AMELIA'S HEALTHY LIFE: Carbs. Perfect Health Diet Experiment. AMELIA'S HEALTHY LIFE. Home Why Paleo. Carbs. Perfect Health Diet Experiment. OK, so are you SICK of all my food experiments yet. Then, I started baking. The Perfect Health Diet PHD. The PHD is not a high carb diet, it s just not as low as more traditional versions of Paleo, especially as it s articulated for weight loss. If your diet just doesn t contain that missing thing, overeating will result in added weight but still leave you malnourished, continuing to seek relief through eating yet more. The basic idea is to shoot for 30% carbs, 15-20% protein, and 50-55% fat by calories. Skip breakfast - can use Bulletproof Coffee since fat doesn t interfere with benefits of fasting. Starchy Carbs four fist-sized servings of starch per day potatoes, rice, etc, which works out to be 1-2 fists at lunch and dinner; it s key to eat starch coupled with fat, non-starchy veggies, and some sort of acid like lemon juice or vinegar for blood sugar regulation reason...

Quality of Life at the End of Life for Your Dog. Alice Villalobos, a veterinary oncologist, has developed a quality-of-life scale for dogs so that owners can act on behalf of their beloved animal family members as a pet s end of life approaches. The quality-of-life scale helps owners act on behalf of their beloved animal family members as a dog s end of life approaches. More good days than bad: 1 10 When there are too many bad days in a row, or if the dog seems to be turned off to life, quality of life is compromised. It is important to plan for the end of life before that time arrives, and the quality-of-life scale can help with that planning.

... 'Symptom targeted intervention' STI is a therapeutic model and clinical program that social worker s and other mental health practitioner s and medical professionals can use to assist patients with chronic diseases who are having difficulty coping, including those suffering from emotional distress, depression, anxiety, poor engagement and poor clinical outcomes. 5 Studies suggest that at least 25% of dialysis patients have clinical depression and at least 35% have symptoms that put them at risk for depression. This short period of intervention led to a reported improvement in physical component summary and mental component summary scores part of the Short Form Health Survey SF-36 patient evaluation in 51% and 64% of patients, respectively, and improvement in CES-D scores in 72.1% of patients.

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...

Minor home repairs result in major life improvement Work benefits older adults who can’t do it themselves. There’s a bit of immediate success in making minor repairs for people that Stan Mayer enjoys, which is part of what drew him to volunteer for Jewish Family Service of San Diego. “And thus it began.” Mayer, a retired mechanical engineer who ran his own business in Pennsylvania before coming to San Diego, estimates that he spends between 10 to 15 hours each week working on projects for JFS Fix-It Service. The program trains volunteers to provide additional assistance to older adults and their caregivers through minor home safety repairs and modifications, according to the program’s website. He’s done repair work all over the county — including in Chula Vista, National City, and Imperial Beach — and each job is different. In the time that he’s been volu...

LONDON, December 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The European Glaucoma Society EGS has published the second edition of its treatment guidelines for glaucoma which include the role of patient compliance and the measurement of quality of life in treatment decisions and outcome. "Visual function is closely linked to quality of life so treatment side effects, dosing schedule and cost all have to be taken into account when choosing a therapy." According to the EGS, the ultimate goal of glaucoma treatment is to maintain a patient's quality of life QoL at reasonable cost.

(2/17899) A chiropractic service arrangement for musculoskeletal complaints in industry: a pilot study.

Chiropractic services are commonly used by workers with musculoskeletal problems, especially low back and neck complaints. Research into the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of this approach is, however, difficult to design without prior pilot studies. This study followed 32 workers with these complaints attending one such service and used five measures of outcome over a 6-month period. These measured pain (VAS), disability (FLP), quality of life (SF-36), perceived benefit and satisfaction with care. Additionally, sickness costs to the companies were recorded over two years encompassing the study period. Treatment utilization was also monitored. Over half the population were chronic sufferers. The effect sizes were large for pain and for seven out of eight dimensions of the SF-36 questionnaire at 6-month follow-up, although not for disability (FLP). High levels of satisfaction and perceived improvement were reported and sickness costs to the companies fell. However, the sample size in this pilot study was small and did not include controls. We would, therefore, recommend a full cost-effectiveness study incorporating a randomized trial in this area.  (+info)

(3/17899) Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and quality of life.

