Peripheral artery disease is a dangerous health condition that causes the narrowing of the arteries in the arms and legs, stomach, and the head. The condition is dangerous because it not only reduces critical blood and oxygen flow to these body areas, but it also increases an individual’s risk of stroke. PAD is especially serious for people with the blood-clotting disorder factor V Leiden.

A study conducted by researchers from the University of Surrey has found that a high-sugar diet can change the way the body metabolizes fat, leading to an increased risk of heart disease. The study, published in the journal Clinical Science, suggests that high consumption of sugar alters how the liver functions to break down fat.

Participants in the study consumed a high-sugar diet for 12 weeks. At the end of the study, researchers found that participants had higher levels of fat in their blood and liver than participants who did not eat the high-sugar diet.

In reality, you could be suffering from an entirely different condition known as wrist tendonitis. Advanced Radiology treats patients with tendonitis of the wrist and other joints using the ultrasonic knife therapy Tenex TX1.

So, what's the difference between carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis?

Research performed by the American College of Cardiology shows that cardiovascular diseases like heart disease, stroke and peripheral artery disease cause one-third of deaths around the world.

The study reviewed the deaths of every country around the globe over the past 25 years.

The countries with the highest rates of cardiovascular deaths were in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, Southern Africa and South America. Although the United States, Canada, Japan and Western Europe experienced lower rates of cardiovascular death over the last 25 years, these decreasing rates have begun to slow down and plateau, according to the ACC.

Back injuries are common in sports. Take German Grand Prix driver Pascal Wehrlein, who suffered a fractured vertebra during a crash in Monaco this May. Slipped disks, strains and sprains can leave players on the bench, but another common back injury for athletes is spinal compression fractures.

What Are Spinal Compression Fractures? 

Compression fractures are fractures that occur when there is a compression force on the vertebrae of the back. When a compression fracture occurs, the affected vertebrae collapse due to the force exerted on them. In most compression fractures, the front part of the bone collapses, leaving the vertebrae a wedge shape.

When you feel a migraine coming on, do you immediately reach for a pain reliever? Did you know that relying too much on pain medicine can actually mean more headaches? Rebound headaches happen when you stop taking your migraine pain relievers for a few days and your body goes through withdrawal symptoms. Dr. Budler offers an alternative to pain relievers called the SPG block procedure to give people with migraines long-lasting relief without the risk of rebound headaches.

Cincinnati Reds fans anxiously waited for good news about star pitcher Anthony "Disco" Desclafani’s elbow after the pitcher reported forearm soreness.  

Desclafani’s elbow was especially concerning to Reds fans. The pitcher just left a rehab stint with the Dayton Dragons for a partially torn UCL that has kept him from pitching this season. Fans sighed with relief when the problem with Desclafani’s arm was declared unrelated to his torn UCL, but instead was deemed to be a less serious diagnosis of tendonitis.

Calcium is one the most abundant minerals in your body, and one of the most important, too. It strengthens bones and teeth and helps prevent bone diseases like osteoporosis and osteopenia. Calcium is so critical to bone health that Dr. Budler encourages patients to eat a calcium-rich diet in order to meet the recommended dietary guidelines of 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams per day.

A new editorial published in the British Journal of Medicine suggests that foods high in cholesterol and saturated fat are not major contributors to heart disease, but instead inflammation is the key factor behind cardiovascular conditions. 

The authors of the editorial are three cardiologists from the United States,England and Switzerland. In their essay, the doctors argue that heart disease education should be shifted away from the traditional teachings of instructing patients to eat a low-fat diet and reducing LDL cholesterol numbers to finding the cause of inflammation in the body and reducing it.
