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.

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)

Did you know that your oral health can offer clues about your overall health or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body?  When your mouth is healthy, chances are your overall health is also good.  Like many areas of the body, your mouth is teeming with bacteria - most of them harmless.  Normally the body's natural defenses and good oral health care, such as daily brushing and flossing, can keep these bacteria under control.  However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease.   In addition, certain medications such as decongestants, antihistamines, painkillers and diuretics can reduce saliva flow. Saliva washes away food and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth, helping to protect you from microbial invasion or overgrowth that might lead to disease.  Studies also suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease, might play a role in some diseases.  (Mayo Clinic)

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)
