Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome - Symptoms And Treatment

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Udaipur
Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome - Symptoms And Treatment

Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome is the name given to the symptoms seen in you if you consume heavy doses of alcohol frequently and then suddenly quit or reduce your alcohol intake considerably. These symptoms may surface anytime between six hours to a few days after you last drank.

Common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome:

All these symptoms may worsen over a few days and may even last till a few weeks.

What is the root cause?

Alcohol arouses your nervous system. In case you are a heavy drinker, your body gradually gets dependent on alcohol, and cannot adapt too easily to the lack of alcohol after you have abruptly quit. This is the root cause of Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome (AWS).

Who is at risk?

You are at the maximum risk of AWS if you are an alcohol addict, or you cannot gradually cut down on its intake.

How do doctors diagnose AWS?

Usually, doctors will search for a few symptoms in you, like irregular heart rate, dehydration, fever, and tremors or minor fits. A toxicology screen also helps your doctor finding out the levels of alcohol in your body.

How is AWS treated?

Treatment depends on the severity of the symptoms. Usually are:

1. Home Care - Mild symptoms of AWS can be treated at your home. You need to go for your regular routine checkups and tests. You may also have to go to rehabilitation programs for recovering alcoholics.

2. Hospitalization - If your symptoms are more severe, you may have to be treated in a hospital, where you will be monitored and kept on a fluid diet to help prevent dehydration.

3. Medications - You can also be treated with sedatives.

Do you recover fully?

Usually, chances are that you will fully recover from AWS. If you quit drinking, take your medicines on time, and lead a healthy life thereafter. However, sleep disturbances and fatigue may persist. But, if you have severe symptoms of AWS, you should seek medical care as soon as possible to prevent any further fatal complications. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

If this is the first episode of urine infection, then you don't need to worry much, in the form of protection, etc. If its happening repeatedly, you need evaluation in the form of partner evaluation (whether he is the source), presence of constipation, diabetes, etc. In that case you need to take care of what is called" post-coital prophylaxis" that is care after sexual intercourse, like local wash, urination, and antibiotics in severe cases.

The causes, symptoms and Homeopathic treatment for Male Infertility

Namaskar main Mumbai se Dr Shirish C Malde. Aaj aapko male infertility yaani purusho mein hone wali baanjhpan ki samasya ke baare mein aapko kuch batana Chahoonga.

Aksar Hamare samaj mein pehle se hi ek aisa ravaiya raha hai ki Jab bache bache Paida nahi hote Kisi couple ke to hamesha hi istri ki taraf ungli uthaayi jaati hai. Uski treatment, investigation saare istri k hi karaye jaate hai. Kai case me baccha nahi hone k kaaran purish dusri shaadi bhi kr leta hai. Or kabhi kabhi aise case me samasya jyo ki tyo rhti hai. Kyunki aise case me samasya istri me ni lekin kabhi kabhi purusho mein bhi hoti hai. Ye samasya ko purusho ki wajah se Hone Wale baanjhpan ya male infertility Kaha Jata Hai. Iski mukhya teen Wajah hoti hai. Ya Sambhog ke dauran Purush Apna veerya istri ke Sharir Mein barabar aaropan nahi kar pata hai.

Ya kabhi kabhi Purush ke shukra jantu me yaani veerya mein kuch kharaabu hoti hai, Jis wajah se wo Baap Nahi main samarth nahi hota toh sambhog mein agar koi takleef hai Jaise ling Main barabar Khadapan nahi aata hai ya veerya patan bahut hi jaldi ho jata hai aise cases Mein Hum Pehle bhi dekh chuke hain ki kya treatment leni chahiye. Uske liye aap dusra video Mera dekh sakte hain. Abhi hum jo hum Dekhenge Ki veerya Mein jo Kami hai ya pareshani Nazar Aati Hai to usse Kaise Hal Kiya jata hai. Treatment Mein sabse phle Pehle pursho ki poori Jaanch hoti hai. Uske biolangik abhiavavya ang hai uski tapaas hoti hai. Agar andkosh ka sahi se Vikas nahi hua hai toh kyu nahi Hua Hai Iski Bhi jaanch ki jati hai.

