Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

MD - Diabetology, MBBS
Diabetologist, Surat
Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

Women tend to develop high levels of blood sugar during their pregnancy (especially within the 24th and 28th weeks), irrespective of whether they already had suffered from diabetes prior to their pregnancy. However, gestational diabetes, if not taken proper care of, might escalate the risks of developing diabetes in the near future for both the mother and the child, accompanied by complications in pregnancy or labor. Gestational diabetes is usually characterized by mild symptoms such as excessive urge to urinate, excessive thirst, blurred vision and fatigue.

Causes:
Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, allows for the utilization of the glucose for energy. The food consumed is broken down by the digestive tract of the body, converting carbohydrates into glucose before releasing it into the bloodstream. The glucose is then absorbed by the cells to be used as an energy source. Now, at the time of pregnancy, the placenta (organ nourishing the fetus) connecting the baby to the blood supply also produces various other hormones in high levels, for instance, estrogen and human placental lactogen. Most of these hinder the normal functioning of insulin in the cells, hence raising the blood sugar count. With subsequent growth of the baby, the placenta keeps on producing more amounts of such insulin resistant hormones to an extent that they are capable of meddling with the development of the baby.

Treatment:
1. Monitoring the blood sugar count at least four to five times a day and keeping it under control might help to ease the complication.
2. A healthy diet consisting of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in the right proportion and limiting sugar or other highly refined carbs meets the nutrition and fiber requirement of the body. Guard against additional weight gain during pregnancy as that hampers the entire process.
3. Exercise or regular physical activities help to normalize blood sugar level by boosting glucose absorption in the cells. Furthermore, exercises also enhance the sensitivity of the cells towards insulin. This means that only a little amount of insulin production by your body would be enough for the transportation of sugar.
4. Medication, If exercise and diet fall inadequate, insulin injections are often administered to control blood sugar count.
5. Keeping the baby under close observation with the help of repeated ultrasound and other tests to record its growth and development is an essential part of the treatment plan. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Here's Why You're At Risk If You Don't Drink Enough Water!

MD - Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
General Physician, Malda
Here's Why You're At Risk If You Don't Drink Enough Water!

Health problems caused by not drinking enough water

Our body is made up of almost 70% water and while we can live without food for a few days at least, it is important to replenish your water needs every day. If you miss drinking enough water even for a day, you will notice a change. And the ill effects of not drinking enough water can be severe and should not be taken lightly. 

You might have to face these 5 health problems if you are not drinking enough water:

  1. Constipation: If your body is not getting enough water, it will not be able to digest well because our bodies need right amount of liquid to process the foods we eat. When the stomach is constipated, digestive juices are secreted in lesser quantity, thus leading to other digestive disorders.
  2. Weight gain: Many a times, we eat or feel hungry just a while after eating. This is not really hunger and actually means that the body needs water. A dehydrated body often sends misleading signals which is misinterpreted as hunger and we end up gaining unnecessary weight.
  3. Cholesterol and changes in blood pressure: When we don't drink enough water, the water reserve in the body gets used up resulting in there not being enough for the capillaries, veins and arteries. This results in blood pressure going high and/or low. Similarly, the cells of the body get dehydrated and in an attempt to stop this, the body starts producing cholesterol more than what's required.
  4. Dryness of the skin and other problems: Apart from through urine, our body also loses water in the form of sweat. This needs to be replenished or the skin starts becoming dry, lips are chapped and we even experience an increase in hair fall. Not drinking enough water also leads to premature aging and graying.
  5. Infections: It is important to urinate frequently because through urine, our body releases toxins which are not needed for the body. If you don't drink enough water, you won't urinate enough and might end up with problems like UTI and cystitis.

Though chances are low it is better to use emergency pills when there is unprotected intercourse. Also do decide for future which method you want to use.

Hello Dr. name the lubricant which is use during in intercourse for vagina and anal sex.

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
Both water based and oil based lubricants can be used together during sexual play. Silicone based lubricants last a very long time, are great for fun in the water and are safe for use with latex condoms. However, they are not suitable to use on silicone sex toys because they will damage the surface.

5 Insanely Easy Ways to Lose Weight Fast

5 Insanely Easy Ways to Lose Weight Fast

The obesity epidemic around the world is getting worse day by day, though people are getting conscious about their health as well and a major portion of the fitness industry has grown around weight loss. It is easier said than done as many people lose their motivation for weight loss somewhere along the journey. There are however, some really easy steps that you can follow to ensure that you achieve your goals without them being too taxing on you.

Let's look at 5 easy ways to lose weight quickly:

1. Take walks, as frequently as possible: Without setting duration, it would be a good idea to incorporate walking into your schedule as often as possible. This will feel like less of a work out, but will still burn off many of the calories.  Here are some things you can practically do:

  • Take stairs whenever possible
  • Do house cleaning chores, such as mopping or cleaning as regularly as possible as these are great calorie burners
  • Park your car a little further away and walk to your destination or meetings
  • If availing public transport get off a few stops earlier and walk to your destination.

2.  Drink water right before meals: This is a great way to reduce portions automatically as drinking water right before a meal will fill up your stomach and result in you feeling not so hungry. Once your meal portions are reduced and continued over a long time this will help you lose weight.

3.  Instead of focusing on foods you don't like, increase foods you like in your diet: This is very true of most diets as people tend to start having cravings when they deny themselves of food. Thus it is advisable to slowly change your diet overtime and incorporate healthy options such as certain fruits or low calorie snacks that you like and slowly replace the unhealthy options.

4. Use TV time as a quick exercise opportunity: If you are sitting in front of the TV, you can start a small regimen of doing a few free hand exercises when the commercials come up. Use everyday objects near you as weight or as support platforms to do exercises while you don't have to pay attention to what's going on screen. 

