adenoma of the prostate
Increase in the volume of the prostate gland located under the bladder of man. This increase in volume is benign, has no relationship to cancer, but can interfere with the passage of urine into the urethra through the gland.

- difficulty urinating (slowness, weakness of the spray);
- the need to get up several times at night to urinate;
- urges to urinate imperiously and difficult to control.
General name designating a family of substances that have the property of being able to be mixed with water and fatty substances. The most common alcohol is ethyl alcohol (ethanol), but there are many other alcohols: methanol, butanol, etc. The degree of alcoholic solution corresponds to the volume of pure alcohol present in 100 ml of solution, knowing that 1 glass of wine or 1/2 of beer (25 cl) contains about 8 g of alcohol.
When alcohol is used as an antiseptic, an unpleasant odor denaturant is often added to prevent drinking. Contrary to a widespread belief, alcohol at 70o (or even 60o) is a better antiseptic than alcohol at 90o.
Medication that works against pain. Analgesics act either directly on the centers of pain in the brain or by blocking the transmission of pain to the brain.
Affection healed or always in evolution. The antecedent may be personal or family. The background is the history of a person's health.
Medication that prevents blood from coagulating and therefore prevents clots from forming in the blood vessels.
Anticoagulants are used to treat or prevent phlebitis, pulmonary embolism, certain infarcts. They also prevent the formation of clots in the heart during rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation or in the case of an artificial heart valve.
There are two main types of anticoagulants:
- oral anticoagulants, which block the action of vitamin K (antivitamin K, or AVK) and whose effectiveness is controlled by a blood test: INR (formerly TP);
- injectable anticoagulants derived from heparin, the efficacy of which can be controlled by the blood assay of anti-Xa activity, Howell's Time (TH) or Cephalin Kaolin Time (TCK) depending on the products used. A regular dosage of blood platelets is necessary throughout the life of a heparin derivative.
Medication that works against depression. Some antidepressants are also used to combat obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, certain rebellious pain, enuresis, etc.
Depending on their mode of action and adverse effects, antidepressants are divided into different families: imipraminic antidepressants, serotonin reuptake inhibitors, selective or non-selective MAOIs. Finally, other antidepressants do not belong to any of these families, because they possess original properties.
The mode of action of antidepressants has two main aspects: the relief of moral suffering and the fight against inhibition which removes all will to action from the depressed. There may be a time lag between these two effects: moral suffering may persist, while the capacity for action reappears. During this short period, the risk of suicide in some depressed people can be increased. The physician takes it into account in its prescription (possible association with a tranquillizer) and it must imperatively be respected.
Medication that opposes different effects of histamine. Two main types exist: antihistamines type H1 (antiallergic) and antihistamines type H2 (gastric antiulcer). Some antihistamines of type H1 are sedative, others do not alter vigilance.
Medication used to lower the body temperature during bouts of fever.
Involuntary contractions limited to a few muscles or generalized to the whole body. They are due to excessive pain or stimulation of the brain: fever, poisoning, lack of oxygen, brain damage. Convulsions may be due to an epileptic seizure or high fever in young children.
A general term for diseases that result in the emission of abundant urine and intense thirst. The word diabetes, used alone, is generally related to diabetes mellitus, which corresponds to a disruption in the regulation of the body's sugars by insulin. It results in increased sugar (glucose) in the blood and its possible presence in the urine. There are two types of diabetes mellitus: Type 1 or insulin-dependent diabetes, which requires insulin injections, and type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes, which can initially be treated with oral antidiabetics.
Disease characterized by increased pressure of the fluids contained in the eye (intraocular hypertension).
This general term covers two totally different affections:
- Open angle glaucoma or chronic glaucoma is the most common; it is generally symptom-free, detected by the measurement of intraocular tension in the ophthalmologist. It does not cause acute seizures, and treatment relies primarily on beta-blocking eye drops. People with open-angle glaucoma should not use cortisone derivatives without prior ophthalmologic advice.
