Hi, As you said that you are having this problem for a pretty long time, I have to say that it is important for you to know what exactly is night fall.

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. After intake of food it becomes worse and he also gets bloating. We have done all possible tests - colonoscopy, CT scan, ultrasound sometime last year and everything was clear. 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.

Secondly, sensation of carrying a weight in stomach. Both of them do occurs in IBS. But to be on safer side,I would suggest you to go for colonoscopy again because it was done 1 yr back and symptoms have aggravated few months back. Treatments available for IBS - - Increase the level of physical activity. - Have regular meals and take t ...

I am 31 year guy weight 85 kg. I am golng to gym for last 10 days.i want to reduce my weight. Should i take amway nutrilite protein powder.if i should take thrn when before work out or aftet

Hi, I would not tell you to have protein powder. Protein powder are not given initially. They are given only once you loose weight as that is the time when you are also loosing proteins along with fat out your body and you need it(proteins) for making body. If you take them they have to be taken after work outs. Protein shakes available in the market contain some sought of steroid which are usually not good in long run. Feel free to ask further questions ...

Hi My name is Priya and i am a software professional. I am very thin . I eat regularly and good nutritious food. Rarely i take junk foods. But there is no sign of my weight increasing. What can be done to gain weight?

Hi, The easiest way to gain weight is to add calories to your diet. For every kg of weight gain you will have to add about 1500-2000 calories to your diet. Your diet must include at least three basic meals, and two snack meals, which should include high calorie diet, shakes, ice cream, butter, oil, cheese, dense potato, spreads and bread. If you are not gaining weight even after increasing your diet, then you should have a medical check up done to investigate the root cause.as there are many c ...
