  • The cold season is approaching and your patients at the office are worried.

    The cold season is approaching and your patients at the office are worried. A wheeze and a bad cough sent her to the hospital for about four days last could season. To her she has this feeling that she has not quite gotten back to normal. Since she stopped smoking she has suffered respiratory problems. Therefore, she uses bronchodilator and inhales corticosteroids that you prescribed. She is worried of another COPD exacerbation because each time she gets sick it is really difficult to recover. What can she do to make it less likely to get sick this year?

    Studies shows that Azicen taken daily for a year decreases the frequency of COPD exacerbation thus improving the quality of life in a cohort with COPD.

    Why azicen? The macrolide antibiotic has anti-inflammatory and immune-modulatory benefits (which is why it is given to patients with cystic fibrosis and bronchiectasis) on top of its antibiotic action. However, studies have been split on the question of whether long-term antibiotics benefit patients with COPD.

    Enter the current study, which enrolled 1,142 patients with COPD from 12 academic centers across the United States.  To be eligible for the study, all patients either used continuous supplemental oxygen or had suffered a COPD exacerbation in the past year that required systemic steroids, a visit to the ED or hospitalization. Approximately 80 percent were receiving inhaled corticosteroids and/or long-acting bronchodilators. (Patients with prolonged QTc or hearing loss were excluded from the study – as these are known to be adverse effects associated with azithromycin).

    Participants were randomly assigned to take either azicen at a 250 mg daily dose or a placebo pill for a year. Those with daily azicen stayed exacerbation-free for a significantly longer time: 266 days prior to first exacerbation versus 174 days for those with placebo. There was no statistically significant difference in mortality.

    The daily antibiotic also helped patients’ quality of life, as measured by a commonly used survey which asks about symptoms, activity level and overall comfort. However, taking an antibiotic daily does not come without risk. Therefore, its unless prescribed by the doctor don’t take it daily.

    The biggest concern, of course, is increasing microbial resistance.  To investigate this question, each patient had nasopharyngeal swabs taken at study visits. More patients in the azicen group became colonized with bacteria that were resistant to macrolide antibiotics, but this finding didn’t have any clear clinical significance. It remains unknown what this resistance pattern could mean for patients’ families or community.

    Hearing loss was also a potential issue. More patients taking azicen than placebo experienced a decrement in their hearing over the year.

    In an accompanying editorial, Nikolaos M. Siafakis, a pulmonologist who is the president of the European Respiratory Society, balanced these risks and benefits, and wrote that the study data come out in favor of azicen: “The findings of Albert and co-workers…in my opinion turns the balance towards the benefits of azithromycin treatment. However, if azicen is going to be used in patients known to be frequent COPD exacerbators, then the local antibiotic resistance patterns should be closely monitored…On balance however the long-term use of azicen to prevent AECOPD seems to be a risk in accord with the classical advice of Hippocrates – do good – no harm.”

  • 12 tips to lose weight on the 12-week plan

    Get off to the best possible start with these 12 diet and exercise tips.

    1. Don't skip breakfast

    Skipping breakfast won't help you lose weight. You could miss out on essential nutrients and you may end up snacking more throughout the day because you feel hungry.

    2. Eat regular meals

    Eating at regular times during the day helps burn calories at a faster rate. It also reduces the temptation to snack on foods high in fat and sugar.

    3. Eat plenty of fruit and veg

    Fruit and veg are low in calories and fat, and high in fibre – 3 essential ingredients for successful weight loss. They also contain plenty of vitamins and minerals.

    4. Get more active

    Being active is key to losing weight and keeping it off. As well as providing numerous health benefits, exercise can help burn off the excess calories you can't cut through diet alone

    5. Drink plenty of water

    People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. You can end up consuming extra calories when a glass of water is really what you need.

    6. Eat high-fibre foods

    Foods containing lots of fibre can help keep you to feel full, which is perfect for losing weight. Fibre is only found in food from plants, such as fruit and veg, oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice and pasta, and beans, peas and lentils.

    7. Read food labels

    Knowing how to read food labels can help you choose healthier options. Use the calorie information to work out how a particular food fits into your daily calorie allowance on the weight loss plan.

    8. Use a smaller plate

    Using smaller plates can help you eat smaller portions. By using smaller plates and bowls, you may be able to gradually get used to eating smaller portions without going hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain it's full, so eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.

