What is your opinion of doing bilateral salpingo Oophorectomy at the time of hysterectomy. Coz patients are of the opinion that if they undergo Tubectomy,they will land with a BIGGER operation that is hysterectomy.therefore some people come asking to do a hysterectomy after child bearing. If only hysterectomy is done when indicated and later if they require laparotomy for ovarian cyst /tumour,patients question "why you didn't remove these appendages earlier. One patient had hysterectomy,followed by laparotomy again for an ovarian cyst,later another cyst on other side -third surgery .she again developed cystic mass in the pelvis for which she had fourth surgery . Though we leave ovaries ,their function gradually comes down after hysterectomy and they have PMS and osteoporosis. When I have to do a hysterectomy ,I remove the appendages if she is above 40 years and retain them if she is young. What are your opinionsDr. Suvarchala Pratap10 Likes21 Answers

Today my topic is on #Dementia #lossofthinking #Memory loss.Most of the peoples are worrying about this I will try to give solutions. Dementia is a broad term that describes a loss of thinking ability, memory, and other mental abilities. Many things can cause dementia. It happens when the parts of your brain used for learning, memory, decision making, and language are damaged or diseased. You might also hear it called major neurocognitive disorder. Dementia isn’t a disease. Instead, it's a group of symptoms caused by other conditions. About 5%-8% of adults over age 65 have some form of dementia. This percentage doubles every 5 years after 65. As many as half of people in their 80s have some dementia. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. Between 60%-80% of people with dementia have Alzheimer's. But there are as many as 50 other causes of dementia. Dementia symptoms may improve with treatment. But many of the diseases that cause dementia aren't curable. Dementia Causes and Risk Factors The most common causes of dementia include: • Degenerative neurological diseases. These include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and some types of multiple sclerosis. These diseases get worse over time. • Vascular disorders. These conditions affect the blood circulation in your brain. • Traumatic brain injuries caused by car accidents, falls, concussions, etc. • Infections of the central nervous system. These include meningitis, HIV, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. • Long-time alcohol or drug use • Certain types of hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid in the brain Certain physical and lifestyle factors can put you at higher risk of having dementia, including: • Age • Dementia in your family • Illnesses including diabetes, Down syndrome, heart disease, and sleep apnea • Depression • Smoking, heavy alcohol use, poor diet, and lack of exercise. Dementia Signs and Symptoms People with dementia have problems with thinking and remembering that affect their ability to manage their daily life. These are some signs to watch for: • Short-term memory problems, like forgetting where you put something or asking the same question over and over • Communication problems like not being about to come up with a word • Getting lost • Trouble with complex but familiar tasks, like fixing a meal or paying bills • Personality changes, like depression, agitation, paranoia, and mood swings Types of Dementia Dementia can be split into two groups based on which part of the brain is affected. • Cortical dementias happen because of problems in the cerebral cortex, the outer layer of the brain. They play a critical role in memory and language. People with these types of dementia usually have severe memory loss and can't remember words or understand language. Alzheimer's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease are two forms of cortical dementia. • Subcortical dementias happen because of problems in the parts of the brain beneath the cortex. People with subcortical dementias tend to show changes in their speed of thinking and ability to start activities. Usually, people with subcortical dementia don't have forgetfulness and language problems. Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and HIV can cause these types of dementia. • Homoeopathic Remedies 1. Anacardium Orientale – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia 2. Baryta Carb – A Homeopathic Remedy for Senile Dementia 3. Cannabis Indica – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia with Difficulty in Communication 4. Medorrhinum – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia Where the Patient Forgets Names and Words 5. Graphites Naturalis – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia when Indifference Accompanies Memory Loss 6. Kali Phos – Homeopathic Medicine for Dementia when Prostration Accompanies Memory LossDr. Rajesh Gupta6 Likes11 Answers

ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE:: This is a chronic neuro-degenerative disease that usually starts slowly and worsens over time.It is the cause of 60-70% cases of dementia,The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events(short term memory loss),mood swings,loss of motivation,not managing the self-care, and behavioral issues.As a person's conditon declines,they often withdraw from family and the society.Gradually bodily functions are lost and ultimately leading to the death.Although the speed of progression can vary,the average life expectancy following diagnosis is 3-9 years.The causes are poorly understood.About 70% of the risk is believed to be the genetic with any genes involved.Other risk factors are head-injury,depression or hypertension.No treatment stops or reverses its progression,though some may temperorily improve the symptoms.Medicolegal imprtance lies in the fact that whether the will made by them or signed by them is valid or not.The will made before the conditon worsens may be valid if the condition is certified by a panel of medical board consisting of neurophysician,psychiatrists and psychologist who are prolonged interrogation decide the memory loss etc.Dr. Suryakant Bheda2 Likes5 Answers

Good piece of information - my future ,..... mid life crisis n then dementia Depression Midlife crisis 1/21 . Midlife Can Make You Miserable Feel like middle age is closing in on you? You're not alone. A 2008 study of data from 2 million people found that midlife depression spans the globe. In the U.S., it peaks at around age 40 for women and 50 for men, and usually starts to lift in the 50s. Why? People may learn to adapt to their strengths and weaknesses and value life more, the researchers say. 2/21 Depression Trigger: Overload Squeezed between the demands of children, aging parents, marriage, and your job? Feeling sad, worthless, and guilty? Women tend to shoulder more of the "sandwich generation" burdens -- and up to half become depressed as a result. Solution: Make sure you're caring for yourself, too. Exercise, get enough rest, eat healthy, see friends, and get help -- for care giving demands and depression -- if you need it. 3/21 Trigger: Low Vitamin B12 If you're feeling lethargic or depressed, too little vitamin B12 may be to blame. If you're older, you're more at risk for the B12 blues because you may not have enough stomach acid to release B12 from food. Solution: Ask your doctor to measure levels of B12 in your blood. If it's low, talk to your doctor about diet, oral supplements, or an injection to see what might be right for you. 4/21 Trigger: Changes in Sex Drive As men age, their bodies produce less of the important sex hormone testosterone. Low testosterone levels can cause depression, as well as erectile dysfunction (ED) -- trouble getting or keeping an erection -- and a decreased interest in sex. Solutions: Ask your doctor to test the levels of testosterone in your blood. If it is low, ask your doctor about replacement therapy and other treatment options. 5/21 Trigger: Thyroid Disorders Depression can be one symptom of an underactive or occasionally overactive thyroid. And if you are older, it may be the only symptom. Or it may appear with a subtle symptom. In the case of overactive thyroid, it could be accompanied by heart flutters, tremors, or fatigue. An underactive thyroid can cause constipation or fatigue. That's why this very treatable problem is often mistaken for bowel or nervous system disorders in older people. Solution: See your doctor, especially if a close relative has thyroid disease. 6/21 Trigger: Achy Joints Living with a condition that causes chronic pain, such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, increases the chance of having depression. In fact, people with chronic pain are three times as likely to have depression or an anxiety disorder. And depression can make pain worse. Solution: Exercise, meditate, or listen to music. An hour of classical music a day has been shown to ease arthritis pain anddepression. If the depression or pain doesn't lift, talk to your doctor. 7/21 Trigger: Perimenopause and Menopause Hormone fluctuations, hot flashes, and life changes related to perimenopause and menopause can make your mood plummet. If you have trouble sleeping, a history of depression, or PMS, mood swings or depression may worsen during this transitional period. Solutions: For mild depression, try self-calming skills such as yoga or deep breathing. Do things that make you feel better, such as exercise or going out with friends, or find a creative outlet. For more serious, long-lasting symptoms of depression, prescription medication or talk therapy can help. 8/21 Trigger: The Empty Nest If your child has left home, an "empty nest" can make you feel empty. Going through menopause or retirement at the same time may make it harder. Solutions: Try to see it as an opportunity. Reconnect with your spouse, other family members, and friends. Pursue hobbies and interests you didn't have time for before. Give yourself time to adjust. If your mood doesn't lift in a few months, talk to your doctor. 9/21 Trigger: Type 2 Diabetes Do you feel too listless to check your blood sugar regularly? Are unpredictable blood sugar levels making you feel out of control? Depression is a common and dangerous complication of many chronic conditions, including diabetes. Depression also may keep you from taking good care of your diabetes. Solution: Talk to your doctor if you've been depressed for more than two weeks. Talk therapy, medication, and better diabetes control can help you manage both conditions. Depression is serious and if left untreated can be life threatening. 10/21 Trigger: Drinking About 1 in 4 older people who drink heavily has major depression. Some older people start drinking more because of stressful events, such as retirement or a spouse's death. Yet alcohol problems are often mistaken for other age-related issues. Solutions: A combination of medications can treat both alcohol dependence and depression. Individual or group therapy can also help deal with issues that may trigger drinking. 