Appetite Hormones - How Do They Impact Your Eating Habits?

Appetite Hormones - How Do They Impact Your Eating Habits?

Are you aware of the function of appetite hormones in your body? Appetite hormones or hunger hormones are the hormones which are responsible for making you feel hungry, and also account for a decreased appetite, which is common for all of us at times.

Leptin and Ghrelin are the two primary appetite hormones, which are produced in your body.

About Ghrelin
Ghrelin is your body’s appetite increasing hormone, which gets released in the stomach. It is responsible for signaling hunger to your brain. It is said that the ghrelin levels in your body play an important role in how quickly you feel hungry after having a meal. Usually, the ghrelin levels increase before you eat. This signifies that you are hungry. They go down for almost three hours after your meal. It is believed that ghrelin plays a more important role in the regulation of your body weight, which is a much more complex procedure.

About Leptin
Among the two appetite hormones, leptin accounts for being the appetite suppressing hormone. It is considered to play a more important role than ghrelin in maintaining the energy balance of your body. It is also believed that leptin is responsible for the regulation of ghrelin. Leptin helps in signaling the brain that your body has enough energy in the form of body fat. It is considered that the more fat you have, the more amount of leptin is present in your blood. However, the level varies based on factors such as when you took your last meal, and your sleeping patterns.

How to control your hunger hormones?
There are certain ways by which you can control your appetite hormones. It can be done primarily by avoiding food items that contain high fat. When you eat, messages are transmitted to several parts of your body, indicating that you have had enough. While consuming fatty food, this system does not send messages as effectively. Consuming fat makes you consume more calories, which in turn lets you store fat and gain fat.

It has been proven that either a diet which is rich in good carbohydrates or a diet which is high in protein, suppresses your ghrelin production more effectively than a high fat diet. It is important for you to get proper sleep for controlling your appetite hormones. Studies prove that sleep deprivation is associated with an increase in your ghrelin levels, appetite, and hunger, compared to people who get 10 hours sleep on a regular basis.

Fair Child - Try This Ayurvedic Remedy And Make It A Reality!

MD Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ahmedabad
Fair Child - Try This Ayurvedic Remedy And Make It A Reality!

I had a love marriage. My husband has a dark complexion, while I am of wheatish golden color. My mother-in-law, like every other typical Indian family, was preoccupied with the color of my skin and desired a light-skinned grandchild. She was convinced that my child would have a dark complexion, due to my wheatish skin color. A country like ours places a huge importance on fair skin and because of this I was determined to protect my child from the distress of being put through ‘fairness tests’ throughout his/her life.

The ‘Natural Brite Kit’ was the perfect solution and it saved me. It only required me to follow specific diet patterns and the intake of certain oral supplements in the sixth month of my pregnancy. And luckily, some months later, a daughter with fair, light skin was born to me. My mother-in law was very happy, all thanks to the ‘Natural Brite Kit’.

This case is only one of the many victories of ‘Natural Brite Kit’, from the large number of people who have used it successfully. This treatment includes the use of herbal treatment and bach flower in its remedies, and comes under Ayurvedic treatment. Not only is it an agent for cleansing, but it also conducts a purification of the body.

This treatment must be administered over a period of one month before the sixth month of pregnancy. The result is that your baby develops fair and smooth skin. The ideology of Ayurveda is that the body can be healed by maintaining a balance of the natural forces within it. And thus, this herbal medication includes healing powers. Ayurveda is an ancient science that boasts of vast aptitude and knowledge in preventive remedies as well as effective therapy.

Though we do not wish to portray dark skin as any being less than fair skin, in this country, fair skin is viewed as an asset. The fact that relatives ask if the infant is fair skinned or not is just one example that proves this point. This medication assures the child better opportunities and an improved present as well as future.

Is this form of treatment safe?

An all encompassing trial was taken of 1200 pregnant women, who were administered with both, a naturopathic diet as well as Bach flower. With a 97% success rate, a study of over five years resulted in 1169 of 1200 women giving birth to fair skinned babies.

What are the contents of the ‘Natural Brite Kit’?

They are;

  1. Herbal supplements

  2. A booklet of literature on this topic

The booklet is an extensive source of data about the principles and mechanisms of action of the “Ayurveda and Bach flower therapy”, the panel of doctors as well as the details of prescriptions for oral supplements.

The herbal medications in the package include:

  1. Suprabhavati Tablets

  2. Apple Grow Pills

  3. Shubangakalp Granules

What is the process of treatment?

The aim of the treatment is the gestation period for pregnant women in the 6th month. The procedure of this form of treatment includes a rigidly controlled diet. Dressing in dark colored clothing is prohibited during this period and overexposure to the sun should be avoided at all costs; these rules should be observed strictly. Along with this, certain supplementary intakes are a must. The details of how to use them are mentioned in the booklet and the supplements have been divided into three different parts.

What would be the expected Results?

A healthy baby with light colored skin.

What is bacterial conjunctivitis how much time it takes to cure and is it harmful.

General Physician,
What is bacterial conjunctivitis how much time it takes to cure and is it harmful.
Bacterial conjunctivitis is harmful to the eye. It needs antibiotic treatment. There is a higher chance of spreading from eyes to other parts of the face like ears and nose, even throat. It is very important to treat it sooner. Cure can take time as per the chosen antibiotic. Hope this helps. Please feel free to talk.

