What Is Acidity

Acidity is a set of symptoms caused due to excess production of acid by gastric glands of the stomach. The stomach usually secretes hydrochloric acid that is required for breakdown and digestion of food eaten by us. Excess production of hydrochloric acid causes acidity.

What Is Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Diabetes mellitus (type 2) is characterized by high blood sugar, relative lack of insulin and insulin resistance. It is a long term metabolic disorder.

Long term complications of diabetes are diabetic retinopathy, resulting in blindness, heart disease, strokes, kidney failure, poor flow of blood in limbs requiring amputation.

What Is High Cholesterol

Dyslipidaemia or high cholesterol indicate the imbalance of fats (or lipids) in one’s blood system.

High cholesterol or dyslipidaemia, means that there is an imbalance of fats (or lipids), circulating in one’s blood stream. The body uses cholesterol (the fatty substance) to metabolize food and also make hormones.

The following three different measurements are used to determine one’s overall lipid health:

1.    Low-Density Lipoprotein (bad cholesterol, LDL): The higher LDL, the more is the risk of cardiovascular disease. LDL obstructs the proper blood flow into the heart and other organs by building up plaque in arteries.

2.     High-Density Lipoprotein (Good cholesterol, HDL): HDL brings back the cholesterol to the liver from other parts of the body, thus removing the harmful cholesterols from your body. The higher the HDL, the better it is for the heart.

3.   Triglycerides – Also referred to as fat in the blood. This type of fat is usually found in eatable animal fats and vegetable oils. High levels of Triglycerides signify the increased risk of cardiovascular disease as it also contributes to building up of a plaque in one’s arteries

What Is Liver cirrhosis

When the healthy liver cells are exposed to the continuous damage over an extended duration of time, it causes healthy tissues to get replaced by unhealthy, scarred tissues. This condition is commonly known as liver cirrhosis.

The liver becomes hard, and lumpy due to the scar tissues. After this condition, the liver starts failing. Because of the scar tissues, it gets difficult for the blood to pass through the large vein, which connects to the liver. This causes blood to back up in the large vein or the portal vein, which may lead to the blood to get in the spleen. Hence, damaging the function of the spleen as well.

Liver transplant is the only solution in the condition of liver cirrhosis. But, it can be controlled by controlling the factors causing liver cirrhosis. 

What Is Alzheimers disease

Alzheimer’s is an irreversible brain disorder, which causes problems with memory, thinking and even worsens over time. It could destroy memory, ability to think and eventually ability to do simplest tasks in life.

What Is Dementia

Dementia is a neurological term that covers a spectrum of symptoms. It encompasses a progressive decline in cognitive, emotional as well as social functioning that occurs at a rate more progressive than would be expected due to normal ageing. The death of cells in the cerebral cortex, responsible for memory, calculation and behaviour/personality is the underlying pathophysiology.

The new term for dementia as defined by the DSM-V Manual (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is "Major Neurocognitive Disorder." The reason for the change in terminology is to lessen the stigma related to the disease.

There are different types of dementias, based on their underlying pathology and clinical presentation. Dementias can either be reversible in 1-2% of cases, non-progressive, or progressive ( a majority of cases).

Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia (progressive dementias) are the commonest types of dementia. Alzheimers Dementia (AD) occurs in between fifty to seventy percent of cases, and Vascular Dementia (VD) in about twenty percent of cases.

To date, there are no specific cures for dementia. Disease progression can be retarded by certain lifestyle factors such as diet, mental activities, social participation, and exercise.

What Is Depression

  • It refers to the state of low mood or dislikes towards an activity that can affect an individual’s behaviour, thoughts, feelings and overall health. There is a feeling of severe dejection despondency. The degree of depression and the type of depression varies from a person to person. It is very important to seek professional help to get rid of depression. 

What Is Eczema

Eczema also called atopic dermatitis, is a set of skin conditions that cause the skin inflammation and irritation.

It commonly appears on face, wrists, hands, knees or feet. It may also affect other areas.

Eczema is not contagious; hence there is no risk of it getting spread from one person to another.

  • Eating processed foods, freid/oily foods, 

What Are The Causes Of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Type 2 diabetes mainly occurs because of obesity and lack of exercise. Some people are at more risk genetically than others. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by regular exercise, maintaining normal weight and proper diet.

What Are The Causes Of High Cholesterol

  • Obesity
  • Eating fatty foods
  • No physical exercise
  • Age (after 20, it starts to rise).
  • Family history

What Are The Causes Of Liver cirrhosis

Certain common factors that may cause liver cirrhosis can be as followed:

  • Alcohol abuse for a long term
  • Infections caused due to Hepatitis B and C
  • Diseases caused due to fatty liver.
  • Toxic metals.
  • Diseases caused due to genetics.

