However, apart from these, there are various health issues that require attention, especially, when “Nutrition” plays an important role in managing these issues.
[su_accordion] [one_second][su_spoiler title=”PCOD” style=”fancy”] Polycystic Ovarian Disease is a set of symptoms due to hormonal imbalances in a female body. In todays’ scenario, the occurrence is increasing among young, matured girls – getting early symptom like irregular menses, weight gain, facial hair, abdominal obesity, dark patches on the forehead and neck, etc. These set of symptoms are difficult to handle and can prove to be hazardous to health. Weight gain is one of the most crucial and life-threatening issue among these women.

Once these symptoms are handled, the BMR improves, which in turn, has a positive effect on “weight loss”! [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”THYROID” style=”fancy”]The thyroid gland, located on the front part of the neck below the thyroid cartilage (Adam’s apple) is a little butterfly shaped organ. It produces thyroid hormones which are in charge of how we feel and how much the body uses energy. It determines how other hormones and vitamins are used in the body and is in charge of the growth and maturation of body tissues. People with thyroid issues will either have a hyperactive thyroid organ releasing an overproduction for the thyroid hormones OR will have an organ producing the hormone very listlessly. Hence, controlling these symptoms accordingly, with a balanced diet and exercise regime (along with the right medical guidance) is a must.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”DIABETES” style=”fancy”]Diabetes is now widely spreading among the common man! Once affected, it acts as a “silent killer” and can damage the other parts of the body. Increased blood sugar levels have many adverse effects on our systems, including the heart, liver, brain, legs, eyes, etc. Hence, managing your sugar levels according to your meal timings and exercise is extremely important. The prescribed diet would take care of all this. It NOT only about managing your sugar levels, it’s about managing your overall health.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”HIGH CHOLESTEROL” style=”fancy”] Cholesterol does not always mean “BAD”! Some amount of good cholesterol –HDL -is required by our body for its normal functioning. However, too much of “bad cholesterol – LDL”- can have dangerous effects on health. The key to good health is to balance between good and bad cholesterol. Hence, along with a good diet and exercise regime, one has to modify their daily regime in order to benefit from the diet. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”CANCER” style=”fancy”] Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of Abnormal cells OR Malignant cells in the body. This uncontrolled growth can lead to various health problems and nutritional deficiencies. Once has to manage the symptoms of cancer, bear the side effects of the treatment and handle the deficiencies as well. Hence, a proper diet regime and supplement support is extremely necessary during this condition. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”ANEMIA” style=”fancy”] Iron is one of the essential minerals. Iron is very important because it helps your body to make hemoglobin. Now-a-days, low iron levels have become a common health issue among the women, especially the vegetarian clan. Hence, in order to reverse this condition, certain “nutritive changes” need to be made. Inclusion of “iron-rich foods” in the diet becomes imperative. Hence, the diet plan is designed to increase the iron levels in the blood. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”VITAMIN B12 DEFICIENCY” style=”fancy”] We have all heard about the B-Complex vitamins, ranging from Vitamin B1 to B6 and B12. A multivitamin will usually fulfill the basic requirement for these B- complex vitamins. However, the most common deficiency seen among these is that of Vitamin B12. Vitamin B 12 can be stored in small amounts in liver, kidney & other body tissues. Its daily allowance for adults is 2.4 mcg. It is found only in animal protein sources like meat, fish, poultry & eggs. All the vegetarian sources are devoid of B12. Vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with defects in the brain and nervous system. Hence, correction of such deficiencies becomes imperative. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”VITAMIN D3 DEFICIENCY” style=”fancy”] Have you ever realized why Vitamin D3 is called the “Sunshine Vitamin?” Although there are two major forms of vitamin D, namely Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3; Vitamin D3 is produced by the exposure to sunlight, specifically ultraviolet B radiation. Vitamin D3 helps in regulating the formation of bone and absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the intestine. Vitamin D3 deficiency has now become common among the metropolitan cities, where sunlight exposure is almost negligible. Also, the ultraviolet radiation doesn’t reach the common man-all thanks to the polluted cities we reside! A few symptoms of Vitamin D3 include bone pain, delayed tooth formation, muscle cramps, poor growth in children, stooped posture, tingling and weakness. Hence, correction of such a deficiency must be done with accurate dietary modifications and supplements. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”KIDNEY STONE” style=”fancy”]Occurrence of kidney stones can be hazardous to our health. Also called as “Renal calculus”, it is a solid concretion that is formed in the kidneys, usually due to the presence of the high amounts of minerals in the urine. These stones usually leave the kidney through the ureter-especially when increased amounts of fluid intake occurs. However, they become a problem when the stone size increases to atleast 3mm (0.12in)- which obstructs the ureter. The most common type of stone contains calcium in combination with either oxalate or phosphate. Kidney stone is also caused by the urinary tract infection. This type of stone is called a struvite or infection stone. Hence, one has to be careful with the dietary restrictions and inclusions prescribed by the nutritionist. