Tips To Help You Reduce The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

Tips To Help You Reduce The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

Here are some tips to help you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes.

Check your risk of diabetes. Take the life! risk assessment test and learn more about your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. A 12+ score indicates that you are at high risk and may be eligible for the life! program - a free victorian lifestyle modification program that helps you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Manage your weight. Excess body fat, particularly if stored around the abdomen, can increase the body’s resistance to the hormone insulin. This can lead to type 2 diabetes.

Exercise regularly. Moderate physical activity on most days of the week helps manage weight, reduce blood glucose levels and may also improve blood pressure and cholesterol.

Eat a balanced, healthy diet. Reduce the amount of fat in your diet, especially saturated and trans fats. Eat more fruit, vegetables and high-fibre foods. Cut back on salt. 

Limit takeaway and processed foods. convenience meals are usually high in salt, fat and kilojoules. It's best to cook for yourself using fresh ingredients whenever possible.

Limit your alcohol intake. Too much alcohol can lead to weight gain and may increase your blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Men should have no more than two standard drinks a day and women should have no more than one. 

Quit smoking. Smokers are twice as likely to develop diabetes as non-smokers.

Control your blood pressure. Most people can do this with regular exercise, a balanced diet and by keeping a healthy weight. In some cases, you might need medication prescribed by your doctor.

Reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. Diabetes and cardiovascular disease have many risk factors in common, including obesity and physical inactivity.

See your doctor for regular check-ups. As you get older, it's a good idea to regularly check your blood glucose, blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels.

Babies between 2-6 months often don't pass stool for up to 1 week. If stool is soft and baby is breast feeding, check for weight gain. If growth is normal, don't need to do anything further. Thanks.

Nutrition For Expectant Mothers

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Jaipur
Nutrition For Expectant Mothers

A. Nutrition deserves special attention during pregnancy because of increased demand and specific role of different nutrients for the baby during pregnancy. 
B. A woman whose diet is adequate before pregnancy is usually able to come out with full term pregnancy 
Without elaborate modifications of her diet and lifestyle. For example, in diabetes, incidence of structural defects can be reduced to nil by bringing the blood glucose level under good control couple of months before conceiving.
C. Maternal nutrition taken during pregnancy are very important in supporting breastfeeding. Breast milk is best and complete food for baby during first four months as it also provides antibodies for protection against many infections. 
D. Undernourished mothers are prone to delivery before nine months. 
So, take good care of your health during pregnancy.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - A Guide!

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - A Guide!

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is among the most common neurobehavioral disorders presenting for treatment in children and adolescents. ADHD is often chronic with prominent symptoms and impairment spanning into adulthood. ADHD is often associated with co-occurring disorders including disruptive, mood, anxiety, and substance abuse. The diagnosis of ADHD is clinically established by review of symptoms and impairment. The biological underpinning of the disorder is supported by genetic, neuroimaging, neurochemistry and neuropsychological data. Consideration of all aspects of an individual’s life needs to be considered in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. 

Multimodal treatment includes educational, family, and individual support. Psychotherapy alone and in combination with medication is helpful for ADHD and comorbid problems. Pharmacotherapy including stimulants, noradrenergic agents, alpha agonists, and antidepressants plays a fundamental role in the long-term management of ADHD across the lifespan. 

The management of ADHD includes consideration of two major areas: non-pharmacological (educational remediation, individual and family psychotherapy) and pharmacotherapy.

I personally support Psychotherapy. Specialized educational planning based on the child’s difficulties is necessary in a majority of cases. Since learning disorders co-occur in one-third of ADHD youth, ADHD individuals should be screened and appropriate individualised educational plans developed. Educational adjustments should be considered in individuals with ADHD with difficulties in behavioral or academic performance. Increased structure, predictable routine, learning aids, resource room time, and checked homework are among typical educational considerations in these individuals. Similar modifications in the home environment should be undertaken to optimize the ability to complete homework. For youth, frequent parental communication with the school about the child’s progress is essential. 

Symptoms in children and teenagers 

The symptoms of ADHD in children and teenagers are well defined, and they're usually noticeable before the age of six. They occur in more than one situation, such as at home and at school. The main signs of each behavioural problem are detailed below:

  1. Inattentiveness: having a short attention span and being easily distracted making careless mistakes – for example, in schoolwork appearing forgetful or losing things being unable to stick at tasks that are tedious or time-consuming appearing to be unable to listen to or carry out instructions constantly changing activity or task having difficulty organising tasks 

  2. Hyperactivity and impulsiveness: being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings constantly fidgeting being unable to concentrate on tasks excessive physical movement excessive talking being unable to wait their turn acting without thinking interrupting conversations little or no sense of danger 

These symptoms can cause significant problems in a child's life, such as underachievement at school, poor social interaction with other children and adults, and problems with discipline. 

