    How to stay healthy, Neurosurgeon advises

    A neurosurgeon, Dr Okezie Kanu, on Wednesday advised Nigerians to increase water intake, exercise regularly and eat organic foods, including fruits and vegetables, in order to stay healthy.

    Kanu, an Associate Professor at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), gave the advice at the 2022 Annual Workshop and Luncheon of the Association of Private Practicing Surveyors of Nigeria (APPSN).

    The APPSN is a subgroup of the Nigerian Institution of Surveyors (NIS).

    He said maintaining a healthy lifestyle required pursuit of comprehensive wellness and well-being principles starting with the brain.

    Speaking on the event’s theme, “Surveying Safety; Health and Well Being of a Surveyor”, Kanu’s lecture focused on wellness aspects of the brain, blood, bladder, bones, bowel and breasts.

    He said care for the brain was important because mental health is the foundation of all wellness, and so professionals must remain healthy physically and mentally for efficiency.

    Kanu said to care for the brain, it must be stimulated through new activities like leaning new hobbies, skills and procedures.

    He called for balanced diet through adequate intake of fruits and vegetables in addition to adequate physical activities through exercise like walking as well as restful sleep.

    “Feed your brain with what I call the rainbow diet,” he said.

    He warned against sleep disorders responsible for high blood pressure and several illnesses, and urged surveyors to ensure that they rest in their sleep by shunning anxiety and worries.

    “Restful sleep is not how long but how well.

    You can sleep but not rest,” he said.

    He reeled out measures and ways to keep the other “Bs” which include bladder, bones, bowel and breasts healthy, but insisted on adequate water intake for proper function of all body organs.

    “Water is very important and can cure and prevent several ailments.

    Drinking water is very good for you.

    Take adequate water with lots of fruits and vegetables.

    “Alcohol is adultrated water, I advise you take pure water,” he said.

    The doctor encouraged all attendees at the event to drink the water served while warning against excessive consumption of salt and processed foods responsible for increasing cases of cancer, heart and kidney diseases.

    “Be very careful when you take high-class meals that cause high-class diseases,” he said.

    Kanu called for regular check ups in addition to exercise, especially walking, to keep all body parts in good function and shape.

    He said that “body mass index should always be less than 23”.

    She emphasised that LUTH was doing it free of charge.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that departments present at the medical outreach included Dental, Opthamology, Vital Signs, Pharmacy, Family Planning, Medical Consultation among others.

    Breast Cancer: LASG cautions women against late presentation, irregular checks

    Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has advised women to make their health a priority especially by regularly checking their cancer status.

    Represented by the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Health Service Commission, Dr Eniayewun Ademuyiwa, Sanwo-Olu gave the advice at the 57th Annual Scientific Conference of the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of Nigeria (AMLSN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

    He said that the women should take their health seriously by eating healthy foods and going for regular medical checkups and screenings.

    He explained that regular screening and early detection were key to survival of cancer, adding that people should refrain from living in self-denial.

    He, therefore, reiterated the commitment of the state government toward treatment and eradication of oncological diseases like cancer.

    “Presently, there is well equipped diagnostic centre at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) and Lagos State General Hospital where people can go to do cancer diagnosis of any kind.

    “Unfortunately, some people with cancer lived in self-denial only to present the case and seek medical intervention late when the situation had become complicated.

    “The best way to avert the consistent and continued pattern of cancer claiming lives is early detection through regular check-up.

    “Early detection increases the chances of survival and preserves many more lives,” Sanwo-Olu said.

    A Consultant Oncologist at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Dr Muhammad Habeebu, said that lack of adequate knowledge and awareness among women was a major contributing factor to increasing incidences of breast cancer cases.

    Habeebu, however, decried the poor attitude of Nigerians to health issues.

    According to him, the increasing rate and spread of killer diseases in Africa has made it necessary that Nigerians cultivate health maintenance culture.

    “There is urgent need to encourage women in Nigeria to be breast cancer awareness so that they will see the need to carry out regular cancer screening and breast self-examination.

    “Participating in screening programmes is also  vital to ensure that cancer is detected early, and you have the best chance of early detection, treating and surviving.

    “To improve survival for breast cancer in patients will require concerted effort to change the attitude of our patients and put up necessary infrastructure and insurance,” he said.

    Earlier, the Chairman of AMLSN, Mr Olumide Fadipe, called for increased collaboration with medical laboratory scientists to enhance their scope of diagnostics.

    Fadipe said that governments and stakeholders could partner with the laboratory scientists to secure the equipment for cancer diagnosis, which were capital intensive.

    “There is need to enhance the scope of laboratory diagnosis through equipment provision and adequate funding such that all cancer diagnosis and treatment can be done within the country.

    “The idea is to reduce capital flight and the rate at which people travel out of the country for cancer diagnosis and treatment,” Fadipe said.

    The Vice-Chairman of Ikeja Local Government, Mr Yomi Mayungbe, reiterated the commitment of the local government to create grassroot awareness about breast cancer.

    Mayungbe said with the proposed awareness programmme, more women would have better knowledge about how, where and when to go for cancer checks.

