Hair-Loss Drugs’ Big Growth in China

Thats why after raw-ginger scalp rubs and walnut snacks failed to counter his receding hairline, Shi says hes ready to give Western drugs a try. Treatments such as Mercks ( MRK ) Propecia and Johnson & Johnsons ( JNJ ) Rogaine are gaining ground in China, where a full head of hair is a sign of health and virility. Sales of Western hair-loss treatments, most of which contain Rogaines active ingredient, minoxidil, jumped 90percent to 100.7million yuan ($16.4million) in the five years through 2012, according to researcher Euromonitor International. Thats almost double the growth rate of Chinas broader 33.6billion yuan market for hair-care products. Hair-loss drug sales are still small because baldness is only now being seen as a problem requiring pharmaceutical help, and Western companies have only recently begun to seize on the concern.

Top ten causes of hair loss in twenties

Top ten causes of hair loss in twenties

hair pulling or stroking can be a habit for infants and toddlers, just like thumb sucking, sucking on a pacifier, or rubbing a blanket. It usually stops when kids are around two or three years old, just like thumb sucking, although some continue pulling until they are three to five years old. Although you can ignore this habit, since it does sometimes cause some hair loss, you could keep your child’s hair cut short or try to move her to one of those other habits if it bothers you. trichotillomania is thought to be related to obsessive-compulsive disorder and is defined as a child or teen who compulsively pulls out her hair, feels tension before pulling or when trying to resist pulling, and feels pleasure, gratification, or relief when pulling her hair out. These children have noticeable hair loss and often need treatment from a child psychiatrist and/or child psychologist who specializes in trichotillomania. alopecia areata is thought to be an autoimmune disorder (the child’s immune’s system attacks the hair follicles) that causes complete hair loss in round or oval patches on a child’s scalp or other body part.

New wellness center part of Rosebud diabetes plan

We have a fear that there’s a lot of undiagnosed diabetes,” Oltmans said. “Their views are very Third World, unfortunately, uninformed views of diabetes.” The Rosebud program is drawing attention from other groups that work with Native Americans, and the company views it as a long-term commitment, Oltmans said. “A lot of companies say, ‘Here’s your mobile unit and wellness center, good luck,'” he said. “We’re going to have to stay engaged.

Type 1 Diabetes Support Group

We don’t want to elaborate why we’re having to, but it’s better to talk to people who live it,” Magstadt said. Now Magstadt’s certified nurse practitioner is starting a Type 1 diabetes support group in Sioux Falls. “I’ve actually had several patients and others in the community inquire about a specific Type 1 diabetes support group,” Sanford Certified Nurse Practitioner Brandy Smith said. Smith hopes the support group will not only give patients a chance to share information, but also give them a chance to simply talk to each other about the disease. “Some of our most successful patients with Type 1 diabetes are those who take their medications and check their blood sugar are those who have a good support system around them,” Smith said. A support system that will hopefully help people like Magstadt be as healthy and happy as possible. “I choose to eat better and exercise and maybe it’s a good thing it happened to me.

New Additions to the Pharmics Supplement Line Include Prenatal Vitamins with DHA

Iron is vital to the growth and brain development of a baby, and he or she will tap into the existing iron supply of its mother to furnish their own need. If an expectant mother is deprived of iron long enough, she can become anemic: a condition very dangerous to the mother and child alike. It is imperative for a mother to increase her vitamin intake during pregnancy, as most of the nutrients she consumes will go the mental and physical health of her unborn child. With liquid iron supplements , mothers are finding an alternative option to typical anemic treatments.

Vitamins That Cost Pennies a Day Seen Delaying Dementia

Alzheimers accounts for 50 percent to 80 percent of all dementias, according to the Alzheimers Association . Vitamin Cocktail Study volunteers were given either a placebo or 0.5 milligrams of vitamin B12, 20 milligrams of vitamin B6 and 0.8 milligrams of folic acid. Their brains were scanned using magnetic-resonance imaging and blood levels of the protein homocysteine were measured at the start of the trial and two years later. The MRI scans compared how much gray matter was lost in brain regions most affected by Alzheimers disease . Its a big effect, much bigger than we would have dreamt of, A. David Smith said. I find the specificity of this staggering.

Obama “recognized that the diligence, creativity, and commitment of those working in the states to set up the marketplaces, which open on October 1st, have been especially important given the limitations on time, resources, staff, and in some states, support from across the political spectrum,” said a White House statement. Indeed, some conservative Republicans are trying to block funding for the exchanges and other aspects of the Obama health care plan.

