FOOD PACKAGING

VivieCouture | 2022-07-2006

Health
Hello T-Fans, Welcome to another post on Food Recipe and Cooking. Here, we have a few discuss on how best to package your foods. Improper food package, often times, leads to food wastage and most people prefer not to eat a "not well-dished" food while some pours almost half of the dish while the eat the rest. It is hygienic to eat well covered, packaged, treated foods and liquids at all times. This is applicable at parties. If not well treated, it's going to be more of food wastage than food intake. Some of the kitchen utensils often used at events for proper molding of their dishes (rice majorly) are: •Moulding spoon These types of spoons are often with the objective of neatly serving the food and prevention of food wastage as well. •Preservative plates (often known as take-away). We can relate with this in most of the parties. You can always get one. Thanks for reading T-Fans. Trust you had a nice one Read all >>

The surge in inflation rate is following the rally in crude oil prices, amidst the face-off between Russia and Ukraine. The rising cost of energy around the world has translated to a significant uptrend being witnessed in most economies as prices of goods and services have reached unprecedented levels. The International Monetary Fund has also projected that the present inflationary pressure will continue until 20 23, leading to further concerns over a consequent global economic recession. In the same vein, the IMF increased the inflation projection for advanced economies to 5.7% and 8.7% for emerging market and developing economies. SOURCE Read all >>

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE: CAUSES, SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENT

