Which Medical Conditions Can Be Cured With IVF?

In–vitro fertilization of IVF is a medical process through which a woman’s egg is fertilized with the sperm in a test tube, petri dish in a laboratory. IVF is not just useful for getting pregnant, it also helps in curing a lot of other conditions as well.

Conditions which can be treated by IVF

IVF may not be able to completely cure certain medical conditions but they can treat these conditions to a huge extent. Such medical conditions are:

• Treatment for people with genetic deformities - There are a lot of people out there who suffer from a huge risk of having genetically deformed babies but IVF can help prevent that. In such circumstances, the concerned people can choose the embryos, which do not contain such deformities, and the process through which this is done is called preimplantation genetic diagnosis. This treatment can also be performed on people who have consistent miscarriages.

• Ovulation problems - Women whose ovaries have difficulties in producing eggs on a normal basis can be helped by the IVF treatment.

• Vaginal and cervical complications - Sometimes, certain surgeries can cause injuries and extreme scarring on top of the vagina and also cervix problems. IVF can solve this problem by placing the embryo straight in the uterine cavity, avoiding the cervix.

• Multiple factors causing infertility - Sometimes both male and female infertility can be caused by several factors. In case there is a slight scarring of the fallopian tubes accompanied by a sperm problem, IVF can be used to remedy this and hikes up the chances of conception and fertilization.

• Damage in fallopian tubes or tubal damage - When a woman’s fallopian tubes are extremely damaged that surgery also cannot remedy it, IVF comes into play. This is because IVF circumvents the fallopian tubes and does the job. But before considering this treatment, consult your gynaecologist because if the fallopian tubes are slightly injured then the IVF treatment is not necessary.

Endometriosis - Endometriosis is a type of condition in which the uterine lining develops outside the uterus. Even though it is not the only option for dealing with this condition, IVF does help in remedying it to some extent.

• Unclear reasons for infertility - When it becomes very difficult to find the reasons causing infertility, IVF helps in diagnosing it. In this matter, the success rates are quite high for IVF.

Even though IVF is hardly used as the first mode of treatment in case of fertility complications, you can consider it as your next best option. IVF is known all around the world for it’s benefits and usage. But before going for any IVF treatments, make sure to go and consult your doctor and take his opinion about whether you really need it or not.

Kids And Homeopathy -  How Latter Can Help Other?

Parents today are more concerned about their child's healthy diet and hygiene compared to earlier days. They are more inclined towards quality when it comes to providing medical assistance to their children. They are also now well aware of the side effects of conventional drugs and are keener towards trying alternative treatments which come with no side effects. Studies prove that conventional drugs suppress diseases and antibiotics hamper digestion. But homeopathy on the other hand, offers natural remedies, which are safe, and has a long-lasting effect by boosting your body's immunity.

Below are some of the conditions in which homeopathy works wonders with the kids:

1. Acute conditions such as cold, flu, sore throat, stomach infections , Fever, tonsillitis, typhoid, cough . These conditions are self-limiting. Homeopathic remedies not only cure these acute problems, but also prevent their recurrence.

2. Chronic diseases like eczema and allergies are cured completely and never recur when treated with homeopathy. In both the above cases, homeopathy works miraculously. Alongside the healing process, it boosts the child's self-defense mechanisms to fight against diseases. While antibiotics may be too harsh for the child's body, homeopathy is a safer option since it does not have any side-effects.

Homeopathy is also effective in treating Wheat allergy, asthma , atopic dermatitis, Vitiligo, Bed wetting ,Behavioural disturbance ,colic, ear ache and reduces pain and discomforts. Some of the common problems of children where homeopathy works well are fever, teething, vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, kidney diseases, infant colic, jaundice, eczema, convulsions, ear infection, fungal infections, warts, thyroid problems, ADHD, and growth related problems.

Not just physical symptoms, homeopathy also treats mental and emotional disturbances.

• You can take help of homeopathy treatment if the child is cranky or restless, and it is very beneficial even in case of hyperactive children.

• It is also effective in increasing concentration.

• Homeopathy works perfectly for specially challenged children like as well.

• One of the plus points with homeopathic medicine is that it is easy to administer given their light doses and consumable taste.

• In addition, injections are not required. Furthermore, homeopathic treatment helps in all stages of childhood.

Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine. It works on improving immunity rather than only curing the disease. Thus, it is very important to complete courses in homeopathy medication. Even though handy, homeopathy does not allow self-medication. It is always advisable to seek a doctor's help.

