ADHD vs Autism
*********************

Although they may appear two sides of the same coin, share many of the same symptoms, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism are very different disorders.ADHD is a neurobehavioral disorder that makes it difficult for sufferers to focus, stay organized, and listen to direction. It’s estimated that ADHD affects 3 to 5 percent of kids in the United States. In contrast, autism is a developmental disorder that affects the way a person communicates and interacts with others. Estimates say three to six in every 1,000 kids in the United States has autism.

ADHD is a common childhood behavioral disorder. Three types of ADHD exist:

Predominately hyperactive-impulsive-Fidgeting, Squirming, blurting out, running or climbing repeatedly, can’t play quietly, interrupting, talking too much.

Predominately inattentive - Not paying attention to detail, Making careless mistakes, Failing to pay attention and keep on task, Not listening etc

Combined hyperactive-impulsive and inattentive- People with it have symptoms of both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive types.

According to data from the National Institute of Mental Health, 9 percent of American children between the ages of 13 and 18 have ADHD. The average onset age is 7 years old. Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with it than girls.

ADHD behavior checklist

a) Talking nonstop
b) Not showing concern for other people’s emotions or feelings
c) Trouble sitting still
d) Easily distracted
e) Frequently switching attention from one thing or task to another
f) Difficulty focusing
g) Difficulty concentrating and narrowing attention to one task
h) Growing bored quickly with tasks
i) Dashing around a room, jumping from object to object
j) Blurting out
k) Interrupting conversations or activities

Autism behavior checklist

a) Unresponsive to common stimuli
b) Impaired social interaction
c) Intense focus and concentration in a singular item
d) Withdrawn behaviors
e) Avoiding eye contact
f) An inability to react to others’ emotions or feelings
g) Repetitive movement, such as rocking or twisting
h) Delayed developmental benchmarks

How can a health care provider tell the difference between autism and ADHD?

Both disorders may affect sufferers’ social interactions, their ability to follow directions, and to stay focused. But neither autism nor ADHD has one symptom that makes making a diagnosis easy. Both disorders display a combination of symptoms, and thus a professional evaluation is necessary to clarify whether someone suffers from autism or ADHD.

In order to assess a patient’s symptoms, a health-care professional will probably conduct a series of evaluations, tests, and interviews. Interviews usually involve the patient, and certainly take into account observations by his or her parents, caregivers and teachers. These interviews help the health-care professional to get a clear understanding of how symptoms are affecting the patient’s daily life.

Early detection of ADHD and autism will help a child receive the right diagnosis and treatment.

Similarities

Families often get confused whether their child suffers from ADHD or autism. It’s wiser to consult a health care provider in such cases.

• Inattention

Children who have ADHD and children with autism may have difficulties with paying attention.

• Hyperactivity

Some children with ADHD or autism may engage in hyperactive behavior. This means that the child may be fidgety, restless, constantly on the go, or talking excessively.

• Impulsivity

Children with ADHD or autism may act impulsively and without recognizing the consequences of their actions.

• Behavior Problems

Many children with an ADHD diagnosis may have behavioral challenges which set them apart from their peers. Likewise, many children with an autism spectrum disorder may have significant behavior problems which interfere with learning and making friends.


• Impaired Social Skills

The child with either ADHD or autism may have great difficulty in making friends or fitting in at school or with their peers.

Allergy Testing
***************

Who are at risk?

Allergies can develop at any age, possibly even in the womb. They commonly occur in children, but may give rise to symptoms for the first time in adulthood. Asthma may persist in adults while nasal allergies tend to decline in old age.
For some time, it has been known that allergic conditions tend to cluster in families. Your own risk of developing allergies is related to your parents' allergy history. If neither parent is allergic, the chance that you will have allergies is about 15%. If one parent is allergic, your risk increases to 30% and if both are allergic, your risk is greater than 60%.

