In Winnipeg, hospitals recorded up to 900 emergency room visits per day. The average is about 700 to 750.

“We’ve experienced, over the last 48 to 72 hours, a significant increase in the number of people reporting to our emergency department,” Lori Lamont, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority’s chief nursing officer, said last month.

Alberta Health Services says the province’s influenza season has hit Alberta seniors particularly hard.

“It is hitting older people significantly harder than it did last year,” said Dr. James Talbot, Alberta’s chief medical officer of health.

“The rate of lab-confirmed cases amongst those over the age of 80 is four times higher this season than it was last season.”

WATCH ABOVE: New statistics confirm Alberta’s flu season started a few weeks early and it’s hitting older people particularly hard. Su-Ling Goh reports.

Doctors aren’t surprised that this year’s flu season is leading to increased hospital activity.

The H3N2 flu season in North America shares similarities with what happened months ago during the southern hemisphere’s flu season.

Each year, strains of influenza mutate and re-emerge, infecting victims and triggering a new season. Those of us in the northern hemisphere keep a watchful eye on the flu in the southern hemisphere, which affects residents during their winter (or our summer).

The H3N2 strain is what affected seniors in the southern hemisphere and it was most pronounced on the tail end of the flu season, within the last six weeks, according to Dr. Gerald Evans, a Queen’s University medicine professor and chief of infectious diseases at Kingston General Hospital.

H3N2, traditionally, is more potent. Evans warned in November that if health officials are anticipating an H3N2 predominant season, there could be more hospitalizations.

Foodborne illness, also known as food poisoning, can be caused by a variety of microbes such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites. Harmful toxins or chemicals present in food also may cause foodborne illness.

Different causes of food poisoning cause different symptoms, so there is no one syndrome that is foodborne illness; however, common symptoms include abdominal cramping, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, fever, headache, fatigue, and body aches.

Generally, after contaminated food is consumed there is a delay before food poisoning symptoms start. This delay is called the “incubation period”. The incubation period of a foodborne illness can range from less than an hour (which is rare) to days or weeks, and depends on the organism causing the illness and the amount ingested. This means that the last foods consumed before symptoms start are not always the source of a person’s illness.

O. Peter Snyder, Jr. Ph.D., with the Hospitality Institute of Technology and Management, prepared charts on the incubation period and symptoms for several causes of foodborne illness. Below are links to the detailed charts.

Diarrhea – loose, watery stools occurring more than three times in one day – is a common problem. There are many causes of diarrhea. Temporary diarrhea lasting three weeks or less could be a symptom of a foodborne illness and is usually related to bacterial, viral, or parasitic infection. Temporary diarrhea may also be caused by food intolerances, food allergies, or reactions to medicines.

Chronic diarrhea lasts more than three weeks and is often related to disorders like irritable bowel syndrome or diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease or celiac disease. Some people develop diarrhea after stomach surgery or after removal of the gallbladder. In many cases, the cause of chronic diarrhea cannot be found.

Many people use the term “stomach flu” or “24-hour flu” to describe symptoms of nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Although these symptoms can be related to illness caused by influenza viruses, experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suspect that many of the intestinal illnesses commonly referred to as “stomach flu” are actually caused by foodborne pathogens. Influenza or “the flu” is primarily an illness of the respiratory system caused by influenza viruses that are spread from person-to-person through coughing or sneezing. If diarrheal symptoms do not occur with respiratory symptoms, a person may actually have food poisoning.

Technically, gastroenteritis refers to irritation of the stomach and intestines. Health care providers frequently use “gastroenteritis” or “acute gastroenteritis” as nonspecific terms to describe diarrheal illness suspected to be caused by an infectious agent. Other symptoms can include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and fever.

Influenza 2018: Was steckt hinter Grippe-Symptomen - ohne Fieber?

Man hustet, schnupft und fühlt sich schlapp – doch von Fieber ist man glücklicherweise verschont geblieben. Ist es dann überhaupt eine Grippe?

When kids get the flu those fevers are normal (even higher too) and it's common that the motrin/tylenol isn't that helpful.

There is a test available to see whether it is actuallly flu or not - a Q-tip nasal swab test. Not pleasant, but if it is flu, the doctor can give her TamiFlu, which would help her get over it.

