press release, all things healthy in between, health tips, beauty and wellness, earth-friendly products

The love month doesn’t just pertain to having a relationship with someone, it’s not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. The love month should remind us about everything and everyone we love.

Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well.

Take time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it. Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair.

  • Observe good hygiene all the time ~ regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes
  • Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair ~ your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period.
  • Use towel to dry off your hair after shower ~ Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly.
  • Eat the proper nutrition ~ Our hair is also dependent on what we eat. Iron-rich food and protein strengthens your hair.
  • Have enough sleep ~ Lack of sleep can cause hair loss. Sleeping allows our hair to repair and regenerate. Changes in our sleeping patterns have shown to affect our body’s immune and hormone function, as well as our physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive to these changes within the body.
  • Pamper your hair ~ Give your hair a proper massage with the nutrients it needs.

The Medical City Offers Non-Invasive Test to Assess Liver Disease

hospital,The Medical City, press release, medical treatment, liver healthMore and more people are suffering from liver disease due to unhealthy diet and lifestyle.The liver is one of the largest and most vital organs and it performs many important jobs, including protein production, changing food into energy and removing toxic or poisonous substances from the blood. One cannot live without a functioning liver. Hence, it goes without saying that we all should take extra measures to ensure the health of our liver in order to live a long and healthy life. 

There are a number of diseases that can injure the liver and stop it from working correctly. One of these is hepatitis or the inflammation of the liver. With hepatitis, the liver stops working well. It can lead to scarring (cirrhosis) or cancer. Viruses cause most cases of hepatitis. Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of liver disease in the world.

A person with a liver problem may not be symptomatic in the early stages of the disease. Sometimes the disease may be identified during routine tests for other reasons. However, once liver problems reach a certain point, symptoms will start showing up. The most common symptoms of liver disease include weakness and fatigue, weight loss, nausea, vomiting and yellow discoloration of the skin or jaundice.

According to the doctors at The Medical City (TMC) Center for Liver Disease Management and Transplantation (CLDMT), if you wait for these warning signs or symptoms before caring for your liver, it might be too late. An effective way of keeping track of your health is through regular health screening.

There are also liver function tests which are blood tests that help determine the health of your liver by measuring the levels of proteins, liver enzymes, or bilirubin in your blood.

Your doctor may order a liver function test if you’re more likely to have liver damage or disease, like if you are a heavy drinker, or if you come from a family with a history of liver disease, if you are overweight and have diabetes or high blood pressure or if you are taking medicine that can harm your liver.

FibroScan Probe at The Medical City

In 2010, CLDMT introduced the first FibroScan probe in the Philippines. The FibroScan probe is a non-invasive, painless, and speedy alternative to biopsies used for assessing fibrosis, or the formation of scar tissue due to injury or long-term inflammation. The early detection of fibrosis is the key to preventing chronic liver disease, which is associated with conditions such as Hepatitis B, alcoholic liver disease, and fatty liver disease.  Continue reading
