Dear , schizophrenia has different forms and less than 10% cases are hereditary. You need to talk to the psychiatrist who is treating the patient and inquire about the hereditary aspect. Secondly, I suggest you not to carry such doubts in your mind. If your son likes the girl, let them marry and lead a happy life. Future will be taken care of by them. Take care.

I am 36 year old male habitual of smoking atleast two cigarettes a day, kindly tell which vitamins, nutrient will be reduced in my body. What would be consequences of two cigarette smoking on health.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is not the loss of nutrients or vitamins that is of concern when you smoke. It is that cigarette smoke has at least 7000 chemicals that can cause havoc to your system. If you smoke less, you cause less damage. So all that you are doing is dying slowly. In case your constitution has any precipitating factors, you could hasten the damage. The consequences of cigarette smoking is less if you smoke less but the other conditions may anyway aggravate ill-health. So instead of worrying or calculating the effects, just stop this habit because it is bad, period. Fortunately, almost all the damage by smoking can be reversed, if and when you stop and take measures to lead a healthy life of exercise, diet and rest. It is difficult to quantify the extent of damage but effects could be felt in your stamina, skin wrinkling, lung capacity, heart strain, eye damage, sexual erectile capacity, tooth decay and tartar buildup, foul breath, damage to the celia lining your throat, brain cells, and for some people the early stages of cancer promoting conditions, and a host of other problems. You are advised to stop immediately and abruptly. Check this summary if you are still seriously looking for an excuse to smoke less and feel somewhat justified. Summary: (Source:Center for Disease Control and Prevention) • Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. This is nearly one in five deaths. • More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history. • Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women.1,2 More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer. • About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking. • Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women. • Smoking is estimated to increase the risk— o For coronary heart disease by 2 to 4 times o For stroke by 2 to 4 times o Of men developing lung cancer by 25 times • Of women developing lung cancer by 25.7 times • Smoking causes diminished overall health, increased absenteeism from work, and increased health care utilization and cost. • Smoking causes stroke and coronary heart disease. • Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of cardiovascular disease. • Smoking damages blood vessels and can make them thicken and grow narrower. This makes your heart beat faster and your blood pressure go up. Clots can also form. • Blockages caused by smoking can also reduce blood flow to your legs and skin. • Lung diseases caused by smoking include COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. • Cigarette smoking causes most cases of lung cancer. • If you have asthma, tobacco smoke can trigger an attack or make an attack worse. • Smokers are 12 to 13 times more likely to die from COPD than nonsmokers. Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body: • Bladder • Blood (acute myeloid leukemia) • Cervix • Colon and rectum (colorectal) • Esophagus • Kidney and ureter • Larynx • Liver • Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils) • Pancreas • Stomach • Trachea, bronchus, and lung • Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. Smoking increases risks for: o Preterm (early) delivery o Stillbirth (death of the baby before birth) o Low birth weight o Sudden infant death syndrome (known as SIDS or crib death) o Ectopic pregnancy o Orofacial clefts in infants • Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. • Smoking can affect bone health. o Women past childbearing years who smoke have weaker bones than women who never smoked, and are at greater risk for broken bones. • Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. • Smoking can increase your risk for cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens that makes it hard for you to see) and age-related macular degeneration (damage to a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for central vision). • Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. The risk of developing diabetes is 30–40% higher for active smokers than nonsmokers. • Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. • Smoking is a cause of rheumatoid arthritis.

Hi Doctor, I'm 25 years old and my body is aging fast due to the emotional stress, from past 6 months i am experiencing this emotional stress due to relationship breakup. My question is can the body be recovered from the emotional stress, if so please mention the ways to recover.

