I am 41 years old. Having blood sugar 160/260, bp 150/100, having lots of stress in office work and family life.
Hi there ~ first things first. You need your blood sugars under control, and this is a priority. You need to get yourself to a diabetologist and consult them to check if you need changes in your medications. I strongly believe that you do. Next off, you need to control your blood pressure and hypertension along with uncontrolled diabetes is the cause of many medical emergencies like stroke, heart attack, etc, stress is the result of or the causative factor in many cases for the medical conditions that you are experiencing. I believe that you may need to consult with a psychiatrist after your medical problems are solved to see if you need any medications or therapeutic measures like relaxation techniques and yoga pranayama dhyana meditation and mindfulness to overcome stress. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

I want to increase my concentration power so that I can stdy better And learn easily please suggest some tips I also forget the things and its hard for me to learn the things.

M.Sc Applied Psychology, Advanced Diploma Child Guidance & Counselling
Psychologist, Delhi
Hello try to study in a place where there are minimal distractions. Organise your study table. Form a schedule for your study. Try to break your study material in smaller chunks and then try to study. Don't study for longer duration, take break in between. This will help you to concentrate and learn better. For increasing concentration you can do simple crossword puzzles. Even practicing yoga and meditation could help. Also it is important to understand the reasons for low concentration. Try to reflect about it. Sometimes when we are stressed due to difficult life circumstances we do face such issues. I hope these tips will help you.

Dear, That is natural. Some medicines act as suppressing agents and if you don't take those medicines, brain craves for it. You should try to manage your anxiety with psychotherapy techniques and then slowly taper the medicine down under the supervision of your psychiatrist or psychologist. Do not stop the medicine suddenly. Take care.

Hi. Its about my friend's father. He is an occasional drinker. But whenever he drinks he gets irritated and starts behaving differently towards his family. At normal times also he sometimes gets irritated suddenly which is not often. My question is. Is it due to depression or anxiety. Kindly help. I will further consult in details.

Hi. Its about my friend's father. He is an occasional drinker. But whenever he drinks he gets irritated and starts be...
He is what is called a binge drinker: drinks occasionally but drinks to levels of intoxication. He is definitely depressed and it looks very like an anger related depression. These things will be discovered in therapy when he seeks that type of help. One very important condition is that he must want to give it up himself for an ideal resolution to the alcoholism. If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. His family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. His children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. If friend's father refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need the family’s written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

Hi lybrate-user, you should tell your friend to advance with age. The fact that you mentioned is it was in past. So why worry about past and spoil present and future. We all have a past, even your friend might have had. So what if his wife loved someone and was intimate with him. The reality is now she is married to your friend and loyal to him. Problem would be if she was still involved with someone, which I understand she isn't. Try to make your friend understand to leave what has happend and loot forward to a good future together. Nothing can be undone and it is a not a sin.

What Are Anti-Depressants?

DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
What Are Anti-Depressants?

Are you suffering from acute depression? Well, in this case nothing can be a better solution than taking anti-depressants. Anti-Depressants are nothing, but specialized medicines or drugs that can help in releasing the stress hormones and finally the depression is completely eliminated.

These medicines need to be taken only if the doctors have prescribed the same, otherwise you might face innumerable complications. Some people think that these drugs are equivalent to sleeping pills; in fact they are not. 

What are the benefits of the ani-depressants?

  1. Provide Tranquillity: You can feel calm by taking the tranquilizers. However, in this case, you have to be very much aware of the perfect dosage as overdose can create innumerable troubles that cannot be easily rectified. In fact, these medicines can be treated as one of the major aspects of any psychological treatment. These drugs are the most powerful of all, and on the other hand, you can have greater effectiveness after consuming the same. If you are facing heath complications while taking these anti-depressants, then you have to immediately inform about the same to the doctor so that you can remain absolutely safe and protected.
  2. Increases Comfort: Your comfort level can be increased to a great extent. If you think that alcohol can provide you comfort, then you are wrong. Your health will get deteriorated a lot by having alcohol. But in this case, you will not face any health complications until and unless dosage is exceeded. All anti-depressants are not suitable for your health, and this is the reason you should listen to your doctor and then only consume the same. You should learn the safest usage of anti-depressants so that you can remain healthy and safe along with the elimination of stress and depression.
  3. Treating Anxiety Disorders: Anxiety is of the most critical types of mental disorders that cannot be easily treated, and this is the reason doctors often prescribe different kinds of anti-depressants so that anxiety can be controlled. In this case, Barbiturate deserves special mention and this drug is suitable for all. Nembutal and Phenobarbital are also very much beneficial in treating anxiety disorders. Acute stress and panic attacks can be resolved only by consuming Benzodiazepines. Brain activity can be reduced, and your nerves can get relaxed. This calming effect is really quite soothing in nature and can help you to stay away from all kinds of depression.

