Fleming Medical, a Limerick based & Irish owned medical supplies company has recently made a donation of €85,000 worth of medical supplies to FADA or the Fire Ambulance Development Service in Africa. FADA based in Dublin and led by Fire Fighter, Brendan McCoy is focused on the development and training of a fire rescue service in the Western African country of Niger and specifically to the province of Zinder. Although two and a half times the size of Ireland, in 2011 the area has just one fire engine to service a population of 2.4 million.
FADA has sent many shipments of medical supplies & fire engines to West Africa since and has sent crews to teach the local fire rescue teams essential rescue service skills. The charity relies solely on donations of supplies and money in order to ship the goods to West Africa. Mark Fleming, MD of Fleming Healthcare said “We are delighted that we could help out such a worthy cause, all the team in FADA do great work for the people of Niger”.
Brendan McCoy, FADA said “On behalf of the charity we are so thrilled to have such a large donation from Fleming Medical, the donation in its entirety will be of such great use to the people of Niger”. An automated external defibrillator is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try restore a normal rhythm can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. There are many clips on YOUTUBE on the different or in the case of Fleming Medical we have our library of videos to demonstrate how to use the AED safely.
Accessible It is imperative that the AED is accessible by anyone, at any time when the facilities of the club are in use. Trained: Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an AED are lifesaving skills that can be learned in a short timeframe. Diagnosis: Hypoglycemia can be diagnosed by low blood sugar levels on glucometer or based on symptoms. Treatment should always be followed by some investigation, as to why the hypoglycemia occurred and what could be done to prevent its recurrence. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is diagnosed from a liver biopsy showing moderate to gross macrovesicular fatty change with or without inflammation (lobular or portal), mallory bodies, fibrosis, or cirrhosis and with negligible alcohol consumption (less than 40 g of ethanol per week).
Increased fatty acid uptake and synthesis (lipogenesis), suppression of mitochondrial B-oxidation, and impaired triglyceride secretion as VLDL.
Alternatively, steatosis and NASH could be attributed to the combined effects of severe peripheral IR and relative failure of humoral (adipokine) mediators that combat the effects of high insulin levels and fasting hyperglycemia on hepatic lipid turnover. Free radicals initiate the process derived from fat metabolism, in the setting of preexisting defects in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.
Leptin is coded for by the obesity gene & governs satiety through action at the hypothalamus.
Attempts should be made to modify potential risk factors (obesity, hyperlipidemia, and poor diabetic control). Necrosis may be coagulative, liquifactive, caseous, fat necrosis, gummatous necrosis or fibrinoid necrosis. While drugs can be used to treat the symptoms, they do little to improve actual problem of insulin resistance, therefore possibly furthering the progression. Lack of exercise coupled with a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugars causes increased insulin levels in the blood. Insulin resistance which leads to the metabolic syndrome is thought to be the underlying reason for high blood pressure, high LDL and VLDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, central obesity and chronic weight gain. The thyroid gland is about 2-inches long and lies in front of your throat below the prominence of thyroid cartilage sometimes called the Adam's apple.
The thyroid is part of the endocrine system, which is made up of glands that produce, store, and release hormones into the bloodstream so the hormones can reach the body's cells.
The hypothalamus produces TSH Releasing Hormone (TRH) that signals the pituitary to tell the thyroid gland to produce more or less of T3 and T4 by either increasing or decreasing the release of a hormone called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
When T3 and T4 levels are low in the blood, the pituitary gland releases more TSH to tell the thyroid gland to produce more thyroid hormones. If T3 and T4 levels are high, the pituitary gland releases less TSH to the thyroid gland to slow production of these hormones. The purpose of the Patient Guide to Insulin is to educate patients, parents, and caregivers about insulin treatment of diabetes. If you are like many people, you may think that osteoporosisa€”a condition marked by low bone mineral density, which leads to lowered bone strength and a heightened risk of fracturesa€”is something you will not have to worry about until later in life.

In this blog post, we will be focusing on Hypoglycemia – its definition, symptoms, and treatments. Glucose (sugar) is one of the body’s major sources of energy and is manufactured in the form of complex carbohydrates or simple sugar.

