Honey + warm milk help to get sleep. Do not take medicines that lead to addiction. Left hand pain -write back details or take a routine pain killer like maftal forte.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Do avoid any arguments with family & friends as it is the main cause of your problem -do regular exercise like walking /brisk walking for 20-30 min in morning, do yoga, meditation & deep breathing exercise for 10-15 min in the morning to calm & relax your mind & to keep the body fit -do not take a nap for more than 30 min in the day -keep yourself occupied in the day by reading, listening to music, following a hobby, socializing with friends & speaking with family -also reduce intake of alcohol to 60 ml as the amount you consume is more, as you reduce the consumption you will start getting sound sleep -also take a balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, have 6-7 glasses of water for sufficient hydration -take medication on time regularly.

I am 55yr old male I am using tab amlace 5mg bpcontrol and diabcon-ds for sugar control when I penetrate within few seconds I ejaculate my wife get frustrated please help me my bp and sugar in control in morning I get hard erection.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Your bp and sugar are controlled. Premature ejaculation is very common and is usually not associated with any disease but may be due to anxiety. However it is sometimes associated with infection of male accessory glands, which is treatable. In case you want a prescription from me now then ask at private question.

Sir; I wanted to know what are the main reasons for increase in the cholesterol level in the body?

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology

Sir; I wanted to know what are the main reasons for increase in the cholesterol level in the body?
Cholesterol level increases due to increased production and decreased burning by body. If you eat lots of unhealthy junk foods or fat rich foods then your body converts them to cholesterol. Similarly if you don't burn your fat by exercise then they tend to accumulate. There are other causes also. But these are simplest of explanations.

pigeon chest, is a deformity of the chest characterized by a protrusion of the sternum and ribs. the chest wall is rigidly held in an outward position. Thus, respirations are inefficient. deformities can have a significant psychologic impact. Some people, especially those with milder cases, live happily with pectus carinatum. For others, though, the shape of the chest can damage their self-image and confidence. bodybuilding techniques may be useful for balancing visual impact. Most commonly, pectus carinatum develops in 11-to-14-year-old pubertal males undergoing a growth spurt. the use of a customized chest-wall brace that applies direct pressure on the protruding area of the chest produces excellent outcomes.. This device is easily hidden under clothing and must be worn from 14 to 24 hours a day.

The best way is get a TMT done and if it permits you can play badminton. The only precaution is the level of exercise should be increased gradually (graded exercise).

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is diabetes has to be controlled effectively so also the bp. If blood sugar is high, there is a regular loss of glucose through urine. This leads to weakness. She should aim to achieve fasting sugar closer to 100 mg and pp around 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Bp should be 130 / 80 mm hg. If this is done generally tiredness and weakness do not remain. Diet has to be based on ideal body weight (58 kgs), present sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Information about present dietary intake also is necessary. The steps to be followed are: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat items like cheese, processed fried foods and red meat, ghee and butter. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Permitted fruits about 100 g a day can be taken.

This may be due to high uric acid. Also this can be a cause due to prolong anxiety. I think you should visit a md medicine doctor for this purpose.
