Treatments for Bipolar Disorder

There are several treatments have been proven effective to control and to minimize the effect of this mental condition. The real problem is that many people failed to understand that they need help for bipolar disorder and instead, they are looking treatment only for the symptoms they have on a certain phase like using antidepressant when they are in depressive phase and stop them when enters the manic phase.

The right treatment for bipolar disorder must treat both manic and depressive phases. It requires a professional psychiatrist or psychologist to diagnose the severe level of bipolar disorder and to recommend the right treatment for the actual condition. It can’t be denied that treating condition like manic disorder requires medication and the medication must be administered in both phase not only on the depressive phase like what most people think. The kind of medication often used for treating this condition are known as the older and newer types. Older type is commonly known as mood booster used to treat certain symptoms. The new type of medication is known as atypical antipsychotics. It works to relieve greater symptoms but it also comes with greater side effects.

How the medication administered can be categorized in three steps. The first one is acute treatment that focuses on treating the current symptoms and the goal is to stop the symptoms. The second one is continuation treatment to prevent the return of the symptom and the last one is maintenance treatment to maintain the good condition and prevent the risk of reoccurrence. Severe state of bipolar disorder that leads to life threatening condition must be treated in psychiatric facility under medical monitoring. With the right treatment, people with bipolar disorder can minimize the effect of the condition to get a full quality of life.

Understanding Bipolar Disorder Symptoms

Everyone can feel different moods and even several things can drastically change our mood. For people with bipolar disorder, mood changes can be very extreme and even worse, it is beyond their control. Bipolar disorder or manic depression is known for its series of extreme moods that can be last for weeks but actually there are several symptoms of this mental disorder and having knowledge about those symptoms can help people to recognize the problem on their selves or their loved ones.

What makes bipolar disorder difficult to diagnose is the symptoms are related to many thing sand even mostly related with our normal emotions. The state of the symptoms is what important. During the manic episode, there are several symptoms related to manic depression and they are including very high enthusiasm, high confidence and high self-esteem, lack of sleep, fast talking, and aggressive behavior. This state is also related to losing appetite or weight loss. In the depressive episode, the symptoms are ranging from low self-esteem, guilty feeling, feeling sadness and feeling hopeless. In this phase, it would be difficult to concentrate, lack of energy and lack of enthusiasm, and often talking about death.

The sign of bipolar disorder will show when the mood swings takes long time like several weeks of manic episode followed by several weeks of depression. In most people, mood swings usually takes only few days. The difficult thing is to distinguish the depressive episode of bipolar disorder with a depression problem. That’s why many people with underlying sign of bipolar disorder are treated with antidepressant that triggers manic episode to occur. It requires thorough interview session with mental health professionals like psychiatrist or psychologist to get a comprehensive diagnoses on how severe the condition is and advice on what kind of treatment must be conducted.

 

Risk Factors of Bipolar Disoirder

Bipolar disorder is one of mental disorders that become very popular, thanks to movies and drama series often picture characters with this condition. In the real world, people with bipolar disorder may suffer lots more. Although this mental condition is already known for long and there are many methods of treatment have been conducted, there’s still lack of knowledge about the real root of bipolar disorder.

Even after years of researches, there’s not a single exact cause of bipolar disorder known and recognized. However, there are several factors that is considered responsible to manic depression occurrence.

The first factor is genetic factor. It is based on the facts that most people with this condition have family member with sign of mood disorder and people with bipolar disorder parent have bigger risk to suffer from this condition.

Neurochemical is the second factor. It is based on the thought that biological defect on certain area of the brain caused by neurochemical dysfunction. Those chemicals responsible to the changes of mood.

Another factor for bipolar disorder is the environment. The environment and mostly the social life can trigger the onset of manic depression. Bad lifestyle such as drugs abuse can also trigger this condition.

Last but not least is the medication. Yes, it sounds odd but medication especially antidepressant can trigger series of manic depression. There are various types of medications with side effect triggering manic episodes on people with underlying bipolar depression factor.

Understanding the factors help people to become more concern about this condition.

