Hello, It's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems (including pain in knees & feet) which are directly related to overweight! Read the following guidelines and implement them in your routine: Management: 1: Drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: Be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: Enjoy your favorite foods. 4: Have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: Do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous) . Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. 6: Eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: Eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: Choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: Cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: Don't skip meals.When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: Eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: Give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. Exercises: Doing exercises regularly will not only cut down your belly fat, but also you will get a body in good shape and you will be get rid of many diseases related to it! Following exercises will help you to achieve this if you don’t have any other medical condition: 1.The Plank - Lie down on your tummy and then come on your palms and toes.Lift the knees off the floor. Draw your tummy muscles up and breathe deeply into the side and back of the rib cage. Aim to hold the pose for 30 seconds. 2.Static Tiger pose - Place your hands and knees on the floor. This is the starting position. Now lift up one leg and extend the opposite arm. Hold this Static Tiger Pose for 3 deep breaths. Come back to the starting position and swap sides, extending arm and opposite leg. You can look down towards the mat to keep the spine in line. This exercise will build core strength. 3.Sitting Spinal Twist - Sit on the floor and cross your legs. Place one hand next to your hip and the other on the knee. Rotate the spine and look over one shoulder into a Sitting Spinal Twist. Inhale. Exhale back to centre. Swap sides, rotating and looking over the shoulder. Inhale. Exhale back to centre. 4.Stomach Crunches - Lie on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart. Place your hands on your thighs, across your chest or behind your ears. Slowly curl up towards your knees until your shoulders are about three inches off the floor. Hold the position for a few seconds and lower down slowly. Perform 12 stomach crunches. 5.Oblique Crunch - Lie on your back, knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart. Roll your knees to one side down to the floor. Place your hands across your chest or behind your ears. Slowly curl up towards your hips until your shoulders are about three inches off the floor. Hold the position for a few seconds and lower down slowly. Perform 12 oblique crunches and repeat on the opposite side. Medication: Start taking Schwabe's Phytolacca Berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. All the best!

Dear Lybrate User, Kindly consult a General Practicioner at the earliest. Probably you will need some investigations to see why you have excessive thirst, low weight and tiredness etc. Follow the Doctor's advice. For depression, you need to consult a Counsellor. Take care.

She is having numbness in her hand along with pain at left-hand starting from shoulder?

She is having numbness in her hand along with pain at left-hand starting from shoulder?
Numerous conditions can cause pain, numbness and tingling in the left arm. It may indicate a myocardial infarction, or heart attack. However, other conditions may be more likely to cause left-sided arm pain and numbness. The most common cause is degenerative joint disease in the cervical spine (neck). Try few home remedies for relief: - improve your circulation by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Massage your left arm before bed - improving your posture to reduce pinching on your nerves can avoid left arm pain. -rest your left arm and avoid any heavy physical activities. Your doctor may recommend pain relievers medicine to you. A cold compress can also help relieve the pain (note: if you have poor circulation, do not use cold compress). -rest and pain relievers can help treat tendinitis. Alternating hot and cold therapy is another effective way to relieve the pain. If you're first injured, applying an ice pack for the first 3 days or so can help reducing swelling by numbing pain and constricting blood vessels. After that, applying heat can increase blood flow, which may promote healing. - avoid strenuous or repetitive activities that cause pain. If conservative treatment does not help, consult your doctor/physiotherapist. In most cases, conditions causing these symptoms are not a medical emergency and respond well to conservative care methods. It is best to see a doctor/physiotherapist immediately if your pain is severe and of sudden onset. Best wishes.

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
If your knee joints are severely arthritic as per the x ray, then knee replacement is the only solution. If the arthritis is on the moderate stage, then some injections are available to increase the lubrication of the knee joints along with some oral medications and some knee strengthening exercises will also help. Revert back with your knee x rays.
