It is characterized by attacks of recurrent headache, sickness, and photophobia (sensitivity to light), etc. A headache or pain usually occurs on one side of the head only. The pain caused by migraine attack can remain for many days.

The person undergoing aura attack may feel face visual disturbances like flashes of light disturbing their vision, but while some others might meet some touch emotional disturbances. During an aura attack, the person may in whole suffer from sensory, movement or speech disorders. In most of the cases, people do not undergo any aura phase.

Alzheimer’s Disease Information

27 Feb

alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that causes several body problems including memory problems, thinking problems and behavioural problems. It is one of the most common causes of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is named after a doctor who first described the disease and called it. The Doctor’s name was Alois Alzheimer.

The condition is different from normal forgetfulness in which a person forgets about a particular place or person’s name, but if the individual forgets his name and forgets the places well known to him, then this is different from normal forgetfulness.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease

The typical symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease may vary from mild to worse. It is critical to know that the patients with Alzheimer’s disease may show different Alzheimer’s symptoms.  The major difficulty that arises with this illness is the memory loss.  The memory loss interferes with the daily life.

The early and later symptoms may vary in the severity. The first signs are:

  • Difficulty in remembering ordinary things
  • Losing things like keys and glasses in the house
  • Quickly being lost in well-known places
  • Confusion of time and location of being
  • Pressure to perform straightforward mathematical calculations

The signs of later stages of Alzheimer’s:

  • Inability to remember the way to brush the teeth or comb hairs
  • Inability to remember their house location
  • Difficult to remember the names of simple things
  • Confusion about time and place
  • Changes in mood and behaviour
  • Poor judgmental qualities etc.

Changes in brain during Alzheimer’s disease:

According to various scientists, there are about 100 million nerve cells in our brain, and they work together to make the brain functioning perfect. The brain nerve cells work to send the signals from the brain to different parts of the body. Alzheimer’s disease is known to interfere with the functioning of the brain nerve cells or the nervous system.

During the ageing process and Alzheimer’s disease, two abnormal structures called plaques and tangles are formed that damage the nerve cells.

  • Plaques are formed up of beta-amyloidal protein
  • Tangles are made up of another protein called tau protein

The destruction and death of the nerve cells with the build up of these proteins causes the Alzheimer’s disease and other symptoms dementia.

Who is at the risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease?

There are a few common risk factors that can initiate the beginning of Alzheimer’s illness and they are:

  1. Age problem: it is one of the biggest risk factors. In the people above the age of 65 years are at a danger of getting AD, and the risk keep on increasing every five years. More than 17% of people above the age of 80 years.
  2. Gender: it is not clearly known the reason behind the cause of the disease in women, still at least twice number of women suffers AD in comparison to men who reaches the age of 65. Women live longer than men, and this fact confuses with the maximum cases of women who suffer from AD. Research is being done on whether oestrogen hormone lack post menopause is the primary reason for the cause of AD in ageing women.
  3. Family history or heredity: Yet another risk factor. People who have close ones or relatives with AD are more likely to get the disease.
  4. Genetic makeup: two genes are related to developing Alzheimer’s disease.

The risk genes, APOE-e gene, APOE-e4 or APOE-e 2or APOE-e3, are known to cause a risk to develop the Alzheimer’s disease, in case, two copies of this gene are inherited.

The deterministic genes are very rare and found only in the few extended families of the world.

Some other risk factors are:

There are a few other causes of memory problem that arises with Alzheimer’s disease:

  1. Medicinal side effect
  2. Depression
  3. Consuming too much alcohol
  4. Blood clot or tumor
  5. Unwholesome Diet
  6. Head injury
  7. Liver problem
  8. Kidney problem etc.

Diagnosis:

No such test can examine the presence of Alzheimer’s disease.  The patient’s condition  is usually diagnosed with the help of a few common tests including the analysis of the symptoms, some neurological tests and a few physical tests such as:

  • Blood pressure check
  • Weight check
  • Urine test
  • Blood test
  • Pulse rate check etc.

Treatments for  Alzheimer’s disease:

There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease up to this date. The scientist is still working on finding the ways to prevent the damage of nerve cells in the brain. A few drugs are available to control the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, and they are FDA approved also. The Alzheimer’s medication list is as follows:

These Alzheimer drugs are available online also, in case you find difficulty in finding the drugs in your locality. Although Alzheimer’s is an incurable problem, still there are a lot of things that can be done to improve the condition of the patient.  The Alzheimer reviews show that drugs, support and more physical and mental activeness of the patient can improve the status of the patient to several folds.

