Good Evening. Please do not discard my request. Please read my problem completely. 3 years back my mother suffered TIA attack something like paralytic stroke after treatment she recovered and takes Telma 20, Deplatt 75, Calaptin 40 mg and Avas 5mg. Everything was going on well even though she had little weakness and did not get her complete strength. But however after 3 years suddenly last week she complained of pain in Right hand a pulling like tight feeling then suddenly she felt her Right hand is very weak and is not like her left hand and felt tingling sensation in fingers of Right hand and lost grip in her Right hand. We were very much worried as to what is this after 3 years again. So we took her to Apollo hospital where Dr. asked for few tests like Lipid profile, ECG, 2D ECHO and Carotid doppler some ultrasound tests. All her tests showed normal. So Doctor said nothing to worry reports are normal but it was again a symptom of TIA Paralytic stroke attack. Doctor changed Deplatt 75 to Deplatt 75 A. Which has (aspirin). Our Doctor said nothing to worry its just come and gone. But this put my family and especially my mother in a lot of fear as to why this stroke effect had come back after 3 years when BP and other reports are normal. I need your help to please tell me is anything serious going to happen to my mother? Is it any indication to serious health problem? She again lost her strength and her confidence of recovery and is having sleepless nights from 1 week. Please assist me. Will my mother be completely cured or will these attack keep coming and going. Please advice if any risk involved. Thanking you Shalini.

As the meaning of tia goes. The patient recovers completely within next 24 hours. If not. Then we call it a stroke. A tia is said to be a warning for a stroke. Good that she is under proper medications which are given to prevent a major attack. You may ask the physician to take care of her anxiety and give her some reassurances.

आंवला के फायदे, गुण, लाभ, नुकसान - Amla ke Fayde, Gun, Labh, Nuksan in Hindi

B.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition

आंवला के फायदे, गुण, लाभ, नुकसान - Amla ke Fayde, Gun, Labh, Nuksan in Hindi

आंवला या अमालाकी को सबसे अधिक आयुर्वेदिक घटक के रूप में कहा जा सकता है। यह भोजन और दवा दोनों है। यह छोटा सा फल असंख्य स्वास्थ्य लाभों से भरा है। अमला शब्द खट्टा का उल्लेख करता है, जो कि इसका मुख्य स्वाद है। इसका वनस्पति नाम एम्बलोका ऑफिजिनालिस या फ़िलेंथस इम्ब्लिका है।
यह जड़ी बूटी एक बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सीडेंट है, जो कि मुक्त कणों से होने वाली सेल ऑक्सीकरण को रोकती है। विरोधी उम्र बढ़ने और कैंसर, मधुमेह और हृदय रोग जैसे रोगों को रोकने के लिए एंटीऑक्सिडेंट महत्वपूर्ण हैं। 

