A 34-year-old member asked:

What is the maintenance phase?

Therapeutic dose: Maintenance phase begins when the effective therapeutic dose is reached. The effective maintenance dose is different for each person, depending on their level of allergen sensitivity and their response to the immunotherapy build-up phase. Once the maintenance dose is reached, there will be longer periods of time between immunotherapy treatments.

Maintenance phase can also refer to courses of chemotherapy for cancer that are not as intensive, but usually cover a more prolonged period of time.

Breathe: This is an important question with which we all struggle to some degree. For many people, prayer is an important source of internal peace. For others, relaxation exercises such as yoga and tai chi are helpful. If you are finding that you have anxiety that you can't shake, you should share that with your doctor to see if they have some other ways to help you.

Yes: If you are 20 lbs overweight, then losing it (in a reasonable way) will definitely improve your health in many ways including (but not limited to): risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart attack, stroke. But, check with your doctor first to make sure you are otherwise fit to start a diet/exercise program and to monitor any chronic disease you have, if any.

Is it possible to lose four pounds per week and still maintain a healthy lifestyle?

Dr. Ankush Bansal

Yes: Yes, it depends on how you're doing it. If you're maintaining a healthy diet and exercising, then that may be just fine. Remember, though, it's generally easy to lose weight at first because a lot is water weight. It gets harder as time goes on. Also, be sure to get good nutrition & take appropriate rest so you don't damage your organs or strain muscles. And follow up with your doctor regularly.
