Taking proteins depend upon your exercise level. Just by taking whey, one does not gain muscles. Also if you are a beginner, you should focus on basics. After one has achieved a basic level of fitness, they should start supplements to reach next level.

How I can stop to grow white hairs in my head. Im just 24 years old nd im facing dis problem last 4 yr.

How I can stop to grow white hairs in my head. Im just 24 years old nd im facing dis problem last 4 yr.
Greying of hair is a normal aging process which starts around 30 years of age. The hairs which have already turned white cannot be turned back to black. But you can delay the process of greying of hair by some lifestyle modifications. Take adequate sleep and drink lots of water, eat lots of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Few multivitamin tablets can also be prescribed for the same. There is also one lotion which is supposed to work. You can contact me with photos for detailed​ prescription.

Effective Tips To Reduce Obesity!

Effective Tips To Reduce Obesity!

Obesity is the condition wherein a person has an excessive body weight as a result of genetic or lifestyle-related factors. This condition if not taken seriously can be life-threatening as obese people are at risk of developing chronic conditions like diabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure, and may also lead to a heart attack. Hence it is crucial to undergo weight reduction.

Calculate the weight you need to lose
Before you begin to practice effective steps for losing weight consider the amount of weight you need to shed. You should first measure your current weight and then calculate your body mass index (BMI) to find the amount of deviation from the recommended range. Then consider the difference between your current and ideal weight as your target weight.

Tips For Losing Weight

1. Eat Right

  • Consult a nutritional expert- It all starts with the right diet. An Individual’s eating habits contribute significantly to his weight. If you are obese or overweight, then you should consult a health expert and have him prepare the appropriate diet based on your weight and body type.
  • Balanced diet- Make sure you have lean meats, fruits, and green leafy vegetables as part of your diet. Also, cut down on the amount of food you consume and your intake of sugar, salt, and fats gradually. Also, water is the best medicine since it flushes all the toxins out of your body. Make it a point to drink around 2 litres of water on a daily basis. It will help clean your system and also keep you feeling full and hydrated.
  • Regular meal time- Another effective tip is to eat regularly. If you skip meals, then your body starts storing excess fat to act as a reserve. If you eat regular meals in small portions, you not only slow down the fat storing process but also reduce the quantity of food you consume.
  • Healthy options- Moreover, switch immediately to the modern-day marvel that is green tea. This seems to be very effective as of late and is helping obese people greatly since it is rich in antioxidants. If you do not prefer green tea, then aloe vera juice is an even better alternative.

2. Exercise
An obese person needs to exercise regularly. If you find it difficult to do exercise, take baby steps. Start with easy sitting and lying exercises. Go out into the open such as a garden and perform these exercises early in the morning for just 10 minutes. As you build your stamina, increase the intensity gradually.

3. Manage stress
Shed some of that stress in your life as stress and weight are directly correlated. Lose out on stress, and you will also lose those extra pounds.

4. Don’t neglect sleep
Six to eight hours of sleep is essential for a healthy being. Insufficient sleep results in increased levels of cortisol. Cortisol is associated with weight gain.Hence, it becomes crucial to rest enough.

Make sure you seek advice from your doctor and implement the necessary lifestyle changes to accomplish weight reduction effectively.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Cranberry Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - करौंदा के फायदे और नुकसान

करौंदा एक ऐसा पौधा है जो सबसे पहले उत्तरी अमेरिका में उगाया गया था. अंग्रेजी में इसे क्रेनबेरी कहते हैं. इसका वैज्ञानिक नाम वैक्सीनियम मैक्रोकार्पोंन है. करौंदा छोटी-छोटी झाड़ियों के रूप में उगने वाला पौधा है. इसमें कांटे भी लगे होते हैं. इसकी फली आकार में बहुत छोटी होती है. जिसका रंग गहरा गुलाबी होता है. करौंदा को यदि कच्चा खाया जाए तो यह काफी खट्टा होता है. लेकिन पकने के बाद इसमें मिठास आ जाती है. करौंदा का इस्तेमाल सॉस, ड्रिंक्स आदि बनाने में किया जाता है. करौंदा में पोषक तत्वों की उच्च मात्रा और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स थी पाया जाता है. इसे अक्सर सुपर फूड के नाम से भी संबोधित किया जाता है. आइए करौंदा के कुछ फायदे और नुकसान को समझते हैं.