TSPOT HEALTH NG | 2022-07-1819

Health
Hello T-Fans, High blood pressure is a common condition in which the force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as Heart disease. Blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure. You can have High blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including Heart attack and Stroke. High blood pressure generally develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with your doctor to control it. SYMPTOMS Somepeople with high blood pressure have no signs or symptoms, even if blood pressure readings reach dangerously high levels. Although a few people with early-stage high blood pressure may have dull headaches, dizzy spells or a few more nosebleeds than normal, these signs and symptoms usually don't occur until high blood pressure has reached a severe or life-threatening stage. CAUSES There are two types of high blood pressure: Primary (essential) hypertension For most adults, there's no identifiable cause of high blood pressure. This type of high blood pressure, called essential hypertension or primary hypertension, tends to develop gradually over many years. Secondary Hypertension Some people have high blood pressure caused by an underlying condition. This type of high blood pressure, called Secondary hypertension, tends to appear suddenly and cause higher blood pressure than does primary hypertension. Various conditions and medications can lead to Secondary hypertension, including: Kidney problems Adrenal gland Tumors Thyroid problems Certain defects in blood vessels you're born with (congenital) Certain medications, such as birth control pills, cold remedies, decongestants, over-the-counter pain relievers and some prescription drugs Illegal drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines Alcohol abuse or chronic alcohol use Obstructive Sleep apnea RISK FACTORS High blood pressure has many risk factors, including: Age. The risk of high blood pressure increases as you age. Through early middle age, or about age 45, high blood pressure is more common in men. Women are more likely to develop high blood pressure after age 65. Race. High blood pressure is particularly common among blacks, often developing at an earlier age than it does in whites. Serious complications, such as Stroke, Heart attack, and kidney failure, also are more common in blacks. Family history. High blood pressure tends to run in families. Being overweight or obese. The more you weigh the more blood you need to supply oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. As the volume of blood circulated through your blood vessels increases, so does the pressure on your artery walls. Not being physically active: People who are inactive tend to have higher heart rates. The higher your heart rate, the harder your heart must work with each contraction and the stronger the force on your arteries. Lack of physical activity also increases the risk of being overweight. Using tobacco: Not only does smoking or chewing tobacco immediately raise your blood pressure temporarily, but the chemicals in tobacco can damage the lining of your artery walls. This can cause your arteries to narrow, increasing your blood pressure. Secondhand smoke also can increase your blood pressure. Too much salt (sodium) in your diet:Too much sodium in your diet can cause your body to retain Fluid, which increases blood pressure. Too little potassium in your diet:Potassium helps balance the amount of sodium in your cells. If you don't get enough potassium in your diet or retain enough potassium, you may accumulate too much sodium in your blood. Too little vitamin D in your diet: It's uncertain if having too little vitamin D in your diet can lead to high blood pressure. Vitamin D may affect an enzyme produced by your kidneys that affects your blood pressure. Drinking too much alcohol: Over time, heavy drinking can damage your heart. Having more than two drinks a day for men and more than one drink a day for women may affect your blood pressure.If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women of all ages and men older than age 65, and up to two drinks a day for men age 65 and younger. Stress. High levels of stress can lead to a temporary increase in blood pressure. If you try to relax by eating more, using tobacco or drinking alcohol, you may only increase problems with high blood pressure. Certain chronic conditions: Certain chronic conditions also may increase your risk of high blood pressure, such as kidney disease and Sleep apnea. Sometimes pregnancy contributes to high blood pressure, as well. Although high blood pressure is most common in adults, children may be at risk, too. For some children, high blood pressure is caused by problems with the kidneys or heart. But for a growing number of kids, poor lifestyle habits, such as an unhealthy diet, Obesity and lack of exercise, contribute to high blood pressure. COMPLICATIONS The excessive pressure on your artery walls caused by high blood pressure can damage your blood vessels, as well as organs in your body. The higher your blood pressure and the longer it goes uncontrolled, the greater the damage. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to: Heart attack or Stroke. High blood pressure can cause hardening and thickening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), which can lead to a Heart attack, Stroke or other complications. Aneurysm. Increased blood pressure can cause your blood vessels to weaken and bulge, forming an aneurysm. If an aneurysm ruptures, it can be life-threatening. Heart failure. To pump blood against the higher pressure in your vessels, your heart muscle thickens. Eventually, the thickened muscle may have a hard time pumping enough blood to meet your body's needs, which can lead to Heart failure. Weakened and narrowed blood vessels in your kidneys. This can prevent these organs from functioning normally. Thickened, narrowed or torn blood vessels in the eyes. This can result in vision loss. Metabolic syndrome: This syndrome is a cluster of disorders of your body's metabolism, including increased waist circumference; high triglycerides; low high-density lipoprotein (HDL); or "good," cholesterol; high blood pressure; and high insulin levels. If you have high blood pressure, you're more likely to have other components of Metabolic syndrome. The more components you have, the greater your risk of developing Diabetes, Heart disease or Stroke. Trouble with memory or understanding:Uncontrolled high blood pressure may also affect your ability to think, remember and learn. Trouble with memory or understanding concepts is more common in people with high blood pressure. TESTS AND DIAGNOSIS Blood pressure measurements fall into four general categories: Normal blood pressure. Your blood pressure is normal if it's below 120/80 mm Hg. However, some doctors recommend 115/75 mm Hg as a better goal. Once blood pressure rises above 115/75 mm Hg, the risk of cardiovascular disease begins to increase. Prehypertension. Prehypertension is a systolic pressure ranging from 120 to 139 mm Hg or a diastolic pressure ranging from 80 to 89 mm Hg. Prehypertension tends to get worse over time. Stage 1 hypertension. Stage 1 hypertension is a systolic pressure ranging from 140 to 159 mm Hg or a diastolic pressure ranging from 90 to 99 mm Hg. Stage 2 hypertension. More severe hypertension, stage 2 