The reports are all normal, However, the blurring of vision and lightheadedness is a problem indeed. Get yourself examined by an Eye specialist and he may be able to tell you if there is anything wrong with your eyes. Relax. You do not have a liver problem, at least from the reports and symptoms that you have shared with us here. However, it will be worthwhile knowing if you consume alcohol regularly and if yes, in what amount. In case you do, you will need to cut down on the alcohol as excess alcohol can cause all the problems you just mentioned. In case you need any further help, you can book​ an online consult and I will be happy to help.

Hello lybrate-user, Let me tell you something, our stomach is a bit like balloon, the more you blow air into it it will get bigger, the lesser you blow air into the lesser it will stretch. In case of our stomach also, the same thing happens. The more we eat and fill our stomach, its capacity increases, and if we are able to keep it maintained then we succeed. Your problem is vice-versa of what I mentioned above. So for this you can try having small small quantities of food at a time but multiple times a day. Like if you used to have 3 meals a day, make it 6 times. Its not important that you are having a large meal or not, what is important is to keep on giving what our body needs in a day. Now what you can eat, may be your next question, you can start your day with a cup of tea or coffee or a cup of double toned milk with two or three biscuits followed by a carbohydrate rich breakfast. Now since you have a problem of eating so try having food stuffs like, aloo parantha, paneer parantha with raita (even you can have only 1 of it that will also do), sweet corn salads, pulav, poha, etc. Then after 1.5 hrs or 2 hrs have a whole fruit, then again in lunch eat a bit of chapati or rice with daal and a curry (if you feel that you can only have one side dish at a time then try drinking daal after you eat 1 or 2 chapatis with a side dish). Then again something like may be juice or lassi followed by an evening snack. Like this you got to increase your metabolism, then only you will be put on weight (by put on weigh I mean, it will be visible). I hope this will be helpful to you. Thank you. Have a nice day!

Small Penis Fear: Unnecessary Worries About Shrinkage

MD - General Medicine

Small Penis Fear: Unnecessary Worries About Shrinkage

As any man who has taken a dip in an icy cold lake can attest, there is such a thing as penis shrinkage. But, aside from some "normal" shrinkage which may or may not come with age - the jury is still out on its prevalence - penis shrinkage is typically short term, as in the case of swimming in icy cold water. Although having a small penis in no way affects penis health, some men can be so hung up on the size of their penis that they may go to extremes in worrying about it.

This can lead to "koro," a situation in which a man worries that his big penis is becoming smaller and smaller - and may shrink away altogether.


  • "Koro" comes from a Malaysian word meaning "the head of a turtle" and it's an apt name. A turtle's head does bear a certain resemblance to a penis, and since turtles are known to withdraw their heads so they disappear into the shell, it's easy to see why this name would apply to a fear that a guy's penis is shrinking away to nothing.
  • Examples of koro go back for centuries, at least to 300 BC. Usually, the shrinkage fear is extreme, with the belief not the man will have a small penis, but that he will have no penis whatsoever and that somehow his death will occur as a result.
  • It's generally classified as a psychological disorder, and one which can inexplicably appear in groups of men at the same time, a form of mass hysteria. It is often associated with a belief that an outside force, such as witchcraft or a chemical secretly dispersed by an enemy, is behind it. Many psychologists posit that it may be related to instances in which a man (or group of men) are feeling disempowered by society or circumstance. There may also be an element of guilt involved, such as shame about masturbating.


While it may seem koro is nothing but an unfortunate delusion, it can have some drastic real world consequences. In one area in which a man claimed witches had made his penis disappear, a group of missionaries were blamed and burned to death.

The hysterical nature of koro makes it seem all too real to those who suffer from it - and makes them feel genuinely panicked and in fear for their lives.


  • There is absolutely no reason to believe that actual incidences of koro - that is, real penis shrinkage leading to death - have ever occurred. But can real penis shrinkage of a more modest kind occur?
  • Yes, in fact, although the frequency and severity of the shrinkage is generally not so severe. For example, if a man has Peyronie's disease, which causes unnatural bending of the penis, there may be a loss of some length. This is because the bending may restrict tissue stretching, making the penis a little shorter than it would otherwise be.
  • Similarly, when men have erectile issues, it may be that their erections are somewhat shorter. This can happen when the dysfunction does not prevent an erection from happening but does impact how "full" the erection is.
  • Also, when a man gains a considerable amount of weight in the belly area, he may appear to lose some length in the penis. This is because the flab in his midsection covers up some of the base of the penis.
  • Even if a man has a small penis, due to some degree of shrinkage or just genetics, most men are capable of performing sexually, both for themselves and their partners. Whatever the size of the manhood, it's always wise to use a first class penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to keep the penis in good shape. A crème with L-arginine, an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide, can play a role in maintaining penile blood vessel health. And one with L carnitine is valuable for helping protect from loss of sensation in the organ.

