Avatar f tn My 7 yr grandson has been diagnosed with ADD. He is taking Stratera. He has been for about 1yr. His dose is 25 mg a day. It helps with some things. His main problem is his mouth(back talking), irritates to point she cries his sister, just plain defies you some days, and cries at the drop of a hat(sometimes for no reason and others when not getting his way). His mom is almost to her breaking point with his behavior. They live with us. His mom and dad are divorced.
Avatar n tn Can anyone give me tips on a good diet plan or food to eat to lose fat and weight?
Avatar n tn It is possible that she has a maldigestion problem. I would add a good probiotic to her diet, such as I-Flora, or Culterelle, or another acidophilus product available from a good health food store, or your veterinarian. I would also add digestive enzymes, also available from a heath food store. Neither of these products is going to hurt her even if this problem is behavioral. I would also have her stool checked for parasites and giardia. Have her treated if parasites are found.
Avatar n tn Since she likes ice cream and milk, make milkshakes Milk and ice cream blended) for her and add fruit, such as banana or strawberry (if she accepts) as a banana shake or strawberry shake. If she has a few a day then she is getting fruit and protein. Suggest giving her a daily multi-vitamin due to her eating habits. Thank you for your question.
Avatar n tn Also everyone needs different things. Sex, age, and of course pregnancy have a huge effect on what you need in your diet. Also things like medical problems play a roll. My mom and I have very high cholesterol so we try to help keep it in check by adding fish oil on top of a daily vitamin. (We both still need our meds, but my nails have never looked prettier.) Fiber can be found in grains-whole wheat, oats, barley.
Avatar f tn My favorites on the diet were oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon, you can add non-iodized salt, too! Also, peel a potato and grate it, rinse the starch and fry it in a bit of olive oil with non-iodized salt and pepper, hash browns! The most important thing is NOTHING from the sea, no sea salt, most "natural products" contain sea salt. Limit meat portions, and make it only chicken...
Avatar f tn Is he drinking milk? That will give him protein and you can add ice cream to it as a milkshake (milk, fruit, and ice cream blended) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, fresh fruit, and frozen fruit) in place of milk so he is getting calories and protein to grow. At his age a child should be eating regular finger foods as you stated. He may need to learn how to chew and swallow food. Some children just do not know how to do it and need to be taught.
Avatar n tn I am very much worried about his this diet .also wanted to add milk in his diet. Pls guide me what should i do, i will be very greatful to you. Thanks.
Avatar m tn foods into your diet. My doctor said I can do it by the end of this month, but I am a bit nervous because I don't know how to go about doing this. I know I'm not supposed to bring them all back at once but do I just eat a trigger food then wait a few days? I don't get it. I am concerned that if I even eat one trigger food, my esophagus will swell up again. Has anybody started incorporating trigger foods into your diet? Also, I am concerned because I don't usually FEEL reflux.
Avatar n tn seasoned foods but a taste of Hungry Jack mashed potatoes did me in tonight for 2 1/2 hrs. Is that typical? Was it the salt content (I did not add), all I added was butter, was it that? I need help in determining which foods to choose and what ingredients to stay away from. I felt better after 2 doses of oxcar... so I had some coffee after not all this week. When I went off this evening I also had head pain for the 1st time. No coffee??
Avatar f tn I am a new mom, I delivered my baby 4 months ago, I want to go on a diet but I am afraid thst will affect my baby because I am breast feeding her
Avatar m tn He is unclear exactly what kind of a diet he should be on while taking the medication. Is he supposed to take 20 mg. of fat with all 3 medications or just with certain ones. And what type of breakfast do you recommend. He is under the impression that he needs to eat a full meal with every dose. Can someone enlighten us? Thanks so much.

Avatar m tn You must ● Eat a proper diabetic diet [low carbohydrate, no sugar, no dairy, no white flour, no white rice, no potatoe, etc] ● Maintain normal body weight ● Perform daily 30 minute physical exercise ● Maintain normal cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood pressure levels As far as your "yeast infection" go see a doctor, you may have a STD.
