Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #26

Posted:

Audience member Jaylene has a one-year-old son, who was recently diagnosed with Hemophilia A (a hereditary bleeding disorder caused by a lack of blood clotting, which can cause bleeding into joints, urine or stool, bruising, and hemorrhage). Jaylene asks Dr. Oz how she can best deal with her son’s healing.

Dr. Oz answers that Jaylene needs to make sure her son is careful while being physically active, and to check his levels of factor VIII, which help the clotting process. Dr. Oz assures Jaylene that treatment for this is progressing more and more each year.

An audience member constantly deals with canker sores (a painful, open sore/infection in the mouth, often hereditary, and also triggered by emotional stress, dietary deficiencies, food allergies, menstrual periods, or hormonal changes) and she wonders what the best remedy is for her, being that she has seemingly tried everything to alleviate her problem. She claims that she has even tried Lysine, which Dr. Oz warns is only for viruses like Herpes and cold sores, not helping infections like canker sores.

Dr. Oz answers that she needs to examine what she puts in her mouth, and also to examine the ingredients of the toothpaste she uses. Often times, the causes of canker sores can’t be determined. However, Dr. Oz says it is a good step to examine what one puts in their mouth, and each one’s affect.

Audience member Brianna (18 years of age) has noticed some grey hairs appearing on her head. Brianna is concerned of this change at her age.

Dr. Oz answers that grey hairs appear for various reasons (from thyroid or B12 deficiencies, to amounts of melanin), and that it is most often normal (when associated with melanin levels), not to worry.

    Going off to college is an exciting time for the entire family, especially for the upcoming freshman. But with technology, parents can be in touch all the time. What's too much and what's just enough? Freshman move-in day seems to be harder on the parents than the students at Stony Brook University.
