Sugar hyperactivity. From what I've read, it does nothing to make someone "hyper" but parents tell their kids it will make then hyper so when the kids do eat sugar they act hyperactive. A majority of studies show no link between sugar intake and hyperactivity.
I have MS. You might want to get that checked out. My neurologist checks for this at every appointment. I have never experienced it, but it is common in MS patients.
You know your brother better than I do! Also changes in sleep patterns can be one of the signs. Honestly depression been be hard to detect because the symptoms are so benign at first and when you think of illness you do the mental checklist for things like nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, etc... Not things like an inability to focus, weight loss or gain, that kind of thing.

u/jammacus down there with even more juicy stats
Depending on the years you use for your sample, murder is either the number one or number two leading cause of death in pregnant women.
For one day, it doesn't matter. You will have lost the same amount of fat.
If you do that every day for a long time, you will have grown more muscle, that will need more energy. So if you don't change your daily caloric intakes, you would lose more fat with working out. (Assuming you eat proteins and results depend on your work out.)
That said, most want to look better and be healthier when they try to lose fat, and in that case, more muscle mass is better. source for healthier
Anyhow if you are like me, you will have problems with your hunger. Try eating protein rich for breakfast. (Like half the proteins for your day.) Drink more water and always a glass of water 10min before eating. And if you still want more to eat, brush your teeth, drink a glass of water and if you are still hungry, try instead eating some alternative like some (frozen) fruits after drinking a glass of water. Also google "how to prevent hunger". Most sound like placebo, but as long as it helps you.
Oh and try to keep to a time table. Eat meals always at the same time and sleep at the same time (sleep is important for good decisions like what to eat)
I just spent 60 seconds reading WebMD, so I am now a reddit expert.
Basically the article said that if you weren't obese for very long the skin is more likely to not leave folds. But some of it is just genetic too. The impression I got was that if the skin was sufficiently elastic it would've done its snapping back during the weight loss process. So whatever extra skin he has now isn't likely to go away without surgery.
Well that's either a funny joke for everyone or a really obnoxious way to let everyone know Ryan has IBD or whatever.

Considering the amount of people in this very thread who are miseducated about diabetes, I think your comment is on the ball. People jumping on the shame wagon even though they don't know what they're talking about either.
Source: I am pre-diabetic (T2), my mother is pre-diabetic (T2) ,and my wife has been Type 1 since she was 5 years old. None of us are particularly unhealthy, my mom and I are actually very healthy and carb conscious, but we've never been able to kick the pre-diabetic a1c because genetics.
Being fat and eating shit doesn't = T2 diabetes. Eating a ton of carbs will stress out your pancreas, but two people with similar diets will have different results based on genetics. This is doubly true of T1D. You are diagnosed T1D because your immune system literally destroyed your insulin production. You can't even use stem cells to fix it because your immune system is the problem.
Diet and exercise helps with control, but diet and exercise helps with everything. It doesn't matter what you have, you need to control your diet and exercise to be healthy. Also, just because someone's diet works for them does not mean it'll work for you. Everyone has different needs and you should consult your doctor / listen to your body to find out what works best. Oh and btw, shaming someone never works. It turns you into the bad guy and gets the shamee to ignore your advice.
Also of note, there's a genetic link between T1D and Celiac disease. They both share similar triggers, which means two people with similar genes could develop T1D and/or celiac disease. If your family has T1D's, they might also have Celiac sufferers. My wife has T1D but her sister and father both have celiac disease.

I guess you mean the antidepressant-autism study discussed here. As mentioned in the article, this is a correlation, not proof of cause-effect. Since genetic factors are also part of the understood causes of autism, I think it is more likely that the correlation is that a predisposition for autism in a family is related to a predisposition for depression. There isn't a reason for you to blame yourselves, in case that's what you meant by your last sentence.

