Dry Socket - Symptoms, causes and treatment



The sense of Dry Socket
Dry socket or alveolar osteitis is inflammation conditions experienced by the jaw bones on three or four days after tooth extraction permanent. The complications that occur after tooth extraction attack 2-3 percent patients, and 20 percent of them had to revoke the youngest molar teeth (wisdom teeth) .

Sexual Dysfunction - Symptoms, causes and treatment

Understanding Sexual Dysfunction

 
Sexual Dysfunction - Symptoms, causes and treatment
Sexual dysfunction is a problem that prevents a person from having a sexual desire or gets satisfaction in sexual activity. This condition can affect both women and men, and the risks are higher with age.
 
Sexual dysfunction in women includes problems in sexual response, orgasm and pain during intercourse. While sexual problems in men regarding erectile dysfunction or impotence, impaired ejaculation, and loss of sexual arousal. Sexual dysfunction alone is not a rare occurrence, where 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men have at least experienced interference or difficulty in their sexual activity.
 

Sexual Dysfunction

 
Sexual dysfunction can be a nuisance if this problem persists and has a significant effect on a person's sexual life. The longer this sexual dysfunction lasts, the higher the pressure and the level of anxiety the person has. Even so, most patients with sexual dysfunction can be recovered with physical medicine combined with psychological therapy.
Symptoms of Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction shows symptoms based on the type of disorder suffered. Men and women have different symptoms. Here are the symptoms of sexual dysfunction in women:
 
  •     Low sexual desire. This is the most common type of sexual dysfunction suffered by women, and is characterized by a loss of desire or desire for sexual intercourse.
  •     Sexual arousal disorder. In this condition, sexual desire persists, but a woman is difficult to arouse and sustain stimulation during sexual activity.
  •     Sexual dysfunction / dyspareunia disorders. The symptoms are arising pain when making vaginal contact or sexual stimulation. Many things that can trigger pain in sexual relations, including vaginismus, inadequate lubrication, and rigid vaginal muscles.
  •     Orgasmic disorder, ie difficulty reaching orgasm despite stimulation and stimulation is done continuously.
 
While the symptoms of sexual dysfunction in men are:
 
  •     Erectile dysfunction or known by the name of impotence. This condition occurs when a man is unable to erect or maintain the necessary erections during intercourse.
  •     Decreased sexual desire (libido). This condition is often associated with a low amount of testosterone in the body. If the drop in desire is severe, a man will not be entirely eager to have sex.
  •     Ejaculation disorders There are three types of ejaculatory disorders, ie premature ejaculation (ejaculation that occurs before penetration or shortly after penetration), slow ejaculation, and ejaculation turns (ejaculation back to the bladder and not out on the tip of the penis through the urethra).
 

Causes of Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual dysfunction may occur due to several factors, including:
 
  •     Physical or medical conditions that interfere with sexual function. These conditions include diabetes, heart and vascular disease, neurological disorders, chronic illness, drug abuse, and side effects from certain drugs (one of which is an antidepressant that can interfere with sexual desire and function).
  •     Hormonal conditions, such as decreased levels of estrogen in women, especially after menopause and low testosterone in men, reduces the desire to engage in sexual activity.
  •     Psychological factors, especially stress, can cause sexual dysfunction. In addition, anxiety, excessive worry about his sexual performance, problems in relationships or marriage, depression, guilt, and the effects of past traumas can also have an effect.
 
Diagnosis of Sexual Dysfunction The diagnosis of sexual dysfunction begins by asking for symptoms thoroughly and performing a physical examination, including examination of physical changes that may affect sexual satisfaction, such as skin elasticity and tissue in the genitals. To strengthen the diagnosis of sexual dysfunction, your doctor may perform the following tests, including:
 
  •     Blood tests to check hormone levels and other risk factors, such as diabetes and cholesterol.
  •     Tests to monitor erections during sleep at night. This test will determine whether an erection disorder is experienced due to physical or psychological factors.
  •     Vascular test in men to check blood flow to the penis.
  •     Sensory testing test to check the strength of nerve impulses in certain body parts.
 
Doctors may also refer patients to other doctors, such as a specialist urologist, endocrinologist, neurologist, sexual therapist and other therapist to get the most appropriate diagnosis and treatment options.
 
