I thought maybe for some reason my hair is falling so much, I did not have to suspect that this is a post covid side effect.

I thought the fall would stop on its own after some time but my hair started falling more and my scalp started showing a lot more.

As I have written in my introduction that I am a health worker and many co-workers with me also had covid.

Slowly all of them started having hair fall problem then I thought is this post covid side effect or not.

I saw following NDTV news. I realised this is post covid side effect

Causes of Hair fall

Hair fall is a normal thing after any illness and fever. Fever is the common symptoms of Covid.

As we all know Covid is a viral disease after any type of fever our hair goes into telogen phase this is a shedding phase.

This medical term known as Telogen effluvium. People with TE report hair loss that comes on suddenly.

Hair typically falls out in large clumps, often while brushing or showering.

Most of the people will also know that even when we have typhoid, we still have a lot of hair fall.

Most people see noticeable hair shedding two to three months after having a fever or illness.

Handfuls of hair can come out when you shower or brush your hair.

This hair shedding can last for six to nine months before it stops. 

Stress can causes a temporary hair shedding. Emotional stress can also force more hairs than normal into the shedding phase.

Diet plays a very important role in the growth of our hair and keeping it strong.

If you don’t have enough nutrition and diet your hair fall will started

Treatment  of Hair fall.

Vitamin D3 Deficiency. Lower Vitamin D 3 level is  most common cause of hair lose.

In Covid-19 disease every known about vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 also increase our immune system.

So check your vitamin D3 level if it is lower side you must have to take vitamins d3 doses. 

Recommended dose of vitamin D3 is 60k IU per week for 8 week. this is therapeutic dose.

Ferritin is a type of protein in your blood. It stores iron that your body can use when it needs it.

If you have low ferritin, this means that you also have an iron deficiency.

When you have lower ferritin level this also cause hair fall. You should take iron supplements.

Green vegetables, spanich and beetroot are full of iron so consume more.

If your hair lose is excessive so you can add some vitamin and minerals tables.

If you are not taking enough vitamins and minerals in your diet, then this can also be one of the main reasons for hair loss.

After being saved from covid, take care of your diet. Must be taken if supplement is required

If your hair lose has started, then you should consult your doctor at once.

If your hair is in the telogen phase, then your hair will not stop falling at any cost. It will stop naturally in three to four months. 

You can regrow your hair with medicine.

Minoxidil and Finasteride are common medicine for regrow your hair. It’s very helpful who has male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. This medicine are very effective even if you have patches on your scalp.

I have been also using this serum since last two months and I have a big difference in my scalp.

Thank you

Hope this blog help you.

Low back pain. Symptoms, Causes, Investigation,Treatment

In today’s time everyone is troubled by low  back pain. The job of some people is such that they have to sit in the chair all day. Because of this they have to face sever low back pain. 

The problem of low back pain more seen in women because women’s bones weaker then men.

Introduction of Low back pain.

Low back pain is characterized by pain which is present in the lower part of the back region.

As much as 80% of industrial population and 60% of the general population experience acute low back pain at some point of time in their life.


Back pain varies. It may be sharp or stabbing. It can be dull, achy, or feel like a “charley horse” type cramp.

The type of pain you have will depend on the underlying cause of your back pain.

Most people find that reclining or lying down will improve low back pain, no matter the underlying cause.

People with low back pain may experience some of the following:

Back pain may be worse with bending and lifting.

Sitting may worsen pain.

Standing and walking may worsen pain

Back pain comes and goes, and often follows an up and down course with good days and bad days.

Pain may extend from the back into the buttock or outer hip area, but not down the leg.

Sciatica is common with a herniated disk. This includes buttock and leg pain, and even numbness, tingling or weakness that goes down to the foot. It is possible to have sciatica without back pain.

Back pain may be worse with bending and lifting.

Sitting may worsen pain.

Standing and walking may worsen pain

Back pain comes and goes, and often follows an up and down course with good days and bad days.

Pain may extend from the back into the buttock or outer hip area, but not down the leg.

Sciatica is common with a herniated disk. This includes buttock and leg pain, and even numbness, tingling or weakness that goes down to the foot. It is possible to have sciatica without back pain.

Causes of Low back pain

In the majority of the patient the common causes of low back pain are:


2- Diskogenic.

However low back pain could result from various other causes. It is therefore necessary to identify and rule out the other causes of low back pain before initiating physiotherapy.

Other common causes of Low back pain

1-Congenital:-Congenital bony malformations of vertebra, sacralization of lumbar vertebra, lumbarization of the sacral vertebra, spondylolisthesis.

2- Traumatic:- InJudicious sudden lifting, fall with indirect or direct injury to the back, compression fracture of the vertebra body or transverse process, subluxation or patial dislocation of lumber vertebra facet joint, spondylosis and spondylolisthesis.

3- Degenerative Diseases:- These include annular tears, herniated nucleus pulposus, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, spondylosis and spondylolisthesis.

4- Inflammatory Diseases:- Rheumatoid Arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and various type of sacroilitis.

5- Infection Diseases:- Tuberculosis, pyogenic infections of the spine, pelvic or sacroiliac joint infection.

6- Neoplastic Disease:- Benign and malignant tumors involving nerve roots, meninges and pelvic tumors.

7- Metabolic Diseases:- Osteoporosis and other metabolic diseases.

8- Circulatory disorder:- Vascular insufficient like varicose veins, abdominal aortic aneurysm.

9- Toxicity:- Chronic radium poisoning may cause aseptic necrosis of bone and pathological fracture of vertebral bodies.

10-Psychoneuroticproblem:- Psychoneurotic pain also occur due to anxiety, tension or trouble work.

The disk lesion:- If the lesion is due to the disk pathology it is important to identify the type, extent and site of the lesion.

The commonly affected disk in the lumbar region are the fourth and fifth Disks.

The physical examination:- Detailed physical examination is necessary to diagnose the exact site, extent and cause of lesion. It may consist of the following:

Detailed history of episode Examination of the posture E valuation of pain characteristics Palpation Range of spinal movement Neurological examination Diagnostic physical test Evaluation of the functional status

1- L4 and L5 :- Prolapse of the disk between L4 and L5 will compress the L5 nerve root.

There will be diminished sensation in the dorsum of the foot and anterolateral aspect of the leg, weakness of the extensor hallucis longus. Ankle jerk will be normal.

2- L5 and S1:- Prolapse of the L5 and S1 disk compress the S1 nerve root.