Testosterone isn't about being 'macho' or aggressive. Low testosterone levels can contribute to depression, loss of motivation, difficulty concentrating, irritability, etc... Western men are have less and less free T due to lifestyle and other environmental factors, not because of health issues or defects. The good news is that if you believe you have low T you can gradually increase it naturally with changes to your lifestyle.
I was on the other side of this as the patient, but I diagnosed myself with having rhabdomyolysis after going to a spin class for the first time (never again.)
Told the ER doctors that I was pretty sure I had it, all of the symptoms checked out, i.e. both of my quads were super swollen, brown pee (yay!), etc. They didn't believe me, was in the ER for approx. 12 hours and about to be sent home went the ER doctor came back with my blood test results and said, "So... you were right".
Ended up being checked into the hospital for 5 days on a constant IV fluid drip! The doctor admitted that I basically diagnosed myself and since he felt bad gave me a whole bunch of "hospital swag" which basically just meant a toothbrush, extra socks, hospital soap, etc. I felt like a queen.

“No one really knows why pregnancy cravings occur, though there are theories that it represents some nutrient that the mother may be lacking -- and the crave is the body's way of asking for what it needs," Source
I will say, during my first pregnancy I craved red
meat. Like, greasy burgers in the middle of the night, big steaks, etc. which was weird since I’d always been a bit adverse to too much red meat. Turned out I was anemic and needed iron. My body was trying to find it somehow. Once I started taking iron supplements, the cravings were less intense.
Right now (6 months pregnant) I crave fat and sweets. I’m guessing it’s because I’m still nursing my first and growing a second baby—my body just needs calories.
Both babies are boys, btw. I’ve heard old wives tales about cravings being linked to the baby’s gender but I haven’t found them to be true.
Could be a symptom of carpal tunnel. Keeping your arm bent while you sleep could be putting pressure on that bundle of nerves if you are susceptible to carpal tunnel.

To be fair vaping can cause popcorn lung.
So I guess the choice is take a chance on popcorn lung or have a much greater chance at getting black lung.
See snopes for more details. Little is known just yet about vaping compared to an already existing century of smoking. Vaping so far has shown to be less risky as a whole comapared to smoking, but we cannot say conclusively if it is risk free on your lungs.
That is a myth. From WebMD:

Incoherent ramblings actually is a side effect of Ambien. It's basically a hallucinogenic with "abnormal thoughts" listed as a side effect.
>Tell your doctor right away if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: memory loss, mental/mood/behavior changes (such as new/worsening depression, abnormal thoughts, thoughts of suicide, hallucinations, confusion, agitation, aggressive behavior, anxiety).
>Rarely, after taking this drug, people have gotten out of bed and driven vehicles while not fully awake ("sleep-driving"). People have also sleepwalked, prepared/eaten food, made phone calls, or had sex while not fully awake. Often, these people do not remember these events. This problem can be dangerous to you or to others. If you find out that you have done any of these activities after taking this medication, tell your doctor right away. Your risk is increased if you use alcohol or other medications that can make you drowsy while taking zolpidem.
I know it's somewhat easy to witch hunt a bigot where-ever we find them. But let's at least get our facts straight. It is possible that she rambled due to ambien if she has that reaction. It's "possible".
I hope things are better. While I don't know anything about you, if you need it there are plenty of resources online if you're looking to stop drinking too.
Of course it can be passed to humans. It has been documented.

A vasectomy can be reversed, a number of times in fact (though with decreasing success rates over time). A tubal ligation can be similarly reversed. It sounds like there are cases where reversal is impossible though.
Even sites like webmd seem to really mute the chances of addition:
They list the side-effects as:
(No mention of potentially debilitating life-long addition.)
They then go onto mention tolerance and physical dependence for the drug, (noting that neither is the same as addiction).
"[Opioid Addicted people] typically have behaviors that lead to negative consequences in their personal lives or workplace."
Given that 20-30 percent of prescribed patients end up misusing opioids , I feel like "Life Ruining Addiction" should be up front and center up in the "Experienced Side Effects" category.
Former janitor here. For God's sake, we live in a society, the toilet is ok to sit on. People who hover over the toilet seat because "germs" are being stupid as hell, germs can't survive on a toilet seat for very long at all. You're more likely to get germs on you from the bathroom faucets. Not only that, janitors bust their asses to make sure that the bathroom you're about to use is clean. Unless there's fresh shit on the toilet and you're rubbing your dick into it, you've got nothing to worry about when it comes to sitting on the god damn toilet. It's the people who are hovering over the seat when they shit or piss that's causing the mess.
So, for those of you who are so worried about sitting in a mess that you're causing the mess, knock it off and sit on the toilet like your parents trained you. If a three year old can do it, so can you.

