Hemochromatosis: causes,pathophysiology,signs and symptoms,diagnosis and treatment

Show Description

Iron Supplements Rashes - Proper Nutrition | NutritionOfPower.com (5)

Hemochromatosis is the abnormal accumulation of iron in parenchymal organs, leading to organ toxicity..
It is the most common autosomal recessive genetic disorder and the most common cause of severe iron overload..
Signs and symptoms.
Patients with hereditary hemochromatosis may be asymptomatic (75%) or may present with general and organ-related signs and symptoms..
Early symptoms include severe fatigue (74%), impotence (45%), and arthralgia (44%).
CLASSIFICATION.
Hemochromatosis can be classified as.
Hereditary Hemochromatosis.
Hemochromatosis, HFE-related (type 1).
C282Y homozygosity.
C282Y/H63D compound heterozygosity.
Hemochromatosis, non-HFE-related.
Juvenile hemochromatosis (type 2A) (hemojuvelin mutations).
Juvenile hemochromatosis (type 2B) (hepcidin mutation).
Mutated transferrin receptor 2, TFR2 (type 3).
Mutated ferroportin 1 gene, SLC11A3 (type 4).
Acquired.
Iron Overload,Iron-loading anemias,Thalassemia major Sideroblastic anemia etc.
Pathophysiology.
Body-iron content is maintained at 3–4 g such that intestinal mucosal absorption of iron is equal to iron loss. This about 1 mg/d in men and 1.5 mg/d in menstruating women..
In hemochromatosis, mucosal absorption is greater than body requirements and amounts to 4 mg/d or more..
The progressive accumulation of iron increases plasma iron and transferrin saturation resulting in a progressive increase of plasma ferritin..
Since symptoms may be delayed until iron accumulation is excessive, hemochromatosis may not be recognized until total body iron is 10 g, or greater..
In women, features are uncommon before menopause because iron loss due to menses,pregnancy and childbirth tends to offset iron accumulation..
Iron overload occurs due to increased iron absorption from the GI tract, leading to chronic deposition of iron in the tissues..
Hepcidin is a liver derived peptide which controls basolateral iron transport in the intestine and iron release from macrophages and other cells by binding to ferroportin..
Hepcidin, in turn, responds to signals in the liver mediated by HFE, TfR2, and hemojuvelin preventing excessive absorption and storage.
Iron deposition in the pituitary causes hypogonadotropic hypogonadism in both men and women..
Tissue injury results from reactive free hydroxyl radicals generated when iron deposition in tissues catalyzes their formation and disruption of iron-laden lysosomes, from lipid peroxidation of subcellular organelles by excess iron…..

Fungal infection of skin | Do’s and Don’ts | Dermatologist | Dr. Aanchal Panth

Do’s and don’t: 7:10.
Fungal infections of skin.
Superficial fungal infections of skin are in the rise in India and become somewhat of an epidemic. It is important to understand the causes of fungal infection, precautions to be taken and effective treatment options. They are increasingly becoming a public health hazard with OPD’s being flooded with new cases of these fungal infections. Even though there are a variety of antifungals in the market, we are quickly going to run out of effective options if we do not control these infections properly..
.
There are many reasons for the sudden increase:
Urbanization, Over crowding, increased humidity, Long commute, Use of steroid creams,Non compliance to treatment leading to resistant strains.
The commonly seen fungal infections of skin are caused by dermatophytes. These fungi are skin loving and break the top layer of skin to derive nutrition for survival. They occur in areas where there is water logging or sweat logging such as body folds in the groin area, armpit, in buttock area and under the breast in women..
.
They appear as round, lesions with scaling. They are itchy and cause significant discomfort. They may become red and even causes burning sensation and irritation..
.
What should you do?
Consult a qualified health care professional who can make the correct diagnosis and administer proper treatment. Do not take medicines from a chemist. We get patients who go to the chemist/ pharmacist and tell them they have itching in the groin and the chemist hands over the medication without even looking at the lesion or knowing the history of pat medication. This is dangerous. Pharmacist study about the drug, the molecule and are experts at dispensing the correct medication. They are not equipped to make a diagnosis and prescribe medication..
You will have to take oral antifungals for a period of 3 weeks to 3 months depending on severity and past treatment. Whenever you visit a doctor for recurrent infections, make sure you take all you old prescriptions along so the doctor has an idea of what all medications you have taken and how you have responded..
.
Please understand that you have to complete the course of antifungals as suggested by the treating doctor. You might notice improvement within a week of treatment. Na d because some of these medications are expensive, people tend to discontinue it mid-way. This should absolutely not be done. The fungus becomes inactive but is not completely cleared from your skin. So, until it completely clears, there is a high chance of it coming back..
.
So please please remember that is very very important to complete the course..
.
I do not want to name any brand of antifungal creams as these fungal infections need to be treated by health professionals and you must visit a doctor. It is not something that you can treat at home..
.
Important things to remember if you have fungal infection:
· Take bath daily: twice a day if possible.
· Use a shower gel for bathing. If you use soap, use a small soap that can be discarded weekly..
· Dry yourself with a thin cotton towel. Towels need to be washed and ironed everyday.
· Iron your undergarments, belt area of trousers before wearing.
· Wear loose cotton clothing.
· If you work out in the gym, make sure your clothes are sweat absorbent. Take a bath as soon as you finish your exercise and wash the attire daily..
· All our clothes have to be washed separately and sun dried.
· Apply creams on the lesions and 2 cm area beyond the margin.
· Keep nails short.
· Do not scratch the lesion. If you inadvertently scratch, wash your hands immediately..