There will be diminished sensation over the lateral aspect of the leg and foot, weakness of plantar flexion of big toe and foot. Ankle jerk will be absent.


X-Ray of the spine should be done in all cases of Low back pain. There are a number of advance techniques such as computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bone scan etc.


Most back pains fall in the nonspecific category of classification and have almost a set program of treatment.

The following things single or in combination are generally employed in the conservative management of low back pain.

Rest and analgesic

Spinal Extension exercise

Physical agent- Moist heat, short wave diathermy (SWD), Ultrasonic therapy, infrared therapy etc.

Spinal traction

Spinal support or brace

Postural correction

Home instructions

Patient is advised to avoid flexion strains

Advise to avoid weight lifting

Advise to sleep on a firm mattress and not on saggy mattress

Avoid two wheeler

While traveling in bus sit in the middle or front seat

Avoid prolong standing


It may not be possible to prevent low back pain. We cannot avoid the normal wear and tear on our spines that goes along with aging. But there are things we can do to lessen the impact of low back problems. Having a healthy lifestyle is a good start.


Combine aerobic exercise, like walking or swimming, with specific exercises to keep the muscles in your back and abdomen strong and flexible.

Proper Lifting

Be sure to lift heavy items with your legs, not your back. Do not bend over to pick something up. Keep your back straight and bend at your knees.


Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight puts added stress on your lower back.

Avoid Smoking

Both the smoke and the nicotine cause your spine to age faster than normal.

Proper Posture

Good posture is important for avoiding future problems. A therapist can teach you how to safely stand, sit, and lift.

Blood Glucose Management. Hypoglycemia/Hyperglycemia

Blood Glucose Management is most important for our life. If blood glucose level  is higher it can dangerous for us that is called hyperglycemia, if blood glucose level go lower side it also very risky some time person could be faint due to lower glucose lever that called hypoglycemia.

Here are some of the signs & symptoms of Hyperglycemia (when blood glucose levels are higher than the range at which the body functions optimally) and Hypoglycemia (when blood glucose levels drop Hypoglycemia below this range).

Remember that any of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you have the condition. The best way to know is to test your blood glucose and consult your doctor. Some of the Signs & Symptoms of Hyperglycemia.

Increased thirst and urination, weakness, pain in stomach, aching all Weakness, pain in stomach, aching allover Heavy labored breathing heavy labored breathing loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fatigue Large amounts of sugar in blood Ketones in urine.

What can you do?

Call the Doctor immediately
Take fluids without sugar if able to swallow
Test blood glucose frequently
Test urine for ketones

What are the causes?

Not enough insulin
Too much food
Infection, fever, illness
Emotional stress

Some of the Signs & Symptoms of Hypoglycemia

Cold sweats, dizziness, feeling faint Headache
Pounding of heart, trembling, nervousness Blurred vision Hunger
Inability to awaken
Personality changes

What can you do?

Take Glucose tablets or orange juice (Your
doctor may have specific instructions for you)
Educate yourself about the 15-15 rule
Check blood glucose levels
Do not give insulin
Do not give anything by mouth if unconscious
Give glucagon according to package

What are the causes?

Too much insulin
Not enough food
Unusual amount of exercise
Delayed meals
Alcohol effects without food

How can you avoid Hyperglycemia or Hypoglycemia?

Consult your Doctor and work with your dietitian/ diabetes educator. Your dietitian can recommend a diet suited to your lifestyle and preferences. She/he can also show you the amounts of calories, carbohydrates, fats & proteins you are consuming presently, if you give him/her the information of the exact amounts consumed. So keeping a food record
is a useful tool.

Eating Tips on Blood Glucose Management Eating Tips on Blood Glucose Management

(Ask your doctor what the optimal range of blood glucose for you should be and try to keep your blood glucose within this range)

There is no diet known as a ‘diabetes diet’ and no special foods are necessary. The Introduction explains how the body regulates glucose levels in the blood from the foods we eat. Foods available in the supermarket can be used and can be eaten but with the information and awareness, you can combine health-promoting foods in a moderate amounts so that the insulin produced by your body (along with any other medication that is prescribed by your Medical Provider) will help your body use the foods you eat and keep the blood glucose (or ‘blood sugar’ as it is commonly called) within the doctor prescribed range.

Here are some tools that can help you achieve this goal:

1. Keep a record of foods and the approximate amounts till you get a good working knowledge with the help of your Medical Provider and Dietitian.

2. Use heart-healthy fats and oils – monounsaturated oils like olive oil, canola oil are recommended. If you use ghee, keep it to a minimum and for occasional use but also count it in your total daily fat allowance.

3. Include plenty of fresh or cooked vegetables (stir-fried with 1-2 tsps of oil to season for 3-4 cups of vegetables is recommended). Eating patterns of some regions talk about the small quantity of vegetables eaten.

This is where the eating patterns can be improved. While stir frying vegetables, use the spices, garlic, onion, coriander and other spices of your choice to improve taste instead of large amounts fats and oils.

Try to avoid ‘feasting’ and ‘fasting’. If you fast, make sure that you have a good balanced meal before and after a ‘fast’.

4. Make sure you include 6-8 cups of water every day. Try to avoid soda or juices as a beverage substitute for water especially for young children as this can become a habit that is tough to break!

5. Eat 3-4 cups of vegetables (without much oil) and fruits with whole grain cereals, brown basmati, whole wheat flour, oats to increase fiber intake

6. Avoid excess salt while garnishing foods.

7. Foods like ginger, onion, garlic, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, fennel seeds, curry leaves, coriander leaves etc have been recommended in Ayurveda and can continue to be included

8. Include a workout program that includes Yoga (after you check this out with your Medical Provider) everyday or at least 3-4 times a week.

Common cold and flu | How can I prevent cold?

Common cold and flu is a viral infection. It is transmitted by persons to persons.

Common Cold 

A “cold” is a layman’s term for an upper respiratory infection or URI (the medical term is just as imprecise).

All colds are caused by viruses, some 300 of them. The average child gets a cold about three to six times per year while an adult gets 2 to 4 per year.

If you get sick every three to four months, then you are normal.

When people sneeze or cough, they spray cold viruses in the air. These settle on door
knobs, table tops, money … anything.

If you touch these things with your hands and then touch your eyes or your nose, the virus is transferred. You do not get a cold from hand to mouth transfer.

The symptoms of a cold can vary, but a typical cold begins with a mild to severe sore throat that can last for 1 to 5 days.

Viruses invade throat cells and force them to make more viruses. These viruses in turn spread to nearby cells.

