Stroke (also known as Brain Attack) occurs when blood supply to the brain is affected due to either blockage or leakage (or both blockage and leakage) of a blood vessel responsible for supplying or draining blood to and from the brain, thereby, causing brain damage leading to difficulty in movements, sensation, speaking, vision etc. or at times to death. Types of stroke Ischemic Stroke:In India about 70-75% of all strokes are ischemic, in which blood flow to the brain is blocked by blood clots or fatty deposits (also known as plaque) in blood vessel linings. Hemorrhagic Stroke:It occurs when a blood vessel leaks in the brain. Blood accumulates and compresses the surrounding brain tissue. This is also called ‘Brain hemorrhage. Intracerebral hemorrhage: It is the most common type of hemorrhagic stroke. It occurs when an artery in the brain leaks, flooding the surrounding tissue with blood. Subarachnoid hemorrhage: It is bleeding in the area between the brain and its covering consisting of layers of tissue. Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a "warning stroke" or a "mini-stroke" that results in no lasting damage. Recognizing and treating TIAs immediately can reduce your risk of a major stroke. Symptoms Stroke can affect any movement, senses, speech, behavior, thoughts, memory, and emotions. The body may become paralyzed or weak. The five most common symptoms of stroke are Weakness or Numbness of the face, arm, or leg. Confusion or trouble speaking or understanding others. Difficulty in vision Difficulty in walking or loss of balance or coordination. Severe headache with unknown cause. Causes Presence of following risk factors place people at increased risk for developing stroke. A.Non-modifiable Family history Old age Male sex B.Modifiable High blood pressure Diabetes High cholesterol Heart disease Smoking (as it injures the blood vessels and speeds up the hardening of the arteries) Consuming excessive alcohol (as it increases the blood pressure) Low socioeconomic status Source : NHPDr. Hemant Adhikari24 Likes33 Answers

Benefits of Antioxidants medindia.net Aug 19, 2017 12:00 PM Introduction Antioxidants are natural or artificial substances available in foods which help prevent cell damage caused by harmful free radicals. The human body is constantly fighting against infections and diseases. The body performs various functions such as breathing, physical activity to name a few. These functions produce free radicals which damage healthy cells resulting in heart disease, cancer, and many other diseases. Antioxidants play a crucial role to neutralize the free radicals by binding to oxidants and thus protect the cells from damage.Antioxidants are good for overall health and here are some benefits of antioxidants: Antioxidants and Free Radicals Free radicals are unstable molecules which are generated during physical activity and when food convert into energy. The body also gets exposed to free radicals from external sources including cigarette smoke, air pollution and UV radiation from the sunlight. These free radicals are harmful and can cause damage to cell walls, cell structures and the genetic material (DNA). In a normal cell, the formation and removal of free radicals are balanced. Overload of free radicals in the cell may enter a state called ‘oxidative stress’ which results in certain diseases including heart disease, liver disease, cancers and many other diseases such as eye lens deterioration, joint inflammation, damage of nerve cells in the brain causing Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. Antioxidants can neutralize the free radicals and thereby, prevent the cell damage. Hence, antioxidant rich foods help to cut the risk of various diseases. Plant foods are primary sources of antioxidants. Vegetables and fruits have a high content of antioxidants. Antioxidants are also available in the form of dietary supplements. Common forms of antioxidants available in the foods are Beta-carotene, Lutein, Lycopene, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Antioxidants and Skin Health Benefits Human skin is constantly getting exposed to the air, solar radiation and other environmental and chemical pollutants. Exposure to ultraviolet rays (UVR) results in the generation of free radicals in the form of singlet oxygen, superoxide radicals, and peroxide radicals. These highly reactive molecules can damage carbohydrates, nucleic acids, lipids, and proteins and therefore, are responsible for erythema, premature aging of the skin, photodermatoses and skin cancer. ￼ Skin is equipped with natural antioxidants. Epidermis layer of the skin has plenty of vitamin E, antioxidants like superoxide dismutases, and glutathione peroxidases. Apart from these, skin epidermis and dermis also contain huge amounts of antioxidants including ascorbic acid, uric acid and glutathione. Antioxidants present in the food helps to keep up the oxidative balance in the cell and thus protect the skin health. Antioxidants help to lower the free radical damage of collagen and elastin and thus prevent wrinkle formation and other signs of premature aging. Studies reported that antioxidants including carotenoids, tocopherols, and flavonoids, vitamins (A, C, D), and essential omega-3- fatty acids help to promote skin health. Antioxidants and Immune System Support The immune system carries out protective function against external pathogen with the help of free radicals. Excess production of free radicals can lead to oxidative stress which can cause damage to immune cells resulting in impaired immune function. The human body is well equipped with an antioxidant defense mechanism including enzymatic antioxidants like glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase, catalase and superoxide dismutase as well as non-enzymatic antioxidants such as thiol antioxidants, melatonin, coenzyme Q, and metal chelating