Dr. Onika Popo-James D.O.'s Expert Contributions
  • Can a family doctor administer a vaccine for children?

    Yes, they can. Not all do! Costly to purchase the vaccines if not seeing a great amount of kids. You have to purchase in bulk and get your money back with billing for the vaccine to the insurance companies. Soooo... ask your family doc! Happy Holidays! Dr. Onika A. Popo-James, D.O. READ MORE

  • Can the flu shot actually give you the flu?

    You won't get the flu, but you may get a fever and some cold symptoms similar to when children get their immunizations. Your body is just responding appropriately to make antibodies against the virus. Not all people experience this and I suppose that if it's your 1st shot, your reaction may be more pronounced. I and my family get it every year and we have no reaction! Dr. Onika A. Popo-James, D.O. READ MORE

    Check out this link and make your own decision. MSG is not a necessary nutrient. It may have side effects for some people. https://glutamate.org/ Dr. Onika A. Popo-James, D.O. READ MORE

  • Is there any remedy for hair loss?

    It may be due to your thyroid gland, or hormones, or vitamin def. You need to have a full lab work up by your family medicine doctor. You can also see a dermatologist. Dr. Onika A. Popo-James, D.O. READ MORE

  • My urine is cloudy. Is it a sign of an infection?

    This sounds more like the hydration. And you need to check and see if you're drinking enough water. Also, depends on whether or not you are having any other symptoms. Are you having burning when you urinate? Are you urinating frequently? Do you urinate and think that you're finishing then when you stand up you have to urinate again (hesitancy)? I would 1st try to hydrate yourself very well and then see if it continues. READ MORE
