Uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors in the uterus, have raised concerns of fertility and cancer in women. I'm Shelby Cullinan for the dailyRx News Network. Two recent studies found that many women had fears that uterine fibroids would lead to future health problems, including cancer. Women also had fears that they would eventually need a hysterectomy. The researchers, led by Dr. Elizabeth A Stewart from the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Mayo Clinic and Mayo Medical School in Minnesota, also found that African American women reported more severe symptoms of uterine.
Fibroids, including heavy or longer than normal menstrual periods, than other women. African American women with fibroids had significantly more symptoms and we had some indication that this might be true before. But what we found is that the disparities in fibroids for African American women were confounded at every step. They had more symptoms before seeking treatment Consult with your physician to learn more about the treatments for uterine fibroids. To keep up to date with all the latest health news visit dailyRx.

Could I Get Pregnant Right After a Miscarriage
Could I get pregnant right after a miscarriage Theoretically, you could get pregnant two or three weeks after the miscarriage if your cycle starts right after the miscarriage. I'm worried I'll lose this one, too. If you are miscarrying because of a thyroid problem, other hormone problems, fibroids interfering with the pregnancy and other causes, yes, you might. Will a prior miscarriage increase the odds I'll lose this one, too Prior abortions increase the odds that the next kid will be preterm, even if you want to keep it. But prior miscarriages do not necessarily mean this one is at risk unless.
You have an inverted uterus or another condition that makes it hard to go to term. That sounds like a condition someone made up. That means the uterus is in the inverse position from what is normal, and that increases the odds of miscarriage and preterm birth. What's the difference between the two One means the kid is a preemie and has a chance in the hospital, when the other is too soon for science to save. Let's assume that there is not some obvious medical cause. What are the odds I could get.
Pregnant right after the miscarriage If you just had a baby, it would usually be two to four months before your period starts back up. Miscarriage usually does not trigger prolactin and nursing, so that means you might get pregnant one or two months later at the earliest. I still worry about losing this one, too. According to the Mayo Clinic, the odds of second miscarriage after prior one is five percent. About one in a hundred has three or more. That's a lottery I really do not want to win.
The Mayo Clinic says if you miscarried once, the odds that the next pregnancy is fine are sixty to seventy percent. What happens to the rest Some people have preterm kids, some just do not get pregnant again because the condition that caused the miscarriage now prevents conception, and some hit menopause. I think I've conceived before this, before the miscarriage. Now if you've had two or more miscarriages, you should talk to the doctor about blood tests for hormone levels and other conditions. What is the fastest I could potentially conceive after a miscarriage.
Dr. Paul MacKoul MD Makes Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal Possible Helenes Story
I have been suffering from fibroids and endometriosis for over 20 years, and I had very intense pain, back problems, lower stomach problems, headaches from being so anemic. And it controlled my life. I think my first procedure was probably '95. And so since '95, I've been going through different procedures with different doctors, and nothing worked. I would do the surgery, and I would be fine for a month or two. And then I would say the longest I've ever been OK was for three months, and then bam here it comes again.
One of the doctors that I went into, he told me that the best advice that he could give me was to just go ahead and have a hysterectomy. And then he started laughing and said that that was his best advice for the day. And then I told him, thanks, but no thanks. And I walked out. I had a cyst rupture on my right ovary. And I ended up in the emergency room where I had to do surgeries to remove my appendix, because it kind of fused my appendix and my fallopian tube together.
After I got out of that surgery, my GYN at the time, she told me, I want you to go and see Dr. MacKoul. She said, this is the only doctor the only doctor that I want you to see. I went in to see Dr. MacKoul. He was pleasant, and he took the time out to explain to me what was going on and do all his little drawings. Dr. MacKoul recommended a LAAM myomectomy, because I wanted to retain my uterus. He told me if I had any questions just to call him,.
And he would explain anything that I didn't quite understand. Then he actually came and sat with me before I actually was taken in for the surgery. And he went over again what we're going to be doing, and then he told my family to just trust him. I was in good hands. I did not come across a specialist until I actually met Dr. MacKoul. Not only did he tell me what my problem was, not only did he tell me what mistakes had been done with my surgeries prior.
That caused my endometriosis to get worse but he fixed the problem. I haven't had any pain no back problems, no stomach problems, no headaches. I finally decided it was time for me to do what I wanted to do. Three months later, my dad had asked me, would I go with him to Africa. And I told him, sure, and so we went to Africa for a month. This was something that I would not have done prior to having the surgery. The energy that I didn't feel I had before to be able to do.
