DOCTORS are investigating the strange case case of a woman who cries "crystal tears". Satenik Kazaryan, 22, from Armenia, weeps up to 50 jagged-edged tears each day, leaving her in agony. The jagged lumps make her life a "living hell", feeling like shards of glass piercing her eyelids. She said: "I was at the dentist, and it seemed dust got into my eyes. It hurt me."I went to the ophthalmologist, and a few crystals were taken out from my eyes. "Now my every day has turned into hell." At first medication seemed to help but now the crystal tears are coming more frequently, Satenik told Mir24.tv. She added: "All the doctors are in shock."They have not encountered such a disease and do not know how to treat it. "They have not even diagnosed it." All the doctors are in shock.

It can be the reason for our back pain, the root of our depression, and of course, the cause of our digestive issues. That's why testing the health of our gut and then healing our gut is absolutely essential for improving our mental and physical health. Why I Want to Help You Heal Your Gut I never thought much about my gut. I'm a psychologist and well-being expert, so I focus mostly on what you can do to boost well-being (take my well-being quiz). But this all changed when my gut completely gave out on me. In the blink of an eye, I started getting nauseous, bloated, and belchy anytime I ate anything. I quickly dropped 15 pounds, became exhausted, and developed intense anxiety. Had I thought more about my gut health, I could have seen the signs and prevented this nightmare. My gut had … [Read more...] about Heal The Gut: 17 Gut-Healing Strategies to Start Today

But for some patients, lowering A1C alone may not be enough. Approximately 30 million people in the United States have type 2 diabetes,1[*] but did you know that many of these people also have other serious health conditions associated with this disease?2-4 For example, one in three people with type 2 diabetes also has diabetic kidney disease,5,6 a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and do not function properly. Worse, many are unaware they have this condition.4 When your kidneys are damaged, they can't filter blood like they should, which can cause wastes to build up in your body and can increase the risk of reaching end-stage kidney disease. If that happens, dialysis or a kidney … [Read more...] about Type 2 diabetes and your kidneys: Are you doing enough?
BENGALURU: The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s Centre for Devices and Radiological Health has designated a medical invention by a Bengaluru-based scientist as a “breakthrough device” in the treatment of liver, pancreatic and breast cancers. Cytotron, developed by Rajah Vijay Kumar, aids in tissue engineering of cancer cells, altering how specific proteins are regulated to stop these cells from multiplying and spreading. “We are pleased to inform you that your device and proposed indication for use meet the criteria and have been granted designation as a breakthrough device,” states a communique from the FDA wing to Shreis Scalene Sciences, the company that had taken the device to the US. Cytotron is intended to cause degeneration of uncontrolled growth of tissues. “It is indicated for treating protein-linked, abnormally regenerating disorders such as neoplastic disease, and allowing extended progression free survival, with pain relief, … [Read more...] about Indian device for cancer fight gets USFDA’s ‘breakthrough’ tag
A material that can turn almost instantly into anything you want sounds like something from science fiction, but in fact it is already a reality — welcome to the world of stem cell treatment. Stem cells are the human body’s raw material for repairing itself. They can self-renew or turn into a specific type of cell, such as blood or muscle cells, and offer huge potential for treating a range of conditions, from worn-out knees to damaged hearts. They are not all the same: embryonic stem cells, sourced from human embryos, can become any type of cell in the body; adult stem cells, which are harvested from (your own or donor) bone marrow or fat tissue have more limited use; and a third group called induced pluripotent stem cells are produced by reprogramming normal adult stem cells so they act like embryonic cells. Ten years ago they were hyped as the golden hope for curing degenerative diseases. Then things appeared to go quiet, but Brendon Noble, a professor of regenerative … [Read more...] about Stem cell miracles transformed our lives: Patients reveal how they have reaped remarkable benefits of medical revolution that may be as significant as antibiotics or organ transplants
