Joint pain problems in knees, backpain, am suffering from diabetes from last three month's, also from hypertension,
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Mere left hip replacement hoke 5 months ho gaya. I am Muslim. Mere ko namaz padna hai. Pad Sakta Hu kya.

Mere left hip replacement hoke 5 months ho gaya. I am Muslim. Mere ko namaz padna hai. Pad Sakta Hu kya.
Dos and don'ts (precautions) vary depending on your doctor's surgical technique. Your doctor and physical therapist will provide you with a list of dos and don'ts to remember with your new hip. These precautions will help to prevent the new joint from dislocating and ensure proper healing. Here are some of the most common precautions: the don'ts don't cross your legs at the knees for at least 6 to 8 weeks. Don't bring your knee up higher than your hip. Don't lean forward while sitting or as you sit down. Don't try to pick up something on the floor while you are sitting. Don't turn your feet excessively inward or outward when you bend down. Don't reach down to pull up blankets when lying in bed. Don't bend at the waist beyond 90 degrees.

This back pain is due to no back exercise. Due to this muscle get stiff. When suddenly you get move fast that time this stiff muscle get break and pain start. In ayurved there is mentioned one procedure kati basti. Do this for five days with medicated oil if you want to do it you should do it under doctor observation. So consult ayurvedic doctor near you. You will definitely get good result.

SURELY SWIMMING CAN HELP IN BUILDING UP YOUR SPINAL MUSCLES AND IN DECRAESING BACK PAIN. All of us have either suffered from back pain or neck pain at some point of time or may know some one in our family who had. The good news is that most of these spinal pains usually get better within a few days or weeks. What’s more, simple self-help strategies such as these can be surprisingly effective at preventing pain and preventing it from returning: Do’s 1.Get more exercise for your back and stomach. If your back is hurting, you may think the best way to get relief is to limit exercise and to rest. A day or two of rest may help, but more than that may not help the pain. Experts now know that regular physical activity can help ease inflammation and muscle tension. 2.Daily brisk walk for about 1 hour. Try to cover 4-6 km in 1 hour. 3. Pay attention to your posture. The best chair for preventing back pain is one with a full back straight support. A chair with full arm support and a head support is preferable. Keep your knees a bit higher than your hips while seated. Prop your feet on a stool if you need to. If you must stand for a prolonged period, keep your head up and your stomach pulled in. If possible, rest one foot on a stool -- and switch feet every five to 15 minutes. Make sure your desktop is at eye level and key board is easily accessible. 4. Regular intake of Calcium and Vit D Don’ts 5. Watch your weight. Extra pounds, especially on your belly, can make back pain worse by shifting your center of gravity and putting strain on your lower back. Staying within 10 pounds of your ideal weight may help control back pain. 6. If you smoke, stop. Smoking restricts the flow of nutrient-containing blood to spinal discs, so smokers are especially vulnerable to back pain and neck pain. 7. Be careful how you lift. Do not lift away from your body. Don’t bend over from the waist to lift heavy objects. Bend your knees and squat, pulling in your stomach muscles and holding the object close to your body as you stand up. Don't twist your body while lifting. If you can, push rather than pull heavy objects. Pushing is easier on the back. 8. Do not sit continuously for long hours, take a break every hour. 9. Do not carry your laptop on one shoulder, use a roll on bag or a double shoulder bag.
