Singing exercises reduce snoring

The clinical trial, by Exeter University and the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, showed that the singing exercises, which strengthen certain throat muscles, also alleviated symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea , a condition in which people stop breathing during deep sleep. Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea can result from weak muscles in the soft palate and upper throat (the pharyngeal muscles). Serious singers improve the tone and strength of these muscles by practicing certain vocal exercises. The study came about because singing teacher Alise Ojay contacted Malcolm Hilton, consultant otolaryngologist at the Exeter hospital and sub dean of the University of Exeter Medical School. Dr.

Snoring, lack of romance blamed for divorces in Saudi Arabia

A marriage contractor told Al Youm that women insist on getting a divorce due to trivial issues, like the look of the husband inside the house among many others, Gulf News reported. He added that young wives were getting influenced by the media and dramas. The drafting marriage contractors had a meeting with religious figures to discuss the figures and causes of divorce, in Al Qateef in eastern Saudi Arabia. Several measures, including the need to check on the background of prospective grooms and not relying solely on matchmakers, were suggested in the meeting to curb the increasing divorce rates in the kingdom. The religious leaders and the marriage contractors also suggested to not rush into making final decisions on ending a marriage, until all ways for a reconciliation are exhausted and the spouses be given ample time to reconsider their options.

Eliminating copays helps reduce blood pressure in Kaiser Permanente study

Debt Linked With High Blood Pressure, Poor Health Among Young Adults: Study

In 2001, the Kaiser group introduced a system-wide program involving its 1,800 primary care doctors to tackle the blood pressure problem. It created a registry of adult members with high blood pressure, based on medical records. At the start, about 44 percent of 235,000 registry patients had their blood pressure under control. The registry grew and by 2009, the portion under control reached 80 percent of 353,000 patients.

Kaiser’s Blood Pressure Study Wins in the War Against High Blood Pressure

Over the studys time span two years and progresses have been labeled as significant towards the studys overall progress: such as in 2005, they began using one pill with two drugs (lisinopril and diuretic) which proved to be cost effective as well as easier to take for consumers. The second positive was in 2007, the program began offering free follow-up visits for patients with medical assistants rather than doctors, to check blood pressure readings. This was extremely beneficial because patients did not have to pay expensive co pays, or bill insurance companies, while also having more flexible times to meet with corresponding medical assistants. Georgianna Farren, chief medical officer of the Marin Community Clinic, said, “We have just begun a focus on hypertension in our clinic and started to create lists of patients with hypertension,” Farren said.

Human eye movements for vision are remarkably adaptable

Once developed, that change in their “point of gaze” was retained over a period of weeks and was reengaged whenever their foveal vision was blocked. Tjan and his team say they were surprised by the rate of this adjustment. They note that patients with macular degeneration frequently do adapt their point of gaze, but in a process that takes months, not days or hours. They suggest that practice with a visible gray disc like the one used in the study might help speed that process of visual rehabilitation along. The discovery also reveals that the oculomotor (eye movement) system prefers control simplicity over optimality. “Gaze control by the oculomotor system, although highly automatic, is malleable in the same sense that motor control of the limbs is malleable,” Tjan says. “This finding is potentially very good news for people who lose their foveal vision due to macular diseases.

Your Eyes and Cornea Conditions

what conditions damage the cornea

The curvature of this outer layer helps determine how well your eye can focus on objects close-up and far away. There are three main layers of the cornea: Epithelium: The most superficial layer of the cornea, the epithelium stops outside matter from entering the eye. This layer of the cornea also absorbs oxygen and nutrients from tears. Stroma: The stroma is the middle and thickestlayer of the cornea and is found behind the epithelium. It is made up mostly of water and proteins that give it an elastic but solid form. Endothelium: The endothelium is a single layer of cells located between the stroma and the aqueous humor — the clear fluid found in the front and rear chambers of the eye. The endothelium works as a pump, expelling excess water as it is absorbed into the stroma.

Diabetes and eyes: What your vision is trying to tell you

Over time, diabetes may cause damage to the blood vessels in the back of the eye, known as diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME). DME occurs when the damaged blood vessels leak fluid and cause swelling. Although symptoms are not always present, this swelling can cause blurred vision, double vision and patches in vision, which may appear as small black dots or lines floating across the front of the eye. Approximately 26 million Americans have diabetes and may be at risk for DME. More than 560,000 Americans have DME.

Further Proof that Sleep is Essential for Weight Loss

A new study shows that you’re not alone – lack of sleep causes changes in your brain’s reward and rational thinking centers to make it harder to resist fatty, high-calorie foods after dark. The small study, published in the journal Nature Communications, measured the brain activity of 23 young adults when shown fatty foods like pizza and doughnuts, as well as when they were shown healthy foods like carrots and apples. The more sleep-deprived the participants, the more their brains’ reward centers lit up when shown the high-calorie foods . The study also found that lack of sleep led to impaired decision-making activity in another region of the brain.

Weight Watchers trying to cash in on desire for healthy workers

Green Tea. Recent studies show that drinking green tea causes the body to release fat and burn calories. The reason for that seems to be because of a substance found in green tea called catechins, which reduces inflammation and fat storage. Green tea also helps fight cancer and many other pro-inflammatory diseases. Dr. Zuo Feng Zhang, a researcher at the University of Maryland Medical Center, recommends drinking two to three cups a day.

Study: High blood sugar, but not necessarily diabetes, raises dementia risk

Advocate South Suburban Hospital Diabetes Education Program Merits ADA Recognition

At the start, 232 participants had diabetes; the rest did not. They each had at least five blood-sugar tests within a few years of starting the study and more after it was underway. Researchers averaged these levels over time to even out spikes and dips from testing at various times of day or before or after a meal. Participants were given standard tests for thinking skills every two years and asked about smoking, exercise and other things that affect dementia risk. After nearly seven years of follow-up, 524, or one quarter of them, had developed dementia – mostly Alzheimer’s disease. Among participants who started out without diabetes, those with higher glucose levels over the previous five years had an 18 percent greater risk of developing dementia than those with lower glucose levels.

Diabetes lifetime costs – as expensive as a house?

To calculate the costs of living with type 2 diabetes on an individual basis, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Research Triangle International created a simulation model that could compile the costs of both treating the condition and managing its complications. This is as opposed to only focusing on the overall economic burden of treating type 2 diabetes in a year. The findings reveal that on average, a person with type 2 diabetes spends more than $85,000 over the course of their lifetime on treating the disease and managing complications. Additionally, the point at which a person is diagnosed with the disease can affect how much they spend during their lifetime. For example, a man diagnosed with type 2 diabetes when he is between 25 and 44 will spend $124,700. But women from the same age range will pay over $5,000 more, at $130,800 during their lifetime.
