Importance Of Cheese

Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

Effect Of Potatoes Consumption On Pregnancy

Post Graduate Course In Diabetology, MD - Consultant Physician
Internal Medicine Specialist, Indore
Effect Of Potatoes Consumption On Pregnancy

Pre pregnancy potato consumption and risk of gestational diabetes mellitus 

Potatoes are the third most commonly consumed food crop in the world, after rice and wheat.

About 35% of women of reproductive age (that is, aged 19-50) consume potatoes daily, accounting for 8% of daily total energy intake.

The health effects of potatoes are inconclusive, and there have been longstanding debates on the appropriate placement of potatoes in dietary guidance. Nonetheless, the dietary guidelines continue to include potatoes in the vegetable food group and encourage consumption.

Though potatoes are rich in vitamin c, potassium, dietary fiber, and some phytochemicals, unlike other vegetables they can have detrimental effects on glucose metabolism because they contain large amounts of rapidly absorbable starch. Indeed, several epidemiologic studies have linked higher potato consumption to increased concentrations of fasting plasma glucose, insulin resistance, and an increased risk of type ii diabetes mellitus.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (gdm) is a common complication of pregnancy characterized by glucose intolerance with onset or first recognition during pregnancy. Gdm is not only associated with adverse perinatal outcomes, it is also related to increased long-term cardiometabolic risk in both mothers and their offspring.

It is therefore, crucial to identify modifiable risk factors that could contribute to the prevention of GDM.

Previous studies have found that a diet with a higher glycemic index is related to higher plasma glucose and hba1c concentrations during pregnancy and could increase the risk of GDM.

Decoding the Vata, Pitta & Kapha Doshas!

BAMS, MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Navi Mumbai
Decoding the Vata, Pitta & Kapha Doshas!

To say the very least, the age-old body of medicine that is Ayurveda is very different from conventional and contemporary medicine. So, when a person gets to know a little about it, he or she is likely to hear the term ‘dosha’ quite often. Wouldn’t it be interesting to get to know more about what exactly this term means and how important it is?

As per Ayurveda, each person has a unique constitution in terms of the physical and mental constitution. There are generally known to be about two or three forces which come together and determine a person’s constitution. The various forces are in accordance with the elements such as fire, water and earth. So, it could be said that these forces are elemental forces and the constitution of a person depends on the interaction of the elements.

There are three types of dosha, which are Vata dosha, pitta dosha and Kapha dosha. When these doshas are in balance, a person would be in good health and content. When there happens to be an imbalance, it will lead to various conditions which can only be sorted out for the long term if an effort is made to regain balance.

The Vata dosha pertains to controlling the bodily functions. It reflects the elements of space and air. So, when a person has issues with the circulation of blood and breathing, it relates to the Vata dosha. The pitta dosha is responsible for the processes of the body with relation to its metabolism. What this means is that a person’s digestion and absorption, as well as the temperature of the body all, have to do with the pitta dosha. When the pitta dosha is not balanced, what is very likely to happen is that a person would develop ulcers. In addition to this, he or she may become angry without the need of much of a cause to be so. Not good things, are they?


The Kapha dosha is the dosha which is responsible for the growth of the body. So, it is the Kapha dosha that is to blame if the skin is not moisturised to a sufficient level! While it is true that every person is in possession of all three of the doshas, what does happen in most cases is that only two, or sometimes only one, dominate. As a matter of fact, our doshas make us who we are and can determine our preferences and habits. Isn’t that amazing?

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

I took mifepristone and after 24 hours I took two tablets of misoprostol then after another 24 hours I again took 2 misoprostol. I started bleeding heavily and a 2 cm clot type something came out. Have I aborted successfully? I was 4.5 weeks pregnant.

Most likely you have aborted, however you can get confirmation done after 4wks with either a urine. Pregnancy test or an ultrasound.

I missed my periods. Actually the date was 3rd Dec on which I should have periods. After which I took a pregnancy test which was positive. So how will I come to know how many days I am pregnant. And what if I do abortion using the kit at home will it be dangerous?

Hi, Get a pregnancy test done to rule out pregnancy first. If you are not pregnant, other causes of missed or irregular periods include: Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems. Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia. For more information, see the topic Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia Nervosa. Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes. Emotional stress. Illness. Travel. Medicines such as birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods or no periods at all. Hormone problems. This may cause a change in the levels of the hormones that the body needs to support menstruation. Illegal drug use. Problems with the pelvic organs , such as imperforate hymen, polycystic ovary syndrome, or Asherman's syndrome. Breast-feeding. Many women do not resume regular periods until they have completed breast-feeding. Other diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, tuberculosis, liver disease, and diabetes can cause missed or irregular periods, although this is rare. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to Menstrual problem/ irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month.
