What Is Leprosy

 

Leprosy causes skin sores that are severe and disfiguring, nerve damage in arms, legs, and any skin area around the body. The infection results in lesions in the body, which are flat, red and irregular in shape. Destruction in nerves leads to sensory loss. Gangrene may also follow.

It is an infectious disease. You can catch leprosy if you come into repeated and close contact with mouth and nose droplets from a patient with untreated leprosy. Children are more susceptible to infection than adults.

Leprosy is curable, though deformities caused due to leprosy often can’t be reversed.

What Is Vitiligo

In vitiligo, the skin loses its pigment. Pigment (also called melanin) is produced by the cells called melanocytes and causes the skin color.

Some people lose pigment in patches of a normal skin, and this pigment is replaced by white flat patches with irregular borders. These patches, caused due to loss of pigmentation, can occur in a small portion of the body or areas covering over 50% of the body.  Body parts that are more exposed to the sun are more likely to be affected by vitiligo. E.g. hands, arms, face or feet. However, sometimes it can happen in genitalia also.

Vitiligo can be managed but not cured. You’ll need to handle the disorder for rest of your life. Since vitiligo isn’t contagious and doesn’t cause pain, it isn’t dangerous. Vitiligo can affect females and males equally. The depigmentation or patches are more noticeable/ visible in people with dark skin.

It is very important to seek professional help to get rid of depression. 

What Is Joint Pain

Joint pain may occur due to several reasons. One or more joints may become inflamed and painful. Joints in the body comprise muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments and many other tissues. Damage or injury to a joint may involve any of these parts and due to this, it may be quite difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of the joint pain.

Typically, the joints that get affected are the hip and the knee joints, as these joints have a wide movement range and are also flexible. The hip and knee joints bear almost the entire weight of the body and also endure a lot of stress. 

What Is Hair fall, Alopecia

  • Headaches are classified as either primary or secondary.
  • Primary headaches include Tension headaches, Migraines, Cluster Headaches.
  • Secondary headaches include headaches due any other reasons (see causes below)
  • Investigations done for headaches depend on the suspected cause of a headache.

There may be features of neurological fall-out, such of loss of power or sensation in one hand, that may suggest bleeding in the brain or a mass or tumour pressing on nerve fibres.
  • Special investigations done include radiological investigations and laboratory tests, depending on the suspected causative factor of a headache.
  • Blood test for infective markers as well as a lumbar puncture will be done in suspected meningitis. CT scans or MRIs (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) are done in suspected intracranial masses(tumours), aneurysms (abnormal outpouchings formed in blood vessel linings) or bleeding.

What Is Jaundice

Jaundice, also called hyperbilirubinemia, is yellowing of the skin, white portions of the eyes, mucous membranes. It is caused by an increase in the levels of a chemical called bilirubin.  Bilirubin is a waste material in the blood. Jaundice occurs when the bilirubin level in the blood exceeds the safe limit of  2.5-3 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter). Jaundice is not a disease in itself, but e visible sign of an underlying disease process.

Some medical conditions leading to jaundice can be life-threatening. It can happen to anyone starting from the newborn baby to old age people.

What Is Wound healing

A kind of injury that is caused by various factors like an accident, surgery and certain diseases is called a wound. The skin may get punctured, cut, or torn to form a wound.

Wounds are classified into five categories, which depend upon their causes.

  • Abrasion: When skin is scraped or rubbed against a hard or rough surface, Abrasion is caused. An example of an abrasion is a road rash. Not much of bleeding is there in abrasion, but one must get the wound scrubbed, and cleaned, to abstain from any infection.
  • Incision: Incision is caused by a pointed or sharp object, like a razor blade, broken piece of glass, and knife. Incision causes a lot of bleeding. An incision, which is deep can cause damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Laceration: A deep and rooted tear, or cut in the skin is called laceration. Accidental cuts with machines, tools, or knife may cause a laceration. In this, wound bleed extensively, and rapidly.
  • Puncture: A small hole may be caused by a pointed, long object, like an ice pick, needles, or nail is called puncture. Even a bullet shot can result in a puncture wound. This wound is enough deep to impair the body’s internal organs, though may not bleed that much. A Puncture wound may need an immediate expert vigilance. In some cases, even tetanus is required to prevent the infection.
  • Avulsion: An Avulsion is an extreme form of a wound. In this, the skin may tear away completely, or partially.  This wound may occur at the time of a vicious accident like a gunshot, explosion, or body-crushing accidents. These wounds may bleed rapidly, and heavily.

