Brief Answer:
Please provide me further information.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

I understand your concern.

Intake of Amino acids with Proteins will alter body metabolism to some extent and hence these symptoms.

I can guide you better if you provide me exact details of Amino and protein products taken by you as metabolism varies with individual amino acids.

Amino acids if taken with Slow proteins vary in their metabolism and help in body building.

Hence I need the protein and amino combination details in specific.

Post your further queries if any,

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Symptoms are due to protein supplements

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I understand your concerns.

The symptoms in your case are possibly related to the ingestion of these protein supplements.

Few supplements are known to cause erosive changes in the stomach and esophagus producing symptoms like struck throat, indigestion and altered taste.

I advise you to stop these supplements for now, wait to see if symptoms improve and reintroduce them after 2-3 weeks to see if they recur again.If symptoms reproduce, then it is time to stop this product permanently.

With regards to frequent urination, this is common in individuals attending gym sessions due to hypermetabolism in the body.

This will resolve soon.

Meanwhile, I recommend oral tablets of Nexprofast and Syrup Aristozyme to aid in digestion.Please check with your doctor if he shares this view and if can prescribe them to you

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.

Get a thyroid profile foe screening

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

This chilling sensation should not be a major concern.

In case the symptoms if severe, I advise you to get a complete thyroid profile blood test.

Further management if any, is based on test results.