YOu could also give the homeopathic remedy called Oscillo. We just went through the flu last week - 2 of my daughters had it - and I took Oscillo because I was fighting it too. It's completely safe and it totally worked for me. (I got it at wal mart - full name is oscillococcinum). The label doesn't say it, but if you try it, take it apart from food (don't eat within 30 minutes).

Hope your little one feels better soon!!

I'm not a doctor, but my son had influenza a few years ago.

While high fevers are scary, they actually are not proven to cause any damage. It's the virus or bacteria that causes problems. Does your doctor seem concerned about the fever? Ask him or her specifically. Call another one for a second opinion if you can't get a good answer.

You should work hard to keep her hydrated. If she stops taking fluids, call your doctor. Watch for too rapid breathing as well. When my son had influenza, he developed pneumonia within two days and was breathing about 90 times a minute!

When my children have gotten sick it is not on common for them to spike to 105. Whenever I have taken them to the ER they have given them a dose of Tylenol & Motrin at the same time to knock the fever down and then go back to alternating every 3 hours. Now we just use that protocol at home when they spike a fever that high. It does the trick every time. I would hate to recommend that to you without checking with your Doctor first but I wanted to let you know that is what we do and we have had a lot of experience with fevers! They are scary but the moms always seem more worried then the nurses and Doctors. We went to the ER once with a temp. of 106 and hallucinations and the nurses were so calm about it - I of course was not! Good luck.

Hi M., I'm an RN (and a mom). The important things to watch for during an illness with a high fever are fluid intake (pedialyte is ideal and preferable to water or juice) and how your child looks overall: is she pale, limp, listless, or lethargic. Some indications of dehydration are no urination in 8 hrs. or a whitish, sticky, "dry" tongue. If these things occur, or if your child just doesn't look right to you (because, as a mom, your intuition is a valuable indicator) you should take her to the ER if her pediatrician is not available to see her. Also, if she is becoming more congested or having any difficulty breathing, you should seek medical attention immediately. There is always an MD on call for a medical practice, so you should be able to contact someone from her pediatrician's office after hours if needed. It is normal to be scared when your baby has a high fever. I was terrifed when my son got the flu one year and I couldn't get his fever down. You should ask your pediatrician if you are giving her the optimal dose of tylenol and/or motrin for her weight, the over the counter doses listed on the package are for the average weight of a child for the age (don't change your dosing without talking to the doctor first). When you put her down for the night, cover her lightly to minimize the fever. The research used to indicate that febrile seizures were related to how quickly the temp spiked upward rather than the actual temp, so, although you are right to be concerned about seizures it may not be that likely to happen. I don't know if the current research still supports this theory, though (again, check with the doctor). If she is still running that high of a fever after a few days, it would be prudent for her pediatrician to make sure she doesn't have a bacterial infection of some sort rather than a virus (infuenza is caused by a virus). If she's not better within a few days, or seems to be getting worse, you should definitely take her back to the doctor. Good luck, I hope she gets better soon:). L. E.

Acid reflux is such a common problem you'd think it would be simple to spot and treat.

Discharge: A bloody or pustular discharge coming from the nipples often indicates breast disease such as breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic. The evidence of this discharge usually denotes a malignant condition that requires immediate diagnosis in order to take proper steps in treating it.

Inverted Nipples: In conjunction with other symptoms, when the nipples appear inverted or flattened, breast diseases such as inflammatory breast cancer and breast cancer may be possible. The symptom often coincides with other symptoms such as pain and swelling.

Pain: Pain in the breasts and nipples, although indicative of several conditions and issues, can be a telltale sign of breast disease. When the pain accompanies such symptoms as nipple discharge, breast swelling or lumps, contact your physician.

Peeling of Skin: Peeling or flaking of the nipple skin, in conjunction with other indicative symptoms, is symptomatic of breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Lumps: Noticeable lumps in or surrounding breast tissue, such as underneath your arms, indicate both benign and malignant breast diseases. Lumps that come and go with a woman's menstrual cycle are normal hormonal occurrences, however, when lumps don't go away it may be indicative of malignant breast disease.

