What Is Skin care

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

What Is Anaemia

  • In Anaemia, lesser oxygen is carried around the body by red blood cells. Anemia can be of different types.

What Is Teeth health

Our teeth have a lot of work to do like chewing, grinding, biting, talking and also face the aging process. Hence, they need the care to keep them away from dental diseases. Brushing the teeth twice a day and flossing the mouth are age-old mantras to keep them healthy and safe. Other than this, attending routine dental check-ups and watching what you eat and drink are vital factors in deciding the health of your teeth.

The diseases of teeth are:

Dental decay:

Also called tooth decay, this happens due to adult bacteria which survive on refined white sugar. When we eat candy or other sugary food, some morsels stick to the teeth, gums and in between teeth. Bacteria feed on this sticky food and thrive, releasing a toxin which causes tooth decay. The solution is to brush teeth regularly and floss the mouth. Avoid eating sticky sugary food.

Gingivitis:

This is a gum disease and occurs in the mild alkaline to the mild acidic environment in the mouth. The cause of gingivitis is poor oral hygiene and lack of the certain type of enzymes which can digest food substances. Gingivitis is a reversible condition with proper dental treatment.

Periodontal disease:

If gingivitis is left untreated, it progresses into periodontal disease. In this disease, the plaque bacteria form crystals, which attach to the teeth, and these crystals destroy the ligaments, which attach teeth to the bone. As a result, pockets are formed, in which more food particles can be trapped and lodged. This causes the disease to progress, and eventually, it may lead to the removal of the tooth. The damage to the tooth and gum caused by periodontal disease is permanent and irreversible.

Mouth odor:

Also called bad breath or halitosis, mouth odor is due to remnants of food particles in the mouth. Enteric bacteria feed on these food particles and release an odor.  Again, good brushing and flossing habits and the kind of food we eat play a key factor in preventing bad breath.

What Is Hyperthyroidism

A thyroid is a butterfly-shaped small gland that is located in the front part of the neck. It produces two primary hormones namely tetraiodothyronine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones control cells’ energy consumption strategy. The thyroid gland regulates the metabolism by releasing these two hormones.

Hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid disease is referred to as a special condition of the thyroid. It occurs when thyroid gland starts to produce a large amount of T4, T3, or both. 

What Is Osteoarthritis

  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is also known as degenerative joint disease, degenerative arthritis is a chronic condition that can harm any join. However, the most likely affected parts are knees, hips, lower back, and neck, small joints of the fingers, thumb and the big toes’ base. 

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 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 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 Asthma

  • Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition of the airways in the lungs. Asthma can either be allergic (most common) or non-allergic.
  • Allergic asthma is due to an allergic response known as a type 1 hypersensitivity reaction. People with asthma’s airways are hypersensitive to certain triggers. The allergic reaction causes narrowing of the small airways and leads to "air trapping" (known as an obstructive airway disease)
  • There are different types of asthma- childhood onset asthma (usually before the age of 5), adult-onset asthma, exercise-induced asthma and aspirin induced asthma. Some asthma is known as seasonal asthma and occurs only at certain times of the year, usually with the changing of seasons such as during autumn or spring.
  • Asthma is diagnosed with lung function tests. A spirometer or a PEFM (Peak Expiratory Flow Meter) is used in conjunction with a bronchodilator. The meter is used to assess your lung function before and after inhaling a fast-acting bronchodilator. A diagnosis of asthma is made when there is an improvement in lung function of more than 20% (PEFM) or more than 12%(when using a spirometer) after the bronchodilator is inhaled.
  • Asthma is diagnosed when a patient has suggestive symptoms and a positive bronchodilator test.

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 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 Hypothyroidism

The thyroid gland is positioned at the front lower part of the neck. The hormones released by the particular gland pass through the bloodstream and affect almost every part of our body from our muscles to skin, and heart to the brain.

Hypothyroidism is referred to as the underactive thyroid disease. It is considered as a common disorder. In hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland does not make sufficient thyroid hormone.

The thyroid gland controls the energy (gained from food) consumption strategy of the cells and this particular process is called metabolism. Metabolism affects our body temperature, heartbeat, and calorie burning strategy. If our body doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone, then these above specified essential processes may slow down and as a result, our body will make insufficient energy and the metabolism will become sluggish.