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”HIGH URIC ACID/ GOUT” style=”fancy”] High Uric acid levels are not a common health issue usually seen. This is because, uric acid, in its normal levels, is NOT a threat! When the serum uric acid levels increase, you might see depositions of uric acid crystal in the joints, tendons, kidneys and other organs, giving rise to unrealizable pain and swelling. This accumulation is called “Gout”. One has to remember that protein rich foods, usually contain high levels of purine (even fund naturally in a human body as wells as in various foods). The end product of purine metabolism is uric acid, leading to symptoms of gout. Hence, the diet has to be well planned, keeping all the minute dietary restrictions in mind. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”HIGH POTASSIUM LEVELS” style=”fancy”] Potassium is a mineral that takes care of our nerve cell coordination, heart health and muscle coordination. The usual serum potassium levels range from 3.4-5.0 meq/L. However, higher levels are usually found in people with kidney disorders. This is because, normally, high levels of potassium are handled and excreted by the kidneys. Any issue with the kidney, then the potassium excretion goes for a toll! Extreme dietary restrictions need to be followed until the levels improve. Hence, a well-balanced diet regime, along with the correct medication is vital.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”MIGRAINE” style=”fancy”]Migraine, a throbbing headache, is usually elicited by various triggers. These triggers can be different for different people- can be menstrual cycle, stress, changes in sleep pattern, skipping meals, irregular meal gaps, changes in weather, bright light, certain odors, certain foods, any kind of alcohol, etc. Migraine attacks are not frequent. They DO NOT have a set pattern. They may occur constantly for a week or month and then not occur at all!! It is important to realize what triggers this pain (around one side of the head or over the eye) and then, take the necessary measures to prevent it. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”GLUTEN ALLERGY” style=”fancy”] Gluten allergy (OR Gluten Sensitivity OR Celiac Disease OR Gluten Induced Enteropathy) occurs when the body is unable to digest “gluten products”- a substance generally found in wheat and its related products. Digestion is extremely hampered during such conditions and hence, diet plays a very important at such times. Inclusion of foods that DO NOT create any DISCOMFORT on the digestive system is very important. Indigestion, abdominal pain, gas (flatulence), etc. are some of the symptoms usually experienced by people with gluten allergy. [/su_spoiler][/one_second][one_second][su_spoiler title=”HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE ” style=”fancy”] Elevated blood pressure is now a “silent threat” among our society. A rise in the pressure of the blood in the arteries affects the entire body system. A human body can tolerate some levels of elevated blood pressure for months, or even years; but, it can eventually lead to various heart diseases and can lead to heart failure as well! Few dietary and lifestyle modifications are a must in order to lessen the symptoms of high blood pressure. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS” style=”fancy”] Rheumatoid Arthritis, in simple terms, means pain in the joints. Occurrence of joint pains is due to inflammation. These joint pains can occur anywhere, hip pain, knee pain, wrist pain, hand pain, etc. Arthritis can be a very painful and unbearable disease, thus, leasing to depression –like issues in some patients. Daily activities can also be a burden in such conditions. Hence, certain lifestyle modifications are necessary, which would help in managing these painful symptoms. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”OSTEOARTHRITIS” style=”fancy”] There is a lot of wear and tear that occurs at all the joints of the body. This wear and tear leads to joint disorder called osteoarthritis. Cartilage cushions your bones at the joints, and allows bones to glide over one another. If the cartilage breaks down and wears away, the bones rub together, which causes pain, swelling, and stiffness. The ligaments and muscles around the joint become weaker and stiffer. This combination causes Osteoarthritis.[/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”CHRONIC BACK PAIN” style=”fancy”]Back pain (also known as dorsalgia) is pain that usually originates from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine. It becomes difficult for a person to involve in daily chores with a severe back pain. Hence, one must include certain exercises, relaxation techniques along with a well-balanced healthy diet plan in order to combat the symptoms. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”OSTEOPOROSIS” style=”fancy”]With age and age-related issues, “porous bones” can become a major health issue one’s life. Osteoporosis is associated with a loss in bone density and bone mass. Middle aged women who have experienced menopause and have lived a sedentary life are the most vulnerable victims of this “crippling disease”. Lack of Calcium and other minerals can also weaken bones, leading to lose of bone mass and bone density. Good nutrition, along with a good exercise regime show effective results in improving osteoporotic symptoms.

