Dear lybrate-user- you definitely need to be alert as you lost your mother to breast cancer. The sebaceous cyst has no connection with breast cancer. Please learn how to do a breast self-examination, and do it (after your period) -EVERY MONTH. In case you find a breast lump please follow it up with a surgeon. Please get a bilateral mammogram done every year. That should be fine to monitor your breast health.

Hi, do not fall prey for'fair skin only beauty' concept, believe in your inner personality and that give charm to you. For glowing skin naturally apply paste of besan powder mixed with little sandal powder daily for 10 to 15 mins. Weekly twice use tomatoes or potatoes or papaya pulped mixed with same paste. Find a glowing skin in a week.

Hello. You should describe your complaints in detail. Like how much blood is lost, is it drops or splash, painfull or painless etc. It can be anal fissure or piles. To rule out that you require evaluation by a surgeon. Meanwhile avoid spicy food, hotel food. Do sitz bath and if motion is hard then take some laxative. Thanks. For further queries kindly consult online.

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 17 years so your number will not increase much now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Bariatric Surgery - A Boon For People Suffering From Obesity!

Bariatric Surgery - A Boon For People Suffering From Obesity!

Bariatric Surgery is a life-saving surgery and not a cosmetic surgery as it generally is regarded. In fact, it is a gastrointestinal surgery to improve, prevent and/or treat obesity which may be life threatening. This surgery is done by laparoscopy, does not involve removal of fat from the body and the weight loss after surgery is gradual i.e. 4-5kg per month and reaches a stable level after 1-2 years of surgery. Bariatric surgery is known to be the most effective and long lasting treatment for morbid obesity and many related conditions, but now mounting evidence suggests it may be among the most effective treatments for metabolic diseases and conditions including type-2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obstructive sleep apnea.

Diabetes is a gnawing problem that affects millions throughout the world. It is a disorder that if overlooked can lead to serious diseases; cardiovascular ailments, problems related to vision, kidney problems and many more. While medication tries to regulate your blood sugar levels, it is not always unfailing. Medication along with changes in your diet and lifestyle can still not improve your condition in certain cases. At times it is hard to increase the insulin production in a person's body even after administering medicines solely known for their efficacy. Such kind of diabetic patients can therefore benefit from a Bariatric surgery.

What is a Bariatric surgery?

Bariatric surgery doesn't refer to a single operative method. It involves a host of surgical procedures conducted on a person to rid him or her of obesity. Obesity in combination with diabetes can make a person's life miserable. The treatment of one can come in the way of curing the other. A diabetic patient who also suffers from obesity usually finds it hard to lose weight in spite of exercising or being on diet. Surgery comes to their rescue. This kind of surgery should be fallen back upon as the lender of last resort that is to say when other solutions have not helped. Bariatric surgery is always performed under skilled supervision. It might include reduction of the size of your stomach, removal of a portion of the stomach, or even gastric bypass surgery.

How does Bariatric surgery help reduce Diabetes?

Diabetes can be of three basic kinds;

  • Type 1 diabetes in which the body produces no amount of insulin.
  • Type 2 diabetes in which the body produces an insufficient amount of insulin or Gestational diabetes that pregnant women tend to contract.

Bariatric surgery proves to be very advantageous for patients of Type 2 diabetes:

  1. Surgery lowers blood sugar levels considerably. Research shows people with acute diabetes made huge improvements after having undergone a Bariatric surgery. Their blood sugar levels dropped by a noticeable percentage and they felt healthier. Reduced blood sugar is an almost immediate effect in some while for others it does take some time.
  2. Bariatric surgery exercises a control over cholesterol, blood pressure and triglyceride levels.
  3. The impressive benefits of this operation for a Type 2 diabetes patient are not superficial or temporary. If the patient adheres to the lifestyle prescribed by a doctor, takes medication regularly and follows the basics of post- operative care he or she is likely to remain beyond the ambit of this metabolic disorder.
  4. It successfully takes care of ailments resulting from diabetes.
  5. Bariatric surgery can eliminate the need for medication or it can reduce the dosage of medicines you take.

Looks like a protruding internal pile or hemorrhoid from the anus which is reducible at present. Ensure that your stools are soft because friction with hard stools may cause bleeding in it. Eat a lot of fiber and salads.

Dear, take 15 to 20 leaves of neem and make its paste with water. Apply this paste on where the fungal infection occurs twice in a week. Apply this paste for 15 minutes then rinse off. After removing this paste apply coconut oil on that area. You do not mention the area of fungal infection. So keep the area moisture free and make it dry.

Dear Sir Your wife's test report are near normal. Please continue Tab. Thyronorm 25 mcg as suggested by your doctor. As it is deficiency of hormone so thyroxine is necessary to keep it in balance. Don't worry at all as it doesn't have any side effects. But please do check Thyroid profile once in 3 month to titrate your medicine.
