Causes and Symptoms of Anorexia

Ph. D - Alternative Medicine, PG Diploma in Psycological Counseling
Psychologist, Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Anorexia

Anorexia is a common eating disorder which is identified by abnormally low body weight, intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of body weight. The problem is not only related to your dietary patterns but it also related to your mental state. People with this disorder are generally self-conscious, have a low self-esteem and are overly concerned about their external appearance.

Causes of anorexia

  • Biological factors - These factors represent that anorexia can be congenital or it may have developed over time. Congenital means that disorder is hereditary in nature and is passed on from the parents to the offspring. On the other hand, it may develop in people who are more sensitive and have an inclination towards perfection.
  • Psychological factors - Anorexia can also be caused due to certain specific personality traits and emotions that might be possessed by you. For instance, anorexia is more likely to happen to young women who are really worried and conscious out the way they look externally. Additionally, people who are either emotionally not too strong or suffer from anxiety issues can develop this disorder easily.
  • Environmental factors - The type of a cultural set up you are living in also plays an important role in developing this disorder. For instance, the western culture is all about slim and fit people, whereas the oriental countries are not so bothered about the same.

Symptoms of Anorexia

Emotional symptoms - This category of symptoms includes behaviors and a thought process aimed towards losing weight and minimizing your food intake. Some of the symptoms belonging to this type include:

  • Forceful vomiting to lose calories
  • Staying hungry
  • Excessive physical activity or exercise
  • Denial of hunger
  • Social withdrawal
  • Irritability
  • Depressed moods

Physical symptoms - These symptoms are self-explanatory and are clearly visible on the human body. These include:

  • Extreme weight loss
  • Thin appearance
  • Abnormal blood count
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Discoloration of the fingers
  • Hair that thins, breaks or falls out
  • Soft, downy hair covering the body
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure

What should I do.
Hair loss and dandruff/hair whitening can be controlled by - 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

If you do not like milk have 1-2 egg whites in the morning along with your breakfast. · You need to focus on your protein intake : Increase your protein intake e.g. milk, dairy products- cheese, paneer, lentils (dals), nuts ( soya, peanuts, dry fruits ), pulses e.g. rajma, chole, kidney beans etc. sprouts.

Underweight is a term describing a person whose body weight is considered too low to be healthy. The definition usually refers to people with a body mass index (BMI) of under 18.5 a weight 15% to 20% below that normal for their age and height group. Low weight may be due to improper diet, reduced assimilation from intestine, illness, metabolism, genetics etc. Thus first we have to rule out any such condition, with this have a healthy diet with more proteins (legumes, eggs, fish, lean meat, vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water and go for regular exercise. A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will definitely help you a lot.

Hi sir, My age 25 I'm suffering to stamina problem past 20 years. Can you tell me about treatment this problem?

BHMS

Your statement seems to be more of psychological (some wrong believe). Its best to start afresh and take an opinion from a doctor after a thorough examination with important investigations. This will solve your problem permanently and help you enjoy life. You can update all the reports and the diagnosis after the medical checkup for further clarification. Till then learn more about healthy lifestyle habits on the net and adapt those which you like.

Hi Diabetes cannot be detected with just one blood sugar reading. This value of 186 will be considered as random blood sugar value AND is not normal. Get your HbA1C test done and this will confirm if you are a Diabetic.

Hi, take out some time for exercise. Atleast half an hour do brisk walk or jogging. Eat more fruits and vegetables, cut down sugar and rice completely. Yes stress and monotonous lifestyle can contribute to wight gain. In stress sometimes we tend to do emotional eating- stress affects sexual performance too. Don't sit on your chair for long and keep walking after every half hour for few minutes. Take lot of water.

Dear Lybrate User, *The dangerous buildup is caused by alcohol’s interference with your body’s ability to burn fat, which is key to successful weight loss. Although your liver normally metabolizes fat when alcohol isn’t present, a person who drinks rum, whiskey or even beer triggers a process called fat sparing. The process forces your body to use the calories from alcohol instead of the calories from fat. *Avoid the unproven risks of drinking hard alcohol by following some effective — and safe — methods for weight loss. Stick with beverages like water, diet soda or unsweetened tea, as well as low-fat milk. Build your meals around vegetables, fruits and whole grains and ask your doctor about a safe exercise plan. The Department of Health and Human Services suggests 2.5 hours each week of moderate aerobic exercise, including swimming or dancing, as well as strength training with weights.

prevention of kidney stones

DNB (General Surgery), MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Sri Ganganagar
prevention of kidney stones
Renal stone formation is very common in the hot climate. Renal stone formation is very common problem in north india. These are tips for prevention of the renal stones:

Stones are formed when there is nucleation and infection of the renal system. This can be simply prevented by drinking adequate amount of liquids. Now the question is how to know that we are having adequate intake of liquids. Our urine output must be more than 1.5 lt which can be achieved by taking 2.5 lt of fluid in winter and 4 lt of fluid in summers. The colour of the urine must be white or pale yellow which shows adequate urine.

Most of the stones are of calcium oxalate type. There is myth that taking milk and milk products will increase the stone formation but the fact is oral intake of calcium helps in decreasing the absorption of the oxalate from gut and prevent stone formation. So one should take adequate amount of milk and products. (note: calcium supplement can increase stone formation so avoid them).

Try to reduce the food which is very rich in oxalate: common food highly rich in oxalate includes:
Green leafy vegetable
Cashew nuts, almonds, peanuts
Soy products.

Avoid food which have animal protein like non veg food. These food increases the incidence of the stones. Preferably eat vegetable proteins.

Try to take less sodium diet. People who eat high sodium excrete more calcium in the urine and thus can form the stones.

Chronic kidney stones are often treated with potassium citrate, but limeade, lemonade and other fruits and juices high in natural citrate offers the same stone-preventing benefits. So drink more and more such food.

These were few tips for prevention of kidney stones. Management of stones depends upon the size, location and symptoms of the stone. Not all stones are dangerous but few can be such dangerous that can damage kidney.
