Christie weight loss surgery successful? Let the photos decide

16 (photo above on right), the answer is yes. The Republican governor stunned the public in May when he announced he had undergone the surgery. The move immediately touched off speculation that he was trying to slim down for the television-driven presidential race in 2016, but Christie insisted the procedure was about his family and his health. On Tuesday, swapping his usual dark suit for khakis and a black polo shirt, Christie and his oldest son, 20-year-old Andrew, greeted onlookers along a stretch of the North Wildwood boardwalk.

She decided to quit and go back to school to get her MBA, followed by a master’s in entrepreneurship, at the University of South Florida. It was an incredibly busy time as a student with a heavy course load who also worked at least 15 hours a week as a graduate assistant to help pay for school. And she worked full-time doing marketing for her father’s software company, Construction Link, which was based out of their home state of New York. She slept little. It is not a schedule she recommends. In whatever free time she found, Ward researched nutrition and fitness.

Just how does ZocDoc grade health insurance plans?

19, 2013 Health agency proposes new abortion regulations Sponsored Links The Associated Press JUNEAU, Alaska Proposed new state regulations would further define what constitutes a “medically necessary” abortion for purposes of receiving Medicaid funding. The proposed change comes months after new regulations took effect for abortion payment conditions. Alaska’s health department last year backed off language that critics said would have restricted the definition of a “medically necessary” abortion for purpose of payment under the Medicaid program. The proposed new certificate to request Medicaid funds features two boxes. A provider would have to certify the pregnancy was the result of rape or incest or the abortion was performed to save the life of the woman.

Health department proposes new abortion regs

At first, the company, which enables people to book doctors appointments online, just said the grades were mostly based on their internal data and other proprietary sources. When I pressed for more details , they said they used appointment booking data, as well as independently-collected data on the accuracy of carriers online doctor directory and access to customer service. Considering that I only planned a brief note about the guide, I thought that sufficed and published a few lines about the new guide . But, the next day, the post attracted a critical comment, maligning, among other things, the guides omission of a methodology section. It seems that comment may not have landed on deaf ears, because on Monday ZocDoc updated its online guide with a brief section explaining how it arrived at its grades . You can see more details on its site, but the company explains that its three grades reflect three metrics: Doctor availability, which measures the availability of appointments with in-network doctors on ZocDoc; Doctor directory, which evaluates the accuracy of a health plans online doctor directory (which ZocDoc determined by calling doctors listed in the directories and verifying the information); and Customer service, which assesses the quality of a carriers customer service line (ZocDoc called the helplines and measured how long it took to speak with an operator and get a reply to the question, How do I find an in-network doctor?).

Exercise not a quick fix for sleep disorders, study says

When you exercise regularly you fall asleep faster. The harder you exercise, the more likely you are to have a good night’s sleep. It doesn’t matter when you exercise, as long as you dont have trouble sleeping. If you do have problems, though, work out earlier in the day. Stress can really decrease when you exercise. When your body works hard, the levels of stress hormones — like adrenaline and cortisol — drop.

Xenopsylla cheopis

Baron said she began looking deeper into the relationship between exercise and insomnia after numerous patients complained to her that despite intense workouts, they werent immediately resting easier at night. It was frustrating for them, she said. For the study, Baron and her fellow researchers analyzed previously published data from a 2010 clinical trial on the connections between exercise and sleep. They looked at the daily activities and sleep logs over a 16-week period for nearly a dozen women, ages 57 to 70, who were wrestling with insomnia. Older women tend to have higher rates of insomnia, which is defined as having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep as well as having trouble functioning throughout the day because of the lack of sleep. The researchers discovered that only after months of persistent exercise the women typically walked on a treadmill several times a week did the patients begin to experience more restful nights. Over time, the women began sleeping about 45 minutes more a night on average.

It is designed to strengthen military-to-military relationships and improve readiness and interoperability between U.S., Egyptian and coalition forces, said Lt. Col. Chris Belcher. In the past, the exercise has included naval force integration, airborne operations, a land field exercise, an explosive ordnance disposal exercise, a strategic air exercise and a command post exercise. The scale of the exercise has varied widely over its history. During the Cold War it could involve many thousands of ground troops, tanks, warships and aircraft.

