Eating Disorders Treatment By MD24 House Call


Eating disorders are psychological illnesses defined by abnormal eating habits that may involve either insufficient or excessive food intake to the detriment of an individual’s physical and mental health. A person with an eating disorder may have started out just eating smaller or larger amounts of food, but at some point, the urge to eat less or more spiraled out of control. Severe distress or concern about body weight or shape may also signal an eating disorder. The exact cause of eating disorders is unknown. Possible causes of eating disorders include: biology, psychological and emotional health, society.

Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.
- When you have anorexia nervosa, you're obsessed with being thin, sometimes to the point of deadly self-starvation.
- When you have bulimia, you have episodes of bingeing and purging. During these episodes, you typically eat a large amount of food in a short duration and then try to rid yourself of the extra calories through vomiting or excessive exercise. You may be at a normal weight or even a bit overweight.
- When you have binge-eating disorder, you regularly eat excessive amounts of food (binge), but do not try to compensate for this behavior with exercise or purging as someone with bulimia or anorexia might. You may eat when you are  not hungry and continue eating even long after you are  uncomfortably full. After a binge, you may feel guilty or ashamed, which can trigger a new round of bingeing. You may be a normal weight, overweight or obese.


Eating disorders are real, treatable medical illnesses. They frequently coexist with other illnesses such as depression, substance abuse, or anxiety disorders. Some symptoms can become life-threatening if a person does not receive treatment. Complications may include: Death; Heart problems; Multiple organ failure; Depression; Suicidal thoughts or behavior; Absence of menstruation (amenorrhea); Bone loss; Stunted growth; Digestive problems; Kidney damage; Severe tooth decay; High or low blood pressure. Most people with eating disorders are females, but males can also have eating disorders.

Because of its powerful pull, an eating disorder can be difficult to manage or overcome by yourself. Eating disorders can virtually take over your life. You may think about food all the time, spend hours agonizing over what to eat and exercise to exhaustion. You may feel ashamed, sad, hopeless, drained, irritable and anxious. You may also have a host of physical problems because of your eating disorder, such as irregular heartbeats, fatigue, and bowel or menstrual troubles. If you are experiencing any of these problems, or if you think you may have an eating disorder, seek medical help!

Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Treatment By MD24 House Call

Many people think of rowdy kids who cannot sit still when they think of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). But many adults continue to struggle with symptoms of ADHD. Many adults with ADHD do not realize that many of the problems they face, including staying organized or being on time, are symptoms of adult ADHD.

While experts do not know for sure what causes ADHD, they think genes may play an important part. Environmental issues, such as exposure to cigarettes, alcohol, or other toxins while in the womb, may also play a role. Unlike other psychiatric disorders, including anxiety and depression, ADHD does not begin in adulthood. Symptoms must have been present since childhood for a diagnosis of adult ADHD to be made.

The symptoms include forgetfulness and excessive daydreaming, as well as an inability to sit still, or constant fidgeting with objects. Adults with ADHD often have difficulty staying focused and attending to daily, mundane tasks. For example, you may be easily distracted by irrelevant sights and sounds, quickly bounce from one activity to another, or become bored quickly. Symptoms in this category are sometimes overlooked because they are less outwardly disruptive than the ADHD symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity - but they can be every bit as troublesome. When you have adult ADHD, life often seems chaotic and out of control. Staying organized and on top of things can be extremely challenging - as is sorting out what information is relevant for the task at hand, prioritizing the things you need to do, keeping track of tasks and responsibilities, and managing your time.

Hyperactivity in adults with ADHD can look the same as it does in kids. You may be highly energetic and perpetually “on the go” as if driven by a motor. For many people with ADHD, the symptoms of hyperactivity become more subtle and internal as they grow older. Common symptoms of hyperactivity in adults include: feelings of inner restlessness, agitation, tendency to take risks, getting bored easily, racing thoughts, trouble sitting still; constant fidgeting, craving for excitement, talking excessively, or doing a million things at once.

Some potential warning signs of adult ADHD: trouble getting organized, reckless driving and traffic accidents, marital trouble, poor listening skills, restlessness, trouble relaxing, trouble starting a task, lateness, angry outbursts. If you are just discovering you have adult ADHD, chances are you’ve suffered over the years for the unrecognized problem.

If the symptoms of ADHD are still getting in the way of your life, despite self-help efforts to manage them, it may be time to seek outside support. Adults with ADHD can benefit from a number of treatments, including behavioral coaching, individual therapy, self-help groups, vocational counseling, educational assistance, and medication.

Treatment for adults with attention deficit disorder, like treatment for kids, should involve a team of professionals, along with the person’s family members and spouse.

Please do not hesitate to call us to be served directly at your home by highly-trained Physicians with the most effective treatment to be healed from ADHD, and especially no additional fee for our services at home.

Treatment and Care Alzheimer's disease by MD24 House Call

Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases.

Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging, although the greatest known risk factor for Alzheimer's is increasing age. Of Americans aged 65 and over, 1 in 8 has Alzheimer’s, and nearly half of people aged 85 and older have the disease. But Alzheimer's disease is not just a disease of old age. Up to 5 percent of people with the disease have early onset Alzheimer's (also known as younger-onset), which often appears when someone is in their 40s or 50s. Alzheimer's disease worsens over time.


Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years. In its early stages, memory loss is mild, but with late-stage Alzheimer's, individuals lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Those with Alzheimer's live an average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others, but survival can range from four to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions. Alzheimer's disease has no current cure, but treatments for symptoms are available and research continues. Although current Alzheimer's treatments cannot stop Alzheimer's from progressing, they can temporarily slow the worsening of dementia symptoms and improve quality of life for those with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia, you are not alone. MD24 House Call Neuropsychology Service is the trusted resource for reliable information, education, referral and support to people affected by the disease.

Atrial Fibrillation Treatment and Monitor by MD24 House Call

It is advisable that you should always listen to your heartbeat. When your heart beats with an irregular pattern, too quickly or too slowly, you are experiencing an arrhythmia. If your heart beats faster than normal, it is called tachycardia; while the state of beating too slowly is called bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is Atrial Fibrillation, which causes an irregular and fast heart beat.

Causes of Atrial Fibrillation include the following:
  • High blood pressure is the most common cause. High blood pressure puts a strain on the heart muscle.
  • Atrial Fibrillation is a common complication of various heart conditions. For example, ischaemic heart disease, heart valve problems, pericardial disease, etc. This is the condition that causes chest pains (angina) and heart attacks and is common in older people.
Other conditions and situations that may trigger Atrial Fibrillation to develop include: an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism), pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, obesity, lung cancer, drinking a lot of alcohol, drinking a lot of caffeine (tea, coffee, etc).

In about 1 in 10 cases of Atrial Fibrillation there is no apparent cause. The heart is otherwise fine and there are no other diseases to account for it. This is called lone Atrial Fibrillation. Some people with Atrial Fibrillation have no symptoms and are unaware of their condition until it is discovered during a physical examination. Those who do have Atrial Fibrillation symptoms may experience signs and symptoms such as:
  • Palpitations, which are sensations of a racing
  • Uncomfortable, irregular heartbeat or a flip-flopping in your chest
  • Weakness, reduced ability to exercise, fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Shortness of breath, chest pain
Atrial Fibrillation can lead to the complications: stroke and heart failure. Therefore, diagnosis should be made early and treatment is necessary. Treatment may involve: medication to prevent a stroke, to control the heart rate or rhythm; cardioversion, where the heart is given a controlled electric shock to restore normal rhythm; catheter ablation, to prevent atrial fibrillation from occurring; having a pacemaker fitted to help your heart beat regularly.

Holter Monitor And Event Monitor by MD24 House Call

Holter and event monitors are similar to an EKG (electrocardiogram). An EKG is a simple test that detects and records the heart's electrical activity. It is a common test for diagnosing heart rhythm problems. A standard EKG will not detect heart rhythm problems that do not happen during the test. For this reason, your doctor may give you a Holter or event monitor. These monitors are portable. You can wear one while doing your normal daily activities. This increases the chance of recording symptoms that only occur once in a while. This allows the monitor to record your heart for a longer time than an EKG.


Holter monitors sometimes are called continuous EKGs (electrocardiograms). This is because Holter monitors record your heart rhythm continuously for 24 to 48 hours. A Holter monitor is about the size of a large deck of cards. You can clip it to a belt or carry it in a pocket. Wires connect the device to sensors (called electrodes) that are stuck to your chest using sticky patches. These sensors detect your heart's electrical signals, and the monitor records your heart rhythm.

Event monitors are similar to Holter monitors. Most Event monitors have wires that connect the device to sensors. The sensors are stuck to your chest using sticky patches.
Unlike Holter monitors, event monitors do not continuously record your heart's electrical activity. They only record during symptoms. For many Event monitors, you need to start the device when you feel symptoms. Some Event monitors start automatically if they detect abnormal heart rhythms. Different types of Event monitors work in slightly different ways. Your doctor will explain how to use the monitor before you start wearing it.
                 
The following are some reasons a Holter monitor recording or event monitor recording may be requested, but not limited to:
  • To evaluate chest pain not reproduced with exercise testing
  • To evaluate other signs and symptoms that may be heart-related, such as fatigue, shortness of
  • breath, dizziness, or fainting
  • To identify irregular heartbeats or palpitations
If you have any sign above, and want to monitor your heart, call us today. Do not hesitate because it may be the first sign of serious illness (especially in the elderly), which early diagnosis will help better treatment. Just one call, you will receive the care and advisory of enthusiastic doctor at your house. With full equipment EKG, Holter and event monitors, CXR, etc., we bring the best Cardiac Monitoring at Home service. Medicare and most insurance carriers cover the cost of this service.
