लेसिक आई सर्जरी के फायदे और नुकसान



आंखें कुदरत की ओर से दी गई सबसे कीमती उपहार हैं। ये जितनी कीमती हैं, उतनी ही संवेदनशील भी हैं। इसलिए तो लोग आंखों का विशेष ख्याल रखते हैं और थोड़ा भी सरदर्द होने पर तुरंत डॉक्टर से जांच करवाते हैं। पहले लोग आंखों की समस्या से निज़ात पाने के लिए चश्मा पहनते थे। लेकिन चश्मा एक बार चढ़ गया तो जिंदगी भर लगाना पड़ता है। लेकिन विकसित होती तकनीक ने आंखों के उपचार को आसान कर दिया है। आजकल डॉक्टर चश्मा लगाने वाले को लेसिक सर्जरी करने की हिदायत देते हैं और लोग लेसिक सर्जरी का फायदा भी उठा रहे हैं। लेसिक सर्जरी कराने से पहले डॉक्टर से परामर्श जरूर लें। आइए इस लेख में लेसिक सर्जरी के फायदे और नुकसान के बारे में जानते हैं। 

क्‍या है लेसिक सर्जरी 

जो लोग चश्मा पहनते हैं और जिनका पावर -1 से -10 के बीच है, उन्हें तुरंत आंखों की लेसिक सर्जरी करवानी चाहिए। जांच में देख लें कि आपके कॉर्निया की थिकनेस कैसी है। जितनी अधिक थिकनेस होगी इस सर्जरी का फायदा उतना अधिक होगा। साथ ही लेसिक सर्जरी की सबसे अच्छी बात है कि ये अन्य दूसरी सर्जरी की तुलना में ज्यादा आसान और बेहतर है। यह सस्ती होती है और इसमें कॉर्निया को नुकसान पहुंचने का खतरा न के बराबर होता है। जबकि दूसरी सर्जरी में कॉर्निया पर खतरा ज्यादा रहता है। 


लेसिक सर्जरी के फायदे 
लेसिक सर्जरी 30 मिनट या उससे कम समय में हो जाती है। साथ ही यह सर्जरी आंखों के लिए काफी प्रभावी और कारगार मानी गई है, जिस कारण अधिकतर लोग आंखों के लिए लेसिक सर्जरी करने की हिदायत देते हैं। 
92-98% लोग आंखों की समस्या से निजात पाने के लिए लेसिक सर्जरी का ही सहारा लेते हैं, क्योंकि ये आंखों की दृष्टि के लिए काफी फायदेमंद होती है और किसी भी अन्य सर्जरी की तुलना में आसान और किफायती होती है। 
लेसिक सर्जरी दृष्टि से जुड़ी सभी समस्याओं और खतरों को काफी हद तक दूर कर देती है। 

लेसिक सर्जरी के नुकसान
लेसिक सर्जरी आंखों के सबसे संवेदनशील हिस्से में की जाती है और इसे दोबारा नहीं किया जा सकता है। 
लेसिक सर्जरी के कुछ दिनों के बाद ही लोगों को पढ़ने के लिए तो चश्मे की जरूरत पड़ती ही है। 
सबसे बड़ा खतरा लेसिक सर्जरी का ये है कि, ये आपकी इंश्योरेंस पॉलिसी का हिस्सा नहीं होता। मतलब की इस सर्जरी के दौरान अगर आपकी आंखों को कुछ होता है तो इसकी जिम्मेदारी न डॉक्टर की और न इंश्योरेंस विभाग की होगी। 

आंखें अनमोल हैं, इसलिए इससे जुड़ी किसी भी तरह की सर्जरी कराने से पहले चिकित्‍सक की सलाह जरूर लें।

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) – The Silent Killer

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) – The Silent Killer – The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.

What is High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.
You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke.

World diabetes day: 66% Indian children have abnormal sugar levels



Diabetes is a condition where the body can’t maintain the right amount of glucose in the blood. When you eat rice, it breaks down more slowly to glucose and can therefore ensure sugar is more evenly released over time, rather than all at once.

About 66.11% of children in India have “abnormal levels of sugar” in their body, according to a nation level survey.