Well I have no idea how many calories you could get from eating a baby, but here’s the math on the pregnancy.
First trimester you don’t eat more.
Second trimester you eat 340 cal a day more.
Third is 450.
90* 340 + 90* 450 = 71,000 calories per baby.
But of course, mothers gain weight during pregnancy, so let’s subtract that.
Roughly 5-9 pounds of fat gets gained during pregnancy, at 3,500 calc per pound of fat, that’s an average of 24,500 cals
71,000 - 24,500 = 46,500 cals put into the baby.
Now remember, lots of those calories are disappearing to fluids and forming structures that our body can’t metabolize such as bones and cartilage, so it’s likely there’s very little you could eat off a newborn baby, muscle tissue and fat stores, as well as organs are not going to return 46,500 calories, or even close to that. Even if the baby was 8 pounds of pure fat, you’re only getting 28,000 cals back by eating it.
Tl;dr Don’t have a baby if you’re starving, it’s not gonna help

Short answer: no.
Long answer: kinda yes but mostly no.
Difference between medicine and - for example - "diet supplements" that "increase your brain function" and "gives you crazy superpower" is that actual medicine has to be tested, show some results in clinical trails, etc.
But, it's used to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder; meaning that just because your girlfriend has low libido doesn't mean it's an abnormal libido.
Testosterone would also increase her sex drive but side effects and long-time effects would be so bad that considering testosterone is kinda crazy.
Best thing to do for her is to visit her gynecologist and there she can get actual medical answers and possibly help; "fixing" medical problems on your own is almost never a good idea.
Since I can see the potential for this misinformation based on how you phrased the question...
Pee (urine) and menstrual blood aren't coming out of the same part of the body.
Urine comes out of the urinary tract, which on women is a small hole below the clitoris but above the vagina.
The vagina is where blood comes out. It's a larger, more flexible muscle lined canal leading from the uterus. The blood comes out in varying flow and thickness depending on the woman, the day, etc.
The vaginal canal isn't very sensitive to light movement until the very entrance, so the blood isn't really felt except for the actual leaving the body part, for most people. Unless there's like a clot or something.
here's a decent diagram that I found with a quick google search
You're in for a treat because there are quite a few posts about very similar scenarios.
My advice is to contact SIL directly to find out what was given to DS. If she doesn't want to tell you, you can put her on immediate time without any guilt. Keep an eye on DS to make sure he doesn't have any adverse reactions over the next few days.

1: If you have plastic lenses (i'm pretty sure plastic lenses are the most common today) then they would shatter in much larger, less sharp pieces. And some materials used for lenses, such as polycarbonate are very durable and could likely survive being hit by an airbag.

Please explain what you mean by "counter agent"?
Adding potassium to high-sodium foods does not reduce sodium content. KCl is a salt just like NaCl, and as such, has many similar properties. For example, edema (excess fluid retention), can be caused by too high of salt intake, regardless of whether it is NaCl, KCl, MgCl2, etc. Your kidneys have to work just as hard to get rid of K+ ions as they do for Na+ ions.
Often, people are put on a low-sodium diet specifically because edema exacerbates symptoms of heart failure. There is nothing magical about potassium though that makes it any less likely to cause edema, compared to sodium.
In fact, high potassium may be WORSE for someone with heart failure or kidney failure than high sodium. That's because K+ ions are normally maintained at a much lower concentration in extracellular fluids in the body, compared to sodium. High potassium leads to hyperkalemia, which increases the excitability of muscle and nerve tissue, which can in turn lead to heart palpitations and cardiac arrest (if severe enough, or if the patient has preexisting conditions, such as heart failure or kidney failure).
So yes, there is a scientific reason why we don't simply add potassium to high sodium foods to lower the overall sodium level.
I just learned this the other day too, apparently peeing on it will only amplify the pain.

