Received nice advice.
Good morning! I am Dr. Indu Taneja working as Head of the Department of Gynae and Obstetrics in Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad.
Today I will be talking about PCOS commonly known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This disease affects all age group women and mainly the young girls. Then it can affect the females of childbearing age and those of after the childbearing age also. The commonly affected females are the young girls.
This is caused mainly because of hormonal imbalance. This hormonal imbalance leads to the symptoms which are mainly irregular periods. Mostly, patient have delayed periods such that even women may not have periods for long months altogether. Then there is excessive weight gain. It can also lead to excessive abnormal hair growth on face and the chin and acne. On the top of it , there is hair loss from the scalp also. So this is all because of the hormonal imbalance. This hormonal imbalance later on can lead to infertility.
So the treatment is basically the change in lifestyle. This disease is mainly because lifestyle is changing nowadays. There is more of sitting work. The girls are not doing any extra activity. Most of the times, they are sitting and not doing any kind of exercise or exertion. They are just working on the laptop or maybe just studying and eating a lot of junk food or consuming a lot of cold drinks. This leads to excessive weight gain. This weight gain in turn leads to hormonal imbalance. So it becomes a vicious cycle.
The first and foremost important treatment in this becomes the change in lifestyle. Start doing any kind of exercise. Any kind of workout for at least 25 to 30 minutes. Cut short on junk food. No cold drinks, no aerated drinks. No dabba band things to be eaten. Exercise is the foremost important thing. Once they start reducing weight, automatically the hormonal imbalance changes and then they start responding. And after the lifestyle change, there is the symptomatic treatment. Treatment is to be given for irregular periods- maybe hormonal pills. Then if there is insulin imbalance then the patient can be given symptomatic treatment for that also. For excessive hair growth also. But to reduce this, to come back this, the most important is the change in lifestyle. I think for the young girls, the take-home message is that they should do some kind of exercise.
Thanks doctor for your precaution. Actually what happened is may be my wife got conceived and didn't get the period of this month. We are not planning for baby so she took tablet for getting period for 2 days continuously but she is having period pains but not the actual release .she is suffering from fever ,headache ,body pain Now how to confirm that she is pregnant? And this is the reason why she missed her period this month.
My wife is 31 years old and about 45 days back, she was diagnosed with DVT. She was taking Ixarola 20 mg since then. Last week we realized she was pregnant as well with child age 7-8 weeks. As per doctor conception happened just before DVT diagnosis. We have stopped taking Ixarola 20 mg now and have moved to Clexane injections. We are not sure now what to do, as for one month she has been taking the medicine and did that medicine have impacted the child in any way. Should we continue with pregnancy? Also as per doctor DVT chances increases with pregnancy and she will have to be on clexane injections twice daily till delivery. Please suggest. Thanks in advance.
Is it common to have sex feeling when pregnant .I am feeling to have intimate touching my clitoris every time is it fine to have this feeling or it is consider as disorder.
I am 35 weeks pregnant and my recent LFT blood test shows Alkaline Phosphate as 151.6 u/l, whereas, my SGOT and SGPT are normal. My Gynae told me to start medicine (Udiliv 300) twice a day. Is it advisable, I need a second opinion?
I have white discharge problem for 8 years. I tried so many natural treatments and consulted so many doctors. Even scan report and blood test became normal but it still continuing. There is no use of normal treatments and tablets. What is the solution for this problem?
For most people, the screen of a cell phone is the first thing they see in the morning and the last thing they see before going to bed. Nobody can deny the fact that living without a cell phone today is extremely difficult but must we be so glued to them? Staring into a phone or tablet screen, before going to sleep affects your sleep as well as impacts your health. Here's how:
- It is harder to fall asleep - We feel sleepy when the brain releases a hormone called melatonin. This release is determined by the body's circadian rhythm which is controlled by light exposure. The blue light of a cell phone screen interferes with this rhythm and tells the brain not to secrete melatonin. This makes it harder to fall asleep even after you have switched off your phone.
- It hampers the quality of your sleep - A direct effect of sleeping late is a reduced amount of sleep. On top, that, using a cell phone before going to bed also hampers the quality of your sleep. When an office email or a text message is the last thing you see before going to sleep, your brain cannot completely shut off. This makes you tense even in your sleep.
- It lowers your attention span - When you wake up from a restless night's sleep, your productivity suffers. Not getting enough sleep is known to hamper your decision-making skills, impairs both long term and short term memory and make you distracted. This leads to unnecessary stress and anxiety.
- It increases the risk of weight gain - The body is more likely to feel hungry when you don't have enough sleep. This is because sleep-deprived people have a lower metabolism. Thus using a cell phone before sleeping also increases your chances of snacking on something unhealthy to get through the day and in turn you put on weight.
- It weakens your immune system - The body's immune system produces antibodies that fight infections while we are asleep. Depriving the body of the sleep it needs weakens the immune system by not giving it enough time to build its forces. Not only does this increase the risk of falling ill it also slows down recovery from illnesses.
- It damages your skin - Sleeping late at night and not getting enough sleep can cause dark circles, puffy eyes and fine lines across the face. The blue light of a cell phone screen also tells the body to secrete cortisol which makes the skin less elastic and smooth.
Thus, even if you look at a phone screen for just five minutes every night before going to bed, the side effects last much longer and affect your mental and physical health as well as your looks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
