Tips to Deal With Celiac Disease in Children

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Tips to Deal With Celiac Disease in Children

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease caused due to intolerance to the protein called gluten found in common foods like wheat, barley, and rye. The exact reason for the disease is not known, but gluten attacks the small finger-like projections in the intestine called the villi, which help absorb nutrients during the digestion, leading to malnourishment.

Onset of the disease is usually once the child has started on solid foods and can include diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, underweight, skin rashes, anemia, mouth sores, etc. Diagnosis usually happens with a detailed discussion and checking the level of antibodies against gluten in the blood. In rare cases, an intestinal biopsy may also be required. Once confirmed, the following are ways to manage celiac disease.

Dietary changes: Avoiding gluten-containing foods is the first step to treating celiac disease. These are common food substances like wheat and barley. In some cases, the entire family may choose to or need to take this diet, just to provide moral support to the child.

  1. Breads, cakes (made from wheat)
  2. Creamed or breaded vegetables
  3. Processed meats
  4. Dry roasted nuts (as agents used in processing could have wheat)
  5. Fried chicken
  6. Pastas
  7. French fries (that are coated in flour)
  8. Spreads, soft cheeses, and dips
  9. Salad dressings
  10. Gravies and sauces (including some tomato and meat sauces)
  11. Soup mixes and canned soups
  12. Crab or other seafood
  13. Malt or malt-flavored drinks (usually made from barley)
  14. Modified food starch (modified corn starch is OK; modified wheat starch is not)
  15. Nondairy creamer
  16. Soy sauce and soy sauce solids (may be fermented with wheat)
  17. Wheat-free products (may contain barley or rye flour)
  18. Yogurts containing wheat starch

Read the labels of foods to ensure they are free of gluten. Organic/natural food stores and health food stores contain wide range of gluten-free products that can be used with minimal effect on the child's food habits.

Eating out: Just because the child has celiac disease, eating out is not ruled out. Carefully choosing what to eat is suggested. Also, letting the chef know is a good idea, as most chefs will prepare something safer for the child.

Cross-contamination: Avoid cross-contamination: In schools or in cases where the child could potentially eat from other children's boxes, make sure the child is well informed and ensure he does not eat from other kids' lunch boxes. It is also a good idea to keep the class teacher and a couple of his close friends informed of the child's condition.

Most children are easy to educate and adapt well to the changes required, knowing very well that it is for their own good.

Breathing exercises you should do before your daily walk
Before starting out for a walk, relax and take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air which will move them into their most efficient position. After you exhale, maintain the chest in this position with shoulders down and slightly back throughout the walk.

Hello, As i can see you have not put on much in your pregnancy, but do take care that you don't put on weight during lactating period. It is a common notion that you need to eat for two, specially from the mothers, so i would like to suggest you take in 500 calories more, which you will get from eating 2 more chapatis, 1 catorie more of rice and from 1 serving of vegetables and 2 serving of fruits. Also you will take into consideration the ghee and oil and all the sweets. Have small meals rather that three large meals and also have lote of water. Since you have had a C-section, dont jump in strenious exercises without consultation with your Gyneac. Do come for consultation for details diet chart

Pregnancy Diet - Dos And Don'ts

Pregnancy Diet - Dos And Don'ts

Dietary dos and don'ts for pregnancy

Pregnancy is an important time in a woman's life. During this period, you need to be most conscious of what to eat, do and how to change everyday habits. Following these dos and don'ts will ensure a smooth pregnancy experience for you.

Dos:

1. Take your prenatal vitamin


If you have not yet started taking a prenatal vitamin, now is the time to start. It's particularly critical to get enough folic acid while trying to conceive importantly during the first trimester. It greatly reduces your baby's risk of developing neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida.

2. If you smoke, quit

Smoking increases your risk of developing several problems including miscarriages, placental and preterm birth problems. It slows the fetal growth and increases the risk of stillbirth and infant death. It's never too late to quit or cut back smoking. Every cigarette you don't light gives your baby a much better chance of being healthy.

