It seems like gas but you need to rule out involvement if heart. For this you do consult some physician or give me details of your symptoms. If it’s gas then do this 1. Don't overeat 2. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style. This is most important n non negotiable part 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Curd is good for u. 11. Everyday preferably sleep on same time for more details you can consult me.

My father is 63 years old. He is a diabetic since last 20 years. Currently he is taking Starvog 0.2 Mg (thrice in a day with meal), Glycomet 500 mg (thrice in a day with meal) and absolute DM capsule at night. But his diabetes is fasting 245 and PP 280. Should we change medicine or should we start insulin. We can not afford more than 1000- 1200 Rs per month medicine. So please help over here.

Dear, if your father is willing to take some ayurvedic herbal medicines, he may start this home remedy, along with your current medicines: gurmar churna 50 gms + jamun guthli churna 50 gms + amla churna 50 gms+ neem leaves churna 25 gms + bel churna 25gms. Mix all thoroughly and ask him to take one teaspoon two times a day before meals. He has to follow strict diet along with relaxed mind. May start doing some meditation. Ask him to take frequent but small meals repeatedly every 2 - 2.5 hrly. This will surely help him. Live healthy think healthy

Ear Infections - Common Reasons Behind It!

Ear Infections - Common Reasons Behind It!

Our ears are small in size, but ‘big’ in the work they do. Not only do they help us hear, but also help us maintain our body’s balance. They thus help us stand, walk, drive, you just name it.

Ears are also much bigger in size than they actually are. The part of the ear that we see on our head is only the external ear, there is a middle ear and an inner ear too, silently carrying out complex functions related to hearing and balance. The inner ear is the seat of balance. And this part is hit hard at the time of an ear infection.

Ear infections cause the Eustachian tubes – small tubes that connect the middle ear to the back of your throat – to become swollen and blocked due to excess mucus. As a result of this, fluid builds up and inflammation takes root in the middle ear, thereby causing pain.

Ear infections can be acute or chronic. Acute infections clear up in a few days, but chronic ones reoccur frequently. If not managed, chronic ear infections can cause permanent damage to the middle and inner ear.

Causes of Eustachian tube blockage are as follows:

  1. Allergies
  2. Sinus infection
  3. Cold
  4. Extreme production of mucus
  5. Smoking
  6. Infected adenoid, which is a tissue near your tonsils that traps harmful bacteria and viruses

There are a few risk factors associated with ear infections. It can be said that young children are more susceptible to these infections. This is because their Eustachian tubes are short and narrow. It has also been seen that infants who are bottle-fed have a higher incidence of ear infections than breastfed babies.

Other risk factors are:

  1. Changes in altitude
  2. Changes in climate
  3. Exposure to tobacco smoke
  4. Use of pacifiers

Symptoms of ear infections:

  1. Pain or discomfort inside the ear
  2. A prolonged feeling of pressure inside the ear
  3. Pus-like ear drainage
  4. Hearing loss

What is also important to know is that the symptoms of an ear infection come and go.

Symptoms can also occur in one or both ears. Chronic ear infection symptoms can be less noticeable than those of acute ear infections.

Hence, fever and ear ache should spur you to see a doctor. You should be extremely careful with babies younger than six months who have fever or ear infection symptoms.

Your doctor will diagnose an ear infection by checking if there is a draining of fluid from the middle ear, perforation in the eardrum or a collapsed eardrum.

Sometimes, ear infections can lead to the following serious complications:

  1. Hearing loss
  2. Speech or language delay in children
  3. An infection in a skull bone called mastoiditis
  4. Meningitis
  5. Ruptured ear drum

