Health Tips

Tips about how you can improve or augment actions in your life to have a healthy lifestyle

Hypoxia means a shortage of oxygen — as compared to anoxia, which means a total lack of it. In common with other mammals, humans have evolved with a system of breathing and blood circulation, which allows intake of oxygen from the air and its transport throughout the body. The tissues need to extract oxygen from the blood constantly at a basic rate for their metabolism, along with the extra needed for work and exercise, and also are accustomed to a certain level of oxygen in their immediate environment. The body can compensate to some extent for a decreased level, but life depends on maintainence of the supply of oxygen. Different organs and tissues can survive lack of oxygen for different lengths of time: the brain is the most rapidly and irrevocably damaged. Because the brain regulates breathing and the circulation — the means by which oxygen is supplied to the whole body, including itself — deprivation of the brain prevents restoration of the supply; a potentially lethal vicious circle.


Hypoxia occurs (i) when there is less than the normal amount of oxygen in the air inhaled; (ii) when breathing is obstructed, is inadequate, or stops; (iii) when oxygen is not transferred normally from the lungs to the blood; (iv) when the blood cannot carry its normal quota of oxygen; (v) when the flow of blood is inadequate, or stops.

Not every case of type 2 diabetes symptoms presents the obvious—unquenchable thirst, nonstop bathroom trips, and numbness in your hands or feet. Look out for these other subtle signs that something may be amiss with your blood sugar:

  • You’ve noticed unpleasant skin changes
  • Your vision improved out of nowhere
  • You have unrelenting itchiness
  • Your hearing isn’t what it used to be
  • You snore like a chainsaw

You eat a balanced diet, get plenty of sleep, sweat several times a week, and slather on the SPF before catching any rays. You’re making healthy choices in nearly every aspect of your life, but could be neglecting one very important issue that increases your risk for high blood pressure and diabetes by two and a half times, says Michael Holick, MD, author of TheVitamin D Solution and professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at Boston University Medical Center. In fact, one billion people worldwide have a vitamin D deficiency, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.

“Insurance and Medicaid often cover a blood test,” says Carole Beggarly, director of GrassrootsHealth, a non-profit that aims to increase awareness about vitamin D deficiency (and how to fix it). “It’s helpful to be thorough and see where you’re at so you know how much to supplement.” If the assay, the most commonly ordered blood test ordered in the US, finds that you’re low in D, talk to your doctor about supplementation. (It will likely take the form of about 600 to 1,000 IU of vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, which is chemically the same as the vitamin your body produces with the sun’s help.)

Whether you get pricked or decide to pass, here are the top 5 signs that you might be d-ficient.

  • Excessive sweating
  • Noticeable—and unexpected—weakness
  • Broken bones
  • Chronic pain
  • A down-in-the-dumps mood
