We all know how deadly is the virus and how adversely it has affected people worldwide. With rising cases globally, the stress over the medication can lead to several other problems too. In order to get hold of the right way to tackle the virus, there have been certain guidelines proposed by WHO that needs to be followed in order cure or prevent the disease. Because the virus attacks our respiratory system, we need oppose it with a good immune system. For that Vitamin C can prove to be very important in fighting the virus and helps in diffusing its effects on our respiratory system.

Vitamin C, a water soluble powerful anti-oxidant can reduce or neutralize the damage caused to the lungs. It also helps in reviving from the damage caused by the virus. It is essential to maintain a balance between oxidants and anti-oxidants inside our body to stop any possible damage to the respiratory system. It is natural to experience a drop in the quantity of anti-oxidants, that’s when adequate amount of Vitamin C consumption can balance it out by increasing the levels of anti-oxidants in our body.

Functional role of Vitamin C in boosting Immunity

In simple terms, a person with good immune system can easily overcome this virus without even experiencing the symptoms. Vitamin C levels in white blood cells (immune cells) are ten times more than in plasma, which indicates functional role of the Vitamin C in these immune cells. Vitamin C has been shown to affect the functions of phagocytes, replication of viruses, creation of interferon and maturation of T-lymphocytes. Vitamin C also protects these immune cells from oxidative harm when they try to clear out bacteria, and viruses from our body. Hundreds of clinical studies have shown that Vitamin C has a positive effect on many infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.

How much dosage of Vitamin C is safe for intake?

Vitamin C dosage count of 4-6g is absolutely fine for intake and doesn’t cause any side effects. The doses are specially targeted towards elderly people to strengthen their immunity and increase their capability to revive from the impact of the virus. In this pandemic, several studies conducted in India and South Korea has indicated that people even after getting affected by the virus has cured without showing any symptoms. This is itself the biggest example of keeping a good immune levels in the body.

Food that are rich in Vitamin C

There are certain foods that are rich in Vitamin C, you can consume them on regular basis by including them in your diet. Citrus fruits and tomatoes are very important and are rich in Vitamin C. Besides, potatoes are also among the major contributors of Vitamin C. Other good sources of Vitamin C are broccoli, strawberries, kiwifruit, Brussels sprouts, pineapple, mango and cantaloupe.

So, let us not wait till the situation get worse. It’s better we start taking Vitamin C in our diet from now. It is about strengthening your immunity and avoiding a mild flu from becoming a life threatening condition in this pandemic. Basically the motive is to reinforce the immunity of the body to combat the virus than to find remedies for the virus. After all, prevention is better than cure. This search for remedy will take months and we cannot wait until the time comes. The finest option is to strengthen the immune system of the body to charge off the infection.

A test to measure the level of vitamin ‘C’ in your blood which helps the body form and maintain connectivity tissue, including bones, blood vessels and the skin.

A COVID-19 antibody test, also popularly known as a serology test, is a blood test that can identify if a person has antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, it’s mainly the virus that roots COVID-19. COVID-19 antibody tests can help recognize people that may are infested with the SARS-CoV-2 virus or have recuperated from the COVID-19 infection. Currently, there are two different types of diagnostic tests are conducted for COVID-19:

• Molecular (RT-PCR) tests, which discover the virus' genetic material

• Antigen tests that identify specific proteins on the surface of the virus

Molecular and antigen tests can detect if you have a vigorous corona virus infection. If you test positive on both type of test, you should follow the CDC's guidelines to defend yourself and others. Molecular and antigen tests are executed using samples taken mostly from the nose and throat expending a long swab, or other respiratory specimens.

What are antibodies?

Antibodies are basically proteins made by the immune system to combat infections like viruses and may help to charge off future occurrences by those similar infections. Antibodies can take days or weeks to advance in the body due to the following exposure it gets to a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection and it is unidentified how long they stay in the blood.

An antibody test does not identify the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to diagnose COVID-19. These tests can reoccur a negative test result even in infested patients (for example, if antibodies have not yet settled in response to the virus) or may spawn due to false positive results (for example, if antibodies to another corona virus type are detected), so they should not be used to gauge if you are currently infected or transmissible (ability to infect other people).

