Milk intolerance

Milk Intolerance refers to inability of an individual to digest lactose, a sugar present in milk. It cannot be classified as a disorder, but can be called a characteristic determined by genetic mark-up. The lactose intolerance can be attributed to the lack of lactase, an enzyme that plays a crucial role in the digestion of lactose and breaking it down into simpler sugars like galactose and glucose.

Polyps refer to the abnormal tissue growths, which project out of the mucous membrane. These can be attached to the mucous membrane with or without a stalk. Common sites where polyps are generally found include cervix, colon, nose, small intestine, stomach, sinuses, urinary bladder and uterus. While majority of polyps are harmless, some of them can be malignant as well.

The different types of polyps include nasal polyps, cervical polyps, colorectal


Urticaria, also known by the name hives, is an allergic reaction that results in skin rashes in the form of pale red and itchy bumps, often accompanied by a burning sensation. Rashes that persist for a period of six weeks or lesser are caused by allergic triggers, while those lasting even longer than that are caused by non-allergic triggers.

While the researchers are unsure about the exact cause of urticaria, they


Sinusitis refers to the inflammation or swelling of the sinuses tissues. Under normal circumstances air fills the sinuses, but when these get filled with liquid, germs such as bacteria, fungus and virus start growing there, causing infection. Sinusitis is a pretty common condition that affects millions across the globe every year.

Sinusitis can set in due to common cold, a deviated septum, or allergic rhinitis (swelling in the nose lining).

Adenoids are bunches of spongy tissue located at the back of the nasal cavity, just above the roof of the mouth. Their primary function is to prevent kids from falling sick, but when they get enlarged they can get really messy and disrupt normal breathing.

The functioning of adenoids is somewhat similar to that of tonsils. These help in filtering out harmful bacteria and viruses. The adenoids house cells that contain


Asthma, a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the airways, results in breathing problems that can make the lives of the patients terrible. A combination of environmental as well as genetic factors is understood to cause this problem. A spurt in asthma attacks overall has been witnessed in the past few years, which is being attributed to the changing environment and heritable factors.

The development and exacerbation of asthma is associated with

Chronic Bronchitis

The chronic inflammation of the bronchi in the lungs is termed as chronic bronchitis. It results in persistent cough accompanied by mucus and sputum (phlegm) for a period of three months for consecutive two years. Shortness of breath and wheezing are also reported in patients of the diseases.

The major cause of chronic bronchitis is tobacco smoking, which incidentally is the culprit behind a host of other diseases. Long term fume

Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis refers to the allergic inflammation of the nasal airways and is triggered by allergens such as animal dander, pollen or dust. Individuals having sensitive immune system are highly susceptible to allergic rhinitis. When plant pollen is the culprit behind triggering of allergy bout, it is called pollinosis and when caused by grass pollen, it is termed as hay fever.

Allergies are pretty common everywhere and a large portion of