Treatment of Sexual Dysfunction Treatment of sexual dysfunction aims to address the main problems that cause this disorder. Treatment includes:
 
  •     Medical treatment to deal with physical problems. For patients with a disease, doctors may adjust or change drugs that have certain sexual effects. Flibanserin drugs are given to premenopausal women who have low sexual desire. While the drug tadalafil, sildenafil, or vardenafil can improve male sexual function by increasing blood flow to the penis. For premature ejaculation problems, doctors can give promescent medication. This topical spray medication contains lidocaine which aims to reduce the sensitivity for ejaculation to be more controllable.
  •     Treatment related to hormone problems. For women with low estrogen levels, estrogen therapy may be given to help the elasticity of the vagina by increasing blood flow and lubrication in the vagina. This therapy can be given in the form of a vaginal ring, cream, or tablet. As for men with low testosterone levels, doctors can provide hormone supplements or testosterone replacement therapy.
  •     Psychological therapy. This therapy is done by a trained counselor to help a person overcome anxiety, fear or guilt that affects sexual function. In addition, an understanding of sex and sexual behavior also needs to be possessed by the patient so that anxiety about his sexual ability can be resolved. One way is to talk openly to the couple about her needs and anxieties to remove obstacles in her sex life.
 
In addition to these medications, some tools such as pumps (vacuum) and vibrators can help a person in handling sexual problems. Meanwhile, to help men with erectile disorders, the choice of penile implant surgery can be considered.
 
To improve your sex life, increase your confidence and find ways to be comfortable with your sexuality. In addition, you must also be able to accept your physical form. It can be achieved by implementing a healthy lifestyle, such as exercising to improve fitness and mood, taking time to relax to relieve stress, avoid alcohol consumption, and stop smoking.

Dysphagia - Symptoms, causes and treatment

Understanding Dysphagia

 

Dysphagia is a medical term that means difficult to swallow. For people who experience this condition, the process of channeling food or drink from the mouth into the stomach will require more effort and longer time than the condition of a healthy person.
Dysphagia has the potential to become a serious threat to health. In some cases, patients can not even eat or drink at all because the symptoms of accompanying pain are already very severe.
 
In addition to swallowing difficulties, there are also some symptoms or other signs that may accompany, including:
  • Pain during swallowing
  • Food feels stuck in the throat or chest.
  • Choking or coughing when eating and drinking.
  • Getting rid of saliva constantly.
  • Weight loss.
  • Food that has been swallowed out again.
  • Stomach acids often rise to the throat.
  • Often heartburn.
  • The voice becomes husky.
  • Patients often cut food into small pieces due to difficulty swallowing or even avoiding certain foods.

What causes dysphagia?

There are many factors that can cause a person to have dysphagia, including:
  • Suffering from conditions that can make the esophagus (the food channel from the mouth to the stomach) narrow or esophagus obstructed, such as gastric acid, oral and throat cancers, eosinophilic oesophagitis, esophageal inflammation due to fungus by fungus or tuberculosis, or Zenker diverticulum Esophageal sac). In addition to these conditions, esophageal constriction may also be caused by radiotherapy side effects.
  • Suffering from congenital conditions, such as cerebral palsy, learning disorders, and cleft lip.
  • Suffers conditions that can disrupt the performance of the food booster muscles from the esophagus into the stomach, such as the illness of secrets and scleroderma. In addition to these two conditions, the age factor can also weaken the ability of muscles in swallowing.
  • Suffers conditions that can damage the nervous system in charge of controlling the swallowing process, such as dementia, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, stroke, brain tumor, and myasthenia gravis.
  • Suffers conditions that may interfere with breathing, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  • Complications from head or neck injuries.

Diagnosis of Dysphagia

Do not ignore if you often feel difficulty in swallowing and immediately to the doctor. Treatment will be more effective if the diagnosis is done as soon as possible. In addition, early treatment will also reduce the risk of complications, such as weight loss, malanutrisi, dehydration, choking, or even pneumonia.
In addition to asking for symptoms that the patient feels, including the severity and how often the symptoms appear, the doctor will also check the body mass index to see if the patient is malnourished due to difficulty swallowing.
 
