Hai. I am having type 2 diabetes for past 2 months. My age is 22. Is there any possibility to get pregnant.
If you are keen having a child, then it is possible. Only thing is before you decide on getting conceived you will have to achieve very strict blood sugar control. Hence before conceiving start on insulin injection and continue on the same through out the pregnancy. Also get your eyes examined for retinal involvement before and during pregnancy. It is absolutely essential. During pregnancy blood sugar levels have to be maintained between 90 to 120 mg through out the day. So you will have to be under the care of en expert diabetologist along with your gynecologist.

Chronic stress is associated with most chronic diseases. You have mentitled about your anxiety. I am not sure if you are doing any kind of exercise on a regular basis. Regular exercise will surely help you wit anxiety. If need be you may consult a counselor and learn few techniques to manage and overcome anxiety. This will enhance your quality of life. Also your hdl cholesterol which is a good cholesterol is relatively low. May be because you don't exercise regularly. You are quiet young. Start regular exercise Join gym or go for run or even sport like football or tennis badminton would be good. Exercise will help you wit anxiety. It will increase your good cholesterol. It will also increase your overall energy level. Which will help.you produce better result. Only good things will come out of it. Remember that our best friend and worst enemy is our own mind. If you keep worrying it will effect you adversely. And instead of worrying if you take positive actions yoh will have positive outcome. Hope this helps Wishing you very best

1. Protein is the key for the muscle building. Without adequate protein, muscle gain and growth is not possible because weight training demands for amino acids (which comes from protein). You should daily eat about 2.2g of protein per kilogram of your weight. For example, if you are 50kg, then you should eat 50x2.2=111g of protein spread over 5-6 meals in the day. Include high protein foods in your diet. Your protein intake should be from foods rather than from supplements. Good protein foods: beans, soybeans, whey, fish, dairy products (low fat variety), meats, nuts and seeds (almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds), peanut butter. Many of these are easy digestible foods. Milk is one of the best muscle foods. The milk contains two high quality proteins, about 80 percent whey and 20 percent casein. Whey is quickly broken down into amino acids and absorbed into the bloodstream. Whey is very good to consume after workout. Casein is digested more slowly and provides the body with a steady supply of protein for a longer period of time. Cheese is concentrated milk, so it is high in protein and calcium, fat and cholesterol. Include healthy skim yogurt in your diet, which can give you as much as 120 calories.----------- 2. Eat custard apple (saripa, sitaphal) to put on some weight. This fruit is high in calorie.------------- 3. Healthy fats: avoid fatty foods. Most mothers, especially in india give too much ghee or butter to their children, thinking they will put flesh fast. But ghee is mostly saturated fat which is not a healthy fat for any body. Healthy fats are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. Good fats: cold pressed oils (olive, sunflower, linseed, canola).---------- 4. Drink pure fruit juice. It is full of sugar and added nutrients so it is a healthy and nutritious way to gain some pounds.----------- 5. Complex carbohydrates are also needed for gaining weight. Corn bread is also full of carbohydrates, one piece gives approximately 328 calories. Potatoes are rich sources of carbohydrates and complex sugars, eat baked or as grilled potatoes. Pasta is a calorie rich cereal carbohydrates.----------- 6. Eat bananas. These are rich in carbs and nutritious, one banana contains approximately 100 calories.---------- 7. Some people think that drinking beer helps, but it is not true, it accumulates in your abdomen, making it fatty.---------- 8. Don't take protein supplements for gaining muscles. ------------------------ 9. Non vegetarian foods--------- some of the non-vegetarian foods that help increase weight are given below:---- 1. Red meat ------ 2. Pork, ------ 3. Fish: eat two portions of salmon, or tuna every day.------- 4. Shrimps: the nutrients and necessary acid content present in shrimps gives healthy calories.- 5. Chicken breast chicken breast, is supposed to be the healthiest and non-fat part which has approximately 78 calories for each serving.-------- 6. Whole eggs: eggs are loaded with protein, vitamins a, d and e.--------

Essential Tremor

Essential tremor is when you have uncontrolled shaking movements in parts of your body - most commonly the arms and hands. It is more common with increasing age. It tends to occur in families. It is mild in some people but can become severe and disruptive to daily activities in others. There is good treatment available in the form of medication and occasionally surgery.

