Neglecting Gums Can Cause Major Syndromes

Filed under: Doctor on call, Gum Disease — Tags: , , , , — doctoroncall14 @ 9:25 am

Gum Disease

Do you think that gum disease happens only to people of your grandparent’s age? Consider again! Gum disease can happen to anyone at any age. Teenagers can also get gum disease. Eating a bad diet, which is not balanced with proper nutrients, less sleep, and higher stress makes you even more prone towards infections anywhere in the body, including your delicate gums.

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues and bone that holds the teeth. Gum disease can become a severe problem if not treated in time. It is generally sourced by formation of plaque; a hidden sticky deposit on the teeth and gums. Plaque includes bacteria, which make toxins that infuriate and spoil the gums. Various kinds of bacteria exist in the mouth, so keeping plaque at bay is a continuous fight. Thus, brushing and flossing every day and every night is crucial. Visiting dentist regularly is also very significant.

There are few reasons that can create teens more likely to develop gum disease. One can inherit the tendency from family. The snacks, which the kids munch, can also put them at danger of mounting gum disease, especially by eating fries and sodas after school and being not able to brush instantly. As, we all know that sugar can be dreadful for our teeth, but also the starchy foods like fries, feed the acids that eat into your tooth enamel. With braces, battling plaque can be much tougher. In addition, some medicinal stipulations including diabetes can increase the risk of gum disease.

A girl has a much higher risk of gum disease than a boy; changes in feminine gender hormones, during puberty make gums extra sensitive. Other reasons are smoking and chewing tobacco that can also lead to early age gum problems.

What should we do to evade such troubles? See dentist if you observe a slight sign of gum disease:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose tooth
  • Discoloration of gums
  • gums are not red, swollen or tender
  • Signs of gum pulling away from teeth
  • Bleeding of the gums while brushing or flossing

Arthritis Pain

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 9:24 am

arthritis-pain

The Greek words ‘Arthron’ meaning joint and ‘Itis’ meaning swelling together derive the word Arthritis. Arthritis is swelling of the joints, with pain, inflammation and strained motion. Conditions like gout, infection and trauma to the joint can cause arthritis. The main three forms of arthritis are: rheumatoid arthritis; osteoarthritis; and septic arthritis, out of which, osteoarthritis is the most common.

There are 80% chances that you will suffer from arthritis by the time you are 65 years of age which leads to a very painful condition.

Why Arthritis show up?

For absorbing or cushioning the joints during various activities like: walking, carrying, exercising and playing, cartilages are necessary. Bones meet at the joints and the cartilage avoids any direct contact between them in order to discard friction. Therefore, when these cartilages are damaged, arthritis is born. Various factors can cause damage to cartilages which leads to excessive pain. Damaged cartilage gives way for the bone endings to come into contact and grind into each other sending signals of searing pain to the brain.

There are three broad reasons for this damage to cartilages:

Injury: Any serious injury to the joints like the hip, knee or shoulder can result in a fracture. During an injury, the blood supply to the injured bones is cut off causing the surrounding cartilage to get damaged.

Disease (Causing Rheumatoid Arthritis): Inflammatory arthritis occurs mostly when the immune system misguidedly hit sac of fluid that serves as a shock absorber between the joints.

Natural aging process (Causing Osteoarthritis): It is caused by the natural breakdown of the cartilage in the joints due to aging process.

Arthritis Pain1

Treatment

Weight control: Weight loss can slow down the process of degeneration of cartilages. Therefore, All Time Doctor arthritis treatment program prescribes right diet and exercise routine.

Dietary supplements are the other common treatments. The bottom line in treating arthritis is constantly treating the pain. So here are some tips that help in getting rid of the pain:

  • Make it a point to sleep on one side with your knees bent. To help cushion the joints, it is preferable to insert a pillow between the joints.
  • In case your fingers pain; immerse your hands in warm water. This shall loosen up your joints and relieve you from pain.
  • Avoid maintaining one posture for a long period of time. Especially people who are living a sedentary life style must make it a point to take a small walk after every one hour.
  • Indulge your self in a healthy lifestyle which can slow down the deteriorating process of cartilages. Eating right and exercising regularly makes a person less prone to arthritis.