 

What is Antifungal drugs – Symptoms, Causes and Treatment

Antifungal drugs

Fungi are found ubiquitously; they live in the air, in the soil, on plants and in water also. These fungi are both infectious as well as non-infectious to living organisms. Antifungal drugs are those drugs that are used to selectively eliminate fungal pathogens. The anti fungal drugs ensure that the fungal pathogen causes a minimal harm to the organism’s body and system.

Fungi:

Fungi belong to the class of parasitic plants that includes yeast, molds, and mildew, etc. when the fungus enter the body through pathways such as skin or air breath inside; it may cause the infection as it starts to multiply within the tissues and the organs of the body. Fungi can cause various infections of the body including the inflammation of the digestive tract, genitals and other body organs and tissues.

You can find mushrooms everywhere, air, soil, plants, and water and in fact on the human body also. Most of the fungi reproduce by spore formation. Hence, the spores of fungi can be found in the air. These spores reach the lungs when the infected air is inhaled, and the spores travel by the breathed in the air. Although all the spores that enter the body either through the skin or the nasal passage are not able to produce any infection because our body’s immune system starts working in the direction of doing the best to eliminate the pathogens. Our innate immunity fights against the fungal infections because of the presence of these elements:

  • pH levels of the skin and our body
  • Cilia present in the respiratory tract of our body
  • Different types of helpful fatty acids of the skin

Risk factors for getting fungal infections:

Fungal infections mostly hit the below-given people such as:

  • Those people who are on the course of antibiotic
  • Pregnant women

  • people who touch the contaminated objects

What are the common fungal infections and their causative agents?

The fungal infections are classified into the following categories and various diseases caused by fungi falls into these categories:

  4. Systemic: the infection of lungs and different organs
  5. Opportunistic: infections in the patients with weakened immune system

The most common fungal infections are:

  1. Tinea corporis caused by Microsporum sp.  and Trichophyton sp.- it is marked by ringworm lesions on arm, trunk or legs
  2. Candidiases caused by Candida albicans is characterized by the lush growth found in various areas of the body.
  3. Tinea pedis”athlete’s foot” is caused by Microsporum sp. and Trichophyton sp. it is indicated by ringworm of foot
  4. Aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus fumigatus and showed as fungus ball in the tissues.

Diagnosis of fungal infections:

The characteristic appearances of the various infected regions are one of the biggest hints of having a fungal infection. For diagnosis purpose doctors check on the particular part of the body like skin, hair, and nails, etc.

For the diagnosis purpose a few tests are done such as:

  • Wood’s UV lamp test to determine the presence of fungus
  • Potassium hydroxide preparation test, to detect the fungi
  • Culture and sensitivity test
  • Blood sample testing is also done to determine the presence of systemic fungus
  • Urine test also helps fuel
  • The doctor may also recommend testing sputum, bone marrow, or tissues of the infected area to be taken for testing
  • Many other tests are also performed to identify the presence of fungi or to specify the presence of a particular fungus, like:
  1. Microscopic tests
  2. X-rays scanning
  3. Blood antibody test
  4. DNA detection test
  5. Agar Culture test etc.

Antifungal drugs and treatment:

Various antifungal medications are successfully used for the treatment of infections caused by fungi. Here is the few common prescription and over the counter antifungal drugs used to remove fungal infections:

  • Clomitrazole that comes in the tablet and lotion form
  • Amphotericin B is given by intravenous injection
  • Nystatin, a drug very similar in composition to amphotericin b
  • A standard topical antifungal drug known as ketoconazole is also available in oral dosage forms to treat systemic fungal infections in the body

Generally, this hormone is used to treat infertility in women. Men can also take HCG to increase sperm count and its widely available in the injectable form.

What is HCG? 

 HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a form of the hormone that supports the development of an egg in a woman’s ovary. It can also stimulate the secretion of the egg during ovulation. Boys can also take HCG injections when their testicles have not dropped down, caused by a pituitary gland disorder, into the scrotum. Internet users can order HCG online and use it with care, buy HCG online from the several medical –shopping websites.