What is tremor?
A tremor is a repetitive movement of a part of the body. It is involuntary. This means that it is generally not controllable and happens without you deciding to move that body part. It is often felt as a trembling or shaking sensation.

A slight tremor is present in all people. That is called physiological tremor. It may not be noticeable. Certain things will make a physiological tremor more noticeable such as caffeine (in coffee, tea and cola), anxiety or tiredness.

What is essential tremor?
Essential tremor is also called familial essential tremor. It is different from physiological tremor described above. It usually starts in the hands and arms. It can sometimes become quite severe so that everyday activities like holding a cup can be difficult. The tremor is usually not there at rest but becomes noticeable when the affected body part is held in a position, or with movement.

The term 'essential' means that there is no associated disease that causes the tremor.

What causes essential tremor?
Essential tremor is known to be familial condition, meaning that it runs in families. At least 5-7 out of 10 people with essential tremor have other members of the family with the same condition. Genes are passed on to a child from each parent and determine what we look like, how our body functions and even what diseases we get. Particular genes have been shown to have certain changes present in families with essential tremor.

It is not clearly understood how this genetic change leads to essential tremor. However, it is likely that it somehow affects some parts of the brain that are responsible for controlling movement.

Who has essential tremor?
Studies have shown different rates of essential tremor. Some have shown it to be present in 3 in 1,000 people, whereas other studies have shown it may affect as many as 5 in 100 people. It is equally common in men and women and is more common with increasing age. Most people who develop essential tremor are aged over 35, but it can occur in younger people.

What are the symptoms?
The only symptom in essential tremor is tremor. If you have other symptoms, then you may have a different condition. (For example, tremor can be a symptom of various conditions such as Parkinson's disease. In these other conditions, tremor is just one of several other symptoms.)

In essential tremor, the tremor usually begins in one arm or hand. Within 1-2 years, the other arm is likely to be affected. Very occasionally, it may also spread to involve the legs. Three in ten people with essential tremor have a tremor of the head. The voice, jaw or face may also be involved.

At first, the tremor may not be present all the time. Eventually it will be present all the time when the affected body part is held in a position or with certain movements. It may be worse with stress, tiredness, hunger or certain emotions such as anger. Extremes in temperature may also make the tremor more severe.

You may be able to control the tremor to an extent. It may be less noticeable when you are working with the affected body part. For example, when you use your hand the tremor may ease off. It is not present when you are resting or sleeping.

Up to 7 in 10 people with essential tremor find that the tremor reduces after drinking some alcohol.

How is essential tremor diagnosed?
There is no test to diagnose essential tremor. Your doctor can usually diagnose essential tremor based on your explanation of the tremor and an examination. It is important for the doctor to make sure that there are no other conditions present that are causing tremor. In some cases, this may mean that you need to have some tests to rule out other conditions. For example, blood tests or a brain scan. You may also be referred to a neurologist (a doctor with a special interest and expertise in the brain and nerves).

Other conditions that can cause tremor and need to be ruled out include: a side-effect from some prescribed medicines, anxiety, caffeine, some poisons, kidney and liver disease, thyroid disease, Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

What is the treatment for essential tremor?
Essential tremor cannot be cured. Treatment reduces the severity of the tremor, sometimes greatly. There are various treatments that are used.

No treatment is an option
If your tremor is mild, you may not need any treatment.

Medication
There are two medicines used initially for essential tremor - propranolol and primidone. These medicines have been shown to ease the tremor in up to 8 in 10 affected people.

Propranolol - this is a medicine that is usually used in heart disease. It is in a class of medicines called beta-blockers. It has also been shown to be effective in essential tremor. This medicine should be used with care if you have a heart conduction problem or a lung disease such as asthma. The most common side-effects with propranolol are dizziness, tiredness and nausea (feeling sick).

