>Right nutrition = Strong immunity

>Right nutrition = Strong immunity

Make healthy food choices and eat right to help strengthen your body’s immune system. The main tasks of the body’s immune system are: to fight disease-causing germs (pathogens) like bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi, and to remove them from the body, and to fight disease-causing changes in the body, such as cancer cells. The way your body fights an infection depends on your overall health. Regular exercise, sufficient sleep, low stress levels and a nutrient rich food helps increase your body’s capability of fighting a disease.

Choose to eat right

Some compounds have properties that help make your immune system strong and help your fight diseases. Here is a list of must-haves in your daily diet:

  • Vitamins, Minerals, and Antioxidants: Studies have shown that fruits and vegetables provide nutrients—like beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E—that can boost immune function. Many of the vegetables, fruits, and other plant-based foods are also rich in antioxidants, they help reduce oxidative stress.
  • Beta-Carotene: Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that can reduce inflammation and boost immune function by increasing disease-fighting cells in the body. Excellent sources include sweet potatoes, carrots, and green leafy vegetables.
  • Vitamin C and E: Vitamins C and E are antioxidants that help to destroy free radicals and support the body’s natural immune response. Sources of vitamin C include red peppers, oranges, strawberries, broccoli, mangoes, lemons, and other fruits and vegetables. Vitamin E sources include nuts, seeds, spinach.
  • Vitamin D: Research shows vitamin D supplementation may reduce the risk for viral infections, including respiratory tract infections, by reducing the production of pro-inflammatory compounds in the body. Food sources of vitamin D include fortified cereals and milk and dairy products.
  • Zinc: Zinc is a mineral that can help boost white blood cells, which defend against invaders. Sources include nuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, beans, and lentils.

Healthy eating tips

  • You may be eating the most nutritious diet but some dietary mistakes can weaken your immune system and have adverse effects on your health. Here are a few guidelines to follow to help preserve your immunity:

    • Avoid eating processed foods
    • Reduce sugar intake
    • Choose plant-based, whole foods
    • Say “No” to alcohol
न्युमोनिया हा फुफ्फुसांमध्ये किती प्रमाणात वाढला आहे हे समजण्यासाठी HRCT मध्ये Score दिला जातो.

न्युमोनिया हा फुफ्फुसांमध्ये किती प्रमाणात वाढला आहे हे समजण्यासाठी HRCT मध्ये Score दिला जातो.

न्युमोनिया हा फुफ्फुसांमध्ये किती प्रमाणात वाढला आहे हे समजण्यासाठी HRCT मध्ये Score दिला जातो.

 हा स्कोर 0 ते 25 या दरम्यान असतो. 0 स्कोर याचा अर्थ फुफ्फुसांत न्यूमोनिया अजिबात पसरलेला नाही असा होतो तर 25 स्कोर म्हणजे न्यूमोनिया फुफ्फुसांत सर्वत्र पसरलेला आहे असा अर्थ होतो.

 25 पैकी स्कोर असताना

 कमी प्रमाणातील न्यूमोनिया — 12 पेक्षा कमी स्कोर असणे.

 मध्यम न्यूमोनिया — 12 ते 18 स्कोर असणे.

तीव्र स्वरुपाचा न्यूमोनिया — 18 पेक्षा जास्त स्कोर असणे.

फुफ्फुसे किती टक्के बाधित झाली आहेत हे कळण्यासाठी HRCT Score ला ४ ने गुणले जाते. पण ते दरवेळी बरोबर येईलच असे सांगता येत नाही.

 बऱ्याच रिपोर्ट मध्ये HRCT Score हा ४० पैकी दिला जातो त्यावेळी वरील दोन्ही नियम लागू पडत नाहीत.
