Thank you to Latimer et. al. for their article: Costs of services for homeless people with mental illness in 5 Canadian cities: a large prospective follow-up study. CMAJO...
In addition, lactose-free milk and other dairy products are readily available in most grocery stores. Unfortunately these products are usually a bit more expensive than ordinary dairy products. I do feel they are worth the extra expense to prevent lactose intolerance symptoms.
The following things may help with shiftwork health issues:
- proper eating habits
- sleep hygiene practices
- trying to get day shifts
- see your doctor for other suggestions and ways to accomplish the above stated suggestions
If this culture is negative, the cause is nor a bacteria. The redness could be due to a scratch of the cornea (clear layer over the eye surface), foreign body of the eye, local irritation by allergy/virus (these are usually in both eyes) or dryness in the eye (needs lubricant drops). Depending on the above causes a different treatment is needed.
Asthma is sometimes outgrown as children get older, less likely in adults. The other causes of REVERSIBLE reactive airway disease are covered in the topic noted as per above.
- Avoid meals totally before short trips. If longer trips are planned, offer children plain crackers and water 2-4 hours before the trip.
- Have children focus on things outside the car rather than reading or playing games.
- Turn on cool air ventilation in the car.
- If nausea occurs have the child exit the car and walk around. Place a cool wet compress on the head.
- Try plan trips during nap times so the child is asleep for most of the trip.
- Medications are effective for prophylaxis of motion sickness and cause drowsiness which encourages sleep, itself a treatment for motion sickness. Consult your doctor regarding proper dosing. Dramamine and Benadryl are two brand names often used.
All in all, I think that the prognosis for you and your family is very good.
Hand swelling during exercise is a fairly common problem. The cause isn't completely clear, but hand swelling appears to be a result of the way your body and blood vessels respond to the increased energy demands of your muscles during exercise.
Exercise increases blood flow to your heart and lungs, as well as to the muscles you're working. This can reduce blood flow to your hands, making them cooler. In turn, the blood vessels in your hands may react by opening wider — which could lead to hand swelling.
As you continue to exercise, your muscles generate heat that makes your system push blood to the vessels closest to the surface of your body, to dissipate heat. This response triggers perspiration and may also contribute to hand swelling.
Sometimes, endurance athletes develop hyponatremia (hi-poe-nuh-TREE-me-uh) — an abnormally low level of sodium concentration. Swollen fingers and hands may be a sign of hyponatremia, but other signs, such as confusion and vomiting, are more prominent than is swelling. Drinking too much water, particularly during a marathon or similar long, strenuous event, may cause your body's sodium to become so diluted that you become hyponatremic. Hyponatremia requires immediate medical attention.
There's no proven way to prevent or reduce most exercise-related hand swelling, but these tips may help ease discomfort:
•Remove your rings and loosen your watchband before exercise.
•Perform occasional forward and backward arm circles during exercise.
•Stretch your fingers wide and then make fists several times during exercise.
Your doctor can provide antihistamines by mouth or nasal sprays that effectively treat allergic sinusitis. Viral infection are the most common cause of infectious sinusitis. However, these infections can be secondarily infected with bacteria which require two weeks of antibiotics by mouth and nasal spray treatment.
Chronic sinusitis is a totally different entity and needs specialty diagnosis and treatment.
If an abrasion (scratch of the cornea) or conjunctivitis (inflammation of the red part of the eye and blood vessels on the white sclera) is diagnosed, eye drops or ointment may be given. Glasses may be prescribed if the excessive blinking is caused by blurry vision.
A habitual tic is a small, voluntary body movement. It may be caused by, among other things, stress, fatigue or boredom. It usually affects both eyes at the same time. It affects boys twice as often as girls, with the average age of 5 years when it first appears. It is a benign condition that will resolve without treatment, usually within weeks to years, often recurring intermittently. There is no neurologic cause, and further evaluation and brain scans are not necessary. If the child displays multiple tics and/or auditory (vocal) tics, an appointment with a Neurologist is indicated.
(1) Season - Allergens are heaviest in spring and fall
(2) Climate/Weather - Rain and dry spells can affect seasonal variation of allergens
Most weather apps online now list the hay fever burden from season to season. Following these reports can help predict the need for antihistamines and nasal sprays (the latter can now can replace the need for antihistamine tablets) to treat hay fever. These medications can obviate the need for allergy shots which were used in the past!!!
- lack of cardiovascular fitness
- obesity, etc.
Some key questions are:
Do you have swelling of the ankles/legs?
Do you feel your heart racing or flip-flopping?
Do yo have to sit up ant night due to SOB?
Do you get SOB when you lay down?
Do you have high blood pressure or family history of heart disease?
Do you have a history of thyroid disease or thyroid disease in your family?
Do you wheeze with the SOB or have a history of asthma?
Regardless of the answers to these questions, I would consult a doctor as soon as possible with the symptoms you have now?
Research has shown that he typical age for walking was 12 months, but the results ranged from eight-and-a-half months to 20 months. More importantly, there is little or no link between such early motor milestones and later development.
The following link is a great article explaining the above issues based on sound research. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2304753/Why-shouldnt-worry-baby-starts-walk.html
Parents should only be concerned if walking has not occurred by 18 months</span>. In such cases, other developmental issues have usually arisen before this reported delay, signifying a more serious problem. The cited article should answer all your other questions!
These side effects are not due to the flu virus as is often a misconception. They are most likely to occur in the first 1-2 days and then stop. Studies show that only ~5% of people have fever and muscle aches.
Very often a healthy person can tolerate getting the flu, but they. can give it to one of the high risk groups mentioned above. This is the logic behind all people getting this important immunization!
These unregulated compounds make dosage recommendations and monitoring of therapy difficult. Protein levels are so dependent on many medical issues such as liver function, kidney disease, cancer, diabetes malabsorption and other metabolic conditions.
The best avenue for protein supplementation is to have your lab values monitored by a physician and then receive advice from a registered dietitian upon consult from the physician. There are regulated protein supplements recommended by health care professionals that are designed for various disease states.
The bottom line is always consult a physician before starting any type of supplementation.
You may have had surgery to remove part of the stomach or the last part of your small intestine, called the ileum. This includes some types of surgery used to help very overweight people lose weight.
You may have problems with the way your body digests food, such as sprue (also called celiac disease), Crohn's disease, bacteria growth in the small intestine, or a parasite.This anemia can also happen if you don't eat enough foods with B12, but this is rare. People who eat a vegan diet and older adults who don't eat a variety of foods may need to take a daily vitamin pill to get enough B12. Other causes include drinking alcohol and taking some prescription and nonprescription medicines.
