Hi Asha

Welcome to HCM

To reduce your son's life dietary habits should be changed. I think mainly his eating habits and life style is responsible for his overweight.

For weight reduction ideal diet plan involves consuming less calories per day than you burn. The concept is simple, but the implementation of it is a little more complicated.

I advice him to have more fibers and less sugar stuff like sweets and reduce the intake of rice. Regular exercise will be helpful.

NUTRILITE Glucose Health boosts your ability to metabolize carbs, fats, and protein to reduce food cravings and unhealthy snacking. But i advice you for conservative approach first if it fails then think of these.

Hope i have provided the information you needed.

Take care.

This peculiar symptom could be due to hypoglycaemia (a reduction in blood sugar level). First and foremost, please give him a course of deworming medicine (Tab. Mebex 100 mg 2 times in a day for 3 consecutive days, and Vidangarishta (an Ayurvedic medicine) for 2 weeks). If the problem continues, after 2 weeks, get his blood sugar level checked actually during the episode of hypoglycaemia (i.e. the time when he severely feels hungry) on 2 different occasions. If blood sugar level is documented below
