Sudden Weight Loss - Why Is It Bad?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Sudden Weight Loss - Why Is It Bad?

Sudden weight loss is extremely common. It is mainly adopted by people who are depressed because of their weight and want to reduce weight rapidly. There can be various reasons why people would want to adopt sudden weight loss techniques. Few of these reasons are obesity, feelings of social neglect, heart diseases and inactivity or lethargy.

Sometimes many people want to reduce weight as soon as possible. They try to lose weight by dieting or by consuming certain medications. This might result in a lot of complications such as:

  1. If you reduce weight rapidly, it might cause the skin to be left behind and also it will cause the skin to sag. This also creates stretch marks on the surface of your skin from where you intend to lose weight. This might give a very unsightly appearance to your body. So it is better to reduce weight slowly.
  2. Many people try to starve themselves while dieting to get faster results. This is extremely harmful for your body. It can result in dehydration and sometimes also lead to nausea or fainting.
  3. Rapid weight loss can also make you lose water from your body. This can be extremely detrimental for your health. It is difficult to burn a lot of calories in a short time instead you might be burning water from your body which is very harmful.
  4. Sudden weight loss is not a permanent solution. You should be very careful while adopting rapid forms of weight loss exercise or diet, you might lose weight for a limited period, but since your body isn’t trained to adapt to temporary and rapid changes, you might start gaining weight rapidly instead.
  5. Rapid weight loss can also lead to the formation of gallstones. It can also cause infection because of obstruction in the normal flow of the bile from the gallbladder to the intestine.
  6. Hair loss can also occur, if you are trying to lose weight rapidly. Protein intake gets reduced when you follow a strict diet plan for rapid weight loss. This can make your hair extremely brittle and dry hence causing it to break.

If you want to reduce weight, it is better to follow a diet chart which does not make you starve and rather balances your diet.

Common STDs in Men

Common STDs in Men

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are the infections that spread primarily from unprotected sexual intercourse or any kind of sexual contact. Men, like women, are equally prone to contracting STDs on having unprotected sexual intercourse; anal, vaginal or oral. Having multiple sex partners just increases the risks of it. So, you need to consult a specialist sexologist if anything these sort of things happening to you:

Common STD Symptoms in Men

  1. Blisters on or around penis 

  2. Spots, bumps or lesions on the penis 

  3. Discharge (clear, white, or yellow) 

  4. Oozing from the tip of the penis (thick or thin) 

  5. Painful urination 

  6. Painful ejaculation 

  7. Itching on the tip of the penis 

  8. Rash on the penis, testicles, or groin

Here is a list of STDs for men

  1. Chlamydia- Chlamydia is a type of bacterial STD transmitted during oral, anal or vaginal sex with an already infected person. Some of the symptoms of Chlamydia in men are swollen testicles, penile discharge or pain while urinating.

  2. GonorrheaThis is another bacterial infection, majorly affecting the urethra, anus or the throat and primarily spreads through vaginal, oral or anal sex with someone already suffering from it. The symptoms are quite similar to those of Chlamydia.

  3. Hepatitis BHepatitis B Virus (HBV) is the cause of the disease Hepatitis B and can cause severe inflammation of the liver. It spreads from one person to the other on coming into contact with the bodily fluids or blood of the person affected. Few signs of Hepatitis B include jaundice, vomiting, nausea, body aches, mild fever, lethargy and appetite loss.

  4. Herpes (Simplex) - It is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) and generally tends to develop on or near to the mouth and the genitals. Primarily, herpes spreads through direct contact with the genitals or mouth of a person already diagnosed with the same.

  5. Syphilis- Another bacterial Sexually Transmitted Disease, unprotected oral, vaginal and anal sex are the primary carriers of this disease. It is considered to be one of the most serious STDs because the risks of contracting HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) get magnified once infected with Syphilis.

  6. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) - In men, HPV is capable of causing cancers in the throat, anus or the penis. It is either passed on through skin-to-skin or unprotected sexual contact with an infected partner.

