Discusses Women's Health

I know I haven’t written my website for several weeks.  Frankly, I’ve been so depressed over the political situation that I’ve been experiencing writer’s block.  I’ve also felt that medical research publications is not foremost on most of our minds – it certainly has not been on mine.  But on this rainy day, while house…

Once more I am traveling and I dutifully brought vitamins with me.  (More about where I am and what I’m doing, below…)  I have been unable to find where I packed them for the last four days, but my concern has been lessened by the fact that I’m eating well and just read an editorial…

I just returned from some terrific travel. I was in Italy and Tel Aviv (fun and family) and a week later, I flew to New York. This last trip was for the Save the Children gala. Once more we celebrated and honored those who helped the organization save newborn lives, provide prenatal to mothers and…

I have just returned from my trip to Italy and Israel. In both countries I saw young people smoking, but the prevalence seemed less than that which I’ve noted in the past. (Clearly an observation which I cannot proffer as a scientific fact.) What I did not observe was the use of electronic cigarettes. I…

I’m going to the land of milk, honey and yogurt.  I’ll be in Tel Aviv for the next few weeks.  So I felt it was quite timely that I happened to come across an article posted on the internet site Medscape from the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research 2016 Annual Meeting.  (The meeting…

I wore a Fitbit for a year but eventually decided that I preferred having just one strap around my wrist (my analog watch) and took it off. I then used the health app on my iPhone to see how many steps I took when I walked the dog and went through my daily activities. It…

Last week the media covered the news that the sugar industry had attempted to influence (and even dictate) early medical reviews on the impact of sugar on coronary vascular disease (CHD). As usual with most news reports, the catchy headline got our attention. (Well it did for some of us, but this week Hillary’s pneumonia…

The Supreme Court has struck down a law closing abortion clinics in Texas. This has major implications for abortion rights throughout the country and was discussed last week in viewpoint sections of both the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA. “Whole Woman’s Health v Hellerstedt” will significantly expand women’s access to abortions. “Whole Women’s…

August 31 marks the end of my office practice. Over the past decades (for many more than three!), I was able to help my patients conceive, or provide contraception so they would not, deliver their babies, treat infections, detect cancer, perform surgeries, treat hormonal symptoms from peri-menopause to menopause, diagnose health conditions and I hope,…

I’ll send a personal message next week when I finish seeing patients and close my practice. This week I want to write (albeit late) my usual medical newsletter on a subject that I’ve covered many times: cancer risk from obesity. That risk has just been re-iterated in a special report published in the New England…
