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.

(1/353) Radon and lung cancer: a cost-effectiveness analysis.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the cost-effectiveness of general and targeted strategies for residential radon testing and mitigation in the United States. METHODS: A decision-tree model was used to perform a cost-effectiveness analysis of preventing radon-associated deaths from lung cancer. RESULTS: For a radon threshold of 4 pCi/L, the estimated costs to prevent 1 lung cancer death are about $3 million (154 lung cancer deaths prevented), or $480,000 per life-year saved, based on universal radon screening and mitigation, and about $2 million (104 lung cancer deaths prevented), or $330,000 per life-year saved, if testing and mitigation are confined to geographic areas at high risk for radon exposure. For mitigation undertaken after a single screening test and after a second confirmatory test, the estimated costs are about $920,000 and $520,000, respectively, to prevent a lung cancer death with universal screening and $130,000 and $80,000 per life-year for high risk screening. The numbers of preventable lung cancer deaths are 811 and 527 for universal and targeted approaches, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest possible alternatives to current recommendations.  (+info)

(2/353) Morbidity and mortality attributable to alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug use in Canada.

OBJECTIVES: This study estimated morbidity and mortality attributable to substance abuse in Canada. METHODS: Pooled estimates of relative risk were used to calculate etiologic fractions by age, gender, and province for 91 causes of disease or death attributable to alcohol, tobacco, or illicit drugs. RESULTS: There were 33,498 deaths and 208,095 hospitalizations attributed to tobacco, 6701 deaths and 86,076 hospitalizations due to alcohol, and 732 deaths and 7095 hospitalizations due to illicit drugs in 1992. CONCLUSIONS: Substance abuse exacts a considerable toll on Canadian society in terms of morbidity and mortality, accounting for 21% of deaths, 23% of years of potential life lost, and 8% of hospitalizations.  (+info)

(3/353) AIDS: what does economics have to offer?

AIDS is rapidly becoming a major health problem in developing countries. Limited empirical information is available about the impact of AIDS on the household, the community, the health sector and the broader economy. Special problems exist in estimating the direct economic costs of AIDS in developing countries, including large out-of-pocket expenditures on health care and shortages of drugs and supplies; the difficulties of valuing resources used in caring for people with AIDS; and the lack of treatment alternatives. The calculation of indirect costs is complicated by difficulties in calculating the value of non-market production and international comparisons of the value of healthy life years lost may be erroneous, due to the higher level of average wages in developed countries. Existing evidence on the impact of AIDS at the household, community, sectoral and macroeconomic level is reviewed. Special attention is given to the impact of AIDS on the health sector and the resource allocation decisions which are made at this level. A policy-relevant research strategy would include addressing the particular information needs of the health sector, as well as studies which can help to inform government policy to mitigate the impact of AIDS at the household, community, sectoral and macroeconomic levels.  (+info)

(4/353) Using cost-effectiveness analysis to evaluate targeting strategies: the case of vitamin A supplementation.

Given the demonstrated efficacy of vitamin A supplements in reducing childhood mortality, health officials now have to decide whether it would be efficient to target the supplements to high risk children. Decisions about targeting are complex because they depend on a number of factors; the degree of clustering of preventable deaths, the cost of the intervention, the side-effects of the intervention, the cost of identifying the high risk group, and the accuracy of the 'diagnosis' of risk. A cost-effectiveness analysis was used in the Philippines to examine whether vitamin A supplements should be given universally to all children 6-59 months, targeted broadly to children suffering from mild, moderate, or severe malnutrition, or targeted narrowly to pre-schoolers with moderate and severe malnutrition. The first year average cost of the universal approach was US$67.21 per death averted compared to $144.12 and $257.20 for the broad and narrow targeting approaches respectively. When subjected to sensitivity analysis the conclusion about the most cost-effective strategy was robust to changes in underlying assumptions such as the efficacy of supplements, clustering of deaths, and toxicity. Targeting vitamin A supplements to high risk children is not an efficient use of resources. Based on the results of this cost-effectiveness analysis and a consideration of alternate strategies, it is apparent that vitamin A, like immunization, should be provided to all pre-schoolers in the developing world. Issues about targeting public health interventions can usefully be addressed by cost-effectiveness analysis.  (+info)

(5/353) The influence of day of life in predicting the inpatient costs for providing care to very low birth weight infants.

