Diabetes In Women - Because It's Your Right To A Healthy Future!

Diabetes In Women - Because It's Your Right To A Healthy Future!

The disease itself may not discriminate on the gender basis, but when it comes to healthcare for patients with diabetes, women find themselves at a disadvantage as compared to men. Studies indicate that diabetes, a disease that affects over 371 million people worldwide takes a greater toll on women than men. Though, hormones in women do account for some of the unique challenges they have to face, but there are other societal factors as well that bring in the differences.

This World Diabetes Day is about promoting the significance of affordable care for diabetes and equitable access for all women at risk or living with diabetes to essential medicines, technological information and self-management education they require and achieve an optimal outcome to strengthen their adequacy to prevent type-2 diabetes. Because it's your right to a healthy and disease-free future!

So, how will you know if you are suffering from this deadly disease – Diabetes?

Symptoms

Women with diabetes experience many of the same symptoms as that of men. However, there are some that are specific to women.

Symptoms experienced by both women and men:

Symptoms unique to women:

Diabetes is the ninth leading cause of death in women globally, causing 2.1 million deaths each year. Two out of every five women suffering from diabetes are of reproductive age. Women with diabetes have more difficulty conceiving and may have poor pregnancy outcomes.

Diabetes and Pregnancy

The affect of Diabetes, in a pregnancy, will not be great, if controlled properly. Women with diabetes should talk to their gynaecologists while planning to conceive so that they can control their blood sugar levels even before getting pregnant. Your gynaecologist will help you control and monitor your diabetes and blood sugar levels during pregnancy.

And, if you fail to get your blood sugar levels under control during pregnancy, you may experience severe risks:

  1. Miscarriage

  2. Premature delivery

  3. Difficult delivery or cesarean section (C-section)

  4. Birth defects

  5. Having a large baby

  6. Preeclampsia (high blood pressure usually with protein in the urine)

  7. Low blood glucose in a newborn

  8. Breathing problems in the newborn

  9. Yellowing skin and eyes (jaundice) in a newborn

  10. Worsening diabetic eye problems and kidney problems for the mother

  11. Urinary or bladder infections

What is Gestational Diabetes?

When diabetes occurs in women during pregnancy, it is called gestational diabetes. It is usually diagnosed at the first week of pregnancy. Like in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, blood sugar levels become too high. When a woman is pregnant, more glucose is required to nourish the baby developing inside her womb. During this time, the body needs additional insulin, which is produced by the pancreas. In some women, the body does not produce enough insulin to meet this need, and blood sugar levels rise, resulting in gestational diabetes. 

Fortunately, for most women, gestational diabetes will go away once the baby is delivered. However, women who have had gestational diabetes are at increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Further, people suffering from PTSD are at higher risk and should consult their doctors immediately and those who are presently affected with Diabetes should consult for pre-conception consultation.

Risk Factors for Diabetes in Women

You are at risk for type-2 diabetes if you:

  1. are overweight or obese

  2. are older than 45

  3. have a family history of diabetes (parent or sibling)

  4. have had gestational diabetes

  5. have had a baby with a birth weight of more than 9 pounds

  6. have high blood pressure

  7. have high cholesterol

  8. have other health conditions that are linked to problems using insulin, such as PCOS

Diabetes Treatment Options

Medications

There are various medications you can take to control the symptoms of diabetes. These include:

  1. Insulin therapy

  2. Sulfonylureas like chlorpropamide, which increase pancreatic insulin secretion

  3. Metformin (Glucophage), which reduces blood sugar

Lifestyle changes

A change in your diet and lifestyle can also help women control their diabetes

  1. Exercise and maintain a healthy weight

  2. Monitor your blood sugar

  3. Eat a diet focused on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains

  4. Strictly avoid smoking cigarettes

Alternative remedies

Women with diabetes can try other alternative remedies to treat the symptoms, such as 

  1. Eat more broccoli, buckwheat, sage, peas, and fenugreek seeds

  2. Take supplements like chromium or magnesium

  3. Take plant supplements

But, always remember to consult with your doctor before trying any new treatment. Even if they are natural, they can intrude with your on-going treatment or medications. So, this World Diabetes Day, take a pledge towards healthy living, because your health is important to someone else!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

No heavy workouts especially the ones you mentioned as uterus is a sensitive organ especially the stitch line after C section. Instead you may go for brisk walks, and breathing exercises. Basically you just need your BMR to be maintained so as to keep your weight under check, and for that brisk walk is good enough. Yoga can be done too. And a balanced diet which is low in fat and carbs is all you should do.

