Benefit of fibers in diet
We all heard some where that fiber is good for health and one should eat food which is rich in fiber. But how fiber help us to live healthy?
1 fibers form bulk of stool so it help in regulation of bowl movement. So help in constipation.
2 it gives us satiety value. Means high fiber food is not easy to digest, by eating small amout your hunger get satisfied and you will not become immediately hungry. So overall you eat less. Which help to maintain your body weight
3 it is also help in absorption of nutrients
4 it reduces post prandial plasma glusose and increase tissue insulin sensitivity. Which is very helpful in diabetes.
Food rich in fibers are
Whole wheat product, bajara, ragi, maize, green leafy vegetables, fruits with skin, seed
Also oats, whole pulses, isabgol, whole grain are rich source of fiber.

While choosing a method of contraception, it is important that it not interfere with lactation or have negative effects on the infant. Iucd or copper t is more effective than condoms and progesterone only pills. Oc pills suppresses milk production. Estrogen containing contraceptive pill either it is standard dose or low dose, it reduces the volume of breast milk. Progestin-only contraceptives like cerazette for 28 days are safe for use by breast-feeding mothers if copper t is not acceptable.

Hello doctors, I am studying MBBS. My sister aged 28 has been detected with 2 uterine fibroids. One fibroid sized 7 cm is located in right lateral uteral wall. Treatment prescribed was MRgFUS in women centre, coimbatore by famous Gynaecologist. My sister is planning for baby. Will this treatment will affect pregnancy? Any side effects? Any hidden truths? Thank you doctors for great service.

Dear Lybrate user, The surgical removal of the fibroid while preserving the uterus of female reproductive system ,recurrences are often observed. Homeopathic remedies tend to balance the hormones, cure the fibroids and reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. They are natural, effective, with no side effects and can be used even during pregnancy. Homeopathy can offer good health to women in all stages of their lives from infancy through old age. It is beneficial for the full range of emotional, mental and physical problems that a woman is likely to experience in her life. Later age, in life when a woman gets pregnant, or has a hard time conceiving (homeopathy can help with problems of infertility), it can assist with difficulties frequently encountered, such as morning sickness and depression. By treating the mother during pregnancy and making her as healthy as she can be, we can insure that the baby will be born healthy and free of inherited diseases. By treating throughout pregnancy, we also assist the mother to go through childbirth safely and joyfully. The homeopathic healing art is beneficial in helping women overcome the effects of hormonal shocks to the system. Homeopathy is truly a friend to women. It is a comprehensive system of medicine which is able to meet the needs of people in all facets of their lives, and through all of life’s transitions. By strengthening the immune system and helping to balance the mind and the emotions, homeopathy can help women achieve the higher purposes of their lives, and feel their very best.

Please do morning walk (brisk-walking)/ treadmill/swimming for at least 60 minutes daily. Keep moving as much as you can whenever you can. Keep meal portions small especially if they’re cooked. Limit your food intake which SHOULD be and ONLY be 4 times a day. Do never skip meals. Take a heavy breakfast. Avoid sedentary life/night watching/junk foods. The best way to burn more calories is to build muscle through resistance training. For each pound of muscle that you gain, you burn approximately 50-70 calories in addition per day (5 pounds of muscle gain equates to burning 250-350 calories a day!) Please follow the above for next 4 weeks and revert for further treatment.

Both Duphaston and Susten are progesterone support medicines. Both need not be taken at a time. One of the two should suffice. But again as I don't know your medical history completely can't say why your doctor started both. There definitely must have been some reason.

7 Everyday Healthy Habits We All Must Follow!

7 Everyday Healthy Habits We All Must Follow!

Eating healthy food item like fruits, green leafy vegetables, salad etc. We have always been hearing this from our elders about how a healthy body is key to a healthy mind. Trying to define health in a sentence is possible, but not justifiable because it is an umbrella term for a lot of aspects of our life. Being healthy is that state of our existence where we are happy, content and at the epitome of our fitness. Life is too short to fret over things that make us unhappy, so taking decisions that would make us content mentally and physically is the first step to attaining a healthy lifestyle. Now, one could easily start a debate here stating how eating unhealthy food or indulging in unhealthy habits also make people happy. Yes, they do, but that is a momentary gratification and with one single life, it is essential to think long-term.

This article will have certain tips that could help an individual fall right on track if he/she wants to jumpstart their healthy lifestyle.

