SelfTest for Thyroid Problems

Hi I'm Dr. Allen Peters, Physician Healthy Aging Expert from NourishingWellness and I'm here today for About to share with you how to do a SelfTest for Thyroid Problems. This is a very simple exam which I do on every patient that I see, and you can do on yourself. You put your head back and feel for the thyroid cartilage. You feel both sides of the cartilage, and you might feel a small amount of soft tissue. You can exaggerate the tissue or exaggerate the thyroid cartilage by swallowing several times. If you feel more than a small amount.

Of tissueIf you feel a swelling or lumps or bumps this may be indicative on an enlarged thyroid or thyroid nodules which could be benign or malignant. If you do feel something large you should see your doctor. If he or she agrees the next step is usually getting an ultrasound. Now I want to mention that there are also some lumps behind the cartilage on the side of the neck, and these are just lymph nodes. I'm talking about the actual thyroid cartilage itself and the gland that is right there in.

That particular area. By the way, I want to emphasize that you could have an abnormal thyroid without being able to feel anything. It can be either hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. So if you are having symptoms of an increased metabolic rate like high blood pressure and palpitations and anxiety and nervousness to a great degree. Or if you are having slow down symptoms of slowdown metabolism like being tired and fatigued and depressed and low blood pressure and low pulse rate and constipated and hair falling out, then you may have thyroid disease even if you can't feel anything abnormal. So under those conditions.

MealTime Madness

Knowing food allergy symptoms and risks can help keep people safe when food allergy strikes. I'm Erin White and this is a dailyRx Feature.

Why Does My Baby Have a Rash on Her Face

Why does my baby have a rash on her face It's as if she has acne, but I'm afraid it is something dangerous. Babies can have acne. It is a mild infection as their bodies are exposed to various pathogens and start to fight it. What if they are worse than mild pimples If your baby is having trouble breathing or digestive problems after eating a new food, it may be food allergies. What if she's been sick If there is a fever with the rash, it could be anything from the chicken pox to Fifth's.

Disease. What is Fifth's disease It was one of the five common childhood diseases. It was considered the fifth one, because kids usually got it around age five, though they could get it when they were in preschool. But I'm dealing with a baby. The odds of it being Fifth's disease go up if he or she could have gotten it from an older sibling. But if there is a high fever and sore throat, it could be something serious like scarlet fever. I'm pretty sure she's vaccinated against that. Your baby is in the process of getting vaccinated against major diseases. She might not have.

Gotten the vaccine yet or doesn't have full immunity yet. She doesn't have a high fever. Could it be something more benign Do you have bed bugs Do you have pets, and the baby could have been exposed to fleas When we tell the kids good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite, I never meant literally. At least I know it isn't poison ivy like my preschooler had. If the older sibling has been in physical contact with the baby, or the baby laying down on clothes and blankets the older one was in, yes, the baby could have a reaction.

Nursing Home Residents Face Abuse and Infection With Feeding Tubes NY Attorney Brett Leitner

A nursing home resident's feeding tube dislodged. Hi. I'm Brett Leitner I'm an attorney with Parker Waichman. Let me tell you what happened. I was handling this case on behalf of a family who could no longer care for their mother at home. She was 89 years old, she had advanced dementia and she could no longer do her activities of daily living by herself. The family had to place her in the nursing home. Eventually, this woman needed a feeding tube because she could no longer eat by herself or feed herself. So the doctors inserted what.

They call a peg tube which is a tube that goes in through the belly area, through the abdominal wall, and into her stomach. Now it's very important to do certain things in order to maintain this tube to prevent risks such as infection. Number one is you must clean the area on the outside of the belly after every use in order to prevent infection on the outside of the body. You must also check what we call the patency or check the placements of the feeding tube on the inside of the stomach to make sure that.

That feeding tube has not dislodged into the abdominal wall. Because if it does and the feeding contents dislodge or go into the abdominal wall that can cause a massive infection. What happened in my case The feeding tube dislodged. It was our allegation that the nursing home caretakers did not check for the placement of the tube and my client sustained a massive infection what we can necrotizing fasciitis of the abdominal wall, which is also called flesheating bacteria within two weeks, my client was dead. We were able to secure.

How Do I Know If Other Children in My Childs Class Have Been Immunized

Gtgt Hi, my name's Paul Offit. I'm talking to you today from the Vaccine Education Center here at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Recently there've been more outbreaks of vaccinepreventable diseases. In 2012, we had an outbreak of whopping cough that involved more than 40,000 children in the United States, and caused a number of them to be hospitalized, and some even to be killed by the bacteria. This year, 2015, we have a measles outbreak that looks like it's on pace to be twice that of the outbreak last year. And last year's outbreak of measles was the biggest we've.

Had in more than 20 years. Mumps now has made somewhat of a comeback in certain communities. So I think parents are starting to worry a little more that children who are not necessarily their children are catching and transmitting these potentially fatal infections. And for that reason, they've become interested in knowing whether when they send their child to a daycare center, or when they send their child to an elementary school, whether other children in that school are protected, are vaccinated. It's a reasonable question, especially for parents whose children can't be vaccinated. I mean, some children are receiving.

Chemotherapy for their cancers, or maintenance chemotherapy for their cancers. Some children are receiving, say steroids for their asthma, which makes it difficult for them to be effectively immunized. So they want to make sure that when they bring their child into a classroom, that at least their children are being protected in the herd. That they're able to know that those people around them are vaccinated and therefore making it much more difficult for the viruses or bacteria to get through all those other children, and then to their child.

The answer to the question, How can you know what the percentage of children in your class is immunized is generally you don't know. I mean, it's really very few elementary schools or daycare centers that publish their rates of immunization. But I think that would be a great idea, right I think it would be a great way of saying, Look we care about protecting children in this environment. And so we publish these rates. Certainly parents have the right to ask the question about how children are picked up at school, what are.
