from @alertdoctors - A syndrome is defined as a recognizable pattern of signs, symptoms and/or behaviours. In other words, a combination of classic signs attached to some particular conditions makes them syndromes. In the case of syndrome X, most of the disorders associated with it don’t have obvious signs and symptoms, defying the first rule of the word ‘syndrome’. Syndrome X is also known as the metabolic syndrome.
Simply put, the metabolic syndrome is a group of five risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing cardiac disease, diabetes and stroke. These include:
1. Hypertension (Increased blood pressure, greater than 130/85 mmHg)
2. Hyperglycemia (High blood sugar levels, usually due to insulin resistance)
3. Truncal obesity (Excess fat around the waist), the only probable sign of this syndrome.
5. Low levels of High-Density Lipoprotein, the good cholesterol.
These conditions collectively lead to the development of serious health problems. Having just one of these conditions doesn’t mean you have metabolic syndrome but it does mean that there’s a greater risk of serious complications. Also, they seldom exist singly as having one is an indication of an underlying other or an impending new one. Worse still, you don’t know until there’s a resulting complication in most cases. These complications may include:
1. Atherosclerosis (Hardening of the arteries)
2. Diabetes Mellitus
3. Myocardial Infarction (Heart attack)
5. Peripheral artery disease, to mention a few.

Amazed by these before and after results!
Teeth will continue to whiten up to 24 hours after treatment and it is very important to stick to the steps.
No dark beverages or dark foods for 48-72 hours. No smoking for 48-72 hours. Always remember to drink coffee & dark beverages through a straw ⠀⠀
Compass @americorps member Bea recently led families in a lesson about teeth! Parents and kids read books about going to the dentist and brushing your teeth. Kids had a great time counting teeth and matching them to the number of teeth in the book!
How I see a clean home and a healthy family ❤️
A distinct memory regarding hygiene I have while growing up, is that of a green cap full of golden liquid that would go into my freshly filled bucket of water before taking a bath (and into the laundry wash and on to wounds, and general cleaning, you name it). Dettol has been a household name in India for generations, our grandmothers would swear by it, and we still do. So when I was invited for 'A hygiene brand product launch' a few days back, I was quite sceptical as to how'd I come to terms with it, when my first choice and loyalty has forever been towards Dettol.
I was kinda nervous when the mom mandate was to be revealed, but lo and behold the launch was by none other than Dettol itself. For the first time in this product category, a brand has gone the extra mile to know what moms across the country want in the hygiene products that are used by their families, and cocreated this new super gentle range for the whole family, specially keeping in mind our little humans. And I honestly couldn't have been more relieved about it. The calming tulsi and jasmine fragrances reinforce the gentleness of this product line, so if you haven't tried it yet, you are missing out on something pretty awesome. My little girl is now washing hands zillion times a day without this mama breaking a sweat about it. After all hygiene with a healthy skin can only mean happiness, right? ❤️
#Healthy#teeth are important to your child’s overall health. They help your #child eat and talk. Strong #oralcare helps set good #dental habits as your child grows. Poor #oral#care can lead to #infection#disease or other #teeth problems.
Help make dental #hygiene fun with these tips.
Let #children help choose their own #toothbrush They can pick one that has a favorite color or character.
Let children help choose #toothpaste They can pick their favorite flavor.
Read books or watch videos that talk about #dentalhygiene
Use a timer to make sure kids #brush their teeth for 2 minutes. Or play their favorite song to help keep track of time.
Reward children for good oral care. Do not give them food or sugary treats. Offer something healthy or simple instead, like apple slices or a gold star.
Plan a fun activity following your child’s #dentist visit. When to see a dentist?
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children see a dentist around their first birthday. This gives the dentist a chance to look for early problems with your child’s teeth.
Visiting the dentist from a young age will help your child be more comfortable. It also establishes the good habit of regular dental checkups. Everyone should see the dentist twice a year.
Contact your dentist right away if:
your child has tooth pain or a tooth or mouth infection.
your child loses a permanent tooth. If you find the tooth, put it in milk and take it to the dentist with you. They may be able to reattach it. Call us today if you have any questions about your child’s dental needs. Dr. Kaivan Kiai and his team will be happy to help you for excellent care of your family dental needs
Are you wanting to do better with your #dental care? Have you had problems with taking care of your #oral hygiene? If so, then you’ll find this guide to be useful. Follow along and you’ll figure out what you can do to be sure that any dental problem you have is taken care of.
Eat nutritious meals and avoid harmful snacking for better teeth. Try to avoid carbs like pretzels, chips, candy, and other junk food. These types of foods can remain on the surface of your #teeth which can cause painful and expensive dental issues to fix. If you eat anything sticky, you should #brush your teeth as soon as you can.
For best results, your #toothbrush should be kept clean. Make sure that you clean all of the #toothpaste and debris from it after you are finished with it. Be sure to place your toothbrush in a proper toothbrush holder to prevent the bristles contacting anything dirty. To prevent the development of bacteria, do not store your toothbrush in a container. Also, replace old brushes frequently.

If sparkling white teeth from a toothpaste sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is. While non-prescription whitening pastes and rinses may remove light stains on the surface of teeth, they will not produce the best possible results. Only your #dentist can help you to achieve these results, often with bleach.
To ensure your teeth are getting properly cleaned, make it a point to brush your teeth for a minimum of two minutes. It’s very easy to get bored when brushing your teeth, and boredom can lead to a rush job. However, thinking of a favorite song or some other pleasant thought during brushing can help pass the time. It’s important to give your teeth the attention they deserve.
Replace toothbrushes regularly. Toothbrushes should be replaced every three to four months. Regardless of how good the brush looks, the bristles have probably seen their share of action. You will not get good results with an old toothbrush. It is important you get a new toothbrush every three months.
Did you know that the sequence that you eat your foods in can play a role in whether or not you develop cavities? #dentistry#dentalclinic#montebello#dentalcleaning
