What is the best treatment for bipolar disorder along with taking medication. I am 21 years old.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
What is the best treatment for bipolar disorder along with taking medication. I am 21 years old.
The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role. Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep and loss of touch with reality. Depressive episodes may include symptoms such as low energy, low motivation and loss of interest in daily activities. Mood episodes last days to months at a time and may also be associated with suicidal thoughts. Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications and psychotherapy. Take care.

Diabetic macular oedema ( DME ) is severe form of Diabetic Retinopathy affecting vision.
DME can occur in any stage of diabetes.
Thus, the importance of regular eye check-up for diabetic patients is must. At least once in a year get your eyes fully tested.
Most of the people are unaware of this complication. And many times when I ask my patient about eye test I get answers like , "I got my eye glasses power checked and changed or I don't have cataract. "
Eye check-up for diabetic person is checking the back part of the eye which is called as Retina.
Once DME is diagnosed, immediate treatment is necessary to ensure better outcomes and prevent vision loss.

Diabetic macular oedema (DME) can be treated using laser therapy and/or intravitreal injections with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor injections.


Anti-VEGFs are able to reduce oedema, macula thickening and vascular permeability
They are the treatment of choice for DME because they can improve the patient’s vision ,produce good results and have a low risk of complications.

3 anti-VEGFs are available in market. bevacizumab and ranibizumab, aflibercept .

In some patients, there may be a need for a combination therapy of both laser treatment and intravitreal anti-VEGF injections. DME treatment needs to be personalised to cater to each patient’s conditions. This applies to the frequency of intravitreal anti-VEGF injections, with the injections given as per the patient’s condition instead of following a strict routine frequency protocol.

Dear pt, its time to understand that infections are more common with anal sex, and hence you are suffering from redness and itching as well as burning sensation. These are characteristic signs of inflammation, and you can get rid of these problem if you do not have sex for couple of days. No medicines required. If in case, this problem doesn't resolve byitself, you can revert back to me, for herbal remedy solutions. Take care.

Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

BDS
Dentist, Delhi
Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

A missing tooth can be responsible for causing different health issues. Along with these, a person loses his ability of chewing with missing teeth, develop problems related to speaking and his overall facial appearance also gets affected.

In case of a missing tooth or several missing teeth, it is best advised to get dentures fitted. Dentures are false teeth, which are fitted in the oral cavity in place of lost natural teeth.

Here are several reasons why it is important to fill up a missing tooth:

  1. Shifting of tooth: When a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth start drifting or moving in the open gap where the lost tooth used to be. The surrounding teeth are shifted out of the alignment. This affects the appearance of your face, and your teeth seem crooked and misplaced. It is necessary to replace a missing tooth with dentures in order to restrict the shifting before it is too late.
  2. TMJ Syndrome: After a tooth is lost and the surrounding teeth start shifting, the alignment is changed. This gives rise to problems with biting and creates issues with the jaws. The upper jaw and the lower jaw fail to meet correctly, and this causes strain and damage to the jaw joint. This phenomenon is called TMJ syndrome.
  3. Decay of tooth and gum diseases: After the shifting of surrounding teeth when a tooth is lost, the teeth alignment changes. This makes it difficult for a person to reach several areas in the gum with a toothbrush or floss. This makes plaque and bacteria accumulate in that area and they cannot be reached or cleaned. Tooth decay and gum diseases or periodontal diseases that are likely to affect those spots. These diseases and disorders cause further tooth loss.
  4. Alteration in facial appearance: A missing tooth should be replaced properly and a dentist must make sure that the root of the missing tooth is removed. In case the root is not removed totally, bone deterioration is likely to occur. Bone loss occurs in the jaw area, and this may result in a change or alteration in your facial appearance. A timely replacement of a missing tooth will prohibit bone loss from the jaw area, and you will be saved from any kind of alteration in your facial appearance, which might affect your looks and self-esteem greatly.

A missing tooth should never be ignored and in case you lose a tooth, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. By filling up a missing tooth, you will be able to save yourself from several issues related to the mouth and gums.

Hello, Vitamin B12 if taken through natural diet will be proved to be beneficial. Supplements usually do not give proper supply of this particular vitamin. Include low fat dairy products,soy and its products,shellfish,eggs,meat in your diet. If still insufficient,consider taking its shots.