My master's, now I'm working on my master's. I have the energy where I'm doing my master's, working, and also helping my niece with her homework, and now having to travel with her to go to her different events. I wish I had met Dr. MacKoul before. I wish I had heard about him before I went through all those other procedures. But looking back, with everything that I went through, I'm always telling other people about Dr. MacKoul. He is a true specialist. He is the only specialist I would recommend.
Young Patients May Have Worse Fibromyalgia Symptoms
When it comes to patients with fibromyalgia, being young may not be better than being older. I m Kendra Rowland for the dailyRx News Network. Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and tenderness. A recent study found that young and middleaged people with fibromyalgia reported worse symptoms and quality of life than older patients. Dr. Terry Oh, a physical and rehabilitation physician at Mayo Clinic led the study, and its findings were presented at the American College of Rheumatology's annual meeting. Symptom severity and quality of life differs across the 3 age groups. And we observed worse symptom severity and quality.
How Culture Might Affect Menopause
I'm Erin White with today's health news. Where a woman is from may have an effect on the way she experiences menopause. A new study looked at 8,200 older women and men in North America and Europe to see how menopause affected their sex lives and relationships. The results showed similar complaints in different countries, but the extent of suffering for common symptoms like vaginal dryness, hot flashes and weight gain varied by nationality. According to this study, women in societies that revere the elderly tended to have less bothersome menopausal.
How Tampons Could Help Detect Cancer
I'm Rachelle Grossman with today's health news. Early detection of endometrial cancer could soon be as easy as using a tampon. Researchers looking into ways to make cancer screening more convenient and accessible found that DNA collected from tampons was just as telling of the presence of endometrial cancer as DNA collected using a more formal procedure like scraping cells from the inner lining of the uterus. The study, published in the journal Gynecologic Oncology, showed that regardless of how the samples were obtained, something called methylation which masks tumor suppressor genes and allows cells to turn cancerous was.
Morton Plant Hospital How the Valve Clinic Works with Referring Physicians
Dr. Spriggs I'm Douglas Spriggs. I'm an Interventional Cardiologist at Morton Plant Hospital and a member of the Valve Clinic Team. Dr. Ofenloch I'm Dr. John Ofenloch, Cardiovascular Surgeon and member of the Valve Clinic Team at Morton Plant Hospital. The Valve Clinic is a multidisciplinary group of physicians that focus on a specific problem, and in this case, we focus on aortic stenosis. The program begins with the patient being referred to the Valve Clinic and taking an assessment of what testing has already been completed and what testing needs to be performed.
Our Valve Clinic Coordinator spends a great deal of time with their office arranging for the upcoming tests, and the tests can often be performed locally without the patient having to travel to the Valve Clinic. Once all of the assessments have been completed, the patient is then brought physically to the Valve Clinic for an appointment where we can review all of the available testing. Subsequently, the plan of the Valve Clinic Team is provided back to the referring physician by usually a personal phone call and often by electronic communication so that the referring.
Physician knows exactly what the upcoming plan is. The idea is that we offer them under the share care philosophy, where the patient is brought to Morton Plant for a very specialized program and procedure and then returned to the care of their primary physician and cardiologist for ongoing followup. Dr. Spriggs The Valve Clinic Team is interested in designing a treatment plan for that patient, but also followup care after the procedure is performed is important and that's where the communication with the referring physician is critical. Our goal is to communicate those needs to the referring physician so that they can participate.
Is It Bad To Chew Ice
This episode of DNews is brought to you bythe BuyPower Card from Capital One.Every purchase brings you closer to a new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle. I love chewing ice. What does that say about me! AM I GOING TO BE OKAY! Hey guys, it's Trace for DNews. Ice chewing is a thing with records of it dating to the 1600s! People do it for different reasons, like if your refill never came, or you just like the crunch But one thing's for sure, it has NOTHING to do with being sexually frustrated.
Abnormal ice cravings are part of something doctors call pica, or the craving to chew something with no nutritional value. If it's specifically ice, that's called pagophagia, and the MAIN thing ice chewing can indicate is iron deficiency or anemia! Seriously, it's a symptom! Of course, this is if you're chewing a massive amount of ice, not just a cube or two. They're not sure why people who are iron deficient crave ice, since there's no iron IN ice cubes, perhaps it's because they're crunchy Ice chewing can also be symptoms of emotional problems like stress, or something more serious.
