    Excess yeast growth can occur in many places

    Dear Dr. Roach: I am a 63-year-old woman who has always carried extra weight, but I have gained a few more pounds in the past year. I am overweight but not obese. I have been having a problem with my navel, and have been told that it is a yeast infection. I was given medication and told to use it every day … forever! Is there no way to cut the amount of yeast one produces? I also get it under my breasts and anytime I take an antibiotic.

    Hyperparathyroidism surgery recommended

    Dear Dr. Roach: My primary-care doctor sent me to an endocrinologist after my blood test showed that I have high calcium levels in my blood (10.7 and 10.8) and very low vitamin D levels. I had a bone density test, which showed osteopenia, especially in my left hip. I was told that I have hyperparathyroidism, and the only treatment is to have the affected parathyroid glands removed.

    Supplements are not necessary for most

    Dear Dr. Roach: You recently wrote that you do not recommend healthy people take supplements. What about training athletes? I’m thinking creatine for weightlifters, coenzyme Q-10 and B vitamins for endurance sports. I also have read newspaper reports citing vitamin D deficiency as “epidemic” in the general populace. For someone training one to two hours per day, is diet sufficient?

    Angry wife resents husband for hiding news of his health

    Dear Abby: When my husband is sick or needs to have surgery, he refuses to tell his family and doesn’t want me to. This puts me in a very awkward position. I’m damned if I do tell them because he will be upset with me, and damned if I don’t because his family won’t trust me, and I don’t want things that way.
