Suffering From Diabetes - 7 Foods That Are A Big 'NO'!

Dip.Diab, Fellowship Diabetology (Gold Medallist), MBBS
Diabetologist, Thane

Diabetic patients should have a meticulous focus on the kind of food they consume. While too much food can shoot up the blood sugar level, too less food can bring down the blood sugar level. It is necessary to maintain a fine balance. It is also very critical to refrain from certain food items which can give a blow back to diabetes.

Here is a list of 8 such food items to stay away from:

  1. Candy: Candies contain a high amount of sugar and largely contribute to weight gain and increase in blood sugar. Instead of consuming candies, it makes sense to satisfy the sweet tooth with food items such as berries, fruit salad etc.
  2. Pastries and cakes: Pastries and cakes are loaded with white flour, sugar, and sodium. They not, only interfere with the proper functioning of insulin in the body but can shoot up blood sugar level in a very short span of time.
  3. White bread: White bread acts just like sugar. Once the body digests it, the refined starch in the white bread interferes with insulin and disturbs diabetes control. A better option to white bread is a whole bread English muffin.
  4. French fries: A favorite to many, this can wreak havoc to the blood sugar level of a person suffering from diabetes. It contains tons of oil, carb, and starch. It raises the cholesterol level and invites other diseases as well.
  5. Syrup and pancakes: It is one of the worst choices in a breakfast. It has loads of white flour and carbs. The butter inside the pancakes makes it worse. Not only does it interfere with the insulin in the body, it majorly disturbs the diabetes control regime.
  6. Raisins: While raisins may not be as harmful as other food items, it still has a detrimental effect on the body. Owing to its concentrated sugar content, it can raise the blood sugar level.
  7. Fruit juice: Strange as it may sound, fruit juice, even if they are hundred percent pure is as good as a sugar syrup. It can sharply increase the blood sugar level and be a major roadblock to diabetes control.

Debunking Acne Myths - Here Are The Facts!

MBBS, MD - Skin,VD & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Noida
Debunking Acne Myths - Here Are The Facts!

Acne can be frustrating and annoying. A lot of unnecessary chaos can be avoided if people get the facts right.

1. Myth: Adults do not suffer from acne problems
Truth: While acne outbreaks are common amongst teenagers, adults are not spared either. In adults, the acne problems are essentially of two types; the late onset acne and the persistent acne. In many cases, it has been observed that the acne problems appear at a later period, mostly after 23 to 25 years of age (late onset acne). At other times, the unwanted acne outbreaks that mark its appearance during the teenage years linger for a longer period (persistent acne type).

2. Myth: A person's eating habits and lifestyle has no role to play in acne
Truth: Lifestyle and eating habits can influence a person's health. Excessive intake of sweets and simple carbohydrates can worsen the acne. Stress, fatigue, lack of proper sleep, can also aggravate the already frustrating acne problem.

3. Myth: Acne results from dirty skin, with adult men and women being equally affected
Truth: The Pilosebaceous unit of the skin plays a pivotal role in acne outbreaks. The oil producing gland (Sebaceous gland) of this unit acts as the main control. Certain hormones regulate the activity and size of this gland. An increase in the size of the sebaceous gland results in an increased oil secretion. The skin pores become very sticky. These pores serve as a host, into which the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes multiples.

Adult women are more prone to acne than their male counterparts. This is because, hormonal imbalance or alterations affects adult females more. Women often suffer from acne during menstruation.

4. Myth: Acne can spread from one person to another
Truth: More than often, acne is seen as a contagious dermatological problem. Though caused by the bacteria P. acnes, acne is not contagious. It is rather foolish to maintain a distance from the affected individual.

5. Myth: Acne is a minor problem and needs no medical intervention
Truth: Going for self-medication can do the acne more harm than good. Acne is influenced by a number of internal as well as external factors (stress, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy lifestyle). For an effective treatment, it is important to identify the root cause. It is best to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.

6. Myth: In case of acne, the face should be frequently washed and cleansed
Truth: Ideally, the face should be washed twice daily with a gentle cleanser. Some people get eternal pleasure in squeezing the heads of the spot. This can damage your skin beyond repair.