What Is Hypertension

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure in common language, is a long term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. 

What Is Immunity building

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.

What Is Vitamin B deficiency

There are many types of Vitamin B like Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, and B12.  All these types of vitamins are the building blocks of our immune system and keep us energetic. Lack of these vitamins can lead to many health issues like fatigue, anemia or skin rash etc. 

What Is Common cold

The common cold is simply referred to as cold as well. The common cold is a contagious disease caused by viruses. It occurs in the upper part of the respiratory tract which affects mainly the nose. The body parts that may get affected by common cold are voice box, sinus, and throat. Symptoms and signs of the common cold may start to appear within two days after the exposure to the virus.The common cold is accompanied by a headache, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, coughing and sometimes fever as well. Generally, it might take a week to 10 days in the recovery. Some of the symptoms can stay even for three weeks. When the symptoms of common cold worsen, it can turn into Pneumonia.

The force of around 200 viruses is involved for causing the common cold. A virus known as rhinovirus is the most prevalent cause of common cold. Common cold vaccines are not yet available. The antidote of the common cold is also not yet made but relieve to the patients can be provided by treating the symptoms.

In humans, the common cold is one of the most reoccurring infectious diseases. Averagely, an adult may suffer from cold from a couple of times to four times in a year. Cold occurs mainly in winters. 

What Is Leukemia

Leukemia is a group of cancers that result in high level of abnormal white blood cells. It usually starts in bone marrow or blood. These white blood cells, called leukaemia cells or blasts, are not fully developed and their DNA gets damaged. Healthy blood cells die after some time and the new one grow. But, in leukaemia, old cells do not die when they need to and keep growing. They occupy more space and eventually leave no space for good cells.

What Is Obesity

  • Obesity is defined as the build-up of excessive or abnormal fat that may spoil health. BMI (body mass index) calculated by dividing the body’s mass by the square of body height, gives a rough idea of the tissue mass in an individual and helps in categorizing the individual as being underweight, normal weight or overweight.
  • Obese people are prone to cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal abnormalities, and various kinds of cancer. Consuming healthy foods and regular physical activities can help prevent or reduce obesity.    

What Is Acne

  • Acne, known as Acne Vulgaris, is one of the commonest dermatological complaints.
  • Acne is especially prevalent during puberty and young adulthood, although some people may still suffer from it into their middle years. Acne is known in the general population as "pimples."
  • Acne occurs when skin pores are blocked by excess sebum (natural oil produced by the skin) and by dead skin cells. As the sebum builds up, it causes inflammation of the surrounding skin. The lump that forms under the skin because of this blockage is called a comedo. A group of lumps is called comedones.
  • If not treated properly acne can lead to permanent scarring. Acne also has important psychological implications such as low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, especially in youths.    

What Is Bone health

Bones act as splendid biological parts of the body to store calcium, anchor muscles, protect organs, and deliver body structure. To ensure that our bones are healthy, they keep on changing their size, shape, and position throughout life. New bones in the body keep forming as old bones deteriorate. Younger people develop new bones faster while the old bones break. This increases the bone density.

After a certain age, the bones in the body start depleting, but some develop various disorders, which deplete the bone mass faster compared to the normal speed. Depletion in bone health is generally characterized by two major disorders. These are:

  • Osteopenia: Osteopenia is a medical disorder in which the mineral and protein content of the bone tissue reduces but not that severely. A person with osteopenia may not necessarily witness a bone fracture but still, the condition defects the bone health.
  • Osteoporosis: Osteoporosis is marked as a more severe condition than osteopenia and the bones become very weak in the former condition. This is due to the loss of vitamin D and calcium leading to a more severe case and permanent damage of the bone tissue. This results in progressive depletion of the bone density. 

What Is Dry Eye Syndrome

  • Dry eye syndrome is a condition, in which lacrimal glands do not produce enough moisture or tears that are required to maintain the health of eye surface.