As a preliminary test, the doctor will usually tell the patient to drink water in a certain amount as soon as possible (water swallow test). Records of time gained as well as the amount of water swallowed can help the doctor assess the patient's ability to swallow. Some of these inspection methods may be performed:
Endoscopy. This check is done with the help of a special hose that is flexible and equipped with cameras and lights. Images captured by the camera will be visible to the doctor through the monitor screen. 
  • Endoscopy can be applied to check the condition of the upper respiratory cavity (nose to throat) or check the condition of the esophagus (throat to stomach).
  • Fluoroscopy. This examination uses X-rays and is guided by a special substance called barium.
  • Manometry. This examination aims to see how well the performance of esogafus by measuring the amount of pressure on the organ when swallowing. Manometry is aided by a catheter (a small special tube) equipped with a pressure sensor. In addition to seeing the function of the esophagus, this examination method can also be applied to measure the volume of acid flowing back from the stomach to ascertain whether it is caused by gastric acid disease by measuring gastric acid levels.

Treatment of Dysphagia

Knowing the underlying cause of dysphagia is crucial to the success rate of treatment. In order for the process of swallowing food becomes easier, in addition to providing medication or applying certain treatment procedures, doctors will also advise patients to switch from solid foods to liquid food.
 
If dysphagia is caused by heartburn and gastric acid then doctors usually prescribe drugs that prevent reflux or backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus. PPI (proton pump inhibitor) can help relieve symptoms of dysphagia caused by narrowing or scarring of the esophagus. If there is inflammation in the esophagus (esophagitis), then the administration of corticosteroid drugs will usually be done.
 
If dysphagia is caused by the presence of something that obstructs the esophagus, for example as a result of scar tissue formation or occurrence of narrowing within the canal, the endoscopic method may be applied in order to exclude an obstructing or can be done by increasing the diameter of the esophageal canal (dilatation).
If the esophageal obstruction is caused by a tumor, surgical procedures should be performed. Surgery can also be applied to cases of dysphagia caused by the illness of the secrets (conditions that cause the muscles in the esophagus to become very stiff). However, in the case of the secretion, the doctor may try to prescribe the botulinum toxin drug before surgery.
 
If dysphagia is caused by cerebral palsy, the disruption of the nervous system in charge of controlling the ingestion, or the disruption of the performance of the pushing muscles of feeding from the esophagus into the stomach, then therapy to improve swallowing should be performed under the guidance of the relevant expert.
In severe cases of dysphagia, the installation of a special tube to channel food in the patient's body may be done to prevent malanutrisi and dehydration.

TYPE 2 DIABETES - Symptoms, causes and treats

Understanding Type 2 Diabetes


Diabetes is a chronic disease (chronic) that occurs when the pancreas (pancreas) does not produce enough insulin, or when the body does not effectively use the insulin. Diabetes is characterized by normal blood sugar levels above normal. While type 2 diabetes is diabetes that is caused by the body's ineffective use of insulin or insulin deficiency relative to blood sugar levels.

Diabetes Tipe 1 - Symptoms, causes and treats

Understanding Type 1 Diabetes


Diabetes is a chronic (chronic) disease that occurs when the pancreas (the salivary glands) does not produce enough insulin, or when the body does not effectively use insulin. While type 1 diabetes itself is a type of diabetes with low insulin production. Therefore, type 1 diabetes is also called insulin dependency diabetes, otherwise known as diabetes autoimmune disease with a cause that is not known for sure.


