Health plays a major role in our life and when it comes to our children we will do anything for them. There is an ongoing debate whether public school health safety is better than private schools? We all consider that a healthy mind and body will also mean that you are in a better place of dodging obesity or suffering another illness. This is important to think about when choosing a safe and healthy environment for your children as they spend most of their time in school.

Benefits of Safe Public School

We all know that public schools sometimes aren’t as good as private schools but we can make public schools just as good by adding a little bit of effort. The most obvious benefit of a public school is the decreasing cost of fees. Public schools are low in price because the government has to help the school out by supporting state financials. Nowadays, people demand a public school because it’s very difficult to hire private school teachers and employees. Safe public school should focus on health services that control diseases, record keeping and supervision of the health of school children and personnel.

Some Major Goals Government should Play

Public school should start a health program every year that is free of cost so that each student is available to medical treatment. The Government must be focused on health services dealt with health appraisals, control o

Fight Diabetes by becoming aware.

Diabetes is a disease that has become so mainstream, that glucose testing kits now come in fashion-friendly cases. Diabetes is a chronic disease which afflicts millions of people throughout the world. Cases of diabetes might lead to failure of kidneys, blindness, heart issues and several other serious conditions. Reports reveal that up to 80% of people who already have pre-diabetes move on to develop the typical type 2-diabetes. Doctors even claim that progressing from pre-diabetes to actual diabetes is a process that’s inevitable. Here are few ways you can fight against this slow yet steady disease.

#1: Have a check on your numbers

In order to diagnose whether or not you have diabetes, your doctor will send you for a blood test. For detecting Type 2 diabetes, this can be done by a glucose test by taking fasting blood. There’s another alternative method of going for an oral glucose tolerance test where the patient has to drink a 75 gram glucose drink and then get his blood tested 2 hours later to determine the values of blood sugar.

Have you been fighting a cold and now have a nagging cough that just won’t go away?

If answered yes, you might be suffering from acute bronchitis. Whenever your bronchial tubes take oxygen to your lungs from your windpipe, they can become inflamed which therefore can result in bronchitis. When this occurs, the lining of the bronchial tubes produces mucus which makes your cough even worse. Often times you can even suffer from bronchitis side effects including wheezing, which makes it hard for you to catch a breath. In order to know whether or not the illness is acute bronchitis or allergy, you should immediately meet your doctor. Even though there are other bronchitis symptoms that can disappear on their own, there are some that still need to be treated.

How to differentiate between chronic and acute Bronchitis?

It’s vital to determine the timeline of the health issue that you’re suffering from. If you’ve been suffering from breathing problems and a cough that has lasted for almost a month or maybe even a few years, that is considered to be called chronic bronchitis. This becomes a long-term cough issue which demands long-term treatment. There are some who suffer from very serious bronchitis which they have throughout their lives.

Should you, or should you not be concerned about chickenpox?

What is chickenpox?

Its an infection that is characterized by itchy red blisters that appear all over the body that usually affect children. It’s also very uncommon to have the chickenpox infection more than once, although it has happened before. The chickenpox vaccine was introduced in the mid- 1990s and since then, there has been a huge decline in cases.

Is it possible to prevent chickenpox?

The chickenpox vaccination only prevents 98% in people. It is recommended that your child should get the shot when they are between 12 and 15 months old, followed by a booster between ages 4-6. Older children and adults who haven’t been vaccinated or exposed may receive catch-up doses of the vaccine. As chickenpox tends to be more severe in older adults, people who haven’t been vaccinated may opt to get the shots later. If you are not able, or have never received the vaccine, you will want to avoid the virus at all costs by limiting contact with infected people. Be careful because chickenpox can’t be identified by its blisters until it has already been spread to others for days.

How to treat chickenpox

Most treatments for chickenpox are aimed at decreasing the amount of severe itching. Tylenol can be used to decrease fevers and aches.
