Oats - The Champion Of Breakfasts

What better way to start your morning than a bowl of steaming hot oats!
These gluten-free, fibrous foods prepare you for a long day of of work ahead. It forms a great breakfast choice for vegetarians; it contains more protein than other foodgrains, in terms of quality and quantity.

Oats have a host of vitamins and minerals to make it a perfect meal for you. It has various health benefits:

1. Oats are energy boosters since they are high in carbohydrates. It also contains b-complex vitamins which help in production of energy.

2. Oats are low on calories and keep you full for a longer time, keeping cravings away. This helps you eat less but lose weight in a healthy manner. Your blood pressure, too, is kept under control.

3. It has complex carbohydrates which slowly break down to simple sugars. This prevents the blood sugar levels from rising high. Starting your day with oats helps to keep blood sugars under control for the rest of the day.

4. Oats contain fibers known as beta glucans which can lower the bad cholesterol (ldl), thus, preventing the risk of heart diseases. They also contain unique antioxidants called avenanthramides which also prevent cardiovascular diseases.

5. The soft fiber in oats makes it a perfect food for people with gastritis, colitis and any other digestive issues. Its high fiber content regularizes the bowel movement and cure constipation.

6. Lignans, a type of phytochemical in oats, reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer and also causes the stools to become bulky which can dilute and eliminate cancer causing agents.

7. Selenium and beta glucans in oats help to enhance the immune system and eliminate the bacteria from the body faster protecting us from bacterial infections.


Sprinkling a handful of chopped dates adds more value to your oatmeal: it helps you avoid that spoonful of sugar and also contributes to a healthy heart.

So, with every new sunrise, you ought to be looking forward to a lip-smacking, nutritious breakfast!

hello, This is vaginismus and can be solved by using lubricant gel with lignocaine jelly before intercourse around the introitus. If doesn't succeed then meet your gynecologist.

Periods may get delayed or irregular because of ipill. If they miss by 7 days then please get urine pregnanc test done and keep repeating it every week till she gets menses. Safe period is not very reliable as sometimes ovulation gets delayed.

Yes, take a urine pregnancy test (upt): take the first sample of urine passed in morning for the test send it to a lab. Home tests sometimes give very confusing results. If this test is negative, rest assured that pregnancy has not occurred and that menses may be delayed for some other reason like" worry about the menses" if by chance the upt comes positive, do not worry, you can always go to a" registered abortion center" or a gynecologist and get tablets to abort the pregnancy.

Any medication shud b taken under a consultant advice. As there are many contraindications in some patients of a particular medication. For a contraceptive to work in first cycle it should b started on day 1 of menstrual cycle. It shud b taken regularly wid out any gap otherwise may cause breakthrough bleeding or ovulation which may lead to pregnancy. The contraceptive pill is not a indication of abortion you may continue pregnancy. The risks of abnormality are same as a normal woman.

Sex of the fetus can be diagnosed only on ultrasound after 16 weeks, but is banned in india and you should refrain from perusing this as it has legal punishment and heavy fine for both patient and doctor also. There is no symptom by which you can make out the sex of the fetus.

unlikely she is pregnant with this episode. As it is 5 days already since the episode she will have to wait patiently to see if her next period comes on time, Also I would suggest she get a PAP smear done as she has had poscoital bleeding i.e bleeding after sex.

Symptoms and risk factors associated with Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder which is marked by the tremendous compulsion to binge eat, and then adopt extreme measures to avoid putting on weight. It usually affects men and women of all ages. Bulimia Nervosa makes you extremely restless, when all you think about is how to undo the binge eating.

Signs that you are suffering from Bulimia

You are unable to stop eating
You consume food very secretively when nobody is around
You eat till you almost feel sick
You rarely eat normally; you either overeat, or you go on a fast
You exercise vigorously after eating to burn off the calories
You use a lot of laxatives, or enemas
You try to vomit out the food you have consumed because you feel guilty
You have a very poor image and perception about your own body.
You have low self esteem, and you consider yourself to be worthless and unattractive

Physical signs of Bulimia Nervosa

Scars on the knuckles or hands; from trying to run your finger down your throat to induce vomiting.
Saggy and puffy cheeks
Discolored teeth; from throwing up every time after you have binge eaten
You experience very frequent fluctuations in weight

Risk factors with Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa is a very complex psychological issue, and the following factors tend to increase the risk of this disease:

Gender

Women are more likely to suffer from bulimia than men.

Age

Bulimia normally affects people in their late teens and early adulthood.

Biology

Bulimia may also be linked genetically, with evidence that if you have close relatives with this disorder, you are more likely to suffer as well. Deficiency of the chemical serotonin in the brain might also play a leading role.

Media and peer pressure

Media has this tendency to feature skinny models and this adversely affects the youth who tend to be guided by what the media projects.

Sports or other artistic pressures

If you are an actor, or a dancer, there are higher chances of you suffering from Bulimia if you are encouraged to eat less and exercise a lot more to be in shape all the time.

PCOS is a very common problem. The exact nature of the medicines given will depend on your blood test results. However in order to regularise your periods you need to start taking regular hormonal pills at least for the next 6 months. Please read my health tip on PCO. You may find it useful
