DR. ATANU PAL, MBBS, MD (Gen Med), DM (Nephrology), Eular Online MSUS Certificate Course and Eular Online Rheumatology Course The theme of World Kidney Day is Kidney Health for All, Bridge the Gap to Better Kidney Care. It is seen that out of 10 people one person has kidney failure which might take the shape of an epidemic and to keep in check there should be mass awareness. The symptoms of kidney disease are swelling in the legs, frothy urine, frequent urination at night, reddish colour urine, uncontrolled high pressure and medications. Once symptoms for kidney disease are noticed investigations like urea, creatinine, sodium, potassium, haemoglobin and urinary protein help in the diagnosis. If detected then one should consult a nephrologist and keep sugar and pressure in check, avoid having over the counter medicines. If there is total kidney damage then dialysis and kidney transplantation is advised. The best treatment is kidney transplantation but, out of 200 patients only one person gets a donor. Society should come forward to bridge the gap and raise awareness about kidney donation for a better quality of life for kidney patients.

 

Diagnosis & Treatment of Sleep disordered breathing - DR. MADHU PRIYA - Ruby General Hospital
DR. MADHU PRIYA, MBBS, MD (Gold Medalist) Pulmonary Medicine Sleep disordered breathing is a common condition and often ignored by people due to lack of awareness. It is a common phenomenon that when we sleep our muscle tone relaxes, but in some cases the muscle tone is so relaxed that there is airflow obstruction hampering the delivery of oxygen to the lungs leading to decreased circulation in the body. This may sometimes cause sudden cardiac death along with Myocardial Infarction (MI) and stroke. Some patients also complain of uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes inspite of taking optimum medicines. Once the patient is presented to a doctor, it is easy to diagnose by sleep study and the complications can be managed with proper management and treatment.

A Few Words From Dr. Ratul Kundu About The Anaesthesia Used In The Caesarean Section | RGH
A few words about the anaesthesia used in the caesarean section. Usually two types of anaesthesia are used, namely, general and spinal anaesthesia. In the caesarean section spinal anaesthesia is preferred, though people think that they might have back pain. While administering general anaesthesia, some amount of the medicine goes to the child as well, due to which the baby might cry late or remain drowsy. Another benefit of the spinal anaesthesia is that the mother can hear the child crying which brings about hormonal changes and it is beneficial to both mother and child. It is a misnomer that spinal anaesthesia causes back pain. When we learn to stand on our two feet, the back pain is the penalty. This happens at a later stage in men and earlier in women due to child bearing and is not related to spinal anaesthesia at all. The pain is just like when one takes a tetanus injection and adequate amount of analgesics are given for the pain post operation. - DR. RATUL KUNDU, MBBS, MD (Anaesthesia)

If anybody has any difficulty in the limbs, like pain, and difficulty in walking, then, they should immediately consult a vascular surgeon as usually, these patients have coronary artery disease. - Dr. Sankhadip Pramanik, Cardiovascular Surgeon, MBBS (Cal), MS (Cal), MCH (CTVS)

Ignoring Fatty Liver Can Lead To Hepatitis - Dr. Debasis Sardar | Ruby General Hospital
Fatty liver means accumulation of excessive fat in the liver. Normally, around 5% fat is present in the liver and when it exceeds that, it is called fatty liver disease.

Usually, fatty liver disease is asymptomatic and is diagnosed by a ultrasonography of abdomen. The liver enzymes SGPT and SGOT levels might be elevated. The key to reduce fatty liver is daily exercise as it usually affects obese and diabetic people, so, the weight of such people needs monitoring, along with diabetes and cholesterol control. Do not panic if you have fatty liver and do not ignore, consult your doctor without delay and follow advice accordingly. - DR. DEBASIS SARDAR, MBBS, MD (GEN MED), DM (Gastro), (CMC Vellore)