Preventing STDs

Many people can be infected with an STD without experiencing any visible symptoms. This means that practicing safe sex is crucial if you want to prevent STD infection.

The only way to completely prevent an STD is abstinence from any type of sexual contact or contact with open sores and bodily fluids of an infected person. But there are other ways to prevent STDs too.

Condoms during intercourse and dental dams or barriers during oral sex are proven effective when used correctly. Refraining from sex with multiple partners and instead opting for a monogamous sexual relationship can also help to prevent STDs.To understand it better and get treated you can always consult a sexologist.

Frequent Health Check-ups - How They Keep Diseases At Bay?

Frequent Health Check-ups - How They Keep Diseases At Bay?

For those who are under the age of 35 and healthy, an annual checkup is not necessary, one every 2 to 3 years is fine. Even between 35-45 years if you continue to live a healthy lifestyle and face no medical problems, an annual medical checkup is not essential. But, for those who are above the age of 45, an annual checkup is recommended. The regular checkup will detect any medical issue, which can then be treated effectively. And as you know, early detection can help overcome even deadly diseases like cancer.

What should a checkup involve?

  1. Essentially a full body checkup starts with obtaining patient and family history to check for any genetic problems. Details on lifestyle habits and exercise routine are also recorded.
  2. It is followed by a thorough physical examination, which includes measuring blood pressure, checking eye and thyroid, reflex examination, chest examination etc.
  3. Sometimes depending on factors like the age and patient history a rectal examination may be done. For women, sometimes pap smear (test for cervical cancer) is also recommended.
  4. A blood test is generally also done. In case, the patient suffers from other problems related tests like Cholesterol, liver function tests, LDLs, HDLs etc. are done.
  5. The BMI (Body Mass Index) of the patient is taken to measure the weight. Nowadays a waist-hip ratio is generally taken as it offers a more accurate measure.
  6. After the examination and tests are complete, it is essential that you have a clear conversation with your doctor, and understand how your body is working currently. In case there is a medical problem, make sure that your doctor gives you details about its treatment and cure.
  7. Don't be afraid to ask questions in case you aren't clear about something. The doctor is there to help you lead a healthy and balanced life.
  8. It helps, if you conduct a self-examination of your body at regular intervals. Once a month, conduct a skin examination from head to toe for any abnormal spots, rashes or moles. Consult your doctor on the best way to go about it if necessary.

Infertile? Consider Surrogacy

DNB - Obstetrics & Gynecology, MBBS

Infertile? Consider Surrogacy

Surrogacy is the method that is used for reproduction in which a woman other than the woman, who wants to have the baby, agrees to undertake pregnancy and give birth to a child for the couple that appoints her. A couple can opt for surrogacy in the following conditions.

- Infertility
In the case of females who cannot reproduce due to infertility or some other medical conditions that make the process risky for both the mother and the childlike heart diseases, liver infirmities and high blood pressure, surrogacy can opt for so that the couple can experience the bliss of becoming parents.

- If you are a single parent
A single parent can opt for surrogacy in order to fulfil his/her dream of having a child to live for.

- Other factors
There are several other factors when a couple might want to opt for surrogacy. For instance, in couples, where the female is too busy building a stable career for herself and she cannot take the risk of opting for pregnancy, surrogacy can come to their rescue. Also, repeated miscarriages, pelvic disorder, hysterectomy, an impaired uterus or the absence of uterus can act as reasons to opt for surrogacy.

There are a few factors that need to be considered before opting for surrogacy. They are listed below.

Type of surrogacy

Traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy are the two options available. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother not only carries the embryo in her womb until childbirth but also donates the egg. However in gestational surrogacy, the egg is taken from the biological mother and impregnated in the womb of the surrogate mother through in vitro fertilization techniques. The intended parents need to take a decision regarding the type of surrogacy that they wish to opt for.

