Relationship between subjective and actigraphy-measured sleep in 237 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer

ConclusionsSubjective report of sleep problems was not associated with worse objectively measured sleep parameters in patients with MCC although it was associated with disrupted circadian rest-activity rhythm and poorer QOL. These findings coincide with prior research in cancer patients in that an inconsistent relationship exists between subjective and objective sleep measurements on some sleep domains. This study supports the value of coupled evaluation of self-reported and objective measures of sleep and circadian function in cancer patients.

The story began a year ago, as did my divorce, but I will try my best to explain my relationship with Blake Chadick, as it was a major impact on me this past year, waiting for my divorce to be finalized.  I realize my blog is reading backwards at the moment, but should only be several entries or so.First of all, he's married.  He said his wife Melissa was very sick from the radiation treatment she received when she had colon (among other) cancers in 2011.  She slept half of the day, was in the the bathroom for the other half, and had a medication the constipated her for about 2 hours a day so she could be ac...

On Thursday, the Food and Drug Administration approved the first drug designed to prevent chronic migraine headaches. Aimovig, made by Amgen and Novartis, is a monthly, self-administered injection that blocks a molecule involved in migraine attacks. Over the course of three clinical trials, the drug was successful at reducing the frequency of migraines for chronic sufferers. It is expected to be available in as soon as a week and will cost $575 per month, though out-of-pocket costs will vary depending on insurance. This is the story of Susan Giordano, 58, whose chronic migraines have nearly ceased after taking a monthly s...

Imagine you have a friend named Justin. He is a schoolteacher. Honest, hardworking, doesn’t smoke, rarely drinks alcohol, sleeps well, doesn’t take drugs, shows up at work every day. He has also chosen to be vegetarian. Another friend of yours, an auto mechanic named Tommy, eats fast food, loves fried chicken, drinks too much beer on the weekends, likes to drive fast cars, and sometimes gets into legal tangles. He smokes cigarettes, though has limited it to only half-a-pack per day. Late weekends, some weekday nights, sleep cut short to just two or three hours. Tommy is not a vegetarian, but likes his burgers r...

ConclusionHigher doses of aerobic exercise, up to 300 min·wk‐1, improve multiple HRQoL outcomes among stage I‐III colon cancer survivors. These findings provide evidence that aerobic exercise may provide multiple health benefits for colon cancer survivors.

The Growing Toll of Our Ever-Expanding WaistlinesBy  JANE E. BRODY NOV. 13, 2017Paul Rogers I hope you ’re not chomping on a bagel or, worse, a doughnut while you read about what is probably the most serious public health irony of the last half century in this country: As one major killer — smoking — declined, another rose precipitously to take its place: obesity.Many cancer deaths were averted after millions quit lighting up, but they are now rising because even greater numbers are unable to keep their waistlines in check.Today, obesity and smoking remain the two leading causes of pre...

I took the super-duper thick yogurt that I made with added prebiotic fiber and made a really delicious and rich chocolate frozen yogurt. Most store-bought yogurt, of course is the outdated and unhealthy low- or non-fat variety, often thickened with emulsifying agents to improve consistency, but damaging the mucous lining of your intestinal tract and encouraging dysbiosis, even if it contains probiotic microorganisms. We can make high-fat yogurt, prolong the fermentation process to further reduce lactose and denature the casein protein, and add a prebiotic fiber such as inulin to increase bacterial counts and increase butyr...
