Medicine – almost all of us have used it for various reasons throughout our lives.  It helps remedy pain, inflammation and illness.  It can be used short term, as needed, for headaches or infections.  It can also be used long term to treat serious medical conditions such as diabetes or cancer.  Many of us have experienced relief and positive results from taking medication but sometimes medication can have a negative result when medication errors occur.

Leukemia and lymphoma both involve the blood or bone marrow.  Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow, the spongy center of bones where our blood cells are formed.  The disease develops when blood cells produced in the bone marrow grow out of control.   Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system.  The two main types are Hodgkin lymphoma, named after Thomas Hodgkin who published the first description of lymphoma in 1832, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).  (The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society)

Almost everyone I know has misplaced their keys or sunglasses and has told me the same story more than once.  This is normal behavior for people but if it happens more frequently and certain daily tasks become difficult to complete, it could be early warning signs for Alzheimer's disease.  Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, or loss of intellectual function, among people aged 65 and older and is not a normal part of aging.   Alzheimer's disease is an irreversible, progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain's nerve cells, or neurons, resulting in loss of memory, thinking and language skills, and behavioral changes.

Have you ever eaten donuts or candy and noticed that you feel energetic at first and then end up feeling lethargic?  When this happens to people, who are unaware that the high amount of sugar in the food they just ate is the reason for their sudden drop in energy, they reach for another sweet or high carbohydrate food.  This can start a “sugar cycle” and causes blood sugar (glucose) to bounce from high to low repeatedly and affects your well being and energy levels.  This often happens because too much insulin is produced in response to sugary foods, and this excess insulin causes blood sugar levels to drop below normal, resulting in low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and fatigue.  On the other hand, when your food choices help you maintain consistent normal blood sugar levels, you feel great and have the energy you need to enjoy active days.

When the topic of immunizations comes to mind, I think most of us flash back to the dreaded shots we received as children in the doctor’s office.  When I got my immunizations as a child, I could at least look forward to a lollipop.  More recently, a sticker has become the healthier reward that my daughter was offered for being brave and being vaccinated.  (At a young age, my daughter was actually anything but brave).  But immunizations are a requirement for children attending school and they just seem like a part of growing up in this country.

Sunny days and outdoor activities make summer a favorite time of the year for many people.  However, like most things in life moderation may be the key.  Over exposure to the sun and heat could lead to heat stroke - the most severe form of heat illness that is defined as a body temperature of over 105 °F.  Heat stroke results from prolonged exposure to high temperatures, usually in combination with dehydration, which leads to failure of the body's temperature control system.  Heat stroke is strongly related to the heat index, which is a measurement of how hot you feel when the effects of relative humidity and air temperature are combined.  A relative humidity of 60% or more hampers sweat evaporation, which hinders your body's ability to cool itself.  The risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more.  So it's important, especially during heat waves, to pay attention to the reported heat index, and also to remember that exposure to full sunshine can increase the reported heat index by 15 degrees.  (WebMD)

Whenever you cannot speak for yourself - because of unconsciousness, shock, delirium, hysteria, loss of speech, etc. - a medical identification tag speaks for you.  A medical identification tag is worn as a bracelet, necklace or on clothing.  It allows the wearer to be identified as an individual with a medical condition that may need immediate attention.  Tragic or even fatal mistakes can be made in emergency medical treatment unless the special problem of the person is known.  Emergency responders are trained to look for the emblem and are able to use valuable information about the individual’s ailment or allergy in the event that the individual is unable to communicate.  (www.wellnessproposals.com)

The World Hepatitis Alliance is working in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) to celebrate the 6th World Hepatitis Day to spread awareness about hepatitis.  According to the World Hepatitis Alliance, shockingly 500 million people worldwide are living with either chronic hepatitis B or C.  While this is far higher than the prevalence of HIV or any cancer, awareness is inexplicably low and the majority of those infected are unaware.  The World Hepatitis Alliance hopes that World Hepatitis Day will prompt people to think about the huge scale of viral hepatitis infection globally, about whether they may be at risk (and if so, to get tested) and also about how to avoid becoming infected.  The long-term objective of the campaign is to prevent new infections and to deliver real improvements in health outcomes for people living with hepatitis B and C.

Anyone can fall but the consequences are vastly different depending upon one's age.  All children fall when running, playing games, roller skating and the like but they are resilient.  Their injuries usually result in a skinned knee with the worst being a broken arm if the fall was from a large height such as climbing.  However, the risk of falling becomes greater as we age and the potential for serious injury increases.  Falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths and the most common cause of injuries and hospital admissions among adults aged 65 and older.  (MontgomeryCountyFire and Rescue Service)