Diabetes Tipe 1 - Symptoms, causes and treats

DIPHTHERIA

Understanding Diphtheria

Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that generally attacks the mucous membranes of the nose and throat, and can sometimes affect the skin. The disease is highly contagious and includes serious potentially life-threatening infections if not treated promptly.
Diphtheria is caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae and generally has an incubation period (the time span since bacteria enter the body until symptoms appear) 2 to 5 days. Symptoms that indicate this disease include:
  • The formation of a thin layer of gray that covers the throat and tonsils.
  • Fever and chills.
  • Sore throat and hoarseness.
  • Difficult breathing or rapid breathing.
  • Swollen lymph glands in the neck.
  • Limp and tired.
  • Runny nose. Initially liquid, but gradually become thick and sometimes bloody.
Diphtheria can sometimes invade the skin and cause ulcers . The ulcers will heal within a few months, but will usually leave marks on the skin.
Immediately consult a doctor if you or your child shows any of the above symptoms. The disease should be treated promptly to prevent complications.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are at least 7,321 cases of diphtheria recorded worldwide by 2014. Among these figures, Indonesia contributed 394 cases. By 2015, the incidence of diphtheria in Indonesia has increased to 502 cases. However, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia stated that 37 percent of cases occur in patients who have not received diphtheria immunization.
In Indonesia, diphtheria is one of the diseases that prevention has been incorporated into the government's mandatory immunization program. Diphtheria immunization combined with pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus is referred to as DPT immunization 3. The coverage of this immunization itself in Indonesia is quite extensive, ie, 90-100 percent.

Diphtheria transmission process

The spread of diphtheria bacteria can occur easily and generally is through the air when a person sneezes or coughs. In addition, there are a number of other ways of transmission that need to be watched, such as through:
  • Items that have been contaminated by bacteria, for example toys or towels.
  • Direct touch on ulcers due to diphtheria in the patient's skin. Transmission is common in people living in densely populated environments and their hygiene is not maintained.
Diphtheria bacteria will produce toxins that will kill healthy cells in the throat, thus eventually becoming a dead cell. These dead cells will form a gray (membrane) membrane in the throat. In addition, the resulting toxin also has the potential to spread in the bloodstream and damage the heart, kidneys, and nervous system.
Sometimes, diphtheria may show no symptoms so that the sufferer does not realize that he or she is infected. If not properly treated, they have the potential to transmit the disease to those around them, especially those who have not been immunized.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Diphtheria

To establish the diagnosis of diphtheria, initially the doctor will ask you a few things about the symptoms experienced by the patient. Doctors can also take samples from the mucus in the throat, nose, or ulcers to be examined in the laboratory.
If a person is suspected of contracting diphtheria, the doctor will begin treatment immediately, even before any laboratory results. The doctor will advise him to undergo treatment in the isolation room at the hospital. Then step treatment will be done with two types of drugs, namely antibiotics and antitoksin.
Antibiotics will help the body to kill bacteria and cure the infection. The dose of antibiotic use depends on the severity of the symptoms and the length of the patient suffering from diphtheria.
Most patients can get out of the isolation room after taking antibiotics for 2 days. But it is very important for them to continue to complete the consumption of antibiotics as recommended by doctors, ie for 2 weeks.
Patients will then undergo a laboratory examination to see whether there is bacterial diphtheria in the bloodstream. If diphtheria bacteria is still found in the patient's body, the doctor will continue the use of antibiotics for 10 days.
While antitoxin serves to neutralize toxins or diphtheria toxins that spread in the body. Before giving antitoxin, your doctor will check whether the patient has an allergy to the drug or not. In the event of an allergic reaction, your doctor will give you a low-dose antitoxin and slowly increase it while you look at the patient's condition.
For patients who have difficulty breathing due to gray membrane barrier in the throat, the doctor will recommend the process of removal of the membrane. While diphtheria patients with symptoms of ulcers on the skin is recommended to clean boils with soap and water thoroughly.
In addition to patients, people who are nearby are also advised to see a doctor because the disease is very easy to spread. For example, families who live in a house or medical personnel who handle diphtheria patients.
Doctors will advise them to undergo tests and provide antibiotics. Sometimes diphtheria vaccine is also re-supplied if needed. This is done to increase protection against this disease.

