We Can Transfer Information Using All Of Our Sense Organs Except For The Nose. Is There Any Way To Share Information Through Smell?

Well, the nose knows! It can pick up space: Brain mechanisms for extracting spatial information from smell. Forty years ago, von Békésy demonstrated that the spatial source of an odorant is determined by comparing input across nostrils... found nostril-specific responses in primary olfactory cortex that were predictive of the accuracy of left versus right localization. Additionally, left versus right localization preferentially engaged a portion of the superior temporal gyrus previously implicated in visual and auditory localization, suggesting that localization information extracted from smell was then processed in a convergent brain system for spatial representation of multisensory inputs. It is also used by doctors to pick up signs of ill health: Breath odor - PubMed Health - National Library of Medicine - PubMed Health Diseases that may be associated with breath odor: And affecting chemosensory-dependent behaviors: From odor and pheromone transduction to the organization of the sen... Smell is even used in mate selection: from the animals which identify estrus via hormones in the urine to the detection of Major histocompatibility complexes in sweat, we literally sniff out our Continue reading >>

    How does an infection affect blood sugar? I understand the disease process, however what is the true science behind it?




    1 Answer







    Any type of Infection causes a stress response in the body by increasing the amount of certain hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones work against the action of insulin so production of glucose increases, which results in high blood sugar levels.
    In a person who does not have diabetes, extra insulin is produced to counter these effects, but this is not possible for someone with diabetes.
    When your blood sugar is high, the white blood cells in your body are unable to “mop up” bacteria because they cannot move around at their normal speed and do not reach the infection site quickly enough to engulf and kill the bacteria.

    So in a diabetic person, hyperglycemia persists and it can lead to ketoacidosis during infection or any other type of stress.

According to a collaborative study between the University of Texas Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center that was published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society in June of 2014, people over the age of 65 who are treated with thiazide diuretics (such as HCTZ -- which is hydrochlorthiazide -- or Hygroton), are in danger of developing several metabolic defects. This study pointed out three metabolic defects that include hyponatremia (low sodium), hypokalemia (low potassium), and acute kidney injury where there was at least a 25% decrease in kidney function. Wow! And there's more that was not included in this article such as causing high cholesterol and uric acid (predisposes to gout), insulin resistance (predisposes to type 2 diabetes), and low magnesium! And this is the first drug of choice according to the major medical associations that set the guidelines for treating high blood pressure! Wow! It makes you wonder about the rest of the drugs used in managing this disease. Lifestyle remains the best treatment for managing hypertension. For more information, please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

What Are The Dangers Of Not Treating Your Diabetes?

The effects of diabetes manifest in nearly all organ systems of the body and it left untreated, diabetes can lead to heart disease, kidney failure, loss of vision, loss of foot etc. But what is cause of these effects of diabetes? As you know, diabetics have higher blood glucose levels than do normal people, the excess blood sugar starts getting deposited in the blood vessels of diabetics, which in turn leads to two sets of long-term complications both related to abnormalities in blood vessel Microvascular complications: these complications are due to abnormalities in small blood vessels. They are Diabetic retinopathy affecting the eyes/vision: can result in sudden/accelerated loss of vision Diabetic nephropathy affecting the kidneys: diabetes type 2 is a leading cause of renal failure in India Diabetic neuropathy including diabetic foot, erectile dysfunction, GI and urinary problems, gangrene of foot etc . Increased risk of infection and sepsis: due to diabetic angiopathy (injury to blood vessels) and immune compromise To read in detail about what % of diabetics get these and after how many years and how good control of blood sugar levels help: read Diabetes complications: what is Continue reading >>

What Is The Longest A Diabetic Can Go Without An Injection?

Type one diabetes at the most two to three days, by that time they would be severely ketotic, risking a sometimes fatal diabetes hyperglycemic ketoacidotic coma. For type 2 diabetes mostly that can be for months, even years, like we see in those war torn areas. My erstwhile partner, when I met him already a senior physician, told me that the experience during WW II in The Netherlands, those mostly type 2 diabetics who couldn’t get insulin didn’t die from not having insulin (which at the end was air-dropped by the British into German occupied territories), in fact did quite well with their blood sugars, unfortunately for a very sad reason: the Dutch famine of 1944–45 - Wikipedia costing about 18,000 people their lives. Of course not having their diabetes well controlled would cause them to develop a lot more complications so would shorten their lifespan appreciably. Continue reading >>