The quality of life (QOL) of 79 people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and 37 non-diabetic controls was assessed using the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP). The NHP consists of six domains assessing energy, sleep, pain, physical mobility, emotional reactions and social isolation. Symptomatic diabetic neuropathy was present in 41 of the patients. The neuropathy patients had significantly higher scores (impaired QOL) in 5/6 NHP domains than either the other diabetic patients (p < 0.01) or the non-diabetic (p < 0.001) controls. These were: emotional reaction, energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep. The diabetic patients without neuropathy also had significantly impaired QOL for 4/6 NHP domains compared with the non-diabetic control group (p < 0.05) (energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep). This quantification of the detrimental effect on QOL of diabetes, and in particular of chronic symptomatic peripheral diabetic neuropathy, emphasizes the need for further research into effective management of these patients.  (+info)

(4/17899) Relative efficacy of 32P and 89Sr in palliation in skeletal metastases.

32p and 89Sr have been shown to produce significant pain relief in patients with skeletal metastases from advanced cancer. Clinically significant pancytopenia has not been reported in doses up to 12 mCi (444 MBq) of either radionuclide. To date, no reports comparing the relative efficacy and toxicity of the two radionuclides in comparable patient populations have been available. Although a cure has not been reported, both treatments have achieved substantial pain relief. However, several studies have used semiquantitative measures such as "slight," "fair," "partial" and "dramatic" responses, which lend themselves to subjective bias. This report examines the responses to treatment with 32P or 89Sr by attempting a quantification of pain relief and quality of life using the patients as their own controls and compares toxicity in terms of hematological parameters. METHODS: Thirty-one patients with skeletal metastases were treated for pain relief with either 32P (16 patients) or 89Sr (15 patients). Inclusion criteria were pain from bone scan-positive sites above a subjective score of 5 of 10 despite analgesic therapy with narcotic or non-narcotic medication, limitation of movement related to the performance of routine daily activity and a predicted life expectancy of at least 4 mo. The patients had not had chemotherapy or radiotherapy during the previous 6 wk and had normal serum creatinine, white cell and platelet counts. 32P was given orally as a 12 mCi dose, and 89Sr was given intravenously as a 4 mCi (148 MBq) dose. The patients were monitored for 4 mo. RESULTS: Complete absence of pain was seen in 7 of 16 patients who were given 32P and in 7 of 15 patients who were given 89Sr. Pain scores fell by at least 50% of the pretreatment score in 14 of 16 patients who were given 32P and 14 of 15 patients who were given 89Sr. Mean duration of pain relief was 9.6 wk with 32P and 10 wk with 89Sr. Analgesic scores fell along with the drop in pain scores. A fall in total white cell, absolute granulocyte and platelet counts occurred in all patients. Subnormal values of white cells and platelets were seen in 5 and 7 patients, respectively, with 32P, and in 0 and 4 patients, respectively, after 89Sr therapy. The decrease in platelet count (but not absolute granulocyte count) was statistically significant when 32P patients were compared with 89Sr patients. However, in no instance did the fall in blood counts require treatment. Absolute granulocyte counts did not fall below 1000 in any patient. There was no significant difference between the two treatments in terms of either efficacy or toxicity. CONCLUSION: No justification has been found in this study for the recommendation of 89Sr over the considerably less expensive oral 32P for the palliation of skeletal pain from metastases of advanced cancer.  (+info)

(5/17899) A prospective randomized study of megestrol acetate and ibuprofen in gastrointestinal cancer patients with weight loss.

The use of megestrol acetate in the treatment of weight loss in gastrointestinal cancer patients has been disappointing. The aim of the present study was to compare the combination of megestrol acetate and placebo with megestrol acetate and ibuprofen in the treatment of weight loss in such patients. At baseline, 4-6 weeks and 12 weeks, patients underwent measurements of anthropometry, concentrations of albumin and C-reactive protein and assessment of appetite, performance status and quality of life using EuroQol-EQ-5D and EORTC QLQ-C30. Thirty-eight and 35 patients (median weight loss 18%) were randomized to megestrol acetate/placebo or megestrol acetate/ibuprofen, respectively, for 12 weeks. Forty-six (63%) of patients failed to complete the 12-week assessment. Of those evaluable at 12 weeks, there was a decrease in weight (median 2.8 kg) in the megestrol acetate/placebo group compared with an increase (median 2.3 kg) in the megestrol acetate/ibuprofen group (P<0.001). There was also an improvement in the EuroQol-EQ-5D quality of life scores of the latter group (P<0.05). The combination of megestrol acetate/ibuprofen appeared to reverse weight loss and appeared to improve quality of life in patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancer. Further trials of this novel regimen in weight-losing patients with hormone-insensitive cancers are warranted.  (+info)