Causes of diseases where ZINCOVIT TABLETS is used

What Are The Causes Of Anaemia

  • Deficiency of nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamin B 12, sickle cell anemia (a genetic blood disorder) or kidney disease can be amongst few causes of anemia.
  • The type of food you eat also affects the absorption of iron and folic acid.

What Are The Causes Of Teeth health

Dental diseases are caused by microorganisms that live in the mouth and release toxins causing damage to dental tissue. The mouth offers resources for the bacteria to survive and multiply. There are three types of bacteria thriving in the oral cavity - pathogenic, beneficial, and neutral. When the mouth is dominated by beneficial bacteria, then there is good dental health. When pathogenic bacteria dominate the oral cavity, it leads to dental diseases. Neutral bacteria follow whichever bacteria are dominant.

Causes of tooth and gum diseases are:

  • Sugary foods: When bacteria in the mouth combine with remnants of sugary or starchy food particles, they form a colourless, sticky substance called plaque. When you don’t remove plaque from mouth by proper brushing and flossing, it hardens into tartar or calculus. Removal of tartar will require a dental procedure by a dentist.
  • Acidic foods: Acidic drinks and foods attack the tooth enamel, thereby damaging it.  Soft drinks contain enormous amounts of sugar, which facilitate plaque formation. The acidic content of soft drinks erodes teeth enamel and causes damage to teeth.
  • Dry mouth: Saliva in the mouth is helpful in inhibiting plaque formation. People with dry mouth are more prone to dental problems. Dry mouth condition is caused by certain medications. Diseases like diabetes also cause dry mouth issues.
  • Grinding of teeth: People who grind teeth in their sleep or under stress are invariably damaging their teeth. The grinding process strips away the enamel (outer layer of teeth), thereby causing tooth decay.
  • Genetics: Some people inherit tooth crevices and enamel problems from parents. This can also lead to teeth problems.
  • Poor dental hygiene: Improper brushing and flossing is the number one cause of teeth problems.

What Are The Causes Of Hyperthyroidism

In most of the cases, Hyperthyroidism can be a result of Graves’ disease- an autoimmune disorder. In this case, antibodies produced for body immunity can stimulate the thyroid gland encouraging it to produce too much T4, T3, or both hormones. According to doctors, Graves’ disease may be genetic, and it is most commonly found among young women.

Other causes of Hyperthyroidism may be as follows:

  • Excess iodine that is a key ingredient of T4 and T3.
  • Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) that can cause T4 and T3 leaking out the gland.
  • Tumours of the testes or ovaries.
  • Benign tumours of the pituitary or thyroid gland.
  • A Large quantity of tetraiodothyronine that may be taken through medication or dietary supplements.
  • Hyperfunctioning of thyroid nodules can enhance the growth and activity of thyroid gland that results in too much hormone production. It can be a major cause of Hyperthyroidism.

What Are The Causes Of Osteoarthritis

  • Aging and obesity are the most common causes, though there are many more reasons that can cause OA.    

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 Common cold

  • The common cold is the infection causes in the upper-respiratory tract. It is caused by the attack of the viruses. It is a myth that not wearing enough cloth in winters or cold weather causes the cold. Some of the ways one can catch infections are as follows:
  • Exposure to the virus by touching any contaminated object like cell phone remote controls, laptops, etc. or any virus containing surface like door knobs, taps, etc.
  • Close contact with an infected person.
  • Using the personal belongings of a person suffering from the common cold like the towel, clothes, etc.
  • A mild infection may be caused in adults by three types of viruses responsible foe cold. However, in old people, children, and individuals with a weak immune system it can cause serious lower respiratory tract problem. Also, patients with heart and lung diseases, asthmatic patients, and premature babies are at a higher risk of getting the complications like pneumonia and bronchitis. 

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.

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

                 5. Air pollutants like smoke

                 6. Certain medications including beta blockers, aspirin, ibuprofen  and naproxen

                 7. Strong emotions, stress

                 8. Foods which contain Sulphites and preservatives

                 9. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Asthma is a combination of environmental and genetic factors, as many people live in same conditions. Still, some people get asthma and some don’t.

What Are The Causes Of Immunity building

Causes of reduced immunity can either be intrinsic/ hereditary or acquired.

