From the observations of 2d echo report, my lvef was observed 45% (50-80%) (mod. Simpson) which has put my mind on full tension due to some abnormal report. I visited fortis escorts heart institute, new delhi on 9.5. 2015 and had dobutamine- stress echo test, my particulars are as under: name of patient devinder kumar age 67 years.

Whether morning/evening walk/exercise is permitted or to be avoided? any risk/precautions? as mentioned in escorts heart institute dobutamine- stress ehco report: ------- lvef 45% at baseline and lvef 52% at peak dose needs clarification.

In some cases, repeated examination and screening yield no positive results, yet the patient still complains of vaginal discharge. It is then appropriate to explore with the patient the nature of the discharge and relate this to normal physiological discharge, to review personal hygiene habits (advise to avoid douches, perfumed products and tight synthetic clothing) and to explore the possibility of the hidden complaint, such as depression, anxiety or psychosexual dysfunction. Graphotes - profuse, thin, white mucous discharge which comes in gushes with associated back and lower abdominal pain, discharge is more profuse in the morning on rising, constantly cold.

My Hba1c is 8. What to do. If take 5 mg gilpezide or gilmepride 1 mg before breakfast it drops to 70 or 50.
Your hba1c shows poor glycemic control. Consult your diabetologist, and tell him/ her of your sugar levels falling on taking the medicine. They will either change the drug itself or alter the dosage. That should help you. Also try and maintain good dietary control.

1. No need for supplements or medicines. 2. Spend 80% gym time on Cardio - 10% time strength - 10% time abs exercises. 3. Monitor your calories with 'Myfitnesspal' app. 4. 2000 calories is too high, you have to stay between 1400-1600 calories. 5. Sometimes weight loss gets stuck at certain levels, just continue with your efforts. 6. Don't give up.

I am suffering from acute fever. Can you please suggest me some of the tablets to recover from feer as soon a possible.
Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

My weight ki 61 kg and height is 5'11' I want to gain the weight so plse help what can I do?

My weight ki 61 kg and height is 5'11' I want to gain the weight so plse help what can I do?
To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow the regimen of weight gain religiously and you will soon start seeing the results.

Mr. lybrate-user, The diet mentioned looks fine except following: 9 nutri biscuits, & 1 plastic packet of poha. Both these should be dropped. No replacement is needed. Rest of the diet is more than enough. There is no mention about what physical activity is being done every day. Because if one has diabetes then at least 1 hour's brisk walk every day is essential. Thanks.
