How can I get rid from yellow fever.
Hi, are you diagnosed with yellow fever or just want yourself to be prevented? because there is preventive vaccine is there, but no cure for this viral infection itself, medical treatment of yellow fever focuses on easing symptoms such as fever, muscle pain, and dehydration. Because of the risk of internal bleeding, avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs if you suspect you have yellow fever. Hospitalization is often needed. In case you are diagnosed with it, you can share your details for symptomatic treatment.

You are controlling your attitude. But it is very difficult to you control long time. In this time expert advise and therapy by the expert is needed to you very much. It is better to avoid friend circle those who have smoke tendencies. Develop busy schedule on that time. Divert the thoughts towards other aspects. Eat some of the small tiffins on that time. Talk with friends in cell. Spend most of the time with your family members. Make a good career plan. Do hard work for your career aspects. Do not waste time to think unnecessary aspects. Attend yoga and meditation classes. Attend personality development classes. If not possible yourself. Better to take the help of psychologist. Psychological counselling is always best. It has no side effects. It improves your life style modification. Ok all the best.

Can diabetic patients eat sweets made with'sugar free or is it just as bad as normal sugar based sweets for them?

Can diabetic patients eat sweets made with'sugar free or is it just as bad as normal sugar based sweets for them?
For any diabetic, having sugar-free foods is the only way to give in to a sweet tooth. With less than 0.5 grams per serving, these treats when had in moderation can satisfy the craving for sweets without sending your blood sugar levels shooting up. Sugar causes a spike in natural insulin levels, a great threat for diabetic patients. These artificial sweeteners are a great alternative, allowing you to enjoy the occasional treat without the drawbacks of usual desserts. They don?t cause a sudden rise in blood sugar levels like authentic sweets and are great for your teeth. Also, a few sugar-free candies can control hunger cravings and you can easily savour the nutritional benefits of chocolates without he added sugar in it. Chocolates are great for your heart and also work as antioxidants, and the sugar-free varieties are ideal for diabetic patients. Substitutes like Splenda, Sugar Free, Equal and Stevia are low in sugar and calories and can be used in place of sugar in all dessert recipes. DISADVANTAGES OF SUSAR FREE FOOD There cannot be advantages without disadvantages, and sugar-free foods are no exception. Most sugar-free foods are free of natural sugar, but that doesn?t mean they are free of calories too. Having too many calories can be dangerous for any diabetic, since their body doesn?t produce normal levels of insulin and desserts that are high in fat content are always a threat. The problem greatly arises because most diabetics assume the desserts and candies to be ?sugar-free? and tend to overindulge. And sometimes these sugar-free foods contribute to hundreds of calories consumed by the diabetic patient, which again sends their blood sugar levels soaring. It is essential to understand that anything processed or artificial cannot be good for you if consumed in large amounts. Having halwas made with sugar-free sweeteners or heavy cakes and pastries that claim to be sugar-free are not a good idea. And then there?s always the fear that some artificial sweeteners have carcinogens in them. Reports suggest that aspartame found in Sugar Free and Equal can give you headaches, cause bloat and even result in seizures. Acesulfame-K that is used in most sugar-free foods can cause cancer as well as tumors. Studies are yet to decide whether the cons of sugar-free foods outweigh the pros. Although most artificial sweeteners like aspartame, Stevia and sucralose have been approved by the FDA for daily consumption, it is best to be cautious. As always, moderation is the key to living a happy life with diabetes.

Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help realxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer.

Help poor people. Daily do exercise about 45 mins. Keep your mobile phone and laptop away when you are alone. Watch good and informative programs in the tv.

Dear lybrate user, kindly note that if you indulge in sexual relation after an interval of minimum 7 days then you are bound to discharge quickly during intercourse but that does not imply that you have any disease. It occurs due to loss of control of the muscles of penis. Normally it is seen that when a person does sexual intercourse daily he gains control over the muscles of penis & can stay longer during sex. You need to take homoeopathic mother tincture salix nigra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water to get rid of premature ejaculation. But before taking any medicine kindly notice whether you are having a second erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation for the first time. If you are not experiencing any erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation then you are surely suffering from erectile dysfunction. There will be a change of medication in this case. To get rid of erectile dysfunction you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture agnus castus q q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with medicines you can also try a home therapy to boost your sexual performance. Soak 4-5 dry dates (khurma khajur) in a cup of lukewarm milk before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning eat those soaked dry dates & discard the milk. Repeat the process daily. This therapy often gives effective result within 15 days there are many conventional allopathic sexual pills in market such as adegra, viagra, penegra etc. Refrain yourself from using such pills as those pills contain a steroid called sildenafil. This steroid has a unique temporary effect on erectile problems. Patients using these pills for first time often report that their penis remain strong even after ejaculation. Such effects leads the patients to use sildenafil for prolonged course of time as they often feel that a full erection is possible only after taking sildenafil. Moreover it is very low cost & easy availability of this steroid has made it quite common as sexual medicine. But the bitter truth is prolonged use of sildenafil will permanently disable the normal physiological process behind erection & will render your body to become solely dependent upon sildenafil for erection. As a result you won't feel any slightest normal erection without taking sildenafil. This is an irreversible condition & it cannot be treated by any means. Once you attain this condition you become a life-time customer of that steroid sildenafil because you have to take sildenafil in order to satisfy your partner. As prevention is always better than cure I would advise you to check the composition of any sexual pills before buying. Discard any sexual pills which contains sildenafil in its composition. If you are suffering from premature ejaculation then along with medicine & home therapy you can try the kegel's exercise. You have to do this exercise once daily during the first time of urination after waking up from sleep at morning. Kindly note the following steps to perform the kegel's exercise:- 1) start urinating until you feel that you have voided almost half amount of urine from bladder. 2) when you feel you have voided almost half of the urine try to stop the flow of urine by squeezing the internal muscles of penis. 3) you should not use your hands to stop the flow. Your hands should be resting on your waist. You have to stop the urine only by your self control over the internal muscles of penis. 4) try to stop the urine flow by the control of internal muscles up to 20 seconds. On the very first day you won't be able to hold the urine for more than 3 seconds. However, practicing the exercise daily will improve your control over the muscles of penis & after 15-20 days you will be able to stop the urine for 20 seconds by the control of your pelvic muscles. This control of pelvic muscles will help you to get rid of premature ejaculation while you are performing sexual intercourse 5) after 20 seconds is over, void the rest of the urine. Do not stop the flow of urine for more than 30 seconds. N. P.- kegel's exercise is effective only in the case of premature ejaculation & it is not helpful for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Asthma can be managed with appropriate and timely therapy in most cases. Since almost 80% of the cases are of allergic origin, it is important to first get your allergy profile done using the allergy skin prick test: environmental panel. Once the source of your allergy is known, preventive measures would play a major part in your asthma management and need for medication is likely to reduce drastically. In some cases, patients could get relief even without medication for a long time, just by avoidance.