Intrinsic or primary immunodeficiencies are inborn genetic errors. There are more than hundred different types and forms of primary immunodeficiency syndromes described. These include immunodeficiency syndromes such as selective IgA deficiency, DiGeorge syndrome and Ataxia Telangiectasia.

Secondary or acquired immunodeficiency states can be due to diseases or conditions such as:

Systemic disorders:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Malnutrition or being underweight
  • Auto-immune disorders

Medications or substances:

  • Long-term corticosteroid use
  • Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) used in auto-immune diseases like inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis. Chemotherapy or radiation.
  • Alcoholism

Physiological states:

  • Pregnancy is a normal physiological state of lowered immunity.
  • Ageing is also a natural process that causes lowered immunity.

What Are The Causes Of Obesity

  • The major reason that leads to over-weight or obesity is the imbalance between the calories consumed and the calories burnt. The intake of high energy foods and the sedentary lifestyles has led to the global widespread of obesity.    

What Are The Causes Of Hypothyroidism

Whenever the thyroid gland doesn’t produce sufficient hormones, the balance of the overall chemical reactions can be disturbed. Hypothyroidism is associated with a number of causes such as autoimmune disease, radiation therapy, treatment for hyperthyroidism, thyroid surgery, and other medications. The major causes of Hypothyroidism are as follows:

  • Autoimmune disease: People who are suffering from Hashimoto's thyroiditis (an inflammatory disorder) are mostly involved with Hypothyroidism. The autoimmune disorders can occur when our own immune system produces antibodies against our own tissues. Sometimes, this particular process attacks our thyroid gland. Although, scientists are not sure about the reason behind the autoimmune disease. Some think it as a triggering response of bacterium or virus while others think it is a genetic flaw. But, whatever it may be, these self-destructing antibodies affect the thyroid and prevent them in hormone production.
  • Treatment for hyperthyroidism: People, who are suffering from hyperthyroidism, are often treated with anti-thyroid medications or radioactive iodine in order to reduce and normalise the thyroid function. But, in some cases, the treatments of hyperthyroidism may result in permanent Hypothyroidism.
  • Thyroid surgery: If a patient is treated with removing of the whole or a large portion of the thyroid gland, then the hormone production can be diminished or stopped. In that case, that patient should take the external thyroid hormone for life.
  • Radiation therapy: Radiation used in the treatment of cancers associated with neck and head can affect the thyroid gland and may result in hypothyroidism.
  • Medications: A large number of medications can result in Hypothyroidism such as Lithium can develop hypothyroidism. So, before taking any medication, ask your doctor about its effect on your thyroid gland.
  • Congenital disease: Some babies can be born with no thyroid gland or a defective thyroid gland. In this case, the thyroid gland can’t develop normally for some unknown reasons and in some cases, it can be associated with some genetic disorder. The babies born with congenital hypothyroidism can appear normal during their birth, so thyroid screening of the newborn is very important.
  • Pituitary disorder: A rare cause of hypothyroidism may be the result of the failure of the pituitary gland in producing sufficient TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone). It can happen as a result of a benign tumour associated with the pituitary gland.
  • Pregnancy: Some women can develop hypothyroidism during or after the pregnancy. If it is left untreated, then it can be an unwanted cause of miscarriage, preeclampsia (rise of blood pressure during the pregnancy’s last three months), or premature delivery. It can also affect the development process of the foetus.
  • Iodine deficiency: The iodine mineral is crucial for thyroid hormone production. Iodine can be found in seafood, iodized salt, seaweed etc. So, iodine deficiency should be removed at any cost. But, keep in mind that too much iodine consumption can result in hyperthyroidism.
  • Anyone can develop hypothyroidism, but a woman older than 60 years, a person associated with autoimmune disease or a past family history of hypothyroidism, treated with anti-thyroid medications or radioactive iodine can develop Hypothyroidism more than the others.

Worst Foods With ZINCOVIT TABLETS

What Are The Worst Foods For Skin care

  • Reduce sugar intake.
  • Fast food, junk food.
  • Cow’s milk (Sometimes cow’s milk is taken from pregnant cows. It has increased levels of hormones, which in turn can cause acne). 

