Metabolic Diseases

Metabolic Diseases

Today I want to talk about a topic much discussed and important: the metabolic diseases.

Often we hear of metabolism, accelerating the metabolism of substances, problems of metabolism … but what is it?

The metabolism is nothing but the set of physical and chemical changes to produce useful energy, to grow, to function properly, in short, to realize all the functions necessary to live. That is why we hear about so often and is so important!

It performs two main tasks: to produce energy from large molecules, such as those that we introduce with the power (lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, etc.) And use energy to build complex molecules useful to cells (amino acids, nucleotides, mono-saccharides, DC.).

Unfortunately, in some cases, metabolism cannot guarantee the success of his work complex. It is metabolic diseases, primarily genetic, involving enzymes, hormones or other substances responsible for the chemical reactions of metabolism and that cause diseases at the level of organs or systems.

3 Tips for Making Life Changing Decisions

Making life changing decisions is something that everyone experiences. The older we get, the more difficult they become because we start to lay down roots. Suddenly, these decisions affect more than just yourself. When you have more at stake, career guidance and counseling is one option that will help you work toward your goals while balancing them with the rest of your life.

Here are three tips for those who are about to make a life changing decision.

Have a Vision

If you know what your ultimate goal is, making a life changing decision should become easier. Before every important decision you make, simply estimate if your choice will get you closer to your ultimate goal. Remember, your life is not going to travel in a straight line. There will be zigs and zags from Point A to Point B. In some cases, there may be a step back before you go forward three. A vision, though, helps you stay focused. When life throws you a curve ball, you can deal with it and then, get back to business.

Write a Pros and Cons List

Choices are not perfect, but if the pros outweigh the cons, then a choice may be good enough. Jotting down the pros and cons of a life changing decision is a great way to see the bigger picture. It also allows you to easily factor in how it will affect those that will be directly impacted as well. A pros and cons list also keeps you honest. If an amazing job opportunity could be yours, but you have to move, you can determine how your new salary and expenses compare to your current salary and expenses. Then, you can go from there.

Just do It

It sounds cliche, but sometimes, a life changing decision requires you to just do it. There is only so much thinking, analyzing and mulling over you can do before it becomes unproductive. There are plenty of successful figures in history and the present who took chances and eventually, came out on the other side well. Fear, doubt and failure are scary possibilities that sometimes have to be faced, head on.

Making a decision that is going to change your life will weigh on you, but having a life vision, pros and cons list, and a just do it mentality can make it easier.

Boundaries are needed in education

Setting limits is necessary in the educational process of our children. It is something that the professionals agree on. Doctors, pediatricians, teachers, psychologists, pedagogues, etc., agree on the need to go marking the children in their day to day, and also point out the dire consequences of not doing so.

Supply False Truths


There are statements, mode or legends, which have become for many people the “truth“, simply because for years feel repeat from friends and acquaintances.

We try to put some of order and see if among the many claims that are often made on foods or habits are true, especially if you promise a weight loss.

The fruit does not get fat

Of course, the fruit contains no fat and is less caloric desserts and appetizers, but it contains sugar. Eat too much, then, it can lead to introduce too many calories. This is true for all the fruits and not just for bananas, grapes, figs and persimmons. What to do then? Eat 2-3 fruits a day is essential, but we must not exaggerate: 4-5 fruits have the same calories than a plate of pasta and satiate less.

Fruits should never be eaten after a meal

The fruit has the same calories at any time of the day is eaten but is easily fermentable. And therefore preferable (but not required) to take it between meals, because if consumed at the end of the fruit meal inhibits gastric secretion, slows the digestion of proteins and inflates the belly.
