Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
A well balanced diet is required for optimum growth of body.
Only high protein diet will not lead to healthy body growth.
I suggest you to take a well balance diet consisting of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, and other micro nutrients for healthy body.
Consult the physician for examination and investigations to look and manage your present fatigue.
Hope I have answered your query.

Doctor, I am madhumathi Andrews working in central govt. office as a Accountant, for the past two I was suffering from Acute Bronchitis, Docts treated with antibiotics and with nebulisation, Then on I was suffering from short breath, so I went to Mallaya Hospital and checked with pulmonologist, there they took nasak xray and chest xray ,then they said because of growth in the nose (almost like adenoids) or fibres , so they operated my growth and operated little extra flesh from , ie., my nose. But then on I shifted my house where there is full of pollution with smoke, which is near to close to main road, and our house is polluted with carbon smoke from the vehicles. So we decided to close our windows completely so that any smoke entres. But one more problem also started short breath. I feel very tight in my lungs when I breath, I feel like breathing more and more but with great difficulty by pressing to the side of my ears I have to take my breathe. Again I went and consulted Dr.Satish pulmonologist, he jsut examined me and did not do any lung xray but just asked to blow and he said I am very fine , nothing to worry. But now from the past two days I am getting litlle blood sputum , but no cold or cough. Kindly advise me immediately what I should I do . A word of reply from your end will be highly appreciated, I am much worried
