Dear Lybrateuser, - Do follow the advise of your cardiologist as he is the best person to diagnose & treat your problem after knowing the overall picture - you have to be monitored regularly for your cardiac status if you have to survive on medication & surgery is not advisable - lead a heart healthy lifestyle which includes a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, do regular exercise for 30-40 min including light yoga & meditation for 10-15 min daily in the morning - have a restful sleep for 7-8 hrs at night as its the best stress buster for the body - take your medication on time, get regular checkups & follow your doctors advise.

Good Afternoon ~ It seems likely you have had HIGH RISK sexual activity and it has resulted in some sort of genital infection which is temporary. I believe there are multiple strains of the HSV virus and most labs test for some but not others. So it is likely that you have an infection that will go away. However, I strongly recommend that you avoid such HIGH RISK sexual activity. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Hi lybrate-user. First of all it is not possible to diagnose without any blood reports. And it is advisable to do the blood test first. Don't take blind treatment. Second Don't take any blind treatment without consultation. Pediatric cases get worse very fast. So better take proper treatment.

The Efficacy of Hormone Therapy in Early Menopause

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
The Efficacy of Hormone Therapy in Early Menopause

The menopause can take three very different routes for women. There are those who sail through it with very few symptoms or problems and don't even notice that their ovaries have stopped producing the hormone. Then there are those for whom it is a matter of a few hot flushes and a couple of night sweats, doesn't last long and not really a bother. This usually marks a relief from the periods. But for some it is abject misery accompanied with crippling fatigue, absolute exhaustion, hot flushes, vaginal drying, mood swings along with low desire or lack of sexual feelings. These symptoms might persist for more than 7 years.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is considered to be an effective treatment for menopausal symptoms. The other problems linked with menopause can also be influenced by HRT in a positive manner.

HRT is indicated in:

  1. Treatment of symptoms of menopause and the risk benefit ratio is apt for the women and they have been informed about the same
  2. For women who are around 51 years and are reaching menopause even though they are asymptomatic
  3. In women who are at the risk of osteoporotic fractures and are under 60 years and the non-estrogen treatments cannot be given
  4. HRT is not recommended in women who are above 60 years

Benefits of HRT:
The benefits of HRT usually are more than the risk if done in a woman who is under 60 years of age. 
These include:

  1. Improvement in quality of life by relieving muscle pains and improving sleep
  2. The mood swings are controlled and low moods are usually alleviated by HRT. Low moods usually arise due to menopause.
  3. It reduces the vasomotor symptoms, usually within four months of the treatment with maximum benefit in three months
  4. HRT improves the urogenital symptoms by lowering the vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy, urinary frequency and symptoms. 
  5. HRT reduces the risk of osteoporosis. HRT is believed to preserve the bone mass density of the skeletal sites thus reducing the chances of vertebral and nonvertebral fractures.
  6. HRT also reduces the risk of colorectal cancer and cardiovascular diseases

Risks of HRT:
The main risks of HRT are stroke, endometrial and breast cancer, thromboembolic disease, pulmonary embolism and gallbladder disease. Though other risks are:

  1. It increases the risk of ischemic stroke
  2. There is a small risk associated with breast cancer and the risk increases more, if the woman is underweight or overweight, alcohol user, smoker and stops HRT suddenly
  3. Estrogen only HRTs can increase the risk of endometrial cancer. If cyclical progestogen is used for 10 days for 28 cycles then the risk is eliminated.

I am 26 years old. I have dark patches on the part of thighs near the scrotum. Also, the joints seem to be wet all the time.

This increased moisture is due to impaired immunity. We need ayurvedic tablets to strengthen your immunity so that dark patches will fade away and joints will not be wet. Just let me know your height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

HIV is transmitted through contact with the following bodily fluids: blood breast milk semen vaginal fluid How is HIV prevented? HIV is an especially dangerous virus because it doesn’t cause a lot of outward or noticeable symptoms until the disease has progressed. For this reason, it’s important to understand how HIV is transmitted and ways you can work to prevent transmission. HIV can be transmitted by: having sex, including oral, vaginal, and anal sex sharing needles, including tattoo needles, needles used for body piercing, and needles used for injecting drugs coming in contact with body fluids, such as blood, semen, vaginal fluid, and breast milk HIV is not transmitted by: breathing the same air as an infected person getting bitten by a mosquito or other biting insect hugging, holding hands with, kissing, or touching an infected person touching a door handle or toilet seat an infected person has used Keeping this in mind, some of the ways you can prevent HIV include: refraining from oral, anal, or vaginal sex (known as the abstinence method) always using a latex barrier, such as a condom, when you have oral, anal, or vaginal sex never sharing needles with others If you’ve had unprotected sex or shared needles with anyone in the past, doctors usually recommend getting an HIV test at least once a year. Symptoms can take years to appear, which is why it’s so important to get tested regularly. There is no cured but with right kind of treatment person can live healthy full life.

Too Much Salt In Diet - How It Can Damage Your Body?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Too Much Salt In Diet - How It Can Damage Your Body?

Around 40% of adults all over the world suffer from hypertension, and many may not know that too much of salt in the diet is the leading cause of developing high blood pressure. Recent studies from the Dietary Approaches to stop hypertension have shown the advantages of taking a lower amount of salt. But the real problem is that most people find salt to be tasteful just like sugar, and this tends to cast its harmful effects on overall health.

What happens to the body when you take too much of salt?
Salt contains sodium, and the kidneys find it difficult to maintain their optimum function when there is an excessive amount of sodium in the bloodstream. When sodium starts to accumulate, the body holds back water for diluting the sodium which enters the blood vessels thereby, increasing the volume of blood in the stream. When this happens, the heart has to overwork, and more pressure will be exerted in the blood vessels. With the passage of time, the excess amount of pressure would stiffen the blood vessels which would pave the way for stroke, heart attack or even heart failure.

What are the signs and symptoms of taking too much sodium?
Most people are generally unaware that there is an excessive salt intake and hence could be dangerous. Therefore, it is important to look for signs that your body is pleading to reduce the consumption of salt.

  1. You start feeling very thirsty: When you eat foods with high amount of sodium such as chips, pepperoni pizza, and ketchup, you are likely to feel dry. This is because of the high amount of sodium that troubles the balance of fluid in the body which makes you crave for water so that it can restore the salt balance.
  2. Your body starts to swell at strange places: You may feel bloated in the morning when you take too much of salt. This phenomenon is termed as edema which means swelling of extra fluid in the tissues of the body.
  3. You may develop stomach ulcers: Taking too much sodium is associated with stomach ulcers as well as cancers in mammals according to the recent journal Infection and Immunity. Even though more research is required, there is no harm in reducing the amount of salt in the diet and enjoy a healthy life.

Research also indicates that reducing the amounts of sodium can lower death rate over the long term. Hence, it is advisable to stick to the recommended amount of 2300mg which is equivalent to one teaspoon of salt per day to lead a healthy life. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