Avatar n tn My 8-year-old son was diagnosed with ADD. Last spring we started him on dexadrine, 1/2 tablet per day. When school ended we discontinued the dexidrine to let him "detox." One week before school started we restarted the dexidrine, 1/2 tablet. approximatelyn 3 weeks later his psychiatrist popped it up to 1 tablet (.5grams) per day.
Avatar m tn I am still having problem to have a diet which could get me the target nutrition. I've switched from traditional breakfast to nutrients rich breakfast. But dinner and lunch are still the same. So I need to think about them. For lunch in the weekdays, I can't get the lunch as I want, because at time I'm at work and have to eat whatever they offer in the mess. But I can change my dinner meal. And if I go for my own meal then I can get it earlier like at 9, which would be healthier.
Avatar f tn Hi. I was diagnosed with ADD when I was 8. I have always taken medication to help me focus in school and have always found that I lose my appitie and when the medication wears off at night I get my appitie back. Well now that I'm 15 I've became obsessed with my weight. Exercising like crazy tracking calories and carbs in everything I eat. I take in about 600-800 calories a day. Is that healthy for a 15 year old girl?
757137 tn?1347200053 There was a news item today that claimed a connection between ADD and the use of organophosphates (a pesticide) on the food we eat. Apparently, in tests it was found that children with ADD tended to have very high levels (well above he norm) of this poison in their systems. I will see what more I can learn about this. Even when we are conscientious in caring for our children there are hidden dangers all around us.
1453183 tn?1287852619 First make sure to eliminate any foods that may contain pesticides from the diet. They have been linked to ADD / ADHD. Supplements that may help are fish oil, flax seed oil, DL-phenylalanine or tyrosine, and SAM-E. Also make sure that your child is eating a balanced diet (try to eliminate processed or unhealthy foods such as sodas, sugary cereals, etc) and getting plenty of exercise. It is good that your doctors are taking him off the medication.
1654484 tn?1334244436 I actually stopped focusing on my diet altogether for a bit and have decided to take control again. I will add whole grains, brown rice and beans back to my diet. I am thinking I am going to start counting WW points again. I feel like I need to regain control of my diet. I have been pretty dilingent about going to the gym 2-3 times a week and I have been working out with a trainer. I am definitely building muscle, and I am actually firming my butt. However, I have not lost any weight...
Avatar f tn and how big a impact those words of change your diet would have !! The last couple of days I have been walking around a lil stunned not really knowing what the heck to do. I'm afraid to eat !! instead of wheat bread the say white :( it is 25 mg of Phos. Barley 1/2 cup 40mg piece of salmon 279mg. a apple 15mg. this is just a example It is in everything we eat ! we drink ! I have a list of what is bad and what is better for me..but the better for me is in very small portions..
266539 tn?1281405752 I think you should add a Diet Fourm for those dieting and need a little encouragement or ideas.
Avatar f tn Oh yeah, wanted to add, my mom calls it the "alley" diet. she said the first time I went to rehab she lost weight. Anyone wanna lose a few pounds, come hang out with me for awhile. i'll show you how....
98010 tn?1305903335 Can you recommend some ways for me to add more fiber to his diet without him noticing (he is a picky eater)? Is it safe to add a powdered fiber supplement to his meals and if so, how much (he is not quite 40 lbs.)? I feel so bad for him because it obviously causes him a lot of pain and discomfort. Any suggestions you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and help.
Avatar n tn is it possible that someones diet might cause hyperthyroidism such as an overabundant salt intake?
Avatar f tn Milk thistle, alpha lipoic R acid, selenium, zinc, magnesium, vitamin Bs, Vitmain D if it shows low on blood tests, No iron. There are many others to add but this is a good start. Eat a Low GI diet. Drink lots of water. Exercise - or at least go for a walk a few times a week depending on your level of fatigue. Drink whey protein smoothies, also if you have cirrhosis limit protien intake to 1gram per kilo of body weight. If you have cirrhosis, limit salt intake.
