In a review of fatigue studies, doctors found that young adults—often women with demanding lifestyles who are physically active, regularly diet and who typically make poor eating choices—are likely to complain of low energy. The researchers believe that when there is no underlying disease, there could be a lack of vitamins and minerals, and recommend taking supplements consistently over time to eliminate any nutritional deficiency.

Hunter-Gatherer Lifestyle Still Good for Health. June 28, 2012 nbsp By. Dian and Tom Griesel. Two new studies appearing in the journal Hypertension show that a traditional hunter-gatherer or foraging lifestyle is good for your heart and health. Looking at groups in both the Amazon region and Africa, researchers found that these groups of people have lower age related increases in blood pressure and experience less hardening of the arteries than people with more modern lifestyles. Why would this be possible in two groups that would be considered primitive from a medical point of view. According to the studies, lifestyle factors are the main reason; high levels of physical activity, large amounts of fruits and vegetables and lower caloric intake are common and may offer protection against health problems commonly referred to as chronic diseases, even though they are living in conditions with greater exposure to pathogens. In the Amazon the study looked at almost 2,300 adults. The people live in the lowlands an...

... e control level. Psychometric and utility-based measures of health status of asthmatic patients with different disease control level. MedLine Citation:. OBJECTIVE: To explore the relationship between asthma control level and health-related QOL HR-QOL, and to understand the role of various psychometric and utility-based methods in studying this relationship. Patients filled in three different HR-QOL questionnaires EuroQol 5-D, Short-Form 36-item health survey, and St George's Respiratory Questionnaire and a direct time trade-off question. The Short Form-6D SF-6D was used to derive utility values from SF-36 data. RESULTS: All patient-reported evaluation methods could discriminate between patients with different disease control levels, and both generic and disease-specific instruments strongly correlated to each other. The magnitude of differences in HR-QOL between groups with different disease control levels was clinically meaningful. All three HR-QOL measures reflected a relationship between disease contro...

*  Impact of Anxiety on Quality of Life in Parkinson's Disease
... In a population-based survey using the Parkinson's Disease Quality of Life Questionniare PDQ-39 and the Beck Depression Inventory BDI, Schrag and colleagues found that the factor most strongly related to poorer quality of life was depression, although motor disability was also significantly associated. In a model predicting PDQ-39 scores, the BDI score accounted for 54% of the variance, whereas motor disability scores accounted for only 15%. Clinical variables that may impact quality of life were explored, including overall cognitive status, disease severity, and side of motor onset, as well as age, education level, and gender. These variables included the anxiety score BAI, the depression score BDI-II, and the overall measure of cognitive status DRS. Together, these mood symptoms accounted for 39% of the variance in quality of life. Although cognitive status DRS scores correlated significantly with quality of life scores, it did not explain any further variance when anxiety and depression...

... Health Wire. Cancer Patient Quality of Life. Improving Quality of Life for Cancer Patients. Thursday, 21 Feb 2013 11:12 AM. Close More ways to share... Short URL. Email Article. Comment. New research by the Mayo Clinic suggests it s equally important for cancer patients to successfully manage the stress that, by nature, accompanies a diagnosis and therapy. The study, published this month in the journal Cancer, indicates easing stress, combatting fatigue, and addressing other quality-of-life issues greatly improve patients sense of well-being during cancer treatment and aids recovery. Patients who follow standard routines, without taking steps to manage their stress, showed a decline in quality-of-life measures, the study found. But other factors including stress, fatigue, pain, and spiritual uncertainty can severely diminish patients quality of life during and after treatment. To address these issues, Mayo cancer care specialists created a six-session program involving physical therapy exercises to impro...

(1/6397) Constitutional, biochemical and lifestyle correlates of fibrinogen and factor VII activity in Polish urban and rural populations.