  1. Eating healthy food items, should not feel or look like restriction. It should be a mentality, a lifestyle rather than being a meaningless difficult regimen.
  2. In order to avoid unhealthy snacking, it would be a good idea to keep those kinds of food away from the visual arena.
  3. It is not necessary to entirely cut off the love for sweets. It would be great to eat strategic sweets like dark chocolate to fulfil the cravings and not feel guilty about it.
  4. Carrying homemade lunch is a very good idea to keep oneself away from unhealthy restaurant food. The best part about this is that a lot of money is saved.
  5. Proper strategies can definitely get us going. For example, the veggies we eat do not necessarily need to be tasteless. In fact, adding some spices or sauces (made from vinaigrette and different seasonings) can not only make the food taste great, but also help bring out the innovations inside us.
  6. One great way we can keep ourselves motivated is by talking about the dietary plans and goals with a friend and discussing the major healthy lifestyle changes that have already been taken care of.
  7. Keeping a journal about the progress and also rewarding oneself on reaching small goals are amazing ways to keep going.

There are numerous tips for a healthy lifestyle, but one important advice is to avoid alcohol and also other addictive substances like nicotine (which means smoking cigarettes). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist and ask a free question.

Here are some treatments and symptoms of PCOS

Symptoms and Treatments for PCOS
Hi! I’m Dr. Chhavi Bansal and I’m practicing Homeopathy at Homeosure-Home of Homeopathy and Wellness, Pitampura.
I’ll be discussing about Polycystic Ovarian Disease today.

Polycystic Ovarian Disease has become the single most common hormonal imbalance of the reproductive age group and has become the major cause of infertility in this age group.
It roughly affects every one in five women of reproductive age group. PCOD is commonly known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which means a group of symptoms which categorize PCOD.
The symptoms can be – most importantly, it is weight gain especially round or middle, acne or oily skin, hirsutism (development of hair on face), thinning of scalp hair or loss of scalp hair, infrequent menstruation cycle and subfertility.

How is PCOD diagnosed?
According to Rotterdam criteria, two of the following three diagnostic criteria should be present in a patient to diagnose her as suffering from PCOD. These diagnostic criteria includes –
Firstly, presence of signs and symptoms in a patient or elevation of male hormones in the blood test.
Secondly, infrequent or no ovulation.
Thirdly, presence of polycystic ovaries in an ultrasound.

In an ultrasound, development of more than 10 follicles ranging from 2 to 9 millimeters in diameter or ovarian volume more than 10 cubic centimeters signifies the presence of polycystic ovaries.
Now, coming to the management of Polycystic Ovarian Disease. Apart from medicinal interventions, weight loss have shown remarkable changes in the ovarian functions and in almost 30 percent of the cases, no other medicinal intervention was required if the patient maintains her weight. But it is also being found that in 50 percent of females suffering with PCOD are not overweight so there is one more factor to PCOD that is higher level of blood glucose.

So, if a patient manages to lose her weight and control her blood glucose, it will definitely help her maintain and manage her PCOD in a very well way.
Harms of PCOD - In a long run a patient suffering from PCOD can develop a lot many complications, like a patient can develop metabolic syndrome, she can have high levels of triglyceride and cholesterol , she can develop diabetes mellitus and she can develop high BP as well.

Apart from these, PCOD has been the major cause of infertility these days so it leads to subfertility in most of the females.
Coming to the dietary management of the PCOD. It has been found that people who take more of omega-3 fatty acids in fruits and vegetables, they stimulate their synthesis of sex hormone binding globulin which helps you prevent and maintain your PCOD.

Other dietary advises include cutting down alcohol, caffeine intake, quitting smoking, decrease intake of saturated fats, cutting down your trans fats and cutting down your artificial sweeteners intake.
Now, coming to the Homeopathic management of PCOD, the root cause of PCOD lies in the hormonal imbalance or hormonal dysfunctioning of the body and so, from this root cause, it is easily perceived that this constitutional disease requires constitutional treatment.
Homeopathy has treated thousands of cases of PCOD and has brought stability in the menstrual cycles of lot many females in the shortest possible time.

If you have any other query related to Polycystic Ovarian Disease, feel free to consult me through Lybrate.

World Red Cross Day - Why Donating Blood Is Good For Health?

MBBS
General Physician, Jammu
World Red Cross Day - Why Donating Blood Is Good For Health?

