AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) occurs when your body's disease-fighting system (immune system) is badly damaged and no longer protects you from infections and other health problems. This condition is caused by HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection.
Although your immune system is weakened when you are living with AIDS, your healthcare provider will give you instructions about how to stay as healthy as possible.

The story of the Humble Marble
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the wrist, hand, and fingers. The carpal tunnel is a narrow, hollow space in the wrist. Tendons and one of the main nerves in the hand (median nerve) pass through the carpal tunnel. The median nerve supplies feeling to the thumb and the first three fingers. It also supplies the muscles at the base of the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the median nerve gets squeezed in the area where it passes through the carpal tunnel.
In some cases, it may not be possible to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. However, you can take steps to relieve pressure on your wrist and reduce your risk of developing this condition.
Down syndrome is a genetic disorder that is caused by the presence of an extra chromosome at birth. A chromosome is the cell structure that contains genetic information. A person with Down syndrome is born with part or all of an additional copy of chromosome number 21. Down syndrome may cause certain physical characteristics, affect physical and mental development, and cause other health problems. However, your child can still lead a very active, successful, and happy life.
Medical appointments are some of the more essential reasons that will see us leaving the house amidst the COVID-19 measures. During these appointments, taking extra precautions will go a long way in keeping our loved ones safe.
An insider view on an age-old problem!
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a respiratory pathogen called the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. People who are infected with COVID-19 tend to experience mild to moderate respiratory disease and will recover without any special treatment being required. Some individuals who are infected will be asymptomatic, but majority of them would experience mild Covid-19 symptoms and recover on their own. Elderly people, especially those with underlying medical problems such as cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, diabetes, and cancer are more likely to develop severe complications.