In this way, your cold symptoms will evolve and change over several days as the viruses spread from one cell to the next. As they go up into your nose you develop a stuffy, runny nose with post nasal drip.

As they go into your trachea and upper chest you body responds with cough or a
hoarse voice.

Different people with the same virus may have different symptoms.

Fatigue or tiredness and malaise, a vague feeling of bodily discomfort, are very common.

Any viral infection will make you tired, not just the flu or mononucleosis.

You spend spend one to three days getting sick (changing and evolving symptoms as the virus moves around), four to six days being sick and three or more days getting better.

A typical cold lasts for 7 to 14 days. The residual cough and sniffles can last a month.

Your cold symptoms your body’s reaction to the virus, not the virus itself. Some people
have a stronger response and more symptoms.

How can I prevent a cold?

You can’t! There is no known way to prevent a cold. There are no cold vaccines and
vitamin C is overrated.

Contrary to myth, colds do not come from exposure to bad weather but we often see people becoming sick after they get wet and cold.

Why? Well,we are exposed to viruses all the time but most of the time we do not get sick. Our immune system handles the problem.

The Common Cold

Mentally stressed, our immune system is depressed and the virus is able to start an

It may well be that the best way to prevent a viral cold is a good, strong immune system.

If you work with or have small children, especially if they are in daycare, you will get sick often.

How long am I contagious?

You are spreading cold viruses for one to two days before your symptoms begin and for probably three to five days afterward.

What do cough and cold medicines

They don’t cure you! None of the over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription cough and cold medicines will cure your cold.

They do not kill viruses. Use them to relieve symptoms but don’t expect to get well faster.

What do I do for congestion?

The mucous membranes of your nose and sinuses react to the viral infection by swelling up and making mucous.

This swelling narrows the airway making it harder to breath.

If your membranes are congested then you may want a decongestant.

This decongestant shrinks the swollen membranes. This can come at the price of rapid or forceful heart beat with palpitations, an elevated blood pressure, tremors, nausea or loss of appetite, anxiety, poor sleep, vivid dreams and especially in men, difficult urination.

People vary in their sensitivity to decongestants. Regula caffeine users have habituated their bodies to stimulants and have fewer side effects.

If you are one of the sensitive people, then you may need only a child’s dose. If you have.untreated and uncontrolled hypertension, decongestants may be dangerous.

Pseudoephedrine is about the only oral decongestant on the market now.
Phenylpropanolamine was taken off the market several years ago because it caused
strokes in young women.

They are powerful and work fast … but, as with all medications, this can come at a price.

The decongestant effect is so intense that your body tries hard to overcome it. When the decongestant wears off your mucous membranes can swell even more than before.

Your nose can become “hooked” on nose sprays if you use them for more than three days. Use them cautiously, if at all

What should I take for the cough?

There are many reasons that you may cough. When the infection invades the lining of the trachea and upper airways, you may respond by producing mucous.

You would then cough to get this mucous out. However, the inflammation and irritation alone can cause a dry cough without any mucous.

There is nothing to come up so taking a mucous liquefier is useless.

You can’t liquefy something that isn’t there.
If you feel a tickle in your throat, this is due to irritation.

The only way you can “scratch” this tickle is by forcing air past the irritation at high speed … coughing. Unfortunately, just like an itch on the skin, the more you scratch the more it can itch.

This may lead to coughing spasms. Severe coughing can cause vomiting, strained chest or abdominal muscles, urine leakage, hemorrhoids and headaches. You want to suppress this type of cough.

You may also cough without any lung infection because of post nasal drip.

This is a frequent cause of nighttime cough. The drainage holes for the maxillary (cheek) sinuses are towards the back of your head and not at the bottom of the sinuses.

When you lie down they start draining and then you cough.

Most OTC cough medications contain guaifenesin and dextromethorphan (often
abbreviated DM on the bottle), a synthetic, mild narcotic cough suppressant.

For most people this is all you need. The usual preparations such as Robitussin DM work for about four hours. Delsym works for about 8 to 12 hours.

For severe coughs, your doctor may prescribe codeine or hydrocodone (Histinex,
Histussin, Tussionex).

Both work well but can be highly addictive and abused. Do not expect automatic refills of these without being seen by the doctor.

If the cough is dry or unproductive, take a cough suppressant.

When you think about it … it the mucous liquefier worked perfectly and made lots of
mucous and the cough suppressant worked perfectly to stop your cough … you would
drown in your own secretions!

What are the complications of a cold?

The viral infection may weaken your immune system and allow bacteria to complicate
the cold causing ear infections and sinusitis.

According to the Center for Disease Control
in Atlanta (CDC), bronchitis is almost always viral and not bacterial.

Most bacterial complications do not occur until you have been sick with the virus for seven to ten days.

Look for what is called a “double sickening”, that is, the usual cold symptoms lasting for
a week with gradual improvement followed by a sudden worsening … a second illness.

You will not prevent complications by starting an antibiotic early … you may just create bacteria resistant to that antibiotic.

Another common complication of a cold is asthma. The infection triggers spasm in your airways leading to wheezing, cough and shortness of breath.

When should you see the Doctor?

The doctor cannot cure your virus. If you have the typical sore throat for a few days,
followed by head congestion and then a cough, you have a typical viral cold.

Take OTC medications for your symptoms and keep on going.

See the doctor if you have a high fever, shaking chills, severe sore throat without any nose or chest symptoms, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pain, earache, severe facial pain or pressure, or green or brown mucous.

Summary on treating a cold

If you get what is going around, it is a virus. Viruses are easily spread from person to
person. Bacteria are not.

If you have a cold, you DO have an infection … viral not bacterial.

Modern medicine has little to offer for the common cold and you usually do not need
to see a doctor.

Try to get out of the antibiotic habit for every little sniffle.

Colds are always caused by viruses and will not be cured by an antibiotic.

Yellow discharge is common with viruses and does not necessarily indicate a bacteria

A cold may last for up to two or three weeks … treated or untreated.

The Common Cold

For the first few days, you should get as much rest as your body wants. After this
initial fatigue, you will get well faster if you stay moderately active.

Take a decongestant during the day to relieve nasal stuffiness but it may keep you
awake at night.

Take a cough suppressant (dextromethorphan) for a frequent, dry, unproductive cough.

If you are not coughing that much, don’t take anything.

Avoid OTC nasal decongestant sprays (Afrin, Neo-synephrine) if you can.

