One of the 10 conditions for parents to seek medical attention, constipation among children is rising and is particularly affecting their self esteem Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 28 May, 2019—(AETOSWire)-- Reem visited Emirates Hospital - Jumeirah (EHJ) – an Emirates Healthcare company and an internationally recognised 100-bed beacon of progress in the region’s healthcare system after her 4-year-old son, Rayan complained of what she believed was diarrhoea. She sought medical attention after she realised something was wrong especially because Rayan was periodically releasing small quantities of loose stools.
On evaluation by Dr Sripradha Sudarsanam, a Specialist Paediatrician at EHJ, Rayan was diagnosed with chronic constipation.
“Many children who suffer from chronic constipation experience leaking of soft stools in their underwear which poses a big problem in their social and emotional dimensions. Because of the unconscious leaks, the children are almost always smelly and are being neglected and isolated in classroom by their peers. The leaky stools are the newly formed stool which trickles down through the hard stools stuck to the intestine. Sometimes vigorous pushing due to urge to defecate can cause a tear in the anal region and cause bleeding as well,” explained Dr Sudarsanam.
According to studies, 30 percent of children are affected by constipation at some point in their lives. When not adequately treated, chronic constipation can lead to haemorrhoids, anal fissures, bowel bleeding and faecal incontinence.
“Children who are improperly toilet-trained and lack fibre intake in their diet often complain of chronic constipation. Parents should ensure that children avoid processed food and eat food rich in fibre, such as fruits and whole grains. They must also monitor their child’s fluid intake and ensure that they drink between 1 to 1.5 litres of water each day,” said Dr Sudarsanam.
Constipation is a vicious cycle, and seeking medical attention at the right time can help avoid further complications in children while also helping their emotional and mental health from deteriorating.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 June 2019-(AETOSWire) In our daily struggle to keep our homes clean and hygienic, the paper towel is the first line of defence. Of the many brands available in the market, many lack the strength, absorbency, or hygienic standards to clean up big spills and stains. Fine Hygienic Holding is proud to announce the release of the latest tool in the battle for better hygiene: the Super Towel Pro, the only paper towel you will ever need again.
For years, paper towels were only suitable to handle small spills and stains, while bigger jobs were reserved for cloth towels and newspaper – but not any longer. The extraordinary strength and resilience of its 3-ply design, coupled with the ultra-absorbency its embossing pattern offers, make this the only towel a homeowner needs to keep a spotless kitchen, tackling any mess while outlasting and outperforming the competition. In fact, thanks to its ground-breaking 4D technology, which utilizes a new chemical engraving technique that was developed to improve critical paper properties such as resistance, bulk, and absorbency, Super Towel Pro can absorb and clean up to four times as much as the competition.
“The Super Towel PRO is the ultimate tool in the fight to keep homes hygienic and healthy, and we look forward to Fine customers everywhere to start experiencing the benefits of its exceptional design, powerful absorbency, and greater hygiene for themselves,” said Andrea Janjua, Chief Tissue Category at FHH. “Our paper towels are a cornerstone of our business, and we have poured our time and efforts into creating a product that is so effective and so reliable that it stands out as the clear choice for consumers across our markets”.
Reusing cloth towels around the kitchen can lead the build-up of unsafe and unhealthy bacteria that ends up on surfaces, plates, cups – and eventually food and drink. The single-use design and Fine’s patented SteriPro technology led to the Super Towel PRO becoming the first and only paper towel to be certified by ISEGA, the prestigious German food and hygiene standards institute.
In addition to its ISEGA certification, the Super Towel PRO has also been certified by the Family Hygiene Institute (FHI) as the only clean and hygiene towel in the world. The FHI, which operates under the patronage of the Medical Wellness Association (MWA), was founded to promote high standards of health and hygiene for products directed at families, and to reinforce these values around the world. *Source: AETOSWire

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 June 2019:( AETOSWire)-- In conjunction with the convening of the preparatory conference for the UN 2019 Climate Summit (COP 25) in Abu Dhabi, the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy announced that the net CO2 emissions of Dubai have decreased by 19% compared to the business as usual (BAU) scenario and 10% below the Carbon Abatement Strategy 2021 target to reduce carbon emissions by 16% by 2021.
The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has been monitoring Dubai’s carbon emission since 2011 through the United Nations’ MRV methodology (Monitoring, Reporting and Verification). This detailed data-centric platform has allowed Dubai decision makers to streamline their strategy and was pivotal to other initiatives and projects such as the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the Green Fund, the World Green Economy Organization (WGEO), Shams Dubai and Electric Vehicles initiatives.
Data for the past few years have recorded a decline in the per-capita annual consumption of electricity and water in Dubai. Per capita annual consumption of electricity has fallen from 13,626 kwh in 2015 to 11.731 kwh in 2018 and is expected to reach 10,538 kwh by 2025. Annual per capita consumption of water has decreased from 38554 IG to 33,565 IG in 2018. It is expected to reach 28,455 IG in 2025.
The UAE recorded an improvement of 60% bringing the per capita emissions to 15.7tCO2 in the last MRV compiled, well below the US ranking of 16.5tCO2 per capita.
“We are honored by these results as we strive to achieve the vision of our wise leadership. Dubai has taken early steps to conserve natural resources, increase the contribution of clean energy, and implement green development plans, consistent with our strategies at the federal and local levels, including UAE Centennial 2071, and UAE Vision 2021. Dubai has been a pioneer in the implementation of programmes and initiatives that contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and its pursuit of a greener future is proving its validity,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
The MRV data infographics is expected to be publicly released during the upcoming World Green Economy Summit taking place in October 2019. *Source: AETOSWire
