8 Reasons You Get Dizzy

SPECIAL FROM Grandparents.com Who hasn’t gotten up quickly from sitting down and felt a little bit dizzy? Or had a stomach virus and things spun a bit? But while dizziness can be a side effect of minor health issues, it can also be a sign of a serious health problem. “Dizziness is absolutely not normal,” says Donnica Moore, M.D., president of Sapphire Women’s Health Group in Chester, N.J. “It tells you that something is wrong. It could be something simple and very easy to fix or it could be a sign of something else going on in your body.” Dizziness is a more common complaint among older adults—probably because it’s a side effect of nearly every prescription drug (and many over-the-counter medications), and because age-related changes in your body can cause dizziness, Dr. Moore says. In many cases, a little self-care can cure dizziness, but, adds Christopher Asandra, M.D., an anti-aging specialist and chief medical officer at NuMale, a national men’s health and wellness center with locations in eight cities around the country, you must take dizziness seriously, because even if it is not signaling a serious health condition, it can be the cause of dire health consequences.
 “I’ve been an emergency room doctor and I have seen many patients whose dizziness leads them to fall. They break a hip, they have head trauma, or they break something else,” Dr. Asandra says. Dr. Moore agrees. The first thing you...

In this study, we screened 110 Taiwanese children (61 males and 49 females) with T1D onset before the age of 5 years for mutations of INS and KCNJ11. We identified one missense heterozygous mutation in KCNJ11 (c.989A>G, p.Y330C) and no INS mutations among 28 probands. This is the first study to screen patients with autoantibody-negative T1D diagnosed before the age of 5 years for INS and KCNJ11 mutations in Taiwan. Although KCNJ11 mutations are always reported in patients with permanent neonatal diabetes, this gene mutation can be detected after 6 months of age. Further studies in other patients with type 1B diabetes an...

ConclusionThis endoscopy-based study revealed the most common histology of benign SB tumors were hamartoma and adenoma, and malignant ones were lymphomas, GISTs, adenocarcinomas and metastatic cancers. Most of them were male gender, except for GISTs, and with proximal location, except for lymphomas. Further large-scale investigation efforts are warranted to elucidate the epidemiology of SB tumors.

The most characteristic marker of DKD is albuminuria, which is associated with renal disease progression and cardiovascular events. Renal hemodynamics changes, oxidative stress, inflammation, hypoxia and overactive renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) are involved in ...

ConclusionsThe experimental results from the pharmacological research enable the validation of their traditional uses in several of the groups of diseases in the countries of origin and reveal these plants to be a valuable source for therapeutic molecules. However, more toxicity assays and clinical trials would be necessary to establish optimal and safe doses of consumption on the application of these medicinal plants.Graphical abstract

Conclusion: The present study identified isoliquiritigenin as the most active antioxidant compound in G. uralensis. It exerts its effect by activating the transcription factors DAF-16/FOXO and SKN-1/Nrf2 which regulate many genes, including those which code for proteins of antioxidative response. This implicates isoliquiritigenin as a possible supplement drug against oxidative stress especially in neurodegenerative diseases.Graphical Abstract
