It’s almost monsoon time! The sweet aroma of the earth, the little drops on the windows, the pounding rain, and the possibility of falling in love with the season. It has the power to add beauty to nature.  The environment is colorful, vibrant, and exquisite.

However, it can potentially seriously damage your immune system. This is due to the fact that the rainy, humid weather creates the ideal environment for the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mosquito nests. Enhancing immunity and avoiding illnesses brought on by the monsoon, such as colds, the flu, rashes, fever, or general weakness, requires prevention. 

Deadly diseases including Typhoid, Dengue, Chikungunya, and Malaria are common during the rainy season. They almost all share a few symptoms in common, such fever, weakness, and bodily pains. Additionally, the monsoon season may affect your metabolism, increasing your risk of bloating and indigestion. Therefore, it’s critical to be informed about and take precautions against common monsoon infections.

WHO estimates that at least 2 billion people consume polluted water, which results in an estimated 4.8 million deaths from diarrheal disease each year. Children are the easiest victims because of their growing immune systems. It has been reported that access to safe drinking water might save 2.9 lac deaths in children under the age of five per year.

Common Monsoon Diseases

During the monsoon, your chances of contracting various viruses, germs, and other diseases are two times higher than during any other season, resulting in the spread of a variety of diseases

Monsoon diseases can be differentiated based on how they spread:

  • Air Borne Diseases: Common cold, flu type illness
  • Water and Food Borne Diseases: Typhoid, cholera, hepatitis-A, gastroenteritis, and leptospirosis
  • Mosquito Borne Diseases: Malaria, dengue and Chikungunya

Some of the most common monsoon diseases include:

Cold and Flu 

The drastic fluctuation of temperature which happens during this rainy season makes the body susceptible to bacterial and viral attacks, resulting in cold and flu. 

Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya

In recent years, several illnesses spread by mosquitoes have caused damage. These diseases spread like an epidemic each year as a result of rising garbage piles and pollution levels, and many people become victims of them. High temperature and chills are among the symptoms, along with headache, nausea, and excruciating joint pain.

Diarrhoea

It is a serious bowel condition that develops as a result of eating contaminated food. During the monsoon, humidity levels are high and germs are more likely to proliferate. Even while we all like eating roadside fast food during this time of year, we are actually putting ourselves at risk for dangerous illnesses like food poisoning and diarrhoea.

Typhoid 

Typhoid may be the cause of your symptoms if you experience them during the monsoon season, including weakness, a sore throat, soreness, headaches, and a high temperature. Salmonella typhi bacteria are the reason behind typhoid. A person is susceptible to typhoid when he or she consumes water or food from an unclean source.

Jaundice 

If you are consuming contaminated food and water during the monsoon season, you are exposing your body to a severe monsoon disease called jaundice. Liver dysfunction, yellowness in eyes, weakness, vomiting, and yellow urine are the common symptoms of jaundice.

Fungal Infections

Fungal infections of the skin are quite common in monsoon season. Increasing humidity and increased sweating can cause the fungal organisms to thrive in damp areas of skin like armpits, underneath the breasts, groins, between the toes and so on. Symptoms include rash and itching. It is diagnosed clinically and treatment is by using anti-fungal ointments.

In case of illness

If you fall ill, immediately consult your doctor. Do not start any antibiotics on your own, not even as a preventive measure. Unnecessary antibiotics may make the diagnosis and further treatment difficult. There are serious illnesses during this season like leptospirosis, influenza and dengue. All of them can have a wide variation from mild to severe, and it is best to be diagnosed by a doctor. 

Vaccination

Children are more prone to respiratory diseases when the rainy season begins. Children under five are particularly susceptible to influenza. People over 65 and those with co-morbid diseases like asthma or heart disease are especially negatively affected. The flu shot is seen as essential step for stopping the disease’s transmission among family members and in the neighbourhood.

