Diet Pills

Diet pills, or anti-obesity medication, help people lose weight by altering certain body processes like metabolism or the absorption or calories. Diet pills have risky side effects, and doctors usually prescribe them only in extreme cases where the benefits outweigh the risks.

Join this online group on diet pills to meet others who want to lose weight and are using or want to use diet pills, and professionals who can help.

Diet, Lifestyle and Heart Disease

Heart disease is called a ‘lifestyle’ disease because most heart diseases are caused by factors in a person’s diet and lifestyle which are under his control. Exercise, a healthful diet, and even oral hygiene or the lack of these can affect a person’s risk of heart disease.

Join our online group on diet and lifestyle and heart disease. Ask your questions to experts and share your experiences.


Otherwise called the 'Strangling Angel of Children', diphtheria was for long a dreaded yet common childhood illness. In fact, until a few centuries back in New England, it was solely responsible for 80pct of the deaths of children under 10 years. Eventhough vaccines have been developed, poor public health measures have caused the re-emergence of the disease.

For more details, our support group on diphtheria is the place to be.

Down syndrome / Birth Defects - Genetic

Down syndrome is a genetic condition that arises due to an extra copy of all or part of chromosome 21. Though Down syndrome cannot be cured and comes with a host of medical issues, people with the syndrome learn several skills during their lifetime. With proper medication, diet, training and care, many of them are capable of becoming independent and leading a normal life. With early health intervention, some individuals with Down syndrome are now capable of going for jobs and fending for themselves.

Join our online support group for Down syndrome – meet other parents facing the same challenges with their children, and carers, teachers, therapists, and doctors who can help.

Drug-Induced Birth Defects

Ever heard of the Thalidomide disaster? This refers to a certain medical blunder caused by the unrestrained prescription of the Thalidomide drug to pregnant women – and as a result, children born with seal like limbs. This, and other drug-induced fetal abnormalities happen due to the teratogenicity of certain drugs.

Guard yourself and keep yourself informed of the hazardous nature of certain drugs. Talk to other would-be parents and gain valuable advice from doctors at Medindia’s support group.

Drugs in Pregnancy and Lactation
