Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is also known as gestational mellitus diabetes (GDM). It is a prevalent disorder which affects pregnant women and the main cause of this condition is the imbalance in the functioning of the insulin, which mainly happens due to the presence of human placental lactogen. Expecting mothers show a raise in their blood sugar level, especially during the last trimester of their pregnancy. Women who do not have a medical history of diabetes can also be affected with this condition.

Prominent symptoms of gestational pregnancy include:
Gestational diabetes does not have any prominent symptoms; it can only be diagnosed through proper and professional screening of blood sugar level. You should immediately consult a doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:

What is the measure that without protection sex can be done, suggest any pill or vaginal insert pill after which sex can be done with out condom use.

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

Vaginal insertpill today can be used by the woman during sex. But failure rate is high, esp during perovulatory period. So combining it with condom provides double protection.

Yes its normal as you have pcod & thyroid, that is why your cycle is irregular and you had scanty bleeding. If you are not taking medicine to correct thyroid and pcos then start taking after consulting doctor. Along with the medicine do regular exercise for weight loss as it will help correct pcos. Also take adequate nutritious diet with fruits vegetables and dairy products. Quit coffee, canned & fried oily food.

It may be due to injury or infection or allergy from sex toys. Apply cold compress and take anti-allergics. If no relief then see a doctor.

Hello- Improper methods of hair removal (specially on pubic region) results in skin damage and thickening of hair roots in the upcoming hair cycle, this is why when skin gets dry in winters pubic area feels painful and itchy. Trim your hairs instead of using a hair remover or shaving it, you can also go for waxing but in needs to be quick and regular to avoid intense pain. Apply coconut oil mix with camphor locally after removing the hairs. Your problem will be solved.

Should You Keep Having Eggs for Breakfast During SUMMERs?

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, B.Pharma

Should You Keep Having Eggs for Breakfast During SUMMERs?

It is often believed that eggs tend to heat up your stomach and, hence, should be avoided as much as possible. People believe that eating eggs during the hot summer months can lead to detrimental health effects. One of the reasons attributed to this belief is that eggs contain copious amounts of cholesterol, which can generate tremendous amounts of body heat.

However, contrary to popular belief, eggs do not heat up your system and perfectly safe for consumption during the season of some summer.

Having eggs for breakfast helps you with the following:

1. Cholesterol Factor - To be precise, a single egg provides 212 mg of cholesterol out of the recommended 300 mg. However, cholesterol in your diet does not raise the cholesterol levels in your blood. This happens because the liver produces a high quantity of cholesterol each day, and when you eat more eggs causing your cholesterol levels to rise, the liver starts producing less of it. In fact, a study found that eggs didn't raise cholesterol in 70% of its test subjects.

2. Provides Choline - Choline is a substance, which is required by the body to build cell membranes and to perform a horde of other functions like liver function, brain development, nerve, and muscle function. Lack of choline could lead to disruption of these functions. Whole eggs contain more than 100 mg of this less known nutrient, and therefore, should be a part of your diet.

3. Contains Lutein and Zeaxanthin - One of the gradual symptoms of aging is worsening eyesight. There are many types of nutrients that help in countering this degenerative process. Two such nutrients are lutein and zeaxanthin, which eggs are rich in. These two antioxidants help to build up the retina of the eye. Moreover, they also help in preventing eyesight conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. Eggs are also rich in Vitamin A, the lack of which is the most common cause of blindness worldwide.

4. Reduces risk of stroke - For many decades, eggs have been unfairly criticized. A popular misbelief was that high cholesterol in eggs made them a cause for cardiac problems. In a review, which accounted for 17 studies and a total of 263,938 participants, no associations were found between eggs and heart diseases. Eggs are also highly filling and help to lose weight to a certain extent.

Infertility

bachelor of science, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Meerut
Infertility
Infertility
Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. In women, it may also refer to the state when she is not able to carry a pregnancy to its full term.
According to ayurveda, preparing for conception can be easily compared to the process of farming. Just like the health of a crops depends on the quality of soil, seed, timing of sowing, and amount of watering it, gets the health of baby depends on the health of its parents, for a pregnancy to be healthy and successful, a couple needs to take care of the following four essential factor-:
1. Sperm/ovum (seeds)
2. Uterus (soil)
3. Nourishment (water)
4. Time for conception (timing of sowing)

Reproductive health, in both men and women, depends on the health of the reproductive tissue or shukra dhatu. In women, shukra creates the ovum as part of the monthly cycle, and in men the semen is formed due to sexual stimulation. The shukra is created as part of a long chain of metabolic transformations. It starts with the digestion of food, then goes on to transformation of food to nutrient fluid, blood, muscle, fat, bone marrow, and finally, to shukra tissue. Healthy shukra tissue, then according to ayurveda, depends on the health of all the other tissue in the body.

How ginger is useful ?
Ginger

Ginger has been used for medicinal effects since ancient times. Sipping on ginger tea can save you from several uncomfortable conditions. It contains high levels of vitamin c, magnesium and other minerals which are extremely beneficial for a healthy lifestyle. Here is why you should prefer ginger tea over regular one.

Fights respiratory problems:

Ginger tea can also be used to get relief from congestion associated with common cold. Drink a cup of ginger tea regularly to combat the respiratory symptoms associated with environmental allergies

Relieves nausea:

One of the most important benefits of ginger tea is to fight against the nausea. Sipping on ginger tea before travelling can help you avoid the nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness. Drink a cup of ginger tea when you notice the first sign of nausea to relieve the symptom.

Relieves stress:

Ginger tea is known to have calming properties that can help in lowering the levels of stress and tension. The reason behind is considered to be the combination of the strong aroma and healing properties of ginger.

Relieves menstrual discomfort:

Another benefit of drinking ginger tea is for all the women suffering from menstrual cramps. Get a towel and soak it in warm ginger tea and then apply it to your lower abdomen to relieve the pain and relax the muscles. You can also drink ginger tea with honey at the same time for better results.

Balances glucose levels:

A recent study conducted in australia suggests that ginger tea can also help control the blood glucose levels. Glucose levels have a direct impact on your weight as well as your daily energy and performance. Ginger tea can help you feel relaxed and allow you to avoid problems caused by varying blood sugar levels.

Helps weight loss:

Ginger tea can play an integral role in your weight loss program. It acts as a safe fat burner as it helps you lose weight only from fat, and not the general weight. It also helps you feel full, so that you eat less thereby reducing your overall caloric intake.

Reduces inflammation:

Ginger has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that make it an ideal home remedy for muscle and joint problems. Ginger tea is not only good for drinking but it can also be used to soak inflamed joints.

Improves blood circulation:

Ginger tea contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids that can help restore and improve blood circulation thereby reducing the risk of developing the cardiovascular problems. Consumption of ginger is good for heart as it helps in preventing the heart attacks and stroke.

Sore muscle relief:

Ginger teas also offer effective anti inflammatory properties that can be very helpful in relieving the muscle soreness after exercise. Therefore, it is best to sip on ginger tea after tough workouts to help cope with exercise related muscle soreness.
