I have been suffering for 1 week side breast pain near arm pit while sleeping my age is 25 years old.
Hello- If the breast pain is associated with your menses then it is normal and is due to hormonal changes during menses. However a pain lasting for more thn two weeks might be due to an underlying breast lump and should be ruled out by going to a nearby gynecologist. Don't risk it, better be on the safe side.

Abdominal pain is a common side effect of the tablet. Try stopping the tablet and see if the pain reduces. If your doctor prescribed the tablet you should check up because long term use of these tablets can cause serious health issues.

Everything You Need to Know About Graves' Disease!

Everything You Need to Know About Graves' Disease!

The body has multiple chemicals called hormones, which regulate many of its functions. Increased or decreased levels of these hormones affect various functions including metabolism, growth and sexual functions. Thyroxin produced by the thyroid (situated in the front of the neck) is one such hormone, which has a significant role to play in metabolism.

Graves’ disease is one of the main causes of hyperthyroidism, where there is excessive production of thyroid hormones. Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder, wherein the body reacts against its own tissues. It is very common in women than men, especially after 20 years of age. Family history also has a strong correlation in developing Graves’ disease. The high levels of thyroid hormone increase the rate of metabolism, thereby altering weight, mental energy levels, physical stamina, and also mood.

Thyroid hormone is related to metabolism and more amount of it lead to higher metabolism. This causes the following symptoms.

  1. Intolerance to heat
  2. Excessive sweating
  3. Nervousness and anxiety
  4. Inability sleep, as the mind is always excited
  5. Increased appetite (sometimes despite weight loss) due to higher metabolism
  6. Irregular menstrual cycles
  7. Palpitations (rapid, loud heartbeat)
  8. Irregular heartbeats (tachyarrhythmia)
  9. Fine tremors of the extended arms
  10. Breast enlargement in men, known as gynecomastia
  11. Extreme moodiness, causing irritability and anger
  12. Inability to focus and concentrate
  13. General fatigue and shortness of breath with any exertion
  14. Increased frequency of bowel movements

In addition, the eye symptoms are quite diagnostic including:

  1. Protrusion of the eyes (exophthalmos), giving an impression that they are going to fall out
  2. Double vision
  3. Excessive tearing
  4. Increased irritation in the eyes

Diagnosis: The first symptom would be the presence of an enlarged thyroid gland (front of the neck above the collarbone), and the some of the above symptoms would be present.
In addition, tests to check for thyroid gland functioning including T3 and T4 levels would reveal increased amounts of hormone in the blood stream.
As a confirmatory test, the radioactive iodine uptake test also is done, which will indicate increased uptake by the thyroid gland. This indicates that the gland is functioning at an increased pace and requires additional iodine for the production of thyroid hormones.

Treatment: There are two approaches to it, one to control the symptoms and the other to control the thyroid gland per se.

  1. Beta blockers are very useful in controlling rapid heart rate and anxiety.
  2. Prednisone may be used to control eye irritation and swelling
  3. Antithyroid drugs are used to control the production of thyroid
  4. Radioactive iodine is given orally to control excessive thyroid production
  5. In severe cases, thyroid gland may be surgically removed partially or completely

Graves’ disease is not life-threatening and once symptoms are controlled, the patient’s quality of life improves drastically.

Oh my God lybrate-user she is really malnourished child. Due to this her immunity is low and she is having subclinical infection. Give her proper nourishing diet inclusive of fresh fruits, vegetables,dry fruits and milk. Ask her use vaginal wash to clean her private parts while bathing. If she is not having any foul smell, itching or urinary complaints then these measures are enough to give her relief otherwise see a gynaecologist and examined her properly and take medicines.

Calcium Benefits, Sources , Side Effects In Hindi - कैल्शियम के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

Calcium Benefits, Sources , Side Effects In Hindi - कैल्शियम के स्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान

