Every year summer season gets lots of diseases but this time Hyderabad is experiencing pre-summer spurt of varipus diseases. Doctors advised to senior citizens and children to keep a tap on their health as things go beyond control and cause sudden hospitalisation.
Rapidly rising maximum daytime temperatures have led to an increase in dyspepsia, dehydration, and low blood pressure cases, according to local hospitals.
The month of February is typically known for its cold temperatures, but this year the temperature started to rise in January. The city’s daytime temperatures have been on the upper side during winter season, with the exception of a few days in December.
According to specialists, the risks of dysentery, diarrhoea, and food poisoning have also progressively increased during the past week. The current maximum daytime temperature in the city is around 35 degrees Celsius, whereas it reached 36 degrees in Mahbubnagar, Nizamabad, Ramagundam, and Bhadrachalam, all of which are recognised for having cool climates.
Dermatological conditions and conjunctivitis, according to doctors, are also being caused by rising temperatures and continuous sun exposure.
While many people adopted organic diets and increased their intake of different kinds of seeds, there has already been an overall rise in dysplexia (burping, heartburn, and indigestion), and some people report that it is growing worse with the change in seasons, according to experts.
“Two days ago, I treated a patient who reported having a severe stomachache and vomiting continuously. After reviewing his medical history, it was discovered that the patient had a long history of dysplexia brought on by eating a lot of sunflower seeds. Modified eating habits have been linked to stomach troubles, which are particularly aggravated by rising temperatures, according to Dr. Sanjeev Singh Yadav, a general practitioner and the chairman of the Hospital Board of India. He claimed to encounter four to five such instances each day.
So what is one to do? “It’s best to have enough water in the summer. To avoid dehydration from fluid loss in the body, an average person should drink at least 3 to 4 litres of water per day. Drinking water before and after stepping outside in the afternoon will assist keep the body’s water and fluid balance in tact, according to Dr. G. Navodaya, a general medicine consultant with Care Hospitals in Hyderabad. #hydnews #hydkhabar #hydlive