Primidone - this is a medicine that is primarily used for epilepsy, but it also works very well in essential tremor. The most common side-effects are sleepiness, dizziness and nausea. These may improve if you continue to take this medicine.

When the diagnosis of essential tremor is made, you may be offered one of these medicines. A low dose is usually started at first, and gradually increased until your tremor is eased. If you reach the maximum dose without a satisfactory improvement, then the other medicine can be tried. If that also doesn't work, you can try them together. Other medicines can be tried if these two are not effective. A wide range of medicines have been shown to have some effect on reducing the severity of the tremor.

Surgery
If medicine treatment is not effective, and the tremor is severe, then a surgical procedure may be an option. There are two main surgical procedures that may be considered - thalamotomy and thalamic deep brain stimulation. They both involve the thalamus. This is a deep part of the brain that organises messages travelling between the body and brain.

Thalamotomy - in this procedure, the thalamus on one side of the brain is destroyed. It has been shown to be very effective. It stops or greatly reduces the tremor in up to 9 out of 10 people with essential tremor. There are risks involved such as a bleed into the brain. Potential side-effects include muscle weakness, speech problems and memory loss. If the thalamus on both sides of the brain is destroyed, there is a higher chance of side-effects. This is not usually recommended.

Thalamic deep brain stimulation - this procedure involves placing an electrode (fine wire) into the thalamus on one or both sides of the brain. The electrode is connected to a device called a stimulator. The electrode and stimulator stay in the body. (The stimulator is placed under the skin at the top of the chest.) The simulator sends electrical impulses down the electrode to the thalamus. It is not known exactly why this device works. It seems to interrupt or block the nerve signals coming through the thalamus that cause the tremor. If you have this procedure, you will need to have regular reviews to make sure that the stimulator setting is correct. This aims to minimise side-effects and maximise benefit. It may produce a good response in up to 9 out of 10 affected people. Again, there is a small risk that the procedure may cause a bleed into the brain. Side-effects include loss of sensation, speech problems and weakness. These usually resolve when the stimulator settings are adjusted.

Botulinum toxin injections (Botox®)
There is some evidence that Botox® injections are helpful in reducing certain tremors. Unfortunately, a Botox® injection into the arm also produces weakness of the arm. This is usually not tolerated. It is mainly useful when essential tremor affects the head and neck.

Alcohol
Many people find that alcohol is helpful in reducing their tremor. It needs to be used with caution to avoid developing an alcohol problem. It is not advisable to drink more than the normal recommended amount of alcohol. That is: men should drink no more than 21 units of alcohol per week, no more than four units in any one day, and have at least two alcohol-free days a week. Women should drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week, no more than three units in any one day, and have at least two alcohol-free days a week. Pregnant women, and women trying to become pregnant, should not drink alcohol at all. One unit is in about half a pint of normal strength beer, or two thirds of a small glass of wine, or one small pub measure of spirits.

Intermittent treatment
Some people with essential tremor only wish to have treatment for specific times. For example, prior to going to a social engagement or before a particularly important meeting. In these situations a single dose of propranolol or an alcoholic drink may ease the tremor satisfactorily for the occasion.

What is the outlook?
Essential tremor is called a progressive disease. This means that it tends to gets worse over time. It does not shorten expected lifespan and does not lead on to any more serious brain disorders. Some people have a mild tremor which does not affect daily life very much. If your tremor is more severe, it may significantly disrupt your ability to carry out normal activities such as drinking from a cup.

However, treatments work well to ease the severity of the tremor in most people with essential tremor.