hypertension is a systolic pressure of 160 mm Hg or higher or a diastolic pressure of 100 mm Hg or higher. Both numbers in a blood pressure reading are important. But after age 60, the systolic reading is even more significant. Isolated systolic hypertension — when diastolic pressure is normal but systolic pressure is high — is a common type of high blood pressure among people older than 60. Your doctor will likely take two to three blood pressure readings each at three or more separate appointments before diagnosing you with high blood pressure. This is because blood pressure normally varies throughout the day, and sometimes specifically during visits to the doctor, a condition called white-coat hypertension. TREATMENTS AND DRUGS *Although 120/80 mm Hg or lower is the ideal blood pressure goal, doctors are unsure if you need treatment (medications) to reach that level. Less than150/90 mm Hg If you're a healthy adult age 60 or older Less than140/90 mm Hg If you're a healthy adult younger than age 60 Less than140/90 mm Hg If you have Chronic kidney disease, Diabetes or Coronary artery disease or are at high risk of Coronary artery disease If you're age 60 or older, and use of medications results in lower systolic blood pressure (such as less than 140 mm Hg), your medications won't need to be changed unless they cause negative effects to your health or quality of life. Also, people older than 60 commonly have isolated systolic hypertension — when diastolic pressure is normal but systolic pressure is high. Thiazide diuretics. Diuretics, sometimes called water pills, are medications that act on your kidneys to help your body eliminate sodium and water, reducing blood volume. Beta blockers. These medications reduce the workload on your heart and open your blood vessels, causing your heart to beat slower and with less force. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. These medications help relax blood vessels by blocking the formation of a natural chemical that narrows blood vessels. People with Chronic kidney disease may benefit from ACE inhibitors as one of their medications. Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). These medications help relax blood vessels by blocking the action, not the formation, of a natural chemical that narrows blood vessels. People with Chronic kidney disease may benefit from ARBs as one of their medications. Calcium channel blockers. These medications help relax the muscles of your blood vessels. Some slow your heart rate. Calcium channel blockers may work better for older people and blacks than do ACE inhibitors alone. Renin inhibitors. Aliskiren (Tekturna) slows down the production of renin, an enzyme produced by your kidneys that starts a chain of chemical steps that increases blood pressure. Alpha blockers. These medications reduce nerve impulses to blood vessels, reducing the effects of natural chemicals that narrow blood vessels. Vasodilators. These medications work directly on the muscles in the walls of your arteries, preventing the muscles from tightening and your arteries from narrowing. Aldosterone antagonists. Examples are spironolactone (Aldactone) and eplerenone (Inspra). These drugs block the effect of a natural chemical that can lead to salt and Fluid retention. Your doctor may recommend several lifestyle changes, including: Eating a healthier diet with less salt (the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, or DASH, diet) Exercising regularly Quitting smoking Losing weight Resistant hypertension is blood pressure that's resistant to treatment. People who have controlled high blood pressure but are taking four different types of medications at the same time to achieve that control also are considered to have resistant hypertension. Having resistant hypertension doesn't mean your blood pressure will never get lower. In fact, if you and your doctor can identify what's behind your persistently high blood pressure, there's a good chance you can meet your goal with the help of treatment that's more effective. LIFESTYLE AND HOME REMEDIES Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Here's what you can do: Eat healthy foods. Try the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy foods. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. A lower sodium level — 1,500 milligrams (mg) a day — is appropriate for people 51 years of age or older, and individuals of any age who are African-American or who have hypertension, Diabetes or Chronic kidney disease. Otherwise healthy people can aim for 2,300 mg a day or less. While you can reduce the amount of salt you eat by putting down the saltshaker, you should also pay attention to the amount of salt that's in the processed foods you eat, such as canned soups or frozen dinners. Maintain a healthy weight. If you're overweight, losing even 5 pounds (2.3 kilograms) can lower your blood pressure. Increase physical activity. Regular physical activity can help lower your blood pressure and keep your weight under control. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women of all ages and men older than age 65, and up to two drinks a day for men age 65 and younger. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. If you smoke, ask your doctor to help you quit. Manage stress. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation and deep breathing. Getting plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Home blood pressure monitoring can help you keep closer tabs on your blood pressure, show if medication is working, and even alert you and your doctor to potential complications. If your blood pressure is under control, you may be able to make fewer visits to your doctor if you monitor your blood pressure at home. Practice relaxation or slow, deep breathing. Practice taking deep, slow breaths to help relax. There are some devices available that can help guide your breathing for relaxation. However, it's questionable whether these devices have a significant effect on lowering your blood pressure. ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE Although diet and exercise are the most appropriate tactics to lower your blood pressure, some supplements also may help lower it. However, more research is needed. These include: Fiber, such as blond psyllium and wheat bran Minerals, such as calcium and potassium Supplements that increase nitric oxide or widen blood vessels (vasodilators), such as cocoa, Coenzyme Q10 or garlic Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish, fish oil supplements or flaxseed Probiotics, found in fermented dairy products such as cultured yogurt, buttermilk, acidophilus milk, cultured sour cream and cheese While it's best to include these supplements in your diet as foods, you can also take supplement pills or capsules. Probiotic supplements, however, have been studied in a limited number of trials, and conclusions haven't been made regarding their potential effect on blood pressure. Talk to your doctor before adding any of these supplements to your blood pressure treatment. Some supplements can interact with medications, causing harmful side effects, such as an increased bleeding risk that could be fatal. You can also practice relaxation techniques, such as yoga or deep breathing, to help you relax and reduce your stress level. These practices may temporarily reduce your blood pressure. Happy New Week!!! Read all >>

