Why does pancreatitis develop in adults and children

After a plentiful feast, acute pain can sometimes appear right in the hypochondrium, excruciating vomiting. Such symptoms most often indicate the development of pancreatitis. What is a disease? And what are the causes of pancreatitis in children and adults?

A bit about the disease
An inflammatory pathology that affects the pancreas is called pancreatitis. The disease can occur in acute (in the form of painful attacks) or in a chronic form (imperceptibly destroying an organ).

The pancreas is located behind the stomach, in the region of the hypochondrium. The organ has an elongated shape and lies transversely. That is why the pain that occurs in the case of an inflammatory process in the pancreas is often girdle.
Development mechanism
Before talking about the causes of pancreatitis, you need to understand the mechanism of the development of the disease. So, the cells of the pancreas produce digestive enzymes. Initially, they are synthesized in an inactive form. Through a special duct, which merges with the bile duct, such enzymes enter directly into the duodenum.

There is a question: is it possible to take a bath with a cold

There are many beliefs in human life. Do not go forward if the black cat has crossed the road, do not show the groom a wedding dress before the celebration, do not swim if you have a cold. It is completely incomprehensible who and when came up with such rules, but most people strictly follow them. And if someone breaks such rules, then those around him immediately expect “retaliation.” So, let’s try to figure out whether it is possible to take a bath with a cold. Is this a myth or a truth?

Is a bath allowed for a cold person?
With illness, a person sweats heavily. And it is very useful. Together with sweat, toxins come out of the body. Therefore, doctors often recommend that the patient drink warm teas, medicinal decoctions in order to enhance the elimination of harmful components.

Sweat does not evaporate fully. It remains on the body and, mixing with dust particles, pathogenic microorganisms, clogs the pores. This leads to a significant deterioration in the removal of harmful substances. To get rid of sweat, and at the same time to improve the elimination of toxins will help bathing. Continue reading

Diabetes and health: the most common diabetes

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a very serious disease. Violation of carbohydrate metabolism (namely, this is diabetes) has a negative effect on the whole body. That is why people suffering from this pathology are especially vulnerable to various diseases.

What are the main diseases of diabetics?

Cardiovascular diseases
This is one of the most common complications of diabetes. Heart attacks and strokes, arterial hypertension, coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis – all these diseases are more common in diabetics than in people with undisturbed carbohydrate metabolism

The thing is that blood vessels in diabetes are affected due to impaired metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. The content of “bad” cholesterol in the blood rises. Narrowed vessels are clogged with cholesterol plaques, which leads to malnutrition of the heart muscle and a risk of heart attack, necrosis of the brain and ischemic stroke. The likelihood of myocardial infarction in diabetics increases by 8-10 times, stroke – 6 times. Continue reading
