Dear lybrate-user, to stay fit during summers you have to avoid direct exposure to sunlight especially during noon hours. Try to work & stay in a cool & airy place. Take lot of water at least 2-3 litres if you are sweating a lot, also take fluids like fruit juices & sherbats. Eat light food, more of fruits & vegetables, avoid spicy &fried food. Do mild exercise early morning & sleep adequately at night.

1. Masturbation is a natural habit in both the genders during their life time. Continuous masturbation in men will certainly leads to unwanted curvature of penis and in women clitoris looses its sensitivity due to rough use of their fingers on clitoris. 2. Later they may not get normal pleasure or orgasm in intercourse (thrust of penis) after their marriage. 3. Masturbation once a week is fine but do not make it your habit.

DGO, MBBS

Masturbation is normal and does not cause physical problems or sexual problems. Also do not give any importance to advertisement that mention that masturbation cause health problems or destroys life, and masturbation does not require any treatment. No future problem.

Hello doctor I am 30 yrs old male from india. I had a protected vaginal intercourse with a csw (moods condom - latex made) on 13th march 2015. I don't know her hiv status, she was healthy! this is the first time I was with csw. I received protected blowjob as well. I kissed her lips for 1 min which was not protected. What are my chances of hiv infection with above exposures? after the incident I was fearing that I might have got hiv infection. I did not experience any symptoms till yet. No fever, no diarrhea but I have slight neck pain on left side (no swollen nodes) due to the the fear, I did couple of tests following that incident! hiv I -ii rapid antibody test on 15th march -2015 - results negative also tested for std such as vhdl, hcv - results negative hiv I -ii rapid antibody test on 23rd march -2015 - results negative also due to the extreme anxiety, I did hiv rna pcr tests on 30-march (17 days post exposure) - below are the details of the test. Nucleic acid testing for hiv -i (rna) nucleic acid sequence based analysis for hiv-i viral observed values: lower than detectable limits (analytical sensitivity 53iu/ml) I also did a hiv I ag & total abs to hiv I & ii (on april 10 =>28 days post exposure) by eclia which came as non -reactive. Can I be 100% sure now that I am hiv negative and don't need any further testing for hiv (either for hiv-i & hiv-ii)? is hiv I ag & total abs to hiv I & ii by eclia a 4th generation test? if yes, the result is non -reactive after 28 days for me is conclusive, so can I be sure that I am not having hiv I & ii? thanks a ton doctor for your response. Your response is really helpful to release my anxiety. I have few more doubts, kindly request you to answer. I also did a hiv I ag & total abs to hiv I & ii (on april 10) by eclia which came as non -reactive. Can I be 100% sure now that I am hiv negative and don't need any further testing for hiv (either for hiv-i & hiv-ii)? is hiv I ag & total abs to hiv I & ii by eclia a 4th generation test? if yes, the result is non -reactive after 28 days for me is conclusive, so can I be sure that I am not having hiv I & ii? thanks a ton doctor for your response.

It is not necessary that csw wil be having hiv. Good that your test are negative. But window period for infection can be upto 1 year.

Dear lybrate-user, Cholesterol at 218 is absolutely fine. It does not require any medication. You have to keep healthy lifestyle, proper exercise, diet, stress free life to stay healthy. The pain in your chest is likely to be anatomical. Do some shoulder, arm, neck rotation, extension and strengthening exercises gently. It should solve the problem regards.

Dear lybrate user. Phimosis is a congenital narrowing of the opening of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted. Phimosis is a very common problem. In most of the cases you can clear the problem yourself. Phimosis could cause moderate to severe pain while having vaginal intercourse. Apply oil on your foreskin and on the glans. Move the foreskin forward and back slowly without hurting you much. Because the oil is lubricant, it will be easier than without oil. Do this forward and back movement 20 times several times in a day. Repeat the same every day for around one month. You will get the elasticity and you will be able to retract the foreskin completely. In case if there is no result from the above massage, you can always go for a minor surgical procedure called circumcision. Take care.

Recommended Diet For Nephrotic Syndrome!

MBBS, MD (Med), DNB (Nephrology)
Nephrologist, Mumbai
Recommended Diet For Nephrotic Syndrome!

Nephrotic Syndrome is a condition which is characterised by the loss of protein into the urine (called proteinuria) as a result of increased glomerular permeability and oedema. This results in low protein level in the blood. The low levels of protein in blood result in the drawing of fluids into soft tissues. A severe form ‘hypoalbuminemia’ can cause scores of secondary diseases such as ascites (retention of fluid in the abdominal cavity), pleural effusion (build-up of fluids between the lungs and the chest), or high cholesterol. It can also result in retention of fluid in other parts of the body such as eyelids, lower extremities etc.