आंवले के लाभ:
यह कई बीमारियों के लिए उपचार प्रदान करता है और इसलिए इसका व्यापक रूप से आयुर्वेदिक उपचार में उपयोग किया जाता है। आंवला विटामिन सी में बहुत समृद्ध है, और कई खनिज और कैल्शियम, फास्फोरस, आयरन, कैरोटीन और विटामिन बी कॉम्प्लेक्स जैसे विटामिन शामिल हैं।
आमला के स्वास्थ्य लाभ में निम्न शामिल हैं:
1. आँखों के लिए:
शहद के साथ आंवले का रस पीने से दृष्टि में सुधार होता है। अध्ययनों से यह भी पता चला है कि यह अंतर-ओक्यूलर तनाव को कम कर, निकटता और मोतियाबिंद में सुधार करता है। विटामिन ए और कैरोटीन मेक्यूलर डिएनेजरेशन, रात अंधापन को कम करता है और आपकी दृष्टि को मजबूत कर सकता है। 
2. मधुमेह के लिए:
आंवला, कोशिकाओं के पृथक समूह को उत्तेजित करता है जो हार्मोन इंसुलिन को छिपाने के साथ-साथ मधुमेह रोगियों में रक्त शर्करा को कम करते हैं और शरीर को संतुलित और स्वस्थ रखते हैं। इसमें मौजूद क्रोमियम शरीर के एलडीएल कोलेस्ट्रॉल सामग्री को कम करके, हृदय स्वास्थ्य के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है, जो बीटा-अवरोधक के प्रभाव को बढ़ाता है।
3. पाचन के लिए:
आंवला में बहुत अधिक मात्रा में फाइबर है जो आंतों के माध्यम से भोजन को ले जाने में मदद करता है और आपके मल त्याग को नियमित रखता है। फाइबर ढीली मल को भी बढ़ा सकता है और दस्त को कम कर सकता है। 
4. दिल के लिए:
यह हृदय की मांसपेशियों को भी मजबूत बनाता है। अतिरिक्त कोलेस्ट्रॉल बिल्डअप को कम करने से, आंवले में मौजूद क्रोमियम आथरोसक्लेरोसिस की संभावना को कम कर सकता है, तथा जहाजों और धमनियों में पट्टिका के निर्माण को कम कर सकता है। लोहे की सामग्री नए लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं के निर्माण को बढ़ावा देती है, रक्त वाहिकाओं और धमनियों को साफ करते हुए नए रक्त कोशिकाओं के विकास और पुनर्जन्म को अधिकतम करने के लिए परिसंचरण और अंगों और कोशिकाओं के ऑक्सीजन को बढ़ाता है।
5. बालों के लिए:
आंवला कई बाल के टॉनिकों में प्रयोग किया जाता है क्योंकि यह बाल विकास और बाल रंजकता को बढ़ाता है। ताजा आंवला खाने या बालों की जड़ों पर इसका पेस्ट लगाने से बाल विकास और रंग में सुधार होता है।
6. मेटाबोलिक गतिविधि:
आंवले में प्रोटीन भी होते हैं। सेलुलर विकास, मांसपेशियों के विकास, अंग स्वास्थ्य, और अन्य चयापचय गतिविधियों की एक विस्तृत श्रृंखला के लिए प्रोटीन आवश्यक है।
7. मूत्रवर्धक गतिविधि:
आंवला थोड़ा मूत्रवर्धक भी है, जो आवृत्ति और पेशाब की मात्रा बढ़ाता है। मूत्रवर्धक पदार्थ हमारे गुर्दे को स्वस्थ रखने, मूत्र संक्रमण और गर्भाशय में संक्रमण को रोकने के लिए आवश्यक होता है।
8. मासिक धर्म में ऐंठन के लिए:
आंवले में मौजूद कुछ खनिज और विटामिन सामूहिक रूप से मासिक धर्म के ऐंठन के उपचार में बहुत उपयोगी होते हैं।
9. संक्रमण के लिए:
इसके जीवाणुरोधी और कसैले गुणों के कारण, आंवले शरीर के संक्रमण के खिलाफ रक्षा करते हैं और शरीर की प्रतिरक्षा प्रतिक्रिया में सुधार करते हैं। आंवले में मौजूद विटामिन सी शरीर में सफेद रक्त कोशिका की गिनती में वृद्धि करते हैं।
10. एंटी-एजिंग:
आंवला अपने एंटीऑक्सिडेंट गुणों के माध्यम से शरीर में मुक्त कणों की मात्रा को कम करके स्वास्थ्य से संबंधित हाइपरलिपिडाइमिया को रोकता है। मुक्त कण, उम्र बढ़ने के लक्षणों जैसे झुर्रियाँ और उम्र के धब्बे के साथ जुड़े हुए हैं।

आंवले के दुष्प्रभाव
सभी पहलुओं में एक सुपर भोजन, आंवला साइड इफेक्ट्स से मुक्त नहीं है। हालांकि अध्ययनों में किसी प्रकार के जहरीले या कठोर, नकारात्मक प्रभावों की रिपोर्ट नहीं होती है, लेकिन आंवले के उपयोग से संबंधित कुछ हल्के, प्रतिकूल प्रतिक्रियाएं हैं। 
1. हाइपरएसिडि टी ट्रिगर कर सकता है:
यदि आपका हाइपरएसिडि टी या विटामिन सी खाद्य पदार्थों की संवेदनशीलता का कोई भी इतिहास है, तो आपको इस फल को खाने से बचना चाहिए।
2. अगर आप उच्च मात्रा में आंवले का उपभोग करते हैं, तो यह मल को कठोर कर सकता है।
3. हाइपोग्लिसेमिक लोगों को आंवले के उपयोग से बचने की सलाह दी जाती है क्योंकि इससे उनकी स्वास्थ्य स्थिति खराब हो सकती है।
4. जिन लोगों को आंवले से एलर्जी हो, उन्हे कुछ स्वास्थ्य संबंधी मुद्दों जैसे दस्त, पेट में दर्द, पेट में ऐंठन, मतली, उल्टी, लाली और अपने मुँह के आसपास सूजन, चेहरे पर लालच, त्वचा और चेहरे पर पित्ती, श्वास बाधित, सिरदर्द, चक्कर आना, और हल्केपन का अनुभव हो सकता है।

Hi less likely you could have pregnancy as sex was in safe period. Please get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If test is negative then it could be due to hormonal imbalance or stress. On case of positive test you can go for medical termination of pregnancy is intrauterine.

Hypertension In Pregnancy

MBBS, PGDCC
Cardiologist, Delhi
Hypertension In Pregnancy

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is defined as blood pressure higher than 140/90 mm hg. Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy are a major cause of maternal, fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality, both in developing and developed countries. Hypertension is the most common medical problem in pregnancy.
If high blood pressure continues after 20 weeks of pregnancy, preeclampsia and other complications can develop.

