Dear , I can understand. I suggest you not to worry much. There are many people out there with social anxiety disorder. Many of them are able to manage their day to day activities. Many of them are cured. I am sure, you will also be cured of your problem if you approach the problem positively. I suggest you one or two online counseling sessions and psychotherapy techniques should help you. Please post a private question to me. Take care.

Hello doctors. Good Evening. Am a 31 years old private sector employee & also a father of 2 years old sweet daughter. Am facing with some unwanted back of the mind fear which i don't know about but can realize it's effecting my carrier along with daily life. Need your suggestion on this pls how to overcome from such situation.

Have you had this fear before, especially during your late adolescence? If that is the case it may have some earlier origins, due to some trauma in your life. Even so, you can do several things to combat it and live a normal life and career: talk to a counselor regularly and see what you identify as its source and its modus operandi in your life. Do regular and vigorous exercise daily. Sleep well and eat well too. Attend some emotional management course with a professional. Take some multivitamins with some calcium tablets, the combination will de-stress you. Reduce the pressure in your life both at home and at work. Life is full of difficulties. Those who are good at responding to it by discipline will overcome the challenges that life poses.

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

MD - Diabetology, MBBS

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

According to most experts, Depression and Diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Dear lybrate user, it is very difficult to assess or diagnose with just this much information. I suggest that you see a psychiatrist or homeopathy doctor to further assess your overall condition and give you medications accordingly. 1. Besides this, please start regular exercise so that you become mentally and physically healthier. 2. You can make healthier food choices by having more fruits and vegetables, fish, eggs, proteins for optimal performance of the body and mind. Reduce junk, fried, sugary, processed and refined foods because they are linked to quick aging of the body and mind due to chemical, free radicals etc. 3. Meeting up regularly with friends, having fun and light hearted conversation help both mind and body to relax which is important for all of us. Go for long walks, picnic, outdoor activities to relax and enjoy. 4. Have a hobby of your own where you can feel creative and satisfied by the outcomes. This is very essential for anyone who feels that their life is boring and unproductive. 5. Sleeping for 6-7hours every night will repair and heal any tiredness and cellular damage to the brain. You will feel refreshed and hopeful at the beginning of each day. Going out in the sun is good for optimal brain function.

I have fever and cough it is too worry matter for this and too much tension so just help me so soon plz.
Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also soak a washcloth in cool tap water, wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

I am in a relationship with my girlfriend for the last 2 years. Both of us were in India till now. And now she would be going to Germany next month for PhD. Owing to the time difference between India and Germany we would be getting hardly 2 hours everyday, due to our busy schedule. These thoughts of separation has sent her in a depression and this is taking a toll on our relationship. Please suggest us what to do?

Dear , please understand she is not depressed. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. She may not be mature enough to solve the problem fast. But it will be solved as time passes. You told that her depression takes the toll in your relationship. That may not be the case. She can always choose not to go to germany if she really loves you. She has to decide, whether career or you. Even if she chooses career and goes to germany, once there, her disappointment will be short lived. Being in conflict is the problem. I suggest you to advice your girl friend to consult me online. One or two counseling sessions should set her mind straight thinking. Take care.

Indecisiveness signifies significant underlying anxiety. So please tell me, do you feel worried all the time about about multiple issues ranging from day to day small problems to slightly bigger ones also? how is your sleep? in addition loss of self confidence also signifies anxiety. Now the solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

Hi acne is a very common problem now a days. It is usually due irregular unhealthy life style, poor sleeping habits, stress, excessive use of cosmetics etc. Acne scar usually results bocz of continuous touching, squeezing the acne. To get rid of oily skin wash your face 2-3 times throughout the day. You can use a good scrub atleast once in 15 days. Stop touching, squeezing the acne as it will reduce the scar and prevent it frm spreading. Start consuming diet rich in proteins like sprouts, green leafy vegetables, fish, and seasonal fruits. Consumption of green tea is also a gud option as it is full of antioxidants. Food rich in antioxidants and omega3 is also a good option. You can even apply a mixture of 2-3 pinch of cinnamon powder and 1 tsp of honey. Apply evenly over the face leave it for 10 mins and wash it with luke warm water. This will help to reduce acne and will control the oil.

Hello Doctor, my cousin brother has never been in a relationship but has had a number of crushes/attractions (which he calls" love") over the years to an extent that at times he behaves like a psycho lover. His" love" lasts for at the most 2 months and he is well aware of it. Though, at times, I make it clear that I am not going to hear about his irrational and childish activities, he still keeps on sharing them with me as well as all his relatives and friends and is dependant on us for suggestions. Currently, he is in love with some one in his workplace who has made it very clear that she is" not available" But, even then he says" he desperately wants her" I have made him understand that he should behave when in office as it might have a negative impact on his career. Although, he is a diligent employee, he still keeps pursuing this girl in question and his antiques have unnerved a few of his coworkers in the process. Everyone jokes about him. But, he does not get any hint that people are having a negative impression about his family too. He has always been pampered by most of his relatives and has had psychological problems as a child too. Please suggest a way so that I can help him understand as to how he can be a rational and responsible being.

Also let him take responsibility for his own behaviour. At 27, he is capable of solving his own problems. These are his problems, don't consider these problems as your problems, and let him handle it. Do not encourage him to behave like a child. Maintain some distance from his personal life. If he has been pampered by his relatives as a child, he has got used to this kind of treatment, and the same thing he is expecting from you now. If he has had some psychological problems as a child then please take him to a counsellor. The counsellor will do the needful.
