After conducting series of health care camps in Lahore and Islamabad, Chughtai Lab in collaboration with Chughtai Foundation organized one-day medical camp at Junior Leaders School Foundation on 30th August 2016 to endure their objective of healthy Pakistan.

 

The medical camp is based on a standard health protocol where kids are being assessed for their basic health. The camp includes a series of stations lined up starting from BMI (the measure of body fat based on height and weight) to the doctor’s consultation and the last step includes the administration of medicines. In case there is any requirement of medical test, free blood test service is also provided to children by Chughtai Lab. Doctors from various institutions joined the camp as a volunteer.

 

The basic aim of the medical camp was to ensure the health of students and provide them required treatment if necessary. After holding the series of camps, the most common illness that has been found in the children was Anemia. Iron deficiency anemia in children is very commonly diagnosed and treated at Chughtai Foundation Medical Camps.

Here are some important points about Anemia that you should remember!

 

What is Anemia?

Anemia is a condition that develops when your blood lacks enough hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is needed to transport oxygen in the blood.

 

Causes

Anemia can happen if

• Your body doesn’t produce enough red blood cells
• Bleeding causes you to lose red blood cells
• Eating poor diet that may not contain enough iron
• During pregnancy, because it is the time when you need more iron. The amount of iron you eat during these times may not be enough.
• During the menstrual cycle, because the amount of iron you eat during this time may not be enough to replace the amount you lose with bleeding.

 

Symptoms

Anemia signs vary depending on the cause of your anemia. They may include:

• Fatigue
• Weakness
• Pale or yellowish skin
• Irregular heartbeats
• Shortness of breath
• Dizziness or lightheadedness
• Chest pain
• Cold hands and feet
• Headache
• A tingling feeling in the legs
• Brittle nails
• Tongue swelling
• Strange cravings to eat items such as dirt, clay or ice

 

Diagnosis

A diagnosis of anemia usually involves:

• Complete blood count (CBC), that measures all components of your blood.
• Medical and family history, that indicates whether you are anemic due to illness or genetic problem.
• Others blood tests.
• If you feel any of the symptoms mentioned above, your first step should be to consult your doctor.

Vitamin D is vital for muscles, bones and health. Research suggests it may have other benefits too, such as protecting against colds and fighting depression. Vitamin D is made in our body through exposure of sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Deficiency of Vitamin D may cause some serious problems like cancer.

Here are some ways to help you get enough vitamin D.

 

Take a balanced amount of Sunlight

UV radiation, Sun exposure is the best source of vitamin D. It prompts the body to make vitamin D, but too much sun exposure can increase risk of skin cancer. Nevertheless, a little amount of sun exposure without sunscreen can do the trick. 

 

Intake of food rich in Vitamin D

Eat foods that are rich in Vitamin D. Rich sources include egg, milk, fatty fish, some margarines and many more. Food, however, only makes a small contribution and it is difficult to get enough vitamin D from diet alone.

Vitamin D and calcium works together to make your bones strong. Make sure you get enough calcium by including a collection of dairy products, leafy vegetables, fish, nuts and almonds in your diet.
