My son is 19 years old having epilepsy since 4 years with medicines levepsy 500 * 3 and velprin chrono 500 * 3 daily still he is having seizures.what can be done

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
first of all ensure that he is taking them daily..it is highly unlikely that on regular medications with two antiepileptics , one still develop seizures..even one missed dose can be bothersome...what was his EEG reports and CT scan reports (u must have got them done)as there are various infective causes of seizures which are treatable with specific medications.. tablet phenobarbitone has good results where both these above medications fail...but it has to be prescribed by your consulting doctor as its not OTC drug...

Dear Madam, I have found it is futile asking questions on your website. I had earlier asked questions a few times but was disappointed as there was no reply given to me. I have noticed that the same or identical questions are repeated over and over again with only names changed. The website is nothing but soliciting of customers by the doctors on the panel. Or perhaps to increase the readership that would ultimately increase the website value in terms of money - like any other app say UBER, OLA, TAXIFORSURE. MG Kapoor.

dear,, there might be reasons why your question was not answered before,might be question was not approved by the I T team,,.. but nevertheless its visible.. but this time u have not given details of your problem and what is that bothering u ..if Gilbert is what your problem is then nothing to worry ... first i need to know your bilirubin levels.. if it is raised then tablet phenobarbitone is what will keep it under check..it has been prescribed for this since long ...but the dosage and duration i can tell only after your complete LFTreports and exact PROBLEM...i think u re hypothyroid too ..in that case need to know your latest T3 T4 TSH report also and yes i have ample time to give u a patient hearing ...dont get frustated.!!!!!.

Acne (Pimples)- Myths And Facts

What is acne?
Acne [pimples] is an inflammatory skin disease, which affects millions of people throughout the world. The eruptions usually occur on the face, but can also affect the arms, back and chest.

What causes acne?
The oil producing glands in the skin are called the sebaceous glands. The hormone testosterone acts on these glands at puberty leading to increased secretion of sebum. The dead cells, bacteria and sebum form a plug at the outlet of the pilosebaceous follicle. The plug formed on the surface of the skin appears as a black dot-the ‘ blackhead’. If the plug remains just below the skin it appears as a whitish elevation-the ‘whitehead’. Sometimes, the plugged follicle bursts or becomes inflamed leading to the formation of small or large solid bumps, pus pimples [pustules] and cavities containing a sticky fluid [cysts].

When does acne start?
Acne usually starts with comedones at puberty i. E. Between 10 and 12 years of age, when the greasiness of the skin starts. It affects both boys and girls. Severe acne leading to scarring can occur in both sexes though commoner in men. Acne often reaches its peak between 13 and 19 years of age. Later it generally starts subsiding, though it may persist until the early or mid-twenties. Sometimes acne starts or reappears in mid-thirties when hormonal influences play a major role.

Is it hereditary?
When a person suffers from severe acne it is often found that one or both of his or her parents have had it like this; however this is not always so.

Does diet influence acne?
High caloric food can trigger or exacerbate existing acne. But here I want to put the fact that a high glycemic index diet act as single edged sword but milk and milk products act as double edged sword. So if you have serious type acne then you have to give up your love for milk. And also if if you are convinced that a particular food exacerbates acne then it might be worthwhile avoding the same. Have healthy food habits and eat a lot of fresh fruits, vegetables, salads and drink a lot of water.

Do I have to avoid cosmetics if I have acne?
Greasy [oil based cosmetics] block the pores on the skin and tend to bring on or increase preexisting acne. The same applies to moisturizers that are too heavy and may block the skin pores. A sudden bout of acne following facials, clean-up, bleaching ect…is common.

Can drugs cause acne?

Pills [oral contraceptives] can sometimes aggravate acne. Steroids, inh [given for tuberculosis] and anti-epileptics like phenobarbitone can produce acne. Topical steroids applied on the face often triggers acneform eruptions after they are withdrawn.

