Another patient just died, but who’s responsible?

When I was doing my internship at a hospital (I don’t want to name it), we used to go on ward rounds. We’ll walk observingly at the back while the doctors were in the front, we were only asked questions for educational reasons, besides that we were just like shadows. We had a patient, let’s call her Helen. Helen was a mother with three kids under 12years. She had been admitted because she had a stroke.

The weight loss resolution

I want to lose …..kg of weight in 2017.

You’ve been given another opportunity to do it right this time. As the New Year rolls in, a lot of people will be making resolutions to make themselves better. It’s a good thing to make New Year’s resolution, but what are you putting in place to help you achieve it? And starting off on the right foot, is really important.

PANIC ATTACK

Keek’s Help guide – Panic Attack

“Relax, stop panicking”. If you’ve ever had a panic attack you’ll realize just how useless those words can be.

Have you ever had a panic attack before? You’ll feel like you’re dying. Your heart starts beating faster, you’re sweating, you’re shaking, you feel nauseous, you feel like your world is about to end or you’re about to faint. Some of the symptoms are similar to a heart attack, that’s why some people race to the emergency room when they are having a panic attack. Some people have milder symptoms, some people’s own are a little more serious.

How the recession is affecting our health

It’s no secret that the economy in Nigeria is tough. Being in a recession means that there is less money in circulation and there are more unemployed people. But what does this mean for people’s health. How is this recession affecting people’s health? I am going to tell you what I have observed from myself and from the hundreds of patients I see every day.

A healthier body means a healthier mind

How to manage diabetes

Diabetes can be the best thing to happen to you, or the worst, you decide. I know it sounds strange saying “the best thing to happen to you” when it is obviously a condition that no one wants. But some people have it, actually a lot of people have it, 1.5million in Nigeria alone. How do you manage a condition that has claimed millions of lives and is described as the 7th world killer? A condition that is the leading cause of blindness and foot amputations? Before I get into it, let me tell you a story about two patients of mine:

My weight is really none of your business

I recently saw a picture online of four generations of women, a mom, her mom, her grandmother and her daughter. Now the mom of the little girl was more full figured, you need to see the comments. “She needs to lose some weight”, “women need to be careful not to allow themselves get too fat” , “It’s a nice picture, but she needs to lose weight”. It’s funny how people take it upon themselves to comment on people that they barely know.

3 Reasons why you need to be a part of a wellness group

More people are becoming more health conscious. I am happy about this awakening. I see people who are trying to make healthier choices for themselves and their families. But there are challenges that make it difficult and impractical for some people. From the lack of time, to the lack and confusion with some information, to a lack of motivation and support. If you have these challenges then you need to consider joining a “wellness support group”
