But my muscle is not gaining,...
Dear lybrate-user, I am a General Physician and I workout regularly! I would like to show you light on few aspects. 1. Most of the times what you read from Google search is written by some steroid abused illiterate gym trainers. So it's risky that you follow those advice. 2. Now coming to your concern, Growth of muscle depends on several phenomenon other than having whey protein, some duplicate supplement. You do need other factors running inside your body to get those muscles. 3. Your workout pattern depends a lot on yiur growth of muscle. You need to know what is the best suitable workout according to your BMI & Body type 4. Low testosterone: Having low testosterone has few physiological signs and symptoms. There is a test to confirm that. However your delayed muscle growth does not indicate that you have to have low testosterone. 5. There is no written/researched evidence of the fact that "SHILAJIT OR ASHWAGANDHA increases your testosterone level" There are few proven drugs which with proper guidelines have to administered to increase the testosterone level! Take care mate!

Hello, Dextrose loaded sugar is not advisable. Try shakes, smoothies, custards, fruit juices, milk based desserts are better choices. Sugar loaded or sugar itself is not not a good idea, to consume even on weight gain.

Morning Sickness - Why Dextrose Therapy Should Not be Used?

Morning Sickness - Why Dextrose Therapy Should Not be Used?

Although, morning sickness is a common phenomenon in pregnant women, severe symptoms along with loss of weight and electrolyte disturbance may indicate hyperemesis gravidarum. This condition cannot be prevented from occurring. However, you can use several steps to manage the condition, but if you are thinking of dextrose for treating hyperemesis gravidarum, you should avoid using the remedy.

Causes behind it

Hyperemesis gravidarum commonly occurs when there is a rise in your hormone levels during pregnancy. The affected hormone is hCG or human chorionic gonadotropin. It is produced during pregnancy from the placenta and in early pregnancy stages, it is produced at a rapid rate. This hormone triggers severe nausea.

The symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum are as follows:

  1. Intense nausea and vomiting
  2. Aversion towards food
  3. Loss of appetite and weight loss
  4. A reduced urge for urination
  5. Possible dehydration
  6. Headaches and confusion
  7. Extreme tiredness or fatigue that can cause fainting
  8. Jaundice
  9. Increased heart rate
  10. Losing skin elasticity

Treatment
There are different modes of treatment for hyperemesis gravidarum. Dextrose is one of the methods which should be abstained from unless the need is urgent.

  1. Intravenous fluids or IV is used for restoring the hydration of vitamins, nutrients, and electrolytes.
  2. Tube feeding is another treatment method.
  3. Nasogastric treatment incorporates nutrient restoration through a tube, which goes into the stomach via your nose.
  4. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is also applied where a tube passing through the abdomen goes into the stomach.
  5. Several medications are used for treatment.

Dextrose and Hyperemesis gravidarum

Dextrose is a simple sugar made from corn. Chemically, it is identical to glucose or blood sugar. It is used for several medical purposes. It is dissolved in many solutions which are given intravenously, combined with other medicines. Solutions which contain dextrose should not be given to patients suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. This is because dextrose increases your body’s need for thiamine. Hence, the chances of precipitating Wernicke encephalopathy gets higher in women who already suffer from thiamine deficiency.

However, dextrose infusion can be used when the patient is very hypoglycemic and oral toleration becomes difficult. In such cases, the dextrose needs to be supplemented with thiamine. IV thiamine may be used before the dextrose infusion. Dextrose is a carbohydrate and solutions which contain dextrose  provide calories. They are often given in combination with fat and amino acids.

Peritoneal Dialysis - Know The Step By Step Procedure!

No Blood, No needle, No visit to hospital, you can do yourself at home with water. A thin layer of transparent screen like structure hangs in front of the abdominal muscles known as peritoneum. This peritoneum protects the abdominal structures and the muscle. This can also be used for performing dialysis which is carried out when the functioning of kidney gets affected. In peritoneal dialysis a thin and soft catheter is placed in the person’s belly one week before performing the procedure.

The catheter has numerous holes in order to facilitate the transformation of fluids. Dialysis solution is prepared in a bag and the tubing is connected to the catheter placed in the abdomen thereby, the fluids absorb the waste materials from the body. The fluid is allowed to stay in your body for a particular period of time which is commonly referred as dwell time and later the fluid is drained out.

There are two types of peritoneal dialysis, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis and automated peritoneal dialysis. This is the simple form of dialysis which anybody can perform after a short training period and this can be done anywhere in clean private place like hotels, home and even in office.


