What Is Dengue

Dengue is, basically, a viral infection which happens when an infected female mosquito bites you. There are four different types of dengue viruses which are DEN1, DEN2, DEN3, and DEN4. They determine whether your infection is treatable or extremely severe. In many cases, dengue can lead to a life-threatening situation, and problems like bleeding can occur. This flu type sickness can affect babies, young children, and adults. 

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 Diarrhoea

  • Diarrhoea is an increased frequency of bowel movements (stools) and also increased looseness of the motion. Diarrhoea can be due to higher fluid secretion into the intestine, minimal fluid absorption by the intestines or swift passage of stool from the intestine.
  • Acute Diarrhoea stays for 4 to 5 days but the chronic Diarrhoea can last up to 4 weeks. Recurrent and severe Diarrhoea can be a sign of an intestinal disease. 

What Is Skin care

  • Skin care is mutliple activities carried on to ensure healthy looking skin devoid of any diseases and deformities.

What Is Gallstone

  • Gallstones are known as “cholelithiasis” in medical terminology.
  • The gallbladder is used to store bile. Bile is a natural substance, released by the gallbladder to help with digestion of fatty foods. Bile causes emulsification of fats so that they can easily be broken down and absorbed by the gastrointestinal system.
  • Gallstones occur when “stones” are formed from the bile in the gallbladder. This may either be because of excess cholesterol or excess bile pigments called bilirubin in the bile. The stones can vary in size and number.
  • Gallstones may cause inflammation of the gallbladder; they may move into bile ducts and cause obstruction of bile ducts, leading to a build up of bile products such as bilirubin, which leads to jaundice. They can also move further down the bile ducts causing inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis).    

What Is Irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a group of symptoms characterized by abdominal discomfort along with troubled bowel habits. It is not the as inflammatory bowel disease but a more serious condition that causes inflammation in the digestive tract and can result in severe complications. It is a chronic condition and seeks a long-term management. Unlike Inflammatory Bowel Disease, this does not cause changes in bowel tissue. It is classified based on the predominance of diarrhea or constipation or both such as:

  • IBS-D: Diarrhoea-Predominant.
  • IBS-C: Constipation- Predominant.
  • IBS-A: Alternating stool pattern (also IBS-M).
  • IBS-U: For those who don’t fit under any of the above categories.

What Is Ulcerative colitis

Immunity building refers to any measures taken to assist and strengthen the body’s immune system to function optimally and to help ward off disease. Proper functioning is necessary for us to maintain ideal health.

The state in which the immune system is functioning sub-optimally is called immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiency states can have serious consequences e.g. predisposing to life-threatening infective diseases or cancer. Overfunctioning of the immune system is also common. Conditions in which the immune system over functions are hypersensitivity reactions or allergies, as well as autoimmune diseases (when the immune system recognises the body's cells as "foreign" and starts to attack them).

The immune system is intricately and very detailed in its design. The system is divided into innate and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the body’s first defence against external factors. These include physical defence mechanisms such as skin, mucosa and cell walls, as well as scavenger immune molecules that catch foreign particles in the blood and lymphatic streams.

 It is an immediate defence mechanism and non-specific. It does not adapt over time. White blood cells called macrophages and phagocytes form part of the body’s innate system. Once the innate immune system recognises a threat to the body, these cells activate a system called the complement cascade which leads to further activation of more of the immune system's cells.

The adaptive immune system is more focused and contains antibodies that are formed after exposure to specific foreign substances called antigens. Antibodies are called immunoglobulins, and lymphocytes are the cells responsible for activation of the innate immune system.

Poor diet, fatigue, stress as well as certain substances or medications can all lead to over- or underperformance of the immune system. Organs that form part of the immune systems include your spleen, tonsils/ adenoids, lymphatic system and bone marrow.

  • Pancreatitis may present with similar symptoms as cholecystitis, and often special investigations need to be done to determine the cause of symptoms.
  • Special investigations most commonly performed are an abdominal ultrasound (first line investigation in uncomplicated cholelithiasis). A contrasted CT scan of the abdomen is usually performed if complications are suspected. If gallstones and infection of the bile ducts are suspect a special type of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) called a MRCP might be performed.

When an infected person is bitten by the mosquito, the virus enters them too, and they can spread it around by biting someone else. The infection goes deep into your bloodstream, which is the reason it is a hard to treat the problem.
  • There is a risk of developing the fever again which is known as the hemorrhagic fever, and it increases if you are infected the second time or the third time.

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 Diarrhoea

  • The main cause is the virus that infects gut. However various other causes are an allergy to a food, alcohol, diabetes, diabetes to the intestines, medications, Laxatives, radiation therapy, running, surgery, cancers, troublesome nutrition absorption.

  • Using too much of make-up, using poor quality of makeup products, not removing makeup before sleeping
  • Any skin disease, any problem like imbalance of hormones

What Are The Causes Of Gallstone

  • Risk factors for gallstones are numerous:
  1. Diet plays an important role, especially a diet high in unsaturated fats
  2. Middle-aged men and women are more often affected.
  3. Females are affected more than males, and more often during their years of fertility. Pregnancy and oral contraceptives are known risk factors.
  4. Being overweight or obese is a predisposing factor
  5. Abnormal cholesterol and blood lipid profile
  6. Metabolic syndrome (a syndrome characterised by three factors present of either dyslipidemia, obesity, high blood pressure or diabetes)

  8. Liver disease such as cirrhosis
  9. Genetics may increase your risk of gallstone formation up to five times compared to the standard population    

What Are The Causes Of Irritable bowel syndrome

The following are cited as the possible causes for irritable bowel syndrome:

  • Abnormal movements of the digestive tract.
  • Certain foods: People with irritable bowel syndrome experience worsening of the symptoms due to food sensitivity or allergy from certain foods like spices, fruits, fats, beans, milk, cauliflower, chocolates, broccoli, carbonated and alcoholic drinks, etc.   
  • Stress: People dealing with stress face more severe or aggravated symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Hormones: Women are more prone to Irritable bowel syndrome. During menstrual cycle symptoms of IBS get worsened.  
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
  • Overuse of antibiotics.
  • Bowel muscle spasm.
  • Deficient enzyme where the pancreas doesn’t release required enzymes, and it results in a breakdown of food or improper digestion.

What Are The Causes Of Ulcerative colitis

No specific cause of ulcerative colitis has yet been identified, but numerous factors are thought to play a role:

  • Genetics- higher incidence of recurrence if a family member is affected. Higher rates of infection in identical twins. No specific genomic defect could be identified up to date
  • Diet- Diets high in pro-inflammatory foods such as saturated fatty acids, refined starches and alcohol are suggested to have some influence in predisposing to ulcerative colitis
  • Medications- Non-Steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), antibiotics and oral contraceptives may also play a contributory role.
  • Stress- Emotional and life stressors may have some effect on ulcerative colitis, although no specific studies have been definitive. Stress is considered to be a trigger of acute flare-ups in existing disease, rather than a cause.

What Are The Causes Of Urinary tract infection

  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by microbes such as bacteria that affect the bladder, kidneys and tubes connected to them.
  • Women are at greater risk of getting Urinary tract infections. It happens because the tube (called urethra), which carries the urine from the bladder to outside the body, is situated very close to the anus. Bacteria from E.coli like large intestine can easily enter the urethra after escaping the anus. They travel up to the bladder from there and keep infecting the kidney if the infection is not treated. Women have shorter urethras, making them more prone to UTIs, as bacteria can quickly enter the bladder.
  • Bacteria can be introduced in urinary tract by having sex with the infected partner too.
