7 Ways To Show Real Support To Friends And Family Battling Health Issues

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 04:01:02 +0100

“Please let me know if you need anything … ” We’ve all said the same thing to friends or loved ones when they were ill and in need of support. Blogger Judy Schwartz Haley, who was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer when her daughter was an infant, heard it a lot.  “I received many well wishes and blanket invitations to ‘call me if you need anything,’” she recalled. “But that’s a hard offer to follow up on. It meant I still had to pick up the phone to call someone and ask for help. I’m still not very good at that.” When someone you love is battling illness or injury, it’s normal to feel like you’re not doing enough to help him or her. We partnered with Dignity Health to give you seven tangible ways ...

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 00:18:35 +0100

Discussion Hypermobility can be seen in several different clinical entities. These include generalized joint hypermobility, joint hypermobility syndrome, Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Osteogenesis Imperfecta.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS): Signs, Symptoms, Prevention and Coping

Sat, 30 Aug 2014 19:07:56 +0100

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a group of inherited disorders that affect a person’s connective tissues, mainly their joints, skin and the walls of their blood vessels. Connective tissue is a complex mixture of proteins and other substances that provides elasticity and strength to the underlying structures of a person’s body. People who experience Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) usually have overly flexible joints and skin that is fragile and stretchy. The skin issue may become a real problem if a person with EDS has a wound that requires stitches for example because their skin is often times not strong enough to hold the stitches.

Generation jitters: are we addicted to caffeine?

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 14:22:56 +0100

Caffeine is the drug many of us can't live without – but do you have any idea how much is in your daily hit?Propped up on my desk before me, there is a vacuum-sealed bag of white powder. Chemists would recognise this substance as a methylated xanthine, composed of tiny crystalline structures. It is a drug, and I have been under its influence nearly every day for the past 25 years. It is caffeine, and in moderation it makes us feel good. But it is a drug whose strength is consistently underestimated. You'd need to down about 50 cups of coffee at once, or 200 cups of tea, to approach a lethal level of caffeination – but if you go straight for the powder, you can get a lot very quickly.On 9 April 2010, 23-year-old Michael Bedford was at a party near his home in Mansfield.

What Causes Constipation?

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 00:32:39 +0100

Discussion Constipation generally is defined as infrequent or painful defecation. Constipation can be very disturbing to the patient and family who believe the stools are too infrequent, too hard or too difficult to pass. Most children develop constipation after the child begins to associate pain (e.g. a hard bowel movement) with defecation. The child then begins to withhold the stools trying to decrease the defecation discomfort. As stool withholding continues, the rectum dilates and gradually accommodates with the normal defecation urge disappearing. Passing large hard stools infrequently reinforces the defecation pain. The cycle continues. If the cycling is severe enough, worsening stool retention and more abnormal defecation dynamics occurs. Chronic rectal distension results in both lo...