What can cause this?
Nephrotic syndrome is mainly caused by damage to the kidneys. This leads to an increase in the concentration of protein in the urine. In adults, it can be caused due to glomerulonephritis or damage to the glomerulus of the kidneys while in children it is likely caused by minimal change disease (kidney disease marked by the abnormal loss of protein through the urine).

The other common causes of nephritic syndromes are:

  1. Genetic disorder
  2. Immune disorder
  3. Cancer
  4. Infection
  5. Use of specific drugs
  6. Certain diseases such as diabetes mellitus, lupus
  7. The incidence of this disease is seen more often in males than in females.

Diet that is recommended in Nephrotic Syndrome:
In patients diagnosed with Nephrotic syndrome, the intake of salt, fat and protein must be checked. There should be emphasis on the consumption of dietary fibres that are present in vegetables and fruits.
The intake of protein and fluid should also be monitored, but this solely depends on personal factors such as age, weight and condition of the patient. It is recommended to consult a renal dietician who can guide you appropriately.

  1. Sodium/salt intake: The sodium or salt intake must be restricted as it leads to high blood pressure and results in fluid retention in the body, thus causing oedema (build-up of fluids within the body cavities and tissues) in the body. Avoid processed food as it contains a lot of salt.
  2. Protein intake: Protein is an essential part of the diet as it helps in the general makeup of the body and development of muscles. The consumption of protein must be kept under check and it is the best to consult your dietician for this. Loss of protein in urine needs to be replaced by class 1 high quality proteins in nephrotic syndrome.
  3. Limit fat and cholesterol intake: It is always good to curb on bad cholesterol as it is the reason behind several heart diseases. But, with patients diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome, it is highly recommended to avoid food rich in fats. This means staying away from unhealthy fatty meat or junk food.
  4. Fluid intake: Fluid intake does not have to be necessarily reduced, but it is always good to consult your doctor for the same.

“You are what you eat”. Nephrotic syndrome can slowly progress to chronic kidney disease if the necessary steps are not taken to curb it in an early stage, and diet control is a major way to do so.

I am suffering from Sleeping sickness and is not able to sleep kindly suggest some medicine.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
I am suffering from Sleeping sickness and is not able to sleep kindly suggest some medicine.
1. Avoid caffeine found in coffee, tea, chocolate, cola, and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. Quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. [use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, tvs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

Yes masturbation reduces penis size. Penis-enlarging exercises like jelqing and kegel exercises can be really helpful for strengthening erections. If done properly, they can strengthen the entire pelvic floor and groin region. They can improve blood flow to the groin region and strengthen it. If you have been wondering how to increase penis size, all you have to do is take homoepathic penis enlargement treatment for no less than 3 months.

Head ache can be of many reasons and the commonest is visual refractive error of eyes, Checking eyes and correcting errors can cure headaches, similarly the cause can be migraine and tension. Tension relieving methods and migraine medication can sure these. This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain. Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly. Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Headache is a broad term that encompasses many different things. Headaches are pains that occur in any region of the head; they can occur on both sides the head or be isolated to a certain location. Headaches can radiate across the head from a central point or have a pincering vise-like quality. They can be sharp, throbbing or dull, appear gradually or suddenly and last for multiple days or less than an hour.4 There are multiple ways to define headaches. The International Headache Society (IHS) categorize headaches as primary headaches or secondary headaches, depending on what has caused them 1) Primary headaches Primary headaches are stand-alone illnesses caused directly by the overactivity of, or problems with, structures in the head that are pain-sensitive. This includes the blood vessels, muscles and nerves of the head and neck. They may also result from changes in chemical activity in the brain. Primary headaches can occur when pain-sensitive structures in the head do not work properly. Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches and tension headaches. Some types of headache can be both primary and secondary as they may be an isolated issue or a result of another condition or illness. Such headaches can involve:  Direct physical stimuli, such as temperature and external pressure  Pain over the scalp (epicranial)  Physical exertion  Other miscellaneous headaches. 2) Secondary headaches Secondary headaches are headaches that are symptoms of another condition that stimulates the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. There are a vast number of different conditions that can cause secondary headaches, ranging in severity from an alcohol-induced hangover to a brain tumor. Secondary headaches can be the result of serious conditions such as stroke, but can equally be a consequence of eating cold food too quickly. In addition to those two examples, the following list should serve to illustrate the variety of different conditions that can cause secondary headaches:  Blood clots  Brain freeze (ice cream headaches)  Carbon monoxide poisoning  Concussion  Dehydration  Glaucoma  Influenza  Overuse of pain medication (rebound headaches)  Panic attacks  Stroke. As headaches can be a symptom of a serious condition, it is important to seek medical advice if headaches become more severe, regular or persistent. For example, if the headache is more painful and disruptive than previous headaches, worsens or fails to improve with medication or is accompanied by other symptoms such as confusion, fever, sensory changes and stiffness, a health care provider should be contacted.
