New Article by Dr. Tansar Mir, “Vitamins and Supplements – Do They Really Work?”

Featured

We all want to look and feel our best. Many seem to believe that vitamins and other supplements can make a noticeable difference. But do they really work? Dr. Tansar Mir provides his thoughts in a new article.

Have you ever wondered why we need to take vitamins and supplements when our body can get them from the food we eat? Why do doctors prescribe them?

To explain, medical doctor and surgeon Tansar Mir, MD has published an informational article on this subject in an easy-to-understand way. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Mir at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

It depends on the particular condition of a person. If a person takes a healthy balanced diet by strictly following a diet plan, they would not need to take vitamins and supplements. On the other hand, if a person’s diet consists of beef burgers, greasy fries, and cheesy pizzas, their body will only receive a huge amount of simple carbs and fats which are not good for the body. Their body will lack essential vitamins and nutrients required for healthy growth. Overtime, they will develop problems for which their doctor will prescribe vitamins and supplements for them.

In older people, the need for vitamins and minerals increases. They develop bone-related diseases such as osteoporosis. Their doctor will recommend them to take calcium supplements along with vitamin D which helps in the absorption of calcium into the bones. Care must be taken not to overdose. Taking more than the required amount will not quicken the recovery process. They must stick to the number of pills that the doctor has prescribed.

Here are some of the major vitamins and supplements that people require for maintaining their health.

Vitamin D

We all know the fact that the sun is a major source of vitamin D. When exposed to sunlight, our bodies convert the ultraviolet radiations into vitamin D. So, most people do not require vitamin D supplements because their bodies make enough of it from the sun. This doesn’t mean that you damage your skin and get tanned by exposing your body in the sun. You only need to expose your skin for a small amount of time for your body to generate vitamin D. Moreover, the amount of skin exposed and the time of the day significantly affect the production of vitamin D. So who needs vitamin D supplements?

People who are bedridden and who wear clothing that does not expose their skin to the sun are the ones who require vitamin D pills. Moreover, newborn babies and children up till 4 years of age need vitamin D supplements.

Folic Acid

Folic acid supplements are prescribed by doctors to pregnant women. This helps in protecting the baby from defects such as formation of gap in the spinal cord.

Vitamins A and C

Usually doctors prescribe this supplement to children who are in the growing age. Some children trouble their parents while eating. They do not accept new foods and dislike food on the basis of color, texture and shape. This leaves them unable to maintain a balanced diet. That’s why doctors prescribe these vitamins because they are essential for healthy body growth and development.

Iron Supplements

Iron is a major component of hemoglobin – a substance which gives blood its red color. It is present in the red blood cells. It transports oxygen from the lungs to all parts of your body. In case your body has a low level of iron, sufficient amount of oxygen does not reach all parts of your body and this makes you feel weak and dizzy. This condition is commonly known as anemia. Doctors prescribe iron supplements to anemic patients so that their iron levels return to normal.

Vitamins and supplements are required by people under special circumstances. Taking vitamin pills without any reason can result in overdose and can lead to problems. So, make sure that you and people around you are not taking vitamins and supplements without any reason.

Supporting a Loved One When They Are Struck by a Medical Condition or undergoing Surgery

Dr. Tansar Mir

If someone close to you is undergoing surgery or some other medical treatment, there is something you can do to lend support. In his new article, Dr. Tansar Mir provides advice.

Regardless of how severe the medical issue may be, dealing with surgery or illnesses can be difficult. In this day and age, surgery, diseases, conditions, and illnesses are generally not only associated with tremendous amounts of pain anymore, but medical issues can be emotionally and psychologically draining. Add to that the fact that most treatments today are quite costly.

But if someone close to you is undergoing surgery or some other medical treatment, there is something you can do to lend support. To explain, medical doctor and surgeon Tansar Mir, MD has published an informational article on this subject in an easy-to-understand way. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Mir at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

Having a loved one undergoing surgery or being struck by a serious disease can be incredibly exhausting for a number of different reasons. Not only is your mind constantly racing at how the treatment will progress, but you’re also left wondering about all the possibilities and the different ways in which you can offer your love and support to your friends and family in testing times.

Since we understand that you might not be able to think straight when your loved ones are undergoing medical treatment, we’ve got the perfect list of things to do in order to support your friends and family when they are in need.

Interested in learning how you can offer support to your loved one? Read on to find out as we tell you the best and most thoughtful ways in which you can show your love and support.

Accept the situation

If you’re like most people, you might have a hard time wrapping your head around the fact that your loved one may not be in the best of health for the next few weeks. With that said, however, accepting the situation and coming to terms with the fact that your loved ones are going through a tough time is the best way to ensure that you’ll be able to provide them with the support and love that they need during a difficult phase in their lives. If you’re too preoccupied with worrying about all that could have been done to prevent such a situation from arising in the first place, chances are that you won’t be able to provide your friends or family with the love and support that they need most when they are suffering from a serious illness, condition or disease. By accepting the situation, you will essentially divert your focus on ways to be there for them and cater to their every need when they are going through physical and emotional distress.

Show them unconditional love

The psychological aspect of serious and life-threatening diseases can never be emphasized enough. While most patients at some point or the other begin to feel like they are burdening their friends and loved ones, this especially holds true for patients who are suffering from serious diseases and may be bedridden.

