Yes, you can plan for another pregnancy now if you want. You should take 5 mg folic acid during the time you are trying to conceive till 12 weeks of pregnancy as it helps to decrease the chance of neural tube defects and other abnormalities in the baby. It is ok to get menses a month after an abortion.

Recommend Daily Salt Intake

Recommend Daily Salt Intake

How much salt do we much need - recommended daily salt intake #worldsaltawarenessweek

Our bodies need salt to survive. Sodium, a major component of salt, can raise blood pressure by causing the body to retain fluid, which leads to a greater burden on the heart.

Recommendation for sodium intake is less than 2, 300 mg/day for adults. This equals about one teaspoon of table salt. The american heart association recommends eating less than 1, 500 milligrams of sodium per day.
The average healthy person needs only about 1, 200 – 1, 500 milligrams (mg) of sodium per day. Those diagnosed with high blood pressure or at risk for high blood pressure should limit sodium consumption to 1, 500 mg/day. 

Almost 80% of the sodium we eat comes from processed, packaged and restaurant foods. Consider that almost anything you buy at the supermarket that comes in a bag, a can, a box, a bottle, etc. Mostly likely has salt in it. These items all add up.

We know that eating less salt can help to reduce high blood pressure or hypertension which is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

Even though we seem to like the taste of salt in our foods, the good news is that we can get used to the taste of less salt and may not even notice if we try and make small, gradual changes. 

So please restrict your use of salt to not more then a tsp a day, also check food labels and menus carefully.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Vaginal Rashes

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Vaginal Rashes

Rashes in the vulva, which might be caused due to various health problems or due to irritation on skin, usually constitute all the vaginal rashes. The vaginal rashes might be the result of non infectious conditions (it might be an allergic reaction) or it might also be the result of a sexually transmitted infection. The vulva may become red and might have sores and blisters. Many times, the vulva doesn't change color at all, but visible bumps are present in the area.

The symptoms of vaginal rashes are as follows:

  1. Blisters or sores
  2. Reddening of the vulva
  3. Visible bumps
  4. Vaginal discharge
  5. Pain in the pelvic region
  6. Painful urination with a burning feeling
  7. Itchiness
  8. Pain while having sex
  9. Lice or insects in the pubic hair
  10. Fever
  11. Enlarged lymph nodes
  12. Ulcers on the groin

Although the symptoms are not usually fatal, sometimes the conditions might become life threatening. If your body temperature rises above 101oF and if you are suffering from a severe abdominal and pelvic pain, the best option is to consult a doctor immediately.

Vaginal rashes can be due both noninfectious causes as well as due to sexually transmitted infections. Some of the infectious causes are:

  1. Genital herpes
  2. Granuloma inguinale
  3. Human papilloma virus
  4. Molluscum contagiosum
  5. Scabies
  6. Pubic lice
  7. Yeast infections
  8. Syphilis

Some of the noninfectious causes are:

  1. Allergic reactions
  2. Eczema
  3. Chemical irritants like soap, lubricants, creams, etc
  4. Lichen Simplex Chronicus
  5. Psoriasis

Although the vaginal rashes aren't very serious in nature, you might face certain complications like infertility, secondary or tertiary syphilis, and transmitting the infection to your partner.

Vaginal rashes are usually treated with home remedies. Here are a few treatments you could try out if you are afflicted with vaginal rashes:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: This particular substance is known for having antifungal and antibacterial properties. It will help you get over the itching which takes place when you are suffering with a vaginal rash. If the rash is due to a fungal or bacterial infection, then apple cider vinegar will help to clear out the infection. Wash your vagina with apple cider vinegar and warm water mixture.
  • Anti-bacterial Talc: Anti-bacterial talc is extremely mild to the skin. It helps to cure fungal infections but this method might take some time to cure the rash.

Consult your doctor if the rash becomes serious and requires immediate attention.

