How do you diagnose human intestinal parasites? Human intestinal parasites are diagnosed through a number of ways including a stool sample, endoscopy or colonoscopy, blood tests and imaging tests such as an MRI, states the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The type of test that is used depends on the patient's symptoms. A stool test is done when a patient has intestinal cramping, diarrhea or gas, explains the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The samples are usually collected over several days then examined for the presence of eggs or parasites. Endoscopy or colonoscopy is used when a stool sample doesn't offer a diagnosis. In this case, a tube with a camera is placed in the intestines for a close look. Some intestinal parasites are diagnosed through a blood test, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These tests look for signs of parasitic infection in the blood. There are two main types of blood tests. A serology test looks for antibodies or antigens to diagnose a parasite. A blood smear looks for signs of parasites in the blood. If there are parasites that are causing lesions on the organs of the body, an X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging scan or computerized axial tomography scan may be used to positively diagnose that parasites are present. #doctorsoncall #healthyliving #cutdown #goodhealth #advocacy #danielochufoundation #livinghealthy #hospital #clinic #abuja #apo #shoprite #clinicnearme #Aporesettlement #abujahospital #abujaclinic #Apoclinic #Apohospital Courtesy© DOCTORS ON CALL HOSPITAL AND MATERNITY
Why have I lost my sense of taste? Ageusia is the medical term for absence of taste, and it often results from a decreased sense of smell as the taste and smell sensations are closely related, according to MedicineNet. It also occurs as a side effect of certain medications and as part of the normal aging process. In many cases, people experience a loss of taste when they have a problem with their sense of smell, says the National Institute On Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). Chewing, drinking or digesting food releases tiny molecules that stimulate special sensory cells in the mouth and throat. This is how people are able to taste food. A special channel connecting the roof of the throat to the nose helps activate the sense of smell. When it gets blocked, for example when the nose gets clogged by a cold or flu, the food's odors fail to reach sensory cells in the nose, leading to a loss of sense of taste. The NIDCD states that many people also develop taste problems after an illness or injury although some are born with taste disorders. Some of the causes of taste disorders include head injuries, surgeries to the ear nose or throat, upper respiratory and middle ear infections, radiation therapy for head and neck cancers, poor oral hygiene, and dental problems. #doctorsoncall #healthyliving #cutdown #goodhealth #advocacy #danielochufoundation #livinghealthy #hospital #clinic #abuja #apo #shoprite #clinicnearme #Aporesettlement #abujahospital #abujaclinic #Apoclinic #Apohospital Courtesy© DOCTORS ON CALL HOSPITAL AND MATERNITY
How do you know if you have diabetes? According to Diabetes Associations, the only way for a person to know if he has diabetes is to be tested; however, several common symptoms can indicate that a visit to the doctor is needed. These symptoms include frequent urination; feeling thirsty or hungry, especially after having already eaten; fatigue; blurred vision or cuts and bruises that are slow to heal There are additional symptoms based on the type of diabetes, according to Diabetes Associations. These include losing weight even if the person is eating more for type 1 diabetes and numbness or tingling in the hands or feet for type 2. The ADA notes that there are several tests that a doctor may use to determine if a patient has diabetes. These tests often require multiple visits to the doctor's office; however, if the doctor determines that the patient's blood glucose is very high or he has the above symptoms after one positive test, the doctor may not require additional testing. Many of the tests, such as the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test and the Fasting Plasma Glucose test, require the patient to fast for several hours. The A1C measures a person's average glucose level over a period of several months. The doctor determines which test, if any, needs to be performed. #doctorsoncall #healthyliving #cutdown #goodhealth #advocacy #danielochufoundation #livinghealthy #hospital #clinic #abuja #apo #shoprite #clinicnearme #Aporesettlement #abujahospital #abujaclinic #Apoclinic #Apohospital Courtesy© DOCTORS ON CALL HOSPITAL AND MATERNITY
How do you prevent diabetes? Adults at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes can reduce their risk by losing weight through regular exercise and eating a healthy diet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even a weight loss of as little as 5 to 7 percent of the starting body weight may prevent diabetes. Obesity is one of the biggest risk factors in developing diabetes, which makes weight loss a powerful tool in preventing the disease. Other risk factors include high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, physical inactivity and genetic predisposition, states the CDC. While genetics cannot be changed, lifestyle changes to combat the other risk factors can help. A minimum of 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days per week helps with weight loss. Exercise also reduces blood sugar levels and increases sensitivity to insulin, says Mayo Clinic. Diet is another strong factor in weight loss. Increasing fiber intake supports blood sugar control and increases the sensation of fullness to support weight loss. Eating whole grains may also help prevent diabetes. Changes in the type of fat consumed may also help reduce the risk of diabetes, notes the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Polyunsaturated fat such as the omega-3 fat found in fish is healthier than trans fats found in processed foods. Choosing lean proteins such as poultry or fish instead of red meat may also help prevent diabetes. #doctorsoncall #healthyliving #cutdown #goodhealth #advocacy #danielochufoundation #livinghealthy #hospital #clinic #abuja #apo #shoprite #clinicnearme #Aporesettlement #abujahospital #abujaclinic #Apoclinic #Apohospital courtesy: DOCTORS ON CALL HOSPITAL AND MATERNITY
Why do men go bald? QUICK ANSWER The most common cause of male hair loss is androgenic alopecia, otherwise known as male-pattern baldness, states the American Hair Loss Association. Sufferers of this condition have hair follicles with a genetic sensitivity to a substance called Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which causes the hair's life cycle to shorten prematurely, leading to thinning and falling hair. Other causes of hair loss in men include illness, old age and lifestyle habits. For certain types of male hair loss, various treatments exist. Mayo Clinic lists the two most prominent FDA-approved hair loss medications as minoxidil and finasteride. Minoxidil, marketed as Rogaine, is an over-the-counter liquid or foam that is applied to the scalp and works by inhibiting the effects of DHT. Finasteride, under the brand name Propecia, is an oral medication that does the same thing internally. Both medications are shown to be effective but not without some possible side effects, such as diminished sex drive, scalp irritation and increased risk of prostate cancer. Another solution to hair loss is surgical hair transplants, says the Mayo Clinic. During this procedure, a doctor takes small portions of skin and hair from the back and sides of the head and transplants them to the front and top to conceal balding areas. This option can be expensive and painful and comes with a risk of infection and permanent scarring. If medication or surgery is not an option, wigs and hairpieces can help conceal hair loss.

