Why Do People Riot?

By Adly F. Thebaud Jr., Student
 
In light of the riots that took place in West Baltimore beginning last week, many of us tend to reflect on the causes of such violent behavior. But why the mass pandemonium?  Riots are often due to a form of mass psychology in which people want to feel part of a larger group and some then resort to violent behavior.

When we think about Alzheimer’s Disease, we most often think about the memory loss. Though that is the most evident symptom of the disease, many fail to recognize that as the condition progresses, the majority of Alzheimer patients experience other  neuropsychiatric symptoms in addition to the memory loss. One such disturbance that is caused by Alzheimer’s dementia is agitation.

We must realize that communities’ reaction to mental illnesses, the prejudice and discrimination against those who struggle daily with debilitating conditions, is just as much a part of the illness as the symptoms of the disease itself.

Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use sugar. A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes means that your body is no longer producing insulin. Current treatments require patients to inject insulin at least 30 minutes prior to eating, which means that they must follow a strict and regimented dietary schedule. While we have come a long way in the management of Type 1 diabetes, scientists are working hard to develop even better treatments. Here at Medical Research Group of Central Florida, we are participating in these efforts to develop new, faster-acting insulin treatments.

Autism - Learn the Signs

By Adly Thebaud, M.D.
 
Autism Speaks' multi-year Ad Council public service advertising campaign stresses the importance of recognizing the early signs of autism and seeking early intervention services. Recent research confirms that appropriate screening can determine whether a child is at risk for autism as young as one year. While every child develops differently, we also know that early treatment improves outcomes, often dramatically. Studies show, for example, that early intensive behavioral intervention improves learning, communication and social skills in young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

One of the most important things you can do as a parent or caregiver is to learn the early signs of autism and become familiar with the typical developmental milestones that your child should be reaching.

By Adly Thebaud, M.D.
 

Bipolar symptoms

When it comes to mental illness, there are plenty of stereotypes. But in reality, mood disorders can be hard to pinpoint—particularly in people with bipolar disorder symptoms. 

"Chalking it up to moodiness or trouble at work or tiredness is pretty common," says Carrie Bearden, PhD, an associate professor in residence of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and psychology at the David Geffen School ofMedical at UCLA. "The disorder varies in severity."

Here are 10 signs that mood problems may be due to more than a quirky or difficult personality.

Schizophrenia, you Have Options

By Dr Adly Thebaud
 
Schizophrenia symptoms include distorted thoughts and hallucinations. Usually starting in young adulthood, schizophrenia can also cause the sufferer to feel frightened and paranoid. To make a schizophrenia diagnosis, a psychiatrist evaluates symptoms, tests, and medical history, and prescribes medications and possibly psychotherapy (or other types of talk therapy) for proper schizophrenia treatment. New research is helping us understand this disorder better.
