The most common type of malaria infection is that of Plasmodium falciparum and this strain does fortunately NOT have a relapsing phase.

The other strains such as Plasmodium vivax, ovale, or malariae can infect the liver and persist in a dormant state for months, or even years after exposure to the infection.

Should a relapse develop it can be treated by restraining the acute symptoms with chloroquine and then overcome the liver infection with medication called primaquine.

This medication is more toxic and has more side effects than chloroquine but is a very effective form of treatment.

People with a deficiency of the blood enzyme G6PD are predisposed to reactions from primaquine treatment but such an enzyme blood deficiency is easy to ascertain with a simple blood test before treatment with primaquine is started.

Prevention of malaria infection is better than curing the disease as the infection is becoming increasingly resistant to prescribed drugs.

Various insecticides, which are used to spray areas favored by mosquitoes, are also no longer effective, and a constant struggle is under way to develop new anti-malarial drugs and insecticides, to keep the disease at bay.

Influenza B: Cause, Symptom, Treatment and Prevention

Influenza B can cause respiratory and stomach symptoms. It can be easily treated. Vaccine and staying away from virus can prevent it.

Influenza or the flu refers to a respiratory infection that can be caused by a variety of viruses. The virus will move through the air and become inhaled through the mouth or nose. Approximately 5-20 percent of people catch the flu each year in the United States. Influenza can cause a serious infection or death in newborns, the elderly and people with some chronic illnesses. The viruses that cause influenza are classified as A, B or C types, depending on how their proteins are composed. Type B viruses are the most common in humans.

All flu viruses travel in the air as droplets of moisture. It spreads when people talk, cough or sneeze, releasing this moisture. Some people inhale this moisture in the air while others touch objects like a keyboard or telephone that are covered in the virus and then transfer them to the eyes, mouth or nose by touching these areas.

The influenza virus alters and creates new strains constantly so those that have already been affected by the flu may have developed antibodies to ward of a specific type of flu virus. If you are exposed to a virus in the future that is similar to those you have experienced before or you have been given a vaccination against a certain type of flu, it will be easier for the body to fight off the infection.

The antibodies a person has developed will not be able to prevent an infection caused by new strains of the virus or subtypes of the virus that are different than those you have already been exposed to.

1. Body Symptoms

A common sign that someone is developing the flu is fever. Fevers caused by this virus can climb as high as 106 degrees F, though this particular type of fever tends to be less severe than other types. Adults also tend to experience lower fever than children when they are infected with the virus. Those infected with this type of flu will also commonly have fatigue and body aches.

Salt elimination may also cause a temporary rise in blood pressure. People who go on salt-free diets may actually experience a slight increase in their blood pressure as the heavy elimination of salt begins. Later the blood pressure renormalizes itself and eventually becomes below the norm on a salt-free diet.

Eliminating sugar from the diet may make a person feel slightly nervous and hyperactive until the energy levels adjust to a sugar-free diet.

Mood changes, however, are usually more noticeable than any physical symptoms when sugar is eliminated. Reformed sugar addicts may feel periods of unaccountable depression as their blood sugar level tries to right itself. Getting off the sugar roller coaster, with its rapid rises and falls in blood sugar levels, is easier when a diet high in raw foods is followed. Such a diet renormalizes blood sugar levels and promotes tranquility of emotions.

Almost every person is poisoned by deposits of heavy metals in the body. Lead, aluminum, copper and arsenic collect in organs throughout the body. Because of their heavy weight, they are difficult to eliminate, and may cause discomfort as they leave the body.

Lead enters the body through auto exhaust, paints and canned foods. Aluminum may come from preparing or storing food in aluminum containers. Arsenic is present on sprayed foods, and so on.

Since these metals are heavy, they, tend to remain in the body until a cleansing diet or fast is followed. As these metals come out, headaches and a general achiness all through the body may occur. The gums may hurt and the kidneys may throb as these metals leave the organs and bones.

Occasionally, you can actually taste the metal that is being eliminated. Lead, especially often leaves a metallic taste on the tongue when it is leaving the body.

Heavy-metal poisoning can make you feel uncomfortable all over, and it is very common due to all the environmental toxins. As you eliminate these metals, bear the uncomfortable body aches and realize that they are leaving your body forever.

Meat-eating creates an acid condition in the body. When meat is eliminated, the body tries to reestablish its naturally-healthy, alkaline condition. As the acid condition of the body changes to one of alkalinity, symptoms may arise that may confuse the new vegetarian.

