Mr. lybrate-user, Gestational diabetes is a condition that occurs when a lady is pregnant and high blood glucose is detected during weeks of pregnancy. This is not seen in males. It is possible you may be having diabetes itself or a prediabetic condition. If blood glucose levels are mentioned then I may be able to say what is the situation. As regards acne, some times that problem does continue for quite some time. Thanks.

Back pain in pregnancy is common and is due to ligament laxity and postural changes which is normal in preganacy. These are our bodies mechanism to accept an uncomplicated labor. Only if its affecting your daily routine you need to consider treatment for the same. If you are managed to gain wait and eat properly, no need to treat the vomiting as well as it is due to the normal hormonal changes in your body. Happy motherhood. Get blessed with a healthy baby. Avoid unwanted medication. Any queries with painless labor caesarian etc feel free to get back to me.

Learn to stay busy. Go for early morning brisk walk. Eat fresh vegetables and fresh fruits. This is actual base for long sexual fitness. Learn good habits and sex or masterbation 2-3 days a week. Excess of everything is bad.

My daughter most of teeth is having cavity how can I prevent it, as she is just 3 year old.

MD, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Your daughter either must be bottle fed or taking to much sugar. Night time keeping bottle for long time in mouth while sleeping is commonest cause of caries, frequent fruit juices, health drinks, sticking sweet candies are also frequent causes. So please avoid all these. Proper brushing both times with fluorinated tooth paste is important. Consult dentist to prevent further progress to other teeth and gums.

I have erection dysfunction. I am diabetic but always in control. Sugar level always under 95.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I have erection dysfunction. I am diabetic but always in control. Sugar level always under 95.
Mr. lybrate-user, long standing diabetes mellitus even when under good control does damage small blood vessels, due to which many complications result, erectile dysfunction is being one of those. If there is uncontrolled diabetes then it can lead to ED much earlier. Ideally blood glucose should be FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8, to say diabetes is is in very good control. To treat ED one can use PDE-V inhibitors as a temporary relief. These drugs help erection. Thanks.

Hello, there is no medicines and surgeries for stammering. It requires your dedicated and constant monitering and excerises of co-ordinating breathing voices and articulation. It takes your patience and persistance to stop stammering. 1) donot worry about why it came as science has been trying to prove the causes since they came to know about the stammering. 2) if your speaking very fast slowing your speech is very important and first in stammering. 3) there is a speech jammer apps available on android market freely downloadable which will help you spesk slowly and fluently. 4) practice reading slowly. 5) most importantly you need to consult an speech language pathologist at the earliest. Thank you.

What's Cooking? 3 Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing A Cooking Oil

What's Cooking? 3 Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing A Cooking Oil

A healthy lifestyle doesn't just mean eating right; it also means eating food prepared using the right cooking oil. Generally, people buy cooking oil that is advertised as healthy or the one which is being bought regularly for years. However, there is much more to choosing a good cooking oil than just that.

Basic things to remember when choosing an oil

1. Fat composition

-there are 3 types of fats: unsaturated fatty acids saturated and trans fats. Unsaturated are the best followed by saturated, worst being the trans fats.

-unsaturated fats are further classified into monounsaturated fatty acids (mufa) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (pufa)

-studies have shown that when used in place of saturated fats, pufa can help to improve cholesterol levels thereby reducing the risk for heart disease.

-as a rule of thumb, you should choose pufa and mufa containing oils like olive, rice bran, mustard and canola oil, over saturated fats, like butter and vanaspati ghee, to minimize your risk for heart disease.

-trans fats are a strict no-no and are best avoided.

2. Minor health components

-apart from the major components, some oils contain certain components which provide various nutritional benefits even in low levels.

-various such components include tocopherols, oryzanol, phytosterols. All these components have been shown to lower cholesterol levels in the body. They thus help in lowering the risk of heart diseases.

3. Smoke point

-smoking point is the tolerance of oil towards heat. When heated beyond a certain temperature, oil undergoes oxidation thereby forming free radicals which are harmful to your health.

-studies suggest that highly oxidized and heated fats may have carcinogenic effects due to toxic byproducts formed due to frying.

-canola oil, mustard oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil are the ones with a high smoke point and can be used for cooking at high temperature.

Which oils to use?

Mustard oil

The oil has around 70% mufa and 22% pufa of which 10% is omega 3 fatty acid, and 12% is omega 6 fatty acid. It was once considered unhealthy, but studies prove that it is one of the healthiest cooking oils due to its high mufa and pufa content. It is low in saturated fatty acids and has an almost ideal omega 6: omega 3 ratio of 6: 5 (olive oil has around 20: 1). It is also rich in vitamin e and antioxidants. Another fact that goes in its favour is that it is cold pressed.

Rice bran oil

Rice bran oil has a very high smoke point and has a mild flavour. It is one of the most balanced oils with 47% mufa, 33% pufa, and 20% saturated fats. It also contains vitamin e, oryzanol and phytosterols. The only drawback of this oil is that it has less omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid levels.

Soyabean oil

It is one of the most commonly used oils for cooking. It is a rich source of pufa. The unsaturated fatty acids include 10% alphaleinolenic acid, 50% linoleic acid and 23% oleic acid-all of which is good fat. It contains around 14% saturated fat. It has high smoke point and is commonly used in our homes.

Canola oil

It's a native of Canada and is low acidic in nature. It has a high smoke point and over 60% mufa. It has a neutral taste.

Extra virgin olive oil

It's better known for imparting benefits for the heart. It raises the good cholesterol and lowers the bad cholesterol. 75% fats in it are mufa. It has got the fruity aroma. The only limitation of this oil is that it does not have an ideal omega 6: omega 3 ratios (20: 1).

Vanaspati ghee

It is basically refined vegetable oil which is made more stable by increasing its shelf life and decreasing its chances to turn rancid. It is not suitable for deep frying due to its low smoke point. It is considered to be the unhealthiest of al oils since it lacks any vitamins, bioactive compounds and is loaded with trans fats. Consuming this oil is directly linked to high cholesterol and risk of heart diseases.

You should make it a habit of using oils like rice brand oil, canola oil, olive oil and mustard oil in rotation to get the maximum health benefits out of these oils. So go ahead and choose these simple tips to choose your cooking oil for a healthier you.

I have lumbar problem may be sciatica please suggest some exercise for this which can help me.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Regardless of the diagnosis, most types of sciatica will benefit from a regular routine of hamstring stretching. The hamstrings are muscles located in the back of the thigh. Overly tight hamstrings increase the stress on the low back and often aggravate or even cause some of the conditions that result in sciatica.

My sugar is fasting 192 pp is 227 maine aaj test karvaya hai koi medicine ho to bataye.
Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels are very high, particularly fasting. So you need to start treatment with anti-diabetes drugs. There are many medicines, which can be used. I would also like to know hba1c%, before advising any medication. Along with medicine you will have to exercise regularly and take a restricted diet. Plus avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery items, fructose corn syrup containing products, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. Exercise regularly for about 1 hour a day.
