Patient discussion about small

Q. Is it true that if you want to lose weight you should cut your food in small pieces? I mean, you burn more calories in the cutting, and in the chewing (as you have more pieces to chew on...)

A. not really...i tried this diet and i lost a few lbs. but not too much. it has reason in it because eating slowly will get you to eat less. you see, it takes a while until the body reacts to food entering the stomach and if you eat fast food you are overriding this mechanism.

Q. Can I get a little more information on amniocentesis…. hi all…..I am 38 years pregnant. I am expecting my 3rd child and I will have my amniocentesis test next week ………can I get a little more information on amniocentesis…. what else I can find and why do they take this and can it harm….. Please.

A. Hi………. Amniocentesis is done in 15 – 18 weeks for genetic screening. It’s mainly done for the pregnant women of more than 35 years of age. This is mainly carried out, if the prenatal test had shown any likelihood of problem with the baby or If found with any genetic problem with previous child and any previous miscarriages also. It’s used to check the baby`s heart rate and lung maturity. They check for any chromosomal abnormalities. Generally risk is very less such as high loss of blood, infection, premature labor.

Q. Where can i get the little computer for kids who have autism? I don't know what its called but its like a little computer or something that reads allowed what the person is writing. Can someone please tell me where to get it. I would love it if my brother had one because he has autism. Thank you!

A. What you want is text-to-speech SOFTWARE that can be loaded on any computer. You paste any text into the onscreen box and it will read it with a synthesized voice. So you have have to be able to highlight, copy, and paste the text.
The link below is a free one. You can find lots more on google if you type in "text to speech".
