Patient discussion about healthy diet

Q. 11 weeks pregnant. Healthy diet? One of my close friend is weeks pregnant. She feels more vomiting sensation during these times. Is this normal? And she is getting more tired hour by hour towards the end of the day. Can any experienced doctor suggest any healthy food or something else to over come it?

A. morning sickness is a common phenomenon. But if it’s too much it can cause a mal nutrition problem very fast. Your friend is week because she lack a good nutrition (at least it looks like to me) and that’s because she probably vomits all that she eats. In that case it’ll e a good idea to see a Dr. that will help her get passed this.

Q. What sort of diet will be good? my dad was operated for kidney stones. He started having high pain in his back and was taken for checkup where he was found with kidney stones. Now he is well and on bed rest. But they had told it can happen due to diet. What sort of diet will be good?

A. You may be asked to make changes to the amount of salt, calcium, oxalate, protein, potassium and fluid in your diet. A registered dietitian can help you with making these changes. and it all depends on what kind of stone they extracted. if it's made of calcium, they'll lower the amount of sodium in your diet because sodium causes you to loose calcium through the urinary system.
good luck!