It also helps you to get the right treatment when you actually has bigger risk of this mental condition to keep having a full of life.

 

 

What Bipolar Disorder Really Is

There some movies or drama series picturing someone with bipolar disorder as the character but unfortunately, who the movies picture people with bipolar disorder may not really accurate and it is partly responsible to the misleading thought among people about this mental condition including a bad stereotype about it.

It would be much wiser for us all to have a better understanding about bipolar disorder. Also widely known as manic depression, it is a mental condition causing someone to have constantly changing moods. The change can be huge opposite from the once before and it can last for as short as few hours to days or even weeks. This mental condition got its name from two episodes of very opposite moods shown when the attack comes. The first one is called manic episode representing extreme enthusiasm and happiness. On this episode, the one suffering with bipolar disorder will show hyperactivity and little need of speed. Rapid speech is also a sign of this episode. The other episode is known as depressive episode and this episode is shown with depressing sadness and feeling of uselessness and hopelessness. It is much easier to picture bipolar disorder as emotional roller coaster.

Living with this kind of mental issue can be really frustrating. It is very hard to know when the attack will come and it makes dealing with everyday life can be much thought. Every episodes of manic depression cause fatal risks. In manic episode can relate with doing high risk activities while in the depressive episode, there’s risk of suicidal. The symptoms of this condition can grows slowly up to few years and usually the manic depression attack is recurring. Knowing the symptoms earlier would give lots of benefits to get early treatment to prevent the problem to grow worse. When it is left untreated, it would like a time bomb inside a person.

 

Causes and Ways to Manage High Levels of Triglyceride

diabetes-and-heart-diseaseIt is becoming common for people in this day and age to have high levels of Triglyceride. Triglyceride loosely defined, is the containment of fat in your blood (also referred to as Lipid). Fat – although needed by the body- if too much, can make you become prone of heart attacks, strokes and other health issues.

What are the effects of high Triglyceride?

Triglyceride does not directly cause plaques that can clog the blood stream to the heart (Atherosclerosis) and cause a heart attack ; but the cholesterol in your Triglyceride which is particle-rich in your blood stream can increase the formation of plaques significantly.

High level of Triglyceride is partially a part of a metabolic syndrome, which is a group of risks that have a high potential to increase possibilities of heart attacks and diabetes. High levels of Triglyceride however will effectively affect the condition of your heart and blood vessels. Triglyceride in levels that are too high can also increase the risk of Pancreatitis. The pancreas is the largest organ that creates the important hormone of the insulin. This helps your body maintain your sugar levels (glucose) to a healthy balance. Pancreatitis can also cause digestive illnesses or a tummy ache. If not provided immediate professional medical assistance, this can damage the pancreas permanently and further cause diabetes.

Factors that cause Triglyceride and its remedy:

Triglyceride will usually increase along with age. Its increase is caused by several factors as listed below:

Brian Sykes, Famous Geneticist, Uses DNA Testing to Track Bigfoot

bryan-sykes-genealogistBigfoot might not be a hoax after all. We have been doing our best to make sense of our world since we lived in caves and first looked up at the stars. It is in our DNA to do so. We have not always been right because we did not have enough information. As a result, we thought the world was flat for a long time, and we created stories about the thunder gods and how the stars affected our everyday lives. And sometimes we have thought something was a hoax, like the platypus, when it actually belonged in the realm of scientific reality. Though we are not accustomed to using Bigfoot in the same sentence with science, Brian Sykes, famous Oxford geneticist, has made insightful deductions about Yeti or Bigfoot and its Russian cousin, Zana, from DNA testing and other evidence. Sykes has determined with this evidence that what some of these people did see could be something that actually belongs in the realm of science. They just did not see a monster called Bigfoot.

What did they see? For one thing, Sykes does not think we are discussing one creature. He conducted extensive genetic testing on hairs and tissue samples from the jaw of a purported Yeti mummy and other specimens and declared that the Himalayan “Abominable Snowman” was some type of ancient, Artic bear though it could be an unknown type of bear or bear hybrid ( Ker Than, National Geographic, “Is the Abominable Snowman a Bear?”).

