Why Is The DEXA Scan Important For Osteoporosis Patients

Why Is The DEXA Scan Important For Osteoporosis Patients

Osteoporosis is a disease that affects the bones of its sufferers. This is most commonly found in women, especially in those who are close to, or going through, menopause. Hormonal changes around this period in a woman's life usually lead to various changes in her body. One of these changes includes loss of bone tissue which can leave the patient with brittle and weak bones, a condition that is also known as osteoporosis. This condition literally imbibes the word porous, meaning hollow bones. It is born from an acute deficiency of calcium and Vitamin D. The DEXA Scan or bone density test, also known as the Dual Energy X Ray Absorptiometry Scan, is one of the most effective tests that can help you in detecting this kind of damage or thinning bones. Here's why.

  • Fractures: The DEXA Scan is an important one because it sends low energy beams to areas like your joints and tissues to show how susceptible you are to fractures. It does so by measuring the strength of the tissues as well as the bones to see how brittle they may be. 
  • Other Ailments: Measuring the thinning of your bones can also point to the presence of other ailments that may have gone unnoticed or undetected, earlier. These can include kidney disease, hyperparathyroidism which happens due to overactive secretions of the said gland, as well as liver disease due a malfunctioning liver, intestinal disease and various disorders in the intestinal tract, and a serious Vitamin D deficiency. With this scan, you can get an insight into the other parts of the body affected by the bone density, and whether or not they are functioning properly. 
  • Estrogen: Simply checking the estrogen levels cannot ascertain whether or not you have osteoporosis, as a high estrogen level can be credited to a particularly heavy period cycle. It does not show the bone health the way a DEXA Scan does. 
  • Easy and Standardised: This method of scanning usually happens with the help of a mounted X ray machine type, hand held gadget which can be extended to conduct the scan. This is an easy and standardised method that releases low levels of radiation which also makes it a healthier option.
  • Bone Density Scores: The T Scores and Z scores point towards the bone density and help in diagnosing the condition efficiently. With a systematic scoring system, it is a sure shot test for osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a serious condition. The first step in treating the same is to get a detailed scan like the DEXA scan done, so as to test the extent of the bone thinning to ensure that proper and timely treatment takes place.

Unsafe sex is one of the major causes of abortion, even though it is legal under a number of circumstances in most countries. The term miscarriage is used to denote spontaneous termination of pregnancy before a fetus develops. In other words, miscarriage is denoted as spontaneous abortion in medical terms.

What are the causes of abortion?

I am a 28 year old mother & having a 3 year old daughter. From past few days I have been experiencing pain in my breast area around the nipple. please tell me what should I do?

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help.

Infertility Causes and Treatments

Not being able to conceive a child can be one of the biggest problems for a woman. Infertility also includes not being able to carry a baby full term. Infertility can have a single cause or can be the result of a combination of factors. In most cases, infertility can be treated but in order to do this, it is essential to first understand the underlying cause of infertility.

Let's take a look at some of the things that could be keeping you from getting pregnant:

  • Damaged Fallopian Tubes: Pelvic inflammatory disease can cause inflammation in the fallopian tubes and damage or block them. It can also be the result of a sexually transmitted disease. A blocked fallopian tube will not allow the egg to reach the uterus from the ovaries and hence does not allow you to get pregnant.
  • Hormones: Hormonal changes can prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs and can also thicken the lining of the uterus. Excessive stress and a sudden change in weight can disrupt the production of the follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone leading to irregular or absent periods.
  • Cervical and Uterine Trouble: This includes abnormalities like fibroids and polyps in the uterus and abnormally shaped uterus. These fibroids could block the fallopian tubes or interfere with the implantation of the fertilized egg.
  • Endometriosis: This is a condition where the endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus. It can affect the functioning of the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus thus interfering with your chances of conceiving a baby.

Treatment: Treatment for infertility depends on how long you've been infertile, age, the cause of infertility and your preferences.

Some of the ways it can be treated are:

  • Fertility Drugs: Fertility drugs are of many types and are often the first step in treating infertility. If the infertility is caused by ovulation disorders, fertility drugs can help regulate or induce ovulation.
  • Surgery: Polyps and fibroids that are preventing pregnancy can be removed surgically to treat infertility triggered by them. It can also be used to treat intrauterine scars.
  • Intrauterine Insemination: This involves the placement of healthy sperm cells directly in the uterus and is timed to match the release of eggs from the ovaries. This can be used in combination with fertility drugs.
  • Assisted Reproductive: In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most common assisted reproductive technique. This involves collecting eggs and sperm from the women and man and fertilizing the egg with the sperm cells in a laboratory. This fertilized embryo is then implanted in the uterus.

Doms- What Is Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness?

Doms- What Is Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness?

Doms- What Is Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness?

Is DOMS stopping you from workout?

The pain or the numbness which you feel post workout is not a pain. It is DOMS! DOMS is typically begins within 12-24 after exercise and it can last up to 72 hours. What happens during DOMS? DOMS develop as a result of microscopic damage to muscle fibers which are involved in the type of exercise you are doing. This damage can be because of the excess stress on particular part of the body during the exercise regime. DOMS is basically a side effect because of damage to the repairing process of the body. 

What causes DOMS? 

