Understanding common cold
A cold is an upper respiratory infection caused by any one of hundreds of different viruses.
Within a short time, the virus takes over and forces the cells to produce thousands of new virus particles. In response to this viral invasion, the body assemble its defences:
- The body temperature rises, enhancing the immune response.
- The nose and throat release chemicals that spark the immune system.
- Injured cells produce chemicals called prostaglandins, which trigger inflammation and attract infection-fighting white blood cells.
The symptoms you experience as a cold are actually the body’s natural immune response. In fact, by the time you feel like you are coming down with a cold, you have already been infected for a day and a half.
Symptoms And Signs Of Common Cold:
- Nasal stuffiness or drainage
- Sore or scratchy throat
- Watery eyes
- Low-grade fever
- Body aches
The common cold is an ailment that affects us not just during the winter, but also at other times of the year and it can be quite a draining experience.
Trying to get over a cold? There are lots of things you can do to ease the symptoms as you get better. We have some easy and natural home remedies for you so that you get relief from cold: Continue reading

Lung cancer is a disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If left untreated, this growth can spread beyond the lung in a process called metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas that derive from epithelial cells. The abnormal cells do not develop into healthy lung tissue, they divide rapidly and form tumours. As tumours become larger and more numerous, they undermine the lung’s ability to provide the bloodstream with oxygen.
Symptoms of Lung Cancer:
Cancer symptoms are quite varied and depend on where the cancer is located, where it has spread, and how big the tumour is.
Many symptoms of lung cancer affect the chest and air passages. These include:
- Harsh sounds while breathing (strider).
- Chronic bronchitis or pneumonia.
- Pain in the chest shoulder, or back from coughing.
- Changes in colour of the mucus that is coughed up from the lower airways (sputum).
- Coughing up blood, or blood in the sputum.
- Persistent or intense coughing.
- Difficulty breathing and swallowing.
- Hoarseness of the voice.
As lung cancer cells spread and use more of the body’s energy, it is possible to present symptoms that may also be associated with many other ailments. These include:
- Problems with brain function and memory
- Swelling in the neck or face
- Bleeding and blood clots
- Unexplained weight loss
- General weakness
- Fatigue Pain in joints or bones
Causes of Lung Cancer:
Lung cancer is now the second most common cancer in the UK and smoking accounts for 90% of cases. Cancer is ultimately the result of cells that uncontrollably grow and do not die.
Lung cancer occurs when a lung cell’s gene mutation makes the cell unable to correct DNA damage and unable to commit suicide.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both.
There are three types of diabetes:
Type 1 Diabetes:
The body does not produce insulin. Some people may refer to this type as insulin-dependent diabetes. People usually develop type 1 diabetes before their 40th year, often in early adulthood or teenage years.
Type 2 Diabetes (Gestational diabetes):
The body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or the cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance).
Some people may be able to control their type 2 diabetes symptoms by losing weight, following a healthy diet, doing plenty of exercise, and monitoring their blood glucose levels. However, type 2 diabetes is typically a progressive disease – it gradually gets worse – and the patient will probably end up have to take insulin, usually in tablet form.
Type 3 Diabetes:
This type affects females during pregnancy. Some women have very high levels of glucose in their blood, and their bodies are unable to produce enough insulin to transport all of the glucose into their cells, resulting in progressively rising levels of glucose.
Symptoms/ Signs of Diabetes:
- Increased Urination
- Weight loss
- Excessive Thirst
- Slow Healing
- Skin Problem
- Blur Vision
Complications linked to badly controlled diabetes:

Coughing means stimulation of sensory nerves in the lining of the respiratory passages – the tubes we use to breathe.
During coughing, a person intake short breath and the larynx (the voice box) close momentarily. The chest muscles and abdominal used for breathing contract, due to which more pressure needed to drive the air out the lungs when the larynx re-opens.
The result of this is blast of air comes out at high speed, scrubbing and clearing the airway to keep the respiratory passages free of irritating material.
Coughing is a common symptom when the airways are ‘tight’, as in asthma.
Coughing usually means the presence of something in respiratory passages that should not be there. This can be caused by breathing in dust particles in the air or when a piece of food goes down the wrong way.
It could also be a sign that an infection in the lungs is making the respiratory passages produce phlegm.

Tuberculosis (TB) is very common and an infectious disease that is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB primarily affects the lungs, but it can also affect organs in the central nervous system, lymphatic system, and circulatory system among others. Most people who are exposed to TB never develop symptoms because the bacteria can live in an inactive form in the body. But if the immune system weakens, such as in people with HIV or elderly adults, TB bacteria can become active. In their active state, TB bacteria cause death of tissue in the organs they infect. Active TB disease can be fatal if left untreated. The disease was called “consumption” in the past because of the way it would consume from within anyone who became infected.
Symptoms of tuberculosis:
Most people who become infected with the bacteria that cause tuberculosis actually do not present symptoms of the disease. However, when symptoms are present, they include:
- continued or a persistent cough of more than three weeks that brings up phlegm
- presence of streaks or drops of blood in the coughed up phlegm or sputum
- weight loss and fatigue and loss of appetite
- fever for a long duration that is not explained by any other cause
- night sweat.
Causes of tuberculosis:
Tuberculosis is ultimately caused by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis that is spread from person to person through airborne particles. This can happen when someone with the untreated, active form of tuberculosis coughs, speaks, sneezes, spits, laughs or sings. Some primary causes of tuberculosis are: Continue reading