BACKGROUND: Fibrinogen and factor VII activity are known to be related to atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, but population differences in clotting factors and modifiable characteristics that influence their levels have not been widely explored. METHODS: This paper examines correlates of plasma fibrinogen concentration and factor VII activity in 2443 men and women aged 35-64 in random samples selected from the residents in two districts in urban Warsaw (618 men and 651 women) and from rural Tarnobrzeg Province (556 men and 618 women) screened in 1987-1988, and assesses which characteristics might explain urban-rural differences. Fibrinogen and factor VII activity were determined using coagulation methods. RESULTS: Fibrinogen was 12.9 mg/dl higher in men and 14.1 mg/dl higher in women in Tarnobrzeg compared to Warsaw. Factor VII activity was higher in Warsaw (9.2% in men and 15.3% in women). After adjustment for selected characteristics, fibrinogen was higher in smokers compared to non-smokers by 28 mg/dl in men and 22 mg/dl in women. In women, a 15 mg/dl increase in HDL-cholesterol was associated with a 10 mg/dl decrease in fibrinogen (P < 0.01). After adjustment for other variables, a higher factor VII activity in Warsaw remained significant (a difference of 9.4% in men and 14.8% in women). Lower fibrinogen in Warsaw remained significant only in women (15.4 mg/dl difference). CONCLUSIONS: The study confirmed that sex, age, BMI, smoking and blood lipids are related to clotting factors. However, with the exception of gender differences and smoking, associations between clotting factors and other variables were small and of questionable practical importance.  (+info)

(2/6397) The PRIME study: classical risk factors do not explain the severalfold differences in risk of coronary heart disease between France and Northern Ireland. Prospective Epidemiological Study of Myocardial Infarction.

We are studying the contribution of risk and genetic factors, and their interaction, to the development of ischaemic heart disease (IHD) and other cardiovascular endpoints. The study is prospective, based in three centres in the south, east and north of France and in Northern Ireland. A total of 10,592 men aged 50-59 years were recruited from 1991 to 1993, and examined for evidence of IHD at baseline. Subjects are followed annually by questionnaire. Clinical information is validated from hospital and GP records. Demographic characteristics were similar in all four centres. Body mass index was highest in Strasbourg (mean 27.4 kg/m2 vs. 26.3 kg/m2 in Toulouse and Belfast), but total cholesterol, triglyceride and fibrinogen were highest in Belfast. In Belfast, 6.1% reported having had a coronary angiogram, compared to 3.0% in Toulouse. Conversely, 13.8% in Toulouse reported taking lipid-lowering drugs vs. 1.6% in Belfast. As predicted, a history of myocardial infarction (MI) was highest in Belfast (6.1%) and lowest in Toulouse (1.2%). Some 7.1% of Belfast men reported a medical diagnosis of angina vs. 1.5% in Toulouse. Subjects showing evidence of pre-existing IHD will be studied prospectively but treated in the analysis as an additional variable. These results provide a measure of reassurance that these cohorts are representative of the communities from which they are drawn and provide a reliable baseline for prospective evaluation and cross-sectional comparisons. The levels of the classical risk factors found in this study, particularly when examined in combination, as multiple logistic functions based on previous British studies, are very similar between centres and cannot explain the large differences in the incidence of IHD which exist. Additional risk factors may help explain, at least in part, the major differences in incidence of IHD between these study centres.  (+info)

(3/6397) Why do short term workers have high mortality?

Increased mortality is often reported among workers in short term employment. This may indicate either a health-related selection process or the presence of different lifestyle or social conditions among short term workers. The authors studied these two aspects of short term employment among 16,404 Danish workers in the reinforced plastics industry who were hired between 1978 and 1985 and were followed to the end of 1988. Preemployment hospitalization histories for 1977-1984 were ascertained and were related to length of employment between 1978 and 1988. Workers who had been hospitalized prior to employment showed a 20% higher risk of early termination of employment than those never hospitalized (rate ratio (RR) = 1.20, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.16-1.29), and the risk increased with number of hospitalizations. For workers with two or more preemployment hospitalizations related to alcohol abuse or violence, the rate ratios for short term employment were 2.30 (95% CI 1.74-3.06) and 1.86 (95% CI 1.35-2.56), respectively. An unhealthy lifestyle may also be a determinant of short term employment. While it is possible in principle to adjust for lifestyle factors if proper data are collected, the health-related selection of workers requires careful consideration when choosing a reference group for comparative studies of cumulative occupational exposure.  (+info)

(4/6397) Reliability of information on physical activity and other chronic disease risk factors among US women aged 40 years or older.

Data on chronic disease risk behaviors and related variables, including barriers to and attitudes toward physical activity, are lacking for women of some racial/ethnic groups. A test-retest study was conducted from July 1996 through June 1997 among US women (n = 199) aged 40 years or more who were white, black, American Indian/Alaska Native, or Hispanic. The sample was selected and interviews were conducted using a modified version of the methods of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. For behavioral risk factors such as physical inactivity, smoking, and low fruit and vegetable consumption, group prevalences were generally similar between interviews 1 and 2. However, kappa values for selected physical activity variables ranged from 0.26 to 0.51 and tended to be lower for black women. Discordance was low for variables on cigarette smoking and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (kappa = 0.64-0.92). Discordance was high (kappa = 0.33) for low consumption of fruits and vegetables. Additional variables for barriers to and access to exercise ranged widely across racial/ethnic groups and in terms of measures of agreement. These methods illustrate an efficient way to sample and assess the reliability of data collected from women of racial/ethnic minority groups.  (+info)

(5/6397) Factors influencing tackle injuries in rugby union football.

