It is likely when your doctor prescribed you dronis, she must have asked to take the course for 3 months atleast and to start new pack after 4days of pill free period. If you have started the new pack, your next periods are expected on those 4 days of pill free time.

Dear Megh, Breast pain in both breasts is normally not a worrying issue. Please get an ultrasound done and if it is normal-forget about it. Since it is just before periods its all the more vreason not to worry.

Diet In CKD ( Non Dialysis patients)

DM - Nephrology, DNB (Nephrology)
Nephrologist, Mumbai
Diet In CKD ( Non Dialysis patients)

Diet in ckd in non dialysis patients:

  1. We suggest the following dietary guidelines for most patients with egfr 60 ml/min/1.73 who are not on dialysis:
  2. A daily protein intake of 0.8 g/kg. We do not recommend very-low-protein intake (0.6 g/kg/day).
  3. A diet rich in vegetables.

The sodium intake varies depending on individual patient clinical features. Among individuals who are hypertensive, volume overloaded, or proteinuric, we suggest a sodium intake of 2 g/day (ie, 5 g/day of salt [nacl]).
For patients who are not hypertensive, volume overloaded, or proteinuric, sodium restriction to 2.3 g/day (5.75 g/day of salt [nacl]) may be of benefit. There are no convincing studies of the general population that have proven that lowering sodium intake to less than 2.3 g per day lowers cardiovascular outcomes or all-cause mortality. The institute of medicine has concluded that there is insufficient evidence to recommend a different sodium intake for ckd patients as compared with the general us population [2].

  1. The potassium intake should be guided by serum potassium levels. If the potassium concentration is normal, we do not restrict dietary potassium. If the potassium concentration is high, dietary potassium intake should be restricted. 
  2. Some clinicians target a total calcium intake (both dietary and medication sources) ≤1500 mg/day, whereas others prefer a more stringent goal of ≤1000 mg/day.
  3. Maximum phosphorus intake of 0.8 to 1 g/day, even if the serum phosphorus concentration is normal; this is because some studies suggest that dietary phosphorus intake may alter circulating fibroblast growth factor (fgf)-23 concentration. The dietary phosphorus should be derived from sources of high biologic value, such as meats and eggs.
  4. Maximum caloric intake of 30 to 35 kcal/kg/day.
  5. Maximum fat intake - 30 percent of daily energy intake, with saturated fat limited to 10 percent energy.
  6. Daily dietary fiber intake for 25 to 38 g/day.

My partner swolows my semen is alright or it will create a problem? can she get pregnant?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Nothing to worry, it is safe provided both of you maintain optimum hygiene. Swallowing semen carries no additional risk other than those inherent in fellatio. Fellatio does carry transmission risk for sexually transmitted diseases such as human papillomavirus (hpv) or herpes, especially for people with bleeding gums, gingivitis or open sores. An average ejaculation contains trace amounts of many nutrients such as zinc, calcium and potassium, as well as vitamin b12. The limited studies on the health benefits of semen ingestion are positive.

5 Unexpected Reasons Why You Might Be Losing Your Hair!

5 Unexpected Reasons Why You Might Be Losing Your Hair!
5 Unexpected Triggers of Hair Fall

Your genes may be the most common triggers of hair fall, but in certain cases hair fall can be triggered by a host of other reasons you wouldn’t have thought about. Sometimes these reasons can range from being simple and temporary (lack of essential nutrients in your diet for example) to something more complex and indicative of an underlying health problem. Read on...

1. Brushing wet hair

Detangling wet hair (easy at it may seem) is probably one of the most common triggers of hair fall. Wet hair is extremely delicate, and brushing wet hair causes the strands to break, leading to excessive hair fall. Repeatedly doing so can cause your hair to become thinner over time, which may result in visibly less hair on your scalp.

2. Food poisoning

Food poisoning can cause an abnormality in your blood circulation, which, as a result, can lead your hair to prematurely enter into a shedding phase. The hair loss that takes place due to this reason is known as ‘diffuse hair loss.’ This type of hair loss usually lasts for a period of 3 months, after which, the hair follicles are replaced by new ones. Hair fall caused by food poisoning is only temporary, and is corrected on its own with time.

3. Car crashes or any other traumatic events

When you go through a car crash or any other traumatic incidence for that matter (divorce, death in the family etc), you may experience an extreme form of shock. This can lead to the development of small bald patches on your head, which is known as Telogen Effluvium. Usually, trauma triggers an autoimmune reaction, because of which the white blood cells attack the hair bulb. This causes the hair bulb to enter into the resting phase, which leads to mildly painful hair loss in particular patches. This type of hair fall is reversible.

