Way To Reduce Swollen Feet In Pregnancy!

Way To Reduce Swollen Feet In Pregnancy!

Pregnancy is a normal life function that many women go through. Yet, this is a function or a part of life where one has to take special care of one’s health and condition as there are many biological changes that happen in one’s body. Swollen legs and ankles are a common part of one’s pregnancy. This condition is most commonly known as edema and it usually occurs when fluid collects in the tissue. This in turn happens when the blood chemistry changes and the fluid gets routed to the tissue. This is a common occurrence due to the hormonal changes that one goes through during pregnancy. The condition usually troubles pregnant ladies during their third trimester.

Read on to find out the various ways in which one can deal with it.

  1. When to call a doctor: Call a doctor or a midwife for a thorough check up if you happen to see any puffiness or swelling in your face and eyes. This could point at a more serious problem like the onset of preeclampsia. Also, if you happen to notice that one leg is more swollen than the other, then you may want to see a doctor about it, as it could mean that there is a blood clot in the leg.
  2. Put your feet up: This is especially important if you are at a desk all day. The best way to deal with such swelling is to put your feet up every once in a while, so that the swelling may reduce. You can use a foot stool or even a pile of books for this purpose.
  3. Breaks: If you are constantly sitting or lying down, it would be a good idea to give it a break and walk around a little so that there is better blood circulation. This also keeps the blood from pooling into the lower regions of the legs, which can prevent an increase in the swelling.
  4. Comfortable footwear: One should stick to flat and comfortable footwear with an even elevation as well as foam soles so that the comfort level while walking and standing is optimum. Choose your shoes so that they can accommodate your swelling instead of pinching your feet. Also, you can choose to wear snug socks and stockings, which will form a band around your feet. This will ensure that the swelling does not increase to a painful level. At the same time, you must avoid socks that have bands, which are too tight as this may lead to blood pooling and subsequent swelling in the legs and ankles.
  5. Water: Drinking plenty of water ensures that there is less fluid retention. This is one of the best ways of fighting edema whether or not you are pregnant.

I am a 7 month breast feeding mother, last month I had my menstrual periods after 5 months, however it didn't occur this month, and it's 15 days late by now. Tested twice with prega news and I can but the result is negative. Please suggest what may be the reason for delay in MC? Should I go for any more test or is it normal?

It is common not to get period or scanty period or delayed periods when breast feeding is going on. So during this time it is important to use reliable family planning method so that either you are not worried about pregnancy now and then or don’t miss diagnosing pregnancy early.

What Should You Know About Diabetic Macular Oedema

What Should You Know About Diabetic Macular Oedema

The diabetic eye is considered to be the leading cause of the blindness among the working age. It is usually caused by the change in the blood vessels on the retina of the eye. Retina is that layer of the eye which is light sensitive. In case of diabetic macular oedema, the blood vessels cause the fluid to leak into the retina.

How does diabetic macular oedema cause vision loss:
The loss of vision only occurs when the fluid reaches the macula. Macula is the center of the retina which is responsible for a sharp vision. When the fluid reaches the macula it builds up and causes inflammation. Initially this is not noticed but with time the diabetic macular oedema causes a change in the vision making it more blurred. A healthy macula is very essential for a good vision.

Who is at risk of diabetic macular oedema:
People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of getting diabetic macular oedema. Also other risk factors are:

  1. About 0ne in three people with diabetes develop macular oedema
  2. Poor control of blood sugars
  3. High blood pressure
  4. High cholesterol level
  5. Pregnancy
  6. In smokers

How to reduce the risks of diabetic macula oedema:
The risk of diabetic macula oedema can be reduced by quitting smoking, and to make sure that blood sugar and cholesterol levels are under control. This is achieved by regularly measuring the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

How is diabetic macular oedema detected:
Diabetic macular oedema can be detected during regular visits to the doctor. Patients with diabetes should be offered screening tests. Digital photographs of the patients can be taken as they show the early signs of diabetic macular oedema, though changes in vision might not be noticed at this time.

