In order to do that, we want to promote some healthy habits that will make you reduce the possibility of having any heart disease because these diseases are the first cause of death in may developed countries.

On the occasion of World Kidney Day, in E&S Doctors, we want to pay attention to the problems that this may suffer. Kidneys are very important organs for our health. One of the main objectives in this day is to highlight that diabetes and high blood pressure are risk factors for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) or chronic kidney failure.

Your kidneys filter wastes and excess fluids from your blood. However, if you have chronic kidney disease in an advanced stage, these can build up and be dangerous. End-stage kidney failure can be fatal without artificial filtering or a kidney transplant. That’s why it is so important to take care of these organs. Even though diabetes and high blood pressure are risk factors, some ways of preventing this disease and treat your kidneys right are maintain a healthy diet, drink lots of water, exercise and not smoking. From E&S Doctors, we remind that kidneys are amazing and we must take care of them. Happy World Kidney Day!


On the occasion of the Rare Disease Day, hold next February 29th, we want to remember them today in E&S Doctors. To begin with, we have to mention that rare disease affects a small number of people and that’s why they’re called like that. In Europe, a disease is considered to be rare when it affects one person per 2,000. Nowadays, there are six or seven thousand rare diseases. Some of these are Huntington disease, Crohn disease, Kaposi’s sarcoma, etc.

The problem with these rare diseases is that most of them have no cure. However, treatments improve the quality of life and extend the life expectancy of those affected. Still they’re extremely unknown and it’s very difficult to identify and treat them. Despite that, science has provided many answers to these rare diseases and it’s expected to be the case thanks to the progress of the future.


Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause from a common cold to a severe acute respiratory syndrome. One of these viruses is the new one that appeared in 2019 and that has been identified as the cause of an outbreak that began in China. It has been called COVID-19. Although there isn’t much known about this virus yet, public health groups as WHO are monitoring it closely and have issued recommendations for preventing it, such as washing your hands often, covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, avoiding contact with anyone who is sick or sharing things if you’re sick, and also staying at home if you’re sick.

Symptom may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to this coronavirus and include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Most people with severe illness have been adults or had other existing medical conditions. However, it’s unclear how it spreads, but it may be by air when someone with the virus coughs or sneezes. Furthermore, risk factors include recent travel from or residence in China and close contact with someone that has this coronavirus, but there is still much unknown about the virus and it is been still investigated.


Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are normally contracted by sexual contact, but they can also be transmitted from mother to infant during pregnancy or even through blood transfusions or shared needles. The most common thing is that the organisms that cause them pass from person to person in blood, semen or bodily fluids.

STDs don’t always cause symptoms and it’s usual to contract them from people who seem perfectly healthy. These sexually transmitted diseases may go unnoticed until complications. However, some symptoms can be noticed that indicate that we have caught a STDs, like: sores or bumps on the genitals or rectal area, painful urination, discharge from the penis, odd-smelling vaginal discharge or even unusual vaginal bleeding, pain during sex, fever or rash in hands or feet.


Cancer is a disease characterized by the development of abnormal cells, which destroy normal body tissue. Frequently, it spreads throughout the body and it is the second-leading cause of death in the world. Recently, this has improved thanks to cancer screening and a proper cancer treatment. Even if there is a slight idea about what are some risk factors, the majority of cancers occur in people who do not have any known risk factors. These are: age, habits like smoking or drinking, and family history.

Symptoms vary depending on what part of the body is affected. The most common signs are fatigue, lumps under skin, weight or skin changes, persistent cough, difficulty breathing or swallowing, hoarseness, indigestion, unexplained muscle pain, fevers or night sweats and unexplained bleeding. To prevent cancer, it is advisable stop smoking, avoid excessive sun exposure, exercising, drinking alcohol in moderation and schedule cancer screening exams.


Cold urticaria is a skin reaction to cold. The skin zone that is affected develops reddish welts (hives) that itch. Usually, it is most frequent in young adults and the treatment includes preventive steps, such as taking antihistamines or avoiding cold air, water or ice-cold drinks and food, because it is not known exactly what causes it. It can be because of sensitive skin cells, an inherited trait or an illness.

People with this type of urticaria experience different symptoms. Some even might have low blood pressure or faint if swimming in cold water. The most common signs are temporary reddish welts that itch on the area of skin exposed to cold and that worsen as the skin warms, swelling of the hands while holding cold objects and swelling of lips from consuming cold food or drinks. Severe reactions may include fainting, racing heart and swelling of the tongue and throat, which can make it difficult to breathe.


Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils, which are located at the back of the throat — one tonsil on each side. Normally, it is caused by infection with a virus, but also by bacterial infections. Because appropriate treatment depends on the cause, it is important to get an immediate diagnosis. Surgery to remove tonsils was common, but nowadays it is only performed when the person affected does not respond to other treatments or has serious complications.

Tonsillitis most commonly affects children. However, symptoms are common to all ages. Some of them include:  swollen tonsils or with white patches, sore throat, painful swallowing, fever, scratchy voice, stiff neck and headache. In children, it is also normal the loss of appetite or an unusual fussiness.


Common colds are infection that affect your nose and throat. Although they might not look like it, they are harmless and can be cured in about a week or 10 days, at most. However, it is always advisable to know how to avoid them so not to go through that nuisance of being sick.

There’s no vaccine for the common cold, but there are other things that are useful in order to slow the spread of the virus. One of the best is to wash your hands, with soap and water and very often. You can also use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, but only if you don’t have soap. On the other hand, it is very effective to disinfect your stuff and to discard used tissues right away after sneezing or coughing on them. Furthermore, the most common thing is not to share drinking glasses or utensils with people that have cold or if you have it. Apart from that, the only thing you can do is to take care of yourself, eating well and getting enough sleep.


Indigestion, also called upset stomach, is a term used to describe discomfort in your upper abdomen. This is not a disease per se, but a series of symptoms like abdominal pain. Indigestion is common, but each person may experience it in a different way. Therefore, signs of it may be felt occasionally or daily. Furthermore, indigestion can be a symptom of another digestive disease and may be eased with changes in lifestyle and medication. Normally, it is nothing to worry about, but we advise to go to the doctor if discomfort lasts for more than two weeks and the pain is severe.

Indigestion’s symptoms usually are the following: early fullness during a meal, discomfort after a meal, discomfort or burning in your upper abdomen and nausea. Other less frequent include vomiting and belching. Indigestion has many possible causes, but the most common are overeating, especially greasy or spicy foods. It can also be caused by too much caffeine, alcohol or carbonated beverages. That’s why, in E&S Doctors, we recommend not to overeat or overdrink during these holidays.
