Kidney Disease Can Increase The Risk Of Diabetes: A New Study By The Washington University

Kidney Disease Can Increase The Risk Of Diabetes: A New Study By The Washington University

Diabetes can increase the incidence of kidney dysfunction is quite well known, but as per a recent study conducted kidney disease can also increase the risk of diabetes. Researchers from the Washington University in the US deduced that a likely culprit of the two-way relationship between kidney disease and diabetes is urea.

The findings, published in the journal Kidney International, are significant because urea levels can be lowered through medication and diet, for example, by eating less protein. These findings are of great help as they give a better understanding of the kidney disease, elevated levels of urea and the increased risk of diabetes in the body.

Take passiflora Q 10 drops twice a day and revert back for further treatment. SOME TIPS WHICH MAKES YOU FALL ASLEEP SOONER- 1. Stop watching the clock. Marking off the minutes only heightens your distress about being awake. 2. Try relaxing your body to fall asleep. Working from your toes to your forehead, tightly tense each muscle group for five seconds, then relax. 3. Find an uninteresting activity. Read something uninteresting. Listen to relaxing music. When you start to feel drowsy, go back to bed. 4. Create a consistent sleeping and waking schedule — even on the weekends and days off work. “What works best is going to bed at the same time and waking up at same time every day 5. Avoid consuming drinks or food with caffeine before bedtime. Abstain from caffeine for at least five to six hours before you plan to retire 6. Make your sleeping environment comfortable. The room should have a temperature that is not too warm or too cold. Find a mattress and pillow with a firmness level that you find restful. 7. One hour before bedtime, stop doing work or other mentally challenging tasks. Switch to something calming such as reading a book. 8. Use your bed only for sleep or intimacy. Do not watch television or play with electronic devices while lying in bed. Try the above things. For more queries contact us.

Palm Oil (Taad ka tel) Benefits And Side Effects In Hindi - ताड़ के तेल के फायदे और नुकसान

ताड़ एक ऐसा पेड़ है जो अपने औषधीय गुणों की ज्यादा लोकप्रियता नहीं है. ये लाल या नारंगी रंग का होता है. इसकी दो किस्में हैं अमेरिकन ताड़ का तेल और अफ़्रीकी ताड़ का तेल. ताड़ के तेल में बीटा कैरोटिन का उच्च स्तर पाया जाता है. इसमें संतृप्त वसा की मात्रा काफी कम होती है. इससे एलडीएल कोलेस्ट्राल को बढ़ाने में मदद मिलती है जिससे कि ह्रदय के विकारों को रोकने में मदद मिलती है. कुछ देशों (दक्षिण अमेरिका, अफ्रीका और दक्षिण पूर्व एशिया) में इसका इस्तेमला भोजन बनाने के लिए भी किया जाता है. ट्रांस वसा की उपस्थिति के कारण लोग अब इसे अपने आहार में इस्तेमाल करने लगे हैं. खराब कोलेस्ट्राल वाले आहार के रूप में इसका इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है. आइए ताड़ के तेल के फायदे और नुकसान पर एक नजर डालें.

1. कैंसर के उपचार में
कैंसर जैसे गंभीर बीमारियों के उपचार में ताड़ के तेल की सकारात्मक भूमिका दिखाई पड़ती है. दरअसल इसमें टेकोफेरोल नाम का एक तत्त्व पाया जाता है. असल में ये विटामिन ए का ही एक रूप है. ये प्राकृतिक एंटीऑक्सिडेंट के रूप में काम करता है. मुक्त कणों को नष्ट करने वाला ये एक शक्तिशाली रक्षात्मक यौगिक है. इससे कैंसर की कोशिकाओं के विकास में मदद मिलती है. ताड़ के तेल का नियमित सेवन आपको कैंसर के खतरे से बचा सकता है.
2. आँखों के लिए
इसमें बहुत सारे एंटीऑक्सिडेंट्स पाए जाते हैं जो कि आँखों के स्वास्थ्य के लिए बेहद आवश्यक होते हैं. ये सभी एंटीऑक्सिडेंट्स कोशिकाओं के उपापचय के लिए बेहद आवश्यक हैं. इसके अलावा एंटीऑक्सिडेंट्स मुक्त कणों को नष्ट करके भी आँखों से सम्बंधित कुछ समस्याओं का निदान करते हैं. ये धब्बेदार अधःपतन और मोतियाबिंद की समस्या को रोकने का भी काम करते हैं.
3. गर्भावस्था के दौरान
गर्भावस्था के दौरान महिलाओं के शरीर में कई तरह के परिवर्तन होने लगते हैं. उन्हें पोषक तत्वों की जबरदस्त आवश्यकता होती है. इस दौरान जच्चा-बच्चा को विटामिन की भी आवश्यकता होती है. ताड़ के तेल में वित्ममिन ए, डी, और ई पाया जाता है. ये सभी विटामिन उन दोनों के काम आती है. इसलिए गर्भावस्था के दौरान इसका इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए.
4. ऊर्जा बढ़ाने में
ताड़ के तेल में पाया जाने वाले तमाम पोषक पदार्थों में से एक बीटा कैरोटिन भी है. ताड़ के तेल का रंग लाल या नारंगी इसके कारण ही होता है. ये शरीर के ऊर्जा स्तर को सुधार करने और हार्मोनल संतुलन बढ़ाने का काम करता है.
5. दिल के लिए
ह्रदय के लिए भी इसका इस्तेमाल काफी फायदेमंद होता है. क्योंकि इसमें अच्छा कोलेस्ट्राल और खराब कोलेस्ट्राल उच्च मात्रा में पाए जाते हैं. शारीरिक स्वास्थ्य को बरकरार रखने के लिए भी ये आवश्यक होता है. कोलेस्ट्राल में संतुलन बनाकर ये ह्रदय से सम्बंधित समस्याओं को रोकता है.

