My one year baby is not eating anything these days. He only loves to drink water. Even he don't like milk, very low quantity of milk he take. Normally he ate everything. I think it's all due to this summer season. Still m worried about his health. What should I do? What should I offer him to eat that he will like.

Try to give all seasonal fruits to your baby. Give milk him regularly two time at least and protein and iron rich diet he need must. Give him rice and pulses.

If you are married or sexually active first of all do your pregnancy check up. You can do it at home with the kit. If not then there may be hormonal upset or stress may be the cause. Do your harmone checkup.

Although there I no any specialway but yess theree is a special time in woman's menstrual cycle in which chances of pregnancy are high-------the best day for conceiving are 4 days before nd 4 days after your ovulation. Now how do we calculate this ovulation day. It is 14 days minus expected date of your next periods.

Abortion Habitual

BHMS, Certificate in Gynaecology & Obestric, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi

Abortion is the expulsion of products of conception either fully or partially.
The causes of abortion vary from hormonal disturbances any trauma or injury, a severe shock, infectious and foetal abnormalities. It is a nature's way of rejecting a malformed baby.
Other reasons can be:
TORCH infections.
Uterine weakness or displacement.
Cervical canal weakness.

SYMPTOMS:

Bleeding from vagina either profuse or in spots.
Pain is usually the dull type of pain in abdomen and back.

DO'S and DONT'S:

If you have a bad obstetric history like repeated abortions, malformed foetuses, consult a gynaecologist as soon as pregnancy is suspected.
Do not over strain, carry weights, or do laborious jobs during pregnancy.
Take plenty of rest but do take some light exercise. Exercises should be done only under the medical guidance or expert opinion.
Take doctor's advice on diet and medicate.
Do not self-medicate.

Hello doctor I had my periods on 22 july and it lasted for 5 days and I had unprotected sex on 10th august and I took the unwanted 72 pill on 11th august which is the next day before 24 hours. My periods date for every month varies about 3-4 days. So this month I expect it around 22. So as I know they say it bleeds within 10 days approximately. So what I wanted to as you is. If I have bleeding in these 10 days will it be my periods or the effects of the unwanted 72 pill? And if it does not bleed then when will I have my next periods approximately. Please let me know as soon as possible.

Hi do not worry so much. You can have irregular periods in this cycle. In case you do not have periods till 22 august. Just do a urine pregnancy test urself using preganews kit etc. If its negative then do not worry you will have periods sooner or later. Avoid unprotected exposure as condoms not only avoid pregnancy but also protect from many infections.

Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose - SMBG Chart

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Self Monitoring of Blood Glucose - SMBG Chart

Self-monitoring of blood glucose (smbg) is very crucial for those diabetics who are on insulin or on certain oral anti-diabetic drugs which can cause hypoglycemia. To achieve best glycemic control it is essential to know how your daily blood glucose levels are fluctuating in an entire day.

It is easier for a diabetes specialist to adjust drugs or to adjust insulin dose if good smbg record is maintained by the patient.

Normally we check fasting and 2 hr post prandial blood sugar levels in the lab for routine follow-up. There is a bright chance of sugar excursions in the other post meal readings which get unnoticed. Even in case of hba1c or glycated hemoglobin test we get an average result of blood glucose of last 3 months.

In practice, I have seen several patients who had to fast and post prandial blood glucose lab tests in the normal range but hba1c levels below 7 is not achieved because they might have high blood sugars in other post meals which have got unnoticed.

To achieve the best blood glycemic control it is important to control blood sugar levels within normal limits during the entire day and not just fasting or post breakfast levels.

Interpretation of smbg chart:

In the above image of smbg chart, I have mentioned 7 point charting system where you can fill your blood glucometer readings which you take on several spots in an entire day.

Seven points includes:


    Fasting or before breakfast reading
    2 hrs after breakfast
    Before lunch
    2 hrs after lunch
    Before dinner
    2 hrs after dinner or bedtime
    At mid night 3.00 am


This seven point smbg charting approximately covers entire day glucose fluctuations to some extent (of course not as accurate as cgms).

I have also mentioned a comment column in the above smbg chart where you can note down change in food or change in insulin dose or any other changes that you have made which probably caused unusual readings like for example if hypoglycemia occurs at before lunch reading and you have skipped breakfast or had very little snack at breakfast you can mention that.

You do not need to check daily all the 7 points, you can check any one or 2 points randomly depending upon your sugar control.

More uncontrolled blood sugars require more frequent smbg glucometer monitoring.

Monitoring of blood glucose at home in case of diabetic pregnancy or gestational diabetes is also important where frequent monitoring and smbg charting of glucometer readings helps a lot to the patient.

I hope this article will help you to control your blood sugar levels more efficiently.

If you find that some of the post-meal or pre-meal readings are high or low, please consult your diabetologist with smbg chart to adjust your medication or insulin dosage.

If you like my article please share it with your friends and family.

Awareness is prevention!
