What is the relationship between lung disease and vitamin D deficiency, gland removal, and obesity?
ONCE AGAIN ABOUT USE VITAMIN DMost people with lung problems have a Vitamin D deficiency.
Doctors at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine (USA) found a connection between a lack of this substance and decreased lung function by examining patients with identified respiratory diseases. Doctors recorded that a decrease in vitamin D levels had a significant effect on impaired lung function, and concluded that vitamin D could play an important role in the prevention of pulmonary diseases. Therefore, doctors recommend stocking this vitamin for the future: eat fatty fish, more likely to be in the sun and, in case of a proven vitamin D deficiency, take it in capsules, after consulting with your doctor first.
“Ambulance” is returning Our parents remember this type of medical care well - when the case is not urgent, but serious help is needed. From April 2011, the system of emergency medical care will resume work in Moscow. The adult “ambulance” calls will be made by phone 03, then they will be transferred to separate consoles and distributed among emergency teams in district clinics. The new service is designed to unload ambulance employees from non-core responsibilities.REMOVING GLANDS AND OBESITYMany tonsils are removed in childhood. However, this simple procedure can provoke the development of obesity in the future, according to British researchers. They observed the weight dynamics of 795 children who had their glands or adenoids removed along with the glands. Moreover, all children had normal or slightly higher than normal weight. A year later, it was found that in 37% of children the body mass index increased by 5%, and in half - by almost a third!
Doctors insist that after surgery you should follow a diet and lead an active lifestyle.
