Probably developed haemorrhoids. Just drink plenty of water and eat plenty of roughage to keep the stools soft.

It is very common to have muscle twitches. Common causes are fatigue of the muscle or dehydration. Just drink plenty of water and wait and watch. Usually it subsides by itself.

Simply stop eating brinjal completely for the rest of your life if you are sure that you have brinjal food allergy. That is the remedy.

It is good. There is no prescription for it. You can take different kinds of nuts in convenient proportions. Just don't stuff yourself with it.

I had detected hyper thyroid in Aug 2015, t3-300 and tsh was 0.01. I was suggested to take neomercozile 20 mg for 30 days and then increase dose to 30 mg for next 30 days and 40 mg for 1 year. After 30 days I felt some changes so I did checkup and found that t3, t4 within range but tsh -32, someone suggested to stop pills immediately and I did the same. Few months back I again checked, tsh came down to 5.5, but last month its 8.5. What to do?

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
I think you were having thyroiditis when you were checked initially. During the thyroid damage & inflammation, a lot of thyroid hormone is released at once into the body. So, the reports suggest hyperthyroidism and so, you were treated with the correct medicine. But, I would have followed up with thyroid tests every 2 months because once, thyroiditis resolves and thyroid gland is damaged as a result, patient goes into hypothyroidism which is what your reports are suggesting after you stopped the medications. For TSH level of 8.5, if you do not have any symptoms, you need not take medications. It is called SUBCLINICAL HYPOTHYROIDISM. Repeat the tests every 3 months and if TSH level is still rising, then consult a physician or a medical endocrinologist for appropriate treatment and advise.

It is a consanguinous marriage. Medically, there is high risk of transmitting any dormant genetic diseases to the offspring (future children). The scientific advise here is to avoid marriages with genetic relations. The closer the genetic relation, the higher the chances of genetic diseases in future children.

I alway sweat from my palms and feet. No matter winter or summer. I always sweats. No matter where I am. please help me what to do? I am facing this problem from birth .but I am facing this more in teen age. I am 16 year .and my height and weight are 172 and 55. please help me.

It is hyperhidrosis. It is genetic. Some people have a body type which causes them to sweat excessively. It is not curable but you can adjust your lifestyle accordingly. Get used to it mentally. Use gloves on your hands so that you can do your work safely. Other people are well aware of this condition. Anxiety will usually aggravate it. So, try to stay calm.

Drink plenty of water and have lots of roughage such as onions, batanas, bananas, green leafy vegetables etc. Get a thyroid test done since you are also overweight.

The first option for any weight loss is appropriate diet and exercise. Avoid shortcuts. Not good for your health overall. Liposuction is not a permanent procedure. You will have to keep repeating it again and again.

How to grow my penis. How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

How to grow my penis. How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?
There is no medical way to grow your penis. Only surgical. You have to consult a cosmetic or plastic surgeon for that. Preferably, you stop drinking alcohol completely. Otherwise, limit to 30 ml/day. Never binge drink and monitor your liver function tests. Yes, your tolerance decreases with aging.

No. Just make sure it does not get swallowed. That is all. Do not apply it on broken skin or wounds. Otherwise, you can use it as long as you want.

I am a 41 years old male. Since last few months I am having problems having regular erections and maintaining an erection for long enough time required for sexual intercourse. My height is 5 ft. 7 inches and weight is 70 kgs. I am taking the following medications for my BP, cholesterol and thyroid problems: Natrilam 5 mg once a day, Roseday10 once daily and thyronorm 37.5 Mcg once daily. My cholesterol is normal since the last 4-5 months but the Dr. Is insisting that I continue Roseday10 for few more months and then shift to roseday5 for another few months before stopping cholesterol medication. My thyroid profile is also normal since the last few months but since my tsh is around 2.5 the Dr. Has asked me to continue with thyronorm 37.5 and shift to thyronorm 25 once the tsh value drops to under 1.Actually I am a regular runner and run for 1 hr a day for 4 days a week doing around 11-12 kms each time. Plus I also play tennis regularly. But since due to thyroid related lethargy.

First, you are hugely mistaken if you think the correct treatment for cholesterol and thyroid problems is to stop treatment after they return to normal. You seem to be prejudiced against modern medicines. Both these problems are chronic diseases and hence, require treatment lifelong. Your doctor is just trying to avoid an argument with you and just urging you to continue the medications for your own good health. You somehow do not seem to trust him. You can refer to any medical guideline online for thyroid and cholesterol treatment to see whether it is given anywhere that treatment has to be stopped when reports are normal. IT IS NOT GIVEN ANYWHERE. They are age related chronic diseases and they are to be treated lifelong so that more serious problems do not happen just like diabetes is treated. Secondly, everyone ages and after that their exercise capacity decreases gradually. Has it occurred to you that the problem is that you are doing too much exercise without adequate rest?

The problem is usually anxiety from emotional stressors. Please relax. Do meditation and regular physical exercise. Simply speaking, the present generation has more mental stress than physical stress. Mental stress disturbs sleep while physical stress enhances sleep.

I know of no difference between buffalo meat and other forms of red meat. As far as I know, there is no specific health benefit compared to mutton or venison or duck meat.

Why are you worrying? It is completely normal. Why do you want to overcome it? Everyone has sexual feelings and almost every male watches porn. They just do not say it out loud because it is considered a sin in all religions in our country and they feel women will think bad of them. Then you start feeling guilty and then you start having emotional problems and psychiatric disorders. It is not a sin to fantasise. If you think, a normal healthy human being has control over his thoughts, you are mistaken. He has only control over his actions. Why do you think movies have item songs? Aren't they erotic or romantic? Aren't a majority of women and men watching them? Even women watch porn nowadays. The problem here is with your beliefs are unrealistic and that is what is causing you emotional anxiety. If you are not doing anything wrong or harming anyone, then why do you want to feel guilty about or stop it.

If you have lost that much weight within a few weeks without dieting or exercise, then it needs to be evaluated by a doctor. It can be infections or diabetes or thyroid problems etc. There are several reasons. Consult a physician immediately.