Kuch cases mein hormones ki bhi investigation Hona zaroori hai aur sab se mahatvapoorna Veerya ka laboratory testing karna. Aap Ko Yeh jaankar hairaani Hogi ki striyo mein bahut si testing Ki Zaroorat hoti hai aur Akshar Kafi test mein hospitalization bhi zaroori Hota Hai. Jab ki purusho mein aisa nahi hai. Purusho mein takreeban 80 percent investigation semen analysis yani Veerya ki tapaas se ho jati hai aur wahi par khatam ho jati hai. Agar Purush jo veerya dene Jata Hai laboratory me tab bhi usse kuch Baatein Dhyan mein rakhni chahiye. Kai baar pressure ki wajah se matlab maansik pressure ki wajah se woh laboratory Mein Dhatu nahi de pata hai. Toh aise case Mein Hume usse sahi dhngse guidance Dena zaroori hai. Jab wo apna sample deta hai wo laboratory Mein To Shaam ko jab report Uske Haath Mein Aati Hai, Tab us report mein kuch do teen cheez hoti hai Sabse pehle hai shukranu ki sankhya aur doosri sukranu ki gatishilta Kaisi hoti hai. Ye dono hi cheeze bde maine rakhti hai, prusho ki unki jo capacity hai, fertility capacity Woh in cheezo ka dhyaan rakhti hai. 2 sperm count jo hai World Health Organisation ke manual ke hisab se 20 million yani 2 crore per ml of semen Hona zaroori hai. Agar count is se kam hai Toh us Purush ko aur kuch test ki shayad jarurat pad sakti hai Kyunki come Count me baccha karna Mushkil Hota Hai aur dusra hota hai shukranu ki gatishilta.

Takriban 50 pratishat sukranu ki jo gatishilta hai vo acchi hone chahiye Aur Yeh forward progressing hone chahiye. Agar gatishilta kaam hai aur mrit shukranu jyada hai ya bilkul movement nahi karne wale sukranu jyada hai Toh aise case maybe kuch aur tapaas Ki Zaroorat hoti hai aur Jaise Karan Milte Hain us hisaab se treatment Hona zaroori hai. Physical examination Mein Ek Aur baat dhyaan ki Jati Hai Wo hoti hai varicocele. Kuch purusho ki jo shukranalikaaye hoti hai wahan or rakt purotak krne wali jo nalikaaye hoti hai, rakt vahini hoti hai wo kabhi kabhi fool jaati hai. Jis wajah se andkosh Ke Aas Paas ka tapman Bad jata hai aur wahan par Bhi sukranu ki sankhya Mein ya gatishilta mein kami Aati Hai aur Aisa kuch paya jata hai to uska Doppler test Kiya jata hai Aur Us hisab Se Purush ko kabhi kabhi Ek chota sa surgery karna padta hai Jahan Par fooli hui nase Hai Woh bandhi Jati Hai Taki Jo badne wala temperature Woh normal Rahe. Is vericocele operation ke baad takriban 50 pratishat Purusho mr count me vridhi aur gatishilta may bhi vriddhi Aati Hai. Kabhi kabhi Aise Bhi cases aate hai jaha par sukranu Sabhi mrit Hote Hain ya kabhi kabhi Aise Bhi cases hote hain Jahan veerya me shukranu ki sankhya 0 hoti hai. Isse azoospermia Kehte Hai. Azoospermia do Tarah Ke Hote Hai medical azoospermia aur Surgicals azoospermia.

