How Long Infection Persists After Flu Or Cold
The Monsoon season is normally scary, not just for the heavy rainfalls that keep affecting your daily routine, but for a mouthful of infections rains bring along with them. We do understand how paramount monsoon is for us, but there’s no denying the fact that it is monsoon that stokes the fire that various infections try to spread. Flu and Cold are the most common infections that affect millions of people during monsoon, and while neither of the two can become serious, let alone fatal, they do affect our daily lives by causing excruciating body aches, among other symptoms. Fever ensures you are pinned down to your bed, wrapped in a healthy load of blankets.
While the popular preconceived notion is that your body is just preparing to fight the infection when your symptoms are at peak, the fact is the exact opposite – you experience those excruciating muscle aches or high fever precisely because your immune system isn’t just alive and kicking, it’s already at work, which is why you feel the fever and muscle aches. It’s your immune system that’s trying to eliminate the infection from your body.Read More

Heart Diseases and its Prevention
We are already into the eighteenth year of the Millenium, and while the World has seen unprecedented and exponential growth and advancements in almost every sector, there’s another area we have all been watching grow rapidly – stress levels. With bustling lives becoming busier and more and more competitive, the stress levels have risen gradually over the years and have reached a crescendo, as a result of which, we are witness to stress – related illnesses affecting more and more individuals. Along with many such illnesses, heart diseases have become a lot more common. What’s alarming is the rapid increase in the ratio at which heart diseases have grown among people across the 25 to 45 age group. While there isn’t much you can do about congenital heart conditions, you can certainly avoid lifestyle and stress induced heart diseases by simple changes in lifestyle. We understand how important it is to educate people about heart diseases and ways to prevent them and therefore, we have decided to dedicate an exclusive blog for the same.
Let’s first discuss heart conditions that occur by birth. Such diseases or conditions are known as Congenital Heart Diseases are another reason for deaths caused by heart related ailments. Congenital conditions are conditions present by birth, and there’s not a lot you can do about it other than understanding symptoms if any, and the problem. Congenital heart conditions like Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC), Ventrical Septal Defect or Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) occur by birth and need to be diagnosed and treated at the soonest.Read More

7 Must Have Pregnancy Tests
Pregnancy is an absolutely outstanding and beautiful time in a woman’s life, and something we believe needs to be celebrated. Yes, there are times when pregnant women feel like they spend a complete lifetime in the hospital, getting counselled by a Doctor or a specialist. There are those rare occasions when pregnant women feel like they have a health condition, as they have to undergo a host of changes that do take a toll. Trust us on this, though – in spite of all the ups and downs it comes with, pregnancy needs to be celebrated and enjoyed, as it literally is not just beautiful, but also miraculous – after all, you produce an entire human being out of a single cell, a cell you can watch only through an electronic microscope, that too barely! Beat this!!! And yes, pregnancy is distinctly female.
While we do advocate the theory that pregnancy needs to be celebrated, we also endorse the view that utmost care needs to be taken during it, and that includes a healthy diet, regular exercise and mental and physical rest. Along with this, we also recommend seven must have pregnancy tests – tests we believe every pregnant woman should undergo. Let’s delve deeper into the different must have tests at various stages of pregnancy.Read More

It’s just another day for you at work; you handover one of the most important dossiers to your Team, signed and sealed, for execution and come back to your cabin, where a glass of cool water is kept next to one of those flamboyant paper-weights you gifted yourself recently. You sit on your comfortable high-back chair with a soft, heavily cushioned backrest, pushing it back, to relax after an eventful, busy first half. You pick up the glass of water, eyes transfixed on the gorgeous paperweight. Just as you start sipping water, you feel a light, but significant pain behind your eyes. Within moments, you also realize you have a light headache. The pain still isn’t excruciating, but it’s significant and unlike any pain you have felt so far.
By evening, the headache has gotten severe and the pain behind your eyes is a lot more pronounced. You can also sense you have high fever and the intermittent nausea you seemed to have developed doesn’t exactly let you enjoy your evening Tea. You drive back home, feeling fatigued. By late evening, your muscles and joints are already in writhing pain. Paracetamol made you feel better, but only for a couple of hours. You call up your physician. He asks you to eat an antibiotic, preferably Taxim-O, twice a day for three days and asks you to update. “If you don’t feel better, we will investigate” he assures. “Make sure you keep yourself hydrated. Drink lot of water and avoiding eating anything that’s oily and too spicy”, he reiterates. Three days later, it has only gotten worse. You have developed rashes as well, on your skin. The pain in muscles and joints has gotten worse, and the pain behind your eyes keeps visiting every couple of hours, growing in its intensity with each visit. You call up your physician. He asks you to get a few done, one of which is for Dengue. A few hours later, your physician calls you up, “You have dengue. Please get admitted”.Read More

4 Tips For Laboratory Efficiency
There are only 24 hours in a day and there’s only that much you can get out of your lab in a day. If scaling up your lab productivity is in on your mind to make the most out of your processes, then we have some suggestions to make that will help you achieve exactly the same.

Know Your Blood Group with Blood Type Chart.
The most important purpose to know your blood group is for the times of medical adversity. At the time of an emergency like lack of basic health components in the body like hemoglobin or at an event of an accident where in an external supply of the blood (transfusion) is essential, the knowledge of your blood group becomes vital. Hence it is essential and extremely crucial to get a blood test done.
What are Blood Group or Blood Types
A blood type (also called a blood group) is a classification of blood based on the presence and absence of antibodies and based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs). These antigens may be proteins, carbohydrates, glycoproteins, or glycolipids, depending on the blood group system. Some of these antigens are also present on the surface of other types of cells of various tissues. Several of these red blood cell surface antigens can stem from one allele (or an alternative version of a gene) and collectively form a blood group system.
ABO types -
ABO types were the first of the discoveries.
- Group A – Antigen A with antibody B
- Group B – Antigen B with antibody A
- Group AB – Antigen AB has no antibodies
- Group O – Antigen nil (group O) with antibody A and B.
Rh types -
There are 5 main Rhesus (Rh) antigens on red cells – C, c, D, E, e.
The most important of these is the Rh D group. The positive (+) or the negative (-) after the letter A, B, AB or O is given by the D antigen on the red cell. In general practice, Rh negative blood is given to Rh-negative patients, and Rh-positive blood or Rh-negative blood may be given to Rh positive patients.
The universal red cell donor has Type O negative blood type.
The universal plasma donor has Type AB blood type.
It is essential to know the blood matches as that decides the availability of blood and the readiness of transfusion from one body to the other.
- Group O can donate red cells to anybody. It’s the universal donor O
- Group A can donate red cells to A’s and B’s
- Group B can donate red blood cells to B’s and AB’s
- Group AB can give blood only to other AB’s but can receive from all others
Blood Type Determination
It is inherited. Like eye color, blood type is passed genetically from your parents. Whether your blood group is type A, B, AB or O is based on the blood types of your mother and father.
This chart shows the possible blood types you may inherit.

In today’s fast paced life, we find ourself busy for everything but our Health. We all have forgotten the age old saying of Health Wealth to the digital yet busy lifestyle.
We fail to spare some valuable time for our own selves. We do not have the time to review our health condition, eat a balanced and timely meal, move ourselves appropriately, take a good night’s sleep, and on and on. With this, the older communicable diseases like Malaria, Typhoid and Polio have become curable but lifestyle related diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases and cancer are getting prevalent.
