The 7 Amazing Things You'll Experience if You Stop Drinking!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The 7 Amazing Things You'll Experience if You Stop Drinking!

Maybe your nightly glass of wine has turned into two or three. Or you're overdoing it on the beer and have the paunch to prove it. 

Whether you want to clean up your diet or you're trying to nip a potential issue in the bud, giving up alcohol can be tough—but the benefits make it worth the effort! 

Taking a break from drinking alcohol—even if it's just for a couple of weeks—is a good idea, especially if you're regularly consuming more than the recommended daily limit. That limit is generally defined as a drink a day for women, and two for men. Keep in mind though, never attempt to detox from alcohol on your own. Always consult your Psychiatrist before abruptly stopping alcohol.

Here's what you can expect to happen, both short- and long-term, if you give up alcohol: 

1. You'll sleep more soundly. Drinking before bed increases alpha wave patterns in the brain—a kind of cerebral activity that usually occurs when you're awake but resting. The result? Disrupted sleep. A review of 27 studies found, that while alcohol may help people fall asleep more quickly and deeply at first, it seriously meddles with sleep quality after the initial restful period. You may toss and turn a bit at first, but give up alcohol and the sleep you get will likely leave you feeling more refreshed and sharp the next day. The byproducts of better sleep: improved mood, concentration, and mental performance.  

2. You'll consume less at dinner. Alcohol is one of the biggest drivers of excess food intake. Alcohol is frequently paired with mostly fried and other junk food, which is extremely unhealthy.

3. You may feel new sugar cravings. Sugar boosts levels of the "reward" chemical dopamine, which fuels feelings of pleasure. Alcohol does the same thing. So it's very possible that when you give up one substance that causes happy-making chemicals to float around your brain, you'll be more likely to reach for the other. Don't be surprised if you try to get that same enjoyment or rush you used to get after a drink from something sweet.

4. Pounds will start to fall off. Alcohol has a sneaky way of increasing your daily calorie intake without you realizing it. One study found men consume an additional 433 calories on those days they drink a "moderate" amount of alcohol. For women, it's 300 calories. Cut those from your diet—and don't replace them with desserts—and you'll start to lost weight without much effort.

5. Hello, clear complexion. Within a few days, you'll notice your skin looking and feeling more hydrated. That's because alcohol is a diuretic, causing you to urinate more. Alcohol also decreases the body's production of antidiuretic hormone, which helps the body reabsorb water. (Less water in the body equals parched-looking skin.) Ruddiness in your cheeks and around your nose may also start to fade, and other skin conditions—such as dandruff, eczema, or rosacea—may also improve.

6. You'll have more money. Drinking—especially a fine wine or scotch habit—is an expensive undertaking. Take a moment to crunch the numbers, adding up what you spend for drinks both at home and out on the town (factoring in tax and tip). It can be an eye-opening—and motivating—exercise.

7. You'll have amazing sex. Alcohol and sex have always had an uneasy relationship with one another. On the one hand, they certainly seem to hook up more often in each other’s presence. On the other hand, those hook-ups aren’t always totally satisfying.

Alcohol can sometimes enhance your libido, but it simultaneously tends to reduce your ability to act on said libido. As a result, men are frequently unable to ‘get it up.’ Ladies lose sensitivity. When you quit drinking, you may find that it’s not only easier to have sober sex, it’s also much more enjoyable.

Not to mention, people who drink more engage in more risky sexual behaviors, so much so that drinking triples your odds of getting a nasty STD compared to those who don't drink. You’re also less likely to use protection. That’s because it plagues judgment and decision-making skills.

If you’re like most people, the benefits of stopping drinking could include a decrease in the sheer quantity of intercourse and a meaningful increase in the quality of your sex life. In a nutshell, quitting drinking means more orgasms, less crabs, and fewer unwanted pregnancies. That’s a win-win.

Bile Duct Obstruction - All You Need To Know About It!

Bile Duct Obstruction - All You Need To Know About It!

Obstruction of the bile duct is characterized by the blockage of the bile duct. The function of the bile ducts is to transport bile to your small intestine. The bile is excreted in order to digest fats from the food. 

