Does high blood sugar worsen ocd symptoms. I am suffering from ocd since last 8 months but my symptoms have worsened in last 2-3 months. I was taking medication and was also doing therapy but suddenly it worsened. What could be the cause?

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Is it possible for periods to get delayed fr as long as 15 days, if a girl is under stress or depression?

Is it possible for periods to get delayed fr as long as 15 days, if a girl is under stress or depression?
Emotional and physical stress can affect the menstrual cycle and delay the period. Stress decreases hormone signals originating in the brain. This results in the failure of the ovary to release an egg. This causes an imbalance in the ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. So yes, stress and depression can be one of the reasons for a missed period. Regards,

Hi Dr, Some day ago when I came home from college I heard someone else in my moms bedroom with my mom. He was none other than my dads boss who was banging my mom. But as soon as I saw them I left my house. My mom does not know about this. What should I do doctor? I am really depressed.

I think you should inform your mom that you know about this man and that if she does not stop it you will be forced to report it. I am sure she will comply. If she does not then you will have to inform your dad. This may ruin the family and destroy your home but if there is anything criminal, immoral or life threatening, then there should be zero tolerance for them. If you hold it to yourself, it may trouble you no end. I know that you may be very disappointed and hurt but these things happen in relationships but you need to act on it appropriately. Always be responsible, respectful and functional.

Dr. doctor yesterday I contacted a Doctor by phone call. He said that weight loss due to depression and chronic anxiety is good To prevent obesity. Since hearing it I'm becoming very confused. Is it true? I'm male, age-29. Please tell me weather it is correct what is it.

The doctor seems to have given an advise which does not seem to be in accordance with medical literature. A person whould have optimal Body Mass Index according to the height. When weight loss occurs in depression and anxiety, it needs to be evaluated for the cause, and addressed accordingly and not a generalized statement as this. All the best.

My son aged about 27 years, basically B. Tech, is in the habit of smoking Grass (Ganja) in excess quantity. He has become hyperactive. Please may I know the remedy.

There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it? The obsession and compulsive use are when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When one smokes pot, the body absorbs THC right away. (If he eats baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for the body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in the stomach before it enters the bloodstream). He may notice changes in his body right after he smokes. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: •Dizziness •Shallow breathing •Red eyes and dilated pupils •Dry mouth •Increased appetite •Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i. E. For example, you can see sounds and hear colors! If he is finding it very difficult to give it up on his own then admit him in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep himself clean forever. He will need to alter his lifestyle, change his friends, his haunts, his habits, etc. He must learn to have fun in clean ways. He must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally he must be able to handle his feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach him about emotions and how to handle them.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

She always fell sick before exam. I think that she has Exam anxiety. please guide for proper treatment.

She always fell sick before exam. I think that she has Exam anxiety. please guide for proper treatment.
To rule out it is anxiety or she really has some genuine complaints you need to take professional help. Some times extreme anxiety and stress can cause physical discomforts. Our emotions speak through our body. Talking yo a doctor and then taking session with psychologist will help her develop coping skills. In the process of counselling the therapist will help her with relaxation techniques, study skills. Deep rooted reasons behind this external behaviour is also need be discussed. Best luck. Help is just one call away.

I am I love with a woman who is about to divorcee and has a child. She was ready for a physical relation with me but did not come for it from one month. Therefore I became serious because of her expectations. Now when I told her that I am serious for her and wants to marry her she rejected my proposal. Please suggest me what to do next should I be in touch with her or should I stop talking.

Dear lybrate user. Marital relationship is never based on physical or sexual relationship. If that woman is not interested in marrying you, there will be specific reasons which is apt for her. You must have tried all you can to pacify her. Nothing worked. In that case, I suggest you not to disturb her. I also suggest online counseling for you. Take care.

How to increase thinking habit while study. How to becom introvert. How to read fast.

Psychiatrist, Kolkata
To increase thinking habbit and read fast you have to practise it regularly. To read fast you have to read the headings and bold letters leaving aside the whole page. I don't know how one can become introvert as it is the temperament of a person which can't be acquired. But one can control one's behaviour and reactions by practice.

I am 18 years old. I am not able to learn my syllabus or un able to study. please tell me some tips to help me to overcome this problem.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Mr, now in this age, the reason for unable to focus on studies might be due to any deviations, attractions, which is common in this age, or any family issues, or any lack of interest in subjects, or not able to nderstand the concept. If you r aware of any of these, then, its in your hands, to avoid thinking abt those issues, taking any assistance from friends/lecturers who can help you better in explaining, or go to group studies. Practice pranayama/meditation daily morning/evening or night, to avoid stress, & to improve concentration over studies. If you feel that you r getting more strained by studying, try to take break, get engaged in any other your interested games/hobbies/activities like reading other books, listening sngs, chatting with friends, family members etc, t get relaxed & then again you go t study again. ** try to take brahmi lehyam[ayurveda-1 spoonful]] or, aswagandha mother tincture [homeo. 15-20 drops in 1/4th cup of luke or normal water]daily twice m/n to imrove memory.