Bael Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - बेल के फायदे और नुकसान

Bael Benefits and Side Effects in Hindi - बेल के फायदे और नुकसान

बेल फल, वास्तविकता में, लिमोनिया एसिडिसिमा नाम की एक जड़ी बूटी है। यह भारत के मूल है, हालांकि, वर्तमान में यह दक्षिण-पूर्व एशिया भर में पाया जाता है। व्यापक रूप से थाईलैंड, श्रीलंका और दक्षिणी एशिया के अन्य क्षेत्रों में इसकी खेती की जाती है। बेल फल के कई अन्य नाम हैं जैसे वुड एपल, बंगाल क्विन्स, एलिफेंट एपल और मंकी फ्रूट। भारत के विभिन्न हिस्सों में हिंदू भगवान शिव की धार्मिक पूजा में इसके उपयोग के लिए प्रसिद्ध है।
 

बेल के लाभ
बेल के सबसे लोकप्रिय उपयोगों में से एक शर्बत बनाना है। इस फल में कई औषधीय लाभ भी हैं, जैसे कि:
1. पाचन के लिए: 
यह आंत में कीड़े को नष्ट करने में मदद करता है, और पाचन विकारों के लिए एक अच्छा उपाय है। इसमें 'फेरोनो गम' नामक एक पदार्थ होता है जिसका उपयोग दस्त और पेचिश के इलाज के लिए किया जाता है। पेट के अल्सर या बवासीर वाले लोगों के लिए भी बेल की सिफारिश की जाती है, क्योंकि इसमे मौजूद टनीन सूजन को कम करने के लिए जाना जाता है। बेल की रेचक संपत्ति कब्ज से बचने में मदद करती है और उस स्थिति के बाद के दर्द, असुविधा और जुड़े स्वास्थ्य जोखिमों में मदद भी करती है।
2. रक्त के लिए: रक्त की शुद्धता और शरीर को नुकसान पहुँचाने वाले हानिकारक विषाक्त पदार्थों को निकालने के लिए बेल की सिफारिश की जाती है। यह रक्त में कोलेस्ट्रॉल स्तर को बनाए रखने में भी मदद करता है। बेल के पत्ते में फाइटोन्यूट्रिएंट्स होते हैं जिनमें रक्तचाप को बनाए रखने की क्षमता होती है। इसमें रेचक गुण है जो अग्न्याशय और इंसुलिन स्राव के कार्यों को नियंत्रित करके रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को प्रबंधित करने में मदद करते हैं। इसका शरीर पर हाइपोग्लाइकेमिक प्रभाव होता है और ग्लूकोज उपयोग और उत्तेजक इंसुलिन हार्मोन बढ़ाकर रक्त ग्लूकोज के स्तर को कम करता है।
3. मधुमेह रोगियों के लिए: 'फेरोनिया गम', जो पेड़ों के तने और शाखाओं में पाया जाता है, स्थिति की गंभीरता को कम करके मधुमेह से मुकाबला करता है और खून के प्रवाह, स्राव और शर्करा के संतुलन को प्रबंधित करने में मदद करता है।
4. स्कर्वी रोकता है: स्कर्वी, शरीर में विटामिन सी की कमी के कारण होता है। बेल विटामिन सी का एक समृद्ध स्रोत है।
5. श्वसन समस्याओं के लिए: बेल पेड़ के पत्ते लोगों को चिरकाली या आवर्ती जुकाम और संबंधित श्वसन की स्थिति से बचने में सहायता करते हैं। एक कफोत्सारक के रूप में कार्य करने के कारण, यह गले में खराश, ब्रोंकाइटिस, इन्फ्लूएंजा और अस्थमा का इलाज करने में भी मदद करता है।
6. ऊर्जा को बढ़ावा देने के लिए: बेल पल्प का सौ ग्राम 140 कैलोरी प्रदान करता है। इसके अलावा, उसमें मौजूद पोषक तत्व अंग गतिविधि और चयापचय गति को बढ़ावा देते हैं। उच्च प्रोटीन सामग्री शरीर को तेजी से ठीक करने और मांसपेशियों को मजबूत करने में मदद करती है।
7. स्वस्थ जिगर के लिए: बीटा-कैरोटीन का अच्छा स्रोत होने के कारण, बेल जिगर की समस्याओं का इलाज भी करते हैं। इसमें थाइमिन और रिबोफ़्लिविन होते हैं, दोनों को जिगर स्वास्थ्य बूस्टर के रूप में जाना जाता है।
8. गर्भावस्था के दौरान: गर्भावस्था के दौरान, चीनी के साथ कच्चे बेल का पल्प खाने से मॉर्निंग सिकनेस से राहत मिलती है। 
9. त्वचा के लिए: जीरा, बेल का रस और तेज पत्ते का रस दिन में दो बार पीने से पित्ती का इलाज करने में सहायता मिलती है। बेल त्वचा की चकत्ते, त्वचीलागो (त्वचा पर सफेद पैच), लालिमा, खुजली आदि त्वचा की समस्याओं को ठीक करने में मदद करता है।
 