Risk of Diphtheria Complications

Treatment of diphtheria should be done immediately to prevent the spread as well as serious complications, especially in children sufferers. It is estimated that 1 in 5 sufferers and elderly people over 40 years died from complications of diphtheria.
If not treated quickly and appropriately, toxins from diphtheria bacteria can trigger some potentially life-threatening complications. Some of these include:
  • Respiratory problems . Cells that die from toxins produced by diphtheria bacteria will form a gray membrane that can inhibit breathing. Membrane particles can also fall into and enter the lungs. This has the potential to trigger an inflammatory reaction in the lungs so that its function will decrease drastically and cause respiratory failure.
  • Heart damage . In addition to the lungs, diphtheria toxin has the potential to enter the heart and cause inflammation of the heart muscle or myocarditis. These complications can cause problems, such as irregular heartbeat, heart failure , and sudden death.
  • Nerve damage . Toxins can cause people having difficulty swallowing problems, urinary tract problems, paralysis or paralysis of the diaphragm, and swelling of the nerves of the hands and feet. This paralysis will make the patient unable to breathe requiring respirator or respirator. Diagfragm paralysis may occur suddenly at the onset of symptoms or weeks after the infection heals. Therefore, people with diphtheria who have complications are generally recommended to stay in the hospital for up to 1.5 months.
  • Hypertensive diphtheria . This complication is a very severe form of diphtheria. In addition to the same symptoms as ordinary diphtheria, hypertensive diphtheria will trigger severe bleeding and kidney failure.

Prevention of Diphtheria with Vaccination

The most effective preventive measure for this disease is with the vaccine. Prevention of diphtheria is included in the DPT vaccine. The vaccine includes diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis or whooping cough .
The DPT vaccine is included in 5 mandatory immunizations for children in Indonesia. The vaccine is administered 5 times at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, one half year and five years.
Such vaccinations can generally protect children against lifelong diphtheria. But for those who have not received this vaccine at infancy, there is a similar vaccine called Tdap that can be given at the age of 12 years.
Patients with recovered diphtheria are also advised to receive the vaccine because it remains at risk for re-contracting the same disease.

GESTATIONAL DIABETES - Symptoms, causes and treats

UNDERSTANDING GESTATIONAL DIABETES

Gestational diabetes is a diabetes that occurs during pregnancy and usually lasts only until the birth process. Gestational diabetes that affects 9.2 percent of pregnant women generally occurs between the 24th to 28th week of pregnancy, although it is not possible to occur in any week.
GESTATIONAL DIABETES - Symptoms, causes and treats


Unlike diabetes in general, gestational diabetes occurs when insulin production is insufficient to control body glucose levels during pregnancy. High levels of glucose in this blood can harm the mother and child, but the risk can be suppressed if handled quickly and precisely.
The cause of gestational diabetes is not known for certain, but the factor that often triggers is hormonal changes. During pregnancy, the placenta will produce additional hormones such as estrogen, HPL (human placental lactogen), and hormones that increase insulin resistance. Over time, these hormones will increase and affect the performance of insulin.
The higher the influence of hormone on insulin, blood sugar levels will increase and this increases the risk of gestational diabetes. In addition, a woman is also at risk of developing illness if she has reached the age of 25 years and over while pregnant, has high blood pressure (hypertension ), has a family with a history of diabetesoverweight before pregnancy ( BMI above 25), had a baby in Over 4.5 kg, had a miscarriage, had previously had gestational diabetes, or race factors such as African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, Middle Eastern or African-Caribbean descent.

Symptoms of Gestational Diabetes

Not all pregnant women can experience symptoms of gestational diabetes, but these symptoms can be felt when blood sugar soaring (hyperglycemia), such as:
  • Often feel thirsty.
  • Frequent urination.
  • The mouth is dry.
  • Easy to feel tired.
  • Blurred vision.
However, not all of the symptoms listed indicate a gestational diabetes condition. Talk to your doctor to find out more about the condition.

Gestational Diabetes Diagnosis

In general, the doctor will perform a physical test and ask for some things like symptoms experienced, duration of symptoms, personal and family medical history (especially diabetes ), conditions experienced in previous pregnancy, the increase or decrease in body weight drastically and infant weight from pregnancy previous. If doctors feel the symptoms experienced lead to gestational diabetes, a series of tests may be suggested, such as:
  • Early oral glucose tolerance test (TTGO). In this test, the doctor will check the blood glucose levels 1 hour before and after consuming the liquid sugar syrup provided by the doctor. If the test results above 130-140 mL / dL, your doctor may recommend a further oral glucose tolerance test.
  • Oral glucose tolerance test (TTGO) continued. In this test, the patient is asked to fast overnight before undergoing a blood test in the morning. After the first blood is taken, the doctor will give the liquid syrup with more sugar than the initial TTGO. After that, blood taking will be done every hour for 3 times. If there are 2 high-grade results, the patient may be diagnosed with gestational diabetes.
In general, your doctor will advise you to perform a blood test early in pregnancy if you have any symptoms or conditions that are at high risk. Patients who have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes are usually advised to perform routine checks, especially in the last 3 months of pregnancy.
An infant exam may also be performed to ensure the baby gets the proper oxygen and nutrients in the uterus. In some cases, postnatal examinations in both mother and baby may be performed to detect further risks.
On the other hand, if the patient is diagnosed free of gestational diabetes, the doctor may still recommend routine checks, especially for potential patients, in order to be monitored properly.