There are many health benefits of donating blood which include good health, reducing the risk of cancer along with hemochromatosis. Moreover, blood donation is good for the normal functioning of pancreas and liver. With the blood donation, an individual can improve the cardiovascular health as well as reduce the risk of obesity.

Every day blood transfusions take place saving millions of life on earth. And the best part is that blood donation is good for the donor. It is crucial for the blood donation to take place in a medical facility under the supervision of experts. The donors must ensure that they are in optimum health conditions for avoiding any health issues after the transfusion is completed.

Benefits of donating blood:
There are numerous benefits of blood donation, and some of them include-

  1. Hemochromatosis: The health benefits of blood donation reduce the risk of developing hemochromatosis. It is a disorder which arises owing to excessive absorption of iron in the human body. This condition can be inherited through the genes or may also be triggered by uncontrolled alcoholism, chronic anaemia and other health problems. One should take part in blood donation on a regular basis for the reduction of iron overload.
  2. Anti cancer health benefits: Donating blood at regular intervals can also lower the risk of cancer. After donating blood, the iron stored in the body is maintained at healthy levels. The reduction in the iron concentrations in the body is also connected with reduced risk of cancer and thus helps keep cancer at bay.
  3. Good for liver and heart: Blood donation is useful for reducing the risk of heart and liver disorders which are triggered by the iron overload in the body. Only a limited amount of iron can be absorbed by the body, and the rest starts accumulating in the heart, pancreas and lungs. This can pave the way for liver failure and cirrhosis, damage to the pancreas and complications in the heart such as irregular heart rhythms. The blood donation helps in maintaining the optimum iron levels as well as reduces the risk of different ailments.
  4. Helps in weight loss: Regular blood donation also helps in weight of the donors. This is great for those who are overweight and obese. It is advantageous for those who are suffering from cardiovascular and other health disorders.
  5. Production of new cells: After the donation of blood, the body starts working for replenishing the loss of blood. This helps in stimulating the production of new blood cells and in turn aids in the maintenance of good health.

It is imperative to note here that to enjoy the benefits of blood donation, an individual has to wait for eight weeks after a session of whole blood donation. Also, it is crucial to wait for 16 weeks in between the power red blood donation. One should always consult with the doctor to be sure that he or she is fit for donating blood and should avoid it while suffering from any disorders or infections.

First of all = you do not have sugar (diabetes) secondly = metformin was given to you for pcod as metformin is also meant for insulin resistance *(which in later stage leads to diabetes) all the symptoms that happened to you were because of low blood sugar. It happened with metformin so you are advised not to take it. You don't need it! please do not be tense- eat well and forget metformin- you will be ok.

6 Ways to Stop Repeated Vaginal Infections

6 handy tips to manage repeated vaginal infections

Vaginal infections occur when the walls of the vagina get inflamed. This can be caused by several factors such as bacteria, viruses, yeast, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), chemicals and clothing. The standard medical term for it is vaginitis and it bothers most women at some point in their lives.

Maintaining vaginal and overall genital health is very important in preventing and dealing with infections that affect the affect the area, especially those which are persistent or recurrent.

Some tips to manage repeated vaginal infections are as follows:

1. Maintaining personal hygiene.
The most important aspect of maintaining vaginal health is keeping the pubic region cleansed and hydrated. Poor hygiene and dryness make it more prone to recurring infection.

2. Using the right products. Harsh chemical soaps and sprays may cause irritation to the vagina and make it susceptible to inflammation due to infection.

3. Wearing skin-friendly clothing. Certain types and materials of clothing have a harmful impact on the delicate skin of the genital area which puts the vagina at the risk of contracting infections. These include nylon underwear, tight jeans and trousers, pantyhose with no cotton lining, etc. Wearing soft cotton underwear and linen bottoms are the best ways to prevent vaginal infection and inflammation.

4. Using protection during sex. Protected sexual intercourse prevents the spread of STDs which cause vaginal infection. Hence, it is always advisable to use a condom while having sex.

5. Urinating after sex. Always urinating after sex reduces the chances of catching a vaginal infection.

6. Getting regular health checkups. The most efficient way of managing vaginal infections is by getting the vagina checked up by your gynaecologist as regularly as possible so as to prevent further complications and ensure early detection of infections or diseases.

These are some of the simple and effective ways of handling vaginal infections. Most cases are not very serious and can be easily treated and managed.
