Straight from the heart 
Krishan Kumar in conversation with Dr KK Aggarwal
 
Krishan Kumar: The earlier medical days of Dr KK Aggarwal.
 
Dr KK: Krishan, now a days, there is a lot of mistrust between patients and doctors. Was it there in your era also?
Krishan: No, during my PG and early post PG days we had very cordial relationship with our patients. We used to get full respect from the patients and we used to take decisions on their behalf. There was no question of any violence. But why are you asking this question?
 
Dr KK: Today when we cross the ICU corridors, relatives do not get up. And when we enter the room of the patient, the relatives talk to us sitting on the sofa. We do not get the same respect you are talking about. 
Krishan: But during our times most of the hospitals in private were trust non- profit hospitals and not profit making corporate hospitals. That perception that the hospital is not-for-profit was sufficient for the public to trust the hospitals and their billing. Also, in 1995, full one week treatment in ICU for a heart failure patient was Rs 12000/- only.
 
Dr KK: But why are the patients are violent today? What was in your era that this violence was missing?
Krishan: In our time, there were no mobile smart phones and internet services right at our hands. The patient was dependant on information provided by us. Today your patients are well-informed and want to be a part of treatment unlike our times when we used to take their decisions.

Memory loss can occur at a young age
Stress and unhealthy lifestyle found to be major contributing factors
 
New Delhi, 09 May 2017: According to a recent study by Georgia Tech University, an average person's memory declines by as much as 40% between the age of 30 and 65. This is even more pronounced in the "golden years". Many studies show that a person starts experiencing significant memory loss each year starting at the age of 30. This, coupled with loss of brain function, can pose a lot of problems for an individual.
 
Young people are increasingly complaining of forgetfulness and memory lapses. Be it not remembering names, faces, important dates, appointments, and conversations or forgetting where important things have been kept, stopping mid-sentence, and experiencing brain fog, the warning signs of declining memory and brain function are many. What was once associated with old-age is now gripping the younger generation as well.