Good nutrition, along with a good exercise regime show effective results in improving osteoporotic symptoms [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”HEARTBURN/ ACIDITY” style=”fancy”] Experiencing those irritating and heavy “burps” is a classic sign of “acidity!!” It is that ‘burning sensation’, caused by the presence of excessive acid in the stomach and/or when stomach acids are pushed upward. Acidity usually occurs due to erroneous eating habits or incorrect postures or pressure in the abdominal area. However, acidity can be triggered by many different reasons. Hence, your diet plan will be tailor-made, keeping in mind all the “DO’S AND DON’T’S” which would help to diminish the acidity symptoms. Also, certain lifestyle changes will also be imparted which will solve the “acidity-issue” to a great extent.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME” style=”fancy”] Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder that interferes with the normal functions of the large intestine (colon) and is characterized by a group of symptoms: abdominal pain or discomfort in association with bowel dysfunction. That’s the reason why it’s called as a “syndrome’ and not a “disease”. The body’s digestive system goes for a complete toss! In this case, minute dietary instructions have to be enumerated in order to come out of this syndrome. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”CONSTIPATION” style=”fancy”] Passing of regular stools on a daily basis is a common daily chore for a normal man. However, reduced frequency or complete absence of stool formation for more than 3 times a week, is termed as “constipation”. With constipation, stools are hard, dry, small in size and difficult to eliminate. Hence, a well-planned healthy diet is required, which is “intestine-friendly” to improve this condition. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”GALL STONES” style=”fancy”] Gall stone formation occurs in the gallbladder, a small, pear shaped sack on the undersurface of the right side of the liver. It contains bitter, yellow-green liquid called bile, breaks up larger globules of fat into smaller, more digestible ones. Hence, formation of gall bladder stones can will surely affect the fat metabolism. This, in turn, will have an effect on the absorption of fat soluble vitamins, namely, vitamin A, D, E and K. Hence, dietary restrictions along with correct medical guidance is a must. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”HAITUS HERNIA” style=”fancy”] Hiatus hernia is the protrusion of the upper part of the stomach into the thorax (chest) and diaphragm. This leads to various symptoms like obstruction in the digestive tract, difficulty in ingestion and digestion. Hence, one has to be extremely careful with meal timings, meal gaps and the portion sizes! Dietary and medical help is a must during such times. [/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”HAIR FALL” style=”fancy”] In todays’ polluted cities, with hectic lifestyles, HAIRFALL is rated high in the list of health issues. Apart from these, certain vitamin deficiencies, medical conditions, extreme stress, crash dieting, etc. will also lead to “hair fall problems”. The papilla, which is an up growth at the base of the follicle, actually produces hair when a special group of cells turn amino acids into keratin, a type of protein from which hair is made. The rate of production of this protein determines hair growth. [/su_spoiler][su_spoiler title=”ASTHMA” style=”fancy”]Asthma (panting or short drawn breath) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the ai rways. There are various symptoms like coughing, wheezing, etc, especially at night- depending on the grade of the health issue.
