lybrate-userji, There is no exercise or asana which is "interesting" Exercise and yoga asanas are both need self motivation and dedication, to do regularly. Simplest of all exercises is brisk walking. Otherwise it is better if you join a gym and do workouts under the guidance of a professional trainer. Plus if you have diabetes, then taking appropriate medication is most vital. Blood glucose should be maintained: Fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If one has excess weight then that is a triger for diabetes. Apart from drugs, diet and weight reduction with exercise is equally important. Thanks.

Hello sir, I am underweight so how can I gain my weight without using supplement?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hello sir,  I am underweight so how can I gain my weight without using supplement?
Hye, Thanks for the query. Firstly understand that weight gain is very dependent on genetics and metabolism. It is important to know that just eating just two heavy meals a day will not help. Eating the right foods at the right time is very important. Eat meals at frequent intervals. You have to eat at least 6 calorie dense meals a day. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Even if you were to take medicines or supplements they will not work in isolation You need to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal.

It requires normally 6 to 8 weeks for healing but during recovery phase at time of 3 rd to 4 th week rehabilitation exercises and non weight bearing gait training may be recommended best wishes.

Hi lybrate-user I believe every day is women’s day. 90% of Indian families start their day with a cup of nice hot brewed coffee and end the day with relishing dinner prepared by a women. A woman plays a key role in the society. But when it comes to their own life they are very tired and stressed looking for a soothing and relaxing time. Neilson survey shows that in INDIA “87% of women are stressed and 82% of women complaint that they have no time to relax”. This stress full life is creating havoc on women’s health. Women play the role of a Mom, Daughter, Daughter in-law, wife, Professional and a responsible citizen. Balancing all these roles and leading a happy and healthy life is not as easy as we think. This needs some homework. Health Surveys shows that there is an increase in infertility cases among working women. The major cause for infertility is Polycystic Ovarian Disorder. That is small water filled cysts are arranged like a chain in ovaries. This prevents ovulation and leads to irregular menstrual cycles. There are several reasons for cysts formation. Stresses, Exposure to environmental pollution, Irregular lifestyle are major causes. Now let us see in detail how to correct these factors and maintain harmony of hormones. Stresses: Stresses vary from person to person depending on their emotional balance. First rate your stress levels on 0-10 scale 0 being no stress and 10 being highly stressed. Write this on a paper and aim to bring this number down. Here are few tips that help to bring down stress levels. Take 5 min in a day as a self assessment time. Then find out what is stressing you more. Write a list of them and find ways to tackle them. Note: Your thought process should be in such a way that you think positively to come out of stress. Never find excuses to stress yourself. Practice deep breathing technique during work hours. For example give a pause and take 10 deep breaths for every one hour of continues work. Smell lavender oil. Add few drops of lavender oil to your napkin or facial tissue and smell it. Lavender oil works well to relieve stress. Aim to eat healthy food. If you are working late hours snack in between. This snack should be rich in protein like nuts or boiled chick pea with salad vegetables. Talk to very near person with whom you can share your emotions and feel relaxed. Communication is the key to solve issues in relationships. Environmental pollution: Everybody is aware of rise in environmental pollution. India has 4 cities ranked among 10 most polluted cities in the World. There are few kinds of pollution which are out of our hands. But few pollutions can be controlled or decreased. A review article in Medspace reported that parabens present in cosmetics especially underarm cosmetics play a crucial role in breast cancer as parabens bind to human estrogen receptors and cause high serum estrogen. This leads to breast cancer. So avoid cosmetics that have parabens. Better go for herbal products. Similarly Bisphenols present in plastics also cause hormonal imbalance. So avoid eating and storing hot foods in plastic containers as they release bisphenols when we place a hot food in plastic containers. Maintain low exposure to air pollution. Wear a mask to your nose to avoid direct inhalation of smoke. Drink clean and filtered water. Especially water contaminated with heavy metals like lead and mercury. So select water filters that can filter these metals. Always go green. Select organic food whenever possible. Detox your body monthly once. Consult a specialist for detox. Never do it on your own. “Environmental Working Group “check their site for safe cosmetic and cleaning products in market. Irregular lifestyle: Last but not least “Lifestyle”. The only proven therapy for PCOD is maintaining a good life style. Please maintain your biological rhythms. Disturbance in your rhythm will create havoc on your metabolism. Maintain regular meal timings. This will keep your hunger and satiety hormones in balance. Regular meal timings will help you to maintain healthy weight. “Food is medicine”. Enjoy your food in limitation. Too much of anything will harm you. Aim to introduce salads to your meal plate. Meal plate should have one variety of green leafy vegetables. This does not include ice berg lettuce. Salads helps to boost your Fibre intake, Vitamin C levels, Folic acid levels, Vitamin E. These are all required to maintain hormonal balance. Aim to include 4-5 servings of low glycemic Index fruits. Like oranges, guava, pomegranate, papaya, kiwi, grapes, water melon. These will boost your anti oxidant levels. Apart from diet lifestyle also includes physical activity. There is strong evidence that 30 min of physical activity 5 days in a week will help you to maintain healthy weight. Physical activity keeps your cortisol hormone in balance and helps to lower stress. It is a fight or flight hormone. If you are overly stressed this hormone levels rise and leads to major hormonal imbalances like PCOD, Hypo Thyroid, Insomnia, Migraines. Healthy food, Physical activity, Proper hydration and Sleep are key points to be checked to maintain healthy lifestyle.

