Dear doctor, if one's weight is reduced due to chronic anxiety, will his bad cholesterol LDL be reduced in blood?
BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There are certain misconception about cholesterol itself. Cholesterol is actually produced by liver and cholesterol is needed for body's day to day functioning. Therefore, do not worry too much about cholesterol. To answer your question, Chronic anxiety can reduce your weight due to metabolic change. Cholesterol, whether bad or good, factor depends on your food intake and dietary pattern. Fatty fool do increase cholesterol level even when you are anxious. But all these are usually momentary. The peripheral answer to your question is NO. There are many other factors needs to be considered. Take care.

Hello mam I am in depression. Because of no talk with myelder sister I am totally dependent on my sister I unable to do daily work without her advice I argue her to stay with me I have always felling of separation Sometimes I am clinging. I can't take decisions with out her. I HV fear of separation. She says me that brother I will always there but I am forced her to talk in every hour.
This level of dependence is too much and you must learn to detach from her to this extent. You could work with a counselor to become independent and self dependent. You can also do that by assessing your capabilities in a more realistic manner and discover your ability to make and take decisions. In time, with some practice, you will be able to get it. YOu can also see what skills yoru sister uses to help you and you can do the same. It has been a long time and I am sure if you truly introspect you will be able to know the ways of your sister.

My cousin has recently developed a habit of drinking wine. He often comes drunk at home. and his mom is very worried. What should be the solution sir?
Ideally, he must want to stop himself. If not he has not reached what is called, 'Hitting Rock Bottom'. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

My wife aged 60 Yrs suffers from mental disorder of emotional outbursts. It seems she is also a patient of high BP, but no medicines are used for it so far. So far controlled only through diet control. Can U please suggest suitably?
M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Dear lybrate user, since your wife is 60 years old, it is advisable to take her to a doctor and get all routine physical tests done. You need to know if all her body functions like thyroid, hormone levels etc are normal or not. Treating her bp with only diet control may also be harmful. Please take doctor's advise. If all her organs are functioning normally, then you may consult a counsellor. Because, then the emotional outbursts may be because of suppressed feelings like anger, sadness, shame, guilt etc. The counselling sessions will help her to relieve her of her stress and help her in modifying her reactions to different situations. This will help her in expressing her feelings in socially acceptable way.

Why I feel like I want to be lonely and don't want to go out of my room even though I have nothing in my room to spend the whole day and night?
Being alone sometimes is a good thing but if you want to be alone all the time it is a sign of poor social development: no man is an island, and no man can live alone. We are all social animals, gregarious by nature, and we need each other. Relationships are the essence of man: we were conceived because of a relationship, we grew up in our mother?s womb through a parasitic relationship, we desire the relationship of a member of the opposite sex and finally we procreate from that relationship. The final test of a personality is in the social context; a better test of that person is when he with a member of the opposite sex; and the greatest test of your personality is when we bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. Wow, that is an exhaustive list of why you need to be in relations with others and to enjoy it. Introverts are afraid of people. If you are avoiding other people, it may have something to do with the fear of people. All in all this is not a healthy trend and you must work to get out of this tendency and love and live with others forever. If you want to then meet with a counselor, and/or attend programs that expose you to other people often and in very intimate circumstances to see what happens to you and then work on the issues that disturb you enough to want to avoid them.
Asked for female, 28 years old from Hyderabad
Am 29 yrs. I have a depression problem since 6 months I hav takn tabs of restyle but now am not using those medicine am not getting sleep for three two four days what shud I do please help me.
Asked for Female, 26 years old from Thane
I am 25 year old. And from few days I do not get sleep properly due to my work load. So what can I do for it. I get angry on anyone very fast. Please suggest me for same.
You have yourself mentioned your problem. If you are stressed because of your anger, you could be disturbed with poor sleep. If the workload is causing yo stress do speak to your boss or supervisor and find a way out of that dilemma. Perhaps you could also learn to delegate work to other people and get work done more efficiently. For any of these problems I suggest you meet a counselor and talk about your feelings. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day even on weekends; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

I am 30 year old suffering from general anxiety disorder and IBS. Doctor give me daxid 50 mg .in first week to much improvement. Then I take start alcohol 6 peg daily after several days the symptoms come back why. Alcohol cause anxiety.
MD - Psychiatry
IBS & Generalized Anxiety Disorder are treatable conditions, but the duration of treatment is usually long. You need to continue medicines regularly as advised & be under regular supervision of your doctor who will keep evaluating you from time to time & adjust your medications accordingly. As your symptoms are persisting, you better get yourself re evaluated by your doctor, who will either adjust the dose of your current medications, or switch to another medicine or along with advice you counseling sessions. Abstain from drinking alcohol, as it will aggravate your symptoms further. Talk to your doctor about your alcohol problem also, & get treated for it Wish you speedy recovery.

