Let’s talk about sugar.  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  It seems like foods with a high sugar content are the cheapest and easiest on the go snacks.  Unfortunately, too much sugar can lead to heart disease, type two diabetes, obesity, and a ton of other health problems.  The best way to decrease sugar intake when you are on the go is to pack ahead.  Instead of reaching for a bowl of cereal in the morning, try hard boiling a couple of eggs the night before.  You will find that the protein in the eggs will give you more long-lasting energy than the sugar in the cereal.  Also, instead of grabbing a candy bar for an afternoon snack, pack a couple of bags of vegetables and fruit.  Although fruit contains sugar, natural sugar is healthier than processed.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

Ladies, are you on the pill?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  The birth control pill is often an easy and safe way to prevent pregnancy.  The pill is ninety-one to ninety-nine percent effective.  But, did you know that the pill can affect the way your body metabolizes alcohol?  That’s right, it can actually cause alcohol to metabolize more slowly which causes the effects to last longer.  This is because the liver has to metabolize the hormones and the alcohol at the same time.  Although alcohol does not affect the effectiveness of birth control, it can intensify the effects of alcohol which can lead to risky sexual behavior.  It is important to drink responsibly and to talk to your doctor if you begin to show symptoms of alcohol dependence.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

Have you ever noticed the “little moon” on the bottom of your finger nails?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  That “little moon” is called the lunula and is the rounded shadow on the base of the finger nail.  You may think nothing of it, but the lunula can actually tell you and your doctor a lot about your health.  If the lunula is absent, it may be a sign of malnourishment, anemia, or depression.  A blue lunula may be sign of Wilson’s Disease, a genetic disease that causes a large amount of copper to develop in the body’s vital organs.  If your lunula has a reddish halo, it could be a sign of COPD, heart failure, psoriasis, chronic hives, collagen vascular disease, or carbon monoxide poisoning.  Talk to your doctor if you notice changes in your lunula.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

Ok, so it’s no secret that I hate tattoos, but there may be a new class of tattoos on the market soon. Biomedical tattoos. The Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering at ETH Zurich in Basel may have developed a unique way to monitor for early stage prostate, lung, colon and breast cancers. They have developed a synthetic gene network that can go under the skin, only appearing as a small mole if blood calcium levels are consistently high, a hallmark for some early stage cancers. If the mole appears, it isn’t a death sentence, quite the contrary, it gives the patient time to find and remove the cancer before it gets serious. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/04/180418141454.htm

Are you addicted to processed foods?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  Processed junk foods have little to no nutritional value.  So, why are they so addictive?  A new study published in Cell Metabolism may be able to explain why.  The study consisted of two hundred and six participants.  The group was shown pictures of different snacks while having a functional MRI.  The study found that the combination of carbohydrates and fat triggered the reward system in the brain.  Researchers believe that our brains have adapted to having so many options for food, that we have begun to prefer those that we find more pleasurable instead of nutritious.  So, the next time you reach for that snack, ask yourself whether or not your brain is playing tricks on you.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

Have you noticed that your fingers are looking a little bonier lately?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  If you have osteoarthritis and have noticed an increase in the size of your finger joints, you may be suffering from Heberden’s nodes.  Osteoarthritis causes the degradation of cartilage in the finger joints.  The bones then rub together and become extremely painful.  In response, the body creates more bone.  This is called a Heberden’s node.  Symptoms include: inflammation, redness, pain, decrease or loss of motion, and stiffness in the fingers.  The best way to decrease symptoms are to do exercises that do not use joints.  Pressure is taken off of the joints as muscle builds.  Talk to your doctor today if you are experiencing symptoms of osteoarthritis.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

Ouch, my back! This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  Do you suffer from lower back spasms?  Back spasms often occur after lifting something heavy or quickly changing position.  The symptoms may include: weakness, trouble bending over, radiation down the legs, cramping, and tension in the lower back.  Applying heat or ice to the area may help with the pain.  You can also try taking NSAIDs like ibuprofen to decrease inflammation.  Even a massage can help with the spasms.  The best way to avoid back spasms are by making a few lifestyle changes.  These include: sitting with good posture, lifting with your legs NOT your back, and by making sure that your mattress is medium-soft.  Talk to your doctor if your symptoms don’t ease up.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

It’s time for another mental health check.  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  It is estimated that eight to ten percent of the US population takes antidepressants.  Although these medications change lives, they can be harmful when a person stops them “cold turkey”.  Antidepressants are not addictive medications, but they do change the chemistry in the brain and when they are suddenly withheld from the body, a reaction occurs.  It is estimated that around 80 percent of people taking antidepressants will experience withdrawal symptoms if stopped suddenly. These symptoms can include: stomach cramps, nausea, suicidal thoughts, mood swings, mania, difficulty thinking, low blood pressure, and difficulty sleeping.  Talk to your doctor before stopping your antidepressants.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
