#Poly_Cystic_Ovary_Syndrome PCOS

PCOS is a HORMONAL DISORDER that affects Women of REPRODUCTIVE AGE (16 - 45 years of age).

1 out of 10 (10%) of ladies are diagnosed with PCOS. 🚺

#PCOS affects woman’s hormonal levels thereby AFFECTING the OVARIES.

A Thread 👇 Image
In HEALTHY WOMEN, the ovaries produce a very small amount of MALE HORMONES called as ANDROGEN.

But In PCOS, due to #INSULIN_RESISTANCE, the ovaries produce EXCESSIVE androgens, RATHER than the female hormones (such as Estrogen & Progesterone). ❌

These Excess #ANDROGENS are
responsible for CAUSING lots of body changes SUCH as : Facial Hair (beards) & No or IRREGULAR menstrual flow.

POLY-CYSTIC means ‘Many Cysts.’

In PCoS, Many CYSTS (Small Fluid-filled Sacs containing IMMATURE EGGS) develops inside the Ovaries.

The EGGS are NEVER fully grown to

The thing that makes me the most frustrated about #COVID19 (and has for many months) is the failure to learn lessons from previous outbreaks, particularly about the downstream effects of #pandemic response policy. A thread 1/

We need to start talking about the real problem with #AlbertaHealthcare and why @shandro and @jkenney plans will not work, will harm patients, and will cost the system more while delivering less. MDs leaving (and they are) is not the primary problem. 1/x
The biggest issue, is that we started with too few.
I have worked all over this province, and from day one there has been a massive shortage of MDs. Where I work (rural and remote AB) the problem is most apparent. Large % of people unable to get a FM doc. 2/x
Many others driving upwards of 4 hours to see one. Those that are lucky enough to have one? Wait lists are up to 7 MONTHS. The incredible rural docs serving these communities work tirelessly. Routinely > 100 hours a week. But they are human, and can only do so much. 3/x

1/ Q. How does #ContactTracing work again? How is that component of #TestTraceIsolate going so far?

A. Contact tracing is a tried and true #publichealth measure that’s been successfully used to contain other infectious diseases (see graphic). But there are challenges. Image
2/ When adapting this strategy for #COVID19:

First, because people are #contagious even BEFORE developing symptoms, tracing (identifying and notifying contacts) needs to happen quickly. But tracing takes time.
3/ There is also currently no #treatment to offer to individuals who test positive, so there is less personal incentive to cooperate. Instead, contacts are asked to #quarantine, not for their own benefit, but to reduce exposure to others.

Moving average of new cases of #COVID19 and new deaths in #India

#Gujarat has a way higher case fatality ratio than the national value, followed by #WestBengal and #MadhyaPradesh.

We need the CFR to fall to 0!


@aparanjape @c_aashish @MulaMutha @nebuer42 @oommen
In the next 12 states, #Telangana has the worst CFR followed by #Punjab - though the latter is lower than the national CFR.

#Uttarakhand has seen a sudden spike in deaths over the last few days, though luckily the base is low

Deaths due to #COVID19 in #India is yet to really slowdown, we need this to happen.

Early #detection, #quarantine, #treatment & #Masks4All is crucial for this.

Given that we have to live with this for a while, we need to reduce the #deaths to zero!

#Remdesivir begins distribution in the #USA today via #EUA.

I thought would write down some practical #tips based on my #qualitative anecdotal experience after personally treating close to 200 patients with #COVID19.

For quantitative results, wait for the papers¬—thread
“this juice works, doc!” When you hear similar expressions 1-2 days after starting #remdesivir multiple times, you start to wonder. Don't recall a similar proportion of patients smile after feeling so sick 1-2 days earlier with #COVID19. x/n? Wait for the papers.
Like #treatment for any severe infectious disease (meningitis, Gram-negative bacteremia, influenza pneumonia, etc), earlier is always better. #COVID19 is no different. #Remdesivir stops #SARS-CoV2 replication, but won’t heal the lung injury.

Q: What does a #pandemic offensive line look like?

A: The pandemic offensive line has 5 players: #SocialDistancing, #testing, #Isolation, #contact tracing, and #treatment. The goal is to find the virus, trap it, and prevent it from finding other hosts (people) and harming them.
#Social_Distancing makes it harder for the virus to find the next host, but doesn’t tell us where the virus lives. All alone, social distancing is really the defensive line.
#Testing flags the positive cases. With Covid-19, this is very important as many positive cases are asymptomatic allowing this creepy virus to hide and spread.

#Isolation of positive cases, many of whom you would never find without testing, prevents further spread of the virus.

Dermatologist are seeing more and more #skin symptoms related to #COVID19 . Acral lesions (i.e. hands and feet) are particularly frequent, specially in #children and #youngadult with no or few COVID symptoms. After seeing many cases, here is my vision: #Thread 👇
I think that these kind of lesions can be classified in four types. 1. Chilblain-like lesions, which are the most described, usually affecting many fingers / toes, either symmetrically or not. Pruritic and/or painful.
2. Insect-bite like lesions, that may also appear in the palm and the soles. Very #itchy and persistent (more than 2 weeks in some cases)

Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients

Thread ⬇️:

MDA teams took samples from 942 people who are quarantined; yesterday, more than 200 additional senior medics in MDA were trained to take samples.
Yesterday, MDA stations throughout the country held training sessions on how to treat patients, and take samples of those who are suspected of contracting the #Coronavirus.
They practiced taking samples from the patient while wearing full anti-contamination suits, and they have joined the 200 paramedics who have already started to carry out the testing last week.
