Being a Women

“Behind every successful man there is a woman”. Not only in the case of a man but this saying stands for the functioning of the whole world. She is said to be the ultimate strength and support behind the success of an individual. There is a lot of differenciation and discrimination in the name of gender as males and females. Nevertheless this difference do exist in nature from time immemorial.

A female draws out various characteristics which is different from that of a male, varying from factors such as physical, mental. biological and reproductive. These are inborn and inbuilt right from the time a mother concieves a female child.
Womanhood is the period in a females life after she has passed through childhood and adolescence, generally around the age 18. Women have three very important physiological functions totally absent in men--menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation.Each of these mechanisms influences the behavioural patterns of a female greatly.
Another such noticable factor could be psycological.
Women prefer to share and care more, she would discuss and figure out a solution for a problem which they face by discussing it with her friends. She is more emotionally depended and possess aa emotional mind when compared to that of men. But men on the other hand seem to be independent and keep things more to themselves. But unfortunately, women are more prone to different types of depressions due to their emotional weakness.
Communication skills and emotional intelligence are found to be better in females. They tend to be more group-oriented.
Women can be, and many are, greatly affected by hormone fluctuations. Hormonal changes in female body is much more prominant and undergoes changes as the age advances. The main two hormones generated in female body are estrogen and progestrone. Estrogen helps the uterus grow, maintains the uterine lining to protect the budding baby. Progesterone has characteristics that balance and counteract the adverse effects that estrogen can have.Progesterone is important mainly for the preparation of the endometrium for implantation of the egg during pregnancy and the maintenance of pregnancy.
women are more often portrayed as being under the influence of their hormones, as being subject to hormonal tides or hormonal storms.

Women face many injustices and inequalities globally, both in terms of economic factors and human rights. An often overlooked aspect of this phenomenon is their health, so its atmost important that proper diet and care are taken as far as female health is concerned.
A healthy diet can help reduce PMS(pre-menstrual syndrome), boost fertility, make pregnancy and nursing easier. It provides one with energy, maintaining weight and keeps you looking good.

God has created women in such a way that, she can take her generation forward by giving birth to new offsprings. The ideal time to start learning about pregnancy is not when a woman is already pregnant but much before that.
For a woman, pregnancy planning means learning everything she can about how her own health and that of her baby can be optimized. She is capable of conceiving from the time she attains puberty till the time of menopause.
A female body is also highly prone to diseases too due to its sensitive features or even due to malnutrition which leads to less immunity. Many such diseases are gallstones, migraine headaches,
osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure(hypertension) etc.
Women with Osteoporosis have weak bones which tend to break. Osteoporosis in the vertebrae can cause serious problems for women. A fracture in this area occurs from day-to-day activities like climbing stairs, lifting objects, or bending forward

 

Research has also revealed the genetic and molecular basis of a number of gender-based differences in health and disease, some of which are related to genotype — XX in the female and XY in the male.
Due to such less immune resistance women have got higher chances of developing Autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases can affect virtually every site in the body.

Autoimmune diseases affect approximately 8% of the population, 78% of whom are women. It is still unkown as to what reasons are there behind such a prevalence. One of the factors behind it could be genetic as it can be passed on from a mother to her offspring.

Young kids often given wrong medication

One child is affected every eight minutes when usually a well-meaning parent or caregiver commits an unintentional medication error, said a US-based study.
The researchers found that 63,000 children under the age of six experienced out-of-hospital medication errors annually between 2002 and 2012.

Instances in which these mistakes can occur include caregivers giving one child the same medication twice, misreading dosage instructions or administering the wrong medication.

"This is more common than people may realise," said senior study author Huiyun Xiang from the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio, US.

"The numbers we report still underestimate the true magnitude of these incidents since these are just cases reported to national poison centres," Huiyun added.

The most common medication mistakes occur among children under the age of six in the children's home, or another residence and school.

The most common medicines involved are painkillers and fever reducers like ibuprofen and acetaminophen."We found that younger children are more apt to experience error than older children, with children under the age of one accounting for 25 percent of incidents," concluded Huiyun. The study appeared in the journal Pediatrics.

Another problem with giving medicine to children is the ease of making a mistake, experts warn. There are myriad potential causes, from adults getting confused about an appropriate dose for children, kids’ own imperfect memories over whether they already had a dose, or the simple exhaustion that comes with being a parent.

Taking medication to newer level

A craftsman made a living duplicate of Vincent Van Gogh's ear utilizing a 3-D printer. It may not set the craftsmanship world on its ear, yet 3-D printing could take drug to another level. It is now yielded skin, bone, veins, heart and liver, and also made-to-request non-natural appendages and surgical implants. Furthermore, an ear, developed from the DNA of van Gogh's sibling's great grandson. Right now it is possible with working human organs.