UPS Ending Health Coverage for Spouses Signals Cost Cuts

Norquist on Health-Care Law: Political Capital

The survey found that lower-wage employees tend to contribute more for their employer-based insurance than higher-paid workers. “The perception that people have is people still feel the pain of health care costs,” said study lead author Gary Claxton, director of the foundation’s health care marketplace project. “That does not call into question that this is a modest rise in premiums this is good news.” Since 2003, health care premiums have risen 80%, the study showed. Wages have risen only 31% and inflation has gone up 27% in that same period. In the last year, the study showed that premiums for families averaged $16,351, with workers paying about $4,565 toward their premiums. Wages went up 1.8% and general inflation increased 1.1% over the last year.

That was double the figure in 2008. Another 6 percent imposed a surcharge on top of health-care premiums for insuring spouses. Is it a harbinger of things to come? Possibly, Paul Fronstin, a director at the Washington-based Employee Benefit Research Institute, said of UPSs decision. Once a major employer like UPS takes a step, all of the others will at least start looking at it. The question for other companies will be whether the health plan savings from dropping some spouses outweigh the cost in terms of recruitment and retention, he said.

Coffee, wine and sushi during pregnancy? Go ahead, says new book

In some other countries the recommendations are it’s OK. When in this country did pregnancy become this exercise in self-denial? Are women needlessly suffering? I think sometimes. I think we’ve moved this way over time and in some ways it’s very good, thinking through pregnancy and parenting in a thoughtful and careful way. I think that’s great. But I think there is, sometimes, this kind of shaming aspect to pregnancy.

Is unwanted pregnancy a medical disorder?

The programme I have advocated is intended to address the former problem, and is likely to help mitigate the latter. In any case, taking this worry seriously amounts to advocating maintaining the real threat of unwanted pregnancy as a deterrent against sexual promiscuity. As a deterrent strategy, this seems an unnecessarily draconian measure; rather like deterring people from entering ones garden by planting landmines. Sexism.

Glycolic Acid: The Secret Ingredient There has been a lot of chatter in the beauty sphere recently about an ingredient that promises to solve all of your skincare worries. The name may sound frightening, but fear not — it’s a highly soluble fruit acid that derives from sugar cane, and is often found on the ingredients list of most over-the-counter treatments. For anyone seeking an anti-ageing skin product that actually works, or for sufferers of hyperpigmentation or acne, glycolic acid is a true ‘wonder ingredient’ for its hydrating and exfoliating properties and with regular use, can lead to clearer, glowing skin. Get your fix either through a toner (the Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner is a great option), or moisturiser. Pucker Up If you don’t have a lip balm in every coat pocket, you’re in for a nasty outdoor experience.

Edinburgh pregnancy throws zoo into panda-monium

He mounted her several times, however full mating did not occur. Although both have bred before and have borne cubs with other pandas, they are both still relatively inexperienced. At the end of the day, this is year one of a ten-year conservation project here at Edinburgh Zoo. We are hugely encouraged by how much the natural sparks flew between the two animals, as like humans, not all male and female pandas are attracted to each other. Both were keen to mate but their inexperience showed. Iain Valentine, director of Research & Conservation Tian Tian and Yang Guang had a window of just 36 hours to mate Credit: PA But despite the best efforts of staff at the zoo, the pandas ran out of time to mate as their limited breeding season drew to a close.

City turns down pregnancy resource center project

Efforts to build a new pregnancy resource center in southwest Dayton appear to have hit a wall after the city denied a local doctor’s request for land rezoning.

Of course, thats not a guarantee. Amani Roland of St. Louis, who is also pregnant with her second child, said that past four months she thought nonmaternity wear was not an option, but she was pleased to find a few exceptions. She gained about 25 pounds with her first pregnancy, but this time around shes at about seven months and shes already gained 23 pounds. Though her size is mostly belly, Roland was shocked that an asymmetrical hem dress with a trapeze shape that she bought pre-pregnancy from Cos in the United Kingdom still fits so well shell wear it to an upcoming wedding. Roland isnt working full time, so she didnt need a lot of business attire like Crouppen. Instead she invested in an assortment of loose-fitting maternity tops, leggings and maternity jeans so that she can run around after her 3-year-old, Ailsa.