Out of the above-mentioned causes hepatitis B and considered the major cause of liver cirrhosis.  These causes are mentioned below in detail.

  • Too much of alcohol intake: Liver breaks down toxins in addition to alcohol. And, when the quantity is too large, the liver has to over work resulting in the gradual damage of the liver cells.Long-term, heavy, and regular drinkers are at a higher risk of developing liver cirrhosis if compared to non-alcohol consumers. One who is drinking regularly for over past 10 years is more likely to develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Generally, there are three stages of liver diseases. These liver disease stages are caused by alcohol consumption. These are as follows:
  • Fatty liver: In this stage fat is developed on the liver.
  • Alcoholic hepatitis: About 35% of the regular alcohol consumers establish alcoholic hepatitis. In this condition, liver cells tend to swell.
  • Liver cirrhosis: Around 10% of regular and heavy drinkers gradually develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Hepatitis:  Hepatitis c is a blood borne disease in which liver can get damaged slowly leading to liver cirrhosis. Hepatitis C is the major factor of liver cirrhosis in North America, Western Europe, and various other areas of the world. Liver Cirrhosis may be caused by hepatitis D and B as well.
  • Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis starts with the deposition of a high amount of fat in the liver, in the early stage. This deposited fat may cause scarring and inflammation of tissues, which results in liver cirrhosis eventually. People with high blood pressure, high blood-lipid, high blood sugar level, obesity are more prone to NASH
  • Autoimmune hepatitis: An immune system of a person may attack the organs like liver that are in healthy conditions.This may lead to eventual development of liver cirrhosis.
  • Certain genetic conditions.
  • Hemochromatosis – Iron may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Wilson's disease - copper may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Blockage in the bile-ducts: Certain diseases and conditions like cancer of the pancreas, cancer of bile duct may block the bile-duct, which increases the risk of liver cirrhosis.
  • Budd-Chiari syndrome: The blood vessels, which carry the blood from liver also known as hepatic veins develop a blood clot or thrombosis. This may lead to the enlargement of the liver and develops the collateral vessels.

A few other conditions and diseases, which may cause liver cirrhosis are as follows:

  • Cystic fibrosis.
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis: In this disease, bile duct tends to harden and scarred.
  • Galactosemia: It is an inability of a body to process the sugar present in the milk.
  • Schistosomiasis:  A parasite prevalently found in certain developing countries.
  • Biliary atresia - Badly developed bile ducts in the babies.
  • Glycogen storage disease: issues in vital energy release and storage for proper cell functioning.

What Are The Causes Of Alzheimers disease

Scientists believe that the cause of this disease is a combination of genetic (carrying certain genes), the lifestyle of an individual and environmental factors that could affect the brain. 

What Are The Causes Of Dementia

Potentially reversible causes of dementia include medications or alcohol. Dementia due to medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, hydrocephalus, Vitamin B 12 deficiency, neurosyphilis and major depressive disorder may be potentially reversible when the underlying condition is properly treated. Immunological causes of dementia such as Sjögren’s syndrome, SLE, and multiple sclerosis may also be reversible.

Non-progressive dementia is due to conditions such as:

  • Head injury (traumatic brain injury)
  • Brain tumours
  • Meningitis/ Encephalitis
  • Drug Abuse

Alzheimer's is caused by degeneration of the cerebral cortex and deposits of protein in the neural tissue. To date, no specific cause or preventable factors could be found for Alzheimer's. Old age and family history are the two biggest factors. Twenty percent of people with Alzheimer are over the age of eighty years. Family history is another important factor, although no particular gene could yet be identified.

Vascular dementia is caused by a series of small strokes in the brain. Narrowing of blood vessels or blood clots causes decreased blood flow to areas of the brain. The lack of blood flow is called ischaemia. Atherosclerosis is the biggest cause of cerebral ischaemia. Hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia all predispose to atherosclerosis formation. Treating these conditions may prevent the progression of vascular dementia, but cannot reverse the loss of function already present. Multiple areas of infarction may be seen on MRI scans. 

Frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, and Creutzfeld-Jacob disease are other causes of progressive dementia.

What Are The Causes Of Depression

  • Depression is a brain disorder that can be caused by one or combination of factors like grief, changes in hormone levels, stress, substance abuse, genetic characteristics or stress.
  • Continued grief in personal or professional life also leads to low moods and dejection.    

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.

What Are The Causes Of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Type 2 diabetes mainly occurs because of obesity and lack of exercise. Some people are at more risk genetically than others. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by regular exercise, maintaining normal weight and proper diet.