Allergy season

The key to managing seasonal allergies is figuring out what you are allergic to. It could be trees, grass, ragweed pollen, or even outdoor mold in soil, vegetation and rotting wood.
Work with us to narrow down the specific allergens that seem to cause your allergy symptoms. Once you've discovered your triggers, you can figure out your own allergy season. Where you live plays a big role in when allergy season starts. In general, the farther south you go, the earlier pollination begins. But be careful, the start and end of allergy season can vary by a few weeks depending on the year.

Types of allergies

Food allergy

A food allergy, or hypersensitivity, is an abnormal response to a food that is triggered by the immune system. The immune system is not responsible for the symptoms of food intolerance, even though these symptoms can resemble those of a food allergy.
For example, being allergic to milk is different from not being able to digest it properly due to lactose intolerance.
It is extremely important for people who have true food allergies to identify them and prevent allergic reactions to food because these reactions can cause devastating illness and, in some cases, be fatal.

Pollen allergy

Pollen allergies—also known as “hay fever” or “allergic rhinitis”—affects between 10 and 30 percent of adults and up to 40 percent of children in the United States.
Hay fever is an immune reaction to pollen that typically manifests as cold-like symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and runny nose. Some people suffer from hay fever year-around, while for others, symptoms get worse at certain times of the year.

Milk Allergy

If you suffer from a milk allergy, strictly avoiding milk and food containing milk and milk products is the only way to prevent a reaction, which can include immediate wheezing, vomiting, and hives.

Dairy Products to stay away
Yogurt
Custard
Butter and butter fat
Cheese, including cottage cheese and cheese sauces
Cream, including sour cream
Milk, including buttermilk, powdered milk, and evaporated milk
Ice cream
Pudding

Egg Allergy

Egg allergies -- especially to egg whites -- are more common in children than in adults and reactions range from mild to severe.

Spring Allergies

Spring is the time of year that we normally think of when it comes to seasonal allergies. As the trees start to bloom and the pollen gets airborne, allergy sufferers begin their annual ritual of sniffling and sneezing.

Summer Allergies

Although spring most readily comes to mind when we think of allergies, many of the same allergic triggers that can make us miserable in the spring persist into summer.

Fall Allergies

The allergy triggers might be slightly different, but they can be just as misery-inducing as the flower pollen that fills the air in the spring and summer.

Mold Allergy

People with mold allergies, however, may have a reaction if exposed to too much of the fungus.

Skin allergy

Something touches your skin, and your immune system thinks it's under attack. It overreacts and sends out antibodies to help fight off the invader, called an allergen. The result is a red, itchy rash where the substance was on your skin.
We call this allergic contact dermatitis. People who have allergies react to things that wouldn't bother most others. The rash looks like irritant contact dermatitis, but it can happen with only a brief touch of a small amount.
Most people's skin will burn if there is enough exposure to ultraviolet radiation. However, some people burn particularly easily or develop exaggerated skin reactions to sunlight.

Latex allergy

Latex allergy usually develops after repeated exposure to latex products, including balloons or medical gloves. Symptoms may include hives, itching or a stuffy or runny nose. Some people may experience asthma symptoms, such as wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing.

There are other allergies too for more details talk to us by visiting our clinic.

Allergy tests

To know the problem accurately -- and determine the treatment – we will ask questions about your symptoms and habits. You’ll also need various tests.

Skin test

Skin testing is a safe and fairly easy way for us to try to figure out or confirm what's causing your symptoms. A skin prick test, also called a puncture or scratch test, checks for immediate allergic reactions to as many as 40 different substances at once. This test is usually done to identify allergies to pollen, mold, pet dander, dust mites and foods. In adults, the test is usually done on the forearm. Children may be tested on the upper back.
This type of testing uses needles (lancets) that barely penetrate the skin's surface. You won't bleed or feel more than mild, momentary discomfort.

