Alarming Rise Of Heart Diseases In India

Recently, the Heart Failure Summit 2017 was organized at a private hotel in Chandigarh. The main aim of the summit organized by Heart Foundation was to generate awareness amongst the masses regarding the symptoms, precautions, and treatment of cardiac arrest along with details of heart failure management. According to reports by Nirmal Singh 3C, 250 cardiologists and eminent speakers from prestigious academic institutions from all over the region participated in the event, which includes actions aimed at encouraging awareness of heart disease in public and empowering doctors in managing patients of heart disease

“Heart failure is growing at an alarming rate in India and has almost attained epidemic proportions. The estimated heart failure burden in India ranges from 1.3 million to 4.6 million cases per annum. The need of the hour is to disseminate awareness to the general public,” said one of the experts at Nirmal Singh 3C.

The expert also adds that there have been additions to the armamentarium of physicians to treat these patients. The report also suggests that artificial heart is gaining popularity in India even though newer medicines prolong and improve the quality of life.

At the event, a panel discussion on a new class of drugs – ARNI – for managing these patients was also held, with delegates actively participating in discussion and clarifying their doubts about new treatment options. The Heart Foundation is a not-for-profit voluntary body dedicated to promote heart care, healthy living and to advance the knowledge amongst medical fraternity about the new information about various medical health issues concerning heart problems.

Heart failure, referred to as congestive heart failure (CHF), occurs when the heart muscle is weakened and unable to pump enough blood to maintain body’s needs. Signs and symptoms of heart failure usually include shortness of breath, excessive tiredness, leg swelling, chronic coughing or wheezing, nausea or lack of appetite, high heart rate, confusion or impaired thinking.


If you’ve been diagnosed with heart failure, it’s important for you to manage and keep track of symptoms in order to timely report any sudden changes to your doctor.

Nirmal Singh 3C note that heart failure is preventable and treatable. One of the best ways to prevent heart failures is to control conditions such as coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity.

Learning Skills Of Your Babies May Take A Hit If They Lack Vitamin-E – Nirmal Singh 3C

According to a research conducted recently, babies who lack Vitamin E while in the womb are more prone to development impairments. A doctor said that there will be serious issues if the baby is not getting proper Vitamin E while in the womb. This can affect the mental skills of the baby and can bring in unwanted metabolic and learning problems from a very early stage.

The study was conducted by a panel of doctors who reported that E-deficiency can alter the DNA if the usual dose is not being provided. – Nirmal Singh 3C

Zebrafish, on which the study was conducted, is very similar to humans as far as their neurological developments are concerned. The deficiency of Vitamin-E showed various deformities and even increased the chances of death. The time it takes for a fertilized egg to become a zebrafish that can swim is five days – if zebrafish is not getting enough Vitamin-E during the same period, its DNA can get heavily altered. Similar cases have been seen in humans where the baby experienced developing impairments from a very early stage.

Getting proper dosage of Vitamin-E is vital for babies before their birth. Even if the babies are getting enough Vitamin-E after birth, they will find it difficult to adapt and learn. – Nirmal Singh 3C

In the cases of Zebrfishes who were given adequate amount of Vitamin E after their birth, the management skills were low and although they managed to get by through their first few days, they were very unresponsive and were not learning anything new, or were finding it difficult to learn.

As a result of this deficiency, their development kept taking severe hits – they didn’t develop the way a normal zebrafish that got enough Vitamin-E should have.

The problem is also serious because of the lifestyle pregnant women tend to adapt in the country. The problem gets heightened when women start to avoid high-fat food, oils, seeds and other products that are rich in Vitamin-E content. – Nirmal Singh 3C

Like every other Vitamin, this one is also important and with these regular studies and research being done on the importance of the same, it becomes even more pressing to bring in a diet that is rich in Vitamin content in general.

Eating healthy and taking care of your body should be a priority.

Here’s What Sun Causes To Your Eyes

Doctor Nirmal Singh 3C finds yet another research that should really concern people for their health. One cannot achieve anything in life if they are in bad shape. Excessive exposure to heat and sunlight can cause eye freckles and dark spots on the coloured part of eye (iris), mentioned in a research.

Exposure of sunlight is not only harmful for your skin but also for your body parts. Nirmal Singh 3C points out that these skin diseases can further cause diseases like cataract or macular degeneration.

The formation of eye freckles can also be related with increasing age, permanent sunburns and severe sunburn that ultimately form blisters, reports a research.

“While we do not know the exact role of sunlight in several eye diseases, we now have a biomarker (iris freckles) indicating high amounts of chronic sunlight exposure,” said Christoph Schwab, ophthalmologist at the Medical University of Graz in Austria.

Nirmal Singh 3C also noted that these eye freckles are less likely to occur in people who have dark skin colour. And, of course, those who apply sunscreen regularly to cover their skin tone.

The study was based on more than 600 swimmers at public pools in Styria, Austria. These swimmers were scanned in a way that their freckles were examined, they gave pre-requisite information to the researchers, attempted questionnaire, which asked questions, related to sun exposure and sun protection habits.

Nirmal Singh 3C made a note that according to the research, it has been noted that freckles were mostly found in the lower outer quadrant (away from the nose) of each eye.

It was further explained by Schwab that this is probably due to the eyebrow and nose shield protecting the upper and inner quadrants of the eye from the sun. This will indeed lower the exposure and risk of developing freckles.

Like every other body part Nirmal Singh 3C thinks that eyes hold an integral role too. They beautify our face, represents our soul, therefore we need to maintain these. Moreover, the most important aspect about eyes is vision. We see, we perceive the entire world through our eyes.