Swollen Lymph Nodes: lymph nodes under your arms, in your breasts and sometimes in your neck become swollen and hard when breast disease and other conditions are apparent. Lymph nodes swell to fight off infection, which is a normal function, but when the lymph nodes continue to swell without going down, contacting your doctor is necessary to make a diagnosis.

Signs and symptoms of eye disease are not only signals that something is amiss with your vision, they could also indicate ailments in other areas of your body. Indeed, many times an ophthalmologist can diagnose signs of such ailments as diabetes by a simple eye examination. Thus paying attention your eyes give can not only save your vision, but could also possibly save your life.

Bleeding Never ignore bleeding, especially in the eyes. According to the Nethealthbook website, bleeding is always cause for alarm. It could be that a blood vessel is hemmorrhaging. In the case of a person with diabetes, it could be diabetic retinopathy, in which blood leaks from brittle vessels. If an ophthalmologist does not evaluate that condition right away, it could lead to blindness.

Blind Spots: Blind spots could be an early sign of glaucoma. Sadly, often a patient doesn't even notice them until they invade his main area of vision. The Nethealthbook website notes that such spots could be an early sign of glaucoma. Evaluation by an eye doctor becomes key to avoiding irreversible blindness.

Blurred/Distorted Vision: Any change in vision is a sign that you should contact your ophtalmologist. This is true especially if you notice blurriness, distortion or clouding in any part of your vision. According to the Docshop website, it could be a common ailment such as astigmatism, which means that objects appear distorted because your cornea has assumed an abnormal shape. This could also be a sign of other common eye problems such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, which a pair of eyeglasses or contacts can fix.

Peripheral Vision Loss: According to the Docshop website, our peripheral vision is important in that it helps us discern danger from behind. Perhaps the best example of this is when you drive or ride a bicycle. You need to be able to see on either side of you. Thus if you notice a change in your side vision, go to an ophthalmologist and have them test the pressure behind your eyeballs; it could be glaucoma. If the doctor catches this early, he might be able to save your sight. By the time the disease causes pain, or that a significant amount of your vision is already gone, it is most likely too late.

Because there are many possible conditions that follow under the umbrella of heart disease, the related symptoms are numerous. But here are some key symptoms to be aware of:

Chest Pain or Chest Discomfort: Few symptoms are more alarming than chest pain. In the minds of many people, chest pain equals heart pain. And while many other conditions can cause chest pain, cardiac disease is so common - and so dangerous - that the symptom of chest pain should never be dismissed out of hand as being insignificant. "Chest pain" is an imprecise term. It is often used to describe any pain, pressure, squeezing, choking, numbness or any other discomfort in the chest, neck, or upper abdomen, and is often associated with pain in the jaw, head, or arms. It can last from less than a second to days or weeks, can occur frequently or rarely, and can occur sporadically or predictably. This description of chest pain is obviously very vague, and as you might expect, many medical conditions aside from heart disease can produce symptoms like this.

Lightheadedness or Dizziness: Episodes of lightheadedness or dizziness can have many causes, including anemia (low blood count) and other blood disorders, dehydration, viral illnesses, prolonged bed rest, diabetes, thyroid disease, gastrointestinal disturbances, liver disease, kidney disease, vascular disease, neurological disorders, dysautonomias, vasovagal episodes, heart failureand cardiac arrhythmias. Because so many different conditions can produce these symptoms, anybody experiencing episodes of lightheadedness or dizziness ought to have a thorough and complete examination by a physician. And since disorders of so many organ systems can cause these symptoms, a good general internist or family doctor may be the best place to start.

Syncope (Fainting/Loss of Consciousness): Syncope is a sudden and temporary loss of consciousness, or fainting. It is a common symptom - most people pass out at least once in their lives - and often does not indicate a serious medical problem. However, sometimes syncope indicates a dangerous or even life-threatening condition, so when syncope occurs it is important to figure out the cause.

