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 ?

If you have already not changed them or if you are not serious about them because they are the only steps which would help you the most. Drugs just bring down sugar for a few hours and then would raise back again and your body can become slowly resistant to the same drug dose so first you will have to bring lifestyle modification(changes) in yourself. 1)Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, ...

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.
