Doctor insights on:
Retinal problem: While this can be a symptom of retinal detachment, tear or vitreous detachment it is more likely due to hypertension. Zig zag lines can also be a sign of ophthalmic migraine.

One way to accelerate your ability to do pull-ups is to do "negative" pullups.
Do as many pullups as you can (even if it's only one or two).
Then stand on a block, so that you can use your legs to assume the pullup position (bar to chin), and then let gravity pull you down, resisting all the way. Repeat these "negative" pull-ups until you are exhausted.
Repeat the regimen every day. ...Read more

Confusing: Eosinophils are a group of white blood cells (WBCs) that fight infection from parasites and fungi. It is normal for them to make up a really small proportion (e.g. 1%) of your total WBCs. But I find it odd that they would register 1% and also 0.00 on the absolute count. Not AT ALL medically concerning, but the math seems weird. I would ask the doc that ordered the lab, ok? ...Read more

I'm wondering if I eat a zero point food, for example, one strawberry, and then I have another one?

How to get a perfect size zero figure. I do cycling for 30 min daily what else can I add to my routine?
Nutrition & exercise: 1st, let's be clear. There is no "perfect" size. Size 0 is no better than size 2 or 20. Cycling is an excellent form of exercise. Engage in any physical activity of your choice since you need to do something for the rest of your life. Be prepared to eat healthy - lots of brightly or darkly colored fruits & veggies, healthy fats like olive oil & avocados plus lean protein. Focus on getting healthy. ...Read more