Fatigue, Lethargy or Daytime Sleepiness: Fatigue, lethargy or somnolence (daytime sleepiness) are very common symptoms. Fatigue or lethargy can be thought of as an inability to continue functioning at one's normal levels. Somnolence implies, in addition, that one either craves sleep - or worse, finds oneself suddenly asleep, a condition known as narcolepsy - during the daytime. While fatigue and lethargy can be symptoms of heart disease (particularly, of heart failure), these common and non-specific symptoms can also be due to disorders of virtually any other organ system in the body. Similar to lightheadedness and dizziness, individuals with fatigue and lethargy need a good general medical evaluation in order to begin pinning down a specific cause. Somnolence is often caused by nocturnal sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome or insomnia. All these sleep disturbances, however, are more common in patients with heart disease.

A High-Dose Influenza Vaccine Designed Specifically for People 65 Years of Age and Older 1

Adults 65 years and older suffer disproportionally from influenza-related morbidity and mortality 2,3 Immunity decreases as we age. 1 While seniors have the highest influenza immunization rate of any age group (>60%), 4 in the elderly, vaccine effectiveness is about half of that in healthy adults and varies depending on the outcome measures and the study population. 3

This may be because the immune system naturally weakens over time. This phenomenon, known as immunosenescence, also renders seniors less responsive to standard dose † influenza vaccine. 1

Adults over 65 represent 15% of the general population. 5 In the 2014-2015 Influenza Season, seniors accounted for about 70% of flu-related hospitalizations and about 90% of flu-related deaths 2. Aditionally, the estimated 12,000 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths attributed to the flu annually in Canada – among all age groups – are often underreported. 3 In addition, influenza can trigger conditions such as strokes and heart attacks, 3,6-8 or worsen diabetes and renal diseases. 3,9-10

But sometimes acid reflux symptoms are less than obvious or easy to mistake for something else.

If left untreated, heartburn can lead to Barrett's esophagus, which is a precursor to cancer, says Timothy Pfanner, MD, assistant professor of internal medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, in College Station.

Here are some symptoms—both common and unusual—that could mean you have acid reflux.

Chest pain, which occurs because stomach acid is splashing into the esophagus, is a classic acid reflux symptom. But the pain can last longer and be more intense than expected. Many people mistake heartburn for a heart attack. You can never ignore chest pain, especially if it gets worse when you exercise or exert yourself. (Check out Heartburn or Heart Attack? How to Tell the Difference.)

If you're having chest pain, check with your doctor to make sure you're not having a heart attack, says Walter J. Coyle, MD, gastroenterologist with Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines in La Jolla, Calif.

The acid that is supposed to stay in your stomach is more likely to escape into your esophagus when you lie down or bend over, causing heartburn.

"If you're sitting up straight, gravity helps keep food in the stomach," says Dr. Coyle. "If you lose the gravity, you're more prone to reflux."

That's why people with chronic heartburn raise the head of their bed, and why they shouldn't eat big meals right before bedtime.

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 name "Cat flu" is misleading because even though cats suffer from a similar disease, the disease is not contracted from cats. The symptoms in dogs are due to intestinal involvement and very unlike flu symptoms. Dry, windy weather sees more cases which occur mostly in puppies, but previously unexposed, unvaccinated adult dogs are also at risk. Even with the best treatment available some animals still don't survive, so vaccination is of paramount importance in the prevention of this terrible disease.

This serious disease is caused by one of the smallest viruses known to man called Canine Parvovirus (CPV).(Parvo is the Latin for small). As many as 300 000 virus particles will fit into a millimeter!

Albeit so small the virus is extremely tough and will survive most disinfectants. It may stay alive in the environment for as long as two years if conditions are favourable. In 1978 when the first cases of Parvovirus in dogs were seen, the virus spread all over the world in a matter of months, often without the involvement of dogs in the transmission.

Massive numbers of virus occur in the stool of a sick dog. One gram of faeces may contain enough virus to infect 10 million susceptible dogs!

The virus need certain enzymes to grow. These enzymes are found in rapid growing cells like the ones lining the intestinal tract. These cells grow quickly enough so that the intestinal lining is renewed every two to three days. If the virus grow inside these cells they break up leaving large areas of damaged lining that lead to severe loss of body fluids. The normal intestinal flora which under ordinary circumstances are pretty harmless, can now invade the body through the damaged areas.

