Calcium Defiency in women

Diet is a well balanced food combination which should be tailored according to personal needs and as circumstances changes specially. The wrong food can fail to nourish us, can keep us awake at night, make us sluggish and overweight or tense us up;

Major points to be kept in mind to plan our diet are:

Personal Needs.
Stages of our life.
Lifestyle.
Genetic and temperament conditions.
Clinical condition.
Personal needs are likes, dislikes and your time availability
Stages of our life we are in is very important as age plays a major role. So, supplement and manipulation of food group depends on our age.

There are many health problems those arise because of lifestyle we follow:

Posture-related problems.
Fatigue.
Mental health disorders, like depression and anxiety.
Obesity.
Heart disease.
High blood pressure.
Abnormal heart beats.
Menstrual problems.
Acne and other skin problems.

Common deficiencies noted in women are:

Calcium
Vitamins-D
Protein.
Phosphorus
Vegetarian and non - vegetarian diet have their unique role in maintaining bone mineral metabolism of body.

Calcium Deficiency in women makes entire matrix of the bone week, therefore keeping check of calcium in our diet can prevent women from osteoporosis in later ages after menopause. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, with over 99% of the amount present is being found in the bones and teeth. After the age of 35, both men and women start losing calcium from their bones. During menopause, however, the rate of loss increases rapidly for women. It also has a role to play in nerve function, blood clotting, muscle health, and other areas.

Source of calcium
Milk
Paneer
Almonds
Seeds-sesame ,sunflower , cheese
Soya bean and their products
Learn to combine calcium rich food for proper absorption, food contain oxalic acid prevent ca absorption like spinach and lotus stem.

Sources of protein: like fish, meat, Poultry, eggs are also important.
Source of vitamin-D: Vitamin D can be obtained from sun exposure, food like eggs, mushrooms, orange and fish.
Source of Phosphorus: Phosphorus is found in high amounts in protein rich foods such as milk and milk products and meat and alternatives, such as beans, lentils, nuts, Sunflower Seeds and Broccoli.
Common menstrual problems faced by women are cramps, pcod, menorrhagia, and amenorrhea.

Certain foods like caffeine, alcohol, caffeinated tea and high salt diets increases intensity of cramps. Include 'Ca' rich foods like broccoli, low fat yoghurt, high fiber diets and omega-3 rich foods to help you during your menstrual cycle.

Working women should Try to include energy booster snacks like nuts for mid meals and plan carbohydrate rich diets with more of complex carbs in form of roasted grains and cereals bars. Keeping a check on amount of water intake is also very important. Replace caffeinated drinks with herbal infusion and buttermilk for detoxification of the body.

Ultimately we have to overcome the fatigue, lethargy and all the clinical condition by planning our meals and having a well balanced diet for a healthy body.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Protected gay sex is safe. Gay sex is never advisable just because it is not a conventional one and human are not designed to engage in gay sex. Human do it for the sexual pleasure associated with it. Just like smoking or alcohol consumption. I suggest not to engage in gay sex. Take care.

Drinking the cum does not cause any harm and it gets metabolised immediately without any complications. Oral sex is very safe king of sexual activity so no one is harmed.

2 times IVF done. Do you know what's the success rate of IVF- it's around 30% per cycle. So, most likely you are not having success by chance factor alone. Don't give up hope. Talk to your doctor to review the reports of both of you and start treatment.

No need to worry it is fine, as small amount of semen contains millions of sperm in it, so even if most of it drains out of vagina it is fine. Secondly as advised by doctor start doing regular exercise for weight loss and take dietary measures as well.

Best time to get pregnant is from 10th to 16th day of menstrual cycle if your cycle is regular. You also have to care for some extra precautions to get pregnant earlier.

Please Tell me what is do and not do in the pregnancy's first 3 month and which diet is taken in these months.