4. Food allergies

Different foods (such as dairy, wheat, soy etc) can cause allergies in different people. Such an allergic reaction can cause your immune system to react violently, consequently making your immune system send signals throughout your body to ward off attacks. This, in very rare cases, can give rise to the condition of Alopecia Areata, as your immune system detects the growth of your hair as foreign attack and sends off signals to destroy hair follicles. This type of hair fall ceases once you stop consuming food(s) you’re allergic to.

5. General Anaesthesia and Surgery

Hair fall triggered by general anaesthesia and a major surgery usually shows up 3 months after the surgery has taken place. The combination of general anaesthesia and a major surgery can put your body under heavy physical stress, which can cause alterations in the life cycles of the hairs on your scalp, consequently leading to excessive hair fall. Hair fall caused by this reason is temporary too, and usually your hair will grow back over time.
Now that you know about the possible triggers of hair fall, you may be in a better position to control your condition and prevent your hair from falling out.

You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. Also if abortion/ miscarriage was caused by any viral infection, then it will get cured automatically within 3 months time. Use contraception for 6 months. Best one to use are oral contraceptive pills. No special treatment or tests are needed if you had only one miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.

BODY TYPES & NUTRITION

BODY TYPES & NUTRITION

Not everybody’s created equal. Before you start your nutrition regimen, its always a good idea to figure out your Body Type. This will help you tailor your diet better and set realistic and attainable goals.


There are 3 basic human body types:

Ectomorph: They are distinguished by a lack of much fat or muscle tissue.

Mesomorph : This is marked by a well developed musculature.

Endomorph :  This is characterized by a preponderance of body fat.

This is how the 3 body types look like:


Everybody is different since we all have different genetic and cultural traits. If everyone ate the same things and started exercising similarly, we would not look the same. This is because each person’s genetic inheritance influences their bone structure, body size, shape, and weight differently.

Thus, every body type should eat differently as per what appeals to them. This will not only maintain one’s healthy weight but also prevent any kind of eating disorders.


ECTOMORPHS:

Ectomorphs are individuals characterized by smaller bone structures and thinner limbs. They are characterized by:

Narrow hips and clavicals
Small joints (wrists and ankles)
A thin build
Stringy muscle bellies
Long limbs
Proper nutrition is very important, especially for those who consider themselves as “Ectomorphs”. It typically means that they have a faster metabolism , a tough time gaining body weight and higher overall caloric needs.

An ectomorph must typically start his or her diet plan by following the main principles for big gains in muscle size and strength.

As an Ectomorph, your ideal nutrition consists of about 55% of complex carbohydrates , 30% good quality proteins and 15% healthy fats.

Ectomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

Avoid fatty foods, especially animal fat, cold cuts, mayonnaise, full-fat dairy, rich desserts, packaged foods, chips.

As an Ectomorph, the ideal nutrition consists of about 55% of complex carbohydrates (whole grains, rice, nuts all vegetables), approx. 30% quality proteins (whey, chicken, eggs), and up to 15% healthy fats cold-pressed virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil and good omega 3 sources like fish and sea food.


MESOMORPHS

Mesomorphs have a medium sized bone structure and athletic body, and if they’re active, they usually have a considerable amount of lean mass. They are characterized as follows:

Wide clavicles
A narrow waist
Thinner joints
Long and round muscle bellies
As a mesomorph, you are likely to put on muscle easily and also easy to gain and lose body weight. However,  mesomorphs yet need a targeted diet plan that helps them avoid fat gain and improve overall health.

BALANCE  is very important for a mesomorph, who falls between an ectomorph and an endomorph. A typical diet for mesomorphs should comprise of 45% complex carbohydrates, 35% good quality proteins and up to 20% healthy fats.

Mesomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

Avoid fatty foods (full-fat dairy, fatty meats, cold cuts, mayonnaise, very rich desserts,) and minimize as much as possible refined carbohydrates (sugars and white flour products), as they cause rapid weight gain triggering a fat-storage metabolism.

As a Mesomorph, you should eat 3 smaller meals favoring foods high in quality protein (whey, chicken, eggs) and complex carbohydrates (leafy greens and non starchy vegetables).

Approx. 45% complex carbohydrates, 35% quality proteins and up to 20% healthy fats; use cold-pressed virgin olive oil and flaxseed oil in salads and get used to cooking with rice bran oil.

Include fish and seafood, as they are good omega 3 sources-omega 3 and weight loss connection is well-known.