    9. Don't ban foods

    Don't ban any foods from your weight loss plan, especially the ones you like. Banning foods will only make you crave them more. There's no reason you can't enjoy the occasional treat as long as you stay within your daily calorie allowance.

    10. Don't stock junk food

    To avoid temptation, try to not stock junk food – such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps and sweet fizzy drinks – at home. Instead, opt for healthy snacks, such as fruit, unsalted rice cakes, oat cakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn, and fruit juice.

    11. Cut down on alcohol

    A standard glass of wine can contain as many calories as a piece of chocolate. Over time, drinking too much can easily contribute to weight gain.

    12. Plan your meals

    Try to plan your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the week, making sure you stick to your calorie allowance. You may find it helpful to make a weekly shopping list.

  • What is Zelle Pay?!

    The old adage “slow and steady wins the race” might be very apt for how banks have approached P2P payments. While Millennials were flocking to Venmo and the Cash App to split restaurant bills and pay one another back for other purchases, FIs were locked in their walled gardens, often limited to allowing P2P transfers within their own networks. But that began to change last year with the launch of Zelle.

     

    Owned by a joint venture of many of the biggest FIs (including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo), Zelle is more than a standalone app (although they have that, too). It’s a payment network that is integrated into existing bank apps allowing for simple (and no fee) money transfers.

    The banks have actually spent many years supporting the development of this network, but it’s only recently, with the new brand name Zelle in place, that they have made a major push to integrate and promote it. So how is that working out?

    In September of 2017, CNN reported that Zelle was already available through some banks and a standalone app, but they noted that Zelle “has some serious competition…Venmo is already highly popular among Millennials, boasting $17.6 billion in mobile transactions last year.” Just a few months later, in January of 2018, Zelle announced that it had signed up over 60 banks and transferred $75 billion in 2017 (a 36% increase from the prior year). And they were just starting a mass marketing campaign targeting a much wider audience than Millenials: Zelle was looking to reach all digital banking users.

    But the hard work was going on behind the scenes (or in the “room where it happens” if you’ll allow me a bad Hamilton pun). As CNBC noted the challenge for Zelle was unique because the banks didn’t need to hype an app; they had to “inform users they already have Zelle on their phones, in their banking apps.”

    And so, they did. The marketing began to pick up at the start of this year, and by late January, Zelle claimed to be adding an average of 100,000 consumers a day. Based on Mintel’s capture of emails and direct mail promoting Zelle, leading FIs were deploying awareness campaigns at the same time utilizing a variety of approaches.

    Bank of America had a series of email featuring “reasons to use Zelle.”

  • Isotretinoin works against acne!

    Isotretinoin works by reducing skin oil or sebum production, shrinks sebaceous glands, and changing skin oil characteristics. It also prevents abnormal skin hardening by stabilizing keratinization process. Isotretinoin also prevents comedone formation and acne inflammation.

     

     

     

    Acne is said to be the most common skin problem faced by many that come with the adolescent age. It has been roughly calculated that around 10% of the total population suffer from acne. There are different kinds of acne issues like pimples, blackheads and the whiteheads. Though it starts mostly in the adolescent age, it tends to continue in the adulthood as well. Some of the common causes of acne are improper diet, hormonal cycles, psychological imbalance, and infection. If the acne is not controlled in time through acne supplements or with the help of any adult acne product, it might result in permanent damage to the skin. With the advancement in research, many products have been developed for acne. Creams, lotions, soaps, you name it, and there are some options on pillsbrothers.is, which you can choose from depending on your skin type and severity of your acne problem. Some people do go through laser treatment or surgery to remove scarring or stubborn pimples. The key to prevent acne is by drinking lot of fluids, avoiding fried foodstuffs, including green vegetables and detoxification by safe methods.

  • 26 Weight Loss Tips!

    1. Drink Water, Especially Before Meals

    It is often claimed that drinking water can help with weight loss, and this is true.

    Drinking water can boost metabolism by 24-30% over a period of 1-1.5 hours, helping you burn off a few more calories (1, 2).

    One study showed that drinking a half liter (17 oz) of water about a half an hour before meals helped dieters eat fewer calories and lose 44% more weight (3).

