Nobody likes getting sick — and it’s even worse when coughing, sneezing and headaches lead to lost time at work. Unfortunately, it only takes one person to get a large group of people sick, so it’s important to understand the nature of colds and the flu. Colds and flu look similar, too, but Influenza, or the “flu,” is a contagious respiratory illness. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can even be fatal. Older adults, young children, and people with certain health conditions are at high risk for serious flu complications, including bacterial pneumonia, ear infections, sinus infections, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions.With flu season here, prevention is your best defense against the fever, body aches, and cough that the virus can bring on. 1.Arm yourself with a vaccine.:- The flu vaccine can help prevent flu. This is especially important for those over 65 years old, as well as anyone with a weakened immune or respiratory system(patients suffering from Diabetes,tuberculosis,AIDS,Renal Failure,etc ), nursing home residents, and health care workers who have regular contact with patients. Pregnant women whose last two trimesters fall during flu season might consider getting the shot as well. 2.Stay at least three feet away from anyone who's coughing or sneezing.:- The flu virus is a parasite that hangs around in respiratory secretions that travel through the air in small droplets; when projected by a cough or sneeze, they can fly about three feet before gravity takes over. A flu patient who's actively projecting these droplets by coughing or sneezing can contaminate the air you breathe. There's no practical way to assess whether someone has a benign nose tickle, a cold, or the flu, so it's best to keep your distance from anyone with suspicious symptoms. 3.Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Simply touching a contaminated surface won't give you the flu, since the virus doesn't infect the skin — it has to make it to a mucosal membrane in your mouth or nose to cause an infection. But you risk getting sick when you touch an infected surface and transfer the virus to your face. Get in the habit of bumping elbows with others rather than shaking hands. 4.Clean your hands. Touch a light switch? Communal keyboard? Water cooler? Whether you're in a public place or in your home, it's smart to wash your hands after handling any commonly-touched surfaces using soap and water afterward. Lather up for at least 20 seconds, then rinse under water, and air dry or pat dry with a clean towel, . In the absence of a sink, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. 5.Practice good health habits. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home or work , especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
Cutting most of the sugar from a child's diet can immediately improve health, even if the diet still contains the same amount of calories and carbohydrates as before, a study from the University of California, San Francisco, suggests. The authors reported dramatic differences in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood sugar and other signs of metabolic syndrome, a condition that increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The objective of study team led by Pediatrician Robert Lustig, M.D., was to determine whether sugar itself – not excess calories – is responsible for the risks to health that constitute metabolic syndrome. After the nine days with less sugar, the findings were impressive. The kids’ LDL (“bad”) cholesterol had dropped by 10 points, their diastolic (the bottom number) blood pressure fell by five points, their triglycerides declined by 33 points. The investigators further reported that the kids’ fasting blood sugar and insulin levels, both of which can signal diabetes risk, also improved. These findings certainly suggest that sugar is responsible for increased risk of metabolic syndrome in obese kids,and people would do well to follow dietary guidelines that encourage them to limit sugar intake and eat more fruits and vegetables SOURCES: Robert Lustig, M.D., MSL, pediatric endocrinologist, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco; Jeffrey Mechanick, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.E., F.A.C.N., E.C.N.U., clinical professor and director, metabolic support, division of endocrinology, diabetes and bone disease, Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine, New York City; Oct, 27, 2015, statement, The Sugar Association; Oct. 27, 2015, Obesity, online
Thanks for the email. Great work was done during my Dad's stay there for his knee pain. I could not send a video. However he is walking well than before. When I come to India I will make it a point to see him. I have a lot of respect for the place... Keep up the good work.
We had our new born in Sri Sudharsanam Hospital. They staff including the doctors, nurses made us feel like family. Very experienced, affectionate and very caring. The quality of the service and the staff in hospital made the whole experience a very pleasant and memorable one. Thank you!
This is the best hospital in reception, diagnosis and treatment. For the past 2 years I choose to come for regular medical check up and follow-up. The rates are fair to both patients as well as the hospital. Excellent care is given by all staff. Many people were recommended to visit this hospital by me. I wish them all success.
