Things to know about Diclofenac after Health Ministry warning

A warning on the effects of misuse of pain medication Diclofenac should be taken seriously.

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board Friday May 20th issued a warning below.

Here is what you should know about it:

Diclofenac is used to relieve pain, swelling (inflammation), and joint stiffness caused by arthritis.

Diclofenac, sold under the brand name Voltaren among others, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used to treat pain and inflammatory diseases such as gout. It is taken by mouth, rectally in a suppository, used by injection, or applied to the skin. Improvements in pain last for as much as eight hours.

Diclofenac is considered more potent than ibuprofen and needs to be taken two or three times per day. Ibuprofen often needs to be taken in higher doses to treat pain from arthritis.

Diclofenac tablets and capsules can cause an ulcer in your stomach or gut if you take them for a long time or in big doses. There’s also a small risk of heart failure or kidney failure if you take very big doses (150mg a day) for a long time. It’s best to take the lowest dose that works for the shortest possible time.

Diclofenac does not increase the risk of hypertension, but does increase the risk of stroke. Naproxen (Naprosyn) does not increase the risk of hypertension or stroke.

Diclofenac and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) cause the kidney to lose the capacity to make these protective hormones and over time, can result in progressive kidney damage. This damage may take years in some people but in others can occur after a single dose.

Diclofenac may cause dizziness, drowsiness or visual disturbances. Don’t drive or operate machinery until you know how it affects you and are sure it won’t affect your performance

Research shows diclofenac is the strongest and most effective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine available.

Mike Mondo delivered over 90 babies during his days as a nurse

Classic 105 host Mike Mondo men should not be present in the delivery room when their wives are giving birth as delivery is not a rosy affair.

Mike says people should stop assuming that childbirth is what they see on movies or YouTube. Mondo who is a qualified nurse says that it is the women in your wife’s life who should be present.

Speaking during an interview with Kalondu Musyimi, he advised,

“Men should stay outside the door and let their sister, your mum, your mum-in-law be there,” he said.

Mike said men are of no use to their wives while in the delivery room.

“In most cases, they will end up being stressed out after the experience,” he said.

Talking about his experience as a nurse before he decided to join radio, Mike shared,

“During my time in the career, I delivered more than 90 babies as a nurse, and I would never encourage a man to be around. It is simple, would a woman be allowed to stay when her son is being circumcised?”

He also said he can never deliver his child since there are so many emotions. Mike Mondo worked as a nurse for a year at a Kilifi hospital.

That is when he moved to Nairobi and started looking for something else to do.

“I delivered over 90 babies, 11 breach deliveries. I have also assisted in Caesarean-section and have done normal deliveries,” he said.

Mike also addressed marriage, saying he would never force to be in one.

“I would want to pursue marriage. Do I believe in it? I don’t know yet, but I would love to pursue it, he said.

“Marriage is not for everyone and I say, don’t ever feel bad if you never get married. Enjoy that single life. Marriage in my opinion is not about falling in love and has nothing to do with love.”

Mike said marriage is when two people can handle each other.

“It is for companionship. It is not about the roses and so on. The most important thing is to be able to stick through it,” he said.

Kenyan celebrities who have been in the delivery rooms with their wives include Frankie Kiarie also known as Frankie JustGymIt, and DJ Moz also known as Kimathi Mathenge.

Also present in the delivery room was Kabi Wa Jesus, he has been present during the 2 deliveries of his wife Milly Wa Jesus.

Do you think fathers should be in the delivery room?

Everyday house hold items your teen might be using to get high

Wondering how your teen gets high yet you never give him cash to buy drugs? He/she might be using items at home.

Below are everyday household items your son or daughter might be abusing.

Some teens inhale household products like 

Glue

Glue is present in most homes, it can be furniture glue or the one used on shoes by cobblers.

Glue can be consumed through different methods among them

Sniffing of vapors directly from an open container or a surface soaked with the substance.

Oral inhalation from a rag or cloth soaked in a volatile substance that is held over the mouth or nose; or 

 Bagging involves breathing in and out of a paper or plastic bag filled with a small amount of a volatile substance.

