What Is Peak Bone Mass?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, DNB - Orthopedics

What Is Peak Bone Mass?

As a kid grows older, the calcium content in the bones increases. It reaches a peak in early adult age, around 25-28 years and then there is a gradual reduction of calcium from the bones at a slow pace during the rest of the life. The loss of calcium from bones accelerates after menopause in ladies. That means their bones loose calcium at a much faster rate and become weaker and weaker, leading to porous bones. That is called Osteoporosis. Weak bones fracture easily and affect the lifestyle in old age.

So, it is clear that the lower the peak bone mass one attains, the higher are the chances of developing osteoporosis and fractures in old age. That is why it is important to try and reach a higher peak bone mass during growing years of your life. 

That can be achieved by calcium and vitamin D rich diet, adequate exposure to sunlight and regular exercises. Ladies after their menopause should check their bone density by DEXA scan atleast once in two years. Discuss with your doctor the risks of developing osteoporosis and fractures, and prevention tips.

If you are comfortable , I think nobody should have any objection. But these things will deviate you from your carrier and school which definitely is not good. Also this type of contacts are only for short time and break but it will effect you as you are young and she is matured. Moreso she is your relative and sex within the family or relatives is INCEST and society does not accept it.

Ovulation in hindi - क्या होता है ओवुलेशन यानी अंडोत्सर्ग

Ovulation in hindi - क्या होता है ओवुलेशन यानी अंडोत्सर्ग

बहुत कम लोगों को अपने शरीर में होने वाले परिवर्तनों और उनकी वजहों की जानकारी होती है। उम्र के साथ शरीर में आने वाले चेंजेस की अगर हमें सही जानकारी हो, तो हम अपने शरीर की जरूरतों को सही ढंग से पूरा कर सकते हैं। और शरीर से जो एक्सपेक्ट करते हैं उसे पा सकते हैं। उदाहरण के लिए प्रेग्नेंट होने के लिए कब ट्राय करें इसकी जानकारी होना। हालांकि ऐसे मुद्दों की लंबी लिस्ट है पर आज हम जानेंगे ऐसे शरीरिक स्थिति के बारे में जो किसी भी महिला के जीवन में अहम रोल अदा करता है। जिसे हम ओवुलेशन यानी अंडोत्सर्ग के नाम से जाना जाता है। हममें से बहुत से लोगों को लगता है कि गर्भधारण कर लेना एक मामूली प्रक्रिया है जो कभी भी शारीरिक संबन्ध स्थापित करने से हो जाता है पर वास्तविकता इससे काफी अलग है। गर्भ ठहरना शरीर की लंबी क्रिया प्रतिक्रिया का परिणाम है। और इसकी शुरुआत होती शरीरिक संबन्ध के बाद ओवुलेशन की स्थिति तक। तो आइये हम जानते हैं की ओवुलेशन क्या है इसे पहचाने कैसे और इसके फायदे क्या हैं। 

ओवुलेशन महीने का वो समय होता है (12 से 24 घंटे) जब अंडे वीर्य या स्पर्म के साथ मिलने को तैयार होता है।इसमें अंडे अन्डकोशों से ऋतुचक्र के समय निकलते हैं। इस ऋतुचक्र को समझने से ही आप समझ पाएंगे की ओवुलेशन कब होगा। हर महीने एक महिला के अंडकोष से 15 से 20 अंडे निकलते हैं। ये अंडे फैलोपियन ट्यूब से होते हुए गर्भाशय तक पहुँचते हैं।

अपने ग्रीवा यानी सर्विक्स को समझें
अपने ओवुलेशन के बारे में जानने का ये भी एक बेहतरीन तरिका है। चक्र के शुरू में ग्रीवा यानी (योनी और गर्भाशय के बीच का रास्ता) थोड़ी सख्त, नीची और बंद होती है। लेकिन ओवुलेशन की शुरुवात होते ही यह खुल जाती है और मुलायम हो जाती है ताकि वो स्पर्म को अपने अन्दर समेत सके। अगर आप अपने ग्रीवा की जांच रोज करें तो आप व् की शुरुवात को समझ सकती हैं। अपने पीरियड के खत्म होने के बाद वो जगह फॉर से सख्त हो जाती है।
लेकिन जिन महिलाओं में रेगुलर पीरियड नही होता है उनमें ओवुलेशन का समय अलग होता है। कभी-कभी एक के बाद एक ओवरी में अण्डे मेच्योर होते हैं और हार्मोन में वृद्धि के साथ परिपक्व होकर अण्डे बाहर आते हैं। परिवक्व अण्डे फैलोपियन ट्यूब से होते हुए यूटरस की तरफ आते हैं और ट्यूब में रुककर निषेचित होने के लिए शुक्राणु की प्रतीक्षा करते हैं।
ओवुलेशन का सही पता चल जाये तो इसके कई फायदे हैं आपको गर्भ धारण करने में आसानी होती है। अगर ओवुलेशन प्रक्रिया के दौरान सेक्स न किया जायें तो बड़ी आसानी से बर्थ कंट्रोल किया जा सकता है। आइए हम आपको बताते हैं कि कैसे आप आवुलेशन का पता आसानी से लगा सकती हैं। 