Acupuncture - How It Is Beneficial?

MBBS, Ph.D. Alternative Medicine
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Patiala
Acupuncture - How It Is Beneficial?

Acupuncture is an alternative medicinal practice that involves stimulating certain pressure points on the body with a needle that penetrates the skin to reduce pain or to treat different health conditions. Most patients try out acupuncture if everything else fails and when their doctors have pronounced their problem unfixable. It is also opted when the physician prescribed medicines have brought no pain relief. Others have discovered that continuous acupuncture tends to make conventional medicines seem moderate.

In case you have not tried out acupuncture and are interested to know whether it is justified regardless of your time and cash, here are five urging motivations that show that acupuncture works:

  1. It is a personalized healthcare: No two acupuncture therapy patients get a similar treatment for a similar illness or uneasiness. Acupuncturists treat the patients, not the sicknesses. They are prepared to take in everything about you, from the sound of your voice to the nature of your skin to the radiance in your eyes. They think about your entire story over a significant time span. They see your body as a system of related parts: muscles, bones, belt, organs, blood and body liquids. They see what is insufficient and what is trapped, rationally and also physically, and make alterations, thereby encouraging the body's own recovering capacity.
  2. It is not something to fearOf course, you may feel the needles and their quick impacts; however, you need not be on edge. In case you are feeling throbbing pains every day in general, you will not even feel the needles go in since the pinch is very minute.
  3. It shows great after effects: You may go for acupuncture to cure your neck and shoulder pain, and find that the pain reduces. Then, your anxiety level, sleep quality, processing, and general disposition improve and enhance as well.
  4. It gets to the root: Needle therapy medicines are profoundly mending since they centre around the patient's present condition, explore why their indications are showing and intend to treat the hidden underlying driver.
  5. It works: Acupuncture has been around before written history. The most punctual composed record originates from a couple of 100 years before the BC. In case it did not work, it surely would not have been done for a large number of years and spread through many Asian medicinal heredities.

Researchers attempt to see how acupuncture functions from a biomedical point of view. Some point to its impacts on fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds every one of our muscles and organs. Some indicate to acupuncture’s capacity to stimulate the limbic framework and autonomic sensory system. Therefore, acupuncture works in many ways and has proven to be the best alternative treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

This process promotes overall growth in a natural way. Due to its broader benefits, it is not only useful for normal children, its much more beneficial for children with special needs such as autism, learning difficulties, attention deficit disorder, hyper activity, delayed milestones, etc.

Otoplasty - 13 Deformities for which You Can Opt for It

Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery which corrects the deformities or absence of the external ear. Otoplasty originated in ancient India during 800 BC.

When should you opt for an otoplasty?

  1. Cagot ear: This is a defect where there is no ear lobe attached to the ear.
  2. Cat’s ear: In this condition the outer side of the ear is pulled forward. It gives the person a more feline appearance.
  3. Cauliflower ear: This generally occurs when your ear looks like a cauliflower. This is also caused due to hematoma that occurs because of severe trauma.
  4. Cleft earlobe: In this condition, there is a notch on the fleshy part of the earlobe and can be corrected by otoplasty.
  5. Constricted ear: In this condition, some of the cartilage is discarded by surgery and a new one is reconstructed.
  6. Cryptotia: An incision is made and the upper part of the ear is exposed by contraction.
  7. Darwinian ear: This occurs when the rim cartilage of the conchal bone (hollow next to the ear canal) is flat and not folded outwards. The term ‘Darwinian ear’ is derived from the British biologist Charles Darwin.
  8. Lop ear: People who have lop ear generally have a protruding ear with a central depression, producing a more ‘cup ear’ appearance. The helix is enlarged after surgery.
  9. Macrotia: In this situation the ear of the patient is very big as compared to his head. So the surgeon makes incisions on the lateral surface of the pinna (outer ear).
  10. Microtia: In this condition the pinna is extremely small and the whole ear seems much smaller.
  11. Question mark ear: This is a rare defect. There is an indentation between the cartilage and the ear lobe rim. This is also known as Cosman ear.
  12. Scroll ear: The outer edge of the ear protrudes forward in such a condition.
  13. Stahl’s ear deformity: In this condition the outer skin and cartilage folds abnormally giving an ‘elf’ kind of appearance.

Otoplasty is usually done to improve the appearance of the ear in severe cases and it is important to get a recommendation from more than one doctor or more than one ENT specialist before going forward with this procedure.