When blood sugar is critically low, the liver starts processing glycogen to convert it into new sugar.
Critically low blood sugar is when the body runs out of blood sugar and feels weak or if the brain’s demand for glucose increases. When the brain senses that the glucose level in the body is falling, it sends messages to other parts of the body. If you don’t have an insulin pump, fruit juices, raw fruit, soda, table sugar (at least 4 teaspoons) or candy are quick fixes. Complex carbohydrates such as sweet pastries, cookies, brownies, and other sweet treats don’t qualify as ideal first aid treatments, because these combine protein and fat.
Initially, the body would need about 15 grams of sugar to get their blood glucose back to normal. It is advisable to consume more carbohydrates once you’re past acute stage to normalize your blood glucose level. Prepare a detailed report and have your doctor check them to know whether your hypoglycemia is insulin pump or medication-induced. A family member, regular companion, or a roommate of yours should also be informed and educated about administering hypoglycemia treatments, just as you should be counseled on checking your blood glucose and managing your symptoms before going out or living alone. You already know the nature of the condition, what happens during an episode, how, and why it happens. Factors that increase the risk of prostate cancer include: older age, a family history of the disease, and race.
Prostate cancer is associated with urinary dysfunction as the prostate gland surrounds the prostatic urethra. Advanced prostate cancer can spread to other parts of the body, possibly causing additional symptoms. Often the first symptom is sudden collapse where the patient is not breathing and has no heartbeat. However it is recommended that you receive the correct training from your service provider on how to use the AED.
The G5 battery is one of three AEDs on the market that uses a medical grade battery, but it is the only one that can guarantee minimum of 4 years operational life; the others have a 2 year operational life.
Excess of Insulin dose or medication: Misadjusting the amount of insulin needed, misreading the scale of the syringe, wrong injection technique, and incorrect dosage of medication. She has done her post graduation from Pune University and she is currently pursuing her PhD in area of Diabetes Prevention. In liver, failure of insulin to stimulate glycogen synthesis and suppress gluconeogenesis leads to failure of insulin to downregulate hepatic glucose production.
His work led to the development of his Healthy For Life program and a book of the same name. However, the condition is largely reversible through a program of low glycemic eating, moderate exercise and nutritional supplementation, like Dr Strand’s Healthy For Life program. Over time and you become resistant to your own insulin so your body must compensate by producing higher levels. High blood insulin levels damage blood vessel walls which leads to 20 times grater risk of stroke or heart attack.
The thyroid has two sides called lobes that lie on either side of your windpipe, and is usually connected by a strip of thyroid tissue known as an isthmus. Two glands in the braina€”the hypothalamus and the pituitary communicate to maintain T3 and T4 balance. Learn about these diabetic neuropathies: peripheral, autonomic, proximal, and focal neuropathies.
As we always do here on EndocrineWeb, wea€™re going to break down that concept for you, and thata€™s why wea€™ve put together this Patient Guide to Treating High Cholesterol and Diabetes. By reviewing this information, youa€™re taking an important step to learn about diabetes and how insulin controls the disease to help you live a healthier life.
You may feel a lump, notice one side of your neck appears to be different, or your doctor may find it during a routine examination.
Here, you'll learn about some of the most important aspects of managing your child's condition.
When a person runs out of glucose, the body is facing a serious threat that could lead to brain damage.
This reaction triggers the below symptoms, your brain’s way of protecting itself from damage.
Candy is especially helpful so you might want to carry some around everyday especially if you are up for high level of activity.

Another 15 grams can be administered if nothing happens, and another 15 grams if the symptoms persist after 10 minutes.
Sometimes, however, prostate cancer does cause symptoms, often similar to those of diseases such as benign prostatic hyperplasia.
The most common symptom is bone pain, often in the vertebrae (bones of the spine), pelvis, or ribs.
When a patient is suffering a cardiac arrest CPR and early defibrillation is the only effective treatment for this event. She works with Diabetes Unit, KEM Hospital (Pune), Just for Hearts (Pune), Moraya Multispeciality Hospital & Healing Hands Clinic (Chinchwad) etc. The products of the reaction are another free radical and a lipid hydroperoxide, forms a second free radical and, amplifies the process. No difference in leptin level was seen between patients with worsening injury or those without on serial biopsy. Someone who has developed insulin resistance or the metabolic syndrome must produce higher levels of insulin than someone without the condition to maintain normal blood sugar levels. If the tumor is large, it may cause neck or facial pain, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, cough unrelated to a cold, hoarseness or voice change.
Hypoglycemic unawareness means the insulin level drops at rapid rate ahead of all symptoms, so they are not detected. The proper response is to elevate blood glucose level by eating before the brain runs out of stock.
If the symptoms do not go away after three tries or within 30 minutes, it’s time to call an ambulance.
If people around you, even strangers are aware of your hypoglycemia, you can prevent going into a coma. Outcomes depend on a person’s age and other health problems as well as how aggressive and extensive the cancer is.
These include frequent urination, nocturia (increased urination at night), difficulty starting and maintaining a steady stream of urine, hematuria (blood in the urine), and dysuria (painful urination).
Because the vas deferens deposits seminal fluid into the prostatic urethra, and secretions from the prostate gland itself are included in semen content, prostate cancer may also cause problems with sexual function and performance, such as difficulty achieving erection or painful ejaculation. Spread of cancer into other bones such as the femur is usually to the proximal part of the bone. AED`s work by looking for and treating electrical disturbances that can occur during a cardiac arrest.
Resistance to leptin in the CNS rather than the liver may be important in the pathogenesis of NASH. The condition is most common in adults but cases are being identified more and more early in children and younger adults.
At some point insulin production begins to drop or fail causing fasting blood sugar to rise above normal (Type 2 Diabetes).
Failing to respond will cause the blood glucose to continue to drop causing dizziness and trembling. In the United States it is more common in the African American population than the Caucasian population. A study based on the 1998 Patient Care Evaluation in the US found that about a third of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer had one or more such symptoms, while two thirds had no symptoms.
Prostate cancer in the spine can also compress the spinal cord, causing leg weakness and urinary and fecal incontinence. An automated External defibrillator is now a common piece of first aid equipment in sporting venues in Ireland in recent years.
Other factors that may be involved include a diet high in processed, red meat, or milk productsor low in certain vegetables.Prostate cancer is diagnosed by biopsy. It is important for your club to have a defibrillator due to tragic events of unexpected cardiac arrest. Medical imaging may then be done to determine if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
Having an AED at your sports club is not just important for your sports club but a useful resource for your community which could save someone life or even your life.
