Clearly , the Sun isn’t dangerous , overexposure to it is. The same thing applies to Vitamin D pills, till now no one knows what amount is safe and an overdose would lead to HyperCalcemia , which produces Kidney stones, meddles with your heart and brain, and damages your bones. Still, Vitamin D experts are increasing the daily amount needed well aware of the risks. So, some people opt for what they consider the safest way to get Vitamin D – Food. Vitamin D is commonly found in Dairy products , fatty fish, orange juice , egg yolks…etc.
My older sister, Maggie, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of eight, but I remained uneducated. I worried about Maggie, but I wasn’t sure why? Then, two years ago I when I was diagnosed, I got crash course! Up until freshman year, I still asked my mom which type of Diabetes Maggie had-- 1 or 2. There is nothing more frustrating then being asked that question when you’re a Type 1 Diabetic.
"Every day, we are helping millions of patients manage chronic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes - and all of these conditions are made worse by smoking," said Larry Merlo, chief executive officer of CVS Caremark Corporation, in the announcement made last week. "Tobacco products have no place in a setting where health care is delivered." But if the goal really is to turn CVS into a broader health-care company, what about drugstore staples like candy, chips and soda - high-sodium, high-fat, and high-sugar foods? Is the decision an indicator of a more comprehensive change to come in goods supplied by our national chain drugstores? According to Higby, the odds are slim as long as pharmacies remain entities outside
He reported that the intervals between the episodes of biliary colic decreased from one time every 10 days until it became daily. Also, the attack of biliary colic was relieved by intramuscular injection of antispasmodics and analgesics at first, but they weren’t effective anymore. The option of cholecystectomy was discussed and the patient agreed. Pre-operative laboratory investigations revealed normal kidney function, normal blood picture and elevated liver enzymes and elevated bilirubin (AST=174 u/L), (ALT=399 u/L), (GGT=206 u/L), (Alkaline phosphatase=147 u/L), (Direct bilirubin=2.0 mg/dl) and (Indirect bilirubin= 0.6 mg/dl). The patient was admitted to gastrointestinal endoscopy unit for Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
Kidney transplantation is the best treatment for severe CKD patients as this treatment provides better quality of life and survival rate than dialysis. However, lack of donated organs is the main concern. Lots of candidates for kidney transplantation are put on a transplant waiting list and require dialysis until an organ is available. As there is no cure for chronic kidney disease, prevention is of great importance. Drink alcohol in moderation, follow instructions on over-the-counter medications, have healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight and quit smoking are ways to reduce the risk of chronic kidney
First, it reduces mortality and morbidity rates among patients. People with chronic conditions improve their health by managing specific health behaviours, a process that requires behaviour change (Ryan 2009). A 19year follow up study of Jandorf et al (2015) on the impact of patient’s involvement in cooking on their mortality and morbidity shows that infrequent involvement in cooking for themselves (patients diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus) was associated with an increased risk of diabetes-related death and stroke for women, but not for men. In the writer’s opinion, acquisition of knowledge and skills will increase awareness of people’s health and recognition of serious symptoms from what is norm and therefore empower them to make take greater
It was a struggle to even use the bathroom by myself. In addition to the aftermath of the surgery, I had a tube running into my stomach draining fluids, and a tube inserted in where they removed my appendix. Every day they would bring me my 3 meals throughout the day, but I couldn’t bring myself to eat for several days. Along with not being able to eat, I was required to not drink any type of fluids for my stay there, resulting in just getting my mouth swabbed daily to prevent dehydration. Next, they started taking blood every morning and getting me up for physical therapy to get my body used to walking again.
This new diagnosis led to more hospital time, more medications and more doctors informing my mom I needed a transplant, still, she resisted. The doctors were adamant that without a transplant, I wouldn’t live past four years of age. Eventually, the days turned into months and the months passed into another year and I had beaten the odds. I was still sick a lot, made frequent trips to the hospital and faced an uncertain future. The doctors continued to have a less than ideal outlook on my life and advised that I would be lucky if I made it to twelve years old.
“Lizzy? !” Nobody has called me that in forever, I start to form tears in my eyes. “It 's me” I say smiling. I tell her everything that happened in the last 10 years in 15 minutes until we get on the subject of my mom. Apparently my grandma doesn 't keep in contact but knows her address.
