I am 28 years old. Where can I test my testosterone level? and are the protein supplements safe?

FRAS, MD - Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Ernakulam
U can it tested from any laboratory, protein without anabolic steroids is safe, in short pure protein is safe but majority of companies add steroids for fast results which is not safe, if u r not a hardcore body builder avoid artificial protein, instead take eggs whites etc

Can I buy generic medicines for my BP and Diabetics problems. Any difference and any problem. please advise. Thanks.

M.B.B.S. , PG Diploma In Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Generic medicine although claims to hve the same efficacy as branded medicines (theretically) yet you can think practically how can you get a thing in rs 3 which others are giving at rs 50. Indians are always going before cost ,try quality product ,its you life. Every thing can not be free. How can you get a I phone at cost of micromax, both are smart phone same feature but there is a huge difference in quality.

From last few days I am feeling weak (body pain and headache) just as I have fever, but my body temperature is normal. What should I do next?

Ph. D - Psychology
There are 126 conditions associated with body aches or pain and headache. This may be because of viral syndrome, viral pharyngitis, lack of exercise or physical activity or change of weather. Drink plenty of water regular exercise and yoga meditation proper rest/ good sleep. If situation not changed get cbc and d-3 test done and check with a physician.