Use OTC or homemade (one teaspoon of salt per quart of water) saltwater nasal
sprays to thin the mucous and sooth your nose.

Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen (Tylenol) for aches, pain and sore throat.

If you have a sore throat, avoid hot drinks. Sip on cold liquids instead.
You may have a little nose drainage or a little cough for weeks.

See the doctor if you have fever, green discharge or a double sickening.

Beware that you can become addicted to prescription cough medicines and don’t
expect the doctor to keep refilling them.

Don’t smoke during your illness. It only makes things worse.

Avoid drinking alcohol. The hot toddy may numb to symptoms but it depresses your
immune system and weakens your ability to get over the infection.

Use tissues instead of handkerchiefs. They are more sanitary and less likely to spread

Drink plenty of liquids.

Wash your hands often to prevent spread of the virus.

If you have a sick or elderly person in the home, consider wearing a dust mask to
prevent spread of the viruses.

All about Low blood pressure| Hypotension

Low Bood Pressure

Low blood pressure (Hypotension) might seem desirable, and for some people, it causes no problems.

However, for many people, abnormally low blood pressure (hypotension) can cause dizziness and fainting.

In severe cases, low blood pressure can be life-threatening. A blood pressure reading lower than 90 milli meters of mercury (mm Hg) for the top number (systolic) or 60 mm Hg for the bottom number (diastolic) is generally considered low blood pressure.

The causes of low blood pressure can range from dehydration to serious medical or surgical disorders.

It’s important to find out what’s causing your low blood pressure so that it can be treated.

Causes. Conditions that can cause low blood pressure.

Medical conditions that can cause low blood pressure include:

Pregnancy. Because the circulatory system expands rapidly during pregnancy, blood pressure is likely to drop. Pressure usually returns to your pre-pregnancy level after you’ve given birth.

Heart problems. Some heart conditions that can lead to low blood pressure include extremely low heart rate (bradycardia), heart valve problems, heart attack and heart failure.

Endocrine problems. Thyroid conditions such as parathyroid disease, adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease), low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and, in some cases, diabetes can trigger low blood pressure.

Dehydration.When your body loses more water than it takes in, it can cause weakness, dizziness and fatigue. Fever, vomiting, severe diarrhea, overuse of diuretics and strenuous exercise can lead to dehydration.

Blood loss. Losing a lot of blood, such as from a major injury or internal bleeding, reduces the amount of blood in your body, leading to a severe drop in blood pressure.

Severe infection (septicemia).

When an infection in the body enters the bloodstream, it can lead to a life-threatening drop in blood pressure called septic shock.

Severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Common triggers of this severe and potentially life-threatening reaction include foods, certain medications, insect venoms and latex.

Anaphylaxis can cause breathing problems, itching, a swollen throat and a dangerous drop in blood pressure.

Lack of nutrients in your diet. A lack of the vitamins B-12 and folate can keep your body from producing enough red blood cells (anemia), causing low blood pressure.

Medications that can cause low blood pressure.

Some medications can cause low blood pressure, including:

Water pills (diuretics), such as furosemide (Lasix) and hydrochlorothiazide (Maxzide, Microzide, others). Alpha blockers, such as prazosin (Minipress).

Beta blockers, such as atenolol (Tenormin) and propranolol (Inderal, Inoperand XL, others).

Drugs for Parkinson’s disease, such as pramipexole (Mirapex) or those containing levodopa.

Certain types of antidepressants (tricyclic antidepressants), including doxepin (Silenor) and imipramine (Tofranil).

Drugs for erectile dysfunction, including sildenafil (Revatio, Viagra) or tadalafil (Adcirca, Cialis), particularly when taken with the heart medication nitroglycerin.

Types of low blood pressure

Doctors often break down low blood pressure (hypotension) into categories,

depending on the causes and other factors. Some types of low blood pressure include:

Low blood pressure on standing up (orthostatic, or postural, hypotension).

This is a sudden drop in blood pressure when you stand up from a sitting position or after lying down.

Gravity causes blood to pool in your legs when you stand. Ordinarily, your body compensates by increasing your heart rate and constricting blood vessels, thereby ensuring that enough blood returns to your brain.

But in people with orthostatic hypotension, this compensating mechanism fails and blood pressure falls, leading to dizziness, lightheadedness, blurred vision and even fainting.

Orthostatic hypotension can occur for various reasons, including dehydration,

prolonged bed rest, pregnancy, diabetes, heart problems, burns, excessive heat, large varicose veins and certain neurological disorders.

A number of medications also can cause orthostatic hypotension, particularly drugs used to treat high blood pressure —diuretics, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors — as well as antidepressants and drugs used to treat Parkinson’s disease and erectile dysfunction.

Orthostatic hypotension is especially common in older adults, but it also affects young, otherwise healthy people who stand up suddenly after sitting with their legs crossed for long periods or after squatting for a time.

It’s also possible to have delayed orthostatic hypotension, with signs and symptoms developing 5 to 10 minutes after a change in posture.

This might be a milder form of the condition, or it could be an early stage of it.

Low blood pressure after eating

(postprandial hypotension). This sudden
drop in blood pressure after eating affects mostly older adults.
Blood flows to your digestive tract after you eat. Ordinarily, your body increases your heart rate and constricts certain blood vessels to help maintain normal blood pressure.
But in some people these mechanisms fail, leading to dizziness, faintness and falls.
Postprandial hypotension is more likely to affect people with high blood pressure or autonomic nervous system disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.
Lowering the dose of blood pressure drugs and eating small, low-carbohydrate meals might help reduce symptoms.
Low blood pressure from faulty brain signals (neurally mediated hypotension).
This disorder, which causes a blood pressure drop after standing for long periods, mostly affects young adults and children.
It seems to occur because of a miscommunication between the heart and the brain.
Low blood pressure due to nervous system damage (multiple system atrophy with orthostatic hypotension).
Also called Shy-Drager syndrome, this rare disorder causes progressive damage to the autonomic nervous system, which controls involuntary functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and digestion.
It’s associated with having very high blood
pressure while lying down. Risk factors.
Low blood pressure (hypotension) can occur in anyone, though certain types of low blood pressure are more common depending on your age or other factors:
Age. Drops in blood pressure on standing or after eating occur primarily in adults older than 65. Neurally mediated hypotension primarily affects children and younger adults.
Medications. People who take certain medications, for example, high blood
pressure medications such as alpha blockers, have a greater risk of low blood
Certain diseases. Parkinson’s disease, diabetes and some heart conditions put
you at a greater risk of developing low blood pressure.


