Hi, proluton depot injection 250mg contains the active ingredient hydroxyprogesterone caproate, a long-acting synthetic progestogen, used to help prevent preterm delivery. It also contains castor oil and benzyl benzoate. Progesterone is a hormone that is involved in regulating the normal menstrual cycle and is naturally produced by the ovaries during the second phase or luteal phase of the cycle. It acts on the endometrium (lining of the uterus) converting the proliferating phase to the secretory phase to prepare the uterus for a pregnancy. Proluton depot injection 250mg is used to help prevent preterm delivery, which is often the result of insufficient progesterone production by the body to maintain the pregnancy, due to a disruption on the normal hormonal cycle known as a luteal phase defect. Proluton depot injection 250mg is used to treat habitual and threatened abortion to help prevent preterm delivery in women who have had a premature baby in the past. **********do consult your gynaecologist who would give you more detailed information on this********

There is a risk of miscarriage certainly as you are having vaginal bleeding. However if the beta hcg is rising appropriately and the growth on ultrasound is fine, it should be alright. Keep your fingers crossed over the next 2 weeks n b on bed rest n v regular with your medicines and injections. All the best!

My friend has uneven periods. She even have heavy blood flow. What should she do for that?

How old is your friend? some people do have heavy flow. That's normal. But it is important that she rules out any complications. Ask to take a scan first. A blood test - cbc and a thyroid test is also necessary. Get back to s with these results.

Colorectal Cancer - In a Nutshell!

Colorectal Cancer - In a Nutshell!

Colorectal cancer is otherwise known as cancer of the colon or the rectum. This can affect both men and women with age being a major risk factor. Majority of such cancers are seen to occur after age of 50 years.

  1. Type: Colorectal cancers can present as one of the following types: 

    1. Adenocarcinomas are the most common type of colorectal cancers. These cancers begin in the cells making mucous and other fluids. Certain colorectal cancers begin as adenomatous polyps (adenomas) that turn cancerous over a period of time. This is precisely why the adenomas are regarded as pre-cancerous or pre-malignant.

    2. Gastrointestinal (GI) carcinoid tumors, GI stromal tumors, primary colorectal lymphoma, leiomyosarcoma, melanoma & squamous cell carcinoma are certain other colorectal cancers

      • Carcinoid tumors: start in specialized cells that produce hormones, in the intestine.

      • GI Stromal tumors: start in the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC), in the wall of the colon.

      • Lymphomas: start typically in the lymph nodes but they may also start in colon or rectum.

      • Sarcomas: can start in the muscle and the connective tissue in the walls of the colon and rectum.

  2. Gender: It affects both male and female populace.

  3. Etiology: Mostly, the factors that are associated with increased risk of colorectal cancer include the following –

    1. Age exceeding 50 years.

    2. Racial & ethnic background such as African Americans, in the USA, are known to have the highest incidence of colorectal cancer, and mortality rates.

    3. Low fibre and high fat diet. Excessive consumption of red meat (e.g. goat meat, beef, pork, lamb, or liver), processed meats, butter, refined grains, sweets, sugary drinks etc all can increase the risk of colorectal cancer.

    4. Personal history of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) (e.g. ulcerative colitis), Crohn’s disease, adenomatous colorectal polyps, colorectal cancer etc all.

    5. Family history of colorectal cancer or adenomatous polyps etc all.

    6. Inherited syndromes such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and Lynch syndrome (hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer or HNPCC).

    7. Sedentary lifestyle/ associated Obesity.

    8. Type 2 diabetes.

    9. Tobacco and alcohol abuse.

  4. Features or symptoms can vary from person to person depending on the size and location of the tumour. Following are the signs & symptoms mainly -

    1. Changes in bowel habits, diarrhea or constipation or an alternating diarrhea and constipation.

    2. Occult/ blood in the stool, and 

    3. Problems related to blood loss (e.g. anemia, weakness, fatigue, intolerance to exercise, shortness of breath, increased heart rate, chest pain etc all),

