Q: 

I always am tired yet I get lots of sleep. I was wondering what a good way to increase my energy would be?

A: There are a few factors in achieving maximal energy. First off, every person requires a different amount of sleep due to their suprachiamsmatic nucleus located in their head. This very small part of the body is what innately determines the amount of sleep that one will require. So, each person is different and you will realize what the optimal amount of sleep is as you wake up each morning and think about how much sleep you got that night. The average is between 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Exercising is hugely important in gaining maximal energy. It is counter intuitive because after you exercise you are tired. However the way it works is...

I also scar from things like cat scratches. I know part of this is skin, but as far as the bruising goes, what could THAT be? One of my friends mentioned an iron deficiency. Is there any truth to this? If so, what are good sources of iron besides supplements, and red meat (which I refuse to eat in large quantities due to its effect on my health?)

A: Hi - I''m not a medical professional but I do know that a symptom of iron deficiency anemia can be bruising. As you mentioned both anorexia and PCOS, these could be logical suspects for the anemia. You should really go to your doctor and get some thorough blood work lab tests done. That''s the only real way to know what''s going on. Hello Oshinn, Bruising can be a sign of serious and not as serious underlying conditions. Obviously, if you are sustaining bruising without any physical impact, that is something to take note of and consult with your physician on. You mentioned that you
