Your body shape reveals more about you than merely the outer appearances. In fact, it is a reflection of your inner health and as well as your future health. Here are some of the things that your body shape reveals about your overall health and the diseases that you need to look out for.
1. Triangle: the pear shaped body or the triangle body usually has more fat on hips, thighs and the butt. They are at lower risk of heart diseases, since the weight is less concentrated on the waist. But, they can develop lower back problems and may have an increased tendency to develop knee issues as most of the weight is carried on hips and thighs.
2. Circle: circle shape is basically for those who carry a lot of fat around their waists. Men and women are equally likely to be affected. Those with a waist size larger than 34 inches in female and 36 inches in male are considered circle shaped. They are at a higher risk of uterine problems, kidney issues and pancreatic-colon cancers.
3. Rectangle: men and women who tend to carry weight distributed all around their bodies have a rectangular body shape. While this is a desirable shape for men, for women it may lead to a flatter looking body. This body shape is healthier than the others, but you may experience osteoarthritis and joint pain if you have higher body fat.
4. Apple: women who carry extra fat on the upper body, i. E. Arms and chest, upper stomach as well have apple shaped bodies. If their body fat is appropriate, they tend to be healthy, but being apple shaped can put you at risk for a number of conditions, including heart problems, blood pressure problems and diabetes.
But remember, irrespective of your body type, make sure that you exercise regularly, have well-balanced diet and stay happy.

My wife was 3 week pregnant. And we take natural abortion, now she have some problem. Last 4 days lots of excessive bleeding is there. What to do?
I am a 28 years old female and first my doctor prescribed Nexito and later he changed the dosage as Nexito Forte. Can you please tell me the difference between these two: Nexito and Nexito Forte.
His month we’d like to talk with you about pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome), the most common cause of female infertility and hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age.
This information is mainly for women who are experiencing difficulty getting pregnant as well as women done having babies and having irregular menstrual bleeding, acne, excess body hair growth, and/or difficulty losing weight.
•menstrual period becoming irregular with or without difficulty getting pregnant.•menses are prolonged or infrequent over the last several months.•unwanted or excess hair growth on upper lip, chin, between breasts, on the lower abdomen, or the inner thighs.•acne.•consistent weight gain or difficulty losing weight.
How pcos occurs
•the pituitary gland secretes high levels of lh (luteinizing hormone) and the ovaries make excess androgens such as testosterone.•these increased hormone levels disrupt the normal menstrual cycle, interfere with ovulation, and lead to excess body hair and acne.•when ovulation does not occur, the egg is not released from the follicle and it forms a small cyst along the outer edge of the ovary, forming the “polycystic” appearing ovary.•it should be noted that all women diagnosed with pcos do not have polycystic appearing ovaries.
How we treat pcos
If you have pcos symptoms and live in virginia beach, norfolk, chesapeake, portsmouth or hampton roads, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our gyn doctors or nurse practitioner. Our gyn clinic will take a complete history of your menstrual cycle, pregnancies, recent weight changes, medical problems including diabetes, family history, medications you take, and surgeries you have had.
We will also perform a physical examination including a blood pressure check, weight, pelvic examination, blood tests, and possibly a vaginal ultrasound (likely done as a second visit).
Your gyn doctor will explain everything that is being done and why it is necessary. Once the test results have returned, you will have a follow-up appointment with your gynecologist to go over the results and come up with a treatment plan that resolves your problem in a way that works for you.
If the goal is a pregnancy, we will work with you to achieve that goal. Our treatment would likely include medication such as clomid to induce ovulation. That can be done through a reproductive endocrinologist. Anything more involved than clomid would need to be done through a specialist your gynecologist would recommend.
If the goal is to regulate your menstrual cycle and bring a little predictability back to your life, we can help with that as well. That can be done with oral contraceptives, the nuvaring, or taking progesterone for 10-14 days each month if you prefer to avoid a birth control pill.
If the goal is to treat the excess androgens and reduce excess body hair growth, we can treat that with a medication called aldactone. It is actually a diuretic, but it has been successful in several patients with slowing regrowth of hair after it has been removed by other means.
But first we need to determine what is causing the problem. Perhaps it is pcos, but there are other possibilities as well.
More about pcos
Pcos is associated with diabetes and excess insulin production (also known as insulin resistance). Some patients who are diagnosed with pcos may already have diabetes and some may be at risk for it in the future. This is important to know so it can be periodically screened for. We see a fair amount of women in india who fall into this category.
There is also research being done to determine if pcos is hereditary. Therefore, if your mother or sister has pcos, you may be at increased risk too. The final results of that research have not yet been released.
It is not normal, nor is it safe, to skip periods unless it is medically supervised by your gyn doctor. If your body is not having regular menstrual bleeding, you need to have that checked by a gynecologist. If it is not caused by menopause or by hormone manipulation prescribed by your doctor, you could be at risk for cancer of the uterus.
Pcos patients need to talk to their gynecologist and have a plan for having regular menstrual bleeds in order to prevent the risk of uterine cancer that can be associated with skipping periods. Women are sometimes so happy to not “deal with” bleeding, they do not stop to think about how they could be affecting their body. Please take this as a reminder -- it is not safe.
If you may be suffering from pcos symptoms, please schedule a consultation to discuss your symptoms and get a diagnosis. Once we know what we are dealing with, then the treatment plan is much easier to establish.
Hi, m suffering from pcos. How to get rid of it ,m having irregular periods and my weight is increasing even after doing jogging ,walking and maintaining my diet please help me.
Both heat and cold therapy can help. It may take some trial and error to find out which works best for you.
How does heat therapy help reduce swelling and pain?
Heat dilates (opens up) blood vessels, stimulates blood circulation and reduces muscle spasms.
At home you can try dry heat such as heating pads or moist heat such as warm baths or heated moist towels.
How does cold therapy help reduce swelling and pain?
Cold works differently, it constricts (closes blood vessels) then opens them up again closes and opens up. This alternate closing and opening cycle of blood vessels drains out swelling and toxins from that area. At home you can use ice packs with covers or traditional ice bags or ice cubes in a plastic bag with proper covers so its not too cold.
Both heat and cold should be used very carefully only when sensations are normal otherwise it can cause burns or damage to skin and tissues.
Professional health care providers such as physiotherapists use moist heat, deep heat such as ultrasound therapy and cold therapy along with joint and tissue mobilizations, specific stretching and strengthening exercises, customized tips about improving posture, ergonomics, sleeping habits for long lasting relief from pain.
