I am suffering with sneezing.

Tags: Digestion

For a long time I have been suffering from everyday sneezing. Maybe its a cold or hot weather. Also whatever I eat it takes time to digest.

The answer

You have not given me much detail about your concerns, so I can only do my best to help. Sneezing is not a serious problem and does not represent serious illness, although I understand it is annoying. Many things can cause sneezing - it is our body’s way of getting rid of irritations in the nasal passages. Think about what could be causing the irritation and remove it e.g. animal fur, smoking or dust. Your BMI is 20, which is within normal range and healthy, so you do not need to worry about your weight. As for your digestion, I would need to know much more information about your complaint to be able to advise you further.
