Alzheimer's disease in hindi - जाने क्या होता है अलजाइमर रोग?

Alzheimer's disease in hindi - जाने क्या होता है अलजाइमर रोग?

आप अपना चश्मा रखकर भूल सकते हैं, किसी का नाम भूल सकते हैं लेकिन अगर कहीं जाकर आप ये भूल जाएं कि आप यहां क्यों आए हैं, तो सचेत हो जाएं। खासकर अगर आपकी उम्र 50 से कम है तो ये खतरे की घंटी है। अल्जाइमर ज्यादातर 65 वर्ष की उम्र के आसपास होने वाली दिमाग से जुड़ी बीमारी है। ये एक न्यूरोलॉजिकल समस्या है जिसमें दिमाग की कोशिकाएं नष्ट होने से यादाश्त जाने लगती है। ये बीमारी शुरुआत में हल्के-फुल्के भूलने की आदत से शुरू होती है लेकिन धीरे-धीरे खतरनाक होती जाती है। अलजाइमर के मरीज के लिए शुरुआती दौर में तुरंत घटी घटनाओं को भी याद करना मुश्किल हो जाता है। साथ ही पुरानी यादें भी धीरे-धीरे खत्म हो जाती हैं। अलजाइमर की आखिरी स्टेज डिमेंशिया काफी खतरनाक होती है।

ये हैं शुरुआती लक्षण
अलजाइमर में यादाश्त कमजोर होने के साथ-साथ कुछ और भी लक्षण दिखाई देने लगते हैं जैसे- पहले लोगों के नाम भूल जाना, अपने विचारों को व्यक्त करने में कठिनाई, निर्देशों का पालन करने में दिक्कत, किसी बात को समझने में भी परेशानी होती है। बार-बार एक ही बात पूंछना, अपना सामान बार-बार खो देना, बहुत परिचित रास्ते में भी खो जाना वगैरह जैसे कुछ लक्षण शुरुआत में दिखाई दे सकते हैं। दो तिहाई लोगों में मनोवैज्ञानिक समस्याएं भी देखी जा सकती हैं। जैसे बात-बात पर चिड़चिड़ाना, गुस्सा करना और तनाव वगैरह। 
जैसे-जैसे रोगी अलजाइमर की मिडिल स्टेज पर पहुंचता है और आगे की स्टेज पर जाता है तो उसे कई तरह के भ्रम होने लगते हैं। रोगी कुछ ऐसी चीज दिखाई देने की बात कह सकता है जो उसके आसपास है ही नहीं, या उसे ऐसा लग सकता है कि उसे किसी ने छुआ है, कुछ सुनाई देना और किसी चीज की खुशबू आना वगैरह।

आखिर क्यों होता है अलजाइमर
अभी तक अल्जाइमर रोग की सही वजह पता नहीं हैं लेकि न कुछ रिसर्चेस के मुताबिक, अल्जाइमर रोग शायद आनुवंशिक असर, लाइफ स्टाइल और दिमाग को प्रभावित करने वाले आसपास के फैक्टर की वजह से होता है।

रिस्क फैक्टर
कुछ विशेषज्ञों का मानना है कि उम्र के साथ हमारे मस्तिष्क की कुछ कोशिकाएं नष्ट हो जाती हैं या संदेश पहुंचने में गड़बड़ी होने लगती है। अगर आपके परिवार में किसी को ये बीमारी है तो आपको ये रोग होने की संभावन बढ़ जाती है। इसके अलावा डायबिटीज, हृदय रोग, मोटापा और सिर में चोट के इतिहास वाले लोगों में ये बीमारी होने का खतरा ज्यादा रहता है। हालांकिी इस बीमारी में उम्र सबसे बड़ा रिस्क फैक्टर है। ये बीमारी ज्यादातर 60 की उम्र पार कर चुके लोगों को होती है। कम उम्र में भी आप अलजाइमर के शिकार हो सकते हैं। 80 साल की उम्र तक पहुंचते-पहुंचते छह में से एक व्यक्तिा में ये बीमारी देखी जा सकती है। 

जांच
अलजाइमर का पता शुरुआती दिनों में चल जाए तो बेहतर रहता है। अगर अलजाइमर का शक हो तो स्पेशलिस्ट डॉक्टर से मिलें। वह मरीज से बातचीत करके अंदाजा लगा सकता है। इसके बाद मरीज को सीटी स्कैन, एमआरआई और पीईटी जैसे टेस्ट करवाने पड़ सकते हैं। 

बचाव
अलजाइमर को एक लाइलाज बीमारी माना जाता है। अगर आप रिस्क फैक्टर में आते हैं तो बचाव के लिए यहां दिए उपाय किए जा सकते हैं।

