;Women now, compared to younger women generations before them, are less healthy,; says study co author Melissa Caughey, a cardiovascular epidemiologist and instructor at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Medicine. ;It;s probably reflective of poorer health in general.;The study, which appeared in a special women 's health edition of the journal Circulation, looked at the medical records of nearly 30,000 people ages 35 to 74 who were hospitalized for a heart attack between 1995 and 2014. By the end of that time period, nearly a third of patients were considered "young " (ages 35 to 54), up from 27% in 1995 to 1999, according to the study. And that increase seemed to be driven largely by female patients, the paper says.
Whilst some positive progress has been made, it is evident that these policies are not yet sufficient to reverse the increase in obesity and type 2 Diabetes not to mention various related cancers, heart disease and tooth decay.If Theresa May and her ministers are to finally tackle this burning injustice of health inequality, we need a much more robust and hard hitting plan to take immediate effect.
South Sudanese refugees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo commuting to their home country in search of food not given to them across the border do not only constitute a sad humanitarian tale. Their desperate movements also increase the risk of the much feared Ebola virus being transported to the world s youngest nation. There is no cause of alarm, though, as no case of the disease has been reported in South Sudan. We are also as prepared as we can be to handle any eventuality if it breaks out, says Dr. James Wani, Director General of the Yei River area s Ministry of Health.
The too often long road to diagnosis presents one of the greatest challenges affecting the health, survival, well being and indeed the very identity of people affected by a rare disease and their families, Yann Le Cam, CEO of Eurordis Rare Diseases Europe and Global Commission co chair, said in a statement.

Chronic wasting disease (CWD), which is nicknamed ;zombie deer disease,; gets its name from a range of symptoms. For deer, elk and moose, these include stumbling, listlessness, drooling and rapid weight loss. The fatal disease degrades the brains, spines and bodies of the animals it infects, and there are no known treatments or vaccines.No cases of CWD have been recorded in humans. It has not even been definitely proven that humans can be infected by CWD, though some research has suggested it 's possible. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that as of January 2019, the disease has been reported in deer, elk and moose in 251 counties in 24 U.S. states, primarily in the Midwest. It has also been found in two provinces in Canada. While CWD is still relatively rare, infection rates among deer and elk in areas where the disease is most common have been recorded at about 10 25%, the CDC says, and rates can be especially high among captive deer. CWD was first identified in Colorado in the late 1960s.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition affecting people who have too much sugar in their blood. Having high blood sugar can be dangerous, as it can lead to serious health problems with the heart, eyes, nerves, kidneys and feet.

To date, 294 people have been discharged from Ebola Treatment Centres (ETCs) and enrolled in a dedicated monitoring and support programme. Of confirmed and probable cases with reported age and sex, 57% (481 841) were female, and 30% (253 842) were children aged less than 18 years. No new cases among healthcare workers were reported in the last week, leaving the number of healthcare workers infected to 68 with 21 deaths.Thirteen (13) of the 19 affected health zones have active virus transmission, reporting at least one confirmed case in the last 21 days (28 January to 17 February 2019). Over this period, a total of 88 confirmed cases were reported from Katwa (55), Butembo (15), Kyondo (4), Vuhovi (4), Kalunguta (2), Biena (1), Komanda (1), Mabalako (1), Manguredjipa (1), Masereka (1), Mutwanga (1), Oicha (1), and Bunia (1) a newly affected health zone. The major urban centres of Katwa and Butembo remain notable areas where most cases were reported, with 80% (70 88) of cases reported in the last three weeks.

Patients receiving hormone therapy as part of their gender transition treatment have an elevated risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including heart attacks, strokes and blood clotting, researchers say. Researchers determined and compared the incidence of CVD cases in the transgender population with that reported in the general population. The study showed that transwomen individuals, assigned male sex at birth but with female gender identity, receiving hormones as part of their transition had more than twice as many strokes as women and nearly twice as many strokes as men. In addition, there were five times as many blood clotting among transwomen than women and 4.5 times more than men. Heart attacks occurred at more than twice the rate among transwomen than women. On the other hand, transmen those assigned female sex at birth but had male gender identity and received hormones had a more than three fold rise in heart attack risk compared with women, said the study, published in the journal, Circulation. "In the light of our results, we urge both physicians and transgender individuals to be aware of this increased cardiovascular risk," said Nienke Nota, researcher at the Amsterdam University Medical Center in the Netherlands. "It may be helpful to reduce the risk factors by stopping smoking, exercising, eating a healthy diet and losing weight, if needed before starting therapy, and clinicians should continue to evaluate patients on an ongoing basis thereafter," suggested Nota. For the study, the researchers included 3,875 individuals who had received hormone treatment 2,517 transgender women received estrogen, with or without androgen suppressors, and 1,358 transgender men received testosterone as part of their transition.