Dear sir/maim, during study my mind is not well concentrated and easily distracted. I can't remember the subjects for 1 day at least. What I can do to increase my memory and concentration power during study. Please reply soon.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

That's a good thing that you want to quit the habit of tobacco chewing. You have to increase self motivation level to quit. Try to use positive substitute like chewing chocklats, soaf, pachak aawala etc. Which helps you to deal with the craving of tobacco.

Dear Pratik, Marijuana can precipitate a psychotic disorder. So you need to be cautious of hallucination, delusion and bizarre behaviour. In the long run, it can lead to amotivational syndrome. So please keep a watch on your job or career or family/relationship daily. Are you smoking nicotine cigarettes also? In that case, you need to watch out for more harmful effects.

I have been feeling extremely depressed since an year now. I'm a class 12 student (i was born on may 4 2000). I was fine till class 10 but things changed when I went to join another school in class 11. I ended up dropping out of that school after 2 months of joining. I became extremely depressed and refused to leave the house. I joined another school but I go to school only once a week, and my teachers are really pissed about it. I lack motivation, I feel extremely low, I just can't get up and be normal and go to school everyday. Waking up in the morning has become extremely hard. I either oversleep or don't sleep at all almost every single night. I talked to my parents about this but they just think its a state of mind and I'm just feeling sad. My dreams would be crushed if I continue being the way that I am. I definitely need as quick fix to this problem as I cannot afford to fail in my class 12 board exams. I have always had high dreams and hopes and if this problem continues, I don't think I would be able to pursue my dreams. I'm failing in every single subject now and I feel horrible and suicidal. Everyday I wonder why do I even bother living? Life just doesn't excite me anymore. I really need to get out of this dark hole and make myself a future. Please help, I really need help so bad right now. Thanks!

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants stop smoking a normal human takes oxygen into lungs 15 -20 times per minute (15 - 20 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day if you need any support please inform.

Naturopathic Treatment For Tension And Stress

MD
Yoga & Naturopathy Specialist, Delhi
Naturopathic Treatment For Tension And Stress

In this fast-moving world, there is no room for self. Growth of IT firms and other long-hour demanding work has led to compromises in your lifestyle - long hours in front of computer, sleeplessness, late-night sleeping, quick bites, leaving us with emotions of anger, anxiety, stress and so on. This is a major reason why people today are hypertensive.

Diseases due to Hypertension: Tension and stress are the building blocks of numerous serious ailments like cardiovascular diseases, asthma, spondylitis (back pain) and grey hair. You may also suffer from gastritis leading to ulcer.

Natural ways to treat Hypertension : Ideally, tension and stress are not diseases. If you can control these, you can control the conditions that take root because of them. Naturopathic (or alternative medicine) treatments for tension and stress are most ideal.

Here are some natural ways to treat hypertension.

  • Sleep well: An adult should sleep for a minimum of 7-8 hours daily. Your body cells rejuvenate while you are in a relaxed state. Many jobs demand late-night work or night shift work. However, your body is meant to sleep early at night. Instead of working late night, you can start your work early.
  • Eat right: Stress leads to elevated levels of sugar in your body. Try to avoid sugary content food. Your body needs balanced diet of proteins, carbohydrates, less of fats, and more of vitamins and minerals. For proteins, eat fish, eggs or white meat. For vegetarians, you can have soy, cereals and protein drinks. Diet must include milk products like yoghurt, milk, vegetables rich in minerals and vitamins and roughage (salads).
  • Destressing exercises: Nowadays, most of the jobs demand sitting for long hours. Physical activity is one of the ways to de-stress your body. A 45-minute walk would also help. Alternatively, yoga or tai-chi type marital art helps to de-stress. Breathing techniques involved in meditation also play a vital role.
  • Anger management: Develop patience. That would automatically lead to anger management at your workplace as well as at home. Be a good listener. Laughter therapy also helps as it releases many happy hormones in the body.
  • Supplement for stress: This has to be the last tip when you do not perform the first four. Multivitamins containing vitamin B and minerals such as magnesium are recommended. You can count on certain herbs such as Ashwaganda, Ginseng, Rhodiola and St. John's Wort.

Despite following these tips, you may still face problems because every human is different and reaction to every remedy could be different. In such cases, approach for expert advice.
