Hypoglycemia is a condition that is associated with a lower amount of glucose in the body. Since glucose is the main source of energy in the body, it creates quite a few complications in the body. In a majority of the cases, this condition is associated with diabetes. Hypoglycemia, like fever, is not a disease but a disease indicator. A quick fix to keep hypoglycemia under check is to ensure that a patient intakes high-sugar food. A long-term fix involves a doctor treating a patient for the root cause.
What are the common symptoms?
The body needs a constant supply of glucose to carry out the daily function. In a case of short supply, it presents with the following symptoms:
As the condition worsens, the symptoms can aggravate to the following conditions:
- Frequent seizures b. Inability to complete daily work due to confusion
- Sudden loss of consciousness
- Problems related to vision such as blurred vision
People with an acute hypoglycemia can get a feeling of intoxication at times. Words get slurred while they talk.
What are the causes?
Glucose is one of the many sugar molecules that the body produces when it digests food. Glucose is one such sugar component and is the driver of energy. There are 2 reasons of diabetes. If the pancreas can’t produce enough insulin or the body is incapable of responding to the insulin. This results in a logjam of glucose in the body. To address the problem, intake of insulin is required. Too much of insulin intake can result in hypoglycemia. The latter can also befall if an adequate amount of food is not consumed while going through a medicine course of diabetes. Even too much of working out while consuming diabetic medicine can also result in hypoglycemia.
Other probable causes:
- Alcohol consumption- A regular drinker who eats less runs a heavy risk of suffering from hypoglycemia. This blocks the liver and the latter can refrain from releasing glucose.
- Critical illness- Hypoglycemia may occur from certain critical illnesses such as liver illness, kidney disorder, frequent starvation etc.
- Overproduction of the insulin- A tumour of the pancreas known as the insulinoma causes the body over-produce insulin.
- Hormonal deficiencies- Disorders related to the pituitary gland and adrenal gland runs a serious risk of suffering of hypoglycemia due to hormonal deficiencies.
What are the complications?
Some of the common complications of this conditions include loss of consciousness, seizures and at times even death. Frequent episodes of hypoglycemia can make a person go numb and speechless.
A doctor typically asks a patient to go for a fast of 12 hours in a hospital setting and then test the glucose level in the blood. It ensures that the body exhibits the correct symptoms of hypoglycemia. The doctor analyses the blood sample report and decides whether a person has this condition. The last and the final confirmation comes when the symptoms of hypoglycemia go away as soon as the blood sugar levels are increased.
In the case of a diabetic patient, it is necessary to ensure that a constant evaluation of the blood sugar level happens from time to time. Eating and medicine schedules need to be adhered to. Exercise too is important. All this needs to be done in consultation with the doctor.
I have a problem with scanty menstrual bleeding. Am having very les menstrual bleeding it is only for 2days. Bleeding occur after one day of intercourse please suggest me medicine.
At which week of pregnancy, iron & calcium tabs has to take. And till how many week folic acid has to continue?
My question is what food is good during pregnancies. Like in vegetables, fruits, non-veg and pulses in 2nd months pregnancies.
Glucose (blood sugar) levels
Both low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) are of concern for patients who take insulin. It is important, therefore, to carefully monitor blood glucose levels. In general, patients with type 1 diabetes need to take readings four or more times a day. Patients should aim for the following measurements:
Pre-meal glucose levels of 90 - 130 mg/dl
Bedtime levels of 110 - 150 mg/dl
Different goals may be required for specific individuals, including pregnant women, very old and very young people, and those with accompanying serious medical conditions.
Finger-prick test. A typical blood sugar test includes the following:
A drop of blood is obtained by pricking the finger.
The blood is then applied to a chemically treated strip.
Monitors read and provide results.
Home monitors are about 10 - 15% less accurate than laboratory monitors, and many do not meet the standards of the american diabetes association. Most doctors believe, however, that they are accurate enough to indicate when blood sugar is too low.
To monitor the amount of glucose within the blood a person with diabetes should test their blood regularly. The procedure is quite simple and can often be done at home.
Some simple procedures may improve accuracy:
Testing the meter once a month.
Recalibrating it whenever a new packet of strips is used.
Using fresh strips; outdated strips may not provide accurate results.
Keeping the meter clean.
Periodically comparing the meter results with the results from a laboratory.
