Healthy life expectancy combined life expectancy and absence of morbidity and disability while alive. It would be relevant for more developed countries as it would measure mortality and morbidity due to so called “life style” related diseases relating to smoking, alcohol, obesity, lack of activity, and road traffic accidents; and in some countries, like in Russia, due to deteriorating health systems.. Many developing countries have already reached quite a high life expectancy of 65 years or so. So what drives healthy life expectancy?.

*  Life Expectancy Secondary Bone Cancer
... Secondary bone cancer refers to cancer that actually originates in some other part of the body but finds it way to the bones. When a cancerous tumor develops in some organ, the cancerous cells break away from this organ and make their way to the bone leading to the development of secondary bone cancer. Life expectancy of secondary bone cancer depends on all these factors and therefore, it becomes very difficult to predict it. In addition, in order to predict life expectancy, one also has to take into account the patient's age, location of the secondary bone cancer, the grade and stage of the cancer, and to what degree the lymphatic system and blood vessels have been invaded by the cancer. Therefore, life expectancy of secondary bone cancer varies from one person to another. However, it must be added that in most cases the secondary bone cancer is discovered in stage 4 and this means that life expectancy of the patients is greatly reduced, ...

... Comments. Life Expectancy for People Living With HIV Increases by 15 Years By Warren Tong From TheBodyPRO.com. A person living with HIV who is on treatment in the U.S. or Canada can expect to live almost a normal life span, according to a study presented at IAS 2013. The study, conducted by the NA-ACCORD North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design, estimated the average life span to be 71.4 years in 2006-2007, an increase of 15 years from 56.1 in 2000-2002. The estimates were given in terms of life expectancy at age 20, defined as the average number of additional years a person at age 20 could expect to live assuming the current age-specific mortality rates remained constant. Overall, average life expectancy at age 20 jumped from 36.1 in 2000-2002 to 45.2 in 2003-2005, and then to 51.4 in 2006-2007. For men, life expectancy at age 20 increased from 35.9 in 2000-2002 to 44.4 in 2003-2005 and 53.4 in 2006-2007. The ...

Hutch News. Too much screening. Patients with limited life expectancy still getting cancer tests. Overscreening offers little benefit, potential harm and high costs, new studies conclude. Aug. 18, 2014. By JoNel Aleccia / Fred Hutch News Service. Patients with very high mortality risk are still receiving screenings for common kinds of cancer, including mammograms for breast cancer, even though the potential for benefit is low. About 34 percent of women expected to live less than five years received mammograms recently, a new study finds. File photo by BSIP / UIG Via Getty Images. Older people and those with limited life expectancy – as little as five years -- often get cancer screenings that likely won’t help and could cause harm, despite national guidelines ...

Chicago s life expectancy rose between 1990, 2010 - Chicago Tribune. Get unlimited digital access to chicagotribune.com. News. News. Nearly a quarter-century ago, a newborn residing in West Garfield Park could expect to live slightly more than 63 years. By 2010, a West Garfield Park newborn had an average outlook of roughly 69 years. But two decades of state mortality data analyzed by the city also reiterate hard truths that have long confronted local authorities, researchers and the people of America's third-largest city: Chicago's longevity gains were undercut by persistent disparities between neighborhoods. Life expectancy at birth in the city in 1990 lagged about five years behind the U.S. average, yet city researchers concluded that Chicago sped to largely close the gap with a climbing national average two decades later. In 2010, for example, a newborn living in Chicago's Near North Side had a life expectancy of about 85 years among the city's highest that year, ...

Leisure-time physical activity is associated with longer life expectancy, even at relatively low levels of activity and regardless of body weight, according to researchers at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health NIH. In order to determine the number of years of life gained from leisure-time physical activity in adulthood, researchers examined data on more than 650,000 adults, mostly aged 40 and older, who took part in 1 of 6 population-based studies that were designed to evaluate various aspects of cancer risk. After accounting for other factors that could affect life expectancy, the researchers found that life expectancy was 3.4 years longer for people who reported they got the recommend level of physical activity 2.5 hours at moderate intensity/1.25 hours at vigorous intensity each week. People who reported leisure-time physical activity at twice the recommended level gained 4.2 years of life. The researchers ...

Results: Assuming a high rate of HIV diagnosis median CD4 cell count at diagnosis, 432 cells/μl, projected median age at death life expectancy was 75.0 years. When a low diagnosis rate was assumed diagnosis only when symptomatic, median CD4 cell count 140 cells/μl, life expectancy was 71.5 years, implying an average 10.5 years of life lost due to HIV. Most studies to date which have estimated life expectancy have projected current death rates in people with HIV.