However, the Russian “Bigfoot” evidence is even more exciting than a possibly unknown type of bear. Sykes has made a bold theory in this case. He believes that “Zana,” who was captured in the Russian forest in the 19th century, might have been a slave that was a “remnant of an earlier human migration” and a representation of a “hitherto unknown human tribe.” DNA testing results show that her maternal line is Sub-Saharan African and human; however, Sykes says this is not the end of the story. This does not explain some of the primitive features of the skull of her son’s, Khwit according to Sykes. Despite this, she is not a Neanderthal either as some thought she might be. DNA testing results show she has as much Neanderthal as the rest of Europeans and Asians which is only 2-4% (shown when the Neanderthal genome was sequenced in 2010 and no doubt from early inbreeding). It is quite a DNA mystery, and we cannot wait for the end result and the published paper on this! (“Was Russian “Bigfoot” Actually an African Slave?”).

The Definition, Causes and Symptoms of Heart Attacks

In a health care plan, a family must anticipate some chronic diseases. It is to facilitate the treatment, healing and of course financing. In some ways, the threat of heart disease is experienced by most people in the world. Research shows that heart attack is the leading cause of death. This is a serious problem because there are many people who tend to forget or ignore this threat. Therefore, there are some basic things you need to understand about the heart, diseases, symptoms, diagnosis, cure and prevention. Meanwhile, there are several levels of the disease that can be treated with certain steps.

The Definition

heart attack1What is a heart attack? In simple terms, this is a condition when the blood flow to the heart suddenly stopped. You can imagine how the pain is pressing on the chest. As a result, the heart cells to die. The heart is the body part that consists of the cavity muscles. The heart rate produced by the air pressure and blood flow simultaneously. It is the organ that never stops working for twenty-four hours. When a heart attack occurs, a person will experience shortness of breath and pain in the chest. And if it takes place in the old state, the muscles will off and the risk is very deadly.

Typically, this occurs in elderly people. They have suffered from several diseases are interrelated and impact on arterial blockage. There are several types that strike the elderly such as coronary heart disease, hypertensive heart, heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and so on. For 3 decades, the death rate from coronary heart disease increased by 50 percent. But there are also other risk factors such as degenerative caused by stroke. However, this threat had probably the most elderly. Well, heart attack is a threat to people over a certain age. But do you know that there are many young people who had the same risk?

In the United States, one in five young men has this potential. Meanwhile, it was only a 1 in 17 women. Then, can we say that men have a tendency to more severe? It is not entirely appropriate because they have the same risks. After age 60, men and women should not ignore any risks that would threaten their heart. Therefore, there are a lot of consultation clinics that specifically address various issues concerningthe heart disease in young people. After that, they will remain do routine checkups.

The Common Causes

What causes a heart attack? Do you really want to know the answers? There are many causes of this disease. It would be very easy to find in the environment and our habits. Generally, people know it from smoking. However, you should know that smoking is not the only cause of heart attacks. Sometimes, there is someone who never smoked during life. But suddenly he had a heart attack. Elsewhere, a man who likes to smoke. But he never had a complaint on the heart. So, what really happened? Can it answer your curiosity? Actually, it won’t.

So, we will talk about the causes in several categories. They are age, history of disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and stress. For the age issue, we already had discussed earlier. However, one important thing to note is that when you are a man with over 45 years of age. You must be alert and always control your heart pressure. Meanwhile, women over 55 years should apply the same thing. It is all going to depend on the examination of physical factors. Thus, heart health can be controlled to prevent the severe risk of heart attack.

In a history of the disease, a person may suffer from a lot of things. Actually, it is a mild disease. But it could be a threat that will trigger a heart attack, especially if it is related to cholesterol. In this case, diabetes is a disease that is often feared to have a negative impact on the heart. You need to know that it can be very severe diabetes with blood sugar levels. But that’s not the cause of death. The most terrible thing is the history of heart complications due to these diseases. So, consider it carefully and never underestimate your medical history.

