Stroke prevention magazine

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke prevention magazine


Avatar n tn Dear Dr. Rubin: I read in a magazine that 700,000 Americans get a stroke each year, 75% survive, and about 9 out of 10 are left with some sort of permanent neurological impairment thereafter. First, does this sound accurate? Second, what are the biggest risk factors for stroke? Clearly, prevention is the best policy, and even at the age of 26, I want to do everything I can to reduce any risk factors I may have.
Avatar n tn ) Test all three - given that any one of the four signs might be present, all three have to be tested (and documented) . Given the disease burden of stroke, prevention is an important public health concern. ref:http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn Lots of aches and pains so would be hard for me to determine where they come from. Do you walk or exercise? I am now reading a book put out by Prevention Magazine called Diabetes 2008 Walking Fit. It is very informative and if you don't walk now you will feel a need to by the time you read it. It is beneficial in so many areas of health.
928257 tn?1296677092 It can be taken for primary prevention of heart disease but the risks and benefits must be carefully weighed with a doctor. The benefit is reduction in heart attack and stroke risk in people at increased risk, the harm is increased risk of stomach bleeding. However, the US Preventive Services Task Force recommends it only be considered in women starting at age 55. - Claritin-D is not a supplement either. It is used largely for allergic rhinitis.

186606 tn?1263513790 Jim, Here's a good article from the Life Extension Organization on the benefits of fish oil and magnesium for the prevention of atrial fibrillation: I think the article recommends some specific dosages. For what it's worth, my husband takes 500 mg. of magnesium at bedtime (it has a calming effect which helps promote good sleep) and 1,500 mg. of fish oil in three divided doses.
Avatar n tn Working on a vaccine to protect against biological weapons, or a weapon itself. In January, 2001, the magazine Nature published information that two scientists, Dr. Ron Jackson and Dr. Ian Ramshaw, using genetic manipulation and DNA sequencing, had created an incredibly virulent form of mousepox, a cousin of smallpox and Dr. Nguyen had worked for 15 years at the same Australian facility. #12: Dr. Don Wiley Age: 57, Vanished December 16, 2001.
931415 tn?1244681111 Given this unprecedented level of success, which has made Oprah a billionaire and a ubiquitous presence on TV, her own magazine, her own satellite radio station, and, soon, her own cable channel, Oprah has developed a media empire that few single individuals can match or beat. Indeed Rupert Murdoch is the only person that I can think of who likely has a wider reach than Oprah. Personally, I have no problem with Oprah’s level of success.
Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
Avatar n tn It’s only “good” if you are trying to put children and healthy people (the new target market for statin idiocy) on these drugs. Needless to say, the scholars at these prestigious think tanks could not figure out why statins cause diabetes. They still haven’t quite figured out the basics of how the human body works and what statins are doing to it. Let me give them a few clues. Statins are anti-energy by core means of operation.
Avatar m tn Coincidentally the June issue of Prevention Magazine came to the same conclusions. They made up a day in the Zone for their article. The meals consisted of 6 egg whites, ½ cantaloupe, 1 kiwifruit, and 3 macadamia nuts for breakfast, Lunch served 3 oz. of skinless white chicken, 1 cup each of steamed asparagus, broccoli, green beans, and 1 tsp of olive oil. Dinner was 3 oz. of turkey breast salad, 4 cups of spinach, 3 cups of cucumber slices, 2 tomatoes, and 1 tsp. of olive oil.
Avatar m tn I've had a hip injury from a 15 ft fall onto concrete stairs, a bad through the windshield, and work related tears (lifting stroke victims etc.), and 3 other ladder I'd be lost without this heating pad at times.
Avatar n tn No pain or other medications except Lyrica (comes under different brand name here) along with Coumardin type of anti-coagulant for her stroke prevention. She has been periodically monitored for INR values for anti-coagulant associated therapy and risks. When the dosage of Lyrica initially from 75mg was raised to 150 mg per day her INR value dropped down to 1.3 which poses a stroke risk. So the doctor cut down 75mg out of 150mg and now she is taking only 75mg which proves ineffective.