Oral Health And Nutrition

M.B.B.S,C.C.A,D.C.A,AASECT,FPA,AAD,M.I.M.S
General Physician, Gorakhpur
Oral Health And Nutrition

Almost everything you eat and drink has an impact on your oral health, especially your teeth. This impact is not just due to the food's nutritional value, but also because parts of the mouth come in direct contact with the food that is taken. For example, if the teeth come in contact with a compound that has a pH value lower than 5.5, the enamel of teeth can get softened.

The following is a list of the foods, which are good for your teeth:

  1. Dairy products: Milk and most other dairy products are rich in calcium and protein. The cells called osteoblasts absorb calcium and create the protein tissues, which are the building blocks of the skeleton. An added advantage of these foods is that they are low in sugar content, which is beneficial for the teeth.
  2. Water: Fluoridated water is extremely good for bone and dental health. Minerals like chlorine, calcium, phosphorus and fluorine can prevent damage caused by acidic foods.
  3. Dry fruits: Most nuts are protein rich. The processes of biting and chewing also stimulate the salivary glands and saliva helps to clean the mouth and maintain oral health.
  4. Meat: Meat is also high in protein content and so it helps to protect the teeth and replenish the dissolved enamel. Fish and eggs are similarly helpful.

Here is a list of things that you should consume in regulated quantities to maintain dental health:

  1. Citrus fruits: Fruits like lemons, oranges, grapes etc contain citric acid. Acidic foods erode the tooth enamel and so these kinds of fruits should be included in your daily diet in small portions.
  2. Carbonated drinks: Most soft drinks and beverages contain large quantities of sugar. The sugar can be used by the dental plaque (mass of bacteria growing on the inside on the mouth) to produce acids and over time, which gives rise to a thick yellow layer on the teeth, damaging them.
  3. Candied sugar: Foods that are sticky can remain stuck in between the teeth for a very long time and cause decay of the enamel and harm the gums. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Ways To Identify Metabolic Syndrome!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, ACLS, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN RHEUMATOLOGY
General Physician, Jaipur
Ways To Identify Metabolic Syndrome!

Metabolic syndrome refers to a group of conditions that occur together and increase your chances of developing stroke, diabetes, and heart problems. This set of conditions includes high blood sugar, abnormal levels of cholesterol, abdominal fat, and high blood pressure. More importantly, having just any one of these conditions doesn't mean that you suffer from this problem.

What really brings about this condition?

Experts are still not sure as to what causes the development of this condition; the causes and risk factors can be manifold.

Some of the causes can be:

1. Insulin resistance -
 A hormone produced by the pancreas in your body, insulin plays the vital role of helping your body to use the glucose as fuel. The problem of insulin resistance causes your body to produce more of this hormone so as to tackle the rising glucose levels in your body. Closely connected to excess belly fat, it causes the development of diabetes.

2. Overweight or obesity - Instances of obesity can also cause you to develop metabolic syndrome. More specifically, abdominal obesity can see your prospect increasingly significantly. It can bring about problems like insulin resistance and other associated conditions.

3. Abnormal hormone levels - Even the behavior of hormones can affect your chances of developing this health condition. For example, the hormonal disorder like PCOS can cause metabolic syndrome.

4. Unhealthy lifestyle - Having too much of processed foods without an adequate amount of physical activity can increase your prospects of developing metabolic syndrome. Eating a heart-healthy diet, which is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fish can help to curb this problem.

How to identify this health condition?

When it comes to symptoms, this group of disorders doesn't reveal any specific signs but symptoms associated with individual health conditions that make up this group. You can come across signs like an increased waistline, or symptoms associated with diabetes like increased urination, a thirsty feeling, blurred vision, and fatigue.

Nonetheless, you're said to suffer from this problem if you exhibit these characteristics:

  • Abdominal obesity marked by waist size of over 40 inches in men and 35 inches in women
  • Triglyceride levels of 150 and above
  • Blood pressure levels of 130/85 and above
  • Fasting blood sugar measuring 110 and above
  • Good cholesterol levels less than 50 in women and 40 in men
