All about Overactive Bladder

All about Overactive Bladder

A problem pertaining to the storage function of the bladder that results in bouts of sudden, often uncontrollable urge to urinate is referred to as an overactive bladder. This condition which is marked by unconditioned or involuntary loss of urine can sometimes be quite difficult to stop. People who experience such a condition often feel humiliated and as such tend to limit their social and work life. Despite such, only a few are conscious that a brief evaluation can help them manage and overcome an overactive bladder.

Mechanism of Urination

During urination, the urine proceeds from the bladder and flows into the urethra which is located at the tip of the penis in men and above the vagina in women. As the bladder fills, the nerve signals in the brain prompts urination by coordinating the relaxation and contraction of the urinary sphincter muscles.

Causes and Symptoms of an Overactive Bladder

Primarily caused due to involuntary contraction and relaxation of sphincter muscles, several conditions can lead to overactive bladder. 

Some of them are: 
1. Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders
2. Poor kidney function due to diabetes
3. Medications that lead to increased production of urine
4. Bladder abnormalities like tumors or stones
5. Constipation
6. Excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol

Some of the common signs of an overactive bladder are:
1. Bouts of sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate
2. Awakening at night frequently to urinate
3. Urinating more than eight times a day

Risks
The risk of an overactive bladder gradually increases with age. Conditions, such as diabetes and an enlarged prostate results in the increased likelihood of an overactive bladder. People who have previously faced strokes and heart attacks experience cognitive decline, which often times lead to the development of an overactive bladder.

Urinary incontinence as well as a host of associated factors can be detrimental to your life. Emotional distress, interrupted sleep cycles and depression are some of the observed complications of this condition.

Thus if you experience or entertain suspicion of an overactive bladder, you should consider visiting a general physician who might refer you to a specialist, if need be.

EAT HEALTHY...STAY HEALTHY..

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Surat
EAT HEALTHY...STAY HEALTHY..
We often overeat and assume that we can burn off the excess calories at gym..
But... its not so..as it is easier to take out the calories than to try and burn them off..
To drop 1 kg of body fat= Burn/ reduce 7500 calories.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BETTER OPTION ?
BURNING 200 CALORIES/ DAY THROUGH EXERCISE
OR
CUTTING 500 CALORIES/ DAY FROM DIET
Burning 200 calories/ day than through exercise=1 TO 1 1/2 hrs at the gym on the treadmill/ on the rowing machine
OR
Cutting 500 calories a day from their diet=
Just cutting off a couple of sodas, or burger and pizza with cream cheese...
70% CONTRIBUTION OF WEIGHT LOSS COMES FROM DIET AND JUST 30% FROM EXERCISE...
So choose your foods wisely...
TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY..
1) Eat more of foods that are rich in fiber
2) Avoid oily, fried and spicy food.
3) Make sure to have sufficient amount of water throughout the day...Ideally 8-10 glasses.
4) Aim to achieve and then maintain your ideal body weight.
5) Ensure to follow a regular exercise routine
6) Dinner should be had atleast two hours before bed time for effective digestion.
7) Avoid overcooking, reheating, or deep freezing food.
8) Avoid the use of soda bicarbonate, preservatives, and colors while cooking vegetables and pulses.
9) Prefer the consumption of whole fruits over juices.
10) Use wheat flour without sieving.
11) Never skip a meal, instead have smaller and frequent meals.
12) Always start your day with breakfast. This will keep you energized throughout the day.
13) Avoid refined products and processed foods..
Remember you EAT to LIVE and so DO NOT.. Live to Eat...
Stay healthy .. Stay happy.. ☺

My daughter is 2.11 years old she is active. But is not listening properly. There is mood fluctuate in her behavior. ...
Tantrums of a 3 years old child. Is she your only child, 1st born or jealous and insecure in a big fat joint family that believes in comparisons? anyway attention deficit etc are western concepts and have been belivers of discipline in kids but too much of it can back fire. Put her in a play school or a regular school at 3 and leave her alone to get her mind open up like a parachute, kids are a lot smarter than we presume. You will have to be around for basics but like other kids, she too needs her space, which she will get for sure, while she's away from her over protective mother for few hours a day. Don't stop communication and do get to know her friends also. Try for few days and there's no medicines for hyper behaviour of kids.

It is difficult to comment or point out the reason for under development of brain of your child. However, you can plan for next baby after a gap of 1 to 2 years. It is suggested that you be in touch with doctor regularly once you conceive.

