I smoke at least 1 packet a day. I sometimes feel pain in my chest. What should I do?

You should consider quitting smoking. At the age of 21, smoking 1 pack a day is too much. It may lead to severe respiratory diseases in adulthood. Try nicotine gum for change, it's harmless n effective if you wish to quit smoking.

I have diabetics and cholesterol so how do I keep my self feet and healthy? What should I eat?
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then it is essential to start appropriate treatment with suitable drugs. Plus take a balanced but restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. As regards eating following points should be kept in mind: avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and highly processed food products. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, that will increase your fitness and give better sugar control. When in good control fasting sugar should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If you achieve this you will definitely feel healthy and fit. With regards.

Yes if taken more bear is harmful for general and heart health. Do eat well, a balanced diet with more seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items easily available. Do exercise in moderation. Get a basic heart tests done. Ecg, halter and blood for sugar and lipids and get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum.

Can HEPA filters lower the risk of cardiovascular disease? How serious are peanut allergies?
Hepa filters do prevent spread of airborne disease by trapping the germs, killing them by ultraviolet rays transmitted through them, indirectly these filters will help prevent heart disease as lungs and heart is one unit, if respiratory infections/ allergies / low levels of oxygen because of these does trigger a heart attack. Peanut allergies can be as serious as any other type of allergies but not deadly like sulfa / penicillin.

Hi when one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, to achieve good control tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units /l. If that is achieved then most symptoms are in control and weight reduction is also possible. As regards the other tablets particularly lpuineme, fdson they are really not essential, given as vitamin supplement. D3 is some times needed. But most important for you is to achieve strict control of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Dear lybrateuser, -Think positive & try to overcome the feeling of sadness - engage yourself in some activity like reading, doing your work, listening to music, follow a hobby, play a team game, socialize with friends as these will elevate your mood & heart rate will also become normal - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night as it relaxes the mind & relieves all stress & you feel fresh & active the next day.

Bypass surgery was done 2 years ago and kidney was removed 1 year ago. Bit there seems to be small papillary bladder tumor which is not causing any symptoms 2 diseases are not related. People do donate 1 kidney and live for years rest of their life with only 1 kidney and they lead a healthy lifestyle. Get ultrasound done as a routine every 6 months or earlier if you have any symptoms. For aftercare bypass surgery we are sure that you are looking after food and exercise regime and keeping bp and blood sugar levels under control if high. Regular moderate exercise is advised to keep the blood flow smooth.
