You may be having some breathing difficulty. Heavy breathing makes one feel tired and sleepy. It is very common in rainy season. Try to do bit of jogging in the morning, if it is very tiring then take medicine from your local doctor preferably a chest specialist.

How to control my sugar fluctuations, I also take human actrapid insulin 15 units before lunch and 20 units before dinner. After lunch my sugar level is above 275 and before dinner above 200 HOW I MAINTAIN MY SUGAR LEVEL?

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at the sugar levels, it is clear that insulin dosage is not adequate. There needs a better titration of insulin dosage. If need be a new drug can be added like sglt - 2 inhibitor. According to me first concentrate on fasting glucose level, keep a target value of 110 mg. If level is much higher, then increase the night time insulin by 2 units every 3 rd day, till the target level is achieved. Then target post lunch level, and titrate insulin dosage similarly. Plus can look at adding above mentioned drug. Those measures along with diet control and exercise should help in controlling blood sugar levels. Thanks.

I am a loud talker I have very loud voice a heavy and harsh voice which cause embarrassment in public. How can I speak softly and can have a pleasant tone quality. Do I have any problem in my vocal cord.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think you have learnt this from your parents/grandparents or other important people, in your early childhood. But the good news is, you can" unlearn" this behaviour and" relearn" how to speak politely and softly. You can practice talking when you are alone, inside a closed room. After practising alone to speak softly, then while in public, please make conscious efforts, to speak slowly and softly. Tell yourself that you need to speak in a gentle voice and to achieve this, do not say anything on your own. Speak only when someone asks your opinion or when you need to talk. Make small sentences. Be careful while choosing your words. Make a list of words which you feel are harsh and try to replace it with milder words. Inform your family memebers about it so that they will not worry when they find you talking alone in a closed room. Please ask your family members and friends to help you in your efforts, by signalling you, when you start talking harshly/loudly. Many times it can be because of anxiety or anger. If you feel people are not listening to you then you are likely to talk in a louder voice. It there is some resentment or anger you are likely to use harsh words. Please check with yourself, what is happening. You already have awareness and acceptance about this, which is very appreicable. Now take the next step to make the necessary changes as mentioned above. All the best.

Hi there I want to know what is simple and natural medicine for PE. And how we control this.
Control can simply be by withdrawal or drinking cold water just before resolution or before getting orgasm repeatedly. But it's seen that people do not like to sacrifice pleasure. So our pe treatment package has excellence in'stambhan' (holding / delaying) ejaculation effectively.

I have a scar and it itches please know what it is there since 5 months and its on inner thigh of both limbs.
Please use Extra-virgin olive oil which works as a great skin moisturizer, facilitates healing and promotes skin renewal as it is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. It will also soothe your skin and reduce itching. • Simply rub extra-virgin olive oil or a combination of equal parts of olive oil and honey on your rash a few times daily until it heals completely. • Alternatively, you can add a little turmeric powder to some olive oil and apply it two or three times a day for a few days. Packed with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric soothes rashes and relieves itching. In addition to olive oil, castor oil and coconut oil help heal rashes naturally. A combination of vitamin E oil and cod liver oil is another popular remedy.

7 Habits That Help Prevent Stroke

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
7 Habits That Help Prevent Stroke
The simplest tips from experts:

This is one of the most dangerous and, unfortunately, one of the most common diseases, which is caused by bleeding in the brain. It can be so devastating that the restoration of the person would take years. And at the same time to recover before the end he could not. Meanwhile, a few premature steps will help you prevent a stroke or at least alleviate the consequences of the incident.

Blood pressure control:

High blood pressure is a guarantee of hypertension. And that, in turn, increases the risk of stroke, as well as contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease. Often hypertension generally does not manifest itself externally (for the time), so constantly monitor blood pressure. Reduce the intake of salt, drink and coffee. Prevention may also include monitoring of weight, regular exercise, and even control over stressful situations - but then you do not need any pills to lower blood pressure.

" revision" heart:

Heart disease can occur in humans at birth and occur throughout life. For example, as a result of hypertension, obesity, diabetes or high cholesterol. There are many effective ways to diagnose and treat heart disease, but it always depends on the underlying cause, that is the same, for example, diabetes. The best way to prevent heart problems, it's not skip regular check-ups by a doctor. Then the disease can be detected at an early stage, before it starts to improve.


Lowering cholesterol:

High cholesterol promotes occurrence of cardiac and cardiovascular disease, usually the result of a diet high in harmful fats. To reduce cholesterol diet requires a moderate fat intake" nenapryazhnye" exercise and sometimes medication assistance.

That no obesity:

Obesity is also a risk factor for stroke. The fact that people with overweight elevated levels of fats in the blood, they are deposited on the vascular wall and narrows them. Over time, they get clogged and completely, and are sealed to form clots - which eventually reach the blood to the brain. And in the end - stroke.

Diabetes under control:

Diabetes - a direct path to cardiovascular disease and problems with blood vessels in the brain. The cause of diabetes is a disturbance of blood sugar, and it can also be congenital or acquired. But in any case, it requires control of food intake, weight management, and sometimes medication to maintain proper blood sugar levels.

Smoke cessation:

When smoke in humans get tar and other harmful substances, they damage the intima. In such" gaps" immediately rush substances - inflammatory factors, as well as compounds of cholesterol. Due to the unwanted build-up of plaque and blockages in the already narrowed blood vessels develop dangerous disruption of the heart and blood vessels. And after a time there is a stroke or heart attack.

Stress management:

It contributes to the development of stroke due to the fact that mental over-voltage occurs acute ischemic stroke. The result is a brain hemorrhage. Other less common causes of stroke may be, for example, autoimmune diseases and disorders of blood clotting

For headache take tablet paracetamol and take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through a crescent steam inhaler, eight hourly and check your eye sight for refractive error and we also have to rule out sinusitis or migrane as the cause of headache after clinical examination.
