User:hw u doing?
Doctor:Im great, thanks, how can I HELP you today ?
User:dr. have you heard of the health drink NONI?
User:is this really good to health?
Doctor:As with many fruits, the noni fruit is a source of vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants.
Doctor:and you can definitely use it as a health supplement
User:ok fine dr. wherther its used as medicine for Diseases
Doctor:but the same effect can be provided by other many other supplements and capsules, containing B complex vitamins and antioxidents
Doctor:it is not a medication for any disease
Doctor:it is just a health supplement, which contains nutrients , in a concentrated form
Doctor:people who market it, say, that it is helpful for many conditions, like arthritis, etc , but such claims have not been confirmed by studies
User:hmm k
User:i have allergy
User:i heared having noni will cure that
Doctor:taking such medications can work as a placebo
Doctor:but there is no certainty, that it will cure the condition
User:hmm k is there any way to cure the allergy?
Doctor:In addition to taking such health drinks, you can try pranayama to improve your overall health condition and immune status
User:ho fine dr.
User:bcas am not able to take medicines contionusly
Doctor:also, try to avoid allergens by wearing masks, and being in the cold
Doctor:i understand
Doctor:but , since you are prone, to allergies, you should try to take precautions
User:am always in AC
User:that could be the problem for allergy
Doctor:and at the slight onset of allergies, taking the medications prescribed, can help prevent worsening the condition
Doctor:yes , it could be a cause for colds , due to cold winds blowing direct into the nose
User:is there any medicine to cure
User:this problem?
Doctor:Allergy is a broad spectrum disorder with the cause being a lot of causes
Doctor:without a complete assessment, of which system is involved, it is difficult to advice
Doctor:in many cases, structural abnormalities like polyps, nasal septum anomalies and sinus infections can be the cause of your symptoms
Doctor:first they need to be ruled out
Doctor:has this been done in your case ?
User:last week i gone for hole body check up
Doctor:have u done any tests in this regard ?
User:they told everything is fine
User:in nose they told i have sinus infection
Doctor:so why do u think, you have allergies ?
User:i have a short of breath and blocking nose some times
Doctor:so u have sinusitis ,
Doctor:has a CT scan or a X XXXXXXX been done
Doctor:have they ruled out a Deviated nasal septum ?
User:PNS x-ray was done
User:they told i have Deviated nasal septum
Doctor:so , that means that you have sinusitis , and that is not due to allergy issues
Doctor:you will need to undergo, correction of the septum, by a surgery
Doctor:and also antibiotics will be needed to treat your sinusitis
User:no dr. told that sinus issue itself bcas of allergy
Doctor:yes, sometimes allergy can worsen to have sinusitis ,
User:yes they gave anti biotics
Doctor:but sinus infections recurr again and again, when u have a deviated septum, as it blocks proper drainage of the sinuses
Doctor:hence in case, you have more then 5 episodes of sinusitis per year, then, it would be a better option, to get the septum repaired
Doctor:in case it is less than that, just taking medications, will be ok,
User:this is the first time am facing the issue
Doctor:, in that case, you just need to take the prescribed medicines , and you will get better with time
Doctor:in some cases complete recovery may take 2-3 weeks, but eventually complete recovery will occur
User:but am under medication for past 4 months
User:but my block is not fully recovered
Doctor:have u mentioned this to your doctors ?
User:if i expose to somke i have short of breath
User:he gave extra doseage this time
Doctor:may i know what medications are you on ?
User:as of now they gave some 7 tables
User:i know only one table name
Doctor:have they given you any nasal decongestents ? or nasal drops ?
Doctor:how often are u using them ?
User:every day night
Doctor:you use it once a day ?
Doctor:sorry, you can use it , on a as needed basis, when ever your nose is blocked , say once in 2-3 hours. Using this way, you can get relief from your symptoms.
User:ok dr.
