Cycle length usually becomes fixed between 21 to 35 days for an individual. But certain factors like diet, weight, sleep, exercise, weather, life events like marriage, change of location, work etc may alter the period length. So one should not worry if there are no other symptoms.

In some cases doctor can turn the baby by physical pressure but probably it is late now. If does not turn by delivery it is safer to deliver by caesarean operation though accepting higher risk for baby can be deliverd from vagina.

Drinking wife breast milk have a health risk? We're both healthy. I know it's for babies, but is there a chance that if I drink to much of it, the milk will go away?

Ph..D. ( scholar), Dr. M.L. Dhawle Homoeopathic Institute, Mumbai
Homeopath, Mumbai
Mr. lybrate-user its afterall animal milk. Its made for human only so no risk. But you have to think about your baby how she will get nutrition. Considering milk production it not upon how much you drink but its depend upon hormones prolactin and oxytocin which secteted by pituitary gland of our body. Also mother's psychology plays important role. So production is more according to the demands of baby but think stress produced upon mothers body for production. So better to leave it for baby.

How Much Do Your Nutritional Needs Change as You Grow Older?

How Much Do Your Nutritional Needs Change as You Grow Older?

A Quick Guide to Geriatric Nutrition

Special nutritional needs are often required in special circumstances. Unlike adults from 20 to 60, children and elderly people have specific needs as their physical requirements are different. Just like pregnant women need tailor-made diets for their specific needs, children and elderly people also require appropriate diets without too much variation.

The requirement for geriatric or elderly nutrition

As the body ages, certain functions within are slowed down and thus, the processes are not able to completely recuperate and replenish what was lost. Certain functions are affected more than others and hence, need specific nutrients to regenerate.

Tips for Geriatric Nutrition

Let's take a look at some of the specific diet requirements as well as certain items, which should be avoided.

1. Consumption of calcium rich foods - Bones are a part of the human body that tend to suffer a lot of wear and tear and they start showing signs of weakening after 60. It is thus, important to replenish calcium in the body to help the bones get their building blocks. Some examples of calcium-rich foods are almonds and green leafy vegetables like kale. Dairy products are also good as long as the fat content within them is low.

2. Keeping the body hydrated - Although physical activity reduces with age, dehydration can still occur within senior people and thus, it is important that they remain hydrated. Simply drinking water may not be enough and juices or other water-rich foods such as watermelons should be used to supplement for hydration.


3. Lessening sodium within the body - The presence of excess sodium in the body can cause blood pressure to shoot up and result in high blood pressure, which may then further result in more ailments like strokes. It is pertinent that foods rich in sodium such a red meats be lessened or cut out of the diet altogether.

4. Lessening sugar consumption or any other foods that may exacerbate diabetes - Another factor to consider is the consumption of sugar and sugar-filled products. Not just for diabetics, but elderly people have a tendency to develop high blood sugar and hence, it is prudent to reduce sugar intake.

Don't look at weight as the problem. The real problem is the food and the lifestyle which leads to that excess weight. You need to lose those food habits and that lifestyle. You need to aim and aspire to be more fit, more energetic and more active. Your BMI is 32.4 that falls in the Obese category. You are carrying about 25 kgs excess weight, and this weight is / will contribute to PCOD and other future problems if you don't take care of it now. Find a solution and pursue it. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Take this as a challenge to get fit. Follow a diet of 1300 calories per day. Use Myfitnesspal app to keep track of this. It simply means one roti each meal with dal/veg curry and a salad. 3 fruits everyday taken before meals. 3 liters of water. 30 mins of exercise morning and evening. Avoid searching for short cuts and miracle cures, because there are none. Find solutions which are permanent and natural. It is possible step by step.