What Are The Worst Foods For Bone health

  • High-Sodium Foods: The more salt you eat, the more calcium you lose as salt causes excessive calcium excretion through the kidneys.
  • Sugary snacks, high sugar items
  • Soda, cola drinks as they lead to higher risk of hip bone fracture
  • Caffeine
  • Alchohol: Heavy and chronic consumption of alcohol may result in decreased bone formation, higher chances of bone fracture, low bone mass, and delay in fracture healing.
  • Legumes
  • Inflammatory foods

What Are The Worst Foods For Anaemia

  • Junk food.
  • Coffee, tea, red wine as these inhibit the absorption of iron.
  • White bread.
  • Sugar
  • Desserts

What Are The Worst Foods For Teeth health

  • Sugary sweets and candies: Sugary food is what bacteria thrive on. Even if you wish to have sweets, opt for those which leave no particles sticking to the teeth and clear out of the mouth quickly.
  • Starchy carbohydrates: Foods like chips, crackers, bread, and pasta contain starch which is available as sugar to the bacteria.
  • Carbonated soft drinks and sodas: Firstly, carbonated drinks again contain a lot of sugar. Secondly, they contain phosphorous and carbon dioxide which are known to wear away the enamel of the teeth. This causes them to get brown or stained.
  • Fruit juices: Though fruit juices are healthy, they contain sugar and acids which are a bad combination for teeth. If you regularly consume juices, don’t keep them for too long in the mouth. Use a straw for minimal contact with teeth.

What Are The Worst Foods For Hyperthyroidism

Patients who are suffering from Hyperthyroidism should avoid the following foods:

  • Gluten: Most of the thyroid problems are based on autoimmune disease. Gluten encourages the autoimmune disease; moreover, it can cause inflammation in the body. Rye, spelt, barley, Kamut and several other processed foods are rich sources of Gluten.
  • Dairy products: Dairy products are sources of inflammation in the body. The protein casein is found in dairy products and it can make the autoimmune disease more complicated. Patients suffering from Hyperthyroidism should avoid cow’s milk, cheese, ice-cream, and yoghurt.
  • Sugar: Sugar increases inflammation and worsens the autoimmune diseases. Sugar helps in enhancing the harmful pathogens in the digestive system and encourages gut infections. It can cause “leaky gut syndrome” and it can act as a driver of all autoimmune diseases.
  • A large amount of raw cruciferous vegetables: Patients suffering from Hyperthyroidism should not consume cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts in a raw form.
  • Industrial seed oils: Different vegetable oils such as sunflower, corn, safflower, cottonseed, soybean, grape seed, and rice bran oil. The extraction process in the mentioned oils damages and oxidises the essential polyunsaturated fats. These damaged fats can create a great amount of inflammation in the body. They can increase free radicals and damage tissues. So, consumption of healthy fat is necessary such as olive oil, avocado oil, macadamia nut oil, raw seeds and nuts, avocados, oily fish, pastured butter and ghee, and coconut oil.
  • Soy: Soy is rich in lectins that can cause irritation in gut lining and make leaky gut syndrome more complicated in people suffering from autoimmune disease.

What Are The Worst Foods For Common cold

Some of the foods to cut down to curb common cold and its symptoms are as follows:

  • Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages: Immunity of one’s body gets weakened by alcohol, also body experiences dehydration. Such conditions make one even more vulnerable to common cold. So, one should not consume alcohol, especially in a hefty amount to prevent the common cold. Some of the beverages to avoid are beer, wine, tequila, vodka, and whiskey.
  • Dairy Products: The Dairy product should be cut down during the common cold, as consuming dairy items may worsen the mucus formation. Excessive mucus causes the common cold to irritate even more. Some of the dairy products that one should avoid completely are milkshakes, cold coffee, milk ice creams, butter, cheese, yoghurt, cream, pudding, and other milk desserts.
  • Packed Juices: When one is suffering from the common cold he/she must stay away from packed fruit juices as they consist of high amount of added sugar. Sugar decreases the efficiency of WBC to fight against infections. The Vitamin C benefits from the packed juice are cancelled by excessive sugar present in them.