Like obsessivecompulsive or developmental disorders. Again, you'd have to chew more than what's in the bottom of your water glass to be diagnosed with this, but anyway Though we don't know WHY people chew ice. We know they do, and have for hundreds of years. Dentists don't recommend chewing ice, because YES, ice chewing CAN damage your teeth. You might not see the damage, but it's there, and it's cumulative over time. Though they seem hard, tooth enamel is really brittle, and is about as easy to break as glass. The.
Reason they DON'T break is because your teeth are made of microstructures of enamel and dentin. The microstructures keep microscopic cracks from spreading, but that doesn't mean they aren't any cracks. A study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found human teeth can withstand 1000 Newtons of force, while other primates with crunchier diets have thicker enamel and thus stronger teeth. Those primates can crunch nuts and fruit pits, or grind thick plants, where we would literally crack a tooth. Add to that, the temperature shifts from chewing ice. Your mouth stays around the high 90s.
Normally, but introducing ice can drop that temperature just as you crunch on the ice. Colder teeth are even more prone to cracks! Knowing people's affinity for chewing the cold chunks, a company called Scotsman Ice Systems created an ice machine that creates an easytochew ice nugget, it's more like compressed snow. You can find it at Sonic, if you're near one. Bottom line, chewing ice doesn't hurt you, but it can damage your teeth if you do it too much. It can cause fractures, chipping, and cracking, not to mention increased temperature.
Sensitivity and decay. Plus, dental fillings, crowns, veneers and such don't have the resiliency afforded to natural teeth, so THOSE will wear even faster. Enamel doesn't grow back, so next time you're chewing on ice, think of your old person self, because they're probably gonna be pissed. Are you like me Do you chew ice Why Did you ever think about it If you don't, why not Comments, leave one, that's why they're there. I love you guys, thanks for watching DNews. Let me know if you have any pressing science.
Hillandale Physicians Provide Quality Care
My name is Dr. Dominique Smith. I'm the chief of the medical staff at DeKalb Medical Hillandale, and I'm proud to be a member of the elite team of experienced physicians that are currently working at Hillandale. When the hospital first opened, there were many physicians that were already within the community that had very distinguished practices and chose to remain on staff and to continue serving the community. Many physicians decided to join this Hillandale community, some were recruited and many of the doctors that were recruited were previously serving.
As faculty and were highly regarded in their specialty and they were brought to Hillandale to help to expand the depth and breadth of the medical staff. We have a diverse number of experienced cardiologists that have been recruited by some of the top medical centers to become faculty and on staff at their centers as well as Hillandale. We have experienced general surgeons that are at the cutting edge of their specialty in performing some of the latest techniques in surgery. We have urologists vascular and endovascular surgeons that are.
Doing some of the cutting edge techniques to help save patients' lives gynecologists that are performing laparoscopy for minimally invasive gynecologic procedures for most of the problems that affect women's lives experienced orthopedic surgeons that are doing a lot of the latest techniques for hip replacement, knee replacement radiologists podiatrists, just to name a few. When physicians work as a team the outcome is always better for the patient. Working as a team and being able to discuss the care of the patient collaboratively means that there is going to be less medical errors and a better outcome. Well, here at.
Hillandale we do many common procedures. We do breast biopsy, hernia and gallblader surgery, as well as more innovative techniques. For example, Dr. Smith, one of our very own, she does very advanced procedures including the scarless laparoscopic hysterectomy. I choose to practice at Hillandale because of the quality of the doctors, the quality of the hospital and the fact that I can give the best care possible for my patients right here at Hillandale. Our doctors take great pride in the care we provide to our patients in this community.
Doctors Get Serious About Diagnosing Chronic Fatigue
I'm Miranda Savioli with today's health news. Chronic fatigue syndrome it's a condition that affects millions of Americans each year, yet there are no clear guidelines to diagnose it. Now, a panel from the Institute of Medicine suggests doctors use this checklist Fatigue that lasts for more than six months, discomfort after physical activity, and unrefreshing sleep, as well as either cognitive impairment or orthostatic intolerance, meaning symptoms improve when lying down and patients find it hard to stay upright for long. They also suggest renaming the condition systemic exertion intolerance disease.