1. अपने वज़न का नियंत्रण, पौष्टिक भोजन लें, अच्छी मात्रा में ताज़े फल और सब्जी खाएं।
2. नियमित व्यायाम करें।
3. मानसिक रूप से सक्रिय रहें, कुछ नया सीखें और नए शौक विकसित करें।
4. उचित कदम लेकर हृदय रोग की संभावना कम करें।
5. मेल-जोल बढ़ाएं, दोस्त बनाएं और खुश रहें।
6. मैडीटेरेनियन आहार (मछली, जैतून का तेल, प्रचुर मात्र में सब्जियां) लेने से अलजाइमर के लक्षणों को कंट्रोल किया जा सकता है।
7. हल्दी में मिलने वाले करक्यूमिन को नैनोतकनीक से नैनो-पार्टिकल में एनकैप्सूलेट कर अल्जाइमर का प्रभावी इलाज में मददगार हो सकते हैं।
8. 40 की आयु पार कर जाने के बाद अपने भोजन में बादाम, टमाटर, मछली आदि को नियमित रूप से शामिल करना चाहिए। 

करें योग
योग एक ऐसा माध्यम है जिसे निरंतर करने से इस बीमारी का हल निकाला जा सकता है। एक्सपर्टों का कहना है कि इस बीमारी को शुरुआत में पता लगते ही व्यायाम करना शुरू कर देना चाहिए। इतना ही नहीं निरंतर योग करने से याद्दाश्त भी बढ़ती है। इसलिए अलजाइमर के पीड़ितों को रोजाना 20 से 25 मिनट योगा करना चाहिए।

Brain Stroke: Things You Must Know

BHMS
Homeopath, Ajmer
Brain Stroke: Things You Must Know

A brain stroke can affect anyone at any point of time when the supply of blood to the brain is interrupted. It can threaten major physical functions and can prove to be fatally dangerous at times. The brain stem which is placed right above the spinal cord controls the breathing, heartbeat and levels of blood pressure. It is also in charge of controlling some elementary functions such as swallowing, hearing, speech and eye movements

What are the different types of strokes?
There are three main kinds of stroke: ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes and transient ischemic attacks. The The most common type of brain stroke is the ischemic stroke is caused by narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain, which prevents the proper supplyof of blood to the brain. Sometimes it so happens that the blood clot that has formed elsewhere in the body have travelled via the blood vessels and has been trapped in the blood vessel which provides blood to the brain. When the supply of blood to a part of the brain is hindered, the tissue in that area dies off owing to lack of oxygen. The other variant of brain stroke is termed as hemorrhagic stroke is caused when the blood vessels in and around the brain burstor or leak. Strokes need to be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible in order to minimize brain damage.

What are the common symptoms of a brain stroke?
The symptoms of the brain stroke are largely dependent on the area of the brain that has been affected. It can interfere with normal functioning, such as breathing and talking and other functions which human beings can perform without thinking such as eye movements or swallowing. Since all the signals from the brain as well as other parts of the body traverse through the brain stem, the interruption of blood flow often leads to numbness or paralysis in different parts of the body.

Who is likely to have a stroke?
Anyone is at a risk of developing brain stroke although ageing is directly proportional to the risk of having a stroke. Not only that an individual with a family history of brain stroke or transient ischemic attack is at a higher risk of developing stroke. People who have aged over 65 accounts for about 33 percent of all brain strokes. It is important to point here that individuals with high blood pressure, high blood sugar, cholesterol, cancer, autoimmune diseases and some blood disorders are at a higher risk of developing brain stroke.

There are a few factors which can increase the risk of developing stroke beyond any control. But there are certain lifestyle choices as well which aids in controlling the chances of being affected by stroke. It is crucial to refrain from long-term hormone replacement therapies as well as birth control pills, smoking, lack of physical activity, excessive use of alcohol and drug addiction. A brain stroke is a life-threatening medical condition, and when an individual has symptoms that resemble that of stroke, it is crucial to seek immediate medical help.

Treatment for stroke:

  • Treatment depends on the type of stroke.
  • Ischemic strokes can be treated with 'clot-busting' drugs.
  • Hemorrhagic strokes can be treated with surgery to repair or block blood vessel weaknesses.
  • The most effective way to prevent strokes is through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

What is TPA?
TPA is a thrombolytic or a “Clot Buster” drug. This clot buster is used to break-up the clot that is causing a blockage or disruption in the flow of blood to the brain and helps restore the blood flow to the area of the brain. It is given by intravenous (IV). This can be given only within 45.5 hrs of the onset of symptoms

Time is brain

Remember Every second Loss means brain cells die.

Rush to the nearest Stroke Centre whenever you experience such symptoms.

You can save the brain cells dying if you reach within 4.5 hrs by the CLOT BUSTER. 

Endovascular procedures:
Another treatment option is an endovascular procedure called mechanical thrombectomy, strongly recommended, in whichtrained  trained doctors try  removing a large blood clot bysending sending a wired-caged device called a stent retriever, to the site of the blocked blood vessel in the brain

Stroke prevention:
The good news is that 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. It startswith with managing keyrisk risk factors, including 

  • High blood pressure,
  • Cigarette smoking,
  • Diabetes Atrial fibrillation and
  • Physical inactivity.

More than half of all strokes are caused by uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure, making it the most important risk factor to control. 

