Feel drowsy after lunch or dinner. Why? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Mr. XXXX, please go ahead with your question.
I am writing to inquire about my health.
sure, please go ahead
I often feel drowsy after lunch or dinner.
how has this caused you problem?
I dont know.
Do you mean you don't have any problem?
also headache sometimes.
I often feel drowsy. That is my problem.
You work in the night shifts right?
what is the solution for this?
And do you get time to sleep in the day time?
absolutely 10 hrs.
okay, but still you have this problem
You are right...
If you get good sleep in the day time I do not think there is anything major that you should be worried about
i know but why this happens.
this happens because if something called as postprandial hyperglycemia
would you explain that
it means. after you eat, there is a sudden surge in the blood sugar levels
and blood sugars activate a particular area in the brain
what should i do
the area is called satiety center
there is nothing much you can do about this
as this is a normal phenomenon
and does not require any treatment
i am taking seven seas tablets daily after my lunch.
what is seas tablets?
codliver oil tablets
you don't need to take so many
sometimes that can cause headaches
one after the lunch.
You can take about two to three in a week
also how should i increase my weight?
Other than that I don't think you need to do anything
You can increase your weight by eating healthy food
and exercising inmoderation
i eat everything
veg and non veg
then I suggest you eat a little more
i eat more than little more.
should i join a gym to exercise?
What that sentence means is, Whatever you are eating right now, you should eat more than that
No need to join a gym
simple jogging should suffice
i eat a lot doc.
Okay, what is your weight and height?
suggest a time.
55 and 5.9
How can I suggest a time? You know your life, you should be able to decide which time is best for you
55 and 5.9
hold on one minute while I check your BMI
what is BMI?
stands for Body Mass Index
sure take your time.
This is your BMI
and it is slightly low
meaning, yes you need to put on a little more weight
something like 5 to 6 Kgs
Hello Mr. XXXX, are you there?
how will i
apart from eating
You can take protein supplements
and you can increase the protein content in the food you eat
the best thing you can do is to get a good diet chart prescribed by a dietitian
And you can start working out in a gym to build muscle mass
when you go to gym, you will need eat even more than what you eat now
protein XXXXXXX diet is fish, egg, chicken meat
and cereals and pulses
protein supplements like?
you can get get a good protein supplement like protex
i eat all of this fish, egg, chicken meat
protex is good
How often do you eat fish, egg and chicken?
every sat and sun
I suggest you eat fish everyday
see if that works
what abt mutton?
if that doesn't work then, I guess you can't do anything about your weight
i will try
ha ha ha
Mutton is fine, but should be minimal as it increases cholesterol
i will definitely try fish.
thanks a lot doc.
i appreciate all your help.