How to stay safe from Monsoon Diseases

  • Use mosquito nets/ mosquito repellents.
  • Don’t allow water to stagnate or collect.
  • Maintain good hygiene and keep the bathrooms clean.
  • Keep yourself well hydrated – ensure to drink boiled water.
  • Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before consumption.
  • Increase Vitamin C intake.
  • Avoid the consumption of street food.
  • Ensure open drains and potholes in the locality are covered.
  • Covering the mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing.
  • Isolate yourself when infected.
  • Ensuring homes are well- ventilated at all times.
  • Wear full-sleeved clothes to protect your skin.
  • Eat a balanced diet to keep the immune system strong.

“SAFER MONSOON AND BETTER HEALTH”

Introduction

An infection with the monkeypox virus results in the uncommon illness known as monkeypox. The virus that causes monkeypox and the variola virus, which causes smallpox, are both members of the same viral family. The symptoms of smallpox are similar to those of monkeypox, though smaller and less dangerous. Monkey pox and chicken pox are unrelated.

Two outbreaks of a disease resembling the pox happened in colonies of monkeys held for research in 1958. Despite its moniker, monkeypox has an unknown origin. However, the virus may also infect people when it is carried by non-human primates (such monkeys) and African rodents.

The first instance of monkeypox in a human was documented in 1970. Before the outbreak in 2022, instances of monkeypox were reported in a number of central and western African nations. Prior to recently, almost all cases of monkeypox in people outside of Africa were associated with either imported animals or international travel to countries where the disease frequently occurs. These incidents have place across several continents.

Monkeypox Symptoms

Monkeypox symptoms are similar to smallpox symptoms, but milder.

Symptoms of monkeypox can include:

  1. Fever
  2. Headache
  3. Muscle aches and backache
  4. Swollen lymph nodes
  5. Chills
  6. Exhaustion
  7. a rash that can resemble pimples or blisters and that can form on the face, the inside of the mouth, the hands, feet, chest, genitals, or the anus.

The rash goes through various stages before fully healing. Usually, the disease lasts two to four weeks. Sometimes the first symptom to show is a rash, then the others. Some people merely get a rash.

Also Read: Hepatitis B : Overview, Symptoms & Prevention

How it Spreads

Monkeypox spreads in different ways. It can be spread through:

  1. Contact with the infectious rash, scabs, or body fluids
  2. The respiratory secretions increase during extended face-to-face contact or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, snuggling, or intercourse.
  3. Items (such as clothing or linens) that have previously been in contact with an infectious rash or body fluids
  4. The placenta can spread the virus to the fetus during pregnancy

Monkeypox can also be contracted from infected animals, either by being scratched or bitten by them or by preparing or eating meat or using products from them.

From the moment that symptoms appear until the rash has completely healed and a new layer of skin has grown, monkeypox might spread. Usually, the disease lasts two to four weeks. Monkeypox cannot be transmitted by people who don’t have any symptoms. Whether monkeypox can transmit by semen or vaginal fluids is unknown at this time.

Prevention

Prevention Steps

Take the following steps to prevent getting monkeypox:

  1. Avoid close, skin-to-skin contact with people who have a rash that looks like monkeypox.
    1. Do not touch the rash or scabs of a person with monkeypox.
    2. Do not kiss, hug, cuddle or have sex with someone with monkeypox.
    3. Do not share eating utensils or cups with a person with monkeypox.

2. Do not handle or touch the bedding, towels, or clothing of a person with monkeypox.

3. Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

4. Avoid contact with animals that can spread monkeypox virus, usually rodents and primates. Also, avoid sick or dead animals, as well as bedding or other materials they have touched.

If you are sick with monkeypox:

  1. Isolate at home
  2. If you have an active rash or other symptoms, stay in a separate room or area away from people or pets you live with, when possible.

Vaccination

Vaccination is usually recommended for people that are exposed to monkeypox and other people who are at higher risk of being exposed to monkeypox, including:

  1. People who have been identified by public health officials as a contact of someone with monkeypox
  2. People who may have been exposed to monkeypox, such as:
    1. People who are aware that one of their sexual partners in the past 2 weeks has been diagnosed with monkeypox
    2. People who had multiple sexual partners in the past 2 weeks in an area with known  monkeypox virus

        3. People whose jobs may expose them to orthopoxviruses, such as:

A. Laboratory workers who perform testing for orthopoxviruses

B. Laboratory workers who handle cultures or animals with orthopoxviruses

C. Some designated healthcare or public health workers

Note: Vaccines created to fight against smallpox viruses could also be wont to prevent infections from monkeypox thanks to the genetic similarity between smallpox and monkeypox viruses.

