Some of the important symptoms to look out for high cholesterol.

Cholesterol is one of the leading causes of many problems, including heart problems. Cholesterol is lipids that dissolved in all the cells of the body. It also requires physical activity up to a limit. This is essential for bile production. It is also necessary to burn fat.

Cholesterol is also essential for production of certain hormones that lead to heart health. But the problem is when increase in the limit of cholesterol. Moreover high cholesterol levels increase the risk of heart attacks.

The body has good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Good cholesterol brings good benefits. This is known as HDL cholesterol. Bad cholesterol is LDL cholesterol. When cholesterol is high, it store up in the blood vessels. This causes the flow of blood to the heart  block and can lead to many problems, including heart attacks. Let's look at some of the symptoms of high cholesterol.

1. Chest pain is a symptom of many ailments, including heart attacks. But it can also experienced due to high cholesterol levels. This type of pain may caused by obstruction of blood flow to heart.

2. LDL cholesterol, i.e bad cholesterol, can cause indigestion and gas trouble. If for some other reason these start suddenly, it may a symptom of high cholesterol.

3. Swelling and numbness in the hand are the initial symptoms of high cholesterol. It caused by increased blood cholesterol. Due to this muscles do not get enough oxygen.

4. Bad breath is a problem for people with high cholesterol. This condition called halitosis. The reason for this is a factor in the lever. When high cholesterol is high, the liver cannot digest it properly. It causes reduction of saliva in mouth and increases bad breath.

5. When cholesterol is high, blood flow interrupted and can lead to various problems like dizziness and headaches.

6. Fatigue can caused by a variety of causes. It may due to certain physical conditions or high atmosphere temperature. But cholesterol can often cause fatigue. This is because the blood flow in the body interrupted by cholesterol and the flow of oxygen.

7. Skin problems are another symptom of high cholesterol levels. Redness and itching in the skin are more likely. 

Six possible symptoms of kidney failure

It is common for a healthy person to urinate once a night and three to four times a day. But getting up to urinate more often at night may sign of kidney failure. In addition, be careful when urinating if you seen foaming, or bubbles.

Abnormal thin urine, urine color like dark tea, blood in urine, difficulty urinating, etc. are indicates the sign of kidney failure.

Red blood cell production and growth disrupted by kidney failure. Due to this, the red blood cells are unable to supply the oxygen needed for their functioning, causing the brain and muscles to fail. Anemia Suffering is severe. Some people getting cold.

Shortness of oxygen and swelling of the lungs can cause shortness of breath. Lack of oxygen for the proper functioning of the brain can cause the head to become dull and unable to concentrate.
 
Do not ignore swellings found on face, feet and hands. This is because the damaged kidneys fail to pump out excess water in the body.

The smell of ammonia on the breath is a sign of kidney disease.  Damaged kidneys has no enough capacity to eliminate the waste in the blood. Loss of appetite and taste, vomiting and nausea are other symptoms.

pay attention; If you see any of these symptoms, you should immediately consult with a Nephrologist.

Gut Troubles Pain, Gassiness, Bloating, and More

Send us your comments

Illustration of stomach
Everyone has pain or discomfort in their gut occasionally. Maybe you ate something that didn’t agree with you. Or you had an infection that made you sick to your stomach for a few days.

But if pain and other gut symptoms go on for weeks or longer, something more serious might be wrong. Digestive system diseases and disorders are very common. Around 60 to 70 million people in the U.S. live with a digestive disease.

It’s important not to ignore symptoms in your gut. Many digestive disorders are easiest to treat when they first develop.

Potential Causes

One of the most serious gut disorders is inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), although it’s not very common. IBD occurs when immune system cells in the gut overreact to a perceived threat to your body. Often, that “threat” is the normal bugs that make up the microbiome—the microscopic creatures like bacteria, fungi, and viruses—that live in your gut. This overreaction can damage the digestive (gastrointestinal or GI) tract.

The two main types of IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. “Crohn’s can occur anywhere in the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus,” says Dr. Judy Cho, an IBD expert at Mount Sinai. Ulcerative colitis happens only in the large intestine.

These two diseases also differ in how deeply they can damage tissue. “Ulcerative colitis causes damage in the gut lining,” explains Dr. Dermot McGovern, who studies IBD at Cedars-Sinai. “Crohn’s disease can go all the way through the gut.” Severe cases of Crohn’s can lead to narrowing of the intestines and even holes in the gut.

Other conditions can harm the lining of the stomach and lead to a type of inflammation called gastritis. The most common cause of gastritis is infection with bacteria called Helicobacter pylori. Other causes include the long-term use of some pain medications. If left untreated, gastritis can lead to painful ulcers.
Twelve percent of people in the U.S. have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). “This is a very common disorder. It’s characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits,” says Dr. Anthony Lembo, an IBS researcher at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Researchers don’t understand exactly what causes IBS. It may have different causes in different people. Sometimes it involves problems with how the brain and gut work together.

Other things that can cause pain and discomfort in the GI tract are acid reflux or food sensitivities.

Pinpointing the Problem

It can be tricky to diagnose a digestive disease because they share a lot of symptoms, explains Cho. Symptoms of many gut conditions include pain, gassiness, bloating, and diarrhea.

