Today I will be talking on a very hot topic is sonography really needed in pregnancy whenever patients are advanced sonography they always have this fear is sonography harmful to my baby and doctor why are you advising so many sonography. So friends today I'll be clearing your doubts about sonography. Believe me sonography is a very safe investigation because in sonography only sound energy of sound waves called Ultrasonic waves are used and these are very harmless and patient have developed this fear about sonography because in ancient times sometimes pregnant patient is used to be advised to take an x-ray and the doctor is not sure whether there is enough space for the baby to come out during normal delivery.
So to assess that when there was no sonography sometimes a patient should be advised X-rays and X rays are harmful to the foetus but today we are not doing X-rays anymore we are using for sonography and sonography is very safe at any time of pregnancy for when should the first sonography be done lot of people have this may babies small small doctor why are you advising sonography at this stage so when is when should ideally with the first sonography done in pregnancy in the first sonography has to be done between 6 to 8 weeks.
Why you should not do it very early because we won't be able to see anything you should Ideally be done between 6 to 8 weeks and why should we do it so early first of all to confirm the pregnancy and for fetal wellbeing whether the baby is growing well and thirdly we need to see the Heartbeat of the baby I am seeing the habit of the baby is sheer bliss for us and IVF consultant and patience keep calling me experticaly saying that doctor why UPTU has come positive my pregnancy test has come positive so should we do a sonography. I always tell them to be patient weight for 6 to 8 weeks and then do a sonography to see the heartbeat other thing is weather the foetus is single or multiple whether it is only one baby or more than one baby.
The last but not the least to rule out ectopic pregnancy whether the pregnancy is growing inside the uterus which is normal or the pair pregnancy is growing outside the uterus so what happens if the pregnancy is going outside the uterus opos chef in the tubes because tubes is the commonest site for ectopic pregnancy week pregnancy in grows at a site other than the uterus it can cause a lot of complications and life threatening problem suppose it grows in the tube that you can rupture that can be a lot of bleeding the patient can go into shock so for all this things we need to do sonography at early stage between 6 to 8 weeks then when should be the next sonography be done the next sonography is should be done.
I really between 11 to 13 weeks we call it has the early anomaly scan what do you mean by Anomalous the various abnormality is which we can see at that stage of life so 11 to 13 weeks will be the early anomaly scan after that the patient needs to do sonography at 18 to 20 weeks of this is the late anomaly scan so what we do in this sonography is actually a special sonography takes a lot of time on the relations path because the patient needs to see all parts of the baby in the heart the spine the fingers and all these things to know whether the baby is normal or not and then the latest can select 26 to 28 weeks of 34-36 weeks for every time we do a solo graphy it is true in East sonography is it different parameters we don't be the same thing cause has the baby grows that a different things which need attention for Friends rest assured whenever you are doctor advice is sonography please get it done because it is actually a boon for a speak and diagnose so many things by doing sonography and help the mother and the baby to be healthy.
And wish you all a safe and Happy pregnancy thank you if you have any doubt about prgnancy you can contact me at lybrate.com

Angioplasty is referred to as a cardiac procedure, which involves widening the narrowed section of a coronary artery. Usually performed by an interventional cardiologist, this procedure is performed in a cardiac catheterization lab, short for a cath lab. An interventional cardiologist takes extra care to review the risks, in addition to obtaining your counsel prior to preparing you for the procedure. The physician also refers to your medical history in order to determine the amount of anesthesia that should be used.
What happens during the procedure?
Although mild sedatives will be administered to help you relax, the process requires you to remain awake throughout the procedure. The procedure of angioplasty involves cardiac catheterization. The doctor numbs the intended site through medications and inserts the catheter. Following such the doctor inserts a thin sheath in your artery, oftentimes in your groin or arm. A long, narrow, empty tube known as a catheter, is then carefully guided through the sheath, through the blood vessels and into the arteries near the heart.
A little amount of liquid is then injected through the catheter, which is moved through the chambers, valves and vessels of the heart. This movement is then pictured with the help of X-rays, with which the doctors can diagnose the condition and working of the coronary arteries and the heart valve.
The surgical procedure lasts for around 1.5 - 2.5 hours, but the preparation and post - surgical procedures may take several hours. A patient is usually made to stay overnight to be monitored by medical personnel.
What to expect before an Angioplasty?
Most people are made to undergo a blood test and electrocardiogram before having an angioplasty. Usually scheduled a day before the procedure, such tests usually require separate appointments. Usually patients are restricted to eat since 12 hours before the exam.
What happens post-procedure?
After the procedure, you will be instructed to remain flat for 5-6 hours without bending your legs, so as to prevent bleeding. The nurse will instruct you as to when you can get up from your bed. You may not be permitted to drink or eat until the groin sheath is removed as such can cause nausea.
If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