Surrogacy laws

The intended parents must be aware of the surrogacy laws prevalent in their country so as to make sure that they can go through the entire process smoothly. For instance, in India, it is mandatory that the surrogate child should be biologically related to one of the two parents.

Cost of surrogacy

Another important factor that needs to be considered while opting for surrogacy is the cost of the undertaking. It can involve high costs due to the unpredictability of the situations surrounding the process, so the financial stability of the intended parents should be kept in mind. Also, choose the right agency or even if you choose an independent candidate to become the surrogate mother for your child, make a wise choice.

Your Egg Reserve

Your Egg Reserve

Your Egg Reserve

Ovarian Reserve Testing – AMH

Females are born with approximately 1 million eggs and this number declines with age through natural attrition and ovulation but , the rate at which a woman can ‘lose’ eggs during her reproductive life varies greatly from individual to individual .

The number of eggs remaining at a given time, in a female is her ‘ovarian reserve.’

we can now estimate your ovarian reserve with a very simple blood test, it measures a hormone known as AMH; or Anti-Mullerian hormone, which can give us a good indication of your fertility status and an estimate of your ovarian reserve.

Basis behind the test?

AMH is produced by the granulosa cells in the developing early antral follicles of the ovary and as the number of eggs decline, the number of small antral follicles also decline along with the AMH.

This means that AMH is a clinically useful measure of ovarian reserve so as an early indication of your fertility status AMH can help you decide whether to start a family sooner or later.

What if my AMH is low?

Once the ovary runs out of eggs, the body can’t produce more and often the last remaining eggs can be of lessor quality so If you’re in a relationship and have a low ovarian reserve, the best option for having children is to go ahead and try as soon as possible.

If a woman experiences premature menopause, Dr. Richika can take you through all your viable options including the use of donor eggs.

We believe that information and knowledge is power and this test is one way you can take charge of your fertility future today.

You may be at increased risk of having a low AMH if you have;

प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स - How To Pregnant Tips?

तुरंत और आसानी से गर्भवती होने के तरीके–प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स

एक महिला के लिए बच्चे को जन्म देना काफी प्रसन्नता की बात होती है, और वह इस दिन की काफी प्रतीक्षा करती है।गर्भावस्था की स्थिति अचानक नहीं आती, इसमें गणना का काफी बड़ा हाथ होता है।
गर्भवती होने के लिए आपका फर्टिलाइजेशन (fertilization) अच्छे से होना चाहिए। आपको अपने मासिक धर्म (periodic cycle) का आंकलन करके उसी हिसाब से चलना चाहिए।
शारीरिक सम्बन्ध के फलस्वरूप गर्भवती होने से पहले इस बारे में अच्छे से सोच लें कि आप असल में एक बच्चे को जन्म देना चाहती हैं या नहीं।
इनफर्टिलिटी (infertility) की समस्या से ग्रस्त लोगों को डॉक्टर से सलाह करनी चाहिए तथा गर्भवती होने के अन्य तरीके प्रयोग में लाने चाहिए।
आजकल जीवनशैली में परिवर्तन की वजह से पुरुष और महिलाओं की फर्टिलिटी का स्तर काफी कम हो गया है।

प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए, जोड़े को अपने आप को तनाव से मुक्त रखने की जरुरत है|
तनावग्रस्त रहने से गर्भ रहने में मुश्किलें आ सकती हैं|
*गर्भावस्था के दौरान खून निकलना और उनके कारण*
महिलाओं के लिए अण्डोत्सर्ग का समय जाननेवाले किट का उपयोग करके सही समय का पता लगाना चाहिए।
अण्डोत्सर्ग से पूर्व 24-36 घंटे मूत्र में एलएच की वृद्धि होती है और यह समय प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती बनने(to get pregnancy) के लिए लाभकारी होता है|
प्रेगनेंट होने के लिए,
पुरुषों को ज्यादा व्यायाम नहीं करना चाहिए,
गर्म पानी से टब बाथ नहीं लेना चाहिए और ज्यादा तंग कच्छे नहीं पेहेनने चाहिए|

