We’ve got another juicy episode of responding to your medical comments! Today we talk about how to get taller or maximize your height, whether you should come out with your sexuality to your doctor, what role the frequency of your drinking plays into your ability to get drunk, the truth about chicken pox, cracking your knuckles/neck/back, elder care, radiology, draining your lungs, allergies, and so much more. Got a question you’d like me to answer? Drop it down below and I’ll try to get to it in my next Responding To Comments videos!

Isn’t it called chicken pox because of the dots mimicking raw chicken skin? I have KP and it is actually called chicken skin even more so that’s funny too

I don't if I'd feel comfortable coming out to my doctor if I was in the states. Having to deal, with the judgement ,or refusal of treatment or insurance dropping me if they found out . In any other more developed, sane country that is illegal. Even in places like South Korea orTaiwan I'd be ok coming out on my own not sure so much if put on the spot and asked.

While I agree it’s important to be open with doctors if they ask about your sexuality it’s also important to keep oneselfs safe for example I have a friend who’s parents are very controlling and go with him to every doctors appointment and if he was to honestly tell the doctor that he was gay he would be putting himself at risk as his parents are very homophobic

Curious Creation
Question about coming out/sexuality. I'm asexual, and whenever I've told medical professionals, they've thought it was weird, they look at me like I have 2 noses when I say I'm in my 20s and never had any interest in sex, even though I have a significant other. Is that still important to mention, or will is just lead to them trying to "cure" me even though it's not an issue? Like, the issue is that I have chronic nerve pain, not lack of sexual attraction...

I am torn on the matter of coming out to doctors, or rather, torn on the formatting or phrasing of the answer to it in this video. On the one hand, from Dr. Mike's perspective as a decent physician seeking to provide the best care possible, it is always good to know your patient's gender identity, sexual orientation, and level of sexual activity. On the other hand, from my perspective as a gay man living in a world and time where medical discrimination against LGBTQ+ people is still very much a thing, that discrimination has to be considered when deciding whether to come out to medical personnel. I don't think it is right to say that it is always the right thing to disclose that information because of how not unusual it is for LGBTQ+ people to face discrimination in medical settings. Maybe better than saying "yes, come out to your doctor," it is more appropriate to say "lean towards yes, but don't forget that doctors are people and if you see red flags, and have any choice, take your business- take your body- elsewhere." Even in the chat, there are multiple examples of LGBTQ+ people sharing how physicians have been disrespectful, dismissive, ignorant, or otherwise handled the subject or the information varying degrees of embarrassingly poorly. Sadly, there are still cases of people or even their dependents being denied care once their sexuality is known. A doctor asking me if I am gay could be a way of helping to make sure I get a better quality of care, or from some doctors (not every doctor or most doctors, but any new doctor) it could be the start of a process by which quality care is withheld. Coming out to medical professionals is a bit more of a minefield than I feel like Dr. Mike's answer lets on. I get that this is a big question showing up in a kind of... lightning round style video, but it really is a question that deserves a much longer answer because I, for one, would love to see a Dr. Mike video about the latest stats on LGBTQ+ discrimination in medical settings, advice he has for fellow medical professionals to telegraph that they are LGBTQ+ friendly providers, maybe interviews with some LGBTQ+ people to get a first hand account of things that go wrong and things that go right, and maybe his (or those LGBTQ+ experts') advice as an insider to the system for what to do when one encounters medical discrimination- especially in contexts where finding another doctor is not feasible. It is maybe outside the format of the channel, but it really is a subject with room for a deeper dive than "yes and any good doctor should ask you that."

Aw, Dr. Mike... you skipped the perfect opportunity to spread awareness about one food intolerance which can actually be self-inflicted! Gluten. If you do not have Celiac Disease, but you cut gluten out of your diet for an extended period of time... you can inflict in inability to properly digest gluten upon yourself. And it is likely nearly impossible (without treatment like a fecal transplant) to restore once you have destroyed it. Gluten is broken down in a health person without Celiac by a bacteria in your gut. If you starve that bacteria by staying away from gluten long enough, it does like anything starved - it dies. And from that point forward, unless the bacteria is re-introduced (through fecal transplant or other route... not probiotics which are marketing mumbo-jumbo that don't survive gastric juices), you can no longer break down gluten. It will cause varying levels of intestinal distress. Might be terrible, might be no big deal, it varies a tremendous amount. But I like to think that if you cut out gluten because it was trendy and you take your dietary recommendations from your Facebook feed, you get to have diarrhea for the rest of your life any time you eat bread, one of the most common foods in every culture throughout all of human history. Because it seems fitting to have a very vibrant reminder of how unthinking and blithe about your own biology you used to be.

About the popping towards the last video, is this advice on popping exclusive to joints? Me, my mom, and my grandma can all pop our noses. Meaning if we push our nose to the right or left (on the bottom of the nose) it produces a sound and feeling similar to popping your knuckles.