Is HIV curable? QUICK ANSWER; As of 2014, HIV is not curable, according to Mayo Clinic. However, there are several medications that slow the progression of the disease. HIV is a sexually transmitted infection that also spreads through contact with infected blood. According to Mayo Clinic, there are five classes of anti-HIV medications. They are: non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, protease inhibitors, entry or fusion inhibitors and integrase inhibitors. These medications work by making it difficult for the HIV virus to replicate and enter healthy cells. Patients typically take three drugs from two of the five drug classes to prevent HIV from becoming resistant to any single medication.

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent of having negative effect on health.  It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The condition creeps in over time, when more calories are consumed than used. In the spirit of the festivities in the end of the year, We'll be focusing on OBESITY; Causes, Harms and how to greatly reduce the risk of being Obese. Stay with us as we go on this journey and guess what, it's a #TerrificTuesday Obesity is mostly preventable through a combination of social changes and personal choices. Factors which might affect weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active. Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide, with increasing rates in adults and children. It is more common in women than men and authorities view it as one of the most serious public health problems of this century. . . . . . #healthonline #healthbenefit #healthbenefits #healthfacts #obesity #eathealty #eatright #healthyliving #healthyfood #hospitals #abujahospital #abujamarket #lagoshospital #lagosmarket #onlineclinic #onlinehealth #digitalhealthcare #digitalhealth #orthotics #prosthetics #medicalcenter #medicalcentre #medicaladvice

Greatnews for #Abuja residents. #Garki hospital is doing free #breastcancer checks . You'd be given a stipend of 1,000 for transport after checkup. Breast cancer can go many years undetected as lumps until they decide to become symptomatic. Early detection is key. Seize this opporunity.
