Is Anxiety And stress some how increases blood sugar level even if a person is not suffering diabetics?
Anxiety and stress can have an impact on your insulin levels, achyut as when you are stressed your body is trying to metabolise the food faster to provide the body with the energy quicker. This can lead to disbetes like symptoms. It is best to address stress-causing factors in your life at the earliest and to readjust your diet and exercise regimen. Also get a full body check up done once every year. If you haven't done on e this year now might be a good time to do it. Good luck.

I usually distract whenever I do the study. I can't concentrate on study. Why? Please give solution as much as possible.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Easy distraction is due to poor attention span and poor concentration levels. You can increase that by adopting simple techniques. Divide your study topic into small related parts, study in breaks, relax after 30-45 min of study, try to recollect that you have gone through every 30 min in short and then only begin another topic. Always correlate things that you have studied. Donot study unrelated topics on same day. If you still ding difficulty in maintaining concentration and attention start medicines with my advice.

I am 28 year female. I have been in relationship with a guy for 3years I got pregnant 2times mistakenly. Last I used tablets misoprost. I used as per instructions but I was 4-5months pregnant already baby was abort but some clumps and wastage was stuck which took me to hospital for internal wash. Now it's almost last year August thing but still I'm in emotional trauma. I M living alone. I felt bad about baby. I regret and I feel suicidal sometime. I need medical help to come out of this. I lost my baby. even after this. Because I was blaming him for all this happened.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
It is normal to feel greef. After what you have gone through. In your emotional moment you may blame your partner and inam sure you know that it is not just him. It was both of you. What happend happend and now it is past. We can't do anything about what is gone. What lies ahead is your future. How would you now want to move ahead. Focus on your plan for your future. Always remember that you are in charge of your life. Many times we get influenced by stories and movies and keep building our emotions around them. Think about the other circumstances as well. What would have happend if you had a baby. Are you ready to deal with all that would have come with it? you might be depressed thinking and feeling other things. Always remember that your life and your happiness is your choice. Focus on how to build happy and fulfilling life ahead. Start doing some kind of physical exercise do 30 to 40 minutes 4to 5 times in a week. Doing mindfulness meditation for 10 minutes to begin with would help you build resilience that will help you manage your stress in a much better way. Engage yourself in some activities yiu engage and focus more on building tomorrow than feeling guilty about yesterday. If you feel. That you need initial support to stop negative thought chain and begin positive change in your life feel free to contact me. As a psychologist I will work with you and provide you that initial support system till you once again become confident and independent. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Stage fear happens to everyone, even those accustomed to public speaking. One of the ways to overcome it is to rehearse whatever you are going to talk about. Try rehearsing in front of the mirror. You will become aware of your body language and expressions, and will learn how to improve on them. Frequent rehearsals before any event will help you. Other than that, free yourself from the burden of other people's opinions. Not everyone has the courage to get up on stage and speak, but anyone can sit in audience and mock the speaker. Be indifferent to other's criticism, and only focus on improving yourself. If anxiety is overwhelming and you find yourself feeling low even things are going well, consult a psychiatrist. Medication can be prescribed to help with that. Also try some deep breathing techniques, especially before going on stage. Other than all this, indulge in some enjoyable activity and exercise everyday. You can consult me further, if required.

Hi, I am a women of 29 years. I have not completed a year of my marriage. It is a love marriage after ten years of courtship. Though, my partner did not want to marry me as he got bored with me. He does not take care of me, but often he suddenly takes care. Though, it is very few. I want love and care from my husband. He never understands me and always stay busy in himself. Day by day I am getting depressed and sometime I think to suicide. But only for my parent I cannot take this step. If I am living then I want to be happy. I don't know what to do? Even sometime I hate myself and I do not see my face in mirror. I think I am headache for all. I want to live happy and make everyone happy including my husband. But I am unable. Day by day my confident is reaching the bottom. I am MA in English, but my husband always humiliates me and says that I am good for nothing. It hurts me very much, he never feels me and always treats me as a maid servant. Even he says that I am inferior to his pet dog. I cannot take this all this, but want to give chance to my marriage. I feel less energetic all the time and neglected too. Please say me what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
For such a long courtship, this can often be the result. Within a year of courtship marriage should have been initiated. There may be very many reasons for that I am sure and not all of them are good. Now that you are getting treated in this manner is something you should never allow anyone do so. And you should never die for any man unless you were in the process of saving him. You are fortunately an educated girl and with some street smartness you can at least get something done. When he is nice to you, grab him and go for marriage counseling. Be firm with him at other times, even if you want his love. He is treating you with abuse and disdain. You have become so disdainful of yourself because of his treatment that you have become your own worst enemy. You sound like someone with a serious rejection issue. You have to love yourself and take good care of yourself if you want him to love you. Not committing suicide for your parents sake is not the best of reasons: you need to love yourself so much that you will never do that to yourself, ever. So when you have exhausted all the chances for this marriage to work, then you can even call it off. Do not stay in a continuing relationship of abuse.

