Women with pcos have also been found to have low-grade inflammation, contributing to insulin resistance. The exact cause of pcos, however, is still unknown. Yet, genetics is considered an important factor as pcos seems to run in families. The condition leads to issues like changes in the menstrual cycle, cysts on the ovaries and problems getting pregnant it can cause symptoms like infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excessive facial and body hair growth, weight gain, acne, oily skin, thinning hair or male-pattern baldness, and pelvic pain. The signs and symptoms tend to vary from one individual to another. Home remedies add one teaspoon of cinnamon powder to a glass of hot water. Drink it daily for a few months or until you are satisfied with the results alternatively, you can take this herb in supplement form after consulting your doctor. It is usually suggested to take one capsule (1, 000 mg) three times a day you can also include this spice in your diet by sprinkling cinnamon powder on your cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, cottage cheese, peanut butter sandwich and on other foods. Note: you need not take more than two teaspoons of this spice per day. If you are taking this herb to combat insulin resistance, consult your doctor first as it may lower your blood sugar level. Flaxseed flaxseed can also be used to combat pcos as it helps decrease androgen levels. It contains lignans that increase the production of sex hormone binding globulin (shbg) that binds testosterone in the blood, thereby preventing it from wreaking havoc in the body. Plus, being high in fiber, flaxseed helps slow down glucose metabolism and lower cholesterol levels. The omega-3 fatty acids in this superfood also reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease. For more queries consult privately.

If your wife has regular cycles of 30 days, then having sexual contact from the 10 th to 20 th day are the ovulation days which are good days to get pregnant, apart from that she should be on a balanced diet and regular physical activity.

Hi lybrate-user The day on which you had intercourse was a safe day if her cycles are usually on time. It must be due to some hormonal imbalance or stress that she did not get her period on time. The reason may not be pregnancy as the tests are also negative. If the cycle is of 28 days starting from the 1st day of period. Then the most risky time is from 12-16th day (ovulation time). Before and after these days its safe period. Takecare.

Hi , excessive bleeding during periods is usually due to hormonal imbalance at this age but some time a fibroid or polyp may be responsible so get done -- 1 - ultrasound lower abdomen 2 - blood test for haemoglobin estimation, blood counts, tsh level, 3 - your last menstrual period date 4 - if any contraceptive method you are using please send me all information so I can advise you best possible.

Hi, I have burning sensation and itching around vagina mouth and around my labia for last couple of days. The place does not remain dry no matter how hard I try. No foul smell or thick discharge. I also get vaginal pimples very often. For vaginal pimples I have been given kenozole-bg which I use only when I have a pimple. Just to mention I also have face acne and body acne for which I have done course of doxypal twice in two years. Currently I am on no medication.

Hello, Excessive pimples and burning accompanied with itching denotes Pitta dosha dushti in your blood. Intake of certain diet like, green chillies, spices, vinegar, sea food etc. Raises the level of endotoxins in the blood which then result in these symptoms. I recommend you to reduce these and start consuming dairy products except curd. They are rich source of Omega3 hence prevent the release of these endotoxins in blood.

Replace Those Junk Foods With These Healthy Choices

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Replace Those Junk Foods With These Healthy Choices

Junk food is something you should generally avoid, courtesy to the health problems that they may cause. However, in some cases, when you are hungry you tend to go for junk food items as they are easily available. The other reason is that you don't know what you should opt for if you avoid junk food.

Outlined below are some healthy food options that you may replace junk food with:

