Hi Bed is not be used for eating and as a workstation. Bed is for sleeping purpose only. These issues are quite commonly seen with youngsters who are addicted to mobile ,tablet lap top etc. You are getting into problems because of wrong postures and neck flexion and this will cause stiffness of the neck and back. So change your habits and you should be fine. If you want specific advise about diet, nutrition and life style changes take a consultation.

Dear Lybrateuser, - The chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety or sedentary habit - avoid spicy, fried & junk food - do not skip meals, have meals on time, chew your food well, have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than three large meals, do not lye down for at least an hour after meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - have 8-10 glasses of water for proper hydration - do regular exercise like jogging, swimming, brisk walking, also do yoga & deep breathing for 10-15 min daily morning to keep your body fit.

For the last 20 years, I have been on prescribed medications of Ciplar 40 mg and Lonazep 1 mg. Total dose of ciplar per day is 100 mg. Lonazep is 3 mg total per day. I was diagnosed with PSVT. However a recent visit to a cardiologist from chennai was doubtful of psvt. He however suggested electrophysiology. But recently my b.p shot up to 170/110 at a clinic. But my home monitor showed 115/75. 15 minutes later. Of course I was in high anxiety at the clinic. Now doctors can hardly get my true b.p. Is there any medicine to cure this white coat hypertension. Please help.

You seem to be suffering from anxiety disorder rather than a psvt. Loazep (clonazepam) is a powerful anxiolytic, but is not advisable in such high doses as you use over a long period of time, as it produces cognitive changes, disinhibition, personality changes, etc. Anxiety also produces hypertension. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and gradually reduce clonazepam, which will be replaced with ssris as necessary. Ciplar on a longer run can be taken. All the best.

You are taking ppi, unizyme & other digestive tonics at age 23 & I would not prescribe all of above to a senior who is otherwise healthy. Modulate your eating habits. Reduce intake of fats, maida, salt & sugar despite bp & blood sugar being normal. Eat seasonal vegetables and fruits as much as you like but according to your constitution. Do not over eat. Take small meals but more frequently. Drink some hot beverage like green tea, mild coffee, regular tea or just warm water with juice of lemon plus a spoon of honey added to it. All of these do not allow acids or fats to remain in stomach for long and wash them towards the small intestine. Good to know that your ecg is normal but improve your digestion minus medicines (you can take saunf, jeera, heeng, ajwain in any form) do write back about improvements and heart disease can be discussed later.

You have borderline high bp, reduce salt but I am not suggesting a salt free food. Avoid tinned foods as salt is a preservative. Avoid other packed foods also like chips, namkeem, street foods. Use minimum oils for cooking. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Reduce stress by exercise and yoga and meditation. Take a tablet of safe betablocker like metoprolol 25 mg twice daily. Get back here with progress reports only after observations, after 2 weeks. Get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum.

82 years my father suffer with backach and low backach since last 10 years and he takes number of medicines prescribed by expert doctors. Present now he can' t walk strightly, different parts legs and finger bones grown up (gouts) very fast, chest pain, serious pain in abdominal stomach. What to do?

Hi , he' s taking too many medicines which will give him abdominal pain. I would suggest for a home physiotherapist who can make him to do some active assisted exercises and help him to walk. After looking at you dad and assessing him the physio will be able to suggest you whether cold or hot fomentation will help for his back. In case of disc bulge and any tear then cold pack works well and in case of muscle spasm hot works well Dr. Avanthiprabhakar

Can diabetes and cholesterol can be controlled with out taking medicines? if yes please tell me how?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Can diabetes and cholesterol can be controlled with out taking medicines? if yes please tell me how?
you should taking both medicines for diabetes and cholesterol . High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I am 49 yr old male dm2 + htn since 10 yrs. Pressure normal 130/ 80 with medication repace 25mg + stamlo (amlodipine) 2.5mg and blood glucose control pp 120 with zoryl 1mg at the time of break fast but fasting readings vary between 6.5 - 7.5. I take metformin extended release 1000mg after supper. But the fasting readings never fall below 6.5. I am sports enthusiast and play badminton thrice a week at expert level. With exercise in the evening the reading tend to rise as my intake goes up. Please advise me any long acting glucose control medicine for 24 hrs control well within 5.8. My hb1ac has always been well below 7.0 mostly remains 6.5. If hb1ac readings are well with in the range can ignore the fasting readings or is it equally important to maintain the fasting reading below 5.8 to prevent cardiac issues later. I also take cholesterol lowering drug fibator - half tab to maintain my ldl well below 80. Should you need any further details please write to me. Last but not the least use of sulfonylurea antidiabetic drug in the morning some cause hypo close to lunch time. I am worried of the side effects of this drug in long term. Kindly advise me alternate if any to this. My staple food is rice with daal, curry and curds. Pure veg

Looking at your details it appears your diabetes is in check. Slight high fasting is no problem. Nowadays hba1c level is looked at as guideline to assess control. You need not change anything. If pp levels go up can add voglibose 0.3 mg three times with each meal. Otherwise you are doing well. While playing if you feel levels are low always carry candy or gluco tabs.
