Weight Loss Apps: Don’t Waste Your Money

J. Shah, a bariatric physician and medical director of Amari Medical in New York . Studies show that keeping a food journal can help people watch their weight by helping them to take stock of what they consume. (MORE: South by Southwest: Will Collecting Data on Your Body Make You Healthier? ) Shah admits, however, that some of his patients are more comfortable with digitally-based methods, and recommends certain apps to select patients. The most effective ones for weight loss, he says, include more detailed information about what people are eating, such as how many calories are coming from protein versus sugar, and also encourages physical activity through goal setting, drinking water and getting enough sleep.

Weight loss pills? Watch it!

SUPi33

If your doctor prescribes a weight loss medication, ask if there is a risk of dependence. The Garcinia Cambogia Extract majority of weight loss pills are designed to suppress your appetite, so you eat less and consume fewer calories. Over time, you will lose weight. However, this type of calorie deprivation disrupts your metabolism, and your rate of weight loss might slow down as a result. Meanwhile, a slower metabolism will eventually make you gain weight. Seizures, dizziness, strokes, heart diseases and even death could occur from taking weight loss pills with ephedra.

Demian Maia And The Beauty Of Jiu-jitsu

One of the beautiful and simple wrinkles of Maia’s guard game is that he will gladly abandon his grips to kick out and attack a single-leg takedown from the bottom position. In the first minute of his bout with Jacare, Maia released his grip on Jacare’s left arm from a butterfly guard in order to kick out and attack Jacare’s right leg with a single-leg takedown. Jacare is in Maia’s butterfly guard, and Maia is attacking Jacare’s left arm with both hands. As Jacare retracts his left arm, Maia pushes it out and kicks his own left leg out behind him, attacking Jacare’s right leg while his hands are out of the way. Maia gets to his feet with Jacare’s leg, but Jacare’s takedown defense is too strong. The majority of the bout, however, was spent with Maia on Jacare’s back after another successful X-guard kick-out to standing. Just as with Gonzaga, Maia under-hooked Jacare’s leg, kicked him out into X-guard and followed Jacare up to his feet, keeping Jacare’s leg off of the floor.

Sleep Disorders, Attention Problems Linked

A 1/3 misdiagnosis rate is enough of a reason to look more closely for sleep disorders. In those who didn’t have primary sleep disorders, just under 90% met the criteria for at least one measurable sleep problem. Researchers identified four different groups based on sleep abnormalities. They were: Group 1: Slower to get to sleep, delayed Rapid Eye Movement (REM), lower percentages of stage 2 and REM sleep; Group 2: More frequent awakenings; Group 3: Longer total sleep time, less delayed REM sleep, higher percentage of REM sleep, lower percentage of wake time; Group 4: Shortest total sleep time, highest percentage of wake time after sleep onset. Researchers concluded that doctors need to routinely screen for sleep disorders when considering an ME/CFS diagnosis, and that they should use sleep studies to identify sleep problems and tailor treatments to the specific groups. What kind of sleep problems do you have? Do you think one of the above groups describes you?
For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://chronicfatigue.about.com/b/2013/07/19/sleep-disorders-in-chronic-fatigue-syndrome-2.htm

Average scores dropped from a 12 to around 3 on a scale of 0-24, with 24 being the most severe rating. The same group reported improvement in attention deficit scores from 17 to a score of 10, a significant change according to the researchers. In addition, nine of the 16 patients with possible or probable attention deficit disorder, based on having moderate to severe attention deficits scores, improved their attention scores after CPAP. In an interview with WebMD, Risk says sleep apnea is “highly correlated” with attention deficit disorder and that treating apnea can improve attention deficit. However, some apnea patients may continue to have attention deficit problems after CPAP due to “anxiety, depression, or other disorders,” he says. Risk and colleagues also studied smaller groups of people with insomnia. “For those with severe insomnia, we found a high prevalence of anxiety, depression, and neuromuscular disease, such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and neurological disorders,” he says.