Do not allow acne problems to affect your self-confidence. Acne can be cured. Do not fall for the baseless myths.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

7 Reasons To Add Prebiotics To Your Diet

General Physician, Secunderabad

7 reasons to add prebiotics to your diet

Have you read it correctly? yes, we are talking about prebiotics and not probiotics. While they sound very similar and are often confused, prebiotics and probiotics are not the same. So what is the difference between the two?

Probiotic introduces good bacteria into the gut. It helps keep our digestive system healthy by controlling the growth of harmful bacteria. They are naturally found in cultured or fermented foods such as yogurt and other dairy products. Prebiotic on the other hand is a plant fiber that beneficially nourishes the good bacteria in the gut.

Now when we know the difference between the two, let’s have a look at some of the amazing health benefits of prebiotics:

1. Improved digestion: prebiotics stimulate the growth of probiotics also known as the beneficial bacteria. Prebiotics act like food for probiotics and balances the harmful bacteria in the digestive tract. This improves overall digestion leading to other health benefits too. The advantage of having good bacteria in the gut is that these bacteria use the fiber from the foods that you eat and use it well. Prebiotics and probiotics treat many digestive problems like diarrhoea, intestinal infections, crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and leaky gut syndrome.

2. Better weight loss: by improving your digestive system, prebiotics may also help you in achieving sustainable weight loss. This is because fibrous plant foods are slow to digest and make you feel fuller for a longer period of time. Fiber also helps in balancing your blood sugar levels by preventing your body from releasing excess insulin.

Weight loss is 99% mental and 1% physical. Start your journey today.

3. Stronger immunity: nearly 70% of your immune system is governed by what you are eating. Sadly, many lifestyle factors in today’s time deplete the natural stores of good bacteria in your gut such as frequent antibiotic use, chronic stress, refined sugar and low fiber diets. This is when prebiotics plays its role. Adding prebiotic foods to your diet can help replenish your body’s store of probiotics, and contribute to a stronger immune system.

4. Lowers inflammation: inflammation is the root cause of disease and prebiotics help in reducing it. People eating a high-fiber diet and consuming good amounts of prebiotics are generally in good health. It has been seen that prebiotics and probiotics also help in issues of type – 2 diabetes and obesity as they bring about an improvement in the metabolic process.

5. Reduced risk for heart disease: a sufficient intake of prebiotics can reduce free radicals which trigger inflammation and lowers insulin resistance. Prebiotics help the body to prevent ischemic heart diseases. It also prevents autoimmune disorders like arthritis. Electrolyte levels and minerals like potassium and sodium are responsible for controlling the blood pressure and the prebiotics assists the body in this function.

6. Maintains bone health: prebiotics help in the absorption of minerals in the body like magnesium, iron and calcium. All these are important for stronger bones and for preventing fractures or osteoporosis. In a study, ingesting just 8 grams of prebiotics in a day was shown to have a major effect on the absorption of calcium in the body which in turn led to an increase in the bone density.

7. Improves mood: mood-related disorders like anxiety or depression are linked to your gut health. Research has proved that your mood and the hormonal balances in your body is strongly linked to the bacterial health in your gut. The gut helps to absorb and properly metabolize nutrients that we get from the food we eat. This ultimately is used to support neurotransmitter functions like serotonin that control our mood and also our stress levels.

The best natural sources of prebiotics include,

1) Raw or cooked onions

2) Raw or fermented asparagus

कौंच के बीज के नुकसान - kaunch ke beej ke nukasaan!

कौंच का कई फायदे और नुकसान को प्राचीन काल से ही पहचान लिया गया था. कौंच का वानस्पतिक नाम म्युकुना प्रुरियंस है. 10-12 फीट लम्बी बेल के रूप में उगने वाली कौंच के जड़, पत्ते और बीज को औषधीय रूप में इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. आयुर्वेद में इसके ताकतवर कामोत्तेजक स्वभाव और शरीर को स्थिरता देने वाले गुण की प्रशंसा की गई है. कौंच में लेवोडोपा जिसे एल-डोपा भी कहा जाता है, नाम का रसायन पाया जाता है. ये रसायन एड्रेनालाईन, डोपामाइन और नॉरएड्रेनालाइन हार्मोन्स के लिए काफी लाभदायक होता है. जाहीर है लाभ के साथ-साथ प्रत्येक औषधि की तरह इसके कुछ नुकसान भी हैं। यदि कौंच के बीज के नुकसान के बारे में ज्यादा से ज्यादा लोगों को जानकारी मिले तो इसके प्रति जागरूकता फैलेगी। इससे इसके नुकसान के प्रभाव में आने वाले लोगों की संख्या में कमी आएगी। इसी बात को ध्यान में रखते हुये इस लेख के माध्यम से हमलोग कौंच के नुकसान पर एक नजर डालेंगे.
आवश्यकता से अधिक इस्तेमाल न करें

