there anything in the medical literature that would make hair loss even a remote side effect from taking 1.2 mg. of Colchicine a day? I have had hair loss problems recently and I do not want to add to it by taking a medication that has hair loss as a side effect. Please do not tell me what Colchicine is prescribed for or what it does. I am only interested in you telling me whether hair loss has been reported as a side effect from taking a dosage of 1.2 mg. a day.

doctor1 MD

Hello and thanks for the query.

Your question is very clear and my answer will be as well. "Colchicine will not cause or exacerbate hair loss at all". There is no mechanism by which this medication would be even remotely associated with hair loss. It has not been reported in the literature as...

Hello, I wish to start taking coconut oil but I am concerned whether it will be ok as I also take warfarin.

doctor1 MD

Hi XXXXXXX

Sudden changes in diet can potentially affect anti-coagulation control in a patient taking warfarin. Such interactions may lead to an increase in the blood INR (international normalized ratio), putting the patient at a risk of developing a bleeding event.

There are reports about...

Hello. "Brief Hisotry"...4 weeks ago, I went to an internist who specializes in bariatrics to help me with weight loss. He put me on a high protein very low carb diet along with supplements, through which he determined which ones through extensive blood work. He gave me DHEA, Vitamin D, Nature-throid, CoQ10, Acetyl L-Carnitine (brand name NutriLean with Forslean...which is coleus forskolin) and I take 1/2 of a 37.5 mg, tablet of phentermine to control my appetite. I also have Crohns Disease for which I take Lialda and I get Remicade every 7 weeks.
My stomach has been hurting all week. This morning while eliminating , in the form of diarrhea, I noticed something pinkish in color (like the color of a pencil eraser) that appears to be rubbery, like a piece of latex balloon...with small bumps. I am very scared and I have every intention of calling my gastroentorologist as soon as they open however that won't be for another 2 hours I am very anxious to know what this could possibly be... I am hoping to get some suggestions Also, should I save it and bring it in to my doctor?
I have been asked to provide more details however i am not sure what they are looking for. All I can say is that the internist has eliminated foods and protein bars containing sugar alcohols and has also eliminated a pro-bitoic that he gace to me called Ther-biotic.

doctor1 MD

Hi XXXXXXX ,

Thanks for your query.

After analysing your symptoms, I can think of the following possibilities :

1. An exacerbation of the Crohn's disease.

2. An side-effect to the Drug Lialda.


Both can present with the severe Abdominal pain, diarrhea with pinkish rubbery products .

It would be...

The dose of BENADRYL you have mentioned to have taken is 500 mg at once.The maximum adult dosage is 300 mg/day. This is an over dose of the drug and it is expected to cause side effects .

I suggest you see a doctor at the earliest and get yourself examined.

Hello Dr. Narasi, My 12 year old daughter suffers from Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and Ulcerative Colitis . She was diagnosed when she was 3. She also developed Portal Hypertension in 2007 which resulted in a splenetic renal shunt forming in the fall of 2007. The portal hypertension decreased at that time. This fall the portal hypertension returned dramatically. She has just been listed for transplant 2 weeks ago. The portal hypertension is now causing portal hypertensive gastropathy. Last Wednesday at 4 in the morning she started throwing up blood. We took her to the er. Her GI did a ct scan , blood work, and scoped her. That is when we discovered the gastropathy. She is currently suffering horribly from the gastropathy. she is on numerous medications including: protonix , sucrafate, lialda, prednisone , poly-iron, mephyton, ursodiol, aquadeks, and refampin. Currently, we are trying to treat the gastropathy with and extra dose of protonix, an extra dose of the sucrafate, and hydrocodone. This is not working. She is currently doubled over in pain crying her eyes out. She is nearly hysterical. I ve called the transplant team and her GI, but they have not called back. I need help in knowing what else I can do to help her not hurt. Could increasing her prednisone help to decrease the pressure, inflammation, and pain she is experiencing? I ask this because in the past 5 years I believe that she has suffered from this gastropathy many times though undiagnosed. And during those times, we were required to increase her prednisone. Each time the gastropathy pain left her within hours of her increased dose. When we did not increase the prednisone the pain persisted until we did increase the prednisone although it did take longer for the prednisone to relieve the pain, usually 5 days. Have you ever heard of prednisone helping gastritis/gastropathy? Or do you have any suggestions? And at what point do I need to take her to the hospital. Just so you know. We ve been dealing with this for 10 years now. I am not an over reactive parent, and Bethany is a very tough girl. She doesn t make a fuss even if she feels awful. So, when I say that she is suffering, I truly mean it. She is in horrible pain. Thank you for your help! Taylor K.

Hi, for the last 3 or 4 days i have been very gassy with sharp abdominal pains below my belly button and on both sides. But the thing that is really bothering me is when i have a bowel movement , it is still gassy but my stool is the consistency of mud, thick nasty mud. Now, i have been on oxycodone for back pain and i also take pravastatin,metropalol and Bentyl . My doctor just added Zyrtec for an earache And he also added Amitriptyline to help me sleep at nite.