Even moderate forms of low blood pressure can cause dizziness, weakness, fainting and a risk of injury from falls.
And severely low blood pressure can deprive your body of enough oxygen to carry out its normal functions, leading to damage to your heart and brain.

This includes working having fun, spending time with family and friends, participating in the community, being physically active—including sexually—praying, and relaxing and sleeping.

Because we each have individual needs, preferences, and capabilities, what we consider “balance” will also look different.

And it’s important for us to re-balance from time to time, to adjust to what is going on in our lives.

When we’re trying to get through a tough time—whether it is stress, an illness, trauma, or an emotional challenge—balance is especially important.

In these times, our habits and routines can help us get that feeling of control back.

This means focusing on ourselves as well as the roles we play in the lives of others—like being students, friends, parents, spouses, coworkers, congregants, hobbyists, community members, and citizens.

Our roles and relationships help define who we are, what gives us a sense of purpose, and how our lives are interdependent on other people, animals, and the environment.

Being engaged in life and relationships provides a measure of balance and overall wellness.

For example, swimming has physical benefits (building strength, improving circulation), as well as social (meeting other people) and emotional benefits (relieving stress).

But we don’t have to swim laps every week to be well getting into the pool even occasionally is a great step.

Having a safe and clean living environment helps us feel organized and in control.

It can be a way to get physical activity in as well, and offers the chance for partners and families to work together.


Most of us know something that we do that makes us feel good about ourselves, or in

It could be as different as taking our dog for a walk, or balancing our checkbook.

And any step in that direction, such as finding a new walking route or gathering receipts from a purse, is positive.

However, sometimes we may want advice from family and friends. That’s OK, too, and is where support from others comes in.

Talking with someone who has been through similar things—whether it is a mental health issue, addiction, trauma, pain issues, smoking, diabetes, bullying, or abuse—makes us feel less alone.

When we realize others have had similar feelings and experiences and have been able to move forward and grow, it can give us the confidence to move forward, too.

• Supportive input from people with a range of backgrounds who have experiences
similar to ours.

• A chance to support others by our presence, compassion, our ideas, and empathy.

• People who can suggest services or resources we might not have considered.

We can find supportive people in many places—a community or church/synagogue/
mosque/temple group, at work, or through volunteering efforts, to name a few.


Having self-defined routines and habits can offer personal balance and satisfaction.

Routine and habit is generally determined by our basic needs (nutrition/food, shelter,
social affiliation, safety, etc.), and the various roles we occupy in society.

Our habits affect what we eat, what we wear, how we relate to others, how we go to work, how we spend or save money, and more.

Habits become ingrained in us—and are often tough to change.

For example, we might put ourselves down or feel we need a particular thing or person to get us through a tough spot.

Life demands, stress, crisis, or trauma can impact or alter our routines and habits.

Ten Processes of Change:

1. Consciousness Raising

Increasing awareness about the healthy behavior.

2. Dramatic Relief

Emotional arousal about the health behavior, whether positive or negative arousal.

3. Self-Reevaluation

Self-reappraisal to realize the healthy behavior is part of who they want to be.

4. Environmental Reevaluation

Social reappraisal to realize how their unhealthy behavior affects others.

5. Social Liberation

Environmental opportunities that exist to show society is supportive of the healthy behavior.

6. Self-Liberation

Commitment to change behavior based on the belief that achievement of the healthy behavior is possible.

7. Helping Relationships

Finding supportive relationships that encourage the desired change.

8. Counter-Conditioning

Substituting healthy behaviors and thoughts for unhealthy behaviors and thoughts.

9. Reinforcement Management

Rewarding the positive behavior and
reducing the rewards that come from negative behavior.

10. Stimulus Control

Re-engineering the environment to have reminders and cues that support and encourage the healthy behavior and remove those that encourage the unhealthy behaviors.

How to manage high blood pressure?

How to control high blood pressure?

High blood pressure is a dangerous condition that can damage your heart. It affects one in three people in the US and 1 billion people worldwide.

There are a number of things you can do to lower your blood pressure naturally, even without medication.

1. Walk and exercise regularly

Exercise is one of the best things you can do to lower high blood pressure.

Regular exercise helps make your heart stronger and more efficient at pumping blood, which lowers the pressure in your arteries.

In fact, 150 minutes of moderate exercise, such as walking, or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise, such as running, per week can help lower blood pressure and improve your heart health.

What’s more, doing even more exercise reduces your blood pressure even further, according to the National Walkers’ Health Study.

Walking just 30 minutes a day can help lower your blood pressure. More exercise helps reduce it even further.

2. Reduce your sodium intake

Salt intake is high around the world. In large part, this is due to processed and prepared foods.

For this reason, many public health efforts are aimed at lowering salt in the food industry.

In many studies, salt has been linked to high blood pressure and heart events, like stroke.

However, more recent research indicates that the relationship between sodium and high blood pressure is less clear.

One reason for this may be genetic differences in how people process sodium. About half of people with high blood pressure and a quarter of people with normal levels seem to have a sensitivity to salt.

If you already have high blood pressure, it’s worth cutting back your sodium intake to see if it makes a difference. Swap out processed foods with fresh ones and try seasoning with herbs and spices, rather than salt.

Most guidelines for lowering blood pressure recommend lowering sodium intake. However, that recommendation might make the most sense for people who are salt-sensitive.

3. Drink less alcohol

Drinking alcohol can raise blood pressure. In fact, alcohol is linked to 16% of high blood pressure cases around the world.

While some research has suggested that low-to-moderate amounts of alcohol may protect the heart, those benefits may be offset by negative effect.
Drinking alcohol in any quantity may raise your blood pressure. Limit your drinking to no more than one drink a day for women, two for men.

4. Eat more potassium-rich foods

Potassium is an important mineral.

It helps your body get rid of sodium and ease pressure on your blood vessels.

Modern diets have increased most people’s sodium intake while decreasing potassium intake .

To get a better balance of potassium to sodium in your diet, focus on eating fewer processed foods and more fresh, whole foods.

Foods that are particularly high in potassium include:

– Vegetables, especially leafy greens, tomatoes, potatoes and sweet potatoes
– Fruit, including melons, bananas, avocados, oranges and apricots
– Dairy, such as milk and yogurt
– Tuna and salmon
– Nuts and seeds
– Beans

Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, which are rich in potassium, can help lower blood pressure.

5. Cut back on caffeine

If you’ve ever downed a cup of coffee before you’ve had your blood pressure taken, you’ll know that caffeine causes an instant boost.

