Early Menopause Symptons

LADY is most often unexpected and sometimes confusing, what early menopause is? UNDWERSTANDING what causes it can help ease you through this transition in your life.

Early Menopause
Early menopause is related directly to age, regardless of the cause. A woman under the age of 45 who has early menopause has not had a period in at least 12 months. The average age of women is 51.

The primary sign of early menopause is the year passing between periods. In addition, you can have a test to measure the levels of follicle stimulating hormone, or FSH, in your bloodstream. Since levels of this hormone increase when your ovaries stop producing estrogen during the ovulation cycle, a high level of FSH may indicate that you have early menopause. However, the levels of this hormone can fluctuate, so you may have to have the test done more than once to confirm the results.

Causes of Early Menopause
Hysterectomies, the removal of the uterus, and oophorectomies, the removal of the ovaries, can lead to early menopause if these operations were performed on younger women. Normally speaking, however, a woman will continue to produce adequate hormones to prevent early menopause if she can keep one functioning ovary.

Cancer treatments can also result in early menopause. Even light doses of chemotherapy or radiation experienced over a short period of time can trigger temporary early menopause. In this case, many women are infertile when ovulation starts again.

Autoimmune diseases can cause premature menopause. If you have an autoimmune disease, your body’s immune system literally attacks itself. If you have an autoimmune disease that goes after your reproductive system, you may experience early menopause.

Early menopause can also run in families. If you have a close relative that has had early menopause, you are at a higher risk of also developing it.

Other Causes of Early Menopause
If you suspect that you have early menopause, see your primary physician. Early menopause symptoms may actually be caused by other medical problems, such as thyroid disease, pituitary disorders or Cushing’s disease, so getting to the bottom of your condition is very important.

Symptoms of Menopause
In addition to changes in the timing of your menstrual cycle, symptoms of menopause can include:

* Weight gain
* Hot flashes
* Night sweats
* Insomnia
* Heavier or lighter menstrual flows
* Mood changes
* Anxiety
* Depression

What is CAM?....Complementary and Alternative Medicine

What is CAM?

Today, many people use complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM, for a wide variety of diseases or conditions, and use of CAM has increased in recent years.

But what exactly is CAM, and how is it different from standard medical care?

Complementary medicine is used together with standard medical care. An example is using acupuncture to help with side effects of cancer treatment.

Alternative medicine is used in place of standard medical care. An example is treating heart disease with chelation (pronounced "kee-lay-shen") therapy (which seeks to remove excess metals from the blood) instead of using a standard approach.

A related concept, "integrative medicine," is a total approach to care that involves the patient's mind, body, and spirit. It combines standard medical treatments with CAM practices that have shown the most promise.

An example is taking an omega-3 fatty acid supplement in addition to a prescription statin medication to reduce cholesterol.

Experts group CAM practices into four major categories. These are

  • biologically based practices
  • energy medicine
  • manipulative and body-based practices
  • mind-body medicine.

These four categories sometimes overlap.

Another term, "whole medical systems", refers to complete systems of care that have evolved over time in different cultures and parts of the world. Whole medical systems may include practices from the four major CAM categories.

Do you consume enough water everyday?……….helps to avoid infected by vulnerable diseases!!!!!

DRINKING enough water is important in ensuring a healthy lifestyle.

Normally, our body needs 60 - 70% water since the blood is in liquid form. Similar with our organs, livers and brains contain a lot of water.

Even if you look at the whole world, it consist more water than the land. It is a mother nature that we are lucky enough to have huge seas, lakes, rivers and rains from the clouds.

Our body needs water to stabilize heats, supply nutrients to the organs, provides oxygen to the cells, detoxification while not forgetting also it protects your joints and organs.

You MUST realize that a lot of water being discharged through urination, breathing and sweats. Those who are active in sports tend to lose MORE water than those who are not active.

COFFEE contains cafein. Thus Coffee Lovers need to consume extra water because the cafein will dry up easily since you urinate quite often.

Should your body contains insufficient water, you will:

· Suffer chronic Joints and Muscle Pain

· Lower back pain

· Headache, and

· Thirsty

· Smelly and yellowish urine which is a symptom of dehydration

You need to replenish the water in your body before you feel thirsty.