Are there any other predisposing factors?
A shower of new lesions often occurs a few days prior to the onset of menstruation in females. Tight fitting jeans may occlude the ducts leading to acne on the buttocks and thighs. Prolonged wearing of helmets can lead to pimples on the forehead. Both acne and dandruff occur on greasy skin and can coexist.

Why should acne be treated at all?

Acne can produce pustules and cysts, which can lead to pemanent disfiguring scars if left, untreated. Acne can scar not only the skin but also the psyche. It can produce low self-esteem, self-consciousness, anxiety, depression and introvert personality. Clear skin helps tremendously in boosting the self-confidence of an individual.

What is the right treatment for acne?
Consult your dermatologist for a proper scientific treatment. There are some general instructions to be followed by the patients:
1) wash your face 3-4 times daily with soap and water.
2) the scalp should be cleansed 2-3 times a week preferably with shampoo.
3) avoid all greasy cosmetics on the face.
4) do not squeeze pimples. It can cause severe scarring.

There are several topical agents and oral medications available for successful treatment which your doctor will decide. You may need long courses of antibiotics for several months in severe acne. For resistant, severe recalcitrant acne your doctor may suggest a medication called isotretinoin.

But you should have a lot of patience and take medications and take medications in the correct doses prescribed and for a proper length of time. Remember that it might take several weeks for acne medication to take effect and the face to clear.

 I ignored my acne and now I have scars. Can you do something for my scars?
It is always better to prevent scars by proper and early treatment of severe acne. Your doctor will advise you on treatment available for marks.

Psychological Distress And Anxiety Related To Semen-Loss / Masturbation

Psychological Distress And Anxiety Related To Semen-Loss / Masturbation

The term ‘Dhat syndrome’ was first described by Dr. N.N. Wig in a 1960 issue of the (Indian) Journal of Clinical and Social Psychiatry, and then by Dr. J.S. Neki in the British Journal of Psychiatry (1973).  According to a short paper by Dr. Om Prakash in the Indian Journal of Psychiatry, dhat syndrome comprises various psychological, somatic and sexual symptoms attributed by the patient to the passing of whitish fluid, believed to be semen in urine (i.e., psychological distress and anxiety related to semen-loss). Prakash says that the word ‘dhat’ is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘dhatu’ (which has multiple meanings including ‘metal’, ‘elixir’ and ‘constituent part of the body’). He also noted that:

  •  “This notion of seminal loss frightens the individual into developing a sense of doom if a single drop of semen is lost, thereby producing a series of somatic symptoms…fear of semen loss and resulting problems [in India] is so strong that cures are advertised by vaids and hakims everywhere – on walls, on television, in newspapers and on roadside hoardings”.
  • The anxiety surrounding the semen loss can also relate to the releasing of semen via nocturnal emissions (i.e., ‘wet dreams’) and masturbation. The symptoms include fatigue, listlessness, appetite loss, lack of physical strength, poor concentration, forgetfulness, guilt, and (in some cases) sexual dysfunction. Given the syndrome relates to psychological anxiety surrounding semen loss, the disorder is (necessarily) found among men, but interestingly, the dhat syndrome has also been applied to women who experience similar symptoms relating to white vaginal discharge). According to an online article on CBSs, it claims that:
  • “The anxiety related to semen loss can be traced back thousands of years to Ayurvedic texts, where the loss of a single drop of semen, the most precious body fluid, could destabilize the entire body”.

Another study  reported that 93 (out of 144) consecutive patients attending a sexual dysfunction clinic had dhat syndrome. A number of papers published on the dhat syndrome in the 1980s and 1990s all report that depressive, anxiety and/or somatoform disorders are prevalent in the majority of dhat sufferers. A small study reported that ‘semen loss’ was seen by most of the men as the main reason for their sexual dysfunction. The same study reported that 40% of the sample had hypochondriasis. 