प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती होने के बेहतरीन उपाय और प्राकृतिक तरीके (natural ways to get pregnant fast)

कुछ स्त्रियों में आसानी से गर्भ रहता है पर कुछ स्त्रियों के लिए यह बड़ा मुश्किल होता है|
कुछ आसान तरीकों का पालन करके प्रेग्नेंट होने के टिप्स से ऐसी स्त्रियाँ प्रेग्नेंट/गर्भवती हो सकती हैं|

गर्भवती महिलाओं को नींद लाने में सहायता करने के लिए कुछ तरीके
स्त्रियों के शरीर में बीज 12-24घंटे तक फलन के लिए उपलब्ध होते हैं जबकि शुक्राणु ३ से ५ दिनों तक जिंदा रह सकते हैं|
इसलिए 28 दिनों के बाद आनेवाले मासिक धर्म में पहले 11से 21दिन तक संबंध रखने से उपयोग हो सकता है|
अक्सर संबंध रखना गर्भ रहने का आसान तरीका है|
शरीर की ऐसी स्थिति जहाँ शुक्राणु आसानी से बीज तक पहुँच सके ऐसी स्थिति होना मदद करता है|
जोड़े को तनाव मुक्त होना बहुत जरुरी होता है|
अगर ऊपर दिए गए किसी भी सुझाव से प्रेग्नेंट नहीं होती तो डॉक्टर की सलाह लें|

*प्रेग्नेंट होने के लिए क्या करें*
*वज़न घटाना (losing weight)*
कई बार वज़न ज़्यादा होने की वजह से महिलाओं को गर्भधारण करने में दिक्कतें पेश आती हैं।
उन्हें बच्चे को जन्म देने में काफी परेशानी होती है, क्योंकि इस प्रक्रिया में उनके शरीर में जमा वसा एक बाधा बन जाती है।
अतः एक बच्चे को जन्म देने के लिए पुरुष और महिला दोनों का ही स्वस्थ रहना काफी ज़रूरी है।
अत्याधिक वज़न वाली महिलाओं को इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या होने की संभावना काफी ज़्यादा होती है।
अतः गर्भधारण का प्रयास करने से पहले महिलाओं को 2 से 3 महीने तक व्यायाम करके अपना वज़न कम करने का प्रयास करना चाहिए।

*केमिकल्स से दूर रहें (be away from chemicals)*
कारखानों तथा प्रयोगशालाओं में काम करने वाली महिलाएं रोज़ाना कठोर केमिकल्स के संपर्क में आती हैं।
छपाई के कारखानों तथा फसलों के लिए कीटनाशक बनाने वाले उद्योगों में काम करने वालों को भी इनफर्टिलिटी की समस्या घेर सकती है।
एक बार अगर आपने गर्भधारण का फैसला ले लिया है तो कृपया केमिकल्स से दूर रहें।
अगर संभव हो तो अपना पेशi बदल लें या फिर गर्भावस्था के समय से पहले और बाद के लिए छुट्टी ले लें।
इससे आपके फर्टिलिटी तथा बच्चा दोनों ही सुरक्षित रहेंगे।

*तनाव दूर करें (avoiding stress)*
आजकल ज़्यादातर लोग तनाव के शिकार हैं, और शायद यही वजह गर्भावस्था के स्तर के घटने की भी है।
आजकल सभी लोगों को सारा दिन काम का बोझ तथा तनाव झेलना पड़ता है।
दिमाग में पड़ने वाले प्रभाव के अलावा यह शरीर में उत्पादित होने वाले हॉर्मोन्स (hormones) में भी समस्या उत्पन्न करता है।
अतः तनाव से दूर रहें तथा गर्भधारण का फैसला लेने से पहले हमेशा खुश रहने का प्रयास करें।
आपको अपने बच्चे के बारे में सोचते हुए अपना तनाव कम करना चाहिए।
चिंता की वजह को दूर करने की कोशिश करें।