There are two types of bile ducts in the body

  1. Intrahepatic ducts: These ducts are small tube like structures that carry the bile to extrahepatic ducts
  2. Extrahepatic ducts: Extrahepatic ducts are two ducts that descend from the liver into the body's small intestine

Causes
The bile comprises of waste products, bile salts and cholesterol. The liver excretes bile which flows through the bile ducts and is stored in the gallbladder. If the bile ducts are blocked then the bile accumulates in the liver and can lead to jaundice.

Certain causes of this particular condition are mentioned below
1. Bile duct obstruction may result from gallstones
2. If you have inflammation in your bile ducts
3. Narrowing of the bile ducts
4. Enlargement of the lymph nodes
5. Bile duct tumors
6. Tumors in the pancreas
7. Various infections such as hepatitis
8. Liver complications such as cirrhosis
9. Various parasites may lead to bile obstruction
10. Inflammation of the pancreas
11. If you have weak immune systems, then it may lead to infections that may result in bile duct obstructions

The symptoms are
1. You may experience yellowish skin
2. You may have symptoms of fever and vomiting
3. Abdominal pain especially in the upper part
4. Stools may be light colored
5. You may pass urine that is dark in color


Treatment
The various treatment options for obstruction of the bile duct are surgeries that remove the blockage. Other treatment options are an ERCP (Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) and a cholecystectomy which is the process of removal of the gallbladder. ERCP is another procedure that is used to get rid of gallstones from the gallbladder. You may prevent it by consuming a lot of fiber in your diet. Make lifestyle changes such as exercising on a regular basis and eating healthy.

Prolapsed Bladder - Causes And Symptoms

Fellowship in Andrology, DNB-Urology , MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Urologist, Hyderabad
Prolapsed Bladder - Causes And Symptoms

A bladder is an organ that stores urine in the body. A prolapsed bladder occurs when the tissue present between the vagina and the bladder is stretched, resulting in a bulge in the bladder. This can result in complications such as leakage of urine and difficulty in passing the same. Based on the severity of the damage, it is classified into four categories -
 

  1. Mild: A small area of the bladder bulges in the vagina
  2. Moderate: The bladder bulges near the vaginal opening
  3. Severe: Protrusion of the bladder occurs through the vaginal opening
  4. Complete: The entire area of the bladder protrudes completely from the body via the opening of the vagina

The symptoms of a prolapsed bladder are: 

  1. Feeling of intense pressure around the pelvic area
  2. Infections related to the bladder
  3. Pain during sexual intercourse
  4. Tissues bulging out through the vaginal opening
  5. Pain in the lower back region

Prolapsed bladder is caused by:

  1. Childbirth: It can cause ligaments and pelvic muscles to weaken thus increasing their vulnerability to a prolapsed bladder
  2. The chances of this disorder increases when one is overweight
  3. Lifting heavy things
  4. Strain caused by bowel movements 
  5. In some cases, it may result from a chronic cough
  6. Menopause, as it limits production of estrogen which helps in maintaining healthy tissues in the vagina

It is advised to check with a medical professional if you experience these symptoms, as a prolapsed bladder can worsen with time if left untreated.

Sir, from past two years blood comes from anus, when it comes it will continues 3 to days and then stopped. After a month it will repeat. I am at 21 what's the problem sir?

Homeopath,
Mainly be piles or anal fissure but since its chronic you need to show gastroenterologist for rule out other cause or polyp in colon or fistulaano ORibd UC CORHN or malignancy need simple tests can detect occult blood in the stool. Practoscopy A blood count will indicate whether the patient is anemic and also will give an idea of the extent of the bleeding and how chronic it may be. Endoscopy Endoscopy is a common diagnostic technique that allows direct viewing of the bleeding site. Ct scan abdomen.

I have problem of gal bladder stone, stone is a multiple, stone size 5 to 12 mm seen.