What happens when you attend the medical retina clinic:
When you go for an eye checkup you will undergo a comprehensive examination which includes:

  1. Visual acuity test: This is a sight test which measures how well you can see the different distances
  2. Eye pressure test: This test is done to measure the pressure of the eyes and usually drops which numb the eyes are used when this test is conducted
  3. Dilated eye examination: In this the drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils and then the back of the eye is examined.
  4. Fluorescein angiography: This is a diagnostic test in which an injection of fluorescein dye is given in the hand and then the photographs are taken.
  5. Optical coherence tomography: This is done to measure the retinal swelling

Hello, This is due to progesterone effect when breast tissue tends to soften and become sore as well. You may use hot fomentation packs twice a day for 15min each and it should soothe your pain. Regards

Hi doctor
I am Suffering from unexplained infertility since 5 years. And put on weight also. Please help me out
Thank...
If you have put on weight that means you r most probably suffering from pcod, which can be diagnosed with ultrasound and fsh, lh test. Primary objective of your treatment is weight reduction and maintain normal bmi of 18-25. This will regularize the monthly cycles and also help you get pregnant. You can take metformin to reduce weight. For reducing your weight you should have brisk walk or jogging for 4-5 km daily, high protein diet (fish, chicken, mutton without fat, pulses, mushrooms), low carbohydrate diet (avoid rice, chapatti, bread, poha, upma, idli, dosa, potato, sugar etc and can use bhakri instead) and low fat i. E. Less oil and preferably use rice bran oil.

Hi Is there any treatment for loss of desire for women. I am 40 suffering from menopause.
it is natural for sexual desire to go away around menopause, it is not an illness, it is an age related change

I am in a relationship and we get intimate at times. I am afraid about getting pregnant. How can I avoid pregnancy?

The best way is to take barrier contraception that is you have to use condoms. Any emergency pill taken by your partner can cause harm to her.

All About Growth Hormone Deficiency

All About Growth Hormone Deficiency

Growth hormone, or somatropin, is responsible for cell growth as well as reproduction. But insufficient somatropin production by the pituitary gland may result in lack in height. It is mostly caused by a serious brain injury, any prevalent medical condition or might occur as a birth defect.

Types 

- Congenital GHD - This form of GHD appears from at the time of birth itself.
- Acquired GHD - GHD can be acquired during later life as a result of trauma, infection, tumor growth within the brain or radiation therapy.
- Idiopathic GHD - Idiopathic GHD is the third, and comparatively worst kind of GHD since it has no treatment.

GHD is mostly permanent, but can also be transient.

Read on to know how to detect whether you or your child is suffering from growth hormone deficiency (GHD).

Symptoms 

I) Childhood onset 

-      Restricted height- Compared to other children of your child's age, he/she maybe of shorter height, which is a rather conclusive sign to detect somatropin deficiency.
-      Chubby and comparatively younger appearance- Your child may have a proportionate body, but if he/she is unnaturally chubby and has a baby-face compared to other children, he/she may be suffering from GHD.
-      Late puberty- Your child's puberty maybe later than usual or even not appear at all, depending upon the gravity of the GHD.
-      Hypoglycemia and exaggerated jaundice- Low blood sugar is amongst the most primary manifestations of GHD, along with extended duration of jaundice.
-      Micro-penis- Micro penis condition is one of the incident signs of GHD, which later escalates to growth deficit as the infant gets older.

II ) Adult onset

-      Fatigue- Adults with GHD may experience extreme tiredness throughout the day, with reduced muscle strength.
-      Osteoporosis- Osteoporosis, along with bodily deformities, is a common sign in adults with GHD.
-      Lipid abnormalities- A test of your lipid profile may reveal abnormalities in LDL cholesterol, insulin resistance, and impaired cardiac functions.

Tests to determine GHD

-      Physical test- A chart is drawn to determine the proportion of height and weight with respect to your age to detect anomalies.
-      Hand X-ray- A hand X-ray can determine whether the age of bones are at par with your age.
-      MRI-MRI scan can determine the health of your brain and pituitary gland.
-      Test for other hormones- Growth Hormone may not be solely responsible for your health condition, so it is important to determine if other hormone levels are all normal.

Treatment

-      Hormone supplements- Hormone supplements like corticothyroids (hydrocortisone or prednisone), Levothyroxine (levoxyl, synthroid, etc), and others work to replenish the deficiency of pituitary hormones.
-      Growth hormone injection- GH is injected beneath your skin, to cure GDH. This is a long-term treatment and requires constant monitoring.

Hi. I'm 25 years old. I had unprotected sex on 7 may with my boyfriend in car in sitting position, much of his sperms discharge was out but for safety I had unwanted pill immediately.

It is very less likely that you will conceive as you had inter course in the the relatively safe period and had an emergency contraceptive pill later. I-pills have side effects like irregular menstrual bleeds and abdominal pains and should not be used frequently. At present you should wait for your scheduled period to start. If it is missed then you should do a urine pregnancy test. If it's positive then it is possible that you are pregnant, if it's negative you may not worry and just wait for the periods to begin.