    LUTH at 60: Physiotherapist tasks health workers on good posture

    Rotimi Kareem, a doctor of Physical Medicine at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH),  on Wednesday urged health workers to always maintain good postures to enhance their health.

    Kareem delivered a lecture titled, “Postural Challenges: Barrier to Productive and Active Service Life’’ , organised by LUTH.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the lecture is the first in the series of lectures  to celebrate LUTH at 60. The therapist noted that the complications and consequences of poor postures were detrimental to the wellbeing of health personnel.

    He identified some of them as: low back pain, increased disability among workers, spinal joint dysfunction, degenerative joint diseases and pot belly among others.

    He said: “Our active life today is public service, our body must align or respond well to the force of gravity.

    “We must imbibe the culture of repositioning ourselves well, when we are not well positioned and when we  carry out our various duties.

    “Posture is everything about our life as humans whether we are sitting, standing or sleeping because they all reflect different postures.

    “The benefits of good posture helps to reduce risk of joint pain, stress reduction, it enhances confidence among others.

    “It is important that as we care for others, we should also care for ourselves, so that we will not fall victim of the same sickness our patients are going through,” he said.

    Prof. Chris Bode, the Chief Medical Director of LUTH, said the lecture was very paramount to the wellbeing of staff members.

    Bode, represented by Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee, Prof. Wasiu Adeyemo, said it was very vital for health workers to be fit to carry out their duties effectively.

    “If you are not fit, you cannot take care of your patients, we care about our staff, that is why we came up with this first lecture which has to do with our health,” he said.

    “More lectures that will be of help to our personnel will come up in the course of the LUTH@60 celebration,” he said.

    Radiologists seek govt, private sector investments in ‘interventional radiology’

    A professor of Radiology, Abiodun Adeyinka, has urged the Federal Government and private sector to invest in ‘Interventional Radiology’ to boost modern medicine practices in Nigeria.

    Adeyinka, a consultant radiologist, College of Medicine, UCH, Ibadan, made the at the 2022 faculty day celebration by the Faculty of Radiology, National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria, on Monday, in Lagos.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the theme of the programme is: “Role of Interventional Radiology In Modern Medicine In Nigeria”.

    He described interventional radiology as a sub-specialty in radiology that performs various minimally-invasive procedures that diagnose, treat and cure many kind of conditions using medical imaging guidance such as X-rays, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or ultrasound.

    Adeyinka,the key speaker at event, said that interventional radiology had not replaced surgery but provided a less invasive way of doing some surgical procedures that would had kept patient in the hospital for about three to four weeks.

    According to him, with the interventional radiology the surgical procedure is done on a daily basis and achieves the same result as surgery and the patient leaves the hospital within some hours.

    He said that interventional radiology remained the best medical offer a patient could get because “it is an advancement in the medical practice.

    ” “Instead of an open surgical operation, the interventional radiology can be used to give a permanent cure to fibroids, cancer and cardiac conditions.

    “It can be used to stop the supply of blood to fibroid tumor in women and once the tumor no longer gets blood, it shrinks and dies.

    “But where we are having problems is in the area of equipment; the materials and equipment used in interventional radiology are quite expensive.

    “That’s why we need government as well as private sector to come in and provide or subsidise the cost of some of the equipment,” he said.

    Adeyinka, therefore, urged government to make it easier for the equipment to be imported into the country by reducing or totally removing the excessive tariffs placed on them at the ports.

    “There are some of our partners abroad that want to donate some of the equipment to Nigeria but due to high tariffs, they are stocked there at the port.

    “There are just about 19 centres in Nigeria that have interventional radiology.

    Even if government can’t provide the equipment, at least it can create the enabling environment for the equipment to easily enter the country,” Adeyinka said.

    The Faculty Chairperson, Prof. Rachel Akinola, identified consumables and manpower as major challenges that limit the adoption and practice of interventional radiology in Nigeria.

    Akinola, also a consultant radiologist, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), said there were limited number of trained professionals to handle interventional radiology in Nigeria.

    In her speech of welcome, Akinola,  also lamented that the few available trained professionals were leaving the country to practice abroad.

    She, therefore, called on the government to intensify efforts not only to train professionals on interventional radiology, but to retain the already trained doctors and medical professionals.

    Another consultant radiologist, Dr Caleb Yakubu, said the essence of the programme was to sensitise and educate the general populace on the relevance of radiology in medical operations.

    Yakubu, also the Coordinator, One-Stop-Breast Clinic, Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), said the objective was to educate the public on ways to benefit from the modern medical advancements that were evolving.

    He emphasised the need for women to go for cancer screening with the aid of mammography machines.

    Yakubu added that government ensure provision of the machines in states and federal hospitals across the country.

    “The key to effective management of cancer is early detection.

    And eight out of every 10 Nigerian women has breast cancer.

    And the type of breast cancer they have is very aggressive and they are presented late.

    “So, let government provide mammography machines in all government hospitals and make them readily available, accessible and affordable so that Nigeria women can easily be screened for cancer,” he said.

