Please advice if I will do ivi so it can possible with thyroid and reports are normals.
lybrate-user, If thyroid reports are normal, and if TSH levels are <2 mU/L, then you can go ahead. Plus through out the three trimester TSH should be maintained around the same level. Thanks.

I am an engineering student in VIT university. My basic problem is I am on more weight than it has to be for my height. I can reduce it by doing exercises or anything but the problem is I am thin on the upper part and fatty on the bottom. I hope you got me. Also my hip was somewhat wide but that was from my mother genes. So with this I looked like very thin feature from face, neck,hands, abdomen and from there it looks like an unmatched one. Is there any solution that I could get out of this because it does not look good when I wear series for any functions. Please do tell me.

shed weight the healthy way minus diet harts or rigid exercise plans. give up sugars and take less carbs like wheat/rice/bread/maida. reduce salt to minimum but you can sprinkle some spices on salads. boiled eggs/ roasted chane/ nuts are filling an d good source of proteins and healthy fats. eat as much as you like and can digest- seasonal fruits and vegetables one meal a day during evening only-roti-daal-subji-rice. no munching. walking is simple exercise cum meditation. swimming is good if facility available. get back after a month. since you are in a professional college and you have to study lots , do not do extra dieting /exercise.

Why are you waiting till left side showing 23 mm? it may be something different. So, if you want you can take hcg now but at this cycle, chance is low.

My married friend was planning a baby. Thus month she had the feeling that she has conceived as there were symptoms including vomiting, spotting etc. She was waiting for her periods to be missed to do home pregnancy test to be sure if it. But yesterday night she fell, had immediate periods with heavy unusual bleeding. Is it a possible miscarriage? Does she need to consult a doctor immediately, I mean if it's miscarriage can it be dangerous for her body if unattended?

Dear lybrate-user, if she did not miss her periods, chances of a pregnancy and miscarriage are extremely less. If she is having unusual bleeding or pain, she should anyway consult her gyne for check up. There are other things apart from pregnancy that need to be checked.

Dear Lybrate user, please be carefu in case of lower back pain and lower abdoinal pain, avoid contact in early months, also do not do heavy work. Please take supplements after discussing with gynaecologist. Avoid any type of pain killers and self medications.

I was wrongly advised to take ROSVAS 50 mg for 1 month. I was hospitalized for 10 days due to decline of WBC, PLATELETS & HAEMOGLOBIN. I was discharged 1 month back. But still there is fluctuation in the counts like sudden fall of platelets, from 3, 48, 000 to 1, 18, 000. In the long run will I face any major or minor problems?

Panchkarma — antidote to lifestyle diseases

If years of allopathic treatment has not brought relief from diseases like joint pains, skin problems, anxiety and gastro-intestinal ailments, try panchkarma, an ayurvedic therapy which purifies and rejuvenates the body. Hundreds of such patients suffering from lifestyle diseases like stress or metabolic disorders like arthritis, have got relief through panchkarma.

The patients coming to us are of all age groups (16 years to 80 years)and have sought relief & cure in panchkarma after years of unsuccessful allopathic treatment.
“Panchkarma has been found to be very effective in insomnia, joint pains, gout, diabetes, anxiety, migraine, sinusitis and gastro-intestinal ailments,” . Today's most common problems like slip disc, arthritis, joint pains and anxiety are a result of stressful living.

Interestingly, it is allopathic doctors themselves who are recommending panchkarma to majority of these patients. “The primary cause of all these problems is anxiety and it is through meditation, yoga and panchkarma that enables you to work without getting stressed

Tips to Deal With Celiac Disease in Children

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Tips to Deal With Celiac Disease in Children

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease caused due to intolerance to the protein called gluten found in common foods like wheat, barley, and rye. The exact reason for the disease is not known, but gluten attacks the small finger-like projections in the intestine called the villi, which help absorb nutrients during the digestion, leading to malnourishment.

Onset of the disease is usually once the child has started on solid foods and can include diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, underweight, skin rashes, anemia, mouth sores, etc. Diagnosis usually happens with a detailed discussion and checking the level of antibodies against gluten in the blood. In rare cases, an intestinal biopsy may also be required. Once confirmed, the following are ways to manage celiac disease.

Dietary changes: Avoiding gluten-containing foods is the first step to treating celiac disease. These are common food substances like wheat and barley. In some cases, the entire family may choose to or need to take this diet, just to provide moral support to the child.

  1. Breads, cakes (made from wheat)
  2. Creamed or breaded vegetables
  3. Processed meats
  4. Dry roasted nuts (as agents used in processing could have wheat)
  5. Fried chicken
  6. Pastas
  7. French fries (that are coated in flour)
  8. Spreads, soft cheeses, and dips
  9. Salad dressings
  10. Gravies and sauces (including some tomato and meat sauces)
  11. Soup mixes and canned soups
  12. Crab or other seafood
  13. Malt or malt-flavored drinks (usually made from barley)
  14. Modified food starch (modified corn starch is OK; modified wheat starch is not)
  15. Nondairy creamer
  16. Soy sauce and soy sauce solids (may be fermented with wheat)
  17. Wheat-free products (may contain barley or rye flour)
  18. Yogurts containing wheat starch

Read the labels of foods to ensure they are free of gluten. Organic/natural food stores and health food stores contain wide range of gluten-free products that can be used with minimal effect on the child's food habits.

Eating out: Just because the child has celiac disease, eating out is not ruled out. Carefully choosing what to eat is suggested. Also, letting the chef know is a good idea, as most chefs will prepare something safer for the child.

Cross-contamination: Avoid cross-contamination: In schools or in cases where the child could potentially eat from other children's boxes, make sure the child is well informed and ensure he does not eat from other kids' lunch boxes. It is also a good idea to keep the class teacher and a couple of his close friends informed of the child's condition.

Most children are easy to educate and adapt well to the changes required, knowing very well that it is for their own good.

In anxious women some sedatives like i/v calmpose injections are given or a short anesthesia. The test is not painful, rather an awake woman tells us about shoulder pain when dye is injected (good positive sign) but we take no chances as an anxious woman can move while doing the test. It takes less than 5 minutes to inject the dye through mouth of uterus with the help of a tiny but special pipe & radiologist clicks pictures from abdomen to see the dribbling dye if tubes are open. Good luck.
