I am 21 from 2 days. I am suffering from cold and sever head ache. What to do? Please help me.
Hi, mostly, you are getting common cold and hence the associated issues like headache. You can try out the following for relief - (a) vitamin c tablets (limcee 500 mg) - 1 tab twice daily before food for 4 days. Then after, take a tsp of good quality chyawanprash once daily for about 2 months. (b) avoid cold drinks/ foods. Oily, greasy, high calorie foods including fast foods be best avoided. (c) take a balanced diet, with leafy greens including cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes etc. Fresh fruits including orange, amla, apples, pineapples, grapes etc help. Take hot carrot and tomato soup daily. (d) avoid exposure to outside cold/ environment including overcrowded places. (e) regularize lifestyle, exercise daily and stay relaxed/ de-stressed. Hope the above-mentioned shall help in both correcting your present health issues and also give long term traction to prevent such issues. All the very best and take care.

Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus

MBBS, MD - Medicine

Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus. I wont write long list of do's and dont's. Its simple things which you can follow in your everyday life.

1. Avoid eating following food items. Potato, rice, corn, corn flakes, market made cereal, muesli (contains added sugar), oily stuff such as parantha, poori & pakode.

2. Take a brisk walk for at least 30 kin per day preferably in morning. Brisk walking means at a pace when you start getting tired and sweaty.

3. Weight reduction is very important. Of you r overweight join some cardio program or swimming or jogging or walking to reduce weight

4. Take small meals frequently. Instead of having large meals at long intervals.

5. Ideally blood sugar should be checked daily but thats not possible in our scenario so once a week or twice a month is f9.

6. Get your eyes checked regularly for signs of diabetic retinopathy. Visit ophthalmologist as soon as you are diagnosed with type diabetes. You will be shocked to know that a large number of diabetics are diagnosed by their ophthalmologists

7. Diabetes have an effect on kidneys and nerves also so get renal function test every 6 monthly or so.

8. Foot care is very imp in diabetes because even a trivial injury in. Leg can become gangrene. Use silicone sole footwear available at medical shops. Never go outside with bare foot.

10. Regular medicine intake is very imp

11. Lastly diabetes is a lifestyle disorder. Sedentary lifestyle makes things worse and result into syndrome x which apart from diabetes also includes increased lipids in blood and hypertension. Adopt an active life style.

