People with heavy thighs are relatively safe from diabetes than those with a big tummy

According to International Diabetes Federation, there were over 72 million cases of diabetes in India in 2017. The number of Indians suffering from this malicious disease is expected to cross the 100 million mark by 2030. A large part of this epidemic spreading so rampantly can be attributed to the rising obesity. Sir Ganga Ram Hospital along with Motilal Nehru Medical College of Allahabad, has recently discovered a “simple and cost-effective screening tool” to identify people at hi...

Surgery may affect patients memory: study

Patients may score slightly lower on certain memory tests after undergoing surgery, a study suggests. The study published in the journal Anaesthesia involved 312 participants who had surgery and 652 participants who had not (with an average age in the 50s). Surgery between tests was associated with a decline in immediate memory by one point out of a possible maximum test score of 30 points, researchers said. Memory became abnormal in 77 out of 670 participants with initially normal memory com...

Genetics may play big role in kid's snacking patterns

Parents, take note! The types of snacks a child chooses could be linked to genetics, a new study has claimed.   The researcher investigated whether genetic variants in taste receptors related to sweet preference, fat taste sensitivity and aversion to bitter green leafy vegetables influenced the snacks chosen by the study participants. They found that nearly 80 per cent of the study participants carried at least one of these potential at-risk genotypes that could predispose them to poor s...

Heart attack symptoms in women

Young women who report heart attack symptoms such as indigestion, shortness of breath, palpitations or pain in the jaw, neck, or arms, were more likely than men to have them dismissed by their doctors as not heart related, raising their risk of death than similarly aged men, finds a new study.   Previous studies have reported that women were less likely to present with chest pain for acute myocardial infarction -- commonly known as a heart attack -- but more likely to report a wider varie...

నా వయసు నలభై అయిదేళ్ళు.

బరువు తగ్గడానికి ఏ పద్ధతి పాటించినా, బరువు ఓవరాల్‌గా తగ్గుతుంది. కానీ భారతీయులకు పొట్ట భాగంలో ఎక్కువ కొవ్వు పేరుకుపోతుంది. దీనినే ‘సెంట్రల్‌ ఒబేసిటీ’ అంటారు. పొట్ట భాగం మామూలుగానే అధికంగా ఉండటం వల్ల, మొత్తం బాడీ తగ్గినా... ఇంకా పొట్ట భాగం తగ్గనట్టే ఉంటుంది. పొట్ట ఆకారం మనం చేసే పనిని బట్టి మారుతూ ఉంటుంది. ఎక్కువసేపు కూర్చొని ఉండేవారికి పొట్ట భాగం అధికంగా ఉంటుంది. అలాగే ప్రతి రోజూ మద్యం, చిరుతిళ్ళు తీసుకొని, ఆ తరĸ...

Maternal deficiency of Vitamin D may up childhood obesity risk

Babies born to women who suffered from Vitamin D deficiency during their pregnancy are more likely to develop obesity in childhood as well as in adulthood, a study has found.   Children born to mothers with very low Vitamin D levels during their first trimester are likely to have bigger waists or be about half an inch plumper on average by age six. These kids also had two per cent more body fat, than peers whose mothers had enough Vitamin D in early pregnancy. "These increases may ...

Three Habits that will keep you Fit and Healthy

1. Move every day  Simply carve out some time for movement every day. This might be 60 minutes or just 20 and you might do something very intense or light, but make a habit out of moving daily. Most of us workout or play or do something intense 2 to 4 times a week and that’s about it for movement. This means that we do absolutely nothing active on 3 to 5 days of the week, barring the occasional walk to the kitchen or restroom. This is concerning because the human body is designed to...

Does weight lifting stunt height and stop growth

There is no correlation between weight-training and stunting. If weight-training were to cause it, then children carrying their school bags should have been impacted because of this! Growth is dependent on growth hormones and the parents’ genes (the blueprint, in a sense). Expect girls to reach maximum height by 16-17 years and boys by 19-20 years. An optimal amount of weight-training and other exercise, in fact, assists children to grow to their optimal height. Remember, weight-training i...
