Differences In Attitudes About Diabetes Based On Age

Differences In Attitudes About Diabetes Based On Age
US announced today the findings of a new survey that reveals striking differences in opinion among various age groups about diabetes and available treatment options. In particular, the generation known as "millennials" (those aged 18 to 34) shows an uneasy mix of fear and ability to handle managing their diabetes, which is being diagnosed at a rate of 1.7 million new cases every year. Millennials rate themselves having better knowledge of diabetes than do Americans ages 35 and older, with 72 percent of millennials indicating they are well versed about the condition versus the 64 percent of non-millennials who expressed some knowledge about diabetes. Despite this self-reported understanding, millennials are less likely than older populations to think that diabetes is a serious health condition; overall, 74 percent of millennials think it is serious compared with 84 percent of the older survey respondents. An estimated 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3 percent of...

Reducing the Incidence of Food Allergy in Children

Reducing the Incidence of Food Allergy in Children
Two new studies focus on reducing the incidence of food allergy in children: Skin barrier: Key Starting Point Research at University of Cork conducted on 1,900 Irish children in early infancy explored, non-invasively, their skin barrier function by measuring water evaporation from babies' skin. It showed that skin barrier dysfunction predicts food allergen sensitisation at two years of age. The hypothesis is that defects in the skin barrier could be the key starting point of food allergy. "Now that we have shown that sensitisation to food allergens occurs across a dysfunctional skin barrier, the next step would be to instigate an intervention to see whether we can protect the skin barrier in early infancy, and to assess then whether that would decrease the rate of food sensitisation and allergy in children," explains Dr. Maeve Kelleher, Baseline Team Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, University College Cork. Jonathan O'B Hourihane, Professor of Paediatrics...

October is National Chiropractic Health Month

October is National Chiropractic Health Month
DCs encourage patients to exhaust cost-effective, safer treatments before using opioids, riskier procedures Arlington, Va. —During National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) this October, the American Chiropractic Association is working with the more than 130,000 doctors of chiropractic (DCs), chiropractic assistants (CAs) and chiropractic doctoral students nationwide to help educate the public and policymakers about the value of a “conservative care first” approach to health care. This health care model encourages emphasis on more cost-effective and safer approaches over potentially addictive medications for pain management and health enhancement. Conservative management of painful conditions may include chiropractic manipulation combined with exercise and stretching prior to moving on to procedures involving higher risk. During NCHM, chiropractors will share information with patients and their communities to empower them to become their own advocates by insisting on information about conservative treatment options. Why is “Conservative Care First” more important today than ever in facing our nation’s...
