Is the growth of height stop at the age of 18th in girls. And if not then at what age the growth of height stops in girls and boys.

We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed.

I can not remember anything for long time I forget things. How I can improve my memory.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there, short term memory allows you to retain a small amount of information for a short amount of time. Think of it as a temporary workspace where information is consciously registered before being processed into long term memory. A lot of short term data is thrown straight out and is never committed to long term memory. But when we immediately throw out data we want to remember, it becomes a problem. So how can we retain the important stuff so that it sticks when we really want to remember something? in this article, we'll look at the causes of short term memory loss and how you can actively improve it through daily brain training, mnemonic devices, an ultimate memory improvement software and memory supplements. What causes short term memory loss? there are many things that disrupt your conscious processing of new memories. For example, if you can't absorb new information properly, then you have no hope of remembering it later. It's quite normal to forget things committed to recent memory, like what you had for breakfast or where you put your keys. This is a sign of aging, and its the biggest cause of short term memory loss. Your brain stops growing and starts shrinking in your 20s, and so you have fewer brain cells as you get older. While it doesn't usually affect your active memory (minutes), it does affect your recent memory (hours). However, other types of short term memory loss can be a cause of concern. It is associated with a whole host of diseases and disorders, including: alcohol abuse alzheimer's disease atlantic mussel food poisoning cerebral tumor cerebrovascular disease chronic fatigue syndrome chronic stress creutzfeldt jakob disease dementia depression drug abuse encephalitis head injury hiv/aids huntington's disease hypothyroidism lead poisoning marijuana abuse mental illness morgellon's disease normal pressure hydrocephalus sleep deprivation smoking stroke syphilis vitamin b12 deficiency if you feel your short term memory loss is not directly related to aging, you should check out the section on the wider causes of memory loss. However, depending on the underlying cause of your short term memory loss, there are some practical techniques you can use to help restore it. How to improve your short term memory most people compensate for short term memory loss by keeping notes and writing lists of important data. This may provide a quick solution but it doesn't challenge your brain to remember more - if anything, you're using your active memory even less. Automatically storing all your numbers in a cell phone or pda doesn't exactly help either. Instead, it's far better to: perform brain training learn memory techniques take a memory supplement all of these will optimize your brain to perform better naturally - without any artificial aids which will ultimately make it lazy. 1. Brain training it's important to keep your mind sharp as you age. Studies have found that seniors who do crosswords, puzzles, read, write and play card games delayed the onset of dementia. You only need do this kind of mental exercise twice a day in order to help prevent your mental powers from stagnating. The other good news is, brain training is fun! for memory improvement games, I recommend lumosity online brain training. It's free to begin with so you can get a taste of what's available, offering a wide range of simple and scientifically-proven memory games designed for all ages. By practicing daily, you can track your performance and monitor your level of improvement. It's a great resources for anyone serious about sharpening their working memory skills. 2. Memory improvement techniques take a look at some of these memory improvement techniques, designed to help you store more dry data and flex that memory muscle of yours. Exercise a - chunking studies show that most people can comfortably store 7 random digits. In order to make this a lot easier we naturally use a technique called chunking - separating the data into smaller blocks, such as hyphenating phone numbers. How to improve short term memory: chunkingsome people stretch this technique to remember their 16-digit credit card number, broken down into chunks of 4 digits. Can you do this? don't worry if not, most people have simply never tried. After all, we do have this mentality of writing things down instead of making the effort required to remember them. So next time you need to remember a phone number, try the good old method of chunking and committing it to memory first. Repetition and writing it down will help. But the aim of this exercise is to recall the number from memory later on in the day - and not have to refer to a cell phone or scrap of paper. Exercise b - mnemonic devices a mnemonic device is a verbal or visual memory improvement technique that makes it easier to remember a host of seemingly unrelated data. It works by evoking vivid and unusual mental imagery and emotions, thereby giving dry data meaning. Mnemonic devices this mnemonic device will remind you to call your angry gorilla-like boss today. Simple mnemonics can be as basic as a rhyme or acronym to create a reference point for the data you're trying to learn. For instance, my very easy method just sums up nine planets tells us the order of the planets in orbit is mercury, venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, uranus, neptune, pluto. Don't worry pluto, you are still a planet to me! we have all used simple mnemonics like this before - but there are many more clever mnemonic devices to enhance your memory. My favorite are the ones involving colorful visualizations (like a ton of garbage falling down on my head when the clock chimes six) reminding me to take the garbage out. Whether you are battling aging memory loss or super-charging a healthy student memory, mnemonic devices are an excellent habit to form. You will soon be able to quickly memorize long lists of items, tasks, or important facts and recall them from your short term memory with ease. These can also be translated to long term memories if you wish. These powerful techniques can be applied to everyday life and not only help you recall data more easily, it is also another great form of brain training. 3. Memory vitamins sometimes memory loss can be attributed to a nutritional deficiency in the diet. Experts recommend eating more nutrient-rich foods or specific vitamin supplements to restore balance. This provides the brain with all the nutrients it needs to function properly, including the way it forges and retrieves memories. If you are looking to improve your short term memory, you may find it helps to take a memory supplement, in addition to eating a healthy balanced diet. Using the latest memory research, I have compiled a list of the best memory vitamins. These include vitamins b, c, e and omega-3 fatty acids. I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.