Gestational Diabetes Treatment

For the health of mothers and infants, there are several treatment steps that doctors usually recommend, including:
  • Monitor blood glucose levels . To avoid further complications, your doctor may recommend regular blood checks, such as 4 to 5 times a day, in order to be properly monitored. This is usually done by using a small finger injection (lanset) and glucose levels are detected directly using a special tool. If necessary, your doctor may advise to inject or consume insulin in order to maintain glucose levels until delivery.
  • Ultrasound examination.  In addition to the mother, the doctor may perform routine baby checkups with the help of ultrasound to monitor the growth and development of the baby. In addition, the doctor can also look at the Baby's Birth Estimate (PHL) and if the mother does not deliver within the prescribed time, the doctor can immediately take immediate action, such as induction or caesarean section . In certain cases, your doctor may advise to give birth prematurely to avoid further complications.
  • Healthy diet. For pregnant women, especially those diagnosed with gestational diabetes, regulating a healthy diet is essential, such as consuming vegetables, fruits, grains, to foods with fiber, nutrients and low fat intake. A common weight loss is not recommended, but this can be done when planning a pregnancy. Talk to your doctor about the right diet and nutritional levels for your condition.
  • Sports. In addition to maintaining food intake, exercise is also often a matter of note before, during and after pregnancy. By doing regular exercise, the body will stimulate the transfer of glucose to the cell and turn it into energy. In addition, exercise can also increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin so that blood sugar levels are more controlled. In addition, doctors usually recommend some special exercises to help reduce the discomfort during pregnancy such as backache, muscle cramps, swelling, constipation, difficulty sleeping until preparing the patient through childbirth.
Treatment to control gestational diabetes differs for each case. Ask your doctor for the right treatment for you.

Gestational Diabetes Complications

In general, pregnant women who develop gestational diabetes give birth to healthy babies. However, if these conditions are not handled appropriately, there are several complications that can occur in the baby at birth, such as:
  • Being overweight caused by excess blood glucose levels (macrosomia).
  • Premature birth resulting in respiratory distress syndrome (respiratory distress syndrome). It can also occur in babies born on time.
  • Born with low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) due to high insulin production . This condition can also cause seizures in infants, but can be handled by giving them sugar intake.
  • Risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes as adults.
In addition to babies, new mothers also have the potential to experience complications, such as:
  • Conditions of hypertension or preeclampsia that can endanger the lives of mothers as well as infants.
  • Potentially gestational diabetes in subsequent pregnancies or type 2 diabetes after a period of time. This can be prevented by consuming a high intake of fiber and nutrients.
Complications that occur should be addressed to prevent further complications or death, especially in infants.

Gestational Diabetes Prevention

Until now, there is no certainty if gestational diabetes can be prevented completely, but there are several ways that can be done to reduce the risk of this disease, including:
  • Routine foods with high intake of nutrients and fiber, such as vegetables, fruits and seeds. Get used to set a balanced portion and reduce food with fat or excess calories.
  • Regular exercise to maintain body fitness before and during pregnancy. It is recommended for mild to moderate exercise such as swimming, brisk walking or cycling at least 30 minutes per day. If not, lend a short but periodic exercise to meet those needs, such as walking or doing homework.
  • Weight loss when planning to conceive by adopting a healthy diet for better long-term effects.
  • Perform a complete examination before planning a pregnancy to ensure excellent body condition.
Consult your doctor when planning a pregnancy to find out the proper preventive measures for your body condition.
