Its like youre Photoshopped. Well, guess what, girls: You dont live in Photoshop (and no one expects you to). And contrary to what most magazine covers would have you believe, neither does anyone else. We know youre surrounded every day by images and articles about celebrity moms whose babyweight magically melted away in what seems like days, but lets tune back into the real world, ladies. It takes time to take off what youve put on. Most doctors agree that it takes at least a year for moms to reach their pre-pregnancy weight after a baby is born. Maybe youll be or are ahead of the curve, but chances are, youre not. Many moms are still battling that extra weight well after a year, and why not? Having a new baby is stressful, exhausting, and time consum ing, and sneaking in a workout on a babys schedule isnt always easy. So, whats a girl to do? 1. Take a breath. Rome wasnt built in a day, as they say, and your post-pregnancy body wont be either. Give yourself a break, have reasonable expectations, and make a plan. 2. Start small. As soon as youre able to start exercising a bit, get moving. You wont be able to jump right into Boot Camp six weeks post-partum, but as early as possible, work in a walk. Go it alone or strap the baby into a stroller appropriate for his/her age and get to stepping. As days progress, go farther and/or faster, but remember: safety first. Jos tling an infant over rocks in a stroller while you sprint is a no-no. 3. Slow and steady wins the race. Fables arent fairy tales; theyre stories meant to instruct and teach, so take a lesson from our friend, the turtle, and take your time. More than likely, no ones waiting for you to get your six-pack back so you can pose for the cover of Cosmo. Youll get there, but to get there in the best and healthiest way, you have to build up to it. Today, a leisurely walk; next week, a brisk stroller jaunt; and youre off! Your body is healing; let it heal and help it strengthen with regular exercise that pushes you a bit more each week. 4. Eat right. All the stroller walks, boot camps and personal training in the world cant fix a broken diet. If youre breastfeeding, healthy eating is a must; but even if youre not, do yourself a favor and let this time in your life motivate you to make the changes that are needed in the way you eat. Add more fresh, whole foods to your diet, snack on fruits and vegetables rather than Oreos and crackers. Put the Diet Coke down and rehydrate with some nice, cold water. Diet and exercise go hand in hand when youre looking to lose weight the right way (and keep it off). 5. Safety (and power) in numbers. Find more moms like you. Theyre everywhere! You could probably throw a rock in your neighborhood and hit five! Find them and band together. Go running together, walking, take stroller classes, and when youre ready, other fitness training classes. Find a personal trainer to work with you as a group. Together we stand, divided we fall, right? 6. Kick the stress to the curb, as much as possible. Having a new baby is stressful theres no way around that but beating yourself up about your weight isnt helping. Did you know that stress causes your body to release cortisol and adrenaline (to help you fight or flee), but when this stress is frequent and emotional (like after having a baby), these hormones can build up in the bloodstream and cause fatigue, listlessness, irritability and weight retention or gain? Whats worse? Cortisol can make you crave fatty, sweet, salty, crunchy foods; you know, the ones youre supposed to be staying away from. Do yourself a favor and take a break. We know, we know, theres just no time, right? But even five minutes with a book or in a quiet room, sitting still and breath ing, will help. Exercise has been proven to relieve stress as well, so take a walk and kill two birds with one stone! That baby weight doesnt have to be a permanent part of the new you. Youve got this. Really, you do! But do it right, do it healthy. Come see us. Well find someone great to work with you, set some weight loss and fitness goals, plan a diet that you can live with, and maybe even set you up with some friends that are in the same boat with you.

Inc. Tracking the state of seniors Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights Reserved How Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

Its like youre Photoshopped. Well, guess what, girls: You dont live in Photoshop (and no one expects you to). And contrary to what most magazine covers would have you believe, neither does anyone else. We know youre surrounded every day by images and articles about celebrity moms whose babyweight magically melted away in what seems like days, but lets tune back into the real world, ladies. It takes time to take off what youve put on. Most doctors agree that it takes at least a year for moms to reach their pre-pregnancy weight after a baby is born. Maybe youll be or are ahead of the curve, but chances are, youre not. Many moms are still battling that extra weight well after a year, and why not? Having a new baby is stressful, exhausting, and time consum ing, and sneaking in a workout on a babys schedule isnt always easy. So, whats a girl to do? 1. Take a breath. Rome wasnt built in a day, as they say, and your post-pregnancy body wont be either. Give yourself a break, have reasonable expectations, and make a plan. 2. Start small. As soon as youre able to start exercising a bit, get moving. You wont be able to jump right into Boot Camp six weeks post-partum, but as early as possible, work in a walk. Go it alone or strap the baby into a stroller appropriate for his/her age and get to stepping. As days progress, go farther and/or faster, but remember: safety first. Jos tling an infant over rocks in a stroller while you sprint is a no-no. 3. Slow and steady wins the race. Fables arent fairy tales; theyre stories meant to instruct and teach, so take a lesson from our friend, the turtle, and take your time. More than likely, no ones waiting for you to get your six-pack back so you can pose for the cover of Cosmo. Youll get there, but to get there in the best and healthiest way, you have to build up to it. Today, a leisurely walk; next week, a brisk stroller jaunt; and youre off! Your body is healing; let it heal and help it strengthen with regular exercise that pushes you a bit more each week. 4. Eat right. All the stroller walks, boot camps and personal training in the world cant fix a broken diet. If youre breastfeeding, healthy eating is a must; but even if youre not, do yourself a favor and let this time in your life motivate you to make the changes that are needed in the way you eat. Add more fresh, whole foods to your diet, snack on fruits and vegetables rather than Oreos and crackers. Put the Diet Coke down and rehydrate with some nice, cold water. Diet and exercise go hand in hand when youre looking to lose weight the right way (and keep it off). 5. Safety (and power) in numbers. Find more moms like you. Theyre everywhere! You could probably throw a rock in your neighborhood and hit five! Find them and band together. Go running together, walking, take stroller classes, and when youre ready, other fitness training classes. Find a personal trainer to work with you as a group. Together we stand, divided we fall, right? 6. Kick the stress to the curb, as much as possible. Having a new baby is stressful theres no way around that but beating yourself up about your weight isnt helping. Did you know that stress causes your body to release cortisol and adrenaline (to help you fight or flee), but when this stress is frequent and emotional (like after having a baby), these hormones can build up in the bloodstream and cause fatigue, listlessness, irritability and weight retention or gain? Whats worse? Cortisol can make you crave fatty, sweet, salty, crunchy foods; you know, the ones youre supposed to be staying away from. Do yourself a favor and take a break. We know, we know, theres just no time, right? But even five minutes with a book or in a quiet room, sitting still and breath ing, will help. Exercise has been proven to relieve stress as well, so take a walk and kill two birds with one stone! That baby weight doesnt have to be a permanent part of the new you. Youve got this. Really, you do! But do it right, do it healthy. Come see us. Well find someone great to work with you, set some weight loss and fitness goals, plan a diet that you can live with, and maybe even set you up with some friends that are in the same boat with you.

Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights Reserved How Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.
