Instead of protein powder you can take a protein rich diet .add boiled eggs, milk ,curd, and other dairy products ,legumes and whole pulses. Nonveg products if you're nonvegetarian in your diet.

In order to have healthy volume of hair on your head, the rate of hair loss and replacement should be in tandem. With age, your hair growth cycle shows signs of slowing down and factors like age, disease, and hormonal changes among others affect the pace at which an individual hair follicle moves through the 3 phases of the hair cycle. A disruption in your hair cycle can give rise to loss of hair that’s rapid and unexpected. Hair loss or alopecia can affect both men and women.
So what can cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate?

The reasons behind hair loss could be many, but here are 6 major ones:
1. Lack of protein in your diet
When you exclude protein from your diet, your body starts to conserve the protein that it has by altering the growth cycle of your hair. In such cases, your hair enters into the resting stage, resulting in zero hair growth.
In India, 9 out of 10 people are said to suffer from low amounts of protein in their diet, with 91% vegetarians reporting protein deficiency.

2. Iron deficiency
Iron plays a very important role in the transportation of oxygen to the different organs of the body. Lack of iron in your diet (which is the principle reason behind anaemia) can give rise to several health problems including hair loss. Your body attempts to direct oxygen to important organs so as to support their functioning. As a result, your scalp witnesses a low supply of oxygen, which causes hair loss.


3. Vitamin D-3 deficiency
Deficiency of vitamin D-3 gives rise to a type of hair loss called Telogen Effluvium (TE). This is a temporary hair thinning phenomenon that takes place when the all the hair on your scalp enter the resting phase at the same time, subsequently causing you to shed a large amount of hair later on.

4. Smoking
Smoking can also affect the health of your hair, especially the rate at which it falls and the number of strands lost in a day. A research carried out by the Harvard School of Public Health has revealed that smoking can cause a rise in a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
An increase in DHT level prevents new hair cells from growing and causes hair follicles to reduce in size with each hair cycle. As a result, the area on your scalp that gets affected by DHT experiences a lack of hair growth.

5. Use of testosterone supplements in gym
Intake of testosterone in the form of supplements and injections to build muscle mass can trigger hair loss in men. This takes place when the testosterone in these supplements gets changed into DHT, thereby affecting your hair loss rate and amount.

6. Past illnesses (dengue, TB and typhoid)
Falling of hair can also be brought on by illnesses such as typhoid, TB and dengue as the hair growth cycle comes to a stop. Hormonal or metabolic stress that is experienced during the course of such diseases may cause hairfall.

What are the treatments available to cure hair loss?

1. Hair transplant
Hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical technique that transfers hair follicles taken from other parts of your body to the balding area. Known by the name of Follicular Unit Transplantation, this hair loss treatment can help to bring back the natural appearance of a fuller head of hair. Hair follicles are harvested using two procedures- follicular unit extraction and strip harvesting. Procedure can vary from 4-8 hours or more depending on the case.

2. Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP) is another treatment alternative that can reverse hair loss. It’s a simple non-surgical procedure that lasts about 60-90 minutes. In this form of hair treatment, the patient’s own blood cells, more specifically blood platelets are injected into the scalp. Usually 8 sittings are required with each sitting being 2 weeks apart for better results.

3. Low Level Laser (Light) Therapy (LLLT)
This form of hair therapy utilises light energy of a specific wavelength and threshold to stimulate cellular activity, thereby promoting hair growth. Various controlled clinical tests have revealed its effectiveness in encouraging hair growth in both the genders.

I made a relationship with my husband on 10th of May using condom. My period date was 26th of May. Period was on time, but it remains only for two days. Now sometimes there is a sharp pain on lower side of my stomach and did not feel better. Is there any sign of pregnancy? If yes, then what to do? If no, then why I am getting pain on lower side of my stomach.