Related conditions in children and teenagers 

Although not always the case, some children may also have signs of other problems or conditions alongside ADHD, such as: 

  • anxiety disorder – which causes your child to worry and be nervous much of the time; it may also cause physical symptoms, such as a rapid heartbeat, sweating and dizziness 

  • oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) – this is defined by negative and disruptive behaviour, particularly towards authority figures, such as parents and teachers 

  • conduct disorder – this often involves a tendency towards highly antisocial behaviour, such as stealing, fighting, vandalism and harming people or animals 

  • depression 

  • sleep problems – finding it difficult to get to sleep at night, and having irregular sleeping patterns 

  • autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) – this affects social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour 

  • epilepsy – a condition that affects the brain and causes repeated fits or seizures 

  • Tourette’s syndrome – a condition of the nervous system, characterised by a combination of involuntary noises and movements called tics 

  • learning difficulties – such as dyslexia Symptoms in adults In adults, the symptoms of ADHD are more difficult to define. This is largely due to a lack of research into adults with ADHD. 

ADHD is a developmental disorder; it's believed that it can't develop in adults without it first appearing during childhood. But it's known that symptoms of ADHD often persist from childhood into a person's teenage years, and then adulthood. Any additional problems or conditions experienced by children with ADHD, such as depression or dyslexia, may also continue into adulthood. By the age of 25, an estimated 15% of people diagnosed with ADHD as children still have a full range of symptoms, and 65% still have some symptoms that affect their daily lives. The symptoms in children and teenagers, which are listed above, is sometimes also applied to adults with possible ADHD. But some specialists say that the way in which inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness affect adults can be very different from the way they affect children. For example, hyperactivity tends to decrease in adults, while inattentiveness tends to get worse as the pressure of adult life increases. Adult symptoms of ADHD also tend to be far more subtle than childhood symptoms. 

Some specialists have suggested the following list of symptoms associated with ADHD in adults: 

  • carelessness and lack of attention to detail 

  • continually starting new tasks before finishing old ones 

  • poor organisational skills 

  • inability to focus or prioritise 

  • continually losing or misplacing things 

  • forgetfulness 

  • restlessness and edginess 

  • difficulty keeping quiet and speaking out of turn 

  • blurting out responses and often interrupting others 

  • mood swings, irritability and a quick temper 

  • inability to deal with stress 

  • extreme impatience 

  • taking risks in activities, often with little or no regard for personal safety or the safety of others – for example, driving dangerously 

Additional problems in adults with ADHD As with ADHD in children and teenagers, ADHD in adults can occur alongside several related problems or conditions. One of the most common conditions is depression. Other conditions that adults may have alongside ADHD include: 

  • personality disorders – conditions in which an individual differs significantly from an average person, in terms of how they think, perceive, feel or relate to others 

  • bipolar disorder – a condition that affects your moods, which can swing from one extreme to another 

  • obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) – a condition that causes obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviour 

The behavioural problems associated with ADHD can also cause problems such as difficulties with relationships, social interaction, drugs and crime. Some adults with ADHD find it hard to find and stay in a job. If you notice any of the above in your child or yourself , it is worth making the effort and spending some time and money to have your child and or yourself assessed on a priority basis as ADHD causes neural changes in the brain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Upto six months of age, exclusive breast feeding is recommended. Even water should not be offered to the baby. The mother should drink extra water/liquids like juices/soupsetc and keep herself well hydrated for optimum milk production. Also she should take a wholesome diet and never worry that her milk is not sufficient for the baby. If the baby is passing urine frequently, passing stool 6-10 times per day and gaining weight, breast milk production is enough.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, Advanced diploma in counselling psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Now a days there are many ways to deal dyslexia. (1) first, we have to confirm its dyslexia, because sometimes at this age it is normal that some children may be slow to pick up but later they caught up. (2) if confirmed that the child has dyslexia then you can go for learning disability certificate. (3) then you can go for remedial teaching which takes care of such children.

Improper nutrition will lower your child's ability to fight infection. A 10 month old child needs vitamins, iron and proteins which cannot be provided by mother's milk alone. Avoid giving him ice creams, cold drinks etc give him dalia/rice khicdi with dal, vegetables and curd. Give suji/rice kheer, custard, yogurt. Give him fruits specially banana, apple, anar and other seasonal fruits he can now have 3proper meals. Try variety of things without being disheartened. Parenting is a tough job. All the best.

Better to screen for bronchitis or asthma --> wait for 3 more days and then also doesn't reduce then get" peak flow metry" done at pediatrician's clinic and know the response of bronchodilator medicines in form of nebulisation, I think it would cure the problem.

Weight is apparently alright. Need to know his birth weight and immunisation status. If he has no other symptoms, feeling warmth in soles and palms is not of any significance. You can ask more doubts with detailed history.
