Hello dear lybrate-user. First of all nightfalls can never make anyone. Including you weak or thin. There can be other reason for the thin body of yours. Main reason I see is your stress and frustration from the nightfalls. Well 4 to 5 nightfalls are like 4 to 5 times having sex per week. So you can not grow thin by this. Now. To stop nightfalls you have to start doing regual sex or masturbation can help. Eating high in protein food like cheeze and eggs can also help you a lot.

How can I control my diabetes I am taking insulin 20mg morning and 15mg at evening.
Mr. Lybrate-user, the way to control diabetes or blood sugar is through appropriate treatment as you are doing, plus taking a balanced but restricted diet tah meets your caloric needs exactly, based on your ideal body weight (ibw= height in cms - 100 x 0.9 kgs), extent of daily physical activity and blood sugar levels. A well controlled diabetes is reflected by fasting blood sugar level closer to 100mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%, 7. If you are in this range, then it excellent.

B) take 60 ml of AUDUMBARAVLEHA after meals. C) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping……Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result.

Just relax and take care of lifestyle to reduce the effects of arthritis. This is sometimes hereditary but not always so go ahead and begin to enjoy life, but plan and prepare well for quality marital/sexual life with proper guidance with sexologist.

Hye. Thanks for the query. Late night shifts affect not only weight but energy levels too. The odd timings are a stress on the body and if not managed right can lead to many lifestyle disorders. Avoid stimulants, such as caffeine and nicotine, before bedtime. If you're working nights and need to sleep from morning until afternoon, you might try to avoid caffeine after midnight. · To get uninterrupted sleep, when you do sleep. · Take a short nap before your shift. Napping for up to 30 minutes just before work or on a break may increase alertness and enhance your performance. · Stick to the routine. Go to sleep as soon as you can after work. · Avoid the use of sleep aids. Make healthy lifestyle choices: · Eat a healthy diet and include physical activity in your daily routine. · To maintain a nourishing diet, it’s vital to adjust your meal routine around your schedule. · If exercise seems to energize you, plan to work out after you wake up rather than before you go to sleep. · Resist the temptation to use tea, coffee, junk food or nicotine to stay awake or alcohol to get to sleep. · Do not skip meals. · To avoid taking in empty calories from vending machines or fast food, plan ahead. It is easy to eat to pass the time, but you’ll gain weight this way. Bring a healthy meal with you to work. · If your job is majorly desk-based, your metabolism may slow down during those long periods of inactivity, and you may find few opportunities for exercise. Use whatever free time you do have during the day for active pursuits. Set aside part of your lunchtime for some form of exercise. On other days of the week, try to do at least a 20-minute brisk walk. · If you work at your desk for most of the day and have a predictable work routine, you may become bored and use food as a diversion. Take regular breaks from sitting at your desk to stretch your muscles and refocus your eyes from the computer screen or paperwork. This will relieve boredom and distract you from cravings for unhealthy snacks. · Snacking often in between work is normally on junk or sweets which can quickly add calories. Try to stock up on healthy snacks, dairy, nuts etc. · Don’t eat a huge meal right at the end of your shift. It will just lead to trouble digesting as well as disrupted sleep. · Drink plenty of water throughout your shift. · Take foods rich in complex carbohydrates which provide energy over a long period of time rather than quick sugar bursts that won't last too long. · Include protein rich foods to help repair you’re worn out muscles. · It is important to avoid fatty and greasy food at night, and control the intake of spicy food. · Eat a big meal at the start of your work schedule, and a moderate meal around midnight. · Before going to bed in the morning, you can eat a regular breakfast meal in a small quantity.

If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, depression inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2. Avoid stress, physical and mental exertion, have adequate sound sleep for 7-8 hours daily in the night 3. Go for regular exercise 4. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control your emotion and relieve stress 5. Check for refractive error, sinusitis hemoglobin, bp 6. Avoid prolonged use of cell phone/computer 7. Consult neurologist to rule out other causes of headache, if required take a ct scan /mri of brain to exclude any brain lesion 8. If it is migraine you have to take migraine prophylactic drug after consulting neurologist 9. Consult me for further advice.

Hi there, I am very glad for your question. I appreciate that you got the courage to have your question answered on a public forum. Thought challenging in cognitive behavioral therapy Thought challenging—also known as cognitive restructuring—is a process in which you challenge the negative thinking patterns that contribute to your anxiety, replacing them with more positive, realistic thoughts. This involves three steps: Identifying your negative thoughts. With anxiety disorders, situations are perceived as more dangerous than they really are. To someone with a germ phobia, for example, shaking another person’s hand can seem life threatening. Although you may easily see that this is an irrational fear, identifying your own irrational, scary thoughts can be very difficult. One strategy is to ask yourself what you were thinking when you started feeling anxious. Your therapist will help you with this step. Challenging your negative thoughts. In the second step, your therapist will teach you how to evaluate your anxiety-provoking thoughts. This involves questioning the evidence for your frightening thoughts, analyzing unhelpful beliefs, and testing out the reality of negative predictions. Strategies for challenging negative thoughts include conducting experiments, weighing the pros and cons of worrying or avoiding the thing you fear, and determining the realistic chances that what you’re anxious about will actually happen. Replacing negative thoughts with realistic thoughts. Once you’ve identified the irrational predictions and negative distortions in your anxious thoughts, you can replace them with new thoughts that are more accurate and positive. Your therapist may also help you come up with realistic, calming statements you can say to yourself when you’re facing or anticipating a situation that normally sends your anxiety levels soaring. As you explore your anxiety disorder in therapy, you may also want to experiment with complementary therapies designed to bring your overall stress levels down and help you achieve emotional balance. Exercise – Exercise is a natural stress buster and anxiety reliever. Research shows that as little as 30 minutes of exercise three to five times a week can provide significant anxiety relief. To achieve the maximum benefit, aim for at least an hour of aerobic exercise on most days. Relaxation techniques – When practiced regularly, relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, controlled breathing, and visualization can reduce anxiety and increase feelings of relaxation and emotional well-being. Biofeedback – Using sensors that measure specific physiological functions—such as heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension—biofeedback teaches you to recognize the body’s anxiety response and learn how to control them using relaxation techniques. I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.

Hello, my wife is TB patient & he take a Two time DOTS . She fully curies for DOTS but he cough he has no go, cough is regularly for prev. 3 three year now this morning time he has very hard cough. Please advise me.

Thanks for your query. In your case first thing to rule out is the possibility of relapse of the TB. so get sputum test done. If it is negative then follow up chest xray will suggest any underlying abnormality. TB may cause its own sequelae in like bronchiectasis. Any yellowish sputum warrants antibiotic treatment or else inhaled brinchodilator will help.

My daughter age 8 months old with congenital heart defect, recently echocardiogram report says ostium secundum atrial septal defect sizes of 0.8mm diameter, left to right shunt. No feeding problem. Is it necessary for open heart surgery to close the hole now at these age?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello thanks for the query first of all I would like to know the exact size of atrial septal defect (asd. I think it should be 0.8 cm not 0.8 mm (as 0.8 mm asd will not cause any significant problem). The management depends on the following parameters 1) growth of the baby, 2) how frequent she is getting symptomatic 3) how severe are the symptoms 4) what is the exact hemodynamic finding in the echo (including pulmonary pressure) 8 mm asd considered to be large and chances of spontaneous closure is less. The weight and height you have mentioned is appropriate for age. Also I would like to know the margin of the defects. As on the basis of rims of the defect we can decide whether device closure can be done to avoid the open heart surgery. I request you to give detail history and to attach the echo report so that I better able to help you out. Regards.
