I have taking astiriods like injection and tablets for my body growthness and result Is so best but I have to know is there any side effects like any thing.

Hye, The anabolic steroids abused by many are synthetic versions of testosterone, a male hormone. Both men and women naturally produce testosterone. But like all hormones -- which regulate the body's most basic functions -- throwing one's testosterone out of balance can have wide-ranging consequences. Anabolic steroids have many side effects because testosterone, which they mimic, has many effects in the body. The long list if side effects from anabolic steroids include: Shrinking of testicles, breast enlargement (gynecomastia), low sperm count, increased hair growth, deeper voice and reduced breast size in women, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, high cholesterol, rage, violence and aggression.

Dear Lybrate user. I understand. Some physical diseases are thought to be prone to be made worse by mental factors such as stress and anxiety. At any given time, a person's mental state can affect the degree of severity of a physical disease. Physical symptoms that are caused by mental factors are also called somatization or somatoform disorders. I think your problem is PSYCHOSOMATIC PROBLEM. I suggest online counseling and psychotherapy. Take care.

Dear User, I would suggest you join gym and with that have lots of proteins, in vegetarian we have soyabean, rajma, all pulses good in protein, include milk in your diet regularly. If this works it is very good, however I must also tell you that sometimes cause of unable to gain weight may be due to some past diseases for that constitutional Homoeopathic medicines are needed. Hope it helps, if you don't gain weight by this then consult me.

Please don't use any medicine. You should do yoga n exercise daily. In the morning take a glass of like warm water add one teaspoon honey and half lemon, mixed it and drink it on daily basis. And add one or two time green tea. And you should have dinner very light. And avoid cold drinks, fast food, oily. You can get better result by acupressure.

Hello, Do you have any stress/ tension or some other problem? Simple nutritional deficiency can also cause general weakness. Get your blood tested (empty stomach) for – CBC, ESR, AEC, Sputum examination, Widal, Peripheral smear for MP, Urine (R & M), Stool (R & M) first. (In case required, may advise you some other tests later). Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos., both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 1month.

Warm water is best as it is lighter to digest & boosts metabolism, which in turn, will burn fat. Cold water slows the metabolism, you won't be ablle to digest whatever you eat & will put on more weight.

all sugar containing foods are unhealthy for him. you need to give routine foods like Indian veg meals. portions of vegetable must be large. you need to cut potatoes and sweet fruits like mangoes, banana, custard apple, grapes etc. aple, strawberry , ajmun etc are better fruits. healthy life style like walking for 5 km per day is must.

Hello I am 22 year old male weighing 80 KGS. I go to gym daily and do workouts. However I have lot of fat and belly fat too. My trainer advised me to take protein shake and ZMA supplements. But I would like to gain daily protein through my food intake rather than going for all these powders and capsules. Please suggest me protein rich foods for daily consumption. Also I consume both veg and non veg foods. Thank you.

Hello sir. Im vegetarian so I think to take fish oil tablets. How many tablet should I take per day.
Depends what fish oil tablets are you planning to take. From natural and organic sources are the best. 1 tab per day. Better you should schedule an appointment for proper guidance where I will do your nutritional health assessment with a machine, make you understand your readings, will take your diet history, explain you what you can do to achieve your health goal, improving & customising your existing diet & deal with the deficiencies. All this would take one hour. You will see the results from 5 days onwards.

Hi below tips could help you start your weight-loss journery. 1. Never eat a snack out of a carton or a cover. Always use a cup or a plate to so you know how much you are eating. 2. Have atleast one bright colored fruit and one bright colored vegetable a day 3. Take a small snack box to office with almonds, walnuts and other dry fruits to satisfy your cravings 4. Try to have your dinner by 8 so that you are not too hungry and also make healthy choices at dinner. 5. People who eat breakfast have a better success rate at losing weight. 6. Beware of zero trans fat and fat free foods as you might end up eating high sugar and carb containing foods. 7. People who are emotional eaters learn to identify the emotion that makes you eat unhealthy food and try diverting your mind to something else you love 8. If your plates are too big trade them off for a 9 inch plates 9. Replace your weighing scale with a tape measure. 10. Share your weight-loss journey with a family member or friend so that you are accountable to each other. 11. Green tea atleast once a day will help you boost your metabolism 12. Sleep helps in repair and regulating your hormones. Sleep atleast 8 hours in a day. 13. Have fruits atleast twice a day 14. Drink water if you feel you are hungry to check if its hunger or thirst. 15. Lastly, keep a positive attitude and visualize yourself thin.
