Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:Your anthropometry measurements including waist circumference are in ideal limits and I do not find any signs of over weight.

Doctor:Many find such localized masses hard to resolve.
Doctor:But eventually with good exercise, body toning and diet it resolves.
Doctor:As your current weight and waist circumference are in ideal limits, I do not suggest any changes in your dietary pattern.
Doctor:Continue the exercise you do. Add abdominal toning exercise such as sit ups.
Doctor:*Your gym trainer can give more information about these exercises.
Doctor:Avoid high carb diet like too oily, too sweet diet.
Doctor:They may take time to resolve.
