Diabetes

The group of diseases that affect the way a person’s body uses blood glucose (blood sugar) is called “diabetes mellitus”.

Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial Cancer

Usually, endometrial cancer is found at its earliest and most treatable stage. Endometrial cancer begins in the cells of the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus. The uterus is a hollow pelvic organ shaped like a pear, where fetal development occurs. Although this type of cancer is also called uterine cancer, however, there are other cells in the uterus that can become cancerous, including muscle or myometrial cells. These form less ... more

Colic

Colic

Colic is usually defined as crying more than three hours a day, three days a week for more than three weeks in an otherwise well-fed, healthy baby. When a baby seems to cry simultaneously each day and nothing seems to be providing comfort, they might have colic. Colic can be distressing for both a person and their baby. Fortunately, colic is relatively short-lived. The colic will end in a matter of weeks or months, and the parent will have ... more

Hives and Angioedema

Hives and Angioedema

Also known as urticaria, hives are raised, red and itchy welts (swellings or wheals) of various sizes, which seem to appear and disappear on the skin. Angioedema, which is a type of swelling, causes large welts deeper in the skin, particularly near the lips and eyes.

Staph infections

Staph infections

The staphylococcus bacteria, which is a type of germ usually found on the skin or in the nose of even healthy individuals, causes staph infections. In most cases, these bacteria either cause minor skin infections, or they don't cause any problems at all. In some cases, instead of remaining skin-deep, staph infections may invade the lungs, heart, urinary tract or bloodstream. Usually, people who have a chronic illness or weakened ... more

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.