I have a belly. How can I decrease it. Can you suggest me a regular diet. I wish to have a flat stomach.

MSc
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
I have a belly. How can I decrease it. Can you suggest me a regular diet. I wish to have a flat stomach.
If your belly is lowering your self-confidence and giving you sleepless nights, here are the tips to give you flatter and fitter tummy. 1. Add fiber to your diet constipation distends your belly, add veggies and fruits to your daily diet to relieve you of constipation, reduce intakes of refined cereals like maida, noodles, pasta and whole grains instead add dalia and oats. This would relieve you of constipation and bloat to give you a flat tummy. 2. Decrease sodium intake sodium retains water in the body and hence your belly swells up, reduce intake of junk food as it contains a lot of sodium. Stop adding extra salt to dishes, also packaged and processed food contains a lot of salts so better avoid it. 3. Increase potassium foods rich in potassium help you get rid of balancing sodium, fruits are very good source of potassium, adding them to their daily diet not only provides this nutrient but also increase the fiber content of your daily intake 4. Avoid sugar alcohols we do not completely digest these low-calorie sweeteners usually found in flavoured low-calorie drinks, diabetic and sugar-free foods. Bacteria in a large intestine ferment during gas and distension so check food labels and avoid sorbitol, xylitol and lacitol. 5. Increase liquids drinking plenty of liquids helps flush out toxins from the body. Keep yourself hydrated with at least 8 glasses of water, also include lassi, coconut, water, lemon water in your daily routine. Make sure to include homemade soups only, as packaged soups are not that nutritious and contain added sodium in them. 6. Carbonated beverages and alcohol these give you extended bellies and your dream of flat tummy falls flat. Alcohol gives you empty calories with zero nutrition. 7. Probiotic curds include low fat curd in your diet regime as it contains live bacteria which tame bloating by increasing intestinal motility. 8. Method of cooking no doubt salads and sprouts are good for our health but if experience distension with them then saute, blanch or steam them also fried foods are best to be avoided not only because of their high-calorie content but also because frying leads to changes in oil composition which may result in bloating. 9. Avoid chewing gums and candies while chewing them air enters our digestive system, giving us feeling of bloating, also candies are zero in nutrition but contain loads of calories. Also, eat slowly as gulping down increases air passage to the digestive system 10. Individual tolerances some individuals are more intolerant to certain foods like radish, capsicum, tea, cauliflower etc, so with your own personal experience omit them from your diet.

The condition is controllable most of the times and sometimes fully curable. For further advice consult me privately as I need to ask you some personal questions.

I'm not able to concentrate and get distracted very easily and I feel very bored. What should I do?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly.

No role just take your medicines regularly, and keep uric acid below 6 hi gout is a very severe disease, it affects joints, heart and kidneys. Most people forget that uric acid which deposits in joints can deposit in heart and kidneys too. So basically besides most painful joints it can kill also. Also as disease progresses the arthritis spreads and can have a devastating effect (google gouty arthritis, gouty top, gouty joint, gouty erosions images). The treatment is very simple, but to be taken continuously. Also it is a widespread misconception that you should stop dals. Dals are very healthy source of protein, and they need not be stopped in gout. Gout is a very severe form of arthritis. It has acute and chronic phase. In acute phase requires immediate management in the form of certain drugs. Chronic phase requires treatment to prevent attacks and later lower uric acid. Most doctors treat intermittently, which is why it spreads, you should treat it continuously like diabetes or hypertension. The concept is simple keep uric acid below 6 or in severe cases 5. It can be achieved in most patients by a single tablet. Bringing uric acid from 10 to 7 is of no use because uric acid will keep on depositing as long it is above 6 attacks go gout can be treated with any form of therapy. But chronic gout requires a simple tablet in allopathy (like a single tablet in patients having high blood pressure), to prevent further attacks and prevent heart and kidney disease. No drug in ayurveda can do that.

To gain muscle and as well as remain lean you have to eat clean and do heavy weight training for 3 times a week and cardio 3 times a week. Food should comprise of optimum 1st class proteins, minimum starches, healthy fats lots of vegetables and fruits and drink enough water. Doesn't mean if you take whey protein you will become lean and gain muscle. Your rest of the diet has to be perfect along with the exercise. Whey protein is a wonderful supplement to be taken post training but it will work well only when your rest of the diet is perfect.

Dear lybrate user. Don't worry. You just smoked 15 times. Of course, there is bad effects on your lungs. But the moment you stopped smoking, your body started the repair process. I can say, the bad effects will be nullified within a span of around two weeks. Practice physical exercise. Take care.
