Dear, alcohol dependence syndrome (addiction) is a serious condition which can cause harm to various organs of the body including brain and nervous system. The symptoms like tingling and numbness and shaky hands are due to peripheral neuropathy and weakness of the nervous system. Whereas loss of apetite and wt loss are due to liver and git dysfunction. Lot of time people believe addictions are just bad habits which can be left at anytime with some wiilpower. And only later they realise that its not as easy as it sounds plus it becomes alarmingly dangerous in later stages of addiction. Kindly consult a psychiatrist as soon as possible for complete evaluation and treatment. You may also have to consult a liver specialist if your suffering from jaundice or liver dysfunction. Regards, Dr. Vishal chhabra.

Hello, Madam, the reason for suggesting Insulin treatment is that with oral drugs blood glucose control may not be proper. Ideally when in control FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If there is persistent hyperglycemia even with oral drugs, then Insulin is the only option. I am sure you are aware, diabetes occurs mainly due to insulin deficiency plus resistance to its action (T2 DM). In fact safest and most effective drug to treat diabetes is Insulin injections. It helps to achieve excellent blood glucose control. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Avoid tight underwear to provide have a good massage therapy with herbal oils to improve blood circulation loose excess weight. Having a healthy diet containing whole grains and vegetables rich in proteins and vitamins. Sperm levels are at the top of the building in the morning and the afternoon is the best time to make love. Stay away from cigarettes and alcohol. Practice yoga and meditation to be stress free. Try to exercise regularly. Try to maintain a difference of three days between two consecutive ejaculations to remain fertile avoid spicy and sour food acids.

What medicine use for fever?

What medicine use for fever?
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever  -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami, Amla juice etc.  -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals like sprouts.avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport.  -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

My daughter get cough repeatedly.What should i do?

BHMS
General Physician

Hi, thanks for writing to lybrate. I can understand your concern. Recurrent cough could be because of several causes. One of the important causes that comes to my mind is allergy. If there is associated history of fever one should also think of other causes like tuberculosis, foreign body etc. Your daughter should be investigated further and antibiotic courses may not suffice. A blood count and crp will help in identifying if there is any infection. A x ray chest may help to identify the causes of cough. Mantoux may help to identify if tuberculosis is the cause of that cough. I suggest you to consult your doctor who may suggest you the above mentioned investigations after a physical examination. Further treatment should be based on the cause that is identified. Continue to ask further queries as required. Hope this helps.