254544 tn?1310779332 While medical research and treatment primarily target prevention and viral eradication, there is a lot more effort required to change public perception and attitudes toward Hepatitis C. There are two parts to breaking a disease-related stigma: education and self-respect. By educating communities on Hepatitis C and learning to feel good about yourself (regardless of viral status), Hepatitis C can be removed from the category of socially unacceptable conditions. Why?
Avatar n tn (or you would not be here) (at least it should be more important to learn more about oral sex (or whatever you would like to study) than reading the latest gossip magazine) TALK.. about it, not when you are about to have sex or right after, as it (a negative thing) will be associated with the act.. Most mental issues are enhanced by never talking about it, so the mind brews up a world of wars, that comes up every time.
Avatar n tn My husband developed migraine headaches after a sever stroke about 5 years ago. He went thru all the depakote, etc. for depression, and then in early 2005 had another stroke. He was then started on Topamax. He has lost 40 lbs, and he cannot afford to lose any more. But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss.
Avatar f tn Thanks - disphoric is a scary place to be. I truly think I was in that state for a whole year during the episode of me being on Cymbalta and Adderall-prior to my diagnosis. That was a completely psychotic year for me and ultimately, it took a close friend to insist I talk to my medical doctor who INSISTED strongly (with the threat of hospitalization immediately), that I go back to my pdoc. It's also where my suicide attempt happened.
Avatar n tn I just read the following in the latest Prevention magazine, Nov. 2007. I don't know if will help any of you with stress, but it's worth a try. "To calm down fast, put the tip of your thumb in your mouth, make a seal, blow while puffing out your cheeks, and hold for 5-10 seconds. The increased pressure in your chest cavity stimulates the vagus nerve - a cord that runs from the brain to the abdomen - limiting blood flow to the heart. The instant result: a slower heartbeat.
363682 tn?1299492962 I want to be able to enjoy a drink out with my husband, but can't keep taking migraine abortive meds for prevention. Guess there aren't any answers, but I just wanted to put my 2 cents in and let people know there are a lot of us out here.
Avatar m tn I have had a cat scan which turned up nothing abnormal and have been referred to a neurologist by both the optician and my dr. By some stroke of luck there was a cancellation for the neurologist so I am able to get in tomorrow. There was apparently nothing wrong with my eye but the optician did feel that something was wrong with my optic nerve (can't remember if he said it was swollen or something was pushing onto it?
Avatar n tn In the old days it was masturbating with a magazine like Penthouse or Men only etc (those were so tame compared to now). Now with the internet I seem to be more addicted than ever to masturbation with porn as my wife has almost gone off sex (I am lucky to have a couple of sessions a year with her). I still have a really high sex drive needing to come almost every day, but I seem to need more to get me aroused and orgasming.
Avatar n tn A friend of mine gave me an early present and it's a book called, Ultra Prevention. It seems interesting so far and it talks about alternative medicine, which I am willing to try since none of the medications seem to work and the Doctors can't give me an answer. My father just returned from the mayo clinic and they gave him a low residue diet to follow. That has been helping him with his digestive issues. Thank you for your time and information.
Avatar m tn I am 54 and rocked obsessively from the age of 13 to 17 when it stopped suddenly as a result of what seems to have been a stroke -- aphasia, pronounced right sided weakness which lasted for weeks and significant lessening of verbal and writing skills, which over the years I slowly learned to "relearn" but still live with some of the deficits. I always rocked in some fashion. When I was very young on all fours, face down with my head on a pillow on the bed.
Avatar n tn I do not have diabetes but I do have metabolic syndrome with a pre-diabetes prevention. The main issue is the fact that my appetite has been greatly reduced. I just am not hungry all the time. Whether it's from the pills or the reduction of insulin into my body --- I like it. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I'm looking good sista'!!!!