Aerosol sprays

Sniffing aerosol spray cans “can directly induce heart failure and death.

People who use nitrous to get high usually transfer the gas into another container, like a balloon. 

Then they inhale the gas from the balloon. Examples of this include toilet fresheners’ furniture cleaning spray, etc.

Cleaning fluids

These fluids are mostly abused due to their easy availability and the fact that they do not arouse suspicion.

The most commonly abused cleaning agents include dry cleaning fluid, spot removers, and degreasers. These fluids typically vaporize at room temperature and are easy to ingest via the mouth or nasal pathways. 

Nutmeg/Kukumanga

Nutmeg is used as a spice in many Kenyan households.

What most parents do not know is that it contains a chemical that may give you a feel-good high if you get enough of it.

Nutmeg poisoning can give you heart palpitations and make you feel dizzy, nauseous, tired, or anxious. Some people have died from eating too

gas from whipped cream cans

Aftershave

This is used to reduce breakouts, razor burn, or razor bumps when shaving.

Some teens drink this to get high, this can lead to alcohol poisoning, seizures, coma, or even death.

Hand sanitizer

Drinking this can lead to alcohol poisoning, seizures, coma, or death.

Bath salts

This is a crystalline substance that is dissolved in bathwater to soften or perfume it.

It is mostly used in bathtubs.

It can be swallowed, snorted, or injected. 

Once used the bath salt can cause a feeling of joy or boost sex drive. 

But it could also make you feel drunk, get violent, or lose touch with reality. 

The salt bath is addictive and can cause symptoms such as chest pain, panic attacks, hallucinations, and in some instances death.

Deodorant

In May 2022, an Australian girl was found dead by her mum on mothers day.

Ryan believes her daughter died of sudden sniffing death syndrome and suffered a heart attack.

The girl’s mother said she was inhaling the deodorant with her boyfriend when she went into cardiac arrest, leaving her with brain damage.

Alcohol tampons

Teens soak tampons in vodka, then put them in their vaginas or rectums. 

There’s no proof that this works. What’s more, the vodka may burn sensitive vaginal or rectal tissue. In rare cases, it has caused colitis.

It can be hard for such teens to get treatment when they get alcohol poisoning because the teenager’s breath has no alcohol smell.

The symptoms to look out for include

  • Frequent headaches
  • Excessive use of deodorant or other aerosol sprays
  • Stains and chemical odors on towels and clothes
  • Disorientation or slurred speech
  • Nausea or loss of appetite

‘Losing my 2 kids led me to depression’ – Isaac Mwaura’s wife Mukami

Mukami Mwaura, wife to politician Isaac Mwaura has opened up about battling depression after she lost 2 of her three kids.

The couple welcomed triplets in 2017, sadly two of them died after being admitted to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Sharing her experience with Barbara Mmbaka, Mukami shared

“In 2017 I delivered triplets but I lost two of the babies. I have left with a boy who is currently 5 years old.

One of the kids passed after two days the other after three months.”

Mukami says her stay in the hospital was not a pleasant one as she had to watch her baby being resuscitated to no avail.

She also had to endure watching her other child fighting for his life only to pass away.
” At some point, I had to be admitted to the hospital for depression, I was dealing with postpartum depression and trauma depression.

I felt alone because I did not know anyone, and my husband and family did not know how to help me.

I was a new mum, I was also grieving.

When I interacted with other women who had lost their kids, I realized I was not alone.

I lost my job while 6 months pregnant.”

Mukami says it is through her journey of grief and loss that she came up with the organization Kena.

“We support families with premature babies.

Kena is also a place to seek information to help mothers with premie babies on how to help them live and thrive.

We also offer mental support, and provide mental awareness.”

In a past interview, Isaac Mwaura revealed that the doctors had tried resuscitating their son more than 20 times.

Mwaura added that the girl had been named after his mum.

