[Health Day] Studies are now showing that cardiovascular disease deaths are approaching the number one cause of death, cancer, in women under 65. 

Studies are now showing that cardiovascular disease deaths are approaching the number one cause of death, cancer, in women under 65.  The highest death rate was in the 25-35 yr old age group and the change decreased with age.  This is really no surprise given the massive uptick in carbohydrate consumption in the U.S. over

Current recommendations are for vaccination of all adults, whether pregnant, trying to conceive or otherwise.

Current recommendations are for the vaccination of all adults, whether pregnant, trying to conceive or otherwise. We would recommend that the dosing not occur during a treatment cycle, especially the second dose that stimulates a robust immune response. The cycle start should be at least 2 weeks after the second injection. Millions of vaccines have

[NY Times] What Happened to All Those Frozen Eggs?

As this technology continues to evolve, I would just like to emphasize the even greater need for egg cryopreservation in our young endometriosis patients who anticipate a significant delay to child bearing.  The diminished ovarian reserve that comes with endometriosis significantly shortens the reproductive time frame and thus egg freezing should be considered earlier than

Pregnant Women Who Consume Coffee May Be More Likely To Have Children With Behavioral Issues Later In Life, Study Indicates

About 3 or 4 years ago American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) made the landmark statement after 100 years of the opposite precedent that 200mg of caffeine per day in pregnancy was "OK." As many may know, I have been very outspoken in my belief that caffeine, like amphetamine (both stimulants) are very damaging

Breast Cancer Diagnosis May Quadruple Risk Of Diabetes And Metabolic Syndrome In Postmenopausal Women, Study Indicates

This studies' results clearly support the idea that insulin resistance (insulin elevation) is highly correlated with cancer. In a study like this, one cannot say that insulin causes cancer but overall the evidence is pointing in that direction. A quadrupling of the risk is a real association. We are not talking a 20% increase but

Pre-Eclampsia May Increase Mother’s Risk For Future Cardiovascular Disease And Earlier Death, Research Indicates

If one reads this medical headline from ACOG to our nations physicians, one would assume/conclude that pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure in pregnancy) itself is responsible for the increase in cardiovascular disease.  This is a classic example so common in medical "reporting" in the media.  The following is the article title. Title:  Preeclampsia and Cardiovascular Disease in

Research Indicates The Rate Of High Blood Pressure During Pregnancy Increased Over Last 40 Years

Research Indicates The Rate Of High Blood Pressure During Pregnancy Increased Over Last 40 Years In the age-period-cohort analysis, the rate of chronic hypertension increased sharply with advancing age and period from 0.11% in 1970 to 1.52% in 2010 (rate ratio, 13.41; 95% CI, 13.22–13.61).  While the absolute numbers are not that large, this represents

Only 13 Percent Of Women Have 28-Day Menstrual Cycles, Study Suggests

The interpretation of this data points to variation in cycles from month to month stating that fertility may vary from "cycle to cycle."  My take on this would be to realize that our women today are subjected to enormous physiologic stress which is causing the changes in the cycle length.  27-29 days are normal and

Research Suggests Increase In Obesity-Related Cancers In Middle Age

An increase in cancer is obvious to those of us caring for patients.  From the time I was a child and in high school (1970's) until now there has been a dramatic increase in cancer.  This is true of statistics and just my general impression.  I don't remember knowing of any cancer in any of

Estradiol May Have Protective Effect Against Cognitive Impairment In Women With Visceral Adipose Tissue, Research Suggests

More evidence that estrogen is protective to brain function and hopefully inching the needle toward more acceptance of normalization of estrogen for women.  The headwinds and resistance still abound when it comes to estrogen use in women. Newer studies are showing that if estrogen is started early, when the decline starts that cognitive function may