Hi lybrate-user weight problem is one of the most common problems that affect millions of people. Approaching nutritionists and gym instructors for effective weight loss plans are effective fixes for this problem. Strangely, just like weight gain, people do struggle to gain a few pounds. It has been medically proven that being underweight too can cause severe health problems. Usually, people tend to think that following a weight gain diet is completely doable. But that is not completely true. It requires the same amount of control and will power as one would need while following a weight gain diet plan, which recommends the intake of high-calorie foods. The idea of a weight gain diet is to put on healthy weight and steer clear of saturated fats. Let us take a look at a few weight gain foods that could change your lives the natural way. Whole milk milk is an important beverage for the most of us. From a creamy cup of coffee to a healthy bowl of oatmeal/ cereals soaked in milk, there are several ways of enjoying this essential source of nourishment. While a weight gain diet plan would not require you to give up on milk, you will have to switch from fat-free or skim milk to whole milk. It is high in essential nutrients, vitamins and contains healthy calories. One glass of whole fat milk contains 3.25% fat and 150 calories. It nourishes your body and helps you gain weight faster. Cheese if you love cheese, then stick to it. Cheese is rich in calories, healthy nutrients, and vitamins. It supplements your body with enough protein and calcium to build stronger bones. Being a milk product, cheese has a high fat content, which helps to gain weight. Try out different types of cheese and use them in your food for garnishing or as a dip. Butter another essential ingredient that can be included in your diet while on a weight gain regime is butter. It is rich in good saturated fats and nutrients that help you to gain weight faster. Also, powerful fatty acids and vitamins make sure you are in the pink of health always. However, you need to monitor the intake saturated weight gain foods as too much intake could add to cholesterol. So, layer your toasts with some butter and enjoy every bite. Dried fruit and nuts the perfect food items to snack on while on a weight gain diet are wholesome nuts and other dried fruits. Full of nutrients and healthy fats, dried fruits and nuts provide you with essential fiber and vitamins. Add almonds, walnuts, or pecans to your daily diet. Include them in your cereals during breakfast or add them to your salads for a nice crunch. Potatoes carbohydrates are an essential part of your diet when you want to gain weight. The best source of carbohydrates is potatoes. They are rich in fiber, vitamins and proteins too. It is recommended to eat potatoes with their skin, as the skin is a rich source of protein. Add them to your main course or have them as a side dish to ensure healthy weight gain. Eggs eggs make a perfect breakfast item, especially if you are on a weight gain plan. Whisk up an omelet or scrambled egg for a quick meal and get nutrients in a jiffy. Egg yolk is known for the healthy cholesterol and essential nutrients it contains. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids and protein, eggs are the perfect wholesome weight gain foods. Pasta bring an exotic twist to your weight gain diet with some pasta. Rich in fiber, starch and carbohydrates, pasta is the answer to all your underweight issues. Available in many shapes and sizes, pastas can be made in a variety of recipes. Add chicken or vegetables to increase its nutritional properties. Lean red meat good news for meet lovers! you can relish the different preparations of lean red meat while on a weight gain diet. Rich in proteins and other nutrients, red meat adds to your weight faster. It is recommended to opt for lean cuts. So, keep lean red meat on the top of your shopping list the next time you buy weight gain foods. Also read: benefits of drinking hot water peanut butter enjoy your snack times with scrumptious peanut butter toast. Peanut butter is an ideal choice from weight gain foods for people striving to put on weight. It is loaded with fats and protein, adding some healthy calories to your weight. While selecting your peanut butter, make sure it does not contain sugar. It is recommended to opt for more natural or organic peanut butter. Fruits fruits are weight gain foods that are perfect for in-between meals. When following a weight gain regime, one can eat sugar-rich fruits like mangoes, avocados, bananas, and pineapples. Offering you essential nutrients and energy, these fruits are a must-add to your daily diet. Conclusion underweight people can now attain a healthy body by incorporating the above-mentioned food sources in your weight gain diet.

Use your time at home to graze regularly. Several small meals and snacks may seem more manageable than three large meals. Dried fruits, seeds, cheese and nut butter are nutritionally rich and calorie dense. Snack on a 1/4 cup of raisins for about 110 calories; spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on a medium banana and consume almost 300 calories; and have an ounce of cheddar cheese with just seven woven wheat crackers for 233 extra calories. Add one or all of these snacks daily to pile on a pound in a week.

Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! It not only depends upon the amount of food you consume daily, but also about eating Sensibly, depends upon your genes, your body's proper metabolism, assimilation and absorption, the levels of stress/ tension in your life, and any underlying medical condition you have! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points (if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. Both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3 months. Revert.