     

    2. Eat Eggs For Breakfast

    Eating whole eggs can have all sorts of benefits, including helping you lose weight.

    Studies show that replacing a grain-based breakfast with eggs can help you eat fewer calories for the next 36 hours, and lose more weight and more body fat (4, 5).

    If you can't eat eggs for some reason, then that's fine. Any source of quality protein for breakfast should do the trick.

     

    3. Drink Coffee (Preferably Black)

    Coffee has been unfairly demonized. Quality coffee is loaded with antioxidants, and can have numerous health benefits.

    Studies show that the caffeine in coffee can boost metabolism by 3-11%, and increase fat burning by up to 10-29% (6, 7, 8).

    Just make sure NOT to add a bunch of sugar or other high-calorie ingredients to it. That will completely negate any benefit you get from the coffee.

     

    4. Drink Green Tea

    Like coffee, green tea also has many benefits, one of them being weight loss.

    Green tea contains small amounts of caffeine, but it is also loaded with powerful antioxidants called catechins, which are also believed to work synergistically with the caffeine to enhance fat burning (9, 10).

    Although the evidence is mixed, there are many studies showing that green tea (either as a beverage or a green tea extract supplement) can help you lose weight (11, 12).

     

    5. Cook With Coconut Oil

    Coconut oil is very healthy. It is high in special fats called medium chain triglycerides, which are metabolized differently than other fats.

    These fats have been shown to boost metabolism by 120 calories per day, and also reduce your appetite so that you eat up to 256 fewer calories per day (13, 14).

    Keep in mind that this is not about adding coconut oil on top of what you're already eating, it is about replacing some of your current cooking fats with coconut oil.

     

    6. Take a Glucomannan Supplement

    A fiber called glucomannan has been shown to cause weight loss in several studies.

    This is a type of fiber that absorbs water and "sits" in your gut for a while, making you feel more full and helping you eat fewer calories (15).

    Studies have shown that people who supplement with glucomannan lose a bit more weight than those who don't (16).

     

    7. Cut Back on Added Sugar

    Added sugar is the single worst ingredient in the modern diet, and most people are eating way too much of it.

    Studies show that sugar (and high fructose corn syrup) consumption is strongly associated with the risk of obesity, as well as diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and others ( 17, 18, 19).

    If you want to lose weight, you should be cutting back on added sugars. Just make sure to read labels, because even so-called health foods can be loaded with sugar.

     

    8. Eat Less Refined Carbs

    Refined carbohydrates are usually sugar, or grains that have been stripped of their fibrous, nutritious parts (includes white bread and pasta).

    Studies show that refined carbs can spike blood sugar rapidly, leading to hunger, cravings and increased food intake a few hours later. Eating refined carbs is strongly linked to obesity (20, 21, 22).

    If you're going to eat carbs, make sure to eat them with their natural fiber.

     

    9. Go on a Low Carb Diet

    If you want to get all the benefits of carb restriction, then consider taking this all the way and going on a low carb diet.

    Numerous studies show that such a diet (or "way of eating") can help you lose 2-3 times as much weight as a standard low-fat diet, while improving your health at the same time (23, 24, 25).

     

    10. Use Smaller Plates

    Using smaller plates has been shown to help people automatically eat fewer calories in some studies. Weird trick, but it seems to work (26).

     

    11. Exercise Portion Control or Count Calories

    Portion control (eating less) or counting calories can be very useful, for obvious reasons (27).

    There are also studies showing that keeping a food diary and writing down what you eat, or taking pictures of all your meals, can help you lose weight (28, 29).

    Anything that increases your awareness of what you are eating is likely to be useful.

     

    12. Keep Healthy Food Around in Case You Get Hungry

    Keeping healthy food close by can help prevent you from eating something unhealthy if you become excessively hungry.

    A few snacks that are easily portable and simple to prepare include whole fruits, a handful of nuts, baby carrots, yogurt and a hardboiled egg (or two).

     

    13. Brush Your Teeth After Dinner

    Although I'm not aware of any studies on this, many people recommend brushing your teeth and/or flossing right after dinner. Then you won't be as tempted to have a late-night snack.

     

    14. Eat Spicy Foods

    Spicy foods like Cayenne pepper contain Capsaicin, a compound that can boost metabolism and reduce your appetite slightly (30, 31).