कैल्शियम हमारे शरीर के लिए बहुत ही आवश्यक खनिजों में से एक है. कैल्शियम की कमी मानव शरीर में कई बीमारियों को जन्म दे सकती है. हमारे शरीर का ढांचा हमारे हड्डियों से ही मिलकर बना है. हमारी चलने फिरने से लेकर सारी गतिविधियों के लिए हमारी हड्डियाँ आवश्यक हैं. इनकी मजबूती भी आवश्यक है. इसके लिए यानी हड्डियों को मजबूत बनाने के लिए कुछ चीजों का पालन करना बेहद आवश्यक है. कैल्शियम हमारी हड्डियों को मजबूत बनाने के लिए बहुत ही जरूरी है. कैल्शियम हर उम्र के इंसान के लिए, चाहे बच्चे, बूढ़ा और जवान सब के लिए जरूरी है, खास कर महिलाओं के लिए. महिलाओं में कैल्शियम की सबसे अधिक कमी होती है, क्योंकि महिलाओं में मासिक स्राव और प्रसव के समय शरीर से अधिक मात्रा में कैल्शियम नष्ट होता है. तो आइए कैल्शियम के स्त्रोत, फायदे और नुकसान केबारे में विस्तारपूर्वक जाने और इसे समझने की कोशिश करें.
कैल्शियम के स्रोत
कैल्शियम की कमी को हम अपने खान पान के माध्यम से दूर कर सकते हैं. कैल्शियम के अच्छे और प्राकृतिक स्रोत दूध, पनीर, दही, पत्तेदार सब्जियां, ब्रोकली, टमाटर, गाजर, अरबी, मूली और पत्तागोभी, मटर, फ़लियां, सीताफल, तुरई, लहसुन, संतरा, अनानास, पपीता, लीची, जामुन, अमरूद, अनार, अंगूर, केला, खरबूजा, पिस्ता, बादाम, खजूर, मुनक्का, सोयाबीन, दालें, चना, राजमा, मूंग, रागी, तिल, आंवला, सूर्यमुखी के बीज, मूंगफ़ली, सिंघाड़ा आदि हैं.
कैल्शियम से होने वाले फायदे
कैल्शियम हमारे शरीर के लिए बहुत ही जरूरी होता है. कैल्शियम हमारें हड्डियों और दांतों को मजबूत बनाने में मदद करता है. कैल्शियम हमारे नाखूनों को मजबूत रखने के लिए भी जरूरी है. उम्र बढ़ने के साथ-साथ हमें कैल्शियम हड्डियों की खनिज के लिए आवश्यक होता है. ह्रदय को अच्छे तरीके से काम करने तथा नसों और रक्त के थक्के जमने में भी कैल्शियम बहुत आवश्यक है.
हमारे शरीर में पाए जाने वाल कैल्शियम का 99% मात्रा हड्डियों और दांतों में पाया जाता है. बाकी कैल्शियम हमारे रक्त, मांसपेशियों और अन्य ऊतकों में होती है. कैल्शियम हड्डियों को मुलायम तथा उनमें दर्द और ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस को रोकने में मदद करता है. गर्भावस्था के दौरान पैर में होने वाले खिंचाव और हाई बीपी को कम करने में कैल्शियम मदद करता है. कैल्शियम उच्च कोलेस्ट्रॉल, उच्च रक्तचाप, बच्चों में उच्च फ्लोराइड के स्तर को नियंत्रित करता है.मधुमेह रोगी, स्तनपान कराने वाली महिला, स्त्रियों में मासिक चक्र तथा प्रसव और गर्भ में पल रहे शिशु के लिए कैल्शियम बहुत हो फायदेमंद होता है.
कैल्शियम के नुकसान
हर चीज में एक निश्चित संतुलन जरुरी है. क्योंकि जैसे ही किसी चीज में संतुलन में गड़बड़ी आएगी आपको उसका नुकसान उठाना पड़ता है. हलांकि ये सही है कि कैल्शियम हमारे लिए एक बेहद आवश्यक खनिज पदार्थ है. लेकिन इसका इस्तेमाल करने पर कुछ सावधानियां बरतनी पड़ेंगी. जैसे कि इसकी अधिक मात्रा का इस्तेमाल न करें. इस की अधिक मात्रा का सेवन कभी कभी हमारे लिए हानिकारक हो सकता है. शरीर में कैल्शियम की अधिक मात्रा से गुर्दे की पथरी हो सकती है. इसके अलावा और भी कई ऐसी समस्याओं का सामना आपको करना पड़ सकता है. इसलिए यदि आप अनावश्यक परेशानियों से बचना चाहते हैं तो आपको इसे एक सिमित मात्रा में ही इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए. किसी भी प्रकार की समस्या होने पर विशेषज्ञों की राय भी अवश्य लेनी चाहिए.
