Petrol RON97 Naik Harga 15 Sen Seliter Mulai 1 Disember 2010

11:38 PM 0
                  
Harga minyak petrol RON 97 mengalami kenaikan 15 sen kepada RM2.30 seliter mulai tengah malam ini. Bagaimanapun harga minyak RON 95 tidak mengalami perubahan. Laporan Reuters pula menyebut kenyataan rasmi mengenai perubahan harga ini dijangka dikeluarkan kemudian.
Ia kenaikan kali kedua sejak kerajaan membuat pelarasan subsidi dan memutuskan untuk mengapungkan harganya dari semasa ke semasa. Pada 1 November lalu, petrol gred RON 97 naik sebanyak 5 sen kepada RM2.15 seliter.
Bagaimanapun kenaikan harga itu tidak diumumkan manakala Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob berkata, ia bukan satu isu yang patut dimanipulasi pihak tertentu kerana harganya sudah diapungkan mengikut pasaran minyak dunia.
Ismail Sabri berkata, penetapan harga itu tidak lagi dilakukan oleh kerajaan dan ia tidak memerlukan sebarang pengumuman.
“Pembangkang kata kerajaan naikkan harga. Bukan kerajaan naikkan harga tetapi (kenaikan) berlaku mengikut harga pasaran. Ini berbeza dengan harga petrol RON 95 dan diesel yang masih diberi subsidi dan dikawal kerajaan,” katanya.
Kata beliau, rakyat juga tidak perlu rasa panik kerana lebih 90 peratus penggunaan minyak di negara ini menggunakan RON 95 selain menjangkakan tidak ada kenaikan sehingga penghujung tahun ini. - The Malaysian Insider

check this out......
The Organs of your body have their sensory touches at the bottom of your foot, if you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains as you can see the heart is on the left foot.

                                     
Typically they are shown as points and arrows to show which organ it connects to. 

It is indeed correct since the nerves connected to these organs terminate here. 

This is covered in great details in Acupressure studies or textbooks. 

God created our body so well that he thought of ! even this. He made us walk so that we will always be pressing these pressure points and thus keeping these organs activated at all times. 

So, keep walking...

PCOS and Metformin (Glucophage)

1:41 AM 0

PCOS and Metformin (Glucophage)

Metformin (brand name "Glucophage" or "Glucophage XR") is a drug that your doctor may have prescribed for you if you have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This drug offers both benefits and risks, summarized below. We also offer some suggestions if you are now taking it.

What Is Metformin (Glucophage)?


Metformin is a drug that has been used to help control blood glucose levels in people with Type 2 Diabetes. Although Glucophage has been used in Europe for over 25 years, it was not available in the US until 1995. The FDA has approved metformin only for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. Consequently, some physicians don't have much clinical experience with Glucophage, or are reluctant to use it unless the patient has diabetes.(1)
Metformin appears to work in three ways. First, it decreases the absorption of dietary carbohydrates through the intestines.
Second, it reduces the production of glucose by the liver.(2) The liver uses the raw material in your food to create a reserve supply of blood sugar. When your body experiences stress, the liver releases the reserve glucose to supply your brain and muscles with an immediate source of energy to cope with the stress. Glucophage suppresses the production of this reserve fuel.
Third, and perhaps most importantly, metformin increases the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin.(2) Insulin is the hormone that delivers glucose into your cells to be burned as fuel, or stored. Women with PCOS frequently have "insulin resistance", a condition where excessive amounts of insulin are required in order to get blood glucose moved into cells, where it belongs. Glucophage helps your body to transport glucose with relatively less insulin, thus lowering your insulin levels. Chronically high levels of either glucose or insulin in your blood contributes to obesity, heart disease, infertility, and certain cancers, as well as the development of diabetes.
Metformin is available in three different forms:
  1. Generic Metformin Hcl
  2. Glucophage (brand name)
  3. Glucophage XR (brand name)
Glucophage is available in 500 mg, 850 mg, or 1,000 mg tablets. The usual dose is 850-1,000 mg twice daily. The maximum safe dose is thought to be 850 mg three times daily. To minimize GI upset or diarrhea, it's recommended that you start with a low dosage and work your way up to the recommended dose.
Glucophage XR, an extended-release version of Glucophage, allows you to take only one dose a day. The slower release of long-acting Glucophage XR may help to reduce stomach upset that may occur with the regular Glucophage or metformin.
Glucophage is chemically identical to generic metformin, so you can save money by using generic metformin.