  • Acne is classified as either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne.
  • Comedones are non-inflammatory acne. They can either be closed (whiteheads) or open (blackheads). The color of a blackhead is not debris or an indication of bad skin hygiene, but melanin (the skin’s surface pigment).
  • Inflammatory acne occurs when bacteria invade the skin, causing papules or pustules (pimples). Nodules and cysts are also inflammatory lesions. Nodules are deeper skin lesions, while cysts are fluid-filled lumps. 
  • Acne usually presents in common areas of increased oil production such as the forehead, nose, chin, chest and upper back.
  • Acne can be classified as mild, moderate or severe, depending on the amount and type of lesions. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Bone health

Depletion in bone health can be determined by a number of factors. Some of these symptoms have been mentioned below:

  • Decreased grip strength: As people grow older, there are chances of the weakening of bones unless a healthy nutrition-intake is not part of the diet. One of the main ways of judging the weakening of bones is checking the grip strength as it involves the use of bones and muscles in the arms and hands. If a patient feels that the grip strength is depleting, then there are chances that he/she is suffering from bone health depletion.
  • Bone pain: Bone pain is one of the main symptoms of the disintegration of bone health and the main reason behind it is the deficiency of vitamin D from the body.
  • Decreased height: This case arises if the person is severely affected by bone health depletion. Height loss occurs when the bone tissue is reduced progressively leading to a reduction in overall height.
  • Brittle and weak fingernails: If a patient's fingernails are easily breaking and losing their grip with the bone tissue, then it is likely that the person is suffering from bone loss.
  • Bone fracture/ brittle bones: If bone fractures occur more often in the person, then his/her bone health may not be in a good condition.
  • Receding gums: Receding gums is not an uncommon symptom. While it may not be the main symptoms for bone health disintegration, it does count as an important symptom. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Dry Eye Syndrome

  • The symptoms are sore, itchy, dry and red eyes. The eyes are often heavy and fatigued and can also lead to photophobia (light sensitivity). Watery eyes can also be a symptom as dry eyes can over-stimulate the production of lubricator.

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.

What Are The Worst Foods For Bone health

 

The decrease in bone health may have multiple reasons behind it, but the primary reason for bone health degradation is the kind of food a person consumes. Hence, the worst foods that should be avoided are:

  • Caffeine: With the consumption of coffee, magnesium and calcium are excreted in the urine at a much higher rate. Research says that consumption of two cups of coffee can lead to bone disintegration. Also, consumption of three coffee cups takes away around 45mg of calcium from the body. This risk keeps on worsening on more and more consumption of coffee, which ultimately leads to the fracturing of the hip bone.
  • Alcohol: Alcohol is one of the worst food items that increase the risks of bone health degradation. Consumption of regular alcohol deteriorates overall health, including bones. This is because alcohol acts as an inhibitor of the absorption of essential minerals as it reduces the magnesium levels in the body. Excessive intake of alcohol too can lead to bone fracture with time.
  • Salts: Too much salt consumption leads to removal of calcium through the urine in the body. Sodium that is present in foods at 20% or above is not suitable for the bones, so they ought to be avoided.
  • Saturated fat foods: Saturated fat is not recommended to be a part of the diet of a person suffering from bone health depletion. Saturated fat will act as a counterproductive compound, leading to the thinning of the bones. This will eventually lead to bone fracture. Some well-known foods that contain saturated fats are tropical oils, cream, butter, lard, poultry skin, and red meat.

  • Hydrating fluids: Dried out nasal passage and throat can encourage the growth and survival of flu and cold germs. Hence, it is important to consume lots of fluid all the time to maintain the moisture of mucous membrane. The moist mucous membrane can trap the germs easily and does not let them enter the respiratory system. Then these viruses can be blown out or can be ingested in the digestive system. These viruses get killed by the acids in the stomach; hence do not let one fall sick. Keep oneself well-hydrated not just prevent the common cold but also, pacify the symptoms. When one suffering from strep throat, he/she can mix a little honey in warm water to get some relief.  Some of the fluids one can consume are fresh fruit juices (especially rich in vitamin C, water, and decaffeinated tea.)  One’s goal should be the consumption of 8-10 glasses of fluid or water.