  • Dhat alone (where their symptoms are attributed to semen loss, and with presenting symptoms that are hypochondriacal, depressive or anxiety-related in nature)
  • Dhat with comorbid depression and anxiety (where dhat is seen as a symptom accompanying another disorder)
  • Dhat with sexual dysfunction
  • The duration of the symptoms can be relatively short-lived (e.g., 3-12 months) but some papers report people suffering for up to 20 years. The most common co-morbid disorders and sexual dysfunctions associated with dhat. This included depressive neurosis (40%-42%), anxiety neurosis (21%-38%), somatoform and hypochondriasis (32%-40%), erectile dysfunction (22%-62%), and premature ejaculation (22%-44%). It is also reported that the majority (i.e., two-thirds) of dhat sufferers recover (66%), with the remainder either improved (22%) or unchanged (12%). Dhat beliefs are often based on misconception and myths:

“These myths and misconceptions which are deeply rooted in Indian culture are passed from generation to generation. Due to the lack of proper information and lack of open communication between parents and children, the only source of knowledge for many remain their peers, who are equally ignorant about the subject, and this leads to widespread misconceptions. Many people consult unqualified practitioners who reinforce their ignorance”

Lose Fat And Inches Quickly And Safely Through Ayurveda!

Obesity is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide, and contributes to various diseases and conditions, particularly cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis, depression etc.. Ayurveda approaches obesity as a metabolic disorder caused by poor eating habits or sedentary life style, or hormonal and thyroid issues, genetic factors, side effect of drugs or a combination of these. 

Here are few easy ways to support your body lose fat effectively: 

  1. Water - Drink atleast 2 litres of plain water daily. Detox drinks like Green tea, Cumin tea, fennel and coriander tea, ginger tea, cinnamon tea are helpful in weight loss. But they should be in addition to the 2 litres of water. 
  2. Breathing exercise - Practicing pranayama on a daily basis can make a huge difference when you are trying to lose weight. A relaxing yoga routine in the mornings with pranayama will not only set the mood for the day but also boost your metabolism. Yoga facilitates weight loss, flexibility and promotes good health. 
  3. Walking - Walk atleast 1 hour daily. You can walk at your own comfortable pace, but non-stop for I hour. Fat burning is triggered only after 45 to 50 minutes of continuous exercise. The good part is, it stays that way for the next 12 hours – yes, your fat metabolism stays active and can burn fat for energy for the next 12 hours
  4. Garcinia - Kokkum or Garcinia is a sour fruit used in a lot of dishes in south India. Garcinia naturally contains Alpha Hydroxy Citric acid, which prevents the conversion of carbohydrates/sugars to fat in the body. So if you consume 600mg Garcinia 20 to 30 minutes before a meal, the carbs in your meal won't deposit as fat in the body. Garcinia is perhaps the most sold natural weight loss supplement in the world at the moment. 
  5. Apple Cider Vinegar - Taking a table spoon of apple cider vinegar daily morning can trigger the cleansing process in the body. This often speeds up the weight loss efforts and bring faster results. 
  6. Triphala - One of the ancient remedies, Triphala includes three super fruits of India which are amalaki, haritaki, and bibhitaki. Each of them has individual advantages that work together as an elixir for weight loss. 
    • Amlaki is packed with antioxidants that reduce inflammation, maintains healthy blood sugar level and leads to lean body mass. 
    • Haritaki helps to cleanse the body by eliminating wastes from the colon. 
    • Bibhitaki eradicates body fluids and also helps burn accumulated fat. Triphala can be consumed with lukewarm water. 
  7. Avoid sweets and cut down on carbs - Sweets in all forms including sugar, fructose and artificial sweeteners like aspartame should be avoided. Also cut down on carbs like rice, bread, pastries, cookies etc and increase on vegetables especially leafy ones and those that grow above soil [minimize root vegetables]. 
  8. Massage - Various Ayurvedic massages performed by trained personnel can mobilize fat and speed up burning deposits. It will also tone and shape up the body, reduces cellulite and promotes better circulation and relieve fluid retention. Follow the above tips and you could be on your way to a healthy and sustainable weight loss.
