Bodybuilding supplement promotes healthy aging and extends life span, at least in mice

Mice given the substance—alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG)—were healthier as they aged, and females lived longer than mice not on the supplement. Other compounds, like the antiaging drug rapamycin and the diabetes treatment metformin, have shown similar effects in mouse experiments. But AKG is naturally made by mice and by our own bodies, and it is already considered safe to consume by regulators. “The big thing about this is that its safety profile is so good,” says University of North Dakota aging researcher Holly Brown-Borg, who was not involved with the study. “It has potential and should be explored further, for sure.” AKG is part of the metabolic cycle that our cells use to make energy from food. In the new study, Gordon Lithgow and Brian Kennedy of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and colleagues turned to mammals.

More information here: The RH factor is also determined through a standard blood test and indicates the presence (RH+) or absence (RH-) of an antigen that is also present in Rhesus monkeys. Corticosteroid injections used to treat osteoarthritis pain in the hip and knee may be more dangerous than previously thought, according to a special report published in the journal Radiology.

Researchers suggested that injection-associated risks like rapid progressive osteoarthritis, which eventually may lead to joint collapse, should be integrated into consent forms so that patients are aware of the potential risks associated with these treatments. Osteoarthritis of the hip and knee are common and debilitating joint disorders. Physicians often inject anti-inflammatory corticosteroids into the joint to treat the pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis.

The procedure is widely viewed as safe, and patient consent forms mainly mention the risks of hemorrhage and infection among more rare side effects associated with most needle-based procedures. Morton's Neuroma Management and Treatment. How is Morton's neuroma treated?

The affected tissue, called the palmar fascia, becomes tight and shortened, contracting the fingers inwards toward the palm. The development of the condition usually occurs quite slowly over many months, or even years, though in rare cases it can develop suddenly. It can affect any of the fingers, but it most commonly affects the ring finger (fourth digit) and little finger (fifth digit). It can occur in only one hand or in both hands at the same time. Causes Palmar fibromatosis is a relatively common condition but its cause is not fully understood. Palmar fibromatosis runs in families, and is more common in people of Northern European decent, so it is thought that genetics can play a part in the development of the condition. Signs and symptoms.
