Dear lybrate-user, I am very concerned about your complaint. I wish you follow my following advice for a week and you will be able to see the difference. 1) have plenty of liquid food - 2-3 litres per day. 2) prefer hot water bath. 3) take milk before sleeping. 4) eat at the right time. 5) just relax whenever you are free. I feel you are emotionally very worried about something. Kindly chat with me in person for better health.

Hello,Homeopathic medicines are less invasive and have more herbal approach towards gaining the weight. There are a number of homoeopathic medicines, which treat the root cause behind the body’s inability to gain weight or bulk up. 1. Take alfalfa tonic(wsi), 2 – 2 tsp. Thrice a day, half an hour before meals. 2. Calcarea phos 200, 5 drops , once in aweek , morning empty stomach for 2 weeks. 3. Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. do light exercises regularly to keep your body active. These homoeopathic medicines and dietary addition will increase your appetite and give your metabolism a healthy boost. ***If you do not get results with this treatment then please revert me i will suggest you to go through some tests.*** Thanks.

Be active. Have lot of fibres and good diet. If there is any disease like anaemia, indigestion, leucorrhoea etc, the med may be different. Have little exercise and long walks. There are some herbomineral ayurveda combos helping to gain weight. But you have to follow directions strictly. But never use harmonal medicine for gaining weight. For any specific query pl. Consult privately.

Hello sir, I want to lose my weight. N increase my height. My height is 4.11 and weight is 51 kg. Please help me.

General Physician,
Hello sir, I want to lose my weight. N increase my height. My height is 4.11 and weight is 51  kg. Please help me.
Increasing height is not possible as it is determined by your genetic nature. You need to have a diet and exercise plan based on your bmi, age & weight and sex, presence of any diseases. There are exercises specific for each part of body like hips, thighs or abdomen/or chest. There are matters to be discussed personally. Comprehensive exercise& diet plan based on whether vegetarian /non vegetarian can be given if you ask me. May also need to do some tests. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/4 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 kms and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

My issue is overweight. How to reduce weight? I tried many ways like Gym (only treadmill and cycling), jogging, dieting. I did it for about 2 months and only 2 kgs were reduced. And then when I started the medication for my Pimples, it happened so that my weight increased to 120 kg. Also I tried with all types of medicines for Allopathic, Homeopathic and Ayurveda. It effected accordingly but the effect was on till I was having those medicines. I just want to know what to do about my overweight body and those Pimples. Please help me sir/ma'am.

Hi firstly never give up hope. Believe it is possible to be healthy and fit. After studying your issues. # issue no 1. You say that you lost only two kgs in two months. Actually that is a good rate. You should have continued. Why did you give up. That way you could lose 12 kgs in a year and 24 kgs in two years. Please do not look at the time when you want to reduce. That is the biggest hurdle. # issue no 2. If medicine for pimples is increasing your weight then stop taking it. Switch to homeo pathy. Usually pimples come due to age and diet. And they will go away. # issue no. 3. No medicine can reduce your weight. Please don't believe all these false advertisements/ prescriptions. # solution. Now I will talk about solution. Firstly believe that a simple diet + daily exercise will solve your problem. Don't just think of'weight loss' aim to become fit. Aim to run. Aim to be strong. Aim to be healthy. Aim to play. # monitor your diet. Download'myfitnesspal' app and record your daily intake of food and exercise and you will realise where you are going wrong. # eat small meals, eat 4-5 fruits daily, eat 2 kheera daily, drink two glasses of milk without sugar. # eat slowly, chew properly, don't gulp down food # drink one glass of water every hour from waking till sleeping # no more parathas or puri or pizza or burger, have plain - sukha roti or rice # take one katori dal + veggie with every meal try it for a month and then you can report progress on private consultation. Never give up. Keep taking one step after another and you will reach your destination!

