Obesity Silently Damages Heart
By: Noor Saeed
specifically, this research work showed that people with obesity had raised levels of a heart enzyme known as troponin T, released by damaged heart muscle cells.
Overweight people without an obvious appearance of heart disease experience silent cardiac damage that speed up risk of heart failure in the future, with new research suggesting that obesity is an independent driver of heart muscle damage.
The findings challenge the commonly held belief that cardiovascular diseases seen in severely overweight people are driven by diabetes and high blood pressure, both well-known cardiac risk factors and both occurring frequently among the obese.
”Obesity is a well-known ‘accomplice’ in the development of heart disease, but our findings suggest it may be a solo player that drives heart failure independently of other risk factors that are often found among those with excess weight,”
Specifically, the research showed that obese people had elevated levels of a heart enzyme known as troponin T, released by injured heart muscle cells.
Increases in levels of this enzyme corresponded to an increase in people’s body mass index (BMI) – a measure of body fat based on a person’s weight-to-height ratio. Levels of the enzyme rose proportionally as BMI went up.
Troponin T is the gold standard for diagnosing acute or recent heart attacks and is widely used in emergency rooms to test patients with chest pain and other symptoms suggestive of a heart attack.
To seek best quick painless laser hair removal treatment is difficult now a days because of the desperate information available. Laser hair removal works best for people who have hair darker than their skin, and effect limited on the people of very light or fair skin. So before going to the treatment one should determine eligibility for the treatment. Laser hair removal is best for a wide range of needs, from small area upper lip hair removal for women, facial hair removal to full body back hair removal for men. Gone are the times when women used to look towards electrolysis for eyebrows or when men used to consider hair dye removal from wood.

Hair Transplant In Pakistan| Strip Harvesting Technique
By: Noor Saeed; Consultant/Patient Adviser
The strip harvesting technique contains removing the follicular units to be implanted as one group, form the patient donor site. By this method the follicular units are kept intact in their genetic form and avoid the individual hair follicles from being injured. Each follicular unit contains one to 5 hairs, the average being 3 hairs per follicular unit.
These follicular units are then dissected with great attention under microscopes equipment with fiber optics so as to avoid the application of heat to the follicles. These follicular units are well-kept in a special solution at the exact temperature until the doctor prepares the recipient sites on the patient, the grafts are then placed with great care in to the bald or thinning areas of the scalp, called the recipient area.

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a different technique that is from strip harvesting hair transplant, in FUE individual grafts are taken from the whole occipital region of the head. Hair restorative surgeon extracts each graft individually with a specialized device up to 1 mm in diameter, a process which does not create any surgical mark. After the hair transplant procedure only microscopic marks in the form of small red spots are left on the back (the donor area).However, within a weak period of time these small red marks healed and completely invisible.
FUE method is recommended for up to sixth degree hair loss as defined by the Norwood Scale. FUE is also highly suitable to post traumatic and post burn operations, as well as the Eyebrows restoration.
If a donor area has insufficient stock for strip hair transplant, than FUE method allows the extraction of grafts from different parts of the body i.e., Chest, Feet, and Back etc. Continue Reading →

Follicular Hair Transplant involves the removal of a strip of superficial hair bearing scalp layers from the back and sides of the head called donor area. Then the strip is dissected into fine follicular units with the help of stereo microscopes and then transplanted on to the bald area and recipient area.
The key benefit of this method is to cover broader areas as it gives scope for attaining more number of grafts in a single session. If the donor area permits, one can transplant even up to 5000 follicular units in a single session. Centers that use stereo microscopes and mantis microscopes and also incorporate four hook method of dissection open method will have lesser chance of graft wastage (transection). Continue Reading →
