My triglycerides is 230 ; LDL cholestrol direct 122; non HDL Cholestrol 143 ; very low density lipoprotoen 46. Fasting sugar : 164 HBA1C : 7.9 SINCE 5 YEARS TAKING VIDAGLYPTIN PLUS METFORMIN 50/500 THIS REPORT WAS ON 13TH APRIL. I NEGLECTED DOCTOR ADVISE AND DID NOTHING AS I WAS OTHERWISE BUSY. EARLIER I USED TO WALK 4 KM IN PARK EVERYDAY WHICH I DISCONTINUED AS I BECAME OTHERWISE BUSY. NOW I AM QUITE UNFIT. PANTING, GETTING FATIGUED AND I CAN FEEL THE NEGLECT. I think all the above values must have further shot up. 5 days ago i resumed walking 4.5 kms and 5 days ago started taking Rosovastatin 10 mg at night. Continuing vidaglyptin plus metformin 5p/500. Have also completely given up rice, sweets since 5 days !! What else can i take ? My wife asking ne to take soaked Methi seeds in morning. By the way, my age is 74. Weight 79 kgs I am very depressed as i neglected which i usually do not do. I am mentally reconciled to 90 days cure period. Pls advise ways to expedite . Will be much appreciated. Thanks profusely.
Ans: Hello. You are doing all the right things and it is never too late. Don't be stressed. Even that will only increase your sugars and BP. To speed up the results, you can try intermittent fasting. It is when you eat during about 8 hours of the day and do not eat for about 16 hours. During those 16 hours of fasting, you can drink non calorie fluids and eat cucumbers. You can have methi seeds in water as advised by your wife. It will help reduce sugars a little more. In addition, try some stress busting activities like yoga, breathing exercises, pick up a hobby or get involved in some community activities that you believe in. All these will help you stay happier and therefore reduce your sugar levels additionally.

My name is Sooriya, and I am writing to seek your guidance on a multifaceted set of goals I am committed to achieving in the coming years. I am currently 31 years old, standing at a height of 175 cm and weighing 89 kg. Over the past few years, I have actively engaged in a daily fitness routine, incorporating brisk walking and other exercises to address my weight management goals. Despite a successful reduction from 110 to 82 kg in the past, recent circumstances led to a weight gain, and I am determined to attain a weight of 70 kg or below. While personal constraints prevent me from joining a gym, I have dedicated an additional hour to my daily exercise routine. However, one of my challenges lies in frequent consumption of meals outside, even though I practice moderation. I would greatly appreciate any insights or recommendations you may have to help me effectively address this issue and achieve my weight loss objective. Additionally, I face the challenge of managing ADHD. Although I am currently on medication, progress has been limited. My goal is to overcome ADHD without medication, and any guidance or strategies you could provide in this regard would be invaluable. On the professional front, I am committed to excelling in my job, considering the responsibility of taking care of aging parents with a limited salary. I aim to become proficient in Carnatic music, having dedicated 20 years to the art and completed a diploma in first class. Simultaneously, I am learning German with the goal of clearing the A1 level. In the broader scope, my aspirations include becoming a pro in my job, achieving proficiency in German, excelling in Carnatic music concerts, and obtaining an additional PG degree. Furthermore, I am resolute in settling down, reducing my weight to 70 kg, and ensuring overall fitness by the age of 33. I acknowledge struggles with focus, procrastination, and a lack of proactiveness in my work, and I am actively seeking guidance to overcome these challenges. Your insights and recommendations would be highly valued as I embark on this journey towards personal and professional development. I appreciate your time and consideration.
Ans: It is good that you know yourself - both positives and your limitations. Everything is possible if you keep a balanced mind, along with your zeal - this way you can focus your energies in the right place. Therefore, to control the mind - meditation is key. I suggest you explore some of the Vipasana kendras near your residence. Be careful of misleading online videos and search for a good yoga/ vipasana teacher.

Always changing a job may not be the solution.
Firstly have a conversation with your manager and voice out your aspiration and what will keep you motivate.
List out the kind of courses or trainings you may want to pursue to enhance your professional experience.

This will help you learn a new skills and drift your thought of been dis motivated. Mostly importantly learning a new will only do good for your career opportunity.
If incase there are no roles within the team then you may look for within organizational roles to meet your ask.
Do some research how the industry is trending this will help you more equipped when you those conversations with your manager.

Hi My name is sai prasad aged 53 years and recently i attempted suicide and gracefully survieved. As my spouse is having suspection that I have illegal connection with other ladies, which I explained so many times that i do not have any illegal contacts. But recently she behaved in different manner and we both went to urology doctor to remove my genetic organs. But doctor has denied and told that it is illegal and it is not possible. From that instance she is behaving strangely and she forcefully made me to pour hot water on my genetic organ and in this instance my genetic organs has burnt little bit. Before that she has damaged my right hand with her bangle which I undergone for 5 stitches and it took more than 2 months to cure. Still my right hand is not in good condition. On 7th of this month i have consumed alprozalam 50 tables and later on i was there in ICU for 3 days and survived. But I am not happy with her. She morning to bed time she use to abuse me that you have illegal contacts and in this instance i am diverting my income to other women. Need suggestion on my case. Thanks. Sai Prasad
Ans: Dear Sai,
It is really unfortunate what you have been going through. What you are facing is abuse at home...
Please don not experiment with destroying your reproductive organs; the damage can be irreversible and worse you will be fighting a long infection caused by injuries.
If your wife suspects you; either she has her reasons OR she just is a person who cannot trust.
1. Firstly, move out of the house for a few weeks at least so that you can heal mentally and physically
2. If you feel that this marriage might work after all this drama, then kindly go for couples therapy and individual therapy as well
3. If you feel that things are over, proceed 'gracefully' through legal means

BUT do not allow this abuse to continue; the reason I suggested that you move out and not ask your wife to move out is, so that she does not turn the situation around and claim cruelty by you.
Take charge of yourself and NOW; your life is important and it counts. So, live and live 'gracefully'...I am sure your loved ones would want that!

All the best!
