My hight is 5.5 and weight was 66.7 but now it is 64 kg. My doctor has prescribed me TONACT 20 , FINATE 160 , ECOSPRIN 75 once daly before bed time. I am a school teacher. I did not do any exercise earlier but now I am having morning walk and running daily. I love to eat various kinds of food but now I am completely puzzled, what to eat and what to avoid. I shall be highly obliged to you if kindly suggest me what should I have in my daily diet and what to shun. Please also tell me whether I am on proper medication or not.
