Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus can only be controlled, there is no cure. Treatment has to continue for life time. Depending on type of diabetes, either oral anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections are given. In addition there has to be strict dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight and improve internal insulin action. Thanks.

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to continue taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food Repeat you lipid profile every 3-4 months and once you control your cholesterol you can decrease and stop the medication slowly good luck.

Dear lybrate-user, If you and your wife are suffering from similar problems, it is most likely to be the food you are eating, as that will be common for you two. Go on a pure veg, boiled food diet for few days. Eat lots of vitamins in fruit. Apply glycerin on areas that have dryness or blisters to help. Regards.

If you feel your stomach is big, you mean abdominal girth which is on higher side. Reduce it by exercise like cycling, some yoga and meditation and eating right food, reduce only 5 kgs which will not be difficult, stop sugar and fats and take salt as bare minimum, eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Your heart pain may reduce by all of above. If any doubts remain unanswered, do get back here.

It is not harmful if you cook in a pressure cooker because of intense heat inside. Plus after cooking we take out and keep in other vessel. All mental diseases are very rare it does not affect everybody.

For last three years I am facing chest pain. Pain near my heart continuously. I also have acidity problem now and then. I consulted 4 different doctors in this period. I also got my ECG done before 2 year that was normal. I consulted to heart specialist also but every Dr. said that you do not have any heart problem but this pain is due to anxiety and acidity. I do not know how can it be anxiety. I do not think too much about anything and I do not have any fear or anything like this. I do not smoke. I am not alcoholic. I am not fat. I am 29 year old boy. My height is 5'5" and weight is 62 kg. The period in which I take medicine as prescribed by Dr. I feel normal but as soon as I left the medicine chest pain starts again even without acidity. I am very confused why I feel this pain. Can it be angina? I want to get rid off this pain. Pls help. Thnx in advance.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Im obese I way 100 pound and my hight is 5" 9 inch.now I eat a hell lot of junk food exercise less. And also remain quite depressed most of the times. Now sir/man. The thing that happened was that I experienced a sudden chest pain so bad that I fell from mh bed clutching my chest. But thought that it might be caused due to some nerve damage or something but that pain in chest has not gone in even 3 month now. I have had an ecg and blood test only. Blood test shows cholesterol of 240 .i have gone to 8 doctors. And all are just dismiising my claims. And say its probably an inflammation. Even mg Y family now is not siding with my pain and say that im faking it. Please doctors I need some advise .i do not know what to do. Should I go to a hospital. Or a cardiologist. I have shown one but all diss me due to young age. What must I do please advise step wise.

No details about various test reports. You should see a Consulting Physician for a detail one time check up to explore all possibilities. TMT Stress test will also to be done. There could be many different causes. If everything turns out to be normal you must adopt strict life style changes like regular exercise, strict diet, avoid sugar and oily food. And periodical check up from same physician as a follow up. Your ideal body weight should be 78 Kg Maximum.
