Protein is a macro nutrient necessary for the proper growth and function of the human body. There is considerable debate over the amount of protein a person needs to consume per day, the current recommended daily intake for protein is 56 grams. Foods with the highest protein yogurt, milk, soymilk, eggs, chicken, fish, cheese, nuts and seeds. Consult me through privately for more weight gaining details.

I feel brain zaps/up and down feeling with kind of energy in the center of my brain that doesn't fall me sleep day and night. Zap is also sensitive to voice and noise. I take trika 0.5 at night that help in night. My purpose is to understand chemical status of brain in these type of situation. I am motivated for work but I procrastinate too much and I somehow connected serotonin for that but not sure how to interpret that (doctor said that but I want to explore more) I also got mild sweating and feel need of breath. I am taking consultation of psychiatric but I am looking for sustainable support and solutions to overcome this situation.

You can manage to some extent with medication. I recommend that you also combine counseling with the medication and get maximum benefits. Your condition is a fear-based situation and therefore many aspects of fear needs to be taught to you and ways o expressing them also. When you get frustrated with the fear, you will tend to act angry, which is a cover up feeling. People will mistakenly respond to the anger, when fear is the genuine feeling. You will learn all about this in therapy and that will help you with a lot of skills and techniques to cope with life with these vacillating moods.

I have a obstructive sleep apnea problem and have been using CPAP machine for last 3 years. How can I sleep without CPAP machine and what should I do for the same? I tried to sleep without CPAP machine but I awake frequently at night and feeling sleepy all day.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
The best treatment available to manage obstructive sleep apnea (osa) is cpap. You are using it for 3 years now, itself is an indication that you feel benefit by using it, so why do you want to leave it and try other therapies, which are usually not very effective for osa. Not taking treatment for osa for a long time can have detrimental effects on health. I suggest you keep using your cpap machine, and also get evaluated periodically with your sleep specialist for seeing the latest situation of your condition and pressure changes that may be required if any.

I am 56 years old working in railways as a design egineer. I am finding the symptoms of parkinsons. Can you suggest me right ayurvedic medicine.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Dear , parkinson is a slow disease starts with tremors and gradually progresses to dyskinesia. Only fine tremors cannot be confirmed as parkinsons disease so kindly confirm the diagnosis with a neurologist in your area. Macuna nuts (kapikachhu seeds - mucuna pruriens) is a good medicine as it is a dopamine agonist although not the ayurvedic management can be a good supplement. Zandu has a otc product called zandopa which can be used. But before confirming consult and confirm the diagnosis.

diabetic double risk of parkinsonism

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
diabetic double risk  of parkinsonism
Diabetes more than doubles the risk of developing Parkinson's disease while metformin therapy protects against that risk, according to research published in the publication Parkinsonism and Related Disorders.

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the brain that leads to tremors and difficulty with walking, movement and coordination. It most often develops in people age 50 or older and is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly, according to the National Institutes of Health. There is no known cure.

The major 12-year study in Taiwan found that while diabetes increases the risk of Parkinson's 2.2 fold, including metformin in the therapy negates that risk.

“An exciting aspect of the finding is that metformin seems to be working to protect the brain against neurodegeneration which contributes to Parkinsonism. This means it may also be considered a relevant therapy for the prevention of dementia as well,” said Mark Wahlqvist, professor at the National Health Research Institutes in Taiwan and lead author of the study.

Metformin is the first-line medication for patients with type 2 diabetes. This affordable and commonly prescribed oral drug lowers blood glucose levels by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver and enhancing insulin action. It's a type of biguanide drug used since the 1950s with a relatively safe record.

Researchers also found that use of sulfonylurea drugs, a common treatment for diabetes, further increases the risk by about 57 percent.

Sylfonylureas are a category of oral medications that stimulate the beta cells of the pancreas to release more insulin, according to the American Diabetes Association. Sylfonylurea drugs have been in use since the 1950s and include glipizide, glyburide, glimepiride and chlorpropamide.

Researchers theorize that metformin may re-set the regulation of energy metabolism in the brain cells. They suspect that exercise and diet may have the same energy regulating effect.

The study does not examine the mechanism behind metformin's protective effect on the brain. Researchers say that additional research is needed in this area.

Past research has shown that metformin reduces cardiovascular mortality and several cancers, including those of the large bowel, liver and pancreas.

I have tried welbutirin, with horrendous anxiety and insomnia side effects. Had the same reaction to zoloft and paxil plus sexual side effects. Then tried remeron which was good.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter.

What are the indications that you get before a stroke? What happens if you already had a stroke and recovered?

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
There are not proved indicators before a stroke occurs. From what we hear from patients is that they feel feverish, Tingling sensation in the limbs, blurring if vision and other things. These are just patient reports which have high possibility if a response to an ongoing stroke. Its better to look at how early you can see if a stroke has happened. FAST - weakness in one side of face, weak arm, slurring of speech and time is for acting fast if you think one of the first three has occured. Window period is very important in recovery after stroke. It is the same scenario if the person has recovered completely. However, there is a multiplier effect on the symptoms and cann leave permanent problem.