Activities which leads to lengthening of muscles with excessive force leads to DOMS. These are the most common examples of activities causing DOMS:- – Jumping exercises. – Aerobic exercises. – Jogging. – Cross fit. – Strength training exercises. – High intensity interval training. Severity of DOMS completely depends upon the type and intensity of force applied on that muscle during that activity. Higher number of repetitions causes more DOMS then lower number of repetitions. 

Can DOMS occur to everyone?  

Well, yes DOMS can occur to everyone who is exercising. It is a myth that DOMS can occur to only those people who are new to exercises. It can happen to people who are working out since ages as well but, the only difference will be the severity of DOMS. If you are exercising since long time, your body gets adapted to it as a result your performance will not be affected completely. If you keep training yourself for the same activity for years, you become less susceptible to DOMS in that particular exercise or activity. 

Is soreness the only cause of DOMS? 

Well no. Here are some most common symptoms of DOMS other than soreness:- – Swelling in the area of extreme pain. – Stiffness of joints. – Tenderness. – Reduced strength. Should you workout the next day with soreness? Most of the people say, they just can’t workout because of the pain. If the pain is extreme and unbearable it is okay not to do extreme exercise but, it completely okay to do some light workouts or something as simple as stretching. If you try and workout the next day, the symptoms of DOMS will start vanishing while you are performing the activity but there are chances that they might reoccur post workout (In your recovery process). Don’t work out on the same muscle groups after DOMS. For example, if you are having severe soreness post jogging then you can workout on your upper body the next day. There is absolutely no need for – NO WORKOUT! If the symptoms are extremely unbearable and excruciating then yes, do not workout. 

How to ease DOMS?  

To reduce the symptoms, apply ice pack on the area where it is paining. Gentle massage. These are just to reduce the symptoms but the complete healing can take place only after the exact diagnosis. How to prevent DOMS? If you undergo severe DOMS on your first day of your workout you probably have might done something wrong. Check for these points before doing your next workout:- * Proper form:-You need to be extremely careful while doing exercises especially the one with weights. * Progression should be extremely personalized:- It should always be started at a slow pace and it should be light with least repetitions (2 different people cannot do the same intensity exercises- It should be personalized) * Intensity plays a very important role:- It should be started with low intensity depending upon the muscle strength and then it should be gradually increased. Once you start taking care about these points and train yourself, your body will start preparing itself for the same exercise in future. Remember the old adage that says there is NO GAIN, WITHOUT PAIN! DOMS cannot be completely avoided but, the severity can be reduced by taking care about the points mentioned above! – Light pain cannot stop you from working out. – Sometimes working out the next day makes you to recover faster! So the crux of this entire article is, please do not skip workouts because of your soreness! Go ahead and do some light exercises or target a different set of exercises!

Disorders Which Can Be Treated With The Help Of Colorectal Surgery!

Disorders Which Can Be Treated With The Help Of Colorectal Surgery!

Colorectal surgery deals with the disorders of the rectum, anus and colon. Another name of colon is ‘large intestine’. These three body parts form the last stages of the digestive process. When the human waste passes through the colon, its salt and water are extracted before it exits the body as human excreta. 

Common Colorectal disorders are:- 

  1. Haemorrhoids 
  2. Anorectal Abscess 
  3. Anal fistula 
  4. Anal fissure 
  5. Rectal Prolapse 
  6. Surgical Constipation 
  7. Pilonidal Sinus 
  8. Proctitis 
  9. Pruritus Ani 

All these diseases are: 

  • Cause of significant patient discomfort & disability 
  • Major effect on overall quality of life 
  • Both men and women are equally affected 
  • Symptoms increase with age 

Important Clinical Features of Anorectal Diseases are:

  1. Bleeding 
  2. Pain 
  3. Altered bowel habit 
  4. Discharge 
  5. Prolapse 
  6. Pruritus(itching
  7. Loss of weight

Bowel habits after colorectal surgery
Many patients report cases of diarrhoea, leakage of stool or gas, urgency to use the toilet and a feeling of insufficient evacuation of faeces. Relax; these conditions are not going to last forever. Your rectum and anus are adjusting to new conditions after this surgery. These organs may take six to twelve months to adjust to new bowel habits.

Is there a need to take a laxative or stool softener?
There is no need to take laxatives after a colorectal surgery. Drink lots of water to make your stool softer and easy to pass. If there is a water deficiency in your body, then it may lead to your faeces becoming hard. In that case, take milk of magnesium, colace etc.

Activities post surgery
You can continue with your normal schedule after this surgical procedure. Carry on running, jogging, exercising, climbing up the stairs etc. even after your surgery. Gastroenterologists recommend that patients should desist from lifting loads weighing more than 10 pounds so that there are no post surgery complications.

Diet after colorectal surgery
Avoid spicy and heavy to digest meals after your surgery. Once the intestines begin working normally, you can continue having your spicy food. Chew your food well to aid its digestion.

Returning to work after colorectal surgery
Most people are back to their work after taking a break of 2-5 days. If the surgery is pretty detailed, you may have to take a break of up to a month. Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery may have to take a rest of 2- 4 weeks before they report back to work. Take it easy before slipping into your regular schedule. If working hurts after your surgery, don’t do it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.