In the Battle for the Bulging, Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig Lose to the Internet

In hard economic times, more consumers are trying to lose weight on their own, often with the help of free online fitness trackers, the companies say. During a Weight Watchers earnings call this month, the company pointed out competition from the sudden explosion of interest in free apps and activity monitors. The issue with free apps is that theyre taking trial [members] out of the market, explained Weight Watchers chief financial officer, Nicholas Hotchkin. Weight Watchers started offering ActiveLink monitors in 2012 , though theyre available only to members and require an additional monthly fee. The entire weight-loss category is going through a transition during a difficult economic environment, says Edie Burge, aspokeswomanforNestle ( NESN:VX ), which owns Jenny Craig. While we can see that free apps will be appealing to a large section of do-it-yourselfers, we arent aware of any published efficacy to show that those are making an impact. Nestles sales of Lean Cuisine are also down, which Burge blames on the stillchallenging economy. Consumers are sorting out how much theyre willing to pay for healthy convenience, she says.

New Weight Loss Treatments Could Boost Sales at For These Three Biotechs

Empatic completed Phase II clinical trials in January. Orexigen has a big backer, Takeda Pharmaceutical, for the development and commercialization of Contrave in the North America, but the drug will arrive fairly late to the game, considering that Belviq and Qsymia were approved last year. Investors should also remember that Contrave failed FDA approval in 2011 due to concerns regarding heart safety. A Foolish Final Thought In conclusion, the obesity market still has massive potential. The WHO states that the number of obese people worldwide has nearly doubled since 1980. 1.5 billion people around the world are classified as overweight, and 500 million of those categorized as obese. However, manufacturers of weight loss treatments are still struggling to shake off the lasting negative perception that Fen-Phen left with physicians and patients in the 1990s.

There are certain foods that are good for fat burning, some that are good for increasing energy, and some that are great for moving waste through the body. Understanding these different food groups makes a huge difference in how they work within your own diet and can help users burn fat quickly and easily. Fiber and Enriched Grains Fiber is the number one food that helps to boost weight loss. With the right ratio of fiber in the diet, dieters can shed pounds quickly and keep the heart and digestive tract healthy and working properly. Fiber helps move unwanted waste out of the body to help decrease overall weight, remove harmful toxins that can cause bloating and tiredness, and can also help keep your heart in check. Your heart needs whole grains and enriched grains to help keep cholesterol in balance which can lead to a more efficient and healthier heart. Understanding that fiber and grains are necessary is a great step toward starting to eat healthy and truly change your diet.

Health through Breath: App aims to melt away stress

HealththroughBreath_screenshot2

Once you launch for the first time you can watch a YouTube video to see how it works; read extensive tips on inhaling and exhaling (“diaphragmatic breathing” 101); see the parts of the body involved; or simply dive right in with the first set of exercises, which is what I did. Whether you choose Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced or Custom, you’ll see a dial with a line inside that moves clockwise to show you when (and how long) you should be inhaling and exhaling. The more advanced the exercises, the fewer breaths per minute (BPM) you’ll take, plus there’s a retain phase in between inhaling and exhaling. Follow the dial, words and/or audio cues to breath in through your nose and out through your mouth, which will be multiple times through the length of the exercise (by default, it’s 5 minutes). To the right of the dial is an image of a man sitting cross-legged, so you can see which muscles are at work as you inhale and exhale, and the flow of air, too. A section of the app also explains the three “bandhas” for advanced users: Mula Bandha (contracting of the perineum muscles at the base of the torso, the same muscles you contract when stopping the flow of urine), Uddiyana Bandha (the contraction of the stomach) and Jalandhara Bandha (slowly lowering your chin to your chest, while holding your breath). You can tweak the intensity and length of the exercises, select which music style you’d prefer from the five available (and desired volume), whether you want to hear chimes as cues, and so on.

Will Google Revolutionize Health Care?

In a post, Taylor notes that the ACA is mostly not yet implemented, casting doubt on its impact. He also cites several studies indicating that the slowdown has complex origins. One study comes from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), a group of 34 mostly rich nations. Growth in health spending has collapsed in most of its member countries, says the OECD. A global slowdown calls into question Obamacares role. In some countries, says the OECD, acute economic crises have forced steep cuts in government health spending.

