Omaha, Nebraska, USA, since her mother’s womb as young as 20 weeks, ultrasound showed the fetus Evie Elsaesser has a very fragile bones. Doctors even thought he had a rare bone disorder and can not survive long after birth.
Evie Elsaesser has a rare bone condition called hypophosphatasia, the metabolic conditions that prevent minerals such as calcium and phosphorus stored in the bones properly.
“They thought he would die of respiratory failure due to his bones are so weak,” said his mother Lindsey Elsaesser (28 years), as reported by MyHealthNewsDaily. (more…)
Norovirus infection can cause severe diarrhea and vomiting. Noroviruses are the leading cause of gastrointestinal illness in closed and crowded environments, such as hospitals, nursing homes, and cruise ships. Usually, people with norovirus infection develop diarrhea and abdominal pain and began vomiting within 24-48 hours of exposure. Norovirus symptoms can last several days, but most people recover fully without treatment. But in some people, especially infants, adults, and people with underlying disease, vomiting and diarrhea can cause dehydration and require medical attention. Infection is highly contagious norovirus. Noroviruses generally spread through food or water contaminated by feces. Norovirus infection can also spread through close contact with an infected person, for example if you live in a nursing home.
Noroviruses are highly contagious through the feces of infected humans and animals. Oysters, salad, and raspberries can be a food that is responsible for the outbreak. Infected people can transfer the virus to any food product just before serving. Methods of transmission include:
1. Eating contaminated foods
2. 3 Drinking water contaminated. Touching hand to mouth after hand contact with contaminated surfaces or objects Noroviruses are difficult to eradicate, because the virus could be resistant to heat and cold temperatures, as well as disinfectants.
Signs and symptoms of norovirus infection include:
3. Abdominal pain
4. Stomach cramps
6. Weight loss
7. Bad taste
8. Mild fever incubation period for norovirus infection usually 24-48 hours after the first exposure to the virus.
Signs and symptoms usually last 1-3 days. Some people with norovirus infection may not show signs or symptoms. However, such persons can transmit norovirus and may unwittingly spread the virus to others.
There is no specific treatment for norovirus infection, and recovery generally depends on the health of the immune system. At most, the disease usually resolves within a few days. The main factor is to replace lost fluids. If you do not drink enough fluids to prevent dehydration, may need to receive fluids intravenously.
Sometimes a lot of women feel fresh even after enough sleep but still feel tired. If you have been getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night, but when you wake up the next day still feels tired, it is necessary to find the cause of fatigue.
“Fatigue may be a sign of serious disease,” experts said.
About any medical condition which is the cause of fatigue?
Melanoma is a type of cancer that develops in the cells that produce melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin color. Eyes also have cells that produce melanin and can develop melanoma. Eye melanoma is also called ocular melanoma.
Ocular melanoma is often not visible when the mirror. This makes it difficult to detectocular melanoma. In addition, ocular melanomas usually do not cause early signs or symptoms.
Treatment for some small ocular melanoma may not impair vision. However, treatment for melanoma of the eye usually causes some loss of vision.
It is unclear what causes ocular melanoma. Doctors know that ocular melanoma develops when an error occurs in the DNA of cells of a healthy eye. Errors DNA tells cells to grow and multiply out of control. So that the mutated cells continue to live as they normally would die.
Mutated cells to accumulate in the eye and ocular melanoma form. Ocular melanoma most often develops in the cells of uvea, the layer of the eye blood vessels are sandwiched between the retina, a thin layer of tissue lining the back wall of the eyeball, and the whites of the eyes (sclera). Ocular melanoma can occur in the front of the uvea (iris and ciliary body) or in the back of the uvea (choroid layer).
Ocular melanoma can also occur in the outermost layer at the front of the eye (conjunctiva), in a socket that surrounds the eyeball and eyelid, although very rare type of ocular melanoma.
Ocular melanoma may not cause signs and symptoms. Signs and symptoms of ocular melanoma may include:
1. Dark areas grew in slices
2. The sensation of flashing lights
3. Changes in the form of dark circle in the center of the eye
4. Vision in one eye
5. Loss of vision in the affected eye
Ocular melanoma treatment options will depend on the location and size of melanoma, as well as overall patient health. If small and not developing melanoma, the patient maychoose to wait and observe the development of growth.
If the melanoma is growing or causing complications, it may choose to undergo treatmentat that time. Several treatment options for ocular melanoma, among others:
Ectropion is a condition where the eyelid, leaving the inner surface of the eyelids open andsusceptible to irritation. Ectropion occurs mainly in the elderly. In severe ectropion, allsegments of the affected eyelid. When the ectropion is less severe, only one segment of the eyelid sags away from the eye. Artificial tears can help relieve symptoms caused by ectropion to be able to performsurgery to correct the condition.
Ectropion can have several different causes, including:
1. muscle weakness
2. facial paralysis
3. Scars or skin problems
4. Growth in the eyelid
5. Had previously undergone surgery, radiation, or cosmetic procedures
6. Rapid weight loss
7. congenital ectropion
Normally, when blinking, eyelid distribute water evenly across the eye. Thus keeping theeyelids causes remain lubricated. Tears were flowing into the small hole on the inside of the eyelids (puncta). If you have ectropion, lower eyelid pulled away from the eyes and tears did not flow into the puncta properly, causing a number of signs and symptomsinclude:
3. Excessive dryness, sometimes with a sensation such as sandy
Eye drops and ointments can be used to manage symptoms and protect the cornea untilpermanent treatment done. Most cases of ectropion require surgery. Care that can be done for this condition, among others:
1. Stretching of scar tissue
This treatment may be considered if ectropion is caused by the development of scartightening or pulling the skin. Massaging the scar tissue or injected steroids may help tomodify the scar and relieve the ectropion. However, this method may not be effective.
There are several different surgical techniques for ectropion, depending on the causesand conditions of the surrounding eyelid tissue. Before surgery, patients will receive a local anesthetic to numb the eye and surrounding area.
