Exercise, Bone Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease

by Patricia Gordon, R.N., Ph.D

Disturbances in mineral and bone metabolism occur early in the course of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Without prevention or treatment these disturbances progress to renal osteodystrophy encompassing varying combinations and degrees of high- and low-turnover bone disorders.

Although a broad body of literature indicates that load-bearing exercise has favorable effects on bone metabolism in the adult and aged skeleton [1, 2], there are no studies on the impact of exercise on bone in chronic or end stage renal disease (ESRD). However, much of what is known regarding the effects of exercise on bone, particularly in osteoporosis, may be helpful in the preservation of bone strength in these populations. This may be especially relevant due to the contribution of age-associated osteoporosis as the average age of CKD and ESRD patients increases.

While high impact activity is especially osteogenic [3], moderate intensity walking results in modest increases in lumbar bone mineral density (BMD) [4], indicating that low-impact activities can have a beneficial effect. This is an important consideration for individuals with kidney disease since they are prone to fatigue and generally have low exercise capacity [5]. Read more…

If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities and models get those fabulous bodies, we’re going to let you in on a little secret…their fitness trainer puts them on the Blood Type Diet®. Personal trainer and fitness expert Justin Gelband works with actors like Josh Duhamel, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway and most of the Victoria’s Secret catalog and runway models to get their physiques into top condition. The first step, he says, is changing their eating patterns and getting them to eat right for their type.

Gelband, a former competitive swimmer, says he discovered the Blood Type Diet® about 7 years ago when a client, a British DJ who is famous on the international nightclub circuit, told Gelband that his doctor recommended that he go on the Blood Type Diet®. Gelband decided to give it a try.

“I read the book and started looking at how it works,” Gelband said, “I cut out the avoids, limited the neutrals and loaded up on the beneficial foods. Almost immediately, I had more energy, better digestion, I was leaner and I felt better.”

The Blood Type – Fertility Connection

Let me tell you one special thing. It’s a long time for me, i.e. 10 years, awaiting my first baby to be born. During 1993 up to 2004, we had tried many best efforts in order my wife to pregnant, but no result at all. It was not, until November 2004 when my first boy was born. That was the best time in my life.

In relation to that my own story, I’d love to share with you regarding what Dr. Ann Quasarano, my favorite naturopath, talked about the relation between fertility and your blood type. I believe the following explanation are very useful key for those having problem of infertility.

Exercise Right for Your Blood Type

Des Depass , a personal fitness trainer who employs the concepts of Eat Right 4 Your Type® and the GenoType® Diet with his clients. He says that when clients exercise right for their type, he notices extreme examples of body change – usually in the direction that they are looking for.

“Some people say, ‘I want to slim down’ or ‘I want to bulk up’ or whatever they want to do with their body. As long as they follow their diet, they are capable of accomplishing that. It’s perfect! Everyone gets exactly what they are looking for.”

He first learned about the program from his mother, who practices Holistic Detoxification, Colon Therapy and is also a Massage Therapist. “She had gone to see Dr. D’Adamo and when she came back, she handed me Eat Right 4 Your Type®and said that I have to start eating differently,” Des explains, “I am blood type O and had been eating closer to my mother’s type A vegetarian style.”

Go Cycling for Your Health and Fun, Part II

Getting started for ciclyng

The beauty of cycling is its flexibility. You can enjoy cycling virtually anytime – by yourself, with friends, for leisure, in competition or as a mode of transport.

If you are new to cycling or not a confident bicycle rider, it can be a good idea to start cycling on bike paths. These are usually traffic-free and offer a scenic route. Cycling around your local roads can also be a good idea, as they usually have less traffic, slower motor vehicle speeds,and the roads are familiar.

Riding on local roads can be a great way to familiarise yourself with riding on the road and gaining confidence in cycling. Once you are more confident, you may want to use bicycle lanes on main roads. Whilst main roads are usually the most direct way to get to destinations, they usually carry more traffic.

Remember to maintain your safety and the safety of others at all times.

Antiviral Treatment of Influenza: The Latest Guidelines

In this time of extreme climate phenomenon, I’d like to share with you regarding latest explanation from Dr. Alicia Fry, a physician with CDC’s Influenza Division, about recent lessons learned regarding influenza antiviral drugs and CDC’s treatment recommendations for the use of antiviral drugs during the 2010-2011 flu season.

In 2009-2010, the world experienced the first influenza pandemic in more than 40 years. And while the pandemic was less severe than many feared, millions of people in the United States became ill, hundreds of thousands were hospitalized, and thousands of people died. Studies prior to the 2009 H1N1 pandemic indicated that antiviral drugs were not commonly used by clinicians for influenza treatment, even among hospitalized patients. During the pandemic, CDC issued guidance on the use of antiviral agents promoting early and empiric treatment of severely ill persons and ill persons at high risk for complications from influenza and implemented clinician education and communications activities around this guidance. These efforts seem to have paid off. According to data from the Emerging Infections Program, which tracks reports of influenza-related hospitalizations in 10 states, approximately 80% of children and adults hospitalized with influenza infection received antiviral treatment during the pandemic.

How to Avoid SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

It is the end of 2010, and I suggest you to learn from Dr.Ann Quasarano regarding seasonal affective disorder. I believe her following suggestion benefits you to anticipate your health in facing the change of the year. As you know, almost all part in the world is experiencing the extreme change of climate, as what’s is happening in my region, Indonesia (South East Asia).

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) affects million of people everywhere, about half a million people in the US only, each year. It’s thought that there are many more cases, including those who have a milder form of SAD, who don’t seek treatment. Often called the winter blues, SAD sufferers become depressed when the winter season rolls around. Below are a few suggestions for avoiding SAD this winter:

Study Links Blood Type and Fertility

This time,  I would like to share with you the latest health study that links blood type and fertility.

In a study presented at the American Society of Reproductive Medicine Conference in Denver, the researchers at Yale and Albert Einstein College of Medicine measured levels of a chemical called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in 560 women undergoing fertility treatments and found that those women with type O blood had chemical signs linked to low egg numbers.

The control group had an average age of 35 and those with O blood type were found to have higher levels of FSH – almost twice the levels of women with the blood type A antigen. This is significant as high levels of FSH are thought to be an indicator that a woman’s ovarian egg reserve is diminishing – which can reduce a woman’s chances of conception once a woman reaches her 30s and 40s.