Vulvodynia - Causes,Symptoms & Ways To Treat It!

Vulvodynia refers to a chronic pain in the vulva, a condition suffered by most women. Triggered generally by an unidentifiable cause, the pain was not considered as a real pain syndrome until of late. The ambiguity of the condition is such that many who do suffer from it fails to realize its complications.

There are primarily two types of Vulvodynia:

1. Generalized Vulvodynia: This is when the pain is all over the vulva, however different parts may pain at different times. It may be a constant pain or may occur occasionally.
2. Vulvar vestibulitis syndrome: The pain is in the vestibule area or the entrance of the vagina is known as vulvar vestibulitis syndrome. This kind of pain mostly exhibits a burning sensation and is triggered even by a slight touch. During intercourse the pain manifolds to extreme severity.

Although the cause of Vulvodynia is not known, doctors suspect the following reasons to be the contributing factors:

1. Nerve injury
2. Heredity
3. Yeast infections
4. Sexual abuse in the past
5. Muscle Spasm
6. Hormonal changes

Symptoms:

1. Burning sensations
2. Aching or soreness
3. Itching

Treatment:

No well versed cure is available for Vulvodynia, although certain self care treatments can bring relief. Among the many, you need to figure out which method suits you best and choose accordingly. To discern the best method, you might have to try various different combinations. At the same time, it is extremely important to educate yourself about Vulvodynia and have a thorough knowledge about what it is all about.  It is advisable that you maintain a record of the treatments which according to you suit you the most in order to avoid confusion.

Some of the methods are given below:

1.  Avoid products which might act as potential irritants near the vulva.
2. Do not put much pressure on the vulva. Avoid activities which might exert direct pressure on it.
3. Whenever it pains, try to soothe the area by soaking it in lukewarm water or applying ice on it.
4. Use medications like lidocaine to relieve pain.
5. Certain exercises might also help relax the area.
6. Biofeedback also helps relax the vaginal muscles and bring some relief.

I feel intense back pain while seating from lying position. It did not happen when I do it little oblique toward Rt or left. What can be possible reason. Kindly explain treatment modality. Can it be PIVD?

I feel intense back pain while seating from lying position. It did not happen when I do it little oblique toward Rt o...
Hello lybrate-user, Yes, it is suggestive of classic back pain where your IV disc of the spine is slipping posterior, i.e. The jelly like structure between your disc is slipping out of its normal borders. This could be a clear case of PIVD (posterior inter-vertebral disc involvement) with no slipping from the sides of the disc. To begin with, avoid sitting with crossed legs and on a chair for a few days until your pain intensity is reduced. This is to avoid hitting your jelly like disc and prevent it slipping more posterior (backwards) towards the spine. This can cause more pain and might extend up to hips, legs or foot. 1. Tuck your stomach inside for about 20 percent in without holding your breath. This activates main core muscle which was hidden due to pain history. Repeat 10 reps for about 5-6 times/day 2. Standing position: Extend your back backwards without bending your neck to avoid over pressure with your hands on your hips. Gently and slowly do this exercise to push that disc back into this place. Avoid clenching your buttocks and maintain a minimum basic distance between your feet. Repeat 10 reps for 6 times/day 3. Lie on your back and lift your hips off the bed with your hands by your side. This is a bridege-like exercise in sections. I.e. Lift your hips first followed by stomach followed by chest up in a slow and controlled manner till the point of pain. If you feel better and back pain level goes down then kindly keep going and repeat 10 reps for 5 times/day. ** Exercise ball: Try to sit on a ball with a good core balance (tuck tummy in) and legs apart as per the requirement. Kindly do exercise no 1** (tummy tuck) while sitting on it and move your pelvis/hip forwards and backwards without moving any other PART OF YOUR BACK, CHEST OR STOMACH- (LIKE A CAT AND CAMEL) ** If pain arises from back or anywhere else then stop the exercise immediately and lie down on your back with 2 pillows under your knees to relax your tight muscle behind the thighs which often pulls out leading to back pain** Kindly perform these exercises and update me further regarding your pain status. Double check with ball exercise in front of mirror to avoid mistakes and feel free to ask any queries. Take care, Thank you.

What Are The Causes And Symptoms Of Epilepsy?

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MD - General Medicine, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Faridabad
What Are The Causes And Symptoms Of Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a neurological disease which is characterised by recurring epileptic seizures. These seizures can be brief or can persist for prolonged periods. Vigorous episodes which last long can result in physical injuries such as broken bones. Mention that 6th February is International epilepsy day.