If your loved one is struck by a serious disease and needs your help and assistance with even the most basic of activities or tasks such as walking to the front door or eating, showing them unconditional love is your best bet. Since it is easy for patients to feel like they are troubling those around them too much, or that you do not want to spend time with them any longer, showing your sick friends and family unconditional love in these testing times is your best bet to ensure that they do not only feel valued, but also know that they have a support system that they can count on when the going gets tough.

Whether you can help out by preparing health and nutritional meals at home or making handmade heartfelt cards, it is important to leave no stone unturned when it comes to making your loved one feel better.

Give them company

The most common complaint of patients suffering from serious illnesses – especially when they are on the older side – is that they feel lonely during appointments. Being there for your loved one during their appointments when doctors are breaking the worst of news to them or providing them with action plans for treatment and regaining stability in life is one of the best ways of showing that you care.

Accompanying your loved ones on their doctor’s appointments also helps you give off positive vibes and show them that they are not alone. By being there with your ill friend or family member, you can also help them believe that they have a strong support system that will always be there for them no matter what.

Monitor their health

While your loved one with a serious illness or medical condition might have a team of healthcare professionals or doctors keeping a close eye on their case, keeping track of their health and monitoring it in any way possible is a great way to show your love and support. Often, patients can get agitated about the fact that their loved ones are not in sight when they are being injected, having blood drawn, or being provided with pill after pill to gulp down. This is exactly why you should make it a point to keep track of the medications and health status of your loved one to ensure that they feel like they are still important to you. One thing, however, that it is important to note that in serious scenarios, doctors might not grant you permission to take things in your own hands since that could cause problems. Should that be the case, it is important to respect the decision and authority of the doctor or other medical professionals and continue to offer support in other ways.

Help out with finances

As mentioned earlier, treatments for serious illnesses can cause a fortune. Needless to say, patients are often distressed worrying about their financial situation and how they’ll be able to cope with all of the medical bills. For this reason, it is important to help out with the medical expenses of the patient in any way possible to ensure that they know that they are covered and don’t have one extra thing to worry about.

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tansar N. Mir starts Blog about plastic surgery issues

Dr. Tansar N. Mir, Plastic Surgeon, New York

Experienced surgeon’s blog will address diverse issues in plastic & reconstructive surgery, such as how to promote better healing after surgery, the surge of silicon injections by unqualified personnel, and considerations before getting plastic surgery.

Doctor Tansar N. Mir, an experienced plastic & reconstructive surgeon based in New York, started a Blog to provide easy-to-understand information about the plastic surgery issues so that the public and patients can easily understand the underlying medical issues and procedures. The Blog is available at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

Americans spend billions of dollars every year on plastic surgery. Many people try to enhance their appearance or correct what they perceive to be disformed. Common procedures include breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and liposuction. There are, however, certain risks associated with such procedures. Thus, researching the specific surgery that you have in mind for yourself is a good idea. Also, make sure to be in good hands, meaning a qualified surgeon with experience in this particular procedure. Some commonly occurring issues in plastic surgery include:

Dissatisfaction with the result – plastic surgery is not an exact science and the results may differ depending on many different factors such as age, gender, body type, body weight, and skin condition.

Nerve Damage – a common issue in all plastic surgeries. The negative effects include numbness and tingling.

Infection – also a common issue in all plastic surgeries. While utmost care is taken to avoid infection, it occurs in a few percent of plastic surgeries and may require additional medication, for example with antibiotics.

Scars – plastic surgeons are trained to keep the scars to a minimum, but they are usually unavoidable. In some cases, patients suffer hypertrophic scarring, meaning that the scar is unusually red and raised.

Hematoma – which is essentially a pocket of blood resembling a painful bruise. A hematoma occurs in a few percent of breast augmentation surgeries, and also after a facelift. Hematoma a general risk in plastic surgery, and it may sometimes require additional surgery.

Organ Damage – some surgeries may adversely affect internal organs, such as liposuction. The surgical probe used for liposuction may accidentally cause punctures, which may require additional surgery.

Seroma – a condition when blood pools directly under the skin, with swelling and pain. These can become infected and may have to be drained.

Blood Loss – occurs in most plastic surgeries, but is usually limited. If there is an uncontrolled blood loss, it can result in a sudden drop in blood pressure and even result in death. Note, however, that such blood loss can also occur internally.

Anesthesia – thanks to anesthesia, the bodily pain of plastic surgery is greatly reduced, yet it has the potential for complications. For example, general anesthesia renders patients unconscious, but can lead to issues such as stroke and heart attacks.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – is a rare complication. Essentially, it means that a blood clots forms in a deep vein (often the leg), breaks off, and travels to other parts of the body (such as the lungs, causing pulmonary embolism).

Dr. Mir explains that “even though it is particularly important for this type of medical treatment, in today’s plastic surgery practices, nurses, staff and medical doctors are rushed and rarely have the time to answer all questions that the patients have. That’s when patients start researching on the internet. They find opinions, reports from other patients, but rarely explanations from medical doctors. One should not act based solely on information found on the internet, but instead review the issues with a qualified medical doctor, preferably with the benefit of the patient’s medical history. Also, when patients research online and do find relevant medical articles, they find highly complex answers that are very difficult to understand for a layperson, or even contradictory. I hope to fill that information gap with explanatory articles that anybody can understand.”
