Many laymen, as well as doctors, confuse two different terms – lactose intolerance and allergy to cow's milk protein (abbreviated ACMP). The following article will explain the difference between them, how they manifest themselves and what their therapy is.
Lactose intolerance is a condition in which the body is completely absent or has very little active enzyme, lactase, which breaks down the lactose (milk sugar) that occurs in milk and dairy products. If this enzyme does not work, then lactose accumulates in the intestines, which in turn leads to a bloated abdomen, pain, cramps and also diarrhea. Lactose intolerance affects approximately 20 % of the population and most Afroamericans and Asians. The alleviation of these problems can be solved by disposing of milk and other products that contain a high proportion of lactose. However, there are dairy products that contain less lactose because it has been broken down already during the production process. These are, for example, kefir, sour cream, whipped cream, hard cheese, etc. It is therefore good to find out what does not cause a person's digestive problems, and can thus continue to consume selected dairy products.
If a person is diagnosed with ACMP, then such an individual is dependent on a strictly dairy-free diet. This means that he must completely exclude milk, dairy products and also products in which traces of milk may appear from his diet (pastries, chocolate, instant meals, etc.). Milk from goats, sheep and other animals must also be omitted, as there is also a risk of an allergic reaction. It can manifest itself in many ways – hives, eczema, abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, or there may be difficulty breathing. ACMP mainly affects infants, but in most cases their allergies disappear within three years. In an adult, such an allergy is rather rare.
It is best to always consult with your allergologist or gastroenterologist to help you determine the right diagnosis and therapy.
Alcohol began to be produced in ancient times, thousands of years BC. Evidence comes, for example, from Mesopotamia, but also from Egypt. At first, alcoholic beverages were created by fermentation of various berries and honey, then vines began to be grown, and finally beer was produced. Nowadays, the selection of alcoholic beverages is really large, which may not be completely healthy.
The Czech Republic is one of the leading consumers of beer, with approximately 144 liters of beer per capita per year (to 2017)! Consumption of wine per capita is approximately 19 l and spirits 7 l. This is then reflected in the health of our population. There are more and more people who are overweight and obese, diabetes, liver disease (liver cirrhosis) and in combination with smoking, cancer can occur more.
It is true that some nutritional recommendations allow daily alcohol consumption – for men 20 g (0.5 l beer / 2 dl wine / 50 ml spirits) and for women 10 g (0.3 l beer, 1 dl wine, 25 ml spirits), but in the context of a healthy lifestyle and the prevention of various diseases, it is better to include alcohol exceptionally. For example, during birthday parties, weddings, etc. If you decide to indulge in a glass, choose drinks with a lower alcohol content (low-percentage beers) and a lower sugar content (preferably dry wines). Hard alcohol is mostly mixed into drinks, so you can intake more energy and sugars from juices, cola drinks, and this is again not ideal.
Alcohol is very energetic – 1 gram of alcohol hides 29 kJ (7 kcal) of energy, which is more than, for example, 1 gram of carbohydrates or proteins (17 kJ / 4 kcal). So if you indulge to yourself 4 pieces of 12° beer in the evening, so you drink 2 liters of beer, you will receive as much energy in a relatively short time as if you just had a big portion of sirloin with dumplings. So it often happens that sober evening drinking increases the daily energy intake 1.5–2 times, which the body then stores in fat mass, because at ten p.m. you probably won't go running a half marathon. Not to mention that you like to eat pickled camembert, pickled sausage, or go to a fast food, which is a big calorie charge for the body.
If you are trying to reduce your weight, the basis is always to abstain from alcohol. You will not consume an excessive amount of energy and alcohol will not inhibit your weight loss or impair regeneration after sports.
In short, it is no sin to indulge in a glass of alcohol at a social event once in a while, but daily consumption is not entirely appropriate if you are trying to live a healthy life and keep fit.
Vitamins are needed in small doses because the body cannot produce them itself, and therefore it is necessary to take them from food. It participates in a number of metabolic reactions and also acts as protective factors against the negative effects of external factors on the organism.
