Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

If your tsh level is high inspite of being on thyroxine you need to up the dose. Then recheck the tsh and t3 t4 levels in two months to see if that is the right dosage for you. Also start taking folic acid supplements. Only then you should try for a pregnancy.

Which are the foods, vegetables & fruits which should be avoided to escape from THYROID PROBLEMS. What all precautions should be taken to control THYROID problems. Is consumption of chicken increase the THYROID levels in your body.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Thyroid related conditions like hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism are due to either autoimmune conditions or related to iodine deficiency. Only when a person develops hypothyroidism then it is better to avoid certain foods like soy beans and soy containing food products. There is also a list of products like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, radish, coffee & pea nuts etc to be consumed very sparingly. There is no restriction on taking other foods. Thanks.

Hi doctor. I have diabetes. how to control it please help me in this and its 268.
It is essential to start anti diabetic drug treatment with either oral drugs or insulin injections. In addition exercise (brisk walking for 1 h a day) and restricted diet avoiding sweets, direct sugar are necessary. Untreated diabetes affects every vital organ in the body adversely, so please take care.

Hi, I am 44 years MALE, suffering from HYPER THYROID (GRAVES DISEASE) from 3 months. Now taking METHIMEZ Tablets. Any best medicine either from Ayurveda, yunani, homeopath, allopathy etc.

There is nothing like best medicine. Every doctor advises his patient best medicine which means the medicine which can treat/control your problem without harm. Graves disease should be treated and can't be left as such and should be treated under supervision of a specialist.

Shivaniji, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 31.07 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). For a prediabetic it is absolutely essential to maintain near normal weight (about 66 kgs), plus exercise daily for over 1 hour then take a healthy and balanced diet that provides exact calories based on your ideal body weight. Plus avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks (olas), bakery items and foods made out of maida. Avocado is a good fruit, can be had. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. "Shivering of fingers" can be due to a multiple reasons. If one gets low blood glucose, then there are other attended symptoms also. But if a person is normal (no diabetes, not on any hypoglycemic drugs), it is unlikely to occur. Or the other reason could be high insulin leading to low glucose. Therefore, unless your blood glucose is actually tested, no comment can be made. Thanks.