On the basis of a review of outcomes metrics currently in use and the availability of data for at least some US counties, I recommend the following metrics for population health outcomes: 1 life expectancy from birth, or age-adjusted mortality rate; 2 condition-specific changes in life expectancy, or condition-specific or age-specific mortality rates; and 3 self-reported level of health, functional status, and experiential status. Summary measures of population health Health-adjusted life expectancy at birth y. Quality-adjusted life expectancy. Quality-adjusted life years. These summary measures are based on reductions in life expectancy to account for disability or other measures of poor health; they provide estimates of either the expected number of future years of healthy life at a given age or the number of years that chronic disease and disability subtract from a healthy life.

RESULTS While life expectancy at age 18 for men and women increased between the 1980s and the 2000s, diabetes-free life expectancy at age 18 decreased by 1.7 years for men and 1.5 years for women. Obese individuals experienced the greatest losses in diabetes-free life expectancy during this period, estimated at 5.6 years for men and 2.5 years for women.

The model estimated changes in clinical outcomes, life expectancy, disability-free life expectancy, lifetime costs, disability-adjusted life years DALYs, and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios ICERs for neonatal intensive care compared to no intensive care. In the base-case analysis, neonatal intensive care for infants born at 24–26, 27–29, and 30–33 weeks gestational age prolonged life expectancy by 28, 43, and 34 years and averted 9, 15, and 12 DALYs, at incremental costs per infant of US$11,400, US$9,500, and US$3,000, respectively, compared to an alternative of no intensive care. We derived estimates of neonatal mortality in the absence of intensive ...

The economic result is yet to be seen. Economic Implications of Longevity and Mortality Risk Given that demographics play such a significant role in a nation's economic growth, it is easy to see why corporations must pay close attention to not only the demographic makeup of their customers, but also their employees.

Â Physicians, nurses and medical personnel have a very different view when it comes to death and dying. In February 2012, Dr Craig Bowron wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post about our nation’s unrealistic views of death and dying. Our unrealistic expectations of what medicine can do begin with the notion that medical care has been the driving force behind the increase in life expectancy over the past century. Â There’s no denying that life expectancy has increased; according to Bowron, the average life expectancy in 1900 was 47 years and 78 years as of 2007.

*  Life expectancy
In countries with high infant mortality rates, LEB is highly sensitive to the rate of death in the first few years of life. Moreover, because life expectancy is an average, a particular person may well die many years before or many years after their "expected" survival. The difference in life expectancy between men and women in the United States dropped from 7.8 years in 1979 to 5.3 years in 2005, with women expected to live to age 80.1 in 2005. In developed countries, starting around 1880, death rates decreased faster among women, leading to differences in mortality rates between males and females. If a large amount of data is available, the age-specific death rates can be simply taken as the mortality rates actually experienced at each age i.e. The expected future lifetime of a life age x in whole years the 'curtate expected lifetime' of ' x ' is denoted by the symbol \,e x\.

(1/1743) The expiry date of man: a synthesis of evolutionary biology and public health.

In industrialised countries, mortality and morbidity are dominated by age related chronic degenerative diseases. The health and health care needs of future populations will be heavily determined by these conditions of old age. Two opposite scenarios of future morbidity exist: morbidity might decrease ("compress"), because life span is limited, and the incidence of disease is postponed. Or morbidity might increase ("expand"), because death is delayed more than disease incidence. Optimality theory in evolutionary biology explains senescence as a by product of an optimised life history. The theory clarifies how senescence is timed by the competing needs for reproduction and survival, and why this leads to a generalised deterioration of many functions at many levels. As death and disease are not independent, future morbidity will depend on duration and severity of the process of senescence, partly determined by health care, palliating the disease severity but increasing the disease duration by postponing death. Even if morbidity might be compressed, health care needs will surely expand.  (+info)

(2/1743) Prediction of life expectancy in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension. A retrospective nationwide survey from 1980-1990.

Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a progressive disease of unknown etiology usually followed by death within 5 years after diagnosis. Although heart-lung or lung transplantation is now offered to patients with advanced PPH, adequate criteria assessing an accurate prediction of life expectancy in PPH has been difficult to establish. The aims of this study were to identify the characteristic features associated with a poor prognosis in patients with PPH, and to attempt to establish an individual prognostic index that predicts with great accuracy survival or death of PPH after one year, thereby helping to define criteria for patient selection for transplantation. In 1991, a retrospective nation-wide survey on PPH was conducted in Japan, and the clinical and cardiorespiratory variables of 223 PPH cases (female; 144, male; 79) in the period from 1980-1990 were obtained. The mean pulmonary arterial pressure (PPA) was 57.5+/-17.2 mm Hg (mean+/-SD), and the overall median survival time was 32.5 months since the first diagnostic catheterization. The characteristic features of 61 patients who died within one year of catheterization (Nonsurvivors group) were compared to 141 patients who survived one year or more from the time of catheterization (Survivors group). Among several clinical and cardiorespiratory variables, heart rate, PPA, right atrial pressure (PRA), stroke volume index (SI), pulmonary vascular resistance, and partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2) were significantly different between the two groups. As the independent factors, PPA, PRA, SI, and PaCO2 were selected for the multiple logistic analysis. Using a 0.7 probability cut-point to separate Nonsurvivors from Survivors, 84.6% of Nonsurvivors and Survivors could be correctly predicted from this logistic regression equation. Predictive equations like the present preliminary one can be used in the future to better assess life expectancy in patients with PPH in whom transplantation will be considered.  (+info)

(3/1743) Lack of inhibitory effects of the Ju-myo protein on development of glutathione S-transferase placental form-positive foci in the male F344 rat liver.

The effects of the 77 kDa Ju-myo protein, isolated from Drosophila melanogaster, on the development of glutathione S-transferase placental form (GST-P) positive foci in the male F344 rat liver were evaluated using a medium-term bioassay system. No modifying potential was evident in terms of the numbers or areas of GST-P positive foci. Ju-myo protein did not exert any influence on cell proliferation, as reflected by ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) or spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) activity and BrdU labeling. These results demonstrated that Ju-myo protein is unlikely to have inhibitory or promoting effects on rat liver carcinogenesis.  (+info)

(4/1743) Impact of market value on human mate choice decisions.

Mate choice strategies are a process of negotiation in which individuals make bids that are constrained by their status in the market place. Humans provide an unusual perspective on this because we can measure their explicitly expressed preferences before they are forced to make any choices. We use advertisements placed in newspaper personal columns to examine, first, the extent to which evolutionary considerations affect the level of competition (or market value) during the reproductively active period of people's lives and, second, the extent to which market value influences individual's willingness to make strong demands of prospective mates. We show that female market value is determined principally by women's fecundity (and, to a lesser extent, reproductive value), while male market value is determined by men's earning potential and the risk of future pairbond termination (the conjoint probability that the male will either die or divorce his partner during the next 20 years). We then show that these selection preferences strongly influence the levels of demands that men and women make of prospective partners (although older males tend to overestimate their market value).  (+info)

(5/1743) Light on population health status.

A new approach to illustrating and analysing health status is presented which allows comparisons of various aspects of health in a population at different times and in different populations during given periods. Both quantitative and qualitative elements can be represented, the impact of interventions can be monitored, and the extent to which objectives are achieved can be assessed. The practical application of the approach is demonstrated with reference to the health profiles to Tunisia in 1966 and 1994.  (+info)

(7/1743) Survival of healthy older people.

The purpose of this study was to discover any relationships which might exist between measurable variables recorded when a healthy group of men and women, aged 70 years and over, were examined and their subsequent survival time. It was found that height, body weight, systolic and diastolic blood pressures, haemoglobin, hand grip power, cardiothoracic ratio, and pulse rate are of no predictive value in the estimation of survival time. Survival is not influenced by marital status or occupational class. For both sexes the degree of kyphosis and age are useful predictive criteria in respect of survival time. However, much research work requires to be done to explain why many people die at the time they do.  (+info)

(8/1743) Does over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy improve smokers' life expectancy?

OBJECTIVE: To determine the public health benefits of making nicotine replacement therapy available without prescription, in terms of number of quitters and life expectancy. DESIGN: A decision-analytic model was developed to compare the policy of over-the-counter (OTC) availability of nicotine replacement therapy with that of prescription ([symbol: see text]) availability for the adult smoking population in the United States. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Long-term (six-month) quit rates, life expectancy, and smoking attributable mortality (SAM) rates. RESULTS: OTC availability of nicotine replacement therapy would result in 91,151 additional successful quitters over a six-month period, and a cumulative total of approximately 1.7 million additional quitters over 25 years. All-cause SAM would decrease by 348 deaths per year and 2940 deaths per year at six months and five years, respectively. Relative to [symbol: see text] nicotine replacement therapy availability, OTC availability would result in an average gain in life expectancy across the entire adult smoking population of 0.196 years per smoker. In sensitivity analyses, the benefits of OTC availability were evident across a wide range of changes in baseline parameters. CONCLUSIONS: Compared with [symbol: see text] availability of nicotine replacement therapy, OTC availability would result in more successful quitters, fewer smoking-attributable deaths, and increased life expectancy for current smokers.  (+info)

  • if type 2 DM is well-controlled, patients can live long healthy lives. i do not think you will find any life expectancy chart for this. think positive instead -- strive for control of blood sugars, blood pressure, cholesterol. all are important.