A sour, disagreeable odor may emit from the body as the acids leave or are neutralized. Hair may fall out and the breath may turn foul. Urine may be very dark and a sharp, bitter taste may be in the mouth.

Weakness of the arms and legs may occur. Many people contuse this weakness for protein deficiency. Instead, the weakness has resulted from a consumption of too much acid-forming protein in the past. The body’s energies are directed toward neutralizing these old toxins and so you may feel weak for a temporary period. Once the toxins are taken care of and an alkaline condition is reestablished, then strength returns to the limbs.

The discomfort of an over-acid body caused by meat-eating can be quickly overcome by a high-alkaline diet, such as fresh fruits and vegetables.

Most people who change their diet and improve their health may experience one or more of the symptoms described below. Depending upon your past health, these symptoms may be mild or intense, short-term or long-term, temporary or recurrent.

As you improve your health, however, and stay on an optimum diet, all symptoms will gradually disappear.

Under no circumstances should these symptoms be halted by drugs.

Relief from some of these symptoms may come through fasting and rest primarily.

The re-appearance of iodine deficiency and hypothyroidism in developed countries is caused by a trend towards low salt consumption. In a bid to reduce the risk factor for hypertension and edema, most people in affluent nations are taking the widely publicized health advice to drop salt from their diet.

Unfortunately, iodized salt has been the most used and the most effective public health initiative to reduce iodine deficiency and prevent goiter, cretinism, and hypothyroidism.

Adding iodine to salt is a very cheap means of eradicating iodine deficiency. Experts estimate that it costs only a few cents for every ton of salt produced.

However, care should be taking with treating iodine deficiency with iodized salt.

Where the deficiency is severe and met with high intake of iodized salt, hyperthyroidism may result. In addition, people who are older than 40 years have a greater risk of developing hyperthyroidism from taking iron-fortified food products.

Where salt consumption is heavily restricted, iodine can still be obtained from the diet by eating more saltwater fish and sea vegetables such as kelp.

With swine flu claiming so many lives across the nation it is little tricky to give a straight answer to such a simple question. However, there is a fair amount of chance to recover from the flu if treatment and care can be provided on time and during the initial phase soon after contracting the viral infection.

‘One must realise that unlike other viral diseases like leptospirosis, malaria, dengue where the entire immune system and all major organs have to face the wrath of the virus, in case of swine flu, the immunity of a person is suppressed and only the lung function is affected, although to a great extent. So, recovery of a patient from swine flu largely depends on the extent of lung damage one has faced due to the virus,’ says Dr Prakash Jiandani, director of critical care unit, Wockhardt Hospital, South Mumbai. In some rare cases of swine flu, it can also lead to cardiac arrest and brain damage. But most of the time, a life is lost battling a respiratory infection because of swine flu and it doesn’t reach to that extreme. Here is all that you need to know about the treatment and medication of swine flu.

Lines of treatment

In case of swine flu, the first line of treatment is antiviral therapy given either by oral suspension or in capsule form. If a patient fails to recover with oral medications the second line of treatment would be to start on ventilation. ‘The idea of starting a patient suffering with moderate to severe symptoms of swine flu on ventilation, is done to restore oxygen supply in the blood and revive lung function. However, one must realise that even best ventilation mechanisms can help patients only to a certain extent. If the damage done to the lungs is beyond any repair, then even the best of supportive care provided would fail to help one survive any longer,’ informs Dr Jiandani. Here are the symptoms of swine flu you should know about.

Prevention is better than cure

This is the reason why preventing a bout of swine flu is more important than treating it. ‘It is necessary to take steps early and visit the doctor if you develop any symptoms of the seasonal flu. However, not all the healthy individual with cold and cough needs to be treated for swine flu. One should be diagnosed carefully for the symptoms, especially those who fall under the risk group, like people suffering from High BP, diabetes or the elderly,’ says Dr Jiandani. Here are 15 tips for everyone to prevent a bout of swine flu.

Oral antiviral medication, when given within 48 hours after experiencing the symptoms can help one recover fast. However, if it delays recovery then oxygen therapy with proper ventilation goes in long way to resurrect lung function. ‘High frequency ventilation or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can help patients recover from the symptoms of flu,’ says Dr Jiandani.