Fat-soluble vitamins (ie A, D, E and K) and water-soluble vitamins (ie vitamins from group B, C) are known. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body in the liver, so at very high doses, there may be an excess of them in the body, which is not desirable. Therefore, people should not take large doses of supplements. Water-soluble vitamins have nowhere to be stored in the body, and therefore there is no risk of any negative effects, for example with higher fruit consumption. However, in both groups there is a risk of negative effects if insufficient intake of these vitamins.
Vitamin A is important for proper vision and immunity. Vitamin D helps build calcium into the bones and generally promotes growth (in children). Vitamin E is a great antioxidant and vitamin K improves blood clotting function. In general, these vitamins can be obtained from dairy products, liver, fish oil, vegetable oil, eggs, vegetables and fruits, but also from other foods in small amounts. Vitamin D can also be obtained by our body from sunlight, but in our climate zone the radiation is not enough to cover daily needs.
There are many vitamins from group B – B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 – folic acid and B12. If your body does not have enough vit. B2 and B6, you may experience cracked corners of the lips or other changes in the skin. Vit B9 alias folic acid is very important. It is important for the proper production of DNA, which is especially necessary during pregnancy so that the fetus can develop properly. Deficiency in general in humans can lead to anemia, as poor quality/ abnormal red blood cells form. In connection with the development of anemia, there is also a lack of vit. B12, which is responsible for well-functioning hematopoiesis. In addition, its deficiency can damage parts of the nervous system and depression or dementia can occur. Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants and immune boosters. Therefore, its increased intake in the winter months is widely recommended to protect the body from disease. In general, these vitamins are again found in both animal and plant products. Only vit. B12 in animal products, therefore vegans are especially endangered by its deficiency.
If you eat a variety, include meat, fish, dairy products, vegetable oils, cereals, legumes, vegetables and fruits, then you are able to cover sufficient doses of vitamins for the body and there will be no deficiency. Dietary supplements are not needed in even healthy individuals.
Nutritional therapist, nutritional specialist or counselor and many other names to identify a person who is concerned with nutrition and is to help others in this area. Unfortunately, it is not an expert like an expert. So how to recognize who is who will hopefully show this short article.
The nutritional therapist is a non-medical health worker who, according to Act 96/2004 Coll. (Act on Non-Medical Health Professions) graduated from a three-year bachelor's program at a university (Bc.) or at a higher vocational school (Dis. – Diplomated nutritional therapist). According to the same law, there is also a nutritional specialist who also completed a two-year master's degree at a university (Mgr.). It is these people who have the highest qualifications in the field of medical nutrition, and you should turn to these professionals if you suffer from problems with obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, celiac disease and other diseases that need dietary adjustment.
Then there is a nutritional counselor, an adviser and many other forms, behind which, however, is not a studied expert, but a person who has established a business on a trade license and advises people based on its own experience, taking courses that can last 2 days, 20 hours, or run online, or may have read everything on the internet. Unfortunately, the Czech Republic does not legislate that these non-experts should in no way advise on nutrition for people who are already ill in some way – like people with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, other metabolic disorders, but especially people with obesity.
In short, on a weekly or weekend course, one does not acquire the knowledge gained over three to five years spent mostly at the Faculty of Medicine, where topics related to anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, clinical nutrition, etc. are discussed in detail. An integral part are also practices in various hospital wards under the supervision of experienced nutritional therapists or nutritionists (a doctor with expertise in clinical nutrition) who pass on valuable information to students. The layman does not have to find out just like that on the course, and in the worst case, it can only hurt its client with bad advice. Unfortunately, these nutritional counselors do not bear any legal responsibility for their actions, unlike a nutritional therapist, who is fully responsible for its work.
But don't even get fooled into various chains of nutritional clinics, where they incorrectly label a person without a title or just with Dis. as a nutritional specialist. So if you are going to visit a nutritional therapist, be sure to find a nutritional therapist with the title of Bc. or a nutritional specialist with the title of Mgr. Always try to find out in which hands you are entrusting your health to.
Vegetarianism and its stricter form of veganism belong to the alternative directions of eating. Vegetarianism is further divided into other subtypes, as lactoovovegetarianism, when you may eat dairy products and eggs, ovovegetarianism, which allows you to eat only eggs but not dairy products, or pescetarianism, when there are allowed fish and seafood. Simply said, vegetarianism is nutritional direction in which is eating meat and meat products completely discarded. Veganism is an even stricter nutritional direction, as all animal products are excluded from the diet, ie meat, fish, dairy products, eggs and honey.
