3 Causes Of Dysphagia And Its Treatment!

3 Causes Of Dysphagia And Its Treatment!

Ever had tempting food calling out to you, but could not to swallow it? This could be a serious medical condition and should not be taken lightly. Sometimes, certain disorders in the throat or the esophagus culminate in acute difficulties in swallowing. Commonly termed dysphagia, this disease is directly linked to some sort of a neuro cardiac abnormality. Dysphagia is commonly noted in babies and aged people or in other words in those age groups whose immunity systems are not necessarily strong. Occasional troubles in swallowing can go unnoticed and may not necessarily raise the alarm, but if this condition prevails for a comparatively long period of time, then one really needs to get themselves checked.

Some of the most prominent causes of dysphagia have been enlisted below:

  • Muscular and nervous dysfunctions: On certain occasions, the nerves and the muscles that are responsible for transporting food through the food pipe may not be functioning properly. As a consequence of which, food particles find it difficult to navigate through the esophagus and reach the stomach. Such a condition may be spurred by a stroke or nervous diseases like Parkinson's, sclerosis or dystrophy. A weak immunity system, leading to an inflammation and thus narrowing of the esophageal walls may also cause such a disease.
  • Gastronomical distresses: Ulcers or inflammation of the food pipe due to some gastroenteric disorders is also a cause of dysphagia. Such a condition may arise out of innocuous situations like an allergic reaction or on account of more chronic medical distresses like cancers and tumors. 
  • Dryness inside the mouth: The saliva in the mouth helps in debilitating the food particles into digestible form.  However, due to some kind of a hormonal imbalance, if there isn't adequate saliva formation, it becomes a task to swallow the food and results in dysphagia. 

With timely diagnosis, dysphagia can be treated effectively. Treating dysphagia usually involves a few clinical methods as well as a few lifestyle changes.  Certain specialists advice exercising the throat muscles that can possibly ease out swallowing while others recommend specific changes in the diet for the same. Surgical procedures involve dilation and endoscopy which clears out the surface area of the esophagus as a result of which heals dysphagia to a great extent. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Ent specialist.

The test need to be done only after 45 days of the last period, ideally it should be 50 days after the last period due to the irregularity of the periods. Then only you can be sure of the result.

If v r pregnant wic is first sign to no v r pregnant. And wen does implantation happens.
implantation takes place around day 14 and embryo starts to develop releasing pregnancy hormone called beta hcg which rises rapidly. it's measured in blood in ivf babies or tubal pregnancy and not as a routine. when hormone levels exceeds certain levels, it's passed in urine and this is when the periods are overdue by few days certain women do undergo pregnancy related vomiting and nausea others are lucky to have No change. take care.

Ectopic Pregnancy - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

Ectopic Pregnancy - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

In a normal pregnancy, the egg that the ovaries release enters the fallopian tube. If a sperm fertilises it, the fertilised egg attaches itself inside the uterus. However, sometimes the fertilised egg can attach itself outside the uterus. This condition is called ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic pregnancy can be detected in the first few weeks of the pregnancy itself. If your doctor does discover ectopic pregnancy, you would need immediate medical attention. Ectopic pregnancies can be sad and scary. The survival rate of the baby is extremely low, and you may need some time to get over your loss. Fortunately, one ectopic pregnancy doesn't mean you can never conceive again. Many women who lost their first baby to ectopic pregnancy have been able to have a healthy and normal pregnancy the second time around.

The causes of ectopic pregnancy include:

  • An inflammation or infection of the fallopian tube can lead it to become entirely or partially blocked.
  • Scar tissue from a surgery or an infection of the fallopian tube may also hinder the movement of the fertilised egg.
  • Surgery in the tubes or pelvic areas in the past might cause adhesions.
  • Birth defects or abnormal growths can cause anomalies in the shape of the tube.

These causes are usually followed by certain risk factors, such as:

  1. Age (The age group of 35-44 especially)
  2. An ectopic pregnancy in the past
  3. Previous abdominal or pelvic surgery
  4. Pelvic inflammatory disease
  5. Several prompted abortions
  6. Conceiving with an intrauterine device in place
  7. Smoking
  8. Endometriosis (growth of uterus lining tissues outside the uterus).

Fertility treatments:
The signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include:

  1. Minimal vaginal bleeding
  2. Vomiting and nausea with pain
  3. Pain in the lower abdomen
  4. Sharp cramps in the abdomen
  5. Localised pain (Pain concentrated on one side of your body)
  6. Pain in your neck, rectum or shoulder
  7. Rupture of the fallopian tubes can cause fainting due to the bleeding and pain

The treatment of ectopic pregnancy can be any one of the following:

  1. If the pregnancy has not progressed too far, methotrexate will be administered. This absorbs the pregnancy tissue and can save the fallopian tubes.
  2. The tubes may be removed if they have ruptured or stretched, and have started bleeding.
  3. Laparoscopic surgery (operations performed by making minor incisions) may be performed to remove or repair the tubes and recover the ectopic pregnancy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