MAN CRUSH MONDAY: DJ Y.K

PresidentSan | 2022-07-18010

News
HELLO T-FANS You know that name that comes to mind when you hear the beat, poikilitechnic... Today we are shining the light on another prodigy in the Nigeria entertainment industry A disc jockey master A music producer Originator of many hot beats Influencer to the core A symbol of creativity Olayinka Lawal DJ YK Okay Warisi... Talk of a young man who could turn asound as simple as the bleating of a goat into something you want to twerk, dance and throw off your head to. Olayinka (DJ YK) is a creative disk jockey who has demonstrated an exceptional skill in making great music and in treating Nigerians to lots of lovely, fun and superb beats. Some people call him the beats master, the shaku shaku beats master and the beats lord. If you've been itching to know where this young wiz is from, and how he got the metonym DJ YK, then read on. Who really is DJ YK ? Olayinka Lawal (DJ YK) was born on the 27th of August, 1993 at Sango Ijoko in Ogun state. Olayinka has been in love with music and drums right from a very early age. He enjoys as the drums stick violently pound on the drum, and the drum responding not in ugly screams, but in lovely rythmic sounds, romantic to the ears. Even though his mother hated music and anything DJs, as a result of the several labels attributed to both. Olayinka was bent on pursuing his dream of being a disc jockey, making and mixing sounds out of electronic equipments, sparing the drum the pestering fingers of the drum stick. Just like every other extraordinare, Olayinka took the DJ profession to the next level, refusing to be limited to the roadside or streets ceremonies. He decided to impact a larger audience through the internet, spreading the feeling of happiness through special beats and by hopping on challenges. Does he have Yakub or Yekeen in his name, why DJ YK? DJ YK revealed how he got his brand name, in an interview with Gist loaded.

Marketing Do’s and Don’t HELLO TFANS, Today, we would be discussing about marketing and what is acceptable and what isn’t when involved in marketing. Before we begin, what is the term ‘Marketing’? According to Investopedia, Marketing refers to activities a company undertakes to promote the buying or selling of a product or service. Marketing includes advertising, selling, and delivering products to consumers or other businesses. Some marketing is done by affiliates unbehalf of the company. When it comes to marketing, there are several misconceptions, some of which we would be discussing whilst listing the Do’s and Don’ts. DO’s1.Time: With marketing, most especially physical marketing, your time is your best friend and also your enemy. Because ofthis, you should be able to market your product in less than 30 seconds to a prospective buyers. Most buyers do not have all day to waste, you must find a catch phrase to get their attention immediately. 2.Focus on the benefits of your services. Instead of presenting a detailed description of what you do, your marketing materials should talk about how your services can help prospective clients.3.Identify your unique professional strengths and use them as “selling points.” 4.Observe how your competitors market similar services. Use the things that work and learn from their mistakes to market your practice more effectively. 5. Whether you solicit feedback informally by talking to referral sources, colleagues and members of the community, or through formal mechanisms such as focus groups, surveys and other market research, it is important to track your results. Consider including a question about how new clients heard about your practice on forms you use to collect information at intake. DON’ts 1.Base your marketing efforts on untested assumptions. Use market research and planning in getting to know your client base and target market. 2.Become irrelevant. Monitor the environment and the profession for trends, identify competencies that will become increasingly important, and start developing related skills. 3.Get discouraged by competition. It is good for the marketplace and good for psychology as long as practitioners develop the business skills to compete effectively. 4.Shortchange your marketing efforts. Make sure you budget adequately for them. 5.Offer services that clients don’t value. No one will seek them, even if you market the services well. Source Read all >>

