Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) - All You Need To Know!

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG)
Gynaecologist, Alwar
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) - All You Need To Know!

An in-vitro fertilisation procedure carried out to counter the problem of male infertility is Intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Male infertility factors include poor quality of sperm, low sperm counts, poor sperm movement or the disability to penetrate an egg. Azoospermia is one such rare condition wherein there is no sperm in the semen. Through this injection, a single sperm can be injected into the egg directly. The fertilised egg is placed into the woman s uterus or the fallopian tubes. The first successful birth using this procedure was on January 1992 after the conception took place in April 1991.

Collecting Sperm
Sperm can be collected from the male through masturbation. If this procedure somehow fails then sperm can be removed through a surgery. Using a small incision, sperm can be withdrawn from the testicle and is used in the procedure. If the ejaculation of sperm is prevented due to a blockage or if the problem arises in the development of the sperm, surgery method is used.

Injecting the sperm
This is performed through the following steps. A specialised pipette or a glass tube is used to hold the egg, a single sperm is picked with the help of a sharp and delicate needle, the needle is then inserted carefully into the cytoplasm of the egg through the egg shell, then the sperm gets injected into the cytoplasm and the eggs are checked to see whether they have been adequately fertilized.

After this process is done, eggs which are fertilised successfully are selected and placed into the uterus with the help of a catheter. The number of embryos an individual needs to transfer is determined depending on the age of the person and other health issues. For this purpose, a thorough full body check-up is carried out and the medical history is checked during the preliminary consultations.

Expectations from the treatment
The treatment of fertilisation using an Intracytoplasmic sperm injection can be demanding, both physically and mentally for the woman (mother). An individual has to go through regular shots and monitoring including blood tests. There are moments when the shots can be painful for the woman undergoing the procedure.

The reason behind the procedure
When a male is having severe infertility issues, the method of ICSI is helpful. There are times when very little sperm or no sperm ejaculation, the eggs can be fertilised through this procedure. Testing of an embryo for genetic problems is also accomplished through this procedure. When in vitro fertilisation or IVF does not work even after trying repeatedly, then couples can undergo the treatment using ICSI.

Success rate
When ICSI is used along with better quality eggs, it is seen to be successful on many occasions. Especially for men who have sperm ejaculation issues. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Obesity and Diabetes

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, DDM, CCACCD
Diabetologist, Mumbai
Obesity and Diabetes

Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates, sugars and starches found in many foods, into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. Diabetes develops when the body doesn't make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.

The two main types of diabetes are:

Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults, though it can appear at any age. In the past, type 1 diabetes was called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

Heredity plays an important part in determining who is likely to develop type 1 diabetes. Genes are passed down from biological parent to child.

Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are also overweight or obese. The disease, once rare in youth, is becoming more common in overweight and obese children and adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of factors, including insulin resistance, a condition in which the body's muscle, fat, and liver cells do not use insulin effectively.

Physical Inactivity, Obesity, and Diabetes: Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.

An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular disease (CVD). This excess belly fat produces hormones and other substances that can cause harmful, chronic effects in the body such as damage to blood vessels.

So, measuring your waist is a quick way of assessing your diabetes risk. This is a measure of abdominal obesity, which is a particularly high-risk form of obesity. Women have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their waist measures 80cm (31.5 inches) or more. Asian men with a waist size of 89cm (35 inches) or more have a higher risk, as do white or black men with a waist size of 94cm (37 inches) or more.

Simple Steps to Lower Your Risk: Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and other life taking cancers.

1. Control Your Weight: Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven-fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Check your BMI. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.

2. Get Moving and Turn Off the Television: Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.

3. Tune Up Your Diet: Four dietary changes can have a big impact on the risk of type 2 diabetes-

Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates.

  • Skip the sugary drinks, and choose water, coffee, or tea instead.
  • Choose good fats instead of bad fats.
  • Limit red meat and avoid processed meat; choose nuts, whole grains, poultry, or fish instead.

If you are already suffering from diabetes, then do take a walk everyday and adopt healthy eating habits. Along with that relieve your stress and take proper doses of insulin or medications as prescribed by your doctor.

All About Gestational Trophoblastic Disease

All About Gestational Trophoblastic Disease

Gestational trophoblastic disease is a rare condition. It only happens when trophoblast cells abnormally grow inside the uterus. Also, this only happens after conception. These cells surround the egg which has been fertilized in the uterus. It is also worth note that the trophoblast cells usually connect the fertilized eggs to the uterus' walls and also form a part of the placenta. It is only when there is a tumor that this disease is diagnosed. There are many forms of gestational trophoblastic disease. Here they are:

Types:

  1. Complete hydatidiform moles
  2. Partial hydatidiform moles
  3. Invasive moles
  4. Choriocarcinomas
  5. Placental-site trophoblastic tumors (PSTT)
  6. Epithelioid trophoblastic tumors (ETT)

It is worth note that most of these diseases have different stages. The stage of how far the cancer has developed can be found out using the following techniques.
Testing for cancer:

  1. Chest X-ray: This is simply an X-ray of the chest.
  2. MRI: An MRI is an abbreviation of magnetic resonance imaging. It makes use of a form of magnet which transfers radio waves to a computer to find out what is going on within your body.
  3. CT scan: This is similar to an X-ray except that more detailed and larger pictures inside the body can be taken and the scan has a slightly different procedure. There are several ways to treat it depending on how far the cancer has spread into the body. Here they are:

Treatment:

  1. Surgery: Surgery is usually done while the mole is still non-cancerous. The chances of the mole becoming cancerous are increased by pregnancy. Therefore, it is crucial that you do not become pregnant until the surgery is complete.
  2. Chemotherapy: This is a less-ideal option but has to be taken if the mole has become cancerous.