    4. Abdominal discomfort (frequent gas/ flatulence, bloating, fullness, cramps, and pain), vomiting etc.

    5. Unexplained weight loss,

    6. Pain with bowel movement,

    7. Feeling that bowel does not empty completely,

    8. Stools are narrower than usual.

  5. Diagnosis: Following are the diagnostics employed. Abnormal blood test results may be indicative of malignancy, but a follow-up imaging/ biopsy is always the gold standard for accurate diagnosis.
    1. Blood: fecal occult blood test, Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) assay values are raised, Hb/ RBC counts may be low.
    2. Imaging: Colonoscopy, Endorectal Scan/ CT Scan followed by Biopsy clinches the diagnosis and the nature of the disease.
    3. Apart from the above-mentioned barium enema X-Ray, USG, Chest X-ray, PET CT scan etc all help detect metastasis, if any. An increase in level of the serum tumor marker ‘CEA’ is indicative of metastatic spread/ proliferation that can be ascertained through a PET CT scan.
  6. Treatment: Conventional treatment includes surgery, radiation and chemotherapy as contextually appropriate. Simultaneously, an adjunctive/ integrative naturopathic treatment with suitable complementary & alternative medicines (CAM)/ therapies too can help improve clinical outcomes and facilitate recovery as feasible contextually.
  7. Prognosis: Preventive measures, earlier diagnosis and right early treatment is key for better prognosis and efficient/ effective therapeutic management. Usually, the chances of cure for an early stage cancer are more. Above-mentioned apart, recovery chances are influenced by the grade, stage of cancer, recurrence and the patient’s general health & vitality etc all too.

  8. Prevention: Rightly said, prevention is always a better choice. Although genetic risks are difficult to modify, still an adherence to a Mediterranean diet, maintaining an ideal body weight and an active lifestyle with due emphasis on regular exercising (for at least 30 minutes daily), de-stressing and relaxation is highly recommended for prevention or reducing the risks of colorectal cancer. A healthy eating plate comprises essentially a low fat diet, fibre rich foods including whole grain cereals, green leafy vegetables cooked using healthy vegetable oils, fresh fruits of all colours as seasonally available and healthy proteins/ fats including fresh fish, poultry, beans, nuts etc all. It is advisable to limit milk/ dairy, preferably of low fat content, to 1 to 2 servings max daily. Although alcohol is optional and is not for everyone, the consumption of the same, if any, has to be strictly in moderation, and is best avoided. Smoking is to be avoided as well. Again, red meat, butter, refined grains, sweets, sugary drinks including carbonated beverages and other high calorie foods etc all, if any, are to be taken sparingly or are best avoided too. Apart from the generic preventive measures as mentioned above, certain pre-malignant conditions, of which adenomas are the most common, can be successfully treated with complementary and alternative medicines too.

Core stability and its importance.
Are you in your 30s or 40s and frequently experience frequent neck, back or shoulder pain? do you feel tired easily or feel weak inspite of a regular routine of jogging? may your core is to blame for that.
Core muscles of the body include the shoulder, chest, back and pelic muscles. A strong core is quintessential requirement for mainting a fit and healthy body.
Poor core strength leads to poor posture, frequent neck, shoulder and back pain and easy fatiguability in performing physical tasks.
Thus if you want to avoids such health problems you should incorporate some form of core strenghthening exercises. Choose from a mix of swimming, plank, burpee, superman exercises (u can google what these exercises and u'l find plenty of links) in addition to your routine jogging/walkingetc. U'l see plenty of youtube videos on core strengthening.
A strong core leads to a strong and fit body. Happy exercising.

Do not take nuforce, as it's not recommended in pregnancy. Rather go for high vaginal swab culture, let the infection be diagnosed and then treated accordingly. Some amount of discharge in preganacy is normal.

Itching without rash could be due to rise in bile acid but late onset itching with rash in could be solely a skin condition (specific in pregnancy) Itching in palm and sole may be seen in drug allergy too. Besides liver and renal function test please review the above factor too. Thyroid abnormalities add up to skin dryness so moisturising twice daily would be helpful too.