However, there’s not a lot of evidence to suggest that drinking caffeine regularly can cause a lasting increase .

In fact, people who drink caffeinated coffee and tea tend to have a lower risk of heart disease, including high blood pressure, than those who don’t.

Caffeine may have a stronger effect on people who don’t consume it regularly.

If you suspect you’re caffeine-sensitive, cut back to see if it lowers your blood pressure.

Caffeine can cause a short-term spike in blood pressure, although for many people it does not cause a lasting increase.

6. Learn to manage stress

Stress is a key driver of high blood pressure.

When you’re chronically stressed, your body is in a constant fight-or-flight mode. On a physical level, that means a faster heart rate and constricted blood vessels.

When you experience stress, you might also be more likely to engage in other behaviours, such as drinking alcohol or eating unhealthy food, that can negatively affect blood pressure.

Several studies have explored how reducing stress can help lower blood pressure. Here are two evidence-based tips to try:

  • Listen to soothing music: Calming music can help relax your nervous system. Research has shown it’s an effective complement to other blood pressure therapies.

  • Work less: Working a lot, and stressful work situations in general, are linked to high blood pressure.
    Chronic stress can contribute to high blood pressure. Finding ways to manage stress can help.

7. Eat dark chocolate or cocoa

Here’s a piece of advice you can really get behind.

While eating massive amounts of chocolate probably won’t help your heart, small amounts may.

That’s because dark chocolate and cocoa powder are rich in flavonoids, plant compounds that cause blood vessels to dilate.

A review of studies found that flavonoid-rich cocoa improved several markers of heart health over the short term, including lowering blood pressure.

For the strongest effects, use non-alkalized cocoa powder, which is especially high in flavonoids and has no added sugars.

Dark chocolate and cocoa powder contain plant compounds that help relax blood vessels, lowering blood pressure.

8. Lose weight

If you’re overweight, losing weight can make a big difference for your heart health.

According to a 2016 study, losing 5% of your body mass could significantly lower high blood pressure.

In previous studies, losing 17 pounds (7.7 kg) was linked to lowering systolic blood pressure by 8.5 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by 6.5 mm Hg.

To put that in perspective, a healthy reading should be less than 120/80 mm Hg.

The effect is even greater when weight loss is paired with exercise.

Losing weight can help your blood vessels do a better job of expanding and contracting, making it easier for the left ventricle of the heart to pump blood.

Losing weight can significantly lower high blood pressure. This effect is even greater when you exercise.

9. Quit smoking

Among the many reasons to quit smoking is that the habit is a strong risk factor for heart disease.

Every puff of cigarette smoke causes a slight, temporary increase in blood pressure. The chemicals in tobacco are also known to damage blood vessels.

Surprisingly, studies haven’t found a conclusive link between smoking and high blood pressure. Perhaps this is because smokers develop a tolerance over time.

Still, since both smoking and high blood pressure raise the risk of heart disease, quitting smoking can help reverse that risk.

There’s conflicting research about smoking and high blood pressure, but what is clear is that both increase the risk of heart disease.

10. Cut added sugar and refined carbs.

There’s a growing body of research showing a link between added sugar and high blood pressure.

In the Framingham Women’s Health Study, women who drank even one soda per day had higher levels than those who drank less than one soda per day.

Another study found that having one less sugar-sweetened beverage per day was linked to lower blood pressure.

And it’s not just sugar – all refined carbs, such as the kind found in white flour, convert rapidly to sugar in your bloodstream and may cause problems.

Some studies have shown that low-carb  diets may also help reduce blood pressure.

One study on people undergoing statin therapy found that those who went on a six-week, carb-restricted diet saw a greater improvement in blood pressure and other heart disease markers than people not on a diet.

Refined carbs, especially sugar, may raise blood pressure. Some studies have shown that low-carb diets may help reduce your levels.

11. Eat berries

Berries are full of more than just juicy flavor.

They’re also packed with polyphenols, natural plant compounds that are good for your heart.

One small study had middle-aged people eat berries for eight weeks.

Participants experienced improvements in different markers of heart health, including blood pressure.

Another study assigned people with high blood pressure to a low-polyphenol diet or a high-polyphenol diet containing berries, chocolate, fruits and vegetables.

Those consuming berries and polyphenol-rich foods experienced improved markers of heart disease risk.

Berries are rich in polyphenols, which can help lower blood pressure and the overall risk of heart disease.

12. Try meditation or deep breathing

While these two behaviours could also fall under “stress reduction techniques,” meditation and deep breathing deserve specific mention.

Both meditation and deep breathing are thought to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. This system is engaged when the body relaxes, slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure.

There’s quite a bit of research in this area, with studies showing that different styles of meditation appear to have benefits for lowering blood pressure.

Deep breathing techniques can also be quite effective.

In one study, participants were asked to either take six deep breaths over the course of 30 seconds or to simply sit still for 30 seconds. Those who took breaths lowered their blood pressure more than those who just sat.

Try guided meditation or deep breathing. Here’s a video to get you started.

Both meditation and deep breathing can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps slow your heart rate and lower blood pressure.

13. Eat calcium-rich foods

People with low calcium intake often have high blood pressure.

While calcium supplements haven’t been conclusively shown to lower blood pressure, calcium-rich diets do seem linked to healthy levels .

For most adults, the calcium recommendation is 1,000 mg per day. For women over 50 and men over 70, it’s 1,200 mg per day.

In addition to dairy, you can get calcium from collard greens and other leafy greens, beans, sardines and tofu. Here is a complete list.

Calcium-rich diets are linked to healthy blood pressure levels. Get calcium through dark leafy greens and tofu, as well as dairy.

14. Take natural supplements

Some natural supplements may also help lower blood pressure. Here are some of the main supplements that have evidence behind them:

– Aged garlic extract: Aged garlic extract has been used successfully as a stand-alone treatment and along with conventional therapies for lowering blood pressure.

  • Berberine: Traditionally used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, berberine may increase nitric oxide production, which helps decrease blood pressure.

  • Fish oil: Long credited with improving heart health, fish oil may benefit people with high blood pressure the most.

  • Hibiscus: Hibiscus flowers make a tasty tea. They’re rich in anthocyanins and polyphenols that are good for your heart and may lower blood pressure.

15. Eat foods rich in magnesium

Magnesium is an important mineral that helps blood vessels relax.

While magnesium deficiency is pretty rare, many people don’t get enough.