Supplementary monitoring devices. Other devices are available for monitoring blood glucose. These devices are used in addition to traditional fingerstick test kits, and glucose meters but do not replace them:
Continuous glucose monitoring systems (cgms) use a needle-like sensor inserted under the skin of the abdomen to monitor glucose levels every 5 minutes. In 2007, the sts-7 system was approved. Using a disposable sensor, the sts-7 measures glucose levels for up to a week. An alarm will sound if glucose levels are too high or low. The older minimed system measures glucose over a 72-hour period and has wireless communication between the monitor and an insulin pump.
Glucowatch is a battery-powered wristwatch-like device that measures glucose by sending tiny electric currents through the skin, a technique called reverse iontophoresis. It is painless and has a warning device when detecting high glucose levels. It takes 2 hours to warm up, and the sensor pads need to be changed every day. Glucowatch measures glucose levels three times per hour for up to 12 hours. About a quarter of the time, the results differ significantly from actual fingerstick tests, however.
Hemoglobin a1c (also called hba1c, ha1c, or a1c) is measured periodically every 2 - 3 months, or at least twice a year, to determine the average blood-sugar level over the lifespan of the red blood cell. While fingerprick self-testing provides information on blood glucose for that day, the hba1c test shows how well blood sugar has been controlled over the period of several months. For most people with well-controlled diabetes, hba1c levels should be below 7%. Home tests are available for measuring a1c but they tend not to be as accurate as the laboratory tests ordered by doctors.
Urine tests are useful for detecting the presence of ketones. These tests should always be performed during illness or stressful situations, when diabetes is likely to go out of control. The patient should also undergo yearly urine tests for microalbuminuria (small amounts of protein in the urine), a risk factor for future kidney disease.

- Keep your house hold and sorroundings free of garbage and water collections
- Change water every 2 days in the offices/houses in wases and decorative items
- Cover your feet
- Wear full sleeves
- Presence of high grade fever with headache, eye pain, back pain with reddish colour of skin and tiredness can be clues to dengue.
- Take plenty of liquids and consult doctor for further testing to detect early.

Sex is an extremely personal and subjective matter. Different individuals relate to and indulge in sex differently. The idea of sex also varies from person to person and may not always fit the stereotypical penile-vaginal penetrative intercourse.
There is no way of determining exactly how much sex is good and how much of it is too much. Some people like to be sexually active with thorough regularity while others find comfort in abstinence. Age also plays an important role here with people between the ages of 18-29 indulging in higher levels of sexual activity than those who are middle-aged or elderly.
The different levels and frequencies of sexual activity have varying degrees of impacts on the overall mental, physical and sexual health of a person. There are numerous health benefits attached to having an active sex life, which manifests themselves in both the body and the mind.
The health benefits of having sex are -
As per studies conducted, it has been shown that having sex, at least, two times a week can boost overall physical and mental health. The many health benefits of being sexually active are as follows:
- It improves immunity and makes the body more resilient to diseases
- It improves bladder control in women and prevents urinary incontinence
- It prevents erectile dysfunction in men
- It improves blood circulation and lowers blood pressure
- It acts as a stress reliever
- It improves functioning of the heart and lowers the risk of heart disease
- It reduces sensitivity to pain
There are several other benefits of sex, which include the effective healing and nurturing of the body in a holistic manner.
Is there a limit to having sex?
A large number of people all around the world are concerned about their carnal compulsions and frequently approach sex therapists about what frequency of sex constitutes as a 'healthy' dose.
There really is no such thing as too much sex. But if overindulgence in sexual activities causes a disturbance in everyday activities such as work, classes, household responsibilities and other obligations, it becomes a problem. If such a situation arises, it might be signs of a sex addiction in which case it is important to consult a sexologist or sex therapist. Ideally, having sex two times a day is good for your body, mind and soul.
