If your periods are regular still now and got skipped this month then there is a suspicion that you might be pregnant please have it checked through home done spot test with ICAN and for confirmation undergo urine for HCG test. If you have irregular periods even before then this might be due to hormonal supplement which is effecting your cycle.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome - How It Can Be Diagnosed?

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome - How It Can Be Diagnosed?

Acute respiratory distress syndrome also known as ARDS is the condition when the lungs fail to pump sufficient oxygen to vital organs such as the brain and kidneys. This happens due to fluid collecting in the lungs which reduces its capacity to function. If ADRS is not diagnosed and treated in time, it can lead to death.

Causes and Symptoms
While it has been proved that the leakage of fluids from some of the minor blood vessels can enter the lungs causing ARDS, there is still no clarity on what triggers this leakage or how such fluid enters the lungs. It has been observed that patients already admitted and undergoing treatments in a hospital have been diagnosed with the ARDS condition. This indicates that the condition could be brought about by an injury caused during an accident or due to a health condition. The predominant symptom of ARDS is the loss of breath which could be severe in some cases. The other symptoms include a blue tinge to the lips and nails caused be the reduced supply of oxygen.

Diagnosis
There is no single test to diagnose acute respiratory distress syndrome. Doctors will use a combination of results from chest rays and the analysis of blood samples to confirm the diagnosis of this condition. In some cases, a CT scan may also be ordered. A physical examination and checking the medical history of the patient is mandatory and is included in the diagnostic process for ARDS.

Treatment
Once diagnosed, the patient will be immediately put on external oxygen support. If a simple air mask is not enough then a breathing tube may be used to ensure sufficient oxygen reaches all parts of the body. The patient might also be put on a ventilator. Oral medications to help stop the bleeding and prevent clotting of blood will be prescribed. Medications could also be administered through the use of IV fluids. It is necessary for patients with this condition to remain calm. In an agitated or excitable state the demand for oxygen is greater. Doctors might therefore, prescribe medications to ensure patients remain calm.

Recovery and After
As mentioned earlier, there is a crucial need to diagnose acute respiratory distress syndrome in time to ensure a quick start to the treatment available. This condition can be brought under control and the person can lead a normal life. Doctors will advise patients to quit smoking and to reduce or limit the intake of alcohol. Taking a flu shot, periodically, to protect against diseases such as pneumonia will also be beneficial to patients with ARDS+.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Health Benefits of Watermelon

MD - General Medicine

Health Benefits of Watermelon

Health Benefits of Watermelon

Watermelon is by far, one of the most powerful, body-healing fruits out there! The amazing health benefits of watermelon cover everything from your brain all the way to the cells in your feet. Some of the best watermelon I've had was from Costa Rica. The fruit there is incredible, and watermelon tasted about 80% better than the stuff you buy in stores in North America. Plus, they all contained seeds, which means none of them were GMO, hybrid, or tainted in any respect. If you want to eat some tasty fruit with me down there at the Live Love Fruit Rawjuvenation Retreat, you won't be disappointed. Raw foods, unlimited fruit and vegetables, fresh cracked coconut water, yoga, eco-adventures and so much more! The best time to indulge in this fresh, succulent, juicy melon, is summertime, when they are in season and deliver an array of nutrients, vitamin and minerals.

Watermelon is incredibly hydrating (up to 92% water!) and is naturally low-fat. Make this melon a part of your daily diet and you will reap amazing benefits that range from improving cardiovascular health to nourishing your eyes and revving up your immune system! Read below and see for yourself! Cardiovascular and Bone Health The lycopene in watermelon is especially important for our cardiovascular health and is now being recognized as an important factor in promoting bone health. Consuming large amounts of watermelon has also been correlated with improved cardiovascular function because it improves blood flow via vasodilation (relaxation of blood pressure). Dietary lycopene (from foods like watermelon or tomatoes) reduces oxidative stress which normally reduces the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts (the two major bone cells involved in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis) - this means stronger bones for those consuming lycopene-rich foods. Watermelon is also rich in potassium which helps to retain calcium in your body, resulting in stronger bones and joints. Reduces Body Fat The citrulline in watermelon has been shown to reduce the accumulation of fat in our fat cells. Citrulline is an amino acid which converts into arginine with help from the kidneys. When our bodies absorb citrulline it can take the step of converting into arginine if so required. Citrulline, when consumed, has the ability to (through a series of steps) block the activity of TNAP (tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase) which makes our fat cells create less fat, and thus helps prevent over-accumulation of body fat. Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Support Watermelon is rich in phenolic compounds like flavonoids, carotenoids, and triterpenoids. The carotenoid lycopene in watermelon is particularly beneficial in reducing inflammation and neutralizing free radicals. The triterpenoid cucurbitacin E is also present in watermelon, which provides anti-inflammatory support by blocking activity of cyclo-oxygenase enzymes which normally lead to increased inflammatory support. Make sure you pick ripe watermelons, because they contain higher amounts of these beneficial phenolic compounds.

Alcohol will not affect the preg if you have conceived. However habitual drinking alters semen values and reduces chances of conception.

