Mark B.

It’s great to hear that the changes Mark has made to his diet and lifestyle have allowed him to do his favorite things once again. – Dr. Perlmutter Three years ago my weight was up to 165 lbs. (I am 5-7 tall, was 62 at the time). One day, my wife wife just looked at me and said, “Enough!” We went on the HCG diet that a coworker had lost about 30 lbs. on. I lost about 8 lbs. and noticed that my joints were no longer aching. This had been a common affliction all my adult life. I had always attributed it to a severe penicillin reaction when I was 7. But, when I began to eat my favorite foods again and the aches &pain returned! I was tested and found I was sensitive to gluten. I immediately started a gluten-free diet and felt 100% better within weeks but started putting on weight again. It has been a struggle to keep my weight below 160. When we heard about Grain Brain, we bought the book immediately and began following your recommendations. My weight was 153.3 lbs. this morning. I am loving the weight loss almost as much as the great food. I recently was diagnosed with a mild case of anemia, probably due to esophageal abrasions. Due to the anemia, I have not played golf in over a year. I walk when I play and knew I would never make it. I will start with 9 holes next week, and am walking 3-5 miles 3 or 4 times per week now. -Mark B. The post Mark B. appeared first on David Perlmutter M.D..

Abstract Women are increasingly participating in more and more sporting activities. For years, women athletes have been treated as the "female" equivalent of male athletes, with similar medical approaches but this is changing. The concept that women are unique in their "athletic arena" is further underscored with emerging scientific evidence--from the physiologic details not visible to the eye, to the more overt biomechanical and anatomic differences. We review a handful of conditions active women potentially may encounter: pregnancy, the female athlete triad, patellofemoral pain, potential inj...

This study highlighted sex differences in areas that could account for the underuse of the procedure in both sexes, with women affected to a greater extent. Understanding these factors will help address the unmet needs of both sexes after TJA by encouraging future studies and provider education to ensure that all patients are able to access the necessary procedures for pain relief and functional improvement.