Open Up On Mental Health, Kathleen Sebelius Tells Forum In Kc

Sitcom creator plays back his youth on a The Goldbergs But few sitcoms have been more autobiographical than The Goldbergs, which draws on the childhood and high-decibel domestic life of Adam Goldberg, who grew up to be an actor, director and producer but before that, as this show reveals amusingly, was a pint-sized videographer, capturing the high jinks of his home life as a preteen with his familys shoebox-sized VHS camcorder. Sloppy oversight in Kansas on taxpayer incentives Kansans deserve a fair taxation policy enforced in the state and should expect vast improvement by the agency.

I think for many kids its [college is] the first time leaving home. Its their first time being on their own, so they may be a little bit homesick; they might miss their family; they may not have the family supports in place that they would normally be able to check in with, so theres some new coping mechanisms that come into place, she said. LaTanya Scott, freshman accounting and business management major, agreed with Thomas conclusion. Thats probably true. During the beginning of the year, just being in a new place and around new people that you dont really know, its kind of hard not to be feeling some type of way.

Best Skin Care: What’s In That Cream You’re Putting On Your Face?

Popular Japanese Skin Care Brand Arrives in the United States

This barrier prevents water from evaporating from the skin allowing the skin’s water content to rise. It actually decreases the appearance of fine lines on the face and body caused by dehydration. While petrolatum has received some bad press recently, the bottom line is that it is hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic (does not clog pores) and nonacnegenic (does not cause acne). Its major drawback is its inherent greasiness. Other options do exist, however, and some manufacturers have substituted other ingredients to replace it.

Now, ‘paper-clip’ Implant To Treat High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure Drugs

The ROX coupler is a small metal stent made of nitinol which when deployed, acts like a ‘paper-clip’ joining an artery and a vein together in the groin area. This allows blood to flow between the high pressure artery and the low pressure vein. The Coupler is inserted and put in place via key-hole procedure at the groin under local anaesthesia. Doctors at Glenfield Hospital, on the outskirts of Leicester, UK, used the device successfully on a 56-year-old male patient during an operation on September 16.

Blood Pressure: How to Treat Hypertension Naturally

Exercise Regular physical activity can lower your blood pressure as much as 10 points. The current recommendations for physical activity suggest 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise five to six days per week. If you havent been active recently, start slowly and build up to this amount of exercise. Your doctor can work with you to design an activity plan that will work for you. Diet There are many ways to change your diet to reduce your blood pressure. The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) Diet is one approach to help decrease blood pressure. Following this diet can reduce blood pressure by 14 points. This diet is high in vegetables, fruits and whole grains and low in dairy and saturated fat. Decreasing your salt intake can also be helpful for some people. It can lower blood pressure as much as to 8 points. Salt should be limited to 2,300 milligrams per day. However, some people may need to reduce this further, to 1,500 mg per day. Decreasing the amount of caffeine you drink can also help lower blood pressure. Caffeine has been shown to temporarily increase your blood pressure. The long term effects of caffeine on blood pressure are unknown.

Hormone therapy in the 50s not linked to memory loss

Government panel: Hormone therapy ‘not recommended’

Hot flashes are a symptom of menopause for which some women may seek treatment with hormone replacement therapy.

Researchers found that women between the ages of 50 and 55 years old who took estrogen or estrogen with progesterone performed just as well on tests that measure memory problems as women of the same age who took a placebo. “Our findings are that we didn’t see any long term impact on cognitive function,” said Mark Espeland, the study’s lead author, from the Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Previous studies had found that women 65 years old and older suffered lasting memory problems when they used hormone therapy to treat symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness and trouble sleeping. Imaging tests even found that the brains of those older women assigned to hormone therapy had become smaller, compared to those who took a placebo. Currently, the government-backed U.S.

Manning wants hormone therapy in prison. Will it happen?

