1. Firstly please do not believe advertisements. Do your own research first. 2. Low GI does not mean you can eat anything unlimited. 3. Low GI index - below 55 are prefereble over high GI for diabetic persons. 4. Low GI and more fiber is what you should aim for. 5. Smaller portions and regular meals is what helps. 6. In addition, depending on your day routine you have to balance your calories so that you do not overeat. 6a. Cut down all sugars/Juices/sweets/biscuits/cakes etc. 7. Do exercise and Yoga regularly. 8. Right now your weight is in control. Even pre-diabetes can be brought under control with proper diet and exercise. 9. Try to stabilise this ailment without medicine.

Dear patient, pcod in itself causes hormonal imbalances which causes weight gain. Taking homeopathy with your present medication, will help you to come out of it rapidly and medicines will also be given to reduce weight. Also undergo thyroid profile test once if not done yet. Also share your recent report of confirmed pcod.

Hi One of the simplest and most effective ways to induce sleep is to rub some oil on the scalp and the soles of the feet before going to bed. Use sesame oil, brahmi oil, jasmine oil, or coconut oil and massage gently for a few minutes. Slightly warming the oil before applying is helpful. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take sarpgandha vati 1-1 tab twice a day. Take pranacharya no tens capsule 1-1 twice a day. Avoid spicy food. Junk food. Fermented food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early in the morning.

I have slightly curved in my penis. Whats the reason behind it. Is there any treatment.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
I have slightly curved in my penis. Whats the reason behind it. Is there any treatment.
A curved penis simply can be a result of individual anatomy. The direction that an erect penis takes depends on the proportion of crus (penis under the skin) to exposed penis. Men with a shorter crus, and thus a longer penis, are more likely to have an erection that points downward, while an erect penis that has a longer crus will probably point outward, or even straight up. Sometimes the penis also bends to the left or to the right. I think in your case bending may be due to short crus. In the vast majority of cases, the curve falls well within the norms of most men and should not be a deterrent for a relationship. If, however, your penis has a pronounced curve or bends sharply to the left or right — especially if penetration is impossible or if an erection is painful — you should see a urologist.

Hello. Follow these steps:- 1. Firstly avoid too much spices in your diet. Eat simple food. Too much spices also disturb body. 2. Drink plenty of water. Try to keep body hydrated because water deficiency leads to unhealthy skin. Water deficiency also leads dry skin which lead to itching. 3. Use mild soap. Prefer milk or cream containing soap. 4. Apply good body lotion after bathing. You can apply coconut oil also. 5. Avoid scratching of body. 6. You can take bath with curd twice a week. Apply curd on body and let it for 10 mins. Then rinse off with plain water. Then apply body lotion. It will also give tou some relief. All these will help you. Good luck.

I am a diabetic n taking medicine for this but how do I know that it is type one or type 2 diabetes. ?

I am a diabetic n taking medicine for this but how do I know that it is type one or type 2 diabetes. ?
Hi Mahendra, The basic difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes is that in type 1 diabetes there is no insulin production be the beta cells of the pancreas and it is necessary to take insulin externally to utilize glucose, that is why it is also called Insulin dependent diabetes. While in type 2 diabetes there is defect in insulin functioning or/and insulin secretion, depending upon various conditions type 2 diabetes can be managed well with following proper diet, exercise and medication. Though in some cases patient with type 2 diabetes may also require insulin. Type 2 diabetes is majorly caused by poor lifestyle, excess body and is also hereditary while type 1 diabetes occur due to destruction of beta cells which is a auto immune defect. As per your description it seems that yours is type 2 diabetes.

Night Time Cough - 5 Tips to Manage it

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Night Time Cough - 5 Tips to Manage it

Coughing during the night can really wreak havoc for your sleep and cause inexplicable discomfort in the throat and chest region. Thankfully, you can manage it by soothing your tickling throat as well as sensitive airways before you go to bed at night. 

  1. Drink herbal tea: A mugful of non-caffeinated tea mixed with a teaspoon of honey before going to bed can help you to a considerable extent. This is because any warm liquid has the power to break down the formation of mucus in the throat region and with a bit of honey, the herbal tea becomes even more powerful.
  2. Try to sleep in an inclining position: Gravity is your greatest enemy while combating night-time cough. When you lie down flat on your back at night, all the mucus and dust particles, which you have swallowed all through the day, would accumulate in the throat area and aggravate it making more cough. But you can easily defy gravitational force by piling up some pillows and prop yourself on them while sleeping. You may also keep a wooden block of 4 inches height under your head, which would keep the acids in the stomach so that they don’t come up to irritate your throat.
  3. Make sure you use the steam cautiously: When your airways are dry, it can make you cough harder. Therefore, you may find relief if you take a warm shower or a bath before going to bed. But you have to be sure that you don’t have asthma as steam can prove harmful for you.
  4. Check the level of humidity: Humidifiers are known to soothe the problem of persistent coughing when the surrounding air is dry. But too much of moisture during the night can also make you cough. This is because dust mites, mold and other allergens thrive well in the damp air and they could conspire to make your cough even worse. So, pick up a cheap hygrometer from a hardware store and see that the humidity level stays within 40 to 50 percent.
  5. Equip yourself at night: Keep all the things from drops to water to cough syrup or anything that soothes coughing at your bedside so that you can help yourself in case you wake up in the middle of the night and start coughing.

By following these few tips every day, you can manage the night time cough and have a good night’s sleep without any interruptions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
