This is a video of a Soldier crying because he is scared of needles (the irony) the condition is called Trypa-what? Trypanophobia! If you've ever tried to search for "needle phobia" or "fear of shots," you've probably come across some very odd and confusing terms. But this condition is very real, and a whopping 20 percent of people have a fear of needles. There are a lot of risks associated with the fear of needles. It can prevent people from going to the doctor, getting routine blood tests, or following prescribed treatments. Modern medicine is making increased use of blood tests and injectable medications, and forgoing medical treatment because of a fear of needles puts people at a greater risk for illness and even death. For example, diabetics who skip glucose monitoring and insulin injections can put themselves in serious danger of complications.
HERE ARE THE SIX MEDICAL TERMS THAT ARE RELATED TO FEARING NEEDLES:
1. Aichmophobia: an intense or morbid fear of sharp or pointed objects
2. Algophobia: an intense or morbid fear of pain
3. Belonephobia: an abnormal fear of sharp pointed objects, especially needles
4. Enetophobia: a fear of pins
5. Trypanophobia: a fear of injections
6. Vaccinophobia: a fear of vaccines and vaccinations
OTHER IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT FEARING NEEDLES
* Traumatic experiences in childhood form the foundation of these fears—like seeing an older sibling cry when getting their shots. * Of those who have a fear of needles, at least 20 percent avoid medical treatment as a result. * The fear of needles is both a learned and an inherited condition. A fairly small number inherit a fear of needles, but most people acquire needle phobia around age four to six. #thedrugcode

Can RDTs bring Nigeria one step closer to eliminating malaria?Can RDTs bring Nigeria one step closer to eliminating malaria?


Nigeria’s national strategic plan for malaria control aims to reduce the malaria burden in the country to pre-elimination levels and to bring malaria related deaths to zero by 2020. No doubt this is an ambitious goal. The plan aims to achieve this through vector control (elimination of mosquitoes), malaria case management, prevention of malaria in pregnancy as well as environmental management. Resources have been committed by both the government and donors in the fight to eliminate the disease. However, most malaria interventions tend to focus on the public rather than the private sector, despite the significant proportion of patients that access services from the private sector.

WHY BREAST IS BEST
#WomensHealth

After a mother delivers her child & the placenta, there is a steep fall in her hormone levels. This inherently causes her body to increase the synthesis of the hormone prolactin (which is the ‘pro’ lactation hormone). This stimulates the alveolar epithelial cells of the breast, activating milk production! Periodic infant suckling leads to further release of prolactin & oxytocin, which stimulate myoepithelial cell contraction & milk ejection (formally known as the ‘let-down reflex’). Early breast milk (milk that is produced in the first postpartum week) is known as colostrum. Colostrum contains protein, fat, secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA), & minerals. The high IgA levels in colostrum are essentially immune cells that will provide passive immunity for the infant & protect the baby against enteric bacteria! After about 1 week postpartum, ‘mature milk’ with protein, fat, lactose, & water is produced. It is interesting to note that the contents of breast milk evolves & changes along with the baby! This is part of the reason why the CDC & the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend breastfeeding. Other potential benefits of breastfeeding include a lower incidence of allergies, upper respiratory infections & GI infections in the baby and maternal weight loss!

MOST RECENT

@Regrann from @thedrugcode - The Nigerian Senate releases list of 42 anti-malaria drugs banned in Europe are still sold and consumed across the country.
•(SLIDE TO SEE LIST OF DRUGS)

The probe followed the adoption of a motion by Senator Theodore Orji (PDP, Abia-Central).
Orji noted that recently the European Union banned the sale and consumption of 42 anti-malaria drugs in all countries within the European Union.
One of the banned drugs is Artesunate which is widely used in Nigerian households.
While stressing the need to prioritise investigation into the drugs as they were considered dangerous, the senator said: “The reason for the ban is that they are considered dangerous and leads to kidney failure and yet all these drugs are still stockpiled, sold and consumed in Nigeria which can be of great danger to the health of the people.

If you work in the community pharmacy in Nigeria, you must have heard someone complain about heel pain. #swipetoreadmore
Do you have pain in your heel or under your foot? When you wake up in the morning and take your first step, you feel limp due to pain? And after a few steps, does the pain seem to subside? That's definitely PLANTAR FASCIITIS if you didn't have any history of trauma (falls or accidents). You can either: Treat with cold compress as first aid with pain relievers but that's only for first aid. For complete and total relief from that pain, PHYSIOTHERAPY treatment should be sort after to address all the structures that have been involved in the injury.

‪“What would you say is the most dangerous animal on Earth? Sharks? Snakes? Humans?. If you’re judging by how many people are killed by an animal every year, then the answer isn’t any of the above. It’s mosquitoes. When it comes to killing humans, no other animal even comes close.” ~ Bill Gates. • •

Scotland has become the first country to take a major stand against what is known as “period poverty.” •



It is hoped that at least 1,000 women and girls will benefit from the effort, which is backed by funding from the government.
The sanitary products will first be offered to women’s health and housing charities, as well as four schools, with a view to extending the program should the pilot be deemed a success.
The plan follows recent news that British girls from low-income families are skipping school while they are on their period because they simply can’t afford sanitary products like tampons.

Freedom4Girls, a charity that traditionally sends sanitary provisions to schoolgirls in Africa, was contacted by a school in Leeds after it found some of its female students were missing school because they didn’t have access to period products.



Let’s hope this new initiative is a massive step in the right direction and a possibility for Nigeria in the near future.

Here's what happened when they got on the track! They knew it has been done before so there was a new belief about this barrier that was unreachable. Those 20,000 people got into the race believing in their heart knowing if someone has done it, then it's possible that they could do it! If someone can make their dreams become a reality , you can make your dreams become a reality