Isaac Mwaura and his pregnant wife Nelius in 2017

Speaking during an interview with Ala C, Mwaura narrated,

“In 2016 we were expecting triplets, In January 2017 I was attending a fundraiser for the Jubilee nominations.

I was called and told my wife had become sick, I called the driver and asked him to take her to the hospital.

As I was preparing to go to the hospital the next day she called and told me she was being taken to the theatre to deliver.”

Mwaura says he was not ready for what happened next,

“I found very tiny babies born at 28 weeks, we had been blessed with 2 boys and 1 girl. The babies were taken to NICU, and the girl died after 1 day, and for the next 72 hours my son was resuscitated 20 times.

I told them not to do it anymore because even if he was to survive he might have ended in a cabbage state.”

Adding,

“I was already in love with my daughter before I met her. We went through hell after losing 2 kids (a boy and a girl). At the time all five of us were admitted to Nairobi hospital as I had to undergo minor surgery.

The loss really affected me and my wife, it is only now that she is recovering.”

The couple was left with a hospital bill of 11.2 million.

Govt wants mandatory HIV tests for all emergency admissions

You could be tested for HIV if you end up in hospital with any injury, according to a proposal being considered by the Ministry of Health.

There is currently no such requirement for trauma patients in Kenya, despite the risk to patients and health workers.

Experts at the ministry, Kenyatta National Hospital and Kenya Medical Research Institute say they have evidence most patients at the accidents and emergency departments readily agree to be tested for HIV.

The specialists offered HIV testing to patients at KNH between March 2 and May 25 last year.

“When offered, acceptance of HIV testing in the population was high, both in the emergency department and inpatient care venues,” they said in a report.

The proportion of patients who turned out positive was higher than in the national average.

However, the experts say this is unsurprising because data from sub-Saharan Africa have shown that patients seeking injury treatments have high burdens of HIV and are often first diagnosed during emergency care evaluations.

“A new diagnosis of HIV was found in 11.4 per cent of emergency department-tested participants,” a report reads.

The report is titled “Assessment of Standard HIV Testing Services Delivery to Injured Persons Seeking Emergency Care in Nairobi, Kenya: A Prospective Observational Study.”

In Kenya, HIV prevalence in the general population is about 4.6 per cent.

The study has not been published in a scientific journal yet but is available on the preprint platform Medrxiv.

An emergency department, also known as an accident and emergency department, receives patients who present without present without prior appointment.

In Kenya, most of them are from road accidents and falls, according to evidence from the MoH.

“Kenya experiences substantial injury burdens which also disproportionately occur in groups highly affected by HIV,” the report reads.

“Indicating that emergency department-based HIV programming during commonly sought injury care could be an impactful interface for testing.”

Such injuries are particularly common among population groups with a greater likelihood of HIV occurrence. These include young people, Persons Who Inject Drugs, men who have sex with men and sex workers.

“The majority of participants strongly agreed that HIV testing services should be provided during emergency care and that aspects of the environment and care interactions are suitable for emergency department-based testing,” the experts said.

The proportion of newly identified HIV positive people among the participants completing testing was more than two-fold greater than the baseline population prevalence in the study setting.

In Kenya, although HIV prevalence among women (6.6 per cent) in Kenya is double that of men (3.1 per cent), the testing levels of women are much higher.

Separately, the National Aids and STIS Control Programme last year said thousands of Kenyan men are living with HIV but are unaware of their status, researchers say.

The researchers last year said they interviewed and tested 114,776 men for HIV in Kenya and 12 other countries and found large numbers of them who had HIV and did not know it.

“Of those positive, 33.7 per cent were unaware of their HIV-positive status,” the researchers said in findings published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

Most of the men who are unaware of the HIV-positive status said they had never been tested for the virus. They accounted for 63 per cent.

Although the HIV prevalence among women (6.6 per cent) in Kenya is double that of men (3.1 per cent), the testing levels of women are much higher.

Recent studies show that nearly 72 per cent of Kenyan women had tested for HIV in the past 12 months and received their results, compared to 45 per cent of men.

The JAIDS study says that targeting men at risk of infection could improve the yield of testing programmes.

