Pain Relief Drugs Trigger Stroke Risk /pain-relief-drugs-trigger-stroke-risk.html /pain-relief-drugs-trigger-stroke-risk.html#comments Thu, 29 Sep 2011 02:03:00 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1032

This is a warning for those who regularly consume drugs painkillers. Recent research indicates experts in Canada, the consumption of painkillers on a daily basis and in high doses may increase the risk of heart attack and stroke by 40 percent.

According to the researchers, patients who regularly consume diclofenac (a pain killer and anti-inflammatory), heart problems, two-fifths higher. Meanwhile, the use of painkilling drugs such as ibuprofen have been associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke by 18 percent.

Diclofenac is one of the drugs of this type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with chemical formula 2 – (2,6-dichloranilino) phenylacetic acid. Type of NSAID medicines are often used for rheumatism, lumbago, gout, headache and flu treatment.

A small group of researchers from Hull York Medical School and the University of Toronto, Canada, has studied and compared the effects of the use of painkillers on the low and high doses (for a more severe complaints). Experimental drugs that are quite diverse, ranging from the type used in hospitals, prescription drugs, drug-common painkillers such as ibuprofen and naproxen found.

Results showed, using lower doses of diclofenac (to treat postoperative pain), berkaitkan with 22 percent higher risk of heart problems. Meanwhile, in larger doses, the ability of patients with heart disease or stroke increased by 98 percent.

On the other NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, the use of drugs in accordance with the recommendation no negative effect on patients. However, in people who consume large doses may increase cardiovascular risk by 78 percent.

“When choosing a type of the existing NSAIDs, patients and physicians should pay attention to the balance between benefit and harm that could be made in the use of these drugs,” said a principal investigator, Dr. Patricia McGettigan.

According to McGettigan, painkillers naproxen and ibuprofen are the safest for the heart, as long as it is used in low doses.

Meanwhile Doireann Maddock, a senior nurse at the British Heart Foundation heart said the use of painkillers is very risky, especially in people with cardiovascular disease.

“It has been known since the old and the new findings should not be forgotten. But scientists and drug experts need to dig deeper to reach conclusions about the effects of these drugs,” he said.

He added, “The use of any painkillers sure there are benefits and risks. If all these drugs and the repercussions, you must first consult with your doctor. Because of the benefits that can be much greater than the risk. ”

Recent research shows that diets rich in omega-3 was able to reduce the impact of stroke brain damage screwed up. The findings are based on the results of research on mice by Dr.Jasna Kriz and candidates Frédéric Laval University in Canada.

The results showed that the level of brain damage after strokereduced by 25 percent in mice receiving the supply of DHAomega-3 type every day. Details of this study can be found in the journal Stroke of the site.

The researchers found that the effect of the impact of stroke severity reduced in mice that were fed a diet rich in DHA for three months than in rats fed the control diet. In mice that received the DHA group, they experienced a decrease in the concentration of molecules that stimulate tissue inflammationand a large number of molecules that prevent the activation ofcell death.

“This is the first demonstration of a very convincing to the stronganti-inflammatory effects of DHA in the brain,” said Frederick.
He said this is the result of the protection of the substitution of the molecules in the nerve membrane, which partially replacearachidonic acid DHA, omega-6 fatty acids are known to haveinflammatory properties.

“Consumption of omega-3 to create an anti-inflammatorydamage and relieve the nerves surrounding the brain after a stroke. This prevents the acute inflammatory response which, if not controlled, hazardous to the brain tissue, “said Jasna.

Know More About Stroke /know-more-about-stroke.html /know-more-about-stroke.html#comments Sun, 24 Jul 2011 15:09:51 +0000 qhiqy /?p=592

Cerebrovascular accident (stroke = English) is a situation that suddenly interrupts the blood supply to part of the brain. In brain tissue, reduced blood flow can cause a series of biochemical reactions that can damage and even kill nerve cells in the brain.With death occurring in the brain tissue will be able to remove or destroy the function of which is controlled by the network. Besides causing death, a stroke could be saved if patients sometimes suffer from paralysis of limbs, loss of speech or partial loss of memory.

The first bout of motion sickness is only attacking the elderly.However, today there is a trend that threatens to hit a girl under age 45 or older. A stroke can affect anyone regardless of age, occupation or socioeconomic level.

In the United States and Europe Stroke is the No. 3 cause of death. While in the world, stroke is a disease of the number 3, which resulted in death after heart disease and cancer. Even according to the 2004 survey, the stroke is the number 1 killer in public hospitals across Indonesia.

There is no denying that the increase in stroke survivors in the world and Indonesia are identical to changes in lifestyle, diet rich in fat and cholesterol and subtracting physical activity (sports) a cause of stroke .

Types of stroke

1. Ischemic stroke

In ischemic stroke the blood flow to the brain stops caused by atherosclerosis, or accumulation of cholesterol in the walls of the blood or cause blood clots that block blood vessels pembulu in the brain. Most stroke patients and 83% suffered ischemic stroke type.

2. Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic stroke occurs in the rupture of blood vessels and inhibits the normal flow of blood and blood seeps into the region in the brain and cause damage. 70% of patients with hemorrhagic strokes occur in people with hypertension or high blood pressure.

Risk of stroke increases when you have the following:

Diabetes or diabetes mellitus
Hypertension or high blood pressure
High cholesterol
Family history
Undoubtedly, prevention is better than cure. Healthy lifestyle, healthy and balanced diet with sports activities, as well as maintaining an ideal body weight is a way to prevent this disease.
