Avatar m tn Unless you've been diagnosed with a serious health condition like high blood pressure or heart disease and coffee has been specifically linked to exacerbating it (which it does in some people) and your doctor is worried about it, then a cup or two of jo a day is FINE. And I've known sh*tloads of people who gulp down coffee all day every day. Not a one of them has keeled over because of their coffee consumption.

221913 tn?1372280261 When I put sugar in my coffee I unscrew the sugar container to pour it in until I get the taste that I'm looking for. My question is this; what are the health risks of consuming all this sugar? I'm 38 years old and diabetes is very hereditary in my family. Grant you every time I've ever had my blood sugar tested it's been fine. I am however about 40 lbs over weight. What are your thoughts?
Avatar m tn If I need to have a BM it makes my legs hurt terrible then after I us the restroom it is instant pain relief. When I sleep at night my legs hurt so bad it wakes me up. I can get out of bed and walk around for a few minutes the pain goes away then I go back to sleep again. When I was a child in grade school my legs hurt me setting at my class room desk I would bounce my legs up/down all day on my toes to keep my legs from hurting.
Avatar n tn I use organic instant coffee and it takes me an hour to drink 7 ounces in the morning (1 tsp instant coffee). I actually use a watch to drink coffee and water. I take pills in the middle of meals. The slow-eating started when I had periods of bad nausea and loss of appetite and I had to literally force myself to eat. I still have to force myself to eat, but my nausea and anorexia is mostly under control. By the way, avoid 500 calorie a day diets. Avoid undereating and overeating.
Avatar m tn I'm aware of the health risks associated with lifelong treatment and accept them because I was beginning to be on the downward spiral to depression, starting to ask myself what the point of life was and such. With stimulant drugs, I can use the full potential of my brain (as well as be happy in life, through success and not seeking being "high"), so I accept that it may shave a few years off my life.
489798 tn?1270480075 In a world in which fad diets are often instant bestsellers, the desire to become pregnant may be the perfect chance to take a hard look at your nutritional habits. Where to start Make your diet "baby-friendly." It's literally never too early to begin. The American Dietetic Association (ADA) – the "top guns" in the field – stress that women should attain "good nutritional status" before conception to optimize pregnancy outcomes.
Avatar n tn I have had a serious problem with caffeine ever since I got the Gardasil vaccine. Whether or not the two are related, I have no clue, but I was an avid coffee drinker, soda drinker, what have you, before I got this vaccine. About two days after I received the vaccine I started to suffer something I cannot even accurately describe--my hands would tingle, I would feel like I was dying, I felt like I had the flu and I had a horrible fever.
Avatar f tn before we met he had nearly died from bleeding internally while trying to detox himself (he is a freelancer and has no health insurance). He's not in denial that he has to quit, but he stops going to AA and tries to do it "his way." Before long (sometimes a couple of months, but as short as three weeks) he's "taking a break" which of course slides back into full drinking. Then it's very hard for him to build up the nerve to go through withdrawal again.
Avatar n tn I have some information concerning this issue that I will post. The detoxification and eating health are very important for good health. I am sure you realize that when you have these amalgams in your mouth the mercury has already traveled in your body and now you have to detoxify to get it out. I have done everything you talk about plus more. Juicing, fasting, and adjusting the PH has been part of my program for good health.
Avatar n tn As far as food, my nauseau was so bad on tx that anything that would stay down or that didn't make me gag worked. Carnation Instant Breakfast was literally a life saver for me towards the end of tx. I had lost 55 pounds and was not getting enough protien. My doc told me to try the Carnation Instant Breakfast (I HATE Ensure). I was even told to throw a scoop of my favorite ice cream in it if I wanted.
Avatar f tn Even if someone knows the health risks, they believe it won't happen to them. And at the end of the day, all she cared about was her next high. In my personal experience and opinion- the only way someone can stop this cycle and battle the addiction is to have a strong desperate desire to stop. You cannot force someone to stop. I don't believe locking up Dawn will help one bit. Windows can be snuck out of and locks can be picked.
Avatar m tn I have tried high fiber, psylium husk, bulk additives and they ussually just plugged me up even more. I just used instant coffee for years with moderate to poor results. For the past 2 years I have been taking elemetal magnisium about 4-6 250 mg tablets per day and that seemed to regulate me and also made me feel amazing.
233616 tn?1312790796 because states and feds learned their lesson on HIV, start funding and it becomes a quagmire so most states are refusing to pass even basic public health education laws on the subject, much less being willing to offer funds for people to be tested, if they WANT to be, etc. c. most HCV people are fatiqued and depressed due to the disease, and ergo do not speak out as a group.
