Hello, No drinking of warm water is not harmful for heart, kidney and lungs. According to your height and age your body weight should under 70 kg. You should take about 6% water of your body weight. As much as possible you should take drinkable warm water alongwith 5/6 Fresh one seeded garlic root which will increase your metabolic rate and reduce the body weight. This will help you to prevent the possibilities of future heart ProblemAlso don't take any Junk food, Clod water, fatty oil. If you follow this, I am sure that you will call me after two months if there has no any medical problem. If you have any medical problem then You should go through proper Characterized Homeopathic case recording for your individualized treatment else your problem will persist.

This is a general strain due to excessive walking or standing and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain.

Hello lybrate user hdl is protective lipoprotein for cardiovascular diseases. Meaning by which having a good hdl level is protective in itself but the reverse is not true. Many people have this misconception that having a low hdl level will harm them in some way. But having a low hdl level means that you have less protection it doesn't mean that you are at risk. Not having protection versus being at risk are two very opposite things. As you pointed out that your ldl level is 119. The optimum level for anybody is less than 100 and in case of diabetics the level should be less than 70. Having a high ldl level is indeed indicative of risk. Ldl is the bad cholesterol, it needs to be curbed. For this purpose either you can make diet adjustments or you can take medicine.

Reduce your salt intake, reduce your weight. Do regular exercise, like walking. Take lesser amount pf fatty, fried food. Try to be relaxed. Life style modifications alone lower the blood pressure. Infact, initially, one should try these measures and then only try medicines especially if it is stage 1 hypertension.

You should get sonography of the breast as well to be more clear about the lump. Mammography may not pick up the lump sometimes. Even if sonography does not pick it up, then it is likely to be fibroadenosis which is mostly related to hormonal changes or edema because of some injury.

You are getting indirect satisfaction from your friend. Your friend loved one person and failed. He revealed to you and get benefit from you. Then he feels. You also not needed. Then stop friendship to you. But you are unable to control of yourself. You wants to guide to him in all times. But it is not happen in all times. Friends are like that. When they need they come to you. After getting relief they leave to you. You also take it easy. Do not think too much about this aspects. You are getting much satisfaction when you listen and guide him. You feel supreme and your internal ego also satisfied. But the ego cannot tolerate when he leave to you. This is not good. He is not feel to you as a good friend. For that reason he leaves to you. So also think like that. Stop the indirect process of satisfaction. Internally you feel he wants to love to you. But he vexed this process and stopped with you also. You are getting very good experience based on that do not develop too much expectation from others. Take it easy. Better to concentration on your studies. Anyone comes to you and express their problems. Just listen and help to them. Do not think they are my all time friends. Better to change your thoughts process. Be friendly and be sociable. All the best.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes t2, then it is essential to have good control of blood sugar, for that fasting should be near 100 mg, pp shoud be 150 to 160 mg (as you have now) and hba1c% < 6.8. Diet for a person with diabetes has to be very individualised, so I need to know present dietary habits, fasting sugar levels and hba1c% plus daily exercise level. In the mean time avoid sweets, direct sugar and gur, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Also exercise regularly for at least 1 hour. Our is just about 20 kg/m2 which is in fact much lower than normal bmi of 23 kg/m2.

Dear lybrate-user, It will be proper to take her to the same doctor who prescribed the first medicines. Maybe the medicine dose needs to be adjusted. Make sure she is taking the proper precautions to keep her BP under check with proper exercise, diet and rest. Regards.
