Fadlan kala tasho takhtarkaaga in xaalada beerkaaga ay saamaxayso in aad qaadato daawo kasta aad u baahan tahay in aad isticmaasho, midda xiga, daawooyinka dabiiciga la yiraahdo, waa qasab in process la marsiiyo oo kiimiko isku hayso ama xifdiso lagu daro hadii warshad soo martay, marka wax kasta oo ay ku qoran tahay dabiici macnaheeda maahan in aysan dhibaato kaaga imaanaynin, qofka ugu haboon oo kaala talin karane waa takhtarkaaga xaaladaada gacanta ku hayo.

Mida kale waxaad ogaataa, daawooyinka la yiraahdo baruurta ayey gubaan, iska ilaali inaad qaadatid adigoo takhtar kala tashanin, caafimaadkaaga ayay halis ku noqon karaan oo dhibaato hor leh ayay kuu keeni karaan.

Hooyadu maadaama dhiiggeedu uu negative yahay oo macnaheedu tahay, dhiigga ma lahan antigen, cunugeedane uu positive yahay oo macnaheeda antigen leeyahay maadaama aabaha uu isagane positive yahay, waxaa dhici karta, marka ay foolanayso in dhiiga cunuga iyo dhiigga hooyada is gaaraan, taasna waxay keenaysaa in dhiigga hooyada uu weeraro dhiigga cunugga maadaama uu leeyahay antigen hooyada jirkeeda uu san aqoonin, taas waxay keenaysaa in unugyada dhiiigga cunuga inay burburaan, oo cunugga dhiig la'aan iyo in wadnaha uu istaago ay u keeni karto.

Badanaa hooyooyinka cunuga ugu horeeyo wuu u badbaadaa maadaama weli dhiiggooda uusan is gaarin, markii uu dhasho, uurka ku xigo halis ayuu galayaa haddii aysan hooyada qaadanin cirbadaas takhtarka kuu sheegay.

Cirbada waxay hakinaysaa ama joojineysaa, wixii jirka hooyada galay oo weerari lahaa dhiigga cunugga.

Waxaan filayaa in aad fikrad ka qaadatay jawaabta haba iska yaraatee.

Midda kale oo muhiimka ah waa in hooyada dhiigeedu O-ve uu yahay in lagala dadaalo in aysan dhiig yari ku dhicin, sababtane waa in haddii iyadoo dhiigeeda yaryahay foolato, oo dhiig u baahato in lagu shubo, in la helo dhiigga noocaas aad ayuu u yaryahay oo lama heli karo, khaasatan haday ku nooshahay wadan aanan lahayn blood bank.
Caafimaad ayaan ubadkiina u rajaynayaa

? Acute abdomen: A medical phrase doctors use to suggest that peritonitis is present and surgery is likely needed.

? Appendicitis: Inflammation of the appendix, in the lower right colon. Usually, an inflamed appendix must be removed by surgery.

? Cholecystitis: Inflammation of the gallbladder, causing severe right-sided abdominal pain. A gallstone blocking the duct exiting the gallbladder is usually responsible.

? Constipation: Having fewer than three bowel movements per week. Diet and exercise may help but many people will need to see their health care providers.

? Gastritis: Inflammation of the stomach, often causing nausea and/or pain. Gastritis can be caused by alcohol, NSAIDs, H. pylori infection, or other factors.