> There are also biochemical differences. Boys have less serotonin and oxytocin -- hormones that play a role in promoting a sense of calm -- than girls. That's why it's more likely that young boys will fidget and act impulsively.
Which is to say that it is more difficult to force boys to sit still and even harder for them to learn in an environment where they're forced to listen quietly.
In these situations, boys are often labeled 'troublemakers' with less effort paid toward their education and more effort paid toward controlling and restraining them.

Yes really. After some brief Googling, I found a study that estimates that every week in America, surgeons:
Leave a foreign object like a sponge or towel inside a patient's body after an operation 39 times
Perform the wrong procedure on a patient 20 times
Operate on the wrong body site 20 times
It is used for eye surgeries, it is an anesthetic that acts quickly. So it would be used where it is the best drug available instead of other options.
I respectfully disagree. Heroin and Cociane have been proven less harmful than alcohol and the vast, vast majoirty of people using alcohol use it just fine. I've seem fare more people ruin their lives in cheeseburgers and World of Warcraft. The problem is mental, not the drugs themselves. Methamphetamine is sold as a prescription under the name Desoxyn to treat obesity. So at some point Meth is less harmful than fat. Everyone has a friend who fucked up their life on something....heroin, booze, gambling, sex, overeating, video games. It's not the substance that's the problem.
Also with regulation and proper study of other drugs we can drastically improve the safety of them. Overdoses on opiates are caused because someone doesn't know how strong the thing he got was, regulation fixes that.
That last point is not true. https://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/news/20141121/restroom-hand-dryers-spread-more-germs-than-paper-towels-study-finds

I will add two more things.
1. Sometimes you'll look at the Nutrition Facts on a food label or vitamin bottle and it'll say "2000% of your daily required intake of Vitamin A" or whatever. That just means that whatever you consume that isn't necessary will be excreted in the end. However, it is possible to overdose on vitamins, just as it is possible to overdose on most things, so be careful.
2. This is crucial: vitamins and supplements are overwhelmingly not chemically verified by the FDA! While they are subject to some FDA oversight, the truth is that the vitamin market is saturated with companies who market their products as one thing but who know there's no federal structure in place for validating this. I really recommend looking into a place like LabDoor, as they will validate a company's claims in their labs.
Your mother's antibodies only protect you for the first 6 months. That is why you require the bulk of your vaccinations as a newborn.
Everyone has an agenda, it so happens that the agenda for doctors and scientists are to keep humans alive / advance our technology. They don't have any reason for lying to you.
It doesn't sound like those vaccinations were even related to your sibling's ear infections. Hell, recently there's been a trend where the increase of vaccinations have decreased ear infections as a whole.
Flu vaccinations are legitimately the exception to the Vaccine rule. Scientists pick a "strand" (type) of the influenza virus as part of their vaccination, since the flu varies year to year. In turn, some years the strand might be an effective one, or an ineffective one. The most recent flu vaccine, for example, was ineffective at around 35% chance to protect you from the flu.
Here's the thing, there was NEVER a valid study that linked autism/asthma/etc. to vaccinations in the FIRST PLACE.
Some evidence suggests that people who fall asleep and wake up late are at a higher risk of diabetes, depression, early death, and other health problems.
That said, I’m a 3am-to-11am kinda sleeper.