Surgical azoospermia me shukranu ka jo pathway hai woh Kahi na Kahi block Hota Hai Jis Se Shukranu andkosh me taiyar Hote Hai Lekin bahar nikal nahi paate hain. Aur aise kaise Mein Ek Choti si surgery operation hoti hai Jis Se Ek bypass banaya jata hai jaha par rukawat ho aur Is Tarah Se Rasta open kia jata hai jisse shukranu Bahar Aa Jaye Aisa treatment Kiya jata hai. Dusri jo samasya Hoti Hai medical azoospermia Jis me sukranu Sharir Mein Banta Hi Nahi Hai aur Issi wajhe se Woh Bahar Nahi Aate Hain Kyon Ki Banti Nahi Hai. To Aise case me bhi us couple ko doctor ko mil kar ke is Samay aur aage kya karna chahiye uski Jankari leni chahiye.

Aajkal technique or facility Itni achi ho rahi hai ki aise Mein Logon Ko Mandir ja kar ke Mannat Hai Karna 1 apne aap Mein Shraddha ka Vishay hai lekin uske saath mein hai medically bhi unhone poore test Karke kaaran kya hai bachcha nahi karne ki iska test karna chahiye aur Khaas Karke purusho ko Apna ego side mein rakh Kar Ke is test ko Lekar ke aage badhne chahiye Kyuki purusho ki jo samasya hoti hai vo kai baar bahut hi kam kharch Main Aur bahut hi jaldi sulajh Jati Hai. Aur Aisa Na Ho ki Purush ki samasya ke liye bahut Baar stri ko test or investigation ke liye Jana pad raha hai aur isliye gents couple ko bachcha nahi theherta Hai shadi ke 1 saal paschaat bhi normal Sambhog hone ke bawjud bhi bacha nahi theherta hai toh unko sabse Pehle Purush Ka tapass hona chahiye.

Agar koi problem hai to usse Jaldi Hi clear kar sakte hain. Uske bawjud bhi bachcha nahi theherta Hai Toh Phir Stri ka tapass karne chahiye. Yahi Sahi protocol Hoga aur couple ko isme bahut hi jaldi safalta prapt Hogi. Is topic par aap kuch aur Jana chahte hain toh aap mujhse Sampark kar sakte hain Ye ek mobile mein app bhi hai aur platform par available hai ya phir website par aap visit Karke aap aur Jankari de sakte hai aur mujhse baat cheet kar sakte hai. Dhanyawad.

Sexual Arousal disorder- Grouped as frigidity in women and impotence in male. Impotence now known as erectile dysfunction is characterised by the difficulty to maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity.

Orgasm disorder- Is a delay or absence of orgasm following the normal sexual excitement phase. It occurs in both male and female.

Sexual pain disorder- It mostly affects the women, known as Dysparuinia known as painful intercourse caused due to insufficient lubrication.

Some common symptoms:
In men are:
The absence of ejaculation.
Inability to maintain time of ejaculation.

Hello All, I am 25 year, I got married 5 month before and would like to know about the precaution. We both are planning to take Precaution as we are not ready for child now.

Depo-Provera injection is quiet ok for most women with 99% success rate and a single dose provides contraception for 12-14 weeks.. But it’s not recommended for those who have unexplained vaginal bleeding,Liver disease,Breast cancer and Blood clots .But continuous usage of this injection may have few side effects also like Irregular menstrual periods, or no periods at all,Headaches ,Nervousness,Depression, Dizziness,, Changes in appetite,Weight gain,Unwanted facial and body hair,Hair loss and Loss of bone mineral density.Change in the menstrual cycle is the most common side effect. You may have irregular bleeding or spotting. After a year of use, about 50% of women will stop getting their periods. Their periods usually return when they no longer get the shots.Long-term use of Depo-Provera may lead to loss of bone mineral density, which makes osteoporosis more likely. This risk is greater if you've taken the shot for longer than 2 years, especially if osteoporosis runs in your family, you drink a lot, you smoke, or you have other risk factors for the condition. But most importantly You can become pregnant as soon as 3 to 4 months after your last shot. But it takes some women up to a year or 2 to conceive after they stop using this type of birth control. This time frame seems unrelated to how long you used the shot. Taking regular pill is a good option than this injection but again some women complain of weight gain with pills also.So the best contraceptive is CONDOMS and a knowledge of safe periods in which you can have relations without a condom without fear of pregnancy and women health will remain intact.Consult me

