Body Dysmorphic Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of psychiatric disorder. It is when you cannot think about one or more defects or flaws in your appearance. These flaws are usually very minor and sometimes even unnoticeable.  This is actually a much more serious disorder than many other people may think. This is because people with body dysmorphic disease may avoid many situations and also suffer from severe anxiety or shame. Here is everything you need to know about body dysmorphic disease.

Causes
Just like other psychiatric disorders, there is no known cause of body dysmorphic disease. However, there are a lot of factors, which increases your risk of developing it which include:

1. Brain disorders: Many people with abnormal brain chemistry disorders suffer from body dysmorphic disease. 
2. Genes: People whose blood relatives have this disease or have obsessive compulsive disorder are more likely to develop this disorder as well. 
3. Environment: Cultural and social influences are a major cause of body dysmorphic disorder as well.

Symptoms
There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include: 

1. Having a preoccupation with a flaw in the body, which is very minor or perhaps even unnoticeable.
2. Beliefs that people are mocking you in relation to your flaw.
3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

Treatments
There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.
1.   Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is when a therapist tries to stop you from thinking about the flaw that you have been focusing on way too much. 
2.   SSRI: SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They are given in cases, where body dysmorphic disorder is caused by problems related to the brain chemical serotonin. 
3.   Hospitalization: This is a severe measure, but may need to be taken if you are in danger of harming somebody or you cannot perform daily activities.

My name prasad I studying Chartered accounts course, recently my girl friend avoided me, she can't talk to me, but still can't get over it, day by day I'm going into depression. I think too much her, I don't sleep good ,I think too much and it just keep getting worse and worse. I couldn't even leave my room because I'm tried of crying. Number of times number of days I sit alone in complete darkness, just cry and then walk out like nothing even happened. Locked with in the walls of my own mind unable to escape reaching out for help that is not there my demons are inside no one can save me from myself. I have some times how hard I try to not cry but tears drop still fall. I have seen a world that's hard I'll have compassion in my heart, for I have known some pain. Nobody knows the thoughts that go through my head. When I am sad. I live in horrible world. I should be sleeping but my thoughts are wide awake. I always thought s of suicide because I fell alone in world because I depended too much her. I think a lot all the times actually in the middle of night. There was ON DOUBT in my mind a done deal because I needed to end my shitty life. I think suicide is a permanent solution to my temporary problem because I can't handle my future. I can't live without her. She is nice girl and intelligent. She is very very good girl. I still can't forget my past.

Hi lybrate-user, im sure she is a nice girl but yes you can live without her. People live without the most dearest people in thier lives too. Like their father, mother etc. You need to learn coping skills- time is the biggest healer. How can your suicide solve the problems and what about your loved ones. Why are you being so selfish? Ofcourse you can handle your life and future. No one but we control our lives. Its just about will power. Consult with me for counseling and therapy. You are undergoing depression right now.

Dear lybrate-user. If you use stress relief tablets along with ganja, alcohol and cigarettes, the tablets will not work as desired. Secondly ganja and alcohol always worsen the stress situation and resultant reaction. I suggest you to quit ganja, alcohol and cigarette. Please. Take care.

Diet and workouts go a long way in helping you gain strength to gain weight, you must eat more calories than you burn. When you gain weight, some will be fat and some will be muscle. To gain muscle, you must eat protein. To boost the ratio of muscle to fat gain, you must exercise. To gain muscle and strength, you must engage in resistance exercise. To improve bodyfat percentage and gain weight, you must cycle through phases of gaining muscle and losing fat. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

How to talk to youngsters who go into depression due to breakup of a relationship Or not able to cope with day to day pressure.

How to talk to youngsters who go into depression due to breakup of a relationship
Or not able to cope with day to day...
They need to be told that these are trial relationships and not to take them too seriously. They become too possessive and then when it becomes too stifling for the other person who will eventually want out, the losing partner dispairs. They need to learn lessons from every relationship to take int the future. If they do not learn, they will tend to repeat the same mistakes. They must be taught how to deal with a failed relationship especially about their feelings and some left over bad experiences. If they do not do this, they will carry baggage and affect the next relationship. Sometimes, you can help them identify if they are actually favoring the parent of the opposite sex when choosing a person and see how that ties up with unresolved sexual identity and resolve the same. Then the usual about not carrying bad experiences and affecting their own lives, socializing more, not taking anything too personally, not bad-mouthing the other person after the breakup, not to jump into another relationship too soon after the breakup, etc.

Hi doctors. I am 26 years old. I am facing a serious issue, which is related with my behaviour. I imagine things a lot and because of that I have inculcated a habit of talking to myself, I find it very difficult to control my emotions and I talk loudly which means that I actually talk to myself loudly. This habit has become so weird that people have actually seen me talking on road with myself and even at work, which is really embarassing. I accept that I don't have to many friends, and I really don't know y I don't have to many friends, most of the time I feel like staying alone, with a fear that what if I am sitting with my friends and they saw me talking to myself, will further spoil my image, is being alone, not having to many friends, is that the root cause of the problem? I really don't know, even when I am at work, I tend to imagine a lot and the problem is that my imagination has got no control, it is all situational, I at times feel that I am literally becoming mad but I have actually scene people with similar behaviour and that's why I didn't feel like consulting a doctor earlier and because of that I felt that it's all normal but now the problem is becoming severe, it has become so severe that most of the times I feel disconnected with real world and most of the time engrossed in imaginative world, before people could actually start considering me mad, I want somebody to help please. Is there a treatment for this? I also want to mention that my mom also have this habit, could it be hereditary or something else, please help? help would be highly appreciated! regards,

For your condition I would suggest you to consult a psychologist or psychiatrist immediately. What you are going through is understood, but why have you never taken any help. Kindly consult a professional as your problem can be solved with proper therapy and treatment. Stop living in imaginary world by going out and meeting people and living in the real world. The cause for this may be your hidden anxiety about something, but this needs to be dealt with immediately. Get help.

Is consuming beer good for health, if at all its good then alcoholic beer or non alcoholic we have consume?

Is consuming beer good for health, if at all its good then alcoholic beer or non alcoholic we have consume?
There is no black or white, good or bad in the food/drinks we consume. We are so obsessed by trying to incorporate good in our lifestyle. Beer is a good diuretic, so it may help in flushing out in urine infections and kidney stones but obviously it is an insult to liver and reduces the ph of our system making it more acidic. Though much less than the hard liquor. Drink beer for'high" and not for health:) do.

How can I increase my memory power?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory is a combination understanding, storage and recollection. If you are able to understand properly and store successfully and recollect perfectly, you said to have good memory. Many cannot do this. You should practice keeping your brain always working with the help of exercise, games, mind puzzle games and number games. Leafy vegetables and fruits are beneficial to keep your brain active. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, you can try these- 1. Getting restful and uninterrupted night-time sleep (7-8 hours) 2. Don't over sleep (more than 8 hours) 3. Wear a sunscreen under the eyes when stepping out in the sun. 4. Use a pair of sunglasses and a concealer, if required. 5. Get iron and protein rich diet. 6. If blood test indicates iron deficiency take iron suppliments with the advise of your general physician. 7. Do destressing exercises like mindfulness meditation or yoga. I hope this helps you.
