I have black spots on my back. Can you suggest me what can i do?

Ayurveda,
I have black spots on my back. Can you suggest me what can i do?
You need to do two things for this 1. Improve your skin health by having lots of fresh fruits, preferably the red ones like pomegranate, apples. Papaya etc. Completely avoid oily food 2. Regular scrub for your back. You can try this home made scrub - rice powder 10 tsp, orange/lemon peel powder 10 tsp, fenugreek powder 2 tsp. Make a paste apply it over the back. Scrub it using a loofah for about 5 mins and then wash it off.

General Physician,
My Glomerular filtration rate shows 120 where normal. Rate is 90 .Any proper way to bring it to. Normal.
According to the National Kidney Foundation, normal results range from 90 to 120 mL/min/1.73 m2. Older people will have lower than normal GFR levels, because GFR decreases with age. You have to do a full RFT and it is not clear why you have done this test.

Underweight is a term describing a person whose body weight is considered too low to be healthy. The definition usually refers to people with a body mass index (bmi) of under 18.5 a weight 15% to 20% below that normal for their age and height group. Low weight may be due to improper diet, reduced assimilation from intestine, illness, metabolism, genetics etc. Thus first we have to rule out any such condition, with this have a healthy diet with more proteins (legumes, eggs, fish, lean meat, vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water and go for regular exercise. A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will definitely help you a lot.

I am having huge cough since a month. I continuously cough a lot. Also I'm a heavy smoker. Please suggest what should be done?

Pulmonologist, Jaipur
Having cough for a month; he needs a check up from the local tb clinic for sputum examination for tb bacilli and other tests. Pl. Be fast and take him to the nearest govt. Tb clinic. Not necessarily he will have tuberculosis but the approach is a necessity. Till then ask him to use handkerchief when ever he coughs for preventing spread of disease in his nears and dears till he is cleared ok from the tb clinic/hospital. Now for you ; second hand smoking is a big cause of respiratory diseases in family inmates and lung cancer is associated with 80% smokers. It has little treatment once it develops. Besides this similar is with copd. See how important it is to give up smoking for you. So quit smoking today. A qualified chest physician in your area will help you to quit smoking after assessing you properly. With a strong will I know lot people just quit smoking in the first effort. God bless you.

I have pain in joints due to uric acid. what can I do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. There are ways to keep your uric acid value in body to low levels. General recommendations are: - decreasing intake of red meat, alcohol, rice in your diet and other purine rich sources - also increase your water intake so that uric acid is excreted from body well. - keeping your weight to normal levels will also help you. - intake of fresh fruits, citrus fruits and cherries has been implicated in reducing uric acid values in the body as well. Nowadays there is a medication by the name of febuxostat which helps in lowering uric acid levels in body but kindly check out that it suits your body. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
