Can you kindly explain to me how a person becomes resistant to insulin and what are the remedies if any .

Can you kindly explain to me how a person becomes resistant to insulin and what are the
remedies if any .
Mr. Lybrate-user, insulin resistance id mainly caused by increasing body fat. Hence, being over weight or being obese is one of the main causes. A lot of fat collects around organs inside the abdomen, (around liver, kidney and gut) this affects insulin action. Once that happens glucose level tends to go up. Resultant hyperglycemia causes glucotoxicity and further increases insulin resistance. Therefore, weight reduction, diet control and regular exercise (exercise helps muscles to use more glucose, helps reduction of blood glucose), are specifically helpful. That is why inan obese or over weight person weight reduction by even 5 to 8% produces significant blood glucose reduction as it improves insulin action. Thanks.

I have problem in my mouth. Early morning I wake up in my mouth cough problem daily before 3years.

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hello Prayag, The problem that you have cited is not with your mouth but with your lungs. If you are a cigarette smoker, this is because of the cigarettes. It is called as smokers cough. If not, you will have to undergo an X Ray of your chest in order to rule out any infection in your chest. The cough is produced in the chest. during the night when you are lying down for a long time, the cough comes out of the lungs and gets accumulated in the air pipe. In the morning, when you wake up and try breathing in an upright position, this accumulated cough causes difficulty in breathing and leads to cough which helps in removing the cough.

Which whey protein I should take as post workout after gym with company name plz.
Dear lybrateuser, - It is always better to avoid supplements & preferably use natural foods to build your body as the supplements are not that well absorbed & digested by the body as compared to the natural foods, also in the long run they may strain & effect the kidneys & liver - you can add these protein rich foods to your meals & also have as snacks, eggs, milk & milk products, non-veg like seafood, chicken, meats, soya products, beans, legumes, tofu, nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pistachios, cashews, peanuts.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. MASTURBATION is normal, natural and never unhealthy. Even animals do masturbate. As a human being, you are also an animal. Every animal has sexual instinct because they are designed to reproduce. Human being also has sexual instinct and therefore he needs to satisfy sexual instinct. Therefore, to satisfy sexual instinct, a man or woman, masturbates. In any case, masturbation is never unhealthy or will never affect your physical or sexual health or it cannot affect your future sex life and the ability to have children. But, masturbation is energy consuming. Please make sure you restrict your masturbation to thrice a week. I suggest counseling and sex therapy. Take care.

Have regular food habits as well as habit of going for motion. Don’t avoid when you have an urge for going to toilet. Take 2 to 3 glasses of warm water in the morning. This will help in reducing acidity as well as hardness of stool and you don’t have to strain your pelvic muscles. Keep hydrated by drinking lots of water and having fruits and vegetable juices Avoid sitting for long time at one place. Sedentary habit causes constipation. Driving bike or cycle for long duration at a time may be avoided. Travelling in a car or bus for long journey is also not good. Train is better as you can change positions. Avoid chillies, masalas and such hot foods. Take easily digestible foods including curds and fruits. We have very good treatment in homoeopathy. To start with, take Nux vom 200 twice daily morning and evening and give feedback after 5 days.

If the girl had regular normal periods, it is less likely to be a pregnancy. (exception is an ectopic pregnancy in which case the female may get spotting instead of the regular periods)

Hello. Masturbation drains vital nutrients from the body. If body is in the state of good health to recover, supported by healthy food, regular exercise and calm mind, this practice may cause no impact. Continued drain without enough nutrition reach can lead to weakness (trauma), reflected both in mind (lack of self confidence is the most common) and in the body (digestive disorders, hair fall, frequent urination etc). Medication: Take Staphysagria 200 and Alfaalfa Tonic - both twice daily for 3 weeks.

Time to get some test done. Chances that you are having some infection if your calorie intake is same as before. Meet an endocrinologist asap.