Benefits of Metformin (Glucophage)

LOWERING OF INSULIN, TESTOSTERONE, AND GLUCOSE LEVELS. Quite a number of studies indicate Glucophage reduces insulin, testosterone and glucose levels -- which reduces acne, hirsutism, abdominal obesity, amenorrhea and other symptoms. In one study conducted at Virginia Commonwealth University, 24 obese PCOS women were given metformin or placebo. The 11 women who received the metformin experienced a reduction in insulin levels, which slowed the activity of an enzyme in the ovaries that stimulates excess production of testosterone. As a result, testosterone levels also dropped.(3)
Glucophage appears to do the same for non-obese PCOS women, according to a study from the University of Medical Sciences in Poznan, Poland. Thirty nine PCOS women were given Glucophage for 12 weeks. They had improvements in insulin, testosterone, hirsutism and acne. (4)

PREVENTION OR DELAY OF ONSET OF DIABETES. Glucophage may help to prevent diabetes, according to a study at George Washington University.(5) In this study, 3,234 non-diabetics with elevated blood glucose were given metformin, placebo, or lifestyle recommendations. The incidence of diabetes in the metformin group was 31% less than in the placebo group.

RESTORATION OF NORMAL MENSTRUAL CYCLE. A number of studies have shown that menstruation can be restored in many women with PCOS. For example, in a study at Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati, 43 women who were not having periods took Glucophage, and 39 of them resumed normal menses.(6) In another study at Jewish Hospital, 11 teenage girls with PCOS were put on metformin and a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. Ten of the 11 girls resumed regular periods.(7)

IMPROVED CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. A study of 48 women with PCOS and infertility was conducted at the Baylor College of Medicine. They were first given metformin and 19 of them resumed menstruating and showed indications of ovulation. But 10 required clomiphene (a fertility drug) in addition to metformin in order to show evidence of ovulation. Twenty women of the 48 (42%) became pregnant. However, 7 of the 20 miscarried.(8)

REDUCED RISK OF MISCARRIAGE. Another aspect of PCOS-related infertility is the tendency for repeated miscarriages. A study from the Hospital de Clinicas Caracas in Venezuela looked at 65 women who received Glucophage during their pregnancies vs. 31 who did not. The early pregnancy (first trimester) loss rate in the metformin group was 8.8% as compared to a 41.9% loss in the untreated group. Of those women who previously had miscarried, 11.1% of the metformin group miscarried again, while 58.3% of the untreated group again miscarried. (9)

REDUCED RISK OF GESTATIONAL DIABETES. In another study at Jewish Hospital in Cincinatti, gestational diabetes risk was evaluated in two groups of PCOS women. The first group was 33 non-diabletic women who had conceived while taking metformin or took it during their pregnancy. This group was compared to a group of 39 PCOS women who did not take it. Only 3% of the metformin group developed gestational diabetes as compared to 31% in the non-metformin group.(10)

WEIGHT LOSS AND OTHER BENEFITS. Metformin may contribute to weight loss in some diabetics.(11) However, weight loss does not appear to be one of its primary benefits. Glucophage may also be of some value improving success with in vitro fertilization, lowering cholesterol, and improving energy.

Hurm..penantian..sure korang tertanya2 penantian ape ek..No lar...Ekcely aku ternanti2 la period aku ni ha.biasa every month die keluar...last aku punye peot 16 Sept..Tp until day 17 delay pon x dtg2 gaks..so clinic referkan aku ke Hospital Pantai since buat UPT test is show -ve on day 14..aku mmg dah agak dah cz aku agak bz ngan assignment, presentation and exam..agak stress kdg2 tuh...time tido pulak dh x nentu..

G clinic doc xkasi ubat kasi peot..die suh g jumpa gynea..hehe ..dua hari lpas g jumpa gynea...yeah i like jumpa this gynea..Dr Idora from Pantai Hospital...she's very soft spoken and cool je aku tgk..
Ni kali ke 3 ke 4 aku jumpa dia..

Masa jumpa tu..die tanya a few question la..then she asked me to baring la..utk scan...then die ckp xnampak la...(dlm hati aku..nak nampak canernye...dh aku mmg xpgnant...upt -ve)..tp die scan using vaginal scan pon x nampak..tp die show my rahim dh mmg menebal and akan peot bila2 masa sahaja..so she asked me la whether nak ubat utk turunkan peot..then i say YES..but she mcm xnak kasi becoz she nk suruh peot tu datang naturally..maybe itu lg bagus kot..

Doc kata aku xde cyst..cume mcm ade PCOS sbb ade bintik2 ape tah..hormon kot yang buat jd camtu..so aku saspek because of berat aku naik sangat kot tu yang jd camtu..then die pon agree..
Die ckp..the best way utk hilangkan benda tu or control benda tu is by diet and exercise..yeah...aku akan start jogging..

Alhamdulillah kelmarin aku dh start joggin and smalam pon jogging...rasa ya Allah beratnya badanku nk berlari2...bayangkan berat aku dua hari lpas 61.8..oh noooo,,tp xpe...aku akan tetap meneruskan usaha ni kalo ini yang give me high chance for getting pregnant..sob sob....
