Hello Friends!

I am Dr. Suman Nigam. I am graduated from Lucknow. Here I am practicing as a gynecologist and obstetrician and I have a special interest in infertility. I deal with the problems of women and children. I have a clinic in Vasant Kunj, Delhi. Aaj me apko menstrual disorder ke bare me btaungi. Ye ek aisa time hota hai jisme ldki me kafi chances aate hain. Physical and psychological. Jab menses me disturbance aata hai to patient kafi disturb ho jata hai. Iske kya kya disorder ho skte hai. Excessive bleeding, severe pain, bleeding hone ke baad kuch time ke lia menses ka band ho jana. Sabse pehle hume ye pta hona chaiye ki normal menstrual flow kaisa hona chaiye. As per WHO, menstrual ke 3 saal ke baad inka flow kam ho jata hai. 2-7 days ki bleeding normal hoti hai. Average blood loss 35ml hona chaiye. Agar patient ko 7 days se jyada bleeding ho rhi hai or sanitary napkin 6 se jyada use ho rhi hain or periods bhi jldi jldi aa jate hain ya fir 45 days se aage ja rha hai to patient ko gynecologist se milna chaiye.

Starting ke 2 saal egg nhi banta hai. Islia ye disturbance aa skte hain. Agar heavy bleeding hai to hume dekhna pdta hai ki hormonal chances kaise hain, thyroid ka disturbance nhi hai, excessive stress to nhi hai. Eating pattern kya hai. Patient kitna physically active hai. Jayad exercise bhi krna ka effect menses pe pdta hai. Hume dekhna pdta hai ki ye kisi bimari ki vjha se to nhi ho rha hai. Hume dekhna pdta hai ki fibroid to nhi hai ya fir koi or problem to nhi hai. Hume bleeding disorder and ovulatory disorder bhi dekhna hota hai. Iske lia different types ki investigation ki jati hai. Like blood, hormonal test and ultrasound kia jata hai. Jayad blood loss hone se patient me anemia hone ke chances bhi hote hain. Islia unki problem ke hisab se iska treatment dia jata hai. Hormonal pills dia jate hain.

So that cycle regulate ho jaye. Next problem hai dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation). Lekin kuch cases me ye painkiller dene se bhi thik ho jata hai. Ye bhi dekha jata hai ki koi infection to nhi hai. Ab ye bhi dekha jata hai ki absence of menses na ho. Agar patient ke sare body parts bhi ache se develop ho gye hain to bhi ye problem hai to usko treatment dia jata hai. Agar patient 14 years ki hai or uske sexual parts developed nhi hai to bhi ye ek concern hai jo dekha jata hai. Ab ye bhi ho skta hai ki 3-4 cycle aane ke baad bhi periods band ho gye hain to hume uska cause dekhna pta hai. Jaise PCOS bhi ho skta hai or hormonal changes. Isi way me patient ko evaluate kr k treatment dia jata hai. Apko in baaton ka dhyan rkhna hai or time pe hi gynaecologist se milna hai.

Thank You!

All About Vitamin D3 Deficiency!

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
All About Vitamin D3 Deficiency!

Vitamins are extremely important for proper functioning of various body systems. Vitamin D3 plays a very crucial role in proper functioning of bones and joints. Deficiency of this vitamin is quite common but can be identified and managed easily.  Read on to know more about its functions, causes of deficiency, symptoms, and management.

Function: Vitamin D3 is essential for the absorption of calcium from the food that is consumed. A decrease in the amount of vitamin D3 leads to poor calcium absorption, resulting in thin, soft, brittle bones.

Causes: Some of the possible causes of vitamin D3 deficiency (and ways to manage them) are listed below:

  1. Reduced intake: People with a strict vegan diet may be consuming reduced amounts of this important chemical. Most natural food sources are animal based including fish, fish oils, fortified milk, egg yolks and beef liver.

  2. Limited sun exposure: People who spend a lot of time indoors are likely to have this deficiency. People who wear sunscreen constantly, wear long robes for religious reasons, live in the polar areas, upper/lower hemispheres are all prone to vitamin D3 deficiency.

  3. Darker complexion: The body’s ability to make vitamin D3 when exposed to the sun is reduced if there is more melanin in the skin.

  4. Obesity: Vitamin D is extracted from the blood by fat cells and people with BMI of more than 30 have a vitamin deficiency.

Symptoms:  While some people may go completely asymptomatic with this condition, others could develop significant symptoms.

  1. Bone pain and aches: When there is less calcium getting incorporated into the bones, pains and aches leading to fatigue are common.

  2. Depression: The areas of the brain that regulate mood contain vitamin D receptors, and low levels of this vitamin can lead to depression. They are also at higher risk of developing cognitive conditions like schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s and dementia.

  3. Gut problems: Vitamin D is fat soluble and in people with stomach conditions like Crohn’s or IBD, the gut functioning is altered and so vitamin D absorption is reduced.

  4. Increased risk of heart disease:  Both the risk of developing heart disease and the severity of the disease went up considerably when there is vitamin D deficiency. This is given their role in controlling inflammation and improving immune function.

  5. Lesser chances of surviving cancer:  In patients with colorectal cancer, lymphoma, and breast cancer, increasing vitamin D levels improved cancer prognosis by 4%. The chances of developing prostate cancer are also increased in patients with vitamin D3 deficiency.

Management: Providing the required amounts of vitamin D3 through diet and supplements is the best way to manage this.  Check with your doctor to know the optimal levels and plan for replacement accordingly.

HIV/AIDS - How Can We Combat It?

HIV/AIDS - How Can We Combat It?

Hearing that a person is HIV positive instantly makes us wary of him or her and unconsciously we may begin avoiding social interactions with them. However, HIV does not spread through the air or by water and hence there is no reason to ostracize HIV positive people. To understand how to prevent the transmission of HIV it is essential to first understand how the virus is transferred from one person to another. There are three ways in which this virus can be transmitted from an HIV positive person to another. These are:

-Through blood

-Through bodily fluids such as semen and vaginal or rectal fluids

-From a mother to a child

Keeping this in mind, here are a few ways to prevent the transferring of HIV from one person to another.

- Use only Disposable Syringes: Getting pricked by a needle that has been used on a HIV positive patient can increase your risk of suffering from the disease. Hence, insist on using a fresh needle for blood tests etc. Also ensure that the syringe and needle and destroyed after being used.

- Registered Blood Banks: In case you need a blood transfusion, get blood only from registered blood banks. These blood banks need to run HIV screening tests before collecting blood and hence are guaranteed to have only HIV negative blood as opposed to local quacks.

- Use a Condom: The only way to prevent the transference of HIV cells while having intercourse is by using a condom. This is essential not only for vaginal intercourse but for anal intercourse as well.

- Get Tested: Today, an HIV screening test can be easily done and your results are guaranteed to be kept confidential. STDs can increase your risk of getting infected with HIV or spreading it to others. Get tested regularly for STDs and insist that your partners are checked for it as well. This is crucial if you have more than one sexual partner.

- Limit the Number of Sexual Partners: The more number of people you have sex with, the higher your chance of getting infected with the virus and transmitting it to others. Remember, HIV has no overt symptoms that are visible to the naked eye.

HIV cannot be cured but it can be controlled through medication. Hence, if you suffer from this disease, follow the doctor's prescription religiously to prevent transmitting the virus to your partner.
