Zinc Deficiency - How To Detect If You Are Suffering From It?

General Physician,
Zinc Deficiency - How To Detect If You Are Suffering From It?

Zinc deficiency is one epidemic that people are mostly unaware of. As per the data shared by World Health Organization, around 31% of the world population is suffering from zinc deficiency. The problem is also ranked 5th in the leading factors that cause several diseases. It is also a primary reason why underdeveloped nations suffer from high mortality rate as zinc deficiency is associated with child pneumonia and diarrhea.

Every person, young or old, needs to have a regular intake of zinc for a healthy life, which it is known as an essential nutrient. It is also present in every cell, tissue, bone and fluid in the human body; zinc is especially prevalent in male semen and prostate glands.

Common Symptoms Of Zinc Deficiency

Unfortunately, millions of people suffering from zinc deficiency are unaware of their condition. However, looking out for certain key indicators can help in identifying the problem before it becomes severe. Here are the common symptoms of zinc deficiency that everyone must look out for:

  1. Poor Neurological Function - Zinc is an absolute necessity for neuropsychologic performance and growth. Low levels of zinc lead to attention disorders in infants, which may persist till the adulthood. But, it doesn’t mean you will start pumping your kids with an overdose of zinc. It has been found that zinc is absorbed best with other nutrients and especially when taken with whole foods.
  2. Weak Immunity - Your immune function works best when it has an adequate amount of zinc. It is vital for the growth of T-Cell and differentiating white blood cells to keep diseases at bay. Zinc is also necessary for the structural component of the hormone receptors. They contribute exponentially to have a healthy and balanced immune function.
  3. Diarrhea & Leaky Gut -  Impaired immunity causes zinc deficiency diarrhea, which can become a persistent health problem. Every year diarrhea affects nearly 2 million children worldwide, and most of them are suspected to have a zinc deficiency and bacterial infection. Leaky gut, also called intestinal permeability can lead to a slew of health problems like skin allergies, thyroid problems, and nutrient malabsorption.

Zinc Rich Foods You Must Include In Your Diet

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms shared above, then you might be suffering from the zinc deficiency. To improve the level of zinc in your body, you can either take all natural zinc supplements. But, supplements usually contain several forms of zinc like zinc sulfate, zinc acetate and more. Thus, it is better to include the below-shared foods in your diet, which contain a high amount of zinc:

  1. Pumpkin seeds –1/2 cup: 8.4 mg
  2. Grass-fed Beef – 4 oz: 5.2 mg
  3. Lamb – 4 oz: 5.2 mg
  4. Cashews – 1/2 cup: 3.8 mg
  5. Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) – 1 cup cooked: 2.5 mg
  6. Mushrooms – 1 cup cooked: 1.9 mg
  7. Chicken – 4 oz: 1.6 mg
  8. Kefir or Yogurt – 1 cup: 1.4 mg
  9. Spinach – 1 cup cooked: 1.4 mg
  10. Cocoa powder – 1 Tbsp: 0.4 mg

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

I am 23 years old. I have 3-4 lumps in my breast. Can this indicate any serious problem? I am taking anti epilepsy medicines as I am suffering from epilepsy. Please help.

MD - General Medicine, D.M. Medical oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user I will answer both your concerns one by one. 1. Breast lump As per your history, you have breast lumps which most likely are not painful. Apart from presence of breast lumps, one needs to know that Is there any family history [ i.e history of breast cancer in mother, sister,maternal aunt, cousin ]?size of the breast lumps ,any increase in the size of the lumps, any swelling in the axilla. I would advice a detailed examination by an oncologist/ surgeon to assess the need for further evaluation as many a times on self examination, we mistake normal breast glandular tissue to be lump. However,at this point of time with the limited history I have, I must say that considering your age, there is very high likelihood that it may be a benign [ non cancerous] pathology with a high likelihood of fibroadenoma. SO DON'T WORRY. 2. Epilepsy: For epilepsy, you need to consult your neurologist whether you need a change in medicine or need continuation of the same [ as lot of new medicines with lesser side effects have come recently ]. Epilepsy or its treatment are unlikely to be related to your breast lumps [ if there are any]. Hope I have answered your question.

Gynaecologist,
Suggesting some investigations: Anti-phospholipid antibody test IgG & IgM, Lupus Anticoagulant test( dRVVT/ aPPT/KCT), b2 Glycoprotein-I, BT, CT, Platelet count, complete hemogram, repeat USG/ TVS. Therapy will depend on the inv. Reports. To arrest the reported continuous uterine bleeding for the time being, after excluding any retained POC, mefenamic acid+ tranexamic acid combination tab may be considered other than progestins. Ecosprin dose may be reduced. Once her acute condition is over, subsequently progesterone only contraceptive may be considered.

Its unlikely that you may have conceived. However to settle your doubts do a pregnancy test on home pregnancy kit with first urine sample pf the day. See your doctor if it shows positive. At times one bleeds even after fertilisation but then in your case it appears unlikely since you did not even miss your cycle.