3. Do eat seafood

Seafood is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Consume a variety of seafood so you don't have a concentration of minerals from only one type of fish. But remember to not eat more than 12 ounces of fish per 7 days.

Don'ts:

1. Don't drink alcohol


Alcohol may immensely impact your baby's development. Women who drink alcohol while pregnant could easily deliver a baby with fetal alcohol syndrome (fas). Symptoms of fas are usually low birth weight, learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and lagging patterns in terms of growth and development milestones. Limiting or avoiding alcohol is a step that you need to take.

2. Don't eat raw meat at all

Raw and undercooked meat or eggs carries the risk of food-borne diseases as well as food poisoning incidence. Make sure all eggs and meat that you eat while you are pregnant are cooked well.

3. Don't drink lot of caffeine

Caffeine easily travels through the placenta and increases your baby's heart beats. Research shows that women can safely consume a cup or two of coffee every day, but avoid downing a triple shot strong latte while you have got a bun in the oven. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Life mai sex partnar kitne hone chahiye. Sex karne ke bad muze bahut nind ati hai aisa q.

Life mai sex partnar kitne hone chahiye.
Sex karne ke bad muze bahut nind ati hai aisa q.
Dear lybrate user. Sex is always enjoyed if it is done with love, passion and affection. The love making time is important. It should be within 30 minutes. The more you try to extent it, the more you and your partner will be stressed and therefore the pleasure associated with orgasm will be simultaneously reduced. Therefore, limit the sexual performance to less than 30 minutes. Sex is energy consuming and your body needs proper rest and nutrition replenishment after every sex. Also keep in mind that you should provide 24 hours gap between two sexual intercourses. Sexual intercourse is not advised in the cases of stress, anxiety, physical fatigue, cough, cold etc... Take care.

Dear user. To TEST PREGNANCY AT HOME simply add urine to a small piece of soap, if froth forms, or if the soap bubbles up, the test is positive. Mix ¼ cup of tuna juice and ¼ cup of vinegar in a plastic cup. Now pee in a separate cup and then add your urine to this mixture. After a few minutes, if the color changes to green, then you are pregnant. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, I hope you are doing ok. I am sorry that your husband is having an affair, I can only imagine how you must be feeling. But pls remember that it's not your fault so don't blame yourself. People are unfaithful because of various reasons. The decision to go outside ones marriage is purely our own, we have to take responsibility for that. Having said that, how is he behaving now? Has he admitted to the affair? I would suggest that you have an honest conversation with him, about what this woman means to him, is she is the only woman he has been involved with post marriage etc? I would also suggest couples counselling, this will help you and him reach a decision about the marriage and help you resolve a lot of the things that may not be working in the marriage if you decide to stay together. For now, pls compose yourself, stay calm, deep breathe and think with a clear head. Instead of getting angry and focusing on the problem, focus on the solution. Hope things work out for you. All the best!

Urine Infection in Hindi - यूरिन इनफैक्शन

Urine Infection in Hindi - यूरिन इनफैक्शन

यूरिन इनफैक्शन को यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इनफैक्शन (यूटीआई) भी कहते हैं। ज्यादातर ये समस्या महिलाओं में पाई जाती है। ये समस्या वयस्कों की अपेक्षा बच्चों में ज्यादा देखी जाती है। वहीं अगर ये समस्या बच्चों को हो जाए तो ज्यादा गंभीर होती है। बच्चों में ये समस्या बिस्तर गीला करने की वजह से हो जाती है। अपने जीवनकाल में चालीस फीसदी महिलाओं और बारह फीसदी पुरुषों में ये समस्या देखी जा सकती है। गर्भवती महिलाओं में ये संक्रमण काफी सामान्य होता है। जब एक महिला बच्चे को जन्म देती है तो उसके प्रेग्नेंसी हॉर्मोन का विकास शरीर के अंदर होता है, और इसके फलस्वरूप उसके यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट में भी काफी परिवर्तन होते हैं। जैसे ही किसी महिला का गर्भाशय बढ़ता है, यह ब्लैडर पर अतिरिक्त दबाव डालने लगता है। इससे ब्लैडर से पूरी तरह मूत्र का निकलना संभव नहीं हो पाता है। जो मूत्र ब्लैडर के अंदर बच जाता है, उससे संक्रमण की प्रबल संभावना रहती है। । अगर आप इस इन्फेक्शन को शुरूआती चरणों में नहीं रोक पाती तो इससे किडनी में भी इन्फेक्शन की संभावना बढ़ जाती है।