  • Often a high fever
  • Listlessness
  • No appetite
  • Continuous vomiting or foaming at the mouth
  • Very smelly diarrhoea that frequently becomes blood-tinged
  • White or bluish gums
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dehydration � animals appear to have lost weight overnight

The symptoms usually appear very suddenly and susceptible pups may die within a few hours. Pups with large numbers of antibodies wil show much lighter symptoms. In rare instances animals may develop infection of the heart muscles with fatal results.

A bitch with good immunity against parvo will transfer these antibodies to her pups in the uterus. They will then be protected to a large degree for a period of six to twelve weeks. Exposure to the virus, whether naturally or through vaccination wil enhance this immunity. Healthy puppies, like the one on the left should thus be vaccinated at six weeks of age, again four weeks later and preferably a third time another four weeks later. It is very unlikely that a pup that has had three properly administered vaccinations will contract the disease. It is however important to stress that puppies must be healthy and free from worms before they can be vaccinated.

Because Parvovirus is one of the most frustrating diseases a vet has to put up with, vaccination remains the only efficient way of saving the puppy owner a lot of tears and regret.

At present there are no affordable injectable drugs that kill viruses in the body, thus no specific treatment exists once the virus is inside the body. Treatment is aimed at curbing secondary bacteria, stopping vomiting and replenishing body fluids.

  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-emetics
  • Intravenous fluid administration
  • Inteflora or similar probiotics to replenish gut flora (beneficial bacteria in the intestines)
  • Activated charcoal to bind toxins in the gut
  • Oral electrolytes if animals are still drinking and not vomiting
  • Small quantities of bland food eg. rice and cooked chicken
  • Blood transfusion in very severe cases

Fibromyalgia means widespread pain in the muscles, but this syndrome causes many other symptoms. 1 Lab tests seldom validate your condition and the results often make you feel like a hypochondriac. Pressing on tender points can diagnose fibromyalgia, but the exam still does not explain all of your symptoms. 2

People with fibromyalgia often describe their symptoms as a flu-like infection that doesn’t go away. It leaves you exhausted and unable to think or find the right words (symptoms of fibro fog). 3 With fibromyalgia, you have trouble sleeping and wake up stiff and achy. 4 Your symptoms can be debilitating and you probably feel as though you have to push yourself to get anything done. 5,6

  • Pain all over
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Brain fog
  • Morning stiffness
  • Muscle knots, cramping, weakness
  • Digestive disorders
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Balance problems
  • Itchy/burning skin
  • Affects 3 to 5 percent of the general population 7
  • Occurs in people of all ages, even children
  • Men develop fibromyalgia too, although more women are diagnosed with it
  • Symptoms are chronic but may fluctuate throughout the day
  • Roughly one-quarter of people with fibromyalgia are work-disabled 4
  • Three drugs are FDA-approved for fibromyalgia treatment

Mycoplasma may be the only infection in a body or can be a co-infection of Lyme. There are various species of mycoplasmas. Approximately 60% of Lyme infected people also have mycoplasmal infections. The most common are Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, M. genitalium, M. penetrans,and some other species. In some cases multiple mycoplasmal infections are present in Lyme Disease, thereby complicating the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease because the symptoms are similar.

Mycoplasma infections can independently cause many of the signs and symptoms found in Lyme Disease, and they may exacerbate the clinical signs and symptoms and also complicate treatment of the Mycoplasma condition. Some people cycle in with Borrelia and various mycoplasmas in their blood cells.

    I have now been using progesterone cream for two months, and I'm already experiencing a difference. I had only one migraine this month instead of many, no cramps, less spotting, and a lighter flow. I highly recommend to have your hormones checked if any of these symptoms apply to you!

    26) I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for years and have been treated with meds like prozac and paxil off and on. Anxiety is still a problem, especially around my period and ovulation. I also have been diagnosed with infertility due to endometriosis. I recently had the saliva tests done and my progesterone levels were very low. I now am on 50mg of bioidentical progesterone. This is my first month and my anxiety has gotten worse!

    I am just wondering if after a few months on the progesterone will things get better? I am really worried and stressed every day if I am going to wake up with anxiety. I feel like it has taken over my life.

    25) I was just tested. My progesterone level was.5! I have had anxiety issues for months. I also have severe insomnia. I felt nonhuman. I am angry all the time.