Is Monkeypox deadly?

The West African strain of the monkeypox virus, which was found during this outbreak, seldom ends up in fatal infections.

Over 99% of individuals who get this manner of the disease are likely to survive. 

However, those with weakened immune systems, children under the age of 8, people with a history of eczema, and pregnant or nursing women could also be more vulnerable to dying or being very ill.

Even while the West African variant is never fatal, the symptoms is brutally painful, and people who are tormented by the rash may have permanent scarring.

Overview

Hepatitis B is a viral infection that affects the liver and can cause acute and chronic diseases.  The virus is most frequently passed from mother to child during childbirth and delivery, through intercourse with an infected partner, by contact with blood or other bodily fluids during injections, or through exposure to sharp instruments.

In 2019, WHO estimates that 296 million people had chronic Hepatitis B infection, with 1.5 million new infections each year. Hepatitis B can be prevented by vaccines that are safe, effective, and readily available.

There is a safe and effective vaccine that offers 98% to 100% protection against Hepatitis B. 

Hepatitis B is most frequently transmitted horizontally (through exposure to infected blood) or from mother to child at birth in places with high endemicity, particularly during the first five years of life when infected children are most likely to infect uninfected children. Infants exposed to maternal infection or those under the age of five are more likely to acquire chronic infection.

Also Read : DIET : HOW CAN IT HELP MANAGE CHOLESTEROL LEVELS?

Hepatitis B can also be spread through needlestick injuries, tattooing, piercings, and exposure to infected blood and body fluids, such as saliva and menstrual, vaginal, and seminal fluids. The virus can also be transmitted through the reuse of contaminated needles and syringes or sharp objects in health care settings, in the community, or among people who inject drugs. Sexual transmission is more prevalent in unvaccinated people with multiple sexual partners.

Infection with hepatitis B acquired in adulthood leads to chronic hepatitis in less than 5% of cases, whereas infection in infancy and early childhood leads to chronic hepatitis in about 95% of cases. Vaccination of infants and children should be strengthened and prioritized based on this.

Hepatitis B can survive outside the body for at least 7 days. During this time, it can still cause infection.

Symptoms of Hepatitis B Infection

When newly infected, most people do not experience any symptoms. Some people, however, experience acute illness with symptoms lasting several weeks, including yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), dark urine, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The acute liver failure caused by hepatitis can be fatal. One of the long-term complications of HBV infection is the development of advanced liver diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, which are associated with high morbidity and mortality.

Clinically, it is impossible to distinguish Hepatitis B from hepatitis caused by other viral agents, so laboratory confirmation of the diagnosis is essential. 

The regions with the highest HBsAg prevalence include the Amazon basin, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia. To detect the chronic HBV infection, a quick and reasonably priced test is commonly accessible. Before symptoms appear, the test enables doctors to confirm a diagnosis and provide a secure and efficient course of treatment. For everyone at high risk, Hepatitis B surface antigen screening is advised. (These broadly include individuals from regions with a high incidence of chronic infection, individuals at high risk of contracting HBV infection, those with elevated risk of transferring HBV, and individuals at risk for HBV reactivation.)

Prevention

WHO recommends that all infants receive the Hepatitis B vaccine as soon as possible after birth, preferably within 24 hours, followed by two or three doses of Hepatitis B vaccine at least four weeks apart to complete the vaccination series. The protection lasts at least 20 years and is probably lifelong.  “Bringing hepatitis care closer to you”- WHO theme for world hepatitis day 2022

Before starting how to manage cholesterol level with diet, let’s understand some important things.

Globally, cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death. The development of cardiovascular disease is significantly influenced by elevated cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) and altered lipid profiles (dyslipidemia). To maintain cholesterol levels, one must maintain a healthy weight, drink alcohol in moderation, and not smoke. Changing dietary habits is a significant shift that must be made in addition to these other things.. 

Low cholesterol diets contain foods that can help lower cholesterol levels.