5. Remember it is the journey rather than the destination, which matters: Many people tend to get engrossed about the end result and give up midway. You should remember that small things done correctly overtime can help you lose weight quickly and help you keep it off which is equally important.

Tips for regular weight lose: increase the quantity of fruits and vegetables and low calorie foods. Avoid intake of too much salt as it may be a factor for increasing body weight. Milk products like cheese, butter etc. And non-vegetarian foods should be avoided as they are rich in fat. Mint is very beneficial in losing weight. A chutney of green mint with some simple spices can be taken with meals. Mint tea also helps. Spices like dry ginger, cinnamon, black pepper etc. Are good for loosing weight and can be used in a number of ways. Regular intake of carrot juice. Avoid rice and potato, which contain a lot of carbohydrates. Among cereals wheat is good. Vegetables like bitter gourd (karela), and bitter variety of drumstick are useful in loosing weight. Honey is an excellent home remedy for obesity. It mobilizes the extra deposited fat in the body allowing it to be utilized as energy for normal functions.

Nutmeg (Jaayfal) Health Benefits
जायफल
स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य की कई समस्‍याओं का हल

अनिंद्रा भगाए -
जायफल अनिंद्रा भगाता है। अगर आप रोज रात को गरम दूध में जायफल का पाउडर डाल कर पीते हैं तो आपको अच्‍छी नींद आएगी।

प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढाए-
भोजन में जायफल मिलाने से स्‍वाद के साथ साथ शरीर की रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता भी बढती है। इसमे बहु सारा मिनरल होता है और इसके अलावा पोटैशियम, कैल्‍शियम, आयरन और मैगनीशियम पाया जाता है।

चेहरे की झुर्रियां मिटाए -
थोड़ा सा जायफल पाउडर पानी या शहद के साथ मिला कर पेस्‍ट बनाया जाए और चेहरे पर लगाया जाए तो चेहरा बिल्‍कुल साफ हो जाता है और कुछ ही दिनों में चमकने लगता है। इससे पिंपल के दाग भी साफ होते हैं।

शीघ्रपतन और नपुंसकता दूर करे -
जायफल को घिस कर दूध में मिलाकर हफ्ते में तीन दिन पीने से नपुंसकता की बीमारी दूर होती है। यौन शक्ति बढ़ाने के लिए भी इसका इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। इसके चूर्ण और तेल को शीघ्रपतन दूर करने में उपयोग में लिया जाता है।

दांत दर्द -
जायफल का तेल दांत दर्द में बहुत लाभकारी है, तभी तो आपने देखा होगा कि ज्‍यदातर टूथपेस्‍ट में दालचीनी और जायफल मिलाया जाता है।

दिमाग तेज करे-
जायफल दिमाग को भी बहुत तेज बनाता है। इसको खाने से आपको कभी एल्‍जाइमर यानी भी भूलने की बीमारी नहीं होगी।
प्राचीन काल के दौरान, रोमन और ग्रीक सभ्यता जायफल का इस्‍तेमाल ब्रेन टॉनिक के रूप में करते थे। ऐसा इसलिए होता था क्‍योंकि जायफल प्रभावी ढंग से मस्तिष्क को उत्तेजित कर सकता हैं। नतीजतन, यह थकान और तनाव को खत्म करने में मदद कर सकता हैं।

पाचन तंत्र दुरुस्‍त करे-
सदियों से जायफल का इस्‍तमाल पाचन तंत्र को ठीक करने के लिये प्रयोग किया जाता आ रहा है। तो ऐसे में सूप में स्‍वाद बढाने के लिये और स्‍वस्‍थ्‍य पेट रखने के लिये जायफल जरुर मिलाएं।

दूध हजम करे -
शिशु का दूध छुड़ाकर ऊपर का दूध पिलाने पर यदि दूध पचता न हो तो दूध में आधा पानी मिलाकर, इसमें एक जायफल डालकर उबालें। इस दूध को थोडा ठण्डा करके कुनकुना गर्म, चम्मच कटोरी से शिशु को पिलाएं, यह दूध शिशु को हजम हो जाएगा।

पेट दर्द सही करे-
पेट में दर्द हो, आद्यमान हो तो जायफल के तेल की 2-3 बूंद शकर में या बताशे में टपकाकर खाने से फौरन आराम होता है।
अगर आप पाचन संबंधी समस्याओं जैसे दस्त, कब्ज, सूजन और पेट फूलना आदि से पीड़ित हैं तो जायफल प्रभावी रूप से आपको राहत प्रदान कर सकता हैं। जायफल का तेल आंतों से अधिक गैस निकाल कर पेट दर्द से राहत देता है। जायफल के सेवन से भूख न लगने की समस्‍या से भी निजात पाई जा सकती है।

जोड़ों का दर्द सही करे-
शरीर के जोड़ों में दर्द होना गठिया यानी सन्धिवात रोग का लक्षण होता है। गठिया के अलावा चोट, मोच और पुरानी सूजन के लिए जायफल और सरसों के तेल के मिलाकर मालिश करने से आराम होता है। इसकी मालिश से शरीर में गर्मी आती है, चुस्ती फुर्ती आती है और पसीने के रूप में विकार निकल जाता है।

नेत्र ज्‍योति बढ़ाए-
अगर आपकी आंखे लगातार कमजोर हो रही हैं तो आपके लिए जायफल बहुत फायेदमंद साबित हो सकता है। इसके लिए पत्थर पर पानी के साथ जायफल को घिसकर लेप तैयार कर लें। इस लेप को आंखों की पलकों पर और आंखों के चारों तरफ लगाने से आंखों की रोशनी बढ़ती है।