The purpose of this study was to test, refine, and extend a statistical model that adjusts neonatal intensive care costs for a very low birth weight infant's day of life and birth weight category. Subjects were 62 infants with birth weights below 1,501 g who were born and cared for in a university hospital until discharged home alive. Subjects were stratified into 250-g birth weight categories. Clinical and actual daily room and ancillary-resource costs for each day of care of each infant were tabulated. Data were analyzed by using a nonlinear regression procedure specifying two separate for modeling. The modeling was performed with data sets that both included and excluded room costs. The former set of data were used for generating a model applicable for comparing interhospital performances and the latter for comparing interphysician performances. The results confirm the existence of a strong statistical relationship between an infant's day of life and both total hospital costs and the isolated costs for ancillary-resource alone (P < 0.0001). A refined series of statistical models have been generated that are applicable to the assessment of either interhospital or interphysician costs associated with providing inpatient care to very low birth weight infants.  (+info)

(6/353) Cost implications of selective preoperative risk screening in the care of candidates for peripheral vascular operations.

The preoperative identification that patients are at high risk for adverse postoperative outcomes is the first step toward preventing costly in-hospital complications. The economic implications of noninvasive screening strategies in the care of patients undergoing peripheral vascular operations must be clarified. A decision model was developed from the peer-reviewed literature on patients undergoing preoperative screening by means of dipyridamole myocardial perfusion imaging, dobutamine echocardiography, or cardiac catheterization before vascular operations (n = 23 studies). Routine versus selective screening strategies were compared for patients with an intermediate likelihood of having coronary artery disease on the basis of clinical history of coronary disease or typical symptoms. Median costs (1994 US dollars) of preoperative screening strategies were derived with two microcosting approaches: adjusted Medicare charges (top-down approach) and a bottom-up approach with Duke University Center direct cost estimate data. In-hospital cost was 11% higher for preoperative screening by means of routine cardiac catheterization ($27,760) than for routine pharmacologic stress imaging ($24,826, P = 0.001). The total cost of a do-nothing strategy, that is, no preoperative testing, was 5.9% less than that of routine preoperative pharmacologic stress imaging and 15.9% lower than that of cardiac catheterization (P = 0.001). Selective screening among patients with a history of coronary disease or typical angina resulted in further reduction of the cost of care to a level comparable with that of a do-nothing strategy (52.5% reduction in cost with pharmacologic stress imaging, P > 0.20). Use of noninvasive testing for preoperative risk stratification was cost effective for patients 60 to 80 years of age. Cost per life saved ranged from $33,338 to $21,790. However, coronary revascularization after an abnormal noninvasive test was cost effective only for patients older than 70 years. In this economic decision model, substantial cost savings were predicted when selective noninvasive stress imaging was added to preoperative screening for patients about to undergo vascular operations. With a selective screening approach, the economic impact of initial diagnostic testing may be minimized without compromising patient outcomes.  (+info)

(7/353) Economic benefits of aggressive lipid lowering: a managed care perspective.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) has high prevalence in the United States and is associated with significant mortality as well as costs to society. Hyperlipidemia is a major and common modifiable risk factor for CHD. In clinical trials, cholesterol-lowering strategies have a dramatic impact on CHD risk, cardiovascular events, and mortality. Cost-effectiveness data have established that clinical and economic benefits are gained by instituting early and aggressive lipid-lowering therapy. We present new evidence for the clinical benefits and cost effectiveness of aggressive lipid-lowering therapy as primary or secondary prevention of CHD and describe strategies that managed care organizations can take to benefit from a lipid management program.  (+info)

(8/353) Looking beyond the formulary budget in cost-benefit analysis.

With the introduction of newer, more expensive psychotropic medications, healthcare providers and managed care administrators must consider whether these drugs offer "value for the money." A true picture of the benefits of these drugs emerges only when all the costs of treatment are considered. Focusing exclusively on the acquisition cost of the drug can result in a misleading impression of the drug's worth. Although the medication costs associated with treating a patient with a newer drug increase, use of these agents may actually result in an overall decrease in healthcare costs, through reductions in hospitalization and length of stay, use of mental health services, and prescriptions for adjunctive drugs. In one study of the newer antipsychotic agent risperidone, the overall annual costs of treating a patient with schizophrenia were reduced by nearly $8,000 (Canadian dollars), even though medication costs increased by approximately $1,200 (Canadian dollars). Retrospective and prospective pharmacoeconomic studies can provide valuable data on the cost effectiveness of treatment with newer psychotropic medications.  (+info)


What is the life cycle of Malaria and where is it controlled?