In between meals get a healthy snack: fruits (except the sweet ones, like bananas, pineapple, grapes, mango, watermelon), raw almonds, plain yogurt or various smoothies with the right foods for you, as above.

ENDOMORPHS

Endomorphs have a larger bone structure with higher amounts of total body mass and fat mass. They tend to be naturally less active and thus have more tendency to store energy as fat. Thus, they have a particularly easy time gaining weight but hard to shed kilos. The main characteristics of a Endomorph is:

They look blocky
Wider and thicker joints
Wider hips than the clavicles
Shorter limbs
Out of all the three body types, Endomorphs have the greatest tendency towards roundness. Being an endomorph, obesity is very common in males in females.

“Apple shaped obesity” is more commonly seen in males where there is excess fat in and around the belly, while “Pear shaped obesity” is commonly seen in females with excess fat on the hips and buttocks.

Endomorphs’ Ideal Body Type Diet

As an Endomorph, your nutrition for losing weight should be roughly up to 30% complex carbohydrates (starchy vegetables, brown rice, whole grains), about 45% quality protein (chicken breast, whey protein) and about 25% healthy fats: omega 3 sources (fish, seafood) and ricebran oil, which helps to increase your sluggish metabolism. Also, to keep your metabolic rate up, divide your daily meals into smaller portions so that you have something to eat handy every 2-3 hours.

Avoid as much as you can all types of sugar (including all fruits except berries) and simple carbohydrates like white flour products and pasta, white rice, potatoes, because they cause a rapid rise of your blood sugar level, which, in turn triggers the release of insulin, the fat-storage hormone. Never end your meals feeling completely full.

Endomorphs typically do best on a higher fat and protein intake with carbohydrate intake being controlled and properly timed (e.g., after exercise). More fat and protein, less carbohydrate.

A nutrient distribution for this body type might be around 25% carbs, 35% protein, and 40% fat.

KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE – YOUR DAILY NEEDS ARE AS IMPORTANT AS YOU ARE !!

Why You Must Check About Possibility of Single Cut Surgery Before Undergoing Any Operation

Why You Must Check About Possibility of Single Cut Surgery Before Undergoing Any Operation
All you need to know about laparoscopic single incision surgery

The development of minimally invasive surgical procedures has brought about great improvement in the medical field. This form of surgical procedure makes use of advanced technologies so as to reduce the need for making bigger incisions (or cuts) that characterise conventional open surgeries for the pelvic or abdominal region. A modern surgical technique that has made its appearance in the field of minimally invasive surgery is the laparoscopic single incision surgery.

So what is laparoscopic single incision surgery?

A variation of the traditional laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic single incision surgery is a relatively a more complex process as it involves the manipulation of 3 surgical instruments through just one point of access. The chief advantage that it offers is that of fewer scar formations as the incision point is very small. Instead of the usual 4-5 small incisions that characterise a laparoscopic surgery, only a single incision of about 1.5-2cm is made and is used as point of entry for different surgical instruments to be inserted.

It can help procedures ranging from gynaecological and urological to colon and cover operations like removal of gallbladders, appendix, ovarian cysts, ovaries or the small bowel. The length of time that the surgeon normally takes to perform an operation using this approach is the same as you would normally expect from a conventional laparoscopic technique (which is roughly an hour).

What are the advantages of this form of surgery?

The reason behind the growing popularity of this type of surgical procedure is that unlike open surgery, it does not come with the disadvantages of longer recovery times, greater pain, infection and blood loss.
The key benefits that this form of minimally invasive surgery offers are:

1. It causes less discomfort than a normal open surgery as it requires only a single incision to be made on the body
2. Since fewer incisions are made, the chances of infection and scarring are also significantly reduced through this approach
3. Again, because the recovery time for this minimally invasive surgical procedure is short, the hospital stay following this surgical procedure is also of a shorter span
4. It also enables you to return to your diet of solid food much faster than you would normally do when you opt for the traditional surgery
5. It also sees you returning to your daily activities and lifestyle much faster
Offering a host of benefits, including fewer complications, single incision laparoscopic surgery can be opted if you suffer from problems of the abdominal or pelvic region.

Which type of food have to take for person who is affecting with pcos without using tablets.
Hello, the first line of management in pcos is diet modification with regular exercise. Low carb diet is what you need. So eat less of rice, juices, cold drinks, biscuits, cakes. Avoid all junk like pizzas, burgers, fried food. Take plenty of salads, wholegrains, fruits, oats, veggiesetc.
