@sumana In a separate unpublished study of 22 females, investigators assessed the efficacy of the U.SK Advanced Defense Booster, which contains ferulic acid, maslinic acid, peptides, and olive leaf extract. They observed that 98% of patients saw improvement after 28 days of treatment.

RE: Mild COVID-19 Infection Linked to Later Type 2 Diabetes
@deepankar COVID-19 infection may lead to diabetes by upregulation of the immune system after remission, which may induce pancreatic beta-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance, or patients may have been at risk for developing diabetes due to having obesity or prediabetes, and the stress COVID-19 put on their bodies speeded it up
RE: Vaginal Birth and Breastfeeding Linked to Less Allergy
@digbijay The benefits of vaginal delivery were quite broad. The protective effect for those who would develop one condition and for those who would develop all four was reduced for this group. It's not very often that a family can decide how a child is delivered," he acknowledged. But this does tell us something about risk stratification. If a pediatrician has a child that was delivered by C section, they are at higher risk for allergic conditions.
What is the etiology of Chronic Pelvic Pain in Men?
The term chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is used to designate unexplained chronic pelvic pain in men. This pain is associated with irritative voiding symptoms and/or pain in the groin, genitalia, or perineum in the absence of pyuria and bacteriuria (no pus cells or bacteria seen on microscopic analysis of the urine). However, excess white blood cells (WBCs) or bacteria seen on Gram stain and culture of expressed prostatic secretions (EPS) may be found.
RE: What is Cervicitis and how to cure this?
@souptik Admit women to the hospital if pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is suspected and the patient is unable to take oral medications, is pregnant or immunocompromised, has failed prior outpatient therapy, has a tubo-ovarian abscess, or if the diagnosis is uncertain (eg, appendicitis cannot be ruled out). If disseminated infection is suspected, intensive monitoring and parenteral medication are needed, as patients may quickly become unstable.
If the patient is unable to take oral medication because of intractable nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain, then hospitalization for intravenous medication is warranted.
In most cases, test-of-cure is not necessary, because of the high efficacy of the medications used. In the case of persistent symptoms or pregnancy, follow-up testing is recommended.
RE: Is there any non surgical treatment for hemorrhoids?
@deepankar The non-surgical treatments for hemorrhoids are cost and time-saving techniques usually performed in patients suffering early hemorrhoidal disease. The most used are rubber band ligation (RBL), injection sclerotherapy (IS), and infrared coagulation (IRC). These treatments are usually performed in outpatient clinics without anesthesia, so reducing the costs related to hospital stay, operation-theatre and anesthesia; moreover, these techniques are time-saving and allow preserving patients’ working days. These procedures have found a large use in patients suffering bleeding and prolapse caused by early hemorrhoidal stages that did not found an improvement with conservative therapy.
RE: What is the need of antihistaminic in cold and cough treatment?
@satish Some types of them can help relieve your runny nose and sneezing when you have a cold. They block a chemical your body makes called histamine that makes the tissues in your nose itch and swell. Most experts say that histamine isn't the major cause of a runny nose when you have a cold. Even so, some of the older antihistamines, such as brompheniramine and chlorpheniramine, can bring relief. Newer antihistamines like fexofenadine (Allegra) and loratidine (Claritin) have not been shown to work for cold symptoms.
RE: How to cure astigmatism and what are the causes?
@sahana Astigmatism occurs when either the front surface of the eye (cornea) or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves. Instead of having one curve like a round ball, the surface is egg-shaped. This causes blurred vision at all distances. The eye has two structures with curved surfaces that bend (refract) light onto the retina, which makes the images: The cornea, the clear front surface of the eye along with the tear film. The lens, a clear structure inside the eye that changes shape to help the eye focus on near objects. In a perfectly shaped eye, each of these elements has a round curvature, like the surface of a smooth ball. A cornea or lens with such curvature bends (refracts) all incoming light equally to make a sharply focused image directly on the retina at the back of the eye. The goal of treating astigmatism is to improve vision clarity and eye comfort. Treatments are corrective lenses or refractive surgery.
RE: Acute urinary retention- how to manage?
@keka Female urinary retention is a rare entity and its underlying origin may pose a management dilemma. Early catheterization to relieve patient distress must always precede a search for the underlying aetiology and associated complications. Uterine leiomyoma is the commonest benign gynaecologic tumour with up to one in four women developing one or more fibroids during their lifetime. Uterine fibroids occur more frequently in women aged 30–50 years and is strongly associated with obesity, nulliparity, and a positive family history. The acute urinary retention can be relieved by insertion of a urethral catheter, the underlying cause of the obstruction must be determined.