Understanding Antibodies Test Result

If you have a positive test result on a SARS-CoV-2 antibody test, then there is a possibility that you have recently or previously had COVID-19. There is also a chance that the positive result may be wrong, known as a false positive. There are reasons due to which false positive tests may occur:

• Because antibody tests may identify corona viruses other than SARS-CoV-2, such as those that cause the common cold.

• When testing is done in a population deprived of many cases of COVID-19 infections. These types of tests work fine within populations with higher rates of infection.

What do Sensitivity and Specificity have to do with Antibody test?

Sensitivity is the capability of the test to recognize people with antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. This is recognized as the true positive rate. A highly sensitive test will ascertain most people who truly have antibodies with few people with antibodies being neglected by the test (false negatives).

Specificity is the ability of the test to appropriately identify people without antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. This is known as the true negative rate. A highly specific test will recognize people who truly do not have antibodies with few people without antibodies being acknowledged as having antibodies by the test (false positives).

Outro

Antibody and diagnostic tests are offered by prescription from a health care provider and may be accessible at local health care facilities and testing centers. Contact your health care provider or your local doctor or state health department for more related information.

The requirements for returning to work may be unwavering by your employer or your state and local governments. Ask your employer about your workplace's criteria for returning to work for someone who has tested positive and any actions your employer will be taking to preclude or condense the spread of COVID-19 among employees and customers.

What is vitamin D?

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for healthy bones. Vitamin D is also known as sunshine because it produced in our body as a result of exposure to sunlight. It is one of the essential vitamins that our body requires since it aids in calcium absorption, regulates insulin levels, and regulates kidney function and other functions. Vitamin D plays an important role in the functioning of bones and the functioning of the immune system, nerves, and muscles. The Vitamin D test is responsible to test vitamin D levels in our blood.

 

Types of vitamin D:

Vitamin D2 and D3 are the two major types of vitamin D.

 

Why vitamin D is so important?

  • Prevent bone fractures
  • Prevent falls in older people and osteoporosis
  • Reduce the risk of cancer
  • Reduce the risk of diabetes
  • Protect against heart disease
  • Improve your lung function

 

How do you know if your vitamin d level is sufficient?

If you have a low level of vitamin d your body might give some signs such as pain in joints and limbs, fatigue, etc.  A vitamin d test is the best way to know if you have sufficient levels of vitamin d in your blood.

 

When should you get vitamin D?

 You need to do a vitamin D test if you come into any one of the following categories:

  1. You suffer from bone problems
  2. You are a senior citizen
  3. Your exposure to sunlight is limited
  4. If you are taking certain medicines
  5. You have dark skin
  6. Your diet lacks a source of vitamin D

 

How much vitamin D you need?

Most experts say that people should take much more of this vitamin every day than is now recommended. They believe that if you don’t get so much exposure to sunlight, all children and adults need about 800 to 1000 units of vitamin D every day. People who are older than 65 probably need even more than 1000 units.

 

What are the best sources of vitamin D?

The best source of vitamin D is sunlight. Only a few foods supply vitamin D in significant amounts. The problem is that too much exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer, but too little sun exposure is the reason that many people today don’t get enough vitamin D. If your skin is exposed to summer sunlight for 10 to 15 minutes at least twice a day. And in the winter, the sun isn’t strong enough to give us sufficient amounts of vitamin D.

 

What is a vitamin D test?

Vitamin D test is done to check the level of 25 hydroxyvitamin D in our blood. Monitor and screen bone disorders etc.

Vitamin D deficiency can occur if you have a dark complexion since melanin reduces your skin's ability to produce the vitamin due to exposure to sunlight. There is a high risk of vitamin D deficiency in order adults with a dark complexion.

 

The procedure of vitamin D test?

You need to fast for 4 to 8 hrs before the vitamin d test. The procedure takes around 5 minutes. Your blood sample will be collected by injecting a small needle. The blood will be collected into a test tube. There is no special preparation is required for the test. There is no risk associated with a vitamin D test. So, it’s totally safe and secure.

 

What causes a spike in covid-19 cases?