ऐसे पहचानें यूरिन इनफैक्शन- यहां दिए गए कुछ लक्षणों से आप पहचान कर सकते हैं कि कहीं आप भी यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन के शिकार तो नहीं हो गए...

  • पेशाब करते वक्त जलन या दर्द होना
  • बार-बार पेशाब लगना
  • खुजली होना
  • बदबूदार पेशाब होना
  • पेशाब का कलर बदलना
  • पीठ के नीचे हिस्से में दर्द

यूरिन इनफैक्शन के कारण- यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन का सबसे बड़ा कारण कॉमन टायलेट का इस्तेमाल करना है। इसके अलावा पेशाब रोकना और पेशाब के बाद सफाई न रखने से भी इन्फैक्शन हो जाता है। बेहतर होगा कि टॉयलेट हमेशा साफ सुधरा रखें, पेशाब रोके नहीं और और पब्लिक कमोड का जितना हो सके कम इस्तेमाल करें। इसके अलावा अंडरगार्मेंट्स और प्राइवेट पाट्र्स की सफाई का भी ध्यान रखें। कभी-कभी सेक्स की वजह से भी बैक्टीरिया महिलाओं के मूत्रमार्ग में पहुंच जाते हैं।
यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन बैक्टीरिया से होता है। डॉक्टर इस बीमारी में एंटीबायोटिक देते हैं जिससे बैक्टीरिया में प्रतिरोधक क्षमता आ जाती है जिससे दवाएं बेअसर होने लगती हैं। यहां दिए गए ये घरेलू उपाय अपनाकर इस समस्या का निदान किया जा सकता है।

अपनाएं ये घरेलू उपाय
ज्यादा से ज्यादा तरल पदार्थों का सेवन करें- पूरे दिन में ज्यादा से ज्यादा तरल पदार्थ लेने से आपके सिस्टम से बैक्टीरिया बाहर होते हैं। तांबे के बर्तन में रातभर पानी रखकर पिएं। तांबे में कीटाणुनाशक गुण होते हैं। ये आपके शरीर से बैक्टीरिया दूर करता है।

1. अनानास-
अनानास में बेहतरीन एंटी बायोटिक गुण होते हैं, जो कि यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट का इन्फेक्शन दूर करने में काफी प्रभावी होते हैं। अनानास में ब्रोमेलेन नाम का एंजाइम होता है, जो कि यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट के इन्फेक्शन को आसानी से दूर कर देता है। आप या तो नाश्ते में, या फिर दोपहर के खाने के बाद अनानास का फल के रूप में सेवन कर सकती हैं। आप इसे ग्राइंडर में डालकर इसका रस निकालकर पी सकती हैं।

2. बेकिंग सोडा- बेकिंग सोडा शरीर में एसिड और बेस को संतुलित रखता है। यूरिन इन्फैक्शन के लक्षण दिखें तो एक गिलास पानी या दूध में आधा चम्मच बेकिंग सोडा मिलाकर दो बार पिएं।

3.प्याज- प्याज शरीर से टॉक्सिन बाहर करता है। यूरिन इन्फैक्शन होने पर प्याज का सेवन दोनों टाइम सलाद के रूप में करें।