All About Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is a procedure that involves modifications to the digestive system so that the food intake can be restricted or the nutrients absorbed by the body is reduced. This surgery is recommended when exercise and diet may not cause the desired results with weight loss. Bariatric surgery is a group of surgeries that are procedure to reduce weight in the body.
The various types of surgeries that come under this category are:

  1. Gastric bypass: The most common bariatric surgery, gastric bypass is a procedure used to reduce the size of the stomach pouch in the body. Once the size is reduced, it leads to reduced consumption of calories. This procedure also causes alterations in the behavior of the gut hormones resulting in appetite reduction.
  2. Adjustable gastric band: This procedure involves placing an inflatable band around the upper stomach to make a small stomach area above the band. This causes one to feel full just after eating a small amount of food.
  3. Sleeve gastrectomy: In this procedure, almost 80% of the stomach area is removed surgically, resulting in a small stomach pouch being left. It reduces the stomach size, which cause an overall reduction in the amount of calories. Modifications also occur in the behavior of the gut bacteria linked with reduced appetite.
  4. Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch: This procedure involves surgical removal of a large area of the stomach along with bypassing a major portion of the smaller intestine. This procedure may reduce fat absorption of up to 70%. The behavior of the gut hormones change resulting in a decrease in appetite and improved satiety.

Complications
Various complications may result from this surgery such as -

  1. May cause infections in the body
  2. Clots may form in the blood
  3. It can result in bowel problems
  4. Ulcers can form in the stomach

Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. Infertility is one of the most common pcos symptoms. Polycystic ovary syndrome causes irregular menstrual cycles, excessive body or facial hair and polycystic ovaries as its main symptoms. Polycystic means" many cysts" and pcos often causes clusters of small, pearl-sized cysts in the ovaries. The cysts are fluid-filled and contain immature eggs. Homoeopathic treatment cures pcos without side effects and normalize menstrual cycle.

A certain amount of edema is normal in the ankles and feet during pregnancy. You may also have some mild swelling in your hands. Call your midwife or doctor if you notice swelling in your face or puffiness around your eyes, more than slight swelling of your hands, or excessive or sudden swelling of your feet or ankles. Swelling (oedema) can happen in pregnancy because your body is holding on to more fluid than usual. Oedema can happen anywhere in the body, but it's particularly common in the legs, ankles, feet and hands. As your baby grows, your womb (uterus) puts pressure on the blood vessels in your pelvis. Use cold compresses on swollen areas. Drink water, which helps flush the body and reduce water retention. Minimize sodium (salt) intake and avoid adding additional salt to meals.

Single viable motile sperm if reach to cervix is enough to get pregnant. It's not required millions of sperms. There are chances of sperm in prostatic fluid also before ejaculation but percentage is very low. So better do a hcg test to confirm pregnant or not.

Excess Facial Hair in Women - 4 Reasons Behind it

DNB, MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Excess Facial Hair in Women - 4 Reasons Behind it

Excess facial hair growth in a woman results from a condition known as the hirsutism. The growth in hair pattern is exactly similar to that of an adult male. Areas, where abnormal hair growth is visible, are chest, above the lips, etc. These hairs are dark, but fine in nature. They are more commonly known as peach fuzz.

There could be a number of reasons for excess facial hair in a woman:

  1. Genetic reasons: Women from the Indian sub-continent or Mediterranean region are more likely to have facial hair as compared to their American, European and East-Asian counterparts. One of the common reasons for facial hair growth is genetics. It is a trend that runs in the family, it is more likely that a woman will get it. There is not much that can be done in this case except managing the hair growth effectively.
  2. Imbalance of the hormone: Abnormal hormone production can lead to hirsutism. In many cases, there are conditions where female starts producing male hormones leading to abnormal hair growth in the face. One of the most common causes of facial hair growth is polycystic ovarian syndrome (POS). This again is a hormonal imbalance leading to facial hair growth. Even adrenal gland related disorders such as Cushing’s syndrome, Adrenal cancer and congenital adrenal hyperplasia can lead to excess hair.
  3. Medications: Certain medication can lead to excess hair growth in the face. For instance, the certain steroid such as anabolic can lead to excess hair growth. Minoxidil is also known to cause hirsutism if taken in excess of 1 ml per day. Other medication related to testosterone and cyclosporine can lead to excess facial hair in females. It is advised to follow the doctor’s advice before consuming any of these medicines.
  4. Androgens: Although androgen is a male hormone, it is present in minute quantities in women too. Facial hair increase is nothing, but the sudden increased production of androgen in a female. Even birth control pills can lead to an increased production of androgen in the body. In these cases, it is very important to seek medical advice.

Treatment and remedies:
Medical help:
One should get medical help at the earliest if one of these conditions matches their symptoms:

  • The hair growth is sudden and abrupt.
  • One witness male features such as increases muscle, acne and reduced breast size.
  • Certain medication has led to the hair growth.

Home Remedies:

  • Usage of shaving, plucking and depilatory cream
  • Laser hair reduction procedure shows immediate results in stopping and countering any further hair growth.
  • Electrolysis can be tried to permanently damage the follicles.
  • Weight loss is another good solution to excess hair growth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
