Serum anti-Müllerian hormone as a predictor of polycystic ovarian syndrome among women of reproductive age - BMC Women's Health Background Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) affects up to one-fifth of women of reproductive age and causes anovulatory subfertility. Some studies have recommended that an anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) level greater than 3.8–5 ng/mL can be used for diagnosing PCOS. This study aims to analyse ser...

4 Hormones which determine a human's happiness.

Dear friends ...
As I sat in the park after my morning walk, My wife came and slumped next to me. She had completed her 30-minute jog. We chatted for a while. She said she is not happy in life. I looked up at her sheer disbelief since she seemed to have the best of everything in life.
"Why do you think so?" "I don't know. Everyone tells I have everything needed, but I am not happy."Then I questioned myself, am I happy? "No," was my inner voice reply. Now, that was an eye-opener for me. I began my quest to understand the real cause of my unhappiness, I couldn't find one.

I dug deeper, read articles, spoke to life coaches but nothing made sense. At last my doctor friend gave me the answer which put all my questions and doubts to rest. I implemented those and will say I am a lot happier person.

She said there are four hormones which determine a human's happiness -
1. Endorphins,
2. Dopamine,
3. Serotonin, and
4. Oxytocin.
It is important we understand these hormones, as we need all four of them to stay happy.

Let's look at the first hormone the Endorphins. When we exercise, the body releases Endorphins. This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. We then enjoy exercising because these Endorphins will make us happy. Laughter is another good way of generating Endorphins. We need to spend 30 minutes exercising every day, read or watch funny stuff to get our day's dose of Endorphins.

The second hormone is Dopamine. In our journey of life, we accomplish many little and big tasks, it releases various levels of Dopamine. When we get appreciated for our work at the office or at home, we feel accomplished and good, that is because it releases Dopamine. This also explains why most housewives are unhappy since they rarely get acknowledged or appreciated for their work. Once, we join work, we buy a car, a house, the latest gadgets, a new house so forth. In each instance, it releases Dopamine and we become happy. Now, do we realize why we become happy when we shop?

The third hormone Serotonin is released when we act in a way that benefits others. When we transcend ourselves and give back to others or to nature or to the society, it releases Serotonin. Even, providing useful information on the internet like writing information blogs, answering peoples questions on Quora or Facebook groups will generate Serotonin. That is because we will use our precious time to help other people via our answers or articles.

The final hormone is Oxytocin, is released when we become close to other human beings. When we hug our friends or family Oxytocin is released. The "Jadoo Ki Jhappi" from Munnabhai does really work. Similarly, when we shake hands or put our arms around someone's shoulders, various amounts of Oxytocin is released.

So, it is simple, we have to exercise every day to get Endorphins,
we have to accomplish little goals and get Dopamine,
we need to be nice to others to get Serotonin and
finally hug our kids, friends, and families to get Oxytocin and we will be happy. When we are happy, we can deal with our challenges and problems better.

Now, we can understand why we need to hug a child who has a bad mood.

So to.make your child more and more happy day by day ...

1.Motivate him to play on the ground -Endorphins

2. Appreciate your child for his small big achievements- Dopamine

3.inculcate sharing habit through you to your child - Serotonin

4. Hug your child -Oxytocin

Please share the valuable and essential for the current generation 👏🙏

IVF Success Stories | ICSI Success Stories | ACIMC


youtube.com Success Story of IVF/ ICSI Patient treated at ACIMC. Patient first visited in march 2017 with history of sub-fertility for 10 years of marriage. patient was ...


BACKGROUND: To investigate the effect of vitamin D supplementation upon the outcome of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in infertile women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and insulin resistance (IR).

METHODS: Three hundred and five infertile patients with PCOS and insulin resistance undergoing IVF were included in this study. All participants underwent oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Insulin resistance was calculated by homeostasis model assessment. Vitamin D status was measured by assessing circulating levels of 25OH-VD in serum samples by radioimmunoassay.