1. वजन घटाने में 
करौंदा में पाया जाने वाला फाइबर हमारे हमें लंबे समय तक पेट भरे रहने का एहसास कराता है. जिसकी वजह से भूख जल्दी-जल्दी नहीं लगती. इसके अलावा इसमें पाया जाने वाला रस हमारे शरीर में जमा होने वाले वसा को भी खत्म करके हमारे वजन और मोटापा घटाने का काम करता है.
2. प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र को मजबूत करने में
करौंदा का इस्तेमाल हम अपने शरीर की प्रतिरोधक क्षमता को बढ़ाने के लिए भी कर सकते हैं. क्योंकि करौंदा में एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स और फाइटोकेमिकल्स प्रचुर मात्रा में पाए जाते हैं. इसलिए करौंदा हमारे प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र को मजबूत करके हमें बिमारियों से दूर रखने का काम करंता है.
3. दांतों को स्वस्थ रखने के लिए
करौंदा हमारे दांतो को भी स्वस्थ रखने में काफी उपयोगी है. कई शोधों में यह पाया गया है कि करौंदा में पाए जाने वाले तमाम लाभदायक तत्वों में से एक प्रोएंथोसायनिडीन जीवाणुओं को दांतो से दूर रखने में मददगार है. इसके अलावा यह हमारे मसूड़ों को भी कई रोगों से बचाने का काम करता है.
4. त्वचा की बेहतरी के लिए
करौंदा हमारे शरीर को कई रोगों से तो बचाता ही है. इसके अलावा ये हमारे त्वचा को भी कोमल और बेहतर बनाने में लाभदायक होता है. यदि आप ड्राई करौंदा एक चौथाई इसके तेल के साथ मिक्स करके इस्तेमाल करें तो बेहतर परिणाम मिलते हैं. इस पेस्ट को 10 मिनट के लिए त्वचा पर लगाकर इसे अच्छे से धो लें ऐसा करने से त्वचा कोमल बनती है.
5. मस्तिष्क के लिए
करौंदा की फली हमारे मस्तिष्क के लिए भी काफी उपयोगी तत्व मानी जाती है. इसमें पाया जाने वाला एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स सूजन को तो कम करता ही है. हमारे स्मृति और समन्वय की क्षमता में भी सुधार लाता है. यानी इसका इस्तेमाल हम अपनी यादाश्त को बढ़ाने के लिए भी कर सकते हैं.
6. कैंसर के उपचार में
करौंदा का इस्तेमाल हम कैंसर के उपचार में भी करते हैं. विशेष रुप से प्रोस्टेट कैंसर, लीवर कैंसर, स्तन कैंसर और ओवेरियन कैंसर में इसके इस्तेमाल का प्रभाव काफी सकारात्मक देखा गया है. करौंदा ट्यूमर के बढ़ने की प्रक्रिया को भी धीमा करने का काम करता है.
7. पेशाब इन्फेक्शन को दूर करने के लिए
करौंदा का इस्तेमाल मूत्रमार्ग की दीवारों से बैक्टीरिया को कम करने में भी किया जा सकता है. इसका कारण करौंदा में पाया जाने वाला प्रोएथोकेनिडिन नामक तत्व है. इसके आलावा करौंदा के सेवन से मूत्र में होने वाले संक्रमण को दूर कर सकते हैं.
8. दिल को स्वस्थ रखने में
दिल को स्वस्थ रखने में भी करौंदा का इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है. दरअसल करौंदा का रस एचडीएल कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को बढ़ाने का काम करता है. जिसे कि अच्छा कोलेस्ट्रॉल भी कहा जाता है. इसके अलावा करौंदा में पॉलीफेनाल्स भी पाया जाता है. जोकि रक्तचाप को कम करने में महत्वपूर्ण होता है.

करौंदा के नुकसान

  • गर्भवती महिलाएं और स्तनपान कराने वाली माताएं इसके इस्तेमाल से बचें.
  • जिन लोगों को एस्पिरिन से एलर्जी है उन्हें भी इसके इस्तेमाल से बचना चाहिए.

Diabetes and Depression: Coping With The Two Conditions

MBBS
Diabetologist, Jabalpur
Diabetes and Depression: Coping With The Two Conditions

According to most experts, depression and diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels

Sudden Death Due to Heart Problem

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Gurgaon
Sudden Death Due to Heart Problem

When the normal functioning of the heart shuts down suddenly due to heart disease or any other cardiovascular condition, then this is known as sudden death due to a heart problem. Every year, there are over 100,000 deaths globally due to this reason, as per various medical studies. Sudden Cardiac Arrest or SCD is a cause of death for many adults who may or may not be suffering from chronic heart disease. Let us find out more about this condition.

- Difference between SCD and Heart Attack: A myocardial infraction or heart attack can happen when there is a blockage in one of the arteries of the heart which prevents the passage of blood and oxygen to the heart's varied chambers. When the oxygen present in the blood does not reach the heart in adequate amounts and on time, it can lead to a heart attack. In the case of SCD or sudden cardiac arrest, the problem happens due to a shutdown of the heart after a malfunction in the electrical systems which can lead to varied irregularities. 