Causes of Epilepsy
The cause of this condition isn’t very evident; however, most medical practitioners attribute epileptic seizures to brain injury, tumours, infections in the brain or birth defects. Some doctors believe that epilepsy is caused due to genetic mutations and is an outcome of abnormal activity of cells in the brain. Other causes for this condition can be alcohol or narcotics withdrawal and electrolyte problems.

Symptoms

  1. Repeated seizures
  2. Impaired memory
  3. Bouts of fainting
  4. Short spans of blackout
  5. Sudden bouts of blinking and chewing
  6. Panic
  7. Inappropriate repetitive movements

Types of Seizures
A seizure, also known as fit, is usually a brief episode characterised by uncontrollable jerking movement and loss of awareness due to abnormal neuronal activity in your brain. A collective occurrence of these seizures causes epilepsy.

There are three types of seizures an epileptic person usually encounters.

  1. Idiopathic: This kind of seizure has no apparent cause
  2. Cryptogenic: The doctors believe that there is a cause for the seizure but cannot detect it
  3. Symptomatic: These seizures occur due to a reason.

Treatments

  1. Medication: Medication is the most common treatment in case of epilepsy. Drugs taken on a regular basis can stop the seizure partially. But in very severe cases, they seem to have no effect at all.
  2. Surgery: For symptomatic seizures which are caused due to abnormal brain function, surgery can be a way to get rid of seizures. In some minor cases, nerve stimulation in the brain and special diets can be prescribed to control the epileptic seizures.

Five facts about epilepsy you need to know:

  • Epilepsy is not psychosis or madness and can be treated easily 
  • Popular celebraties with epilepsy include Aristotle, Alfred Nobel, Alexander the great, Sir Isaacs Newton, Martin Luther and Julius Caesar etc. 
  • Woman with epilepsy can have a normal pregnancy 
  • Newer medicines for epilepsy are effective and very safe 
  • Surgery can cure epilepsy in some patients.

Why Do You Need Knee Replacement?

MBBS, M.S., M.Ch - Orthopaedics

Why Do You Need Knee Replacement?

Knee replacement is a surgery wherein an artificial joint is used to replace a diseased, damaged or worn out knee. This surgery is common among people who fall in the age group of 60-80, but recent trends seem to suggest that younger people are opting for this surgery as well. The lifetime of the artificial knee joint is around 20 years, provided the knee is well cared for.

Why do you need knee replacement?

Most common reason is “high grade osteoarthritis” due to wear and tear of the knee joint. The pre-hospital study of the Knee joint is mandatory and would decide what kind of Replacement is suitable to the patient. If there is diabetes or hypertension associated with this, then it should be controlled well before undergoing surgery. Hemoglobin of at least 10 gm% is required.

If the mobility in your knee joint is reduced leading to impaired functioning of the knee joint, then you might need a knee replacement surgery. You may experience pain while walking, sitting and, in some cases, resting as well.

Some of the common reasons why you may opt for this particular surgery are:

  1. Gout, where, small crystals are formed inside the joint.
  2. Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, wherein the immune system of the body attacks the body’s healthy tissues.
  3. Hemophilia, wherein, the blood ceases to clot normally.
  4. Injuries to the knee.
  5. Disorders that cause unusual bone growth (bone dysplasias).
  6. Death of bone in the knee joint following blood supply problems (avascular necrosis).
  7. Knee deformity with pain and loss of cartilage.
  8. Unusual growth of bones in the knee joint.

Knee replacement surgery is classified into:

  1. Partial Knee Replacement: In this surgery, only one part of the joint is replaced.
  2. Total Knee Replacement: Total knee replacement surgery involves replacement of both sides of the knee joint.

The usual hospital stay period is around 2-3 days after the surgery is completed. Initially, you will require the help of crutches to walk for at least 2 months. You may also be asked to do gentle knee strengthening exercises. It may take up to 3 months to recover completely from a knee replacement surgery.

Knee Pain - How Physiotherapy Can Help?

Knee Pain - How Physiotherapy Can Help?

Knee pain or injuries are very common and have numerous causes. Knee pain can emerge from delicate tissue wounds like ligament sprains and muscle strains. Bone conditions like knee joint pain, Osgood Schlatters, and biomechanical dysfunction can also cause knee pain. Treatment can include basic knee mobilization techniques, taping, massages or knee strengthening exercises completely through a careful recovery method after knee replacement or reconstruction.

