Why Drastic Deficiency of Vitamin D is Becoming Increasingly Common Among Urban Indian Youth?

Why Drastic Deficiency of Vitamin D is Becoming Increasingly Common Among Urban Indian Youth?

Why drastic deficiency of vitamin d is becoming increasingly common among urban Indian youth?

On this women's day, let's understand why young Indians esp. Are women facing this unforeseen deficiency and resultant problems?

Vitamin d is unique because it can be made in the skin from exposure to sunlight. We get a really good amount of sunny days as opposed to many western and northern countries where vitamin d deficiency is ought to be common.

It is surprising that vitamin d deficiency is such a common problem in India nowadays that it finds prevalence among 70-100 percent of the general population in the country. More than 80.63 percent of 73 lakh Indian youth suffer from the deficiency of vitamin d. What's more shocking is that it can lead to a variety of health issues ranging from osteoporosis to diabetes. Without vitamin d, only 10-15% of dietary calcium and about 60% of phosphorus are absorbed - which would certainly lead to weaker bones. Vitamin d sufficiency enhances calcium and phosphorus absorption by 30-40% and 80%, respectively.

Vitamin d exists in two forms - vitamin d2 and d3. Uv rays from the sun hit the skin, and vitamin d3 is naturally synthesized, so it is the most 'natural' form. However, our bodies do not make vitamin d2, and most oil-rich fish such as salmon, mackerel, and herring and eggs contain vitamin d3.

Here are a few reasons why deficiency of vitamin d is becoming increasingly common among urban Indian youth.


1. Being always indoors

Our youth is never out in the sun because they are too occupied with their laptops or video games. Their lifestyle is such that it does not allow them to spend some good time out in the sun, which is a major source of vitamin d for the body. Technological advancement and cut-throat competition have made the youth forget the sun as a source of a healthy dose of vitamin d.

2. No milk, no fish

A lot of Indian youth follow a strictly vegetarian dietary regimen and they avoid milk very commonly. Vitamin d is found in foods like fish, egg yolks, fish liver oils etc. And not consuming them is a major reason why youth face vitamin d deficiency.

In fact certain, distinct symptoms can help you know if you're suffering from vitamin d deficiency or not.

You need to keep an eye out for these:

- excessive sweating without indulging in physical activities or being exposed to high temperatures

- sudden bouts of weakness for no apparent reason

- brittle bones that break easily

- chronic pain in your brains

- feeling of depression

5 Signs Your Body is Lacking in Water

Post Graduate Diploma in Hospital and Healthcare Management, MD - Consultant Physician, Fellowship Critical Care Management

5 Signs Your Body is Lacking in Water

5 Signs Your Body is Lacking in Water

Water is indispensable for the human body as 90% of the brain and almost 60 per cent of an adult body is chiefly made up of water. Water is just as important as any of your meals. Each cell and organ depends on water for its proper functioning and for flushing out toxins and fats from the body. An average man must consume roughly 3 litres (10-12 glasses) of water per day; and a woman requires about 2.5 litres (8-10 glasses). If you’re not meeting this requirement, you might be fall prey to dehydration.

The state of water deficiency or dehydration can be determined through various symptoms. Read on to know the 5 most common signs…

1. The colour of your urine is dark

The colour of your urine indicates your health. The lesser the water you drink, the darker is the colour of your pee. If your urine is pale yellow, you drink a sufficient amount of water. If it’s dark yellow and concentrated, it’s a sign for you to refill on water. Also, if you haven’t urinated for more than two hours, you should immediately gulp 2 glasses of water.

2. You experience frequent headaches

Headaches are often caused by dehydration when the pressure from your blood vessels falls. Dehydration makes it tough for your heart to pump enough oxygen to the brain. Drinking sufficient amounts of water ensures the flow of oxygen in your body.

3. You feel dizzy and fatigued

Lack of water can often lead to laziness and restlessness. It may also cause a rapid change in your blood pressure. Low or high blood pressures are stimulants of fatigue. Water gives you instant energy that wakes up your whole system, thus making you feel revitalised.

4. You have constipated bowel movements

Water is one of the top natural remedies for constipation or troubled bowel movements. If your fluid intake is low, you’re likely to have stomach, gastric and bowel problems. The digestive system depends on water to help food move through both the intestines. It checks the functions of the digestive tract, while also keeping it flexible and clean.

5. You experience brain fogs and blackouts

Your brain cells and nerves react severely to water loss. You may start feeling a lack of concentration along with temporary memory loss. Blackouts and fogs are common when you have a deficit of water. You might even experience difficulty in carrying out cognitive tasks.

If you’re experiencing similar issues, you must enhance your daily water intake. You can try carrying a sipper around, which allows you to keep a tab on your water consumption. To relish water as a refreshing beverage, you can infuse freshly chopped fruits and herbs in a pitcher of chilled water. This flavoured water also cleanses your body of all toxins and chemicals, thus keeping you fresh.

