Why Angela’s Pre-Existing Medical Condition was Preventing Her from Losing Weight

Medications for treating a pre-existing medical condition can often lead to weight gain in the patients taking them. In situations where a person is already overweight, the “cure” can often be more dangerous than the “disease.”   This no-win situation was recently faced by Angela Rodriguez, a member of the clinical staff at EVEXIAS Medical Centers, , in Rockwall, Texas. She was taking medications to control an existing condition and their side effect was increased weight.  Join her as she shares her story of taking back her life by modifying her dosage and losing excess weight.

What You Can Learn About Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment from Texas Ranger Pitching Ace Colby Lewis

On the first day of summer 2016, things were looking great for the Texas Rangers and their pitching ace, Colby Lewis. The National League’s Cincinnati Reds were in in town for a couple of interleague games and Lewis and the Rangers, riding a multi-game winning-streak and a 10 game lead over their nearest Western Division competition, were excited about the prospects for the game. Lewis was enjoying the best season of his career, with six wins, no losses and a solid 3.21 ERA. Unfortunately, his first loss would come on this June night and to make matters even worse, he would sustain an injury to the "lat" muscle  in his back, potentially ending his season.  The best case scenario would be for Lewis to spend two months on the injured player list, but after that much time, the race for the American League pennant will be all but decided.

Here’s Why Sunscreen is Not Enough to Protect You This Summer

The Gershwin brothers wrote many classic songs and one of the best-loved began with the familiar refrain: "Summertime, and the livin' is easy." However, many people who love being outdoors during the summertime have first-hand and often painful experience that while the living might be easy, the damage that the lucky 'ol sun can do to one's skin is not a pretty sight, even if the fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high! For many years, dermatologists and cosmetics companies have strongly urged all sun-worshippers to just say no to these rays. Anyone who loves outdoor activities that are enjoyed during the spring and summer has lathered on the sunscreen, worn those floppy hats and cautiously avoided direct sunlight.

How Balancing Hormones Can Help You Lose Weight and Keep it Off

The trajectory of worldwide obesity rates has been on a steady climb for more than 30 years. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the federal agency charged with tracking the incidence of disease in America, more than 35 percent of U.S. adults are clinically obese. This translates to more than 80 million people. Obesity-related medical conditions include heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer and these are some of the leading causes of preventable deaths. Plus, the cost of obesity is staggering. The CDC estimated the annual medical costs of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion and the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. Sterile statistics often obscure the human misery of obesity. Being chronically overweight takes a serious toll on the health and happiness of those it affects. Just ask Brandy Prince,

That Chest Pain Could Mean Heart Attack or Stroke. Here’s How Testosterone May Lower Your Risk.

Further, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but it affects men more than women. And finally, every year about 735,000 Americans experience the pain and life-threatening trauma of a heart attack.
