Because contraceptive piils is not for cure, just to control. Cysts keep on coming depending upon duration of cycle. Pcod/pcos is a common hormonal disorder in women which can lead to weight gain and irregular periods. While most women depend on pills to deal with it, these simple changes in your lifestyle will help you deal with the condition in a better way. 1.Nutritional approach: deficiency of micronutrients contributes to insulin insensitivity and compromise ovarian function. So, 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of plain water first thing in the morning (preferably within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit (eat whole fruit not juice), a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. Take simple food like rice n dal in dinner. 6. Avoid fast foods n fried foods7. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 8. Drink lot of water9. Everyday preferably sleep on same time10. Maintain active life style2. Exercise strategies: regular workouts are non-negotiable. They are essential to burn off fat stores for hormonal balance and regular ovulation. You should join a gym for weight training. Do it 2-3 times a week with at least 48 hours in between 2 sessions. Other days you can do cardio exercises like yoga, cycling, swimming etc. Till lock down do suryanamaskar.. Be3. Sleep: adequate sleep is non-negotiable too. Sleeping at a more or less fixed time every day and for an adequate number of hours is a prerequisite to keep hormones in sync. 4. De-stress yourself: love yourself more than anyone else, prioritize your health, learn to say no, take time out to exercise and relax. Pursue your favorite activities, learn a new skill, and never ignore your body signals. For this homeopathic treatment is very effectivefor details consult online.

Hello, its obvious that the patient has not responded to multiple medication bening offered. There has been no conclusion even after extensive investigations. Inspite of significant gi problem the patient has gained weight. To me it appears to be a psychsomatic disorder. He needs to accept that he is having psychological problems which are affecting his body. It maybe worthwhile consulting a psychiatrist for his psychosomatic disorders.

My finger tip of index finger in big in size then rest other fingers and my nail in curved downward what is this?

Clubbing of the fingers, also described as hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (hoa), is an enlargement of the ends of the fingers accompanied by a downward sloping of the nails. You can have primary hoa, which is simply a clubbed appearance of your fingers that is not associated with any health problems. Or you can develop secondary clubbing, which is caused by health problems such as lung cancer and heart disease. 1 clubbing of fingers desherinka / wikimedia commons / cc by-sa 4.0 the clubbing itself is not harmful, but since it can be a sign of disease, it is important that your medical team identifies the cause and that you are treated for your underlying condition. Also known as clubbing is also referred to as clubbed fingers, digital clubbing, watch-glass nails, drumstick fingers, hippocratic fingers, hippocratic nails. Clubbing symptoms verywell/jessica olah symptoms clubbing can involve your fingers and/or toes. It is typically bilateral (affecting both hands and/or feet) and it should be equal in terms of its extent on both sides. If you or your child has primary hoa, then your fingers or toes may naturally appear large, bulging, and rounded. This will be noticeable during childhood or during the teenage years, and it will not change much over time. With primary hoa, other family members are also likely to have finger and/or toe clubbing. 1 secondary clubbing happens gradually, and it causes a change in the appearance of your fingers and/or toes. With secondary clubbing, which is caused by disease, you would also have other features that are not seen in primary clubbing. Features of secondary clubbing include: softening of the nails nail beds that soften and feel spongy nails that seem to "float" instead of being firmly attached to your fingers disappearing of the angle between your nails and cuticle enlargement or bulging of the distal portion of your finger (where your finger meets your nail) warm, red nail beds nails that curve downward and look like the bottom of the round part of a spoon eventually, the nail and skin around the nail may become shiny, and the nail develops ridging. 1 causes primary clubbing is hereditary, and it is passed down via genes. Hereditary clubbing is simply a physical feature, like the color of your eyes or your height. Several genes have been associated with primary clubbing, including the hpgd gene and the slco2a1 gene. 2 secondary clubbing occurs as one of the effects of chronic lung and heart disease. Lung cancer is the most common cause of clubbing. This sign is also associated with a number of other chronic illnesses, including conditions that involve the thyroid gland or the digestive system. 1 there are a number of health risk factors associated with secondary clubbing, including: 3 lung cancer interstitial pulmonary fibrosis lung abscess pulmonary tuberculosis pulmonary lymphoma congestive heart failure infective endocarditis cyanotic congenital heart disease bronchiectasis cystic fibrosis other types of cancer, including liver, gastrointestinal or hodgkin lymphoma inflammatory bowel disease liver cirrhosis gastrointestinal neoplasms celiac disease dysentery graves' disease an overactive thyroid gland how disease affects nail beds the medical conditions that can cause clubbing are generally associated with decreased oxygen levels. Experts suggest that clubbing occurs as your body undergoes changes in response to low oxygen. Several processes affect the nail beds in secondary clubbing. The nail enlargement occurs due to the growth of excess soft tissue beneath the nail beds. The enlargement is associated with inflammation and a proliferation of small blood vessels in the nail beds. 1 a protein called vascular endothelial growth factor stimulates the growth of blood vessels, and this protein is considered a major factor in the physical changes that occur in clubbing. 4 common complications of copd diagnosis clubbing can be subtle, so it may be difficult for you and your medical team to verify this change in your digits. There are a few objective criteria that are used to assess clubbing, and they can help in determining whether you have developed this physical change: lovibond's profile sign: normally, there is a sharp angle between the nail bed and the cuticle. When you have clubbing, the natural angle is lost as the nail angles down instead of up. Distal/interphalangeal depth ratio: the phalanges of your finger are the sections between each bending joint. Your distal phalange, the one that includes your nail, is normally shorter depth-wise than the neighboring phalange. Clubbing is indicated when the opposite is true. Schamroth's sign: the sharp angle between your nail bed and cuticle forms a tiny diamond-shaped hole when you place your hands together with the top of your nails facing each other. When this gap disappears, it is described as schamroth's sign. 4 assessing underlying conditions often, clubbing develops due to a chronic medical condition that was diagnosed years before the clubbing developed. When you start to have clubbing of your digits, your medical team will evaluate you to identify any underlying disease that could be causing it. Even if you have an established lung or heart condition, your medical team will assess your condition to identify any progression that could require an adjustment of your treatment. Tests that you may need in the evaluation of clubbing include: 1 a physical examination to assess for signs such as weight loss, difficulty breathing, skin changes, alterations in your pulse, or altered blood pressure a pulse oximeter to measure your blood oxygen level pulmonary function tests (pfts) arterial blood gas test chest imaging tests, such as chest x-ray or chest computerized tomography (ct) blood tests, including complete blood count (cbc), electrolyte levels, liver function tests (lfts), and/or thyroid tests an electrocardiogram (ekg) or echocardiogram to assess your heart function abdominal imaging tests such as ct or ultrasound a biopsy if there is a concerning lesion noted on an imaging test how lung cancer is diagnosed treatment usually, the abnormal shape and size of the digits do not cause health problems, but any underlying disease that causes clubbing needs to be medically and/or surgically managed, as appropriate. Treatments may prevent your clubbing from worsening and, in rare cases, can reverse some or all of the physical features of clubbing. 1 there are a variety of approaches used to treat the underlying cause of clubbing. Your treatment will depend on your situation. You may need management of respiratory disease, treatment of heart disease, or interventional therapy for cancer. Treatments may include: anti-inflammatory treatment for inflammatory conditions, including some pulmonary and gastrointestinal diseases hormone replacement pacemaker implantation to improve heart function a word from verywell if you notice that your fingers are clubbing, be sure to discuss this with your healthcare provider. Clubbing can be diagnosed in your healthcare provider's office. Although clubbing itself is harmless and doesn't require treatment, it is often as.

