I am 20 years old female. I have dark spots around my mouth from almost 2-3 years. I had used many home remedies or even creams but still these spot haven't gone.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion IRON rich diet like Green vegetables,Fruits and 2 glass milk daily PAPAYA PACK ( BAKSON) Daily apply on face directly in evening when u think u r not going outsside now nd wash face after it is dry. Lemon Juice A quick and easy solution is lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark pigmentation spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. 1. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 2. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 3. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above. 2. Buttermilk Buttermilk is also beneficial in getting rid of dark spots. Like lemon juice, it also helps fade blemishes and black spots but without causing burning sensation. 1. Take four teaspoons of buttermilk. 2. Add two teaspoons of fresh tomato juice. 3. Mix the two ingredients (both have excellent bleaching properties) and then apply. 4. Wash it off after 15 minutes. The lactic acid in milk too, will gradually reduce skin pigmentation, and brighten and tone your overall skin complexion. So, if you do not have buttermilk, simply apply soak a cotton ball in milk and dab it directly on your spots. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash it off Put milk on a cotton ball and dab it directly on your spots. Repeat this procedure twice daily for four to five weeks. You can also prepare a solution by mixing milk and honey and apply the solution to your dark spots, leaving it on for 10 minutes.

My father has just gone under Lipid profile test where his Triglycerides level examined as 611, I know it is very high but please advise is it serious or not and how to lower it down?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
Hi lybrate-user High levels of cholesterol are related to the intake of processed foods, sedentary lifestyle, nutrient deficiencies and stress. Many people think that cholesterol diet is directly responsible for cholesterol in the blood. So, all they have to do is to cut out high – cholesterol foods and their blood cholesterol will become normal. This is a misconception. Merely cutting down on the cholesterol diet will have a very little, almost an insignificant effect on blood cholesterol. It is important to know how to reduce and control cholesterol by relying on a good diet. When the body is fed with high cholesterol foods like eggs, red meat, high-fat dairy products, the excess cholesterol is metabolised and excreted leaving blood levels unchanged. Furthermore, the liver compensates for the excess intake of cholesterol by reducing its production so that the blood levels of cholesterol do not rise. All this happens if the person is leading a healthy lifestyle, consuming a lot of antioxidants in the form of fruits and vegetables; eating whole food in the form of whole grain cereals, whole grain pulses & avoiding processed & refined foods in addition to exercising. All these factors protect from the mishandling of dietary cholesterol. On the other hand if you are living a life of stress and eating the regular fast-food fare as well as a diet rich in cholesterol namely eggs, red meat and saturated fat in animal foods, then your body will metabolise the cholesterol diet differently. The liver then does not act as a safeguard; instead it allows the excess cholesterol diet to enter the blood stream and subsequently stores it in the blood vessels and coronary arteries. Such people get affected by cholesterol rich foods and benefit from knowing how to reduce their dietary cholesterol intake. This only justifies the phrase one man’s food is another man’s poison. Whatever be the reason of raising blood cholesterol, the answer is quite simple. When you increase your intake of soluble fibre, it helps bring down the blood cholesterol dramatically. The point to note here is that fibre occurs exclusively in plant food. Animal foods like chicken, fish, meat, beef, cheese, eggs, milk have little or no fibre to boast of. Fresh, raw fruits and vegetables especially the way we do it in Indian cooking (soggy and overcooked) destroy much fibre. Juices have little or no fibre. Similarly unrefined grains products like dhalia (broken wheat), whole wheat flour, wheat puffs, Brown Rice, Jowar & Bajra flour, whole dals like channa, rajhma, chowli, beans, black dal etc. High in fibre. Control cholesterol with breads and biscuits that high in fibre will list ‘whole wheat flour’ and not just wheat flour, as their chief ingredient on the label. Wheat bran is one of the highest fibre foods known because its fibre content is about 50%. There is no doubt that a diet rich in soluble fibre can lower blood cholesterol, blood pressure & prevent strokes as well as heart attacks. Soluble fibre is found in oat bran, fruits and vegetables. It has a powerful impact on the body’s metabolism of sugar and fats. So, how much fibre should you eat? It has been seen that in most Asian countries incidence of heart disease and diabetes is low. How to reduce cholesterol is a general question that everyone asks. People in these countries consume anywhere between 40-60gms of fibre per day. But an intake of 40-45gms of fibre is recommended to prevent heart disease. In the metros; however, the diet pattern is similar to the western countries; hence, the incidence of heart disease is more in the metros. To increase the fibre content of your diet and thereby reduce or control cholesterol levels all you have to do is: Switch to this Instead of this Unpeeled fruits and vegetable Whole wheat bread (please note whole wheat bread is not the same as brown bread). Fresh fruits Brown Rice or Wild Rice Oat Bran Whole grain dals like channa & rajhma, black dal chowli, green mung. Whole wheat bread. Popped corn and puffed wheat Snack on high fibre biscuits like those made from millets or bran or soya bean or whole wheat flour. Peeled fruits and vegetables White bread Fruit juices Polished white rice Instant Oatmeal Animal protein White flour (maida) Potato chips & fried sev Maida biscuits, where the label reads as ‘wheat flour’ as their main ingredients.