Patch test

Patch testing is generally done to see whether a particular substance is causing allergic skin irritation (contact dermatitis). Patch tests can detect delayed allergic reactions, which can take several days to develop.
Patch tests don't use needles. Instead, allergens are applied to patches, which are then placed on your skin. During a patch test, your skin may be exposed to 20 to 30 extracts of substances that can cause contact dermatitis. These can include latex, medications, fragrances, preservatives, hair dyes, metals and resins.
You wear the patches on your arm or back for 48 hours. During this time, you should avoid bathing and activities that cause heavy sweating. The patches are removed when you return to our clinic. Irritated skin at the patch site may indicate an allergy.

Heart Disease
*****************
Heart disease is an umbrella term for any type of disorder that affects the heart. Heart disease means the same as cardiac disease but not cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease refers to disorders of the blood vessels and heart, while heart disease refers to just the heart.
According to WHO (World Health Organization) and the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.

Some examples of heart disease include:

• Coronary artery disease
• Heart attack.
• Abnormal heart rhythms or arrhythmias.
• Heart failure.
• Heart valve disease.
• Congenital heart disease.
• Heart muscle disease (Cardiomyopathy)
• Pericardial disease

Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease:
-----------------------------------------------
The most common symptom of coronary artery disease is angina, or chest pain. Angina can be described as a discomfort, heaviness, pressure, aching, burning, fullness, squeezing, or painful feeling in your chest. It can be mistaken for indigestion or heartburn. Angina may also be felt in the shoulders, arms, neck, throat, jaw, or back.
Shortness of breath, Palpitations, a faster heartbeat, weakness or dizziness, Nausea and sweating could be other marks.

Manifestation of a Heart Attack:
-------------------------------------
Discomfort, pressure, heaviness, or pain in the chest, arm, or below the breastbone
Uneasiness radiating to the back, jaw, throat, or arm, Fullness, indigestion, or choking feeling could be other evidences. During a heart attack, symptoms typically last 30 minutes or longer and are not relieved by rest or oral medications. Initial symptoms may start as a mild discomfort those progresses to significant pain. Some people have a heart attack without having any symptoms, which is known as a "silent" myocardial infarction (MI). It occurs more often in people with diabetes.

Mark of Arrhythmias:
-------------------------
Weakness or fatigue
Fainting
Palpitations
Pounding in your chest
Dizziness or feeling light-headed
Shortness of breath
Chest discomfort

Warning of Heart Failure:
--------------------------------
Shortness of breath noted during activity or at rest, especially when you lie down flat in bed. Cough that produces white sputum, rapid weight gain, swelling in ankles, legs, and abdomen, dizziness, fatigue and weakness, rapid or irregular heartbeats, nausea, palpitations, and chest pain are some other indications.

Symptoms of Heart Valve Disease:
-------------------------------------------
Shortness of breath, Palpitations, weakness or dizziness, discomfort in your chest; you may feel a pressure or weight in your chest with activity or when going out in cold air.

Congenital heart disease:

In adults
-----------
Shortness of breath
Limited ability to exercise
Symptoms of heart failure or valve disease

Congenital Heart Defects in Infants and Children
----------------------------------------------------------
Cyanosis
Fast breathing and poor feeding
Poor weight gain
Recurrent lung infections
Inability to exercise

Symptoms of Heart Muscle Disease:
--------------------------------------------
Many people with heart muscle disease or Cardiomyopathy have no symptoms or only minor symptoms, and live a normal life. Other people develop symptoms, which progress and worsen as heart function worsens.

Pericarditis:
---------------
Chest pain which is different from angina (chest pain caused by coronary artery disease); it may be sharp and located in the center of the chest. Low-grade fever, increased heart rate could be other expressions.

When to see a doctor:

Seek emergency medical care if you have these heart disease symptoms:
• Chest pain
• Shortness of breath
• Fainting
Heart disease is easier to treat when detected early, so talk to us about your concerns about your heart health. If you're concerned about developing heart disease, talk to us about steps you can take to reduce your heart disease risk. This is especially important if you have a family history of heart disease.

Risk fixin's:

Age
Sex
Family history
Smoking
Poor diet
High blood pressure
Diabetes
Obesity
Physical inactivity
Stress
