GLOSSARY (summary)


allergy
Skin reaction (itching, pimples, swelling) or general discomfort occurring after contact with a particular substance, use of a medication, or ingestion of food. The main forms of allergy are eczema, urticaria, asthma, angioedema and allergic shock (anaphylactic shock). Food allergy can also result in digestive disorders.


analgesic
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.
Synonym: analgesic.


anticoagulant
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.


osteoarthritis
Wear of cartilage, responsible for joint pain and limitation of movement.


asthma
Disease characterized by difficulty breathing, often resulting in wheezing. Asthma, permanent or occurring by crisis, is due to a narrowing and inflammation of the bronchi.


cholesterol
Main fat circulating in the blood. It is used in the body as a raw material, especially for the envelope of cells and for the synthesis of steroid hormones. In excess, cholesterol is eliminated in the bile, but it can also accumulate in the arteries and form plaques of atheroma.


diabetes
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.


glucose
Amount of sugar in one liter of blood. It usually varies between 0.6 and 1.1 g / l (3.3 mmol / l to 6 mmol / l) in the fasted person. The diagnosis of diabetes should be considered when the blood glucose exceeds 1.2 g / l (6.6 mmol / l).