What is the life cycle of Malaria and where is it controlled?
Use a specific example to demonstrate how knowledge of a pathogenic (i.e. disease-causing) Protist's life cycle can be used to control its spread.
----------

"What is the life cycle of Malaria and where is it controlled?"  --  Malaria doesn't have a life cycle.  It's a disease.  Are you actually asking about the parasite?

"Use a specific example to demonstrate how knowledge of a pathogenic (i.e. disease-causing) Protist's life cycle can be used to control its spread."  --   Knowledge of the life-cycle of the malaria parasite is used when developing antimalarial drugs so that they work in a specific way to disrupt that life-cycle.  Interruption of the life-cycle, whether metabolic or reproductive will control the disease and thereby control the spread of it.


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.


What is the typical life expectancy for someone who receives an organ transplant?


Specifically liver. 

Is the life expectancy of a transplant recipient different when it is a child vs. an adult?

Also, is it a matter of when, not if, the organ will ultimately reject?
----------

You cannot compare one against the other since there are many factors involved.  Example:  If a person has liver failure from alcohol abuse and then receives a transplant and never drinks again, this person can live to be very very old and never have any liver problems again.  Another example:  A person has liver failure from hepatitis C and receives a transplant.  The hep C does not go away and attacks the new liver which eventually destroys it also.  This person might need more than one transplant throughout their life.  I talked with a man in my transplant center who was waiting on his third transplant due to having hep C.  

Everything depends on what is causing the problem in the first place.  If you can get rid of whatever has destroyed the liver, then the person should have a normal lifespan.  I don't know much of anything about children having transplants, so can't help you on that.  I do know one child who had a transplant when he was 7.  He is now 17 and doing great.  

The organ should not reject as long as the person takes anti rejection drugs.   The drugs they have today are very good at stopping rejection.  I've had mine for 5 years now and have not had even a hint of any rejection problem.  Even if it would start to reject, they usually are able to stop it.  There are some rare cases in which people do not need to take any anti rejection drugs, but as I said, this is extremely rare.  I had cirrhosis from an autoimmune disease and had to get a transplant.  I do not worry about rejection at all.  I worry more about my autoimmune system attacking my new liver more than anything.  That would be the one thing that might cause me to need a second transplant.


How can you face people when your life is a complete and total mess?


I feel that my life is a complete and total mess and can not face people. 

My job is not working out  (long hours and sweat shop mentality), but I am staying there until I find another job. 

My daughter is 14 and lives with her Dad in another state.  He is not able to manage her and she does not want to come and live with me. He is also planning to move soon due to relocation of his job. 

I feel that I should be punished or made to feel bad because I left my ex-husband and ruined my child's life.  I don't have anything positive to focus on except the fact that I am alive.  I basically feel that I am a terrible person for what I have done.  I have hurt my child so much and should pay for it. 

How do I find the courage and strength to carry on?  The only thing that I can think of is prayer. I don't know what else to do. 

My life is a train wreck compared to everyone else's and its not getting any better.
----------

Hi,
It sounds like you are already paying for it with the guilt and punishing yourself.  That is what we do best, but not the long term answer. first of all the ones that do suffer when two parents split up are the kids, the tug of war or not seeing the other parent.

You now have to think positive and what your daughter is gaining during the tough teen years, and you have to begin with "liking you" You are not a mess nor a train wreck you are human, if life came with a manual of how to get through it we would all have the right answers. so, since that is not the case we have to make the best of it. 

I have no doubt you are a good person simply becasue you are torturing yourself so much and accepting so much blame.  

You have to find some "peace" and by that start by making a list of all your good qualities, yes, go ahead and really list all your good points and the things you have done for others.  Take a look at that list and see, "you are someone special" you can and will expect things to go your way because you have the power to make the next move toward whatever you want,  jobs? lifestyle and your own personal relationship happiness.  You can sit and be unhappy and put more blame on yourself or you can chuck it up to "the past, it is done, it was then and this is now"  Think of the now and take a good look in the mirror and see, really see you are and will be what you want.  