As with combination therapy, the risk of fractures is lower, but there is an increased risk of stroke, gallbladder disease, deep vein thrombosis and urinary incontinence. “Another apparently paradoxical finding is that estrogen and progestin impart a small increase in the risks for developing and dying from breast cancer, whereas estrogen alone appears to slightly reduce these risks,” according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force document outlining the draft recommendations. Researchers detected the lower risk of breast cancer after 11 years of follow-up; those findings and other data were enough to trigger a new look at hormone therapy research, Bibbins-Domingo said. “It’s not that the findings are new,” said Crandall, who is not part of the task force. “But they give a practical sense about how to counsel someone about the rare but serious harms of taking hormone therapy.” The new recommendations are based on a review of data, published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine, covering nine clinical trials over the last decade. The standard of care shifted for many doctors after the Women’s Health Initiative trial was halted, but updated recommendations from the task force are important because many patients still have questions, and many doctors are reluctant to let go of old prescribing habits, Crandall said.

I hope that you will support me in this transition. Right now, Army policy suggests theres a lot of space between requesting hormone therapy and actually receiving it. At the same time, recent case law might make Mannings argument a bit stronger, after other inmates have successfully petitioned their facilities for treatment. Manning was sentenced to serve 35 years at Fort Leavenworth Prison, a military prison in Kansas. A spokeswoman for the facility has already told the Today Show thatthe Army does not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery for gender identity disorder. In response, Mannings lawyer, David Coombs, told the same program that, If Fort Leavenworth does not, then Im going to do everything in my power to make sure they are forced to do so. If Coombs does seek legal action, it wouldnt be unprecedented. The United States Bureau of Prisons recently faced challenges to its policy of only providing hormone therapy to an inmate if that person had received such care prior to incarceration. Where inmates have been denied care, courts have said thats unconstitutional, says Jennifer Levi, director of the Transgender Rights Project at Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders.

Can hormone therapy help protect the brain?

October 25, 2012 at 10:47 | Report abuse | Reply MCR This has been known for a while and I still find both media and health professionals trying to deny this evidence, promoting instead the idea that HRT is “unnatural”. Any woman with a family history Alzheimer’s should be taking a very serious look at HRT as a preventative measure. October 25, 2012 at 14:09 | Report abuse | Reply WS Its good to see a better and more balanced study on hormone therapy. Hormone (testosterone) replacement for men doesnt seem to be questioned like it is for women. This is just indicative of the gender bias in health care. Ironically though women are more likely to need hormone replacement since 1 in 3 has a hysterectomy by age 60 and 1 in 2 by age 72, most of which are unwarranted.

Health reform’s hard sell: State’s diverse middle class

The penalty rises to $695 per individual, $2,085 per family, or 2.5 percent of income in 2016. The consequences for organizations that received outreach grants ranging from $300,000 to $1.25 million each do not include immediate penalties for poor performance. They do include an additional $3 million in reserves that Covered California plans to use as bonuses for organizations that produce exceptional numbers. To document specific contacts, Hicks said the outreach organizations will receive information cards about the size of a palm. The organizations will report to Covered California the number of cards that have been distributed to people, who will presumably fill them out and send them to an enrollment center address provided. If the person has the time and inclination, the outreach worker will fill the card out with them and forward it to Covered California so an enrollment counselor can follow up.

Getting mental health management on track: Editorial

Louisiana chose Magellan for the privatization effort in 2011. At the time, there were about $100 million in annual claims for tens of thousands of Medicaid recipients in Louisiana, according to DHH. The new system was expected to expand to cover about 150,000 people, including 50,000 children, through additional federal matching money. The state pays a per-patient fee to Magellan, and the firm is responsible for building a statewide network of providers.

Mental Health Care as a Humanitarian Response

However, many primary care professionals are under-equipped to deal with these needs, leaving symptoms go untreated, and the increased potential that individuals, families, and communities are unable to rejoin society in a meaningful and productive way. Fortunately, the WHO guidelines emphasize the need for integrating and understanding reactions to extreme stress and trauma in primary care. For survivors of psychological trauma and their mental health care providers, this increasingly comprehensive set of guidelines is essential. The WHO guidelines are also an important next step in advancing access to mental health care in places of great need across the globe.
