Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and supplements


Avatar n tn But, the trouble with supplements is that you can overdose very esily, unless used judiciously or prescribed by a doctor. For instance, Viatmin A and E are easily available from our daily food and being fat soluble, they get stored in our tissues and overdosing is very easy. I do not know, why the Companies are packing such easily availble vitamins along with some other difficult to get nutrients like zinc, omega3 or B12. So, while taking supplements, always do consult the doctor.

Avatar m tn I've been taking a GNC Mega Men's multivitamin for about a week and I've noticed a huge increase in my anxiety levels. My father took the same multivitamin for a few months and became mildly more anxious in that time period as well. I'm wondering if there's any correlation between taking a multivitamin and increases in anxiety... I've heard that, if anything, multivitamins are supposed to better your mood, but that's definitely not happening with me. Thanks for your help!
535904 tn?1213468238 i'm like you, if i eat unhealthy, i worry about my heart. there are many studies that have been done on nutrition and your mental health and how what you eat effects you. i think many kids with adhd and other problems would do so much better if their parents would take the sugar and fast food away. as far as the omega-3 caps, i would start out on a low dose because they can cause nausea and other problems if you know what i mean.

Avatar m tn What exactly are you trying to accomplish by taking all these supplements? Liver health? Viral eradication? You mentioned you seem to think they help; could you expand on that?
147426 tn?1317269232 6 months later, with no treatment, they repeated the mental function testing and the MRI and compared results, including any loss of brain volume. Then they had the men apply a testosterone gel to their upper arm once daily for a year. At the end of the year they again repeated the entire testing. After a year of testosterone treatment, the men's average blood testosterone level was on the high end of the normal range.
401095 tn?1351395370 For me yoga helps me alot..I have DDD and fusions/scoliosis..also injections, steroids here and there, ice and heat, massage and anti-inflamatories, chiropratic, acupressure with a machine not needles..a half hour in a.jacuzzi helps ..I have so many machines and contraptions and special pillows it is a joke...but i guess we gotta try!
Avatar f tn Skip the Thuja, go straight to the licorice root and the supplements. Read the study and learn about the benefits of glycyrrhizin, the active ingredient in licorice for more info. This method will kill your warts (and more importantly, the HPV) in DAYS. I'm not a doctor, I'm just a persistent sufferer unwilling to wait two years for my system to maybe clear out the HPV on it's own.
Avatar m tn Is it advisable that I start taking supplements like calcium and vitamin D along with my therapy to prevent bone loss? Thank you.
645800 tn?1466864555 It seems to act as a softener as well as being a producer, if you know what I mean. If you seek a good BM and to keep on schedule, try the cod liver oil supplements - the maximum allowed on the particular brand you choose for a couple of days. I do not know if this conflicts with IBS or Metamusil usage. Hope things keep a moving in all the right direction.
Avatar n tn I gotta say i understand not wanting to pay all the fees for blood tests, office visits, and medicine...It's a drain on my pockets too. But since I've been on sinthroid, my hair has grown back, my cholesterhol isn't high anymore, I talk and move faster, I think clearer, my ankles don't swell anymore, my liver is healthy, my skin is better, I have more is so much better! The purpose of money is to enjoy a higher quality of life.
Avatar m tn Vitamins and Supplements are helpful for us. They helps us to maintain our health and fitness. But be sure to take these Vitamins And Supplements in limit. If you take these vitamins and supplements over the prescribed dosage this can be harmful for you. So taking Vitamins and Supplements is good but don't take it without an expert's suggestion.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn You still have to work extra hard to build back up the 'strength' and muscle, and take lots of extra vitamin supplements as well. By the way, I was only up to 100mg per day.
Avatar m tn Just a suggestion AND experience! It was suggested I take a mess of supplements and I also had no positive effect. BUT when I stopped them all I felt a lot better! That is when I remembered that these things all had to be processed thru my liver. Actually a big study about vitamins/supplements came out a month or so - it said they were useless unless you were deficient! Sooooo eat healthy and... You are right about the Melatonin. People take way too much!
Avatar m tn Since you have GERD your stomach is already sensitive and vitamins that you buy at drug stores and grocery stores could make things worse. Go to a health food store and look at the ingredients. Also ask some one that works there to help you find the best multi vitamin for you. Take care.

Avatar n tn My current regimen consists of taking bio-identical hormones, various health supplements including carnosine, proline and benfotiamine (which prevent and to a certian degree reverse glycation - the primary cause of elastin and collagen breakdown/crosslinking) fish collagen and ALA.
Avatar f tn And to be honest I don't remember exactly why the supplement was..P6 or P2 or something that came in a silver tube.
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn However, I am posting to reassure you that you are not alone. On the men's health forum there are literally dozens of us having issues like this in one form or another. Some of us have prostatitis-like symptoms, some of us have neurological symptoms, etc. etc. The best advice I can give is - go to your urologist now, rather than later. There are guys on the men's health forum who have been literally looking for a treatment for years now.
Avatar m tn Note: if you are on a blood thinner you should not be taking it. See if this link works - lots of info here - While this (the above) is a fairly positive report. The Harvard Men's Health Watch April 2012 said that Ginkgo bilbo is not recommended for "any purpose" as it has failed careful trials.

DHA is essential for the proper functioning of our brains as adults, and for the development of our nervous system and visual abilities during the first 6 months of life. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are part of a healthy diet that helps lower risk of heart disease.
Avatar m tn If your penis feels numb I would suggest seeing a general practitioner or primary care physician whose focus is men's health. He would know what to do. 4. Have your testosterone bloodwork results with you when you see the man in (3) above. 5. The doctor in (3) should solve your problem or may refer you to do some imaging work. Good luck.
Avatar m tn has anyone else been through this and how long did it last 2- Many people mention vitamins and supplements that have helped.