Computer/Tablet/Mobile Phone Related Common Health Problems And There Remedies

Post Graduate Diploma in Hospital and Healthcare Management, MD - Consultant Physician, Fellowship Critical Care Management

Computer/Tablet/Mobile Phone Related Common Health Problems And There Remedies

In today’s world using Computers, Tablets and Mobile phones  are necessity for the majority of people but not many people actually consider the medical consequences that working with Computers/Mobile Phones can cause, such as damaged eyesight, Ear Problems, bad posture, arthritis in fingers and computer stress injuries that can be caused by sitting in one position for a prolonged period of time.

Excess of consecutive working hours mean that the above problems can feature in both young and old computer/Mobile .

The most common hazards are visual problems, soft tissue injuries, Hearing Problems and stress.

Visual problems

Eye symptoms related to computer/Tablet/Mobile use include:

·         stinging, itching or gravelly sensation;

·         irritation;

·         feeling tired;

·         light sensitivity;

·         redness;

·         blurred or double vision; and

·         temporary myopia (cannot see distant objects clearly right after computer use).

Eye muscles get tired if you stare on a computer screen for a while. If your monitor is near a window, your eyes will get tired trying to adjust to the difference between brighter outside light levels and the monitor's glow.

Computer/Mobile/Tablet  work slows down the blinking rate, so eyes can dry out. Glare, light levels and screen colours and contrast also are important. Bifocal and progressive lenses may not let you see the screen without straining eyes or neck and shoulder muscles, which can lead also to soft tissue injuries.

Soft tissue injuries

Some of the most common injuries linked to computer work show up in the wrist ( Carpal Tunnel Syndrome), arm, shoulders, neck, back and/or legs. Also known as repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) or musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), they are the result of badly designed and/or organized work, such as:

·         uncomfortable chairs without proper support;

·         poorly-placed monitors, keyboards and/or mouse;

·         lighting problems;

·         low or high work surfaces;

·         lack of breaks and variety; and

·         work pressure and pace.

Too often, computers are put on a regular desk, with no planning. Laptops cause more problems since they can be put anywhere and their keyboards cannot be detached from the screen.

These factors combine to force women into cramped working spaces using awkward or static (staying still) postures, doing repetitive work, without proper breaks, in stressful conditions.

Stress

It's stressful to be tied to a computer all day. Lack of control, high workload demands (mental and physical) and little support are key workplace stressors. Women may also face stresses related to hours of work, juggling family, work and other responsibilities, harassment/violence, pay levels and even being monitored (watched) electronically by the employer.

Stressors cause mental, physical and behavioural symptoms that may become long-term problems.

 

Ear Problems

Consistent talking on mobile phones leads to poor hearing and effects the hearing . Loss of Concentartion.

 

Legally, employers must provide healthy and safe work spaces for all employees. Employers are in the best position to make necessary changes to prevent injuries. But sometimes individual workers and/or their unions must argue for changes.

For the rising number of women who are self-employed, the responsibility rests on the women themselves to ensure their workspace is set up to avoid work-related injuries.

To prevent computer-related problems, consider both your computer workstation and its surroundings.

For your workstation, you need:

·         All of your body in a neutral, relaxed position;

·         Your feet flat on the floor;

·         An adjustable chair that moves easily;

·         Your back supported in the curved lumbar area (not below it), in a reclined                    posture of 100-110 degrees (not the upright 90 degree posture that is often               shown);

·         Your monitor about arms' length away (the larger the size, the further away);

·         To look straight ahead, eyes focussed about 2 - 3 inches/5.5 - 8.5 cm below                the top of the monitor;

·         Glasses that don't force you into awkward postures;

·         A keyboard on a flat (not tilted) tray within easy reach, that can be adjusted for           height;

·         Your keyboard height and design so that your wrists are straight - up/down and            sideways;

·         Your mouse nearby, about the same level as the keyboard;

·         arms close to your body, with shoulders, neck and head in a relaxed position;          

·         Space for the equipment, papers and tools you use, within easy reach.

          In your workplace in general, you need:

·         Adequate background light and brighter task light close to you;

·         To avoid glare from overhead lights or windows (e.g. don't sit looking at a                     window or within 1.5 m of one);

·         Space in which to move around;

·         regular breaks (10 minutes every hour is often recommended and in union                   contracts);

·         opportunities to be creative, do different things, talk to others, and go to the                 washroom as needed

·         Reasonable hours of work; and

·         To avoid other stressors.

          If you already have a computer, ask yourself:

·         How much space do you have to work with?

·         What needs to fit in it, at what distance?

·         What surface cannot be adjusted (e.g. the desk top) -- start from this point to               make adjustments -- and how can I change others (e.g. lower the monitor, use             a foot rest)?

·         If you sit in your usual way and try to relax, what do you want to do (e.g. drop               your shoulders, put your feet on the floor, bring your arm closer to your body)?

          It's also good to:

·         Find out what's happening to other people. There are tools you can use, such             as surveys and body maps.

·         Report problems to your employer, union, health practitioner and compensation           board  and

·         Take care of yourself when your job affects your health.

 

Thanks
