I'am 25 year old, usually not take proper diet. Didn't had any health issue in past but last month I was having some chest pain in my chest while deep breath, cough, sneeze etc. As per my doctor i'am suffering form tuberculosis pleural effusion. He confirmed this by analysing x-ray and pleural fluid (approx 1litr fluid was collected from my chest) in which my A.D.A level was 83U/L. He prescribed me to take 4 akurit4 tablets (containing front line drug to cure tb) with empty stomach, to be taken before at least 2 hours from having breakfast. After 1 month of starting medicine course I did an ultrasound in which it is found that there is still 560 ml fluid present in my chest which will drain automatically as per doctor. Although i'am not having any serious pain but I have some query's in which I want expert opinions and my query's are -: 1: Is tuberculosis pleural effusion is communicable disease, should I need to stay away from my family and friends if so than for how much time? 2: Is it enough to conclude that someone is suffering from tuberculosis pleural effusion by only seeing x-ray and testing pleural fluid (by checking ADA level). 3: The drug i'am currently taking is good enough to treat this disease? 4: How much will it take to drain this fluid (560 ml) naturally? 5: Should I need do some test to confirm which tuberculosis is this, whether it is normal or mdr or any other before any further treatment? If there is any suggestion or prescription by your side please feel free to share. Please help me by answering the above query's if you can. I will be thankful for your kindness. Eagerly waiting for reply Thanks in advance.

TB is a communicable disease can spread to persons in close contact yes you should stay away from close contact of your family and friends till your cultures are negative. Yes composition of plueral effesion can be suggestive of tb, X ray is also very sensitive to rule out tuberculosis. Yes drugs are good enuogh follow the advise of your pulmonologist 300-500 ml fluid is mild collection of fluid it will absorb automatically in few months. Sputum culture ansd sensitivity ,sputum for afb ,TB gold should be done My suggestion is make a pdf file of all your invesstigation take pictures of all xrays, medicines you are on and get a full review ,we can not treat a serious problem just by making assumptions. IF you can not then follow advise of your respiratory medicine doctor take the full couse of medicine, TB will take months to settle down.

Dear User Blood pressure is caused due to various reasons and its effect is also lasting and devastating as of now which you suffer is headache due to high bp leading to irritability. You need a proper treatment for permanent restoration of your health. For now you can use Belladonna 30 twice a day for 5 and consult back with your diurnal bp monitoring for 5 days data.

Dear Lybrate User, *Any kind of physical trauma—surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu—can cause temporary hair loss. *Pregnancy is one example of the type of physical stress that can cause hair loss (that and hormones). *Overdoing vitamin A-containing supplements or medications can trigger hair loss. *If you don't get enough protein in your diet, your body may ration protein by shutting down hair growth. *caused by a combo of genes and male sex hormones, usually follows a classic pattern in which the hair recedes at the temples, leaving an M-shaped hairline. *Heredity :“If you come from a family where women started to have hair loss at a certain age, then you might be more prone to it, *Emotional stress is less likely to cause hair loss than physical stress, but it can happen, for instance, in the case of divorce, after the death of a loved one, or while caring for an aging parent. More often, though, emotional stress won't actually precipitate the hair loss. It will exacerbate a problem that's already there. *Almost one in 10 women aged 20 through 49 suffers from anemia due to an iron deficiency (the most common type of anemia), which is an easily fixable cause of hair loss.

I am 44years old, past 1 year i am affected by cholesterol, but BP is normal. What can I do.?

I am 44years old, past 1 year i am affected by cholesterol, but BP is normal. What can I do.?
high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. you should be avoid bad habits ,fatty meal/oily foods/junk/fast foods/alcohol/smoking/noo-veg. take whole grain meal/oats/dalia/green veg./fruits/juice/ use garlic . you can take also cap. ecosprin gold-10 at night. and consult cardiologist.

You have borderline high bp, reduce salt but I am not suggesting a salt free food. Avoid tinned foods as salt is a preservative. Avoid other packed foods also like chips, namkeem, street foods. Use minimum oils for cooking. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Reduce stress by exercise and yoga and meditation. Take a tablet of safe betablocker like metoprolol 25 mg twice daily. Get back here with progress reports only after observations, after 2 weeks. Get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum.

It seems like you have an anxiety issues, which may have triggered due to some incidents. Consider these suggestions. -first, slow down. When we are anxious our thoughts race, our hearts pounds, our breathing accelerates. So at the first sign of it see what all you can do to intentionally slow things down. -anxiety lives in our minds and often manifests in the body that's why you are feeling dryness of your mouth, fast heart beats, racing thoughts etc. So take a few moments to connect with your five senses, it will help bring you back into the moment. -be mindful while doing simple tasks, like walking, eating, reading, cooking etc. Being mindful helps remind us we are in control of our choices. - be aware of your thought process. When you have a negative thought, ask yourself" is this thought true? chances are your worst fears are not the reality of what's happening. - be aware of your triggers. If you know your triggers, you can prepare soothing practices better. When the mind feels prepared, it's more at ease. Take care.

A healthy diet low in salt and fats along with yoga, meditation and exercise are very good for clearing blockages in heart but in certain cases bypass is essential.
