Millennials are often credited with driving the $4.2 trillion global wellness market, with their love of pursuits like yoga, meditation and boutique fitness. But despite their reputation for valuing health and wellness, millennials are in worse health than their elders in Generation X used to be, according to a new report from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. Millennials — who in 2017 were ages 21 to 36 — were overall in good health that year, according to Blue Cross’s data analysis of 55 million commercially insured millennials. But around age 27, millennials’ health began to decline —...

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 ...

Purpose of review To summarize developments on active surveillance for micropapillary thyroid cancers, with a focus on strategies for optimal risk stratification and caveats that currently limit adoption. Recent findings Observational trials encompassing thousands of active surveillance patients worldwide have increasingly demonstrated the viability of active surveillance for small, low-risk thyroid cancers. Collectively, these data have established that with proper patient selection and strict monitoring, more than 85% of such cases remain indolent no meaningful clinical growth over at least 10 years. Moreover, to da...

It’s no exaggeration to say that lives are transformed by the Wheat Belly lifestyle. Look what happened to Susanne after her health was ruined by being gluten-free, reversed by following the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Food manufacturers, out of ignorance or ruthless profiteering, have chosen to replace wheat and gluten with cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, or potato starch—among the few foods that provoke high blood sugar and insulin more than even our favorite grain to bash, wheat. It means that people who are gluten-free and consume such garbage replacement products gain weight in visceral inflamm...

Given the void in dietary wisdom due to the ineffectiveness and blunders of “official” dietary advice, there is no shortage of books or diet programs trying to fill that void, many wildly at odds with each other—paleo, Atkins, vegan, vegetarian, high-carb, low-carb, ketogenic, etc. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the USDA’s MyPlate and food pyramid, and organizations such as the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association, as well as many of the diet programs in the popular press, I believe, fail to acknowledge several fundamental principles that really need to be address...

By Katrina Mark, MD 1. Fertility naturally declines as we age That alone doesn’t mean you should start to worry. The general advice I give a woman is if she has been trying to become pregnant for a full year with no luck, she might consider a fertility evaluation. For a woman over age 35, she might consider it after six months. If a woman is younger and has irregular periods, it’s likely she isn’t regularly ovulating, so she might want to be evaluated sooner. 2. Sometimes there’s a reason for infertility – and sometimes, there’s not There are some things we know cause infertility. About...

Introduction: It is estimated that by 2030 pancreatic cancer will be the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. Currently, only 9% of newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer is localized and 5-year survival is 7%. Due to most pancreatic cancers (PC) presenting at a later stage with poor overall survival, early detection methods must be implemented to improve treatment outcomes. Yet, effective early screening guidelines do not exist for pancreatic cancer. Our Early Detection Program (EDP) provides personalized early detection including risk assessment, screening, and genetic testing. We aim to evaluate risk assessment c...

By John Swartzberg, M.D. It's been dubbed "manopause" or "andropause" -- a midlife change for men that some claim is just like menopause for women. But there's no such thing. "Male menopause" is a creation of the pharmaceutical and supplement industries, along with unscrupulous or uninformed practitioners who feel that some of their potency -- sexual and otherwise -- is declining. It sounds perfectly reasonable at first, but scientifically speaking, there's no evidence that men go through menopause in the same way that women do. That's not to say that men's testosterone levels don't decline ...