    My poor husband has been fantastic, but I feel miserable. I am on zoloft, xanax and restoril until my hormone replacement arrives this week. I am only 42 years old. I have had this issue for years. I am so tired of being told I am too young for this. Why aren't more doctors and people talking about this?

    24) I would suggest as already mentioned, to seek out a doctor who does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. It is all natural and much better for our bodies. This really makes a difference for all of those mentioned side effects of low progesterone. I am on 50mg for the very first time, so am already feeling a little better, however, will be able to tell after a few more months. Thanks

    23) all of these women have some of the same symptoms I had and several more. Severe headaches at times, amenorrhea, overwhelming fatigue, thinning of my skin, horrible panic attacks, low back pain, urinating frequently, malaise, respiratory infections that recurred over and over for no reason.

    I researched it extensively, as no doctor was helping at all. I started on progesterone cream, natural progesterone only. Large dosing initially to combat the dominance of the estrogen. I used 200mg daily to start and within days the symptoms subsided. Now on daily lower doses. everyone is different but it was a miracle for me.

    22) I just found out my progesterone level is low after TTC for 14 mos. I had to push doc for a test. It is a 5.4, what is a normal level? I too, notice my hair has been thinning and I have complained to the doc several times about heavy, clotty periods.

    21) Waited to raise my son, finish my education and finally for my second - now good marriage - and bam! Now I am told I am in menopause!

    Started my own research and using progesterone capsules and cream - trying to have this planned baby. No, traditional male docs just aren't following through here. You've got to do your own legwork and pray!

    Whether wanting to deal with the menopause or try to reverse the bioclock, I recommend the hormone cream at least. Good luck out there!

    20) I get severe headaches, body chills, severe cramping, fatigue and heavy bleeding before my period starts and during as well. My gyno tested and said that my progesterone is low, but the pills are not working. I had a miscarriage because of this hormone issue.

    19) I have been on natural progesterone that is made specifically for me at a compounding pharmacy for the last five years. I was diagnosed through saliva testing, which is more specific than blood.

    I had the symptoms mentioned by others. Severe bad moods, period slightly erratic, severe headaches caused by both migraines and at other times by tension, exhaustion, no libido, and hair falling out.

    Oft realisiert man gar nicht, dass man eine Grippe hat: In 80 Prozent der Fälle verläuft die Infektion mit Influenza unbemerkt oder nur wie eine leichte Erkältung. Jährlich sind nach Schätzungen der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) 10 bis 20 Prozent der Weltbevölkerung betroffen, aber die Mehrheit davon bekommt das nicht mit.

    Ist eine Grippe immer lebensgefährlich?

    Influenza kann lebensgefährlich sein, etwa im Rahmen einer Seuche durch einen neuartigen Virustyp, der besonders aggressiv ist. Das kommt aber nur sehr selten vor.

    Harmlose Erkältungskrankheiten, oft als "grippaler Infekt" bezeichnet, können ähnliche Symptome wie eine Grippe verursachen: Husten, eine erhöhte Körpertemperatur oder Kopfschmerzen können zum Beispiel auch hier auftreten. Diese von anderen Viren ausgelösten Infektionen unterscheiden sich von Influenza durch die Schwere des Verlaufs: Sie gehen nur selten mit Fieber einher und führen in der Regel nur zu einer kurzzeitigen Abgeschlagenheit, die lediglich etwas Schonung bedarf.

    Körperliche Schonung und Bettruhe sind wichtig, damit die Grippe schnell ausheilt.

    So wirken Neuraminidasehemmer

    Medikamente gegen Grippe

    Zur gezielten Behandlung der Grippe stehen antivirale – also gegen Viren wirkende – Stoffe zur Verfügung: Oseltamivir und Zanamivir hemmen die Neuraminidase, eines der Oberflächenmoleküle des Virus. Die Neuraminidase spielt unter anderem eine wichtige Rolle bei der Freisetzung der Viren von einer infizierten Zelle.

    Jährlich fällig: Die Grippeimpfung

    Es existieren wirksame Impfstoffe gegen die Grippe. Der Inhalt wird regelmäßig angepasst, damit er möglichst gut gegen die häufigsten aktuellen Virustypen der Saison schützt. Deshalb und weil die Wirksamkeit der Impfung nicht lange anhält, ist jährlich eine neue Impfung notwendig.