RESULTS: All the patients were then divided into four groups according to their relative levels of serum 25OH-VD (levels of 25OH-VD≥20 ng/mL were defined as being normal) and whether treatment had been administered prior to COH: Group I (Deficiency Group without treatment [25OH-VD<20 ng/mL]); Group II(Normal Group [25OH-VD≥20 ng/mL]), Group III( Normal Group after treatment), Group IV(Deficiency Group after treatment). In total, 305 women were included in this study. Implantation rates across the four groups were 8.5% (9/106) in Group I, 49% (24/49) in Group II, 49.1% (55/112) in Group III and 14.3 (18/126) in Group IV, respectively. Clinical pregnancy rates were 19.3% (11/57), 65.2 (15/23), 66.7% (38/57) and 23.5 (16/68) in the four groups, respectively. Both the implantation rate and clinical pregnancy rate in groups in which serum 25OH-VD was normal (GroupsIIand III) were significantly higher (P<0.05) than the other two groups. Serum levels of 25OH-VD were highly correlated with clinical pregnancy and implantation rates (P<0.01).There also were significant differences among the four groups in terms of fertilization rate (80±16%, 93±10%, 90±12% and 79±23%), 2 pronucleus (2PN) fertilization rate (59±21%, 72±14%, 76±17% and 66±24%) and cleavage rate (76±20%, 91±10%, 89±24% and 76±25%). Particularly marked differences were observed in the number of high-quality embryos (20±16%, 63±25%, 55±22% and 32±19%) and the available embryos which could be transferred (2.5±1.8, 5.8±2.8, 5.2±2.4 and 3.6±1.9) (all P<0.01). Much higher rates of implantation and clinical pregnancy were observed among the 25OH-VD deficient patients who had received Vitamin D supplements and 25OH-VD levels returned to normal compared to patients in which 25OH-VD levels did not return to normal. Group III, which had normal 25OH-VD levels following Vitamin D supplementation produced the same number of high quality embryos as Group II which had normal 25OH-VD levels (Group III versus Group II; 7.6±4.1 vs. 10.6±5.2, 55±22% vs. 63±25%; P<0.05).

CONCLUSIONS: Our data indicate that vitamin D supplementation can help return serum vitamin D levels in infertile women with PCOS and IR to normal levels leading to an improvement in the quality of embryos and a significantly higher clinical pregnancy rate. Maintaining a normal serum vitamin D level in PCOS women is very important in achieving a successful clinical pregnancy following in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).


People commonly inquire about vitamin and mineral supplementation and diet as a means to prevent or manage dermatological diseases and, in particular, hair loss. Answering these queries is frequently challenging, given the enormous and conflicting evidence that exists on this subject. There are several reasons to suspect a role for micronutrients in non-scarring alopecia. Micronutrients are major elements in the normal hair follicle cycle, playing a role in cellular turnover, a frequent occurrence in the matrix cells in the follicle bulb that are rapidly dividing. Management of alopecia is an essential aspect of clinical dermatology given the prevalence of hair loss and its significant impact on patients' quality of life. The role of nutrition and diet in treating hair loss represents a dynamic and growing area of inquiry. In this review we summarize the role of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, iron, selenium, and zinc, in non-scarring alopecia. A broad literature search of PubMed and Google Scholar was performed in July 2018 to compile published articles that study the relationship between vitamins and minerals, and hair loss. Micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals play an important, but not entirely clear role in normal hair follicle development and immune cell function. Deficiency of such micronutrients may represent a modifiable risk factor associated with the development, prevention, and treatment of alopecia. Given the role of vitamins and minerals in the hair cycle and immune defense mechanism, large double-blind placebo-controlled trials are required to determine the effect of specific micronutrient supplementation on hair growth in those with both micronutrient deficiency and non-scarring alopecia to establish any association between hair loss and such micronutrient deficiency.Plain Language Summary: Plain language summary available for this article.

Antenatal Corticosteroids Reduce Risk of Severe Respiratory Distress in Babies
October 17, 2016
PHILADELPHIA -- October 17, 2016 -- Currently, corticosteroids are recommended for women at high risk of preterm birth between 23 and 33 weeks of pregnancy, but not after. However, a new meta-analysis published in BMJ suggests that at-risk babies may benefit from steroids after 34 weeks and suggests that babies born to mothers who had a scheduled caesarean section (C-section) after 37 weeks may benefit as well.

“Respiratory distress remains one of the most common and serious problems we see in the delivery room that can cause infant mortality,” said Vincenzo Berghella, MD, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The researchers compiled data from 3 previously completed double-blind clinical trials comprising 3,200 women who were 34 to nearly 37 weeks gestation and at imminent risk of preterm birth. Incidence of respiratory distress syndrome was 6.7% without steroids and 2.7% with steroids.

The researchers also included data from 3 trials of 2,498 women who had a scheduled C-section at 37 weeks or more. The incidence of severe respiratory distress in this group was 2.3% without steroids and 1.4% with steroids.

Results showed that a single course of steroids (2 shots over 24 hours) may be useful in reducing lung complications in women at high risk for preterm birth at 34 to 37 weeks, or for women undergoing a planned C-section at or after 37 weeks.

However, corticosteroid administration was associated with a higher likelihood of hypoglycaemia in infants whose mothers were treated. The clinical significance of neonatal hypoglycaemia in these babies is not well known, as these babies did not seem to have any short-term consequences from the hypoglycaemia, and there are not yet any data on their long-term outcome.
