Why are my feet burning all the time. My reports are S.Uric acid 6.0 Blood sugar 87 s.cholesterol 169.

Why are my feet burning all the time.
My reports are S.Uric acid 6.0
Blood sugar 87
s.cholesterol 169.
Hi, all these reports are normal. Burning feet syndrome can be inherited, or it can be caused by pressure being put on the nerves. Links also exist between this syndrome and diseases such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis; links are also believed to exist between this syndrome and vitamin b (specifically pantothenic acid) deficiencies and renal failure. Another cause could be plantar fasciitis which is an inflammation (irritation and swelling with presence of extra immune cells) of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot that causes heel pain and disability. Medication: need to find out the cause of burning. Meantime, take becosule (b-complex)/ 1 cap. Once daily for 3 months only. Revert.

Yes it is possible to start homeopathic medicine for blood pressure but don't stop the allopathic medicine at once. In order to get rid off allopathic medicine its dose should be tapered and then stop when using homeopathic medicine.

Heart disease begins in youth

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Heart disease begins in youth
Autopsy studies of young people who died in accidents have shown that by the late teens, heart blockages, the kind of lesions that cause heart attacks and strokes are in the process of developing.

The best opportunity to prevent heart disease is to focus on children and adolescents and start the preventive process early. More than a third of children and adolescents are overweight or obese.

The first signs that men are at higher risk of heart disease than women appear during the adolescent years despite the fact that boys lose fat and gain muscle in adolescence, while girls add body fat.

Between the ages of 11 and 19, levels of triglycerides, a type of blood fat associated with cardiovascular disease, increases in the boys and drops in the girls. Levels of hdl cholesterol, the" good" kind that helps keep arteries clear, go down in boys but rise in girls. Blood pressure increases in both, but significantly more in boys. Insulin resistance, a marker of cardiovascular risk, which is lower in boys at age 11, rises until the age of 19 years.

Any protection that the young women have for cardiovascular protection can be wiped out by obesity and hence obesity in girls should be handled on priority.

Inhale steam at least for 5 minutes morning and evening, do not swallow the phlegm, spit it out, do salt water gargles, drink a warm water glass of water + lemon juice + a spoon of honey everyday in morning, this increases immunity to fight illness. You can take anti allergic tablet like phenargan at bed time. Get back after a week, if no improvement, some investigations will be suggested to rule out infection.

Hello, the most healthiest of all nuts are almonds, followed by walnuts and pistachios. But one should always include nuts in their diet in a recommended amount. Cashew nuts have a lower fat content than most other nuts and is heart-healthy monounsaturated fats which is considered to be a good fat. One should have 4 to 5 cashew nuts every day.
