Headaches in children

Headaches in children

Headaches are quite common in children and are usually not serious. Although the symptoms of adults and children may be different, but children could develop migraines, chronic daily headaches or stress-related (tension) headaches just like adults. Sometimes, headaches in children could be due to minor head trauma, an infection or high levels of stress or anxiety. So, parents should pay attention to their child's headache symptoms ... more

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication resulting from damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina). This condition may initially cause no symptoms or only mild vision problems, but it can eventually result in blindness. Anyone who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes may develop diabetic retinopathy. Additionally, the longer a person has diabetes, the more likely they are to develop diabetic ... more

Collagenous Colitis, Lymphocytic Colitis

Collagenous Colitis, Lymphocytic Colitis

Collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis are inflammatory conditions of the colon that result in chronic, non-bloody, watery diarrhea. Some researchers consider collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis are different phases of the same condition rather than separate conditions. Since the diagnosis of this condition is confirmed by microscopic examination, both collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis are occasionally referred to ... more

Patent Foramen Ovale

Patent Foramen Ovale

The patent foramen ovale is a small, flap-like opening, present in normal fetal growth between the right and left upper chambers of the heart (right atrium and left atrium). This opening often closes within the first or second year of the baby’s life. However, in at least one out of four people, it stays open for the patient’s whole life. The foramen ovale referred to as patent foramen ovale (PFO), might allow blood to flow from ... more

A contagious viral infection best known by its distinctive red rash, which was once also called German measles or three-day measles, is called rubella.

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.