Procedure followed during Peritoneal Dialysis
All you need to perform a peritoneal dialysis is catheter and transfer set, cycler, dialysis solution and safety precautions materials to stay away from getting infections.
Step 1 - Perform a sterile aseptic technique. Wear a glove and surgical mask before connecting the catheters and transfer set. Clamp the tubing and remove the catheter once the dialysis solution enters your abdomen

Step 3 - Drain the fluid from the abdominal cavity into the drain bag. You may feel a mild tugging sensation when adequate amount of fluid is drained.
Step 4 - After drain close or clamp the transfer set and later flush a fresh solution directly to drain bag so as to remove the air from the tubing.
Step 5 - Close your drain bag and open your transfer set and refill your belly with fresh solution.

Make sure you perform without giving way for infection and excess fluid and dextrose absorption. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How Safe is it to Have Artificial Sweeteners During Pregnancy?

How Safe is it to Have Artificial Sweeteners During Pregnancy?

How safe is it to have artificial sweeteners during pregnancy?

Ingredients that you generally come across in candies, soft drinks, desserts and so on are known as artificial sweeteners. Many women during their pregnancy include these ingredients (in the form of foods and drinks that have been artificially sweetened) in their diet so as to cut down the amount of sugar in their diet.

But before you go about including them in your diet during pregnancy, there are certain things that you need to be aware of. Artificial sweeteners are generally of two types - nutritive sweeteners and nonnutritive sweeteners, the former contains calories while the latter doesn't.

Which sweeteners are safe to have?

Nutritive sweeteners, when consumed in moderation, can be looked upon as safe to have when you're pregnant, as long as they don't add to your body weight. But if you suffer from carbohydrate intolerance like diabetes, insulin resistance or even gestational diabetes, you need to limit the consumption of nutritive sweeteners. This type of sweeteners includes the different forms of sugar sucrose, honey, corn sugar, maltose, fructose and dextrose.

On the other hand, non-nutritive sweeteners are found in small quantities in foods since their role there is to only add a certain sweetening effect to the food product. Experts are still carrying out research on the effects of this type of sweeteners on pregnant women and their babies during pregnancy. The category includes options like sucralose, aspartame, rebaudioside a or stevia and acesulfame potassium.


Which sweeteners are not safe to have during pregnancy?

Apart from certain sweeteners that you can have during this period, there are some that are a total no-go - these are saccharin and cyclamate. While insufficient data is available for the effect of cyclamate on pregnant women, several studies conducted in the past show the adverse effect of saccharin. Certain studies have revealed its effect on the bladder (it can lead to bladder cancer) as well as on fetal tissue and placenta. Contact with this form of sweeteners can cause the unborn or infants to develop muscle dysfunction and irritability

All About Platelet Rich Plasma

All About Platelet Rich Plasma

Blood plasma enriched with platelets is known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Being a rich source of similar platelets, PRP can perform healing of tissues and bone by using various cytokines and growth factors. Plasma therapy using platelets is a renowned procedure and is extensively used in other methods such as orthopaedics, dentistry and dermatology. Indications in dermatology that require PRP are wound healing, androgenetic alopecia,face rejuvenation etc. Various protocols are used for the preparation of PRP and although no fixed procedure exists, the principle methods include gathering of platelets in groups, which are 3 to 5 times greater than the physiological quality. This is followed by infusing this concentrated plasma in the tissue where recuperation is needed.

Constituents:
PRP is used in tissue repair due to the growth factors present and their efficiency to heal various injuries. Calcium chloride and thrombin are used to activate the platelets that are gathered in the PRP. PRP contains cytokines and growth factors that include:

  1. Keratinocyte growth factor
  2. Fibroblast growth factor
  3. Insulin-like growth factor 1
  4. Insulin-like growth factor 2
  5. Platelet-derived growth factor
  6. Epidermal growth factor
  7. Transforming growth factor

Conditions:

The effectiveness of PRP is being evaluated through research. The effectiveness is influenced by factors such as

 

  1. Area of the body that is treated
  2. Whether the illness is chronic or acute
  3. Health of the patient

Preparation:
There are two standard methods of preparation of PRP. In both the processes, the patient's blood (anticoagulated using citrate dextrose) is collected and passed through two centrifugation processes, which are designed to separate the concentrated PRP from the red blood cells and plasma deficient platelets. Production of PRPs vary according to different techniques and equipment.

Clinical Applications:
In humans, PRP has been used to treat different kinds of ailments such as androgenic alopecia, osteoarthritis, nerve injury, plantar fasciitis and chronic tendinitis. It is also used in plastic and oral surgery as well as for bone repair. Following 6 weeks of therapy, the patients are advised to rest. 6-12 weeks later, they are re-checked for improvement. In some cases, there might be a requirement of more than one injection. Most of the patients report that they are able to return to normal activities within 3 months.
