Causes and Treatment of Dysphagia

MS - ENT, DNB (ENT)
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Causes and Treatment of Dysphagia

Ever had tempting food calling out to you, but could not to swallow it? This could be a serious medical condition and should not be taken lightly. Sometimes, certain disorders in the throat or the esophagus culminate in acute difficulties in swallowing. Commonly termed dysphagia, this disease is directly linked to some sort of a neuro cardiac abnormality. Dysphagia is commonly noted in babies and aged people or in other words in those age groups whose immunity systems are not necessarily strong. Occasional troubles in swallowing can go unnoticed and may not necessarily raise the alarm, but if this condition prevails for a comparatively long period of time, then one really needs to get themselves checked.

Some of the most prominent causes of dysphagia have been enlisted below:

  • Muscular and nervous dysfunctions: On certain occasions, the nerves and the muscles that are responsible for transporting food through the food pipe may not be functioning properly. As a consequence of which, food particles find it difficult to navigate through the esophagus and reach the stomach. Such a condition may be spurred by a stroke or nervous diseases like Parkinson's, sclerosis or dystrophy. A weak immunity system, leading to an inflammation and thus narrowing of the esophageal walls may also cause such a disease.
  • Gastronomical distresses: Ulcers or inflammation of the food pipe due to some gastroenteric disorders is also a cause of dysphagia. Such a condition may arise out of innocuous situations like an allergic reaction or on account of more chronic medical distresses like cancers and tumors. 
  • Dryness inside the mouth: The saliva in the mouth helps in debilitating the food particles into digestible form.  However, due to some kind of a hormonal imbalance, if there isn't adequate saliva formation, it becomes a task to swallow the food and results in dysphagia. 

With timely diagnosis, dysphagia can be treated effectively. Treating dysphagia usually involves a few clinical methods as well as a few lifestyle changes.  Certain specialists advice exercising the throat muscles that can possibly ease out swallowing while others recommend specific changes in the diet for the same. Surgical procedures involve dilation and endoscopy which clears out the surface area of the esophagus as a result of which heals dysphagia to a great extent.

Hello,
Green tea is an antioxidant and helps in
Metabolism. If your main goal is to lose weight, then the best way is to drink it regularly.

It is important to know that green tea alone will not help in weight loss alone. You have to combine other weight loss techniques like proper dieting and exercising. Green tea is yet effective for losing weight, but its process is very slow. Daily consumption should be 4 cups on an average.

Side effects:
Irritability, insomnia, heart palpitations, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, and loss of appetite.
Take care.

Hello respected doctors. My cousin had Papp-a less during 1st trimester. Now her baby is 8months old but she is lean....
Bring on some spices (8 months old) And softly mashed, or chopped into fine pieces, fruits, vegetables, meats, pasta and dairy such as yogurt and cheeses. Pasta, veggies, and fruit should all be soft cooked and possibly mashed with a fork or masher. (Bananas need only be mashed.) Meats and proteins such as egg yolk, should be cooked and pureed or chopped into small soft bits. If offering Tofu, you need not cook it first. Remember, your baby will not have molars until sometime around the 12-18 month age range so all foods should be easily mashed between the gums. How much will your 8 month – 10 month old baby eat? Your 8 to 10 month old baby may seem to be starving herself at some point. Because you are likely offering her more finger food selections or thicker/chunkier foods, the amount of food eaten appears smaller. At this stage, your baby may be eating 3 “meals” a day and possibly enjoying a snack or 2 in between. There are some babies in this age range who will still be eating only 1 “meal” of solids so don’t feel pressured to have your baby eat 3 solid food meals per day. The important thing is to watch your baby’s hunger cues and and try to begin setting a schedule for 3 meals a day. Offer him a balanced array of foods – fruits, veggies, a protein & a grain if possible and ensure his nursing or formula feedings are adequate. Visit the Baby Menu to see an idea of some meals for this age range. What to Eat at 8 to 10 Months of Age? AGE/STAGE – 8 months – 10 months old The AAP recommends that an infant not be started on solid foods until after 6 months of age. Many pediatricians still start babies on solids around 4 months of age. This chart accommodates all ages and stages up to 12 months. CEREALS Try mixing together the grains that your baby has had without any reaction (s). Begin offering breads and muffins when baby has mastered mashing more textured foods. Pasta makes for great finger foods. FRUITS Begin making your own fruit combinations once baby has had several fruits without any reaction (s). Venture into Papaya and Melon Swirl. After 8 months old – you may wish to try offering raw ripe fruits. Soft cooked fruits make for great beginner Baby Finger Foods. VEGGIES Soft cooked veggies make for great beginner Baby Finger Foods. Try mixing up a veggie medley now. Add some grated cheese for extra temptation & yumminess. Saute or roast some onions or peppers to add to baby’s food or serve as finger foods. Make a Leek and Chicken Potato Mash. PROTEIN Once your baby has reached 8 months old, try an Egg Yolk Omelet – the perfect chance to slip in some veggies. DAIRY Get adventurous with Cheeses and Yogurts now. Soft Cheeses such as Brie pose health risks so hold off on those. Avocado mashed with a bit of cream cheese – YUM. Breakfast ¼ – ½ cup cereal or mashed egg ¼ – ½ cup fruit, diced (if your child is self- feeding) 4–6 oz. Formula or breastmilk Snack​ 4–6 oz. Breastmilk or formula or water ¼ cup diced cheese or cooked vegetables Lunch ¼ – ½ cup yogurt or cottage cheese or meat ¼ – ½ cup yellow or orange vegetables 4–6 oz. Formula or breastmilk Snack 1 teething biscuit or cracker ¼ cup yogurt or diced (if child is self-feeding) fruit Water Dinner ¼ cup diced poultry, meat, or tofu ¼ – ½ cup green vegetables ¼ cup noodles, pasta, rice, or potato ¼ cup fruit 4–6 oz. Formula or breastmilk Before Bedtime 6–8 oz. Formula or breastmilk or water (If formula or breastmilk, follow with water or brush teeth afterward).

