Hi doctor,

I have tested my blood. It showed iron and vitamin D level as very low and hs-CRP is three times higher than the reference range. I am feeling some niggle or continuous pain in the right-hand side waist for the last eight months, exactly in the area where the belt is getting tightened. I took Citralka.



Welcome to

  • Vitamin D deficiency can cause bone weakness and that can lead to waist pain. With Vitamin D supplementation, it shall become alright.
  • But, I need to go through the reports before suggesting any medications. Hence, kindly upload the reports.

Thank you doctor,

I was having stomach pain and indigestion recently. Also, I have issues of constipation for a long term. Please check my reports.

  • Vitamin D is very low and requires supplementation. I suggest you tablet D Rise 60k weekly once for three months. Also, increase your exposure to bright sunlight.
  • Your iron levels are also low, but do not require iron tablets. Just eat more of iron rich food that is fish, dates, millets, green leafy vegetables, beetroot, pomegranate, etc.
  • Hs-CRP (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein) is very much elevated, but that does not require any treatment. It indicates that there is a high risk of cardiac problems in future.
  • So, to avoid this you need to avoid smoking and alcohol, if you have these habits. Do exercise daily and eat low cholesterol diet.
  • Your LDL cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) is slightly high, but no need of medication.
  • If pain is bothering, then I suggest you tablet Zerodol-P (Aceclofenac and Paracetamol) or else not needed.