What Are The Symptoms Of Hypothyroidism

The signs and symptoms associated with hypothyroidism may vary from person to person based on the severity of thyroid hormones deficiency. But, an individual may develop the symptoms slowly even about in a number of years. Firstly, you can notice some common symptoms such as weight gain or fatigue and slowly, your metabolism will be continued to slow down. You will also develop more common symptoms. Some of the hypothyroidism signs and symptoms are as follows:

  • Feeling tired: You can be associated with fatigue syndrome such as feeling tired, lethargy, inability to exercise, feeling cold, and weakness.

Causes of diseases where ZINCOVIT TABLETS is used

What Are The Causes Of Anaemia

  • Deficiency of nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamin B 12, sickle cell anemia (a genetic blood disorder) or kidney disease can be amongst few causes of anemia.
  • The type of food you eat also affects the absorption of iron and folic acid.

What Are The Causes Of Teeth health

Dental diseases are caused by microorganisms that live in the mouth and release toxins causing damage to dental tissue. The mouth offers resources for the bacteria to survive and multiply. There are three types of bacteria thriving in the oral cavity - pathogenic, beneficial, and neutral. When the mouth is dominated by beneficial bacteria, then there is good dental health. When pathogenic bacteria dominate the oral cavity, it leads to dental diseases. Neutral bacteria follow whichever bacteria are dominant.

Causes of tooth and gum diseases are:

  • Sugary foods: When bacteria in the mouth combine with remnants of sugary or starchy food particles, they form a colourless, sticky substance called plaque. When you don’t remove plaque from mouth by proper brushing and flossing, it hardens into tartar or calculus. Removal of tartar will require a dental procedure by a dentist.
  • Acidic foods: Acidic drinks and foods attack the tooth enamel, thereby damaging it.  Soft drinks contain enormous amounts of sugar, which facilitate plaque formation. The acidic content of soft drinks erodes teeth enamel and causes damage to teeth.
  • Dry mouth: Saliva in the mouth is helpful in inhibiting plaque formation. People with dry mouth are more prone to dental problems. Dry mouth condition is caused by certain medications. Diseases like diabetes also cause dry mouth issues.
  • Grinding of teeth: People who grind teeth in their sleep or under stress are invariably damaging their teeth. The grinding process strips away the enamel (outer layer of teeth), thereby causing tooth decay.
  • Genetics: Some people inherit tooth crevices and enamel problems from parents. This can also lead to teeth problems.
  • Poor dental hygiene: Improper brushing and flossing is the number one cause of teeth problems.

What Are The Causes Of Hyperthyroidism

In most of the cases, Hyperthyroidism can be a result of Graves’ disease- an autoimmune disorder. In this case, antibodies produced for body immunity can stimulate the thyroid gland encouraging it to produce too much T4, T3, or both hormones. According to doctors, Graves’ disease may be genetic, and it is most commonly found among young women.

Other causes of Hyperthyroidism may be as follows:

  • Excess iodine that is a key ingredient of T4 and T3.
  • Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) that can cause T4 and T3 leaking out the gland.
  • Tumours of the testes or ovaries.
  • Benign tumours of the pituitary or thyroid gland.
  • A Large quantity of tetraiodothyronine that may be taken through medication or dietary supplements.
  • Hyperfunctioning of thyroid nodules can enhance the growth and activity of thyroid gland that results in too much hormone production. It can be a major cause of Hyperthyroidism.

What Are The Causes Of Osteoarthritis

  • Aging and obesity are the most common causes, though there are many more reasons that can cause OA.    

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 Common cold

  • The common cold is the infection causes in the upper-respiratory tract. It is caused by the attack of the viruses. It is a myth that not wearing enough cloth in winters or cold weather causes the cold. Some of the ways one can catch infections are as follows:
  • Exposure to the virus by touching any contaminated object like cell phone remote controls, laptops, etc. or any virus containing surface like door knobs, taps, etc.
  • Close contact with an infected person.
  • Using the personal belongings of a person suffering from the common cold like the towel, clothes, etc.
  • A mild infection may be caused in adults by three types of viruses responsible foe cold. However, in old people, children, and individuals with a weak immune system it can cause serious lower respiratory tract problem. Also, patients with heart and lung diseases, asthmatic patients, and premature babies are at a higher risk of getting the complications like pneumonia and bronchitis. 

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.