We all make mistakes but we don't have to spend months and years paying for what is a done deal.  It may be a bit of a struggle but you have to use your inner strength and if you believe in prayer, good, that will also help..if God is a forgiving God why can't you forgive yourself and move ahead?  

I am not an overly religious person, i believe that God is to all of us what we need God to be.. and it is different for everyone.

If you knew the obstacles and challanges i have been through and dang it i wouldn't give up, i am a fighter and i believe that things can always be worse.  

The time will come when you can talk to your daughter, don't worry about that right now.

I wish you all the best, take care and be safe, and smile, somone here believes in you.

What is the life expectancy of a male hispanic with type two diabetes?


We are looking for a life expectancy chart or any kind of
research that would help us get more information in this area.
----------

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 shelf life of unopened cosmetics?


I know the details of the shelf life of certain makeup products that you have already used. But, say you stock up on items because it is on sale. Is the shelf life the same? Or can you keep it longer since it is unused and unopened?
----------

The shelf life starts from the time you open the cosmetics in most cases till any specific expiry date is not mentioned.


What is your life like after living through a life of binge eating?


Have you successfully stopped binge eating?
What is your story?
How has your life changed now?

Im looking to see the view points of people who have succeeded and moved past a life of binge eating. Why you did it and how you cope with it now.

Thank you for all answers.

I was a binge eater for years.  I tried to be "skinny" for my boyfriends and seemed to always get the guys that wanted the skinny girl.  I realized that I have curves and there ARE men that like them - finally!!!!  I did some soul searching, and started to read about health and fitness...and started to eat the RIGHT fat burning foods.  I stopped obsessing about my thighs and started to simply LIVE a healthy life.  I do all kinds of cardio exercises and added weight training (a bit) to help me burn fat all around the clock - even when I sleep!  That's what weight training does.  Being a female and doing weights does NOT mean you will get bulky.  We simply get toned and lean and strong.  I eat junk food - for fun - only once in a while...but the MAJORITY of the time...I eat the best and healthiest fat burning foods to help me along with staying in shape and yes...I still have curves, but they're strong now!  Binge eating is usually caused by unhappiness...and finding out and dealing with what you're unhappy about is what you need to do FIRST.  Make some changes...get happy and you probably won't binge eat.  Don't let other people control your happiness.  I married a man that prefers a very thin model-like figure...but after getting strong, fit and healthy and showing that I love myself...with more confidence...he sees a healthy attractive woman!  I eat for me now...and that means whatever amount I feel is best for me as well.  It took YEARS to get over this binge type of eating...but I found that with regular exercise and eating well...and ACCEPTING my physical shape...I am happier and don't want to binge eat any more.  It starts from within.  My life has changed dramatically and for the better.  But I had to do the work myself.  No one else could do it for me.  If it were that easy, no one would be binge eating.  Finding out WHY you're unhappy is the first step...and take it from there.  Never give up on yourself.  You CAN do it!  I did...and I was the woman eating in the closet...believe me!  I ended up doing three figure competitions.  It IS possible!  Just DO IT!..I have had 5 children by c-sections, and now I walk with my teenagers and people think I'm one of them (from far of course)! If I can stop binge eating...anyone can!


What is the shelf life of ground pecans and walnuts?


I have a dry recipe with various flours that I know approximately the shelf life, but I still need to know the shelf life of the ground pecans and ground walnuts. They are being ground to somewhere between 1/16 inch and flour. How long before they begin to noticeably go rancid? They'll be stored completely dry and sealed from additional air (like in the traditional cake mix plastic bag packages).
----------

I store all kinds of nuts in the freezer or the refrigerator.
No worries about shelf life as long as they are fresh when purchased.
Flour is stored in a sealed Tupperware in a pantry and I bake often, so my flour is used up(5 Lb) per month or faster. I have no problems with my stored ingredients.The only thing that requires more attention is raisins., which sometimes get dry and I just soak them in a tablespoon of sweet Liquor and microwave them for 1 minute before I bake them into bran muffins. Sorry  I gave you more than asked, too much information.