ताड़ के तेल के नुकसान

  • ताड़ के तेल का आधिक मात्रा में सेवन करने से ह्रदय से संबंधित समस्याओं में वृद्धि हो सकता है.
  • किसी व्यक्ति में ये उच्च रक्तचाप से संबंधित समस्या भी उत्पन्न कर सकती है.
  • इसे पचाने में भी बहुत मुश्किल आती है. इसलिए कमजोर पाचन वाले व्यक्ति इसके इस्तेमाल से बचें.

Kidney Stones

BHMS
Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Kidney Stones

Kidney stones (renal lithiasis, nephrolithiasis) are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys.

Kidney stones have many causes and can affect any part of your urinary tract — from your kidneys to your bladder. Often, stones form when the urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together.

Passing kidney stones can be quite painful, but the stones usually cause no permanent damage if they're recognized in a timely fashion. Depending on your situation, you may need nothing more than to take pain medication and drink lots of water to pass a kidney stone. In other instances — for example, if stones become lodged in the urinary tract, are associated with a urinary infection or cause complications — surgery may be needed.

Your doctor may recommend preventive treatment to reduce your risk of recurrent kidney stones if you're at increased risk of developing them again.

SYMPTOMS

A kidney stone may not cause symptoms until it moves around within your kidney or passes into your ureter — the tube connecting the kidney and bladder. At that point, you may experience these signs and symptoms:

  • Severe pain in the side and back, below the ribs
  • Pain that radiates to the lower abdomen and groin
  • Pain that comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity
  • Pain on urination
  • Pink, red or brown urine
  • Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Persistent need to urinate
  • Urinating more often than usual
  • Fever and chills if an infection is present
  • Urinating small amounts

Pain caused by a kidney stone may change — for instance, shifting to a different location or increasing in intensity — as the stone moves through your urinary tract.

When to see a doctor

Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any signs and symptoms that worry you.

Seek immediate medical attention if you experience:

  • Pain so severe that you can't sit still or find a comfortable position
  • Pain accompanied by nausea and vomiting
  • Pain accompanied by fever and chills
  • Blood in your urine
  • Difficulty passing urine

Causes

Kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk.

Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.

Types of kidney stones

Knowing the type of kidney stone helps determine the cause and may give clues on how to reduce your risk of getting more kidney stones. If possible, try to save your kidney stone if you pass one so that you can bring it to your doctor for analysis.

Types of kidney stones include:

  • Calcium stones. Most kidney stones are calcium stones, usually in the form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in food and is also made daily by your liver. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate content.

    Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine.

    Calcium stones may also occur in the form of calcium phosphate. This type of stone is more common in metabolic conditions, such as renal tubular acidosis. It may also be associated with certain migraine headaches or with taking certain seizure medications, such as topiramate (Topamax).

  • Struvite stones. Struvite stones form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow quickly and become quite large, sometimes with few symptoms or little warning.
  • Uric acid stones. Uric acid stones can form in people who don't drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have gout. Certain genetic factors also may increase your risk of uric acid stones.
  • Cystine stones. These stones form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids (cystinuria).

Risk factors

Factors that increase your risk of developing kidney stones include:

  • Family or personal history. If someone in your family has kidney stones, you're more likely to develop stones, too. And if you've already had one or more kidney stones, you're at increased risk of developing another.
  • Dehydration. Not drinking enough water each day can increase your risk of kidney stones. People who live in warm climates and those who sweat a lot may be at higher risk than others.
  • Certain diets. Eating a diet that's high in protein, sodium (salt) and sugar may increase your risk of some types of kidney stones. This is especially true with a high-sodium diet. Too much salt in your diet increases the amount of calcium your kidneys must filter and significantly increases your risk of kidney stones.
  • Being obese. High body mass index (BMI), large waist size and weight gain have been linked to an increased risk of kidney stones.
  • Digestive diseases and surgery. Gastric bypass surgery, inflammatory bowel disease or chronic diarrhea can cause changes in the digestive process that affect your absorption of calcium and water, increasing the levels of stone-forming substances in your urine.
  • Other medical conditions. Diseases and conditions that may increase your risk of kidney stones include renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism, certain medications and some urinary tract infections.