For the problem of smoking, we all know it. Smoking is a trivial habit that has always been the black sheep of a heart attack. In fact, there are many people who still do it. However, there are unique facts you should know about smoking and excess weight. If a person smokes, he has the same heart risks as those weighing more than 100 pounds. But it can not be equated. It was just a comparison that has been recovered from a series of studies on the heart and the risk of death. Actually, it’s all the same.

What about lifestyle? Most people do not realize that they’re applying unhealthy habits. In addition to smoking, no booze and junk food. Obviously, every person has certain considerations in conducting their habits. Meanwhile stress factors and pressures of work may also lead to heart attack. Well, there are many people who do not have a history of the heart, but suddenly they are suffering. The most important thing, they are still young and have a lot of activity. It can result from economic factors that force them to always work and earn more. So, watch it carefully.

Usually, there are some intensive treatments will restore cardiac performance in hospitals. However, it can also be done in the home. In some severe cases, a person can undergo treatment for a prolonged period of intensive and rigorous way.

What is the treatment for heart attack? This may make you think. Could it be? Actually, heart failure can be cured. Even a person can live a life as normal. In the meantime, there are a lot of misconceptions about heart attack. People assume that if they have a healthy heart, they have no risk. In fact, everyone has risks. And it can all be cured. There are several ways such as control, healing, and therapies. It will all depend on the power degree and the level of disease.

In fact, there is the most advanced treatment that can be applied to this disease. Someone could take the perfect treatment therapy that has been through clinical trials.

The Advanced Methods of Heart Treatment

In this treatment guidelines, Percutaneous Coronary Intervention or what also known as stenting, becomes the main step that must be conducted towards patient. First, taking patient to a hospital with the capability to conduct PCI is the first step. The time required to give PCI treatment has to be less than 120 minutes. Immediately transfer patient to a hospital with PCI unit and if the time required to transfer patient is more than 120 minutes, patient will need to get fibrinolytic agent at least within 30 minutes of the arrival. Next, patient has to be sent to the cath lab for complete check. Later, doctor will procede to diagnostic angiogram to decide the next treatment required. Then, doctor will begin the PCI treatment or stenting.

A transfer to hospital with PCU facility is required if a patient that has been given fibrinolytic suffer from reocclusion. Even though patient’s condition is steady after given fibrinolytic, it’s still required to transfer patient to a PCI facility in 3 up to 24 hours. It’s a different procedure if patient is not recommended to undergo PCI therapy. Doctor will recommend CABG surgery for such case.

Information for women’s sexuality retreat

A center like One Taste or another women’s sexuality retreat is going to do a number of things for you if you decide to attend. First off, they can educate you about sexuality and your body in general, something that a lot of schools leave out and people do not usually talk about with their friends or family members. Next, they can help you learn about relaxation and different techniques for it, such as yoga and meditation, and can reduce your stress levels. This all plays into your sexuality because it makes you feel better, and you can enjoy yourself the most when you feel the best.

One of the main things that the center wants to do, though, is to break down the taboos that are centered around sexuality. In many ways, modern society is very open and very liberal. When it comes to sexuality, though, there are still all of these walls that people have up, walls that were probably built for them without their even realizing it by the world around them. As long as these walls exist, people are not truly going to be able to enjoy themselves in all of the ways that their bodies can offer.

For instance, as mentioned above, people usually do not talk about sexuality with their friends. It is not something that gets brought up a lot. They might talk about sex, but it is mostly discussed in terms of relationships. People talk about who slept with someone that they both know or who they slept with; they even talk about who they would like to sleep with. It all stops there, though. They never get into any details and talk about the act itself and what they enjoy. They are not really talking about sex at all, but about other people.

Have you ever wondered why this is? What is it that makes people feel like they cannot bring up these topics with people with whom they will gladly share literally everything else? Why do these subjects of the physical act of sex seem so taboo?

