What exercises can to slim my chubby hands?

Make them stronger: Depending on your body weight, you may want to try shedding excess pounds - if you are overweight/obese and lose weight some of it will come off of your hands.

Try using a grip device, thumb and finger flexes, modeling clay and overall use of your hands to build strength. ...Read more

Protein shakes: You can drink protein shakes for a snack -- but you can also be wise about the protein shake you select. Slim fast has 18 grams of sugar and only 10 grams protein/serving. There are other prepared shakes with much less sugar + more protein that would be satisfying, and keep your blood sugar more stable. One is pure protein by gnc -- 1 gram sugar and 35 grams protein. Other good ones too. ...Read more

I am a very slim girl, so why do I have small fat pockets on only one side of each wrist? The one of my left wrist is clearly bigger. What is this?

Possible ganglion: What you describe is the likely a ganglion. This is a cyst which is a fluid filled pocket and in this case around a tendon that comes from overuse usually. Sometimes the fluid in the ganglion reabsorbs and sometimes it is drained by a doctor. Without a picture I cannot be sure this is what you have. Not usually harmful. If concerned see your MD. ...Read more

My hands are always cold. Even when I have a sweatshirt on. I am a male in my late 30's and have been feeling this way for a few years now.?

Color changes: What changes do you see? Do they turn white in the cold? This suggests raynauds. Are they more uncomfortable in the cold? In the heat? With certain activities? Is the circulation good. Are eh feet also cold? Does this occur in your relative? Dr hines suggested thyroid. You need a good evaluation. Finally this may just be normality for you and not an indicator of an underlying process. ...Read more

My hands are dark compared to my inner hands and body, i know this s due to sun light. Is there any remedy to make my hands back to normal colour?

My hands are dark compared to my inner hands and body, i know this s due to sun light. Is there any remedy to make my hands back to normal colour?

Sunscreen: If a one's hands are tanned, and he doesn't like the natural tanned appearance, he can use sunscreen on his hands whenever he is outdoors. Over time, his hands will become less tanned. Some people retain their tanned color for a couple of years, even if protected from the sun... That's just the way nature is. One can also visit a dermatologist for lightening cream, if very unhappy about the tan. ...Read more

If there is no visible abnormality try tylenol (acetaminophen) and if the pain does not go away in a couple of days or gets worse, see your doctor. ...Read more

Hand in a baggie (test) --mid 1960's- for being to thin!  i was 7 years old.

?Test for CF: Best i can guess is they were testing you to see if you had cystic fibrosis. That is doen by collecting sweat and testing it. We have better ways now of doing test, but I am guesing it was possible back in the 60's they may have colected sweat that way. Only a guess because you were thin and CF cn be a cause of that. ...Read more

My hands were very pretty until my 30's, but nowadays they have bumps and spots.  What does it mean?

Means you're normal.: Everyone accumulates bumps and spots as they age. I call them "marks of maturity". If one of these bumps/spots starts to itch or bleed or change color, show it to a dermatologist. Otherwise, don't worry; there's nothing wrong with getting older. In fact, as my father used to say, if you're not getting older, somebody is shoveling dirt on your face. ...Read more

Why only sometimes i notice the veins of the back of my hands are more visible and enlarged looking? I'm only in my 20's.

Swollen hand veins.: Hand veins can swell for many reasons but the most common is certainly hereditary . Other factors would be level of hydration, aging, sun exposure and loss of elasticity and volume. Actually, I am amazed at the amount of women that i see with bulging hand veins. They can be easily treated with laser or sclerotherapy and usually a combination of both. ...Read more