One day you'll have the capacity to regrow lost bone. Body shops - those that handle the repair of harmed and broken-down people, not autos - will have parts more approaches to settle your case. Researchers now can make exclusively fitted molds for parts of your skeleton and joints. They utilize stem cells of adult to develop bone and ligament to fill in shabby or broken, repair breaks, and seal the cracks.

Shots loaded with to a great degree small robots may get to be a piece of your yearly health schedule. Nanobots, littler than cells, can be customized to act like robocops to protect against infections and mutated cells, to search them in the body and to free you of intruders. Later on, specialists will draw robot-rich arrangements into syringes and infuse them into your body. These protectors will shroud themselves to survive your defense mechanism and after that make and convey medication.

Not long from now, here is the manner by which treatment will enhance for a wide range of growth. Specialists can as of now distinguish qualities that cause numerous sorts of acquired disease and they are endeavoring to nail down the rest. Medications tomorrow will be more customized, custom-made, and intended to hit the exact targets - from cells to the molecules inside them. The reactions of new medications will be a great deal less extreme than today's chemo.

Artificial pancreas can treat diabetes efficiently

An external artificial pancreas can help improve the glucose control and Type-1 diabetes as per a recent study. This has paved it's way against the conventional diabetes treatment. Type-1 diabetes can lead to major health issues such as cardiovascular ailments, vision loss, etc that arises from the autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells present in the pancreas, that ultimately leads to increased amount of glucose in urine and blood.

The external artificial pancreas comprises of an auto mated system that helps stimulate the normal functioning of pancreas by continuously adapting insulin delivery based on the variations in the glucose levels.

Two configurations exist: The single-hormone artificial pancreas that delivers insulin alone and the dual-hormone artificial pancreas that delivers both insulin and glucagon. While insulin lowers blood glucose levels, glucagon has the opposite effect and raises glucose levels.

The study also confirms that the artificial pancreas systems enhances and improves the glucose control and also lessens the risk of hypoglycemia in comparison to conventional pump therapy. The researchers compared the dual-hormone artificial pancreas, the single-hormone artificial pancreas and the conventional insulin pump therapy in 30 adult and adolescent patients with Type-1 diabetes, who had been using an insulin pump for at least three months. With the early generation on continuous glucose control levels, the technology should be made available commercially.

How we watch TV can help detect eye related issues

Scientists have come out with a new way to find out eye related problems, by examining how your eyes respond to viewing TV. Researchers based at City University London have found out that they could identify illness such as glaucoma by just having a look at the maps of a person movement of eye while they watched a film or a movie.

Just before the beginning or onset of a permanent damage, the researchers could help find a diagnosis, that would help the clinicians to identify the disease priorly and that allows treatment to begin before the initial stage of permanent damage.

Affecting around 65 million people worldwide, glaucoma describes a group of eye conditions that result in progressive damage to the optic nerve which connects the retina to the brain, causing people to gradually lose vision.

The team led by Professor David Crabb along with Dr Nicholas Smith and Dr Haogang Zhu, compared a group of 32 elderly people with healthy vision to 44 patients with a clinical diagnosis of glaucoma. Both groups underwent standard vision examinations and disease severity was also measured for the group with clinical diagnoses. Participants were then subjected to three unmodified TV and movie clips on a computer when an eye tracking equipment recorded all eye movement and basically the direction in which people were looking.

Professor Crabb said that once the damage is done it cannot be reversed, so early diagnosis would be vital for identifying a disease which would get more prevalent as the population ages.The paper is published in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience.

Study identifies genetic mutation in those who behave reckless when drunk

University of Helsinki researchers have identified a genetic mutation which renders carriers susceptible to particularly impulsive and reckless behavior when drunk. More than one hundred thousand Finns carry this mutation. Many Finns know somebody whose behavior becomes excessively strange and erratic when drunk. They are said to be unable to "hold their liquor," and others are surprised at how inebriated they become from just a small amount of alcohol. Since the trait seems permanent, it can be assumed that there are underlying biological factors.

If these results prove significant in larger clinical samples of individual patients who suffer greatly from difficulties in impulse control, several preventive measures could be taken. The most important measure would obviously be controlling the consumption of alcohol. Other measures would include attempting to achieve control over behavior through cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy or medication.

Apart from the putative effect on the health of Finnish population, the discovery of this biological mechanism may be groundbreaking in understanding the role of the serotonin 2B receptor in humans. Novel neurobiological research is becoming increasingly aware of the fact that the expression of a gene -- that is, the gene's production of proteins can be affected in various ways. The findings may elucidate the role of the serotonin 2B receptor in the health of any given population. Moreover, increasing knowledge of the function of the serotonin 2B receptor may lead to new pharmacological innovations, since no medications specific to it are presently available.

The discovery is based on long-term research cooperation between the University of Helsinki Psychiatry Clinic and the Dr David Goldman's laboratory of Neurogenetics at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the United States.