May I know what to take good diet after delivery to be healthy and what food not to take,

MSc

May I know  what to take good diet after delivery to be healthy and what food not to take,
Hi lybrate-user after your delivery it is natural for you to focus all your attention on your newborn baby. But try to look after yourself as well by paying attention to your diet. Eating right can go a long way in helping you get back your strength and energy. After all, your baby needs a strong and healthy mum. And if you are breastfeeding, what you eat passes on to your baby through your milk. So all the more reason to eat well! your family and friends may have a lot of well-meaning advice about the foods you should have while you recover from the delivery. Traditionally, during confinement, women have been given high-calorie food like full cream milk, butter, ghee, dried fruits and sugar. While you do need extra calories if you are breastfeeding, you can get the vital nutrients in a way that doesn't necessarily mean piling on fat as well. We have rounded up a few foods traditionally given during confinement that are rich in minerals and vitamins that you need to recover from childbirth. Read on to find out what traditional confinement ingredients are particularly nutrient-rich and how you can eat them: oats dalia oats are an excellent source of iron, calcium, fibre, carbohydrates and proteins. As oats are high in fibre, they can also help keep constipation at bay. The most common way to have oats is to cook it in a pan and have it with milk, nuts and dried fruit. You can add chopped fruits like bananas (kela), apples (seb) or mango (aam) to increase the nutritional value or make savoury versions like oats upma or khichdi. There are also several quick cooking varieties that you can choose from. Turmeric (haldi) turmeric contains vitamins b6 and c, fibre, potassium, magnesium and manganese. So, it is packed with essential vitamins. Not only is it a standard ingredient in indian cooking, it has been used for centuries to heal external and internal wounds. There is some evidence to suggest that turmeric helps to reduce inflammation. It may also help in healing post pregnancy wounds and cure stomach disorders, although evidence is limited to support this. You can add about half a teaspoon of turmeric to a glass of warm milk. Dry ginger powder (saunth) saunth contains fibre, vitamins b6 and e, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium and manganese. It is a commonly available ingredient whose supposed health benefits include anti-inflammation. In north india, saunth ke ladoos are common. In south india, chutneys are made from it. You can choose to add just a little dry ginger powder to your meals. Pulses and lentils (dals) pulses are considered an essential element of a well-balanced diet. They are rich in fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Pulses such as moong and masoor are easy to digest and you can have them in the form of halwa or khichdi. A bonus with pulses - they help to prevent fat from collecting in your body! carom seeds (ajwain) it is traditionally believed that ajwain, a good source of thymol, not only soothes pain from gas and indigestion, but also cleanses the uterus. There is not much evidence to support this belief, but thymol is known to have antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic properties. You can make a range of dishes with ajwain from paranthas to halwa, or you could simply add it to your food as an extra seasoning. Some also make it a point to drink ajwain water every day. Finger millet (mandua) finger millet, mandua or ragi is an excellent source of calcium and iron, both of which you need in plenty after giving birth. It can help you regain strength after childbirth, and is a good alternative for mums who are allergic to milk and dairy products. You can use finger millet to prepare dosas, idlis, rotis and halwas. Almonds (badaam) almonds are rich in carbohydrates, fibre, vitamin b12 and e and contain minerals like magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, calcium and zinc. As there are so many nutrients packed into an almond, it's an ideal food to have while you recover after childbirth. Almonds can be used in many recipes such as badaam milk, sheera, halwa and so on. If you aren't in the mood to cook they make a great snack to munch on! green vegetables green vegetables are a great source of iron, which you will need to help you recuperate. Consider eating spinach (paalak), beans (frans been), lotus stem (kamal kakri), fenugreek (methi) leaves, apple gourd (tinda), pointed gourd (parwal) or other such green seasonal vegetables. Fenugreek (methi) methi seeds are a great source of iron, calcium, vitamins and minerals. They are commonly considered to help prevent back and joint pains though there is little evidence to support this. You can use them while cooking dal, vegetables, pooris or meats. Fenugreek (methi) tea is also a popular drink for breastfeeding mums. Black and white sesame seeds (til) these small, flat seeds are high in calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, and phosphorous. With all these nutrients, sesame seeds or til are good to help replenish the body of essential minerals. They are also popularly considered helpful in regulating bowel movements. In north india, til ke ladoo are popular but there are many other sweets made of til such as til patti, rewri and chikki. Whatever you choose, make sure to have a well balanced diet with all the required nutrients. It's best to run your meal plans past your doctor. And if your doctor feels you need them, she might prescribe vitamin or iron supplements.

Well, get an ultrasound done to check for endometrial thickness which if more than 9 mm you should opt for a withdrawal bleed, as pregnancy is ruled out. You can practice protected sex till menses are resumed. Regards.