Accelerated heartbeats, fluttering and quivering of the ventricles which is also known as ventricular fibrillation, as well as other similar causes can ensure that the blood does not reach the heart on time, which can lead to sudden death. The patient usually loses consciousness within the very first few minutes as the blood does not reach the brain.

- Symptoms: There are a number of symptoms that are associated with this phenomenon. While losing consciousness is one of the first signs, others include a racing heartbeat as well as heart rhythm problems and dizzy spells. The symptoms usually take place suddenly without prior warning and lead to a complete shutdown of the heart and its functions.

- Causes: The main cause of SCD is a condition known as arrhythmias which is basically characterised by abnormal heart rhythms and vertical fibrillation which leads to disorganised impulses to be released from the ventricles due to which the heart cannot pump blood properly. It can lead to death within a matter of minutes if it remains untreated.

- Revival: On an emergency basis, the patient will have to be given CPR by an expert at the emergency unit of the hospital. This is a manual process of retrieving the patient by pumping the chest and breathing into the patient's mouth. Portable defibrillators can also be used to revive the patient in such cases.

- Risk Factors: Patients who have suffered heart attacks in the past and have a family history of heart disease and heart attacks, are at maximum risk when it comes to SCD. Also, factors like obesity and diabetes can increase the risk.

Urinary Tract Infection

OVERVIEW

Urinary Tract Infections are common infections, affect men and women of all ages, and vary dramatically in their presentation and sequelae.

Urinary Tract Infections are a common cause of morbidity and can lead to significant mortality.

WHAT IS AN UTI?

A UTI is an infection involving any part of the Urinary Tract such as the Urethra, Urinary Bladder and the Kidneys.

UTI is an inflammatory response of the urothelium (lining of the urinary tract) to bacterial invasion.

INCIDENCE AND EPIDEMIOLOGY

Women are most at risk for a UTI. Nearly half of all women (50%) will experience a UTI during their lifetime.

WHY?

Women have a short urethra which makes it easier for the bacteria to enter the bladder and cause infections. Also the urethra is in close proximity to the anal canal, which is the source of these organisms.

What causes the UTI`s?

The most common causative organisms of UTI`s are bacteria from the bowel such as E.coli, proteus, pseudomonas etc.

Once the bacteria enter the urethra, they travel upwards causing infection in the bladder and sometimes other parts of the urinary tract.

Sexual intercourse is commonly associated with UTI`s in women. During intercourse, the bacteria in the vaginal area are sometimes transferred into the urethra by the motion of the penis.

Using spermicides or a diaphragm also can cause more frequent UTI`S , due to increased binding of the organisms to the lining of the urethra.

Menopause also increases the risk of getting a UTI. During menopause, the level of estrogen decreases which causes changes in the periurethral tissues that can lead to a UTI.

In men, urethritis is usually the result of bacteria acquired during sexual contact.

SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS OF A UTI

  1. A strong persistent urge to urinate.
  2. A burning sensation during or after urination.
  3. Passing frequent, small amounts of urine.
  4. Blood in the urine (Hematuria) / Cloudy Urine / Foul smelling urine.
  5. Pain in the lower abdomen and the pelvis.
  6. Penile discharge in men.
  7. Pain in the flank region/ back, fever , nausea and vomiting, fatigue  (Infection of the kidneys)

HOW ARE UTI`S DIAGNOSED?

The Urologist will take a proper history and examine the patient and order some basic investigations like Urine Analysis and Urine Culture and sensitivity. UTI`S in males require more detailed investigations like the Ultrasound of the Abdomen to elucidate the cause of UTI.

TREATMENT

Based on the severity of the symptoms, the urologist may prescribe antibiotics empirically based on the common sensitivity patterns. The antibiotic may be changed based on the Urine C/S report , which usually takes around 48 hours time. You may also be prescribed a medicine that will relax the bladder while the antibiotic starts to work.

Patients must make sure they take the complete course of treatment as directed and to return back if the symptoms are not relieved.

Patients are also advised to drink plenty of oral fluids, which help in flushing out the bacteria from the urinary tract. Patients are also asked to avoid coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks containing caffeine until the infection is cleared because these can irritate the bladder and cause worsening of symptoms.

Kidney Infections (Pyelonephritis) usually require hospitalization and more intensive management.

PREVENTION OF UTI`S

  1. Drink plenty of oral fluids to flush out the bacteria
  2. Do NOT hold the urine for long periods of time. Urinate when you feel
  3. Wipe from front to back after a bowel movement.
  4. Urinate before and after sexual contact emptying the bladder completely each time.
  5. Avoid using spermicides/ diaphragms , in case of recurrent UTI`s
  6. Avoid use of feminine “hygeiene” products like douches and sprays, which could upset the delicate bacterial balance of the genital region.
