A daily pill containing four medicines can cut the number of heart attacks and strokes by a third, a study shows. The polypill contains blood-thinning aspirin, a cholesterol-lowering statin and two drugs to lower blood pressure. The researchers - in Iran and the UK - said the pill had a huge impact but cost just pennies a day.They suggest giving it to everyone over a certain age in poorer countries, where doctors have fewer options and are less able to assess individuals.Coronary heart disease and stroke are the top two causes of death worldwide, killing more than 15 million people...

CDC Warns of 'Super' Salmonella in Beef, Cheese

By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter THURSDAY, Aug. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- An antibiotic-resistant strain of salmonella is sickening people who eat contaminated beef and unpasteurized soft Mexican cheese, U.S. health officials warned Thursday. First seen in 2017, this bacterial strain has already caused 255 Americans in 32 states to become ill, and many more cases are expected. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has pinpointed the source to contaminated beef from U.S. sources and soft Mexican cheese, which suggests that cattle in both countries are infected. "The resistant strains developed in animals, and those strains can then...

Listen to your body

Often, the most easily identifiable symptoms are missed by people as they do not think them to be a sign that something is amiss. Getting up frequently at night to urinate — a condition known as nocturia for instance, can be one of the most innocuous symptoms of high blood pressure. However, approximately 25 per cent of the patients who walk in with symptoms of nocturia do not even mention it till the doctor asks, primarily because most of them are not even aware that it is one of the signs of high blood pressure. Dr A. Sai Ravishanker, senior...

Appeals court rules South Bend abortion clinic can stay open

A federal appeals court has upheld an injunction allowing a South Bend abortion clinic to remain open without a state-required license until there is a final ruling in a lawsuit on the license. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling Thursday, thwarting an attempt by Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill to reverse the opening of the Whole Woman's Health clinic in June. The appeals panel also ruled that the state may perform inspections and require other medical regulations, but that the clinic can continue to provide medication-induced abortions. U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker ruled in May that...

Cheap combo pill cuts heart, stroke risks, study finds

A cheap daily pill that combines four drugs cut the risk of heart attacks, strokes and heart failure in a large study, suggesting it could be a good way to help prevent heart problems especially in poor countries. The pills contained two blood pressure drugs, a cholesterol medicine and aspirin. Many people can't afford or don't stick with taking so many medicines separately, so doctors think a polypill might help. A previous study testing one in India found it lowered cholesterol and blood pressure. The new study is much larger and gives stronger evidence because it tracked heart attacks, strokes...

Feds to revamp confidentiality rules for addiction treatment

Federal health officials proposed Thursday to revamp stringent patient confidentiality regulations from the 1970s to encourage coordination among medical professionals treating people caught in the nation's opioid epidemic. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said the goal is to make it easier to share a patient's drug treatment history with doctors treating that person for other problems. That can stave off serious — even fatal — errors, like unwittingly prescribing opioid painkillers to a surgical patient with a history of dependence. A patient's consent would still be required. Initially the rules were meant to reassure people seeking drug treatment...