     

    15. Do Aerobic Exercise

    Doing aerobic exercise (cardio) is an excellent way to burn calories and improve your physical and mental health.

    It appears to be particularly effective to lose belly fat, the unhealthy fat that tends to build up around your organs and cause metabolic disease (32, 33).

     

    16. Lift Weights

    One of the worst side effects of dieting, is that it tends to cause muscle loss and metabolic slowdown, often referred to as starvation mode (34, 35).

    The best way to prevent this from happening is to do some sort of resistance exercise, like lifting weights. Studies show that weight lifting can help keep your metabolism high, and prevent you from losing precious muscle mass (36, 37).

    Of course, it's not just important to lose fat. You also want to make sure that what is beneath looks good. Doing some sort of resistance exercise is critical for that.

     

    17. Eat More Fiber

    Fiber is often recommended for the purpose of weight loss. Although the evidence is mixed, some studies show that fiber (especially viscous fiber) can increase satiety and help you control your weight over the long term (38, 39).

     

    18. Eat More Vegetables and Fruits

    Vegetables and fruits have several properties that make them effective for weight loss.

    They contain few calories, but a lot of fiber. They are also rich in water, which gives them a low energy density. They also take a while to chew, and are very filling.

    Studies show that people who eat vegetables and fruits tend to weigh less (40). These foods are also super healthy and nutritious, so eating them is important for all sorts of reasons.

     

    19. Chew More Slowly

    It can take a while for the brain to "register" that you've had enough to eat. Some studies show that chewing more slowly can help you eat fewer calories and increase the production of hormones linked to weight loss (41, 42).

     

    20. Get Good Sleep

    Sleep is highly underrated, but it may be just as important as eating healthy and exercising.

    Studies show that poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity, being linked to an 89% increased risk of obesity in children, and 55% in adults (43).

     

    21. Beat Your Food Addiction

    A recent 2014 study of 196,211 individuals found that 19.9% of people fulfil the criteria for food addiction (44).

    If you suffer from overpowering cravings and can't seem to get your eating under control no matter how hard you try, then you may be a food addict.

    In this case, get help. Trying to lose weight without dealing with this problem first is next to impossible.

     

    22. Eat More Protein

    Protein is the single most important nutrient when it comes to losing weight.

    Eating a high protein diet has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day, while helping you feel so satiated that you eat up to 441 fewer calories per day (45, 46, 47).

    One study also showed that protein at 25% of calories reduced obsessive thoughts about food by 60%, while cutting the desire for late night snacking in half (48).

    This is the single most important tip in the article.

    Simply adding protein to your diet (without restricting anything) is one of the easiest, most effective and most delicious ways to lose weight.

     

    23. Supplement With Whey Protein

    If you struggle to get enough protein in your diet, taking a supplement can help.

    One study showed that replacing part of your calories with whey protein can cause weight loss of about 8 pounds, while increasing lean muscle mass (49).

     

    24. Don't Drink Calories, Including Sugary Soda and Fruit Juices

    Sugar is bad, but sugar in liquid form is even worse (50). Studies show that liquid sugar calories may be the single most fattening aspect of the modern diet.

    For example, one study showed that sugar-sweetened beverages are linked to a 60% increased risk of obesity in children, for each daily serving (51).

    Keep in mind that this applies to fruit juice as well, which contains a similar amount of sugar as a soft drink like coke (52).

    Eat whole fruit, but use fruit juice with caution (or avoid it altogether).

     

    25. Eat Whole, Single Ingredient Foods (Real Food)

    If you want to be a leaner, healthier person, then one of the best things you can do for yourself is to eat whole, single ingredient foods.

    These foods are naturally filling, and it's very difficult to gain weight if the majority of your diet is based around them.

    Keep in mind that real food doesn't need a long list of ingredients, because real food IS the ingredient.

    Here is a list of the 20 most weight loss-friendly foods on earth.

     

    26. Don't "Diet," Eat Healthy Instead

    One of the biggest problems with "diets," is that they almost never work in the long term.

    If anything, people who "diet" tend to gain more weight over time, and studies show that dieting is a consistent predictor of future weight gain (53).

    Instead of going on a diet, make it your goal to become a healthier, happier and fitter person. Focus on nourishing your body, instead of depriving it.
