My daughter is 2 yrs old so now I want to stop feeding but she doesn't agree and she screams like anything so can I get some solution?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology

It can be very difficult to stop breast feeding suddenly. You have to be firm and very persuasive. Tell her that she is now a big girl and offer her her a variety of interesting food, snack items specially when she is hungry and keep her diverted from the breast. Basically see that she does not remain hungry. Also, you can have some children come and play at home with her to distract her at feed times, or you can take her out to play. Children also crave for breast for remaining close to mother, feeling secure and safe. Offer her more hugs and cuddles and say how she can drink with a new sipper, how she can use a straw. Make the change over an interesting fun activity. But be firm, and determined and be ready to face a few tears.

Hi lybrate user, ivf is not 100% garuntee that you will have baby. Chances of success of ivf can be improved with some medicine. Before having this I would like you to go through few blood tests. Depending upon your case history ivf details I will be in better position to guide in best possible way.

My wife had an ectopic gestation because of which one fallopian tube had to be cut. What all precautions need to taken to prevent future ectopic pregnancy?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Every pregnancy begins at fertilisation which happens in fallopian tubes (ft), after fertilisation the ba of cells goes to the uterine cavity and stays there for 8m. So after ectopic when one tube is removed, the chances of ectopic happenning in 2nd tube are high but its not the fonality of all pregnancies. If the fertilised egg makes it to the uterine cavity you can skip having tubal pregnancy but whether this will happen or not will be decided when next fertilisation happens in the remaining tube. You can seek help of local gynec to asses your case. The gynec may ask for hsg to find out patency in remaoning tube. If patent, and caliber is good ectopic may not happen. But if caliber is small ectopic may occur again the only way to avoid it is by doing ivf (test tube baby)

Respirator or Mask - Which One Should You Choose?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
Respirator or Mask - Which One Should You Choose?

Breathe in and breathe out, is an involuntary continuous action through which the human body receives the oxygen it requires for proper functiong. Without oxygen, our entire circulatory system would collapse. However, with the amount of pollutants present in the air today, the air we breathe is not as pure as it should be. Instead of breathing in oxygen, we’re breathing in harmful gases like carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide along with particulate matter. Prolonged exposure to pollutants like this can seriously endanger our health and well-being. Air pollution spreads easily and the only way to protect oneself from it is by creating a barrier that filters the air we breathe in.

And, for this reason it is advisable that one should wear a respirator or mask. When wearing a mask or respirator the most important part is to ensure that it seals your nose and mouth effectively. Otherwise, pollutants can enter through the gaps and contaminate the filtered air. But how should one decide, which type of mask is suitable for them and for that we need to understand what all masks are available.

Respiratory masks can be grouped into three categories:
Surgical masks

  • Simple flat masks as worn by doctors while operating
  • Highly beneficial where there is heavy particulate matter density in the air as they are effectve at filtering out particulate matter
  • Does not offer protection against harmful chemicals
  • It is a good idea to wear these masks while travelling through dusty zones or when caught in a storm
  • Offer protection only for a limited time
  • Cannot bot be reused 
  • Cost around few hundred rupees

Respirators

  • Respirators have similar structure as that of surgical masks 
  • They fit the face better that surgical mask
  • Have filters installed and protection against particulate matter and against certain gases and chemicals
  • For better protection, they should be washed regularly against harmful fumes and particulate matter encountered
  • Should be used while travelling through heavy traffic zones and while working in construction zones
  • Ideal way to to protect yourself 
  • Cost around few hundred to thousand rupees, based on thier quality and brand

Gas masks

  • Gas masks are often worn in chemical laboratories
  • Special replaceable filters offer full protection against, both particulate matter and harmful chemicals
  • Basic mask costs around 1000 rupees and higher based on quality and brand

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

As a rule hormones in birth control pills should not be taken for more than 6 months, due to cancer risk at age 50, our suggestion to every woman is, once family is complete, get iucd fitted as it can be removed if due to any reason, the woman feels that she is bleeding more. Some daring ones do opt for ligation but in that case the woman needs at least 1 month rest, as it may look like 1 stitch from outside but internally the operation is as good/ bad as an abdominal appendix operation.

5 Foods for Healthy Living

5 Foods for Healthy Living

We often tend to ignore our diet. Every day we carefully separate the greens on our plate and eat only what we like. We eat all kinds of fast food and then claim that we will burn it in the gym, but soon when the weighing scale shows no change or shows an increase, we tend to get agitated and claim, “Even after I go to the gym daily, I am unable to reduce my weight”.

Now this line is the most common thing, which comes out of your mouth, and others mouth too. It is indeed sad that people tend to ignore the fact that ‘health is 80% dietary control and 20% physical exertion’, this is the reason why it is said you are what you eat. So now, let me tell you about some of the foodstuff you ought to eat to maintain health.

Hence some healthy options for your platter, health and looks are:

Turmeric

Turmeric or ‘Haldi’ is a fine yellow powder, which is used to add color and taste to your dishes. Turmeric is also an antiseptic and is often applied on wounds and cuts. Some other benefits of Turmeric are that they help to combat stomach troubles, sore throat, skin problems, cough, ear and eye problems.

Onions

Onions are almost added to every dish to make it tasty and add a flavor and an aroma to it. Onions are very useful to cure to stomach related problems. Onions also are rich in Vitamin C and riboflavin.

Fenugreek

Many often dislike the vegetable fenugreek or ‘methi’, but people fail to realize that it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Fenugreek is a cure for stomach problems, respiratory disorders, body odor and is also very effective in controlling diabetes.

Watermelon

 Now that summer is in the air and every ones sweating profusely, it is natural that your body is going to be devoid of water. Well watermelon provides more than hydration, it is also effective in curing erectile dysfunction, skin problems, preventing cancer, etc.

Eggplants