ओवुलेशन के लक्षण 

  • जिन महिलाओं का पीरियड रेगुलर होता है वो बड़ी आसानी से ओवुलेशन की प्रक्रिया को समझ सकती हैं। क्योंकि उनमें ओवुलेशन का दिन निश्चित होता है। 
  • अगर आपका मासिक चक्र पूरे 28 दिन में होता है तो 12वें और 16वें दिन के लक्षणों को पहचाने। इसी दिन ओवुलेशन प्रक्रिया होने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। 
  • जिन महिलाओं में रेगुलर पीरियड नही होता है उनमें यह क्रिया अनिश्चित होती है। मासिक चक्र डिस्टर्ब होने के साथ ही ओवुलेशन का समय बदल जाता है। 
  • ओवुलेशन का पता लगाने के लिए 12वें और 16वें दिनों के बीच के संकेतों को समझें। आपका शरीर कुछ संकेत दे तो इसका मतलब आप फर्टाइल फेज में हैं। 

सर्विकल म्यूकस 
ओवुलेशन प्रक्रिया के दौरान सर्विकल म्यूकस में परिवर्तन हाने लगता है। योनि स्राव की मात्रा में गाढ़ापन और स्पस्ट तौर पर अंतर दिखता है। योनि स्राव अन्य दिनों में चिपचिपा होता है लेकिन ओवुलेशन के समय यह ज्यादा चिकनाईयुक्त और छूने पर तनाव प्रतीत होता है। 

बाकि दिनों के मुकाबले शरीर का तापमान बढ़ जाता है। सुबह उठकर अपने शरीर का तापमान जांचिए अगर यह ज्यादा है तो ओवुलेशन की प्रक्रिया शुरू होने के संकेत हैं। इसके लिए सामान्य दिनों में भी थर्मामीटर के जरिए शरीर का तापमान लीजिए। ऐसे में अगर आपके शरीर का तापमान सामान्य दिनों की तुलना में ज्यादा हो तो ओवुलेशन का पता लगा सकते हैं। 

कामुक इच्छा
ओवुलेशन प्रक्रिया के दौरान सेक्स की इच्छा बढ़ जाती है। इस दौरान फर्टाइल फेज होता है जिसके कारण यौन संबंध बनाने की प्रबल इच्छा होती है।

Causes and Symptoms of Metabolic Bone Disease

Causes and Symptoms of Metabolic Bone Disease

Metabolic Bone Disease is a term used for various conditions of the bones that can be caused by a number of different disorders. Most of these disorders are developed due to nutritional deficiencies, defects in the bone metabolism procedure or due to hereditary defects in the skeletal structure. Conditions that fall under the category are osteoporosis, osteomalacia, rickets, Paget's disease, parathyroid conditions, chemotherapy induced bone loss and menopause induced bone loss.

Causes of Metabolic Bone Diseases:

  1. Imbalance in the level of calcium : Too much calcium or too little calcium can cause bone diseases. While the overabundance of calcium (hypercalcemia) in the body will lead to calculi formation, which can be harmful for the body, the lack of calcium (hypocalcemia) causes weakness, bone pain and restricted growth. 
  2. Deficiency of phosphorus: Low phosphorus in blood (hypophosphatemia) leads to softening of the bone tissue and bone loss. Osteomalacia is commonly caused by phosphorus deficiencies.
  3. Deficiency of Vitamin D: Vitamin D is essential for the body to absorb calcium. Cells called osteoblasts need vitamin D in order to absorb calcium and secrete the bone tissue proteins. A deficiency of vitamin D can lead to a number of metabolic bone diseases like rickets and osteoporosis.
  4. Over or under secretion of the parathyroid hormone:The parathyroid hormone (PTH) stimulates the secretion of an enzyme, which converts the inactive circulatory form of vitamin D into its active usable form. The hormone can also increase the circulation of free or ionized calcium (Ca2+), which is not attached to proteins. Both underproduction and overproduction of the hormone causes skeletal problems.