बेल के दुष्प्रभाव
पोषण संबंधी स्वास्थ्य लाभ और औषधीय लाभ होने के बावजूद, बेल खाने में कुछ सावधानी बरतने की आवश्यकता भी होती है क्योंकि इससे कुछ दुष्प्रभाव और नुकसान हो सकते हैं।
1. अत्यधिक खपत से पेट में दर्द, सूजन, पेट फूलना, पेट परेशान, कब्ज और अन्य पाचन विकार हो सकते हैं।
2. यह गैस्ट्रिक मुसीबतों से पीड़ित लोगों द्वारा टाला जाना चाहिए।
3. बिना किसी ब्रेक के लगातार रोज़ाना लेने पर आंतों की पिस्टलास्टिक आंदोलनों को परेशान कर सकता है। बेल के पत्तों में टैनिन होते हैं, जो लंबे समय तक उपयोग करने पर कार्सिनजनिक प्रभाव डालते हैं और गर्भवती महिलाओं में गर्भपात कर सकते हैं।

Irregular cycles are normal. They tend to occur irregularly due to fluctuations in hormonal status of the body. It may also happen in some diseases like thyroid disorders, ovulation disorders etc post marriage too the irregularity may persist in few. This is not abnormal. If you both are concerned, meet a local gynecologist. The treatment of irregular menses is dependent on many factors: whetehr you want to conceive or want to avoid pregnancy. From your query it seems that you are trying for a pregnancy. If you are having regular sexual activity, then you can give your self a whole year to conceive. If you do not conceive in a year, after regular sexual activity, then you may consult a gynecologist for helping you achieve a pregnancy. You may get your wife investigated for her irregular cycles by doing blood tests, hormone tests and sonography and get treated as per the reports.

Sexologist, Narnaul
Hello Dear,Periods occur when the egg formed during each menstrual cycle in the female body is not fertilized and hence ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and several other tissue cells. The duration of each menstrual cycle is about 28 days Most women will experience their monthly period right from the time they are 13 to the time they are 50. For many women, their monthly period is nothing more than an annoyance; but other women may suffer some problems. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

Dear User Your Last menses was on 16 December 2017 and according to you you menses due on 19/January 2018 and had unprotected sex but your male partner ejaculate outside Medical sex on safe days cannot make you pregnant even if your partner ejaculate inside of you. So it's not possible to be pregnant on the above mentioned date. But still if you have problems do a urine pregnancy test in pathology laboratory and not by your self Accordingly you can meet the doctors for further if you so desire with the reports. Hopefully your questions is answered.
