  • How many chest compressions should I do in case of a heart attack?

    If someone is having a heart attack, you should call 911. If you plan on saving a life, you need proper training in CPR and this best is done by taking a basic life support class. They will also teach you about the use of AED defibrillators that may be at the scene of a person needing immediate medical help. Chest compressions may not necessarily work. READ MORE

  • What is the connection between gout and eating non-veg?

    Gout is a disorder of purine metabolism. Purines are compounds, which are components of purine bases. Therefore.... Foods high in purine can and should be avoided. Aside from seafood, beef is also on the list of purine-rich foods. Some vegetables contain high levels of purine. Spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, and peas are vegetables to consider. Note that, although purine rich meats foods can exacerbate gout, in most individuals, vegetables do not. In some individuals, milk and cheese reduce the chances of gout. Obviously, everyone is genetically different, and what works for some, may not work for others. However, these are important things to consider, since you can use a food diary to see what may be exacerbating gout, and omit it from your diet. The following is a list of foods high in purine: Meat, poultry, fish, tofu, kidneys, brains liver, sweetbreads, offal, anchovies, sardines, seafood in general, asparagus, mushrooms, spinach, cauliflower, peas, lentils, meat extracts, gravies, and last, but not least, alcoholic beverages. READ MORE

    Your diabetes is governed by underlying conditions which were not specified here. Management of diabetes with medication (non-insulin dependent and insulin dependent) is one solution.