4. छाछ- छाछ शरीर से बैक्टीरिया बाहर निकालने के साथ यूरिन इन्फैक्शन के दौरान होने वाली जलन को भी दूर करता है।

5. करौंदे का जूस-  यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फैक्शन में करौंदे के जूस को अचूक उपाय माना जाता है। आपको करौंदा पसंद हो तो उसे कच्चा भी खा सकते हैं। इसका जूस निकालकर इसमें सेब का जूस मिलाकर पीने से इनफैक्शन में काफी राहत मिलती है।

6. हरी इलायची-  यूरिनरी इन्फैक्शन के दौरान मूत्रमार्ग पर बेहद जलन होती है। इसके उपचार के लिए ठंडे दूध के साथ इलायची का पाउडर लें। इसके अलावा कच्ची इलायची भी खाने के बाद खा सकते हैं।

7. ब्लूबेरी-  ब्लूबेरी में  बैक्टीरिया को पूरी तरह नष्ट करने के गुण होते हैं। हाल में ही हुए एक शोध के अनुसार ब्लूबेरी का रस गर्भवती महिलाओं में यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट का इन्फेक्शन रोकने में मदद करता है। आप सुबह के नाश्ते में भी इस फल का रस के रूप में सेवन कर सकती हैं।

8. सिट्रस फ्रूट या खट्टे फल खाएं- सिट्रस फ्रूट जैसे, नींबू, संतरा, आंवला और मौसमी जैसे फलों में मौजूद साइट्रिक एसिड यूरिन में इनफैक्शन क्रिएट करने वाले बैक्टीरिया को नष्ट करता है।

Skin Tightening: 5 Effective Treatment for Ageing Skin!

Dermatologist, Delhi
Skin Tightening: 5 Effective Treatment for Ageing Skin!

Aging is a natural process determined by genetic and environmental factors, such as the effect of UV radiation, smoking, unbalanced diet, lack of sleep, etc. It represents a set of physical, psychological and social changes that occur in the human body over time.

People have intervened in the process, trying to look as young as possible. This need has created a special branch of medicine, called cosmetic dermatology, which involves the application of therapies to enhance a person’s image by offering them a younger look. Smoothing out laughter lines and wrinkles caused naturally by ageing or sun exposure, has never been quicker or easier.

Injectable anti ageing treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out those lines on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth without any need for surgery. So, here we have come up with a list of 5 super-effective anti-aging treatments:

  1. Botox Injections- A highly purified protein when injected into a specific area of skin by skin specialist, it makes the muscles relax so not to be able to create muscular movement and wrinkles. The effect may take up to 3-5 days for the maximum effect to be apparent where the area becomes smooth and relaxed and wrinkle free. Botox removes and smooths out areas where you have wrinkles to create a fresh and youthful look. The effects of smoothing the muscle do not allow the wrinkle to form as deeply as it would with constant muscle movement so more people are having it to reduce wrinkles forming as well as smoothing out existing ones.
  2. Fillers- Fillers are popular treatments used for softening wrinkles, laughter lines, facial lines and wrinkles caused naturally by ageing or sun exposure. Combined with a local anaesthetic, dermal fillers are injected into the skin to give your face a natural volume, leaving your skin completely hydrated and youthful. Popular areas to add volume and fullness to include the lips, cheeks and bridge of the nose. For smoothing and plumping lines and wrinkles, popular treatment areas include around the forehead, eyes, mouth, chin, neck, décolletage and hands.
  3. Thread lift- The purpose of PDO threads is to lift the skin. They are ideal for treating sagging skin on neck, face contour, and cheeks. They may also be used on the body for thigh lifting and buttocks lifting and to tighten the skin on the abdomen and arms. Without a doubt, PDO threads are one of the top anti-aging treatments.
  4. RF Skin Tightening- This procedure, which is relatively new, is a non-surgical option for people who want to treat wrinkles, sagging, and other signs of aging. Radio frequency skin tightening is performed by dermatologists and skin care clinics, and uses radio frequency (RF) energy on the skin of the face, heating up the various skin layers to stimulate collagen production, which smoothes and lifts the skin’s surface. This procedure requires no incisions to be made in the skin and has a low instance of side effects. Radio frequency skin tightening is a viable procedure for many people whose skin has not reacted favorably to laser or thermal treatments in the past.
  5. HIFU Face and Neck Lift- High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound also known as ‘3D SkinMed’, ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’ has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for face and neck. 3D SkinMed is a one-off treatment which will help you achieve tighter, firmer, lifted skin!  The key advantages of this treatment are:
    • Stimulates natural collagen production
    • No cuts to the skin
    • No recovery time
    • Noticeable results