The Influenza season is in its beginning stage. This usually takes place in South Africa between the last week of April and the first week of July. The Western Cape Department of Health has started providing vaccinations to mitigate the effect of influenza.

Vaccines will be available during this flu season and the department will ensure that it's utilised in accordance with the national campaign.

The Western Cape Government of Health has received a 100 000 doses of influenza vaccines to be distributed to all public facilities around the province.

Influenza Vaccination Programme

The Department’s Influenza Vaccination Programme targets the following high risk individuals that present to our public health facilities:

a) Adults and children at high risk for flu-related complications because of underlying medical conditions including:

  • Chronic pulmonary disease (including asthma).
  • Cardiovascular disease (except hypertension).
  • Renal, hepatic, neurological and haematological disorders.
  • Metabolic disorders (including diabetes mellitus).

Lexapro is my last medication I am getting off now (under GP and psychiatrists supervisor / guidance). All other medications were weaned off of over a long period of time and in small increments.

I started going off Lexapro a two weeks ago (20 mg down to 10 mg), the first week I thought I was just getting my girlfriends flu.

Then I went from 10 mg to nothing.

This has been HELL!

Cold sores, mouth ulcers, lethargy, headaches, really bad insomnia, grumpy and unsociable.

I believe it must really weaken your immune system in order for this to happen.

The first week was great. I could think clearer. Tasks and university work began to become easier to do due to being able to think more in depth and sequentially.

I may have to redo my units but if I am able to think as clear as the first week I am willing to make that sacrifice.

Does anyone who has gone cold turkey after long periods on Lexapro as to how long the withdrawals symptoms last?

i too am weened off lexapro.. this is my 5th day off of my 10mg of 8 months not long i know.

but i don't want to be on these any more as me and my partner are trying to conceive i think this med is blocking it and keeping is from conceiving so if we get what we want at the end its the only thing giving me hope from these horrendous side effects.

I really hope i can push from it but all people blog about is how bad the side effects are and the beginning stage. what about after the withdrawals.. is there hope?

my symptoms are feeling faint light headed migraine sweats shivers and shaking cant concentrate and patchy skin if this is it then fine i can get over this.. but how long will it last? also i am extremely tired won't stop sleeping and signed off from work due to nearly collapsing..:(.

Hey I have only been on for 9 months at 10 mg and I dosed myself down to 5mg for the past 3 days. I am experiencing pain in my neck but nothing else anyone has been talking about. Did you have any physical pain?

Prevention: Avoid overcrowded places in endemic areas, particularly where spitting is common. Never drink unpasteurised milk. If in doubt, boil it before drinking. There is a vaccination (BCG) which can give a valuable degree of protection, particularly in children. Travellers who plan to spend more than a month in an area with a high tuberculosis rate and who have not been previously immunised should consider immunisation with BCG.

SARS
(Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome)
is a severe pneumonia that has been reported in China Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Canada. It appears to have spread in a short period of time and is now regarded by the World Health Organisation as a worldwide threat.

The organism responsible for SARS was originally thought to be a paramyxo virus similar to the viruses responsible for causing measles and mumps but It has now been identified as a member of the coronavirus family never previously seen in humans. Identification of the coronavirus means that scientists can now move towards developing treatments for SARS and successfully controlling the disease. At present there is no specific treatment.

Outbreaks such as the one in Toronto which affected family members and health care workers are thought to have occurred early in the epidemic when the significance of the condition was not appreciated. Where infection control measures are applied, outbreaks seem not to occur. Therefore, anyone thought to be suffering from the illness should be isolated and nursed using barrier techniques. Secondary infections can be controlled with antibiotics and symptomatic treatment undertaken.

Avian Influenza (Bird Flu)

Avian influenza usually does not make wild birds sick, but can make domesticated birds very sick and kill them. They do not usually infect humans; however, several instances of human infections and outbreaks have been reported since 1997. When such infections occur, public health authorities monitor the situation closely because of concerns about the potential for more widespread infection in the human population.

The reported symptoms of avian influenza in humans have ranged from typical influenza-like symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, sore throat and muscle aches) to eye infections, pneumonia, acute respiratory distress, viral pneumonia, and other severe and life-threatening complications.

Currently there is no definitive evidence of human-to-human transmission of avian influenza and no infections have been documented among health-care workers. While it is unusual for people to get influenza infections directly from animals, such transmission has been documented several times in recent years and is under investigation although most human cases have been linked to direct contact with diseased birds.

