Doctor, I wanted to know if bodybuilding supplements have any side effects or not?

Doctor, I wanted to know if bodybuilding supplements have any side effects or not?
Hye. Supplements are to be taken only when your body's needs are high or if you have a deficiency of a particular nutrient. Supplements do not replace meals or a healthy diet. A supplement can only be as good as your diet is. So, if your basic diet is not good supplementation is not of much use. And in fact if supplements are just randomly added to the diet without evaluating the body's needs, it can cause mild to severe side effects.

Ca ovary usually respond well to chemotherapy but those who dont respond, results are not good, but they should keep on changing chemo. Best is Avastin based chemotherapy, which is a targeted therapy.

7 Tips to Safeguard Your Hearing

7 Tips to Safeguard Your Hearing

Your hearing is one of the most important function your body carries out and sometimes you realize that you are losing your sense of hearing, when it is too late to get it back. There are two main reasons for this. One of the reason is age and the other is when the inner ear's hair cells break down and do not pick up sound well.

Here are 7 ways to safeguard your hearing:

  1. Try to avoid loud places: It is not advisable to go to places where you have to shout to be heard, such as in a street, a concert or a construction site.
  2. Buy low noise rating equipment: The equipments in your house will make sound that you hear the most. Try to avoid these equipments by buying appliances with a low noise rating.
  3. Wear hearing protection at loud places: However, it is true that it is not always possible to avoid loud noises. This is when you need to get hearing protection. Earplugs and earmuffs are two of the best ways to make sure that even when you are in a loud place, your hearing does not get affected. Earplugs and earmuffs generally reduce sound by 15 to 30 decibels, which may be crucial to make sure that later in your life, you do not lose your hearing.
  4. Avoid smoke: Smoking raises your chance of hearing loss. Second hand smoke does the same thing. Therefore, try to avoid, both smoking and secondhand smoking. 
  5. Remove earwax properly: Earwax cannot be removed properly using a cotton swab. Instead, you should use an irrigation kit. Remember this as otherwise; the earwax could muffle your hearing.
  6. Avoid medications which reduce hearing: Certain medications increase hearing loss. Therefore, double check with your doctor to make sure your medicines will not make you lose your hearing.
  7. Get your hearing tested: Finally, get your hearing tested as identifying the problem early on can help stop worsen the situation.

Due to wrong dietary habits. With lack of exercise and also family history of dm any of above or all causes dm. Go for yogasana like gomukhasana which stimulate pancreas to secrete more insulin that reduces your medicine doses. Eat only natural foods. Dm has no permnant cure. But we have medicine that causes very effective control of dm. Consult.