THE SIX PILLARS OF SELF-ESTEEM by NATHANIEL BRANDEN

sirsmallz | 2022-07-1509

Stories
HELLO TFANS, The book on review today will be summarized into 3 lessons; - Self-esteem is like calcium: a lack won’t kill you, but you can’t truly live without it. - Accept yourself and take full responsibility. - Living purposefully and practicing personal integrity are the hardest pillars of self-esteem. 1. Self-esteem is like calcium In a way, self-esteem is like calcium. Calcium is what makes your teeth and bones strong, making it an essential part of a healthy body. While a lack of calcium won’t kill you, if you stay depleted over a long time, living a fully engaged life becomes really hard, as your body gets weak. The same is true for self-esteem and your psychological well-being. Sure, you can navigate through life without it, but you’ll always get pushed around and not truly live in accordance with your goals, purposes and values. This is because self-esteem works like a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more you expect yourself to be capable of, the more these expectations influence your behavior in a way that makes your actions align with them. Therefore, your self-esteem is a way to turn your desires into reality. 2. Accept yourself and take full responsibility. Self-acceptance is connected to mindfulness. You choose to value yourself, just the way you are,without practicing judgment. If you practice self-acceptance and dig deeper, you’ll make repeating this bad behavior a lot less likely. A caveat: Self-acceptance shouldn’t be confused with complacency. To the contrary.The only way to find the drive to get better is to accept yourself as you are now, otherwise you’ll waste all of your time agonizing over your past mistakes. Self-responsibility is a direct result of self-acceptance. It means taking control of your life and happiness by becoming 100% solution-oriented. Don’t waste even a second complaining, and instantly ask “What can I do about it?” whenever a problem arises. Completely stop blaming others. Nobody’s pushing your buttons, no one’s actions are a pre-condition for your own and it is nobody’s job to make you happy. 3. Try living with a purpose and practice personal integrity Most of us feel like we have a sense of what our purpose is, or at least a rough idea of it. Living with purpose means to try and keep clarifying that purpose as you go along, while simultaneously taking actions that’ll move us closer in that direction. Taking action is the part that makes sure you complete the sixth pillar, the most difficult of them all: personal integrity. It’s when how you behave matches the words you speak. It starts with keeping small promises and speaking the truth even when a little white lie would be more convenient. This is the hardest one to practice, because our society makes a morality seem normal – being a cynic and exhibiting bad habits is even considered cool these days. SOURCE Read all >>

General
Hello T-Fans, How has the week been for you? I sure hope it has been a great and fruitful week? I want to welcome you to another session of Technological Updates for this week, today we would be discussing a term called, "DATAFICATION." WHAT IS DATAFICATION? Datafication is the process of transforming an organization into a data-driven corporation using a variety of tools, technologies, and techniques. This catchphrase refers to an organizational trend in which a reliance on data and its supporting infrastructure on a global scale define the key to basic company activities. Datafication is also known as datafy. An organization that implements datafication is said to be datafied. WHY DATAFICATION IS IMPORTANT Only by using datafication can organizations stay up with the most recent technology developments. Businesses in all sectors can use datafy to enhance many of their crucial procedures. The moment these processes are quantifiable, optimization is immediately possible. Datafication enables firms to enhance operations, boost productivity, and boost revenue. At the micro level, it can assist businesses in completing routine activities while utilizing their resources to the fullest. On a larger scale, it can simplify current procedures, enabling users to compete. DATAFYING YOUR BUSINESS Below are some ways to successfully datafy your business: Use the Right Technology - By incorporating your company into the Internet of Things (IoT), you may begin datafying it. That calls for putting the appropriate technologies in place, including mobile phones, wearables, Bluetooth beacons, and voice assistants. Use the Appropriate Platform - Once the infrastructure is in place, pick the platform that will best enable you to extract data. The data you require for your research should be produced by that platform. Additionally, it should be able to transform enormous amounts of web data into information that is structured and machine-readable. You'll have the best tools to track and analyse trends to improve your decision-making processes if you use the correct platform. Build a Centralized Repository - The only way to successfully implement datafication is to utilise all accessible data. Therefore, you require a solitary repository that every employee in the company may access. APPLICATIONS OF DATAFICATION Datafication is no longer just a trendy term because of its myriad uses in a variety of industries, including: Human Resource Management Businesses can collect information from mobile devices, social media, and applications to find new employees and assess their personality traits and risk-taking tendencies. Datafication can assess analytical thinking to determine whether candidates match the company culture and roles they are applying for instead of requiring them to complete personality tests. Datafication may result in the creation of fresh personality tests for hiring managers. Commercial Real Estate For people working in the real estate sector, particularly in commercial real estate, datafication might be helpful. To acquire comprehensive insights into numerous areas, real estate organisations should leverage datafication technologies and techniques. As a result, they will be able to determine whether the property they are considering is suitable for a customer looking to establish a successful business. Financial Service Provision The financial services sector may be the one in all industries that may profit the most from datafication. Datafication is used by insurance companies to update their business models and comprehend a person's risk profile. It can also be used by the banking sector to forecast a person's capacity to repay a loan or mortgage. Customer Relationship Management Businesses that leverage customer data gain advantages by adopting datafication techniques and technologies to comprehend their customers. They are able to create suitable triggers that are pertinent to the personalities and purchasing habits of their target audiences. Datafication enables businesses to collect information based on the voice and words that potential clients use in conversations, emails, and social media.