*सेक्स की प्रक्रिया को दोहराएं (having repeated sex)*
सम्भोग दुनिया में बच्चे को लाने का एक अनोखा और आनंददायक तरीका है।
प्रेगनेंट करने का तरीका में कुछ लोग काम के दबाव तथा अन्य जुड़े कारणों से पर्याप्त मात्रा में सेक्स की क्रिया को अंजाम नहीं दे पाते।
पर अगर आप बच्चा चाहती हैं और एक बार सेक्स से कोई फायदा ना हो तो उर्वर दिनों (fertilizing days) को ध्यान में रखते हुए सेक्स की क्रिया को बार बार दोहराना काफी महत्वपूर्ण साबित होगा। 
महिलाओं का मासिक धर्म (menstrual cycle) 28 से 30 दिनों का होता है, जिसमें से 14 वें दिन वे सबसे ज़्यादा उर्वर अवस्था में रहती हैं। 
आपको इस बात की भी जानकारी होनी चाहिए कि अंडाणु (ovum) का जीवन 24 से 36 घंटों तक का ही रहता है। 
अतः आपको सम्भोग की क्रिया के लिए इस दिन के आसपास के समय का ही चुनाव करना चाहिए। 
इस समय सेक्स में लिप्त होने से गर्भधारण की संभावनाएं काफी बढ़ जाती हैं। 
आपको सम्भोग के बाद दवाई की दुकानों पर उपलब्ध यूरिन टेस्ट किट (urine test kit) से गर्भावस्था की जांच करनी चाहिए।

*गर्भवती होने के उपाय–*
संतुलित खानपान (balanced diet)
जब आपको गर्भधारण की इच्छा हो, उस समय आपको अपने खानपान की तरफ भी काफी ध्यान देना चाहिए।
संतुलित आहार करें जिसमें पर्याप्त मात्रा में प्रोटीन, मिनरल और अन्य पोषक पदार्थ हों (protein, minerals and other nutrients), जिससे कि गर्भधारण की प्रक्रिया में तेज़ी आ जाए। 
हमेशा पोषक भोजन करने की कोशिश करें, जिससे बिना किसी समस्या के आसानी से बच्चे को जन्म दिया जा सके।
आप अपने खानपान में अन्य पूरक आहार (supplements) तथा माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स (micronutrients) भी शामिल कर सकती है|

Lack Of Libido In Females - 4 Treatment Methods

Lack Of Libido In Females - 4 Treatment Methods

According to contemporary medical studies, loss of sexual desire is more common in women than in men. As many as 3 in 10 women have reduced or limited sexual interest in any kind of sexual activity. While the medical term for this problem is Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), it is generally understood as a loss of libido.
There are multiple factors that contribute to this problem including psychiatric or physical disorders, relationship issues, hormonal disorders etc. Let us look at the causes of this disorder at length:
1. Medical Disorders:

