By Arnaldo Liechtenstein, physician: "Whenever, I teach #clinical #Medicine to students in the fourth year of medicine, I ask the following question:

"What are the causes of mental confusion in the elderly?"

Some answer: "Tumors in the head".

I answer: No!

Others suggest: "Early symptoms of Alzheimer's".

I answer again: No!

With each rejection of their answers, their responses dry up.

And they are even more open-mouthed, when I list the three most common causes:

- uncontrolled diabetes
- urinary infection
- dehydration

It may sound like a joke; but it isn't.

People over 60 generally stop feeling thirsty and consequently, stop drinking fluids.
When no one is around to remind them to drink fluids, they quickly dehydrate.

Thread for Doctors (a thread to be updated time to time)

I will write here about,
What doctors can do to protect themselves, against complaints under SC/ST Act, complaints in police for medical negligence, complaints for medical negligence in

2/ police station, complaints filed in criminal courts, summons by court to private doctors to appear as a witness with medical record of a patient, cases in civil court for damages, steps a doctor can take if he perceives threats from a patient, etc.

Why would Australia's prime minister express concern about youth gender medicine? #AusPol #AusVotes2022 #Health #GenderClinics
Schools, social media & the wider culture increasingly send impressionable kids the message they can "choose" to be a boy or a girl, or something in between. This adult theory -- with its post-modern denial of biological reality -- used to be confined to the fringes of higher ed.
Gender non-conforming kids, who might otherwise grow up to be gay/bisexual, are now exposed to the idea that unease in their bodies, not fitting in with peers, may mean they are the opposite sex. Autistic kids may be especially vulnerable to this "black & white" thinking.

In Q1 of 2022, Telus Health increased their revenue by $17 million.

Should a for-profit corporation be generating substantial profits in BC’s publicly funded #healthcare sector?

Today I asked @jjhorgan exactly that. He did not answer. 1/ #bcpoli #Health…
Minister of Health @AdrianDix responded by saying healthcare in BC is more public than it was 5 years ago.

It’s hard to square the expansion of for-profit corporations in the #healthcare sector with “becoming more public.” 2/ #bcpoli #health
Telus has been actively expanding its healthcare business, charging thousands to individuals for access to primary care.

Access that is meant to be covered by our universal healthcare system. And it’s not just Telus. 3/ #bcpoli #healthcare #BCHealth

It's the Oz election campaign & there's confusion among politicians & journos about trans-identifying minors & their access to surgery. Short answer: biological girls under 18 *do* get trans mastectomy in Australia. To say it doesn't happen is wrong. #AusPol #AusVotes #Health
In Australia, 15 is the youngest known age for "top surgery", as it's often called online. See this news report & screenshot.…
Family Court has been the only info source on under-18 trans surgery. Until the 2018 case re Matthew, the court had to give the green light, even if docs & parents agreed. This was said to be "discriminatory". Now, judges only hear under-18 surgery cases if there's a dispute.

It is #NationalNursingWeek - the @bcndp will take this opportunity to say they support #nurses.

But the reality in BC is that nurses are being denied PPE.

And staffing shortages are resulting in unacceptable nurse-to-patient ratios - actively endangering patients. /1 #bcpoli
In 2021, the @BCNursesUnion found:

35% of the #nurses they interviewed were more likely to quit in two years as a result of the pandemic.

82% of BCNU members noted a decline in #MentalHealth during the pandemic and 65% noted a decline in physical health. /2 #bcpoli #Health
.@BCNursesUnion President Aman Grewal has stated that nurses “are not allowed to share this reality openly.”