    Wegen des sich ständig verändernden Virus kann jedoch keine Impfung hundertprozentig schützen. Um Infektionen vorzubeugen ist es daher außerdem empfehlenswert, auf eine gute Händehygiene zu achten. Bei Erkältungs- und Grippeepidemien kann es sinnvoll sein, auf die Begrüßung per Handschlag zu verzichten, um einer möglichen Ansteckung vorzubeugen.

    Die Hände richtig waschen – unser Video zeigt, wie das geht:

    Zentrale Rolle im Genom der Influenza-Viren spielen die Glykoproteine (Eiweiße mit Zuckergruppen) Hämagglutinin und Neuraminidase. Hämagglutinin dient dem Anheften der Viren an Rezeptoren der Wirtszellen, Neuraminidase spielt eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Freisetzung neuer Viren.

    Hämagglutinin bindet an spezifische Rezeptoren der Epithelzellen und bewirkt so die Aufnahme des Virus in die Wirtszelle über Endocytose (Einstülpungsvorgang der Zellmembran, bei der ein Teil des Außenmediums in das Zellinnere aufgenommen wird). Hämagglutinin bewirkt weiterhin eine Verschmelzung der Virushülle mit der Zellmembran und das Viruscapsid (Virus-RNA mit Eiweißschutzhülle) wird in die Wirtszelle freigegeben (Uncoating). Dieser Vorgang ist bereits 30 Minuten nach dem Anbinden an die Zelle abgeschlossen. Im weiteren Prozess werden das virale Genom im Zellkern der Wirtszelle kopiert (repliziert) und neue Viruspartikel im Cytosol(flüssige Matrix der ausfüllenden Grundstruktur der Zelle) fertiggestellt. Diese gelangen wieder zur Zellmembran, welche die Viruspartikel umschließt und aus der Zelle transportiert (Exocytose). Die neu entstandenen Viren werden durch die Neuraminidase von den Zellen abgetrennt und können nun weitere Zellen infizieren. [6] Dieser Vorgang ist nach 6 Stunden abgeschlossen. [7]

    Die Inkubationszeit ist im Wesentlichen von 2 Punkten abhängig:

    • Dosis der Viruspartikel: Je nach Menge der Viruspartikel kann die genannte Inkubationszeit variieren. Eine sehr hohe Dosis kann somit die Inkubationszeit verkürzen.
    • Verfassung des Infizierten: Der Gesundheitszustand des Betroffenen kann Einfluss auf die Inkubationszeit haben. Bei einem sehr effizienten Immunsystem mit entsprechenden Antikörpern kann der Ausbruch der Krankheit in dieser Zeit sogar noch abgewendet werden. In diesem Fall ist es möglich, dass die Infektion mit dem Virus gar nicht registriert wird.

    Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed by a doctor with a TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) test and an evaluation of your symptoms. Symptoms of hypothyroidism may be general, such as tiredness and constipation, and can often be confused with other health conditions. Symptoms usually appear slowly, over several months or years. No one can predict exactly which symptoms a person will develop or how severe the symptoms will be. Some people have many symptoms by the time they are diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Others have few, if any, symptoms. Because the symptoms are so variable, it’s important to talk with your doctor about your symptoms and to have a TSH test.

    Here are some common symptoms* to look out for:

    Weight gain due to fluid retention

    Increased sensitivity to cold

    Brittle fingernails and hair

    Dry, rough, pale skin

    Muscle and joint pain

    Heavy menstrual bleeding
    or irregular periods

    • starkes Krankheitsgefühl
    • plötzlich auftretendes, hohes Fieber
    • Halsschmerzen
    • Husten
    • Schnupfen, laufende Nase

    Darüber hinaus verursacht der Virus-Infekt oft folgende Symptome:

    • Schüttelfrost
    • starke Kopf-, Muskel-, Rücken- und Gliederschmerzen
    • Schmerzen hinter dem Brustbein
    • Heiserkeit
    • Luftnot
    • Übelkeit
    • Appetitlosigkeit
    • massive Erschöpfung

