alcohol in any quantity is bad for health in a normal person and more so in a person with diabetes. Plus taking regular treatment for diabetes is a must. Please understand diabetes is just not increase in sugar, it affects every single organ in the body like eyes (retina- leading to blindness), affects blood vessels supplying lower limbs and heart, leading to ulcers on the non healing on foot, going up to amputation, coronary artery disease causing silent heart attacks, kidney damage and neuropathy. So controlling blood sugar effectively is absolutely essential as well as avoiding alcohol consumption. Alcohol affects liver, patient fail to recognise hypoglycemia, affects stomach causing gastritis. Talk to him about these things, may get convinced. Thanks for the question.

Sir I'm male 21 year old engineering student, my problem is that I can't study more than one hour, but my course is very vast.

Dont worry. Read one hour at a time, daily. That is sufficient. If not, after one hour take abreak for 10 minutes. Then continue. Write down notes, prepare charts or diagrams doing all these will generate interest in that subject.

You are basically depressed personality. Then why do you think unnecessary aspects. If think it may stoped it may not stopped. Result you are facing chronic depression. It may caused some times hospitalised also. So please do not think severely this matters. Better to maintain a lovely and affectionate relative relation with your husband. He will come to you and believe your love. He may be stopped. Illegal matters always depend on money aspects. It will not continue long time. Wife is the permanent partner. Your husband one day he realize the truth. He will come to you and love to you. If you regularly suspect your husband may go in a severe manner and do the work more seriously. If you ignore and do not care about this matters. He may come to your route. So please do not think. Take rest. Go to psychologist to recover your depressive status. Better to feel always comfortable. Take good food and sleep well. Good wishes.

Why Should You Take Care Of Your Mental Health?

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Why Should You Take Care Of Your Mental Health?

The first question when you greet somebody is 'how are you' and this often refers to our state of well-being. While most answers would be great, awesome or good, we usually think of how we are doing physically. While some of us may talk about physical conditions (say things like feverish, have a cold, etc.), not many would think of talking about mental health conditions. However, mental health is very important for overall well-being.

Can you think of someone who is severely depressed or anxious all the time and have a good physical health? Chances are very bleak, and if you consider the overall health as a mix of mental and physical balance, this is not possible. Read on to understand how important mental health is and why you should start paying more attention to it.

  1. Improved physical health: If someone is in a stressed state, it is obvious that they would not be able to do the activities they enjoy. Being affected mentally also leads to reduced immunity and sleep disturbances, making the person prone to infections and other disorders. Stress is one of the main risk factors for chronic medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
  2. Improved prognosis: Most often, doctors focus on treating the physical aspects of a person’s health. However, with recent emphasis on mental health, more and more doctors are looking at wholesome measures to improve a person’s health. Results show that when a person’s mental health is also addressed, the physical ailments respond very well.
  3. Improved productivity: People with unattended mental health disorders often resort to absence from work and/or school, can have financial instability, be homeless and can fall repeatedly. Being mentally healthy provides overall changed perspective of life and therefore improves productivity.
  4. Improved personal relationships: Children of people affected with mental illness are prone to neglect, abuse, rejection, and behavioural issues. There is also social isolation, which may lead into adulthood, and these children may also have emotional health problems. Others in the close circle including spouses, siblings, parents, close friends and colleagues would be clearly affected by a person who is mentally unhealthy.
  5. Social effects: These people are highly prone to social crimes like rape, murder, theft, violence, etc. They may not be able to afford their treatment and/or resort to these crimes to assert themselves.
  6. Improved quality of life: Life expectancy is higher in people who are mentally healthy. Even with mild symptoms of anxiety and depression, this is reduced, and the chances of a happier, healthier life are reduced.

Whatever the effect, mental health needs to be addressed as equally as we do physical problems, using medications, counselling, or lifestyle changes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.

JOINT DISORDERS

JOINT DISORDERS
Joint Disorders
A ‪#‎joint‬ is where two or more bones come together, like the ‪#‎knee‬, ‪#‎hip‬, ‪#‎elbow‬, or ‪#‎shoulder‬. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or ‪#‎diseases‬, including
1. ‪#‎Arthritis‬ - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Over time, the joint can become severely damaged.
2. ‪#‎Bursitis‬ - inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that cushions the joint.
3. ‪#‎Dislocations‬ - injuries that force the ends of the ‪#‎bones‬ out of position
Treatment of ‪#‎JointProblems‬ depends on the cause. If you have a ‪#‎SportsInjury‬, treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. For arthritis, injuries, or other diseases, you may need joint replacement surgery to remove the damaged joint and put in a new one.