11/21 Trigger: Poor Sleep Insomnia and other sleep disruptions, which are common as we age, are closely related to depression. Insomnia can be a sign that you are depressed, and if you have insomnia but aren’t depressed, you’re at higher risk of developing mood changes. Obstructive sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome also have been linked to depression. Solutions: Talk to your doctor about possible reasons for your sleep problems and get treatment for them. Learn good sleep hygiene habits, such as regular bedtime hours. Exercise early regularly and avoid caffeine, alcohol, or nicotine, which interfere with sleep. Prescription medication may also help. 12/21 Trigger: Retirement If you were forced into retirement -- because of poor health or other reasons -- you might very well be depressed. Factors such as financial insecurity or lack of social support can also make retirement a downer. Solutions: Busy retirees tend to be happier retirees. Learn new skills, take classes, get exercise. Be flexible: For example, if your health makes activities like travel difficult, take in museums and foreign films. 13/21 Trigger: Heart Problems It's common to feel depressed after a diagnosis of heart disease or having a heart attack or cardiac surgery. But many people with heart disease go on to experience severe, long-term depression. And that can worsen heart health. Solutions: A healthy diet and sleep, mild exercise, relaxation techniques, and joining a support group can help you get through the blues. If depression lasts, antidepressants or talk therapy can help. 14/21 Trigger: Blood Pressure Pills Could the drugs you take for high blood pressure or other health problems also be bringing you down? Some blood pressure medicines -- as well as certain antibiotics, antiarrhythmics, acne products, and steroids, among other drugs -- may be associated with depression or other mood changes. Solutions: Be sure to ask your doctor if any new medications you may be taking could be linked with changes in mood. If it is, you may be able to switch to another drug. 15/21 Trigger: Loneliness Social support can help prevent or ease depression. But some kinds of social support may be better than others. A study of people in a retirement community found that those who stayed connected with friends living elsewhere had less depression. Support from within the community didn't affect mood. Solution: Maintain ties with close friends and family members. Explore Internet technology that can give you virtual face-time with distant friends. 16/21 Health Hurdles Any chronic or serious condition -- such as Parkinson's disease or a stroke -- can lead to depression. A stroke can also affect the areas of the brain that control mood. Solution: Be realistic but positive. Learn how to cope with physical effects of your illness. Don't let them get in the way of taking care of yourself and having fun. If you have symptoms of depression, don't wait -- get help right away. 17/21 Trigger: Senior Moments Feeling foggy and forgetful? It could be depression or dementia, a condition marked by memory loss. The signs and symptoms can be similar. Or it could be both -- depression is more common in older people who have dementia, especially Alzheimer's. Solutions: If you don't know what's causing your symptoms, see your doctor so you can get the right treatment, if necessary. 18/21 Trigger: Grief It's normal to grieve after losing a spouse or other loved one. But grief can grow into depression. Memory problems, confusion, and social withdrawal can be symptoms of depression in older people. Both grief and depression raise the risk for heart-related deaths. Solutions: Let yourself grieve. Express your feelings to friends, in a support group, or to a grief counselor. For depression, medication and talk therapy can help. 19/21 Any-Age Mood Booster: Pets To keep your mood up, it helps to have good emotional and social support. But who says social support needs to be human? Studies show that pets can help people have less depression and loneliness and more self-esteem and happiness. Pets are friends with other benefits, too. Walking a dog, for example, is good exercise and a great way to meet people. 20/21 Any-Age Mood Booster: Laughter A good laugh can relax muscles, reduce stress, and relieve pain. And research suggests that a good sense of humor can take the bite out of depression. For humor on demand, create a laugh library of funny books, cartoons, and DVDs. Or try laughter yoga, which uses playful activities and breathing exercises to provoke giggles. 21/21 Any-Age Mood Booster: Volunteer Helping others can help you forget your own problems. Volunteering feels good at any age, but it may hold special benefits for older people. If retirement has you adrift, for example, it can give your life a new sense of purpose and satisfaction. Recent research suggests that it may even prevent frailty in older people. Find a cause that has special importance to you and get involved. Reviewed by 22/22 That’s where ketamine comes in. Among those with treatment-resistant depression, an estimated 50% respond to ketamine, says psychiatrist and researcher Carlos Zarate Jr., MD, chief of the Experimental Therapeutics and Pathophysiology Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health.Dr. Vinod Kumar Goyal2 Likes3 Answers
