Avocados

Avocados

Avocados may be fatty, but that doesn't mean they are bad for your health.
In fact, this fruit is a nutritional powerhouse providing numerous potential health benefits. Its creamy texture and rich taste make it a common ingredient in many dishes. It is most well known for being a key ingredient in the Mexican dip 'guacamole'. Because of its high fat content, avocado is also used as a meat substitute in sandwiches and salads. But what makes this fruit so good for you? it is an excellent source of potassium, containing more per weight than bananas. In addition, avocados are rich in vitamin k, vitamin b, vitamin c and vitamin e. They are rich in phytochemicals, which have been reported to help prevent the development of certain cancers. Fats account for around three-quarters of the calorie count of an avocado. Most of it are monounsaturated fat, in the form of oleic acid. Monounsaturated fat is considered to be a 'good fat' which reduces levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers the risk of stroke and heart disease. Keeping cholesterol levels in check is vital for diabetics as they have a much higher risk of cardiovascular disease. The high levels of potassium in avocados is another important nutritional factor for diabetics due to its role in maintaining a healthy heart and regulating blood sugar. Having monounsaturated fats in a diabetic diet is also beneficial for reducing high triglyceride levels and thus improves insulin function and blood glucose levels. All in all, avocado is a very healthy food for those living with diabetes and for people who wish to lower their risk of developing the disease.'

Hello doctor, I am 7 months pregnant and sometime I feel little pain on my stomach pls tell me why this is happening?
Pain in pregnancy at 7 months is most likely to be labor pain, so you should report immediately to the doctor. If the pain is not intermittant, it comes only on jerky movents then it is likely to be round ligament pain. It occurs because your ligaments gets stretched by growing uterus, and with brisk movement or getting up it produces pain. If pain is severe one can take tab. Crocin or parcetamol for pain relief. In the meantime it is better to have per vaginal examination by a gynecologist to check whether you are not going in labor.

What is labour pain? When it comes during pregnancy? How it can be known? What precautions to be followed?
Labour pain starts around 37 to 40 weeks of pregnancy (8.5 to 9 months). It starts with pain in lower tummy and associated with the hardening of the uterus. Pain can radiate to the back. Another most important symptom is passage of thick sticky fluid through vagina. If you have any of these two you should report immediately to the hospital.

Dear lybrate-user, Kindly see the below replies 1) Not necessary, It is possible it is a corpus luteal cyst .that means post ovulation the area has become cystic. 2) There is a chance of pregnancy if it is corpus luteal cyst and not unruptured follicular cyst. It is very difficult to distinguish between the two. 3) If there is no pregnancy you will get periods 4) It is advisable to use 10000 units for rupture next time if you have 1 or two mature sized follicles.

Plz tell me doctor can a thaelesmia minor pt. In pregnancy can take iron supplements.
Thalassaemia minor (carrier) is generally asymptomatic and usually does not present any significant symptoms. Taking iron supplements, unless they have had a blood test showing they are truly low in iron, will only increase the amount of free iron circulating in their bloodstream. Iron overload can be prevented by making sure they do not take iron supplements unless they are low in iron and are under the supervision of their doctor.

My mother is 51 years old, and over the past one year, she has been having cough problems. This seems to happen every two days (sometimes before food, sometimes after). On some of these occasions it is just cough, but on others it leads her to throw up (not necessarily food, sometimes only phlegm). One of the previous doctors she had consulted, recommended she take an endoscopy of esophagus, but she is not comfortable with that. Do these symptoms have anything to do with menopause? is there an alternative to endoscopy? if endoscopy is a must, can it be done with anesthesia? kindly advice. Someone I know from work has consulted with you for their mother who had similar symptoms, hence seeking your guidance.

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Bangalore
Hi . These symptoms don't appear to be related to menopause. It sounds like she has acid reflux disease or laryngopharyngeal reflux disease. There is a simple way to rule this out. Give her an antacid like tab sompraz 40 mg or tab neksium 40 mg empty stomach once in the morning for a week. If her symptoms improve for 2-3 days with over 50% recovery then the diagnosis is likely and she can continue the medications for 3 weeks. If there is no change in her condition then she is recommended to undergo an endoscopy which can be performed under anesthesia if requested to the gastroenterologist.

Are you feeding the baby from both breasts equally. If yes and even then if there is so much difference in the size of breasts then go for ultrasuond of both breast.

One dose of unwanted 72 gives protection for only one sexual act. Now she needs additional dose, which will of course have its side effects. So take care in future.