    A retired consultant radiologist, Prof. Gbadebo Olusegun, urged the Federal Government to do everything possible to stop the increasing brain drain and medical tourism among the Nigerian citizens.

    According to him, setting up functional and equipped interventional radiology centres with trained professionals will help to curb medical tourism and brain drain in the country.

    “Unfortunately, hard times are here, where we are confronted with massive brain drain of medical professionals and unimaginable foreign exchange bastardisation.

    “If people can get in Nigeria the same quality of healthcare they seek abroad, they will have no reason to travel to another country.

    “This will also conserve foreign exchange and save capital flight,” Olusegun said.

    LUTH @60: we have many reasons to celebrate our modest achievements- CMD

    Prof. Chris Bode, Chief Medical Director (CMD), Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, says the institution has several reasons to celebrate its modest achievements on its 60th anniversary.

    Bode made this known on Monday in Lagos at the opening ceremony marking LUTH’s 60th anniversary.

    He said that the institution had, over the years, remained one of the best hospital in Nigeria.

    “A major breakthrough of the successful conception and delivery of the first authentic test tube (In-Vitro-Fertilisation) baby was performed by the duo of Prof Frank Giwa-Osagie and Prof Oladapo Ashiru.

    “LUTH has the highest concentration of skilled medical and paramedical staff in different areas of medicine.

    “LUTH also boasts of a comprehensive Diagnostic Centre and VIP Clinic, state of the art Laboratories, Radiotherapy and Renal Dialysis facilities.

    “From a humble beginning of 330 beds, LUTH today, is the largest Teaching Hospital in Nigeria with over 1000 beds and with the College of Medicine of the University of Lagos,” he said.

    The CMD said that LUTH had trained hundreds of medical, dental, pharmacy and other allied health science students and produced thousands of nurses, laboratory scientists among others.

    He said that LUTH was a unique institution in not only having such a large catchment population but also having a large concentration of highly specialised manpower.

    He said the manpower enabled it to respond to a variety of health conditions and training since 1962, contributing in no small way in the training of medical and paramedical personnel.

    Bode said that LUTH was the only federal teaching hospital with its independent power project that generated its own electricity.

    He said that a new complex, comprising five buildings of four floors each to house 256 consultation rooms, 16 waiting areas, 16 nursing stations, eight meeting rooms and many other facilities, was presently under construction.

    According to him, LUTH has grown from a 500-bedded hospital to 760-bedded facility, and then to more than 1000-bedded hospital serving more than 25 million people in Lagos and its neighbouring states.

    “Recently LUTH played a very significant role in stemming the tide of COVID-19 pandemic.

    As we look to the future, we must reflect on the past 60 years and imagine what LUTH shall be at its centennial in another 40 years.

    “There will always be challenges, let us focus on the celebration, life is full of challenges, but we are here to rise to surmount the challenges,” he said.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that LUTH @60 logo was also unveiled immediately after the opening ceremony.

    NAN also reports that there will be series of events spread over three months in celebration of LUTH @60.

    Osibogun warns on exodus of medical specialists, urges govt action

    Prof. Akinsanya Osibogun, President National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria, on Saturday, raised the alarm on the exodus of specialists from the country.

    He urged government at all levels and medical stakeholders to formulate strategies and policies that could stem the tide and retain them in the country.

    Osibogun, a professor of public health, spoke at a media conference on the 16th Annual Scientific Conference and Fellows’ Congress, organised by Post Graduate Medical College Fellows’ Association, in Lagos.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the conference, tagged “Ekoakete 2022”, is slated for Aug. 8 to Aug 12.,  with the theme: “Strengthening The Health System in The Midst of a Pandemic”.

    He said that governments and stakeholders needed to take action because some factors were attracting the specialists outside the country.

    “Till date, this college has produced about 8,000 specialists for this country, but they are relocating outside the country.

    “Even though the college is producing large number of specialists for the country, the current situation in Nigeria is causing a lot of brain drain in the health system.

    “Brain drain is affecting not only the specialists, but also the junior doctors in various hospitals,” Osibogun said.

    He said that at the college, strategies were put in place to wrap up the production of quality specialists for the services of the country.

    “One of the strategies that the college adopts to ensure the quality of specialists is to promote continuous medical education.

    “Annually, we have this scientific conference to provide opportunities in exchange of medical scientific knowledge“At this conference, all our fellows who have been involved in research will bring forward their findings in order to dictate the new direction of treatment of patients in hospitals.

    “It will also ensure that fellows are up to date in their profession practice by being aware of the latest developments in healthcare delivery,” Osibogun said.

    He said that the college was the highest institution responsible for the training of medical specialists.

    The college, he said, has the responsibility of ensuring that Nigeria has quality specialists in all medical areas, to cater for the health needs of Nigerians.

    Prof. Ajibola Jeje, Consultant Urologist, Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), said that they were expecting more than 500  medical fellows to attend the conference.

    He said they were expected to come in from within and outside Nigeria.

    Jeje, also the Chairman, Organising Committee for the conference, said the theme was carefully chosen.

    He said this was in order to address and find solution to the current health situation in Nigeria and face the future.