However, there are different risks associated with each alternative diet. If an adult is a vegetarian, he must take care of a sufficient supply of proteins and especially perfect amino acids composition, which our body needs. Essential amino acids (valine, leucine, isoleucine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, lysine, methionine and threonine) are these, which our body cannot make on its own, and therefore must be intaken from food. The best sources are meat, dairy products, eggs, legumes and cereals. If someone eats according to vegetarian principles, they should pay attention to the right combination of dishes – for example use legumes with cereals. There is a risk of high consumption of fiber per day (more than 30 g), which means that you can prevent the absorption of minerals (iron, zinc, calcium). Not to mention that other substances are easily absorbed from animal products than from plant products, see iron. It is certainly not possible to say that this nutritional direction is somehow harmful to the body, it is only important to monitor the intake of certain nutrients and minerals to avoid muscle loss, anemia and malnutrition.
On the contrary, veganism is already a nutritional direction, which experts do not find completely beneficial to the body. If a person becomes a vegan, he is in danger of a lack of minerals (calcium, iron, etc.) over time. In addition, there is a deficiency of vitamin B12, which can be found only in animal products, and its deficiency in the body leads to anemia, peripheral nerve damage, but even depression or dementia. Vegans may also lack vitamin D, which is important for bone mineralization, respectively to prevent osteoporosis (bone thinning).
Vegetarianism and especially veganism are absolutely not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women and especially for children. These population groups need all the essential nutrients and minerals for proper development. It has been proven that a vegan diet can have a negative effect on the development of the brain and body, so children raised in veganism may not achieve such intelligence and growth as its peers, who ate rationally.
So if you decide whether to switch to some type of alternative diet, keep in mind that it is important to monitor your intake of essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins so that your body can still function properly.
Detox alias a favorite word of various celebrities, influencers on social networks and companies that sell fresh juices. Every spring and autumn, a wave of advertisements sweeps at us from various channels, how to cleanse (detoxify) your body with the help of tablets, teas, vegetable juices, etc.
But what will this type of detox do to your body? All of these products promise to cleanse you of toxins, various waste products, cleanse your gut and sometimes even lose a few pounds. It all sounds promising, but the reality is different. In the case of tablets or teas, nothing may happen at all, so you will waste money that you could invest in fresh vegetables and fruits, for example. On the other hand, drinking various juices or detox cocktails all day can have laxative effects. Yes, some would say how well they cleaned their intestines in this way, but the truth is that they have just lost the necessary intestinal bacteria (probiotics), which, among other things, keep our immunity and digestion going well. And when it comes to losing a few pounds, it is clear that after a few acute visits to the toilet, your body will become lighter, you will lose water and minerals, and the body will reach for protein stores, thus reducing muscle.
The body has its own organs for the so-called detox – liver and kidneys. It is the liver that is adapted so that even harmful substances are converted into safer substances in the body, which pass into the kidneys and from there with urine away from the body. In general, waste products leave our body through urine, stool or sweat.
However, if you consume more alcohol, take many medications, that you do not have prescribed by a doctor due to an illness, or in the worst case, take drugs, then of course your liver and kidney function deteriorate. Therefore, it is better to omit alcohol, drugs and medicines to the most necessary ones for the proper functioning of these organs.
The cleansing of the body by the liver and kidneys takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and completely free of charge.
When it comes to vegetables, many people remember their childhood, when their parents forced them to eat broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and others, but they resisted and even now in adulthood they almost do not eat vegetables at all. But it is a great pity. Vegetables do not have as much energy value as, for example, some fruits, meat or dairy products, and therefore they are a great helper in maintaining body weight or a slight reduction, when a person does not want to receive a large amount of energy, but needs to be full.
Vegetables may not be the richest source of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, but we find a large amount of vitamins (A, groups B, C, E, K), minerals (potassium, magnesium) and especially fiber. It is these beneficial substances that are essential for the body to function properly in the long run. In addition, they protect us from various diseases.
Fiber as such affects blood sugar levels, respectively sugar levels do not rise as fast as after a fiber-poor food, and can also have a positive effect on blood cholesterol levels. If we eat high-fiber foods, the digestion time in the stomach increases and we feel fuller for longer, so we don't tend to eat any sweets an hour after lunch. Sufficient fiber intake, ie approximately 30 g per day, has preventive effects against constipation and also before the development of colon cancer, which is unfortunately one of the most common type of tumor that occurs in the Czech Republic. Basically, fiber is a brush that cleanses our intestines from food scraps and then eliminates them from the body in the stool.
Various sources state that the daily intake of vegetables should be at least 300 g, but it can be 500 or 600 g, if person is able to do so. Of course, it is also important to follow a drinking regime so that the amount of fiber ingested can properly fulfill its purpose.
Therefore, you should eat vegetables in various forms and types daily, which you can include with each meal. Your body will be grateful to you in the future.
Fruit is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. We also find carbohydrates in it, more precisely fructose (fruit sugar), which discourages many people because it is a simple sugar. However, this is not a reason to completely avoid eating fruit.
If you indulge in approximately 200–250 g of raw fruit a day, then nothing bad will really happen to your body. On the contrary – you can take in almost a third of your daily fiber needs, cover the need for vitamins, especially vitamin C, which is great for boosting immunity, and give your body other minerals.
The trend is the so-called fresh juices, ie squeezed and subsequently mixed juices from various fruits and vegetables. One would say how human does a very good service to its body when drinks so many pieces of fruit in 0.5 liters, but that is not entirely good. Mixing disrupts almost all fiber in fruits and vegetables, which increases the energy value of fresh juice and also the glycemic index. Simply put, the glycemic index indicates the ability of a food to raise blood sugar levels. If the index is low (below 55), then such a food raises blood sugar levels more slowly. If the index is high (above 70), then it increases the level very quickly. Therefore, people should prefer foods with a lower glycemic index, which also applies to people being treated for type 2 diabetes. For this reason, it is not recommended to consume fruit in the form of fresh juices. It is a calorie and carbohydrate bomb that the body definitely does not need regularly.
As for dried and lyophilised (deep-frozen) fruit, it should be noted that this is a sweeter version of the fruit and therefore should not be included in this form daily / regularly. Of course, treat yourself to it once in a while.
In short, ideally include fruit in your diet daily, but pay attention to the form in which you consume it.
For many years, the consumption of milk and dairy products has been associated with various myths that have failed to be disproved to lay society. So let's talk about what the myths are and where the truth is.
"Milk and dairy products are causing bigger production of phlegm." is a sentence that everyone has heard. The myth became widespread after publishing one study about asthma from
a doctor in the 12th century, in which he claimed that milk increased phlegm production. Today, however, there are new studies from the 21st century that completely rule out this claim. For some people, it may be a subjective feeling of increased phlegm production due to belief in this myth. If you pour a glass of milk and drink it, you will see that the glass is covered with a white film (thin layer). But when you wait a few minutes, the film disappears completely as the rest of the milk flows to the bottom of the glass. It works in the same way in the esophagus, which is briefly covered by this film after consumption, but after a while everything flows into the stomach. However, it is not phlegm.
Another myth is the statement "Consumption of milk and dairy products causes osteoporosis." Osteoporosis is, simply put, thinning of the bones, which carries a higher risk
of fractures. Osteoporosis occurs when calcium and vitamin D intake are insufficient, but it also depends on gender and the age of the individual. Proponents of this false statement say that milk is responsible for decalcification of bones. But this is not true at all, quite the opposite. Milk and dairy products are a rich source of calcium and are well absorbed by the body to the bones.
There are certainly other myths associated with the consumption of dairy products, but the truth is that it is a unique source of beneficial substances for our body. So if you do not suffer from lactose intolerance or are not allergic to cow's milk protein, then you can consume milk and dairy products daily.
As if gluten has become the greatest enemy of a person who wants to lose weight or just live healthily. You can read on the internet that gluten glues together intestines and that consuming gluten is not natural for humans. So let's talk about what gluten is.
