I am not sure who got you hooked onto sleeping pills. On a longer run they will shrink your brain, resulting in early onset dementia, personality changes, memory changes, even withdrawal seizures. Kindly consult a psychiatrist, get your sleep evaluated, and he will gradually wane you off the sleeping pills and give pills which promote sleep by acting on the cause of sleep disturbance, he may also educate you on sleep hyigiene.

Infertility - Busting Common Myths And Facts!

There are some common misconceptions about infertility, and these misconceptions should be eliminated as soon as possible so that the actual facts can be known. There are many online sites where you can find detailed information on the scientific explanations regarding infertility, and you can follow them.

List of myths and facts regarding infertility

Myth: The menstrual cycle of a woman is for 28 days.
Fact: Normal cycle ranges between 21-36 days.

Myth: A woman can have pregnancy on the day one of menstrual cycle.
Fact: The released eggs remain viable for almost 12-14 hours, and a woman can get pregnant after an intercourse done two-days after ovulation and five-days before ovulation.

Myth: Infertility occurs due to stress.
Fact: Ovulation can surely get delayed due to hormone suppression, but infertility does not occur due to stress.

Myth: Sperms stay active for few hours.
Fact: Sperms stay alive at least for five days.

Myth: Men with a higher sexual-drive will have a normal sperm-count.
Fact: No relation is there in between fertility and virility. Sometimes, it has been found that men having a higher sex-drive do not produce sperms.

Myth: Women have to wait for three months to conceive after stopping the usage of contraceptive pills.
Fact: As soon as a woman stops pill usage, hormonal levels go back to normal condition, as a result of which ovulation begins immediately.

Myth: Only females have infertility troubles.
Fact: Both women and men suffer from infertility troubles as per the current scientific studies.

Myth: Ovulation occurs in a woman on the 14th day of menstrual cycle.
Fact: Ovulation can be calculated by counting 14 days backwards from the past menstrual cycle's last day.

Myth: Daily sex can increase conceiving chances.
Fact: During ovulation, having sex each day, especially in between 12-16th day of the cycle can be the best timing.

Myth: Fertility troubles occur at 35.
Fact: Peak fertility timing in a woman's life is 20, and this might continue until late 30s. Fertility troubles might even arrive at a younger age. With age, conception chances get declined, especially after 35. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Which is the best juice for diabetes during summer after exercising in the morning.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a diabetic person it is better to avoid all the juices. No juice is good. If you are looking for protein supplement then milkshakes with protein (without sugar) can be used. Thanks.

Keep Diabetes at Bay to Avoid Cardiovascular Disease

Keep Diabetes at Bay to Avoid Cardiovascular Disease

One of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) is diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to major heart problems. It is thus pertinent to take timely actions to control the insulin-related issues and save ourselves from CVD.

It is important to understand how diabetic patients are more prone to CVD than others to take pre-emptive actions to control it.

  1. Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial Fibrillation means an irregular and rapid heart rate which can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure and other cardiac issues. Individuals with diabetes are at an increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation. This risk is higher among patients with a longer duration of treated diabetes and poorer glycemic control.
  2. Hyperglycemia: Hyperglycemia means high (hyper) glucose (gly) in the blood (emia). Your body needs glucose to properly function. Your cells rely on glucose for energy. Hyperglycemia is a defining characteristic of diabetes, when the blood glucose level is too high because the body isn't properly using or doesn't make the hormone insulin.
  3. Hypertension: Hypertension in diabetes is considered a major contributor to the increase in mortality from cardiovascular diseases. Diabetic patients, especially those with Type 2, need to always have their blood pressure checked every visit to the doctor. Self-monitoring at home is also a must to maintain and control the rise of blood pressure. The American Diabetes Association recommends a target blood pressure of not more than 130/85 mm Hg to maintain a good level of blood pressure.
  4. Smoking: Smoking has been determined dangerous to our health. Studies show that smoking indeed increase risk of premature death and cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients.

Being a diabetic it is not a complete healthcare if you focus only on your glucose levels. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder and all such ailments have their origin in the gut. How you will manage your diabetes depends on how well your gut health is. Eating the right food and mindful eating practices is essential. Visit a Naturopathy or doctor in functional foods who can guide you best on this. Alongside diabetic profile needs to be checked constantly to alert if risks have Set in. Physical inactivity needs to be addressed using yoga or any Fitness schedule.

My mom has a tumor in her uterus. I admitted her in ESI Joka hospital. All taste have completed but she has sugar so Dr. can't operation yet. Fasting sugar is around 136 and pp is 240 so Dr. give her insulin injections 3 time in a day. I am in great tension about giving her insulin injections. Everyone say that if one time start insulin then she will have to take insulin for life time. Please any Dr. suggest me that insulin is better for her or I should try other treatments for normal sugar.

Dear lybrate-user, Doctor usually start insulin to tackle crisis like trauma, surgery, or emergency caeserian delivery etc. Once that crisis is over, patient can be shifted to oral medicine. So do not worry she can be managed on oral medicine after the surgery. I wish for rapid recovery of your mother. All d best!

See as per your reports. The reports are not properly matching. You can go for a test in a better place ( reliable Laboratory) and also do HbA1c test. Which gives you a better understanding of the condition. Thanks
