Dear many people take body building or muscle mass building supplements these days to have an attractive physique in a short span of time. Testosterone, creatine, andro hormone supplements, glutamine supplements, fat burners are some of the popular bodybuilding supplements. Boosting the testosterone levels causes serious side effects like hair loss, breast enlargement in males (gynecomastia), prostate enlargement, acne, testicular atrophy and increased estrogen levels. Creatine is already present in our body therefore a healthy person does not require its additional dose. The excess of creatine in our body can cause many side effects. One major side effect is that creatine absorbs water from the other body organs and deposits into muscle cells. As a result, there is lack of water supply in the other parts of the body and suffers dehydration. Excess creatine also causes muscle cramps, kidney stones, ulcer, diarrhea, anxiety, stomach upset, headache etc. Excess intake of glutamine supplement may result in manic depression, stomach upset, nausea, lack of concentration, body ache and it often affects the brain as well. Higher dose of thermogenic supplements leads to heart palpitation, nervousness and behavioral changes. Whey protein side effects include allergic reactions, liver damage and kidney stones and excess dose of multivitamins cause headaches, muscle ache and dehydration remember that natural way is the best way to improve the muscle mass and strength. There is no need to take any supplements to gain muscle mass if you follow proper diet and weight training.

Please note that your creatnine is slightly raised and non of much concerned. However you need to avoid non-veg items/reduce its intake. Also fast-food/junk foods to be reduced. Take balance diet Sufficient water to eliminate the body toxins DO not sit for too long at a stretch - do walking daily in morning. At this point of time I do not suggest you any medicines I do recommend you to go for a blood test again after 2 weeks and get back to me for (Complete blood count/Kidney function test).

My 4 years old son has psoriasis in nails and foot. Sometimes in aggravates, we didn't find any improvement on various medications using salicylic creams, moisturizing creams, lotions, vitamin H, E syrups etc etc. My personal observation is that when his foot cracks aggravates he falls sick with fever and cough and takes some antibiotic and it improves foots. Regarding nails we have seen that antifungal creams has shown improvement. We used it based info from a blog. Please suggest best diagnostic and treatment.

Hi, following are a few things I would advise for your son. (a) a mediterranean diet rich in whole grain cereals, leafy greens and fresh fruits. Especially, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, green peas, lentils etc all help in this condition. (b) make sure, his diet is a low protein one. Include healthy proteins like lean meat and fresh water fishes. Avoid salty fishes including prawns, shell fish etc all. (c) evaluate food items and also environments he is allergic to, and try that those triggers are best avoided. (d) stay well hydrated. Fresh fruit juice including that of sweet lime, lemon, oranges, apple etc all help. (e) avoid hot, spicy, chilly, sour etc all diet that trigger inflammatory conditions. (f) avoid high calorie, sweets, greasy, oily and fried food stuff including fast foods. (g) topically (external) use 0.5% aloe vera gel two to three times daily. (h) a good multi-vitamin supplement with zinc & folic acid helps. Administer as directed by your paediatrician. (i) 5 ml of dabur honitus taken internally, two to three times daily, helps ameliorate cold & cough conditions. Hope the above-mentioned helps. Take care and all the very best.

Eat a high-fiber diet. Get insoluble and soluble fiber. Limit foods that are high in fat. Choose lean meats. Incorporate probiotics into your diet. Eat on schedule. Stay hydrated. 1. avoid caffeine found in coffee,tea , chocolate,cola,and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. . [Use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, TVs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.