Diabetes Drug May Reduce Heart Failure Risk: Study

Washington: A new type 2 diabetes drug may significantly reduce hospitalisations and death from heart failure, a new study has claimed.

Many individuals with type 2 diabetes also have heart failure, a condition in which the heart fails to pump blood effectively.

Treatment for heart failure is limited and prior efforts to treat patients with type 2 diabetes drugs showed no benefit for heart failure.

But a new class of type 2 diabetes drugs (SGLT2 inhibitors) that reduce blood sugar by increasing its excretion in the urine had not been studied.

In a large clinical trial known as EMPA-REG OUTCOME, patients with type 2 diabetes and risk factors for heart disease were randomised to receive once-daily doses of either the glucose-lowering drug empagliflozin (10mg or 25mg doses), or a placebo. The drug or placebo was given in addition to standard care.

At the end of the trial period, researchers, including Silvio E Inzucchi, professor at the Yale University in US, found that patients treated with the drug experienced reductions in blood sugar and blood pressure, as well as weight loss, compared to those on placebo.

They also found significant reductions in hospitalisations for heart failure (35 per cent); the combined result for heart failure hospitalisation or dying from heart disease (34 per cent); and the combined result for being hospitalised or dying from heart failure (39 per cent).

Additionally, Inzucchi and colleagues analysed outcomes for subgroups of patients who had heart failure at the beginning of the trial and those who did not.

“We found that reductions in the hospitalisation outcomes were similar between the two subgroups,” he said.

“So, one conclusion that could be proposed is that the drug not only appeared to prevent deterioration in patients who already had heart failure but also appeared to prevent that condition from developing in patients who never had it before,” he said.

Chocolate, pizza among `most addictive food'



NEW YORK: Chocolate and pizza are one of the most addictive food, according to a new study which found that these highly processed food are closely linked to eating disorders or behaviours that mimic addiction. A research team from the University of Michigan and Columbia University looked into common addictive food. 

The team analysed 35 different food items and surveyed 120 undergraduates at the University of Michigan and around 400 adults. The team used the Yale Food Addiction Scale, developed by psychologist and lead author of the study Ashley Gearhardt, to assess food addiction risk. 

Chocolate topped the list of foods that are most addictive. It was followed by favourites such as ice cream, French fries, pizza and cookies, Tech Times reported. Cheese, bacon, pretzels, fried chicken, soda and cake also made it to he top 20 list.

Do you know why physical workout is crucial for Brain Health



Are you working out enough? As a new study suggests that regular exercise can slow down brain ageing and is good for a healthy brain. Daily workout is especially crucial for old age people as it prevents diseases like memory that affect cognitive function. Exercise in any form, whether it is to grow muscle or just a regular exercise, it can help in making a stronger brain connections. Exercises can have positive effect on brain and significantly improve cognitive functions. According to researchers, physical activity can improve the release of hormones that triggers brain development and can keep your brain sharp even at old age.

Lead study author Hideaki Soya along with his colleagues from the University of Tsukuba, Japan tried to find an interlink between brain health, cognitive function, physical fitness and the role of exercises. Researchers knew that young people use right side of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) for temporary storage and manipulation while older people use both right and left side of PFC for the same. The study authors conducted to study to check whether physical exercises enabled brain at older to retain some properties of young brains.

People who live in the present are less likely to have belly fat and to become obese, according to a US study.

Previous studies have shown that knowing your body leads to real physical benefits ranging from a reduction in stress to protection for the heart.

A team of researchers at Brown University Public School of Health in the US discovered that a low level of attention given to the present has an impact on the body, particularly fat stored around the waist.

Bipolar Disorder: 10 steps on the road to recovery



How does the path to managing Bipolar Disorder unfold?
Managing Bipolar Disorder is a long, uphill climb which few have the wherewithal for.

Tread carefully, for this is uncharted territory. Indeed, managing Bipolar Disorder, while eminently doable, remains a challenge, as would have been apparent from my article on World Mental Health Day. It is a long, uphill climb which few have the wherewithal for. So, if we were to break it up in steps, how would the path unfold, from a layman's perspective? The known enemy becomes easier to deal with than the unknown one. Only if I had the benefit of all this knowledge 15 years ago...
