I am about 18 years old and I have a sweating problem. The problem is that even while working out or doing any physical work, I would be the one who will be having most sweat among my friends. For example, if we went cycling together for say 5 kms, I would be the only one with the full wet shirt. But some say this is because I am a bit overweight. Please help.

A level of 20 nanograms/milliliter to 50 ng/mL is considered adequate for healthy people. A level less than 12 ng/mL indicates vitamin D deficiency. Don't worry, you are fine. Just take d boost sachet every week 4 times.

Hair is became thin. Have suffer from jaundice at the age of 8 & 14. How hair regrowth. Age 33.
Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like *physical or emotional stress, inadequate protein intake, genetics, anemia, aging, hormonal changes, prolonged illness, deficiency of vitamin b6 and folic acid, thyroid diseases. *hair fall can also result when one indulges in too much dying, blow drying or use of hot curlers. *dandruff can also be great cause behind hair fall. Follow the tips *make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. *eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. *eggs as it is loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amount. *add more vitamin rich food to your diet. *avoid stress and anger. *cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. *take a sound sleep. *avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight. *avoid hot hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. *it is best not to comb the hair while it is wet as this leads to greater chances of hair breakage.

I have a gas problem but last 2 days I am feeling heavy pain in my ass whenever I go for latrine.

MBBS, MD, CCEBDM(diabetology), CCMTD(thyroid dissorders)
General Physician,
I have a gas problem but last 2 days I am feeling heavy pain in my ass whenever I go for latrine.
This might be result of hard stool induces anal fissure. Try to avoid spicy, oily, rich animal protein diet and have as much fibrous diet like salads, vegetables etc as possible. Try to control gastritis with common PPI drugs like pantoprazole, rabeprazole (Razo-L once daily in empty stomach) etc and use ointment like ano bliss inside anal opening 2-3 times a day. If the problem is not controlled with this or there is some other problem, a detail history with examination will be needed to treat. Thank you and be healthy.

you may be having deficiency of vitamin D . if you press the sternum it pains is indicative of vitamin D deficiency which helps absorption of calcium for formation of bone .you can have exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun which converts the eargosterol pigment which is present in the skin to vitamin D.you should consult a medical specialist. for assessment and further management.

8 Causes Of Chronic Kidney Diseases!

MBBS, MD (Med), DNB (Nephrology)
Nephrologist, Mumbai
8 Causes Of Chronic Kidney Diseases!

Chronic Kidney Disease (also known as Chronic Renal Failure) is the progressive loss of kidney function occurring over a span of several months to several years and is characterised by the replacement of kidney architecture with nonfunctional fibrotic shrunken tissue. Chronic kidney disease is classified into five stages on the basis or proteinuria (presence of protein in large amounts in the urine) or Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) 1 being the mildest with no distinct symptoms and 5 being end stage renal failure. 

Causes and Risk Factors of Chronic Kidney Disease 

The various reasons (called risk factors) that can increase chances of Chronic Kidney Diseases are: 

  • Diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia (excess fat proteins in the blood) 
  • Hypertension 
  • Family history heritable renal disease 
  • Older age smoking 
  • Autoimmune disease 
  • Past episodes of acute renal disease 
  • Kidney Stones 
  • Excessive self-medication especially pain killers 

The direct causes of Chronic Kidney Diseases are: 

  • Diabetic nephropathy (leading cause) 
  • Hypertensive nephropathy Glomerulonephritis (swelling of the glomerulus in the kidneys) 
  • Reno-vascular disease (ischemic nephropathy) 
  • Polycystic kidney disease 
  • HIV-associated nephropathy 
  • Transplant allograft failure 
  • Exposure to drugs and toxins 

Diet that you must maintain in Chronic Kidney Disease: 

It is essential to make dietary as well as lifestyle amends once you are diagnosed with CKD. The main purpose of this diet is to maintain the levels of carbohydrates, fluids and minerals. This is done to prevent the buildup of waste products in the body as the kidneys are unable to fulfil its function properly. It is recommended to refer a dietician who can make you a diet chart that helps you adhere to your diet. 

Here is a list of food items that you may avoid or may consume if you are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease: 

  1. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are a good source of energy. If the intake of protein has been restricted, then it is recommended to replace that with carbohydrates as a source of energy. Fruits, vegetables, grains and bread can be consumed as they are rich source of fibres, minerals and various types of vitamins. You can indulge in some hard candies or sweets as well. 
  2. Fats: Fats can provide a good amount of calories as well. Ensure that you only stick to healthy fats such as the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that are good for your cardiac health. 
  3. Reduce your phosphorus intake: A diet with no more than 800 mg of phosphorus can help reduce the risk of too much phosphorus building up in your blood. Limit intake of foods with high levels of phosphate or phosphate additives such as organ meats, whole grain breads, processed foods, cola beverages, cheese, dried beans, liver, peanut butter, dairy products and chocolate. Many beverages and processed foods have these additives. Other high-phosphorus foods to limit include: 
    • Ice cream 
    • Legumes 
    • Milk 
    • Nuts 
    • Yogurt 
  4. Monitor your potassium levels: Usually, potassium is not restricted in stage 3 CKD unless lab tests show potassium is too high. Your doctor may make medication changes or prescribe a low-potassium diet. Reduce an elevated potassium level by limiting some high-potassium foods and potassium chloride (found in salt substitute and many low-sodium processed foods). Some high-potassium foods to limit or avoid include: 
    • Avocado 
    • Bananas 
    • Cantaloupe 
    • Honeydew melon 
    • Dried fruit 
    • Legumes 
    • Milk 
    • Nuts and seeds 
    • Oranges and orange juice 
    • Pumpkin and winter squash 
    • Tomato products (juices, sauces, paste) 
  5. Proteins: Usually, before undergoing dialysis, it is recommended to adhere to a low-protein intake diet. However, when you are undergoing dialysis, it is necessary to consume a certain amount of class one high-quality protein like nonvegetarian, paneer, soyabean, mushroom. This detailed information can be obtained from your dietician. 
  6. Fluids: In the early stages of CKD, your fluid intake is not monitored. But as the disease progresses, you need to check your intake of fluids as too much fluids may accumulate in your body and create swelling in your legs and cause pressure on your lungs and heart. 
  7. Sodium Or salt intake: Keeping a check on your salt intake reduces the risks of high blood pressure. Also, having food low on salt can reduce your thirst and prevent fluid retention in your body. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a nephrologist.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. MASTURBATION is normal, natural and never unhealthy. But Excess masturbation can kill your sexual stamina. Excess masturbation can also cause anxiety disorder, depression and thereby erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation etc. You can be sure; there are no side effects to masturbation if you are able to restrict it to thrice a week. Jogging and physical exercise are always good to keep you fit and stop worrying about sex and allied thinking. I suggest online sex counseling and therapy. Take care.

Factors that can lead to ‘laziness’ are fear and hopelessness. Some people fear success, or do not have enough self-esteem to feel comfortable with success, and laziness is a way of sabotaging themselves.

Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress, but first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids).