Your blood fats can improve and your cholesterol can be reduced by changing the things you eat. The best strategy to attain a low cholesterol diet is to include foods that reduce LDL, the dangerous cholesterol-carrying particle that contributes to artery-clogging atherosclerosis.

Before we talk about common food allergies in kids. Let’s first understand what allergies are. Allergic reactions are adverse immune responses to substances, or allergens, that are generally safe to most individuals. The symptoms it produces can be mildly bothersome or even potentially fatal. Some foods, dust, plant pollen, and medications are typical allergies.

Book Allergy Test

When an allergic child is exposed to that allergen, their immune system wrongly interprets it as a threat to their health. It overreacts, viewing the material as an intruder that has to be driven away. Immune system produces immunoglobulin E antibodies to defend the body (IgE). In order to protect against the allergen “invader,” these trigger specific cells to release chemicals into the bloodstream, including histamine.

Also Read: How to boost your immune system

Allergies are triggered by the release of these substances. The lungs, skin, eyes, nose, throat, gastrointestinal tract, and lungs can all be impacted by reactions. This allergic reaction will return if that allergen is exposed again in the future.

Allergy symptoms can be controlled, but there is no known treatment. Keeping away from the allergens is the best method to deal with them. The allergy itself, as well as the potential effects of ingesting or coming into touch with the allergen, should be frequently discussed with children by their parents.

Inform every person who will be looking after your child, including the childcare staff, teachers, family members, and the parents of his or her friends.

Doctors may recommend medications such as antihistamines, eye drops, and nasal sprays if avoiding environmental allergens isn’t possible or doesn’t work. (Many also come without a doctor’s prescription.)

Doctors may advise allergy shots (immunotherapy) to assist a patient get desensitised to an allergen. However, they are only beneficial for allergens including dust, mould, pollen, animals, and insect. 

Every child is unique, and each allergy calls for a particular course of action that is best for your child. Most of the time, it’s preferable to speak with a medical professional who can assess your child’s immune system and suggest improvements that will help them better combat allergies.

Introduction

Every year on April 7, in commemoration of World Health Day, a global health awareness day is held. The World Health Organization (WHO) selects a theme for World Health Day each year to raise public awareness, and the theme for World Health Day 2022 is “Our Planet, Our Health.” Every year on World Health Day, we are reminded that health is the most valuable present we can give to one another. The globe has been dealing with a COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, which has taught us that health is indeed wealth.

Importance of Good Health

Health is the polar opposite of disease, implying that the body is protected from social, physical, and mental problems. Mental and physical health are the two categories of health that are most widely discussed. A person’s physical health is defined as the absence of sickness in all parts of his body and the optimal performance of bodily functions and processes. The ability to do tasks without stress, feeling overwhelmed, not feeling anything at all, or making mistakes or errors, reflects a person’s mental and social wellness.

One of the most significant aspects of a person’s life is their health. Here are some of the reasons why maintaining good health is so vital.

  • Helps You Live Longer
  • Controls Your Stress
  • Protects Your Sight
  • Lowers Medical Costs
  • Increases Fertility
  • Encourages Self-Esteem

Importance of health checkups

We rarely take time for ourselves in our fast-paced world, where we are constantly on the go, to examine our health, check whether we are eating appropriately, getting enough sleep, exercising frequently, and so on. While we are aware that all of these seemingly insignificant details rule our lives and help us keep fit and healthy, we are unconcerned about our health until we run out of time. We become ill only to discover that we have been sedentary and unaware of our health problems for a long time.

A preventive health examination can help in the detection of disorders before they become serious. When you see your doctor on a regular basis, he or she will be able to spot diseases early. Early detection of disorders increases the likelihood of receiving the appropriate treatment and preventing consequences. By receiving good health care, you are taking essential steps toward living a longer and better life.

You can maintain track of your health by being tested on a regular basis. You can find out if you have a chronic disease and what steps you need to take to avoid it by looking at your test results. Regular health checks also help you to track whether your condition has improved or deteriorated if you’ve already been diagnosed with a disease and are getting treatment.

Conclusion

Regular health checkups will never be a problem when you have Dr. B. Lal Clinical Laboratory on your side. You can book now by calling 9166125555 or visiting www.blallab.com.