At last, we would say that you can always take precautions for delaying the onset of arthritis but, it is very essential to consult a professional physician regarding treatment for arthritis pain. All Time Doctor works in close coordination with you and analyzes your life style, causes and severity of arthritis. Then, All Time Doctor prescribes the suitable regimen for you in order to relieve you from the unbearable pain effectively.

Thyroid Diseases

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 11:02 am

thyroid1

Thyroid is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body which makes the hormones. It is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above the collarbone. Thyroid helps set the metabolism, controls how quickly the body burns energy, makes proteins and determines how sensitive the body is to the other hormones. This gland is found in the neck, below to the thyroid cartilage, which is also called ‘the Adam’s apple in men’. The body afflicted by this disease uses energy either gradually or rapidly than it ought to.

Thyroid hormones control our body’s metabolism. Thyroid hormones influence almost every organ system of the body. They instruct organs how fast or slow they should work. It also regulates the consumption of oxygen and the making of heat.  The problems, such as an overactive or under active thyroid, can severely affect the metabolism. There are several thyroid conditions, which can adversely affect the body.

There are two types of thyroid ailments: Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism.

In Hypothyroidism (Hypo means “under” or below”), when the amount of hormone released in the bloodstream is below normal, the body uses up energy more slowly and chemical activity in the cells slows down. Symptoms for Hypothyroidism are:

  • Gaining weight
  • Easy fatigue, exhaustion
  • Poor appetite
  • Dry skin
  • Hair loss
  • Poor tolerance to cold temperatures
  • Constipation
  • Hoarse voice
  • Puffiness around the eyes
  • Depression

Whereas, in Hyperthyroidism (Hyper means “over” or “above”), the thyroid is very active, that leads to making of more thyroid hormones than the body requires. Excess of thyroid hormone can lead to:

  • Weight loss
  • Faster heart beat rate
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Sensitive to heat
  • Hand tremors
  • Nervousness
  • Excessive sweating
  • Joint pains
  • Enlargement of eyes
  • Menstrual period becoming scant

Tests required to check the disease are TSH, T3 and T4

Significance of Iodine for Thyroid Gland

Iodine is essential for the production of thyroxin. If it lacks in the diet, the thyroid gland can be significantly enlarged; further resulting in the swollen necks of endemic goiter. The children born with thyroid hormone deficiency will face physical development tribulations. The brain expansion can also be relentlessly damaged. Thus, the use of iodized salt is a proficient way to add iodine to the diet.

All Time Doctor helps in detecting and curing the disease in time. If you witness any symptoms mentioned above in your body, just call us. There are numerous analyses for thyroid conditions, including blood tests, x-ray and biopsies. We will visit your premises, diagnose you and will take the blood samples for the required tests.

All about Swine Flu / H1N1 Virus/ Influenza-A

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — doctoroncall14 @ 12:53 pm

Spain Swine Flu

In the alarmed scenario of H1N1 Virus, which has just started creating havoc in the country, All Time Doctor is there for your help. Here is all the information you would need in this scenario for taking precautions and keeping yourself safe.

What is it: This flu is caused by a virus. Tests found that several genes in this virus were like those found in pigs of North America, which is why the ailment was named as Swine Flu. Later on, further tests proved that this virus has gene segments from the swine, avian and human flu virus genes and therefore the previous name was discarded and the virus was renamed as the ‘Influenza-A (H1N1) Virus’. As apparent, this flu is contagious and is spreading from human to human in a very speedy manner.

Symptoms: Symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are also reported by some people with this flu. If you have any of these two symptoms, you need to get yourself diagnosed for H1N1 Virus.

If you cannot decide whether you have caught cold or you are suffering from swine flu, consider these differences.


Symptoms
Cold Flu
Fever Rare Characteristic, high 100-102 degrees F); lasts 3-4 days
Headache Rare Prominent
General aches, pains Slight Usual; often severe
Fatigue, Weakness Quite mild Can last up to 2-3 weeks
Extreme Exhaustion Never Early and prominent
Stuffy Nose Common Sometimes
Chest Discomfort, Cough Mild to moderate; hacking cough Common; can become severe


You cannot be sure if you have swine flu or not just based on your symptoms. Only lab tests can confirm whether you have got this deadly flu or not. Therefore, do not avoid consulting All Time Doctor and getting yourself diagnosed properly.

How does it spread: The virus is spread through the droplets that come out of the nose or mouth when someone coughs or sneezes. If someone coughs or sneezes and they do not cover it, those droplets can spread about one metre (3ft). If you are very nearby you might breathe them in.