Benefits of Khajoor
खजूर

* दांतों का गलना – छुहारे खाकर गर्म दूध पीने से कैलशियम की कमी से होने वाले रोग, जैसे दांतों की कमजोरी, हड्डियों का गलना इत्यादि रूक जाते हैं।
* रक्तचाप – कम रक्तचाप वाले रोगी 3-4 खजूर गर्म पानी में धोकर गुठली निकाल दें। इन्हें गाय के गर्म दूध के साथ उबाल लें। उबले हुए दूध को सुबह-शाम पीएं। कुछ ही दिनों में कम रक्तचाप से छुटकारा मिल जायेगी।
* कब्ज – सुबह-शाम तीन छुहारे खाकर बाद में गर्म पानी पीने से कब्ज दूर होती है। खजूर का अचार भोजन के साथ खाया जाए तो अजीर्ण रोग नहीं होता तथा मुंह का स्वाद भी ठीक रहता है। खजूर का अचार बनाने की विधि थोड़ी कठिन है, इसलिए बना-बनाया अचार ही ले लेना चाहिए।
* पुराने घाव – पुराने घावों के लिए खजूर की गुठली को जलाकर भस्म बना लें। घावों पर इस भस्म को लगाने से घाव भर जाते हैं।
* मासिक धर्म : छुहारे खाने से मासिक धर्म खुलकर आता है और कमर दर्द में भी लाभ होता है।
* खजूर गर्भवती महिलाओं में दूध की मात्रा में वृद्धि करता है और अधिक ऊर्जा प्रदान करता है।
* आंख की पलक पर गुहेरी रोग हो जाता है। खजूर की गुठली को रगड़कर गुहेरी पर लगाए। आराम मिलेगा।
* मोटापा - खजूर का सेवन मोटापा लाता है तथा शरीर का भार बढ़ता है, अतः मोटे व्यक्ति सोचकर खाए। दुबले व्यक्ति भार बढ़ाने के लिए खा सकते हैं।
* जिनकी पाचन शक्ति अच्छी हो वे खजूर खाएं, क्योंकि यह पचाने में समय लेती है। छुहारे, पुरा वर्ष उपलब्ध रहते है। खजूर केवल सर्दी में तीन महीने। जब जो उपलब्ध हो, उसका सेवन करें।

Migraine Vs. Headache: Know the Difference

Migraine Vs. Headache: Know the Difference

Migraine vs. Headache: know the difference

How to differentiate between a migraine and headache?


When you feel pain or pressure in your head, it may become difficult for you to assess whether you are experiencing a common headache or a migraine. Let's understand how different they are from each other.

A typical headache usually affects both sides of your head and varies from a mild to moderate pain. It can last from 30 minutes to up to a period of one week.

Some specific areas which get affected by a headache are:

  •   Temples
  •   Forehead
  •   Back of your neck

Factors that trigger this headache type are a muscle strain, stress or anxiety.

A migraine, on the other hand, is also a type of a headache which results in an acute throbbing sensation in one part of your head. Usually, migraine headaches are highly painful. Migraine pain makes it difficult for a person to carry out his/her daily tasks. Symptoms or signs associated with migraine attacks are:

  •   Vomiting
  •   Nausea
  •   Sensitivity to sound or light
  •   Pain in the temples
  •   Temporary loss of vision
  •   Pain behind your ear or eye

What are the common causes of a migraine?

  •   Hormonal imbalances in women - fluctuations in oestrogen, especially during menopause or pregnancy seem to trigger a migraine
  •   Drinks like wine and extremely caffeinated beverages
  •   Foods such as salty foods, aged cheese as well as processed foods can trigger the migraine attack.
  •   Medications - vasodilators such as nitroglycerine and oral contraceptives can intensify migraine pain.

How to treat a headache?

Fortunately, you can get rid of stress-induced headaches through over-the-counter treatments, which include:

  •   Aspirin
  •   Acetaminophen
  •   Ibuprofen

How to treat a migraine?

If you experience migraine attacks less frequently, these medicines may give you quick relief:

  •   Triptans, such as rizatriptan (Maxalt) or almotriptan (Axert)
  •   Antinausea medicines, such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine), promethazine (Phenergan) or prochlorperazine (Compazine)
  •   Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, aspirin or ibuprofen

Some preventive tips:

  •   Make changes in your diet such as avoid such foods, including caffeine and alcohol which are believed to trigger headaches.
  •   You can also try muscle relaxation exercises, yoga or meditation to ease the migraine attack.