a) There are conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids and thyroid disorders that may have a negative impact on the sexual drive of a woman.
b) Certain medicines such as antidepressants, oral contraceptives, and medicines that lower blood pressure may also negatively impact the sexual drive in women.
2. Hormonal Disorders:
a) Dryness of the vagina and pain during sexual intercourse may affect sexual drive both mentally and physically.
b) After menopause, drop in the count of testosterone hormone also affects sexual drive which can result in loss of libido.
c) With advancing age, the level of androgens decrease, and hence results in a lack of sexual desire.
3. Lifestyle Disorders:
a) In some of the cases, lack of emotional support in a relationship plays a significant role in the loss of libido. Post baby 'coolness' may also act as a driving force for loss in libido.
b) In today's era, changing lifestyle is drastically affecting our lives. Following an unhealthy lifestyle may result in increased weight that may affect self-image, and indirectly may also affect the sexual desire.
c) Stress and job, family pressure and exhaustion may also influence sexual desire of a woman.
4. Psychological factors:
a) Increasing cases of depression, anxiety, frustration, stress is also an important cause of loss of libido in the contemporary society.
b) After childbirth, new moms tend to suffer from lack of sleep, insufficient lubrication of the vagina and exhaustion, which may affect her sexual desire.
The first and foremost step towards dealing with it is to make your partner understand your problem. Then, it is important to consult a doctor to find out the underlying cause, thereafter, treatment of the cause can normalize the condition. Since there are multiple causes of the problem, there are different ways by which the loss of libido can be easily managed and treated. Some of them are discussed below:
1. Treatment of Hormonal Disorders: The doctors will suitably treat problems like thyroids or recommend surgical treatment for fibroids to manage HSSD.
2. Change in Medications: Since some of the medications are responsible for the lack of libido, the doctors will replace the medications to reverse this lack.
3. Addressing the psychological factors: Your doctor will either arrange for suitable psychiatric sessions or ask your partner to coordinate mutually.
4. Sex Therapy/Relationship Counseling or Testosterone Therapy: While sex therapy or relationship counseling brings back the interest by effectively counseling the individual, Testosterone therapy involves off-label usage of testosterone hormone since it is not recommended by FDA.
Proper treatment and consulting a medical expert can reverse this disorder efficiently. So, talk about the problem more openly to seek proper guidance and cure. You can also submit your queries or seek for our advice in detail by writing to us.

Female Infertility and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

Female Infertility and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

The World Health Organization (WHO) calls infertility “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.”
Infertility can occur in both women and men. Primary infertility is infertility in a couple who have never had a child, while secondary infertility is failure to conceive following a previous pregnancy. A woman who doesn’t conceive and/or is unable to carry a full-term pregnancy is labeled as infertile.

Causes of infertility in women

Infertility in women is caused by many factors like infections and ageing amongst others like the following:

  1. High FSH - Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland in the body. It stimulates follicle growth in the ovary and causes the eggs to mature for fertilization. FSH levels increase with age and high FSH levels in blood can mean that the ovaries are not functioning too well and hence it can be a likely reason for infertility.
  2. Blocked fallopian tubes - Blocked fallopian tubes or ‘fallopian tube obstruction’ is the biggest reason for infertility in women. We all know that fertilization happens inside the fallopian tubes, so an obstruction here means an absence of fertilization and pregnancy.
  3. Endometriosis - Women with endometriosis experience a drop in fertility by almost 12-35%. It is a condition where the lining of the uterus starts growing, not in the uterus, but elsewhere in the abdomen i.e. ovaries, fallopian tube and the pelvic area.
  4. Fibroids- These are non-cancerous tumours inside or around the uterus.
  5. Age- The biggest reason for infertility in women is their age. If a woman’s age is 35 plus, her ovaries do not function properly and release less eggs, which are not very healthy.
  6. Hormonal imbalance - These cause ovulatory malfunctions and poor egg development.
  7. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) - PCOS is a type of hormonal imbalance, which leads to production of excessive male hormones in a woman’s body, thereby causing infertility.

Can Ayurveda boost fertility in women?

According to Ayurveda, infertility arises when ‘shukra dhatu’, which produces eggs in women and sperms in men, is weak due to lack of proper nutrition. This could be due to poor digestion or an absence of a balanced diet or due to the presence of ‘ama’ or toxins in the body.

According to Ayurveda, sexual indulgence and promiscuity can also cause infertility due to the decrease in ‘shukra dhatu’.

Ayurvedic fertility enhancers for women

  1. Ashoka – It stimulates the endometrium found in the uterus and ovaries and aids in ovulation.
  2. Lodhra – It cures all female disorders that stop conception and regulates levels of reproductive hormones like FSH and LH, which are essential for conception.
  3. Shatavari – It nourishes the ovum or egg and enhances fertility as it contains estrogen-like compounds.
  4. Gokshura – This herb is helpful for both men and women. It works as a fertility tonic in women by stimulating the ovaries and thus cures PCOS, a leading cause of female infertility.

