Sciatic?what? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  Are you experiencing pain through the buttock and down the leg?  If so, you may be experiencing sciatica.  Around 40% of the population will or has suffered from sciatica at least once.  The Sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and runs from your lower back, through the buttock, and down the leg.  Often times sciatica is not just a diagnosis, but a symptom of something more serious.  Herniated disks are the most common cause.  When the sciatic nerve is pinched, it can cause shooting pain and numbness down the leg.  It is important to remember that numbness and tingling can be a sign of something else so it is important to talk to your doctor if you are experiencing symptoms of sciatica.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

#938 Green Tea Lowers Risk of Atherosclerosis

Posted on: Mon, Jun 18, 2018, at 5:06 am

Are you a big tea drinker?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  If you aren’t a fan of green tea, this study may change your mind.  All teas -black, green, and white- have a chemical called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG for short).  Although it is found in all teas, it is the most prevalent in green tea.   Research out of Lancaster University and the University of Leeds found a link between EGCG and lowered risk of Atherosclerosis.  Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque in the arteries.  So, that cup of green tea could actually be helping your heart.  It is also believed that EGCG can lower risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, but more studies need to be completed.  If you aren’t a fan of green tea by itself, try adding a little honey to cut the bitterness.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.

#935 Drinking Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

Posted on: Thu, Jun 14, 2018, at 5:03 am

Are you a drinker?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute. A study published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation has linked heavy and binge drinking to Alzheimer’s Disease.  Although multiple studies have been completed in the past, new research has been able to address how alcohol is affecting the brain itself.  Scientists at University of Illinois at Chicago found that heavy drinking destroys protective mechanisms on the brain.  The mechanisms are in charge of protecting the brain from outside damage.  This degradation leads to inflammation of the brain.  The inflammation leads to a pile up of a protein called amyloid beta.  This protein is responsible for creating obstructive clusters that lead to Alzheimer’s Disease.  Talk to your doctor if you think you may have a drinking problem.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
