@ruqayya Hello, according to studies Postpartum Anemia Is More Common and Lasts Longer In Poor Women Than in Those Who Are Better-Off. Between four and 26 weeks after giving birth, roughly one in four low-income women suffer from anemia; the proportion reaches nearly half, however, among those who were anemic during pregnancy and among black women. Treatment for iron deficiency anemia includes iron tablets or a solution injected into a vein (intravenously). Another option is to restore red blood cells through transfusion with blood from a blood donor or to boost red blood cell formation with erythropoietin. It is important to investigate if one treatment is better than another in relieving anemia symptoms and whether the treatment options are safe.

@rikshit Hello, Ovarian cysts are small, noncancerous, fluid-filled sacs that can occur in women who have regular periods. They're a nuisance for many women, often causing bothersome symptoms like periodic bloating and abdominal discomfort. In some cases, ovarian cysts can trigger dull and aching lower back pain. lower back pain when they grow to a larger size they can begin to press on the organs and tissues of your abdomen, leading to pain or discomfort in your back. Usually these cysts do go away on their own but if pain persists you may need treatment and in some cases, the cysts must be surgically removed so you should return to your doctor if the pain continues.

RE: Tenderness in my right breast. when I breastfeed on my left breast I feel pain in my right. What can this be?
@koln Hello, Your description suggests that you could have early lactational mastitis. Lactational mastitis is a condition in which a woman's breast becomes painful, swollen, and red; it is most common in the first three months of breastfeeding. Initially, engorgement occurs because of poor milk drainage, probably related to nipple trauma with resultant swelling and compression of one or more milk ducts. Generally, one considers mastitis as a possibility if at least two of the following are present.
- the lactating mother has a fever,
- lumpiness in the breast associated with pain & tenderness,
- erythema of the overlying skin, or
- a tense breast that continues to remain tense following breastfeeding.
It may be a good idea to consult your GP for an initial assessment examination of the breasts, body temperature, etc. A total WBC count may show polymorphonuclear leucocytosis in cases of mastitis.

RE: Can Eating Cashews During Pregnancy Cause Weight Gain?
@natelea Yes, it is safe to eat cashew nuts during pregnancy, as long as you are cautious. Cashew nuts are an excellent mix of nutrition and taste. With a few precautionary measures, you can get the best health benefits while enjoying the taste. For the good health and development of the baby, a pregnant woman needs calcium, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, zinc, fiber, iron, and vitamins. Cashews have all these necessary nutrients. Eat cashew nuts in moderation, and It will be good for you. Cashew nuts contain carbohydrates and fats in high amounts, which can lead to excess weight gain during the pregnancy phase. These nuts contain saturated fats too. When eaten in excess, they can increase the levels of cholesterol, leading to cardiovascular problems too. Also, Cashew nuts contain oxalate. When you eat excess cashew nuts, the oxalates enter your bloodstream, ultimately leading to gallbladder and kidney stone issues. Although cashew nuts are loaded with nutritional benefits, overeating cashew nuts can lead to unwanted adverse effects during this period. You must always exercise moderation when eating cashew nuts, especially when you are pregnant. Thanks!
RE: Foods that can cause burning mouth syndrome.
@omah Hello, avoid hot spicy foods, as well as food and drinks high in acid, such as citrus fruits, soda, and coffee. Doing so often improves symptoms, as does avoiding alcohol. Modify your diet if you have nutritional deficiencies, which are one possible cause of this uncomfortable condition. Your doctor may check you for nutritional deficiencies in B vitamins, iron, zinc, or folate. Your doctor may prescribe supplements for these, as well as to eat foods high in these nutrients. Thanks!
RE: Is it normal to get low blood pressure after COVID-19?
@nest Hello, Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg. Low blood pressure is generally defined as a blood pressure lower than 90/60 mmHg, linked with symptoms.

RE: Causes of recurring acne
@neron Hello, You should once talk to your doctor once. Recurring acne can appear in all forms but it's usually cystic acne that reoccurs in the same spot which can be very frustrating as this is more of the severe and painful type of acne. Pimples may also reappear in the same place because a pore may have gotten scratched or injured and this injury makes it prone to getting re-infected. Picking on these zits can loosen the cell lining of the pore and cause the clogged oil to go deeper into the skin, creating an inflammatory reaction. Reasons for the same spot could be- That pimple might actually be a cyst that's still on the skin. Poor habits like resting your face on your hand for long period. There are many options on how you can treat or prevent that recurring acne aside from topical product treatments and habit changes.
RE: Exercises to improve immunity.

From moderate exercise to high-intensity exercise, whatever gets you up and moving will benefit your immune system.
