Dear lybrate-user I hope your knee has gets better soon. It may be ligament or meniscus injury which is seen in such kind of trauma. Apply ice daily for 5 to 6 times, 10 minutes every time. Take rest for couple of days. Do not walk on painful leg. If you don't get relief by ice application, x ray and MRI of knee may be required after clinical examination depending on findings.

Both are equal. A banana will give you about 120 calories (aprox) whether you eat it directly or mash it in a shake. Aim is to enjoy your foods/Fruits. Variety increases interest.. so keep changing the menu.

All antiepileptic medicines have side effects and there is no benefit of giving medicine which is not able to control the disease, so switching over to the other is good.

Hi lybrate-user. Congrats on your niece. Sorry to hear about the problem with your sister. High blood pressure in pregnancy (pre-eclampsia) affects around one-fifth of all pregnancies, a small proportion of which continue after the baby has been born. There is a good chance that over time the blood pressure will return to normal, although at the moment no one can say if it will or if she will need some kind of treatment for life from now on. She should keep a record of her blood pressure and be in close contact with the Obstretician who delivered the baby. Please let me know should you need any help.

First to find out the right cause of you present conditions, its help to make a correct line of treatment for you. 1. Include Calories In Your Diet Everything we eat has some calorie content. So like we eat food with fewer calories to lose weight, we need to eat food that has more calories to gain weight. You need to take in more than 250 calories daily to add roughly half a kilo to your current weight. What You Need Eat foods that are rich in calories like pulses, cereals, meat, bread, rice, dry fruits, and nuts. What You Have To Do Add vegetables like French beans, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, carrots, lettuce, spinach, asparagus, pumpkins, and eggplants to your diet. Add a healthy portion of red meat to your diet too. But keep in mind not to overdo it. The aim is not add weight not cholesterol! You can even add olive oils in generous quantities to your salads. Another way to add calories to your diet is by increasing the consumption of dairy products. Don’t cut back on the fat content in your milk. Do not ask for low-fat curd at the store. Make sure you consume a full calorie dairy product. Why This Works Food rich in calories and proteins easily helps people gain and maintain weight as opposed to other foods (1). Caution Avoid fast food or cereal bars. 2. Increase The Number Of Meals Have six meals in a day – three big meals and three small. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner should be heavy and calorie-rich. A heavy dinner adds weight to your body as your metabolism is not as active when you sleep as compared to when you are awake. What You Have To Do For breakfast, go for a full bowl of cereal, toasted bread with butter, and a fruit. If you’re not a big fan of butter, then you can always pick cheese or a yummy spread of peanut butter. For snacks, have nuts and dry fruits, boiled veggies with a dollop of cream, or cheese sandwiches. You can even add some more items to your dessert tray. And, once in a while, you can give in to your taste buds and indulge in cakes, pizzas, burgers and whatever else your heart fancies. It is okay to give into your taste buds every once in a while. Why Does It Work Frequent eating every three to four hours helps maintain consistent energy levels in your body (2). Meal portions are not big, so there is no fat gain. 3. High Proteins Along With Calories Only calories won’t add to your body weight, include the right amount of proteins to your diet. Remember ladies, if you want to put on weight and look fit, you need to build muscles not flab. Top nutritionists recommend a high protein diet. What should your ideal diet be? What You Need Eggs, lean meat, fish, pulses, sprouts, and dairy products that rich sources of proteins. Fish such as tuna and mackerel are rich in oil and are one of the best ways to increase weight. Why Does It Work Proteins contain amino acids that are the founding components of muscles. These food sources will give you enough protein necessary to build and tone muscles 4. Weight Gain Supplements Another way to go about this is by including some additional supplements in your diet. In some cases, just the diet and exercise may not bring results as quickly as you expect. What You Need Whey protein is an increasingly popular supplement that you can add to your milk or smoothies. Why Does It Work In this case, adding some supplements like whey protein contributes to the body mass and aid in muscle development Workout To Gain Weight Sometimes, gaining weight isn’t just about adding a few pounds but it is also about building muscles. The best way to go about this is to start working out. Why Does It Work Developing your lean muscles as opposed to fat deposits not only makes you stronger but it also adds mass (5). This is definitely the right mix to gain weight. Here is a proper diet chart to gain weight. You can use this to maintain optimum health and stay in shape. Reasons For Being Underweight Anyone who is 15-20 percent below the normal weight, with respect to their age and height, is defined as underweight. For example, if you are a female aged between 25-50 years, and your height is 1.68 meters, then your weight should ideally be 59 kgs. However, when the body weight falls to 50 kg (15%) and 47 kg (20%), it is termed as underweight. A woman weighing 59 kgs should have a Body Mass Index of 20.90 kg/m. As the weight drops, the BMI comes down to 18. 8 (-15%), which is still within the normal range or 17.7 (-20%), which is below normal. For a man aged between 25-50 years with an average height of 1.76 meters, a normal body weight with healthy BMI should be 70 kg. Reduction of weight to 15-20% will also reduce the Body Mass Index. For instance, the reduction of weight to 60 kg and 57 kg can result in BMI of 19.4 and 18.4 respectively. It is very important to understand the reason behind a drastic loss in weight since it can have both psychological and physical reasons. 1. Hyperthyroidism The hormone thyroxin produced by the body is often regarded as the ‘conductor’ or the ‘orchestra of the body’. If the thyroxin levels are normal, then metabolism, height, and weight are within the limits. If the function of thyroid gland is disrupted, then the body’s metabolism, heartbeat, and body temperature become deranged, and there is pronounced weight loss Overactive thyroid or Hyperthyroidism is associated with symptoms like goiter or a lump in the throat, exophthalmos (bulging eyeballs), high temperature, excessive sweating, nervousness, fatigue, increased heart rate and weight loss despite eating properly In case of hyperthyroidism, the doctor will ask you to do a blood test to detect the thyroid hormone levels in the blood. 2. Cancer Malignancy or cancer can cause rapid weight loss, fatigue, lack of appetite, nausea and inability to gain weight, Since cancer has serious repercussions it is important to consult the doctor who will do a thorough diagnosis and suggest a prognosis for the same. 3. Tuberculosis Tuberculosis is accompanied by weight loss, coughing, night sweats, and extreme fatigue. If the drastic weight loss is due to tuberculosis you need immediate treatment. Tuberculosis is a curable disease if diagnosed at the early stages. 4. HIV Aids HIV Aids actually prevents weight gain. If medical tests confirm HIV positive, you need to take necessary medications, and make some diet and lifestyle changes to improve your health. An early diagnosis can help cure this disease effectively. 5. Kidney Disease Kidney problems cause in change in urination. You may attend the restroom several times, but still you feel that urine was not sufficient. There will be fluid retention, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, skin rash and itching, metallic taste in the mouth, and smell of ammonia in the breath. The lack of appetite with fever triggers weight loss 6. Medicines Sometimes antibiotics lead to medication toxicity and lower your appetite Due to lack of appetite, you deprive yourself from important nutrients that help in development and maintenance. So medicines can be one of the reasons behind acute weight loss. You have to check with your doctor or pharmacist if you have started a new medicine and are experiencing weight loss. 7. Eating Disorders, Enzyme Deficiency, Hereditary Factors, Depression etc.