Physiotherapy can help you overcome the pain and increase your strength and flexibility. A physiotherapist can suggest you a number of treatments and also help you understand your issue and get you back to your everyday routine. Physiotherapists are said to be successful in getting rid of the source of the knee pain by diagnosing a cause. This includes tightness around the knee and treating it with stretching and exercises.

Following are some of the exercises a physiotherapist might generally recommend for knee pain:

  1. Hamstring stretch: Stretching keeps you flexible and increases your scope of movement, or how far you can move your joints in different directions. It additionally helps you reduce your chances of injuries and pain. Continuously warm up with a five minute walk first. Lie down when you are prepared to stretch your hamstring. Circle a bed sheet around your right foot, use the sheet to pull the leg up and hold for twenty seconds and then lower the leg. Repeat twice and switch legs.
  2. Calf stretch: Use a chair for balance. Bend your left leg. Step back with your right leg and gradually straighten it behind you. Press your left heel toward the floor. You should feel the stretch in the calf of your back leg. Hold for 20 seconds. Repeat twice and then switch legs.
  3. Straight leg raise: It helps build muscle strength to give support to the weak joints. Lie on the floor. Twist your left knee, foot on the floor. Keep the right leg straight, toes pointed up. Tighten your thigh muscles and raise your right leg.
  4. Quad set: With these, you don't raise your leg. Just tighten the thigh muscles, also called the quadriceps, of one leg at once. Begin by lying on the floor. Keep both legs on the ground, loose. Flex and hold the left leg tense for five seconds and then relax. Do three sets of ten repetitions. Switch legs after every set.
  5. Cushion squeeze: This move strengthens your legs from the inside so that they can support the knees. Lie on your back, both knees facing inwards. Place a cushion or a pillow between the knees. Press your knees together, squishing the cushion between them. Hold for five seconds and then relax. Do three sets of ten repetitions. Switch legs after every set.
  6. Heel raise: Stand tall and hold the back of a seat for support. Lift your heels off the ground and rise on the toes of both feet. Hold for three seconds. Gradually lower both heels to the ground. Do three sets of ten repetitions.

How Much Salt Should We Take?

How Much Salt Should We Take?

What is salt and sodium?

Salt is made of sodium (40% by weight) and chloride (60% by weight). Sodium is a crucial electrolyte in the body. Sodium is an essential nutrient necessary for maintenance of plasma volume and blood pressure, acid-base balance, transmission of nerve impulses and normal cell function.

Different types of salt?

  • Table salt or common salt
  • Sea salt
  • Himalayan rock salt (sendha namak and black salt)

The primary advantages of various types of salts other than common salt is having trace minerals (in very small amounts) and lack of processing and additives.

How salt intake normally?

WHO recommends that adults consume less than 5 g (just under a teaspoon) of salt per day. This goes around 2300mg of sodium per day. But, most Indian people consume too much salt - on average 9-12 grams per day.

What are health hazards of high salt intake?

How high intake of sodium cause kidney disease?

High salt intake is associated with kidney disease by two mechanisms:

Causing hypertension, vascular injury and proteinuria.

FOOD containing high salts?

Fast foods, preserved and packaged foods like:

  • Prickles
  • Anchovies
  • Soups
  • Bread products
  • Prawns
  • Salted and dry-roasted nuts
  • Salt fish
  • Smoked meat and fish
  • Soy sauce
  • Stock cubes

Many snack foods - chips, crackers, and pretzels - contain several hundred milligrams of sodium per serving.

Conditions where low salt is beneficial?

Hypertension, Heart Failure, Kidney disease, Nephrotic syndrome, Kidney stones and Patient on diuretics or ACEi or ARB.

How to reduce sodium (salt) intake?

  • Not adding salt during the preparation of food
  • Not having a salt shaker on the table
  • Limiting the consumption of salty snacks
  • Choosing products with lower sodium content
  • Remove salt from recipes whenever possible
  • Use salt substitutes wisely
  • Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy
  • Use onions, garlic, herbs, spices, citrus juices and vinegars in place of some or all of the salt to add flavour
  • Drain and rinse canned beans (like chickpeas, kidney beans, etc.) and vegetables
  • Combine lower-sodium versions of food with regular versions. This will not differ much in taste. This works especially well for broths, soups and tomato-based pasta sauces.
  • Cook pasta, rice and hot cereal without salt
  • Cook by grilling, braising, roasting, searing and sautéing to bring out natural flavors. This will reduce the need to add salt
  • Incorporate foods with potassium like sweet potatoes, potatoes, greens, tomatoes.
