Prieš 2 mėnesius

We’ve got another juicy episode of responding to your medical comments! Today we talk about how to get taller or maximize your height, whether you should come out with your sexuality to your doctor, what role the frequency of your drinking plays into your ability to get drunk, the truth about chicken pox, cracking your knuckles/neck/back, elder care, radiology, draining your lungs, allergies, and so much more. Got a question you’d like me to answer? Drop it down below and I’ll try to get to it in my next Responding To Comments videos!

The Truth About Allergies and Food Sensitivity Tests:

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

how to gain weight (in a healthy way)? I'm 13 and 38,5kg which is very small :p
grub Prieš 12 dienų
It's important to know that you should never change yourself for the pleasure of others. Healthy weight gain and loss comes from wanting to do it for yourself and nobody else. If you wanna gain weight because other people are making you feel bad about your size, you should reavaluate that choice, for your own physical and mental wellbeing. I promise you. If you wanna gain weight for health reasons, you notice that your current size is affecting your body and such in a negative way, I suggest you tell your parents about it and talk to them about seeing a nutritionist. The basics of gaining weight is just eating healthy food in bigger portion sizes and avoiding any sports or exercises that are very energy intensive (exercise is still good for you so don't avoid it completely)

You are born with about 100,000 scalp hair follicles to start with, but it varies with natural hair color. Blondes have an average of 150,000 hairs, the average redhead has 90,000. Those with black or brown hair average 110,000 to 100,000 hairs. and you lose up to 100 hair strands a day

I have a question...and a story. I got my braces when I was 16, kinda late i know, I first got my top row done and then my bottom ones a bit later but when I got my bottom ones the pain was really intense. I couldn't eat, bearly slept and I only had liquids for a while. But at this time my mom had me take a bunch of painkillers for a week to try and help with the pain, and it did (i think). I dont remember that week. I know I missed out on this week becuse a teacher came up to me and told me I had gotten a A on my math test (I am the worst at math). I dont remember taking a test at all. My friends also said a was all over the place that week and running our rhe halls and shouting and singing al lthe time. Im wondering, was I high on painkillers? I've discovered that painkillers work less on me now and need to take more then my recommended dose so I think that week might have caused some damage Please dr.Mike im really curious

OBJECTION! Sometimes a patient does not necessarily need a consultation based on their sexual preference your patient could be missing a limb, getting treated for an illness unrelated to sexual relations or need general medical advice. To be fair, only a doctor can assess whether use of this question is appropriate however, this is not a required step to receive treatment.

the 4 min question: to reduce muscle spasms you can increase your consumption of calcium just a little bit not a lot because any slightly increase or decrease of the specific amount of calcium in the blood can cause major problems. i hope that is helpful.

Another thing is height is not solely based on sleep, it's also dependent on your diet, physical activity, and genetics. And assuming you have already gone through puperty, growing any taller is extremely unlikely.

your response to the water in the lungs comment made me laugh, because as a child i had this happen to me where i stepped too deep in our pool, went face down, and my mum just GRABBED ME and tipped me upside down, a bunch of water rushed out, and she put me across her lap to pat my back as i coughed and started crying my eyes out. what a funny life saver !!

So question: With Family History becoming more and more important for medical treatment should the State be required to release an Adopted Child's biological Records still protected by HIPPA? Followup question how do you navigate around what is becoming such an important part of medical treatment where the wrong answers can become harmful to your patient? Imagine for 15 years believing Steve and Marge are your parents and their parents are your grandparents only to have medical treatment fail because that life was a biological lie. Imagine things like Fragile X spreading because you didn't know you are a carrier? How does a patient and doctor overcome these disabilities in the record? I know this is a hard topic but can you briefly touch on Genetics and Family Medicine.

Teaching the elderly how to use technology like cell phones is a great start, but medical alert devices very much have their place. Especially the new ones that have fall detection. About a decade ago my mother, who knew very well how to use her cell phone, had a fall while getting out of bed. The problem was her phone was on her bedside table, just out of reach. I normally called her every two or three days at that point, and we had just gotten off the phone. Thanks to the metastatic breast cancer she had that had gone into her bones, and completely destroyed several of, she couldn't possibly stand without assistance. She ended up laying on the floor for three days before Dave, the maintenance manager for the apartment complex she lived in, stopped by to check on her and see if she needed anything, like he did every few days. That visit from Dave saved her life.