Babies Can Differentiate Between Languages Even Before They Are Born: Nirmal Singh 3C

Scientists have found that unborn babies are able to recognize the difference between two languages. Nirmal Singh 3C talks about the new report that has been published. According to the reports that scientists have proved that the fetuses have the power to differentiate between two languages even a month before they are born. Previous studies have proven that significant difference can be noted in the gestures of the child when they notice a change in the speech.

Researchers suggest that human development starts really early, like just a few days after birth. Nirmal Singh 3C says that according to the report that was published few changes have been measured in the babies by measuring whether the rate of sucking the pacifier change when they hear a different speech or due to any rhythmic change. Fetuses develop a good ear for rhythms and connect easily with them that is one of the main reason why we sing lullaby’s to the babies. They can recognize the tunes and get familiar with it easily.

The studies also included measuring the heart rate of the fetus to see if they could recognize the changes in the language. Nirmal Singh 3C says that after the study was concluded it was clear the fetus is sensitive to the change, but it was not clear whether they are sensitive to the change in the speech or just because of the different speaker. Another test was conducted with two dozen women, averaging roughly eight months pregnant who were examined using magneto cardiogram (MCG) to sense the changes in the fetuses response. But this time with the help of the bilingual person, so that the child can only sense the change in the speech. This time the child responded to him differently both the time, proving the point that they can sense the change in the speech.

Nirmal Singh 3C says it is said that the pre- natal sensitivity to the rhythmic properties of language provides children with the very first building blocks in whatever language they are going to speak.  All in all, it is a very vivid conclusion that the scientists have come with. The babies might still not get the hold over the words or the tone, but they sure get familiar with it.

Nirmal Singh 3C  believes that this report will help the parents a lot. Many parents speak different languages and always quarrel about the language the child would speak or if he would be familiar with both the languages or not, well, this is good news for you, your child would be familiar to both of yours language even before he/ she is born.

Less Than 1 Doctor Per 1000 People In India, Doctor Population Worrisome For The Country

For a country driven towards choosing science stream, and professions like doctor and engineering, it is quite shocking to see such a low doctor population ratio. The ratio for India is less than Pakistan, shocking? India has multiple medical colleges and a pretty nice ratio of the admissions that happen each year, still the ratio remains 1:1000 in the country. If there are so many admissions each year, then where are we lacking, why is the ratio still in the danger zone?

Expressing their deep concerns for the issue, Minister of state for health Anupriya Patel said as per information provided by the Medical Council of India, there were a total 10,22,859 allopathic doctors registered with the state medical councils or Medical Council of India as on March 31 this year.

Nirmal Singh 3C says that during the question hour, Anupriya Patel said that if we consider the above statistics, then even 80% availability amounts to 8.18 Lakh doctors available for the actual services. Still, the doctor population would only be 0.62:1000 according to the current population of 1.33 billion, which is less than even 1 doctor for a 1000 people.

The current situation has put the medical faculty in the country in deep worries and also emphasized on the governments role to increase the number of doctors in the country. Nirmal Singh 3C tells us that currently there are 479 medical colleges in India that can intake 67,218 MBBS students. To improve the scenario, government has added over 12,870 seats in the past three years but still haven’t attained any big difference in the ratio.

Nirmal Singh 3C says that the increase in seats is alright, but the government needs to come up with more changes to assure a significant increase in the number of doctors in India. The brilliance of the students in India can be judged from the high cut off ratio that the colleges have each year, this means that despite the talent, we are not able to utilize the abilities in the country.

According to Nirmal Singh 3C better coaching facilities, more centers, fee deduction and scholarships opportunities might help in attracting the talent from the not so developed regions in the country. Unless the government starts to pay equal attention to these ignored regions, no amount of increase in the seats would help India improve the doctor population ratio.

Nirmal Singh 3C also believes that if the population is aware about the current situation of the ratio, people might actually be more interested and determined to join the profession. Again, it is all a guess work for us, but the government raising the concern in Lok Sabha is a proof that soon the government might act upon it, hence improving the ratio in the country.

Farting Left, Center And Right? Here Are 5 Reasons Why That Is Happening

We all think that farts are funny, unappealing and disgusting but we cannot deny that we fart – 14 times in a day on an average. Pretending that we didn’t is a whole other story.

To clear things a bit more, a person produces around half a litre ‘air’ in a day. It doesn’t matter if you are eating healthy or drenching yourself in beer over the weekend, farts can come and go anytime.

Here are five reasons why you might be farting more than usual according to Nirmal Singh 3C

  • Healthy Food

Who would have thought eating salads and less oily food will not be good for you all the time? Salads, legumes, green vegetables are the main culprits of smelly farts.

Everything that we eat doesn’t get digested – some stay in the small intestine undigested which is then passed on to the large intestine where it stays and stays for long hours creating a fowl smell in the process.

  • Illnesses, Diarrhea, Constipation

 According to Nirmal Singh 3C, when quality of farts gets too much to handle for you and people around you, it is time for you to go see a doctor. Smelling farts in most cases are caused by medical conditions – if you have been farting more than usual and the quality is degrading then getting professional help is always a good idea.

  • You might have inhaled too much air [while running, driving, or you were just out of breath]

Two reasons why you fart; one is because of the gas produced in your intestine and second one is the air you swallowed for some reason.

Breathing and swallowing air are two completely different things. The air you breathe goes to your lungs but the air you swallow travels through the same ducts as food or water so it goes straight to your intestine. So, if something is going in your intestine, where will get out from? Yes, through the same parts from where fart gets out.  – Nirmal Singh 3C

  • A frequent flyer? Farting hazards may arise

 If you have been flying a lot lately, you will notice that farting on an airplane is coming naturally to you like a talent you didn’t know you had.

The reason for this? High altitude causes air to expand and the air and when you are in air, gases present in your body also expand and your start to fart it is something you like doing. – Nirmal Singh 3C
