I had a sharp broken edge that was actually cutting into my cheek once. I filed it down! Just enough to blunt the edge --- but only because I couldn't get a dentist appointment for a few days. That's British dentistry for you!

Thanks a lot.

I am not that concerned about aesthetics. I don't mind wearing braces for a few months if it can correct the problem and avoid future complications.

Since two days, Delhi's cold wave has taken a severe toll on my health. I feel like I have lost quite a bit of weight and body feels weak, almost dead. Add to that, some allergic cold also and my nose is red at the middle and also stiff. Left leg feels dead and so does the upper left back part. What would be the best technique to get rid of it?

Hi All,
My friend slipped and hit the washbasin yester and broke two of her front tooth. We went to the dentist and was asked to return after a week after getting an X ray. The dentist said if any nerve damage it can be diagonized by only then.
Any dentists on the forum can you suggest any good dentists near to Domlur/ Indiranagar/ Ulsoor side of Bangalore. We had gone to Narayana Hridayala dental clinic in Indiranagar. Also any rough estimate on how much it will cost?
Thanks.

Hi all

I just had my Physical Education practical exam yesterday, and that was the first time I ran in about an year. Now my legs are behaving funny, it's hard to move them from one position to another.

Now I've experienced this before (The physical education practical previous year, also the first time I ran in an year ) and my legs got alright in a few days. I was just wondering if there's anything I could do to speed up the process, some kind of exercise or stuff like that.

Any ideas ?

Thanks

The condition in which you are in is called Lactic acidosis, which is a physiological condition characterized by low pH in body tissues and blood (acidosis) accompanied by the buildup of lactate especially D-lactate, and is considered a distinct form of metabolic acidosis.

The condition typically occurs when cells receive too little oxygen (hypoxia), for example during vigorous exercise. In this situation, impaired cellular respiration leads to lower pH levels. Simultaneously, cells are forced to metabolize glucose anaerobically, which leads to lactate formation.

You cannot do much about it except few dietary changes which are mentioned below.

1,Reduce the intake of beef, pork, junk food and animal proteins.(no offenses meant)
2,Excessive intake of Vitamin C also increases the chances of acidosis.
3,Beans, cereals, crackers, eggs, flour products, grains, oily food and sugar should be used sparingly &
4,Prunes, cranberries, and plums form acid and remain in the body which increases lactic acid levels in the blood. Therefore, limit the intake of these fruits in your diet.

If I had the option, I'd opt for retirement from the school and relax in my bedroom with a Caribbean screensaver on my monitor.

Default Cardiologists - ECP / EECP therapy

Hi experts,

I wanted to know about the success rate of EECP / ECP (External Counter Pulsation) therapy

What is EECP? -



Widely accepted in west -


Also available in India now (Ludhiana)-



I enquired a few doctors in Delhi but not all of them were aware of this therapy.

One hospital in Noida (Metro Heart Instt., Sector 11/12) charges 70,000 for 35 sittings (1 hour each). I also enquired the doctor Sibia (as mentione din above video - Ludhiana), he says there are charges of Rs 2,000 per sitting (1 hour) and there should be atleast 20 sittings for a patient. So no. of sitings is flexible here.

Actually, I am looking for this therapy for my mother, who is 61 years old, had already undergone a bye paas surgery, 8 years back. Now she is sufferring from multiple diseases like arthiritis, angina pain and kidney related. She is now suferring from Angina pain and because of creatinine levels, doctors can not perform angiography on her to know the exact blockage. She is on medicines (18 tablets daily) at the moment but still there is no improvement in angina pain. She has been admitted to hospital thrice in the last 2 months.

Please advise what alternate do we have? If anybody knows about the ECP / EECP then please share the facts on it's success rate. These people claim about 80-90% success rate. We are planing to go for this therapy as we don't have any other option left with us.

Many Thanks,
Irish

Default Medical advice required - Cryotherapy

It turns out that what i thought was corns on the soul of my right foot are in fact warts. The doctor at Fortis has recommended cryotherapy as the cure. Any suggestions/advice/experiences?

Warts have roots hence can not be removed by corn caps and other things. The more you remove the dead tissue the more it will grow,

Cryotherapy involves freezing the wart till the root and in the process killing. I underwent this treatment a few years back. Underwent 4 sessions, managed to get rid of two but one stubborn one still remained. The last one after sometime disappeared on its own.

There is a little bit of pain, but nothing much that you cant handle. Some blisters may form but you can manage to do your day to day activity.

For me Cryotherapy was not the complete solution, but it did yield 75% results.

(I answered this in the other forum also but the post hasnt appeared as I am still under moderation, hence answering here too)

Regards

Default Polio Vaccines - Right Frequency or Overdose ?

Hi

My daughter's two years old. She has had oral polio Vaccine 3 times in the last year.

Everyone around is urging us to get her a opv at a camp near our house.

I have seen that these opv are carried in a thermacoal box and administered by just about anyone.

This had me trying to understand the right frequency for such vaccination to avoid overdose & right conditions for the administration of this vaccines.

please advice.

Default Re: Polio Vaccines - Right Frequency or Overdose ?

if its taken on regular basis, then its good enough

However the idea of having the polio vaccine given on the same day to all the people is to ensure that the entire population is covered in one single day so that there is no stray virus anywhere.

Also it doesnt hurt the baby since its an oral vaccine and no side effects too

My 3 month old bundle also got the vaccination yesterday even though she was given the normal scheduled one a month back
