I have recently picked up exercising (its been 2 days). I never did it before. I used to be 58 kg. I gained 14 kg in last 20 months.

Hi light headedness can be due to exercising without having anything in the morning. You need to have 2-3 energy biscuits and then start your workout. About your wt gain ,only exercise will not help you ,you have to take a proper diet and incorporate a healthy lifestyle. Regards.

Most commonly you must be having a glass power and as I see your age is 40, you might have started developing presbyopia. That is age related weakness for near vision. You will require glasses for that.

You are suffering from high myopia. High myopia is degenerative condition which can cause various changes in retina. There is no proven role of medicine or food i'm improving it. Wearing uv protective glasses prevents eye of harmful rays. Eating fruits, green vegetables and fish may help, but no proven role in improving or protecting eye.

Sir, My ankles are having some pain during jogging and my eyes having some difficulties in watching in sun light!

Sir, My ankles are having some pain during jogging and my eyes having some difficulties in watching in sun light!
Hi considering your age there shouldn't be a serious condition, both ankle and eye are separate issues. Eyes you should get check, it could be due to dry eyes, conjunctivitis or corneal problem. In older age it could be due to cataract. But you should not worry much about it, use a quality sunglasses for now and see if it get settle. For ankle, you can check if your shoes are of proper size and type as per your arch alignment. If you have foot alignment issue then orthotic insoles can help. In both the cases vitamin d3 supplement may help.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, there are multiple reasons for headache. Since you have already consulted neuro, ophtho and your bp is under control, see if there are other causes for it. Are you sleeping well? are you eating well? are you drinking enough water? are you a caffeine addict? also rule out sinusitis.

Lybrate-user, the condition being described looks like he had an attack of hypoglycemia. Did you check his blood glucose level then? if blood glucose level goes below 70 mg or lower like <60 mg or even lower, patient may get such attacks. It is important to achieve a strict blood glucose control, but equally important thing is not to allow episodes of hypoglycemia. Severe hypoglycemia can be very dangerous, particularly in elderly persons. If you have a glucometer at home, it is better to check glucose level. If it is low, then it is essential to give glucotabs 2 or 3 tabs cor candy, sugar ar some sweet etc can help. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

Dear lybrate-user:- as per your complaints, you r suffering from simple myopia of -1.0d. Surely laser surgery is better options than speck because we get rid of glasses after surgery. Laser surgery should be advised in myopia of high diaptor {>3 or4 to -20.0d}. Lasik laser surgery corrected vision may be approximate to recquired full correction. Any surgery may have its own complication also.

I am 28 year old male with dry eyes being most prominent problem I an facing post my lasik surgery 7 months ago. How to correct this problem?

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology

Dry eyes is the most common complication post LASIK surgery. Due to surgery the nerves get severed, which causes decrease tear production. Usually in most cases it recovers 6 months to 1 yr. Till then use artificial tears like genteal dps 4 times a day. Use goggles outside. Avoid hot and dusty climate. Sometimes may be due to pre existing dry eyes before surgery.

Unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. You can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive lasik laser surgery lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not.

Recently I visited an eye care hospital and the Dr prescribed me HFA, Pachymetry and Color photo tests. Dr. Says that result is ok, but i have to undergo another test of OCT.RNFL BE. What is your opinion?

Ophthalmologist,
These tests are for glaucoma. If you are suspected to have glaucoma you have get these checkups done. They are modern tests where we can identify glaucoma at a very early stage even.

Foot Care & Eye Care In Diabetes

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Foot Care & Eye Care In Diabetes

Diabetes can wreak havoc on the eye and the foot. Proper care is necessary in order to refrain from any serious consequences. It can damage the blood vessels and the nerves of the feet resulting in numbness and permanent disability. Some of the alarming foot symptoms include bruises, cuts, cracked skin and hard spots. Some of the common measures that need to be taken for foot include checking the temperature sensation of the foot by immersing it in hot water, drying the feet gently in between the toes and using agents such as lotion, lanolin, and petroleum jelly.

  • Some of the other preventive measure includes cutting the nails when they are young and straight to ensure no injury to the foot takes place. It should be ensured the toe is not touched by the nail of the toe. A pumice stone can be used to get rid of the corns immediately after a bath. No medicated pads or sharp razors should be utilised to cut corns. The feet should be soaked in warm water before trimming nails.
  • A shoe should be put on at all times to save the feet. The shoe sole should be thoroughly checked for foreign objects such as stones and nails to ensure that the foot is not hurt. Tight shoes should be strictly avoided in order to refrain from soreness and blisters. Dry and clean socks should be put up to ensure the foot is clean. For people living in cold area, wearing thick socks should be practised. This will help the foot protect from cold. Finally, a doctor should be called in case there are any visible signs of swelling, redness, cracks, pain or sensation of burning.
  • Too much blood sugar can cause harm to the eye in four ways: It can cause damage to the retina, lens, optic nerve and vitreous gel. There could be serious repercussions of diabetes to the eye including low vision and complete loss of vision. Diabetes blocks the retina and is capable of cutting off the total supply of oxygen.
  • Some of the common symptoms of retina related problems include double vision, a pressure in one eye, problems in corner vision, flashing lights, pain in the eye, blank spots etc. A simple check up by an oculist can reveal any eye problems related to diabetes.
  • An ophthalmologist can treat the diabetes-related eye problem by medicine that blocks the protein responsible for fluid leakage and blood vessel growth. He can also go for laser treatment to treat macular edema. Even scatter laser treatments are also used for this purpose. If all else fails a doctor chooses to perform a procedure known as vitrectomy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please get her retina checked for diabetic retinopathy in a good eye hospital and initiate the treatment. Plus her blood sugar also should be very well controlled. She needs immediate retinal examination. I hope you understand. Take care.