Every woman should set aside time for healthy behaviors such as regular exercise, stress management, and eating the right meals. One of those behaviors is scheduling routine screenings for health problems, which can detect and address problems early.

Screening on a regular basis may even save your life. By recognizing a problem early, you can avert complications and improve your quality of life. Many patients who dutifully attend their tests, have  the chance to change the trajectory of their lives.

DISEASES/CONDITIONS YOU SHOULD GET SCREENED FOR ON REGULAR INTERVALS

BLOOD PRESSURE

If your blood pressure is less than 120/80 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), the desired value, you should get it checked at least every two years beginning at the age of 20. Adults aged 40 and up, as well as those with conditions such as obesity that place them at a higher risk of hypertension, should undergo annual screening.

CHOLESTEROL

Total cholesterol levels should ideally be fewer than 200 mg/dl; a borderline high measurement is between 200 and 239 mg/dl. If you are at risk for heart disease or stroke, work with your doctor to determine how frequently you should get this blood test.

Also Read: Why should you consider choosing Super Suraksha Days?

MAMMOGRAMS

There has always been debate regarding when and how frequently a woman should have them. However, it is typically suggested that women begin yearly screenings at the age of 45 and transition to a biennial mammography at the age of 55. Consult your medical professional about starting annual screening earlier if you have a family history of the disease or other concerns.

DIABETES

Women should have a blood glucose test every three years beginning around the age of 45 to monitor for diabetes or prediabetes. A fasting plasma glucose test reading of 100 mg/dl or higher suggests that you may be prediabetic, but a reading greater than 126 mg/dl implies diabetes. If you are obese, have a family history of diabetes,  you should start sooner and get examined more frequently.

CERVICAL CANCER

A Pap smear should be performed every three years beginning at the age of 21 and continuing until the age of 65. If you’re 30 or older, you can have the test every five years if you combine it with an HPV screening, which is a sexually transmitted disease that can lead to cervical cancer.

WORLD CANCER DAY HISTORY

Every year on 4th February, we celebrate World Cancer Day to spread awareness around the disease. World Cancer Day, which began in the year 2000, has evolved into a positive movement that encourages people from all walks of life to come together as one to fight one of history’s greatest challenges.

Hundreds of activities and events are held each year around the world, bringing together communities, organizations, and individuals in schools, businesses, hospitals, marketplaces, parks, community halls, and places of worship – on the streets and online – as a powerful reminder that we all have a role to play in reducing cancer’s global impact.

CANCER IN INDIA

According to a new data, cancer incidence in India climbed at an annual pace of 1.1-2 percent on average from 2010 to 2019. The number of cancer deaths in the country increased by 0.1-1 percent on average over the same time period, according to the study.

According to a report published in JAMA on December 30, 2021 by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), University of Washington School of Medicine, the growth rates are among the highest in the world.

According to forecasts from another study, 1,392,179 persons in India will be diagnosed with cancer by 2020. Researchers discovered that the breast, lung, mouth, cervix, uterus, and tongue were the five most common sites of the disease.

We  know more of cancer now  than ever before. We’ve seen incredible advancements in medicine, diagnostics, and scientific knowledge as a result of investments in research and innovation.

THE THEME FOR THIS YEAR- CLOSE THE CARE GAP

This year the world is celebrating cancer day on the theme of bridging the care gap across countries, households and ethnicities. We can make greater progress in reducing risk factors, increasing prevention, and improving cancer diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and care if we learn more.

Also Read: World Aids Day 2021: Theme, Importance and Prevention!

Half of the world’s population does not have access to all critical health care. Despite the fact that we live in a period of incredible improvements in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, many of us are refused basic care when it comes to cancer.

The equity gap is real, and it’s costing people their lives. People seeking cancer treatment face obstacles at every turn. The poorest people are also more likely to be exposed to a variety of additional risk factors, such as cigarettes, a bad diet, or environmental risks.

So this year is all about raising awareness of this equity gap, which affects practically everyone in both high- and low-income countries and is costing lives. Learn more, show your support, and join the battle against cancer so that one day we can live in a world free of cancer.
