This is Dr. David

she needs to go to the ER for blood testing and IV fluids to help fix dehydration.

24 hours of severe vomiting can cause lots of loss fluids and dehydration and electrotyle imbalances such as low sodium, low potassium, and metabolic alkalosis.

the dizziness can be from severe dehydration.

she needs IV fluids to help bring her fluids back up.

you should call up an ambulance to bring her to the ER or take her there right away for blood tests and nausea medications

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