Women with PCOS have these characteristics: • High levels of male hormones, also called androgens • An irregular or no menstrual cycle • May or may not have many small cysts in their ovaries. Cysts are fluid filled sacs. PCOS is the most common hormonal reproductive problem in women of childbearing age. How many women have PCOS? An estimated 5 to 10% of women of childbearing age have PCOS. About PCOS Women with PCOS develop several cysts inside 1 or both ovaries. Generally, 15 to 20 follicles begin to mature for ovulation every month. Usually 1 follicle fully matures, and the rest die off. Women with PCOS however never have 1 follicle fully mature. As a result, 15 to 20 follicles stay inside the ovaries and become cysts. These cysts produce high levels of male hormones causing a number of unpleasant symptoms. What causes PCOS? No one exactly knows the cause of PCOS. Evidence suggests there is a genetic link to this disorder. Certain factors appear to play a role in this syndrome. They include: •Low FSH – FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) is a hormone released by the pituitary gland in your brain. It helps the follicles inside your ovaries to mature enabling ovulation. •Excess male hormones – most women with PCOS have high levels of male hormone. This interferes with ovulation and contributes to PCOS •Insulin resistance – many PCOS are insulin resistant. Insulin resistance occurs when your body does not manage insulin properly. Insulin is important for proper ovarian function. Hence insulin resistance can contribute to PCOS. What are the symptoms of PCOS? • Infrequent menstrual periods, no menstrual periods and or irregular bleeding • Infertility or inability to get pregnant because of not ovulating • Increased growth of hair on the face, chest, stomach, back, thumb or toes • Acne, oily skin or dandruff • Weight gain or obesity, usually extra weight around the waist • Male pattern baldness or thinning hair • Skin tags, or tiny excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area. What are the complications of PCOS? • Infertility – because PCOS interferes with ovulation you can have long term fertility problems • Endometrial cancer – PCOS can cause the inner lining of your womb to become thicker, increasing your risk of developing endometrial cancer • Obesity related illness – because PCOS increases your chance of being overweight, it causes weight related health illness such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Getting the symptoms under control at an earlier age may help to reduce this risk. What tests are used to diagnose PCOS? Diagnosis is based on a physical examination and a few clinical tests. Your Gynaecologist will provide a pelvic examination to look for swelling of your ovaries, check your hormone levels and possibly arrange an ultrasound in order to get a detailed picture of your ovaries and the endometrium (inner lining of your womb). What is the difference between PCO and PCOS? The term polycystic ovaries (PCO) describes the appearance of the ovaries seen on ultrasound, but do not have symptoms or hormone findings as described previously. Approximately 20% of women in the general population have ovaries with this appearance. What is not known from the current evidence is whether these women will develop a full blown PCOS in the future. How is Polycystic ovarian syndrome treated? Because there is no cure for PCOS, it needs to be managed to prevent problems. Treatments are based on the symptoms each patient is having and whether she wants to conceive or needs contraception. Common PCOS treatment options include: Weight loss - weight loss will help to regulate insulin levels and help to restore ovulation and menstrual cycles. Birth control pills - pills that contain oestrogen and progesterone will help to regulate the menstrual cycles and decrease the appearance of hair growth and acne. The menstrual cycle will become abnormal again when the pill is stopped. Women may also think of taking a progesterone only pill. This will help to prevent endometrial problems, but not help to reduce acne and hair problems. Diabetes medication - the diabetes medication, metformin, affects the way insulin is processed in the body. It also helps to decrease the testosterone level (male hormone level). This may help to restore ovulation and lessen hair growth. Fertility medications - fertility medication, injections of Gonadotropins (hormone injections) may help to stimulate ovulation and increase your chances of getting pregnant. Medicine for increased hair growth and extra male hormones - if a woman is not trying to get pregnant, medical treatments such as Cyproterone acetate, Spironolactone, Finasteride etc have been shown to reduce male hormone effects on hair growth. All treatments must be continued for 8 to18 months before a response is expected. This is due to the slow rate of hair growth. Other non-medical treatments such as electrolysis or laser hair removal are effective at getting rid of hair. Surgery - ovarian drilling is often an effective procedure that helps to stimulate ovulation. During surgery small holes are made in the ovary which helps to reduce the testosterone level (male hormone level) and an increase in ovulation. Does PCOS change at menopause? Researchers are looking at how male hormone levels change as women with PCOS grow older. They think that as women reach menopause, ovarian function changes and menstrual cycle may become more normal. But, even with falling male hormone levels, excessive hair growth continues, and male pattern baldness or thinning hair gets worse after menopause.

When I want to talk to my mom who lives in london sometimes my voice will not come?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When I want to talk to my mom who lives in london sometimes my        voice will not come?
There is some fear that comes up that is crippling you to kind of loose your voice. Can you identify what that fear is all about? how has your relationship with her been for all of these years? why is she in london? if you have been too close to her and have not broken out of that closeness in a healthy manner, you are likely to have feelings in that separation: it is called separation anxiety. I recommend that you meet with a female counselor and deal with the feelings that are disturbing you. I see this as a purely emotional disturbance and it can be sorted out quite reasonably. If your mom has been a strict person and has curbed any intimacy, there can be this type of reaction too. It can get further complicated if your father has any kind of role to play in all this too. Please explore all of these possibilities with the counselor and regain your confidence in talking to mom: she is after all your own mom and there should be no inhibitions in that relationship ever. She is and was your primary caretaker and that relationship should always be easy and smooth.