OBJECTIVES: To assess the influence of selected aspects of lifestyle, personality, and other player related factors on injuries in the tackle. To describe the detailed circumstances in which these tackles occurred. METHODS: A prospective case-control study was undertaken in which the tackling and tackled players ("the cases") involved in a tackle injury were each matched with "control" players who held the same respective playing positions in the opposing teams. A total of 964 rugby matches involving 71 senior clubs drawn from all districts of the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) were observed by nominated linkmen who administered self report questionnaires to the players identified as cases and controls. Information on lifestyle habits, match preparation, training, and coaching experience was obtained. A validated battery of psychological tests assessed players' trait anger and responses to anger and hostility. The circumstances of the tackles in which injury occurred were recorded by experienced SRU coaching staff in interviews with involved players after the match. RESULTS: A total of 71 tackle injury episodes with correct matching of cases and controls were studied. The following player related factors did not contribute significantly to tackle injuries: alcohol consumption before the match, feeling "below par" through minor illness, the extent of match preparation, previous coaching, or practising tackling. Injured and non-injured players in the tackle did not differ in their disposition toward, or expression of, anger or hostility. Some 85% of tackling players who were injured were three quarters, and 52% of injuries occurred when the tackle came in behind the tackled player or within his peripheral vision. Either the tackling or tackled player was sprinting or running in all of these injury episodes. One third of injuries occurred in differential speed tackles--that is, when one player was travelling much faster than the other at impact. The player with the lower momentum was injured in 80% of these cases. Forceful or crunching tackles resulting in injury mostly occurred head on or within the tackled player's side vision. CONCLUSIONS: Attention should be focused on high speed tackles going in behind the tackled player's line of vision. Comparative information on the circumstances of the vast majority of tackles in which no injury occurs is required before any changes are considered to reduce injuries in the tackle.  (+info)

(6/6397) Cancer incidence in the south Asian population of England (1990-92).

Cancer incidence among English south Asians (residents in England with ethnic origins in India, Pakistan or Bangladesh) is described and compared with non-south Asian and Indian subcontinent rates. The setting for the study was areas covered by Thames, Trent, West Midlands and Yorkshire cancer registries. The study identified 356 555 cases of incident cancer (ICD9:140-208) registered between 1990 and 1992, including 3845 classified as English south Asian. The main outcome measures were age specific and directly standardized incidence rates for all cancer sites (ICD9:140-208). English south Asian incidence rates for all sites combined were significantly lower than non-south Asian rates but higher than Indian subcontinent rates. English south Asian rates were substantially higher than Indian subcontinent rates for a number of common sites including lung cancer in males, breast cancer in females and lymphoma in both sexes. English south Asian rates for childhood and early adult cancer (0-29 years) were similar or higher than non-south Asian rates. English south Asian rates were significantly higher than non-south Asian rates for Hodgkin's disease in males, cancer of the tongue, mouth, oesophagus, thyroid gland and myeloid leukaemia in females, and cancer of the hypopharynx, liver and gall bladder in both sexes. The results are consistent with a transition from the lower cancer risk of the country of ethnic origin to that of the country of residence. They suggest that detrimental changes in lifestyle and other exposures have occurred in the migrant south Asian population.  (+info)

(7/6397) Exposure to indoor background radiation and urinary concentrations of 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine, a marker of oxidative DNA damage.