Ayurveda also recommends a diet rich in food items like ghee, milk, almonds, walnuts, sesame and pumpkin seeds to improve overall health and thus enhance levels of ‘shukra dhatu’ in the body. Since ‘vata’ dosha is closely associated with the reproductive system in women, Ayurveda also assigns a lot of value to its regulation for proper ovulation and stress control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Hii condom ke alava sab se best option hy IUD- intrauterine device like copper T. Look the probabilities of getting pregnant while on period are low, but the possibilities are there. As sperm can live inside 2,3 upto 5 days. Chances are rare. But still play safe thanks.

But while everything changes from taste to texture to color, what doesn’t drastically change is the staple such as rice or wheat. Our meals are incomplete without the consumption of either rice or chappatis. But here is the concern, more so for diabetics.

Rice and wheat flour are rich in carbohydrates, especially white rice and fine wheat flour. They break down quickly into glucose and make sugar level of the body to rise sharply. Because of this reason, they are ranked high on the Glycemic Index (GI), an index which ranks food items on the basis of their pace of breaking down into glucose. At a time when the incidence of diabetes is increasing alarmingly in India, with the country already having close to 70 million diabetics, it is important to choose food items cautiously.

The choice of Atta/rice is an important one since, being a staple, we consume them more often than other foods. A staple which can help us in releasing its sugar slowly in the system is thus highly desirable. Aashirvaad Sugar Release Control Atta is one of the many products available in the market which are low on GI and beneficial for those who want to manage their sugar levels.

Wondering why Low GI Atta is the right choice? Let us have a look at some of the benefits:

  1. Because the Atta is low on GI, it breaks down into sugar slowly in the body, thus helping in managing sugar levels and in maintaining a fit and active lifestyle. Aashirvaad Sugar Release Control Atta has a GI value of less than 55.
  2. Aashirvaad Sugar Release Control Atta is a blend of whole wheat flour, pulse and legume flours forming a unique “Natural Grain Mix”. Ingredients such as oats and methi ensure that the atta is high in protein and fibre.
  3. Atta does not contain any artificial ingredients.
  4. No difference in the taste. Chapattis, puris or paranthas made of Aashirvaad Sugar Release Control Atta taste as good as any other normal atta.

Choosing a low GI product is not only helpful for any diabetic, but also beneficial for the entire family. Mixing different grains in normal Atta is a laborious task and the resulting atta can be hard in bite and bitter in taste and thus may not be liked by all members of the family. So pick up an easily available low GI product which helps in managing diabetes.

lybrate-user you have to stay stress free in order to get pregnant, and if you do sexual intercourse from the 10th to 20 th day of your periods, chances of becoming pregnant are more, if both you and your partner is fertile and healthy.

IVF - 5 Tips for Male Partner

Preparing for an IVF cycle physically as well as emotionally is as important for men as it is for women. Additionally, if it's the first time you are opting for an IVF then it will help a lot if you prepare for it in advance. There are many issues to consider like your hormonal balance, sperm count, your general health, physical and emotional issues experienced by you and your partner during the process etc. Read on to find some effective tips that will ensure that you can smoothly complete the procedure and support your partner in doing so.

1. Gather information about the process

If you and your partner are opting for IVF for the first time then it will be beneficial for you both to know about the process first. It always helps if you are familiar with the uncertainties involved and prepare yourself to face any complexities arising during the cycle.

2. Seek emotional support from family and friends or join a support group

You should build a small supportive social circle of family and friends for yourself and your partner to deal with the stress and emotional changes experienced during the process. Alternatively, joining an online infertility support group also proves to be effective.

3. Opt for fertility cleansing

Fertility cleansing for men is as important as it for women as it ensures a healthy hormonal balance. The simplest steps would be to abstain from using plastic containers for eating and drinking, consuming organic food and fertility boosting foods as well as not having soy-based food products or alcohol.

4. Provide proper nourishment to your body

For this ask your doctor to suggest a diet which will boost male fertility and ensure better sperm health. Moreover, you can have multivitamin supplements to get essential minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Also, keep yourself hydrated by consuming at least 8 glasses of clean water every day.