Do deep breathing excersise as it will b helpful for both your lungs and brain. Be positive in life. Choose healthy food.

Dear lybrate-user, 16 is a very beautiful age when you grow up, out of a "child" phase into a "young man" phase. There are hormone changes that confuse and can lead to depression if not understood. Follow a healthy diet and get a lot of physical exercise. Sweating helps reduce the burden of growing up hormone imbalances and you will start to fell better in a day or two. Regards.
Asked for male, 63 years old from Chandigarh
I am a 61 years old male. Since the last 7-8 months I am passing through lot of stress due to disharmony with my brothers and mother as well as due to stress in the professional life. I feel very secluded. My mother who is 81 years old and paralytic and staying with us plays dirty roles and makes everbody quarrel in the family and tells al lies. Due to her presence there is an unexplained stress. We cannot also move out of our house because of her sickness. One of daughter has had a seperation from her husband and divorce with consent has been filed without any financial claim from either side. My younger daughter was recently married in a very high profile family. There was lot of stress because of arrangements of her wedding. However, the wedding took place and everything went of very well. In fact it turned out to be dream wedding. Despite that I feel that the pre-wedding stress is still causing depression. Both daughters are very well settled professionally and satisfied also despite elder daughter being seperated. We are four brothers and and all of us have misunderstanding amongst ourselves mainly because of miscommunications and lies by our mother thus creating misunderstanding in the family. I had suffered depression due to these family problems and disharmony in the family about 35 years back also when I was young. I had undergone psycatric treatment for about 6 months. I was on a drug called depsonil from 3 tabs a day which went upto 6 tablets a day and was slowly withdrawn. I feel very low and dont feel like meeting anyone or talking to anyone. I suffer from a cardiac condition hocm for which I am taking 1 tab atenolol -50 and 1 tab amlopress 2.5 od. Please suggest a remedy.
Start tab sertraline 50mg once a day. Tab etizest 0.5 mg twice a day. Its safe for your heart. Report after 7 days.
Asked for male, 1 year old from Kolkata
I love my wife and care for her. We have a 17 month old son who is well taken care of by her. We live in a joint family. My wife is given to occasional anger episodes where she uses abusive language, blackmail and threats of hurting herself. This is usually after she has had a verbal argument with any woman of the family. I know she loves me and takes care of me a lot but during her anger episodes she thinks I don't love her or don't take her side in an argument with someone else. During those episodes of anger she will not listen to anyone and the more I talk to her the situation gets worse. She recently (1 month ago) had her gallbladder removed because of gallstone pain. Sometimes she does not even remember the things she said during her anger episodes. She sometimes thinks no one loves our child or he is subjected to partiality. Our baby is still on breastfeed. What should I do?
Dear lybrate-user, It is good that you are seeking help in this situation to help your wife. We shall try to address the issue from a practical problem solving method. There are several points to be observed. 1. That you both love each other. 2. There are tensions within the family. 3. Wife is struggling emotionally during those episodes and wants you to understand her problems and support her. 4. Perhaps it has become a pattern after several such episodes that according to her view, you remain a passive observant and in a way she is asking you to help her out of the situation and she is helpless. The longer the situation drags the more bitter the relationships are going to be. There is also a risk of self harm as she has threatened to hurt herself. It is best if you both seek professional counselling to address the issue together. In the meantime please see if you can do the following. 1. Take your family out (wife and children) on a weekly basis so you'll spend some private time. Make this a sincere commitment. 2. It is futile to talk about these issues when the episodes happen. Instead find a time when you both are relaxed and have uninterrupted time for yourselves and allow her to talk about her problems. If she can't remember, as you said - try and gently remind her in a non-accusatory manner and allow her to reflect on what troubles her. Both of you may have to set some terms of communication that you both will listen well during this conversation, not to use abusive language, not to flare up and not walk away from discussion so that result of the discussion is meaningful. 3. While you may not know the details of the conflicts and don't wish to take sides within family, you should atleast ensure that you empathize with your wife, show that you care for her in words and actions. 4. Also consider an opportunity for her to have time away from home either in form of work, hobby or something she wishes to do to help energize herself. Hope you find this helpful.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help by in-person or audio/video please give us feedback after trying.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.
