Good morning Doctor, I'm 28 years old & have a baby girl of 7 months. My current FBS is 211.60 & PPBS is 237 (Tested on 30th August) & my gynaecologist has prescribed Metformin 500 mg. However, she has asked me to confirm with a physician. My personal skepticism is, if it would have any adverse effects on milk production or on any other count. In addition to Metformin, I'm on Thyronorm 50 mcg as well. Kindly advise and oblige. Regards.

Do not feed the baby as metformin affects sugar levels of baby too , hence it is not given to pregnant women with Gestational Diabetes. No Metformin to Pregnant or Lactating Mother.

Swimming - Why You Must Hit The Pool?

Swimming - Why You Must Hit The Pool?

According to many fitness experts, swimming can be an effective and rigorous fitness workout for people of all age, and everyone should try to hit the pool every day. While this is a regular regime for some, many are into a misconception that swimming is like child’s play. There are also those who think that swimming is not an effective form of weight loss. But the reality is that swimming is one of the best cardio exercises, and you must include it in your regular fitness regime.

And, in case you are running out of reasons to indulge in swimming, here are a few important points to convince you.

  1. Swimming is good for heart health: Swimming is known to provide an unparalleled conditioning of cardiovascular health if you can practice it with an untainted consistency. Even though other kinds of exercise such as running or cycling can be more effective to boost the levels of metabolism, you should include swimming in cross-training routine. Pushing yourself to swim regularly will improve the overall fitness.
  2. Helps in balancing the structure of muscles: Swimming aids in building longer and leaner muscles which complement the denser muscles produced from weight training. These newly formed muscles also aid in speeding up the metabolism process for keeping the calorie for burning longer.
  3. Swimming is an excellent form of cross-training: Swimming helps in improving the cardiovascular capacity and increase muscle strength. But the reason why swimming is famous among fitness enthusiasts is that swimming offers the much-needed break from the high impact workouts such as weight-lifting, running and basketball. It allows athletes a respite from the regular intensive routine and helps the body to heal properly without compromising the daily fitness sessions.
  4. Swimming helps in improving the overall flexibility of the muscles: Hitting the pool gradually relaxes the major muscle groups in the body and increase flexibility along with stretching it. If you indulge in lactic acid building workouts such as weight-lifting, cycling and running, swimming for half an hour assists in flushing out the toxins and spare the muscles from becoming tight and sore the following day.
  5. Assists in strengthening the core: One of the most prominent reasons why you should hit the pool regularly is that it helps in improving the core body strength. This is due to utilisation of the major muscle groups at the same time. Even though about 70 percent of the body’s effort rises from the upper portion, moves such as fin and kickboard can offer an excellent lower body workout.

To sum up, these benefits are definite to compel anyone to consider swimming on a regular basis and improve the quality of life without hurting the muscles. And in no time, you would start enjoying it too!" If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

It is not normal to have periods for such long time otherwise you will become anaemic. Consult a gynaecologist. She will advise you certain blood tests and an ultrasound may also be required.

BODY TYPES & NUTRITION

BODY TYPES & NUTRITION

Not everybody’s created equal. Before you start your nutrition regimen, its always a good idea to figure out your Body Type. This will help you tailor your diet better and set realistic and attainable goals.


There are 3 basic human body types:

Ectomorph: They are distinguished by a lack of much fat or muscle tissue.

Mesomorph : This is marked by a well developed musculature.

Endomorph :  This is characterized by a preponderance of body fat.

This is how the 3 body types look like:


Everybody is different since we all have different genetic and cultural traits. If everyone ate the same things and started exercising similarly, we would not look the same. This is because each person’s genetic inheritance influences their bone structure, body size, shape, and weight differently.

Thus, every body type should eat differently as per what appeals to them. This will not only maintain one’s healthy weight but also prevent any kind of eating disorders.


ECTOMORPHS:

Ectomorphs are individuals characterized by smaller bone structures and thinner limbs. They are characterized by:

Narrow hips and clavicals
Small joints (wrists and ankles)
A thin build
Stringy muscle bellies
Long limbs
Proper nutrition is very important, especially for those who consider themselves as “Ectomorphs”. It typically means that they have a faster metabolism , a tough time gaining body weight and higher overall caloric needs.

An ectomorph must typically start his or her diet plan by following the main principles for big gains in muscle size and strength.

As an Ectomorph, your ideal nutrition consists of about 55% of complex carbohydrates , 30% good quality proteins and 15% healthy fats.

Ectomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

Avoid fatty foods, especially animal fat, cold cuts, mayonnaise, full-fat dairy, rich desserts, packaged foods, chips.

As an Ectomorph, the ideal nutrition consists of about 55% of complex carbohydrates (whole grains, rice, nuts all vegetables), approx. 30% quality proteins (whey, chicken, eggs), and up to 15% healthy fats cold-pressed virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil and good omega 3 sources like fish and sea food.


MESOMORPHS

Mesomorphs have a medium sized bone structure and athletic body, and if they’re active, they usually have a considerable amount of lean mass. They are characterized as follows:

Wide clavicles
A narrow waist
Thinner joints
Long and round muscle bellies
As a mesomorph, you are likely to put on muscle easily and also easy to gain and lose body weight. However,  mesomorphs yet need a targeted diet plan that helps them avoid fat gain and improve overall health.

