What is a best exercise a 77 year old can do on a daily basis. Especially on scorching summer months I am having diabetes for the last 10 years also having blood pressure. Both under control by taking medicines and insulin 16 units one time in the morning.

Hye. Thank you for your query. Since you are new to exercise - brisk walking or yoga is the ideal exercise to begin with. Never workout if your blood pressure or sugar levels are very high. Avoid going for workout on a empty stomach or after a heavy meal.

I used razor also to shave my legs and arms and also excessive dandruff. I got blood test done. My sugar (fasting) was 96, hb was 9 and uric acid was 5.4. What could be the reason for this itching?

To, confirm DM you need to have blood sugar fasting above 126 mg% ,pp above 200 mg% and HbA1C >6.4% Your HB is low so you could be having nutritional anemia and may need iron and Bcomplex vitamin supplements for may be more than 3 months. Regarding your itching you could be having infection on skin after using razor. You need to show some clinician or skin specialist regarding your skin problem.

Dear,Masturbation is a very common behavior among men and women. Having a sexual pleasure or orgasm without a partner of opposite sex is called ?Solosex? or ?Auto erotic sexual behavior. When a person feels this kind of solo orgasm in awakened state, then its called ?Masturbation. Masturbation habit slowly kills the physical, mental and sexual health because masturbation is an unnatural and abnormal activity. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

I want to ask that doing masturbation is good for our health or not plzz tell me.
Twice per week is healthy. Excess leads to side effects. Let us start with the advantages of masturbation: 1. Masturbation ease tension in both male and female. 2. Masturbation makes a male or female feel light. 3. Masturbation prevents a guy from being sick due to too much sperm deposit. 4. Masturbation helps in producing an imaginary sex image in both male and female. 5. Masturbation reduces the rate of a male or female horny feelings. 6. Masturbation prevents a man from having sex without a woman. 7. Masturbation satisfies both male and female sexually. 8. Masturbation reduces sexually transmitted diseases. 9. Masturbation preserves a virgin guy (based on what some people believes). 10. Masturbation cools an aroused body. 11. Masturbation is the best way of a collection of sperm when a running a sperm count analysis. The disadvantage of masturbation 1. Masturbation is a serious sin in the holy bible. 2. Masturbation makes the penis or dick to get weak when been used in the body of a woman. 3. Masturbation makes a penis develop too many veins thereby making it unattractive. 4. Masturbation causes infections in females. 5. Masturbation weakens the hormone responsible for producing sperm. 6. Masturbation makes a man moan, suffer and starve for real sex during the period of masturbating. 7. It reduces the period of ejaculation in men. 8. Masturbation weakens the womb in females thereby not enabling the womb to carry a child which leads to abortion (miscarriages most of the time). 9. It sometimes causes infertility in women. 10. It causes cancer in women. 11. Masturbation can make a woman lose her virginity. 12. It can cause sperm disability which leads to abnormal children (in fewer cases).

Dust Mite Allergy

MMed, MBBS, DAA
Allergist/Immunologist, Chennai
Dust Mite Allergy

A hypersensitive reaction to immune system against any particular substance (allergen) is called as allergy. Dust mite allergy refers to hypersensitive reaction caused by exposure to tiny bugs (too small to see with naked eyes) in the dust in our house and premises. These dust mites survive in warm and humid conditions (as in bedding items and furniture in the home) and eat dead skin cells of humans and animals. 

Usually, individual mite has ability to produce more than 20 of waste droppings (specific protein) every day that spreads in the environments and settles down with the dust while their ability to cause allergic symptoms remain constant even after they die. The ideal environment for dust mites is when there is a temperature about ≥ 70 F and humidity ranging between 75 to 80 percent. 

 Along with the live mites, dust also contains faeces, excretions and decayed bodies of dust mites. A specific protein in the mites is responsible for allergic reaction causing nasal inflammation, which triggers further symptoms.

The immune system produces specific antibodies as a defense against foreign substances (allergens) to protect the body from harmful allergens. In case of allergic reactions, as usual, the body produces antibodies against allergens (even if they are not harmful) and leads to an inflammatory response.

Most allergies have some common signs and symptoms. Allergy to dust mites harms nasal passage making it inflamed, causing several clinical manifestations. Common symptoms of dust mite allergy may include:

  • Rhinorrhea (persistent discharge of mucus from nose)
  • Sneezing
  • Itching sensation in the eyes, nose and throat
  • Reddening of eyes
  • Swelling around the eyes
  • Accumulation of excess mucus in the throat (postnasal drip)
  • Cough and congestion
  • Facial pain and pressure
  • Rubbing nose (especially in children)

In chronic cases, one may experience a severe asthma attack that causes:

Diagnosis of dust mite allergy may begin with discussing with your doctor about the typical symptoms, severity, onset of symptoms and its duration, pets at home, etc. This will help the doctor to further advice other tests, such as allergy tests (to identify the specific allergen) and some blood examinations, examining the body for allergy and assessment of family history..

Immunotherapy (allergy shots or allergy drops under the tongue/ Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT): When other treatment approaches fail to deliver the results, immunotherapy may be considered. It involves a series of allergen shots with gradually increasing doses (about two shots a week for about 3 months) and then a single shot for every four weeks, for about five years. This helps to build up immunity against specific allergens.

Benefits of SLIT:

  • Effective in children in terms of treating the symptoms of rhinitis, asthma, and further worsening of symptoms.
  • Effective in preventing future asthma
  • Safe and easy to administer
  • Can be administered at home
  • No need of syringes and needle
