Even though stomach flu or acute gastroenteritis is commonly benign and self-limited and subsides within a few days; it can knock you out for a few days and leave you extremely tired and weak. With your intestines attacked by the flu, one often manifests symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and even mild fever.
Irrespective of stress being a short-term frustration or arising from a major catastrophic event in life like death, divorce, etc., it can influence the body to a surprising level. Let’s see some of the effects stress can have on the body.
Overproduction of cortisol hormone increases your sugar and fat cravings and leads you to have a larger portion of food. This phenomenon is called ‘emotional eating’. This also affects the metabolism and digestion of food. Consequently, one finds a severe weight gain and thus opens the door to various other diseases.
For over half a century, the Department of Radiology and diagnostic imaging has been providing an unparallel service to our patients. Simultaneously, it has been training students and future radiologists for the next generation as well as performing some incredible research on the field.
An undisputed leader in the field, the Ophthalmology Department boasts of successfully treating over 30, 000 patients every year. Trust our board certified and fellow trained ophthalmologists to offer you a complete range of comprehensive, sub-specialty, surgical as well as non-invasive treatments for any of the eye area like the retina, vitreous humor, cornea, glaucoma, strabismus corrections and oculoplastics.
The clinic stands apart in going a step ahead and working with the patient’s health care team to come up with a comprehensive treatment plan. This is because of the insight that many eye conditions stem from other medical conditions like diabetes, thyroid disorder, immune systems, etc. Resources are also offered to complement the local physician’s expertise.