Also, when someone coughs or sneezes into their hand, those drops and the virus within them are easily transmitted to surfaces that the person touches, such as door handles, hand rails, telephones and keyboards. If you touch these surfaces and touch your face, the virus can enter your system and you can become infected.

Who is at Risk: All people are at risk but especially those who are already suffering from some kind of chorine ailment like heart disease, lung, kidney, liver disease, suppressed immune system, etc. are more at risk. Pregnant women, children under 5 years of age and elders above 65 years of age are at greater risk.

How effective is wearing a mask: A well-fitted, FDA-approved mask together with other preventive measures MAY reduce the risk of contracting the flu because they reduce the chances of the virus contacting your respiratory system. Those who are sick or caring for someone who is ill should definitely use a mask or respirator, if leaving the house becomes necessary.

Is there any vaccine available: There is not vaccination as yet, but it might be available most probably from September onwards in India.

Precautions: Frequently washing your hands can reduce the chance of infection by 30 per cent. You can also use alcohol-based hand cleaner if soap and water are not available.

Eat healthy: Taking appropriate quantity of proteins is essential to help your body maintain and build strength against diseases. Take the benefit of vitamins B6 and B12, as both contribute to a healthy immune system.
Good sources of these nutrients: Lean meat, poultry, fish, legumes, dairy, eggs, and nuts and seeds.

Exercise: Regular exercise has a cumulative immune-enhancing effect. When you exercise, your white blood cells — the blood cells that fight infections in the body — travel through your body more quickly, fighting bacteria and viruses (such as flu) more efficiently. To maintain good health, All Time Doctor recommends at least 30 minutes of activity such as walking, swimming, biking, or running daily.

Help: Rush to your nearest hospital incase of the positive H1N1 diagnosis.

Stomach Problems

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 10:46 am

Stomach Problems

Stomach problem, as we generally address it, is one of the most common problems during these rainy days. To be more specific, we call it gastroenteritis or stomach infection. The main cause is nothing but those nasty pathogens like: bacteria, virus, mould etc.

During rainy season, when the atmosphere is quite humid, these micro organisms flourish. Due to this, there is a higher tendency of the food to be contaminated easily and quickly. Particularly, food which is prepared in the open environment and half-cooked food can become the reason for gastroenteritis.

This infection can be diagnosed by symptoms like:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • lack of sleep
  • Abnormal flatulence
  • Abdominal pain
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Bloody stools
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Fainting and Weakness
  • Sometimes low fever

There are other problems that are the result of or similar to gastroenteritis. These are:

Piles: Pain at passing stools, slight bleeding in the case of internal trouble. One cannot sit comfortably due to itching, discomfort, and pain in the rectal region.

Constipation: When the stool is hard, difficult, and painful to pass.

Intestinal Worms: With symptoms like foul breath, dark circles under the eyes, constant desire for food restlessness at night with bad dreams, itching around the anus and loss of weight.

Hence, there is a need to cure the gastroenteritis in order to avoid chances of any further disease.

Treatment

Food should be avoided until vomiting persists. It is very necessary to take proper fluid intake to meet the loss of fluids in body. Extract the juice of one lemon in a glass of water and add a pinch of salt and five tea-spoons of sugar. This makes for an oral rehydration solution at home. This solution should be taken several times a day.

The patient should be allowed to gradually embark upon a well-balanced diet. The emphasis should be on whole grain cereals, raw or lightly-cooked vegetables and fresh fruits. In case of severe symptoms that fail to subside, call All Time Doctor for a professional assistance and treatment.

Prevention

It is always better to follow preventions rather than going through elaborate treatment afterwards. Take some precautions as mentioned below, in order to avoid any chances of stomach problems.

  • Do not intake uncooked/half-cooked foods available in open or stale food at home.
  • Water intake should be increased. Try to drink only boil water. Avoid drinking outside water.
  • Thoroughly wash and clean all the food materials before cooking or eating.
  • Hands should be thoroughly washed before taking food.
  • Proper hygiene of the nails must be maintained.
  • All foods must be covered from flies and stored in hygienic conditions.
  • People handling food at the restaurants and food joints must wear gloves and maintain proper personal hygiene.