There is no cure for herpes simplex. The good news is that sores often clear without treatment. Many people choose to treat herpes simplex because treatment can relieve symptoms and shorten an outbreak. Most people are treated with an antiviral medicine. An antiviral cream or ointment can relieve the burning, itching, or tingling. An antiviral medicine that is oral (pills) or intravenous (shot) can shorten an outbreak of herpes. Prescription antiviral medicines approved for the treatment of both types of herpes simplex include: Acyclovir Famciclovir Valacyclovir

Ayurveda ---A pioneer help for depressive people

General emotional dejection and withdrawal; sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason, may be seen as a diagnosis of depression. Other symptoms may include feelings of hopelessness, and or pessimism, feeling of guilt, irritability, and restlessness and loss of appetite. One foremost or cardinal sign of depression is a loss of interest in the objects or people previously liked and appreciated by the individual. With the blind race about possession of more and more resources, the rate of depression is growing high. A throat cut competitive environment at social and professional level is another reason behind stress anxiety and depression.

Though it's a truth that depression occurs because of arbitrary thought process, and counselling plays an important role in it, medicines are also often required. Ayurveda prescribes the wonderful solution in this regard.

  • 1oleation and fomentation the therapies normally known as snehan and Sweden in Ayurveda. In this, whole body massage with medicated oil is done. After that whole body fomentation is performed. The massage relaxes the strained muscles. It removes fatigue and stiffness.
  • 2 a full course of snehan, Sweden, mridu vaman and mental health promoters after that provides easy, early and long lasting relief from the annoying pain of stress and depression. The patient feels rejuvenated and comes out of low mood and helplessness.

Hi I am 28 years old. I am 14 weeks pregnant now. I have been diagnosed with Gestational diabetes and I am on medication with glycomet. I hav been closely monitoring my blood glucose level and it is always been under the normal range during fasting between 87-102 mg/dl. However, the post breakfast range (after 2 hours) keeps fluctuating between 141-157 mg/dl. My last post breakfast range was 145 mg/dl. My Doc has asked me to take insulin shots. My first question, is it necessary to take insulin for these ranges. I have been doing walkings and adapted to lifestyle changes and following my diet strictly. Is it safe to consume insulin? Would it affect my baby?

The fasting range for pregnancy should be ideally less than 92mg% and the 2 hours post meal should be less than 153mg%. Try to maintain this range with glycomet, diet and exercise. You may even consider increasing the dose of glycomet. Insulin is only for uncontrollable conditions. If the sugars are under control then it won't have any negative impact on the baby. Both glycomet and insulin are very safe in pregnancy.

10 Myths That Are Holding Obese People Back!

Nutrition - Management of Weight & Lifestyle Related Disorders
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
10 Myths That Are Holding Obese People Back!

1. Exercise can make you skinny

Not true! If you don't curb your intake, exercise can actually make you more efficient and cause more fat deposition. Exercise is important for maintaining health and strength, but just don't believe the myth that you can lose fat by exercising.

(calories in) - (calories out) = (stable weight)

2. Eating less fat causes weight loss

Another common myth is that low-fat diet causes weight loss. Over 60% of the population is overweight, and about one fifth of the entire population is either diabetic or pre-diabetic! Low-fat diets don't lower body fat.

3. Low thyroid causes weight gain

People who still believe that they are overweight because of a 'thyroid problem', should reconsider that notion. Multiple studies on the effects of thyroid on weight have failed to find a connection and yet the myth persists. There are many medical doctors and other practitioners that perpetuate this myth, telling people, 'It's not your fault, it's your thyroid'. They are then given thyroid hormones to take, but don't lose weight.

4. Diet pills help you lose weight

All of the studies done on diet pills show a short-term loss of weight with a long-term gain. Moreover, they cause brain dysfunction. Why are they still used? Because of public demand. People are trying to appear to be healthy with drugs that are actually harming their health. Diet pills, whether over-the-counter or prescription are not the answer to being overweight.

