to the report published by World Health Organization, around 326 million people
in the world suffer from migraine and approximately 24 million is suffering
from Alzheimer. In addition to this, people are
suffering from the above-mentioned diseases also.
Many people ask the question what leads the people to suffer
from neurological disorders. Frankly speaking, the causes of such diseases are
quite diverse. There is no linking between the diseases as there are various
nerves along the spinal cord, including the membranes. If any of these nerves
and membranes get disturbed or damaged, the patient starts suffering from
neurological disorders. The nature of the disease depends on which particular
nerve or membrane has been damaged. If the patient is suffering from a small
problem, it may damage the functioning of the neurological pathway as a whole,
or may affect a single neuron. These damages can occur for various reasons
which include infections, lifestyle reasons, genetics, nutrition causes,
influence of the environment and big physical injuries. A small physical injury
may also affect a nerve and cause neurological disorder in the patient.
Symptoms of neurological
disorder – emotional
When a person starts suffering from any neurological
disorder, some form of emotional outburst is also found in the patient. Due to
the pain or may be restriction in his mobility, he may have sudden and rough
outbursts. Symptoms of delusions and extreme depression are also found in the
patients who are suffering from these disorders.
The physical symptoms of neurological disorder are more
accurate. The physical symptoms of the disease may include weakness of the
muscle, complete or partial loss of the sensations, seizures, pain which he or
she cannot explain, a decrease in alertness and many more.
Effects of neurological disorders
patient is not serious about the treatment, the neurological disorders can turn
around for long-term serious consequences. The long-term and short-term effect
can vary to the extent of how severe is the situation. One should always
remember that if a patient is found to be suffering from the initial stage of
neurological disorder, he or she must be given medical treatment without any
delay. A number of medical examinations need to be conducted, depending on the
type of disease, and treatment to be immediately started.
5 million kids in America are suffering from obesity
Around 4.8 million kids in America who were between 10-17 years old were 15% overweight and obese in the year 2017-2018 based on a latest report. According to Dr. Richard Besser, who is the President and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson foundation said that the new reports showed the challenge touches several lives of many children in the country. The highest youth obesity states include Mississippi with 25.4%, Kentucky with 20.8%, West Virginia with 20.9%, Michigan at 18.9% and Louisiana at 20.8%. Utah has 8.7% of obese youth, Alaska with 9.9%, Minnesota at 9.4%, Montana 10.8% and Colorado at 10.7%.
The child’s progress has stopped because of
their obesity issues. According to the reports there are no stages which had
shown a great change in obesity rates between the years 2016, 2017
and 2018. The researchers have also seen great differences in ethnic and
racial behavior. The obesity rates in Hispanic youth is about 19% while in
blacks its 22% and whites had 12% and 7% were seen in Asians. When compared to
the Asian peers and whites, Hispanic youth and blacks were at greater risk of
developing obesity related health issues and diseases.
Findings have also shown that there were higher
obesity rates of nearly 22% in youth who had household income below the federal
poverty line and 9% of those who had income 4 times greater than the poverty
line. Obesity can also lead to various health issues and diseases like type 2
diabetes, various types of cancers and heart diseases. When preventive measures
have been taken at early stages of life it could be easy to reduce the risk of
obesity and its effects. If children of 5 years old are overweight they are 4
times likely that they will be obese by 14 years of age when compared to
healthy weight children.
A woman’s heart get affected by early menopause
A woman’s heart get affected by early menopause
According to a new research if women get menopause before she reaches 50 years of age, then she will be at a higher risk of developing the nonfatal heart conditions. Researchers have analyzed data from 300,000 women who were under 15 studies all around the globe and have found that those women who had menopause before 50 years were at greater risk of developing angina, heart attack or even stroke. Those women who were under 40 and had premature menopause were twice as likely to develop the non fatal cardiovascular diseases even before they reached 60 years of age. The studies are compared with that of the women who were 50 or 51 which is the actual standard period to develop menopause said Gita Mishra who is a school professor of public health at the University of Queensland, Australia. If women had developed menopause when they are between the ages of 40 to 44, then they were 40% more likely to develop heart conditions. We all know that precaution is always better than cure.
She also added saying that the relationship with
nonfatal cardiovascular events was not clear till now. The link between early
menopause and developing of cardiovascular diseases in women is higher when
they are overweight or obese, smoking ad when they have low education levels.
According to Dongshan Zhu, who is a study leader, a doctorate in public health
at University, it’s always better to identify who have early menopause so that
doctors can monitor and check their risk factors related to cardiovascular
diseases. When the disease is early diagnosed it will be easy to treat and
prevent it from causing serious health issues and will improve the overall
cardiovascular health. So, women should always have a track on their menopause
and consult a doctor if they are facing any symptoms of early menopause.