Achilles Tendon - How To Deal With It

Achilles Tendon - How To Deal With It

Achilles Tendon pain is an orthopedic condition that can originate from tears and ruptures to the AchillesTendon, which is known as one of the strongest and also the longest tendon in the human body. It is a band of tissues that decides the quality of your movements and motions to a great extent, as it connects the heel with the calf. Therefore, any injury to this tendon can decrease the strength and support to the muscles and create a painful situation. So how can you deal with this pain? Read on to know more.

  • Rice Therapy: Rice is a commonly used term by orthopedic specialist. It refers to Rest, Ice, Compression with a bandage, and finally Elevation. The patient must take lots of rest as well as use ice packs to deal with the injury and acute pain. Finally, the area must be compressed with a bandage and kept elevated on cushions.
  • Surgery: For very severe cases, the orthopedic specialist can recommend surgery as well. This kind of surgery aims at reattaching the displaced or ruptured tendon which may have reached such a fate through a sports or any other kind of injury. The doctor may also place your leg in a cast for a few weeks to keep it at complete rest. 
  • Pain Medication: The doctor can also prescribe pain relievers that contain Ibuprofen as well as acetaminophen or even naproxen. These medicines should be taken in moderation as per the doctor's prescription. Usually, this kind of medication is taken only when unbearable pain is experienced by the patient.
  • Thermotherapy or Heat Treatment: The use of heat for chronic pain or even pain that has been ailing for over 48 hours is known as thermotherapy. This therapy uses heating pads and hot water bottles to help relieve the pain. One must be careful while applying anything hot to the site of the injury. Use a towel to wrap the hot water bottle or heating pad so that there is no scalding or leaking on to the skin.
  • Footwear: It is important to prevent continuous injury and pain to the already injured Achilles tendon. To do this, you must wear supportive and comfortable footwear that has heel lifts and other customized orthotics built into the shoes. 

Taking care of Achilles Tendon pain is a matter of taking various precautions and supportive actions that lead to better healing.

Hi, I'm a doing my final year in engineering and lately I've started masturbating and I'm still a virgin. When I masturbate I only simulated the outer walls of the uterus and dared not to touch the hymen thing and now a question raised in my head which bothers me alot its that the hymen is not broken and I masturbate then from where does all the discharge flow out I mean it's blocked by the hymen right? Then from where does it go? Please answer me at the quickest I'm really worried alot.

Lybrate-user this question stuck into your mind now when you started masturbating but why not then when you started having your menstrual periods every month. Discharge also flows out the same way as from where your menstrual blood flows every month. Actually hymen is half moon shaped and small hole one or more than one can be present (it depends upon individual to individual) on the hymen which allows the vaginal and uterine discharges to pass out. I think you got it clear now-----------------------

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Itchy Scalp

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Itchy Scalp

Simple Home Remedies to get rid of itchy scalp

Dry itchy scalp can be a nuisance, especially when you get that itchy feeling in the presence of someone or when white flakes become visible in your hair or on your shoulders. Caused by various reasons such as dandruff, dryness of the scalp, poor care of the hair, viral or fungal infections, poor diet, sebaceous cysts or even stress, itchy scalp can be a big embarrassment. However, you can get rid of this itchy scalp with these simple remedies:

1. Lemon

Lemon has antiseptic properties and proves highly effective in treating itchiness especially the one caused by dandruff.

- Apply lemon juice directly on the scalp for 5-7 minutes and then rinse

- Use diluted lemon juice if you do not have dandruff

- Or you can add yogurt to the lemon juice before applying. Use a mild shampoo to rinse after that.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar can work wonderfully for itchy scalp since it helps to get rid of the fungus and virus that may be the reason for itchiness. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory substance that also balances the scalp’s pH balance helping to relieve dryness and itching.

- In a spray bottle, take equal amounts of water and vinegar and use it to spray directly on your slightly wet scalp or apply with the help of cotton balls

- Shampoo your hair after some time

3. Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera gel is a good moisturizer and can help you to get rid of itching and dryness of the scalp.

- Rub the gel with your fingers directly on the scalp

- After 10-15 minutes, use a mild shampoo to rinse your hair and scalp

4. Onion Juice with Banana and Honey

Onion juice is a powerful remedy for itching. Honey too works incredibly to get rid of itchiness.

- Add some onion juice along with a mashed ripe banana to 2 tablespoons of honey and mix thoroughly

- Apply on the scalp and let it rest for 20 minutes

- Shampoo your hair afterwards to get rid of the white flakes and itchiness

5. Essential Oils

Essential oils like Eucalyptus, Lavender and Neem also work well for relieving itching of the scalp.

- Mix equal portions of the 3 together and apply on the scalp

- Wash after an hour to get a relaxing feel apart from relief from itching and dryness.
