Can I eat brown bread and nutralite cholesterol free low fat butter during dieting in breakfast?

Can I eat brown bread and nutralite cholesterol free low fat butter during dieting in breakfast?
Pl check the label on the packaging. You will find that even low fat butter contains quite a good quantity of fat. Hence better avoid it. It will be better if you use home made curd instead of any butter. It will be very tasty to eat and you will relish it. Dr. G L Moondra.

Hi lybrate-user, I advise you to take some counseling from a psychologist regarding the situation you are in. Every individual is different and we are sometimes unable to change the situation and therefore its better we recognize the difficulties one is facing in the relationship and make adjustments and deal with better. Counseling and therapy can teach/equip you with such techniques.

Hello dear patient. 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

The yohimbe tree is a tall evergreen native to western africa and its bark contains a chemical called yohimbine. Yohimbe bark has traditionally been used in africa as an aphrodisiac and is currently used as a remedy for sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction. As a dietary supplement, the dried bark is made into tea and taken by mouth; an extract of the bark is also put into capsules and tablets. The amount of yohimbine in dietary supplements may vary with some products containing very little yohimbine. Renewed interest in yohimbine for erectile dysfunction has prompted several investigative trials, and with these studies have come indications of side effects, such as hypertension, anxiety, manic symptoms, and interactions with used medications. Consult with a doctor before using this supplement. In homeopathy this medicine available as mother tincture.

Sir I am with 46 year. Last 4 year I have diabetes. When check blood report my triglyceride level 700. What is your advise?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello from the data it is uncertain whether your blood sugar is under control or not. Triglyceride level is too high it can lead to pancreatitis, hence start immediately on atorvastatin plus fenofibrate tablets. Simultaneously you have to have strict blood sugar control. Also inform about hba1c level.

Dear , Creatinine levels can be changed with proper water metabolism and does not necessarily need medicine support all the time. Neprosave is too strong a medicine. First of all, you need to reduce your weight by atleast 35 kgs to be able to reduce the burden on all you body organs. Any amount of medicine will help reduce the symptom, but a proper lifestyle, weight, proper regulated food are essential to maintain proper health. Regards.
