dear client
first of all i would want to know what is his weight and height..and is he under weight since begining or has he lost it over a priod of time
in case if its too low ..then we should look into the following causes of low weight
here they are
1} genetic
2}increased metabolic rate
3)lack of proper nutrition
4)thyroid disorders
5)malabsorption aur commonly called as indigestion
other rare medical causes are
1) chronic illness like tuberculosis

if his weight loss is associated with following symptoms then he needs a checkup
fatigue and early tiredness
irritablity
weakness
anemia
getting frequent infections
increased sweating
increased frequency of defecation
rapid weight loss

considering it to be a normal genetic built ..here are the following measures to restore weight
1) a balanced diet including proteins ans carbs..like eggs,,fish..pulses..milk..
2)nuts like walnut almonds figs daily
3} regular exercise to help utilize the nutrient effeciently
4)plenty glasses of water every day..around ten
5)AND MOST IMPORTANTLY A POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND PATIENCE

ITS GOOD TO BE A LITTLE UNDER WEIGHT RATHER BEING OVER WEIGHT

He should take a high protein diet along with strength training exercises. Some of the foods are Dal, peanuts, almonds, cashewnuts, soya, egg white and meat products. These should be taken in higher amounts in the diet. A regular aerobic exercise along with strength training is effective.

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

My heart flutters constantly. The doctors in the ER called them PVC and put me on a heart monitor to see why I'm having them so frequently. They are not painful just irritating.My blood pressure is low thyroid is good and I use to have anemia but that's good as well. All lab work came out good including X-rays So why is my heart skipping beats?

I have MS and several times a year, i take venefor infusions for anemia (not related to the MS). within a week of the infusion, my left foot always swells enormously and is painful to walk on. my doctors keep saying its not from the venefor, as venofer is just iron. However, I know this swelling occurs each time. Does venofer cause foot swelling?
