Dear lybrate-user, Alcohol spoils liver. SGOT is an important liver enzyme. Don't go only by one blood test. There are many other liver function tests and ultrasound abdomen shows the size and echopattern of liver. What is the medicine you are taking? Stopping alcohol itself will improve the liver functions. So try that the best treatment. All the best.

I am suffering from diabetes for last 2 month please give me some treatment about this deasies.
The right thing for you is visit a doctor in person. There are many options to control and manage diabetes. Before you start on any treatment, correct your diet and lifestyle. Take up activity, yoga or any kind of exercise. Take time for yourself and find out what could have triggered your diabetes. In 99% of cases, some stressful event triggers onset of diabetes in a person. It is true for any disease for that matter and it has been proved each and every time in our clinics. Resolve that problem if you can. After having tried and tested various combinations of the above, if yet your sugar levels ars high, you can try homeopathy. We have been able to reverse the symptoms and reports and patients have gone back to no medicines - both allopathy and homeopathy. Give it a thought!

How Your Own Mind Work

M.Phil - Psychology, Master in Psychology, Internship
Psychologist, Lucknow
How Your Own Mind Work

- There are two level of your mind: conscious or subconscious.
- You think with your conscious mind & whatever you habitually think sinks down into your subconscious mind, which create according to the nature of your thoughts.
- Subsconscious mind is the seat of your emotions & is the creative mind. If you think good, good will follow; if you think evil, evil will follow. This is the way your mind works.
- Your subconscious mind accepts what is impressed upon it or what you consciously believe. It does not reason things out like your conscious mind,& it does not argue with you controversially.
- Your subconscious mind is like a soil, which accepts any kind of seed, good or bad. 

Your thoughts are active and might be likened unto seeds. Negative, destructive 
thoughts continue to work negatively in your subconscious mind, and in due time will come forth into outer experience which corresponds with them.
- Subsconsious mind does not engage in proving whether your thoughts are good or bad, true or false, but it responds according to the nature of your thoughts or suggestions. Example if you consciously assume something as true, even though it may be false, your subsconscious mind will accepts it as true and proceed to bring about results, which must necessarily follow, because you consciously assumed it to be true.
- The law of your mind is this: you will get a reaction or response from your subsconscious mind according to the nature of the thought you hold your conscious mind.

First avoid sugar,sweetened juice,cola,soft drinks as the main ingredient is glucose and fructose.These turns into fat.Instead of these eat lots of fruits and vegetables which will help to burn fat.Use whole wheat,whole grain,oats.Take small amount of food.Do not skip meals.Eat egg,fish,lentil,cottage cheese,mushroom,tofu,peas,peanut.Use healthy fat in cooking in small amount.You can use coconut oil for loosing weight.Drink lots of water specially before meals.Use lukewarm water after meals.Take lukewarm water with lemon juice on an empty stomach in the morning.Take stress free rest.

I am having less weight according to my age. What should I do for the problem so that I can gain weight?

M. Sc. Foods, Nutrition & Dietetics, B.Sc-Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Visakhapatnam
I am having less weight according to my age. What should I do for the problem so that I can gain weight?
Dear, Whatever you are eating now, you should probably double it.  If you eat three meals a day, instead eat six.  You need to be eating every 2-3 hours, and each meal needs to be the size of a normal meal.  This is going to be difficult for a few weeks, because you’ll often have to force yourself to eat even when you’re not hungry.  500 extra calories a day = 1 extra half kg gained per week.  Whatever you’re eating now, add an additional 1000 calories (spread throughout the day), and you’ll put on 1 kg a week.  Not just any calories though…Eat a lot of good things – You need to eat a ridiculous amount of calories (probably 3500+ per day) if you want to gain weight, but you want to make sure most of those calories are GOOD calories.  If you want to build muscle, you want to eat healthy calories that are loaded with good protein, good carbs, and healthy fats…which brings me to my next point:Protein = building block for your muscles. Chicken, fish, meat, eggs, milk, almonds, peanuts.  Eat lots of this stuff, all the time. Thanku!

Dear lybrate-user, your weakness isn't related to your blood sugar levels. At your age ageing, poor heart function, muscular atrophy, nutritional insufficiency and mental stress or depression are common but overlooked causes of weaknesses. Visit a doctor in your area, get necessary tests done and treat the cause. Don't worry. Regards.

Honey and Cinnamon in Water Required Things: Organic Honey – 1 tbsp Organic Cinnamon Powder – 1 tsp Filtered Water – 1 cup Process: Take the cinnamon powder in a bowl. Boil the water and pour it on the cinnamon powder. Let the cinnamon powder steep in the water for 10 to 15 minutes. Now add the honey, stir the liquid and drink it. Drink this mixture twice a day, once in the morning on an empty stomach and once before going to the bed to boost up your weight loss process.