What Are The Best Foods For Bone health

For maintaining healthy and strong bones, it is recommended that the intake of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D and calcium is promoted in the person with bone health loss. So, here is a list of important food items:

  • Lean-protein diet: Protein helps with generating collagen fibres that help with maintaining the bone structure. Moreover, protein taken in adequate amounts by the body helps in strengthening the bone tissues. On the other hand, a high-protein diet, which is usually followed in weight loss programs, may lead to reduced bone density. In addition, a study stated that older adults with low protein have a higher risk of developing weak bones and that too, rapidly. A lean-protein diet comprises of food items like seeds and nuts, beans, fish, skinless poultry, chicken, etc. 
  • Fruits and Vegetables: While research on the evident benefits of fruits and vegetables in a person's diet suffering from bone health loss is still progressing, many experts say that it is helpful with the reduction of calcium loss in the bones. Another study suggests that it is due to flavonoids and phenols in the fruits and vegetables that help strengthen the bones. Furthermore, such healthy foods comprise of a rich quantity of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that are all stored inside bones for increasing their density. Fruits and vegetables that are good for bones are Chinese cabbage, collard greens, okra, broccoli, dandelion greens, turnip greens, kale, mustard greens, oranges, kiwi, prunes, rhubarb, prickly pears, dried apricots, etc.
  • Eggs: Even though the composition of an egg is limited with only 6% vitamin D, it is a food item that is easily available. However, readers should note that the vitamin D is not in the egg white, but the egg yolk.
  • Sardines: Sardines are often spotted as canned food items that unbelievably have high calcium and vitamin D levels. For people who do not mind eating fish, sardines turn out to be one of the most prominent sources of the key ingredients for maintaining bone health.
  • Cheese: Calcium is a key ingredient found in cheese, but that does not make it eatable in excess. Maintaining a healthy cheese-eating habit comprises of about 1.5 ounces of its consumption on a daily basis. However, cheese is not able to fulfil the intake of vitamin D so the person with bone health loss may need some other source for the vitamin-part.
  • Milk: Another rich source of calcium is milk that can cover up at least 30% of daily calcium intake. Moreover, there are many brands that offer milk rich in vitamin D as well. This makes it another healthy food item for bolstering those weak bones.
  • Yogurt: A cup of yoghurt a day can help with maintaining a healthy diet comprising of essential minerals including calcium and vitamin D. Do note that for the ones who are considering opting for Greek yoghurt may not find it a rich source of calcium and vitamin D.

  • Caffeine: With the consumption of coffee, magnesium and calcium are excreted in the urine at a much higher rate. Research says that consumption of two cups of coffee can lead to bone disintegration. Also, consumption of three coffee cups takes away around 45mg of calcium from the body. This risk keeps on worsening on more and more consumption of coffee, which ultimately leads to the fracturing of the hip bone.
  • Alcohol: Alcohol is one of the worst food items that increase the risks of bone health degradation. Consumption of regular alcohol deteriorates overall health, including bones. This is because alcohol acts as an inhibitor of the absorption of essential minerals as it reduces the magnesium levels in the body. Excessive intake of alcohol too can lead to bone fracture with time.
  • Salts: Too much salt consumption leads to removal of calcium through the urine in the body. Sodium that is present in foods at 20% or above is not suitable for the bones, so they ought to be avoided.
  • Saturated fat foods: Saturated fat is not recommended to be a part of the diet of a person suffering from bone health depletion. Saturated fat will act as a counterproductive compound, leading to the thinning of the bones. This will eventually lead to bone fracture. Some well-known foods that contain saturated fats are tropical oils, cream, butter, lard, poultry skin, and red meat.

One of the main ways of judging the weakening of bones is checking the grip strength as it involves the use of bones and muscles in the arms and hands. If a patient feels that the grip strength is depleting, then there are chances that he/she is suffering from bone health depletion.
  • Bone pain: Bone pain is one of the main symptoms of the disintegration of bone health and the main reason behind it is the deficiency of vitamin D from the body.
  • Decreased height: This case arises if the person is severely affected by bone health depletion. Height loss occurs when the bone tissue is reduced progressively leading to a reduction in overall height.
  • Brittle and weak fingernails: If a patient's fingernails are easily breaking and losing their grip with the bone tissue, then it is likely that the person is suffering from bone loss.
  • Bone fracture/ brittle bones: If bone fractures occur more often in the person, then his/her bone health may not be in a good condition.
  • Receding gums: Receding gums is not an uncommon symptom. While it may not be the main symptoms for bone health disintegration, it does count as an important symptom. 

What Are The Symptoms Of Dry Eye Syndrome

  • The symptoms are sore, itchy, dry and red eyes. The eyes are often heavy and fatigued and can also lead to photophobia (light sensitivity). Watery eyes can also be a symptom as dry eyes can over-stimulate the production of lubricator.    

Causes of diseases where NOGRAY KIT is used

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.