Relief From Skeletal Muscle Pain

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 7:41 am

Relieving Skeletal Muscle Pain

It is very important to know your body so that you can take proper care of your body. One of the important yet neglected parts of body is Skeletal Muscles.

Skeletal muscle is that muscle which is linked to bones. They move and support the skeleton. They make up fifty percent of your body weight. A skeletal muscle links two bones across its connecting joint. When these muscles contract, your bone moves. Skeletal muscles are voluntary muscles. These are muscles that we can consciously control. A muscle’s name usually describes its shape, location or job. Some skeletal muscles are:

  • Frontalis (forehead)
  • Deltoid (moves shoulder and upper arm)
  • Biceps (bends arm)
  • Rectus abdominis (stomach)
  • Sartorius (bends and turns leg)

Skeletal Muscle Pain

While these muscles compose 50 % of your body weight, these account for 85 % of human pain problems. Commonest muscles affected are those in the neck, shoulder girdle, low back and hip girdle. Muscles have the tendency to get sprained while they are placed under an excessive physical load and exercise. The whole muscle is not usually affected by the sprain, but is confined to one or two small muscles fibers within the main body of the muscle.

Most of the times people do not pay attention to the severity of these sprains and as a result the sprain starts healing naturally. In such a case the muscle is left vulnerable to further injuries and pains.

Solution

Proper treatment must be given to these strains so that muscles do not become weak and vulnerable in future. Various treatments like Spray and stretch, Positional release, Compression Technique, Acupuncture and Injection treatment are used according to the nature of sprain.

All Time Doctor sees to it that the suppleness of the muscle is improved by using stretching techniques shortly after the treatment. These should also be continued at home regularly to maintain the improvement.  

It is also very necessary for patients to fully understand and accept the cause of the pain, the patterns of referred pain, and to take the responsibility for their own recovery by conforming to the necessary stretch routines prescribed by All Time Doctor.

Respiratory Infections

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 8:55 am

Baby With Infection

If you are witnessing symptoms like shortness of breath, weakness, high fever, coughing and fatigue, then you might be suffering from respiratory tract infection. There are two types of respiratory infections: Upper Respiratory Tract Infection and Lower Respiratory Tract Infection.

Upper Respiratory Tract Infection

Symptoms like nasal congestion, cough, running nose, sore throat, fever, facial pressure and sneezing, point towards more severe ailments like sinusitis, pharyngitis/tonsillitis, ear infection, laryngitis and sometimes bronchitis.

  • Sinusitis: Also known as rhino sinusitis, it can be classified under two headings: Acute and Chronic Sinusitis. It is large spread today. You can also be infected with a specific type of sinusitis like Cold Air Sinusitis in which symptoms show only when you are exposed to cold air. Similarly Allergic Sinusitis, in which foreign particles like pollens, dust and other such particles can trigger the symptoms.

Treatment: Medications may include antibiotics (when bacterial infection is involved), decongestants, mucus-thinning medications and antihistamines or anti-inflammatory corticosteroid nasal sprays (both of which are used to reduce swelling and mucus production).

Nasal Irrigation or Jal Neti and regularly inhaling steam, can do wonders in such a situation.

Lower Respiratory Tract Infection

This category includes diseases like pneumonia, lung abscess, acute bronchitis, and emphysema. These are generally more severe than upper respiratory tract infections and can put an equally severe strain on your health budget. Antibiotics are often supposed to be the first treatment when it comes to respiratory infections. It is very important to use right kind of antibiotic according to the infecting organism. The therapy should change according to the nature of the symptoms.

  • Bronchitis: It can be classified into two categories: Acute Bronchitis and Chronic Bronchitis. Every year, 40 adults out of 100 are infected with bronchitis.

Treatment: All Time Doctor takes care of you, by the use of latest therapies and medicines.

  • Pneumonia: It can be life threatening for elderly people and is a major cause of death among the children under 5 years of age. It has a mortality rate of around 25%. It can be classified as either community acquired or hospital acquired.

Treatment: This should not be taken for granted. Proper treatment from All Time Doctor must be taken in case of pneumonia.

Pregnant Women

A pregnant woman can get in contact with people having viral infections at work and at home. But mostly the women do not get infected. Even if a woman does get infected, most viruses would not harm her baby. However, some viruses can cause miscarriage or birth defects in the baby. For further verification, pregnant women can get themselves diagnosed at All Time Doctor at discounted rates.

