LAMB - Would you kindly tell me why, when I take the so-called water pills once a day for two days, I have a feeling of weakness that really puts me out of commission? Incidentally. I'll be 90 next month. DEAR READER — By water pills, I presume you mean a pill that will cause the kidneys to form more urine. Pills of this type are sometimes used to enable women to lose water if they retain fluid just before their mentrual periods, and they're also used in the treatment of high blood pressure or the accumulation of water in the body from a number of diseases, including heart trouble. Most of the water pills work by causing the kidneys to discard sodium, commonly found in table salt and other foods. Sodium is a natural and necessary element, in the normal body. We have enough sodium chloride (table salt) in our bodies to make the blood and other free fluids about as salty as ordinary sea water. As long as sodium salt is retained by the body, the body will also retain water. If the sodium is eliminated by the kidneys, a certain amount of water will go with it. Thus the way to get rid of excess water in many instances is to get rid of excess salt. So far, so good, but the problem is that many of the water pills also cause people to lose other salt, including potassium salt. Potassium is commonly found in fruits and fruit juices. Loss of too many of these minerals will cause fatigue and other problems. Too great a loss of ordinary sodium salt will also cause fatigue. Many people do feel "washed out" after they've passed a lot of water from taking a "water pill" that also eliminates a certain amount of the body's salt. Now I'd like to caution you against misinterpretation of my remarks. Do not assume that you should take salt to counteract this reaction By Lawrence E. Ldmb you're having. That could actually be dangerous if you need to eliminate cxcesK salt that you've alrcadjl accumulated. The best, thing for you io do is to talk to your doctor and perhaps he can sluggest how you can modify your diet to avoid this problem, or he may be able to cut dolvn the strength of the water pills you are taking or even givdi them less often. Sometimes a low dosage taken consistently is better than a large d<t>se intermittently. The large dose may cause a sudden washing out of a lot of salt and water, which can cause fatigue. Of course, some of these situations are ' like being between the devil ailid the deep blue sea. You hjave to have the pills to keep the body fro m becominj; excessively overloaded with water and causing other problems, and yet if yciu take the pills for the reasons I have mentioned, you can have some side effects. The only proper decision the doctor can make in this instance is to choose thfl lesser of two evils and usually this means giving the water pills. Incidentally, individuals taking "water pills'* who perspire a lot because of the summer heat or physical activity may begin to have symptoms of fatigue, whereas in the cooler months, or without sweating, tWy are normally adjusted. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Losing Weight" booklet.

I made up my mind I was going to get rid of the excess baggage. After many months of careful dieting and exercise I accomplished my goal. You wouldn't believe how many well-meaning but thoughtless people have said, "You are beautiful! It's like a miracle. You were such a fat, ugly kid . . ." etc., etc.. etc. Just yesterday my cousin described how ridiculous I looked at my sister's wedding — how my dress was popping at the seams, and how out-of- the place I was. alongside the .s 1 i en and graceful bridesmaids. She roared with laughter. I felt like crawling in a hole. People who have lost weight are glad when someone notices, but please, Ann. tell them it isn't necessary to make crude comparisons between (he way they look now and the way they looked before. Most of us are — TRYING TO FORGET DEAR TRYING: You told them — and I thank you on behalf of all the overweight people who have won the battle. DEAR ANN: My father is married to my mother-in-law. To make it simpler — my husband's mother married my dad. They live in another state. My mother-in-law has shut me out of their lives completely. She writes to my husband at work and phones him there. I don't know why she resents me. There seems Mulvill and Wolff vows performed The topper's back in fashion with the granny motif.

My father is not much of a letter writer and he hates to talk on the phone, so I rarely hear from him. This hurts me deeply. My husband says people over 60 should be able to do as they please. I believe children have the right to expect parental attention all their lives — the same as parents have the right to expect their children to love them forever. Am I expecting too much? - LEFT OUT DEAR OUT: The quality of attention a person receives by asking for it — or worse yet, by insisting it is his due — is less than satisfactory. Your father has a wife and you have a husband. Concentrate on your marriage and leave your father alone. DEAR ANN: I am 23, have been married less 'than two years and am ready to call it quits. My husband drinks too much and I disapprove. He says, "I'm the boss around here and if I want to drink no damn woman is going to tell me not to." I have to worry about getting the bills paid and it's not easy when a man blows $35 on a weekend for beer and whiskey. Now he is nagging me to have a baby. He thinks a son will settle his nerves and make him feel more like a man. He claims it's a wife's duty to have a family. I am afraid to bring up children in a home where there is drinking and fighting. Please excuse the mistakes in this letter. I want to get it in the mail before "Stalin" comes home. — UNDECIDED DEAR UN: I'm printing your answer in the paper because I don't want to risk sending it to the Kremlin. The present situation sounds rocky, to say the least. Talk to a counselor and decide if your marriage is worth saving. DON'T have a family unless you're sure it is. Is alcoholism ruining your life? Know the danger signals and what to do. Read the booklet, "Alcoholism — Hope And Help," by Ann Landers. Enclose 35c in coin with your request and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope to the Alton Evening Telegraph. MRS.

Safety tips for tfie home glass problem Every year about 250,-flOO people in the United States are injured by accidents involving storm'doors, patio doors, shower enclosures or other glass installations. U.S. Public Health Service reports that most of the accidents occur around the home and at least half of the victims are under 15 years of age. Ordinary annealed glass, the non-safety type that breaks into sharp pieces upon impact is usually involved in these accidents. Less dangerous types of glass are available, including tempered, laminated, and wire-mesh glass plus various types of plastics. Tempered glass, for example, is three to five times stronger than ordinary glass and only slightly more expensive. In the long run, it may be cheaper than ordinary glass because it doesn't break as easily and therefore need not bo replaced as often. When tempered glass docs break, it forms relatively harmless pieces resembling rock salt. Food and Drug Administration's Bureau of Product Safety has joined with private organizations on the Consumer Safety Glazing Committee to alert consumers to the dangers of ordinary glass. They will promote a model state law to require that all glass in critical locations be made of safely materials. Until that law goes into effect, suggestions are offered for protecting yourself and your family against accidents with glass: — Specify safety glazing materials when building a new house. . — Consider replacing ordinary glass with safety glass before someone has an accident. — Replace broken glass only with safety materials. —Use clecals, screens or furniture to help warn people about glass doors or walls. — Learn to be careful around glass doors and teach your children to do likewise. Your home may have safely glass, but your neighbor's may not.