Avatar f tn If memory serves - and sometimes it takes very long coffee breaks - a member of this forum posted a rather caustic response to another member who was asking to vent a little because she was almost at wits end dealing with treatment and associated family problems. We have all weighed in and now this person - the caustic one - has vanished? In an earlier post I suggested that perhaps this was a ploy to get us thinking about something else and if so the caustic one had been very successful.
Avatar n tn Believe it or not, my intentions are to try to help you all not make a terrible mistake. First off, you shouldn't take anyone's word for anything, especially on the internet. Research for yourself, and make sure they are credible UNBIASED sites. Here's a great place to start Notice at the bottom the references include FDA,FTC, and American journal of medicine.
Avatar m tn I would think that most of us here carry health insurance. In Massachusetts where I live, health insurance is mandatory and we must provide proof of insurance when we file our taxes. My procedure was done at a university hospital at a total cost of $76,900 (US). My total contribution to the procedure was $280; $250 for the hospital and $30 for the physician. How much of the remainder was actually paid is inknown, but I suspect there is a lot of negotiating.
Avatar f tn I wish you the best of luck, but please don't listen to all the horror stories. Any surgery has its risks, but this one really isnt that bad. I was home from the hospital the next day.
Avatar n tn So sorry to hear of your problems. I think I can only be empathetic towards you, regarding the lack of the medical professionals to diagnose, and therefore be able to treat you. Six weeks ago, I myself have been experiencing trouble in my GI, starting in my throat, where I found it difficult to breath, like I would choke if I tried to eat anything. I went to an internal medicine MD and he asked me what I went to him for, and have I seen a GI?
Avatar n tn After being a 'don't care who sees me smoking' person for years I quit smoking because of the health risks and because I was embarrassed. Funnily, I became embarrassed about the gum/lozenge as well...I hid it for years. I used the gum/loz for over 5 years & have finally quit because it was making me feel crappy. Heart palpitations & severe bloating. I quit after cutting down for a few months.
Avatar m tn It is mostly in the am hours and I'll notice it at odd times, such as, the shower running, toilet flushing, when the coffee pot is finishing brewing. It bugs me so much. I also sometimes feel like this year is plugged up but never seem to be able to "unplug". I've tried antihistimines, nose sprays, ibuprofen, etc and nothing seems to help. My next step of course is going to the Dr. but I love to hear what other people have to say as well. Thanks so much.
Avatar f tn As fantastic as the British National Health Service is (and it is really good), they will not be sending me to an EP anytime soon as all of the tests I've had so far have come back pretty much normal and I'm young. I haven't been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia but haven't tried to be diagnosed, I understand it they wouldn't do anything about it anyway (except prescribe acid suppressants which I would decline as I think they can cause more trouble than they're worth in some people).
388261 tn?1215403444 Your self image will improve, and your health will as well. Drugs back you into this mental corner that makes you feel VOID about your person. You could care less about yourself, much less anyone else. You live in a house of pain. It takes a long time, and a lot of damned balls to self evaluate, to internalize all of the bullsh*t you have created, and get pissed off enough at yourself for the sh*t you have done to your loved ones, your body, mind and soul.
Avatar f tn ) dollars in your health. If you don't have it, ask your man to loan it to you and pay him back. Look up the biggest hospital in the biggest city you can get to, check by internet the gyn there, make an appointment (if they ask questions on the phone, say it's a 2nd opinion and tell them you've been bleeding for 6 months and in pain), go there, tell the whole story, get yourself checked out.
Avatar n tn But now I am no longer in good health, atlo of weakness and can't keep up for a brisk walk. I have a lot of issues. I was not able to access state help and was abandoned so I went to a clinical trial due to cost of meds, my age dictated the 40% possiability of remission, and was given 4 times the normal meds. My hep c is the type that can't be cured it just goes into remission and can come back later in life.
Avatar n tn OMG!! 46, will be 47 in June. Can't even tell you how everything seems to be failing, wrinkling, etc. & yes, it seems like it happened overnight. Perimenopausal as well. Had complete check up recently & no major health issues. However, my gyno has me hrt's(which I REALLY want to get off of). Added into the mix of all the skin issues mentioned, I am losing my hair like CRAZY. Anyone else having hair loss issues?
93210 tn?1287457826 The FDA approved Lap-Band based upon a comparison of its risks and benefits. Severely obese people are at serious risk of developing health problems such as hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease and diabetes. Such a procedure should be reserved for the seriously obese with life threatening health problems. Taking weight loss out of your conscious decision making is a dangerous game to play with your body.
