Mouth ulcers. Cure? What does the tab Selenium do? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
am doing great
guess am chatting with you for a second time now
did your headache get relieved?
remember i checked with you for headache!!
oh wow you remember !!
have reduced tea intake
did you try and destress?
went to eye check up also , he suggested eye vision is perfect and said the same - to reduce tea intake and has prescribed a tab called Selenium 10 mg to be consumed for 30 days in night after food
just wanted to check with you on what does this tab do?
Its one of the minerals that is required in our body in very small quantities
is it actually advisable to have for 30 days? as i am not having any headache since i started having that tab for the past 2 days
Its a nutritional supplement and we give it like a preventive measure
any side effects?
i developed mouth ulcers with it
at the dose you are having, its safe
Its not related to the selenium
is the pain subsided becasue of the medicine? what happens when i stop it after 30 days
its possible that you have a co-existing B complex deficiency
Its not related to the headache
Actually, there are a lot of indications for this
You would need to confirm with your physician why has he given this
mouth ulcer came the next day of having the tab
its not related, I can assure you that
Even if you stop the drug, nothing will happen
Take plenty of fruits and vegetables
oh he gave the tab for headache only , and said to stop tea and eat properly
till the ulcers become ok
Eating properly is a pre-reequisite XXXXXXX
You'll keep on having multiple problems otherwise
ok doc.... will do
i understand doc
try and destress
The headache will go away
and eat properly
both is a must
can milk be a substitute for tea instead? he also asked me to reduce oil stuff and cheese
i do not have them often though
you can take upto 500 ml of milk/curd in a day
If you exercise regularly, you can take them once in a while
which i dont!!
You'll feel the difference
Start with around 15 minutes in a day
and gradually build it up
well!! thanks doc, will do for sure, just one more question; will brisk walking help in reducing weight
sure Yes it will
but you would need to do it for atleast 50 minutes
okie!! thanks Doc
but eating properly is the most important thing
eat every 2 hours
a small meal like 1 idli, 1 fruit
thats all for now, have a great day!! yes i will surely eat properly, will catch up with you for diet measures also, i need to reduce weight, will try your regime.
can i catch up with you on this tomorrow?