Simple calculation on how much water is required by your body – your weight divided by 2; the result is converted into ounces. It tells you how many ounces you need to drink water daily.

As an example, if your weight is 150 lbs then you will to drink 75 ounces of water every day. If you are active in “physical exercise”, you will have to consume additional 8 ounces of water once in every 20 minutes.

Should you be in a long journey, it is advisable for you to drink 8 ounces of water for every hour while you are in the aircraft or any vehicle.

You need extra 2 ounces of water should you be in a dry and hot environment. As an example above, you will now need 77 ounces of water.

Not all water comes from the water that you consume but about 20% of the water is obtained from the food that you eat every day. Drinking mineral water has always been the best way as compared to drinking carbonated drink which contains high sugar contents and calories.

What is Diabetes?

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes is a mystery, although both genetics and environment appear to play roles.

There are two major types of diabetes:

Insulin-Dependent (type 1).

An autoimmune disease in which the body does not produce any insulin, most often occurring in children and young adults. People with type 1 diabetes must take daily insulin injections to stay alive.

Non-Insulin-Dependent (type 2).

A metabolic disorder resulting from the body's inability to make enough or properly use insulin, it is the most common form of the disease.

Who Is At Greater Risk For Type 1 Diabetes?

Siblings of people with type 1 diabetes. Children of parents with type 1 diabetes.

Who Is At Greater Risk For Type 2 Diabetes?
  • People with a family history of diabetes.
  • People who are overweight.
  • People who do not exercise regularly.
  • Women who have had a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds at birth.
Warning Signs Of Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes:
  • Frequent urination.
  • Unusual thirst.
  • Extreme hunger.
  • Unusual weight loss.
  • Extreme fatigue.
  • Irritability.
Type 2 Diabetes:

  • Any of the type 1 symptoms, plus...
  • Frequent infections.
  • Blurred vision.
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal.
  • Tingling/numbness in the hands or feet.
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections.
Profile Of The Diagnosed

There are nearly 1.2 million people in Malaysia who have diabetes. Diabetes is actually a general term for a number of separate but related disorders. These disorders fall into two main categories:

  • type 1, which usually occurs during childhood or adolescence, and
  • type 2, the most common form of the disease, usually occurring after age 30.
What is type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes?

Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes is a disease which results from the body's failure to produce insulin -- the hormone that "unlocks" the cells of the body, allowing glucose to enter and fuel them.

This is most often the result of an autoimmune process in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Since glucose cannot enter the cells, it builds up in the blood and the body's cells literally starve to death.

People with type 1 diabetes must take daily insulin injections and regularly monitor blood sugar levels.

There are an estimated 24,000 people with type 1 diabetes in Malaysia today.

The risk of developing type 1 diabetes is higher than virtually all other severe chronic diseases of childhood.

Peak incidence occurs during puberty, around 10 to 12 years old in girls and 12 to 14 years old in boys. The symptoms for type 1 diabetes can mimic the flu in children.

Type 1 diabetes tends to run in families. Brothers and sisters of children with insulin-dependent diabetes have about a 10% chance, or a 20-fold increased risk, of developing the disease.

The identical twin of a person with insulin-dependent (type 1) diabetes has at least 50 times the risk of developing type 1 diabetes than a child in an unaffected family.

In type 1 diabetes, incidence is highest among whites. Scandinavian countries have the highest incidence in the world, approximately 30 cases per 100,000 children.

What is type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes?

Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes results from the body's inability to make enough or properly use insulin. Often type 2 diabetes can be controlled through diet and exercise alone, but sometimes these are not enough and either oral medications or insulin must be used.

The fact that few people with type 2 diabetes require insulin has led to the myth that this is a "mild" form of the disease.

Of the nearly 1.2 million Malaysians with diabetes, more than 98% have type 2 diabetes.

People with type 2 diabetes often develop the disease after age 30, but are not aware they have diabetes until treated for one of its serious complications.

The risk for type 2 diabetes increases with age.

Studies indicate that diabetes is generally under reported on death certificates, particularly in the cases of older persons with multiple chronic conditions such as heart disease and hypertension. Because of this, the toll of diabetes is believed to be much higher than officially reported.

Diabetes In Youth

How Are Young People Affected?