For stomach pain take tablet Meftalspas-Ds eight hourly if necessary and To clear your doubts get an ultrasound pelvis done to rule out any pathology and follow up with reports and as per the information provided you are not pregnant.

Approach a good art center (test tube baby center) in your area and seek their expertise. Low amh needs evaluation and some treatment. They will do some tests to assess your ovulation and hormonal status. If fine, and if you are ovulating they will help you. At times some medicines may be prescribed to you to help get good ovulation. This is taken for about 3 months and then ovulation attempted. Some patients may have to opt for donor oocyte too.

What Is Stenosing Tenosynovitis?

What Is Stenosing Tenosynovitis?

Stenosing tenosynovitis which is also known as trigger finger is a medical condition in which one of your fingers gets stuck in a bent position. Your finger may bend or straighten with a snap – like a trigger being pulled and released.

It occurs when inflammation narrows the space within the sheath that surrounds the tendon in the affected finger. If trigger finger is severe, the finger may become locked in a bent position.

People whose work or pursue hobbies require repetitive gripping actions and are at higher risk of developing trigger finger. The condition is also more common in women and in anyone with diabetes. Treatment of trigger finger varies depending on the ferocity.

Symptoms may progress from mild to severe which may include:

  • Finger stiffness, particularly in the morning
  • A popping or clicking sensation as you move your finger
  • Tenderness or a bump (nodule) in the palm at the base of the affected finger
  • Finger catching or locking in a bent position, which suddenly pops straight
  • Finger locked in a bent position, which you are unable to straighten

Trigger finger can affect any finger, including the thumb. More than one finger may be affected at a time, and both hands might be involved. It is usually noticeable in the morning, while firmly grasping an object or when straightening your finger.  the patient should seek immediate medical care if the finger joint is hot and inflamed, as these signs may indicate infection.

If you have any stiffness, catching, numbness or pain in a finger joint, or if you can’t straighten or bend a finger, fix an appointment with a doctor.

Factors that put at risk of developing trigger finger include:

Repeated gripping–  Occupations and hobbies that involve repetitive hand use and prolonged gripping may increase the risk of trigger finger.

Certain health problems- People who have diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis are at higher risk of developing trigger finger.

Your sex– Trigger finger is more common in women.

Carpal tunnel syndrome surgery–  Trigger finger may be a complication associated with surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome surgery, especially during the first six months after surgery.

Surgical and other procedures

Steroid injection- An injection of a steroid medication near or into the tendon sheath may reduce inflammation and allow the tendon to glide freely again. This is the most common treatment, and it’s usually effective for a year or more in most people treated. But sometimes it takes more than one injection.

For people with diabetes, steroid injections tend to be less effective.

Percutaneous release- After numbing palm, the doctor inserts a sturdy needle into the tissue around the affected tendon. Moving the needle and your finger helps break apart the constriction that’s blocking the smooth motion of the tendon.

This treatment may be done under ultrasound control so the doctor can see where the tip of the needle is under the skin to be sure it opens the tendon sheath without damaging the tendon or nearby nerves. This procedure is usually done in the doctor’s office or in an office procedure room.

Surgery- Working through a small incision near the base of the affected finger, a surgeon can cut open the constricted section of tendon sheath. This procedure is usually done in an operating room.

Medications

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs — such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB) or naproxen (Aleve) — may relieve the pain but are unlikely to relieve the swelling constricting the tendon sheath or trapping the tendon.

Therapy

Rest- Avoid activities that require repetitive gripping, repeated grasping or the prolonged use of vibrating hand-held machinery until your symptoms improve. If you can’t avoid these activities altogether, padded gloves may offer some protection.

A splint- Doctor may have you wear a splint at night to keep the affected finger in an extended position for up to six weeks. The splint helps rest the tendon.

Stretching exercises- Doctor may also suggest gentle exercises to help maintain mobility in the finger.

Hello, If pregnancy is ruled out then the delay is likely to be stress induced and if menses do not arrive in next 7 days then she can opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterones.
