Hello, use this home remedy to get relief. Home remedy:- hello, follow these home remedies:- 1. Ginger -- cut one medium-size fresh ginger root into thin slices. Bring one cup of water to a boil and add the ginger slices. Boil for three minutes, and then simmer for another five minutes. Remove from heat, strain, and add honey to taste. Sip it slowly. Drink ginger tea two or three times a day to ease stomach ache and improve digestion. 2. Asfoetida:- simply add a pinch of asafetida to a glass of warm water, mix it well and drink it two or three times a day. You can also add a pinch of rock salt. This remedy is equally effective for both a stomach ache and gas. Take five phos 6x, 5 tabs twice daily regularly for 15 days for knee pain. Thank you.

How Diabetes Affects Kidneys: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, DDM, CCACCD
Diabetologist, Mumbai
How Diabetes Affects Kidneys: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

Each tiny action we commit involves the risk of a condition, disease or disorder. For instance, sneezing a bit too hard can rupture an eye vessel, or having your face right up against the wind in a moving bus can expose you to germs. Diabetes is as prevalent as common cold in every household and there is no end to the list of causes that can make you suffer from it. While regular check-ups, medications, insulin shots can help you cope, there are certain measures that if followed, can enable you to avoid the risk of secondary yet fatal diseases. Diabetic nephropathy is one such condition.

When Kidney is affected to the extent that it cannot perform its functions(like excretion of wastes in urine, filtering blood from waste, maintaining electrolyte balance,etc.) properly, it is called as Nephropathy. The reason behind kidney damage could be many, but if diabetes is the prime cause, it is known as diabetic nephropathy in medical terms.

A few features of this disorder are as follows:

  1. The kidneys comprise of several small blood vessels, which perform the function of sifting waste from your blood. Diabetes at an advanced stage can impede smooth functioning of these vessels. As a result, the kidneys malfunction or a person faces kidney failure.
  2. Nephropathy brings along some other health issues as well. A person's blood pressure may increase as a result, thus making him or her prone to heart attacks and strokes. Sharp rise in cholesterol and triglyceride levels has also been noticed.
  3. A doctor will check for the presence of a protein called albumin in the patient's urine to know if you suffer from nephropathy or not. Other tests to determine the functioning of kidneys are - S.Creatinine, eGFR, Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (ACR), 24 Hour Urine Protein, Renal Function Tests, etc. A diabetic person should therefore go in for yearly tests.

In a given situation such as this, dialysis or kidney transplant comes to your aid. Both are done when kidney functions are irreversibly damaged. Dialysis can be of two kinds; Hemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis. Dialysis (also called as Renal Replacement Therapy) remedies kidney damage and kidney failure by using a machine to extract salts, wastes and other fluids in excess from the blood to let your blood have a healthy composition. Dialysis should only be done under the supervision of an experienced nephrologist for best results.

Is it bad to have sex every day?

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Is it bad to have sex every day?
Is it bad to have sex every day? generally speaking, there isn't any harm, as long as you and your partner are both happy with this. Having sex seven or more times a week is considerably more than the average, which is just under twice a week. However, many loved-up couples, particularly in the honeymoon phase, will have daily sex and this reflects the new passion you have for one another. If you're further into a relationship and still having daily sex, many would ask" what's your secret. There are several ways to communicate in a relationship and bonding through sex is a great way to stay connected as a couple.

A question of balance
The only issues would be if one partner doesn't want to have as much sex as the other, in which case the frequency needs to be negotiated. Most couples have to navigate this area at some point. The other issue is if your focus is so much on sex that you have no other way to relate to each other. Sex shouldn't be the only activity you enjoy together.
If you're single, daily sex isn't necessarily harmful, but it does indicate a rather one-dimensional approach to life. And the more sex you have with multiple partners, the more you increase your risk of unsafe sex. There are a few signs that could indicate your daily sex isn't healthy and may border on a sex or love addiction. If you find yourself thinking about, planning or pursuing sex for the majority of the day or night, so that your focus is not on your responsibilities, this is a problem.
Libido naturally fluctuates across the lifespan, and as a reflection of what's going on in your life and relationship. The amount of sex you're having must feel as though it's in balance with the rest of your life. The moment you feel it is unbalanced, take some time to get it back. Your life as a couple will be better for it.

Glaucoma prevention not help full any idea to fix this. When I can stop drops? How can I get relief? Please suggest something.

MS - Ophthalmology, FICO, FRCS - I & II
Ophthalmologist, Mathura
Dear patient yes to prevent glaucoma is very difficult but what is required is regular checkup of vision and eye pressure (intra ocular pressure) by eye specialist after the age of 40 years specially if you have family history of glaucoma. If glaucoma is diagnosed early and treatment started loss of vision is reversible and vision is stabilized. How to fix glaucoma depends on type of glaucoma. Silent or painless glaucoma also known as chronic simple glaucoma, painful glaucoma (acute congestive glaucoma. In first type patient does not know till late as no pain so diagnosis is delayed. But in acute type it is diagnosed early so vision is restored fast. Many tests are required to confirm the diagnosis of glaucoma and type of glaucoma like eye pressure measurement, automated visual field analysis, fundus exam specially optic disc, corneal thickness, retinal nerve fiber thickness around optic disc and gonioscopy. Once glaucoma is diagnosed use of anti glaucoma eye drops are life long under supervision usually causing lot of financial burden on patient that, s why glaucoma surgery is done bit early to reduce medications but this is case specific. You will get relief by properly following doctor, s advise. Normally first medical treatment is started. Many anti glaucoma eye drops and tablets (diamox) are there, best decided by eye specialist. If eye pressure is controlled by medications usually medications are life long but in very select cases surgery is done to control eye pressure. One of common side effect of long use of anti glaucoma eye drops is dry eye which also need to be tackled with eye soothing eye drops like refresh tears. Hope this answers your query about glaucoma.

If I want to take meal only one time in a day then which is better? Lunch or dinner? And why?

MBBS
General Physician, Jalpaiguri
If I want to take meal only one time in a day then which is better? Lunch or dinner? And why?
This is a very absurd question I have ever heard. One meal a day will make you pay very badly sooner or later in your life, my dear friend. Lunch should always be heavy even if you are late. Morning meal should be moderate or light but very important for your body mechanism to start the day. Dinner may be skipped but not completely. You may take soups or tea or sweets. Never miss morning meal and lunch meal. Let your stomach rest at peace at night with some light or very light diet. Night meal should be light or very light unlike rest of the day because our stomach too needs rest like our whole body and brain at the end of the day.

I have gastric at problem since few years. Many pills and checkup didn't see any change what should I do.

MBBS
General Physician,
I have gastric at problem since few years. Many pills and checkup didn't see any change what should I do.
Gastric problems can be very many. It seems as if you are bothered with irregularities of your bowel habbits. Let me tell you how can your digestive system be regularized. First of all have a look at your life style. Regular sleep and dietary habbits, in most of cases suffice. Any addictions, may be smoking, drinking, tobacco chewing etc. Also have bad effects on digestion. In addition, increase mix salad helps a lot. Add fruits of season compulsorily to lunch. Extra effort for the problem may be taken in the form of 2 spoons of honey added to half a cup of warm water every morning empty stomach is excellent remedy. A week or so, if followed the above, still persistent, medicines may be prescribed. Hope satisfied regards.