MBBS

I have  problem of gal bladder stone, stone is a multiple, stone size 5 to 12 mm seen.
Hello, Thanks for using Lybrate! I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns. Treatment options generally depend on patient's condition and clinical symptoms and not based on the size of the stone. The size of your gall stone is a moderate, generally no surgical intervention is not needed unless you have pain and other symptoms. If you have severe pain that could not be managed with general analgesics (pain killers) surgery may be needed. Nowadays laparoscopic removal of gall bladder is preferred and you can get back to your daily activities with in few days. Prior to surgery a USG scan may be needed to assess the condition of your gall bladder. I suggest you to consult a general surgeon with good experience in laparoscopy and he will explain you regarding the various treatment options. As of now you can continue you pain killers. Hope this information helps. Wishing you good health.

In case of complex fistula with long fistula tract, healing takes long time 1 month. But continous discharge beyond a time is considered recurrence. Consult your operative surgeon.

This query is regarding my father. As of now his age is 59 years and the problem which I am going to discuss occurred in mid 2015. Previous History: Gas in stomach, mucus formation, piles, cataract. Can not have high doses of medicines hence relies heavily on Homeopathy medicines History of events: April 2015: He underwent Cataract operation and was on medication. Was constantly in touch with doctors because he was not feeling comfortable (weakness, pain etc). Heavy doses of painkillers and antibiotics. May 2015: He was alone in home. Was suffering from fever. In the night when he was asleep at around 12" 0 clock he fell from the bed. He remembers hurting his "neck" and then he became unconscious for about 1-2 hours. When he got back to senses, he recollected himself but again fell unconscious. After some time when he woke up he managed to call others. In the morning he had multiple "vomiting" He felt very weak. But then some how things got controlled. After this event his health deteriorated drastically. Though he is 59 years in age, he seems to be of nearly 70 years. We have consulted various doctors across India but they could not infer anything. Existing Problems: Some time in 3-4 days he feels good and fresh in even standing His neck movement is restricted. He does not keep it down (like reading book) for long hours. His memory has also suffered. He gets tired too early (before this incident he used to work very hard) Medical tests carried out: CT Scan, Blood Tests, ECG etc. Only MRI was left out because he is 'phobiac' about it and will not get it done. As CT Scan reports also did not reflect anything we also did not insisted. Findings: Everything was normal. Doctors also have not said anything. But while doing ECG, the specialist had said "there is something unusual. It is very minute thing, but it is. Though overall it is completely normal" Current Medication: He was on antibiotics and other things till Oct 2015. But since it wasn't working and no one was able to diagnose, so he switched to Homeopathic medicines. The doctor is giving him medicines related to heart problems and he is better than before, but his health is declining. Sorry for the long post, but pls suggest me how to get diagnosed properly. Our focus is on Diagnosis first. Would humbly request your suggestions. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, Problem with digestion, lack of energy, excessive sleeping, feeling depressed with life are symptoms of depressive disorder. Probably you tried marijuana to feel better. It could not help forever. Now you are back again with all symptoms. Please consult psychiatrist who will diagnose your depressive symptoms properly and treat you. Please don't try marijuana again since it will give only temporary relief. Your symptoms are not due to marijuana withdrawal. They are due to another probably a depressive disorder.

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern. It's not clear what causes irritable bowel syndrome, treatment focuses on the relief of symptoms. Following steps should be taken 1. Eliminating high-gas foods such items as carbonated beverages, vegetables — especially cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower — and raw fruits. 2.Some people are sensitive to types of carbohydrates such as fructose, fructans & lactose, called FODMAPs .FODMAPs are found in certain grains, vegetables, fruits and dairy products such as wheat, rye, barley, onion, garlic, apples, apricots, avocados, blackberries, cherries, etc 3.Taking fiber supplements, such as psyllium or methylcellulose, with fluids may help control constipation. Fiber obtained from food may cause much more bloating compared with a fiber supplement. 4.Anti-diarrheal medications such as loperamide, can help control diarrhea. 5.Anticholinergic and antispasmodic medications. These medications, such as hyoscyamine and dicyclomine, can help relieve painful bowel spasms. They should not be used if you have constipation. 6.Counseling. You may benefit from counseling if you have depression or if stress tends to worsen your symptoms. 7. In some people improvement in diarrhea symptoms occurs, if they stop eating gluten (wheat, barley and rye) Don't worry you would be fine Hoping your query is solved.
