YOu have to check your thyroid even now. To lose weight, you must burn more calories than you consume a day from your diet, if you burn 3000 calories, you’ll lose a pound a week. People who lose weight slowly, about 1 to 2 pounds per week, are more successful at keeping the weight off. You'll also burn additional calories if you increase your physical activity. You weight-loss plan should do all of the following: •Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. •Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. •Contain foods low in saturated fats, avoid trans fats, and limit cholesterol and salt (sodium). •Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Some tips to help you lose weight: •Keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat is critical! Noting how you feel when you eat will help you identify emotional triggers that may cause you to overeat. Emotional eaters tend to overeat. •Eat when you're truly hungry rather than when you're tired, anxious or stressed. •Eat slowly. If you eat too fast, you eat more than you need to satisfy your hunger. Your brain needs time to catch up with your stomach. •Plan your meals ahead of time so you make healthy choices. When dining out, check the menu online and decide what you will order before you sit down. Ask for dressings on the side. Opt for foods that are baked, broiled or steamed versus fried or swimming in creamy sauces. Avoid chips and bread baskets—they add unnecessary calories. •Stay hydrated. People often mistake thirst for hunger. •Eat breakfast. If you skip this meal, you'll be starving by lunchtime. You'll have more difficulty making healthy choices throughout the day. Find resources to help you keep track of your food choices and nutritional values and that can offer additional support when you need it.

Ectopic Pregnancy: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Ectopic Pregnancy: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

In a normal pregnancy, the egg that the ovaries release enters the fallopian tube. If a sperm fertilises it, the fertilised egg attaches itself inside the uterus. However, sometimes the fertilised egg can attach itself outside the uterus. This condition is called ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic pregnancy can be detected in the first few weeks of the pregnancy itself. If your doctor does discover ectopic pregnancy, you would need immediate medical attention. Ectopic pregnancies can be sad and scary. The survival rate of the baby is extremely low, and you may need some time to get over your loss. Fortunately, one ectopic pregnancy doesn't mean you can never conceive again. Many women who lost their first baby to ectopic pregnancy have been able to have a healthy and normal pregnancy the second time around.

The causes of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. An inflammation or infection of the fallopian tube can lead it to become entirely or partially blocked.
  2. Scar tissue from a surgery or an infection of the fallopian tube may also hinder the movement of the fertilised egg.
  3. Surgery in the tubes or pelvic areas in the past might cause adhesions.
  4. Birth defects or abnormal growths can cause anomalies in the shape of the tube.

These causes are usually followed by certain risk factors, such as:

  • Age (The age group of 35-44 especially)
  • An ectopic pregnancy in the past
  • Previous abdominal or pelvic surgery
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Several prompted abortions
  • Conceiving with an intrauterine device in place
  • Smoking
  • Endometriosis (growth of uterus lining tissues outside the uterus).
  • Fertility treatments.

The signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. Minimal vaginal bleeding
  2. Vomiting and nausea with pain
  3. Pain in the lower abdomen
  4. Sharp cramps in the abdomen
  5. Localised pain (Pain concentrated on one side of your body)
  6. Pain in your neck, rectum or shoulder
  7. Rupture of the fallopian tubes can cause fainting due to the bleeding and pain

The treatment of ectopic pregnancy can be any one of the following:

  1. If the pregnancy has not progressed too far, methotrexate will be administered. This absorbs the pregnancy tissue and can save the fallopian tubes.
  2. The tubes may be removed if they have ruptured or stretched, and have started bleeding.
  3. Laparoscopic surgery (operations performed by making minor incisions) may be performed to remove or repair the tubes and recover the ectopic pregnancy.

You Need To Make These 6 Lifestyle Changes Now!

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
You Need To Make These 6 Lifestyle Changes Now!
It is not only important to monitor what you eat or drink but also how you time it all. If we discipline ourselves towards a better lifestyle, maintaining good health won’t be such a task. It is World Health Day today. It is a good reason to take complete responsibility of inculcating healthy habits into our life.

Follow these 6 changes to your lifestyle to feel better and live healthier-

1) King’s Breakfast: Most people don't feel like eating much at breakfast, esp. the late nighters. However, ignoring or skipping breakfast sets a bad rhythm for the rest of your day and weakens your immune system. Having breakfast is a must and the ideal breakfast is one which is low in carbs and has a good portion of protein. For people short on time, a seasonal fruit with raw nuts and a little yogurt can be a good option.

