My question is :- Is Diabetes at risk with Clozapine?
Thanks.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Recent reports have raised the concern that clozapine increases the risk for diabetes mellitus. Accurate pharmacoepidemiologic data on whether such a hazard exists and its magnitude are needed to enable clinicians and patients to make proper treatment decisions about clozapine. I suggest you to consult your psychiatrist for more clear insight. Take care.

The 8 Foods That Bloat Your Belly!

Do you feel your stomach bloat after meals? If you notice, this doesn't happen after every meal? Only at times. And at other times when you eat specific foods. Well, there are foods cause your stomach to bloat, so the wise thing to do is to know about them and avoid them!

Here are a few of the biggest criminals:

1. Cold drinks: Yes, these carbonated drinks have numerous side effects on your health. One of them is that they bloat your tummy. Beer happens to fall in this category too.

2. Dairy Products: For the lactose intolerant, dairy products are almost like poison. The intolerance can be mild, moderate of severe, but one of the symptoms is gas. You can try to limit your consumption of dairy products.

3. Apples: Apples and pears are known to contain a high percentage of fiber. While they are important for us and should be eaten, if is good to know that they can affect sensitive tummies. Eat bit by bit, and if it helps, peel the skin and then eat.

4. Few Vegies: While they are excellent health foods, asparagus, cabbage and broccoli are the vegetables which cause gas in the stomach, which in turn leads to bloating of the tummy.

5. Sodium: Sodium is also another reason for bloated tummies, so it is advised to limit salt intake.

6. Fast Foods: Fast foods like sausages, fried foods, ice cream, sweetened products , etc are known to cause the belly to bloat.

7. Rice Preparations: Rice is known to swell up inside the stomach once it gets water, hence making the stomach feel bloated.

8. Hard Drinks: Alcohol is also said to add weight near the stomach and make it feel bloated.

I am 16 year old boy and I want to know if I masturbate twice a week will it reduce my stamina level.

General Physician, Delhi
I am 16 year old boy and I want to know if I masturbate twice a week will it reduce my stamina level.
Hi, masturbation thrice a week is enough and healthier but negative effects of excessive masturbation can be 1. After each ejaculation, you’ll notice the firmness of the next erection may get slightly softer and spongier, depending on how close apart the erections are. 2. Negative psychological impact on a person. Many people feel shame and guilt because of their masturbation habits. 3. Masturbation can cause a bending in your penis if you continually are using the same hand and especially if you masturbate aggressively 4. There is current research that states increased testosterone production is linked to DHT production, which is associated with male pattern hair loss.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Night fall cannot be a reason for body pain and night fall cannot damage any nerves. Please check the qualifications and ability of that doctor who told you so. Your problem could be psychosomatic. I suggest online counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. You can get married. No problems. Take care.

I'm using sorliv syrup for my 4 months baby as per doctor suggestion per day 2.5ml and 3 times a day,started from past 3 days and doctor asked us to continue for 15 days because he was doing motion once in two days and he was not comfortable.But now I can see water with his motion like a loose motion.So is this safe to continue for 15 days or shall I stop the syrup?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Sorliv syrup is prescribed for the treatment of liver disorders, asthma symptoms in adults, occasional constipation along with several other problems. Sorliv syrup contains the salts sorbitol, tricholine citrate as active ingredients. It is available in syrup form. Intima ipca labs manufactures sorliv syrup. Sorliv syrup is used in the treatment, control, prevention, & improvement of the following diseases, conditions and symptoms: liver disorders asthma symptoms in adults occasional constipation for your 4 month old baby if this was given for loose motion it is better to atop it and also stop bottle feeding if you give. For babies never feed from bottle with nipple and instead feed from a cup with spoon or a sipper. Breast milk is the best milk for babies. If you stop bottle feed itself the loose motion will stop and as a probiotic give enuff 10 mg sachets dissolved in a little water twice a day and breast milk and then contact me.

Why It is Important to Get Regular Test Done for STIs?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
Why It is Important to Get Regular Test Done for STIs?

Benefits of getting regular tests for STIs

STIs or sexually transmitted diseases are infections whose transmission to a healthy person from an infected person happens through sexual contact. However, with modern medicine and diagnostic techniques, there are ways to prevent, detect and cure them effectively and quickly.

Not all diseases are curable though and it is best to follow preventive measures. Also, for sexually active adults it is an absolute necessity to get tested regularly for their health as well as the well-being of their partners.

Why do people tend to avoid getting tested for STIs or sexually transmitted infections?

One of the major factors that avert people from regular tests is the social stigma attached with sexually transmitted diseases. It is absolutely imperative for sexually active adults to go for regular checkups so that if they have any infections or diseases, it can be diagnosed quickly and remedial measure can be taken appropriately.

The benefits of regular checkups

Some of the benefits of regular checkups are mentioned here:-

  • Regular checkups can detect problems at a stage when the conditions may not have progressed too much and this will make it easily treatable.
  • With HIV positive patients, the quicker the testing gets done the quicker the treatment can be started. Thus, can prevent the onset of AIDS.
  • Regular checkups can control the progression of the diseases such as Chlamydia, which if left untreated can cause permanent infertility.
  • Getting a prospective partner tested is also a good idea as this can enable one to protect themselves from STIs.
  • Symptoms for certain STIs can be similar to many other non-sexual or non-venereal diseases. Thus getting tests done is the only way to get to know if there is an STI or if it is some other nonsexual disease.
  • HPV or Human Papilloma Virus can be detected easily with regular STI checkups and thus appropriate treatment can be started. If HPV isn't detected early, it can manifest much later in the form of cancer, which makes it more important to get yourself checked early on.

My both ear are operation but my hearing power is low but I do not take a hearing machine what I am do.

MS - ENT,MBBS
ENT Specialist, Kolkata
My both ear are operation but my hearing power is low but I do not take a hearing machine what I am do.
Hello lybrate-user kindly share your pta reports and what type of ear surgery done. Then I can help you better. In case of hearing loss due to nerve problem, the less you hear the less sound energy reaches your brain and gradually the nerve starts degenerating. That's why hearing augmentation is important when you are hearing less. It's comparable to audiological physiotherapy for your hearing nerves hope this helps