What causes high blood pressure during pregnancy?
According to the national heart, lung, and blood institute (nhlbi), there are several possible causes of high blood pressure during pregnancy.
These include:
- being overweight or obese
- failing to stay active
- smoking
- drinking alcohol
- first-time pregnancy
- a family history of pregnancy-related hypertension
- carrying more than one child
- assistive technology (such as ivf)
- maternal age is also a factor, with pregnant women over the age of 40 being more at risk.

BP measurement:
# use a sitting or semi-reclining position so that the arm to be used is at the level of the heart.
# do not take the bp in the upper arm with the woman on her side, as this will give falsely lower readings.

What are the complications of high blood pressure during pregnancy?
- if high blood pressure continues after 20 weeks of pregnancy, there can be complications. Preeclampsia can develop.

What is preeclampsia?

This condition can cause serious damage to your organs, including your brain and kidneys. Preeclampsia is also known as toxemia or pregnancy-induced hypertension. Preeclampsia with seizures becomes eclampsia. This can be fatal.

Thorough prenatal care, including regular doctor’s visits, should be able to address preeclampsia symptoms. Symptoms include:

@protein in a urine sample
Abnormal swelling in hands and feet
@persistent headaches

Preventing high blood pressure during pregnancy:
Common risk factors for high blood pressure, such as obesity and a history of high blood pressure, can be minimized through diet and exercise. Of course, during pregnancy, it is inevitable that you will gain some weight. It’s recommended that pregnant women consult with their doctor to identify a weight gain target that is healthy for them.

Dietary guidelines for pregnant women vary from person to person. Speak with a nutritionist who will keep your specific height and weight in mind when creating a nutrition plan for you.

The nhlbi emphasizes that it’s important to take steps to lessen your risk of high blood pressure. You should steer clear of smoking and drinking alcohol, both of which have been known to raise blood pressure.

Pregnancy causes hormone shifts, as well as psychological and physical changes. This can bring on stress, which can make high blood pressure harder to manage. Try stress reduction techniques such as yoga and meditation.

 

Management:
Management depends on the woman's bp, gestational age and blood flow in the placenta. Non-pharmacological management is recommended for many women but is not recommended when there is the presence of associated maternal and fetal risk factors. Non-pharmacological management includes close supervision, limitation of activities, and some bed rest in the left lateral position.

All pregnant women should receive antenatal education so that they are aware of the symptoms associated with pre-eclampsia, its importance, and the need to obtain medical advice.


Such symptoms include:
Severe headache.
Visual problems: blurred vision or flashing before the eyes.
Severe epigastric pain.
Vomiting.
Sudden swelling of the face, hands or feet.
 

Women who are at high risk of pre-eclampsia are recommended to take 75 mg aspirin daily from 12 weeks of gestation to delivery. Such women are those with:

- hypertension or pre-eclampsia/eclampsia in a past pregnancy.
- chronic kidney disease.
- autoimmune disease (eg, systemic lupus erythematosus (sle) or antiphospholipid syndrome).
- diabetes mellitus (both type 1 or 2).
- chronic hypertension.


Women should also take 75 mg aspirin daily from the 12th week if they have any two of the following features:- in their first pregnancy.
- aged ≥40 years.
- previous pregnancy >10 years ago.
- body mass index (bmi) of ≥35 kg/m2 at booking.
- family history of pre-eclampsia.
- multiple pregnancy.

Medication for high blood pressure during pregnancy:
Some traditional blood pressure medications can cause problems in pregnant women should be avoided when you are pregnant:

-ace inhibitors
-renin inhibitors
-angiotensin receptor blockers
These drugs in particular will be passed through the bloodstream to the developing baby. They can negatively impact the baby’s health. These medications may also cause blood to thin, which can compromise the mother’s ability to carry the baby to term.

Methyldopa and labetalol are both drugs that have been deemed safe for use to manage blood pressure during pregnancy.

Talk to your doctor about how to control your blood pressure if you develop hypertension during pregnancy.

Summary:
High blood pressure during pregnancy doesn’t usually lead to serious problems. However, if it goes untreated, hypertension can become life-threatening for both mother and baby.

You are in peri menopausal age. Menopause is said to have started of one does not have menses for 1 year. Menopause means that the ovaries in your body have ceased to produce the ovum and has been depleted of it. Usually when ovum is produced, another hormone called estrogen is also released. Lack of ovulation means lack of estrogen. This deficiency of estrogens causes the various symptoms that you are suffering. It is good that you are going to gym. Your weight of 76 kg is excess for your height of 160cm meet a gynecologist and take her help in solving your bloated feeling. She may prescribe some medicines depending on your assessment and help you. Natural food which help in perimenopause are soyabeans which have naturla estrogens. There are many soya products in market like soya flour, soya paneer (tofu) soya milk, etc use them and see.