In ayurveda, charak samhita describes eight different types of bodies that are disease prone. Out of these, the obese body is described as the one afflicted with the most diseases and troubles. Obesity is the condition or physical state of the body when excessive deposition of fat takes place in the adipose tissue.
Extra fat puts a strain on the heart, kidneys, liver and the joints such as the hips, knees and ankles and thus, overweight people are susceptible to several diseases like coronary thrombosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, gout, liver and gall bladder disorders. Chief cause of obesity is overeating, irregular eating habits and not following the rules of eating or mixing non-compatible food items in one meal.
To decrease weight and get rid of obesity three things must be kept in mind:
1. Controlling eating habits.
2. Regular exercise.
3. Avoiding the causes of weight gain
Diet recommended to lose weight
Juice of half a lemon mixed in a glass of warm water and a teaspoon of honey.
Wheat or mung bean sprouts and a cup of skimmed milk.
A glass of orange, pineapple or carrot juice.

A teaspoonful of fresh lemon juice may also be added.--fasting on honey and lime- juice is highly beneficial in the treatment of obesity without the loss of energy and appetite. For this, mix one teaspoon of fresh honey with the juice of half a lime in a glass of lukewarm water.

What is premenstrual syndrome (PMS)? In a layman's language, it is that time of the month you don't really want to unnecessarily bother a woman or you might have to face the brunt of an emotional outburst. In medical terms, it is a combination of emotional, physical, psychological changes that occur in a woman after ovulation and culminates with the ending of her menstrual flow. The most common mood-related symptoms are irritability, depression, crying, oversensitivity, and mood swings.
The most common physical symptoms are fatigue, bloating, breast tenderness, acne, and appetite changes with food cravings. In severe cases, anger, irritability, anxiety and tension leads to loss of the functioning ability of a woman. If you've been there or are suffering, you are not alone. There are scores of women around the world who experience these symptoms. Here are ways to minimize and get rid of PMS.
1. Control PMS with diet changes: Certain food types in general are not a healthy choice but can cause more harm than good during PMS. Depending on what factor affects you the most, cut down on these types of food.
- Salt: Excess salt can lead to bloating
- Caffeine: Can lead to anxiety, sleeplessness and irritability
- Alcohol: The concoction for depression
- Sugar: Can cause mood swings
As always, eating more fruits, veggies and grains at the right time can keep you healthy and prepared for those dreaded days.
2. Exercise: Exercise is a mood lifter. It gets you into shape, adds to your stamina and slowly but steadily boosts your confidence to become slimmer, stronger, and fitter. The trick is to pick up on an exercise you love. Hit the road and run free with your thoughts or turn on the music and dance with aerobics.
3. Stock up on vitamins: Hormonal imbalances are the primary cause behind PMS. Though it is not proven, stocking up on some essential vitamins like calcium, potassium and minerals can give you more strength to fight the symptoms.
4. Herbal remedies: They've been around for hundreds of years and you are likely to have an aunt or grandma swear by one of these cures. From ginger to primrose oil, these cures can balance your hormonal activity in a natural way. You will need to experiment to see what really suits your need.
5. Take a break: No matter what physical or emotional trauma you go through, it can double up because of stress and lack of sleep. Knowing your 'off' days, it's best you find a way to take some time off for yourself at a spa or try meditation and deep breathing. Do what you love to do to. Keep your mind calm and clear. Listen to music, take a walk with your dog or simply read a good book.
To start with, change your diet, take a few supplements and herbs, and start exercising, and you should see the change in the first few cycles itself. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
