Dear, 5 cigerettes per day is nothing. You wil be able to stop it without any problem. Just leave it and pledge never to touch. Show your will power to yourself. You may feel craving problem for three days. In those days use nicotine chewing gum. Then stop that too. Take care.

Addison's Disease - 4 Causes Behind It

Addison's Disease - 4 Causes Behind It

Addison’s disease is a disorder caused due to significant damage in the adrenal cortex (located alongside the adrenal gland’s perimeter that helps mediate stress reaction), which leads to a deficiency in the secretion of the hormones ‘aldosterone’ (that regulates the sodium and potassium level of the body), ‘androgen’ and ‘cortisol’ (which control the body’s reaction in situations of intense pressure) by the adrenal glands.

There are generally two stages of Addison’s disease. The causes vary according to the stages:

In the primary stage of the disorder, the body’s immune system attacks the adrenal cortex and significantly damages it.

Other significant causes are as follows:

  • This might occur as a result of the development of tumors and cancerous cells in the body
  • Resulting from certain infections
  • Long-term usage of glucocorticoids (inflammation reducing steroids) might result in the primary adrenal insufficiency
  • This might also be caused due to tuberculosis or severe bleeding in the adrenal glands.

Risk Factors

If you’re suffering from any one of the following complications, your chances of contracting Addison’s disease increase significantly:

  • Cancer or if you have undergone any surgery to remove parts of the adrenal gland
  • Tuberculosis or diabetes.
  • Frequent usage of coagulants

The treatment of Addison’s disease varies according to the cause of the disorder.
The most common treatments for the disorder include:

  • A prescribed dosage of glucocorticoids might be recommended
  • Replacement of the hormones that the adrenal glands are unable to produce: Cortisone acetate or prednisone might be used in order to replace the ‘cortisol’ hormone.
  • Meditation or other relaxing techniques to ease excessive stress levels or manage any trauma that you have been through.

Sir, I am 46 years old. But I want to be young because if my husband will leave me if I cannot satisfy him So how can I keep myself young for long thanking you.

Hello everyone wants to remain young for ever but ageing can't be postponed or avoided. You can minimize its effects by healthy life style, exercising for 30-40 minutes daily, eat healthy food and keeping sex on the top of priority list. Try and understand what is most arousing for your husband and take care of your own.

I am 17 and I love my ex a lot. He took my virginity and dumped me. This picture of intercourse will remain in my mind forever. How do I get him back? I love him more than my life. And I have no scenes of moving on. I do not wanna either. Is there a right way I can talk to him?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Why would you go after someone who has dumped you will he ever be true to you in future? no. Things that are looking v important for you won't even matter after 1 year let time time pass. Don't be so stubborn and ruin your life by going after a loser. You deserve better you are young many will come in you life to form meaningful relation with you. And you will be able to take mature stands then.

I am abusing Gods since many years. Only recently I came to know, it is because of Obsessive Compulsion Disorder. I am also getting irrational thoughts all the time. It is affecting my studies and thought process. Most of the time, I remain absent-minded and unable to think clearly. Despite using medicines since 8 months, I do not feel much change. Please help.

M.Phil - Psychology, M.A - Clinical Psychology

I suggest that you combine Counselling along with medications. Medications help in reducing the biological component of an illness and Counselling helps us develop awareness and insight about our irrational thoughts. When you will take regular counselling sessions, you will be able to manage them much better as talking about your thoughts helps you relax and you will realize that the situation is not as worst as it looks like. All of us go through these thoughts from time to time. In some cases, the intensity of those thoughts become much more than usual. This is what regular medications and counselling will help in managing. Take care.

Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism?

Speech Therapist, Noida
Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism?

No, there is no connection between vaccines and autism.

Autism is a condition that affects the brain and makes communicating and interacting with other people more difficult. The cause (s) of autism — also known as autism spectrum disorder (asd) or pervasive developmental disorder (pdd) — is unknown. However, genetics, differences in brain anatomy, and toxic substances in the environment are thought to contribute to children developing the condition.

So how did the idea that vaccines play a role get started? Much of the blame lies with a study published in 1998 that suggested that the mmr (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine, or infection with the naturally occurring measles virus itself, might cause autism. Since then, numerous scientific studies have shown that there is no link between vaccines — or any of their ingredients — and autism. And the research used in that study was found to be false, the doctor who wrote it lost his medical license, and the medical journal that published it retracted the paper (this means that they believe it never should have been published).

Even with the overwhelming evidence that vaccines are safe and effective, some parents still decide not to have their children vaccinated or to delay vaccinations. But this is extremely risky because vaccine-preventable diseases like measles are still very much around. So if an unvaccinated child gets one of these preventable diseases, other people around that child could get very sick.

Sometimes, kids can have a reaction to a vaccine like a mild fever or rash. But it's clear that the risk of serious reactions to the mmr and other recommended vaccines is small compared with the health risks associated with the often-serious diseases they prevent.

If you have concerns about any vaccine recommended for your child, talk to your doctor. Ask about the benefits and risks of each vaccine and why they're so important for safeguarding your child's health.