HICCUPS: CAUSES, SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENT

TSPOT HEALTH NG | 2022-07-1516

Health
Hello T-Fans, Hiccup is the involuntary contractions of the diaphragm (which is the muscle that separates the thorax from theabdomen) and this plays a very important role in respiration. Each muscular contraction is followed by an abrupt closure of the vocal cords of the individual and this is what produces the"hic" sound. Hiccups may result from a large meal, alcoholic beverages or sudden excitement. In some cases, hiccups may be a sign of an underlying medical condition. For most people, a bout of hiccups usually lasts only a few minutes. It's quite uncommon for hiccups to persist for months. This can result in malnutrition and exhaustion. SYMPTOMS The characteristic sound of a hiccup is the only sign. Sometimes the only symptom is a slight tightening sensation in your chest, abdomen or throat that precedes the sound. WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR Make an appointment to see your doctor if your hiccups last more than 48 hours or if they are so severe that they cause problems with eating, sleeping or breathing. CAUSES The most common triggers for hiccups that last less than 48 hours include: Drinking carbonated beverages Drinking too much alcohol Eating too much Excitement or emotional stress Sudden temperature changes Swallowing air with chewing gum or sucking on candy Hiccups that last more than 48 hours may be caused by a variety of factors, which are generally grouped into the following categories. Nerve damage or irritation The most common cause of long-term hiccups is damage to or irritation of the vagus nerves or phrenic nerves, which serve the diaphragm muscle.Factors that may cause damage or irritation to these nerves include: A hair or something else in your ear touching your eardrum A Tumor, cyst or Goiter in your neck Gastroesophageal reflux Sore throat or Laryngitis Central nervous system disorders A Tumor or infection in your central nervous system or damage to your central nervous system as a result of Trauma can disrupt your body's normal control of the hiccup reflex. Examples include: Encephalitis Meningitis Multiple sclerosis Stroke Traumatic brain injury Tumors Metabolic disorders and drugs Long-term hiccups can be triggered by: Alcoholism Anesthesia Barbiturates Diabetes Electrolyte imbalance Kidney failure Steroids Tranquilizers RISK FACTORS Men are much more likely to develop long-term hiccups than are women. Other factors that may increase your risk of hiccups include: Mental or emotional issues: Anxiety, stress and excitement have been associated with some cases of short-term and long-term hiccups. Surgery: Some people develop hiccups after undergoing general anesthesia or after procedures that involve abdominal organs. TREATMENTS AND DRUGS Most cases of hiccups go away on their own without medical treatment. If an underlying medical condition is causing your hiccups, treatment of that illness may eliminate the hiccups. The following treatments may be considered for hiccups that have lasted longer than two days. Medications Drugs commonly used to treat long-term hiccups include: Chlorpromazine Metoclopramide Baclofen Surgical and other procedures If less invasive treatments aren't effective, your doctor may recommend an injection of an anesthetic to block your phrenic nerve to stop hiccups. Another option is to surgically implant a battery-operated device to deliver mild electrical stimulation to your vagus nerve. This procedure is most commonly used to treat epilepsy, but it has also helped control persistent hiccups. LIFESTYLE AND HOME REMEDIES Although there's no certain way to stop hiccups, if you have a bout of hiccups that lasts longer than a few minutes, the following home remedies may provide relief, although they are unproven: Breathe into a paper bag Gargle with ice water Hold your breath Sip cold water ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE When long-term hiccups don't respond to other remedies, alternative treatments, such as hypnosis and acupuncture, may be helpful.
