  1. Milk allergy Overview Milk allergy is an abnormal response by the body's immune system to milk and products containing milk. It's one of the most common food allergies in children. Cow's milk is the usual cause of milk allergy, but milk from sheep, goats, buffalo and other mammals also can cause a reaction. An allergic reaction usually occurs soon after you or your child consumes milk. Signs and symptoms of milk allergy range from mild to severe and can include wheezing, vomiting, hives and digestive problems. Milk allergy can also cause anaphylaxis — a severe, life-threatening
  2. Know Your Risk for Heart Disease Several health conditions, your lifestyle, and your age and family history can increase your risk for heart disease. These are called risk factors. About half of all Americans (47%) have at least 1 of 3 key risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking. Some risk factors for heart disease cannot be controlled, such as your age or family history. But you can take steps to lower your risk by changing the factors you can control. What health conditions increase the risk of heart disease? High blood pressure.
  3. Depression and Heart Disease How Depression and Heart Disease Relate to Each Other Depression and heart disease are among the most disabling diseases we face. They are both very widespread among the general population and often occur simultaneously in the same individual. There is thought to be a two-way relationship between heart disease and depression: A percentage of people with no history of depression become depressed after a heart attack or after developing heart failure. And people with depression but no previously detected heart disease, seem to develop heart diseas
  4. Things No One Tells You About Ageing Lots of Know-How They’re called the golden years for a reason. Getting older has its perks. For one, you’re good at using what you’ve learned. This is called crystalized intelligence, and it keeps getting better, even when you’re 65 or 70. Mr. Nice Guy Turns out you might not be a grumpy old man (or woman), after all. You’ll probably get more agreeable as you age, at least through your 60s. You’re also likely to be happier and less inclined to get angry. Scientists haven’t figured out exactly why this happens, but they do have some theor

  7. Coming Soon: Once-a-Week Insulin Injections? Daily insulin jabs can be the bane of existence for people who live with type 2 diabetes, but an investigational once-weekly insulin shot may be a game changer for these folks. While the research is still in its early stages, the new drug called basal insulin Fc (BIF) is given once a week and appears to be just as effective at controlling blood sugar (glucose) as insulin degludec, the gold standard once-a-day shot. The once-a-week shot is as safe as insulin degludec and may be better at reducing risk for dangerous low blood sugar (hyp
  8. Could a Drug Prevent Type 1 Diabetes in Those at Risk Just two weeks of treatment with an experimental drug can delay the onset of type 1 diabetes by several years, researchers report. The drug, called teplizumab, is already under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration based on earlier evidence of its effectiveness. If it gets the green light, it would become the first drug approved for delaying type 1 diabetes in high-risk people. In the earlier study, researchers found that two weeks of teplizumab infusions typically held the disease at bay for two years, versus
  9. Too Much Added Sugar May Affect Your Immune System, Study Suggests Key Takeaways Many studies have linked fructose, a form of sugar found naturally in fruit and also in a wide range of processed foods and sugary drinks, with adverse health outcomes. New research suggests that a diet high in fructose might interfere with healthy immune system function. Experts say it's important to eat fruits as part of a healthy diet, but limit foods containing all added sugars—not just fructose. Fructose has gotten a pretty bad rap in recent years, as research has shown repeatedly t
  10. What Is Diabetic Retinopathy? Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that causes changes to the blood vessels in the part of your eye called the retina. That's the lining at the back of your eye that changes light into images. The blood vessels can swell, leak fluid, or bleed, which often leads to vision changes or blindness. It usually affects both eyes. When left untreated, diabetic retinopathy can scar and damage your retina. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss for people with diabetes. It’s the leading cause of blindness for all adults in the U.S.
  11. Peanut Butter as a Sports Superfood Peanut butter is amazing, tastes delicious, and provides nutrient-dense calories to fuel the body. Whether working out regularly, running for distance, or involved in a competitive sport, you require the best nutrition to feed your body and mind. Peanut butter gets a lot of flak for being an unhealthy fattening food. But this is far from the truth. Peanut butter contains healthy fats, and is packed with protein for energy that lasts. According to the National Peanut Board, world-class athletes "rely on peanut butter to provide long-lasting energy f
  12. Guys, Exercise Helps Ageing Hearts, Testosterone Won't Testosterone levels tend to fall in older men, but a new study shows that exercise -- and not supplemental testosterone -- is the way to rejuvenate the ageing male heart. Australian researchers found that without exercise, testosterone replacement therapy offered patients no improvement at all in cardiovascular health. But exercise alone -- absent any testosterone supplementation -- did boost arterial function. As a bonus, exercise also boosted the men's natural testosterone levels, the study found. According to study a
  13. Your Prostate Over 40 During the first half of your life, you may hardly know your prostate is there. The walnut-sized sexual organ, located just below the bladder, makes fluid that helps protect sperm after ejaculation as it seeks out eggs to fertilize. A healthy prostate goes about its business without drawing a lot of attention to itself. As you age, though, things often change. Prostate Growth: A Normal Part of Ageing Starting around age 25, the adult prostate begins to enlarge slowly. The condition is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and it has nothing to do
  14. Prediabetes May Harm Your Brain "Prediabetes" -- where blood sugar levels are high but not yet tipped over into full-blown diabetes -- may pose a threat to brain health, new British research suggests. "As an observational study, it cannot prove higher blood sugar levels cause worsening brain health. However, we believe there is a potential connection that needs to be investigated further," said study lead author Victoria Garfield. She's at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science and MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Aging, at University College London. In their research, Garfiel