Why Cardinal Health is a Top 25 SAFE Dividend Stock (CAH)

CAH+Dividend+History+Chart

This caused fears that staff would suddenly face sharply higher healthcare costs and leave federal service, causing a “brain drain” on Capitol Hill. But Wednesday’s proposed rule from the OPM, the federal government’s human resources agency, means that Congress will escape the most onerous impact of law as it was written. The OPM said the federal contributions will be allowed to continue for exchange-purchased plans for lawmakers and their staffs, ensuring that those working on Capitol Hill will effectively get the same health contributions as millions of other federal workers who keep their current plan. The problem surrounding the Obamacare language for Capitol Hill staff was the subject of intense negotiations in recent weeks between House and Senate leaders and the Obama administration. Some Republicans immediately slammed the OPM decision, using it as fuel for their campaign to turn public opinion against Obamacare just as its core provisions are due to go into effect. “While the administration has handed out waiver after waiver and exemption after exemption for the well-connected in Washington, they have done nothing to lower health care costs for families in Michigan,” said Dave Camp, chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. Camp said the OPM ruling is the “latest proof” of impending failure for the reforms and pledged that Republicans would keep trying to repeal them.

Structure of a Potential Diabetes Drug Target

Diabetes nutrition: Eating out when you have diabetes

These receptors help control many essential cell functions and so are an important target for drugs. GPCRs are subdivided into classes A, B and C. The structures of several class A receptors have already been uncovered. However, the structures of class B receptors, including the glucagon receptor, have largely remained unsolved because of technical difficulties.

Even a small amount of many foods on your plate can add up to a large number of calories. Make substitutions Don’t settle for what comes with your sandwich or meal. For example: Instead of french fries, choose a diabetes-friendly side salad or a double order of a vegetable. Use fat-free or low-fat salad dressing, rather than the regular variety, or try a squeeze of lemon juice, flavored vinegar or salsa on your salad. Ask for salsa or pico de gallo, an uncooked salsa, with your burrito instead of shredded cheese and sour cream. On a sandwich, trade house dressings or creamy sauces for ketchup, mustard, fat-free mayonnaise or fresh tomato slices. Watch the extras Keep in mind that extras, such as bacon bits, croutons and cheeses, can sabotage diabetes nutrition goals by quickly increasing a meal’s calorie and carbohydrate count.

She now wears a pump that continuously streams insulin into her bloodstream allowing her to avoid painful and annoying insulin injections several times a day. She still needs to check her blood sugar first thing in the morning, after lunch, after dinner and before bedtime but her mother recalls checking her blood when Ariel was younger. We had two hand prints the right hand and the left hand drawn on paper and wed keep track of which finger we had stuck. At an age when self-image and fitting in with friends is so important, Ariel says her life is pretty much the same as her friends. You get used to it. I really cant remember not having diabetes so its a way of life for me, she said. The insulin pump is placed in her stomach, thigh or buttock with a catheter connected to a monitor the size of a pager. The pump is relocated every three days but it allows Ariel to swim, jump on her trampoline and live the life of a typical teen.

Type 2 Diabetes? Hypertension? Get Tested for Sleep Apnea!

This is supported by further analysis by Diabetes UK that shows widespread variation on guidance on prescribing test strips, with some areas issuing arbitrary restrictions. Barbara Young, Diabetes UK Chief Executive, said: Test strips are the most basic of tools for managing Type 1 diabetes and insulin-treated Type 2 diabetes so it is very worrying that so many people are telling us they are having their test strips rationed because of cost saving measures. We are glad the Health Minister Anna Soubry has made it clear to GPs that they must prescribe blood glucose test strips to people with Type 1 diabetes in accordance with clinical need. Healthcare professionals also need to be aware that people with Type 2 diabetes who are on glucose lowering medication, including insulin, that can cause hypoglycaemia also need to test their blood glucose levels and its important that people with diabetes are aware of this so that they can challenge GPs that try to ration. We now want to see GPs and healthcare professionals take heed of our report and ensure decisions about blood glucose monitoring and access to test strips are made on a case-by-case basis and in consultation with the person with diabetes and their health care professional. The Department of Health has recently written to all GPs to tell them that people with Type 1 diabetes should not have their access to test strips restricted.