गठिया का दर्द (Rheumatism)

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
गठिया का दर्द (Rheumatism)

परिचय :
गठिया रोग को आमवात, संधिवात आदि नामों से भी जाना जाता है। इस रोग में सबसे पहले शरीर में निर्बलता और भारीपन के लक्षण दिखाई देते हैं। इस रोग के होने पर हाथ के बीच की उंगलियों में दर्द होता है। अगर इसका इलाज नही किया जाता तो हाथ की दूसरी उंगलियों में भी सूजन व दर्द होने लगता है। गठिया रोग होने पर शरीर की हडि्डयों में दर्द होता है, जिसके कारण रात को रोगी सो भी नहीं पाता है।
कारण :
तेज मसालों से बना भोजन (फास्ट फूड), गर्म भोजन, ठंडी चीजों का अधिक सेवन करने से पेट में गैस पैदा होती है जिसके कारण यह रोग उत्पन्न होता है। जब भोजन आमाशय में जाकर अधपचा रह जाता है तो भोजन का अपरिपक्व रस जिसे `आम´ कहते हैं वो त्रिक (रीढ की हड्डी का निचला हिस्सा) की हडि्डयों में जाकर वायु के साथ दर्द उत्पन्न करता है। इसी रोग को गठिया का रोग कहते हैं। चिकित्सकों के अनुसार- यह रोग भोजन के ठीक से पचने से पहले पुन: भोजन कर लेने से, प्रकृति-विरूद्ध पदार्थों को खाने से, अधिक शीतल और वसायुक्त खाद्य-पदार्थों का सेवन करने से उत्पन्न होता है।
गठिया का रोग दांत गन्दे रहना, भय, अशान्ति, शोक, चिन्ता, अनिच्छा का काम, पानी में भीगना, ठंड लगना, आतशक, सूजाक, अधिक स्त्री सहवास (संभोग), ठंडी रूखी चीजें खाना, रात को अधिक जागना, मल-मूत्र के वेग को रोकना, चोट लगना, अधिक खून बहना, अधिक श्रम, मोटापा आदि कारणों से होता है। यह रोग खून की कमी, शारीरिक कमजोरी तथा बुढ़ापे में हड्डियों की चिकनाई कम होने के कारण भी उत्पन्न होता है। इस रोग में दर्द या तो बाएं या दाएं घुटने में अथवा दोनों घुटनों में होता है। रोगी को बैठने के बाद खड़े होने में तकलीफ होती है और रात के समय रोग बढ़ जाता है। सर्दी तथा वर्षा के मौसम में यह रोग दर्द के साथ रोगी को व्याकुल कर देता है एवं चलने-फिरने, उठने-बैठने में तकलीफ पैदा करता है। रोगी के घुटने कड़े हो जाते हैं और उनमें कभी-कभी सूजन भी हो जाती है।
लक्षण :
भोजन का अच्छा न लगना, अधिक आलस आना, बुखार से शरीर के विभिन्न अंगों में सूजन, कमर और घुटनों में तेज दर्द जिसके कारण रोगी रात को सो नही पाता है आदि गठिया रोग में होने वाले लक्षण है। इसके अलावा इस रोग में रोगी के हाथ-पांव की अंगुलियों में सूजन होती है जिससे अंगुलियां सीधी नही होती है, शरीर के दूसरे भागों में सूजन व दर्द रहता है। इस रोग के होने पर जोड़ो व मांसपेशियों में दर्द रहता है।
भोजन तथा परहेज :
एक वर्ष पुराने चावल, जंगली पशु-पक्षियों के मांस का सूप, एरण्डी का तेल, पुरानी शराब, लहसुन, करेला, परवल, बैंगन, सहजना, लस्सी, गोमूत्र, गर्म पानी, अदरक, कड़वे एवं भूख बढ़ाने वाले पदार्थ, साबूदाना, तथा बिना चुपड़ी रोटी का सेवन करना गठिया रोग में लाभकारी है। इस रोग में फलों का सेवन और सुबह नंगे पैर घास पर टहलना रोगी के लिए लाभकारी होता है। गठिया रोग में रात को सोते समय एक गिलास दूध में जरा-सी हल्दी डालकर पीने से लाभ मिलता है।
उड़द की पिट्ठी की कचौडी तथा बड़ी मछली, दूध, दही, पानी, गर्म (मसालेदार) भोजन, रात को अधिक देर तक जागना, मल-मूत्र के वेग को रोकना आदि गठिया रोग में हानिकारक है। मूली, केला, अमरूद, कटहल, चावल, लस्सी एवं गुड़ आदि का प्रयोग भी इस रोग में हानिकारक है। इस रोग में रोगी को भूख से एक रोटी कम खानी चाहिए और ठंडी वस्तुओं का सेवन कम करने चाहिए। रोगी को शरीर को अधिक थकाने वाले कार्य नहीं करने चाहिए तथा खाने के बाद बैठकर पढ़ने-लिखने का कार्य भी अधिक नहीं करना चाहिए।

Hello, gaining weight and irregular menses is indicative of pcos and possible hypothyroidism which can cause anovulation i. E. No release of ovum or no menses and hence difficulty in conception, so get a hormonal profile done and an ultrasound pelvis for ruling out pcos.
