Q. I need to know what needs to be noted in a bipolar, which if unnoticed, will have serious consequences?

One of my distant relative who is a bipolar is now an alcoholic…..it’s dangerous to handle him for the kind of problems he creates to his friends and family………..maybe he is not responsible for all these…..but I need to know what needs to be noted in a bipolar, which if unnoticed, will have serious consequences?
A1Merkel- they tend to stop medication without consulting the doc. this can be a dangerous act, could lead to a major depression. you should notice it ASAP cause stopping can even cause suicidal thoughts.
A2Hi Markel, although bipolar is devastating for the person suffering from it and sure alcohol doubles the impact of this devastation. There are some other related disorders if coupled with bipolar is really a problem and will need a medical treatment. They are like eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia where they tend to eat a lot and uncontrollable which is worth noticing as it indicates some signs of other addiction like for drug or alcohol. The diagnosis becomes very difficult if the person is both bipolar and ADHD and the treatment are difficult until correct diagnosis.

Q. I was shocked to note that vaccination in the children could cause autism too. Is that true?

Very recently I have delivered a cute male baby and I could see a change in me after my delivery in the sense that I always think about him. My sister’s son who is 5 years old is diagnosed with Autism and I just can’t see the sufferings of my sister with him. She experiences difficulty in almost all dealings with him right from brushing, giving bah and making him to study….etc. Now I fear that my son should not get in to autism although I know that this is too early to think about disorder in my son. But as my sister’s son got in to this disorder, this has affected me a lot. Hope you can understand my feelings towards my baby. When I browsed through the net, I was shocked to note that vaccination in the children could cause autism too. Is that true? Can I get some idea…..
AHey! I appreciate your care for the new born. But to be honest, fearing at this stage will only trouble you and your baby in the sense that your emotions could catch your baby especially when you breast feed. I want you to be cheerful so as to bring up a healthy child. The signs of autism in the new born are something which should not be thought about at this stage. All you may have to think is to bring up him nicely without any disease. As regards vaccinations that could create autism in children, there is no proof that a vaccine causes Autism. It is only a belief and all the children are vaccinated and not all get autism. It is not a fair idea to suspect vaccination as vaccinations are administered in a new born child after carrying out the necessary tests.

Q. I was shocked to note that genes play a vital role in building muscles Is this possible?

I am , 20 years old. I am always dreaming to build muscle like my favorite hero who maintains 8 abs. Anybody can dream but to live that dream is a difficult task. Out of curiosity, I had discussed my desire to build muscles with my friends. But I was shocked to note that genes play a vital role in building muscles. My family doesn’t have a history of muscles and this fact has put me in to a difficult situation. Is this possible…If so, how can I live my dream? If the family doesn’t have a history of muscle growth, then what happens to the generation which follows them? I need a positive feedback to my query……
A1there's a genetic potential for fitness, like there is a genetic connection and potential for inelegance. but no matter how smart are your parents- if you won't study you won't live that potential, and some one who doesn't have that genetic ability and will study- will be better. the same thing with physical fitness.
A2First of all, I wish to appreciate your friend’s knowledge in the area of fitness. It is indeed a fact that genes play a vital role in determining the muscle power. The genetic factors include the number of muscle cells, the length of muscle bellies, muscle fiber arrangement and muscle cell types which plays a vital role in the building up of muscles. No matter how much vigorous training that we undertake, we cannot beat our genetic predisposition. Hey! Come on! I hope you are not planning to participate in the show but willing to build muscle. You can go ahead with the routine exercises and develop muscles in the normal way without making a comparison which hinders your confidence. It is needless to worry at this stage to simply gain muscle power.