किसी भी चीज की एक निश्चित मात्रा इसे लाभदायक बनाती है, जबकि यदि आप असीमित मात्रा में इस्तेमाल करेंगे तो आपको इसका भारी नुकसान हो सकता है. कौंच के बीज का इस्तेमाल भी आवश्यकता से अधिक मात्रा में न करें.

क्या करें दुष्प्रभाव नजर आने पर?

जाहीर है यदि कौंच के बीज के सेवन के बाद आपके शरीर में कुछ असामान्य प्रक्रिया होने लगती है तो इस बात का अंदेशा होता है कि ये साइड इफेक्ट है. ऐसे ही यदि कभी कौंच के बीज के इस्तेमाल के बाद भी दुष्प्रभाव नजर आने पर आप घी, शहद और चीनी ले सकते हैं.

वजन कम कर सकता है

कई लोगों में कौंच के लंबे समय तक सेवन के बाद इसका उनके वजन पर असर देखा गया है. यदि आप भी इसका इस्तेमाल करते हैं तो लंबे समय तक इस्तेमाल से आपका वजन भी कम हो सकता है.

दस्त की समस्या भी आ सकती है

कौंच के सेवन से कई लोगों को इसके इस्तेमाल से दस्त की समस्या भी उत्पन्न हो सकती है. इसलिए यदि आपको भी इसका सेवन करने से दस्त की समस्या उत्पन्न होती है तो आप इसके इस्तेमाल में सावधानी बरतें.

आंतों की गति बढ़ा देता है

इसके सेवन से आंतों की गति में वृद्धि होती है जिससे रक्तचाप कम और ब्लड वेसेल रिलैक्स रहता है. इसलिए इसके सेवन के दौरान सावधान रहें ताकि किसी अनावश्यक परेशानी से बचा जा सके.

इसके सेवन के पश्चात कुछ चीजों का परहेज करें

कौंच के सेवन के पश्चात आपको खट्टा, मसालेदार, उत्तेजक और सूखे पदार्थों का सेवन नहीं करना चाहिए.
यह रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को भी कम करता है. इसलिए कौंच के सेवन के बाद इन्हें लेने से बचें.

कौंच के इस्तेमाल से होते हैं ये नुकसान

कई बार कौंच का सेवन करने वाले लोगों के मांसपेशियों में अनैच्छिक गति भी देखी जाती है. इसके इस्तेमाल के दौरान आपके हाथ-पैर के मूवमेंट में गड़बड़ी भी आ सकती है. इसलिए सावधान रहें.

इन बीमारियों के मरीज कौंच के इस्तेमाल से बचें

जिन लोगों को पलमनरी, हृदय रोग, ग्लूकोमा, किडनी रोग, लीवर और मानसिक रोग कि समस्या है उन्हें कौंच के बीज का इस्तेमाल करने में विशेष सावधानी बरतने की आवश्यकता है. ताकि किसी अनावश्यक परेशानी से बचा जा सके.

कुछ अन्य सावधानियाँ भी जरूरी हैं

कौंच के बीज को बच्चों के पहुँच से दूर ही रखें तो ठीक रहेगा. गर्भवती महिलाएं और स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाओं को कौंच के बीज से बनी कोई भी दवाई नहीं लेनी चाहिए. यदि आवश्यकता पड़े तो आपको चिकित्सक से परामर्श लेने में देरी भी नहीं करनी चाहिए.

नोट: - जहां तक संभव हो सावधानी बरतें. हो सके तो किसी विशेषज्ञ कि देखरेख में ही इसका सेवन करें.

First things first. You need to love yourself. Don't expect others to praise you. Pat yourself and appreciate your capabilities. Have a sense of self worth. Because no one will love and understand you like yourself. People's praise is but temporary, so forget it. Do what makes you happy and make your life one of joy and happiness. All else will follow.
