Pioneer HomeCare Updates Health Talk Topic : Thyroid Disorder The thyroid is a small gland located in front of the neck, below the Adam’s apple in the neck. The thyroid is responsible for the hormones that affects your body’s metabolism and energy level. The two most common thyroid disorders are hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is also referred to as having an overactive thyroid. It is a condition in which the body’s thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone over a short or long period of time. The treatment is usually dependent on the severity of the condition. It is usually treated by taking anti-thyroid medications or in extreme cases, surgery to remove the thyroid. Hypothyroidism is the opposite of hyperthyroidism as it is the condition where the the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Also known as having an under active thyroid. Treatment also varies but it is usually through taking thyroid replacement therapy. To know more about our company, visit us at : www.pioneerhomecare.in

Pioneer HomeCare Updates Health Talk Topic : Breast Exam and Pap Smear for Cancer Screening in Women A breast and pap smear exam is typically included in a Well Woman Exam. These tests are done for the early detection of breast and cervical cancer. The tests are administered by a licensed professional provider. Breast exams for women should be done at least every 3 years starting at age 20 and every year starting at age 40. It is recommended that you have more frequent breast exams if your family has a history of breast cancer. This exam is best performed after your monthly menstrual cycle as your breasts will not be tender or swollen. Your health care provider will examine your breasts in order to detect lumps or other changes. Breast exams should also be performed along with mammography because these are methods that are needed for a complete breast cancer screening. A pap smear is a test for screening cervical cancer. It should be done first by age 21 or within 3 years after having first vaginal intercourse. Regular testing should be done because the examination will help identify if you are at high risk for having cervical cancer. Talk to your doctor about how often you should get a pap smear because it varies in different women based on age, health and previous pap smear exams.

The Mystery of Sundowner's Syndrome : While the cause and cure are unknown, there is hope Just like everyone is different, there are also different forms of Alzheimers. One of the most difficult for loved ones to witness is Sundowner’s Syndrome. The name is a reflection of the confusion symptoms that appear or get worse during the transition between daylight and darkness, either early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Your loved one may exhibit one or more of these symptoms: rapid mood swings, anger, crying, agitation, pacing, fear, depression, stubbornness, restlessness, and rocking. The more severe symptoms of sundowners syndrome include: hallucinations, hiding things, paranoia, violence, and wandering. In the case of potential wandering, it may be a good idea to have your loved one wear an identification bracelet and install a top door lock to keep them safe during unsupervised sleeping hours. The reason for the timeliness of this disease is a medical mystery. Some doctors believe it could be triggered by a days worth of sensory stimulation or caused by a change of hormones the night brings. Some even think it could be caused by the darkness and the feeling of not being able to see as well after the sun goes down. While there is no cure for this, there are some ways it can be made more manageable: * Let light in Light isn’t only assumed to help reduce the symptoms, but it is also proven to prevent depression. Keep rooms well lit and at bedtime, plug in a night light. *Control noise As you start to wind down after a long day, keep the TV, radio and other noisy distractions at a low volume. You don’t want your loved one to end a day full of stimulation with more stimulation. *Establish a routine Routines may help your loved one feel safe and secure by reducing the level of anxiety he or she feels. Also, keep the busier activities to the morning/afternoon. *Watch the diet Focus on feeding your loved one “brain healthy” food, as suggested in the MIND diet. Have them avoid eating or drinking anything with too much caffeine or sugar – especially later in the day or evening. Many professional caregivers are experienced with the range of symptoms associated with Sundowner’s Syndrome and are trained to deal with them appropriately.