What is the life expectancy of a man with 10 PSA for 2 years?


  • My friend found out he has prostate cancer and based on his research the life expectancy is the same whether his has prosectomy (2 recommendations) or not. His PSA was 9 last year and this year is a 10. He had a second opinion but they also recommended prosectomy.
  • Life expectancy is not determined by PSA. Unless he is over 80 years old his “research” is very faulty.


What is the life expectancy of a male born in 1989?


  • I want to know what my life expectancy is... I'm a white male living in the United States. I've never lived outside of Texas. I do not drink, smoke, etc. I'm thinking my life expectancy is about 73 years. To be honest, I eat a lot of fast food. However, I don't eat sweets. At all... I don't really exercise much, but my job is somewhat demanding. It requries me to walk about 3 miles per day, and I work 6 days per week.
  • The average life expectancy of a male is about 73 years old, so you're right. For women (in case you were interested), its 77.4.


What is the average life expectancy of doctors in the US?


  • A friend of mine claimed that the average life expectancy of doctors was 58. I have no idea where he got this information and couldn't verify it by doing a search. Hopefully someone here has the real answer.
  • Your friend must be a doctor. There is no study that shows a direct correlation to decreased life expectancy due to being a doctor. However, there are studies that show that doctors are the third leading CAUSE for decreased life expectancy. If you want to do more research on the subject, I would recommend the Bureau of Labor Statistics. http://www.bls.gov/

What is the life expectancy of survivors of brain cancer after surgery?


  • He had a brain surgery ten years ago, he is still suffering from aftereffects from the surgery, receiving chemotherapeutic treatments and saying that his life expectancy is as half long as healthy people. Is this true?
  • Consider him blessed. My brother died of brain cancer...he didn't have a chance. My sister beat brain cancer 3 times with surgery and did well. It's been less than 10 yrs for her and she has it again only this time she is terminal. I'd give anything if she could have 10 yrs. So you see, life expectancy is different for everyone. He's still alive after 10 yrs and still receiving treatments. That means his Dr has hopes. They gave up on my sister. Count your blessings and treasure every day you have with him and not dwell on when he may die. I wish him the best. God bless


How does life expectancy make Iceland successful?


  • PLEASE HELP! Using this information: Life expectancy in Iceland is also one of the highest in the world, with women living on average to be 81 years old and men 77 years old. How does this information explain how Iceland is a successful country?
  • It means that there is access to good (and enough) nutrition and good health care and that it's a peaceful place with little pollution. That's a lot of success. Remember, success is not only counted in money. In many developing countries, where life expectancy is really low, people die young due to poor nutrition (or lack of nutrition), contamined water, lack of health care (a lot of people die from diseases, conditions, child birth etc. that are easily curable or treatable if there is access to decent health care), extremely polluted air or they are killed in wars.


What is the life expectancy for advanced cirrhosis of the liver?


  • What is the life expectancy for a person with advanced cirrhosis of the liver? A family member is currently in hospital with jaundice and a swollen stomach, and I don't think the prognosis looks good. What is the usual life expectancy?
  • My first symptom of cirrhosis for me was a swollen stomach. I had no other symptoms. It turned out my liver was functioning at only 10%. I had no jaundice. The doctors gave me an estimate of 5 years before total failure would occur and told me I would need a transplant in order to stay alive. Three years later I had my transplant done. The transplant surgeon told me after viewing my actual liver that I would have only lived another year or a little longer at best with my cirrhotic liver, so the estimate was pretty accurate. He also said that the time I would have left would not be very good, that I would be very sick. My cirrhosis was caused by an autoimmune disease. If your family member has had a biopsy, that should tell them a lot about how much damage has been done which will give them the ability to give a time frame. It would just be an estimate since there are a lot of factors that come into play in determining how long a person will be able to stay alive. I hope your family member will be able to get a transplant should they need one. It saved my life.