We investigated whether exposure to indoor [gamma]-radiation and radon might be associated with enough free radical formation to increase urinary concentrations of 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), a sensitive marker of DNA damage, due to a hydroxyl radical attack at the C8 of guanine. Indoor radon and [gamma]-radiation levels were measured in 32 dwellings for 6 months by solid-state nuclear track detectors and thermoluminescent dosimeters, respectively. Urine samples for 8-OHdG determinations were obtained from 63 healthy adult subjects living in the measured dwellings. An overall tendency toward increasing levels of 8-OHdG with increasing levels of radon and [gamma]-radiation was seen in the females, presumably due to their estimated longer occupancy in the dwellings measured. Different models were considered for females, with the steepest slopes obtained for [gamma]-radiation with a coefficient of 0.500 (log nmol/l of 8-OHdG for each unit increase of [gamma]-radiation on a log scale) (p<0.01), and increasing to 0.632 (p = 0.035), but with larger variance, when radon was included in the model. In conclusion, there seems to be an effect of indoor radioactivity on the urinary excretion of 8-OHdG for females, who are estimated to have a higher occupancy in the dwellings measured than for males, for whom occupational and other agents may also influence 8-OHdG excretion. ree radicals; [gamma]-radiation; radon.  (+info)

(8/6397) Age, sex, and smoking are predictors of circulating insulin-like growth factor 1 and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 3.

PURPOSE: Insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) and its major binding protein (IGF-BP3) have recently been implicated in the pathogenesis of several malignancies. However, anthropometric and lifestyle predictors of these hormones have not been elucidated. Here we report the results of a cross-sectional study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study examines the relationship of a series of epidemiologic parameters (age, sex, height, body mass index, smoking, alcohol consumption, and coffee drinking) with IGF-1 and IGF-BP3 in a sample of 130 healthy adults. RESULTS: We observed that serum levels of IGF-1 are higher, whereas levels of IGF-BP3 are lower, in men than in women. In addition, serum levels of IGF-1 are independently and negatively associated with age and positively associated with pack-year history of smoking. Finally, serum levels of IGF-BP3 are independently and negatively associated with the number of cigarettes smoked per day or pack-year history of smoking. CONCLUSION: Age, sex, and smoking are independent predictors of IGF-1 and/or IGF-BP3. The influence of these epidemiologic variables on the pathogenesis of disease states associated with IGF-1 and IGF-BP3 warrants further exploration.  (+info)


how can a person who is highly prone to becoming overweight due to their genetics live an enjoyable life style?


Considering people who are prone to becoming obese should aviod junk food; sweets and, fast food. As well as living a partying life style that involves drinking on weekends can lead to obesity as well.

How do I get out of my sedentary life style?


I live a sedentary life style and don't get much exercise. I sit most of the day and don't walk around much. I try to eat healthy by eating oatmeal every morning and sandwiches for lunch but at dinner I'm not as healthy. Is there anyway I can start working out and start an active life style? How can I make healthier choices?
----------

I am middle aged 45 years old male and want start leading a healthier life style. Though i feel fit?


I do walk for at least 45 mins per day.
I want to start jogging as i am wish to lose a bit of weight and reduce my waist.
I therefore would like some advice on this and what good trainers would you recommend for jogging ? and ay tips on having a healthier life style. I do not drink alcohol nor do i smoke.
Thank you very much for your advice.
----------

I studied public health intensely for many years and studied health care topics such as diabetes, heart disease, STD, depression, poverty, domestic violence, teen pregnancy, health care reform, electronic medical records, medical devices, etc.  The list is long.  I listened to many lectures from physicians and epidemiologists on how to prevent diabetes and heart disease.

You are doing the right thing in starting exercise.  The best thing is to start slowly and gradually work your way up in intensity.  Get a check-up from a physician to screen for any conditions before starting serious exercise.  You can start out walking or slow-jogging and gradually build up to five kilometer races, 10 kilometer, etc.  At that point, you can join a running group.  I recommend joining a gym like 24 hour fitness, Gold's Gym, Bally's, YMCA, etc. to use the cardio machines.  For older individuals, joint pain can be tough while running.  If that is the case, then try the stationary bike, elliptical machine, stair master, etc.  There are many options.

Diet is also important.  It's important to include a lot of fiber.  Natural fiber comes from fruits and vegetables like bananas, tomatoes, apples, etc.  Avoid high-sugar foods like pop tarts, maple syrup, cherry pie, etc (unless in occasional moderation).  I eat fiber bars reguarly and lost weight without trying.  The fiber bars make you feel full.  The grocery store has many low-cal/high fiber foods.  I always get "Healthy Choice" or "Smart Choice" by Weight Watchers.  They work.  I also get a lot of soup with low sodium.  Fish is also healthy for omega acids.  Raw almonds at 100 calories per pack are also good.  For running, try Natural Valley Oatmeal Bars - the soluble fiber is good.  

I am in my early 40s and still play campus intramural basketball at a local university.  When I was 39, I felt like I was too old to play basketball with college students.  So I started running half marathons.  At one race, an 18 year old high school student ran with me and told me I should keep playing campus basketball because he thought I was still fast.  So I did, and it's awesome.  I have since escalated my intensity to full marathons and play basketball with teenage friends - lol.