(6/17899) Second-line treatment for primary central nervous system lymphoma.

Failure after first-line treatment was reported in 35-60% of immunocompetent patients with primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). There are currently no reports focusing on salvage therapy. This review analyses prognostic factors and the efficacy of salvage therapy by focusing on data from papers reporting results of first-line treatment in 355 cases. The study group consisted of 173 patients presenting treatment failure. The interval between failure and death (TTD) was compared for age at relapse (< or =60 vs. >60 years), type of failure (relapse vs. progression), time to relapse (< or =12 vs. >12 months) and salvage treatment (yes vs no). Median TTD was similar in younger and older patients (P = 0.09). Relapsed patients had a longer TTD than patients with progressive disease (P = 0.002). Early relapse led to a shorter TTD than late relapse (P = 0.005). Median TTD was 14 months for patients who underwent salvage therapy and 2 months for untreated cases (P<0.00001). A multivariate analysis showed an independent prognostic role for salvage therapy and time to relapse. Age and type of failure had no predictive value. Salvage therapy significantly improves outcome and, possibly, quality of life. As many different treatments were used conclusions cannot be made regarding an optimal treatment schedule.  (+info)

(7/17899) Defining and analysing symptom palliation in cancer clinical trials: a deceptively difficult exercise.

The assessment of symptom palliation is an essential component of many treatment comparisons in clinical trials, yet an extensive literature search revealed no consensus as to its precise definition, which could embrace relief of symptoms, time to their onset, duration, degree, as well as symptom control and prevention. In an attempt to assess the importance of these aspects and to compare different methods of analysis, we used one symptom (cough) from a patient self-assessment questionnaire (the Rotterdam Symptom Checklist) in a large (>300 patient) multicentre randomized clinical trial (conducted by the Medical Research Council Lung Cancer Working Party) of palliative chemotherapy in small-cell lung cancer. The regimens compared were a two-drug regimen (2D) and a four-drug regimen (4D). No differences were seen between the regimens in time of onset of palliation or its duration. The degree of palliation was strongly related to the initial severity: 90% of the patients with moderate or severe cough at baseline reported improvement, compared with only 53% of those with mild cough. Analyses using different landmark time points gave conflicting results: the 4D regimen was superior at 1 month and at 3 months, whereas at 2 months the 2D regimen appeared superior. When improvement at any time up to 3 months was considered, the 4D regimen showed a significant benefit (4D 79%, 2D 60%, P = 0.02). These findings emphasize the need for caution in interpreting results, and the importance of working towards a standard definition of symptom palliation. The current lack of specified criteria makes analysis and interpretation of trial results difficult, and comparison across trials impossible. A standard definition of palliation for use in the analysis of clinical trials data is proposed, which takes into account aspects of onset, duration and degree of palliation, and symptom improvement, control and prevention.  (+info)

(8/17899) Is revision as good as primary hip replacement? A comparison of quality of life.

Primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most effective ways of improving quality of life (QoL). We have compared the improvement in QoL in 62 patients who had a cemented revision of a THA with that of 62 primary replacements. One year after operation the median QoL score had been significantly improved in both groups; from 0.870 to 0.990 in the primary group (p < 0.0001) and from 0.870 to 0.980 in the revised group (p < 0.0001). There was no significant difference in the improvement in scores between the groups (p = 0.29). When reviewed after four years there was no difference in the pain score for either group (p = 0.89), but that for function had deteriorated significantly. This was associated with revision surgery (p = 0.018) and a low preoperative QoL score (p = 0.004). We conclude that both primary and revision operations give a significant improvement in the QoL but function after revision may be less durable than after a primary arthroplasty.  (+info)
