Smartphone Apps For Diabetes: Do They Really Work? News

Many Apps Are Free, And Some Offer Both Paid And Free Versions.

 

 Sam Gandy, director of the Center for Cognitive Health at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, said, "It's a very interesting study. The most surprising thing is the fact that estrogen is so potent as a risk factor for dementia." Gandy said there has been a fair amount of research conducted over the past five years showing that higher estrogen levels prior to the age of dementia risk -- before age 65 -- reduces the risk for dementia. "But once they enter the age of risk for Alzheimer's, higher estrogen seems to make things worse and that seems to be borne out by this study," said Gandy, also the associate director of the Mount Sinai Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. It's referred to as the "critical window of estrogen therapy," said Carr. But this study suggests that once that "critical window" closes, a woman with elevated hormone levels may be at a higher risk for dementia, said Carr. "And it also suggests that the combination of diabetes and high estrogen has an even greater effect on dementia risk." Does the research suggest that older women who take hormone replacement therapy stop -- especially those with diabetes? Scarabin said the study is not a hormone study -- the women involved in the research were not taking estrogen -- and the results do not suggest women who take estrogen go off of their medication. Gandy said, "Before we make recommendations, we need to do clinical trials. We'd need to see if women on estrogen at age 'X' versus a same-age placebo group who did not get estrogen had the same effect." Scarabin added that women with both diabetes and elevated estrogen levels would be a good "target for future prevention studies."

But Some Companies Are Cutting Workers To 29 Or Fewer Hours Ahead Of The Mandate.

 


 Applications -- or "apps" -- can help you with nutrition advice, carb counting, tracking blood sugar levels, medication alerts and managing kids with diabetes. Many apps are free, and some offer both paid and free versions. Paid options may offer more bells and whistles, but you might find what you need in a free app. The big question is: Can these apps help make diabetes management easier? That depends largely on whom you ask.

Businesses Urge Change to Obamacare's Insurance Mandate news



 Their testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee came just hours before President Barack Obama's State of the Union address in which he called on Congress to restore unemployment insurance for 1.6 million Americans whose benefits have expired and to raise the federal minimum wage. The employer responsibility provision, also known as the employer mandate, was scheduled to take effect this year, but last July the Obama administration postponed enforcement of the requirement until 2015. The 30-hour rule was meant to close the insurance gap for people who don't already qualify for job-based health insurance. But some companies are cutting workers to 29 or fewer hours ahead of the mandate. Nearly one-third of franchises and 12 percent of non-franchise businesses have already reduced worker hours, according to an International Franchise Association/U.S.
