You have to follow correct diet as advised by your doctor, light exercise like walk for about 40 minutes on about 5 -6 days in a week, regular visit to your doctor for monitoring of blood sugar levels and review of medications. Get blood test for sugar in morning (fasting), 1 1/2 hours after morning principal meal and just before dinner. Show the report to your doctor and take his advice. Regular detail check up once 3 - 6 months for detection of diabetes complications if any.

Dear Lybrateuser, - To build your body you have to have a well balanced diet with more of proteins & do regular exercises including lifting weights - do not go for supplements as they may affect your kidneys & liver in the long run instead increase your protein intake in your diet - some protein rich foods are eggs, milk & milk products like cheese, paneer, yogurt, butter milk, soya products, tofu, soyabeans, legumes including pulses, peas, non veg such as seafoods, chicken, meats, nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, peanuts - add some protein food in all your meals, also have snacks in between meals - have 8-10 glasses of water per day for proper digestion - do regular exercise like jogging, swimming for 20-30 min on most days, on alternate days do moderate weight lifting which will help build muscles, also do resistance exercise like pushups, pull ups to build chest muscles.

Dear Lybrate User, The size of penis depends on four factors:- 1) HEIGHT OF THE PERSON :- Every organ of a taller person posses greater dimension than those of a shorter person. 2) TESTOSTERONE HORMONE:- Less secretion of this hormone leads to underdevelopment of sexual organs 3) SEXUAL DISEASES:- Patients suffering from Erectile dysfunction often complaints of short penis. 4) FATTY TUMMY:- With every increase of 6 kg in weight, the waistline is increased up to 2 cm. This fatty layer of abdomen conceals 2 cm of the length of penis by surrounding it. The minimum size of an erected penis required for intercourse is 3 inches. A penis is composed of three highly vascular muscles. In normal condition when an individual undergoes sexual arousal blood flow is directed towards those muscles of penis. As a result the muscles of penis gets pumped up & increase in size. This phenomenon is externally manifested as the erection of penis. The plan of action behind increasing the size of penis is to increase the amount of blood flow to those vascular muscles of penis. Normally a muscle undergoes an increase in size when it gets hypertrophied due to weight training. Weight-training leads to the pumping of blood to the muscle resulting in increased protein synthesis in the muscles. This applies to every muscles of human body & the muscles of penis are no exception. But it is quite impossible for the vascular muscles of penis to undergo any type of weight-training. Here the PENIS DEVELOPER SET comes in handy. The PENIS DEVELOPER SET helps in pumping blood to those vascular muscles without any type of weight-training. The PENIS DEVELOPER SET creates a partial vacuum around the penis which leads in rushing of blood to the vascular muscles of penis. As a result the vascular muscles of penis gets pumped. Continuous use of the PENIS DEVELOPER SET leads to hypertrophy of the muscles of penis which results in the increase in the length & width of the muscles of penis and thus the penis looks bigger. There is no specific medicine to increase the size of penis. However, you may have come across a number of gimmicking advertisement of medicines which claim to increase the size of penis. Don’t fall prey for any such advertisement because the penis won’t get bigger unless there is an increase of the size of the underlying vascular muscles of penis.

I am 21 year old! Male. I'm looking forward to improve my testosterone levels. How could that be done?
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. The normal range of testosterone levels in healthy adult males is between 280 to 1,100 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL), I can suggest some methods to improve your testosterone level and your sexual desire. Lose Weight. High-Intensity Exercise like Peak Fitness (Especially Combined with Intermittent Fasting) Consume Plenty of Zinc. Strength Training. Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels. Reduce Stress. Limit or Eliminate Sugar from Your Diet. Eat Healthy Fats. Flax seeds increase testosterone in a man's body. They also contain essential fatty acids that are necessary for maintaining libido. Flax seeds help in the proper release of all sex hormones, facilitating sexual desire. Taking one tablespoon of flax seed every day will ensure your sexual health. Take care.

I am 24 year male, last one year facing tiredness, dull face, feel some weakness, hair loss, some time motion came with dilute like gel, if once I sit avg 30 minutes then stand that time I feel giddy, little memory loss.

Go for a hemoglobin test. For hair loss add protein in your diet. The most common cause is nutritional deficiencies of iron, folic acid, and vitamins c and b12. When the hemoglobin level decreases, it can cause fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, dizziness, headaches, pale skin, brittle nails, rapid heartbeat and poor appetite. 1. Some good iron-based foods are liver, red meat, shrimp, tofu, spinach, almonds, dates, lentils, fortified breakfast cereals, almonds, oysters and asparagus. 2. You can also take an iron supplement. Let me do a private consultation r the correct dosage. 3. Eat foods rich in vitamin c like papaya, oranges, lemon, strawberries, bell peppers, broccoli, grapefruit, tomatoes and spinach. 4. You can also take vitamin c supplements after consultation, let me do a consultation. 5. Folic acid, a b-complex vitamin, is required to make red blood cells. So, a folic acid deficiency automatically leads to a low hemoglobin level. For all the above I can only suggest two best supplements cost you around 5000/- lost for 4 month, you will have a significant difference after usage and these a very help full after during periods and after pregnancy. Have a nice day. Let me suggest you the best food supplements cost you for 8000/- for 4 months, you will get a better health.

What kind of food or vegetables we should eat to get vitamin D, E and B? Apart from medicine.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What kind of food or vegetables we should eat to get vitamin D, E and B? Apart from medicine.
Milk is fortified with vitamin D, as are many ready-to-eat cereals and some brands of yogurt and orange juice. Cheese naturally contains small amounts of vitamin D. Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel are very good sources of vitamin D. Small amounts of vitamin D are also found in beef liver and egg yolks. Most plant seed oils are very good sources for Vitamin E as well. The best oil with vitamin E is Wheat germ oil. In fact, one tablespoon of this oil holds 100% of your daily Vitamin E requirements. Sunflower oil is another excellent option, as it provides over 5 mg of the vitamin, and can easily be be used for cooking. Thiamin is also known as vitamin B1. It has several important functions, including: Working with other B-group vitamins to help break down and release energy from food Keeping the nervous system healthy Good sources of thiamin Thiamin is found in most types of food. Good sources include: Vegetables – such as peas Fresh and dried fruit Eggs Wholegrain breads Some fortified breakfast cereals Liver.

My father aged about 57 years is suffering from swelling in both foot with pain. His recent uric acid level is 6.80, hb% 11.60. Kindly suggest a remedy and medication.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of swelling in the legs. Most common reason is postural and many patients develop it when they stand for a long time, but as soon as they elevate their leg up, the swelling subsides. It can happen after any injury which is a priority to diagnose and treat accordingly. Also there could be infection or inflammation which can lead to swelling. Sometimes heavy physical activity may also lead to swelling in your calf muscles. But we have to look at medical causes as well, chronic cardiac conditions can lead to swelling, any pathology which leads to low proteins in the body like deranged lft, kft etc can also lead to swelling. Hypothyroidism can also lead to generalized swelling like appearance in the body. So for accurate diagnosis we need to clinically evaluate and get appropriate tests: cbc, esr, crp, lft, kft, serum electrolytes and thyroid profile. Please get back to me should you need more information or with test results. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards
