How to use the Doctor is IN

This new feature of TheFilipinoDoctor.com displays a switch panel on your log in page.
On the center of the switch panel, you will find the switches for IN and OUT.

To set your availability for the day, click or tap on either the IN or OUT panel on the switch that you find on your log in page.  This will automatically set all the switches corresponding to every schedule you have for the day.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the day. 

To set your availability for week, click or tap on the link under the panel that reads Set your availability for the week.  This will open your clinics and schedules on the lower part of the current page.  You can now individually set to IN or OUT each of your schedules for the entire week.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the current week. 

All settings for both day and week will reset to “blank” after the day or week is over.

Thank you!

Overview

Severe Vitamin C deficiency is also known as Scurvy and is usually due to a diet that is low in vitamin C. A dietary level of less than 10 mg a day of vitamin C causes overt vitamin C deficiency in adults. Chronic or persistent vitamin C deficiency (3 months or more) can lead to scurvy (See Symptoms).

Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is an anti-oxidant which protects the body from free radicals, helps in the healing of wounds, helps the iron absorption of the body, maintains teeth and gum health, and helps in the formation, repair, and growth of bones, skin and connective tissues.

Vitamin C deficiency is diagnosed based on symptoms and blood tests. X-rays are done in children to check for bone growth impairment.

  • Muscle and joint aches
  • Easy bruising
  • Loss of teeth
  • Mood changes
  • Infants and children suffer from bone growth impairment and anemia
  • Scurvy (Severe Vitamin C deficiency) is manifested by inflamed and bleeding gums, anemia, dry hair and skin, bruising and poor wound healing
Risk Factors
  • Smoking. This increases the vitamin C requirement of the body by 30%.
  • Alcoholism
  • Diet that does not include enough fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Surgery
  • Fever and inflammation
  • Hemodialysis
  • Stress (infection and trauma)
  • Unbalanced diets and those who follow fad diets
  • Elderly who lack variety in their food intake
Commonly Prescribed Drugs

Vitamin C supplements in oral and parenteral form. Excessive intake of Vitamin C (>2 grams in a single dose) may cause pain in the abdomen, nausea, and diarrhea.

Treatment and Management
  • Eat a diet rich in vitamin C such as green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes and citrus fruits.
  • Take supplements containing vitamin C
  • Do not smoke
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • As much as possible, Vitamin C-rich food should be eaten raw since cooking destroys the vitamin C in food
