Mr. Lybrate-user, if one has diabetes mellitus, then regular blood sugar check up is necessary. One can do this test at home with a glucometer. Frequency depends on severity and type of treatment. Because if a patient is on insulin then very frequent testing is needed. Otherwise initially once a week, later at once in 15 days or so. Secondly once in 3 to 6 months hba1c% should be checked. Also periodically lipids (cholesterol) also should be checked. Also once a year get the eyes checked for any retinal involvement, this is a very necessary test.

Picking Your Nose Secretly - Can It Be Harmful for Your Body?

Picking Your Nose Secretly - Can It Be Harmful for Your Body?

Do you have a habit of secretly picking your nose? This is a very common bad habit, which many people carry out, in spite of it being a habit which is frowned upon. There is a certain amusement that people seem to enjoy about picking the nose. However, on top of being a very unhealthy and unhygienic habit, it is harmful for the body as well.

Why should you stop picking your nose?

Picking your nose is quite dangerous for your body. Your fingers contain many harmful germs, which are transmitted into your nostrils when you are digging into your nose. A specific germ known as Staphylococcus aureus can live in the front part of your nose. Combining the habit of nose picking along with the germs, may lead to the development of abrasions. These abrasions can bleed and promote more germs. As a result, the crust and irritation increase the more you keep on picking your nose. Based on where you are and what you have touched with your hands, some seriously dangerous germs may enter your body, causing health hazards and complications.

Children are notorious by nature and it is very common among children to pick their nose resulting in nose bleeding. The blood supply to the nose is quite vigorous in nature and there are five arteries that reach to the front part of the nose or Kisselbach’s plexus. When an abrasion takes place, there are chances of severe bleedings, due to damage to these fragile arteries.

Other reasons

  1. Picking your nose may lead to the development of pimples in the nose hair follicles.

  2. In case a small pimple in the nose develops into a boil, the infection may travel to the brain through your bloodstream.

  3. In case you are suffering from cold and your sinus is blocked, picking your nose may lead to the development of sinusitis. This happens because of the introduction of various bacteria present beneath your fingernails into the nose. They may proceed to the sinus cavity from your nose. Due to insufficient drainage, the bacteria will multiply and cause a sinus infection.

  4. Picking your nose on a regular basis makes your nose a breeding group of dangerous germs. If you do not wash your hands after picking your nose, these germs may be transmitted to others.

If you feel some irritation in your nose or feel a constant stuffiness, you should use a tissue paper to soothe your nostrils. Avoid using your fingers for picking and if the irritation lasts even after cleaning it, you should consult a doctor.

My mothers legs (ankle) swells in summers y is it like this we have consulted to many doctors but cant cured.

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
My mothers legs (ankle) swells in summers y is it like this we have consulted to many doctors but cant cured.
Hi lybrate-user, in summer ankle edema is seen due to insufficient intake of water and excess intake of salt which causes water retention. Also due to warm weather blood vessels are dilated and cause pooling of blood and edema. Sitting and walking for long time may also cause edema. Be well hydrated, drink enough water, decrease salt intake, do ankle exercises, and walk after the weather cools down. All the best.

Need Relief From Constipation - 5 Ayurvedic Remedies at Your Rescue

Need Relief From Constipation - 5 Ayurvedic Remedies at Your Rescue

Constipation is a irritating problem that mostly occurs due to the absence of adequate amount of fibre or water in your diet. It is caused by slow movement of food through the digestive tract. Constipation can occur due to poor bowel habit, eating less fiber, medications, hormonal issues or some other disease.

Here are some common solutions that can seriously help you out in constipation:

  1. Yogurt: Excellent source of probiotics, which contain beneficial bacteria are a great remedy for constipation. However, you can take the humble homemade yogurt full of beneficial bacteria in your meal every day and get relief from constipation.

  2. Oatmeal Tea: When things are severe, oatmeal is fibrous, honey is healing and moisturizing and chamomile is an anti-inflammatory agent, which soothes the stomach. Together, they can stop severe constipation. So, take a cup of water and add three teaspoons of oatmeal, a tea bag of chamomile and two teaspoons of honey. Drink 2-3 times a day if your problem is severe.

  3. Baking soda: Baking soda is an effective cure for gas, pressure and pain in the digestive tract and stomach ache as excessive air is released from the body by its action. It also functions as a laxative by making the passage of accumulated waste products through the intestines a smooth process. Moreover, stool is loosened and passed without pain on its consumption. Directions - take a quarter cup of warm water and stir a teaspoon of baking soda into it. Consume the mixture as quickly as you can.

  4. Castor oil: Castor oil is often referred to as a stimulant laxative and is a very useful remedy for constipation. Castor oil enables smooth movement and functioning of the intestines, making it easier for stool to pass. Directions - drink 1 to 2 teaspoons of castor oil on an empty stomach. It takes about 8 hours to show its effect, so decide which time of the day will be suitable for you to consume it.

  5. Coconut oil and flaxseed: A great combination coconut oil is a wonderful hydrating agent and eases stool. Flaxseeds help in the elimination of toxins, excess fat and cholesterol from the body. So in one tablespoon of coconut oil add half a teaspoon of flaxseeds, chew well and eat this every morning. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

There are alot of reasons for stomach pain. It could be acidity, gastritis, ulcer being the most common ones .You need to get a consultation to know whats going on. For temporary relief you could have curd and antacids to help you with your pain. Do not eat anything spicy or acidic like orange and lemons. Its better to get yourself evaluated.

I am not feeling fully satisfied sexually as I am finishing off very fast, give me your valuable advice.

Homeopath, Sindhudurg
I am not feeling fully satisfied sexually as I am finishing off very fast, give me your valuable advice.
Sexual stamina involves lasting long during sexual intercourse and maintaining an erection for as long as possible. However, many men can get and maintain an erection yet they leave their women feeling very dissatisfied in bed. tips -don’t neglect your diet. Loading up your body with stimulants and depressants on a daily basis (in the form of caffeine, sugar, alcohol, or cigarettes) has far-reaching negative effects on your health and libido. Cut back on the coffee. treatment - homoepathic treatment is recommended for men whose sexual performance is low or those who are suffering from sexual dysfunction and those who wants permanent cure without side effects.

You will need to continue medications as per the advise of your cardiologist. Just having CABG doesn't mean blockages cannot recur or appear in new places, so medicines are important. Please follow the advise of your doctor.

Hi, get your blood tested for cbc, hb%, s. Calcium, s. Ferritin, esr and s. Glucose (f & pp). Simple nutritional deficiency can cause general weakness of the body. Would advise you to take homoeopathic medicines - alfaalfa tonic and five phos. - both thrice daily, and let me know about your condition after a month. Management: daily intake more of healthy, nutritious and balanced food which includes green vegetables, seasonal fruits, salads, legumes, pulses, eggs, milk & milk products, oats, cornflakes, muesli, nuts, lean meat (chicken & few seafood), etc. Keep yourself well-hydrated by taking at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day, also increase intake of other fluids like coconut water, shikanji, jaljeera, gulkand, rooh-afza, lassi, curd, etc. Which has got cooling effect on the body during this hot summer weather. Sleep for 6-9 hrs at night and 1-2 hrs. During daytime. Avoid going out or playing under the sun, best time is after sunset. Wear a hat with broad brim, wear sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun. Don't awake late nights, follow motto of'early to bed, early to rise' avoid unnecessary exertion or stress.