Diabetes pill may have anti-ageing effects

Curious Cat Scared of Socks (Video)

Rafael de Cabo of the National Institute on Ageing in Baltimore , Maryland , US, said calorie restriction in laboratory animals has shown to increase their lifespan. However, the human implications of the study were unclear, the researchers said in the journal Nature Communications. Metformin is a widely prescribed treatment for type-2 diabetes, which occurs mainly in people above the age of 40. It is also used to treat metabolic syndrome, a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. Earlier work has shown that metformin can extend the lifespan of simple organisms like worms, but studies in flies and mammals have given conflicting evidence. The scientists gave one of two different doses of metformin to middle-aged male mice and found that lower doses increased lifespan by about five per cent, and also delayed the onset of age-associated diseases.

What is gestational diabetes?

(The placenta is the organ connecting the baby by the umbilical cord to the uterus and sends nutrients from mother to child.) As the placenta becomes larger throughout pregnancy, it creates more hormones, which, in turn, increases the insulin resistance, the Cleveland Clinic said. The mother’s pancreas is typically able to make three times the normal amount of insulin to beat this resistance, according to the Cleveland Clinic. If the pancreas can’t produce the required amount of insulin, however, sugar levels will rise, and the woman will have gestational diabetes. You may be at risk for gestational diabetes if you are overweight before becoming pregnant, have a family history of diabetes, are older than 25, have previously giving birth to a baby over 9 pounds, previously gave birth to a stillborn baby, have had gestational diabetes with a previous pregnancy or have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, the Cleveland Clinic said. Women typically find out whether they have gestational diabetes between the 24th and 28th weeks of pregnancy, according to the Cleveland Clinic. That’s when insulin resistance usually begins.

Structure of a Potential Diabetes Drug Target

An international team, led by Drs. Fai Yiu Siu and Raymond C. Stevens of Scripps Research Institute, set out to determine the structure of the glucagon receptor. Their study was funded in part by NIHs National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). Results appeared in the July 25, 2013, issue of Nature along with research from a British group that reported the structure of another class B receptor, corticotropin-releasing factor receptor type 1. The scientists, who have extensive experience working with receptors, used a fusion protein to painstakingly create crystals of the glucagon receptor so that the structure could be determined by X-ray crystallography. In addition, they altered more than 100 different amino acids in the receptor protein to better understand what parts of the receptor help bind the hormone.

Diabetes drug may increase life span

640_Painkillers.jpg

Caloric restriction means eating fewer calories than are burned every day, and has been shown in animal studies to increase life span. But in the new study, mice fed metformin were not put on a restrictive diet in fact, they ate more calories than those not fed metformin. The study suggests a possible way to reap the benefits of caloric restriction without food deprivation. However, it’s too soon to know whether the results apply to humans. For one, the mice that lived longer had blood levels of metformin that were 10 times higher than those seen in humans taking the drug to treat diabetes, the researchers said. And mice put on an even higher dose of metformin actually had a decreased life span, because the drug was toxic (it caused kidney failure). Mice were also fed a controlled diet for their whole life, which is not true of people, said study researcher Rafael de Cabo, a senior investigator at the National Institute on Aging.

August 5, 2013 0 Good news for those who suffer from celiac disease or a severe gluten intolerance; today, the Food and Drug Administration released new guidelines manufacturers must follow in order to label their foods gluten-free . Under the new guidelines, foods labeled “gluten-free,” “free of gluten,” “without gluten,” or “no gluten” must be made without wheat, rye, barley, or crossbreeds of these grains; if these grains are an ingredient, the food must be processed to remove gluten until the protein measures in at fewer than 20 parts per million. Manufacturers have a year to make sure their foods comply with the new rules. For the one in 133 Americans who suffer from the autoimmune disorder celiac disease, a severe gluten intolerance that can lead to abdominal pain, decreased appetite, and digestive tract cancers, the new labeling may give them lifesaving peace of mind when reaching for the plethora of gluten-free products that are available the FDA says that as many as five percent of food products currently labeled gluten-free may actually contain gluten. However, if you don’t have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, keep in mind that you may be wasting your money if you’re seeking out those gluten-free-labeled bagels and pizzas.