5. High-nutrient-and-low-calorie foods are expensive!

Of course, ounce-for-ounce you will find that organic foods cost more than those smothered in pesticides, and prepared foods seem to cost less than their unadulterated counterparts, but this isn't the whole picture. Eating smaller amounts of grass fed meat, or wild caught fish maybe twice per week, and having organic fruit and vegetables instead of packaged snacks is actually less expensive. People who are eating nutritious foods don't eat when they aren't hungry, whereas snack foods are eaten for taste and hunger doesn't matter. That's why people get fat on snack foods. Moreover, preparing the food in your home will save lots of money over going to restaurants.

6. Skipping a meal per day can help you lose weight and improve your health

In fact, eating three meals a day may actually help to stave off obesity! Studies show that skipping meals slows down metabolism as the body's tries to reserve its energy stores for daily function. And skipping meals increases the likelihood of overeating or even binge eating later in the day.

7: Body fat is bad for you

Actually, without body fat, your organs would not function properly, your bones would break easier, you would have impaired cognitive ability, and you would be putting yourself at risk for a heart attack. Body fat itself is not bad for you. How much of it, what type, and where a person's fat is stored on their body makes a difference.The Truth About Your Weight and Your Health, fat storage on the hips and thighs is associated with a lower risk of heart disease and Type II Diabetes in both men and women.

8: Being fat is worse for your health than being thin

Here's the biggest shocker, and a fact that sadly goes unnoticed; the risk of death from a very low BMI is greater than for someone at a high BMI! Skinny people die as a result of their weight than fat people do.

Warning, being as thin as this airbrushed model's image may be hazardous to your health."

9: Genetic makeup will not allow an Individual to be lean and fit

Obesity tends to run in families. A genetic cause is indicated; though it must be remembered that family members share not only genes, but also their diet and lifestyle habits. Individuals cannot change their genes, but they can change what they eat and how active they are. Even individuals who are genetically predisposed to obesity need not become obese, they can manage to lose weight and keep it off.

10: Weight gain in women over time is healthy and part of a natural aging process.

Weight gain of more than 20 pounds is not a normal part of the maturation process. It may actually increase a woman's risk of an obesity related disease.

Digestion - Is There A Way Exercise Can Help You?

MD - Medicine, MRCP - Gastroenterology, MBBS
Gastroenterologist, Chandigarh
Digestion - Is There A Way Exercise Can Help You?

Exercise can benefit your digestive system. The benefit, however, depends upon your time and type of exercise. When you exercise, your body slows down the process of digestion. Maximum supply of blood is directed towards the muscles and lungs. Thus it is to be kept in mind that you shouldn't exercise after having heavy meals. You may suffer from heartburn or vomiting if you take heavy meals before exercising. However, if you exercise empty stomach, you can see health benefits. Your digestion time must not be the same as your time for exercise.

There are several relaxation techniques, physical activities and exercises to help absorption of essential nutrients. Exercise can help your digestive system in the following ways:

  1. Boosts Blood Circulation: Exercise improves the flow of blood through our entire body. Thus the supply of blood to the digestive systems is also improved. The digestive system starts functioning better. With regular exercising, the digestive system starts functioning faster. An individual gets rid of gastric problems like gas, heartburn, constipation and stomach cramps.
  2. Digestive Routine: It is important that you exercise at the right time. Proper exercising before having meals is a very healthy habit. It will encourage you to develop a healthy and effective digestive routine.
  3. Yoga for Digestion: It is a low-energy exercise. It helps in strengthening of the stomach muscle and facilitates digestion.

Precautions: One should keep in mind a number of things while exercising for a healthy digestive system. You must fix up a proper schedule for exercising. You can't take larger and heavier meals, rich in proteins and fats, just before exercising. Drink adequate amount of water after exercising as it causes dehydration. Patients who suffer from frequent attacks of diarrhea should avoid caffeine intake while exercising or later.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
