Nov

2016

I often found my grandmother struggling to recognize people she is friend with. Most of the times forget things in her daily life. Everyone occasionally experience forgetfulness. In fact I lose many things at times because of absence of mind. While mild memory loss tends to increase with age and is generally no cause for concern. But sometimes regular memory loss can be due to serious illness. As you age, you may find that you have memory lapses from time to time. This is natural if you forget the name of something you just came across, or you may misplace things more often. While memory lo......

Liver diseases and availability of their treatments

28
Nov

2016

The liver is the second largest organ in the body. It performs hundreds of complex functions, including fighting infections and illness, removing toxins, such as alcohol from the body, controlling cholesterol levels, helping blood to clot or thicken, and releases bile, a liquid that breaks down fats and aids digestion.

As liver disease doesn't usually cause any obvious signs or symptoms until it's fairly advanced and the liver is damaged, it requires immense care. Any trauma or disturbances in normal functioning of the liver can give rise to severe liver diseases, ......

We all experience sort of forgetfulness in our lives like misplacing keys, be blanked on an acquaintance’s name, forget passwords, etc. While we are young we don’t really think about these lapses and ignore by saying you need to eat more almonds, but as we grow old, it becomes quite thoughtful. Although aging comes with certain brain changes, major memory problems are not one of them. For that matter it is pretty important to know the difference between normal age- related forgetfulness and symptoms that may be a sign of a developing degenerative issue.

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that extract waste from blood, balance body fluids, form urine, and aid in other important functions of the body.

Some of the core actions of the kidneys include:

  • Waste excretion: There are many things your body doesn’t want inside of it. The kidneys filter out toxins, excess salts, and urea, a nitrogen-based waste created by cell metabolism.
  • Water level balancing: As the kidneys are key components in the chemical breakdown of urine, they react to changes in the body’s water level throughout the d......

Cerebral palsy is a complex condition, where there is no straightforward treatment, which is because each individual is affected differently. CP is often associated with abnormal brain development or damage to some parts of the brain may be due to poor oxygen supply or internal bleeding. However, the brain injury that causes CP cannot be cured; the resulting physical impairment can be managed.  Even though there is no common truce developed for treating CP spectrum, a person’s form of cerebral palsy, extent of impairment, and severity level help to determine care.
