I am 18 years old. I do not get concentration in my studies. Is that the problem of my adolescent period?

Dear, Welcome to lybrate. Low concentration is hormonal problem upto one extent. You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for "effective learning" techniques or you may consult a psychologist. Take care.

I hate myself. I feel as is life has nothing in store for me. Earlier it was occasional, now it is regular phenomena. I am a diabetic too.Does that have anything to do with that?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Life will not offer anything on a platter for you. You make your life. You cannot do so, if you hate yourself. This is a setup for depression. Instead of being your best friend, you have become your own enemy. When you became a diabetic, and you were extremely disappointed by that, it could be the reason. But in my opinion, it seems more than that. Go out there and face the world, in that manner you will attract positive forces and events into your life. Think positive, you will become positive. Your attitude has to change. Speak to a counselor to identify any past events in your life that may have impacted your mood and attitude. Work on what you discover and big changes may be the order of the day

Homoeopathic treatment is safe and effective way to provide permanent cure in fatty liver grade 2 disease. If you're willing to take a homoeopathic treatment just let me know through private conversation in Lybrate. Fatty Liver Grade 2 Unhealthy lifestyle habits along with poor health maintenance usually give rise to various health problems.  In such a situation it is normally the gastrointestinal tract that gets affected initially, with the liver taking a major brunt of it all.  Fatty liver disease has progressed to be the most common ailment of the liver suffered by most at the present time. Causes – In some, genetics may be the causative factor for this disease condition.  But most often it is either due to abnormal conditions of the body systems like diabetes, high blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels, or excess body weight.  Over use of certain medications are also known to interfere with the proper functions of the liver and cause fatty liver disease to set in.  Heavy alcohol drinking is also linked to this liver condition. Treatment – Effective treatment depends on identifying the exact cause behind this disease development.  Now, fatty liver is classified into two – alcoholic and non-alcoholic type.  Hence, if an individual is diagnosed with the alcoholic type, then refraining from drinking alcohol, even in moderate amounts, will help in reversing this liver disease. For the non-alcoholic fatty liver type sufferers though the treatment involves a change in diet and lifestyle habits. Foods to Be Avoided – Refined carbohydrates like white rice, white bread, noodles, and pasta to be removed from the person’s diet. Processed junk foods contain excess greasy fats and thus needs to be removed.  Breakfast cereals are also processed highly and should be avoided.  Likewise, baked goods like cakes, cookies, scones, puff pastry, etc. Require excess fats for baking purposes and needs to be eliminated by the sufferer. Deep fried sweet and savories also to be avoided by the person.  Meat, especially red meats like lamb, pork and beef, and meat products that contain animal fats needs to be avoided. Dairy rich products like cheese, butter, margarine, mayonnaise, ice-creams and fruit yogurt also to be avoided. Artificial sweeteners to be avoided for breakdown of these additives will exert the liver. Foods to Promote Healthy Liver – Whole grains like brown rice, whole wheat, rye, and oats to be made part of the person’s regular diet.  Organic fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber will benefit a fatty liver sufferer. If meat cannot be avoided, the person will need to switch to fat-trimmed meats and chicken.  Seafood like prawn, mackerel, salmon, sardine, tuna, etc. Which are rich in essential fatty acids may also be consumed by the sufferer. For regular cooking, oils that contain omega-3 fatty acids are recommended for the sufferer.  The best choice would be cold-pressed olive oil. Exercise – Reduction ofugh abdominal fat with exercise is recommended for fatty liver sufferers.  A regular exercise routine will also keep overall body weight at desired levels, which is essential to keep all disease conditions at bay.

As you rightly said your interpersonal skills may be poor because of devoting too much time in your studies. But, it is no big deal. I think you are nearing completion of the studies you are pursuing now. No need to worry about anything except your studies. Concentrae at successful completion of your studies. Social and interpersonal skills can be developed afterwards.

I used to smoke 2 cigarette per day from last 4 years. From last 1 month I quit it. I have join gym but my stamina is nt enough. Even when I run I get tired within 500 mt and feel like vomiting. I want to increase my strength and stamina. As soon as possible. Can you please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It will take some time for stamina and strength to develop. You will need to gradually increase your exercise. When exercising you must preferably choose aerobic exercise and always breathe through your nostrils during exercise. For strength development you will need to do some weight training. If you push yourself too much, you will feel like vomiting. When you wo0rk out you must also do it in a place where the air is clean. Deep breathing techniques may be learne dthrough Yoga too.

