I have a pale white line in the left inside cheek that does not go off I consulted a dentist who diagnosed it as line a alba probably due to cheek biting or frictional kerotosis I have pain but irritation is there any home remedy?

BDS, Non-Resident J.R. in Dept. of Orthodontics, Certified oral implantologist, Advanced Aesthetics, Digital Smile Designer
Dentist, Jammu
Sir your dentist has diagnosed it absolutely right. You can go for occlusal grinding for relief or orthodontic correction for the same. After a dental professional (like a dentist or oral pathologist) has diagnosed you with linea alba, they will most likely start treatment by advising you to get rid of whatever irritants or behaviors are causing the condition. Some of the things you might have to do include stopping certain habits, such as biting your cheeks or being overly aggressive in your oral hygiene. Alternatively, your dental professional may have to make adjustments or changes to your dentures and orthodontic appliances (braces). It might also be necessary to repair or remove uneven teeth. Since some of the reasons for cheek biting might relate to emotional or psychological issues, you may also be advised to schedule an appointment with a counselor or psychiatrist to try to deal with the underlying issues behind the cheek biting. After this, you can follow up with your dentist to confirm whether the condition has improved.

General Physician, Faridabad
Hello sir, I am 21 years old or I have diabetes for 8 moths how to cure it fully? Please tell me.
tips to control diabetes first and foremost take your medicines regularly as diabetes can be controlled ,not fully cured 1-Losing Extra Weight:-helps lowering blood pressure and cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-improves metabolic activity and helps in reducing weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-, improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:- Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet.

What is the cause of diabetes?

CCMTD, CCEBDM, C.Diabetology, American Diabetes Association, DOMS, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What is the cause of diabetes?
Hello I am Dr.Tanvi Diabetes and Thyroid (Endocrinologist) specialist from Mumbai There is no one definate cause of Diabetes. Diabetes is a Lifestyle Metabolic Disorder. Following are the reasons which are more related to causing you Diabetes. 1.Positive Family History 2.Obesity and Overweight 3. Smoking 4.Drinking Alcohol 5.Lack of Exercise and Physical Activity 6.Taking treatment of Hypertension ( Blood Pressure) and Cholesterol 7.Stress and Tension 8. Eating unhealthy food and junk food 9. Lack of enough sleep Either one or all the reason can be contributing factor. At the same time having one reason doesn?t mean that you will have Diabetes. More than 60 percent of people are unaware about the same as they do not have any symptoms. So best is keep checking your blood sugar regularly for early diagnosis. If you wish you can consult with me regarding further management with your complete Medical History and Latest Blood reports in Private Consultation.

Hi, Penis size is something about which most of the men are obsessed because they don’ t have proper knowledge about the size of their organs. It is important to know that size of penis doesn’t matters unless it is too small to perform sexual intercourse. Sperm count/ volume, penis size (if it does not hinder sexual intercourse), scrotum size, duration of ejaculation has nothing to do with sexual life and stamina. Heart-healthy behavior is penis-healthy behavior. You should quit smoking, eat more low-cholesterol foods, and get plenty of regular cardio exercise—particularly squats, hip thrusts, and leg lifts—to send blood rushing to the pelvic and gluteal area.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Answer to your questions are not so easy that can be given in few words. Your Diabetologist and Cardiologist are best persons who can give you effective advice. Possibly your diet is to be adjusted by a dietitian under supervision of your Diabetologist. You might need more calorie but avoiding increase of CHO and Fat component of your diet. Your protein quantity may have to be increased, of course if your Kidney function is alright. For Exercise, Brisk walking (at your highest comfortable speed) daily, 6 days a week is required. Duration is minimum 30 minutes if you are not overweight. If you feel tired you take a break to begin with. But complete 30 minutes walking. Yes use walking shoe while you walk.

What are the DO's and DON'Ts to be taken care of immediately before and after having meals (lunch, dinner, breakfast) Please guide me,

General Physician,
What are the DO's and DON'Ts to be taken care of immediately before and after having meals (lunch, dinner, breakfast)...
Healthy eating habits go further than just food. What we do directly after we eat can have an adverse effect on our bodies. These habits may not seem harmful, but can cancel out all of the clean eating we’ve been doing. Here are some post-meal do’s and don’ts that will help you optimize your digestive system and allow you to look and feel better. DON’T Drink Tea Some people like a cup of tea right before or right after dinner with dessert. The high acidity of the tea leaves though affects your digestive system. Acid will harden any protein from your meal and make it very difficult to digest; it also decreases the amount of iron your body will absorb. If you’d like to have a post-meal cup of tea, wait at least an hour after dinner to allow for digestion. DO Drink Water Drinking water before a meal can help you feel fuller and therefore eat less. It will also help your digestive system by breaking down food and absorbing nutrients and softening your stool to prevent constipation. DON’T Go to Sleep When people are trying to lose weight, they’re advised not to eat too close to bedtime. When we sleep, our bodies don’t digest food properly. Sleeping on a full stomach can lead to a not-so-great snooze and leave you feeling full and groggy. DO Go For a Walk Health experts advise against a brisk walk or exercise right after a meal, since your blood will flow away from your stomach and hinder digestion. Taking a moderate walk after a meal though will burn up the sugar in your blood and prevent it from turning into fat. DON’T Eat Fruit with Your Meal Fruit is made up of simple sugars that are easily broken down by your stomach acid. Most fruits are also high in nutrients like vitamin C and potassium. Eating fruit, however, along with any other type of food, can hold up your intestines and cause the other contents in your stomach to spoil. Breakfast time is the best time to enjoy some fruit, but be sure to wait at least an hour before ingesting any other food. DO Improve Your Posture You’ve probably heard this a hundred times from your mother or other relatives. Bad posture can lead to not only back problems, but intestinal issues as well. When you slouch, your internal organs get squished and prevent you from digesting your food. Sit or stand up straight after your meal to improve the flow of digestion. DON’T Bathe Bathing is great in general. Bathing right after a meal though will direct blood flow away from your stomach the way exercise does, and slow your digestion system.

Doctor, I get sleep in intervals of time like even though I go to bed at 2 am I'll wake up at 7 feeling a little drowsy which again forces me to get back to my bed, so when I do that, I'll get sleep somewhere around 8 and again I'll wake up at 10, but still with a feeling of drowsiness and sometimes even though I have headache and less sleep in the previous day I can't sleep properly when I go to bed and the problem is I got used to this kind of way since last 2 years.

A woman is not supposed to discharge anything. During the sex, if she is aroused, she will have vaginal wetness, which when in excess in some women, is seen as a discharge. There are some communities in india which practice" female circumcision. If you belong to one of them, perhaps she doesnot have the clitoris. This could make her not enjoy sex. But you would not know it unless your wife knows about it. You can visit a gynecologist and get it confirmed if she has a clitors and erectile tissue in her private parts. If she is not circumcised, and if she is brought up in a strict religious way where sex is considered as" sin" then too her thoughts can prevent her from enjoying the sexual pleasure. If all these are not the issues, then perhaps she does not know what enjoyment is. May be when you have sex, you can spot her clitoris and try massaging it. This is the best you can do to make her aware of the pleasurable sensations of arousal and orgasm. Many men feel that penis thrusting in vagina brings about" satisfation" of the female partner. But this is not true. Very few women get orgasm from vaginal thrusting. But orgasm is more commonly experienced by women who's clitoris gets massaged either during sex by partner or self. So try and see. Or else meet a gynecologist who can help you understand the anatomy and function.
