Processed Food

Ever wonder how the dishes you order are served within minutes? most of the hotels keep the food half cooked ready and store it with some chemical stabilizers. On order they re-cook it quickly and serve. The canned food is another option they use. Most of the vegetables are stored in a can by using chemicals. That's why they can serve any vegetable even in odd season. Butter, cheese, oils are stored by adding chemicals. So whenever you consume canned food, you eat chemicals, some of which are potentially toxic also. 

Best thing is to eat freshly cooked food without using any chemicals. Avoid hotel food, bakery food or ready cooked food. Preservatives are bad for your health.

Diagnosing Peripheral Vascular Diseases With Interventional Radiology

MD - Radio Diagnosis/Radiology, MBBS

Diagnosing Peripheral Vascular Diseases With Interventional Radiology

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a circulation issue that affects the veins and blood vessels outside of the brain and heart. PVD commonly strikes the veins that supply blood to the arms, legs, and organs situated beneath the stomach. These are the veins that are located away from the heart. They are known as peripheral vessels.

In PVD, the width of the veins get limited. Narrowing is normally created by arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis is a condition where plaque develops inside a vessel. It is additionally called 'solidifying of the arteries'. Plaque acts towards reducing the amount of blood and oxygen that is supplied to the arms and legs. As the plaque development advances, clumps may develop, which may further affect the vessel.

There are two main types of PVDs:

  1. Functional PVD: This doesn't include physical issues in the veins. It causes accidental side effects. Typically,these fits happen suddenly.
  2. Organic PVD: This includes changes in the vein structure. This sort of PVD causes irritation, tissue harm, and blockages.

The most well-known reasons for functional PVDs are as follows:

  • Emotional stress
  • Smoking
  • Cold temperatures
  • Operating Vibrating machinery

The common causes of such natural PVDs are given below:

  • Smoking
  • High circulatory strain
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol

The symptoms include the following:

  • Cramps
  • Achiness
  • Fatigue
  • Burning

Diagnosis:

PVD can be diagnosed using interventional radiology (IR).

IRis a sub-claim of radiology that gives an image-guided diagnosis, and if required, includes treatment of the organs as well.It has developed as a first-line treatment in the administration of PVD.

Advantages:

IR medications are for the most part less demanding for patients than surgery, since they include no surgical cut.They are less painful and have shorter stays at the hospital. By and large, the patients are discharged on the same day the procedure is done. This mainly includes angioplasty and stenting. The procedure is as follows:

  • Utilising imaging for direction, the interventional radiologist puts a catheter through the femoral artery in the crotch to the blocked vein in the legs.
  • At that point, the interventional radiologist expands a balloon to open the vein that is blocked.
  • Sometimes it is opened with a tiny metallic cylinder called astent.
  • This is a treatment that does not require surgery; only a scratch in the skin the extent of a pencil tip.

Alternative measure:

Angioplasty and stenting have totally replaced invasive surgical methods. Early trials have proven IR to be as successful as surgery for some blood vessel and artery impairments. Earlier, extensive clinical experience demonstrated that stenting and angioplasty are favoured as first-line treatments for more procedures all through the body .

Doctors as well as patients who have been through the same, believe that IR is much better for PVD than invasive surgery, since it reduces the risk of infection.

What Happens To Testosterone Levels With Age?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
What Happens To Testosterone Levels With Age?

Everyone would like to age gracefully such that the age is simply a number and adds to one's charm. However in practice, this may sometimes cease to happen. In more cases than not, underlying reason for the same is the declining testosterone levels.

Testosterone is the powerful hormone which performs a host of functions in our bodies, including:

  • Managing libido
  • Regulating sperm production
  • Promoting muscle mass
  • Regularizing energy levels

A decrease in testosterone levels could be a significant matter in the life of most people. Reduction in testosterone levels with age is nevertheless a natural part of aging.

IN THE WOMB

While one is in the developing stages as a fetus in the womb, testosterone plays an important role in development. This drives the development of male reproductive system as well.

ADOLESCENCE TO EARLY ADULTHOOD

It is while one is an adolescent or in early adulthood that one's testosterone levels are the highest. During puberty, first signs of testosterone or androgens are apparent.

  1. A boy's voice changes
  2. His shoulders broaden
  3. Facial structure becomes more masculine

However with passage of years, testosterone levels begin to decline. This declines at around 1% per year after 30 years of age.

Low testosterone could be linked with sexual dysfunctions, some of which include:-

  1. A loss in libido
  2. Inability to get spontaneous erections
  3. Impotence
  4. Erectile dysfunction
  5. Infertility in women

Reducing levels of testosterone may also lead to changes such as:

  1. Feeling tired all the time
  2. Not getting the desired results with diet and exercise
  3. Reduced performance at work
  4. Change in sleeping patterns
  5. Emotional changes
  6. Increase in body fat
  7. Reduction in muscle bulk or loss of strength
  8. Reducing bone density

With advancement in medical science, doctors have come to discover that low testosterone levels could be the underlying cause of disorders such as

  1. diabetes
  2. hypertension
  3. Coronary artery disease
  4. depression

While the symptoms as mentioned above may be considered as normal part of aging, these may also result from some underlying factors.

These may include:-

  1. A reaction to certain medications
  2. Thyroid gland disorders
  3. Depression
  4. Excessive use of alcohol

It is very important to make sure that one maintains the right testosterone levels in one's body. While going for the right kind of a diet is of extreme importance, one may also choose to go for some herbal supplements.

These herbal supplements should not be seen as steroids, because they are not testosterone enhancers. Instead, these contain the right kind of herbs that would be very useful for one to maintain the right kind of hormone balance in the body, and also make sure that all systems in the body function well.

Keep your testosterone levels to the optimum, only with Stay-On Power Capsules. 100% herbal, Stay-On Power Capsules are free from all steroids, have no side effects on your being and work equally well for men and women alike.

Certain factors predispose for recurrent infection like diabetes, compromised immunity etc. Get your blood sugar, hemogram checked. Certain other investigations can be advised only after detailed evaluation and discussion of symptoms etc. Nutritional deficiencies also should be rectified. Have a balanced diet with more amount of green vegetables, pulses and fruits. A course multivitavins etc can be taken if required. Also confimation of whether what you r calling as boils are actually boils or some other infection can only be made after clinical evaluation.