Rehabilitation:
The best way to get better after a stroke is to start stroke rehabilitation ("rehab"). In stroke rehab, a team of health professionals works with you to regain skills you lost as the result of a stroke. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist. Homoeopathic Remedies which may be helpful during stroke or after stroke: Creategus, Terminalia Arjuna, Arnica, Glonoine, Glycyrrhiza Glabra, Lachesis, Opium, Staphysagria, Gelsemium, Phosphorous etc. 

Note : Do not take any Homoeopathic medicine without consulting any Homoeopath.

Your brother's hemorrhagic cva most likely resulted from uncontrolled bp. Most important treatment is to control bp strictly now and in future. Regarding his left side weakness, improvement can be only achieved by aggressive physiotherapy.

Doctor I want 2 know that in brain injury or having pain the blood pressure fluctuate or not.

B.H.M.S., M.D. (Homoeopathy)
Homeopath, Surat
If you suffer from high bp, headache occurs. But if you have headache, that doesn't denote only high bp. Because there are many causes behind headache, high bp is one of them. Brain injury can affect blood pressure, but it depends upon type and site of injury.

Causes and Diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS

Causes and Diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome

Asperger's syndrome has been found to affect people at a tender age. The augmented impacts of this syndrome are felt as you grow up. It is a neurological disorder falling under the scope of Autistic Spectrum Disorders. However, it is a milder form of autism and has similarly unidentifiable causes. A person afflicted with Asperger's syndrome will not exhibit stark signs of the disorder. These persons are usually smart and brilliant but face issues in communicating or interacting socially.  

Factors that may result in this disorder

  • Genetic factors could also afflict you with such a syndrome. Thus, it is important to carry your family history while consulting a doctor.
  • Certain changes in a person's brain could create trouble. 
  • Your body could be susceptible to external toxins: many times bacteria and viruses from a polluted environment can lead you to such a serious neurological condition.

Ways to diagnose Asperger's syndrome

  1. A doctor would concentrate on your child's speech: Language development can hint at many underlying health issues. Your child might fail to process speech around him or her which impairs its own speech.
  2. Exchanges in a social setup could be indicative of something: Children or adults could find social 
  3. gatherings challenging. They feel awkward to interact with friends, relatives and colleagues. It takes a lot of effort on their part to exchange basic pleasantries. A doctor will be able to deduce from such symptoms.
  4. Facial expressions while conversing could help diagnosis: A person's facial expressions tell a lot about how they formulate or feel about things. Their words, at the same time, could be contrary. Counselors lay stress on frequent sittings to closely note the gestures made by a patient. 
  5. Comprehension and coordination capabilities: Your child or loved one might find it difficult to handle motor regulated appliances. Comprehending instructions could also be a test. People suffering from Asperger's syndrome face problems in understanding simple things. 
  6. Responding to change will also be taken into consideration: Patients trying to cope with this syndrome are usually not open to change. They take a very long time to adapt to a given way of life; a sudden change will thwart their idea of normalcy.

How to Deal With Insect Inside Ear

How to Deal With Insect Inside Ear

It is that time of the year when insects are all around. Suddenly one feels a buzzing sound or an itchy feel in the ear. To your horror, one feels a live insect is in your ear, which can be extremely annoying and is like a nightmare. Insects often get stuck when they enter our ears as they cannot fly or crawl out. They try to find their way out and their movements inside our ears can be very uncomfortable, painful and can be itchy as well. Moreover, they can easily produce infection.

In this scenario, do not try to remove an insect with cotton swab, tweezers or hair clip as it will make the situation worse and can lodge the insect deeper into the ear canal, which can possibly damag the eardrum, leading to permanent hearing loss. If an individual is not certain about the potential harm taht can be caused by the insect in the ear, one should seek medical care immediately. Insects in the ear are common reasons for visits to doctor's clinic, especially in children.

If one suspects an insect in ear, one may experience pain, swelling, blood or crackling. One may even feel biting, stinging, hearing loss or dizziness. It is best to stay calm in this situation as being active may lodge the bug further in ear or cause it to move further back or cause serious damage to the sensitive eardrum

One way to try to remove a bug in ear is by tilting the ear toward the ground and attempt to wiggle the ear. Grasp the earlobe and give it a wiggle. If the bug is not too far into ear canal, it may fall out on its own. If the bug is still alive and is not too far inside of the ear canal, it may simply come out on its own. If one stays calm and keep objects including fingers away from ears, it is likely that the bug will find its way back out of ear.

One can also try to flush the ear with warm water with a dropper or a bulb syringe. This can be done by holding head upright and stretching the ear canal by pulling the outer ear and then putting a steady stream of warm water into ear. Tilt head to the side to drain out the ear. Do not try this if one suspects that ear drum has been ruptured to prevent additional damage.

To avoid stinging or eardrum rupture from scratching or biting , one may use a drop or two of mineral, baby, or olive oil inside your ear canal to kill the insect. Finally, visit an ENT specialist doctor as they can remove the insect by special suction devices. Post insect removal, one must look out for signs of infection as swelling, dizziness, hearing loss, fever, and pain. Finally follow up with ENT specialist or Otolaryngologist for the final opinion.