Please  Tell me what is do and not do in the pregnancy's first 3 month and which diet is taken in these months.
The first trimester of your pregnancy is the most important phase. During this phase your body undergoes various physiological and psychological changes and your baby’s major organ developments also happen simultaneously. You need to exercise certain precautions during the first trimester to avoid any serious health complications. What you do during the initial three months defines the health and wellness of your baby and that of yours too. Here are things that you should do during this trimester to ensure a smooth ride ahead. Things to do during your first trimester: • Get your required number of calories from all food groups, not just fat! Include variety of foods in the diet like whole grains, pulses, legumes and nuts. Meat, poultry, eggs and fish also provide protein. Make sure you get your calcium from milk or other food. Take 600 ml of milk or milk products every day for the calcium content. Eating during pregnancy • Get your dose of vitamin D through food like egg yolks, tuna, salmon, fortified milk, fish liver oil, or through exposure to sunlight. • Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids. They are necessary for the development of your baby’s brain, nerve and eye. • Take iron and folic acid supplements as prescribed by your doctor. It is important during the pre-conception and early pregnancy phase because this is when the foetus develops spine and nerve cells. • Eat frequent, smaller meals. The baby needs to be fed constantly so eat every two to three hours. • Gain weight gradually. For the optimal growth of your baby you should gain around 0.5- 2 kg in the first trimester. Get some exercise. Regular gentle exercise can help ease or prevent back pain, boost your energy, build stamina and help you prepare for the physical changes of labour and delivery. • Don’t miss your visits to the doctor. Your prenatal check-ups are your window into the womb and they help detect any issues early and can be corrected in most cases. • Increase your fluid intake. Blood volume needs to increase during pregnancy to facilitate oxygen and nutrient delivery to both you and your baby. • Get lots of sleep. Hormonal changes also make you feel worn out. So make it a point to get few naps whenever possible. • Cut down on caffeine. Large amounts of caffeine consumption and an increased risk of miscarriage have been linked in some studies. Things to avoid on your first trimester • Don’t take any medication unless necessary. Medicines taken by you can cross the placenta and enter the bloodstream of your baby. Hence it’s best to know the safety of any medications you’re taking during pregnancy – especially in the first trimester. • Don’t be too adventurous with food. Foods to be avoided during pregnancy include raw/undercooked meat, soft cheese, seafood and raw eggs. They could be possible sources of harmful bacteria and parasite. Reduce your exposure to environmental pollutants. According to a study, women exposed to elevated levels of ozone air pollution (smog) in the first three months of pregnancy may be at increased risk for complications such as preeclampsia and premature birth. • Quit smoking. Passive and active smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of health and behavioural problems in the baby and is linked to infant mortality. • Don’t drink alcohol. Alcohol can cross the placenta and reach your baby’s bloodstream. Excessive drinking impairs the mental and physical development of your baby, in what is known as foetal alcohol syndrome. Don’t get stressed, depressed. High levels of stress can affect the unborn baby’s health and increase your chances of miscarriage. • Don’t go on diet while you’re pregnant. You may end up with deficiency of iron, folic acid, vitamins and minerals which can potentially harm you and your baby. • Don’t use hot tubs/ sauna. They can raise your core body temperature which can cause dehydration and threaten the developing baby.

Dear lybrate user, if the loose motions are not much, she otherwise feels alright and there is no fever it is best to take ors (oral rehydration solution) or lemon juice with salt, sugar and pinch of baking soda. Consult doctor if the intensity is more and/ or there are other associated symptoms.

The commonest cause for such presentation is pulmonary tuberculosis ie tb of chest although rarely other causes can also be there. The fluid needs to be aspirated and tested for afb (ie tb bacteria examination under microscope), gram staining (ie looking for other bacteria), biochemical evaluation and culture. Also sputum examination (x 3) and repeat chest x-ray after aspiration should be done. Proper complete treatment alongwith good nutrition and breathing exercises can result in a cure.

Gynaecomastia is normal sometimes in puberty,but persistence of abnormal breast tissue in adult male can be due to a lot of clinical conditions klienfelter syndrome,lymphomas,luekemias,estrogen excess,and side effects of drugs like digitalis,inh,spiranolactone,cimetidine,ranitidine,oestrogens.You need examination by doctors and rule out any pathology,if everything is normal then liposuction can give excellent results.I have treated many patients successfully. www.plasticsurgeryindia.net
