Chicken pox marks require time and patience to fade off. Apply nuteg paste in milk just the way chandan paste is made by rubbing and apply it on the scars at bed time. To analyse the results take a closeup photograph in similar lighting condition after a month. Deeper ones might take more than 4 months of patience.

I have constipation. For last 3 days. Please advise.
Constipation is easily manageable through a prescribed diet. I will prescribe a high fiber diet customized to your case. Do avoid over-the-counter laxatives. Increasing exercise is also important if you lead a sedentary lifestyle. For stubborn constipation in I may recommend a non-digestible sugar called lactulose or specially formulated electrolyte solutions. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

I have got 3 questions please if you can answer me individually. Ist question: Does sugar in fruit like bananas or any other fruit cause weight gain? 2nd question: is banana or any other sweet fruit harmful for diabetic patients? 3rd question: I have a tendency to eat fruits like bananas (6 banana/day)-am I at risk of developing conditions like hyperglycemia (high sugar) or hyperkalemia?

May I answer your questions one by one. 1) ALL food stuffs, including fruits contain sugar. If by "weight gain" you mean overweight, YES... theoretically, the sugar in fruits can cause weight gain. 2) All fruits are NOT equal in terms of the quality & quantity of sugars they contain. Therefore, some fruits are OK, while some are not. 3) Bananas, taken as such (whole), in reasonable quantities will NOT cause diabetes (if that is what you mean) or hyperkalemia. But 6 bananas/ day is NOT reasonable for a person who takes other food stuffs too!!!

Darkening behind neck ? Sign of Diabetes?

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Darkening behind neck ? Sign of Diabetes?
Many overweight & obese people have darkening behind neck, darkening in armpits and other parts of body with creases and folds like elbows, knees, knuckles, etc. which is commonly mistaken as smudge of dirt or uncleanliness or lack of hygiene. Some people think that it is due to repeated friction caused by necklace or chains etc. In fact it is a sign of diabetes which is already developed or going to develop.

This darkening is due to excessive cell growth & differentiation of fibroblasts caused by excess of insulin in the body especially in obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients.

In obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients excess amount of fat especially abdominal fat (tummy fat) causes resistance to action of insulin secreted by pancreas and hamper its action. In return body produces more and more insulin from pancreas to keep blood sugar under control. This excess amount of insulin secreted by body promotes this skin cell growth and which leads to acanthosis nigricans.

After producing excess amount of insulin pancreas start exhausting and which leads to developing diabetes.

At this stage diabetes can be prevented by simple lifestyle modification & moderate weight loss.

M.Sc - Psychotherapy, Diploma in Family Medicine
Sexologist,
You should be. But if you do not know your partner well enough to know their HIV status, why take the relationship further ? Get yourself and partner tested, and do repeat the tests after three months to confirm. Till then do not engage in unprotected sex.

Taking small amount of normal rice will not create any problems for you. You can take a combination of multi-grain atta roti along with some rice. It is never the 'Rice' which creates weight but it is the Biryani or Fried Rice which adds to the weight. So if you don't like Brown Rice, just leave it aside. Try to add more fruits to your diet. Drink more water. Eat slowly and mindfully. Eat less but enjoy your food instead of feeling guilty. Food is meant to be enjoyed and relished. If you are looking for a simple - do able diet which can create permanent impact you can consult privately.
