Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Prognosis and Latest Treatment for Atrial Fibrillation

Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Prognosis And Latest Treatment For Atrial Fibrillation

If you have heart beat that is quicker than 60-80 beats per minute at rest or 90-115 beats per minutes during exercise, you might have fast and irregular heart beat or arrhythmia.    There are different kinds of arrhythmia but atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type


AF occurs when more than one cardiac cell in the upper chamber (atrial) of your heart are beating.  This usually occurs in patients who have pre-existing cardiovascular diseases (secondary AF) such as coronary artery disease, cardiac surgery, hypertension, myocardial infarction, valve disorders (e.g. mitral valve disease) and congestive heart failure.  The changes in cardiac structure associated with these diseases have damaged the conduction pathway of the cardiac muscle, making AF more prone to happen.

Hyperprolactinemia: Causes, Symptoms, Prognosis, Diagnosis and Latest Treatment

Hyperprolactinemia: Causes, Symptoms, Prognosis, Diagnosis and Latest Treatment

Hyperprolactinemia is one of the most common pituitary abnormalities, which is caused by an increased secretion of prolactin (above 20ng/ml) from the pituitary gland.  Although the disorder is detected in less than 1% of the general population, it has been found in up to 25% of patients with secondary amenorrhea. 

The most common symptoms of hyperprolactinemia are secondary amenorrhea (cessation of menstruation) and/or galactorrhea (the secretion of breast milk in men, or in women who are not breastfeeding an infant).  In men, hyperprolactinemia may also lead to decreased libido or erectile dysfunction. 


Causes and Treatments

Pathologic hyperprolactinemia can have many different causes.  It can be caused by prolactinomas (benign tumors of the pituitary glands), hypothyroidism or treatment with certain medications (e.g. clozapine, methyldopa, phenothiazine derivates and metoclopramide).

What Are the Latest Discoveries on Alcoholism Studies?

What Are The Latest Discoveries On Alcoholism Studies?

The latest string of facts to emerge regarding alcoholism is staggering. A National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism study of over 43,000 American adults found that more Americans develop alcoholism each year than any other mental disorder.

Over a one year period, nearly 2% became alcoholics in need of alcohol treatment and an additional 1% showed signs of regular binge drinking. The damage is believed to exceed over 0 million annually and contributes to nearly half of all car accidents, claiming 100,000 lives.

“Alcohol can change gene expression in the brain. This is believed to be responsible for many of the hallmarks of addiction, such as tolerance, physical dependence and cravings, as well as the consequences of chronic alcoholism, such as neurotoxicity (brain damage),” said Dr. R. Adron Harris, director of UT Austin’s Waggoner Center for Alcohol and Addiction Research.
