Could Zika affect infants? It is already known third trimester pregnancy infections could be devastating even without microcephaly
Remains to be seen: I would expect significant problems with zika for anyone having it in childhood with less impairment as they age. It attacks the fragile growing nerves in the brain which develop most rapidly in early pregnancy but continue to grow/connect as kids age. Most rapid growth slows after two, but continues into young adulthood. The small head issue is a reflection of the early damage ...Read more

Hi Doctor, Good Morning ☺ last week during my routine medical test I have been deducted with blood in urine. And high eosinophilis 9. Kindly suggest.
Absolutely: The very fact that the "stone" scraping along on the inner aspect of the ureter (the tube from the kidney to the bladder) causes pain also means that it can be abrasive enough to the inside of the ureter to cause bleeding as well. Indeed, bleeding is a very common occurrence during the passage of a kidney stone. ...Read more
Urine dips always show 1+ or moderate blood in urine, but usually no RBC. What could be the cause? This is NOT during my menstrual cycle. Thanks
Microhematuria: If you exercise heavily, you will secrete myoglobin in your urine and as a UA can not distinguish between hemoglobin (from blood) and myoglobin (from muscle), UA will be positive for blood but no RBC seen. If your UA however reveals both blood and RBC then you need to seek a urologist's care for further evaluation and workup. ...Read more