Human behaviour is a major factor. The government as well as individual people differ in their response to the pandemic. Some of them follow covid-19 precautions such as social distancing, mask-wearing etc. Others do not follow the instructions. 

In some states, cities public places are closed or they practising the limitation of the crowd. That how many people can go outside at a time? Others are operating normally. Some government mandating mask-wearing and social distancing in public places. Where other governments, communities saying ~ IT’S A METTER OF PERSONAL CHOICE.

So, the difference between those precautions and cases of COVID_19 is clear. In areas where peoples are taking precautions like wearing a mask, maintaining social distancing, etc. cases are on the rise.

Also, where people are careless, not taking any precautions – cases continue to occur.

 

Coronavirus second wave…

As the new strain of coronavirus continues to spread around the world, the vaccine is the best way to stop it.

 

How to protect yourself and others?

Many important ways to slow the spread~

What’s the difference between a Coronavirus test and an antibody test?

A covid-19 test, sometimes called a diagnostic test, test for a sign of the active virus. COVID-19 test is simpler & faster than an antibody test. But it tells you only if you have the virus in your body at that moment when you’re tested.

Where an antibody test shows that you had the virus at some points in the past.

 

Why antibody testing?

It’s necessary to check if you had a virus in the past. Sometimes people don’t react to the virus so Experts hope antibody tests can give health officially a better idea of how common the virus is.

 

 

 

 

All you need to know about the Blood Test..

OVERVIEW:

Blood tests are a standard part of routine and preventive healthcare. Regular blood testing is one of the most important ways to keep track of your overall physical well-being. A doctor will often order a blood test before a physical examination. Also, order blood tests to evaluate specific conditions.

 

How often should I get a routine blood test?

According to doctors' recommendation, you should get a routine blood test at least once a year.  But there are several major reasons you may want to get blood tests more often than:

  • You’re experiencing unusual, persistent symptoms.
  • You just want to optimize your health
  • You want to reduce your risk or disease or complications

 

What are some routine tests and others I should ask about?

This article looks at some of the most common types of blood tests and what each test checks for.

Types of the blood test:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Blood enzyme tests
  • Blood clotting tests
  • Lipoprotein panel
  • Basic metabolic panel
  • Thyroid test etc.

 

1. Complete blood count test (CBC Test):

CBC is an easy and very common blood test that screens for certain disorders that can affect your health. It is a collection of tests related to the cells in your blood. It usually includes the following results:

  • White blood cell count (WBC)- the number of white blood cells per microliter of blood
  • Red blood cell count (RBC)- the number of red blood cells per microliter of blood
  • Hemoglobin (HgB)- how many grams of oxygen-carrying protein per decilitre of blood
  • Haematocrit (Hct)- the fraction of blood that is made up of red blood cells
  • Mean corpuscular volume (MCV)- the average size of red blood cells

A CBC test helps a doctor to identify blood disorders or diseases, such as anemia, clotting, inflammation, infection, or immune system disorders.

 

2. Blood enzyme tests-

These tests measure the levels of specific enzymes in the body. It identifies specific health problems including a heart attack.

 

3. Blood clotting tests-

Doctors may order this test if they have doubted the person may have a blood clotting disorder.

 

4. Lipoprotein panel-

This measures the different types of cholesterol and related fat in the bloodstream. The panel usually includes:

  1. Total cholesterol
  2. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol
  3. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol

 

5. Basic metabolic panel-

A basic metabolic panel is a blood test that measures your sugar level, electrolyte, fluid balance and kidney function.

 

6. Thyroid test-

This test is done for the presence of thyroid hormone, such as thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), in the blood. Other tests like T3 and T4. A Doctor would prescribe these tests to determine if a person has a medical condition affecting their thyroids, such as hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism.

 

Why do some blood tests require fasting?

What a person eats affects the level of specific components in their blood. For instance, your blood sugar level will rise temporarily after eating.

So, in the case of a blood sugar test, a person must not eat for several hours before the test. Some other tests also require fasting, such as a fasting lipid panel. It would be good if you ask your doctor whether they need to fast before the test.

 

Who should get a routine blood test?