    Zunächst ähneln die Symptome einer Grippe denen einer Erkältung. Große Unterschiede zeigen sich erst im Krankheitsverlauf und in Schwere der Erkrankung. Ein erster Indikator für eine echte Grippe ist der plötzliche und heftige Beginn, der sich keineswegs schleichend ankündigt. Mehrere Symptome treten gleichzeitig und intensiv auf, während Anzeichen einer Erkältung sich erst nach und nach entwickeln. Bei einer Influenza kommt es schnell zu einem typischen Symptom: das hohe Fieber, welches eine Temperatur von 39 bis 41 Grad Celsius erreichen kann und tagelang anhält. Der Puls geht schneller, es kommt zu Schweißausbrüchen, gesteigerter Atmung, glänzenden Augen, Schwindel, Wahrnehmungsstörungen und Verwirrtheit. Weiterhin kann das Fieber Krämpfe auslösen. Eine mögliche Therapie besteht, nach Rücksprache mit dem Arzt, in der Behandlung durch Medikamente, die das Fieber senken können. Weiterhin fördert das geschwächte Immunsystem von Grippepatienten, die Entwicklung von bakteriellen Infektionen. Es kann somit insbesondere bei älteren Menschen zu Komplikationen kommen. Entzündungen des Nervensystems und Lungenentzündungen sind mögliche Folgen.

    Der Virus-Infekt ist schon während der Inkubationszeit, also dem Zeitraum zwischen Infektion und Ausbruch einer Erkrankung, ansteckend. Die Inkubationszeit beträgt bei einer Grippe ein paar Stunden bis drei Tage. Nach Ausbruch der Influenza besteht die Gefahr einer Ansteckung dann noch etwa drei bis fünf Tage. Kinder können das Virus sogar bis zu sieben Tage, nach Auftreten der ersten Symptome, weitergeben.

    Wie sieht die Behandlung einer Grippe (Influenza) aus?

    Die Therapie der Grippe hängt davon ab, ob die Erkrankung als mild oder schwer eingestuft wird und, ob eine zusätzliche Infektion mit Bakterien vorliegt. In vielen Fällen können Patienten lediglich durch eine symptomatische Behandlung versuchen, die Beschwerden der Krankheit zu lindern. Je nach Fall ist es bei einer Virusgrippe ratsam, nach Rücksprache mit dem behandelnden Arzt, spezielle Grippemittel oder Antibiotika einzusetzen.

    Die Aktivität der akuten Atemwegserkrankungen durch das Virus ist in der 2. Kalenderwoche im Jahr 2018 deutschlandweit gesunken. In der laufenden Grippe-Saison sind nach Angaben des Robert Koch Instituts bislang 14 Betroffene gestorben, von denen sechs mit Influenza-B-Viren infiziert waren. Ein Großteil der Patienten (79 Prozent) war 60 Jahre oder älter. Seit der 40. Meldewoche im Jahr 2017 wurden insgesamt 6.433 Influenzainfektionen bestätigt.

    Wie kann ich mich umfassend gegen das Virus schützen?

    Die Grippeimpfung wird nicht von allen gesetzlichen Krankenkassen übernommen. Falls Sie zur Risikogruppe gehören, kann das negative Konsequenzen für Ihre Gesundheit bedeuten. Sollten Sie sich schützen wollen, obwohl Ihre Kasse nicht zahlt, müssen Sie ein Privatrezept in Anspruch nehmen und die Impfung beim Arzt selbst finanzieren.

    Wenn Sie Ihre Gesundheit durch umfassende Schutzimpfungen sicherstellen wollen, profitieren Sie von dem DFV-AmbulantSchutz. Unsere Kranken­zusatz­versicherung übernimmt nicht nur die Kosten für alle Schutzimpfungen, die die Ständige Impfkommission am Robert Koch-Institut (STIKO) empfiehlt. Der DFV-AmbulantSchutz leistet auch für weitere sinnvolle Schutzimpfungen und Vorsorgeuntersuchungen. Der Versicherungsschutz gewährleistet die Übernahme Ihrer gesetzlichen Zuzahlungen sowie Schutz­impfungen als Prophylaxe für Auslandsreisen.
