Taking action, prevention important in face of diabetes

I often speak on the “disease of the century,” diabetes — and for good reason, it is a serious disease. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death, and having diabetes nearly doubles our chance of having a heart attack. I was a gestational diabetic, I have close family members who are diabetic and pre-diabetic, and a friend who is legally blind from diabetes and recently had a stroke, a complication of diabetes. We are all touched by diabetes.

Dr. Nina: Hot weather brings risks to our health

The warm months are a great time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. But as temperatures rise, it is important to brush-up on understandings and tips to prevent heat-related illnesses. Experts agree that, generally, heat-related illnesses can strike anyone of any age. However, the elderly, those on certain medications, and children under 4 are at an even greater risk.

Dr. Nina: Men need a better health IQ

More boys than girls are born every year in the U.S. And, the facts are - from the young to the old - females are healthier than males. Men lead women in the 15 top causes of death except for Alzheimer's disease, which many experts attribute to the fact men die almost six years earlier than women, on average.

Dr. Nina: Keep focus on boosting men's health

Men's Health Week is June 13 to June 19, the week leading up to and including Father's Day. And while I have said it before, it bears repeating, this is not just a men's issue. We all need to be aware and support good health and the prevention of health problems for our men, young to old.

Let's commit to improving men's health

Championing men's good health - while helping to prevent men's health problems - is not just a man's issue. It impacts families and our community, wives, moms, daughters, sons, sisters, coworkers and friends. We all need to be valuable resources of good health. Men's Health Week is celebrated each year during the week leading up to and including Father's Day. And the purpose of Men's Health Week is to heighten the awareness for all of us of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

Dr. Nina: With action, most strokes preventable

Strokes threaten millions of lives. Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke. And, on average, one American dies from a stroke every 4 minutes, taking 130,000 lives a year and making it the fifth-leading cause of death in our country. And, too, among survivors, it can cause severe long-term disability.

Dr. Nina: You smell -- learn more about the sense

It is hard to imagine a world without the smell of flowers, the unforgettable scent of our children when they were babies, or the rich array of aromas and fragrances we experience. Without smell, our food wouldn’t create the savory taste we enjoy and we would miss out on a number of special memories and range of emotions.

Dr. Nina: What are calories, and how can I burn them?

Imagine looking at two bags of potato chips while reading the calories but also seeing a label informing you on each that you could burn off the calories in a serving by jogging for 10 minutes, while the label on the other bag says you would have to jog for 40 minutes. Would that help you decide which snack to buy? In one recent survey, more than half of the respondents said it would.

Kidney stones painful, on the increase: Dr. Nina

Anyone who has experienced a kidney stone, or known a loved one who has, can attest to the fact that the pain is excruciating. Over the past two decades, the number of cases has been on the rise. In fact, every year, kidney stones send over a million people to the emergency department due to severe pain.

Mindful life makes most of each sense

Life can be fragile. We only have this day, this moment. We cannot change the past. We do not know what tomorrow will bring, and the future is not promised. And most negative thoughts that we experience or harbor are in regards to the past and future. By fully engaging ourselves in the moment - not allowing time to rush past unobserved and unseized - we are being mindful. We are living life.

Dr. Nina: Postpartum depression real, treatable

Postpartum depression, or PPD, is a very real and very serious health problem, with estimates ranging from about 12 percent to 22 percent of all mothers being affected. In fact, the largest study to date shows that as many as 1 in every 7 women suffers postpartum depression. And an estimated 50 percent suffer in silence. They go untreated or unrecognized because they are not aware of what it is or that they have it; they feel that it is a reflection of them as a mother or woman; they do not understand the condition’s dynamics; or they know how to reach out to get help.
