Doctor, can I take maca root powder with ashwagandha powder? How much doses can I take per day.
Yes, you can take them both. You should never take raw maca though. Use the gelatinized form, or cook it first, or you will be in a world of gut pain that takes its time to subside. The peruvians who use it always cook it first.

I am 25 years old, my weight is 87 and height is 5'7. I was checking my oxygen level in pulse oximeter, my oxygen level always comes at 98/99 but my heart rate is normally 65/66 sometimes it comes to 47 and it's very fluctuating. Is there anything to worry?

Dear Lybrate user, the parameters given by you are not concerning except for the fall in your heart rate below 60, if this happens oftenly do get yourself checked, it is quite likely that the machine you are using is giving you false results. Nonetheless keep monitoring yourself and in case of any discrepancy get your self checked.

It depends on multiple factors like when was the cancer diagnosed in parents, what was the cause, did their ancestor also have a similar thing, or was it associated with just simple use of unwanted stuff. Varies from patient to patient. If you want a detailed explanation with regards to the same, kindly message me, I will try explaining in detail and try resolve your query.

Crp level is used for prognosis of an acute inflammation or infection, not for diagnosis, and as per your query their are many risk factor for cardiovascular disease not only crp, crp level is not an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, so, do not worry.

Hi lybrate-user, is your mother suffering from covid? How long did the meter show 86? It could mostly be a technical defect since it came to 98 immediately. I would recommend to check oxygen levels after mild physical work as it reflects the actual condition of the lungs.

Sir, this question is typical would we die if we not consume or cut off sugar forever in all form. Because some say you will die. Is it true?

Hello lybrate-user, I don't see any reason why someone would die by just cutting out sugars. Sugar is just a carbohydrate form, there are many foods and drinks which contain respective amount of carbohydrate, fats and proteins. Other than missing the taste of sugar nothing bad is going to happen. You need not worry.

Any well acclaimed brand will do, just do not go for cheaper or chinese brands. Few suggestions from my side will be like Dr. Trust, accu sure, Dr. Morepen, omron, bpl etc.
