I'm a boy of 29 years old and following bodybuilding exercises. I drink a cup of casilan 90 milk powder daily. Is it ok or has any side effects pls?

Powdered milk: Is ok but you might do better w/protein powder which probably has more nutrition in it. I am not familiar w/the brand of milk powder you are taking. Protein is good to restore muscle fibers after they are torn apart by workout. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I am 20 years old slim and I joined gym bodybuilding after each day exercise I take supplement which has70mg cholesterol30gr protein is it alright?

Sounds good: Once a day on that supplement should be fine. Specifically, your protein goal would be one gram of protein per pound of body weight to support a weight training regimen. Get the rest from leaner protein rich foods. ...Read more

I am 28 years old man with 70 kg weight. I want to use steroids for bodybuilding?

Bad idea: Steroids have many horrible side effects. Some of these include shrinkage of the testicles. Also, you will ultimately get weaker when stopping the steroids. Stay away from steroids. Eat lots of protein and work hard. You'll get results. ...Read more

What to do if I am 18 years old is it a good idea to take testosterone boosters for bodybuilding?

What to do if I am 18 years old is it a good idea to take testosterone boosters for bodybuilding?

Bad idea: Most of these supplements marketed over the internet do not work and are a waste of money. Some are prohormones that are either illegal or have not yet been classified as illegal, but if they increase your male hormone levels, they will cause your own body to stop making testosterone. When you then try to stop the supplements you will get withdrawal symptoms. Safety of these pills is unknown. ...Read more

I'm 20 years old and lost over 180lb. I have excess skin. Is their any way the skin can go back to normal shape without surgery. Can bodybuilding help.

I'm 20 years old and lost over 180lb. I have excess skin. Is their any way the skin can go back to normal shape without surgery. Can bodybuilding help.

Not really: The aggressive body builder could put on 5-10 lb of muscle a year (without steroids) but this would not be enough bulk to occupy the mass lost through so much weight loss. Time for you to look into a way you can finance the work. ...Read more

Hormonal: I am not sure what level you are competing at, but use of exogenous testosterone to enhance your performance is tested for by wada and may result in your disqualification. However, the main side effect that is proven is suppression of gonadal function, which usually returns within a few months of discontinuing use of the drug. The evidence supporting most other adverse effects is equivocal. ...Read more

Hi I'm aymen 19 years old 79kg weight I start bodybuilding workouts I wanna now if I can use whey protein and if he has a side effects?

Hi I'm aymen 19 years old 79kg weight I start bodybuilding workouts I wanna now if I can use whey protein and if he has a side effects?

Body building/ Whey: Many of the powders/supplements contain whey as the source of extra protein as a substrate for muscle and body building. Generally they are safe. If a person doesn't exercise appropriately, it can be just a source of extra calories. So taking extra whey does not mean you will build muscle alone. Vegan/vegetarian options exist, with a soy base. I have seen new allergic reactions to whey as well. ...Read more

Hi I am 16 years old I am play bodybuilding can I take animal pak multivitamin? Or it will effect my height or livers or kidney growth badly?

Hi I am 16 years old I am play bodybuilding can I take animal pak multivitamin? Or it will effect my height or livers or kidney growth badly?

Why bother?: It's fine to take a multivitamin if you want to, but don't waste your money on expensive vitamin supplements. They won't help you build muscle, and they're of no benefit if you're already eating a healthy diet. You can spend the money you save on gym membership and muscle shirts. ...Read more

Hello, I am 21 years old and am thinking to take DHEA as a supplement for Bodybuilding. Will it help me to gain muscle mass? Could you please guide?

Muscle mass: I am a strong advocate of eating natural proteins to increase the muscle mass: egg white, edammame beans, quinoa, beans, lentils, teff. Greek yogurt to mention only few. I am violently against DHEA. ...Read more

Is it good for a 13 year old boy to exercise (weight training and cardio)?

Is it good for a 13 year old boy to exercise (weight training and cardio)?

Sure, but...: Of course a 13 year old should exercise, and exercise for all of us should contain both "weight" and "cardio". This should not even be considered exercise, but a part of good lifestyle. Now if you are asking about formal, heavy duty weight training, it can be done by age 13 but should be under the supervision of someone used to working with growing teens to avoid overuse which can occur with teens. ...Read more

Weight: Weight loss is such a frustrating thing. Our bodies evolved to hold onto weight, and it can be very difficult once a plateau is reached. I have to say, that losing 30 pounds is amazing, so congratulations. You are doing everything right. You might need to "jump start" your weight loss by a change in exercise program. You may want to consult a personal trainer, or ask a staff member at your gym for more variety in your routine. Again, congratulations on losing 30 pounds, that is fantastic. ...Read more

Probably normal: Low eosinophils are often normal. It is impossible to say in an individual case like yours without a full history.
Alcohol intoxication and over production of certain steroids in the body (such as cortisol) like from working out are causes. If you are a health regular exerciser your doctor would probably not mention it. ...Read more

M 22 year old girl virgin. I do heavy weight training exercises in gym can doing squats, lunges, & exercising on leg press machine in gym break hymen?

No, but...: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen. Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon girls and women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more