You must be suffering from tight foreskin problem, under it lots of debris accumulates, as well as it does interfere with sex significantly. So kindly get it removed by circumcision, a very minor surgical procedure. It will heal in about a week and you can have good sex and hygiene. All the best

प्याज के फायदे - Benefits of Onion in Hindi

प्याज के फायदे - Benefits of Onion in Hindi

प्राचीन काल से प्याज को उपचारात्मक मूल्य के लिए जाना जाता है। हैज़ा और प्लेग के महामारी के दौरान प्याज को ऐतिहासिक रूप से एक निवारक दवा के रूप में इस्तेमाल किया गया था। प्याज सिर्फ एक स्वादिष्ट पाक पौधों से कहीं ज़्यादा है, इसमें प्राकृतिक चीनी, विटामिन ए, बी 6, सी और ई और सोडियम, पोटेशियम, लोहा और आहार फाइबर जैसी खनिज शामिल हैं। प्याज फोलिक एसिड का भी एक अच्छा स्रोत है।
प्याज, जिसे बल्ब प्याज या सामान्य प्याज के रूप में भी जाना जाता है, एक सब्जी है और जीनस एलियम की सबसे व्यापक प्रजाति है। स्वास्थ्य विशेषज्ञ इस तथ्य को स्वीकार करते हैं कि प्याज चिरकारी अस्थमा, एलर्जी ब्रोंकाइटिस, आम सर्दी से संबंधित खांसी और ठंडे सिंड्रोम वाले रोगियों के लिए महान राहत प्रदान करते हैं।

प्याज के लाभ

1. मधुमेह को रोकता है:
प्याज  में  मौजूद  बायोटिन  आपके  स्वास्थ्य  पर  कई  सकारात्मक  प्रभाव  डालता  है,  जिनमें  से  एक  टाइप  2  मधुमेह  से  जुड़े  लक्षणों  का  सामना  कर  रहा  है। प्याज में क्रोमियम भी होता है, जो रक्त शर्करा के स्तरों को नियंत्रित करने में मदद करता है और मांसपेशियों और शरीर की कोशिकाओं को धीमा, क्रमिक ग्लूकोज जारी करता है।

2. बेहतर प्रतिरक्षा के लिए:
प्याज में महत्वपूर्ण मात्रा में मौजूद फाइटोकेमिकल्स शरीर के भीतर विटामिन सी के उत्तेजक के रूप में कार्य करते हैं। जब आप प्याज खाते हैं तो विटामिन सी और आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली की प्रभावकारीता बढ़ जाती है, क्योंकि यह आपके प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को विषाक्त पदार्थों और विभिन्न विदेशी निकायों से लड़ने में बेहतर कर देता है जो रोग और बीमारी को जन्म दे सकते हैं। यह विषाक्त पदार्थों और विभिन्न विदेशी निकायों के खिलाफ आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को सुपरचार्ज करता है।

3. मौखिक स्वास्थ्य के लिए:
दांत अक्सर दाँत क्षय और मौखिक संक्रमणों को रोकने के लिए उपयोग किया जाता है। कच्चे प्याज 2 से 3 मिनट के लिए चबाने से मौखिक क्षेत्र में और गले और होंठ जैसे आसपास के स्थानों में मौजूद सभी रोगाणुओं को संभावित रूप से मार सकते हैं।

4. स्वस्थ त्वचा के लिए:
स्वस्थ त्वचा को बनाए रखने में भी बायोटिन महत्वपूर्ण है। मुंह के लक्षणों के उपचार के लिए शहद या जैतून का तेल के साथ मिश्रित प्याज का रस सबसे अच्छा इलाज माना जाता है। प्याज भी सूजन-विरोधी सब्जी है, इसलिए प्याज में सक्रिय यौगिकों लाल और सूजन को कम कर सकती हैं जो आमतौर पर मुँहासे जैसी त्वचा की स्थिति से जुड़ी होती हैं। यह गाउट और गठिया जैसे स्थितियों से जुड़ा दर्द और सूजन को कम करने में भी मदद करता है।

5. खांसी का उपचार:
प्याज के रस और शहद के बराबर मिश्रण से ग्रस्त गले और खाँसी के लक्षणों को दूर करने में मदद मिल सकती है।

6. कैंसर को रोकता है:
प्याज क्वरसिटिन में समृद्ध है, जो एक बहुत ही शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सीडेंट यौगिक है जो लगातार रोकथाम या कैंसर के प्रसार को कम करने से जुड़ा हुआ है। विटामिन सी भी एक मजबूत एंटीऑक्सीडेंट है, जिससे पूरे शरीर में मुक्त कणों की मौजूदगी और प्रभाव कम हो सकता है।

7. यौन स्वास्थ्य के लिए:
प्याज एक स्वस्थ यौन जीवन को प्राप्त करने में मदद करने के लिए जाना जाता है। 

