General tiredness and unhealthy feeling may be due to various factors. Uncontrolled bp and/or diabetes, underlying complications for example blockages in heart, another condition like hypothyroidism or simply lack of fitness. You need to consult any physician and find out the exact cause. It may not be possible to advise online in such cases.

Water may be reduce your risk for certain cancers. Research shows that staying hydrated can reduce risk of colon cancer by 45 percent, bladder cancer by 50 percent, and possibly reduce breast cancer risk, too.

Water prevents migraine headaches. In a study there were two groups of migraine sufferers: one took a placebo and the others were told to drink 1.5 liters of water in addition to their usual daily intake. At the end of two weeks, the water group had experienced 21 fewer hours of pain than those in the placebo group, as well as a decrease in pain intensity.
Water can improve brainpower. The brain needs a lot of oxygen to function at optimum levels, so drinking plenty of water ensures that it?s getting all it needs. Drinking eight to 10 cups of water per day can improve your levels of cognitive performance by as much as 30 percent.

Dear doctor, if one's good cholesterol like HDL reduces because of anxiety and confusion, what will happen to his health?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Hdl is needed in our body. It acts like a grease between organs so that to avoid friction and produces less heat which helps to maintain normal body temperature. It is especially found in abdominal areas between all digestive organs. So if it gets reduced. The opposite will happen like organs won't be able to show its efficiency and other heart and vascular functions gets disturbed. And the bad cholesterol tends to get deposited in all blood vessels hampering the blood flow. So ldl (bad cholesterol) is to lessened. Hope you understood. I tried my best to make you understand in simple terms. If you have any more queries, then please let me know. Take care.:)

My 15 days new born girl has been diagnosed with 2 holes in heart.6 mm asd and 5 mm vsd. Please suggest what should I do

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello thanks for the query asd upto 8 mm closes spontaneously in 80% of cases. Even vsd can close but it depends upon its location whether perimembranous, subaortic, muscular or inlet. Vsd usually gets symptomatic at around 1-2 months of age like difficult feeding, repeated respiratory infection. Serial echo will be needed to see whether size is decreasing and its affect on pulmonary pressure. Surgery may be needed. I request you to attach the echo report so that I better able to help you out. Regards.

MBBS
General Physician,
you may be having deficiency of vitamin D . if you press the sternum it pains is indicative of vitamin D deficiency which helps absorption of calcium for formation of bone .you can have exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun which converts the eargosterol pigment which is present in the skin to vitamin D.you should consult a medical specialist. for assessment and further management.

He had a serious heart attack at last week. Now he is fine. What is the chance of 2nd attack ?

MD - General Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Noida
These factors increase your risk for another heart attack: inactive lifestyle being overweight or obese high cholesterol high blood sugar, if you have diabetes high blood pressure smoking excess stress metal stents, devices placed into an artery to keep the vessel open, have been used in lieu of balloon angioplasty to treat patients with coronary artery disease (cad) for about 15 years, due to their better long-term patency. Nonetheless, with conventional (" bare metal") stents, there may be a disease recurrence rate of at least 20% to 30% due to scar tissue formation within the stent. Much research has been done to try to prevent this scar tissue formation. In the past decade, newer metal stents coated with medication to prevent scar tissue formation have become widely available. These stents have reduced the recurrence (" restenosis") rate of coronary artery disease to well under 10%. These percentages are vlid only if you take proper precautions to avoid risk factors for heart attack as mentioned above and you keep taking your prescribed medicines regularly.