Gluten is a storage protein in cereals, so it occurs naturally mainly in wheat, rye and barley. Its name is derived from the word "glue", which has nothing to do with the fact that gluten should glue together our intestines. This is a property that gluten adds to the dough – the quantity and quality of gluten is then reflected in the quality of the flour / dough. Thanks to it, the dough is elastic, rise and the resulting product retains its shape. And that the consumption of gluten is not natural for humans? People have been growing cereals in the fields for thousands of years, so why should it suddenly be unnatural or even harmful. Again, this is a myth that is not scientifically substantiated.
If you do not suffer from gluten allergy, celiac disease or non-celiac sensitivity to gluten, then there is no reason to stick to a gluten-free diet. This will make you lose fiber and minerals. It is, of course, recommended to limit the intake of white bread and replace it with, for example, wholemeal bread, as is the case with pasta and other foods / products, which are largely made up
of normal wheat. You will get more polysaccharides and fiber, which is the goal of a healthy diet.

given the alarming and ever-increasing number of measles-infected patients, we offer you a blood test for antibody levels and, in the case of low values, also vaccinations.
On April 6, 2018, a total of 70 cases of measles were reported in the Czech Republic. Most diseases are recorded in Prague (48 cases), and in the Central Bohemian Region (10 cases). The development of another epidemiological situation in the incidence of measles in the Czech Republic is difficult to clearly anticipate, but an upward trend can be expected. This condition is fully consistent with the development of the epidemiological situation in measles in Europe.
Vaccination against measles spread throughout the world in the 1960s. In the Czech Republic, regular vaccination against measles infection was introduced in 1969, at first with one dose, and from 1975 with two doses of vaccine. However, it is not possible to reliably determine the 100% efficacy of the vaccine over the lifetime.
The blood test will not take you more than 10 minutes of your time, it is not fast. The result is known within a week. If you decide to get a vaccine after consulting a doctor, you can start immediately.
Special price of Blood Test and Vaccination (in case of indication) for members of program PLUS:
Blood test, collection: 980.-CZK
Vaccination : 790 CZK / dose (the doctor's pre-vaccination examination is included)
Special price of Blood Test and Vaccination (in case of indication) for members of program BASIC:
Blood test, collection: 1100.-CZK
Vaccination : 790 CZK / dose (the doctor's pre-vaccination examination is included)
Price of Blood tests and vaccination (in case of indication) for ATODA Medical clients:
Blood test, collection: 1280.-CZK
Vaccination : 790 CZK / dose
Targeted examination by a doctor before vaccination: 800 CZK.
Do not trust the coincidence, make an appointment for the blood tests as soon as possible.
Everyone on our body eventually will discover small skin flaws – freckles, beauty blemishes, various growths, red to brown dots, or enlarged veins. After a thorough dermatoscopic examination, physicians can opt for quick and safe electrocautery surgery, in addition to a common surgical procedure.
Electrocautery is performed in local anesthesia, and it is also possible to use Entonox (an inhalation anesthetic). For a few minutes, it is precisely focused on the problematic manifestation that will destroy it thermally and will not damage the surrounding tissue or vessels. The area of operation does not bleed and heals quickly.
we wish you beautiful Easter holidays and let us remind you that on Friday, 30. 3. 2018 and on Monday, 2. 4. 2018, our offices will be closed.
We look forward to see you again from Tuesday 3. 4. 2018.

In January 2018, six cases of measles disease were reported in Prague - children born between 2002 and 2017, not vaccinated by parents' wishes.
Determining the diagnosis in acute respiratory infections is difficult. The first symptoms are:
and later on the rash.
Measles is infection with compulsory hospitalization at the special hospital department of Infectious Diseases.
Ask ATODA Medical pediatric department about the possibility of vaccinating!
MUDr. Agnieszka Podstolska attended a seminar on Tuberculosis in childhood.
1.11.2010 was abolished the nationwide vaccination against tuberculosis, so vaccinations are no longer taking place in neonatal wards. Only children in a certain risk group will be vaccinated.
Between the 11th and 12th year of the child, tuberculin tests are also not performed and the revitalization at that time has been canceled.
Unfortunately, pediatricians in the Czech Republic point to a gradual return of severe forms of TB in unvaccinated children. Two cases of severe forms of TB were reported in 2011, with 9 severe cases in 2017.
Do you think about the possibilities of vaccinating? Do you want to know the risks and the positive of vaccinations? Make an appointment for a consultation at our pediatric department.
