Health Alert: Anger May Worsen Heart Failure. Among a group of 24 heart failure patients, researchers observed an association between feelings of anger in the previous week and an elevated diastolic blood pressure reading. Journal of Cardiac Failure, August 2020

 

Diet: Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet Can Benefit the Older Population. Older obese adults are at greater risk of developing cardiometabolic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A new study found that obese seniors who adopted a low-carb, high-fat diet for eight weeks experienced significant improvements in their overall lipid profile, as well as improved insulin sensitivity. Nutrition and Metabolism, August 2020

 

Exercise: More Intense Exercise Is Better, But Any Exercise Is Beneficial. An analysis of data concerning over 96,000 middle-aged adults who wore activity trackers found that those who engaged in any level of physical activity on a regular basis were less likely to die over the following three years, with the risk of early death moving inversely with the intensity level of such physical activity. Lead author Dr. Tessa Strain explains, “Our results show that doing more activity of any intensity is beneficial, but that expending those calories in more intense activity is better still. By gradually building up the intensity of physical activity we do each day we can improve our future health.” Nature Medicine, August 2020

 

Chiropractic: Are Musicians More at Risk for Musculoskeletal Pain? Questionnaires completed by orchestra musicians and working age adults in Finland revealed that 39% of musicians reported back pain in the last 30 days, compared with 27% of working age adults. The results showed that orchestra musicians were also two times more likely to report pain in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and fingers. Doctors of chiropractic are skilled in the treatment of these types of musculoskeletal conditions and educate patients on posture, exercise, and other preventative strategies. Occupational Medicine, August 2020

 

Mental Attitude: Risk Factors for Postmenopausal Depression. According to a study that included data concerning 485 middle aged and older women, the following are risk factors for postmenopausal depression: being a widow or separated from one’s partner; history of excessive alcohol consumption; long-term illness that requires continuous medication; physical disability; and past diagnosis for any mental disorder. Menopause, September 2020

 

Wellness/Prevention: Things to Do As You Age... Getting older usually means and increased risk of chronic diseases, such as hypertension, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. The AGS Health in Aging Foundation recommends the following: get your blood pressure checked at least once per year because is leads to heart disease, kidney issues, blindness, and other health issues; get your cholesterol levels check every five years as elevated levels can cause heart disease and strokes; and get checked for diabetes, especially if you are overweight, hungry or thirsty all the time, or have to urinate often. AGS Health in Aging Foundation, August 2020
