Hair Loss Prevention 101

Hey Jude! Treating Male Hair Loss Has Never Been Easier

Dont forget your vitamin B Also important for hair growth are B vitamins biotin, folate, B2, and B12. In fact, some, like biotin, are so important that theyre prescribed alongside medical treatments for hair loss (like Rogaine). If you think youre lacking vitamin B or any nutrient for that matter (like iron), speak to your doctor before you get yourself tested or go down the supplements route. An even simpler solution is to structure your diet accordingly, although getting enough biotin may be a challenge. Manage your stress At any one time, about 85 percent of the hair on your head is in its growing phase while 15 percent is in its final death stages. Amazingly, certain stressful events can actually produce a “shock to the system” that alters this natural cycle causing as much as 3040 percent of the hairs to start to die.

For the latter problem, hair does usually grow back eventually, but male pattern baldness tends to be degenerative – i.e. it will keep on going.

Herbal dietary supplements As opposed to Synthetic products

AFP RELAXNEWS Taking supplements containing vitamin B may help cut your risk of stroke, a new study suggests. Related Stories Low-fat dairy associated with reduced risk of stroke Taking vitamin B supplements may help fend off your risk of stroke, a new study published Wednesday claims. Previous studies regarding vitamin B have yielded conflicting results, with some suggesting that the vitamin can protect again stroke and heart attack, while others have shown that it can actually increase the risk. Previous research has also shown that vitamin B3 may help boost recovery in patients who have suffered a stroke. RELATED: DON’T OVERDO IT ON VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTS In the latest study, researchers at Zhengzhou University in China analyzed 14 clinical trials involving nearly 55,000 subjects. The results, published online in the journal Neurology, found that there was a 7% lower risk of stroke among those patients who took vitamin B supplements. However, the findings showed that vitamin B supplementation didn’t have much impact on reducing the risk of heart attack.

“We already knew that the dietary supplements identified in the report can play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases; we felt compelled to find out if they could also contribute to health care cost savings by reducing the medical events associated with those conditions. This new report says emphatically that they do.” In the U.S., 75 percent of health care dollars go to the treatment of chronic disease, with only3 percent spent on prevention, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[2] Medical eventsthat is, inpatient procedures and emergency room visitsrelated to coronary heart disease, one of the conditions examined in this report, are expected to cost $77.92 billion per year. However, according to the new Frost & Sullivan report, if men and women, 55 years and older, with elevated cholesterol level took psyllium dietary fiber at preventive intake levels daily, the cost savings for coronary heart disease could be almost $2.5 billion dollars a year, equating to just under $19.9 billion in cumulative net savings between 2013 and 2020. Similarly, if all women over 55 with osteoporosis took calcium and vitamin D at preventive intake levels daily, society could save $1.5 billion dollars a year, or just over $12 billion dollars between 2013 and 2020. To identify these potential savings, Frost & Sullivan conducted a systematic review of hundreds of scientific studies on eight dietary supplement regimens across four diseases to determine the reduction in disease risk from these preventive practices. The firm then projected the rates of medical events across the high-risk populations and applied cost benefit analyses to determine the cost savings if people at high risk took supplements at preventive intake levels. “As an economist in the face of escalating health care costs,” said Chris Shanahan, global program manager, Frost & Sullivan, “it’s rewarding to reveal good news for health care practitioners, public policy officials, insurance companies and patients that select supplement interventions can reduce the chances of experiencing a costly medical event and help control rising health care costs.” Mr.

While the number of comprehensive reproductive health providers in Texas continues to shrink, there are currently 108 of these state-funded anti-choice counseling center across the state. The disproportionate representation of crisis pregnancy centers across Texas could have troubling consequences for women seeking healthcare, as Andrea Grimes at RH Reality Check notes : With so many crisis pregnancy centers and so few licensed abortion providers, future abortion-seeking Texans could easily be misled by religious-driven centers offering pregnancy tests and counseling, but no scientifically sound medical advice or services. Its a problem that Whole Womens Health is already anticipating, leading it to post the following warning on its website: If you or someone you know is seeking an abortion, always make sure and check that the clinic you are going to is an abortion facility and not a CPC. Even if you search for abortion on Google, you are likely going to see ads for free pregnancy tests that are coming from CPCs right next to the ads for actual licensed abortion clinics.

The Great Deflate: Do Breasts Always Shrink After Pregnancy and Breastfeeding?

Jaque said. If you’re unhappy with what your chest looks like after pregnancy, you may want to talk to a plastic surgeon. “It is extremely popular for women after pregnancy to be frustrated with the new shape of their breasts and seek the consultation of a plastic surgeon for a breast lift or mastopexy,” said Melissa Doft, a plastic surgeon and an assistant professor of surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. But some aren’t fans of postpartum women going under the knife.

Forest Mental Health Scheme To Be Expanded

Initiatives like Branching Out are of great significance to the one in four Scots who will experience a mental health problem every year. Case study: I enjoyed the wildlife it really helped get me outdoors When 22-year-old Darren was diagnosed with schizophrenia, he was referred to one of the Branching Out projects run by the Forestry Commission. About ten people are involved in each scheme, which can involve NHS staff as well as volunteers from the commission. Darren, who took part in a project in Perth and Kinross earlier this year, said he was keen to take part to help him get out and about and meet other people. Mostly I enjoyed the walking and seeing the wildlife, he said. The staff were really nice and the other people taking part were also really nice. It really helped getting me out of the house and getting me active. Darren, from Perth, said he would be keen to take part in other Branching Out programmes if he was given the chance.

Gestational Diabetes On The Rise

Two hours GTT of more than 140mg/dl or above indicates GDM,” says Dr Chaturvedi. How does it affect the mother and baby? If undetected or uncontrolled, diabetes can affect the foetus in many ways: – The commonest problems of high blood sugars is overgrowth of the foetus, also known as macrosomia (large baby). These mothers often have a difficult vaginal birth or may need to be delivered by caesarean section. – One peculiar problem of vaginal delivery associated with these large babies is ‘shoulder dystocia’, wherein, after the birth of the babys’ head, the shoulder ‘gets stuck’. These babies need to be delivered by special manoeuvres or may result in injury to the baby’s hand, shoulder, neck or nerves; or injury to the mother.

Know the Causes and Treatment for Ruptured Ectopic Pregnancy

causes of ruptured ectopic pregnancy

First lets be clear with what ruptured ectopic pregnancy actually means-it is the fallopian tube which gets ruptured. With the passage of time, the size of zygote increases. This exerts pressure on the fallopian tube, and in some cases the size of zygote increases more than the fallopian tube leading to its rupture. In reality, ruptured ectopic pregnancy is an advanced stage of ectopic pregnancy, hence the cause behind both of them are very much similar. Some of the common causes as given by C health are: Infection in the pelvic region- Women who have suffered from infection in the pelvic region are more prone to ruptured ectopic pregnancy. Narrow fallopian tubes- Some women have narrow fallopian tube by birth and this may become a problem for them. Previous ectopic pregnancy- Pregnant women who have faced this problem in earlier pregnancies are more prone to this problem.