Dear, emotional stress due to relationship breakup or any other reasons is a very tormenting experience for anyone. Its not easy to remove all the past memories which very wonderful as well as some were painful. In a relationship, we develop lot of attachment with our partner which makes it difficult to resolve breakup once that attached partner is no more with us. It feels like one of our body parts is not with us any more. This results in constant emotional pain as we don't find any other source of relief or attachment. Loss leads to experiences of being wounded. Its easy to heal physical wounds but emotional wounds generally stay with us forever. Many times we are not able to interpret the breakup and its reasons properly which results in consistent feelings of hatred and anger towards our partner and self. We keep pondering what went wrong and how we could have saved the relationship. So we may also feel lots of guilt. This makes the pain of breakup difficult to resolve. So one must understand the feelings associated with breakup and how they are causing pain to us. This requires an initiation of self-healing process. Try to focus on your feelings and see what are the most prominent ones. For example, are you feeling guilty that breakup was all your fault or do you feel anger that you have been betrayed. Try to understand what thoughts come to your mind when you think about your breakup or the thoughts that pop into your mind now and then that depress you and make you feel worse. This way you will understand how you have to heal yourself. Breakup experiences are different for everyone. You will come to know that breakup has some particularly significant effect on you which can be healed by developing self-compassion. You need to heal yourself by becoming more aware about your feelings. Distracting yourself by engaging in day to day normal activities may repress your emotions which may withdraw you from initiating new relationships. So try to make this breakup a transformative experience for you so that you may enter into a new relationship with new learning and experience. There should be no negativity left in you as a result of this experience. First gain awareness of feelings, then develop self-compassion, then see both sides of the breakup and then learn from this experience. Initial work should be of self-healing. Then look for moving further.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The best method to clear the tar deposit is to quit smoking. Your body starts repairing process immediately after quitting. Within 6 months the repair process finishes. If you continue smoking, no medicine can clear the tar deposit. Take care.

How Stress Impacts Fertility?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DGO

How Stress Impacts Fertility?

In today’s modern, fast paced society, it is easy for people to become stressed. In fact, one would almost think that being stressed is the “in” thing, and if you aren’t stressed it must mean there is something wrong with you! Realistically however, stress is not a good thing for our bodies in general, and has a very real impact on your fertility.

Can Stress Have an Effect on Your Fertility?

If your mind and body is under stress your body is signaled to release a hormone - Adrenalin. This is a stress relieving hormone and gives your body the rush to face the stress. This hormone inhibits the utilization of the hormone Progesterone, which is essential for fertility. Also during stress Prolactin, another hormone, is relapsed which also interferes with infertility. Hence to conceive its essential that your anxiety levels are under control.

How Stress Impacts Fertility?

Recent research tells us that stress boosts levels of stress hormones, such as adrenaline, catecholamines and cortisol, which can inhibit the release of the body’s main hormone, GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone), which is responsible for the release of sex hormones. Subsequently this may suppress ovulation in women, reduce sperm count in men and lower libido in both women and men.

Chronic Stress also decreases libido:

Chronic stress may cause lack of libido as well as a decrease in general fertility. This has become such a common issue that they have created a name for it Stress Induced Reproductive Dysfunction. These facts are very important to consider if you have been trying to conceive with no results. It also shows that stress relief should be a part of every couple's conception plan even if they are going through IVF.

Ways to reduce stress & improve fertility:

If you are having difficulty to conceive, it's imperative that you get fertility tests done and also evaluate your life. Look out for the stress points that may be hindering a relationship. Remember defeating the stress may be the solution to your worries.

  1. Reduce stress in your life: The issues in your life may be work or result related. You need to learn to balance your personal and professional life. The sooner you do it the better; after all you are preparing yourself to welcome a new born in your life.
  2. Change your reactions: Get a hang of the situation and react accordingly. Over reaction to a situation can harm your body and mind. Stop bothering so much about the future.
  3. Let few things be the way they are: Stop getting bothered about people. Remember by nature everything will fall in place. Let few things be the way they are.
  4. Make it your habit to reduce stress: Call it an obsession or a practice, train your mind to choose options where there is less stress.
  5. Sleep well: A good rest is essential for a healthy mind and body. Meditate, do yoga or seek counseling. Go for facials if it sooths you.

Please note that if your fertility reports are normal, then it's just a matter of time. Give you, your partner and your body time. There are certain medical complications or disorders that can also be responsible for infertility. Be calm and composed so that you are able to face the rough waters clearly with your partner.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

My son 3.3 years old but he is not able to speak clearly. He can say mamma, Papa but not any other word. Kindly suggest me.

Check his hearing-if that is ok expose him to other kids of his age and then speech will automatically develop-sometimes nature has its own ways he will start talking soon -may b sentences with 2-3 words together first and then long sentences.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Your son is also having anxiety disorder. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, I hope with inderal and prodep your depressive symptoms are less. Please attend gym without protein supplements. Since you have irritable bowel syndrome, you may find it difficult to digest too much protein. For allergic lab tests, you have to consult a immunologist.