That's far from a stupid question. I'm glad you asked.
Generally, you want to place your hands between the nipples (easier on a guy).
To be more precise, you want to feel around to where the sternum ends in a point over the stomach area, then move two finger widths above that point for placing the pinky-side of your hand.
Then, lock your hands, lock your elbows and hinging at the hips you want to make that chest wall depress a good two inches on each pump.
Here's a site that shows pictures of hand placement.
I'd highly recommend taking a CPR class, though. In the US, most fire departments run classes and they often cost ~$25 or even less. It's very low-key and casual and filled with babysitters, lifeguards, and cubscouts. No pressure!
Fun fact: methamphetamine is occasionally prescribed for weight loss.
Edit: For those doubting me:
Unless you're familiar with some new research I haven't seen yet, you do not recall correctly. See this study, for example. We don't fully understand the role of CDS, and some researchers disagree about how much baby talk is appropriate or optimal, but that it harms their language acquisition is not the consensus.
Additionally, much of the purpose of CDS may not actually be linguistic -- emotional bonding between infants and their caregivers being an obvious example.
Invisible handicap doesn't mean things like depression but things like MS that have flair ups and remissions which can happen at any time or people with Fibromyalgia or fatigue disorders which might make mobility more difficult over time, so you show up at the store ok but by the time you leave you are not. Or heart and lung diseases or rheumatoid arthritis, the list goes on.
Also I'm pretty sure depression is not one of the qualifications for a placard and is not one of the invisible illnesses being referred to.
It's not just a teenager thing.
Seasonal affective disorder can just as easily flip to cause the summer season to be the depressed state. It's commonly known as Summer Depression.

Hyperactivity does take a dive as you get older but the ADD remains.
Your statistics are wrong.
> But longer term studies have shown that for about 70-80 percent of those with ADD, their attentional symptoms tend to persist into adulthood, even if hyperactive problems have remitted.
Sure, kids do get misdiagnosed. ADHD/ADD shares a lot of similar symptoms to things like OCD, Bipolar and Autism, as well as other disorders, but that does not mean people with ADHD will simply outgrow it or "autocorrect" as they get older. ADD, at it's core, is an issue with executive function.
It doesn't sound too bad. They're not putting something red hot in there like the graphic implies.

Whipple procedure. Yeah it's ugly, but death rate is only 1-4% at big places, 15% at smaller places. Jobs could obviously afford to go to the best.
>One of the biggest myths about Jobs is that his cancer was “extremely curable.” Boy is that not true.
Pancreatic cancer in general is usually a quick death sentence, but his type was rare and treatable. "Curable" is probably the wrong word to use with cancer, but everything I've read said it had a high chance of going into remission:
>Once it was clear that Jobs had the rare islet-cell pancreatic cancer, there was an excellent chance of a cure. According to Cleveland Clinic gastroenterologist Maged Rizk, MD, there’s an overall <strong>80% to 90% chance of 5-year survival</strong>. In the world of cancer survival, that’s a huge milestone.

I think you are mistaking a Buddhist teacher for a psychiatrist. Teachers are not there to fix your depression, they are there to help you transcend dualism and learn other Buddhist techniques and Dharma.
There is an easy solution: Read about Cognitive Therapy techniques. Basically you have habitual thoughts (lies) that you believe are true. Cognitive Therapy will teach you how to counteract those erroneous thoughts.
The proposed WHO rules to promote breastfeeding and discourage the use of infant formula is designed to promote the health of babies. There are numerous studies demonstrating that breastmilk is healthier for babies than formula.
The following quote from WebMD.com is standard advice.
"Making the decision to breastfeed is a personal matter. It's also one that's likely to draw strong opinions from friends and family.
Many medical experts, including the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, strongly recommend breastfeeding exclusively (no formula, juice, or water) for 6 months. And breastfeeding for a year at least with other foods which should be started at 6 months of age, such as vegetables, grains, fruits, proteins."
I was born in the 1950's and was bottle-fed formula. As a result, I have food sensitivities, a common outcome of not being breastfed. If i eat foods that trigger my sensitivities I suffer for more than 10 days. So I don't eat out. And I have to carefully monitor my food.
It took me years to understand what was happening to me because symptoms didn't appear until three days after the exposure.
Do you also find this thread frustrating?
Since I'm not up in this thread trying to convince people that you need a big penis to satisfy vagina owners I will add some details from a cursory google search. It is hard to measure, but some sources suggest 3-6, this WebMD article says "When a woman is aroused, it increased to 4.25 inches to 4.75 inches." Personally I max out around 6.5" on a good day with a lot of work - so usually less than that. No sources suggest 7" is the average depth of an aroused vagina.
If you're unconscious for at least five minutes, you need immediate medical assistance because you probably have severe brain damage, https://www.webmd.com/brain/tc/traumatic-brain-injury-concussion-overview#1
Let's put anecdotes aside.
First of all, as I addressed elsewhere, the nutrition facts video specifically talks about kitchen sinks versus toilets study and why these bacteria are problematic.
Second, you're right that non-meat sources make people sick more often -- but meat-borne bacteria are particularly lethal. https://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/food-poisoning/food-poisoning-causes
And many cases when people get sick from plants is actually because the plants were contaminated by water contaminated by animal farms bacteria. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/19580447/