Hye, Thanks for the query. If you want to gain some weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. 1.  Eat 5 to 6 meals a day In order to gain weight, you need to start eating 5-6 meals a day. However, it is important that you break these meals into parts, as eating a lot at once may result in indigestion. Also, be sure to include healthy foods in your diet for a healthy weight gain. 2.  Weight train at least 3 times a week When you train with weights, your muscles grow. 3.  Consume more calories than you burn. Eating calories more than your normal intake may not be easy, but you must do it if you want to stop being skinny. Make sure you don’t do it just by overeating at once, but instead do it gradually over the whole day. 4.  Work out your entire body A lot of gym goers usually train only the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Make sure you workout your entire body for a wholesome weight gain. 5.  Load up on protein As informed earlier, you have to consume more calories than your normal intake every day. You can do this by eating foods rich in protein like dairy, meat, eggs, nuts, dry fruits, pulses, sprouts, smoothies, milk shakes etc. 6.  Drink your calories It may be tough to meet your calorie requirements by just eating. Drinking milk, lassi, milkshakes or fruit smoothies with little or no sugar can be a great way to load up on the required calories. 7.  Try and eat fast (but don’t choke on it) Your body takes some time to give signals of satiety which is why eating fast can help you eat more. 8.  Focus on recovery after each workout Stretching exercises, foods rich in carbohydrates can help recover your body significantly. Also, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep as inadequate sleep can cause several problems. 9.  Be patient with yourself.

Dear lybrate-user, I find it had to believe that your Cousin's doctor is ignorant of her problem. Some drugs used for Diabetes can give gastrointestinal symptons such as vomitting and cause low sugar levels. I am quite sure you doctor is aware of this. I would encourage you to dicuss this aspect in detail with her doctor. If the fasting and PP blood sugar levels are in normal range without antiglycemic drugs the it is quite like you do not need the drugs. Nevertheless, it is quite likely that you could be a pre-diabetic. Your doctor should be able to prescribe lab tests to determine this and treat the same.

A guide to getting active if you have an impairment or a long-term health condition.
Hello Dushyant, i would suggest you first thing start exercising as exercise, changes the outlook of the person, in a way it makes things positive and again eat healthy food rich in antioxidants like, pomegranate, beetroot and such dark coloured fruits and vegetables. Green tea also helps. Long term impairments are of many kinds, one first needs to know the kind of impairment and then only can decide on the diet and exercise, but walking is recommended irrespective of the impairment.

Types and Diagnosis of Uterine Fibroids

Fellowship In Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Hyderabad
Types and Diagnosis of Uterine Fibroids

Noncancerous growths of the muscle tissue surrounding the uterus are known as uterine fibroids. This is a common disease which about 70 to 80% of women contract by the time they are 50 years of age. The uterine fibroids can sometimes be very big and cause heavy periods as well as severe abdominal pain while at other times, uterine fibroids give no signs or symptoms whatsoever and go away on their own. This is why it is crucial to know what type of uterine fibroids you have and how to diagnose them. Here are the types of uterine fibroids and how to diagnose them;

Types
There are three main types of uterine fibroids. They are;

1. Intramural fibroids
The most common type of uterine fibroids are intramural fibroids. They typically appear in the endometrium and may grow larger which results in your womb getting stretched.

2. Subserosal fibroids
Subserosal fibroids are called so because they form on the serosa. The serosa is the outside of your uterus. Sometimes, Subserosal fibroids may grow so large that your uterus appears bigger on one side.

3. Pedunculated fibroids
Pedunculated fibroids tumors are basically Subserosal fibroids with a stem. A base which supports the tumor is called the stem.

Diagnosis
There are a number of tests done to diagnose uterine fibroids. They are;

1. Pelvic exam
A pelvic exam is a thorough inspection of a woman’s pelvic area. The organs which are in the pelvic area include the cervix, ovaries, uterus and vagina. Normally, this and the next test in this article are enough to diagnose uterine fibroids.

2. Medical history
The history of your periods as well as the other symptoms you have will often be enough to diagnose the uterine fibroids. If your medical history is not enough, then you might need to undergo a pelvic exam.

3. Pelvic ultrasound
An ultrasound is when high-intensity sound waves are used to produce images of the pelvic area. This is only done when a pelvic exam and your medical history are not enough to diagnose uterine fibroids.

Lybrate-user! eating less or not at all eating is not the solution to lose weight. Eat regularly but in small quantities ans at intervals. It will stimulate your metabolism. Try decreasing carbs from your diet. Try increasing your physical workout on daily basis.

Watermelon White Portion Benefits

Yes, you are right that is watermelon.

Isn't it amazing to have a fruit whose each and every part is useful, the fruit itself pink portion, seeds and yes the rind i.e. the white portion.

The watermelon rind or the white portion is mostly discarded, has a powerful antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase. The rind also contains citrulline, an amino acid which helps in the production of nitric oxide, that dilates blood vessels and paves way for smoother blood flow, thus improving heart health.

Keep watching this space for recipes incorporating white rind of watermelon. Reducing the footprints.
