How to gain weight? M 28 yrs old and my weight is 60 kilos.Even though im taking food time to time not even incresing weight from past 2 yrs. Suggest me

Leave it alone!: Your weight is normal. Why do you want to gain weight? How tall are you? In a few years your weight is going to start increasing and then you will look back fondly at this time when you could eat what you wanted and not gain weight. You may wish to engage in exercise to try to increase your muscle mass. ...Read more

My weight keep increasing even though I exercise every other day. I wonder what can be the reason. I don't eat lot of unhealthy food or high quantities of food?

Keep a record: Of ALL the calories you consume and the exact amount of exercise and type and take this to a nutritionist or a clinician. You don't give your age or gender, but women over 50 must exercise at least 45 minutes a day to keep from gaining weight. And it could also be another medical condition. ...Read more

What are foods that are good for increasing bone density?

What are foods that are good for increasing bone density?

Bone density: Foods are not the answer.
You need a reasonable amount of calcium daily — milk is good for your bones.
You also need 1000 or 2000 units of vitamin D a day. They are inexpensive over the counter.
Put that all aside. Have you had a bone density test yet — not common or necessary before menopause unless you have clinical evidence of bone loss. ...Read more

Will increasing HGH make me grow taller? Some articles said that some foods contain HGH will also enhance the testerone lv, is it true?

HGH and growth: Baoanhn, I'm sorry my dear but hgh of any kind probably won't help you at your age. Once your growth plates(google it), fuse your vertical growth is finished and for most young ladies that happens around puberty. Taking hgh now would be a bad idea in my professional opinion. Don't buy into any foods or supplements either that promise growth, a nice pair of heels is a safer bet. Gl. ...Read more

Avoid processed food: Simple sugars and processed carbs should be avoided or limited. This includes any flour product. The fine grind makes absorption quick, and spikes your blood sugar which increases Insulin and promotes weight gain. Good fats such as olive oil and coconut oil are fine in sensible amounts. Eat a rainbow of organic vegetables and just enough protein. ...Read more

My symptoms are, food is not passing through my esophagus easily, seems like it gets stuck midway my chest area. No nausea, but increasing discomft??

Blockage: It sounds like there is a blockage in your feeding tube or esophagus. The pain is from food getting stuck on the way to your stomach. I would recommend a liquid diet with yogurt, Ensure and water. A barium swallow x-ray would be helpful to find where food is getting stuck. As we get older, nerves may not work as well and irritation in esophagus can occur. If you are vomiting blood, go to ER. ...Read more

I am experiencing pain in my abs, spots of red blood in my stool, diarrhea, and general fatigue. I have a stressful job. Usualy have to call off because the pain (1wk). Secondly I work in the food industry. Increasing frequency since 22 yrs old?

Blood in stool: Blood in stool is abnormal and needs explanation. At your age a malignant growth is unlikely. Possibilities include hemorrhoids, anal or rectal fissure, inflammatory bowel disease or inflammation of the rectum. An invasive intestinal infection is less likely. Since you're also experiencing abdominal pain, I favor inflammatory bowel disease and I recommend consultation with a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

I am 22, 5 ft, 121 lbs. I do exercise and don't eat fast food. My BP 110/90. What do you say about it? Need some suggestions and advices. Thank you!

Rest assured that it: Could be quite normal. Have it checked a few times by your Doctor and see what the readings are. Your Doc should then investigate to see if there is any cause for your high BP and if so, then that cause would need treatment first.
