My father is 78 years old and has been suffering from constipation for the last 2 years. He has also lost a lot of weight around 10 kgs in this time span. In the last couple of months he has been complaining that his abdominal muscles have torn due to bowel straining and now he says there is loss of muscle in his stomach area. Which is why when he lies down everything is fine but when he sits up and walks around he feels like he is carrying a weight in his stomach.

The doctors gave a verdict of idiopathic constipation and left it at that. His blood work is fine, haemoglobin levels, cholestrol etc. He still suffers from constipation. His prostrate is enlarged but results are fine. What is the solution to his stomach muscle problem ? Is it lack of exercise, lack of protein ? He doesnt have a pot belly and has never had and had always been physically active and fairly slender.

Treatments available for IBS - - Increase the level of physical activity. - Have regular meals and take t ...

had thyroid in childhood......while dieting consultant put me on two tablets for weight loss,,,,,Ebexid and Carnisure 500......after the diet plan i have stopped taking both the tablets......by periods have been delayed for 16 days now....can these two tablets be the reason for the same???

Hi, The first thing we want to rule out is whether or not you are pregnant,although there are many causes to missing periods but since you have history of thyroid and you have ruled that you can't be pregnant so i would recomend you to get a throid test. When was the last time when you got your throid test and if you got them recently then please attach the reports. There can be many more hormonal causes to it,and periods can be corrected by giving hormonal drugs which will cause withdrawl ble ...

After diet control I could reduce my weight from 85kg to70kg. My normal weight should be 65kg medically.I recently suffered from Dengue & Typhoid. I have recovered now. I have developed dark circles below my eyes. My weight is now 85kg again. Can I go for Dieting again

Hi, One of the common reasons to dark circles is that if you don't sleep well or if you are taking to much stress, then you will have to improve that,then second common cause correctable cause is anemia if your haemoglobin level is low then you will also have to improve that to remove under eye circles. Otherwise you can have one capsule vitamin complex daily and also you can use under eye creams which are available under many brands including loreal and vlcc so you may use many if there none o ...
