Hello Friends! 😀 Here's a brief enlightenment on hypoglycemia.
Hypoglycemia simply means low blood glucose. Glucose is obtained from food and serves as an important energy source. It is basically fuel for our body. Without enough glucose, our body cannot perform its normal functions.
Anybody can experience hypoglycemia because it is caused by several factors such as fasting, poor appetite, pregnancy, excess alcohol intake, after rigorous exercises, diabetes, medical conditions, as side effect of some drugs and so on.
Severe and prolonged hypoglycemia could lead to seizures and nervous system breakdown.
If you or anyone around you experiences more than one of the symptoms of hypoglycemia in the picture above immediately go for a bottle of soft drink containing sugar or take some glucose tablets before relaxing to eat a proper meal. Also, if you experience this often kindly talk to your pharmacist or medical doctor about it and you will be taken care of appropriately.
PS: Health is wealth. Talk to your pharmacist. Patient care is our priority.😀❤💪 Repost from @real_pharmacist
Probiyotiklerin faydaları nelerdir?
🔹️Bağırsak duvarında bulunan boşluklara yerleşir ve bu bölgelere hastalık yapıcı bakterilerin yerleşmesini engellerler.
🔹️Asit ortam oluşturarak bazı mayaların çoğalmalarını engellerler.
🔹️Araştırmalar sonucunda probiyotiklerin salgıladıkları bazı enzimler aracılığı ile östrojen seviyesini düzenledikleri bulunmuştur.
🔹️Bağırsaklarda B grubu vitaminlerin üretilmesinde görevlidirler.
🔹️Hastalık yapıcı bakterilerin ürettikleri toksin düzeyini azaltırlar.
🔹️Kansere neden olan maddelerin zararlarını azaltırlar.
🔹️Serotonin maddesinin salınımına yardımcı olarak depresyon ve stres üzerinde olumlu etki gösterirler.
🔹️Kolesterol seviyesinin dengede tutulmasına yardımcı olurlar.
🔹️Antibiyotik kullanımı sırasında ve sonrasında düzenli olarak kullanılan probiyotikler bozulan bağırsak mikroflorasını yerine getirebilir.
There is no giant leap that lands you on your goals, instead you’ll end up taking many steps on the journey to your destination. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️Current state: impressed that *eye* still know how to use this thing 😂 the #TransformationTuesday about it is that when I first picked up an ophthalmoscope I was really bad at eye exams. Like really bad. Like held it backwards and couldn’t turn it on, bad. It took tons of practice (and having to repeat a competency) for me to feel confident performing this assessment. Years later, I get to teach first year pharmacy students how to perform this exam in the clinical skills course 🙌🏾. That difficult thing you’re trying to learn? You’re gonna master it. Just remember it may not happen overnight and that’s just fine. What’s something you were terrible at starting out, but now you’re a pro? And how’d you get good at it? Share your advice, so we can all benefit from your suggestions ~~🤓 #melaninmagic#TheAfrocentricDoc#punnydoc
Women could soon know how far along they are in pregnancy and their risk of premature delivery by having simple blood tests, according to US researchers.
Based on fetal RNA, they say the tests can predict how much time is left in a pregnancy with about the same accuracy and lower cost than current methods.
The study authors, from Stanford University in California, previously showed that the maternal blood contains free-floating RNA molecules, each one a transcript of genes that are active in both fetus and mother, and that the types and amounts of these molecules changed over the course of pregnancy.
In the current pilot study, they found that a combination of only nine RNAs could accurately predict the time remaining until delivery for both primigravida women and multigravida women.
The blood test's accuracy, within 14 days of the actual gestational age at delivery, was similar to that of ultrasound estimates.
An added benefit of the blood test is that, unlike the ultrasound, it doesn't rely on the woman's recollection of her last menstrual period.
The researchers also used a separate set of RNAs to identify women who were at risk of preterm delivery.
This test predicted preterm and full-term births with an accuracy exceeding 80%, the study found.
The researchers believe that similar blood tests can also be developed to identify and monitor fetuses with congenital defects that can be treated in utero.
My very first white coat! This is just my intern coat for the pharmacy I’m working at but it makes me so happy to be able to wear it! I have been learning so much about how a pharmacy works. I’ve never had a customer service job so I’m getting used to that as well. 😅 It makes me just want to be a pharmacist already so bad!! 👩🏽⚕️I leave tomorrow for a few days to go to get my apartment and financial situation figured out for pharmacy school. The trip will give me time to write up my next blog post... I hope everyone’s summer is going well!
This hanger is from Etsy, it was a gift from my parents and it says “Rachel 1st White Coat” I can’t wait to get my real one!
Happy Monday everyone!!!👋🏼😘 The highly requested blog post is now live!Head over to my link (link in bio) to read “How To Be A Stand Out Pharmacy Student”👩🏼⚕️✨

We had such a perfect weekend💜
Boating, camping, swimming, jet skiing (is that a real word?), kayaking, & more without a single injury. I came home & tripped down our stairs & ended up with a sprained ankle 😂 Leave it to me & my clumsiness 🤦🏼♀️ Now I’ll be binge watching Netflix all evening & having Derek baby me 🤷🏼♀️