Because of anxiety disorder can I forget even small things also. I am 26 yrs old.

Psychologist,
You will have to address the cause of anxiety to help you overcome forgetfulness. A counsellor will be able to help you gently go through your life experiences and help you discover where anxiety is coming from. It's usually from the future and not feeling ready for some changes that it might bring along with it. Changes are inevitable in life and they will come. It is better to prepare ourselves and face them rather than avoiding them. A counsellor will help you to prepare yourself for the changes that you are expecting so that you feel more confident and in control of yourself. Having a realistic expectation from self and others will be essential. Looking for perfection in self and others also brings anxiety. Working for excellence is less stressful. You can contact me on private chat if you are interested.

13 Tips for Mega-Memory and Concentration

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, Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health
Psychologist, Palakkad
13 Tips for Mega-Memory and Concentration

Don?t buy this one
?I can so do my homework better with the TV or radio on.? Smart kids would get an even better grade without it. Any speech or speech-like sounds automatically use up part of your brain?s attention capacity, whether you are aware of it or not.

Everybody forgets what they went into the
next room to get
It isn?t a problem with memory. Usually, it?s a matter of something psychologists call interference or divided attention. If you step on the cat you forget the drink of water you got up for.

A trick to recall what you just forgot
Trace your movements back in your mind. Picture what you were just doing and where you were. Work back inside your memory step by step until you find it. Pop! You will remember why you are standing there with the fridge door open.

The ?White Noise? machine
White noise is a blended spray of sounds representing the entire range of audible frequency. Since it has no patterns to it your brain ignores it easily. Machines that generate white noise mask other potentially distracting sounds. A TV set is not white noise unless the sound is off and the screen is in another room.

Why you can?t remember the first film of a double-feature
One meaningful bunch of information often gets temporarily blanked out by the next batch you try to learn. That interference is only temporary; take breaks so that the facts you are studying won?t interfere with one another as you study them. Interference also works the other way. For example, when your friend gets a new telephone number, the old one will still be so familiar to you that it?s hard to remember the new one right away.

Where young brains have an edge
For anyone, it can be difficult to pay attention to more than one thing at once. That?s especially true if the two things are similar. Experiments with divided attention tasks show that the ability to filter out distractions and juggle competing demands on our attention is one of the most fragile kinds of skill we possess. The ability to cope with this kind of task typically begins to decline between ages 30 and 40.

Don?t study on an empty stomach
Glucose improves memory, even for people with Alzheimer?s. That?s why memory formation is better after a meal. But eat light at lunch if you work all day. Digestion robs fuel from the brain.

Working memory workout
Here?s a departure from your usual routine for solving a crossword puzzle. Try it with a relatively easy puzzle. Go through the clues and figure out as many of their solutions as you can in your head, without filling them in. Then cover the clues and try to fill in the grid from memory.

Use it or lose it
The kinds of skills that tend to weaken with age are ones that, at any age, must be used to maintain them. Your brain adds physical capacity, just as your other physical systems do. Capacity grows when you work hard. You can get your brain back ?in shape? but it won?t stay there without regular effort. That?s a spiral that can go up or down, depending on the choices you make.

What do ?photographic? memory geniuses have going for them?
People who use memorization tricks often seem to have a bigger memory. They worked to learn data that helps them shortcut long calculations, for example. Or they develop visual memory so they can visualize the objects that words represent. Tricks that improve everyday performance do not, as a rule, improve the brain?s automatic ability to store and recall data. On the other hand, if the tricks become automatic and habitual, people who use those tricks do have a good memory in practice.

Pills for better memory
Some research has found evidence that taking painkillers such as ibuprofen ? collectively known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) ? protect against Alzheimer?s disease because they reduce inflammation in the nerve cells. Antioxidants, such as vitamin E also seem to help.

Visualize it if you want to remember it
Your brain knew how to remember what something looked like way before it learned what to name it. So use those primitive visual powers any way you can to tag new things you want to remember. Think of names and other words as shorthand for the real thing you can see in your mind?s eye.