EMPOWERING YOURSELF - YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO BE SAD

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
EMPOWERING YOURSELF - YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO BE SAD
1. Avoid thinking about the people who has hurt you

Another person’s hurting words and actions can certainly trigger sad thinking and feelings but remember over thinking on those words will lead you nowhere. Putting your energy to think another people’s actions and behaviour, on which you have no control, can lead you in a state of sadness, self-compassion and hopelessness. Psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo suggests on such conditions when another person hurts you, remember yourself that you have no control on another person’s actions and mindset, be it good or bad. So don’t waste your time or energy thinking about the incident. Instead of that, focus on inner conversations, self-analysis and put efforts to improvise things in your life and its goals.

2. Embrace optimism in your life:

Often when people get hurt they explain things to themselves in a pessimistic way. AVOID that. Remember very often pessimistic thinking approach leads to self-isolation, depression and withdrawal. What is required rather - being optimistic, try to adopt a way of thinking like, “the person talked to me roughly, did I wrongly intervene in his/her personal space? , I should take care of this next time”, or “something might not be right at that person’s end and his/her rough behaviour is an outcome of that situation”. Such kind of thinking style will always help you to become a better observer of life and will improve your interpersonal skill and the way you handle yourself.


3. Friends and relatives VS Telephones Mobiles and computers

Sitting in front of TV, Mobile and laptop screen for hours reduces brain stimulation. Remember humans are designed to do whole body movement, to move our muscles that stimulate our cerebellum, which in turn stimulates our cortex. So tell yourself if you want to be happy in life, then choose family outings, relative visits, friend gatherings, exercises over TV, mobile and PC.

Hello. I am recommending you medicines, but you need to take this medicine regularly for 15days and make sure that you will be giving me feedback of the treatment positively after that. Homoeopathic medicines (Schwabe's) - Ignatia 30/ daily in the morning. Kali Phos. 6X/ one dose at night daily. And don't bother about others, people need some spicy topics to gossip all the time. It's your life, live it your way and let other people live their own life. They are just around you to discourage you and your confidence level! They are happy to see others sad. They wouldn't be there in need of time, so be with those people who boost up your confidecne, makes you happy and gives you positive vibes!!

Humans are not born with perfect bodies. Most gain or lose more weight than they intended. Some people feel full even after only eating half of the food on their plates. You can't gain weight if you don't have more healthy food inside of you. Eating more healthy food is essential to gaining weight. You cannot achieve your ideal weight by eating little. Here are some tips on how you can eat more food without feeling full: eat slowly some people chew and swallow their way into their plate in just minutes. You need to take it slow since eating faster will only make you feel fuller right away. Eating fast also causes you to overeat. Eat gluten-free food for weight watchers gluten is a kind of protein usually found in some grains, cereals and wheat. In food production, gluten is added to keep the elasticity of food, making bread more chewable. The presence of gluten also keeps other types of food from having a doughy texture. If you choose to be on a gluten-free diet, you will be actually keeping unhealthy food away from your body. Being on a gluten-free diet means steering clear of sugary sweet desserts and fried food. Processed food also contains gluten including artificial flavoring. Eliminating processed food from your diet will let you focus more on protein-rich food to help you gain weight. A gluten-free diet means eating more fruits and vegetables. These are non-starchy foods so eating them will take you a longer time to get full. Gluten-free grains are usually low in fiber. You can also eat more without feeling so full afterwards. Eating eating frequent small meals a day keeps you from overeating. Photo credit: venus buzz have frequent meals eating small meals a day instead of the regular 3 meals can help you eat more to gain weight. In order to put more meat into a skinny frame, you need to eat as much food as you can the healthy way. You can't do this if you feel full right away. To help you eat more without getting full, start eating small meals in a day. If you spread out your calorie-intake in certain times of a day, you can get more inside your stomach without feeling sick. Eat calorie-rich foods in your small meals. Don't eat junk food in between these meals since you increase your chances of being full without getting any calories. Learn the right serving size if there are 3 or more kinds of food on your table, you can eat all of them without feeling full. The secret is to portion each of the food so you can eat more. A serving of meat doesn't mean a whole slab of steak. You can cut and slice the meat into smaller portions. If there are vegetables, do not go overboard by getting a large bowl. You can enjoy eating more food if you take them in small portions throughout the day rather than in one sitting. Do cardio exercises working out before a meal will always make you hungry for food after. You can build a light sweat before a planned meal by doing cardio exercises. Not only is this good for keeping your heart healthy, exercising also lets you enjoy more food during a meal. An intense workout will stimulate your appetite for food since the body loses energy during exercise. If you are trying to gain weight, this is the time to eat calorie-dense foods. You'll be packing away the calories in no time. Avoid eating mashed potatoes mashed potatoes are fatty foods. The more fat is in the food, the longer time it will take to break it down and prepare it for digestion. If the breakdown of food inside your stomach is slow, the faster you will run out of space for more food. If you still want to eat more servings of food, it's better to avoid the fattiest food on your plate. Save drinks for last some people believe in drinking a glass of water in between courses to clamp down on food in your stomach. You should know this is only a myth. Drinking water or any kind of beverage during a meal will only make you feel fuller. You can actually feel full just by drinking liquids and eating a little amount of food. If you want to eat and enjoy more of your food, you can save the drinks until you have eaten your last bite. I hope this helps.