I still like to go into the gym and do the 1980s type of workout.  I used to wrestle in high school.  I also played basketball and football.  I'm glad I still play full court basketball in 2011 with modern teens.

----------

It really shouldn’t impact your lifestyle much as a friend or care giver.  Type II is managed by diet, medication and exercise.  Some do not follow all three, while others do.   A diabetic diet is no more complicated than someone trying to watch their weight, cholesterol, or simply trying to just eat healthier.    Medication is taken orally as little as once daily and some Type II diabetics don’t really even need medication at all.   Exercise is helpful and can be a trip to the gym or simply walks in the neighborhood.  All in all, it just promotes a more health conscious lifestyle.    Once you are aware of what Type II diabetes is and how to manage it, the lifestyle is quite simple and doesn’t really affect those around.   There will be times where a diabetic becomes Hypo, in which case the blood sugar is low, and needs a snack like some juice, granola bar, or candy to bring it up just a bit.


how to lead a healthier life style and lose weight when I have no time?


I am really busy this summer and will be even more busy when school starts, but I really want to lose weight and develop a more healthy life style low on fats, carbs and high in exercise. I am definitely going to start eating healthier, but how do I lose weight and become healthier when I don't have time to exercise?
Freaky Deaky, if your answer is supposed to be a joke, its not funny. Its rude
How many hours a week or how much time should I spend in exercising?
----------

If you don't have that much time to exercise let's try some exercises you can do in short amounts of time that will provide a lot of benefit!

When you diet, you don't have to necessary cut out carbs and fats- just keep track of how much you consume. An ideal meal would be under 15 grams of fat which is easy to consume if you have some baked chips, wheat bread, and grilled chicken but not everyone does! What has helped me lose 35 pounds in the past 3 months has been eating smaller portions and limiting my caloric intake to what is proper for someone trying to lose 2 pounds a week. You can find a lot of websites that'll tell you how many calories you should consume to lose 2 pounds a week with minimum activity just by entering your height and body weight.

As for exercises, try hindu squats. These have been my favorite for burning fat and getting your heart rate up really quick! The first day doing these is going to be really difficult because your body isn't used to it and you might have to take a little bit of a break afterward, but try and make it to twenty and gradually increase the amount you do each day. Here's how you do it: 

Stand with your legs shoulder width apart and your hands outstretched in front of you. Take a deep breath in and drop your body into a squatting position while exhaling. Propel yourself upward on your toes and repeat. This will heighten your heart rate and burn calories FAST.

Also, crunches are a less time consuming exercise to do as well. Try resting your legs on your bed and your back on your floor with your arms SUPPORTING your head, not pulling on it. Lift your body to ten and then hold that position on the tenth for a couple of seconds, do this fifty times. 

Those exercises and that diet plan alone will help you lose a few pounds and allow you to be healthier! I hope this works out for you!


Edit: Let me mention that your body NEEDS carbs and fats to support muscle mass and that is what you'll be building during this exercise! Atkins and the media have told us that carbs and fats are bad for you and they ARE WRONG. Your body cannibalizes itself when you don't have carbs and that's how people on Atkins lose weight. THAT IS NOT HEALTHY. As long as you are building muscle you NEED carbs and fats in order to support it and continue weight loss.

Hello

My staff works 24/7 and that means some of them are doing night shifts.
It could a very fun experience.
You just sleep in the morning until the after noon and wake up, eat, work out, do arrangements and go to work again at night.
During work try not to eat heavy meals, just drink coffee and maybe a snack here and there.
Have fun with other workers in the night shift because they are like you.
Hope this help

Is it good to eat 742 calories a day as a life style ?


I'm 14 , 5'3 Now i'm 92 pounds i didnt reach my goal weight witch is 88 pounds I couldnt !!
So know i eat 742 calories a day as a life style and i dont feel hungry will I gain weight ? I used to eat 242 calories a day ?
My daily need is 1400 but i feel like its too much !!
Will i loose weight if i ate 742 calories a day ?
----------

For everyones sake, eat a sandwich!

Skinny people can be unattractive, especially at that weight and age. I expect you're trolling so I won't go to far into detail, but you need to gain weight. Being anywhere under 110 for your age is pretty disgusting.

If you ate 742 calories a day, you would probably lose weight, yes, but that is not healthy.
