Thyroid Disorders Treatment

Thyroid Disorders Treatment

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of the neck just below the Adams apple. The gland wraps around the windpipe (trachea) and has a shape that is similar to a butterfly formed by two wings (lobes) and attached by a middle part (isthmus). The thyroid gland works like a tiny factory that uses iodine (mostly from the diet in foods such as seafood and salt) to produce thyroid hormones. These hormones help to regulate the body’s metabolism and effects processes, such as growth and other important functions of the body.

The two most important thyroid hormones are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), representing 99.9% and 0.1% of thyroid hormones respectively. The hormone with the most biological power is actually T3...

Medicinal Side Effects Removal Treatment

Medicinal Side Effects Removal Treatment

Sometimes medicines can cause side effects. Side effects can be minor or life-threatening. They are more common as people age, so it’s important to understand how to identify and prevent side effects.

It can be difficult to distinguish between side effects and symptoms of disease, especially in people who have several different diseases. For example, dizziness might be mistaken for a symptom of heart disease, rather than a side effect from a new medication

Common side effects from medicines are dizziness, fatigue, constipation or headache. Since some side effects are very vague, such as difficulties with balance or memory, people may attribute them to normal aging.

Side effects are more common in older people since many have several chronic diseases or conditions and, therefore, are often ...

Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects how the person moves, including how they speak and write. Symptoms develop gradually, and may start off with ever-so-slight tremors in one hand. People with Parkinson’s disease also experience stiffness and find they cannot carry out movements as rapidly as before – this is called bradykinesia. The muscles of a person with Parkinson’s become weaker and the individual may assume an unusual posture.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include muscle rigidity, tremors, and changes in speech and gait. Parkinson’s causes are unknown but genetics, aging, and toxins are being researched. After a Parkinson’s diagnosis, Parkinson’s disease treatments are given to help relieve symptoms...

Muscular Dystrophy Treatment

muscular dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of inherited diseases in which the muscles that control movement (called voluntary muscles) progressively weaken. In some forms of this disease, the heart and other organs are also affected.
There are nine major forms of muscular dystrophy:
Myotonic
Duchenne
Becker
Limb-girdle
Facioscapulohumeral
Congenital
Oculopharyngeal
Distal
Emery-Dreifuss

Muscular dystrophy can appear in infancy up to middle age or later, and its form and severity are determined in part by the age at which it occurs.  Some types of muscular dystrophy affect only males; some people with MD enjoy a normal life span with mild symptoms that progress very slowly; others experience swift and severe muscle weakness and wasting, dying in their late teens to early 20s.

The various types of ...

Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

Multiple sclerosis affects the brain and spinal cord. Early symptoms of multiple sclerosis include weakness, tingling, numbness, and blurred vision. Other possible warning signs are muscle stiffness, thinking problems, and urinary problems. A multiple sclerosis diagnosis is made by the history of symptoms and a neurological exam, often with the help of tests such as an MRI or a spinal tap. No one’s sure what causes multiple sclerosis, but it may be hereditary. There’s no cure for multiple sclerosis, but treatment can relieve worsening of symptoms.

What Are The Causes Of MS?
Although experts are still uncertain, most of them say that the person’s own immune system attacks the myelin as if it were an undesirable foreign body – in the same way our immune system might attack a virus or bac...

Motor Neuron Diseases Treatment

Motor Neuron Diseases Treatment

Motor neuron disease (MND) is a serious and incurable form of progressive neurodegeneration – over time the nerves in the spine and brain progressively lose function. In the case of motor neuron disease, motor neurons – types of nerve cells – are affected.

There are different forms of motor neuron disease

ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is the most common form and accounts for approximately 60% to 70% of all cases.

PBP (progressive bulbar palsy) accounts for about 20% of all cases.

PMA (progressive muscular atrophy) accounts for the remaining 10% of cases.

In all three MND forms symptoms are very similar. However, they progress at different speeds.

 Motor neurones control important muscle activity such as:

walking
speaking
breathing
swallowing

In its early stages, motor neurone disea...

Menstural Disorder Treatment

Menstural Disorder Treatment

A menstrual disorder is a physical or emotional problem that interferes with the normal menstrual cycle, causing pain, unusually heavy or light bleeding, delayed menarche, or missed periods.

Amenorrhea
There are two types of amenorrhea: primary and secondary. Overall, they affect 2-5% of childbearing women, a number that is considerably higher among female athletes (possibly as high as 66%).
Primary amenorrhea occurs when a girl at least 16 years old is not menstruating. Young girls may not have regular periods for their first year or two, or their periods may be very light, a condition known as oligomenorrhea. A light flow is nothing to worry about. But if the period has not begun at all by age 16, there may be something wrong...

Knee Pain Treatment

Knee Pain Treatment

Knee problems and injuries most often occur during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or home projects.

The knee is the largest joint in the body. The upper and lower bones of the knee are separated by two discs (menisci). The upper leg bone (femur) and the lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) are connected by ligaments, tendons, and muscles. The surface of the bones inside the knee joint is covered by articular cartilage, which absorbs shock and provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint movement. See a picture of the structures of the knee camera.

Although a knee problem is often caused by an injury to one or more of these structures, it may have another cause. Some people are more likely to develop knee problems than others...