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 26 years, 50 kgs, 6 feet, during my teen age I started masturbation from 12 years & kept carrying it on 19 years age, in a day I used to do 3 to 4 times masturbation in a day. If I re-calculate it was found more than 2000 times I did masturbate during the said period. I was feeling very happy when I used to do this, but when I came to know its bad effects at 20 years age, I fully stopped it. But now it was very late for me to skip this bad habit. Becoz now I am 26 years in last 5 to 6 yrs. you believe me I didn't masturbate, but I am in a health problem, weight loss, skin problem, very loose skin just like an old man's skin. I was very fatty when I didn't start masturbation, even people used to call me strong person but masturbate killed me. Gradually I am reducing in weight more & more, unable to handle pressure, if it more, members of my family have intact body in comprising of my. Now my friends ask me to maintain my health, you can't believe me I eat more than my family not take spicy & outside food. But loose skin like an old is creating problem & stamina. 1 day my uncle who came out of city said me (abhi se tum itne kamzor ho, agar tumhari shadi karadi jaye to kya hoga). These sentences are terrifying me. Recently I got sperm analysis tested. I found my sperm count is 58 mg something. Other problems I want to share with you. 1) My working strength in compression of others are not good. 2) Skin (jhurriya) loose skin is biggest problem for me 3) Right side Testicle is dangle (zada loose hai) in compression of left side Testicle. Becoz I don't wear underwear, It is becoz of not wearing of underwear or masturbation 4) while sleeping 3 to 4 drops of sperm comes in night without any sexy dream & it happens 2 to 3 times in a week & gradually increasing & this problem is with me after leaving masturbation at the age of 19 yrs. 5) mucus on poop is seen in a week. I went some of the doctors who said they are sexologist shared my problem with them after some medicines & they said masturbation has created bad impact on your liver & intestine. Firstly you should take medicines of liver then go for loose penis problem. Then I started taking medicines but not found good result. I spent my money too. I need your suggestion. Should I go to any Gastrologist firstly related liver problem then go to sexologist. Becoz I too realize that my sex problem can be recovered once my liver, intestine are fully recovered. & main problem which I want to know that power which I lost after more than 2500 masturbation in teen age. Can I get the same power or not becoz at the age of 26 years I look 40 yrs. Becoz my mother say kuch new kapde banao, smart bano, is age pe jaisa aadmi dikhte ho. Really you can't realize the situation which I am facing on daily basis. I am afraid to meet Doctor but I want my proper problem should be windup. please suggest.

Diabetes and Depression - The Vicious Cycle!!

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), Diploma in Diabetes (UK), DFSRH (UK), DRCOG (UK), CCT (UK)
Endocrinologist, Hyderabad
Diabetes and Depression - The Vicious Cycle!!

Diabetes is a state where the body suffers from lack of energy due to poor metabolic state. This is construed as depression in many patients as they already feel lethargic and subdued. The fatigued state of body in diabetes can be alleviated by exercise which raises endorphins - substances which are released in the body especially by exercise - providing us the necessary elation so much necessary for our recovery

Managing diabetes may make a person feel alone and set apart from their friends and family due to the number of dietary restrictions they need to follow. Additionally, if the person has trouble controlling their blood sugar level, it may make him frustrated and anxious. Over time, these negative emotions can build up into depression.

Depression can make a person lose his sense of purpose and can make regular tasks feel like too much to handle. Thus, a depressed person may stop taking care of himself. The lack of energy can lead to a loss of appetite or unhealthy snacking. This can trigger fluctuations in blood sugar levels that worsen diabetes.

Thus, depression and diabetes have a cyclic relationship. The good news is that these two diseases can be treated together and managing one of these diseases can have a positive effect on the other as well.

Here are a few ways to treat diabetes and depression:

Regular Exercise

Regular exercise is very beneficial towards treating, both depression and diabetes. Exercise helps regulate blood sugar levels and hence can help control diabetes. It also helps in reducing excess weight, which can enhance your self image and make you feel happier. Simultaneously, it also releases endorphins or the 'feel good' brain chemical. This can help alleviate depression symptoms.

A Balanced Diet

A balanced diet is essential for good health and can help manage, both these disorders. Along with a balanced diet, there is also a need to abstain from snacking between meals. Reducing the amount of sugar in your meals helps stabilize blood sugar level and control fluctuations. Stable blood sugar level keep a person from becoming increasingly anxious and can thus prevent depression.

Restful Sleep

A good night's sleep can treat, both diabetes and depression. If you have proper sleep, you will awake feeling refreshed and energetic. This positive energy balances the negativity of depression, lowers the urge to snack and helps in stabilizing blood sugar level.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy or in particular cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven beneficial towards treating depression. This in turn gives a person the motivation needed to manage his diabetes as well. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Meri sharir me mass ki chhoti chhoti gathe he unko remove karne ke liye upay bataiye.
Avoid non veg. Have vegetarian diet. Drink hot water. In modern- liposuction can remove it but it reoccur. There is no such med for this. So go for Ayurvedic treatment n follow healthy lifestyle. Kachnar gugulu- 500 mg thrice aday before food for 6 months.
