#875: MM- Alzheimer’s Prevention through Attitude

Posted on: Tue, Mar 26, 2019, at 5:02 am

Are you the type of person that doesn’t want to grow old? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Some people talk about how old and sick they’re getting while others fight aging every step of the way. For those of you who want to stay young, you may be on to something. According to a new study out of Yale, people who remained positive while aging are less likely to get Alzheimer’s. The researchers followed over forty seven hundred people, 26% of which had the genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s.  Those with the gene variant who refused to subscribe to the negative aging talk were nearly 50% less likely to develop dementia.  This is completely in line with previous studies that prove attitude can affect gene expression.

#873: MM- Coughing While Eating May be a Serious Symptom

Posted on: Mon, Mar 25, 2019, at 5:03 am

Do you cough after you eat? If so, it may be a sign. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Coughing after you eat may be related to several things. For example, some people cough if they eat a food they’re sensitive to or allergic to. Many people don’t realize that they have such sensitivities. Another common cause is acid-reflux, where the food and stomach acid actually travels back up the esophagus. And for those people who suffer from asthma, some foods contain sulfites, which can trigger an asthma attack. Beer, wine, pickled onions, dried fruit, and soft drinks are just a few of the items asthma patients should avoid. So, if you tend to cough after a meal or during a meal, pay special attention to your diet and talk to your doctor.

#871: MM- Keep Fidget Spinners out of the Hands of Children

Posted on: Sat, Mar 23, 2019, at 5:06 am

Are you a fidgeter? This is Judy Gaman and this is your stay young medical minute. When some people get nervous or impatient they fidget. Fidgeting is the act of small movements with the hands of feet as a way to release pent up energy. You’ve probably all seen these little fidget spinners, perhaps you own one. One thing you may not know is that these little spinners come with a health hazard to kids. The Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition is working to get the word out that fidget spinners have caused a number of deaths and injuries to small children. Often the strong magnets come loose and children choke. Also, the ones that light up contain small lithium batteries. Some children have swallowed these batteries and had significant health issues as a result, even after having these surgically removed. Bottom line, keep your fidget spinners at work and out of the hands of children.

#870: MM- Vitamin D Supplements without Magnesium, May be a Moot Point

Posted on: Fri, Mar 22, 2019, at 5:04 am

Vitamin D deficiency is a major health concern in our country, but checking only your vitamin D level may be a moot point. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  A review published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association may unveil the reason 50% of our population is low in Vitamin D. It turns out that vitamin D, without adequate magnesium may not do you any good. Doctors are regularly checking vitamin D and prescribing supplementation, but doing so without also checking magnesium could be a mistake.  The recommended daily allowance for magnesium is 420 mg for males and 320 mg for females. Unfortunately, the average daily consumption through diet in the US contains only about half of that. Lesson – Vitamin D and Magnesium supplements should be prescribed together as well as tested together.

#869: MM- Interesting Facts About Bald Men

Posted on: Thu, Mar 21, 2019, at 5:04 am

Sometimes the hair on our head gives clues to other health issues. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Ok guys, new research from the University of Bonn linked hair loss to other factors. The researchers looked at 20,000 men’s genetic code and found 63 alterations that were also linked to hair loss. For example, short men are more likely to go bald. Bald men are more likely to have prostate cancer. Men that went through puberty early are more likely to go bald. These are just a few of the findings, but interesting nonetheless. This research just emphasizes that what you see on the outside is often a reflection of what’s going on inside of the body. Remember that hair loss in both men and women is often associated with a change in hormone levels, so be sure to see your doctor if you start seeing more hair in your brush or on your pillow.
