Patient discussion about walk

Q. I have diabetics.My doctor suggested me to walk daily.Would you rather be alone or walk with someone? Why? I have diabetics. My doctor suggested that exercise will help me to improve my health. So I planned and started going for a morning walk daily. I feel very fresh and youth few days after my walking. It’s really effective. I also recommend this exercise to those who have not used to go for the morning walk. Now this question is for the one who is already doing it. When you go for a walk, would you rather be alone or walk with someone? Why?

A. If I am troubled, then I want to walk alone. If I am walking for exercise, then I would want to walk with someone so that we won’t feel the hours we spend. I usually discuss encouraging experiences with the one who walk with me. Sometimes I like to walk with my dog.

Q. what is hernia.what is the cure.is it fatal.what precautions should i take.can i do brisk walking

A. Hernia is a condition in which contents of the abdomen (usually part of the gut) protrude outside, either to the cord that lead the vessels to the testicle or through other parts of the wall of the abdomen. It's usually treated with surgery that usually solves the problem.

After a resting period after the surgery usually full and regular activity can be resumed.
