Asthma

E-cigarette Users Have Higher Risk to Develop Gum Disease

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways, i.e. the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways are inflamed (swollen). The inflammation makes the airways very sensitive, and they tend to react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When the airways react, they get narrower, even clogged, and less air flows through to your lung tissue. This causes symptoms like wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), coughing, chest tightness, and trouble breathing, especially at night and in the early morning. Read more

Hyperactive Gag Reflex

Cataract Surgery Associated with Lower Risk of Dementia

Hyperactive gag reflex is the body’s response to the stimulation of soft palate or posterior pharynx. Every one has a gag, but it becomes a problem when an individual finds it difficult to eat certain foods or perform certain activity. It is a very common feeding disorder among children. If your baby throws up and chokes herself every time you try to feed her with certain foods, it could be due to hyperactive gag reflex. Children with this disorder simply refuse to take solid foods or foods with a particular texture. This makes it impossible to feed them. Read more


Tortuous aorta

Scientists Identified 27 Proteins That May Predict Heart Disease Risk

A tortuous aorta is a twisting or distortion of the aorta that brings on the narrowing or constriction of that vessel, which can cause blood flow to be blocked. This condition, although not immediately life-threatening, can lead to high blood pressure, aortic insufficiency, or premature atherosclerosis. A tortuous aorta is common in the elderly, but can also happen to younger people who experience. Read more
