Better classification of dry eye disease will aid diagnosis, Tx

(HealthDay)—Attention to the subtypes of dry eye disease may better equip clinicians to diagnose and treat cases, according to a review article recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Janine A. Clayton, M.D., from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., conducted a literature review to describe current knowledge of the causes and treatment of dry eye, ongoing research, and future directions for advancing knowledge and treatment of the condition. Clayton explains that dry eye has many causes. It can occur with other conditions, as a consequence of environmental triggers, or as a side effect of medications,...

Parents Fret Over Fussy Eaters - but What Works?

By Serena Gordon HealthDay Reporter FRIDAY, Sept. 21, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- The nightly dinner battles many parents have with picky toddlers can be exhausting. Now, research suggests that either pressuring or rewarding kids to eat healthier may backfire. "These practices can reinforce fussy eating, increase preferences for unhealthy foods, and lead to excessive weight gain," study author Holly Harris, from the Centre for Children's Health Research at Queensland University of Technology in Australia, said in a statement. One U.S. pediatrician agreed. "Parents who address picky eating either with coercion or bribes may be setting the child up for problems...

FDA: Pets May Have Bad Reactions to Flea Medicine

FRIDAY, Sept. 21, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Flea medicines protect your pet, but some animals can have serious side effects from products containing isoxazoline, U.S. health officials warn. Although most dogs and cats handle this powerful pesticide just fine, others can have severe reactions, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Thursday. Isoxazoline products have been associated with neurologic reactions, including muscle tremors, loss of muscle control and seizures. Most dogs and cats don't have bad reactions to these products, but seizures can occur even if they haven't happened before, the agency said. The FDA-approved drugs in this class are:...

Fewer American teens having sex, most using birth control

(HealthDay)—In a finding that should ease parents' minds, new research shows that fewer American teens are having sex and most of those who do are using some form of birth control. But scientists also found that has become more common among students and condom use has declined. "Many become sexually active during high school," said study co-author Laura Lindberg, a principal research scientist at the Guttmacher Institute, the nonprofit research organization that published the report on Sept. 20. "It is critical to ensure that all young people have access to comprehensive sexuality education and sexual and reproductive health care services...

Stiffening of blood vessels may point to dementia risk

Arterial stiffness among people with mild cognitive impairments could put them at higher risk for progressing to dementia, which may include Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study exploring the connection between the brain and vascular health. The French study, published Friday in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, looked at data on 375 elderly people with such as memory issues and slight declines in abilities. Within 4.5 years, about 28 percent of the patients developed dementia. Researchers considered several factors for the progression and found that higher pulse wave velocity, which measures the elasticity of arteries, was a likely...

Low vitamin D levels tied to interstitial lung disease

(HealthDay)—Vitamin D deficiency is independently associated with subclinical interstitial lung disease (ILD) and its progression, according to a study recently published in the Journal of Nutrition. Samuel M. Kim, M.D., from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, and colleagues used data from 6,302 participants in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis who had baseline serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) concentrations and computed tomography imaging partial lung fields spanning over 10 years. The researchers found that 33 percent of participants had replete (≥30 ng/mL), 35 percent intermediate (20 to

Sensitivity for CRC detection up with decreasing FIT threshold

(HealthDay)—Programmatic sensitivity for colorectal cancer (CRC) detection increases modestly with decreasing fecal immunochemical test (FIT) positivity thresholds, according to a study published online Sept. 18 in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Kevin Selby, M.D., from Kaiser Permanente Northern California in Oakland, and colleagues identified programmatic (multitest) FIT performance characteristics and optimal FIT quantitative hemoglobin positivity thresholds among adults aged 50 to 75 years who were eligible for screening. A total of 640,859 individuals completed baseline quantitative FIT (2013 to 2014) and were followed for two years. The researchers found that 75 percent of participants had at least one additional FIT...
