Beware of Symptoms of Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a rare sleep disorder, characterized by recurrent attacks of irresistible sleep during the hours of work, paralysis and hallucinations. The cause is unknown, but these disorders tend to be found in one family, which allegedly is a hereditary disease.

Symptoms usually begin in adolescence or young adulthood and settled for life. Patients face the sudden attacks of irresistible sleepiness, which can occur at any time. Feel like sleeping only be detained for a while. But once asleep, the patient usually can be easily awakened.

The attacks can occur several times a day, and every attack usually lasts for 1 hour or less. The attacks are more common in a monotonous situation, such as a boring meeting or driving a car over long distances.

Patients feel the freshness when awake, but a few minutes then fall asleep again. Patients may experience temporary paralysis without a decrease in consciousness (a condition called katapleksi), in response to a sudden emotional reactions such as anger, fear, joy, laughter or surprise. Walking becomes limp, dropping goods being held or dropped to the ground.

Patients may also experience episodes of sleep paralysis, whereby when just falling asleep or immediately after waking, the patient felt unable to move. Hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that are not really there) may occur at the beginning of sleep or when awake. Hallucinations resembles an ordinary dream, but more powerful.

Diagnosis is usually established on the basis of the symptoms, but similar symptoms do not necessarily indicate that the person is suffering from narcolepsy. Katapleksi, sleep paralysis and hallucinations, commonly found in children and sometimes occurs in healthy adults.

Electroencephalogram (EEG), which is the recording of brain electrical activity, could indicate that the pattern of REM sleep occurs when the patient started to fall asleep. This is typical for narcolepsy. Nothing found structural changes in the brain and not found abnormalities in the results of blood tests.

Stimulant drugs (stimulants), such as fedrin, amphetamines, dekstroamfetamin and metilfenidat, can help reduce narcolepsy. The dose is adjusted to avoid undesirable side effects, such as anxiety, overactive or weight loss. To reduce katapleksi, usually given antidepressants, namely imipramin.

Prevent Typhoid Fever

Typhoid fever is a systemic infection caused by pathogenic bacteria especially Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi (S. typhi). Infections that are quite similar, but more or less severity is paratyphoid fever caused by S. paratyphi A, B, and sometimes C. S. typhi is a bacterial pathogen that has adapted well to humans about 50,000 years ago through a mechanism to survive in the host (host) extraordinary
Typhoid fever can be very severe, as seen from the report that 32% of deaths occurred in several regions of the world. Indonesia reported prevalence rate ranges from 1.6% and ranks 15 major causes of death. Until the twentieth century, the disease has spread throughout the world. Future cases of typhoid in developing countries will be much reduced because of improvements in sanitation and hygiene
In endemic areas, the highest incidence of typhoid fever occur in children aged 5 to 19 years, in some cases significantly typhoid causing pain between the ages of 1 to 5 years. In children aged younger than a year, the disease is usually more severe and associated with complications that commonly occur
Typhoid is usually transmitted through consumption of contaminated food or water and certain risk factors including drinking from contaminated water sources, drinks with ice, and fruits and vegetables grown using fertilizer from manure. Transmission connection with contaminated urine can also occur. Transmission from person to person are also possible. Pathogens can survive in water for days and months on frozen eggs and shellfish contaminated.
In general, symptoms of typhoid fever would occur after 7-14 days since the body is infected, but can also range from 3 till 60 days. Patients typically come to the hospital with complaints such as fever, flu symptoms, severe headache, malaise, anorexia, abdominal discomfort, dry cough, and sore muscles.
Gradually, the body temperature will continue to rise and settle at a high temperature in the second week, and even up to 4 weeks if not treated. Then the temperature will return to normal, though a sense of weakness and fatigue will continue to be felt until a few weeks later.
10% to 15% of patients who do not get treatment usually experience a variety of complications such as bleeding and perforation in the small intestine, as well as a few conditions of nerve disorders. Bleeding occurs in conditions of severe infection, and is characterized by lower body temperature rapidly and then rose again in the early occurrence of peritonitis, a dangerous condition in which inflammation occurs in the peritoneum (the thin membrane protects the walls of the abdominal cavity). Small bowel perforation occurs in 1-3% of patients hospitalized with a mortality rate of 40%. This complication usually affects the terminal ileum and need immediate surgery.
Recurrence occurs in 5-10% of cases, usually within a month after the fever was declared cured. Symptoms are generally milder than the previous infection and in cases where the molecular classification of S. typhi has been conducted, showed that relapse is generally caused by isolates of the same type of previous infection. Recurrent infections with isolates of different species can also occur.
The factors that most affect the poor condition of patients with typhoid fever is the delay in providing adequate antibiotic treatment and effective. It is important to ensure the eradication of S. typhi from patients to reduce the likelihood of recurrence or status as carriers of disease. In cases where severe abdominal swelling and vomiting or diarrhea patients should be continuously hospitalized and intravenously. In general, typhoid fever patients to undergo treatment at home with oral antibiotics and outpatient.
Contaminated food and water is known as a medium of transmission of typhoid fever. Currently, prevention of enteric fever is more focused on improving sanitation, water supply and ensure food security, identification and therapy (carrier) and chronic use of typhoid vaccines to reduce human vulnerability to infection
Vaccination is an additional weapon and not a substitute for avoiding the foods and beverages at risk because not 100% protective efficacy; further immunity can be defeated by the number of bacterial inoculum doses. There are two currently used vaccine, namely Ty21 vaccines given per oral and injectable vaccine Vi polysaccharide pure. Both are considered safe and well tolerated