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

                 5. Air pollutants like smoke

                 6. Certain medications including beta blockers, aspirin, ibuprofen  and naproxen

                 7. Strong emotions, stress

                 8. Foods which contain Sulphites and preservatives

                 9. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Asthma is a combination of environmental and genetic factors, as many people live in same conditions. Still, some people get asthma and some don’t.

What Are The Causes Of Immunity building

Causes of reduced immunity can either be intrinsic/ hereditary or acquired.

Intrinsic or primary immunodeficiencies are inborn genetic errors. There are more than hundred different types and forms of primary immunodeficiency syndromes described. These include immunodeficiency syndromes such as selective IgA deficiency, DiGeorge syndrome and Ataxia Telangiectasia.

Secondary or acquired immunodeficiency states can be due to diseases or conditions such as:

Systemic disorders:

  • HIV/AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Malnutrition or being underweight
  • Auto-immune disorders

Medications or substances:

  • Long-term corticosteroid use
  • Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) used in auto-immune diseases like inflammatory bowel disease or rheumatoid arthritis. Chemotherapy or radiation.
  • Alcoholism

Physiological states:

  • Pregnancy is a normal physiological state of lowered immunity.
  • Ageing is also a natural process that causes lowered immunity.

What Are The Causes Of Obesity

  • The major reason that leads to over-weight or obesity is the imbalance between the calories consumed and the calories burnt. The intake of high energy foods and the sedentary lifestyles has led to the global widespread of obesity.    

What Are The Causes Of Hypothyroidism

Whenever the thyroid gland doesn’t produce sufficient hormones, the balance of the overall chemical reactions can be disturbed. Hypothyroidism is associated with a number of causes such as autoimmune disease, radiation therapy, treatment for hyperthyroidism, thyroid surgery, and other medications. The major causes of Hypothyroidism are as follows:

  • Autoimmune disease: People who are suffering from Hashimoto's thyroiditis (an inflammatory disorder) are mostly involved with Hypothyroidism. The autoimmune disorders can occur when our own immune system produces antibodies against our own tissues. Sometimes, this particular process attacks our thyroid gland. Although, scientists are not sure about the reason behind the autoimmune disease. Some think it as a triggering response of bacterium or virus while others think it is a genetic flaw. But, whatever it may be, these self-destructing antibodies affect the thyroid and prevent them in hormone production.
  • Treatment for hyperthyroidism: People, who are suffering from hyperthyroidism, are often treated with anti-thyroid medications or radioactive iodine in order to reduce and normalise the thyroid function. But, in some cases, the treatments of hyperthyroidism may result in permanent Hypothyroidism.
  • Thyroid surgery: If a patient is treated with removing of the whole or a large portion of the thyroid gland, then the hormone production can be diminished or stopped. In that case, that patient should take the external thyroid hormone for life.
  • Radiation therapy: Radiation used in the treatment of cancers associated with neck and head can affect the thyroid gland and may result in hypothyroidism.
  • Medications: A large number of medications can result in Hypothyroidism such as Lithium can develop hypothyroidism. So, before taking any medication, ask your doctor about its effect on your thyroid gland.
  • Congenital disease: Some babies can be born with no thyroid gland or a defective thyroid gland. In this case, the thyroid gland can’t develop normally for some unknown reasons and in some cases, it can be associated with some genetic disorder. The babies born with congenital hypothyroidism can appear normal during their birth, so thyroid screening of the newborn is very important.
  • Pituitary disorder: A rare cause of hypothyroidism may be the result of the failure of the pituitary gland in producing sufficient TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone). It can happen as a result of a benign tumour associated with the pituitary gland.
  • Pregnancy: Some women can develop hypothyroidism during or after the pregnancy. If it is left untreated, then it can be an unwanted cause of miscarriage, preeclampsia (rise of blood pressure during the pregnancy’s last three months), or premature delivery. It can also affect the development process of the foetus.
  • Iodine deficiency: The iodine mineral is crucial for thyroid hormone production. Iodine can be found in seafood, iodized salt, seaweed etc. So, iodine deficiency should be removed at any cost. But, keep in mind that too much iodine consumption can result in hyperthyroidism.
  • Anyone can develop hypothyroidism, but a woman older than 60 years, a person associated with autoimmune disease or a past family history of hypothyroidism, treated with anti-thyroid medications or radioactive iodine can develop Hypothyroidism more than the others.
