Is dates good in diabetes can I eat date I have fluctuation in sugar level sometimes 250.
Hi Dates are rich source of fibre, so helps in digestion. It also has many minerals like calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, magnesium and also copper. It has a low glycaemic index and hence is diabetic friendly if taken in the right quantity and frequency. If your blood sugar is 250 only occasionally then I suggest you can have 1 or 2 fresh dates two to three times a week making sure your blood sugars are within the normal range.

How Men And Women Are Effected By Infertility?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Ahmedabad
How Men And Women Are Effected By Infertility?

Infertility is a medical condition in which the patient fails to conceive after one year of having unprotected sex. It is advisable that women who are above 35 years of age and often experience irregular menstrual cycles should consult a doctor on being unable to conceive within six months.

Is infertility a common issue?
Infertility has become a common problem for the new age women. Sedentary lifestyle and stress are believed to hamper the fertility of women nowadays. According to a report, about 6 percent women in US in the age group 15-44 years are infertile.

Infertility: It’s not just a woman’s problem
Infertility is not an issue with only women. Both, men and women can be infertile or are responsible for the condition. The process of reproduction requires mutual co-operation from both sexes. Therefore, they can together contribute towards infertility as well. It is wrong to blame the woman only. According to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth data, it has been found that about 7.5 % men in the age group of 18-45 years (who have has sexual exposure) visited infertility clinics at least once in their lifetime. Of these men, about 18% were affected with male-related infertility issues.

Infertility in men: Men can suffer from infertility due to various factors. The infertility can be detected by analysis of the semen. A doctor can evaluate the concentration of the semen or determine the sperm count, the mobility of the sperm and its shape or morphology. These are important for fertility. Semen analysis can be hampered due to the following conditions:
1. Varioceles - The veins on the man’s testicles are unnaturally large and leads to overheating of the sperms
2. Diseases like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, trauma and infection.
3. Unhealthy lifestyle
4. Environmental toxins

Infertility in women: Women must have proper functioning of the reproductive organs to become fertile. The fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus must be physically and physiologically fit for getting pregnant. A woman may get infertile due to following reasons:
1. Irregular periods that suggests the woman is not ovulating properly.
2. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
3. Functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) or excessive physical or emotional stress causing missed periods
4. Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) or inability of the ovary to produce sufficient eggs
5. Premature ovarian insufficiency: The ovary stops functioning properly before 40 years of age
6. Blocked, swollen or open fallopian tubes
7. Menopause

डायबिटीज को आधुनिक चिकित्‍सा विज्ञान में डायबिटीज मेलिटिस कहते है। ये दोनों शब्‍द की उत्‍पति लैटिन भाषा से हुई हैं। लैटिन में डायबिटीज का अर्थ है प्रवाहित होना और मेलिटिस का शुगर। शुगर प्रवाहित होना डायबिटीज कहलाता है। इसमें रोगी के ब्‍लड में जरूरत से ज्‍यादा शुगर बनने लगती है। किसी एक निश्चित मात्रा तक रक्‍त में शर्करा का होना, शारीरिक क्रिया-कलापों के लिए नितान्‍त आवश्‍यक माना जाता हे। लेकिन किसी भी पदार्थ का आवश्‍यकता से अधिक होना सदा हानिकारक माना गया है। लेकिन कुछ घरेलू उपायों द्वारा ब्‍लड में आवश्‍यकता से अधिक बनने वाले शुगर को नियंत्रित किया जा सकता है।

Dear , bipolar affective disorder, or manic-depressive illness (mdi), is a common, severe, and persistent mental illness. This condition is a serious lifelong struggle and challenge. The treatment of bipolar affective disorder is directly related to the phase of the episode (ie, depression or mania) and the severity of that phase, and it may involve a combination of psychotherapy and medication. I request you to know more about your disorder, understand it and please do not panic. I know several people who manages their bpad effectively. Management is as good as cure. I repeat, do not panic. You will be able to manage your problem with psychotherapy and medicines. Take care.
