According to the Mayo Clinic, “People who have metabolic syndrome typically have apple-shaped bodies, meaning they have larger waists and carry a lot of weight around their abdomens. It's thought that having a pear-shaped body — that is, carrying more of your weight around your hips and having a narrower waist — doesn't increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease and other complications of metabolic syndrome.”

As estrogen levels decline in postmenopausal women, recurrent urinary tract infections (RUTI) can be an unpleasant result. RUTI is defined as three episodes of urinary tract infection (UTI) in the previous 12 months or two episodes in the last six months.

For the first time, aging research specialists from Indiana University, the University of South Florida, and Pennsylvania State University have identified a form of mental exercise that can reduce the risk of dementia. The cognitive training, called speed of processing, includes 10 one-hour training sessions over six weeks, then up to eight additional “booster” sessions. The training was found to have benefits up to 10 years after the training was completed. Ask our pharmacist about other ways to help with memory.

Eating various types of non-fried fish may help reduce joint pain and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis, according to a study recently published in Arthritis Care and Research. The lead author, Dr. Sara K. Tedeschi, of Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, noted that the observed reductions in pain and swelling from the lowest to the highest group in fish intake were clinically significant: “The magnitude of the effect is large — about one-third of the expected magnitude of the standard drug treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.” For more information, visit https://buff.ly/2xLWDSQ and, ask our pharmacist about the benefits of fish oil supplements.
