I am facing knee joint pain while sitting for a long time. Why is it so? What remedies should I take?
Halo Dr. i keeps my self fit by doing regular exercises. In oct 2015 I suffered with Typhoid. I could not complete proper medication but recovered. After that I started feeling weakness on and off. Now for the last one and half month I am feeling acute fatigue. More over I again suffered from fever on 18.04. 2016 and it repeated four times I again undergone medical check up, all tests conducted like Vidal, bilubrin, viral, dengue etc but nothing detected. An ESR test was conducted which shows infection level up to 50. Than other tests also conducted like cholesterol, lipid profile, Ldl, Hdl, Thyroid, urine culture, blood culture, diabetes, hemoglobin, etc every report is ok. Than my Dr. on assumption basis started monocep in IV for typhoid thinking that may be in latent form not reflecting in tests. Now my fever is over for the last five days without taking PCM. Now my weakness is still existing. I am taking cefuroxime and Darolac OD. PSE let me know as my fever and weakness still could not rightly diagnosed. Than what should I do now, however fever is not coming but weakness 8s there. I have reduced my weight also by 1.5 kg within 20 days.

You can be very much addicted to having sugar that many a times you might find it difficult to cut down on the amount of your intake. You might find it impossible to stop eating sugar. You might crave to have anything which has a lot of sugar in it.
Why is it bad?
Sugar is a fattening compound as it contains fructose. Sugar causes you to overeat, which in turn causes weight gain. It can bring anatomical changes in the brain, which gets you into an addiction. Sugar addiction is just like any other addiction, like that with nicotine or any other drugs. The only difference is the substance being used. Sugar can mess with the chemical balance of the brain to make you crave for it more.
How to overcome it?
To overcome sugar addiction, here are a few steps you can take:
- Observe yourself: This is the first step you should take. Observe what you eat, how much of sugar it contains. Take a note of how you feel after having sugar or something, which is laden with sugar. Keep a diary entry of whatever you observe about yourself and your sugar consumption.
- Practice self care: It is extremely difficult for any sugar addict to transition into a diet without any sugar or low sugar content. You will have to take it slow and add regular practice of self care. Do not avoid breakfast every morning. Remember to add in the required amount of fats and proteins (learn more about the Importance of Protein). Do not skip out on meals. Drink a lot of water and fluids like fresh fruit juice and sleep for at least 7 hours or more so that you get proper rest.
- Be honest with yourself: If you are trying to get rid of the sugar addiction, you have to be extremely honest without yourself. If you succumb to temptation and end up eating a few too many candies, then be honest with yourself and admit it. Make it a point to overcome the temptation the next time.
