Being a common problem, heart arrhythmias are usually harmless. Although most people have only occasional irregular heartbeats that feel like a fluttering or racing heart, however, some heart arrhythmias could end up ... more

Carotid artery disease

Carotid artery disease

The pair of blood vessels that deliver blood to the brain and head are called carotid arteries. When fatty deposits called plaques clog the carotid arteries, carotid artery disease occurs. A person’s risk of stroke is increased and the blood supply to the brain is blocked by the buildup of plaques in these arteries.   The first outward clue that one has the condition may be a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), which ... more

Bunions

Bunions

The abnormal bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe is called a bunion. In this condition, the big toe is forced to crowd against the other toes because its joint becomes enlarged.

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

The Lancet, 380/9838 Published: 2012-07-21

Strong evidence shows that physical inactivity increases the risk of many adverse health conditions, including major non-communicable diseases such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers, and shortens life expectancy. Because much of the world's population is inactive, this link presents a major public health issue

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource

The Lancet, doi:10.1016 Published: 2012-07-23

The emergence and spread of high levels of HIV-1 drug resistance in resource-limited settings where combination antiretroviral treatment has been scaled up could compromise the effectiveness of national HIV treatment programmes. We aimed to estimate changes in the prevalence of HIV-1 drug resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV since initiation of rollout in resource-limited settings.