Unfortunately there is no home remedy or medicine that you can use now. First visit a dentist for cleaning and polishing of the teeth to remove the plaque. Following that, brush twice a day. Also use a medicated mouth wash.

Multivitamins & Infertility

Nutrients that can help to support a healthy conception include:

  • Antioxidants “ protect cells from damage by free radicals in environmental and other toxins
  • Coenzyme (Q10) “ an important antioxidant and ˜energy nutrient within every cell
  • Vitamin E “ an antioxidant that may promote circulation to the reproductive system, including to the placenta
  • Vitamin C “ an antioxidant important within the ovary itself. As the developing egg needs vitamin C to mature and ovulate, more vitamin C is used up around the time of ovulation
  • Mixed carotenoids “ Vitamin A (retinoid) is involved in creating DNA. In small amounts it is essential for healthy foetal development, particularly for the immune system and eyes. However, you should avoid taking too much Vitamin A
  • Manganese “ involved in enzyme functions that have antioxidant effects and transfer genetic information
  • Zinc “ one of the most important nutrients for a healthy reproductive system. Involved in sexual development, ovulation and the menstrual cycle
  • Selenium “ an antioxidant that supports normal conception
  • Omega-3 fatty acids “ improving omega-3 fatty acids ensures that a woman’s fat tissue stores retain a reserve of these fatty acids for the developing foetus, a healthy pregnancy and optimally fed newborn
  • B-Vitamins “ Vitamin B12, B6 and folate are three B vitamins significant for the reproductive system

Hi, Please start taking milk and curds or buttermilk as they are rich in calcium. Rest of the milk products cannot be taken in large quantities at this age, as it gives rise to altered lipid profile and obesity. Take some calcium supplements for about 3-6 months as a treatment for osteopenia. Drink plenty of water while on calcium supplements to avoid renal stones. Expose your body to sunlight between 6.00 to 8.00 AM or 4.00 to 6.00 PM for 15 - 20 mins which helps in absorbing Vit. D3 which is very essential for absorption of calcium in the body.

Treatment for Genital Warts

Treatment for Genital Warts

HPV genital warts treatment
While visible genital warts often go away with time, the virus cannot be eliminated once it is in your bloodstream. This means you may have several outbreaks over the course of your life. This makes managing symptoms important because you want to prevent transmitting the virus to others. Genital warts can be passed on to others even when there are no visible warts or other symptoms.

Treatment is required to relieve painful symptoms or to minimize their appearance.

Topical treatments:

  • Imiquimod (aldara)
  • Podophyllin and podofilox (condylox)
  • Trichloroacetic acid (tca)

If visible warts do not go away with time, you may require surgery to remove them. We can remove the warts through:

  • Electrocautery, or burning warts with electric currents
  • Cryosurgery, or freezing warts
  • Laser treatments
  • Excision, or cutting off warts
  • Interferon injections 

Women who have been diagnosed with genital warts may need to have pap smears every 3 to 6 months after their initial treatment to monitor any changes in the cervix. This is because certain types of hpv that cause genital warts are also associated with cervical cancer and precancerous changes in the cervix.

Fungal Infection- Fight It This Summer !

1) Wear well dried clothes. Sweating increases chances of fungal infection, try to change clothes if they get wet due to sweating.

2) Bathing twice a day with a mild PH balanced cleanser will help in keeping your skin fresh and healthy.
3) Boost your immune system to keep the infections away- eat a lot of fruits and curd, keep yourself hydrated by drinking a lot of liquids.
4) If you already have fungal infection and itching, do not buy yourself creams from medical shops without consulting a skin doctor, they mostly give steroid containing creams which give you relief for a while but the infection comes back!

Fungal Nail Infection

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Fungal Nail Infection

Fungal infection of nails (tinea unguium) is common. The infection causes thickened and unsightly nails which sometimes become painful. Medication often works well to clear the infection but you need to take medication for several weeks.

How do you develop a Fungal Nail Infection?

  • Spread from a fungal skin infection. For example, Athletes foot(tinea pedis)is a fungal infection of your toes. This may spread to the toenails if the skin infection is not treated early.
  • Fingernail infection may occur after a toenail infection has become established. The fungus may spread to a finger if you scratch your itchy toes and toenail.
  • Fingernail infections are also more likely to occur if you wash your hands frequently, or have them in water a lot. For example, if you are a cook or a cleaner. Constant washing may damage the protective skin at the base of the nail. This may allow fungi to enter.
  • A nail that has recently been damaged is also more likely to become infected.
  • You have an increased risk of developing a fungal nail infection if you have various other conditions - for example:
    • Diabetes
    • Psoriasis
    • Poor circulation.
    • A poor immune system (for example, if you have AIDS or are on Chemotheraphy)
    • A general poor state of health.
  • Nail infections are more common in people who live in hot or humid climates.
  • Smoking also increases the risk of Fungal Nail Infection.
  • In some cases there is no apparent reason. Fungal germs are common and an infection can occur 'out of the blue'
