I have a disease dengue what are the precautions of that disease?  How can I get treatment.
There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. -Use analgesics with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. -Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc.to prevent dehydration. -Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. -Use mosquito repellents/mosquito nets when indoors. -When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

The IMPORTANCE of early treatment

Although a person's vision may be good, changes taking place in the retina may require treatment. Most sight loss due to diabetes is preventable if treated early. The earlier the treatment is given the more effective it is.

In a nutshell: Early diagnosis is vital.

Annual retinal screening appointment is quintessential.

Worsening of vision may not necessarily mean diabetic retinopathy. It may simply be a problem that can be rectified with glasses.

Vision lost to diabetic retinopathy is sometimes irreversible. Women with diabetes who become pregnant should have a comprehensive dilated eye exam as soon as possible. Additional exams during pregnancy may be needed.

Multiple studies have shown that controlling diabetes slows the onset and worsening of diabetic retinopathy. Other trials have also demonstrated that controlling elevated blood pressure and cholesterol can reduce the risk of vision loss among people with diabetes.

Treatment for diabetic retinopathy is often delayed until it starts to progress to a complicated or irreversible stage. Comprehensive frequent dilated eye exams are needed more frequently as diabetic retinopathy becomes more severe. People with a high risk of developing complications may need a comprehensive dilated eye exam as often as every month.

To summarize, early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy is important.

Don't wait for the vision to deteriorate to have an eye test.

Inform your eye specialist in case you notice changes to your vision.

Feel free to ask questions or express fears about your treatment.

Strict control of sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol reduce the risk of diabetes-related sight loss.

Smoking increases your risk of diabetes-related sight loss.

Hi I feel negative at all fell like I'm in tunnel. Also I am losing my memory I checkedup with doctor but there is no positive response. I have fear problem also cold you pleasehelp me this problem I do yoga and Jim also every day.

This gloomy feeling is sign of depression. Though you feel like you are in tunnel there is always a light at the end. It matters what we are focusing on darkness in our life i. E. The difficulties or hope of brighter future i. E. Light at the end. Also we were in light before tunnel i. E. Definitely good memories and achievements of past. This tunnel vision is classical of depression. Say to your self that. This too shall pass. Focus on positive happening around you. The smallest things like cold breeze in hot summer or birds chipping. It is helpful to write every positive happening in a day. Learn some meditation exercise, active physical exercises. If still this persists then you may need to visit doctor or psychologist for further help.

My grandfather is very serious at the moment. He is very ill. So what is the symptoms of malaria?
Hello, Malaria is an acute febrile illness. In a non-immune individual, symptoms appear 7 days or more (usually 10–15 days) after the infective mosquito bite. The first symptoms – fever, headache, chills and vomiting – may be mild and difficult to recognize as malaria. If not treated within 24 hours, P. falciparum malaria can progress to severe illness, often leading to death. Children with severe malaria frequently develop 1 or more of the following symptoms: severe anaemia, respiratory distress in relation to metabolic acidosis, or cerebral malaria. In adults, multi-organ involvement is also frequent. In malaria endemic areas, people may develop partial immunity, allowing asymptomatic infections to occur. Medication: If he is having malaria which is confirmed, give him China 200/ twice daily for 2 weeks.

You know the solution already. If you have migraine like headaches and you know precipitating factories then avoid them. For example as in your case. - avoid continued, unprotected sun exposure - have meals at regular intervals, do not fast - avoid foods that you are allergic to - have a restful and good sleep at night to prevent frequent relapses inspite of taking all precautions you need a course of prophylaxis for migraine.

Hello, although your question is not clear but if its only few days passed after the surgery and if there is pain and swelling in that area then you should take rest and avoid exercising. If its been many months after operation then you can do exercising and follow a normal routine life. Take care.

It is your psychological feeling. Masturbation is a healthy habit. It is not at all caused for erectile dysfunction. But after masturbation there is no chance of erection. If we want to enjoy to see your erection, then stop masturbation one week then erection starts. Masturbation and continuous erection both are not possible. First you stop masturbation. Then erection starts. There is now mistake of masturbation. But when press severely then normal erection stops. You need to press again. So why you worry. Better to stop masturbation. Of if you unable then continue. Ok.