  1. Replace ice cream with frozen yoghurt: Ice cream is considered to be laden with sugar that will add a sizeable number of calories, so you may replace that with frozen yoghurt. Yoghurt does not contain sugar and contains probiotic bacteria and protein that are good for your body. The probiotics in yogurt will help in enhancing your digestive system.
  2. Replace caffeine with fresh fruit juices: Caffeine is a known vasoconstrictor, which means it tends to narrow your blood vessels. This leads to problems in blood circulation and can lead to problems, such as erectile dysfunction. Instead consume fresh fruit juices as they are much healthier than coffee. They contain antioxidants that protect your body from free radical damage.
  3. Potato chips with bananas: If your cravings for salted food, such as chips increase then it points to a deficiency of potassium in the body. Instead of reaching for the packet of chips, eat a few bananas. They contain good amounts of potassium which helps to regulate fluid balance in the body.
  4. Eat nuts instead of chocolate: Instead of gorging on chocolates, a healthier option would be to opt for various kinds of nuts, such as almonds and cashews. They contain magnesium which tends to reduce chocolate cravings. They also provide the body with healthy fats and protein which help in building lean muscle mass in the body.
  5. Replace cookies with dry fruits: Cookies contain sugar in large amounts, which has the potential to create havoc on your body. From increasing blood sugar levels to obesity, it can cause serious complications. Opt for dry fruits as they are rich with important nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals that are essential for the human body. Add food such as dates, almonds and apricots to your diet. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

They get hyper from the caffeine and sugar. But some countries look at it differently then others. Europe for instance (especially italy, france and spain) have no problems if there kids want coffee or even wine at a young age. The us is different. We don't quite understand the european philosophy on the subject. I side with the europeans. Basically, kids want what they can't have. There they can have it so the" forbidden apple" is not an issue (no need to sneak around) for it.

How Much Do Your Nutritional Needs Change as You Grow Older?

How Much Do Your Nutritional Needs Change as You Grow Older?

A Quick Guide to Geriatric Nutrition

Special nutritional needs are often required in special circumstances. Unlike adults from 20 to 60, children and elderly people have specific needs as their physical requirements are different. Just like pregnant women need tailor-made diets for their specific needs, children and elderly people also require appropriate diets without too much variation.

The requirement for geriatric or elderly nutrition

As the body ages, certain functions within are slowed down and thus, the processes are not able to completely recuperate and replenish what was lost. Certain functions are affected more than others and hence, need specific nutrients to regenerate.

Tips for Geriatric Nutrition

Let's take a look at some of the specific diet requirements as well as certain items, which should be avoided.

1. Consumption of calcium rich foods - Bones are a part of the human body that tend to suffer a lot of wear and tear and they start showing signs of weakening after 60. It is thus, important to replenish calcium in the body to help the bones get their building blocks. Some examples of calcium-rich foods are almonds and green leafy vegetables like kale. Dairy products are also good as long as the fat content within them is low.

2. Keeping the body hydrated - Although physical activity reduces with age, dehydration can still occur within senior people and thus, it is important that they remain hydrated. Simply drinking water may not be enough and juices or other water-rich foods such as watermelons should be used to supplement for hydration.

3. Lessening sodium within the body - The presence of excess sodium in the body can cause blood pressure to shoot up and result in high blood pressure, which may then further result in more ailments like strokes. It is pertinent that foods rich in sodium such a red meats be lessened or cut out of the diet altogether.

4. Lessening sugar consumption or any other foods that may exacerbate diabetes - Another factor to consider is the consumption of sugar and sugar-filled products. Not just for diabetics, but elderly people have a tendency to develop high blood sugar and hence, it is prudent to reduce sugar intake.

Hye . Thankyou for the query. This is a case of trying to self medicate without correct information and guidance from a professional. The most common high estrogen symptoms in men include: Sexual dysfunction (low libido, decreased morning erections, decreased erectile function) Enlarged breasts. Watch out for these symptoms.

Hi I'm 32 years male, I want to know does sex is safe during pregnancy in first trimester?
Hello, Lybrate user, you may intimate, sexually in pregnancy, even, it helps your partner enjoying more organism, if she is otherwise fit. Your Semen contains prostaglandin a hormone that helps contractions and soften the cervix. During pregnancy, level of Ognamism is high helps the uterus to contract. Rubbing, rolling, or sucking of the nipples releases the hormone oxytocin which cause uterus to contract, smoothly. You should take care of comfortable posture of sexual intimation, of course. Respect, feelings & desire of your partner while preparing for intimation. Tk, care.