IVF - What is the Prognosis for it?

Health and Medical ARC Fertility
IVF Specialist, Chennai
IVF - What is the Prognosis for it?

In case the fertility odds are against your favour, you can undergo a procedure called IVF or in vitro fertilisation. It is a form of fertility treatment in which the sperms and eggs are combined in a laboratory. IVF is a very common fertility treatment procedure, involving modern technology. It is carried out by many women and couples worldwide. When you are facing ovulation problems and issues with the quality of eggs, have blocked fallopian tubes or if your male partner has a low sperm count, a sperm donor’s eggs are used via IVF to become pregnant.

The overall process of IVF involves several methods and steps:

  1. Ovarian stimulation: You will have to take a fertility drug called gonadotrophin eight to fourteen days before the beginning of your menstrual cycle. This will help to stimulate your ovaries for the development of multiple, mature eggs for fertilisation. You will also be given synthetic hormones like cetrorelix and leuprolide.
  2. Development of follicle: You should be visiting your doctor frequently while having the medicines for a check-up of your blood hormone levels. Your ovaries will also be measured using ultrasound. This will allow the doctor to monitor the follicle development.
  3. Trigger shot: You will be given a trigger shot injection when the follicles are prepared. This injection leads to full maturation of the eggs, making them ready for fertilisation. The eggs require a period of 36 hours for retrieval after receiving the trigger shot.
  4. Gathering of the eggs: An anesthetic will be given to you and an ultrasound probe will be inserted via your vagina for observation of the ovaries and follicles. A thin needle will be inserted through the vaginal wall with which the eggs are removed from the follicles.
  5. Fertilisation: The eggs will be observed one final time before being combined with your partner’s sperm. Then they will be incubated overnight. Fertilisation occurs during this period and the abnormal eggs do not get fertilised. Three days after the egg retrieval, some of the successfully fertilised eggs transform into embryos composed of six to ten cells. Within five days, some of these embryos turn into blastocysts composed of fluid-filled cavities and tissue. This separates into the baby and the placenta. The most viable embryos are placed in your uterus. One to five embryos are placed in your uterus by the insertion of a catheter through the cervix. The embryo implants itself to the uterus walls. Gradually, it develops into the baby. The chances of pregnancy are higher when there are multiple embryos.

Before thinking of undergoing IVF, you must consult a doctor to know about the entire process. You also need to know whether you are fit to undergo IVF as there are several criteria you should satisfy for IVF.

I have 2 months of pregnancy and I have to do abortion of my pregnancy please give me a suggestion and I have not yet married.

Gynaecologist,
I have 2 months of pregnancy and I have to do abortion of my pregnancy please give me a suggestion and I have not yet...
Your age is not mentioned, but if it is less than 18, then it would be better to confide in your parents, and approach a government mtp center and get an abortion done, with parents consent, which is mandatory by law if you are above 18, and have confirmed your pregnancy then too, you can seek abortion from a abortion center where they will do necessary tests and then give you the choices for abortion. Abortion is a simple procedure which if done by specialists, causes elast damage to your body. If the same abortion is done by those who are quacks and not qualified to do abortion, then it may cause damage to your body and prevent your chances of having a child in future, so be bold and approach the right abortion center. Abortion is done by 2 methods, if pregnancy is less than 3 months. 1. By taking tablets: these tablets are not available in medical stores, and they are usually distributed only by qualified doctors. In this method a doctor gives you tablets on 2 days and then you have to wait for the bleeding to occur. The tablets cause the abortion and throw out the baby along with the blood. This bleeding may be like a heavy menses and it may last for a few days. In some the bleeding may be huge or for more days and hence the patient may get giddiness or seek an" emergency abortion" in the hospitals. This will lead to extra expenses. While medical abortion is safe, there could be: 1. Excess bleeding 2. Incomplete abortion 3. Infection 4. Need for an emergency surgery to complete the abortion 5. It may fail and pregnancy may continue in some 2. Surgical abortion: here the patient goes to the abortion center, gets examined and is scheduled for an abortion at a date. On the day of abortion the patient is asked to come to hospital without food and water for 6 hours she is given injections to prepare her and to make her anesthetised and then the uterus is cleaned of it's pregnancy contents using some instruments. After waiting for observation the patient is discharged, with antibiotics and painkillers advantages of surgical abortion are: 1. Its swift 2. Its mostly complete 3. It finishes the abortion in a half a day, so patient is free to resume her work 4. It is done under anesthesia so the patient doesnot feel the pain of the abortion 5. Bleeding is less than medical abortion as the gynecologist who does it can use medicines to tackle any extra bleeding. So choose wisely do not go to quacks for abortion the government of india had a mtp law according to which only 1. Qualified gynecologist. I md, dgo, Ms. (gynecologists) 2. Trained mbbs doctors can do the abortion. All other doctors are not allowed to do it!