Can the Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Rajkot
Can the Immune System Trigger Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease is a neurological problem that is characterised by a cognitive decline and memory loss. It is a type of neurodegenerative dementia. The symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease include not being able to absorb and retain new information, lack of reasoning and judging, not being able to take on complex tasks, impaired visuospatial abilities, problems in reading, writing and speech, among many others. If a person has at least two of these symptoms in a debilitating manner, then the diagnosis can be made in favour of Alzheimer's Disease. The main causes of Alzheimer's are shrinkage of the brain size and death of the brain cells. The immune system is also said to trigger this neurodegenerative disease.

Let us find out what medical science has found so far:

  1. Connections: Many a times, in Alzheimer's disease, the memory and behaviour of the person changes because the brain is unable to make proper neural connections which can lead to memory loss of how a person behaved and the elements that formed the basis of the patient's cognition. Apparently, the immune system behaves in the same way within the brain and blocks the connection. This happens because there is constant communication between the brain and immune system along neurological lines, which is where the disease first emanates.
  2. Inflammation: The brain is prone to inflammation or swelling that is not the normal kind. This inflammation happens as a result of the activation of the infection fighting neurotransmitters and the chemical changes that happen in the brain when an infection strikes. The inflammation usually happens in the plaques or clumps which the brain tries to protect. These clumps are made up of a protein called Amyloid. The immune system is responsible for creating this inflammation in the brain of the patient.
  3. Pattern Recognition Receptors: Many of these receptors work in different manners and cooperate with each other to create a response in the brain. These PRRs can be found in the brain plaques, and they develop the signs of danger which further fuels the inflammation in the brain as a matter of protection.
  4. Activation of Cells Linked with the Immune System: When the PRRs begin to respond, it basically activates the immune system and the cells of the same. This is the basic reaction that causes the changes in brain which then leads to the attachment of the protein to the tissue that is diseased, in which case Alzheimer's Disease starts. The inflammation that we had spoken about earlier basically happens in the nervous tissue.

It is important to recognise and act on the initial signs of Alzheimer's Disease before it progresses beyond one's control.

My father is 49 years old. He is retired air force personal. He always gets angry in high degree on very minute topics. He also has very negative thinking. He always tries to avoid this and to become calm but cannot do that. Please suggest something for him- any cure, therapy, or medicine.

Hi , some people have a tendency to react to minor issues with explosive anger. They often feel guilty after the anger episode is over. This is classified in psychiatry under impulse control disorder and is termed" intermittent explosive disorder. A combination of both, medicines and anger management techniques is used to deal with the same. Consult privately for more help. Take care.

I can't sleep because I still remember her. Even little things somewhere find associations with her. She cheated on me with her boss while I was busy making a life to be together with her. I'm broken completely mentally. I cry almost everyday. I can't get her out of my head. I have tried forgetting her but it just does not happen at all. I left my job in another country to be with her in India. And this is what she did to me. I've abused her after I found out, but even that isn't liberating enough. I'm broken down completely. Help me get out of this. I am only 26 and a huge career ahead of me. I need to take care of my parents too. I can't get her feelings get in my way. I've tried a lot. Help me forget her. Please I beg you.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Love is deeper and more emotional than any other relationship. That is why forgetting is trouble. Recent research shows trying to forget worsens your agony. Therefore don't try to forget. Keep those memories. Let those memories come. Learn to enjoy them. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

**hello lybrate-user, first of all I would like the appreciate your thought that you want to do some thing to avoid laptop and mobile. **thus, what I mean that you have already taken the first step by deciding that you want to do something, so that you can have a balanced life between laptop - mobile one one side and your priorities like studies on the other side. ** atleat the level of awareness that you have will take you long way. ** firstly, you don't have to completely avoid them. But rather divide your time according to your priorities. If your priority is studies then make a timetable as to how and when and how much time will you give to your studies. Then in breaks you can still operate on mobile and laptop. ** try not to completely be off them as then the craving will be more. ** see that you don't starve your self from studies and other activities as well. ** think of physical activities (swimming, racket games, cycling gym etc,) that you can do so that you r fit at the same time. ** if you want, you can learn to play any musicical instrument, as it's a great way to concentrate and focus in your life. ** all the best for your new improvised lifestyle.