“But for IBD, there are several red-flag symptoms,” she says. These are blood in the stool, weight loss, and signs of inflammation found in a blood test. A sign of IBD in children is failure to grow, Cho adds.

IBS can give some people diarrhea and others constipation. Some people go back and forth between the two.

Gastritis and food sensitivities can also cause long-term gut discomfort. To figure out what’s causing gut troubles, doctors may need to run a variety of tests. These can include blood tests and a stool test to look for infection.

Some people may have an imaging test, such as a CT scan. Others may need to have an endoscopy. Endoscopy uses a long, flexible tube with a tiny camera on the end to look in the intestines or stomach.

Treating Pain and Discomfort

While symptoms for different gut disorders can be similar, treatments vary widely. For gastritis caused by bacterial infection, antibiotics are used to kill the germs. If medications are causing gastritis, switching to a different kind of drug will usually allow the stomach to heal.

Food sensitivities can be managed by changing your diet. A nutritionist can help you figure out what foods might be irritating your gut. Acid reflux can also often be improved by changes in your diet and medication.

Treatment isn’t one-size-fits-all for IBS, Lembo explains, because it can have different causes. Some people can get some relief by adjusting their diet. (See the Wise Choices box for foods that can trigger gut symptoms.)

“We also tell patients to eat two to three meals a day, maybe have a snack or two. But don’t eat all day long. Give your gut a chance to rest,” he says.
And while stress doesn’t cause IBS, it can trigger flare-ups of symptoms in many people, says Lembo. Stress reduction strategies and cognitive behavior therapy—a type of talk therapy—can help some people manage symptoms of IBS.

IBD is harder to treat than most gut disorders. “It’s impossible to cure IBD right now,” says Cho. Treatments focus on stopping inflammation long enough to allow the gut tissue to heal, she explains.

Some medications used for IBD control inflammation. Other newer drugs suppress the immune system. But these newer drugs can have serious side effects and are usually only used when others don’t work.

“Research has discovered that the earlier you use these medications, the more likely you are to respond,” says McGovern. So, people with high-risk disease may get these drugs first now, he explains.

Looking for Better Treatments

Researchers are searching for new ways to prevent and manage gut disorders. Lembo, for example, is testing whether peppermint oil can help the gut muscles relax in people with IBS.

Existing treatments for IBD only work for about a third of people who try them. And even then, McGovern says, they may lose their effects over time.

Both Cho and McGovern are working to understand the genetics of IBD. This information could be used at all stages of the disease, explains Cho. For example, if a test could identify children at higher risk of developing IBD later in life, “theoretically it could be prevented,” she says. Strategies could include giving anti-inflammatory drugs before IBD develops or changing the gut microbiome to prevent an immune attack.

“And what we’re all interested in is: Can we use some of these genetic signatures to identify new drug targets for IBD?” adds McGovern. That could also eventually help predict who would most likely benefit from a drug, he says.
One of the newest drugs being tested for IBD was based on a genetic discovery, Cho explains. “There’s increasing precision in treatment,” she says. “Using genetic knowledge to help choose therapies for IBD is something that I think is doable in the next five to 10 years.”

For now, talk with your doctor if gut discomfort or pain are impacting your quality of life. Available treatments can help most people get their insides back in order again.

According to a 2018 survey by the International Market Research Company, Ipsos, 77% of French people have taken homeopathic medicines at least once.

58% of people have used homeopathic medicine many times. More than 40% have been using homeopathic medicines for more than 10 years.

In France, there are many universities and private colleges for homeopathy. French health minister has announced plans to abolish reimbursement for homeopathic medicines in 2019. Although it is expected to be implemented by 2021, there is still strong opposition from homeopathic patients against this.

The professor of homeopathy and president of the Homeopathic Doctors Association of the French Institute of Scientific Homeo pulse in France, Albert Claude Lumon says, currently only 10% of reimbursement give government for homeopathic medicines, no problem even if it is stopped.

But one problem is that homeopathic medicines are likely to cost more.

In any case, homeopathy is an important medical science in France. More than 20000 doctors and many homeopathic pharmacies working here."

After reading this post, I am in a lot of pain. It is because of the pain that even after many years of India's independence, why we have not been able to make good health models.

The central government has increased the time limit for abortion

In 1971, the Government of India first passed a law on abortion. The bill allows for abortions for up to five months (20 weeks).

Now the government has increased the allowable period for abortion to 24 weeks (six months). Earlier it was 20 weeks (five months). The Union Cabinet meeting in New Delhi approved the bill. The bill will be presented in the Budget Session beginning in February. Union health minister Prakash Javadekar said the decision would help reduce the maternal mortality rate significantly.

If there is a problem with the growth of the baby including health reasons, earlier it was not permitted to abortion if it found after five months.

The Bill provides that women have the right to decide whether or not to continue their pregnancy according to their own decision, and in such a case, it allows women to end their pregnancy freely and safely.

Neither raped children, minors, nor heterosexual girls are likely to know about pregnancy immediately. So this will help them free from unnecessary pregnancy.

This is a good  progressive reform. It is up to women to decide their own pregnancy. That is why the period for abortion is increased. There are many cases and cases of the girl being unaware of her pregnancy during the first six months. In those cases all victims had to go the court for seeking permission to terminate the pregnancy. The decision was taken after a detailed consultation with several healthcare professionals and specialist doctors, the Union Minister said.