General Precautions

  • Wash hands frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer.
  • Cover mouth while coughing or sneezing.
  • While in a hospital avoid unnecessary contact and wash hands frequently.
  • If you are already infected, protect the health of others by wearing mask in public and avoiding contact.

Avail The Best Package For Immunization

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 4:38 am

ImmunizationToday, various types of diseases are spreading all over the globe. We at All Time Doctor are fighting hard to overpower them. Immunization is one of the methods for prevention from various diseases like small pox, polio etc. Thus, All Time Doctor takes special care in planning, advising and taking preventive measures for such ailments. It is very important for the people to get aware of the benefits and necessity of immunization.

When an immune system is exposed to molecules that are foreign to the body i.e. non-self, it will create an immune response. When a person’s immune system is comfortably exposed to an agent known as the immunogen, this process is called Immunization.

In simple words, immunization is all about creating a strong protection system inside our bodies against various deadly diseases. As children are more vulnerable to such diseases, they need it more importantly.

Immunization can be achieved in an active or passive manner. Active immunization involves the overture of a foreign molecule into the body, which causes the body itself to generate immunity against the intention. In a Passive immunization, pre-synthesized elements of the immune system are transferred to a person, so that the body does not need to produce these elements itself.

Various techniques can be implemented for the purpose of immunization; most common of them is vaccination. Vaccines work against microorganisms causing diseases. Vaccines can help fight or prevent an infection by preparing the body’s immune system.

Primary vaccination as per the advice of All Time Doctor:

  • BCG
  • Oral polio
  • DPT
  • Hepatitis B*
  • Measles
  • Booster Doses
  • DPT + Oral polio
  • DT
  • Tetanus Toxoid (TT)
  • Vitamin A

For Pregnant Women Pregnant women

It is vital to take various vaccinations according to age and symptoms of an individual. Thus various organizations, such as WHO, UNICEF, WHA try to keep people aware through banners and commercial advertisement on television. For example, polio drops. It is always advised to get aligned with various ailments and there treatments through All Time Doctor.

In pregnancy, maternal immunization protects both the mother and fetus from the certain infections. It can also provide the infant passive protection against infections acquired independently after birth. Ideally, immunizations are given prior to conception, but administration during pregnancy is indicated in some situations.

If you need a doctor to help you relive and recover from such diseases; then All Time Doctor is there at your service to advice and protect you.

All About A Healthy Lifestyle

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctoroncall14 @ 11:29 am

All Time Doctor Healthy lifestyle

Living a quality, healthy lifestyle is becoming more and more important these days. To live a healthy lifestyle means to be consciously aware of the choices you make and the things you do that are good for the body, mind and spirit. According to All Time Doctor, living a healthy lifestyle will reduce the risks for severe medical situations such as high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes.

Most of us are working today and as we all are aware that we hardly get any exercise while in office. This new sedentary life style has led to many new health problems.

Ask some questions from yourself and if the answer is yes, then you are living healthy lifestyle. Do you wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and well rested? Are you within your ideal weight? Are you involved in a physical activity at least once a day to get your heart rate pumping?

But if the answer is no then it is time that you consider your health seriously.

The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health is precious for everyone. Your body and mind is aging every day. All areas of your health will decline faster if you will not take care of your health. You can be in control of your health, if you take care as per the guidance from the team of All Time Doctor.

Just adding a ‘little movement’ to your life can:

* Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes

* Improve joint stability

* Increase and improve range of movement

* Reduce symptoms of anxiety

* Reduce stress

As per ‘All Time Doctor’, doing few tasks is essential in maintaining a great life such as: turning off the television, playing games, taking a walk etc. Almost anything will be more active than sitting on the couch. Look for small ways to exercise more. Do some chores like; working in the garden, sweeping the floor, if you do not have time and money to hit the gym.

These kinds of activities may not be ‘vigorous’ exercise, but they can keep you moving while getting your house in order. When you are on the phone, pace around or even do some cleaning while talking. Make a list of all the physical activities you do on a typical day. If you find that the bulk of your time is spent sitting, make another list of all the ways you could move more like: getting up each hour to stretch or walk, walk the stairs at work, etc.

All Time Doctor will suggest you and will design your regime as per your daily routine for a healthier, happier and a lighter lifestyle. Get registered now with www.alltimedoctor.com