BALANCE  is very important for a mesomorph, who falls between an ectomorph and an endomorph. A typical diet for mesomorphs should comprise of 45% complex carbohydrates, 35% good quality proteins and up to 20% healthy fats.

Mesomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

Avoid fatty foods (full-fat dairy, fatty meats, cold cuts, mayonnaise, very rich desserts,) and minimize as much as possible refined carbohydrates (sugars and white flour products), as they cause rapid weight gain triggering a fat-storage metabolism.

As a Mesomorph, you should eat 3 smaller meals favoring foods high in quality protein (whey, chicken, eggs) and complex carbohydrates (leafy greens and non starchy vegetables).

Approx. 45% complex carbohydrates, 35% quality proteins and up to 20% healthy fats; use cold-pressed virgin olive oil and flaxseed oil in salads and get used to cooking with rice bran oil.

Include fish and seafood, as they are good omega 3 sources-omega 3 and weight loss connection is well-known.

In between meals get a healthy snack: fruits (except the sweet ones, like bananas, pineapple, grapes, mango, watermelon), raw almonds, plain yogurt or various smoothies with the right foods for you, as above.

ENDOMORPHS

Endomorphs have a larger bone structure with higher amounts of total body mass and fat mass. They tend to be naturally less active and thus have more tendency to store energy as fat. Thus, they have a particularly easy time gaining weight but hard to shed kilos. The main characteristics of a Endomorph is:

They look blocky
Wider and thicker joints
Wider hips than the clavicles
Shorter limbs
Out of all the three body types, Endomorphs have the greatest tendency towards roundness. Being an endomorph, obesity is very common in males in females.

“Apple shaped obesity” is more commonly seen in males where there is excess fat in and around the belly, while “Pear shaped obesity” is commonly seen in females with excess fat on the hips and buttocks.

Endomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

As an Endomorph, your nutrition for losing weight should be roughly up to 30% complex carbohydrates (starchy vegetables, brown rice, whole grains), about 45% quality protein (chicken breast, whey protein) and about 25% healthy fats: omega 3 sources (fish, seafood) and ricebran oil, which helps to increase your sluggish metabolism. Also, to keep your metabolic rate up, divide your daily meals into smaller portions so that you have something to eat handy every 2-3 hours.

Avoid as much as you can all types of sugar (including all fruits except berries) and simple carbohydrates like white flour products and pasta, white rice, potatoes, because they cause a rapid rise of your blood sugar level, which, in turn triggers the release of insulin, the fat-storage hormone. Never end your meals feeling completely full.

Endomorphs typically do best on a higher fat and protein intake with carbohydrate intake being controlled and properly timed (e.g., after exercise). More fat and protein, less carbohydrate.

A nutrient distribution for this body type might be around 25% carbs, 35% protein, and 40% fat.

KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE – YOUR DAILY NEEDS ARE AS IMPORTANT AS YOU ARE !!

In most of the female who are actively feeding the baby.. naturally (our body has that mechanism) don't have periods... and by that way they don't conceive by mistake... so it works as natural contraception... so the periods may not appear till you are feeding... The drowsiness and stomach ache might be of some other reasons... will need more data...

you can plan your pregnancy now if you are sure about the reason for miscarriage and if it was infection which must have been treated by now except for rubella cases where doctors advise to wait for six months as live vaccine virus remains in the system for few months if results were negative for infections, this time you may be lucky to have no complications

The best and safest way a woman can do an abortion herself until the 12th week of pregnancy is with the use of two medicines called mifepristone (also known as the abortion pill, ru 486, mifegyn, mifeprex), and misoprostol (also known as cytotec, arthrotec, oxaprost, cyprostol, mibetec, prostokos or misotrol). If you live in a country where there is no access to safe abortion services and you would like to obtain a medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol, please go to women on web (www.womenonweb.org).

To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.

Welcome to Urogyn IVF Centre, Rohini, Delhi. I am Dr Surbhi Gupta, IVF and surrogacy specialist. Nowadays, infertility has become a very common problem in the society and it is rising day by day. It is accepted one and all. In addition to other modalities of infertility treatment, surrogacy is the latest and ultimate tool for infertility couple. In surrogacy, another woman carries and delivers a baby for the couple who wants to have a baby. In surrogacy, we take a sperm from the biological father, an egg from biological mother, we fertilise outside the womb in a lab and this developing embryo, and we transfer in the surrogate mother for nine months. She gives the nourishment for nine months. This foetus is not biologically or genetically connected to the surrogate mother. Surrogate mother gets adequate compensation by the end of this process. This complete procedure is lawful. It is a very complex and mature procedure. It is required a teamwork. In this team, main infertility specialist, gynaecologist, IVF specialist, anaesthetist, sonologist, lab technician, embryologist, counsellor, psychologist, and surrogate agencies are required.

At Urogyn, we provide this complete system under one roof in a very mature fashion. If you want to go for surrogacy, visit us at Urogyn and give us the opportunity to serve you through Lybrate.

Thank you.