What Are The Causes Of High Cholesterol

  • Obesity
  • Eating fatty foods
  • No physical exercise
  • Age (after 20, it starts to rise).
  • Family history

What Are The Causes Of Liver cirrhosis

Certain common factors that may cause liver cirrhosis can be as followed:

  • Alcohol abuse for a long term
  • Infections caused due to Hepatitis B and C
  • Diseases caused due to fatty liver.
  • Toxic metals.
  • Diseases caused due to genetics.

Out of the above-mentioned causes hepatitis B and considered the major cause of liver cirrhosis.  These causes are mentioned below in detail.

  • Too much of alcohol intake: Liver breaks down toxins in addition to alcohol. And, when the quantity is too large, the liver has to over work resulting in the gradual damage of the liver cells.Long-term, heavy, and regular drinkers are at a higher risk of developing liver cirrhosis if compared to non-alcohol consumers. One who is drinking regularly for over past 10 years is more likely to develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Generally, there are three stages of liver diseases. These liver disease stages are caused by alcohol consumption. These are as follows:
  • Fatty liver: In this stage fat is developed on the liver.
  • Alcoholic hepatitis: About 35% of the regular alcohol consumers establish alcoholic hepatitis. In this condition, liver cells tend to swell.
  • Liver cirrhosis: Around 10% of regular and heavy drinkers gradually develop liver cirrhosis.
  • Hepatitis:  Hepatitis c is a blood borne disease in which liver can get damaged slowly leading to liver cirrhosis. Hepatitis C is the major factor of liver cirrhosis in North America, Western Europe, and various other areas of the world. Liver Cirrhosis may be caused by hepatitis D and B as well.
  • Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH): Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis starts with the deposition of a high amount of fat in the liver, in the early stage. This deposited fat may cause scarring and inflammation of tissues, which results in liver cirrhosis eventually. People with high blood pressure, high blood-lipid, high blood sugar level, obesity are more prone to NASH
  • Autoimmune hepatitis: An immune system of a person may attack the organs like liver that are in healthy conditions.This may lead to eventual development of liver cirrhosis.
  • Certain genetic conditions.
  • Hemochromatosis – Iron may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Wilson's disease - copper may get accumulated in the liver and other body parts.
  • Blockage in the bile-ducts: Certain diseases and conditions like cancer of the pancreas, cancer of bile duct may block the bile-duct, which increases the risk of liver cirrhosis.
  • Budd-Chiari syndrome: The blood vessels, which carry the blood from liver also known as hepatic veins develop a blood clot or thrombosis. This may lead to the enlargement of the liver and develops the collateral vessels.

A few other conditions and diseases, which may cause liver cirrhosis are as follows:

  • Cystic fibrosis.
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis: In this disease, bile duct tends to harden and scarred.
  • Galactosemia: It is an inability of a body to process the sugar present in the milk.
  • Schistosomiasis:  A parasite prevalently found in certain developing countries.
  • Biliary atresia - Badly developed bile ducts in the babies.
  • Glycogen storage disease: issues in vital energy release and storage for proper cell functioning.

What Are The Causes Of Alzheimers disease

Scientists believe that the cause of this disease is a combination of genetic (carrying certain genes), the lifestyle of an individual and environmental factors that could affect the brain. 

What Are The Causes Of Dementia

Potentially reversible causes of dementia include medications or alcohol. Dementia due to medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, hydrocephalus, Vitamin B 12 deficiency, neurosyphilis and major depressive disorder may be potentially reversible when the underlying condition is properly treated. Immunological causes of dementia such as Sjögren’s syndrome, SLE, and multiple sclerosis may also be reversible.

Non-progressive dementia is due to conditions such as:

  • Head injury (traumatic brain injury)
  • Brain tumours
  • Meningitis/ Encephalitis
  • Drug Abuse

Alzheimer's is caused by degeneration of the cerebral cortex and deposits of protein in the neural tissue. To date, no specific cause or preventable factors could be found for Alzheimer's. Old age and family history are the two biggest factors. Twenty percent of people with Alzheimer are over the age of eighty years. Family history is another important factor, although no particular gene could yet be identified.

Vascular dementia is caused by a series of small strokes in the brain. Narrowing of blood vessels or blood clots causes decreased blood flow to areas of the brain. The lack of blood flow is called ischaemia. Atherosclerosis is the biggest cause of cerebral ischaemia. Hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia all predispose to atherosclerosis formation. Treating these conditions may prevent the progression of vascular dementia, but cannot reverse the loss of function already present. Multiple areas of infarction may be seen on MRI scans. 

Frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, and Creutzfeld-Jacob disease are other causes of progressive dementia.

What Are The Causes Of Depression

  • Depression is a brain disorder that can be caused by one or combination of factors like grief, changes in hormone levels, stress, substance abuse, genetic characteristics or stress.
  • Continued grief in personal or professional life also leads to low moods and dejection.    

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.
