Correlation Between Total Nasal Symptom Score and Epworth Sleepiness Scale in Allergic Rhinitis Patients

Abstract : Symptoms of allergic rhinitis (AR) in the form of sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, and itchy nose which are chronic, progressive, irreversible in advanced stages can cause sleep disturbances. Allergic rhinitis can be assessed subjectively by assessing the symptoms that appear using the Total Nasal Symptom Score. Sleep disturbance can be assessed subjectively by analyzing the level of daytime fatigue using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale questionnaire. This study aims to find the relationship betw


RISK FACTORS OF SALT CONSUMPTION ON THE INCIDENCE OF HYPERTENSION IN COMMUNITIES IN THE COASTAL AREA OF BAUBAU CITY

Abstract : Excessive salt consumption has been shown to increase blood pressure and increase the prevalence of hypertension. Recommendations for the use of sodium (Na) should be no more than 2 grams/day (equivalent to 5-6 grams of NaCl per day or 1 teaspoon of table salt) (inaSH, 2021). The incidence of hypertension, especially in coastal communities, is caused by diet and lack of physical activity. Meanwhile, in the Baubau City area in 2020, there will be 4,822 hypertension sufferers (56.5%). Whereas in 2


Effects of Spatholobus Methanol Extract Hassk's Littoralis Against Morphology Candida Albicans and Serum IL-10 Levels in Rat Model Candidiasis Vulvovaginal

Abstract : Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is an infection of the lower female reproductive tract mucosa caused by the polymorphic opportunistic fungus Candida albicans. Colonization of C. Albicans in the vaginal lumen is generally asymptomatic. Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is a common infection of the genital tract that affects millions of women worldwide. This study aims to determine the effect of methanol extract of Bajakah (Spatholobus littoralis hassk) on the morphology of Candida albicans in the vag


Multimodal Imaging Diagnosis of Hemophilic Knee Arthropathy: A Case Series

Abstract : Hemophilia is a congenital disease resulting from a severe coagulation factor VIII or factor IX deficiency. This condition causes the emergence of target joints, which in 30% of hemophilic patients develops hemophilic arthropathy. We reported three cases of hemophilic arthropathy that were examined using conventional radiology modalities, ultrasound and 1.5T MRI at Dr. Kariadi Semarang. Conventional radiological examinations were assessed using the Arnold Hiltgartner qualitative scale and the Pe


Electrochemical Synthesis and Characterization of Al2O3 /ZnO Nanocomposite

Abstract : Nanomaterials have excellent chemical and physical properties and have wide applications in the modern time. One of the important methods for preparing nanocomposites (Al2O3/ZnO) is the electrochemical deposition method, which is characterized by speed, ease and inexpensive. The nanocomposite characterizes by Advanced techniques such as x-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis), energy disper


A Clinical Evaluation of Kim et al. Prediction Scale of Impacted Lower Third Molar Extraction Difficulty

Abstract : Determining the difficulty of impacted lower third molar (L3M) is a continuous challenge for oral surgeons. Kim et al., a modification of Pederson scale is one of the indices proposed to estimate the difficulty of (L3M) based on radiographic findings. Preoperative panoramic view were obtained for fifty patients who need (L3M) being extracted the difficulty was predicted according to Kim et al. A clinical evaluation of difficulty was considered according Parant scale (PS) and surgical time (ST).


POTENTIAL USE OF FERMENTED DANGKE CHEESE TO IMPROVE GLYCEMIC CONTROL IN RATS FED WITH A HIGH-FAT GLUCOSE DIET AND PROPYLTHIOURACIL

Abstract : Dangke is a local cheese from Enrekang, South Sulawesi, traditionally made with buffalo milk and papaya sap. Dangke is a good source of lactic acid bacteria, which may offer health benefits. This study aimed to investigate the anti-hyperglycemic effects of dangke in rats. In addition, this study also examined the effect of fermentation time on the number of lactic acid bacteria obtained from dangke. Dangke was prepared by boiling buffalo milk and papaya sap until solidified and fermented in a ja


Effects of Pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) Seed Capsule Provision on Total Cholesterol, LDL, and HDL Levels in Patients with Hypercholesterolemia in Palu City: An Experimental Study

Abstract : Hypercholesterolemia is a condition with increased total and LDL cholesterol concentrations, and pumpkin seed extract can be used as a functional food to reduce this complication. The flavonoids, phytosterols, fiber, and antioxidants in pumpkin seed decrease the total cholesterol and LDL levels while increasing HDL. This study aimed to analyze the effect of pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) seed capsule compared to simvastatin on total cholesterol, LDL, and HDL levels in hypercholesterolemic patients


Efforts to Improve The Lorong Community Empowerment Model: Management-Based Intervention Model

Abstract : The Healthy Cities Movement in Indonesia has been carried out, although it has been officially effective since the issue of a Joint Regulation between the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Health in 2005. Lorong (alley) are the elements that need attention in realizing healthy cities because of their very complex issues, including cleanliness, awareness, and inadequate infrastructure. The involvement of various community groups from the lower level is still not maximized in several ar