The risk of developing type 1 diabetes is higher than virtually all other severe chronic diseases of childhood.

Peak incidence occurs during puberty, around 10 to 12 years old in girls and 12 to 14 years old in boys.

Type 1 diabetes tends to run in families. Brothers and sisters of children with type 1 diabetes have about a 10 percent chance, or a 20-fold increased risk, of developing the disease.

The identical twin of a person with type 1 diabetes has at least 50 times the risk of developing type 1 diabetes than a child in an unaffected family.

In type 1 diabetes, incidence is highest among whites. Scandinavian countries have the highest incidence in the world, approximately 30 cases per 100,000 children.

The symptoms for type 1 diabetes can mimic the flu in children.

Diabetes And Seniors

How Are Seniors Affected?

Diabetes prevalence increases with increasing age.

Approximately half of all diabetes cases occur in people older than 55.

People with diabetes are more likely to be institutionalized in nursing homes than are people without diabetes.

Breast Cancer

Cancer patients may be able to fight chemotherapy-induced nausea using a common pantry spice -- ginger.Those taking the two lowest doses of ginger reported greater relief than those taking the highest dose, however, so taking more of the spice isn't necessarily better.In the new study, 644 people -- mostly breast-cancer patients -- were given supplements twice a day for six days, including the three days before and after they started chemotherapy. The patients took 0.5, 1, or 1.5 grams of ginger daily, which was divided into two doses, or they took identical placebo supplements that contained no ginger. Ginger-taking patients -- regardless of daily dose -- reported a greater reduction in nausea on the first day of treatment than those taking a placebo."If we can reduce nausea on day one, then patients tend to have reduced nausea throughout treatment," says lead study author Julie L. Ryan, of the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York. About 70 percent of cancer patients experience nausea during chemotherapy, although anti-emetic drugs often help prevent actual vomiting.In the largest study of its kind to date, researchers found that a smidgen of purified ginger given in supplement form --equivalent to one-quarter teaspoon to one-half teaspoon of the spice each day -- could reduce chemotherapy-related nausea by 40 percent on the first day of treatment when used in combination with traditional anti-nausea medications.

"It's an interesting and rigorous study in the field of complementary medicine, and an important step forward in improving quality of care for the 70 percent of patients who undergo chemotherapy and experience nausea and vomiting," says Dr. Douglas Blayney, president-elect at the American Society of Clinical Oncology.Prior research had suggested that ginger supplements couldn't reduce nausea during chemotherapy, but Ryan says timing is everything: By giving the supplement three days prior to treatment--which had not been done in previous studies--the anti-inflammatory property of ginger had a head start on quashing queasiness.

Dr. Ted Gansler, director of medical content for the American Cancer Society, says complementary therapies such as ginger may work for some patients, but "most oncologists would not recommend counting on them as alternatives--especially for those receiving chemotherapy drugs known to cause the most severe nausea and vomiting."

If you're feeling queasy, Ryan says, consuming fresh ginger root from the grocery store can help, but purified capsules may work better due to their easier absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. In theory, ginger-containing products such as ginger ale, ginger snaps, and other products could reduce nausea, too, but only if they contained real ginger root, not just ginger flavoring.
Ginger has few side effects, but it could interfere with blood clotting and cause excessive bleeding, says Dr. Gansler. Consult your doctor before taking any supplement.

When dealing with chemotherapy-induced nausea--or any upset stomach--the American Cancer Society recommends eating dry foods such as pretzels and sipping on--you guessed it--ginger ale.
The study was funded by the National Cancer Institute.

Chemotherapy may cause nausea, which may be alleviated through ginger, a new study says.

The findings were released Thursday and will be presented later this month at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting.

"We were surprised to find that the lowest doses were the most effective. I am guessing that at one gram the gut reaches maximum absorption," Ryan says.

The reduction in nausea was substantial, she says. The patients taking a placebo reported about a four or five on a seven-point nausea scale, meaning they were extremely nauseated. In comparison, ginger-taking patients tended to report one or two, which is little to no nausea. The supplements reduced vomiting by roughly 5 percent in the study, says Ryan, but very few of the patients had any vomiting due to the anti-emetic drugs they were taking.

Studies have suggested that ginger can also quell nausea caused by pregnancy, motion sickness, and anesthesia.