5. Look after yourself and your partner

Ensure that you and your partner remain fit and healthy during the cycle by consuming a healthy diet. To keep stress at bay try exercising for 30 minutes daily or opt for fertility yoga or regular meditation. You may also think about seeking the help of a counsellor to strategically deal with the process. According to your preferences decide whether you want to have the counselling session with or without your partner.

We provide testing for fertility by all modalities ranging from reproductive hormones to diagnostic ultrasound to ascertain the cause. It is advisable that we make you undergo these tests before your final treatment/ plan of management is started.

  • Transvaginal ultrasound- A complete ultrasound of the uterus an adenexa is done to diagnose any anatomical disorder.
  • Specific tests – In cases of recurrent implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss or if required other tests are also advised.
  • Diagnostic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy – For many, this test is an important part of a fertility evaluation .Laparoscopy takes place under general anaesthesia with small incisions made at or just below the navel and the pubic hairline. A laparoscope (a small-diameter telescope) is passed through the incision, which enables one to view the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and pelvic cavity for abnormalities. We can check that the tubes are open (tubal patency) by injecting dye through the uterus and observing it spill or not through the ends of the fallopian tubes.

Hysteroscopy uses another small-diameter telescope called a hysteroscope. This enables to assess the uterine cavity for abnormalities such as polyps, adhesions or fibroids.

What is Premature Ejaculation?

What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature (early) ejaculation—also referred to as rapid ejaculation; also called as early discharge. Premature Ejaculation Treatment in Delhi (PE) is the most common type of sexual dysfunction in men younger than 40 years and seen across all age groups. In elderly men (60 years) erectile dysfunction is more common. A study conducted by the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that this condition is almost equally prevalent in sexually active men of all age groups. If a man experiences uncontrollable ejaculation (discharge of semen from your penis) either before or shortly after sexual penetration (usually within 1-2 minutes of penetration), he may be suffering from PE. The Mayo clinic at the United States defines PE as a condition in which a man “always or nearly always ejaculates within one minute of penetration."

5 Nutritional Factors Of Almonds & Walnuts

5 Nutritional Factors Of Almonds & Walnuts

Whenever you peruse through snack options in a store, looking for a fulfilling yet healthy option often turns out to be really challenging. This is where you might consider nuts, such as almonds or walnuts. They are healthy snacking options with rich reserves of protein, fibre, and energy.
However, even in the choice between almonds and walnuts, there are certain things which need to be kept in mind.

  • Energy content: Almonds contain 14 grams worth of fat, and 164 calories whereas walnuts contain approximately 18 grams of fat but give 185 calories. Thus, we find that walnuts contain a slightly higher amount of fat than almonds, but provide more energy in the form of calories.
  • Protein content: Almonds and walnuts are both protein powerhouses - containing 13% and 9% of protein content respectively. Thus, both these nuts are great sources of protein.
  • Mineral content: Both almonds and walnuts are rich in various kinds of minerals. When it comes to Iron, which is essential for muscle health and blood formation, both nuts contain very similar amounts (approx 5%). Almonds pack 19% magnesium - essential for strong bones, compared to the 11% in walnuts. Walnuts, however, have very high amounts of copper (50%) and manganese (54%) which prove to be useful in reducing symptoms of PMS as compared to almonds.
  • Fibre content: Fiber,which plays a vital role in completing the process of digestion, is another component that these nuts pack healthy amounts of. Almonds contain 16% fiber whereas walnuts have 8%.
  • Vitamin content: While walnuts contain 12% Vitamin B6, compared to the 3% in almonds, the real point of difference between these two highly healthy nuts is in their content of Vitamin E - essential for healthy skin and eyes. Almonds contain almost 48% of it, whereas walnuts contain only about 2% of the same.

Thus, we get a fair idea about the high nutritional content for both these nuts. They are both essential, especially if they can be incorporated into our diets in the correct proportions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.
