How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

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
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison and it is absorbed by liver. Then liver dismantles the alcohol and poisons itself. There is no safe limit. Every drop of alcohol is bad for liver. Please restrain from alcohol drinking. Take care.

everyone likes sunny leone. but too much thinking about her its not good for mental health. they are celebrities how it is possible to maintain affectionate relations with them.you are spending too much time on thinking to her. it is better to come out of this stage. it is not negative or bad thought. it is good thought. but too much about her it is not good. it is not related to any psychological disorder. you are not become psychy. fascism is a kind of psychological perversion. my suggestion better to remove her pictures and videos on your computer. just time observe her. but dont give too much priority on her. it is common at this age. but you should control yourself. better to concentrate on your career aspects. better to plan on your study aspects. slowly reach your study plan. dont sit alone. dont think alone. better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. be sociable all the time. be happy.ok all the best.

Whenever I get ready to go out alone I get anxiety and then belching and sleepy why?

Dear lybrate-user. That is clearly the symptoms of anxiety disorder. I think your anxiety is being triggered because you are going out. Could be general anxiety disorder or social anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

How to increase brain power? I mean how can I increase my brain power. Is there any drug available?

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
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This scenario is not happening to you alone. Every adolescent is facing the same problem. The problem is due to your brains functional overtures. Your brain becomes so vibrant and creative at this period, it can't concentrate on simple tasks. Therefore you need to be more creative while learning and reading or writing. I suggest you understand and practice effective learning methods. Take care.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

I think this is Drug induced hyperprolactemia as level is 200. In pituitary adenoma level is usually more 500, so there is no need to do an MRI at present. Gradually stop Sulpitac and shift on other antidepressants if needed by consulting any Psychiatrist directly or Online. Repeat Prolactin level after 1 months.

Hi, can depression, nervousness,tension b the cause f weight loss? If yes, then in what sense? Sm advise fr this? Thanx.
Hello lybrate user, yes there are many reasons for weight loss. 1. Depression depression has a number of symptoms. However, some people do not recognize that they have depression. They may feel low and not right but cannot say why. They may even think of it as just normal for them. Many people with depression can hide their true feelings from friends and family. Weight loss may develop due to not eating much. It is sometimes friends or family who may actually notice that a person has lost weight and it then turns out to be due to depression. 2. Dementia people in the early stages of dementia may appear to get by reasonably well but, in fact, they are not able to look after themselves very well. They may have a poor diet but appear happy in themselves. Again, it is sometimes friends or family who may first notice that a person is not right and has lost weight and it then turns out to be the early stages of dementia. Nervousness is not the reason for weight loss. Kindly consult any pediatrician or counsellor.

Hi. Let me you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent which is called 'Hairloss' rather and leads to bald areas of smooth and shiny surface. In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up which subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or hairloss- hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormaonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger any other underlying diseases, etc. Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smooking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Can't comment on Allopathic medicine you had, can be it's side-effect or can be due to deficiency! Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200/ twice a day for 1 month and revert me back. Along with that, take any one of the multivitamin - Centrum or Supradyn/ 1 tab. daily for 3mths.
