Hair specialists out there,

I'm 19 and since a year i've been finding grey hairs, there are 30-40 strands of them, and when ever i shampoo i find atleast 50 hair strands and I use nizoral and head7shoulders twice a week. I never oil my hair and use Himalaya protien hair cream everyday. Please help me out.

Have you read the information that comes with Nizoral? The possible side effects do include hair loss. It would probably help the experts if you describe the condition that leads you to use medicated shampoo, especially quite a strong one like Nozoral

Hey Guys,

Parents are getting older and I want take care of them. Is their any prescribed set of tests which can be done once in quarter/month so as to ensure they are into best of their healths.

1) Dad - Age 58 - Takes regular medicine to control High-Blood Pressure, otherwise fit and active. Have gone through some 2-3 small chest pain strokes with faintness which was diagnosed as a normal one due to high Blood Pressure.

2) Mom - Age 48 - A low-Blood pressure patient, though do not take any such medicine on regular basis. My Nanni is a diabetic patient so I am doubtful that she'll be getting the same in heritage, but by god's grace, she hasn't been diagnosed diabetic till now.

I had heard about some packages offered by Ranbaxy and Apollo where-in they offer all tests ranging from glucose, sugar & heart. Are they worth taking over-all care of a person ??

Kindly do suggest some precautions which can be taken up keep them fit & fine.


Cheers

@ashthedivx

There are these complete health check up packages offered by big hospitals all over India. Are they worth it?? I seriously do not know. What I know is that they give you an indication of the condition that your body is in. After that, it is you who has to control your diets, do necessary exercises etc to look after your body. The pricing may vary depending the brand of the hospital you visit.

My dad is a diabetic and he takes these complete check-ups once or twice a year. Based on these reports, he takes suggestions from family doctors and controls his diet (although he forgets the diet sometimes)

Hi All - any idea what Rsr fall in v2 in an ekg report means? Can't find anything in google about rsr (except rbbb Right bundle branch block - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

This report was after I had some pain on left side chest while inhaling deep (for last 4 days). However my doc says the rsr finding can be ignored, could be a prob in ecg machine. Blood tests are normal (23 mch 30 mchc but 6.1 RBC), although a lipid profile report is pending (will do it tomorrow on empty stomach).
The doc indicated the left chest pain maybe muscular, as I workout in a gym regularly (not worked out for last 8 days though). OR it could be acid reflux. He has given me aceclofenac/paracetamol tablets and omeprazole capsules for few days.

If anyone has any clue of the rsr let me know

^^ checked with apollo clinic doc and after some detailed physical examination of my breathing - he said I had pleurisy ( Pleurisy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) possibly from some old bacterial infection and gave me amoxicillin (500mg with clauvanic acid 125mg), an anti-histamine olopatadine hydrochloride, and rabiprazole (proton pump inhibitor). Lets hope things get better!

Edit - he hinted that the right bundle branch block is normal in some people - if its left bundle branch block then it is a problem!

Default Advice Needed

Hi All,

I have recently had a surgery for Hernia. Though I am now feeling fairly healed up, does anyone know what would be the suitable time frame / gap one needs to give before resuming driving post hernia operation. I am only mentioning city driving (home --> office) and not with respect to a long drive.

Any advice would be very helpful.

I assume it was a groin hernia. If it was done by laparoscopy there should not be any problem in driving within a few days. If it was done by the open method, you can drive as soon as you are comfortable doing it. Most of the driving actions in the leg are at the ankle level and should not stress the groin area. What you need to avoid is lifting heavy weights(like a bucket full of water) for about 3-6months. Generally not to raise the pressure in the abdominal cavity(chronic cough, constipation )(any activity that requires the abdominal muscles to tighten)

Thanks for the info Deep Blue. Though mine was a Laproscopic surgery, but the doctor had asked me not to drive for atleast a month. So wondering if I need to wait that long.

If the operating surgeon has advised you, then there's no need to stress yourself to drive again. He's done work on you and knows best. Relax and take a break.

Default Need help from pediatrics

I have a query for an pediatrics or doctors in general - my son sweats abnormally. His sweating is very profuse even if he exerts even a little bit it looks as if he has just had a bath. He is 5 years old now and this issue is observed ever since he has started crawling/walking. Have checked with a lot of doctors but they say its normal and should gradually reduce as he grows up. Now he is goint to turn 6 now but i dont see any improvement in the amount he sweats. Now that it is summer i am getting even worried. The main issue is here that i have to keep close watch on his sweating since if i dont keeping wiping his sweat often he ends up having cold and chest congestion and stuff. Can someone please let me know if at all its normal, and if not then how do i go about finding a cure for this.

The idea of laparoscopic surgery is that the patient is up and about early. Laparoscopy avoids cutting through the muscles which causes most of the pain and hence immobility that you feel after surgery.
But of course, you had better follow your surgeon's advice.