पर्यावरण में कवक की 50,000 से अधिक विभिन्न प्रजातियां हैं, लेकिन केवल 20 से 25 प्रजातियां मनुष्यों में संक्रमण का कारण बन सकती हैं। वास्तव में, कई कवक हैं जो आपकी त्वचा पर कई वर्षों तक बिना किसी समस्या का कारण बने रह सकते हैं। हालांकि, कभी-कभी कुछ कारक कवक को अधिक मात्रा में बढ़ा सकते हैं या बदल सकते हैं, और इससे फंगल संक्रमण हो सकता है।
एक फंगल संक्रमण को शरीर के ऊतकों पर कवक के एक या अधिक प्रजातियों के आक्रमण के रूप में वर्णित किया जा सकता है। फंगल संक्रमण आमतौर पर कवक के प्रकार, प्रभावित शरीर का हिस्सा और संक्रमण की गंभीरता द्वारा वर्गीकृत किया जाता है। फंगल संक्रमण कई प्रकार के होते हैं। सबसे आम प्रकार के फंगल संक्रमणों में टीनेया वेर्सिकलर, दाद, जॉक इच्च, बारबर्स इच्च, फंगल नेल, एथलीट फुट, इंटरट्रिगो, और योनि खमीर संक्रमण आदि शामिल हैं।
ये संक्रमण आपकी त्वचा की सतह पर, त्वचा गुना के भीतर या किसी भी अन्य क्षेत्र में हो सकती हैं जो गर्म और नम है। छीलने वाली त्वचा, फटा त्वचा, लालिमा, फफोले, जलन, खुजली कवक संक्रमण के सबसे आम लक्षण हैं। फंगल संक्रमण की गंभीरता भिन्न लोगों के लिए भिन्न हो सकती है। ये संक्रमण अत्यधिक संक्रामक होते हैं, और यदि अनियंत्रित और अनुपचारित छोड़ दिए जाएं, तो यह कवक संक्रमण शरीर के अन्य भागों में फैल सकते है। इसलिए, जितना जल्दी हो सके फंगल संक्रमण को नियंत्रित करना आवश्यक है।
फंगल संक्रमणों के लिए उपाय
अधिकांश कवक संक्रमणों को नियंत्रित किया जा सकता है और आसानी से इलाज किया जा सकता है। एंटिफंगल दवाओं के कई प्रकार हैं। आपका डॉक्टर आपको कुछ दवाइयां लेने और उपचार प्रक्रिया को गति देने के लिए एंटिफंगल साबुन, पाउडर, क्रीम या मलहम लगाने के लिए कह सकता है। अधिकांश दवाएं कवक की कोशिका की दीवार को नुकसान पहुंचाकर काम करती हैं, जो फंगल कोशिका को मारता है।
इन दवाओं का उपयोग त्वचा, खोपड़ी और नाखूनों के फंगल संक्रमण के इलाज के लिए किया जाता है। कुछ सामान्य सामयिक दवाओं में क्लॉटियमजोल, ईकोनाजोल, केटोनिकाज़ोल, माइकोनाजोल शामिल हैं। कभी-कभी एक एंटिफंगल क्रीम को अन्य क्रीम के साथ मिलाया जाता है, जब दो कार्यों की आवश्यकता होती है। जैसे कि, कुछ चकत्ते के इलाज के लिए, एक एंटिफंगल क्रीम अक्सर एक हल्के स्टेरॉयड क्रीम के साथ जोड़ती है, जैसे हाइड्रोकार्टेसोन। एंटिफंगल क्रीम संक्रमण को साफ करता है, और हल्के स्टेरॉयड क्रीम संक्रमण की वजह से सूजन को कम कर देता है।
एक शैम्पू जिसमें किटोकोनैजोल होता है, कभी-कभी स्कैल्प के फंगल संक्रमण और कुछ त्वचा की स्थितियों का इलाज करने के लिए प्रयोग किया जाता है।
पेसॅरि ऐसी गोलियां हैं जिन्हें योनि में डालने के लिए डिज़ाइन किया गया है। कुछ एंटिफंगल दवाओं को योनि थ्रश के इलाज के लिए पेसॅरियों के रूप में उपयोग किया जाता है, विशेषकर क्लोटियमियाज़ोल, ईकोनाज़ोल, माइकोनाजोल और फेंटिकॉनज़ोल।
मौखिक दवाएं कई प्रकार के हो सकते हैं। माइकोनाजोल, एक मौखिक जेल और नास्टेटिन, एक तरल मुंह पर लागू होते हैं। उनका उपयोग मुंह और गले के छाले (खरा संक्रमण) के इलाज के लिए किया जाता है। कुछ गोलियां भी उपलब्ध हैं जैसे कि टेर्बिनाफ़िन, फ्लुकोनाजोल, इट्राकोनाजोल आदि। टेर्बिनाफ़िन का आमतौर पर नाखून संक्रमण का इलाज करने के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है, जबकि फ्लुकोनाजोल आमतौर पर योनि पिंड का इलाज करने के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है।
अगर आपके शरीर के भीतर एक गंभीर फंगल संक्रमण हो, तो इनका इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है। इन इंजेक्शन के माध्यम से दी जाने वाली दवा कवक के प्रकार पर निर्भर करती है। अम्फोटेरिसिन, एनिनडुलेफिंगिन, कैसफोफिन, और माईफॉन्गिन कुछ सामान्यतः इस्तेमाल की जाने वाली दवाइयां हैं।
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.
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.
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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