“The results from this large sample suggest that many men in sub-Saharan Africa are likely unaware of their HIV-positive status due to the compounding effects of sociodemographic, behavioural and clinical influences,” the authors say.

National Aids and STIS Control Programme and US Centre for Disease Control in Kenya took part in the study.

However, according to the Constitution of Kenya 2010, compulsory HIV testing shall be considered unlawful unless otherwise.

Worlds longest covid infection lasted 505 days

A UK patient had COVID-19 for 505 days.

The previous record for persistent infection — rather than repeated bouts of COVID — is thought to be 335 days

British researchers from King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust said

The unnamed individual was diagnosed in mid-2020 with respiratory symptoms that later improved.

But they then tested positive about 45 times before attending hospital up to their death.

Consultant virologist Gaia Nebbia said persistent infection with SARS-CoV-2 — the virus which causes COVID-19 — has been described in patients with weakened immune systems.

She and her team studied how the virus from nine COVID patients in London changed over time, concluding that new variants may occur in immunocompromised patients.

“This is one of the hypotheses for the emergence of variants,” Nebbia told AFP.

“Regular sampling and genetic analysis of the virus showed that five of the nine patients developed at least one mutation seen in variants of concern.

“Some individuals developed multiple mutations associated with variants of concern, such as the Alpha, Delta and Omicron variants.

“However, none of the individuals in our work developed new variants that became widespread variants of concern.”

While we were waiting We kept on singing Praises to Him, we kept on encouraging others yet we were also asking God questions.
” where are you ? Until when, how many more doctors shall we see?”
Then I would hear a voice saying ..Get encouraged.The measure of your Temptation is equal to the measure of your Blessings.So fight your battle delightfully for after every Test there is a Testimony and after every Victory there is a Prize.

– 👆🏾👆🏾Angel Gabriel is giving a testimony to Mary of what God had done to Elizabeth saying, THE ONE WHO WAS CALLED BARREN IS PREGNANT!!
For with God nothing will be impossible (Luke 1:36,37)
Agunda and I have come to realize that God has a track record of keeping His word.

This season, may even the angels testify of your breakthrough. Change of your status! Change of your name! Change of your circumstances! Change of your story!

Indeed God is faithful, He has made everything beautiful in His time. Ecclesiastes 3:11

A big Thank you for everyone who ever mentioned us in your prayers and held our hands.

One HPV vaccine protects against Cervical Cancer – Study finds

A new study from Africa shows that one shot of the HPV vaccine is highly effective in cancer causing types of HPV in girls.

These findings are from a World Health Organisation group of experts who said a single dose of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is enough to protect against cervical cancer.

The study found that one dose of the vaccine was around 90% or more effective at preventing infection from several cancer-causing types of HPV up to 18 months later.

At the moment, two- or three-dose regimens are recommended, but the WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization said the evidence showed that one dose was as effective.

“This could be a game-changer for the prevention of the disease; seeing more doses of the life-saving jab reach more girls,” the WHO said in a statement.

Some studies have suggested that even one dose should provide comparable protection, and research has been ongoing to test out that theory. The results from one such major trial—the KEN SHE Study conducted in Kenya, Africa—have finally been published today in the journal NEJM Evidence.

‘I am ready to go to heaven,’ Janet Ikua’s last moments

Media personality Janet Kanini-Ikua passed on five years ago due to Cancer complications.

She was diagnosed with lung cancer stage four in 2015 and in February 2016, she announced she was cancer free.

Years later, she started falling sick and her health deteriorated spending most of her last year in hospital due to the disease.

Her last big interview where she said she was ready to die has surfaced online.

“Based on earthly statistics, you’re counting days until the day you die,” she told Victoria Rubadiri on NTV.

Janet asked people to spend enough time with their loved ones.

“How do you want to go out? Do you want to go out miserable, wishing or do you want to prepare yourself in such a way that even spiritually I am ready to go to heaven? God take me right now, I am coming straight to you there are people around you who deserve your appreciation who deserve love, are you spending enough time with them.”
