Hyperhidrosis is defined as abnormally excessive sweating unrelated to heat or exercise. If you have this condition you might find yourself sweating so much that it soaks through your clothes or drips off your hands. Hands, feet, underarms and the face are areas that are typically affected, and the sweating usually occurs on both sides of the body. The most common form of hyperhidrosis is known as primary focal (essential) hyperhidrosis. The nerves responsible for signaling sweat glands become overactive, even though they haven’t been triggered by physical activity or a rise in temperature. It’s interesting to ...

AbstractMenopause has an adverse impact on overall musculoskeletal health. It is associated with osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and Sarcopenia. Sarcopenia includes age-related muscle wasting as well as loss of muscle function. It is a relatively newly recognized condition and is known to be accelerated by estrogen deficiency. Osteoarthritis is also linked with estrogen deficiency more recently. Locomotor disability leads to a compromised quality of life. Sarcopenia and obesity (sarcobesity) have adverse outcome as it leads to morbidity due to increased incidence of lifestyle diseases like diabetes mellitus, hypertension. Poo...

Authors: Bahadoran Z, Mirmiran P, Jeddi S, Carlström M, Azizi F, Ghasemi A Abstract Emerging data suggest that impaired nitric oxide (NO) homeostasis has a key role in development of cardiometabolic disorders. The association between circulating levels of NO metabolites, ie nitrate and nitrite (NOx), and risk of chronic diseases has not yet been fully clarified. This work aims to address epidemiologic aspects of NO metabolism and discusses different physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions influencing circulating NOx. Further, cross-sectional associations of serum NOx with metabolic disorders are described ...

Abstract Supplementary estrogen plays important roles for female patients as convenient birth control, relief of postmenopausal symptoms, and in management of other selected problems. However, as is the case for essentially all medications, there are side effects. Short of a major pulmonary embolus, the most severe side effect of estrogen would appear to be sporadic, rare, and severe hypertriglyceridemia associated with acute pancreatitis. The occurrence of this fortunately rare problem usually happens in the presence of some preexisting and usually mild increase in triglycerides (TG). A case of chronic and severe...

This study examined 103 patients with bipolar 1 disorder who, despite taking a mood stabilizer, experienced frequent relapses. During a 12-month period, the group receiving cognitive therapy had significantly fewer bipolar episodes and reported less mood symptoms on the monthly mood questionnaires. They also had less fluctuation in manic symptoms. It’s normal to panic in the days and weeks your symptoms return; however, as you can see, there are many options to pursue. If the first approach doesn’t work, try another. Persevere until you achieve full remission and feel like yourself again. It will happen. Trust me on that.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, with high rates of morbidity and mortality throughout the world [1]. Both the prevalence and incidence of T2DM have increased considerably in recent decades. According to the International Diabetes Federation, the number of people with diabetes is predicted to increase from 415 million in 2015 to 642 million in 2040 in the world [2]. From 2007 to 2017, the all-age disability adjusted life-years (DALYs) rates for T2DM increased by 34.2% and 33.9% for women and men [3].
