Don't Let Cancer Get Under Your Skin. Skin Cancer Risk Factors:

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer
COMMON SKIN CANCERS: Several types of skin cancer exist, but the 3 most common are
1. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)
2. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
3. Melanoma. 

BCC is the most common form of skin cancer.  The lesions of BCC often look like open sores, red or pink patches, scars, or shiny bumps. The vast majority of BCCs are caused by a combination of intense and long-term exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Consistent sun exposure over time and intense exposure resulting in sunburn together damage the skin and increase the risk of BCC.

SCC is the second-most-common form of skin cancer. Cumulative, long-term sun exposure over a lifetime causes most SCCs. This includes daily, year-round exposure; intense exposure during warm months and exposure during a vacation in sunny areas.

Finally, Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Melanomas originate in melanocytes, pigment-producing cells in the epidermis. Melanomas often develop from moles. The acronym ABCDE is helpful for differentiating a melanoma from a normal mole: asymmetrical, border (uneven), color (various), diameter (larger), and evolving (changing).


Skin cancers are most often curable, but early detection and prompt treatment are imperative
Sun safety habits are core to the prevention of all skin cancers. These habits include avoiding sunburns, tans, and UV tanning beds; dressing to cover the skin; seeing a dermatologist for an annual skin exam; seeking shade between 10 am and 4 pm; self-examining the skin every month; and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with sun protection factor 15 or higher applied to the body 30 minutes prior to exposure and reapplied every 2 hours.

National Lipid Day- May 10

National Lipid Day-The purpose of the day is to bring awareness to Dyslipidemia., i.e. an abnormal amount of lipids in the bloodstream. This is often due to diet and lifestyle.  Dyslipidaemia is the major cause of cardiovascular disease.

Prolonged elevation of insulin levels can also lead to dyslipidemia. Likewise, increased levels of O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT) may cause dyslipidemia.

Dyslipidemia and is the major cause of Cardio Vascular Disease worldwide.  Preventative measures including health education, emphasis on the role of physical activity, diet, and timely visits to a doctor all aid in living a healthy life.

Strategies that can help include: 
  • Doing at least 30 to 45 minutes of moderate exercise 5 days a week (eg a brisk walk)
  • Modifying your diet, making sure you have a diet which contains:
  • Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as wholegrain cereals
  • A variety of protein sources including fish, lean meat and poultry, seafood, legumes, nuts and seeds
  • Reduced fat dairy sources such as low-fat milk, cheeses and yoghurts
  • Healthy fats such as avocados, olives and nuts.

Finally, another effective drug for kids and teens with type 2 diabetes

The drug, Liraglutide, in combination with an existing medication, Metformin, showed a robust effect in treating type 2 diabetes

Results of a recently completed clinical trial of a potential drug to treat Type 2 diabetes in children was announced at the Pediatric Academic Societies 2019. 

Currently, only two drugs, metformin, and insulin are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. This adult diabetes medication Liraglutide, in combination with Metformin was very effective in treating Type 2 diabetes and was well tolerated.

World Haemophilia Day - April 17

World Hemophilia Day is an international awareness day for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. It is held annually on April 17, date of the birthday of Frank Schnabel, founder of the World Federation of Hemophilia.

Hemophilia is a mostly inherited genetic disorder that impairs the body's ability to make blood clots, a process needed to stop bleeding. This results in people bleeding longer after an injury, easy bruising, and an increased risk of bleeding inside joints or the brain. Bleeding into a joint can result in permanent damage while bleeding in the brain can result in long term headaches, seizures, or a decreased level of consciousness.

There are two types of hemophilia, both with the same symptoms:
Haemophilia A - factor VIII (8) deficiency
Haemophilia B - factor IX (9) deficiency

Common symptoms:
  • Bruising easily
  • More painful swelling and bruising and bleeding for longer after an injury than you would expect •
  • Prolonged bleeding after medical or dental procedures or surgery
  • Internal bleeding into muscles, joints, and organs