Some studies have suggested that getting too little magnesium is linked with high blood pressure, but evidence from clinical studies has been less clear.

Still, eating a magnesium-rich diet is a recommended way to ward off high blood pressure.

You can incorporate magnesium into your diet with vegetables, dairy products, legumes, chicken, meat and whole grains.

Magnesium is an important mineral that helps regulate blood pressure. Find it in whole foods, such as legumes and whole grains.

High blood pressure affects a large proportion of the world’s population.

While drugs are one way to treat the condition, there are many other natural techniques that can help.

Everything you need to know about blood pressure | (Hypertension)

What is high blood pressure? Or

What is hypertension?

High blood pressure (hypertension) is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.

Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries.

The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.

The Blood Pressure Reading

Your blood pressure reading is written as 120/80.

It is spoken like this: “120 over 80.”

The systolic blood pressure reading is the higher number.

The diastolic blood pressure reading is the lower number.

The units are milli meters of mercury (mmHg).

It has two number of blood pressure.

What does systolic blood pressure means?

When your heart beats, it squeezes and pushes blood through your arteries to the rest of your body. This force creates pressure on those blood vessels, and that’s your systolic blood pressure

What does diastolic blood pressure means?

The diastolic reading, or the bottom number, is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. This is the time when the heart fills with blood and gets oxygen.

Five categories define blood pressure readings for adults:

Healthy:A healthy blood pressure reading is less than 120/80 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).

Elevated:The systolic number is between 120 and 129 mm Hg, and the diastolic number is less than 80 mm Hg. Doctors usually don’t treat elevated blood pressure with medication. Instead, your doctor may encourage lifestyle changes to help lower your numbers.

Stage 1 hypertension: The systolic number is between 130 and 139 mm Hg, or the diastolic number is between 80 and 89 mm Hg.

Stage 2 hypertension: The systolic number is 140 mm Hg or higher, or the diastolic number is 90 mm Hg or higher.

Hypertensive crisis: The systolic number is over 180 mm Hg, or the diastolic number is over 120 mm Hg. Blood pressure in this range requires urgent medical attention. If any symptoms such as chest pain, headache, shortness of breath, or visual changes occur when blood pressure is this high, medical care in the emergency room is needed.

Symptoms of high blood pressure (hypertension)

One of the most dangerous things about hypertension — or high blood pressure — is that you may not know you have it. In fact, nearly one-third of people who have high blood pressure don’t know it. That’s because high blood pressure doesn’t have any symptoms unless it’s very severe. The best way to know if your blood pressure is high is through regular checkups. You can also monitor blood pressure at home. This is especially important if you have a close relative who has high blood pressure.

If your blood pressure is extremely high, there may be certain symptoms to look out for, including:

Severe headaches


Fatigue or confusion

Vision problems

Chest pain

Difficulty breathing

Irregular heartbeat

You might be more at risk if you are.


eat too much salt and do not eat enough fruit and vegetables

do not do enough exercise

drink too much alcohol or coffee (or other caffeine-based drinks)


do not get much sleep or have disturbed sleep

over 65

have a relative with high blood pressure

Making healthy lifestyle changes can sometimes help reduce your chances of getting high blood pressure and help lower your blood pressure if it’s already high

Causes of high blood pressure

In about 1 in 20 cases, high blood pressure happens as the result of an underlying health condition or taking a certain medicine.Health conditions that can cause high blood pressure include:Kidney disease


Long-term kidney infections

Obstructive sleep apnoea – where the walls of the throat relax and narrow during sleep, interrupting normal breathing

Glomerulonephritis – damage to the tiny filters inside the kidneys

Narrowing of the arteries supplying the kidneys

Hormone problems – such as an underactive thyroid, an overactive thyroid, Cushing’s syndrome,  increased levels of the hormone aldosterone (hyperaldosteronism), and phaeochromocytoma

Management of Hypertension.

Healthy lifestyle changes can help you control the factors that cause hypertension.

Developing a healthy diet

A heart-healthy diet is vital for helping to reduce high blood pressure. It’s also important for managing hypertension that is under control and reducing the risk of complications. These complications include heart disease, stroke, and heart attack.

A heart-healthy diet emphasizes foods that include.



whole grains

lean proteins like fish

Increasing physical activity

Reaching a healthy weight should include being more physically active. In addition to helping you shed pounds, exercise can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure naturally, and strengthen your cardiovascular system.

Aim to get 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week.

That’s about 30 minutes five times per week.

Reaching a healthy weight

If you are overweight or obese, losing weight through a heart-healthy diet and increased physical activity can help lower your blood pressure.

Managing stress

Exercise is a great way to manage stress. Other activities can also be helpful. These include:


deep breathing


muscle relaxation


These are all proven stress-reducing techniques. Getting adequate sleep can also help reduce stress levels.

Adopting a cleaner lifestyle

If you’re a smoker, try to quit. The chemicals in tobacco smoke damage the body’s tissues and harden blood vessel walls.

If you regularly consume too much alcohol or have an alcohol dependency, seek help to reduce the amount you drink or stop altogether. Alcohol can raise blood pressure.

Some of the medications used to treat hypertension.

Beta-blockers: Beta-blockers make your heart beat slower and with less force. This reduces the amount of blood pumped through your arteries with each beat, which lowers blood pressure. It also blocks certain hormones in your body that can raise your blood pressure.

Diuretics: High sodium levels and excess fluid in your body can increase blood pressure. Diuretics, also called water pills, help your kidneys remove excess sodium from your body. As the sodium leaves, extra fluid in your bloodstream moves into your urine, which helps lower your blood pressure.

ACE inhibitors: Angiotensin is a chemical that causes blood vessels and artery walls to tighten and narrow. ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitors prevent the body from producing as much of this chemical. This helps blood vessels relax and reduces blood pressure.

Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs): While ACE inhibitors aim to stop the creation of angiotensin, ARBs block angiotensin from binding with receptors. Without the chemical, blood vessels won’t tighten. That helps relax vessels and lower blood pressure.

Calcium channel blockers: These medications block some of the calcium from entering the cardiac muscles of your heart. This leads to less forceful heartbeats and a lower blood pressure. These medicines also work in the blood vessels, causing them to relax and further lowering blood pressure.

Alpha-2 agonists: This type of medication changes the nerve impulses that cause blood vessels to tighten. This helps blood vessels to relax, which reduces blood pressure.

High blood pressure complications during pregnancy.

