General Physician,
My baby was born premature at 32 weeks and had sepsis. She is now 1.y months old. The OAE screen has come refer twice...
THere is no hearing loss. But OAE refers to lsoo in certain frequency and repeat it later Pure-tone (PT) audiometry measures throughout the outer ear, middle ear, cochlea, cranial nerve (CN) VIII, and central auditory system. However, OAEs measure only the peripheral auditory system, which includes the outer ear, middle ear, and cochlea. The response only emanates from the cochlea, but the outer and middle ear must be able to transmit the emitted sound back to the recording microphone. OAE testing often is used as a screening tool to determine the presence or absence of cochlear function, although analysis can be performed for individual cochlear frequency regions. OAEs cannot be used to fully describe an individual's auditory thresholds, but they can help question or validate other threshold measures (eg, in suspected functional [feigned] hearing loss), or they can provide information about the site of the lesion. Using current technology, most researchers and clinicians find a correlation between frequency-specific analysis of TOAEs/DPOAEs and cochlear hearing loss. However, at this juncture, the correlation cannot fully describe auditory threshold. Naturally, a correlation would not be expected for noncochlear hearing loss.

For constipation I will suggest you to eat food with high fiber content like green leafy vegetables and can also eat bananas at bedtime as it is effective as a laxative and if necessary take 10 ml of syp cremaffin at night

What to do if I have frequent cold and coughs?

CCEDM(DIABETES), MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
What to do if I have frequent cold and coughs?
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily

5 Superfoods You Should Include In Your Everyday Diet Plan

Msc. - Food Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
5 Superfoods You Should Include In Your Everyday Diet Plan

Eating right is the simple secret to living healthy. Mothers stress on the importance of eating healthy and at home you shirk off their advice. But deductions based on years of research studies are hard to turn one’s eyes away from. Eating the right food items affects a person’s overall health in more ways than he or she can think of. While you may bring changes to your diet in fifteen days’ time, certain things should always be a part of your daily food consumption.

Take a closer look at these superfoods you should be consuming regularly:-

  1. Include nuts in your daily diet- The amazing revelation that having nuts can add a year or two more to your expected life span can actually attract your attention to its other benefits. Nuts are rightly known as storehouses of energy. Having a handful of nuts everyday can help improve your skin and hair health. It also purifies your body. Nuts have a high percentage of unsaturated fats and can therefore make you reap the benefits of a healthy cardiovascular system.

  2. Oranges can keep you fit- Make it a point to eat citrus fruits on a daily basis. Oranges, particularly, can remedy a host of health issues. Eating one big orange each day can help you to have a taut and firm skin. Oranges are rich in vitamin C which leads to the production of collagen thus further strengthening your skin cells. An orange provides your skin with antioxidants that prevent free- radicals from causing harm to your cells. Vitamin C also leads to the production of antibodies and white blood cells which are necessary for defending your body against diseases.

  3. Fresh green vegetables must be befriended- Green leafy vegetables should be an inevitable component of your daily meals. May it be spinach or kale, eating them in monitored proportions every single day can fulfill your need for vitamins K, C and A. Green vegetables are bountiful in other nutrients like potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron too.

  4. Some yogurt is great for active metabolism- There are many people who lack in calcium and are also allergic to milk. Women usually need more calcium as and when they age; yogurt can be a great substitute for milk in these cases. That aside, yogurt is known to contain helpful bacteria that defends your body from intestinal problems. It helps in digestion and is capable of increasing your metabolic activity.

  5. Raise a toast to tea and enjoy good health- You must be aware of the vast number of plus points drinking green tea has. Tea is known to be useful for your health because of its high content of flavonoids. Tea can aid a person in fighting off diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and other routine problems like weak gums. You may have different kinds of tea but preparing the drink freshly is always more effective.

1. Keep your skin clean and dry. 2. Treat athlete's foot at the same time if you have it. Doing this will decrease the risk for recurrence. 3. Avoid wearing any clothing that rubs or irritates your crotch. 4. Wash your underwear and athletic supporter frequently. 5. Put on your socks before you put on your underwear if you have athlete's foot. 6. Take off wet swimsuits quickly. 7. Avoid carrying wet or sweaty clothing in your gym bag. 8. Treatment - your best options include lamisil, lotrimin ultra, and/or naftin. These are more expensive, but they will get rid of jock itch faster. Prefer lotrimin ultra which contains butenafine hydrochloride over regular lotrimin af which just contains clotrimazole. Studies have shown butenafine can be faster and more effective than clotrimazole. 9. You can also purchase cheaper creams containing clotrimazole or miconazole. These will take a little longer to work, but they will effectively wipe out jock itch.

Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

Hi, I got cold and light fever feeling and body tired or pain. And I slept around 4 to 5 hours for past three days. One transgender did a blow job for me and I wear condom while doing.

Most likely the fever is seasonal infection. Condom gives full protection from std, but its rupture may cause a risk. It depends upon the interval between the blow job and today, because the test may not give a positive result in the window period of 3 months.

Hi, simple nutritional deficiency can cause general weakness of the body. Would advise you to take homoeopathic medicines - alfaalfa tonic and five phos. - both thrice daily, and let me know about your condition after a month. Management: daily intake more of healthy, nutritious and balanced food which includes green vegetables, seasonal fruits, salads, legumes, pulses, eggs, milk & milk products, oats, cornflakes, muesli, nuts, lean meat (chicken & few seafood), etc. Keep yourself well-hydrated by taking at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day, also increase intake of other fluids like coconut water, shikanji, jaljeera, gulkand, rooh-afza, lassi, curd, etc. Which has got cooling effect on the body during this hot summer weather. Sleep for 6-9 hrs at night and 1-2 hrs. During daytime. Avoid going out or playing under the sun, best time is after sunset. Wear a hat with broad brim, wear sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun. Don't awake late nights, follow motto of'early to bed, early to rise' avoid unnecessary exertion or stress. ****you can have a glass of lemon-water or glucon-d before going out****
