Abstract We provide original, international evidence documenting that self‐assessed health (SAH) is a leading health indicator, that is, a significant predictor of future changes in health conditions, in a large sample of Europeans aged above 50 and living in 13 different countries. We find that, after controlling for attrition bias, lagged SAH is significantly and negatively correlated with changes in the number of chronic diseases, net of the correlations with levels, and changes in sociodemographic factors and health styles, country and regional health system effects, and declared symptoms. Illness‐specific estimate...

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel took to his late night show once more to talk healthcare — a subject near and dear to him personally, after his infant son dealt with heart surgery in the days after his birth last May. He delivered a heartfelt monologue then about the importance of adequate health coverage for all Americans, and in the wake of new healthcare legislation from Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, he returned to the subject with an emotional plea. I know you guys are going to find this hard to believe, but a few months ago, after my son had open heart surgery, which was something I spoke about on the...

Love hurts, but a breakup can be agony—even beyond the emotional pain. If you’ve gone through a highly emotional split, researchers say your immune system can take a significant hit. “Breaking up with a partner leaves people feeling blue and lonely, even when it’s something they wanted,” says Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, a professor of psychiatry and director of the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research at Ohio State University. “Time heals wounds, and people recover, but the time course for recovery is related to how much a person continues to be preoccupied with thoughts of their former...

A few weeks ago, I posted about whatmy pain medication may hide, yesterday I found the truth. Call me slow about some things but I had to do some thinking.I have RA, fibromyalgia, bad back, etc - all sorts of nice things that cause pain. So I get the good drugs. I have this awesome pain patch that masks 99% of it. It wasn't until I was an idiot a few weeks ago and forgot to change my pain patch I had no idea how much pain.The thinking process I had to go through was what was all that pain from and why is it important? I know several people that have RA as well, my mother and an old friend. Both of them are on injected biol...

In this study, the complexation properties of the drug Tenox with Ca(II), Sr(II) and Ba(II) ions in a (dichloromethane + water) binary solvent system are reported. The formed metal complexes were characterized structurally, thermally, and biologically. Tenox was found to act as a chelate monoanionic ligand towards all metal ions with complexation stoichiometry of 1:2 (Metal: Tenox) for Ca(II) and Sr(II) ions, and 1:1 for Ba(II) ions. The Tenox ligand behaves as a bidentate ligand when coordinated with Sr(II) or Ba(II) ions and as a tridentate ligand when coordinated with Ca(II) ions. The Sr(II) and Ba(II) complex of the Te...

We report a case of severe heart failure who required the placement of left ventricular assist device (LVAD). A 34-year old woman, who had been diagnosed as RA 8 years before and treated with predonisolone and methotrexate, was admitted to the local hospital due to short of breath. She had severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction with an ejection fraction (EF) of 15%. Twenty days after the recovery by intensive treatment, she was re-hospitalized due to cardiogenic shock requiring intravenous administration of inotropes and intraaortic balloon pump (IABP).
