Diabetes mellitus often simply referred to as diabetes-is a condition in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body doesn't produce enough insulin, or because cells don't respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger). There are three main types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes: results from the body's failure to produce insulin, and presently requires the person to inject insulin. Type 2 diabetes: results from insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to use insulin properly, sometimes combined with an absolute insulin deficiency. Gestational diabetes: is when pregnant women, who have never had diabetes before, have a high blood glucose level during pregnancy. It may precede development of type 2 DM.
The word "Obesity "is derived from Greek words "Ab" meaning excess and "edere" overeating. It is condition in which there is as imbalance between the eating of food and consumption of the food, resulting in increase in weight. Strictly saying obesity is a state in which excess fat accumulates and deposits itself in various part of the body, thus increasing its weight. "OBESITY” Generalized weight excess due to accumulation of fat beyond 10 to 20 percent of normal range for the particular age, sex and height. It is generally due to excess food intake, often because of psychogenic factors, really to endocrine disturbance and here do familial facts. TYPES OF OBESITY: In short physical state in which excessive fat is stored at various sites in the body. BUFFALO OBESITY: The type of obesity usually seen in Cushing syndrome, confined chiefly to the trunk, face and neck also called adreno cortical obesity. ENDOCRINE OBESITY: That due to dysfunction of the endocrine glands. HYPOTHALAMIC Obesity: The resulting from disturbance of function of appetite regulating centers of Hypothalamus. INCIDENCE AND ETIOLOGY: Ordinary obesity is quite common, especially in middle life, extreme obesity or localized accumulation of body fat the less common and suggest unusual etiologic facts. Although heredity may play a contributory role, three is only one immediate cause of obesity a caloric intake persistently exceeding caloric output. Since the capacity of the body to stored protein and carbohydrate is strictly limited, excess food in any form is converted in to, and stored as a fat. Obesity often is divided in to exogenous and endogenous types.Actually, obesity par- takes dual factors in both exogenous (due to excessive food, absolute or relative) and endogenous (since the caloric imbalance results from a disturbed mechanism, psychological or physiologic) thus even if simple habits of overeating or lack of exercise appear to be the only overt cause. One should search carefully for some abnormal state physical, mental or both that may underline these observations.
Human Heart is wrapped up in pericardium layer, located between the right and left side of the chest cavity. It’s a muscular organ which major function is to pump the blood with the help of circulatory system in whole body. Same time supplies the oxygen along with nutrients to all tissues. It also helps to remove the carbon dioxide from the body.
Kidney stone can be painful. It is caused due to the improper function of the kidney. Stone starts to form when the organ is unable to flush out the trash and hence the gradual deposits form a stone. The allopathic cure for stone involves pumping
There has been work on parameters like(a) what benefits do patients derive from homoeopathy? (b) which patients are treated by homeopathy (c) what risks are associated with homoeopathic tretament and (d) what is the cost benefit??. Results are
Stress is not an obsession but an anxiety for me.Recent research in different fields of diseases is obssessed with stress mania and tends to list this as one of the factors. If sale is any indicator, anti-stress drugs from alcohol to
Homoeopathy scores a point of advantage as this system has the relationship between the drugs and the personality patterns of the patients.With the knowledge of endocrinology, we learn about the hormones of different ductless glands, and their influence over mental& biological make up of the individual.Different glands have different functions but they seem to act synergistically. Very often the disordered functions of one gland with hypo or hyper functions puts us out of tract in selection of a "totality based similar drug". But study of case does indicate as simillimum.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), headed by environment activist Sunita Narain, recently said that most junk food contain very high levels of trans-fat, sugar and salt, enough to cause obesity, diabetes and hypertension, and called for stricter regulations. It needs to be considered by the physician and the people aware of the future health problems of growing children and growing adults. Please remember the strength of the findings of CSE. Some time back an impact of its findings of high level of pesticides in colas in 2003 and again in 2006 had dented sales of Coca-Cola and PepsiCo during 2004-06 because of awareness of their bad effect. �The incidence of pesticides is considered unsafe as the consumer did not know the product contained it�. Such findings are not liked by the promotors of such products but are in the interest of health of growing children and adults fond of fast foods and cold-drinks.