Symptoms of Metabolic Bone Diseases:

The symptoms of most of the Metabolic Bone Diseases are similar, such as 

  1. A dull, throbbing pain in the bones is the most common symptom. The pain is frequent and lasts for a long amount of time, but unlike muscular pain, the exact region of bone pain cannot be specified.
  2. Severe joint pains accompanied by stiffness and swelling of the joints. The patient experience pain during regular physical activities, especially during cold weather conditions.
  3. Frequent fractures are caused by most bone diseases because the bone mineral density decreases drastically. Severe bone injury may be caused by mild trauma.
  4. Defects in the bones can cause bowed out legs and a bent backbone.
  5. A general feeling of exhaustion is often caused by bone diseases.
  6. Kidney stones are an associated complication of metabolic bone diseases.

Dear sir/Madam, Can I have sex with my wife on 13 th day after her period date and continue on 14, 16, 18th dates if it is not possible to have sex on 12 th day and how many days a ovule will be ready to combine with sperm i. E. As egg release day is around 12 to 14 th day from the period date is it ok to have sex on 13, 14, 16. Days after the period date and how many days an egg remains after its release from fallopian tube. Please confirm.

Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
It is difficult to predict the exact days for ovulation. It may vary from person to person. The best way is to calculate the expected fertility period and have contact every day or every second day. For a woman with regular cycles, this is calculated as 2 weeks prior to the next expected period. 4 days before and 4 days after this date gives the fertility period.

Can I Eat Rice If I Have Diabetes?

Diabetologist, Hyderabad
Can I Eat Rice If I Have Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases where the body does not adequately produce insulin, use insulin properly, or both. Insulin plays a crucial role in allowing blood sugar into the cells to be used for energy. There are two main types: type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
A woman running in the park with her dog
Staying healthy by exercising and eating well is recommended for people with diabetes.

People with diabetes have abnormally high levels of blood sugar. This can damage many organs in the body if left untreated. The national institute of diabetes and digestive and kidney diseases recommend the following steps to manage diabetes:

 Make healthy choices in eating
 Engage in regular physical activity or exercise
 Take medications, if required.

Healthy eating is important in keeping blood sugar levels at a healthy level. The healthy range is 80 to 130 mg/dl before meals or below 180 mg/dl after meals, according to the american diabetes association.

People with type 1 diabetes require insulin. Various insulin delivery systems and protocols are used to manage blood sugar both between and at meal times.

People with type 2 diabetes often manage their condition with diet and exercise, and with medications as needed to keep blood sugar within the target range. These medications vary in how they work.

People with diabetes will have different treatment plans, and they will respond to food, exercise, and medication differently.

It is important to consult with a doctor to get individualized recommendations on target blood sugar levels, medications, diet, and exercise.
How do carbohydrates affect diabetes?

Carbohydrates are an important source of energy for the body. Carbohydrates are found in foods that have starches and natural or added sugars. Examples are grains, vegetables and legumes, fruit, dairy products, and sweets.

Carbohydrates are broken down by the digestive system into sugar. When the digested sugar enters the blood, the body produces a hormone called insulin. Insulin helps the sugar enter cells. Once the cells absorb the sugar, blood sugar levels fall.

People with diabetes have an impaired ability to produce insulin, use insulin, or both.

People with type 1 diabetes cannot produce insulin, so they take insulin to make sure the cells can get the sugar they need for energy.

People with type 2 diabetes are often insulin resistant. They also often have difficulty producing enough insulin to keep their blood sugar in the normal range.
Counting carbohydrates

Carbohydrate counting is a way of keeping track of the carbohydrates in the daily diet. A person with diabetes who uses carbohydrate counting to manage their diet sets an amount of carbohydrate to eat for meals and snacks.
Foods containing carbohydrates
Bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes are all sources of carbohydrates.

The american diabetes association suggest a target of about 45 to 60 grams of carbohydrate per meal. This recommendation may vary depending on other factors such as gender, weight goals, and blood sugar target goals.

The three different types of carbohydrates are starch, sugar, and fiber.

Starches are complex carbohydrates found in starchy vegetables such as peas, potatoes, and corn. Beans and whole grains are also complex carbohydrates.

Fiber comes from plants and cannot be digested. Fiber is found in foods such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains, legumes, and nuts.

Unlike other carbohydrates, fiber does not raise blood sugar, and it can help to slow the digestion of meals. This helps to minimize spikes in blood sugar. It is recommended to eat between 20 to 35 grams of fiber per day.