Periods Problem in Hindi - पीरियड संबंधी समस्याएं

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Periods Problem in Hindi - पीरियड संबंधी समस्याएं

मासिक धर्म, लड़कियों के बड़े होना का एक हिस्सा है। पीरियड आमतौर पर लगभग उसी समय के आसपास शुरू होते हैं, जब शरीर के साथ अन्य परिवर्तन, जैसे कि स्तनों को या जघन बाल विकसित करना, होते हैं। मासिक धर्म शुरू करने की औसत आयु 13 साल है, लेकिन 9 साल से 15 साल की उम्र के बीच किसी भी समय शुरू करना सामान्य है। पीरियड्स रजोनिवृत्ति तक चलते हैं, जो आम तौर पर 50 वर्ष की आयु के आसपास होती है। औसत मासिक धर्म चक्र 28 दिनों का होता है।

मासिक धर्म आपके गर्भाशय के अस्तर का मासिक निस्राव है, जिसके दौरान शरीर से रक्त और ऊतक निकाले जाते हैं। रक्त स्राव पांच दिनों की औसत तक रह सकता है। हालांकि, हर महिला के लिए एक साधारण मासिक चक्र अलग होता है। इसलिए, आपके पीरियड्स में बदलावों पर ध्यान देना महत्वपूर्ण है। 

पीरियड संबंधी समस्याएं
विभिन्न प्रकार की मासिक धर्म समस्याएं होती हैं, जिसमें शामिल है:

1. प्रागार्तव:
जिससे प्री - मेंस्रूअल टेंशन (पी.एम.टी) भी कहा जाता है, यह मासिक धर्म चक्र से जुड़े शारीरिक, मानसिक और भावनात्मक लक्षणों का एक संग्रह है। लक्षण और उनकी तीव्रता भिन्न हो सकती है। यहाँ तक की, सभी महिलाओं को पी.एम.एस का अनुभव नहीं होता है। इसके आम लक्षण हैं:

  1. सूजन
  2. चिड़चिड़ापन
  3. पीठदर्द
  4. सिर दर्द
  5. स्तन वेदना
  6. मुँहासे
  7. भोजन की इच्छा
  8. अत्यधिक थकान
  9. अवसाद
  10. चिंता
  11. तनाव की भावनाएं
  12. अनिद्रा
  13. कब्ज
  14. दस्त
  15. पेट में हल्के ऐंठन

पी.एम.एस आपके पीरियड शुरू होने से दो सप्ताह पहले होता है। 

2. भारी पीरियड्स:
इसे मेनोरेजिअ या अत्यार्तव भी कहा जाता है। मेनोरेजिअ ज्यादातर हार्मोन के स्तरों में असंतुलन के कारण होता है:

  1. कुछ दवाओं का उपयोग
  2. योनि संक्रमण
  3. गर्भाशय ग्रीवा की सूजन
  4. अंडरएक्टिव थायरॉयड ग्रंथि (हाइपोथायरायडिज्म)
  5. गैर कैंसरयुक्त गर्भाशय ट्यूमर (फाइब्रॉएड)
  6. आहार या व्यायाम में परिवर्तन

3 पीरियड ना आना (रजोरोध):
यदि एक महिला ने 16 वर्ष की आयु तक भी मासिक धर्म की शुरूआत नहीं की है, तो उसे प्राथमिक रजोरोध है। 
यह पीयूष ग्रंथि की एक समस्या, मादा प्रजनन तंत्र के एक जन्मजात दोष, या यौवन में देरी के कारण हो सकता है। अगर एक महिला छह महीनों या उससे अधिक समय तक पीरियड का अनुभव ना करे, तो इसे माध्यमिक अमानोरिया कहा जाता है। इसके कुछ सामान्य कारण हैं:

  1. समयपूर्व डिम्बग्रंथि विफलता
  2. श्रोणि सूजन की बीमारी (एक प्रजनन संक्रमण)
  3. जन्म नियंत्रण रोकना
  4. गर्भावस्था
  5. स्तनपान
  6. रजोनिवृत्ति

4. दर्दनाक पीरियड (कष्टार्तव):

पी.एम.एस के दौरान ऐंठन सामान्य है। आम तौर पर असुविधा हल्का होती है और यह एक या दो दिन में कम हो जाती है। लेकिन कुछ महिलाएं इतनी अत्यधिक दर्द महसूस करती हैं कि वे बिस्तर से बाहर तक नहीं निकल पाती। इसके साथ मतली, उल्टी, सिरदर्द या दस्त आदि भी हो सकते है। दर्द फाइब्रॉएड, एंडोमेट्रियोसिस (अन्तर्गर्भाशय - अस्थानता) या पैल्विक सूजन रोग के कारण हो सकता है। व्यायाम दर्द को दूर करने में मदद कर सकता है। बिना पर्ची के दर्द निवारक, जैसे कि पेरासिटामोल या इबुप्रोफेन, भी काम करते हैं। 

5. बेक़ायदा पीरियड्स:

एक पीरियड सामान्य रूप से दो से सात दिन तक होता है, औसत पीरियड पांच दिन लंबा होता है। अनियमित पीरियड्स आना युवावस्था के दौरान और रजोनिवृत्ति से ठीक पहले सामान्य हो सकता है। पॉलीसिस्टिक अंडाशय सिंड्रोम (पी.सी.ओ.एस) पीरियड में अनियमितता पैदा कर सकता है। हार्मोनल असंतुलन या गर्भनिरोधक बदलने से भी बेक़ायदा पीरियड्स हो सकते हैं।