Respected Lybrate user. From the above mentioned details (mri). Very little problem is present in your both knees but don't be neglectd. Because in near future the all above's changes are converted into your knees arthritis. Please be careful. Take treatment for your orthopaedic doctor and take advices, precautions and preventive measures. In my side you are taking precautions, preventive measures, life style modifications, dietitian/nutritionist advices. Take diet chart. Ergonomical, postural corrections are required. Which tells your orthopaedic doctor. Or physical therapist. But don't be forget and don't be neglect.

Suspected sciatica pain and degenerative disc, not tested yet. Negative for rheumatoid factor and anti-ccp so previous doctor said probably not rheumatoid arthritis or immune problem, not sure. Ganglion cyst in one wrist from many months ago that ached a little but left untreated. Used arcoxia for some time which did help a little with pain but not too much. Female, 20 years old, 160 cm, 50 kg. Can you give information on what the diagnosis would be and what should I actually do and what medical procedure I have to follow?

Lower abdominal pain can occur from a variety of cause. But as the pain is not severe or constant we can rule out few possibilities like appendicitis, bowel obstruction or perforation, twisting of ovary, ectopic pregnancy, rupture of ovarian cyst or pelvic inflammatory disease. Which bring us to the common cause of mild pains of lower abdomen in females. These can be •gas/flatulence, •constipation, •indigestion, •inflammation or infection of intestine or pelvic organs, •pre- menstrual cramps. Other cause can be •cystitis (i.e. Infection and inflammation of urinary bladder), •sexually transmitted infection (which may be evident from change in vaginal discharge and painful coition) and •urinary bladder stone which can present with frequent desire for urination and painful urination. •general management: gastric and menstrual causes will resolve with time. She can do a little exercise like walking or stretching to release gases and should increase water intake to clear out stools. •she do not need any medication for now. But please visit doctor if pain persist for more than 15 to 20 days with no relief and/or intensity of pain increases. I hope you got the answer you were looking for. If you feel this answer is helpful, please leave a positive feedback.