Complications from high blood pressure for the mother and infant can include the following:

For the mother: preeclampsiaexternal icon, eclampsiaexternal icon, stroke, the need for labor induction (giving medicine to start labor to give birth), and placental abruption (the placenta separating from the wall of the uterus).

For the baby: preterm delivery (birth that happens before 37 weeks of pregnancy) and low birth weight (when a baby is born weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces). The mother’s high blood pressure makes it more difficult for the baby to get enough oxygen and nutrients to grow, so the mother may have to deliver the baby early.

What is diabetes? Facts about Diabetes that You should Know.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is one of the most common health disorders found all over the world. Approximately one in every 25 people are affected by Diabetes and a large population is predisposed to suffer from it.

With all the advancements in modern medicine, we have failed to find a cure for it. We do not even know the exact causes of Diabetes. Today it has affected the entire world irrespective of the lifestyle, age, and geographical location.

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder. It is associated with a hormone called ‘insulin’ which is secreted by a gland known as ‘pancreas’ situated near the lower border of the stomach.

Diabetes arises either from ‘deficiency of insulin’ or from ‘inability of cells to utilize the available insulin’. It is basically the ‘lack of action’ of insulin that brings about Diabetes.

This disorder affects the whole metabolism of the body. Modern sciences have failed to explain with certainty why the pancreas stops the production of insulin or why body cells develop resistance to insulin.

Diabetes – Causes

The causes of diabetes are still not known but there are certain predisposing factors that considerably increase the chances of developing diabetes.

Some predisposing factors (especially those of Type 2) are

A sedentary lifestyle with very less physical activity

Family history of diabetes

Old age

BMI above 30

Eating habits especially when the food contains excessive carbohydrates

What actually happens!!!

When we eat food, it is digested in the digestive tract beginning from the mouth.

Complex food is broken down into simpler foods such as glucose, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, etc. which can be absorbed in the blood.

In a normal human being, the glucose produced in this way is acted upon by a hormone called insulin which helps in taking this glucose to all body cells for their energy needs and converts the ‘leftover’ glucose into glycogen.

Thus, the chief role of insulin is to regulate the glucose level in the blood.

Sometimes, for unknown reasons, either the Pancreas gland stops producing insulin or the body cells develop the inability to utilize the available insulin, thereby causing glucose level in the blood to rise which eventually results in diabetes.

More than 90% of all diabetics suffer from the type of diabetes that is caused by the inability of body cells to utilise the available insulin to regulate the glucose level.

When body cells do not receive glucose for their energy needs, they begin to starve.

To supplement the energy needs, the body starts disintegrating the stored fats and proteins leading to loss of weight, fatigue, weakness and several other complications.

Symptoms and their reasons explained

Common symptoms of diabetes include

Frequent and excessive urination

As you already know, the glucose level in the blood is very high in diabetes.

This glucose circulates in the blood and reaches the kidneys which filter the blood to form urine.

Kidneys ordinarily never let glucose pass into the urine but when the glucose level is excessive, this glucose enters the urine and during this, kidneys filter a lot of water also which results in excessive and frequent urination in diabetes.

Excessive thirst and dry mouth

Excessive urination in diabetes leads to a shortage of water in the body. This, in turn, leads to thirst and dry mouth.


Since the body cells do not get glucose, they begin to starve. Although the glucose is all around yet cells cannot utilize it. This is a case of ‘scarcity amidst plenty’. This starvation of body cells leads to more and more hunger.

Weight loss

When body cells cannot utilize glucose, the stored fat in the body is slowly disintegrated to compensate it. This leads to loss of weight.


Along with stored fat, the protein in the muscles is also disintegrated to nourish the starving cells. This results in fatigue and weakness of the body.

Blurred vision

Our eyes have a fluid inside them that helps in focusing.

Due to the high concentration of glucose in the blood, this fluid also changes its concentration thus leading to a blurring of vision and frequent changes in the power of eye lenses.

Slow healing of cuts and wounds

Since the blood contains an abnormal amount of glucose, it provides an ideal medium for the growth of pus-forming micro-organisms.

This, in turn, affects the healing of even small cuts and abrasions and delays the recovery.

Itchy skin and fungal infection

The blood of a diabetic is quite rich in glucose which provides favorable conditions for faster growth of micro-organisms that cause diseases.

This is more visible on the skin which becomes vulnerable to infections. This excessive glucose also causes itching on the skin.


There are various complications that may take place due to prolonged presence of glucose in the bloodstream.
Some commonly occurring complications include

A. Diabetic Coma
B. Coronary Heart Disease
C. Cerebral Hemorrhage
D. Gangrene

These complications are a result of very complex changes that take place in the body due to excess glucose. Almost all parts of the body are affected by Diabetes and in the long run, it ruins all body parts.

Hyperglycemic coma

This is a commonly occurring complication of diabetes. But how does it happen?

In diabetics, glucose does not nourish the body cells either due to deficiency of insulin or due to the inability of body cells to utilize available insulin.

As a result, stored fats in the body start disintegrating and chemical compounds called ‘ketones’ are formed which make the blood ‘acidic’.

Now the body tries to reduce the acidity and forms more and more urine.

But this, in turn, reduces the fluid content of the body and further increases the acidity of the blood which eventually affects the brain and Coma sets in.

What to do?

There are some predisposing factors that may cause diabetes as explained earlier.

A sedentary lifestyle invites the disease therefore one should cultivate a lifestyle full of physical activities and exercises.

People working in offices usually do not get any opportunity to remain physically active.

Such people should try to spend some time out of their chairs and do as much physical activity as possible at their workplace.

Today’s little workout can ward off tomorrow’s great suffering.

Obesity is another big predisposing condition. More than 70% of elder people who develop diabetes are obese.

Physical exercises and a check on food intake are the best things one can do to avoid adding unwanted weight.

Family history plays a role in causing diabetes. When one is aware of the occurrence of diabetes in the family,

one should prepare against the disease by avoiding other predisposing factors like obesity, sedentary lifestyle, faulty eating habits, etc.

Remember, a prepared man has half fought the battle!

Foods may also be related to diabetes but it is not known with certainty which foods may cause diabetes or may hamper the activity of the pancreas. One should be careful in selecting food.

The intake of fast foods and those foods that are quite rich in carbohydrates should be minimized.

Diabetes badly affects all physiological systems of the human body. The majority of the diabetics develop severe complications that shorten the lifespan.

Whether there is any history of diabetes in one’s family or not, it is always advisable to take precautions and lead a physically active life. Remember, prevention is always better than cure.