8. हड्डी के स्वास्थ्य के लिए:
प्याज को गुड़ और पानी के साथ खाने से भी ऊष्मीय स्थिति में सुधार किया जा सकता है, क्योंकि यह शरीर की खनिज सामग्री में विशेष रूप से लोहे को जोड़ता है, जो कि नए लाल रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन का एक अनिवार्य हिस्सा है।

9. पाचन के लिए:
प्याज में अधिक फाइबर है, जो स्वस्थ और नियमित पाचन तंत्र को बनाए रखने के लिए अच्छा है। फाइबर पाचन दर्द को भी रोकता है।

प्याज के दुष्प्रभाव:
प्याज  की  वजह  से सबसे  आम  समस्याएं  हैं:

1. प्याज  मधुमेह रोगियों के  रक्त  के  स्तर  को  बहुत  कम  कर  सकते  है।
2. प्याज के अत्यधिक खपत के कारण गैस्ट्रोइंटेस्टाइनल असुविधा हो सकती है।
3. प्याज को गर्भवती या नर्सिंग महिलाओं में हृद्दाह पैदा करने के लिए जाना जाता है।
4. प्याज का अतिरिक्त सेवन आंत के उचित कार्यप्रणाली में बाधा पहुंचा सकता है और अक्सर विभिन्न स्वास्थ्य मुद्दों जैसे गैस, ब्लोटिंग, उल्टी खराबी आदि के लिए रास्ता तैयार करता है।
5. कुछ लोगों को प्याज से एलर्जी हो सकती है और इसके रस को त्वचा पे लगाने से त्वचा की जलन, त्वचा पर दाने, त्वचा की लाली या साँस लेने में कठिनाई हो सकती है।

Emphysema - Diagnosis and Management

Emphysema - Diagnosis and Management


Emphysema is a breathing disorder that has no cure and worsens with time. The symptoms of emphysema - a feeling of tightness in the chest, persistent cough, wheezing and breathlessness – are caused due to destroyed or impaired functioning of lung tissue.

Diagnosing Emphysema
A thorough physical examination which would include weight and blood pressure checks would be performed. The doctor would also listen to the heartbeat to determine if it sounds strange or different.

In addition to checking for the signs and symptoms of emphysema, a physical examination would also help the doctor in determining the following:

  • Whether the fingertips are rounded. This condition is also known as “clubbing”.
  • Whether you have a rounded or “barrel chest” which is caused by lungs that are larger than normal.
  • If the lips have a blue tinge also known as cyanosis, which is a sign of low levels of oxygen in the blood.
  • Signs of malnutrition as in advanced cases of emphysema the muscles slowly waste away.

Tests For Emphysema
A doctor would recommend additional tests to confirm his diagnosis of this lung condition. Some of the tests are:

  • Pulmonary Function Tests or PFTs and spirometry tests would be advised to measure the volume and capacity of the lungs.
  • A chest X-ray is useful to diagnose advanced emphysema as the lungs appear larger than normal in patients with this condition.
  • A CT scan of the chest will show the air sacs or alveoli have been destroyed.
  • The blood test report of patients with emphysema would show a high amount of red blood cells. The production of red blood cells in the body increases due to the reduced levels of oxygen.
  • A pulse oximetry test also known as an oxygen saturation test could be done to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. A monitor would be attached to the patient’s forehead, finger or earlobe to carry out this test.
  • An arterial blood gas test is usually performed on patients as their condition worsens. It measures the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood.
  • An electrocardiogram or ECG might be advised to rule out condition such as heart disease as a cause of shortness of breath.

Management and Treatment
There is no known cure for emphysema and the condition can worsen with time. Treatment will slow the speed of decline and will depend on the severity of the condition when diagnosed. Some treatment options are:

  1. Quit smoking to protect your lungs.
  2. Bronchodilator medications used to treat asthma are useful in relaxing the muscles around the airways.
  3. Anti-inflammatory medications reduce inflammation around the airways.
  4. Oxygen therapy is recommended to patients when they are not able to breathe enough oxygen from the air.
  5. In some severe cases, lung volume reduction surgery might be advised to relieve pressure on the muscles required for breathing and to improve the elasticity of the lungs.

Keeping your home clean and free of dust and pollutants will help to prevent respiratory infections and disorders such as emphysema. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