Facts About Aging Skin

Facts About Aging Skin
To understand better on how to combat the signs of aging, you should also familiar with the process itself. The rate at which age our skin aging and how aging occurs is determined by genetic factors, and our lifestyle. All these factors play an important role in providing information and help predict how we look in the future.

1. Our Family Tree

Our bodies have internal clocks that help determine how and when we will age. For some, the clock is ticking faster than others and cause them to look and / or feel older than they should. As for the other, the clock is ticking more slowly, and make them look and / or feel young. This clock is set by the DNA of our ancestors. This means there is a possibility of health and strength of our bodies, including our skin, will have the same strengths and weaknesses such as those found on members of our family.

See our similarities with parents and assess how the skin at a certain age could be a strong indicator to predict how we look in the future. But the habits and lifestyle play a significant role here. For example, if your parents smoke or often stung by the sun and you never do it, then health and your overall appearance will be better.

Knowing the strengths and weaknesses in yourself can be a benchmark to take preventive action. For example, if the sagging skin is characteristic of your family, there is a habit or lifestyle that we can adjust. For example, do not lose weight dramatically with age. Our genetics can also be a good indication to determine the most effective treatment. For example, if one family member has successfully used this type of treatment with certain substances without being accompanied by irritation, then you also have an opportunity to get the same benefits.

2. As Time Passes

When the body got older, the natural function of our bodies also start to decline, including biochemical mechanisms that keep skin look good. Our skin has a natural defense system that is integrated to protect from damage, whether from the sun, drinking too much alcohol, lack of sleep, and other factors. Skin also has a remarkable ability to regenerate that help repair any damage that may occur.

But our skin also has natural enzymes that can destroy it. At age we age, our skin's defense forces will also be degraded naturally. Which means our skin will lose the ability to fend off and recover from the onslaught from both internal and external.

Here's another analogy about fitness. A young runners can recover one day after a crash. His knees may feel a little sick, but the next day he could get up and running again without any major issues. Conversely, an older runner, has less natural protection against certain types of trauma and become less optimal regenerative abilities to help repair damaged joints. Not unlike our skin.

When growing older, the skin that often experience stress, often stung by the sun or lack of sleep, the skin's natural defenses will also be much reduced. Fortunately, thanks to modern science, several protective and reparative products can take over when the natural defense functions begin degraded.

3. Habits and Lifestyle

When buying a new pair of shoes, the skin will feel smooth and free of stains. But after we wear, these shoes will start to show folds. At first, these folds are only visible when we walk. But the longer we go the more of these folds. Our skin is included in such species. The more we use, so it looks more and will be increasingly obsolete.

And if we make repeated facial movements for years, then gradually formed lines wrinkles on the face. But again, the wrinkles will not be permanent. There are ways for them to return to its original state. Plus, there are habits and lifestyle we can adopt to prevent it. Sun, wind, lack of sleep, diet or an unhealthy diet and other habits will increase in facial wrinkles. By making certain changes in daily routine, we not only can improve overall health also improve skin condition.

Genetic factors also play here, although some people have skin that tends to be more resistant to stress levels than others. Surely you have an annoying friend who often eat a cheeseburger and fries but still slim and did not experience high blood pressure. Once we know the genetic factors that determine the natural skin aging process and lifestyle, then we can create specific strategies to perform maintenance to keep skin look perfect.

No matter how you feel and your perspective on your skin, it is important to remember that permanent procedures such as face lifts (skin tightening techniques) and other invasive measures such as laser resurfacing is not recommended. Because can leave scars and skin discoloration.

The first step to look beautiful and have always been younger-looking skin is to learn all the elements: genetics, lifestyle, your skin condition now, and how you feel about your appearance. So you can make intelligent decisions before determining what products and skin treatment that can work well.
