Have You Ever Heard Of HELLP Syndrome?

By Miranda, published on Oct 26, 2011

As you all know I am a Mom, a stay at home, busy Mom. Some of you know that I have 4 children, very few of you know my daughter Marissa was a preemie. She was born at 28 weeks gestation weighing in at a mere 2 pounds 5 ounces and 15 inches long. Our story and experience is a pretty intense story. I would love to share the story with you. I was eighteen when I found out I was expecting a baby. The Dr. said I was due the end of September. I was pretty nervous but I knew it would all work out.

Eat and Run

By applecrumbles, published on Oct 10, 2011

Many people embark on a fitness program with a goal in mind. The goal might be weight loss (the most popular), to increase endurance, train for competition, or simply better overall health. How many times have you heard friends or family say something along the lines of "I'm on a diet and I did really well today. I had a "skinny" shake for breakfast, another for lunch, and cheese, crackers, with soup for dinner." The next day, the same person trys to walk or run 2 or 3 miles and proclaims "BOY! I'm so tired!"

Let's Blame It All On The Poor

By Paul Wylie, published on Mar 14, 2011

... in turn wishes the person to see a specialist. Another $35.00. And prescribing 5 medications to alleviate the symptoms will cost between 10 and 20 more dollars. Say this person must see their doctor, the specialist, and obtain these prescriptions for a period of one year in order to get back to health. How in the world does anyone expect the recipient to pay almost $100.00 per month for their Medicaid imposed costs, when their total monthly income, if on S.S.I. would be $663.00? Or the family on TANF, who in a generous state such as New Hampshire might receive the same amount for a family of ... (more)

By baynurse, published on Sep 16, 2010

...about how she brought those gloves from home to do her duty. I kindly suggested that she use a napkin, instead, for cookie handling and she graciously accepted my advice.

People sneeze into their hands, then they proceed to hand money over to the person who probably was there to say bless you.

So, this winter season coming soon. I advise and recommend, frequent hand washing, especially from post bathroom trips, money handling, and please kindly sneeze into your elbows not your hands. It is a matter of public health.

With love and hope for a safer world, baynurse!

Hyperparathyroidism Secondaryto ESRD Explained

By l0oree, published on Sep 13, 2010

Calcium and phosphorus work together as a team in the body. When there is more of one, there is more of the other. They both have very important roles in the body in the blood and in the bones.

After narrowly clearing a Senate scheduling hurdle, the bill passed through unanimous consent, meaning that there was complete agreement by all 100 senators and therefore no need for a vote.

This is a phenomenal, wonderful piece of news. It is a sure sign that Washington is waking up to the fact that... (more)

By John Vespasian, published on Jul 28, 2010

Medicine and other sciences have advanced immensely since Antiquity. Unfortunately, many of their fundamental principles have barely spread beyond the circle of professionals and specialists. Even in the 21st century, important segments of the population still know less about their own health than about sports or entertainment celebrities.Hippocrates (460-370 BC), the most famous physician of Ancient Greece, already identified basic rules for protecting our health. However, although many generations have passed, his major discovery, the idea that sickness rarely happens by chance, is still... (more)
