Painful Demise Of Eric Arubayi; Dangers Of Self Medication.

Painful Demise Of Eric Arubayi; Dangers Of Self Medication. Even the learned make mistakes sometimes so when it comes to health and safety measures, we can never overemphasized.

Legendary gospel singer and 2nd runner up of the maiden edition of the West African idol Eric Arubayi during the weekend passed in a hospital in Delta state following a brief illness.

He was said to have been diagnosed with  malaria and typhoid fever which were left untreated for a while.

His first attempt at treatment happened to be with the use of an expired drug he did not take note of and it worsened his situation. This according to findings triggered a liver ailment and in no time, he was gone.

According to information made available by one of his siblings Derick Arubayi, the gospel artist’s death is caused by an expired malaria treatment he took.

First of all, malaria is NOT a common disease as most people think it to be. And please note also that there are about 4 different types of malaria. This also makes me to believe that it takes a combination of different components of anti-malaria treatment to address each.

But more than that, self medication these days more than anytime else should be avoided as much as possible in other to prevent some of these complications that arise as a result of either the use of wrong medication or an expired one.

Do not forget that in a stressed out world even the learned and most careful are prone to mistakes so where it can be prevented, let us make the conscious effort not to experiment with things we do not have proper knowledge about..

Hospitals are not everyone’s thing myself inclusive but since not everyone has the know how to administer medications, it is more wisdom to consult a physician when our health is challenged. More so that most orthodox medicines come with severe side effects and if you have other complications, it will not be advisable to self medicate.

The good side is information these days is everywhere online at the press of a button so let us make the most of our smart phones.

It is in everyone’s interest to make it a point of duty to read as much as you can about any ailment you are confronted with, and also read everything there is to read about the medications you will take especially if there are no other alternatives and you have to self medicate.

It is a pity and also very disheartening that at the prime of his young life, he has been cut short. More painful is the fact that it could have been avoided should he have known.

He is survived by his wife Chinonso, a son Jayden who by the way is barely 2 years old, 3 Siblings and parents.

We join hands with his family members and a host of his fan club to pray that God grants everyone hurt by his demise a heart to bear the lost and most importantly grant him eternal rest.
