Dear Doctor: I just had my first baby, and I'm breastfeeding him. I really enjoy the experience, and our pediatrician says he's hitting his weight milestones. But my mother-in-law is afraid he's not getting enough nutrients and is pressuring me to switch to formula. How do I know if my newborn is…

Dear Doctor: My husband, who has been diagnosed with a sleep disorder, acts out all his dreams. He recently tore his rotator cuff and dislocated his shoulder when he fell out of bed during a dream about playing basketball. We're worried this might happen again. Are there any new treatments or…

Dear Doctor: I just read about a study that says exercise cancels out alcohol's higher risk of death from cancer. Is it possible that I can walk off the cancer risk of the cocktail I have each night after dinner? (For the record, my husband is sure that you're going to say no.)

Dear Reader: While…

Dear Doctor: I recently read that blocking follicle-stimulating hormone can combat post-menopausal bone loss and weight gain in women. Please tell me how to go about blocking that hormone!

Dear Reader: Talk to women who have hit the age of 45 and beyond, and they pretty much agree that maintaining…

Dear Doctor: It seems like if you just wait long enough, everything about nutrition gets contradicted. So now fat is good, carbs are bad, and we don't really need more than 4 servings of vegetables a day? Really? Is everything we've been taught wrong?

Dear Reader: We hear this same frustration from…

Dear Doctor: My husband, who is 79, was diagnosed with Grover's disease. I don't know if that's the cause of his depression, but now he just sits in his recliner all day. He's also moody, confrontational and seems to have given up on life. Is there really no hope for us?

Dear Reader: We're very…

Dear Doctor: Thank you for your column about service dogs and the tasks they perform. I wonder whether you could go a step further and explain the best way for people to respond when they see a working dog? A colleague of mine is blind, and dealing with well-meaning people who want to pet his dog…

Dear Doctor: I've read that "added sugars" should be limited to 10 percent of our total daily calories. But how are added sugars listed on nutritional labels? Are they part of the carbohydrates category? Does the sugar in a peach or a glass of milk count?

Dear Reader: Ah, nutrition labels. They're…

Dear Doctor: I graduated from college last spring, and I just got my first full-time job, which I love. But it means that I'm sitting for more than eight or nine hours a day, and I hate it. Would one of those treadmill desks be a good way to stay fit?

Dear Reader: Congratulations on your new job!…

Dear Doctor: What's the difference between probiotics and prebiotics? I'm really interested in how gut bacteria impact health, but I'm not sure I always understand the terminology.

Dear Reader: We agree with you that the information emerging about gut bacteria is fascinating. And as with any area…