- Closed-angle glaucoma or acute glaucoma is more rare. Between seizures, intraocular tension is normal. But the inadvertent use of atropine medicines (especially eye drops) causes an acute crisis of intraocular hypertension which can permanently damage the retina in a few hours. It is an ophthalmological emergency that is recognized by a brutally red eye, horribly painful, hard as a glass ball, and whose vision becomes blurred.
Contraindications for atropine medicines are limited to those who have already had closed-angle glaucoma or have been detected by an ophthalmologist. Those who suffer from chronic open angle glaucoma are not affected by these contraindications.
high blood pressure
Excess blood pressure (tension) in the arteries. This pressure is provided by the heart and is expressed by two digits. It is maximal during contraction of the heart, or systole (first digit), and minimal during cardiac rest, or diastole (second digit). High blood pressure is characterized by a maximum (systolic) pressure greater than or equal to 16, or a minimum (diastolic) pressure greater than or equal to 9.5. Treatment is initiated when these numbers are exceeded or for lower blood pressure in some people with cardiovascular risk factors: heredity, smoking, diabetes, excess cholesterol. Permanent antihypertensive therapy reduces damage to the heart and blood vessels due to high blood pressure.
Excessive thyroid hormones, including heart failure, poor heat tolerance, weight loss and chronic fatigue.
Reduced blood pressure when changing from elongated to standing. Due mostly to drugs, orthostatic hypotension results in dizziness with risk of fall, especially in the elderly. These disturbances can be prevented by avoiding sudden changes of position: sit for a few moments at the edge of the bed before standing, slowly rising from a seat, keeping a support before moving.
Wearing compression stockings, which prevents blood from flowing back to the legs while standing, is also used to treat orthostatic hypotension.
Abbreviation for mono-amine oxidase inhibitor. Family of drugs used in psychiatry and neurology (depression, Parkinson's disease). These drugs are divided into non-selective MAOIs, which are incompatible with many drugs and even certain foods, and selective MAOIs (A or B), for which these disadvantages are absent or limited.
coronary heart disease
Partial disability of the arteries of the heart (coronary arteries) to irrigate the heart muscle. Seizures of angina pectoris can occur, most often during an effort.
Inability of the liver to perform its function, which is essentially the elimination of some waste, but also the synthesis of many biological substances essential to the body: albumin, cholesterol and coagulation factors (vitamin K, etc.).
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.
The count measures the number of red blood cells (red blood cells), white blood cells (leukocytes) and platelets in the blood. The blood formula specifies the percentage of different white blood cells: neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, monocytes.
Abnormal perception of irregular heartbeat.
Chronic disease of the nervous system related to the alteration of certain brain cells and resulting in mobility disorders and sometimes tremors.
Quantity and distribution of the dose of a drug according to the age, weight and general condition of the patient.
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.
- Quiets, calms down.
- Medication belonging to different families: anxiolytics, hypnotics, analgesics, antitussives, antiepileptics, neuroleptics, etc. but also antidepressants, antihistamines H1, antihypertensives. A sedative can be responsible for drowsiness and increase the effects of alcohol.
Taking an excessive amount of a drug exposes you to an increase in the intensity of adverse effects, or even to the appearance of particular adverse effects.
This overdose may result from accidental or voluntary poisoning for suicide, so consult your local Poison Control Center (listed in the appendix to the book). However, in most cases, overdose is the result of an error in the understanding of the prescription, or the search for an increase in efficacy by exceeding the recommended dosage. Finally, untimely self-medication may lead to excessive absorption of the same substance contained in different drugs. Some drugs are particularly prone to this risk because they are (wrongly) considered to be harmless: vitamins A and D, aspirin, etc. Stopping or decreasing drug intake helps to remove the disorders associated with an overdose.
Accelerating the rhythm of the heartbeat. It may be due to fever, hyperthyroidism, heart disease, certain medications, and so on.
Medication that causes contraction of blood vessels, as opposed to vasodilator.
Symptom that can mean an impression of loss of balance (common sense) or, more strictly, a sense of rotation on oneself or the environment (medical sense).
