Brief Answer:
Advised Minoxidil

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX
Thanks for your information.

About <150 hairs fall per day considered as normal hair fall.
Yes,irregular diet and stress can cause hair fall.
Nutrition is very important.
Avoid oily,spicy,junk,fast food.
Eat healthy vegetables and fruits.Eat protein content food like egg,nuts,fish and sprouts.
Restrict hot beverages like coffee and tea.
Avoid dryness of hair.

If you have dandruff, dandruff causes hair fall. I would suggest you use anti dandruff shampoo.
Continue Biotin 10 mg tablets.Along with I would suggest you topical Minoxidil 5%(Mintop) twice a day for 3 months.It stops hair fall.This is over the counter medication.
At least you have to use this for 3 months to see good results.
If you will not see any better results then I would suggest you visit a dermatologist.

I would also suggest you get blood test to know your hemoglobin and thyroid hormonal levels.

Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any queries I will be happy to help you.

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2

What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
