Dear lybrate-user, your dad seems to have vasomotor rhinitis which in general means that his body reacts to temperature change on body surface. Avoid taking bath with very hot or cold water. He can use anti allergy tablets with steroid nasal spray. Regards.

Hello Madam, Generalised body pains can be due to many reasons- like Anemia, low calcium and Vitamin D levels, hypothyroidism, lack of proper nutrition in your diet leading to multivitamin deficiency etc. You can get a complete blood picture, calcium and vitamin D levels, TSH levels checked and consult a general physician. Eat a proper well balanced and healthy diet. You could take a multi vitamin tablet every day too. I hope this helps you Thank you.

Hello dear 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For diabetic person or for a normal healthy individual, no single oil is perfect. It is better to use two or three different oils. Like for making vegetables one type (ground nut, or sun flower or saflower or soy oil) for tadaka use ghee, for salads olive oil etc. Combination of oils is always good. Thanks.

Thyroid should stay in control with regular treatment. Do not self medicate or suddenly stop hypothyroid treatment. Not treating thyroid can give rise to many effects eg. Obesity, lethargy. For the dry eyes which can be again observed in hypothyroidism please get screened for any other underlying auto immune disorder and start eye drops for dry eyes based on type of dry eyes .You will need an opthalmologist and an endocrinologist to help you out in this regard. Thanks.

Hello, My current uric acid level is high based on blood test.

The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Ghaziabad
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus. I wont write long list of do's and dont's. Its simple things which you can follow in your everyday life.

1. Avoid eating following food items. Potato, rice, corn, corn flakes, market made cereal, muesli (contains added sugar), oily stuff such as parantha, poori & pakode.

2. Take a brisk walk for at least 30 kin per day preferably in morning. Brisk walking means at a pace when you start getting tired and sweaty.

3. Weight reduction is very important. Of you r overweight join some cardio program or swimming or jogging or walking to reduce weight

4. Take small meals frequently. Instead of having large meals at long intervals.

5. Ideally blood sugar should be checked daily but thats not possible in our scenario so once a week or twice a month is f9.

6. Get your eyes checked regularly for signs of diabetic retinopathy. Visit ophthalmologist as soon as you are diagnosed with type diabetes. You will be shocked to know that a large number of diabetics are diagnosed by their ophthalmologists

7. Diabetes have an effect on kidneys and nerves also so get renal function test every 6 monthly or so.

8. Foot care is very imp in diabetes because even a trivial injury in. Leg can become gangrene. Use silicone sole footwear available at medical shops. Never go outside with bare foot.

10. Regular medicine intake is very imp

11. Lastly diabetes is a lifestyle disorder. Sedentary lifestyle makes things worse and result into syndrome x which apart from diabetes also includes increased lipids in blood and hypertension. Adopt an active life style.

Eating fruit and veg can boost your FERTILITY

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Eating fruit and veg can boost your FERTILITY

The study found couples struggling to conceive eat less fruit and vegetables than people who have just become parents.
Men who want to become fathers should eat their greens
Fruit and vegetables are good for male fertility because they contain compounds that could protect sperm from damage.
The minerals zinc, found in beans and pulses, and selenium, found in eggs, help keep testosterone levels high.
The antioxidants found in fruits help protect sperm from cellular damage and keep them strong and speedy - just what they need to race through the fallopian tubes and fertilize the egg.

Zinc deficiency can actually reduce testosterone levels; for men with low testosterone - zinc was shown to raise testosterone and increase fertility. Zinc deficiencies are some of the most common deficiencies found in both men and women. Sources of zinc are sesame seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, and green peas. Find vitamin a - which is important in preventing sluggish sperm - infertility foods such as leafy greens, carrots, red peppers, and apricots, to name a few. Get vitamin c - which is critical to sperms motility and viability - in papaya, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, oranges, kiwifruit, tomatoes, grapefruit, and broccoli, among other foods. And get vitamin e - which helps keep sperm vital - from vegetable oils. Fruits and veggies such as leafy greens, beans, and most fruits contain folic acid - a b vitamin with antioxidant properties that's crucial for keeping sperm free of chromosomal abnormalities. Pomegranate juice: another powerful player in antioxidant. Foods rich in l-carnitine are nuts, seeds, and many vegetables, including artichokes, asparagus, beet greens, broccoli, brussels sprouts, collard greens, garlic, mustard greens, okra, and parsley. This amino acid is a necessary nutrient for sperm cells to function normally.

Amla powder along with some other ingredients is used by people with diabetes. Amla basically gives a good deal of vit c. But realy no idea as to what role it has in treatment of diabetes. Most often these herbal remedies are used as supportive treatments along with proper anti diabetes drugs. Unless proper anti diabetes drug is taken blood sugar levels will not come down.

I understand your concern about your grand mother. As thyroid is a lifestyle disease, we can not achieve great results without changing our lifestyle. She need a medicine which gives her power which is lost because of this disease. So we need to analyse her situation properly. In homeopathy we give personalize touch to the treatment. We do not give same medicines to all thyroid patients. So please consult a skilled homeopath. She will be definitely benefited without any side effects.

Following your meal plan, exercising regularly, being consistent with blood sugar testing, and following up regularly with your doctor.-Very important Tracking carbohydrates is particularly important.Big variations in carbohydrate intake from day to day can lead to fluctuations in blood sugars. Follow these specific strategies to help control blood sugar: Exercise. A regular exercise program will help manage blood sugar levels over time, and taking a varied approach to fitness is good for diabetes and health in general.