The World Health Organisation and other health authorities worldwide are seriously concerned over the co-circulation of human and highly pathogenic animal influenza viruses since an exchange of genes between the two viruses might occur if individuals were co-infected with both viruses which could give rise to a new virus to which humans would have little or no immunity and which could be transmitted from person to person.

It is recommended that travellers to countries experiencing outbreaks of avian influenza in poultry should avoid areas with live poultry, such as live animal markets and poultry farms. Large amounts of the virus are known to be excreted in the droppings from infected birds. Be sure to include a thermometer and alcohol-based hand sanitiser for hand hygiene in your travel health kit.

Influenza B beschreibt einen von drei für den Menschen relevanten Influenza-Virustyp (A, B und C), welcher ausschließlich den Menschen befällt und zusammen mit dem Influenza-A-Virus für die jährlich wiederkehrendenGrippewellen während der Wintermonate verantwortlich ist. Im Gegensatz zum Influenza-A-Virus löst die B-Variante jedoch keine Pandemien (wie 1918 die Spanische Grippe) und seltener Epidemien aus, gilt aber ebenfalls als hoch ansteckend.

Symptome & Verlauf

Das Influenzavirus gehört zur Gruppe der Orthomyxoviren und wird anhand bestimmter Oberflächenproteine in Typen (A, B und C) sowie deren Subtypen unterteilt. Diese oberflächlichen Strukturen übernehmen, sind die Viren erst einmal im Wirt angelangt, unterschiedliche Aufgaben. Das Hämagglutinin (Antigen H) ist für die Verbindung des Virus mit der Wirtszelle zuständig, die Neuraminidase(Antigen N) hilft dem Virus, in die Zelle einzudringen. Die genannten Antigene sind in verschiedenen Ausführungen vorhanden und können in unterschiedlichen Kombinationen auftreten, was dann den jeweiligen Subtypus bestimmt. Bei Influenza B gibt es die seit Jahren existierenden Linien: Yagamata-Linie und Victoria-Linie.

Die Symptome bei einer Erkrankung an Influenz-B-Viren entspricht der typischen Grippesymptomatik und umfasst im Wesentlichen:

  • rasch ansteigendes Fieber bei plötzlichem Krankheitsbeginn
  • starke Hals-, Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen
  • trockener Reizhusten
  • Übelkeit, Erbrechen und Durchfall

Die Symptome treten oft bereits nach 1-2 Tagen Inkubationszeit auf, bestehen in der Regel für 3-5 Tage und klingen dann ab. Durch Übertragung perTröpfcheninfektion (größere Partikel per Husten und Niesen, kleinere bereits durch Sprechen und Atmen) und Sekretübertragung beim Händeschütteln ist die Ansteckungsgefahr bei einer Grippe sehr hoch. Um eine allzu rasche Ausbreitung zu verhindern wird empfohlen, sich zu Hause auszukurieren.

Behandlung

Die Behandlung der Influenza B ist identisch zu der anderer Influenza-Erkrankungen: Neben den gängigen Hausmitteln kann, nur im Fall von schweren Verläufen – bei Risikogruppen oft auch prophylaktisch – eine antivirale Therapiemit Neuraminidasehemmern erfolgen. Diese können die Vermehrung der Viren innerhalb der menschlichen Zelle bzw. deren Freisetzung aus der Zelle verhindern. So wird eine weitere Akkumulation verhindert. Vorbeugend besteht die Möglichkeit einer Grippeschutzimpfung. Dabei werden sogenannte Totimpfstoffeverwendet, also nicht mehr vermehrungsfähige, inaktivierte Virusbestandteile. Das Immunsystem des Körpers reagiert auf das Eindringen dieser Partikel – was mögliche Allgemeinreaktionen wie Fieber, Kopf- und Muskelschmerzen erklärt – und beginnt mit der Produktion von Antikörpern, welche bei nachfolgendem „echten“ Virusbefall zu schützen vermögen.

    Canine Influenza or commonly called dog flu (H3N8) is a newly emerging highly infectious airborne type virus that can cause contagious respiratory illness and infection in dogs with no exception to breed or age.

    Since canine flu is a new disease so there is still much more to learn from this virus. Dog flu (H3N8) is very different from avian influenza or commonly called bird flu (N5N1) that has killed many birds, chickens and peoples in Asia countries.

