Scientific System of Medicine
Dr KK Aggarwal
The practice of medicine is an art based on science. Today, evidence-based medicine has become the norm in clinical practice. Application of evidence-based medicine in day to day practice means relating individual clinical signs, individual clinical experience with the best scientific evidences obtained by the clinical research.
 
Scientific system of medicine evaluates any health practice, product, based on the scientific evidence available. Scientific system of medicine takes into consideration all of the scientific evidence in their entirety. It also takes into consideration prior scientific plausibility or prior likelihood, whether that treatment is a valid treatment and is effective, when evaluating health or scientific claims or assertions, which evidence-based medicine does not.
 
Any pathy can have treatment at any level of evidence.
  • Level I: Evidence from a systematic review or meta-analysis of all relevant RCTs (randomized controlled trial) or evidence-based clinical practice guidelines based on systematic reviews of RCTs or three or more RCTs of good quality that have similar results.

Elderly with Type-2 diabetes at high risk of fractures
Poor lifestyle habits can exacerbate this disease
A healthy diet is key in managing the symptoms in those with Type-2 diabetes

New Delhi, 21st September 2017: A study conducted recently has indicated that older adults with Type-2 diabetes have deficits in their cortical bone, which can increase their susceptibility to fractures. Cortical bone is the dense outer surface of bone that forms a protective layer around the internal cavity. Type-2 diabetes can alter the micro-architecture of this bone in the elderly and increase the risk of fracture. The IMA added that Type-2 diabetes is a serious public health problem. With the population of the elderly on an upward trend, this is only likely to increase further. 
 
Diabetes is a life-long disease that affects the way the body handles glucose in the blood. Most people with diabetes have Type-2 diabetes. People with Type-2 diabetes make insulin, but the cells are unable to use it as well as they should. This is known as insulin resistance.
