My wife is 22 weeks pregnant with TWINS. Medically everything is fine. My doubt is that one of doctors opinion is that you should not have sex because twin pregnancy is a risky pregnancy. Now I am confused, whether to have sex or not?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
There is no evidence to suggest that sex is contraindicated in pregnancy including twins. But because complications in twins are more like preterm labour and mechanical discomfort sometimes doctors suggest it is better to avoid.

I am taking groundnut alternate days in a week. I am a diabetic patient for last 10 years and taking medicine regularly. I have adoubt that intake of groundnut will increase blood sugar level high. I am aged 62 years. Please clear the doubt.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is that ground nuts taken in small quantity, do not increase blood sugar level. They provide fair amount of protein and fats. There is hardly any carb. You have not mentioned the quantity of intake, that is important. About 30 g a day is fine. Plus having a tight sugar control is also very necessary. If your diabetes is in check, meaning fasting nearer 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7, then it is good.

Mouth smelling I can't understand the reason behind Is it because of acidity or some other reason.

MBBS
General Physician,
Generally bad breath is due to improper oral hygiene. Do brush your teeth twice daily. You may use mouth wash, many available in the market, I suggest listrin. Oral and/or dental infections may also cause, for which you need to consult your dentist. Regards.

There few thing I want to make you aware... First if you have viral fever... then Azithro has very less to do with your sickness.. doctor just prescribe that you may not catch a secondary bacterial infection.. second thing Dolo is paracetamol which only decreases the fever for few hours and will never cure.. There are no antiviral medicine in allopathy and it usually being self limiting goes on itself if not complicated.... But the homoeopathic medicine are perfectly capable of curing it in time and also shortening it duration and also preventing any complications.. Better consult for good homoeopathic prescription...

In Allopathy, anti-histaminics or immunosuppressant medicines like steroids are used which only give temporary relief, with the problem returning once the medicine is stopped. On the other hand, during Homeopathy treatment of allergy is cured by strengthening the immune system and the symptoms subside on their own. At the same time, it needs to be understood that this is purely natural allergy treatment. No steroids or anti allergic medicines are used. The immunity is strengthened by Homeopathy instead of being suppressed as happens with allopathic treatment. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

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&#x2019;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.

Hello lybrate-user, it is unfortunate that you are suffering from varicose veins. There are a number of options available for treating - surgery, sclerotherapy, lasers etc. If you are not keen on these treatments you can opt for stockings. In market there are two types of stockings - one which we get in most medical stores are called support stockings - they do not give sufficient compression for varicose veins. The other is usually available in surgical stores. They are called class ii compression stockings. These class ii stockings are usually prescribed if your arteries are fine. They provide up to 30mmhg pressure at ankle level which will prevent symptoms of varicose veins and also prevent complications. The stockings are available in thigh length and knee length. More than the brand the size of the stockings are important. Please make sure that the size is appropriate for you. Cotton stockings are more comfortable - but little bit more costly than synthetic ones. Hope this helps you.
