Resisted exercise training improves glycemic control and decreases obesity among type II diabetic subjects is the core of this study. Fasting blood sugar is widely used as diagnostic criteria in type II diabetes. This research where experimental subjects between 30-60 years of both sex have undergone specific exercises using Physioball, with a duration of 12 weeks, 5% drop in waist circumference and fasting blood sugar. As with encouraging results, this RET means can be considered in the comprehensive diabetic management.

Abstract:Background: Bleeding of the digestive tract in elderlies must provoke a significant deterioration to patient in a crisp stable condition. Capsule endoscopy provides excellent visualization of the small intestine, is well tolerated by patients, and is safe. Our interest is to present the use of well-known techniques that exist today in every hospital used in combination to treat cases that otherwise would need a greater and extensive surgical intervention. Methods: A patient was admitted to the surgery department from the emergency room with symptoms of melena for the last two days. After 48 hours enteroscopy and colonoscopy were performed and no pathology was found. Under general anesthesia and supine position, insufflation of the abdomen was performed trough a Veress needle inserted in the upper left quadrant. Three trocars were inserted in the right abdomen in the same time, from the abdomen were movilizated the omentum and the transverse colon to the upper abdomen, when the scope entered to the Treitz the gastroenterologist placed the scope curved in a right angle. Results:  After recognizing the polyp, we kept the intestine with the graspers without any movement to facilitate the excision of the polyp by the gastroenterologist.  The polyp was more than 7 millimeters and was excise using hot snare. After 6 month follow-up the patient doesn’t suffer from bleeding and remains with stable hemoglobin. Conclusions: Using the laparoscopy as a method of roll up the gut to bring the pathology to the endoscope eye appears as an excellent tool for treatment.
Key-words: endoscopic; laparoscopic;digestive-tract; case-report.

Author Details: Rekha Nianthi, K.W.G-Department of Geography, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka

Some years the erratic weather (dry) has affected a higher percentage of the agriculture farming community in Northern, Eastern, Uva and North Central provinces in Sri Lanka. Droughts can severely impact on human, natural environment, animal, agriculture and water resources. In the case of paddy production in Sri Lanka, if Maha rainfall is lower than the mean values, it effects on the paddy production not only in Maha but also in the preceding of Yala cultivation seasons. In Sri Lanka drought is frequently occurring in the Dry Zone areas with lack of rain water in particular cultivation seasons and years. The 2013/2014 drought has seriously damaged the agricultural production (specially the paddy production) in both Yala and Maha cultivation seasons. Over one million people in Sri Lanka have been severely affected by the drought in 2013/2014 for many districts in the Island. The Medirigiriya Divisional Secretariat (DS) of Polonnaruwa district has been one of the worst affected districts.  Water levels of the many tanks have been declined. Paddy farmers have been faced economic hardships situation due to this drought. The main objective of this study was to examine the impacts of drought on paddy farmers. To study the adaptations practices of paddy farmers for drought, and how they are going to face for the same incidences in the future is also studied. This paper examined the perceptions of drought among paddy farmers in two villages using in-depth interviews with paddy farmers and focus group discussions with relevant officers. The field visit has been conducted in the month of October 2014. This drought has impacted to the agriculture, water resources, drinking water and food, environment, and household income. This study also examined how subsidies are distributed to victims, adaptations practices of the farmers, and future suggestions to mitigate the drought.