When it comes to weight/ fat loss it's all about being sensible with food. Be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets or pills will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. It's all about a balance of diet and exercise.

Blood Clots in the Legs: Are They Preventable?

Blood Clots in the Legs: Are They Preventable?

A blood clot in the leg is termed as Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT. This blood clot can be fatal, because it usually blocks the passage of blood to the heart by damaging the one way valves of the veins. This can also reach other organs like the lungs, in which situation the case becomes complicated and may also lead to death. There are various ways of preventing the onset of these clots. Follow these points to know more.

  1. Blood Thinners: Prolonged hospital stay and a major surgery like joint replacement can lead to blood clots in the legs or DVT. Therefore, it is imperative to ask your doctor about a prescription for blood thinners, which can help in better blood flow despite minimal motion in the legs or stiffness. 
  2. Compressions Stockings: If you have been in the hospital for a prolonged period or suffering from leg paralysis, then the risk of blood clots is greater than most others. You can make use of compression stockings, which will help in preventing clots by holding the area tight so that the blood is forced to pump and flow. These should be used every time you are admitted to the hospital. 
  3. Exercise: It is important to keep moving in case you are travelling in a long flight that is over four hours long. Also, you can try certain mild exercises, in case you have a long standing condition of pain or cramping in the leg muscles and joints. From simple toe flexes to muscle strengthening exercises like the heel or towel hook, you can ensure that the tightening action makes your muscle firm so that the blood clots do not have a chance to form. You may also need to lose weight in case you are overweight so that you can alleviate the risk of these clots.
  4. Water: Staying hydrated is something that we all need to follow in any case, but it is especially important if you are risk of developing blood clots in the legs. Drinking plenty of fluids is a natural way of thinning the blood, especially if you have been in bed or travelling for prolonged periods. 
  5. Loose Fitting Clothing: You may want to wear loose fitting clothing when you are travelling or in the hospital so that you do not end up unnecessarily compressing an area in a way that will be detrimental for the blood flow there. Wearing loose clothing ensures that the blood flow carries on as per its normal routine without any blockages.

It is important to remember the above points so that you keep blood clots in the legs at bay.

Foggy and Cloudy Vision - A Sign Of Cataract?

Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Foggy and Cloudy Vision - A Sign Of Cataract?

Cataract is clouding of clear natural lens present inside the eye, this is a major cause of decreased vision in elderly. Cataracts can occur in one or both eyes, usually developing very slowly. Things look blurry, hazy, less colourful and less sharp with cataract.

Most cataracts are related to ageing, however many other factors can either increase the rate of formation or cause cataract formation. 

Causes of Cataract Formation-

  1. Ageing: Most common cause. As the proteins present in the lens of the eye degenerates over the years ( just like any other organ) cataract is formed. If you are having Diabetes or hypertension, the rate of formation gets accelerated.

  2. Radiation: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, especially UV-B rays, results in cataract in your eyes. Wearing sunglasses in the daytime helps in slowing down the process of cataract.

  3. Genes: Many genetic disorders can result in congenital cataract ( cataracts present since birth) or early formation. Like in Lowe syndrome or Down's syndrome. 

  4. Lifestyle Choices: Cigarette smoking, long hours of sun exposure regularly, antioxidant, poor diet etc. are responsible for the onset of cataract.

How To Detect Cataract?

Certain signs and symptoms suggest the existence of cataract in the eye. Depending on the type and level of cataract, problems in vision occurs. The main symptom is foggy cloudy vision as if seeing through a dirty glass window. 

Other Symptoms are- 

  1. inability to see clearly in bright light (during the day) which becomes better in dim light ( evening and night) and vice versa. 
  2. watery, tired eyes - mild pain in and around eyes. 
  3. yellow tinge in vision
  4. Halos around light bulbs or bright light. 

If you are experiencing above symptoms and having problems in viewing things clearly, consult an ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked.