Apart from good diet and exercise, cosmetic treatments can do wonders.

Postural Tachycardia Syndrome - All You Need To Know About It?

Postural Tachycardia Syndrome - All You Need To Know About It?

Postural Tachycardia Syndrome or POTS, what this condition entails is a sudden and abnormal increase in the heart beat of an individual, causing them difficulty in breathing, dizziness, and even blackouts.
There are some factors that can trigger the situation and stem the sudden rise in the heart beat. Meeting with a medical expert may help bring the situation under control.

What is Postural Tachycardia Syndrome?
Postural Tachycardia Syndrome or POTS is a cardiovascular condition that is caused due to the sudden shift from an upright position to a supine position or vice versa. It is this sudden increase in heartbeat of an individual that is referred to as Tachycardia.

The longer you overlook this condition, the bigger is the trouble you are putting your health in. This is when it becomes extremely important for you to get in touch with a medical expert, who can offer you perfect consultancy, diagnose the causes and also find a result for the same.

What Causes POTS?
According to medical specialists, there are some factors that this condition stems from and it all differs from one person to the other. Some of the most common causes of the condition are-

  1. Joint Hypermobility Syndrome
  2. Faulty Gene
  3. Poisoning
  4. Amyloidosis
  5. Lupus
  6. Diabetes
  7. Sarcoidosis
  8. Siogren’s Syndrome
  9. Cancer

Signs of Postural Tachycardia Syndrome:
There are multiple signs that indicate that an individual is stricken by Postural Tachycardia Syndrome. Some of the more common signs and symptoms include:

  1. Orthostatic Hypotension: Orthostatic Hypotension refers to the sudden increase in the heart beat by at least 30 beats per minute, within or after 10 minutes of rising up from a sitting or lying down position. Though the condition increases the heart rate, it does not trigger any drop or rise in blood pressure. Certain medications used to diminish this effect often extend some side effects, such as lightheadedness, palpitation, difficulty to breath, discomfort in the chest, weakness, heaviness in the chest area, nausea, cognitive difficulties and also stain on the vision.
  2. Effects in Response to Postural Change: Almost one-third of the people with Postural Tachycardia Syndrome are noticed to faint as a result of the increased heartbeat, almost 40 beats minutes, instead of the chance in postural position. Other symptoms under this head include a headache, migraine, disturbance in sleep, fatigue, acrocyanosis or blood pooling in feet, etc.
  3. Ehlers- Danlos Syndrome (EDS): Sometimes POTS is found to coexist in an individual with other conditions, such as EDS. This condition makes an individual prone to dislocation of bones, greater laxity in skin, loose- clicking joints, chronic fatigue, reduced level of tolerance towards any exercise, etc. According to medical specialists, though these are common symptoms of POTS, there might also be other signs. These signs and symptoms differ from one person to the other.

When Should You Consult a Doctor?
The moment you experience a POTS attack or for that matter notice some of the symptoms of the condition, it is time for you to consult a medical expert. The doctor will give you valued consultation, as well as diagnose the condition properly, thus finding the best treatment and suitable medication for you.