2) Water Intake: Drinking inadequate water causes dehydration inside and can lead to a number of issues. Most common issues are headaches, dry skin, impaired sleep, joint problems, poor concentration as well as digestive disorders. Best way to address this problem is to keep water handy wherever you are. Try to drink about two litres of water each day. More, if its hot or after workouts.

3) Sleep Well: Sleep time is rejuvenation for your body. If you don't get enough sleep, you will deprive your body the time to recover and tackle whatever the next day has to offer. Try to be in bed earlier and get atleast 7 hours of sleep.

4) Physical Training: A good mix of aerobic as well as resistance training is quite important for your health. You feel more energetic and productive when you physically work out. Folks who exercise regularly are generally happier than those who are inactive.

5) Stress Releasing: Stress is a major factor in inducing various forms of illnesses. Stress must not accumulate. Try to give yourself some time every week to do things that you enjoy – it can be reading or meditating or enjoying the outdoors.

6) No Self Medication: Often one wrong medicine causes much more harm than any medicine at the right time, does good. Try to avoid popping pills without doctor’s recommendation. Many side effects or reactions to an existing medication or condition can lead to uncalled for problems and complications later. Don’t rely on sources like chemist or a relative to guide you, they might not look at the right details due to lack of knowledge. Say no to self medication.

Before "true" labor begins, you might have "false" labor pains, also known as Braxton Hicks contractions. These irregular uterine contractions are perfectly normal and might start to occur from your fourth month of pregnancy. They are your body’s way of getting ready for the "real thing. Braxton Hicks contractions can be described as tightening in the abdomen that comes and goes. These contractions do not get closer together, do not increase in how long they last or how often they occur, and do not feel stronger over time. They often come with a change of position and stop with rest. So how do you know when your contractions are the "real thing? Timing of contractions: False labor — contractions are often irregular and do not get closer together. True labor — contractions come at regular intervals and get closer together as time goes on. (Contractions last about 30 to 70 seconds.) Change with movement: False labor — Contractions might stop when you walk or rest, or might even stop when you change position. True labor — Contractions continue, despite moving or changing positions. It is essential to call your health care provider at any time if you have: Bright red vaginal bleeding Continuous leaking of fluid or wetness, or if your water breaks (can be felt as a "gushing" of fluid) Strong contractions every five minutes for one hour Contractions that you are unable to "walk through" A noticeable change in your baby’s movement, or if you feel fewer than six to 10 movements in one hour.

Diarrhea in Hindi - जानें: क्या हैं डायरिया!

Diarrhea in Hindi - जानें: क्या हैं डायरिया!

दस्त, ढीले, जलीय, मुलायम मल के लगातार उत्सर्जन को कहते हैं। यह पेट में सूजन, दबाव, और ऐंठन के साथ हो सकता है। डायरिया सबसे आम चिकित्सा समस्याओं में से एक है जिसके लिए लोग चिकित्सा सलाह लेते हैं। विश्व स्तर पर, अतिसारजनक बीमारियों के लगभग 2 अरब मामलें हर साल देखे जाते हैं। इतना ही नहीं, 5 वर्ष से कम आयु के 1.9 मिलियन बच्चे, ज्यादातर विकासशील देशों में, दस्त से मर जाते हैं। 

यह आमतौर पर कुछ दिनों तक रहता है और अक्सर किसी भी उपचार के बिना गायब हो जाता है। परंतु यह एक हल्की, अस्थायी स्थिति से लेकर जीवन-धमकी की स्थिति तक हो सकती है। दस्त तरुण या चिरकारी हो सकती है। 
तीव्र दस्त तब होता है जब स्थिति एक से दो दिन तक होती है। वायरल या जीवाणु संक्रमण या भोजन विषाक्तता के परिणामस्वरूप आपको दस्त का अनुभव हो सकता है। तरुण दस्त होना काफी आम है। दूसरी ओर क्रोनिक (चिरकारी) डायरिया आमतौर पर कम से कम चार सप्ताह तक रहता है। आंतों की बीमारी या विकार, जैसे कि सीलिएक रोग या क्रोहन रोग से क्रोनिक (चिरकारी) दस्त हो सकती है। 

दस्त के लक्षण
अपने आप में दस्त अन्य स्थितियों का एक लक्षण है। हालांकि, अतिसार के भी लक्षण हैं, जिनमें शामिल हैं:

  1. मतली 
  2. पेट में दर्द
  3. ऐंठन
  4. सूजन
  5. निर्जलीकरण
  6. बुखार
  7. मल में खून
  8. अपने आंत को खाली करने की लगातार तीव्र इच्छा
  9. बड़ी मात्रा में मल 

