Hi lybrate-user, this sounds like plantar fasciitis which is an inflammatory condition of the foot. This can be confirmed by consulting a pain physician/ orthopedician and taking a foot x ray. Simple things that can be done include rest, icing your foot/sole twice a day, orthotic plantar arch supports, elevation of foot in the night on a pillow. Sometimes patients require injections if the conservative management fails. Please confirm diagnosis and proceed.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello intact slimming pills are not much help. You have to reduce your dietary intake by 15 to 20 per cent daily, then increase your exercise to about one and half hour at least 5 to 6 days a week. Totally avoid deep fried foods and direct sweets. Target a reduction of 2 kg per month. Then you may be able achieve it.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then the only option is to either take oral anti- diabetic drugs or take insulin injections or both. These drugs hardly cause any side effects. If you stop the treatment then sugar levels will go high leading to serious side effects with all the vital organs. There no home remedies for treating diabetes. Still you want stop medication choice is yours. Thanks for the question.

Hi lybrate-user first of all just hang on brother and never get disheartened by the negative things that we doctors keep on telling patients. Cirrhosis is chronic progressive condition and decompensation means that the condition is showing complications- which in your case is obviously ascites. Most importantly and I cannot overemphasize this more- do not take salt more than 2gms in a day. Your ascites will increase with more salt. Avoid pickles, processed foods, ketchups, chutneys, infact anything that comes out of a packet or bottle has salt as preservative- so that amounts to invisible salt of your diet. Second, take less water. Only 500 to 600 ml more than your urine output. In hospitals we measure that output but at home - we can not. But you can be aware. Take green leafy vegetables- they are good source of vit k. Or you can ask your doctor for vit k inj supplementation. Do not stress. Tc.

Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) - How It Can Help You Get Pregnant?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO
IVF Specialist, Mumbai
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) - How It Can Help You Get Pregnant?

There are many reasons leading to infertility, but one of the main causes is the inability of the sperm to travel all the way up to the uterus to fertilize an egg. This is caused by defective sperms and could be due to poor sperm quality, poor motility, etc. There are multiple reasons for this, and even smoking, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, etc. could be reasons.

Many technical advancements in fertility treatments are being done, and they try to keep the natural process of fertilization intact, at the same time improving the chances of success. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI, often used as a standalone term iksee) improves the rate of fertilization in that the sperm is directly injected into the egg. The environment of this artificial fertilization is completely controlled, and the fertilized egg is then placed into the womb for further growth. It is one of the recent methods of improving fertility, a part of ART (assisted reproductive technology).

Indications:

  1. Poor sperm perms motility

  2. Semen where sperm concentration is low

  3. Male infertility with unidentifiable cause

  4. Poor sperm quality, with sluggish sperms

  5. Ejaculation issues, such as retrograde ejaculation (semen is ejected into the bladder)

  6. Useful in couples who have failed IVF.

What to expect? 

The following outlines some of the steps for both male and female before and during the procedure.

Before the procedure - males:

  1. First step is the sperm collection; a screening is first done

  2. Sperms collection happens through either masturbation or directly from the testicles via a small incision

  3. Sperms could be collected fresh or collected and frozen for later use

Before the procedure – women:

  1. In the normal menstrual cycle, only a single egg is released. However, prior to ICSI, the woman is given ovulation drugs, which are high-dose hormone injections prior to ovulation. This ensures multiple eggs are released, which are then retrieved for fertilization in the external environment.

  2. Blood and urine are monitored regularly to identify the ovulation time, and eggs are collected within 24 to 36 hours of release

During the procedure - How ICSI happens:

  1. A healthy egg is chosen and placed in a glass tube, and a sperm is introduced to ensure fertilization

  2. This could be repeated in multiple tubes, and the most healthy one could be chosen to be implanted into the uterus

  3. Some of the fertilized ones could be frozen for later use, in case the implanted embryo fails to grow as expected

  4. The success rate for this procedure is quite high as the fertilization rate is almost 80 - 85 % 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to effectively control diabetes first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs, as prescribed by the doctor with out missinga dose. Exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain weight and improve insulin action, reduce resistance to its action. Plus take a restricted diet based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels, and extent of daily exercise. Thses things together will help in controlling diabetes. All the best.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo.

At our clinic we have integrated external allopathic applications with internal ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation.
