Avatar n tn Lacto-ovo vegetarians eat milk, cheese, yogurt, and eggs. Lacto-vegetarians eat milk, cheese, and yogurt, but avoid eggs and foods containing eggs. Vegans, or strict vegetarians, avoid eating all animal products. Thus to answer your question, it is possible to avoid all meat, fish or dairy in a strict vegan diet. If one were allergic to legumes, it would make it more difficult to obtain the necessary nutrition.

Avatar n tn If you don't have anemia, you don't have an iron problem. Vegetarians should have no problem getting sufficient iron, as it's present and best absorbed from a variety of plants. Examples are nettles, raw spinach, raw dandelion greens, beets, parsley, watercress -- you get the picture here, green leafy vegetables and others as well. Now, just being a vegetarian doesn't mean you're eating well.
Avatar m tn One of my friends has currently been having some puzzling heart problems. She would be sitting in class, and all of a sudden her hear would race. She would immediately report to the infirmary, where the nurse would take her heart beat into record. I think the highest it ever was was pushing 120, almost into 130. It wasn't like she was doing anything physically strenuous. The only other symptom was a slight tingly sensation in her face, no specific part just all over.

448723 tn?1301454958 So DH made me promise to contact the doctor in the morning and explain what had happened and see if I needed to be checked. The midwife said that I needed to come in immediately (when I rang in the morning) and they went over in detail what had happened the night before. The doctor then saw me and sent me for an ECG which they don't expect will hold any answers for me as I was feeling fine by the time the ECG was done.
Avatar f tn however, you should get both thyroid and B12 levels tested. Many people who have thyroid problems are deficient in B12.
Avatar m tn Red meat for healthy hearts In a big victory for the low-carb crowd, Indian researchers have found that vegetarians have a dramatically higher risk for heart disease, heart attack and stroke. Since some 40 percent of the country is vegetarian--and less then a third eat meat regularly--they know a little something about the meat-free lifestyle over there.
1616953 tn?1443835511 Beth and I are kind of being arms length. I think I've gotta get off the computer or spend more quality time. Got into bed and tried to decode some kind of pattern to my heart irregularity. For a while (Prev night) I thought it had some repeating cycle. Like 8 beats before it skipped then 4 beats for a while then back to 8 and then 16. All really interesting except none of that happened when I started paying attention last night.
Avatar n tn I have no health problems besides a slightly higher than normal heart rate (100-115bmp) which my cardiologist describes as adequate for me. I recently had blood work done. My GFR was around 58 and my BP was 142/84 (usually 110/76). I've been a vegetarian for about 3 1/2 years now and feel like my diet is better than most. I'm basically wondering if my diet could cause a low GFR and if I should be concerned about this?
Avatar n tn Low iron can lead to fatigue during pregnancy, depression, more bleeding post delivery as well as a longer recovery time. Iron found in vegetables comes with vitamin c in the plant so is easily absorbed and the iron level per calorie is higher in plant forms than meat.

212161 tn?1599427282 m sure they would be dead in minutes with blockages in the heart and brain. Iodine deficiency causes thyroid problems, and was very rare in the UK because the dairy industry used Iodine in the sterilization process of milk churns. The Iodine kind of bonded to the metal and then absorbed into the milk, unknowingly giving a supplement to everyone. Now we get our mile from the EU in plastic containers and thyroid problems are growing in numbers.

Avatar f tn Low B-12 can also cause anemia of a different morphology (so-called megaloblastic) and may be due to lack of dietary intake. This is most commonly seen in vegetarians since B12 is mainly found in animal meat. Those who had gastric or intestinal surgery would also have low B12 due to poor absorption of the vitamin.
1318009 tn?1282696950 Back and left arm extremely sore and left arm from my elbow to my fingers numb and tingly. Recommends shoulder rest, heat and ice. Reviewed my health survey, Many problems.

Avatar n tn Dear Jains, Has you son been examined by an eyeMD. What is his vision in each eye? Does he have a lazy eye due to the difference in prescription between the two eyes. I would recommend that you seek the care of a pediatric eyeMD to determine the best treatment. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