Sugar is a carbohydrate. It is generally absorbed into the body more quickly. There are natural sugars found in milk and fruit. There may also be added sugars in canned fruits, baked goods, and processed foods.

There are also carbohydrates in non-starchy vegetables such as lettuce, peppers, cucumber, mushrooms, and many others. There are fewer carbohydrates in these foods because they have a high water content. For example, a half cup of cucumber has around 2 grams of carbohydrate.

The type and amount of carbohydrate will affect post-meal blood sugar levels.

Foods that digest more slowly, such as those with a lot of fiber, and those eaten as a mixed meal, digest more slowly. They can help to prevent post-meal spikes in blood sugar. Large amounts of carbohydrates eaten at one time will raise blood sugar more than smaller amounts.
Is eating rice healthy with diabetes?

High-carbohydrate foods like grains, cereals, pasta, rice, and starchy vegetables are not forbidden, but they should be eaten in moderation.

Rice is a high-carbohydrate grain, but it can be incorporated into meals in appropriate amounts.

One-third of a cup of rice has 15 grams of carbohydrate. That accounts for one-fourth to one-third of the amount of carbohydrate recommended for a single meal, if the target is 45-60 grams of carbohydrate per meal.

Meals that also include healthy proteins and fats can help to slow the impact of the rice on blood sugar levels.
Are some types of rice healthier than others?

Some grains are better than others for managing diabetes.

A scale called the" glycemic index" measures how quickly food is digested into sugar and absorbed in the blood. High glycemic foods raise blood sugar faster and should be eaten in limited portions, or eaten with lower glycemic index foods.

White rice is more processed and it has a higher glycemic index than brown rice, although the index of brown rice can vary with type and brand.

Different varieties of rice have different glycemic indexes. Some long grain rice varieties, converted rice, and basmati rice varieties are lower on the gi scale than white rice.

Puffed rice cereal and rice cakes are sometimes thought of as diet foods, but they have a high glycemic index and they are not ideal for healthy meals.

Foods that are high in fiber offer many health benefits. They help with blood sugar control, they promote bowel health, and they may lower cholesterol.

Whole grains have more fiber than other grains. It is important to check the label to check the fiber content.
Tips for preparing rice

Some brown rice varieties are unprocessed and have more fiber. They can be part of a balanced meal when eaten in proper portions. Mixing brown rice with other foods can help to balance blood sugar levels. Examples include legumes, such as red beans, or protein and healthy fats.
A bowl of brown rice
Brown rice may have a lower glycemic index than white rice.

Brown rice takes longer to cook than white rice, but the cooking process is simple. People can cook brown rice in a pot or rice cooker at a ratio of 1.5 cups of water per 1 cup of rice.

The instructions are as follows:

 Bring rice and water to a boil in an uncovered pot
 Cover the pot and simmer for about 20 minutes
 Turn off heat and let the covered pot sit for at least 10 minutes.

Rice can be mixed with seasonings, herbs, vegetables, and nuts such as slivered almonds.

Brown rice can be stored in a refrigerator and used for leftovers. People can reheat brown rice on the stove or microwave and serve with beans and salsa for a quick meal.

Care must be taken with storage, because cooked rice left at room temperature can develop toxins that lead to food poisoning.
Nutritious and delicious alternatives to rice

Because rice is high in carbohydrates, it should be accompanied by other foods.

Vegetables are high in fiber, vitamins, and other nutrients. Vegetables are made of carbohydrates, but at a much lower level than grains.

Eating foods that are lower in carbohydrates and higher in fiber can make meals more satisfying. For example, one-half cup of rice has 22 grams of carbohydrate. In contrast, one cup of squash only has 8 grams of carbohydrate.

Many foods can serve as substitutes for rice.

Examples include cauliflower, mushrooms, and eggplant. Quinoa contains the same amount of carbohydrates as rice, but it has more protein, and some types have more fiber.
Recipes for rice substitutes

A number of recipes are available for rice substitutes. Here are two examples:
1. Cauliflower" rice"



Pulse the florets of a cauliflower in the food processor. Then heat the cauliflower in a pan with oil and onions. Saut until the onions are golden brown and the cauliflower is soft for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Season to taste with salt, pepper, lemon juice, and herbs.

Full recipe from the food network.
2. Cilantro lime quinoa


 Canola oil
 Low-sodium chicken broth
 Juice of limes
 Fresh cilantro.

Saut the onion and garlic with oil in a skillet. Reduce the heat and stir in the quinoa. Stir quinoa and cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken broth and lime juice and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in more lime juice and add chopped cilantro.
