Ten Celebrities Who Suffer(ed) From Tinnitus

"I wonder how you're feeling There's ringing in my ears And no one to relate to 'cept the sea..." -- Peter Frampton There are few afflictions as constant and annoying as tinnitus, which Wikipedia defines as: "The hearing of sound when no external sound is present. While often described as a ringing, it may also sound like a clicking, hiss or roaring. Most of the time, it comes on gradually. In some people, the sound causes depression, anxiety or interferes with concentration." It is a surprisingly common condition with chronic tinnitus affecting 5 to 10 percent of the U.S. adult population, with about 0.5 percent having severe, debilitating tinnitus. Below is a list of ten famous people through history who suffered from tinnitus, with a common denominator seeming to exist and among performers, particularly actors and musicians. 1.

Steve Martin Another victim of show biz-related hearing loss, Martin has suffered from tinnitus since filming a gunfight on set of his comedy Three Amigos, in 1986.

In this study, we analyzed the effects of daily light/dark (LD) conditions on depression and other symptoms, and also analyzed the mixed effects of LD conditions and corticosterone treatment. Male adult C57BL/6 mice were treated with corticosterone in a normal LD cycle of 12 hours light and 12 hours dark (LD12 : 12), short day conditions of 6 hours light and 18 hours dark (LD6 : 18), or long day conditions of 21 hours light and 3 hours dark (LD21 : 3). The activity rhythms of mice in aberrant LD conditions were entrained within 2 weeks. After 6 weeks of exposure, several behavioral tests were conducted. Corticosterone indu...

Suppression of reproductive functions in stallions can be of interest for population control in feral horses, for prevention of sexual or aggressive behavior and to eliminate equine arteritis virus in stallions with virus persistence. One approach to suppress reproductive activity is the downregulation of GnRH receptors by continuous exposure to exogenous GnRH agonists such as deslorelin. Deslorelin implants have been developed for long-term depression of fertility and sexual behaviour in male dogs.

Conclusion: Adolescents with PCOS experience significantly more emotional distress compared to adolescents without PCOS. This emotional distress may be related, at least in part, to certain clinical features of PCOS including obesity and hirsutism. PCOS in adolescents should be assessed not only for the gynecological and metabolic aspects but also for the emotional aspects of the disease. PMID: 29914248 [PubMed]

Authors: Tamada D, Kitamura T, Takahara M, Tanaka T, Takeda M, Otsuki M, Shimomura I Abstract Circadian variations impact thyrotropin (TSH) secretion; in Cushing's syndrome (CS) patients, the nocturnal serum TSH surge is abolished.

Serum TSH surge was assessed by the midnight-to-morning serum TSH ratio (2300-2400 h to 0800-0900 h). The ...