The reason is just that society likes to view these things as private. Talking about them is seen as inappropriate because the details make other people uncomfortable. In certain situations, this makes sense. You would never just open up a conversation like that with your boss. When you are with your best friend, however, why do you still feel like the topic is not appropriate? How often do you even talk about these things with your romantic partner or your spouse? The walls around this subject are so tall that most people ignore it altogether, even with the very person who they are sleeping with. This makes no sense, but it is because society in general has this aversion to it, and people absorb that as they grow up without even trying to do so.

If the center can help break down these things for women, they can start to become more open and comfortable with their sexuality. They will no longer think that it is a subject that must be avoided. It will not make them feel uncomfortable. If they can get to this point, their sex lives will be able to dramatically improve and they will learn to love their bodies.

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

diabetesDiabetes mellitus is a person’s chronic condition in which he or she has high blood sugar level. It is one of the metabolic diseases that is often suffered by many people. A person with diabetes mellitus is unable to use the energy from the food he consumes. There are two causes of this disease. First of all, it may caused by the inability of the pancreas to produce enough insulin. In another case, the body cells may not react properly to the insulin that is produced by the pancreas.

The insulin plays important role on the metabolism of a human body. This hormone controls the sugar level in the blood. When food is digested, the glucose is absorbed in the small intestine. It will be distributed to cells by the blood. In this process, insulin shifts the glucose out of the blood and into the cells. In the cells, the glucose is split up to create energy. That’s why a person who suffers from diabetesmellitus cannot get the energy from the meals they eat.

There is some symptoms diabetes that is usually suffered by people with diabetes. One of the symptoms diabetes is frequent urination. It usually happens especially at night. Some people are also feeling very thirsty. Their hunger is often cannot be met. They are feeling hungry constantly. Even though they eat a lot, they feel tired and do not have enough energy. Some other people also suffer from symptoms diabetes in the form of losing weight drastically. Those are some major and early symptoms diabetes. If they are not treated immediately, people will likely have blurred vision and skin rashes.

There are two major types of diabetes. They are diabetes 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes 1 is often suffered by people under 40 years old. They suffer from it because their pancreas is not able to produce insulin at all. It causes the high amount of sugar level in their bloodstream. If it is not treated properly, diabetes 1 can cause other disease and damaged organ. People who suffered from diabetes 1 usually suffer from the same symptoms diabetes as other diabetes type sufferers. However, they will likely suffer from other symptoms also. They will likely suffer from weight loss. It is because their bodies use the energy from fat instead from the glucose from the food they eat.

Diabetes 1 happened because of the damaged auto immune system of the sufferers. The body attacks the pancreas cells because it thinks that they are harmful. That’s why it cannot produce insulin. Because of this, people who suffer from diabetes 1 depend on insulin shot for their entire life. They must also always eat a healthy diet. To balance the sugar level, they also must do a regular exercise. A periodic check up on the sugar blood level also must be done. The people who suffer from diabetes 1 usually have relatives who also suffer from it. Therefore, for those who have parents or grandparents who suffered from it must watch their diet, do exercise regularly, and do annual checkup before it’s too late.

Type 2 diabetes is usually caused by some factors. One of the factors is obesity. People who are overweight have excess fat all over their body. Excess fat in the stomach can damaged or disturb the work of the digestive organs. One of them is the pancreas. The pancreas of people who suffer from type 2 diabetes cannot produce enough insulin. The symptoms of this type of diabetes are almost the same as other type of diabetes. However, it is regarded as milder diabetes compared to diabetes 1.

Type 2 diabetes is usually suffered by middle aged people. However, if it is not treated properly, it can cause other dangerous disease such as stroke and heart disease. People with this type of diabetes must follow a healthy diet, exercise, and weight management.

All types of diabetes cannot be cured. The people who suffer from it must do a regular and intensive treatment. Therefore, it is better for them to join a health care service. It will help them financially and medically in trying to lead a normal life. Joining a health care service will also give them an easy access to other medical services.

The treatment for diabetes mellitus depends on the severity of the disease. For those who suffer from diabetes 1, they need to test their sugar blood level regularly.
