Reward center of the brain is the one that controls the ability of the body to feel the pleasure. When this part of the brain stimulates more, it makes one repeat the behavior again and again.

This is what happens when a person takes drugs. The drugs make the reward center of the brain to stimulate more and it tempts the person to take more drugs again and again. When a person takes the drug for the first time, the level of dopamine released increases and the person gets immense pleasure from it. When this level of dopamine is not achieved in other activities in which he enjoyed earlier, the person tends to take the drug again and again.

How Is Liver Cirrhosis One Of The Major Causes Of Gastrointestinal Bleeding

by , on

Liver Cirrhosis is a disease of the liver when its function is negatively affected due to long-term damage developed slowly over a considerable time of several months or years. The disease may be asymptomatic in the early stages but may show symptoms in the later stages like over-tiredness, development of yellow skin, swelling in the lower legs, fluid buildup and its spontaneous infection in the abdomen, appearance of spider-like blood vessels on the skin etc. The major causes of cirrhosis are overuse of alcohol, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

When the liver is damaged beyond repair, the liver tissue can be replaced with scar tissue. In extreme cases, even replacement may not help in the prophylaxis and can prove to be fatal.

Hepatic portal hypertension and Liver cirrhosis

A major complication of liver cirrhosis is portal hypertension characterized by increased resistance to blood flow and subsequent higher pressure in the portal venous system. Portal hypertension is the increased high blood pressure (greater than 6mmHg) in the hepatic portal system which constitutes the portal vein and its branches draining from intestines to the liver. Its symptoms are:

  • Increased spleen size (Splenomegaly)
  • Esophageal varices or extremely dilated and swollen veins
  • Abdominal pain and swollen veins on the anterior side of its wall
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Ascites of free fluid in the peritoneal cavity
  • Anorectal varices

Secondary effects such as gastrointenstinal bleeding can be caused by hypertension due to the formation and rupture of esophageal varices by a process called portocaval anastomosis. The high blood pressure redirects the blood flow from the hepatic portal system into the gastrointestinal areas with lower venous pressure. This makes the small veins in these areas extremely dilated, thin-walled (varicosities) and prone to rupture. Patients diagnosed with varices should be given treatments like non-selective beta-blockers, and nitrates after confirmation with endoscopy.

Facts You Should Not Ignore When You Take Mass Gainer Supplements

May 3, 2017

Weight gainers have gained a lot of popularity these days. For bodybuilders, the main issue is to build their body by building the muscles to look macho and fit but not fat. The problem with relying fully on a regular diet is that sometimes if you don’t watch the calorie intake, you might be left with weight gain and not muscle gain. If you worry about the calories and cut down your diet, you might miss out all the important nutrients and this would leave you feeling drained. Mass gainer supplements, on the other hand, would meet the calorie needs of your body and they also come with most of the essential nutrients in the right proportions.

But there are so many mass gainers and it can be so confusing to take your pick. Reading the weight gainer reviews on FitBody can help you get a clearer picture. When you are taking weight gainers, however, here are some facts you should not ignore:

  • Do not take beyond prescribed quantity of the mass gainer. Your trainer should be able to help you work out the daily dosages of the mass gainer based on your fitness goals and your current body status. Going beyond the prescribed limits can do more harm than good. You don’t need an overdose of macronutrients every day.
  • Do not skip exercises ever. Unless you are seriously underweight and unless you are advised to consume some of these supplements by your physician for weight management, you should never take these without having an exercise routine in place. Muscle building with the help of the weight gainers can only happen if you are backing up the supplement with the right exercises. You get extra calories and if you don’t burn them and utilize them the right way, it again would leave you with all the negative effects.