    Nearly 100 percent of dogs that are exposed to dog flu will get infected because they have no natural immunity to this new emerging disease and around 80 percent of infected dogs will develop mild flu symptoms within the range of two to five days after exposure. However some them may not show signs or symptoms at all but remain contagious for few day or weeks. The conditions and illness can be severe for young puppies, old dog and canine with low or weaken immune systems.

    Most infected dogs make a full recovery within a few weeks but there are some case that canine influenza can lead to pneumonia if left untreated.

    Canine Influenza continuously mutates itself and has the adaptation ability to infect a large variety of animals.

    The incubation period for dog flu is around four weeks. If infected dogs had good treatment of antibiotics then they should be back to normal conditions. Mortality rate is very low.

    There are molecular studies which indicated that dog flu mutated from equine influenza virus which is commonly called horse flu (H7N7 or H3N8). Equine influenza has been around for more than 40 years ago and there is no report on horse flu disease transmitted to humans. Centers for disease control (CDC) researchers do not expect dog flu transmission to humans because Canine Influenza and Equine Influenza are closely related.

    Initially Influenza viruses are specific for their own host species and it requires a dramatic mutation in order to jump to other kind of species so if mutation occurs in the future then there is a chance that human can get infected but at present there is nothing to worry about.

    Spread and Transmission

    Dog flu is an airborne type virus which spread or transmitted to other nearby dogs by coughing or sneezing. It can also be spread by direct contact with contaminated surface or secretions from the nose.

    Symptoms may be seen after 2-5 days of exposure and infected dog have the ability to spread flu virus for 7-10 days.

    Goiter can form when the production of T4 falls sharply. To renew the production, TSH is secreted in large amounts from the pituitary gland.

    However, if the low production of T4 is caused by iodine deficiency, the increased secretion of TSH does not translate into an increased synthesis of T4. Instead, TSH needlessly stimulates the growth of new cells in the thyroid gland, and this causes the enlargement of the gland.

    In mild cases, which are the most common, a mild iodine deficiency may lead to increased production of T3 in the thyroid gland. However, since most of the body’s store of T3 is made from the available T4 which are not being replenished, T4 is rapidly depleted.

    Goiter is a big public health problem not only in poor countries but in some affluent nations of Europe and in Australia and New Zealand. The treatment is, however, simple. By supplying iodine supplements, goiter cases can be quickly resolved.

    The easiest way to provide iodine supplementation to any population is by mandating that sale of only iodized salts.

    Although goiter responds well to iodine supplementation, it is best to treat the iodine deficiency immediately. If left untreated, iodine deficiency progressively destroys the tissues of the thyroid gland. After five years, even iodine supplement or thyroxine replacement cannot reduce the size of goiter because the damage is then permanent.

    It should be noted that goiter can be caused by hyperthyroidism too and this second type of goiter does not involve iodine deficiency.

    Cretinism is closely linked to iodine deficiency and goiter. In fact, it was the observation that parents with goiter are more likely to have mentally retarded children that revealed the nature of cretinism.

    Signs of cretinism include impaired mental development, squint, deaf-mutism, stunted growth, improper stance and walking gait as well as all the other symptoms of hypothyroidism including low basal metabolic rate, low basal body temperature, cold intolerance, fatigue, weight gain and hair loss.

    Iodine deficiency is the most important cause of cretinism and it can account for about 15-point difference on the IQ (intelligence quotient) scale.

    Iodine supplementation is the only way to prevent cretinism and the supplementation is most effective when given in early childhood while mental capacity is in rapid development.

    Advanced HIV disease appears to increase the risk of having menstrual irregularities, such as fewer and lighter periods.

    These changes, however, probably have more to do with the weight loss and poor health of women with late-stage infection rather than the infection itself.

    Infection with HIV also has been associated with earlier age of menopause (47 to 48 years for infected women compared to 49 to 51 years for uninfected women).

    Within a month or two of HIV entering the body, 40% to 90% of people experience flulike symptoms known as acute retroviral syndrome (ARS).

    But sometimes HIV symptoms don't appear for years—sometimes even a decade—after infection.

    "In the early stages of HIV infection, the most common symptoms are none," says Michael Horberg, MD, director of HIV/AIDS for Kaiser Permanente, in Oakland, Calif. One in five people in the United States with HIV doesn't know they have it, which is why it's so important to get tested, especially if you have unprotected sex with more than one partner or use intravenous drugs.
