clip How to diagnose Meningitis
May 25, 2018, 05:14:16 AM by abejoye



When you are having all the symptoms above and your doctor suspects you have meningitis, In most cases, your doctor will perform a lumbar puncture or spinal tap. A spinal tap, which extracts cerebrospinal fluid from your spine, is the only definitive way to diagnosis meningitis. Spinal fluid is made by the brain and surrounds the brain and spinal cord to protect it. Your spinal fluid will have high protein levels and an increased white blood cell count if you have meningitis. This fluid can also help your doctor determine whether bacteria, viruses, or other infectious agents are causing the meningitis.
Your doctor may also order additional tests to determine the specific virus that caused the aseptic meningitis. These tests can include blood tests or imaging tests, such as X-rays and CT scans.

How to Prevent Meningitis

Antibiotics can be given to help prevent meningitis
Antibiotics can be given to help prevent meningitis this is because bacterial meningitis can be life-threatening, standard meningitis treatment involves delivering the antibiotics intravenously, through a vein. According to Nigrovic “IV [intravenous] antibiotics will ensure that high levels of the medicine will get into the central nervous system where the infection really exists,”
 Antibiotics are typically given three times a day for 7 to 21 days, depending on the type of bacteria organism causing the meningitis and the type of antibiotic chosen. Patients are often in an intensive care unit of a hospital during meningitis treatment so that they can be watched carefully to be sure the antibiotic treatment is effective.
Avoid close contact with someone who has meningitis
Try to avoid any contact with fluid secrets from the victim’s mouth and nose (for example, kissing, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, sharing drinks or utensils)
Get vaccinated
Getting vaccinated against meningitis is considered as the most popular and effective way to prevent the disease.
There are two main types of vaccines that are commonly used to protect you from meningitis. It is recommended that you should take a vaccine at age 11 or 12 and then have the second one when you are 16 or 18 years old. The reason for this is that people have more risk of getting meningitis between the ages of 16 and 21. If you plan to enter into the military or go traveling or migrate to another country in which meningitis is a common disease then take a vaccine is highly recommended.
In addition, getting vaccines that prevent some common diseases like measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox is also very useful because they can protect you from these disease as well as viral meningitis.
Don't Share Personal Items

Meningitis can be contracted when you come in contact with respiratory or throat secretions — saliva, sputum, nasal mucus — of someone who is infected, either through kissing or sharing personal items. You can prevent the spread of meningitis by not sharing items where secretions can lurk, such as drinking glasses, water bottles, straws, silverware, toothbrushes, lipsticks or lip glosses, and cigarettes.

Strengthen your immune system
In addition to protect yourself from outside factors, it is very important to protect from inside by strengthening your immune system.
If unfortunately you get exposure to factors that can cause meningitis, a good and healthy immune system will help in the situations like this. It works to fight against these factors and protect you from viruses and bacteria. Eating healthy is very necessary for a system to work effectively. So, remember to create for your own and family members a healthy diet with fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Also, combine healthy eating with regular exercise and sleeping enough will bring more good results.

Take some supplements.

Vitamins like A, C, E and D are very helpful in maintaining good health and decreasing the possibility of developing inflammation around the brain and spinal cord. The B family of vitamins supports the immune system as well as the nervous system, making it even harder for meningitis to develop. Don't forget fish oils and other sources of fatty acids that help decrease inflammation in general and serve as food for the immune system.

Pulmonary Tuberculosis
 Pulmonary Tuberculosis is an infectious disease which usually affects the lungs caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Infectious means that you can get it from other people or give it to other people.  TB can also develop in other parts of the body as extrapulmonary tuberculosis. TB is spread by aerosols from people with active Pulmonary TB when they cough, sneeze, speak, or spit. People nearby may breath in the bacteria and if they have a weak immune system, become infected.
 
 Tuberculosis infection or inactive TB means that a person has TB bacteria but his body has been successful in fighting the bacteria, preventing it from causing illness.   People with Tuberculosis infection do not feel sick, do not have symptoms and cannot spread TB germs.
 
 Tuberculosis disease or active TB means that a person has TB bacteria but his body has been unsuccessful in fighting the bacteria. People with active TB feel sick, have symptoms and can spread TB germs.

KEY FACTS ABOUT TUBERCULOSIS (TB)
 Tuberculosis is a disease caused by infection with the bacteria, mycobacterium. About nine million people develop TB disease annually, according to a recent W.H.O. Report.
 
