Protect your Heart Now!

World Heart Day – PRESS RELEASE

 

Protect your Heart Now!

 

Modern cardiology and cardiac surgery have considerably progressed in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Unfortunately, statistics show, that this remains the first cause of death in the Western world where 1 heart attack occurs every 4-5 seconds.

In Greece 20.000 myocardial heart attacks occur per year of which 1 in 4 do not make it to the hospital. What are we missing and what are we doing wrong?

Prevention is the answer and this should be our motto for today’s World Heart Day.

Cardiovascular disease does not just happen.

It builds up through the years from risk factors that we often overlook or don’t recognize. Smoking, high blood pressure, lack of exercise, high cholesterol and diabetes are vital. These symptoms take effect gradually and are often detected after the first cardiovascular incident. 

Measures of prevention:              

  • Quit smoking. Smokers actually  live 13-14 years less than the non-smokers.              
  • Mobilize yourself – get up from your chair. 60 minutes of intense physical exercise per week, reduces incidents of cardiovascular disease by 30%.·
  • Control your weight.              
  • Regulate your blood pressure.
  • Keep on normal levels your cholesterol and diabetes with the guidance of your doctor.

Even if we believe we are in a low-risk factor group for cardiovascular disease, the best prevention is visiting a Specialized Cardiologist.

Weight loss: Is there a magic solution for it?

Magic diet Pills - Weight loss: Is there a magic solution for it?
Nutrition Department of Mediterraneo Hospital

In the recent years, nutrition has been increasingly drawing scientific interest. Admittedly, should one enter a popular internet search engine, the terms “diet”, “weight loss” etc. will generate thousands of results. However, some of these results may not be scientifically documented and they may be associated with various health risks.

Undoubtedly, the ways to lose weight, providing fast and spectacular results, always draw people’s attention. Within that frame, “magic” pills and “forbidden” foods have emerged, being presented as the only solution for the treatment of overweight and obesity. But where does the truth lie?
As far as the ”forbidden” foods are concerned, food intolerance tests have been recently available, indicating which foods are fattening or block one’s metabolism. Afterwards, it is recommended that the person should remove these foods from his daily diet for a short or a long period of time. There is no documented scientific study available, showing that there are foods affecting metabolism or being associated with weight loss or weight gain respectively. Weight loss and weight gain are solely due to the energy balance, namely the relationship between “energy in” (food calories taken into the body through food and drink) and “energy out” (calories being used in the body for our daily energy requirements and physical activities). Intolerance is a condition in which the body is unable to digest one or several food components, causing various symptoms, that are not associated with weight gain. The two most frequently occurring kinds of intolerance is gluten intolerence (celiac disease) and lactose intolerance, being both diagnosed with specialized tests that are not carried out at fitness centers or private practice.

Many people have been subjected to these tests and seem to have lost weight, which is absolutely reasonable, since they exclude foods from their diet, meaning that they consequently reduce their caloric intake. Unfortunately, when the exclusion of some food groups from one’s diet lasts for a long period of time, it can cause significant deficiencies in nutrients, being essential for the proper body function.
According to the Hellenic Dietetic Association, no intolerence test is an effective way to reduce body weight.

Apart from intolerance tests, numerous dietary supplements are also available, promising big weight loss, mainly by reducing appetite or by causing malabsorption of ceratin nutrients, such as fat. Most of them have been studied in the literature. The majority of studies conclude that there are insufficient data supporting their success in weight loss and further investigation is needed. Their results are short-term, and it is not clear if some of them are associated with adverse effects on health.

To sum up, nothing can substitute a balanced diet. There are not good and bad foods or magic ways to lose weight. A variety of foods should be consumed along with moderate levels of physical activity, which not only ensure a healthy weight and fat mass loss, but also a successful weight maintenance or loss.

 

World Osteoporosis Day

By PRESS RELEASES

Press Release, 20/10/2016

 

osteoporosis - World Osteoporosis Day

Osteoporosis is one of many medical issues in the recent years that concern the whole civilized world. It is defined as the decrease of the bone mineral density that affects the structure of the bone and increases the risk of spontaneous fracture. Osteopenia is the asymptomatic condition where there are no fractures involved.

It is known that at least 33% of women will suffer of low bone density mineral after the age of 48 due to menopause, while 20% of men will  sustain one or more fractures after the age of 50 due to poor bone quality.

Major risk factors to develop osteoporosis are considered family history, small body frame, unbalanced diet with low amount of calcium and vitamin D, excessive alcohol and cigarette smoking use, high caffeine intake, inactive lifestyle, hormone imbalances due to thyroid or menstruation problems, long term therapy with glucocorticoids, anticoagulants, anti-seizure medications, contraceptives, anti-inflammatories, antineoplastic and PPI medications.

Awareness and prevention is the best strategy against osteoporosis. Although some risk factors cannot be changed there are several that can be reduced or even eliminated in order to prevent osteoporosis. Adequate calcium and vitamin D intake, proper exercising and specific anti-osteoporotic medications can increase the bone quality. Osteopenia can and must be treated before it is developed to osteoporosis.

Early diagnosis along with proper treatment by a Specialized Physician can contribute to a controlled progress of the disease without complications.

The Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease Department of Mediterraneo Hospital, under the supervision of Dr. Constantinos Tsevdos M.D., M.Sc., provide the latest knowledge and techniques regarding prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis as well as other metabolic bone diseases.
