I have lost some information from my profile page. Can i restore it?
There is no versioning for what you yourself write on your profile page, so information that has been removed is gone. If the information missing was on your page for an extended period of time there is a possibility that Google, or some other cache-service, has it saved. Try searching for your name and see if the old information is present.