TB usually affects the lungs and other parts of the body. It is spread mostly through coughing or sneezing. A very likely place to contact the disease is a crowded environment with inadequate ventilation. If you have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with TB you need to carry out a TB test.
 
 People who have latent TB infection but do not have the TB disease do not show symptoms but can spread the disease to other people. Such people have a positive reaction to the tuberculin skin test.
xx Info about gastroenteritis
August 27, 2017, 03:44:44 AM by Isaac Adeniran
Info about gastroenteritis

It is an intestinal infection marked by watery diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, nausea or vomiting, and sometimes fever.

The most common way to develop viral gastroenteritis — often called stomach flu — is through contact with an infected person or by ingesting contaminated food or water. If you’re otherwise healthy, you’ll likely recover without complications. But for infants, older adults and people with compromised immune systems, viral gastroenteritis can be deadly.

There’s no effective treatment for viral gastroenteritis, so prevention is key. In addition to avoiding food and water that may be contaminated, thorough and frequent hand-washings are your best defense.

xx Why your kidney deserve the best care
February 19, 2017, 07:08:26 AM by Isaac Adeniran
The rate at which young people are suffering from Kidney disease is alarming.We recently lost a dear brother to this condition.I am sharing a post which can help us.Please read below:

🚫IMPORTANT 🚫                 
KIDNEY DESERVES THE BEST
Barely two (2) days ago, we all received the news of the demise of
the Nigerian actor as a result of kidney disease. ALSO OUR MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS, the Honorable Teko Lake is currently in the Hospital on life support with Kidney problems. I want to
show you how to avert this menace of kidney disease. SO HERE ARE THE TOP 6 CAUSE OF
KIDNEY DISEASE:
1. Delaying going to a toilet Keeping your urine in your bladder for
too long is a bad idea. A full bladder can cause bladder damage.
The urine that stays in the bladder multiplies bacteria quickly.
Once the urine refluxes back to the ureter and kidneys, the toxic
substances can result in kidney infections, then urinary tract
infections, and then nephritis, and even uremia. When nature calls
– do it as soon as possible.
2. Eating too much salt,You should eat no more than 5.8 grams of
salt daily.
3. Eating too much meat. Too much protein in your diet is harmful
for your kidneys. Protein digestion produces ammonia – a toxin
that is very destructive to your kidneys. More meat equals more
kidney damage.
4. Drinking too much caffeine Caffeine is a component of many
sodas and soft drinks. It raises your blood pressure and your
kidneys start suffering. So you should cut down the amount of
coke you drink daily.
xx How to Recognize Mood Disorders and Treat Them

How to Recognize Mood Disorders and Treat Them

If your emotions and moods seem out of your control over a long period of time, you may have a mood disorder. There are several different types, and all of them can be treated.

Bipolar Disorder
This causes extreme mood swings, from depression to emotional highs called mania. During the highs, you have more energy and your thoughts may come quickly -- you may be unusually talkative. You might get a lot of things done, but also might behave in unpredictable, unhealthy ways. These mood shifts can happen only a few times a year or as often as several times a week.

Treatment
You may need to see a psychiatrist, who can prescribe medication, along with a psychologist, who focuses on talk therapy to help you deal with problems at work or family tension. Antidepressants, antipsychotics, anti-anxiety medications, and mood stabilizers can treat bipolar disorder. In severe cases, electroconvulsive therapy -- when electric current is passed through your brain -- helps some people.

TREATMENTS FOR VISIONCLEAR (a.k.a Eye beta)

Cataracts - cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half have a cataract or have had cataract surgery.

Myopia - Nearsightedness, or myopia, as it is medically termed, is a vision condition in which close objects are seen clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred. Nearsightedness occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye, has too much curvature. As a result, the light entering the eye isn’t focused correctly and distant objects look blurred.

Glaucoma - is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. It's often associated with a buildup of pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life.

The increased pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to the brain. If damage to the optic nerve from high eye pressure continues, glaucoma will cause permanent loss of vision. Without treatment, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years.

Diabetic Retinopathy- Diabetic retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease and a leading cause of blindness in American adults. It is caused by changes in the blood vessels of the retina.

In some people with diabetic retinopathy, blood vessels may swell and leak fluid. In other people, abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. A healthy retina is necessary for good vision.

If you have diabetic retinopathy, at first you may not notice changes to your vision. But over time, diabetic retinopathy can get worse and cause vision loss. Diabetic retinopathy usually affects both eyes.
