Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Heat stroke

1. What happens to the body as a result of exposure to extreme heat?

Exposure to extreme heat results in hyperthermia - elevation of core body temperature above the normal diurnal range of 36 to 37.5�C - due to failure of thermoregulation. Hyperthermia is not synonymous with the more common sign of fever, which is induced by cytokine activation during inflammation, and regulated at the level of the hypothalamus. A temperature above 40�C (or 104�F) is generally considered to be consistent with severe hyperthermia.

The body maintains the temperature by balancing heat dissipation with heat load. The body's heat load results from both metabolic processes and absorption of heat from the environment. As core temperature rises, the preoptic nucleus of the anterior hypothalamus stimulates efferent fibers of the autonomic nervous system to produce sweating and cutaneous vasodilation.

In a hot environment, the body loses heat mainly via evaporation; but this becomes ineffective above a relative humidity of 75%. When environmental temperature exceeds skin temperature, then the other major methods of heat dissipation?radiation (emission of infrared electromagnetic energy), conduction (direct transfer of heat to an adjacent, cooler object), and convection (direct transfer of heat to convective air currents)?cannot efficiently transfer heat.

2. What should I do if I see someone with any of the warning signs of heat stroke?

The management of nonexertional (classic) heat stroke involves ensuring adequate airway protection, breathing, and circulation; rapid cooling and treatment of complications. It is mandatory to continuously monitor core temperature with a rectal or esophageal probe. Once a temperature of 38 to 39�C (100.4 to 102.2�F) has been achieved, then cooling measures should be stopped to reduce the risk of iatrogenic hypothermia.

3. What should I do if I work in a hot environment?

Ensure adequate fluid intake and frequent lemon water sugar salt drinks. All summer natural drinks are okay.

4. What is the best clothing for hot weather or a heat wave?

Wear loose cotton clothes.

5. How can people protect their health when the environmental temperatures are extremely high?
Avoid direct sun exposure
Take plenty of fluids
Use umbrella
6. What steps can be taken to cool the body during heat exhaustion?

Evaporative cooling is the method used most often to treat classic heat stroke and heat exhaustion because it is effective, noninvasive, easily performed, and does not interfere with other aspects of patient care.
With evaporative cooling, the naked patient is sprayed with a mist of lukewarm water while fans are used to blow air over the moist skin.

Other effective cooling methods are less commonly used in patients with classic heat stroke. Immersing the patient in ice water (cold water immersion) is an efficient, noninvasive method of rapid cooling but it complicates monitoring and intravenous access, and may be harmful to the elderly.

An alternative method that allows greater access to the patient is water ice therapy (WIT), in which the patient is placed supine on a porous stretcher positioned on top of a tub of ice water. Medical personnel continuously pour ice water from the bath onto the patient and massage major muscle groups with ice packs to increase skin vasodilation.

Applying ice packs to the axillae, neck and groin (areas adjacent to major blood vessels) is another effective cooling technique, but may be poorly tolerated by the awake patient.

What is the symptoms of swine flu and what are the precautions that one should take to protect him self from swine flu.

BHMS
Homeopath,
What is the symptoms of swine flu and what are the precautions that one should take to protect him self from swine flu.
Symptoms are, fever cough sore throat running nose or stuffy nose bodyache headache chills fatigue red flags to watch out for in those suffering from swine flu. These include: drowsiness breathlessness irritability (especially in children) confusion sudden dizziness precautions: cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze. Use disposable tissues instead of a handkerchief if you have a cold and throw the tissue in dustbin after use. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth too often as this can lead to you contracting the disease. Wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol based hand rub (hand sanitizer). Viruses also spread by droplet infection which might have deposited on common objects like phones, laptops, common desk, and chairs so avoid touching too many objects and wash your hands if you do. Here are ima guidelines to tackle swine flu (h1n1 influenza) in india. Try and avoid close contact especially with people who have flu. Maintain a minimum distance of 6-10 feet to avoid airborne transmission. If someone at home is suffering from swine flu, clean the surfaces frequently to prevent it from spreading. Read to know if swine flu is completely curable. Patients suffering from flu should stay indoors one day post the last episode of fever (without any fever reducing drugs). If someone in your family has swine flu, they should wear a mask, cover their mouth and nose before sneezing, maintain thorough hand hygiene before touching common objects. All these measures will help reduce the spread of disease to others. Here is all that you need to know about the treatments and medications available to fight swine flu. Children less than five years of age and elderly should avoid crowded places. Here are some important tips to save your child from an attack of swine flu. Children should attend school unless a local health authority issues an advisory. High-risk patients should be more vigilant and visit doctors at the earliest. Wear a surgical mask if there is an outbreak of swine flu in your area. In general stay fit, drink lots of water, and eat fruits. Be more vigilant than being scared. Regards.

MBBS
General Physician,
If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ENT problem like DNS polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

What is cardiac arrhythmia?

General Physician,
When our heart pumps blood it beats. The failure of beating and beating at very fast rate is called arrythmia. So it is like heart is not beating adequately to pump blood. It is just vibrating in simple terms.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Masturbation is normal, natural and never unhealthy. Even animals do masturbate. As a human being, you are also an animal. Every animal has sexual instinct because they are designed to reproduce. Human being also has sexual instinct and therefore he needs to satisfy sexual instinct. Therefore, to satisfy sexual instinct, a man or woman, masturbates. In any case, masturbation is never unhealthy or will never affect your physical or sexual health or it cannot affect your future sex life and the ability to have children. Masturbation cannot affect your growth or cause pimples or cause hair fall or cause shrinkage of penis or loss of vital nutrients or cause problems in testis size or colour etc. Masturbation cannot increase your belly fat or cause obesity. You should try to reduce the masturbation frequency to thrice a week and continue masturbation. You can be sure; there are no side effects to masturbation if you are able to restrict it to thrice a week. Jogging and physical exercise are always good to keep you fit and stop worrying about sex and allied thinking. I suggest online sex counseling and therapy. Take care.

I hv pcod problem?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Polycystic ovary syndrome treatment generally focuses on management of your individual main concerns, such as infertility, hirsutism, acneblack or obesity. As a first step, I recommend weight loss through a low-calorie diet combined with moderate exercise activities. Low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets may increase insulin levels, so you may want to consider a low-carbohydrate diet if you have pcos as prescribed by a registered dietitian only. Don't severely restrict carbohydrates; instead, choose complex carbohydrates, which are high in fiber. The more fiber in a food, the more slowly it's digested and the more slowly your blood sugar levels rise. High-fiber carbohydrates include whole-grain breads and cereals, whole-wheat pasta, bulgur wheat, barley, brown rice, and beans. Limit less healthy, simple carbohydrates such as soda, excess fruit juice, cake, candy, ice cream, pies, cookies and doughnuts. Even a modest reduction in your weight for instance, losing 5 percent of your body weight might improve your condition
