HealthDay News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Old asthma drug may be able to combat obesity and diabetes
Medical Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A recent report indicates that amlexanox, a drug that is currently off patent, may reduce the effects of obesity such as fatty liver and Type 2 diabetes. Because the drug is already on the market it won't have to go through as rigorous testing for safety as many new drugs on the market do. Additionally, because the medication's patent has been expired for a while now, generics could be quite cheap and easy to obtain. More

Can't get enough sleep? Your diet may be to blame. A new study found that what people eat plays an important role in how much they sleep. The latest study, published in the journal Appetite, is the first to show how certain nutrients can affect short- and long-sleep duration, and that people who eat a large variety of foods had the healthiest sleep patterns.

Study: Vitamin D doses often don't match labels
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What's in your vitamin supplement? It could be more or less than you think, according to the latest study to show that what's on a supplement label is not necessarily what's in the bottle. Researchers who tested vitamin D pills sold in stores found they contained from 9 to 140 percent of the doses listed on labels, according to a research letter published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Chicago Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
About half of U.S. adults use dietary supplements, and less than a quarter of the people who take them do so at the advice of a healthcare professional, according to a survey of almost 12,000 people in 2007 to 2010 published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Americans spent more than $30 billion on supplements in 2011. Asked why, 45 percent of the people said they used supplements to improve overall health and 33 percent to maintain health. More

Members of the baby boomer generation are in worse health than their parents were at the same age, according to a new study. In a large national survey, about 13 percent of baby boomers — the generation born in the two decades after World War II — reported being in "excellent" health in middle age, compared to 32 percent of the previous generation who said the same at the same stage of life.

What's in a blood type? Could be your risk of developing clots
TIME    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A study confirms the connection between the AB blood type and an increased risk of blood clots. Blood clots that form in the veins of the lower legs can pose serious health problems since they can break off and then get lodged in tiny arteries in the lungs, where they block blood flow and cause intense pain, difficulty breathing and even sudden death if blood can no longer pick up much-needed oxygen from the lungs.