Respected Sir, I am Sudip Goswami from West Bengal. My father suffering with Parkinson's disease from last 3 years. We had visited several hospital india including NIMHANS, AOPLLO (Chennai, Bangur (W. B) Now please suggest me the way to recover from this situation. Also suggest me the best treatment for P. D in india.

Dear friend, unfortunate to know your father suffering from parkinson's disease. It is a disease of brain in which brain cells in particular area of brain degenerate spontaneously so the patient develop problems in body movement like tremor, shaking of limbs and walking difficulty and movement become slow and body became stiff. There is no treatment to permanently cure the disease or stop the disease till now. But patients symptoms can be controlled by medication for a significant years. But he will be symptom free as long as he uses the medication, when he stops the medicine symptoms will reappear. Some centers doing stem cell therapy for parkinson's disease, but it is in experimental stage. Depending on patient's response to symptomatic therapy, a brain surgery is done called bds in which patient may get symptomatic relief without medication for many years. But it is available in selected centres, costly, helpful in some specific parkinson patients.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, many people become forgetful as they become older. This is common and is often not due to dementia. There are also other disorders such as depression and an underactive thyroid that can cause memory problems. Dementia is the most serious form of memory problem. It causes a loss of mental ability, and other symptoms. Dementia can be caused by various disorders which affect parts of the brain involved with thought processes. Most cases are caused by alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, or dementia with lewy bodies. Symptoms of dementia develop gradually and typically become worse over a number of years. The most important part of treatment for dementia is good-quality support and care for the person with dementia and for their carers. In some cases, treatment with medicines may be helpful. Please consult a physician first.

Attachment Disorder - 8 Risks Associated With It

M.D Psychiatry , DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Attachment Disorder - 8 Risks Associated With It

While most children share a strong bond with their parents, especially the mother, some infants are unable to establish lasting relationships with their parents or caregivers. This is known as attachment disorder. It is a rare yet serious condition as it affects the child’s relationships at a later stage and also triggers delinquent behavior. Children, who have been abandoned, orphaned or are victims of abuse are the most vulnerable to this condition.

What causes attachment disorder?
The exact cause for attachment disorder is not yet understood. However, researchers have put together a number of viable hypotheses for this. One such hypothesis suggests that when needs of a child are ignored or when he begins to feel unwanted, the child begins to expect hostility, negativity and rejection. This is a learnt response and the child begins to feel that his needs are unwanted. With time, these responses make the child untrusting and he withdraws into himself to avoid social contact. This affects the development in the brain and causes attachment problems that affect the child’s personality and future relationships.

Risks associated with it
Some children are at a higher risk of attachment disorder than others. This includes

  1. Children living in orphanages or other such institutes
  2. Children whose caregivers are changed frequently
  3. Children who have had prolonged hospitalization
  4. Neglected children
  5. Children who have suffered from physical, sexual or verbal abuse
  6. Children living in extreme poverty
  7. Children born to parents with mental conditions or anger management problems
  8. Children born to a mother suffering from post partum depression

Symptoms
There are two types of attachment disorders; inhibited and disinhibited.

  1. Inhibited attachment disorder: Children suffering from inhibited attachment disorder are likely to be:
    • Detached
    • Withdrawn
    • Unresponsive to comforting ie. they shun all types of relationships and generally do not get along with their peers or caregivers.
  2. Disinhibited attachment disorder: On the other hand, children suffering from disinhibited attachment are likely to:
    • Seek attention
    • Display inappropriate behavior
    • Frequently break social boundaries
    • Be inappropriately familial and attached to selective figures.

Additionally, children suffering from either type of attachment disorder are manipulative, destructive, moody and lack compassion and remorse.
Effects of attachment disorder
If not managed properly in its early stages, this disorder can continue into adulthood. This leads to:

  1. Relationship problems with peers, friends and family members
  2. Low self esteem
  3. Depression
  4. Anger management
  5. Academic problems
  6. Unemployment
  7. They are also at a high risk for drug abuse and alcohol addiction 

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

I am 25 years old, I am getting angry very soon and also frustrated. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. The right thing to do however, is to find out why you are angry and whether it stems from some recent event or has it got roots way back from your past. In either case it would do good to meet with a counselor and deal with it effectively in therapy.

When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. You can also hand over the feeling to god, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too.
