All About Iron Deficiency - Anemia

Clinical Hematology , MD, MBBS
Hematologist, Noida
All About Iron Deficiency - Anemia

Anemia is a condition where the red blood cell count is reduced due to deficiencies within the system. This is usually caused by a lack of iron, folate and other related nutrients in the diet. Anemia is a major public health concern in India as over 50 percent of women are known to be anemic. This pushes up the mortality rate of young mothers and even children.

Some symptoms of Iron deficiency anemia
Anemia has a wide range of symptoms which varies from person to person. However there are some generic symptoms which can be noticed in most people. Some of these are

  1. Pale appearance of skin - Many people exhibit this symptom where their skin appears to be pale as there is a reduced amount of oxy - hemoglobin in the skin.
  2. Physical weakness, light headedness and fatigue - This is a general symptom, which many tend to suffer from and complain about. Fatigue and weakness may come in very quickly even with the slightest effort.
  3. Hair loss - Many women may complain about hair loss due to Iron deficiency  anemia.

Some other symptoms are:

  1. Breathlessness
  2. Constipation
  3. Missed or irregular periods
  4. Numbness or burning sensations
  5. Depression
  6. Tinnitus among others

Causes of Iron deficiency anemia
The primary cause of Iron deficiency anemia is the lack of iron in the diet which causes the hemoglobin in the blood to be reduced. Some of the patients may still have Iron deficiencyanemia as they have developed gastrointestinal disorders which prevents the absorption of nutrients like iron within the body.

How to treat Iron deficiency anemia
Diet related anemia can be easily cured or controlled with changing diets. Inclusion of certain foods within the diet can easily reverse the Iron deficiencies. Some of the food items that help with deficiencies are:

  1. Fortified cereals
  2. Green dark leafy vegetables
  3. Poultry items
  4. Eggs
  5. Meat

You may also require certain iron supplements if you have certain underlying conditions which is causing issues with iron absorption.

How to prevent Iron deficiency anemia
It is important, especially for women to go for regular checkups to your doctor and also a hemoglobin check up. Your doctor or dietician can tell you to include certain foods in your diet that include folate, iron and vitamin B 12 so that the level of hemoglobin in your blood can be maintained at healthy levels.

Remember excess of everything is bad. Masterbation if done 2-3 times a week is ok but your food habits need to be good. Use extra energy in good habits. It looks you have no work except this or you are compromising other things like studies or work. Spend quality time to health and go for morning jogging, play some games, eat fresh fruits (all what is available in the season), and fresh vegetables,(all different types). In this way a positive approach to growth and good health will be there.

Hello. Many young athletes have same issues like you have. Tummy is the toughest part to reduce. But not impossible. Exercises which include the lover abs are needed but. Most most importantly a diet control is highly needed for this. Carbs and fats are lovered the most and proteins should be maximised.

12 Secrets to a Better Orgasm

MS in Sexuality and psychotherapy, PhD - Psychology
Sexologist, Hyderabad
12 Secrets to a Better Orgasm

1. Hit the hot spots

A friction position may help you have an orgasm during intercourse. Get on top, for example, so the top of your clitoris is rubbing directly on your partner’s pubic bone. Or lay on your back with a pillow underneath your butt.

2. Talk the talk

" men really want direction. Let your partner know when he’s on the right track, either by telling him what feels great or by moaning.

3. Learn on your own

You can’t talk the talk if you don’t know what turns you on" to train your body to be orgasmic, you have to masturbate.

4. Exercise your orgasm muscles

 

" kegels are the classic exercise for women who want to transform feeble orgasms into fabulous ones, locate these muscles in your pelvic floor by stopping yourself from peeing midstream. Then tone them by clenching when you’re not peeing. Do kegels every day, ideally a few times a day. And keep breathing while you squeeze.

5. Get risky

Research shows that engaging in thrill-seeking behaviors together stimulates dopamine in the brain, which gets your juices flowing.

6. Delay the pleasure

" the longer the arousal buildup, the bigger the explosion. Get yourself close to orgasm, then slow to a simmer. Repeat that a few times before you climax.

7. Focus on breathing

Tantric sex may sound new-agey, but its central tenet—focused breathing—may boost your pleasure" you can use your breath to channel your sexual energy. Partners who breathe in tandem may slow the rush to orgasm and create a bigger buildup, which can intensify pleasure.

8. Explore erotic

Erotic movies and books can be tasteful and arousing, and the more aroused you are, the better your orgasm chances.

9. Try creative foreplay

If it takes you longer than your partner to warm up, fulbright says, get a head start by e-mailing or texting each other sexy messages.

10. If you’re not orgasmic, advice from a pro may be helpful. Nerve damage or low testosterone could be the problem" your doctor can do a medical evaluation" or look at relationship factors"

11. Relax, relax, relax!

Thanks for your query. You must verify from a laboratory whether your friend has any sexually transmitted diseases. It is possible that one of your previous partners was retro positive or has dangerous infections which can not only cause illness in you but also your future partner. The illness can range from mild to severe ly debilitating. Many infected patients are actually desperate ly trying so seek uninfected partners as an act of revenge or hate etc. They will attract you to sex till thay are sure that you are successfully infected and will fall sick. Infact it is something like trying to poison someone. So be very careful about your partners. Even the same partner who was uninfected earlier can become infected suddenly and cause infect like poison. So its dangerous. For more details contact me in private section.

I have been suffering from sleep apnea since last 7-8 years when I used to wake up early in morning 3-4 am with bad dream and huge headache along with weight loss . One of the top doctor at Sir Gangaram Hospital advised me Rivotril 0.5 mg for faster relief which did give me sleep also allowed me to regain weight over 5-6 years. But I wanted to get rid of my dependence on sleep medicine and went to a sleep specialist who advised me sleep test. Report indicted I am having excessive snoring with oxygen deprivation which is disturbing my sleep. My AHI is 11.6 /hr with minimum oxygen saturation at 91%. He advised use of CPAP m/c on trial for 7 days. I could use CPAP only for 3-4 days as it puts me into inconvenience specially my upper jaw becomes painful and tight in the morning besides other inconvenience of using this mask. While morning walk and meditation has allowed me to get rid of medicine for last 10 days. I still get restless sleep after 3-4 am and headache in morning and not completely cured. I had front upper 3 teeth crowned (middle teeth has to be removed and 2 side teeth crowned in order to have front look intact) around same time (8 years back) and feel the less gap in 3 crowned front upper teeth and raised portion could be troubling me for lack of oxygen or when I wear mask for CPAP. Can you please advise what should I do as this problem is spoiling my health and I am determined to get rid of this.