Today I asked the Minister @AdrianDix about this culture of fear preventing #nurses from speaking out and what he is doing to improve the situation. /3 #bcpoli #health

He explains how the rats bred in a perfect environment and used in medical studies are genetically mutated. They are 100% unreliable. He explains how this DNA mutation resulted in them developing extremely long telomeres. Due to these telomeres the rats are able to survive
large amounts of toxic substances without it hurting them on a cellular level. Meaning they can ward off death, injury and resist cancer for a lot longer then regularly bred animals and even humans. He goes on to explain how pharma companies use this information from these animal

Okay, I have 2 major doubts in this #HippocraticOath issue at #Madurai:

1. Medical colleges in #TamilNadu were communicated about the change in oath by @NMC_IND 2.5 months ago. It was admitted by the @MaduraiMedical VP in the story (published on Feb 15) below. But...

Why the #TamilNadu govt. did not issue a clarification or circular to all govt. & private medical colleges for the past 2.5 months till April 30, reiterating the stand over a Centre vs. State conflict?

So, why didn't @Subramanian_ma & @RAKRI1 instruct the Director of Medical Education (DME) to issue a circular to all colleges in Feb, immediately when they learnt about the issue, if TN had decided to stick to #HippocraticOath, as opposed to NMC guideline❓❓

Today I asked @AdrianDix about the #familydoctor crisis in BC.

900,000 British Columbians are without primary care, and those with it are finding their access increasingly cut back.

And 40% of BCers are afraid of losing their doctor. 1/ #bcpoli #healthcare #health
The @bcndp have opened 27 Urgent and Primary Care Centres as a “solution” to the crisis.

They are quick to open them, but without funding plans or adequate staffing. They’re open limited hours, they fill up quickly, & they gatekeep those who can use them. 2/ #bcpoli #health
There have been 1 million visits to UPCCs, but how many of those 1 million visits were to access primary care? How many people were turned away? How many became attached to a doctor after their visit? 3/ #bcpoli #health

Medicare – A National Health Insurance Fund
The history of Medicare goes back to President Teddy Roosevelt. In 1912, his presidential campaign included a national health insurance plan. The idea of a national health plan didn’t gain steam until 1945..
🧵 (thread)

Pres. Harry S Truman championed the idea of a national health care fund in 1945. He wanted national health insurance for all Americans and fought to pass a bill but was unsuccessful. It took another 20 years before Medicare became a reality.


John F. Kennedy
After studies showed that 56% of Americans over the age of 65 were not covered by health insurance, JFK made an unsuccessful push for a national healthcare plan.

Just IN: 'Medicalised #FGM' - #Uganda Indicts #Kenya and #Sudan 😯
Ugandan girls and women are being mutilated from hospitals in the neighbouring Kenya and South Sudan, a senior Govt official has revealed.
The State Minister for Gender and Culture, Ms Peace Regis Mutuuzo, says
some girls and women from Karamoja and Sebei sub-regions sneak into Kenya and South Sudan to secretly undergo medical mutilation.
Ms Mutuuzo said she got to know about the horrible stories of medicalised mutilation last year in September when she led a delegation of legislators
for a field mission in the FGM practising districts.
She said whereas some girls and women were voluntarily seeking medical mutilation, others were being mutilated against their will during child birth.
“Medicalised genital mutilation is not happening in Uganda. It is happening

Is humidity control just for warm-humid weather? Or can you grow mold in winter?

A little thread for the part of #energytwitter that hasn't seen the bigger picture of #buildingscience.

First, if you think you're immune to moisture & mold problems because your climate is dry in summer, let me invite you to take a look inside your fridge. What's inside that container in the back that you've forgotten for a couple of months.

Extreme example: Family in Kansas had a poorly insulated building enclosure. They kept the inside relative humidity at 50% while outdoor temperature was -5 °F.

Yes, that's ice on the walls & ceiling inside the house. Here are the details:

Current research on microplastics is the stuff of nightmares-

They’re dangerous, they’re spread through our food, they're in the air... they’re everywhere

Thread 1/x
#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
Much of the research is trapped behind paywalls, and only reported on in a limited, fragmented pattern

-like so much else when large corporations cause environmental damage and impose widespread health impacts on the public

#health #ClimateCrisis #PlasticPollution #food
The growing risks of microplastics are a direct function of an ongoing push by the same sociopathic corporations that are driving the climate crisis