proteins which help to neutralize excessive free radicals. Moreover, antioxidants from nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids, polyphenols, and trace elements also support to lower the harmful effects of free radicals. ￼ Other conditions Oxidative stress caused due to free radicals is harmful and results in age-related macular degeneration and cataracts by altering various cell types in the eye. Oxidative stress is also accountable for various renal diseases including glomerulonephritis and tubulointerstitial nephritis, chronic renal failure, proteinuria, uremia. Antioxidant therapy helps to prevent chronic ailments such as heart disease, stroke, memory loss, depression, arthritis, cataract, and cancer. Antioxidant Rich Foods Antioxidants present in our daily diet plays a key role in the neutralization of oxidative stress. Vegetables and fruits are high in antibiotics. It is evident that intake of lots of fruits and vegetables lowers the risk of certain diseases. Examples of antioxidants are: Carotenoids: Vitamin A derivatives are known as carotenoids. For example â - carotene, astaxanthin, lycopene, and retinol. Tomatoes are the major source of lycopene. Study report confirms that high consumption of lycopene helps to cut the occurrence of prostate cancer. Carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, mangoes and papaya contain â - carotene. Astaxanthin is found in microalgae, yeast, salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, crayfish and crustacea.Selenium: It is a trace element and available in the soil, water, vegetables (such as garlic, onion, grains, nuts, soybean), sea food, meat, liver, and yeast.Vitamin C: Ascorbic acid is the name of vitamin C. It has antioxidant properties along with anti-carcinogenic properties. Most of the fruits and vegetables contain some amount of vitamin C. Cantaloupe, citrus fruits and juices, kiwi fruit, mango, papaya, pineapple, berries (straw berries, raspberries, blueberries and cranberries) have high content of vitamin C. Vegetables including green and red peppers, spinach, cabbage, turnips greens, sweet and white potatoes, winter squash, tomatoes contain higher amount of vitamin C.Vitamin E: It is a highly potent antioxidant and helps to prevent colon, prostate and breast cancers, heart diseases, and other illnesses.Lutein: It is found in green leafy vegetables including spinach, collards, and kale. It is also available in broccoli, corn, peas, papayas, and oranges.Flavonoids: They are polyphenolic compounds and have antioxidant properties. Green tea, grapes (wine), apple cocoa (chocolate), soybean, curcuma, berries, onion, and broccoli are primary natural source of flavonoids.Dr. Tapan Kumar Sau2 Likes10 Answers

TYPE 3 DIABETES / ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE People that have insulin resistance, in particular those with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of suffering from Alzheimer's disease estimated to be between 50% and 65% higher. The researchers pinpoint resistance to insulin and insulin-like growth factor as being a key part of the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. This same research also showed that AD was treatable with insulin sensitizing agents. Instead of having insulin resistance in the muscle, liver, and fat cells, we can develop insulin resistance in the brain.More recent studies show people with diabetes have a four-fold risk for developing Alzheimer's. People with pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome have an increased risk for having pre-dementia or mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Type 3 diabetes is a title that has been proposed for Alzheimer's disease which results from resistance to insulin in the brain. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DEMENTIA & ALZHEIMER'S The terms dementia and Alzheimer’s are not interchangeable. The physical ailments the conditions cause (memory loss in particular) may seem similar. However the terms differ and are worth noting. Dementia is not a specific disease. It’s an overall term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory. It can also effect other thinking skills enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Dementia is often incorrectly referred to as “senility” or “senile dementia”. The error reflects the widespread, incorrect belief that serious mental decline is a normal part of aging. Alzheimer’s, however (also called Senile Dementia of the Alzheimer Type (SDAT) or simply Alzheimer’s) is a disease. It is the most common cause of dementia. The disease produces physical change in the brain. There is shrinking in some areas of the brain and widening in the others. This causes connections inside the brain to break and disrupt the brain’s electrical signals. Dementia can also be caused by a variety of other factors, but Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 50 to 80 percent of the cases. Vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common type. However, there are many other conditions that can cause symptoms of dementia. Some of these are reversible, such as thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies. How Alzheimer’s is Diagnosed It is important to note that there is no single test that can diagnose Alzheimer’s. At one time, an Alzheimer’s diagnosis was only able to be confirmed after a person had died and doctors were able to perform an autopsy on the brain. Today, a physician can diagnose Alzheimer’s disease with 90% accuracy while the person is still living. A medical evaluation will often include : ■ Patient History. ■ Physical Exam & Lab Tests. ■ Neuropsychological Testing While the diagnosis process can seem daunting, the benefits of early diagnosis can not be overstated. Be on the lookout for these signs of Alzheimer’s and take action quickly if necessary.Dr. Girish Dahake5 Likes8 Answers