कुछ लक्षणों को अधिक गंभीर बीमारी के संकेतक के रूप में देखा जाता है। लक्षण जैसे- रक्त या मवाद, बुखार, निर्जलीकरण के लक्षण, लगातार उल्टी, क्रोनिक डायरिया, या वजन घटना।
चिकित्सक को देखने की आवश्यकता के संकेत:

  1. आपका दस्त दो दिनों से अधिक समय रहता है
  2. आप निर्जलित हो जाते हैं
  3. आपके पेट या गले में गंभीर दर्द है
  4. मल खूनी या काले हैं
  5. आपको 102 F (39 सी) से ऊपर बुखार है

दस्त का कारण
अतिसार के अधिकांश मामलें जठरांत्र पथ में जीवाणु, वायरल, या परजीवी संक्रमण के कारण होता है। वायरल दस्त आमतौर पर लगभग 3 से 7 दिनों तक रहता है, और हल्के से मध्यम लक्षणों के साथ जुड़ा हुआ है। रोटावायरस और नोरोवायरस दस्त के दो आम कारण हैं।
बैक्टीरिया के संक्रमण से दस्त अधिक गंभीर मामलों का कारण बनता है। कैम्पिलोबैक्टर, सैल्मोनेले, और शिगेला जीव बैक्टीरियल डायरिया के सबसे आम कारण हैं। परजीवी दूषित पानी के प्रयोग से पाचन तंत्र में संक्रमण फैलाते हैं। डायरिया के आम परजीवी कारणों में जिआर्डिया लैंब्लिया, एंटअमीबा हिस्टोलिटिका, और क्रिप्टोस्पोरिडियम शामिल हैं। 

सूजन आंत्र रोग, इर्रिटेबल बोवेल सिंड्रोम (आई.बी.एस), विपुटीशोथ, सूक्ष्म बृहदांत्रशोथ, और सीलिएक रोग सहित आंतों के विकारों या रोगों से दस्त हो सकता है। एंटीबायोटिक दवाओं, ब्लड प्रेशर दवाएं, कैंसर ड्रग्स, गाउट दवाएं, वजन घटाने वाली दवाओं, और ऐंटासिड्स इत्यादि सहित कुछ दवाओं पर प्रतिक्रिया के कारण भी दस्त हो सकता है।
शराब का दुरुपयोग, अतिरिक्त जुलाब, विकिरण चिकित्सा और कुछ कैंसर जिनमें कार्सोइनिड सिंड्रोम, कोलन कैंसर, लिम्फोमा शामिल हैं, दस्त के कुछ अन्य कारण हैं। पेट में सर्जरी या पित्ताशय की थैली हटाने की सर्जरी के बाद भी कुछ लोगों को दस्त जाता है। 

दस्त का निदान
एक चिकित्सक आमतौर पर, दस्त का कारण निर्धारित करने के लिए, शारीरिक परीक्षा आयोजित करता है और आपकी दवाओं की समीक्षा करता है। इसके अलावा, आपका डॉक्टर आपके दस्त का कारण जानने के लिए निम्नलिखित परीक्षणों का आदेश दे सकता है: 

  1. रक्त परीक्षण
  2. मल परीक्षण
  3. लचीले सिग्मायडोस्कोपी या कोलोनोस्कोपी

दस्त के लिए उपचार
दस्त, अधिकांश मामलों में उपचार के बिना कुछ दिनों के भीतर स्वयं हल हो जाता है। अन्यथा, आपका चिकित्सक दवाएँ या अन्य उपचार सुझा सकता है।

  1. एंटीबायोटिक्स बैक्टीरिया या परजीवी के कारण होने वाले दस्त का इलाज कर सकते हैं।
  2. बस अधिक तरल पदार्थ पीने से, या गंभीर मामलों में उन्हें नसों में प्राप्त किया जा सकता है।
  3. ओरल रिहाइड्रेशन सॉल्यूशन (ओ.आर.एस) - यह पानी है जिसमें नमक और ग्लूकोज शामिल है। मल के साथ खो जाने वाले पानी और इलेक्ट्रोलाइट्स को प्रतिस्थापित करने के लिए यह छोटी आंत में अवशोषित होता है।

यदि आपका दस्त अधिक गंभीर स्थिति से उत्पन्न होता है, जैसे सूजन आंत्र रोग, तो आपका डॉक्टर उस स्थिति को नियंत्रित करने के लिए काम करेगा।
