Answered by Dr. Pratap VGM 8 minutes later
Brief Answer: quality of life Detailed Answer: Dear Sir Insulin has so many anabolic effects on the body like lipogenesis. If you supplement with insulin, it will help to maintain protein and lipid balances so that you will maintain weight and energy. Insulin deficiency causes loss of fat and protein mass, which in turn causes weight loss. Insulin increases the body defense systems by indirect mechanisms. So overall insulin is good. Leading manufacturers of insulin are novo nor disk and biocon. You can select your type of insulin from any one of these Thanks

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