A little of anything is okay, but we eat way too damn much. The effects of sugar have been downplayed for almost a century because of the sugar industry's influence.
>Americans average about 20 tablespoons of added sugars per day, compared to the recommended 6 tablespoons for women and 9 tablespoons for men. (That doesn't include sugar found naturally in foods like fruits and milk.)
>The AHA links added sugar to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. In a nutshell, eating too much sugar can cause fat buildup in the liver, which can lead to these problems.
>Added sugars (like sucrose and high fructose corn syrup) contain a whole bunch of calories with NO essential nutrients.
For this reason, they are called "empty" calories.
There are no proteins, essential fats, vitamins or minerals in sugar... just pure energy.
When people eat up to 10-20% of calories as sugar (or more), this can become a major problem and contribute to nutrient deficiencies.
Sugar is also very bad for the teeth, because it provides easily digestible energy for the bad bacteria in the mouth (1).
all it takes is a quick google
It doesn't just make you feel better, it reduces stress and heart disease. Wearing garments and denying yourself this pleasure shortens your lifespan. PERIOD.
"When you touch someone, the skin-on-skin contact signals your adrenal glands to cease excessive amounts of cortisol production, the aforementioned stress hormone."
OP is the author of the blog post which in itself would make me skepitcal were it not for the fact he basically plagiarized a WebMD article.

You just sentenced my wife to death. My wife had an ectopic pregnancy last spring (2016). We had just started trying for a baby and were thrilled when we found out we were pregnant. But then we found out it was ectopic. The embryo had implanted in her fallopian tube. This results in fetus dying 100% of the time. There is no physical way for it to survive. If untreated, it kills the mother 92% of the time. So while my wife is pro-life, we realized what was happening. We saw the ultrasounds. We wanted her to live.
What's even more terrible is that a shot of Methotrexate didn't end the pregnancy. She endured it for another two weeks before finding out it hadn't passed. By this point, the pregnancy had gotten so large that her fallopian tube was rupturing and she was bleeding internally. We had to rush her to the emergency room because she was dying. The doctors ended up having to remove that entire fallopian tube in order to save her life.
So are my wife and I murderers?
PS My story has a happy ending. We got pregnant 3 months later, and now have a beautiful healthy baby boy who we cherish.
Best case it's Mono (Severe tonsilitis for us UK folk)
Worst case it's something more icky and embarrassing that's spread around the locker room. Considering how much these guys travel in groups, share meals and occasionally each other, I'm amazed something like this hasn't gone through them all sooner.
People are on here saying "don't be fat" and sure, don't be fat - but the pneumonia probably had a more direct causal relationship to his heart attack.
Pneumonia kills heart cells, and increases your risk of heart attacks afterwards.
No there isn't.
>You may have heard people call someone else a “psychopath” or a “sociopath.” But what do those words really mean?
>You won’t find the definitions in mental health’s official handbook, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Doctors don’t officially diagnose people as psychopaths or sociopaths. They use a different term instead: antisocial personality disorder.
Those are just cultural labels, there's no medical distinction.
I'm thinking he knew it was there, because it was put there.
Leeches are often used for medical purposes.
Could be totally off though.
