Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Skipping is an exercise where there is lot of pressure on the knee so it is better in case of young till the bones are fused as they can absorb shocks better and in case of adults and mature after the fusion of bones the strain and shocks will be on the knee and it may give rise to trouble in knee so it is better to avoid.Instead you can do jogging;swimming if you know;brisk walking on road and even on a treadmill.If at all you want to do it please get help from a trainer of physical exercise and get assessed your fitness before to avoid problems.
Thanks

Hello Doctor, First of all, thanks so much for this great service offered by all you doctors and this website. I am 32 years, mother of a 5 year old son and working in an MNC. After around 15 years of life, have decided to start of with a few stretching excercises along with rope skipping everyday morning just to gain some normal health benefits. My question to you is on the rope skipping that i am doing from a month now with just a count of 100 to begin with, will this have any impact on my uterus(also to mention that my monthly cycles are regular till date, thanks to god :)), as i have heard lot of elders advice that after the age of 30, females should not do witht he rope skipping excercise.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
