Some times the periods may get delayed naturally. Sometimes the use of pills also may interfere with the natural rhythm .Still one should be careful about the overall health including the menstrual periods. Its better to get an annual checkup by a gynaecologist who can also suggest a healthy life style for protecting health from diseases.

diabetic double risk of parkinsonism

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
diabetic double risk  of parkinsonism
Diabetes more than doubles the risk of developing Parkinson's disease while metformin therapy protects against that risk, according to research published in the publication Parkinsonism and Related Disorders.

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the brain that leads to tremors and difficulty with walking, movement and coordination. It most often develops in people age 50 or older and is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly, according to the National Institutes of Health. There is no known cure.

The major 12-year study in Taiwan found that while diabetes increases the risk of Parkinson's 2.2 fold, including metformin in the therapy negates that risk.

“An exciting aspect of the finding is that metformin seems to be working to protect the brain against neurodegeneration which contributes to Parkinsonism. This means it may also be considered a relevant therapy for the prevention of dementia as well,” said Mark Wahlqvist, professor at the National Health Research Institutes in Taiwan and lead author of the study.

Metformin is the first-line medication for patients with type 2 diabetes. This affordable and commonly prescribed oral drug lowers blood glucose levels by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver and enhancing insulin action. It's a type of biguanide drug used since the 1950s with a relatively safe record.

Researchers also found that use of sulfonylurea drugs, a common treatment for diabetes, further increases the risk by about 57 percent.

Sylfonylureas are a category of oral medications that stimulate the beta cells of the pancreas to release more insulin, according to the American Diabetes Association. Sylfonylurea drugs have been in use since the 1950s and include glipizide, glyburide, glimepiride and chlorpropamide.

Researchers theorize that metformin may re-set the regulation of energy metabolism in the brain cells. They suspect that exercise and diet may have the same energy regulating effect.

The study does not examine the mechanism behind metformin's protective effect on the brain. Researchers say that additional research is needed in this area.

Past research has shown that metformin reduces cardiovascular mortality and several cancers, including those of the large bowel, liver and pancreas.

Hello, I am suffering from extreme depression from last one year. I failed in exams, as a result. I tried to overcome on my own but now it is becoming worse. I cant concentrate on studies, cant enjoy things, my brain always is in worry & always tensed, dont know when I smiled last tym, a temporary relief I get is only when I go out with friends but after reaching home again I forget to smile or if I go to gym. Every morning I cant wake up early. I always feel tired and my mind tensed. And what is even worse is my allergy. Every morning I get up with running nose and countless sneezes. Dust and particle allergy is to blame. Can I beat this stress with medicines, are medicines effective in depression, I wanna feel light and active and ofcourse happy like when I was in college?

The allergy is a sign of grief, and so is the depression. It is good that you have identified what activities help you and what do not. Now I recommend that you meet with a counselor soon and talk to the person about all these problems. You will be guided well, and you will also need to know about emotions and how to deal with them. It is good you like the company of your friends and can therefore keep in touch with them often and for long durations. In other words, do everything possible in your spare time to be with people. If you are staying with your family, then the other times can be spent with them until you have to sleep. Do not sleep beyond 6.30 am, every day. Get into a healthy routine of exercise, good diet, and proper sleep habits, soon. Exercise is really good for a lot of reasons but primarily because the aerobic exercise stimulates the brain to product natural antidepressants. The allergy too will disappear over time. There is some sadness from your past that is the culprit. Can you identify it? if not, the counselor will help you. The sadness will naturally precipitate a lot of tears. That too you must do with someone, never alone. Be committed to the therapy. If the counselor thinks that you need medical intervention, that person will surely send you to a doctor for psychiatric consultation.

I am 20 years old and a student in kota, rajasthan (india). I had left my gf for studies without telling her 2 years ago. Now that we are together she confessed that she had a new bf and she did stuffs that I didn't want to know. Now that I know all these, I feel like I committed a huge mistake when I had left her. Is there any way I can forget whatever she said she did? Please help me. I can't live with this.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

You left your girlfriend to pursue your studies without telling her two years ago. Inspite of that, she has agreed to continue a relationship with you and has been honest enough to tell you about her other relationships. Now you are upset about something that happened when you weren't together, after you ended the relationship for your own reasons without taking her feelings into account. It is unfair for you to hold this against her because you ended the relationship. She has been honest enough to tell you everything, so you need to get past this. Rather than getting upset about this, work on your relationship with her and put more effort into being understanding. As long as it is in the past, accept that it has happened and move on. If you keep holding on to this, it will ruin your relationship.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are just 18. Your brain is growing faster than ever and impulsivity is normal during this period. You can overcome this adolescent related impulsivity, anger and aggression through physical exercises and games upto an extent. There is no harm and therefore don't worry about it. Take care.

Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

Dear user. I can understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and Your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Dear, watching porn videos occassionally is not a crime or you don't have to worry about that. If you watch many porn videos in a same day, then it can be called addiction. Are you addicted in that sense? also understand, this addiction is mind based. So instead of calling it an addiction, we call it impulse reaction. Impulse reaction is a mental disorder and not a mental disease. Psychotherapy should clear your impulse reaction and please stop worrying about it. Take care,

Dear , anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible. You have to change your mindset. Post a direct question to me

All problems are actually solvable although we may not have as yet found the solution. You are both in it together and life will continue to throw challenges at you, again and again. Each time you overcome a particular situation you will indeed feel proud. In order to face a problem of any kind, unity is essential and if you two bicker with each other you will not be able to tackle this financial situation at all. Your strength lies in your togetherness. So please do meet with a marriage counselor and get help about being together and facing life. You will need a third person's involvement. Love is the key to any relationship. Your love looks like it has been shattered by monetary considerations. You cannot give into this in place of love. Please renew your love for each other. I am also certain that faith and spirituality is not an integral part of your life: therefore the struggle. In the bargain it is a good opportunity to renew your faith in the one above. If you are a christian, I am really shocked by your desperation. I have always said this in some sermons I have given: that the person who reads the bible daily and prays daily will never contemplate suicide. This is an absolute truth: the bible is life-giving. Go meet a pastor too and build your faith with renewed vigor: god is always waiting to help you, if you have faith and are obedient to him.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.
