Hi lybrate-user, this habit of eating inedible and non nutritious substance is called pica in medical term. This is often seen in young age between 15-25 yrs. Females are mostly affected. Underlying iron, copper of zinc efficiency may be a cause. This kind of habit leads to malnutrition which can cause changes in skin and hairs. Psychological cause are, poor parental caring, lack of maternal care and unhappy family situation. During pregnancy this kind of behaviour is often noticed. It may also be an expression of underlying compulsive behaviour. So I would request to consult with psychiatrist and dermatologist. Thanks.

My 9 yr old boy is not able to pronounce words clearly and stutters...I had speech theraphy done in nair hospital for few months but was told later that he is fine but needs to Practice talking slowly because his mind is running faster than his tongue....is there any treatment for this because as he is getting older it gets embarrassing when he is talking..

What they say is true but you could additionally inculcate some practices suggested here. Time will eventually heal the problem with some commitment and patience. Have him read some of his school material but instead of making him merely articulate the words have his sing the statements he is supposed to actually read. Let him do the following exercises everyday as often as he can for at least 6 months: ask him to forcefully press his tongue against his lips and move it in a circular manner clockwise and anticlockwise. This is tiring but is very effective. Then have him form an ‘O’ with his lips and quickly jerk it back into an ‘E’ with the lips fully stretched towards the back, as though it has been pulled back by hooks on both sides. Then let him resonate the vowels A, E, I, O, U like he was singing it out loud and drawn out. Let him drop his lower jaw and swing it sideways like a lose jaw. Finally please check out his level of fear. This also a nervous habit stemming from some fear, perhaps from his early childhood. He must be able to express that and as the level of fear dissipates, you will see a remarkable change and transformation. Good luck.

Is schizophrenia is any dangerous. And any other side effects in future? Is it treatable?

DNB PSYCHIATRY, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia is a disorder where person hears voices which are not audible to others or believes in things which are not true. They may also show aggression without reason. This sometimes leads to risk or harming self or others and should definitely be treated at the earliest possible. It can be controlled well with medicines and counselling.

Hye, Thanks for the query. As a student your energy needs are different due to growth, development needs and also you need the right nutrition to help concentrate in studies. To stay fit and healthy you need to eat as per what your body needs. Try to avoid long gaps in between meals. Do not fast for long hours. This will help avoid binging in the next meal. Do not skip breakfast. If you want to adopt a healthy diet includes a variety of foods from the major food groups: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean protein including beans and other legumes, nuts and seeds, and healthy fats. Include foods you can find in your local grocery store  — rather than specialty non local foods. Local and seasonal foods always give us the right nutrients. Do consider your health risks if you have any when choosing foods. Stay away from calorie-laden, fatty and salty convenience and highly processed and junk foods. These are normally the foods we indulge in when we do not pay attention and are studying especially late at night. Avoid unwanted stress. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week for 20 minutes. Sleep well and drink plenty of water.

Low cholesterol linked to anxiety, depression, suicide, hemorrhagic stroke and cancers

People with very low cholesterol levels are at increased risk of developing stomach cancer, according to a study published in the International Journal of Cancer.

The study involved 2,600 residents of Hisayama, Japan, who were followed for 14 years. Gastric cancers developed in 97 subjects. After accounting for age and gender, stomach cancer rates rose significantly with descending cholesterol level. For example, among subjects with the highest cholesterol levels, the gastric cancer rate was the equivalent of 2.1 cases per 1000 persons per year; among those with the lowest cholesterol, the rate was 3.9 per 1000 persons per year.

Patients with low serum cholesterol should consider periodic gastrointestinal examination for the prevention of stomach cancer.

Low cholesterol has been earlier linked to depression, anxiety and suicide in both men and women. Another earlier report has also shown that people with cholesterol level below 180 had twice the risk of brain hemorrhage as compared to those with cholesterol levels of 230.

I am 40 year old and use rajni Gandhi without tobacco and now my mouth not fully open it should be cancer tell me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, keeping zarda or pan masala in mouth can cause injury leading to fibrosis. Even injury from sharp teeth or ill fitting dentures may cause fibrosis, leading to a premalignant condition called submucosal fibrosis where the mouth opening is reduced as checked by number of fingers easily going in mouth between teeth. You must quit any kind of addiction, check with oncologist or ENT surgeon for any ulceration or even white or red patches, and consume antioxidants and preparation with lycopene. Do not ignore as cancer is increasing very fast.

I am a computer engineer. I have a habit of smoking. I smoke 8-9 cigarettes per day. I have tried quitting it for many times but can't hold it for more than a day. I want to quit smoking.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Cigarette contains more than 4000+ chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. Takecr.

Is it right to take allopathic and homeopathic treatment simultaneously for schizophrenia patient.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
Better just go for homoeopathic medicine.Because homoeopath will prescribe medicine for a person as a whole whereas allopathy give medicine for tissue in body.Which isnt worth.So better go for homoeopathic treatment.

She never listens to what I want. All my friends parents are amazing and always tend to their needs .My mom doesn't even let me look the way I want to. Is there any way that I can bring a change in her? She is a very stubborn woman.

Its very common now a days with rapid changing society the gap is increasing day by day between parents and children and this gap may be in any form like for eating ,for dress, for group of friends etc. Neither you are wrong nor she is .may be there is some fear in her mind for something but one thing which you also cannot deny that she is your real well wisher. On your part its obvious we have to make ourself as the society and people around us .what you can do is to take help of any professional so that your point of view should also convey to your mother and her fear or any type of problem which she is not able to tell you she can clarify with that person.

Hello, from the information above it appears that you have bipolar disorder and currently you are having a depressive episode. You need to consult thePsychiatrist for proper dose adjustment which will definitely help to obercome all your symptoms. Kindly do not stop taking medication as it will not help to get out from depression and also there is chance of relapse of manic which is definitely more devastating for you and your family. Stoping medication abruptly will disturb your bipolar illness course and there are more chances of more frequent and serious episodes. Kindly consult Psychiatrist for proper management. Thanks.

If he has digestive problems then it needs to be looked at. Eating a wholesome food (a balanced diet) should not be just a routine but an essential duty as diet is an important part of health. The other aspects of health being good sleep, exercising every day and drinking sufficient water. Please make a habit of visiting a doctor for annual health check (for all members of the family) so as to stay healthy and take precautions to prevent diseases.
