Let’s discuss a bit about Retinal Vein Occlusion here

People who don’t have hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, don’t smoke or have not had a head injury can also suffer from Retinal Vein Occlusion. There is nothing much to worry about especially if your doctor says so. Trust him on this. The tests that are required usually are:

  •  Blood tests.
  • Blood test for Lupus.
  • Thrombophilia.
  • Fluorescein angiography.

Retinal Vein Occlusion

Some people worry too much about this disorder but normally it is a usual eyesight issue but when they see it on the diagnosis paper written Retinal Vein Occlusion they do get horrified that oh no! What is going to happen next? RELAX. Nothing! You will be alright! Just be patient and keep pace with the treatment and you’ll be fine. Also, don’t be careless when it comes to eyes like what your doctor has prescribed do follow the instructions carefully on taking care of them. Instead of freaking out go to a good ophthalmologist or go for a herbal remedy because that helps a lot without side effects.

What research is Benign Essential Tremor done?

While doing a research on Benign Essential Tremor we came across this aeticle on NINDS web portal. The title ‘What Research is Being Done?’ Caught our attention. Here we are pasting the same aticle or let’s say the para that was of interest to us.

What Research is Being Done?

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, a unit of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s leading federal funder of research on disorders of the brain and nervous system. The NINDS sponsors research on tremor both at its facilities at the NIH and through grants to medical centers.

Benign Essential Tremor

Scientists at the NINDS are evaluating the effectiveness of 1-octanol, a substance similar to alcohol but less intoxicating, for treating essential tremor. Results of two previous NIH studies have shown this agent to be promising as a potential new treatment.

Scientists are also studying the effectiveness of botulinum toxin as a treatment for a variety of involuntary movement disorders, including essential tremor of the hand.
We will be back with some new research soon because we love to share what we find.
