Dear , thyroid problem itself causes skin dryness, and itching problems, also thyronorm has its own side effects in which skin allergy is one of the main side effects. In such condition, homeopathic approach may be of help to nullify the side effects of your medications and it also helps in avoiding further complications of hypothyroidism. Thyronorm only balances thyroid levels and never cures it, thats why it is to be taken for life time, and rather causes side effects, where as homeopathy can help over all.

All About ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

All About ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

How many of us had heard about Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) before Tamil Nadu, Chief Minister late J Jayalalithaa was put on it for recovery? Hardly a handful. Patients who are placed on the device have 50-50 chance of survival and while it could not help the late Chief Minister, her condition put a spotlight on ECMO.
 
What is ECMO?
ECMO is a life support device that is put in place when a patient’s heart and lungs stop functioning completely post a cardiac arrest. When the patient does not respond to Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), the patient is put on ECMO.  
 
Function of ECMO 
The core function of the device is to separate carbon dioxide from the blood and add oxygen into it. It takes the load off from heart and lungs, providing critical time to the body organs for its treatment and recovery.
Patients are only put on ECMO, if there is a chance that the condition can be reversed. 
 
How does ECMO work? 
The device drains blood from a vein, which is attached to an oxygenator machine. The machine then removes carbon dioxide from the blood and adds oxygen to it. Depending upon the condition of the patient, the warm blood is either pumped into the body with the help of the machine or is transferred back into the body through an artery. 
 
How long a patient can be on ECMO?

  1. After seven days of being put on ECMO,there are chances of patient getting an infection.
  2. In case the patient contracts an infection, it is recommended to take the patient off ECMO support.

I am suffering from diabetes nd of 58 years with kidney disease. What precaution ,measure and treatment should taken....
lybrate-userji, First and foremost thing o be done is to achieve strict blood glucose control, with fasting blood glucose closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg /100 ml & HbA1c%<6.8. If this is done then kidney damage will not progress rapidly. Pressure should also be maintained close to normal. Plus regular exercise, restricted diet, reduced salt intake are othe precautions to be followed. Plus person should refrain from alcohol and smoking. Thanks.
