Banish Urinary Incontinence #5131

Most women can end bladder leakage with consistent use of Kegel exercises. To learn how to perform a Kegel exercise, go to the restroom, sit down, start a stream of urine, then stop the stream. The muscle you use to stop the stream can be exercised to control bladder leakage. Most women do well if they can perform 100 per day.

The skinny on shin splints #5501

You’ve just started running again, only to feel that familiar pain along your shinbones – shin splints. The pain of shin splints occurs when tiny fibers that attach your calf muscles to your shinbones become irritated and inflamed. One common cause is exercising too hard, especially during high-impact activities. Worn-out footwear or flat arches in your feet also can lead to shin splints.
Most of the time, you can treat shin splints with rest and self-care measures. Avoid high-impact activities for several days to two weeks, depending on your pain level. For at least several days, apply an ice pack to the area for 15 minute periods. Over the counter drugs such as Advil, Motrin, Tylenol may help relieve pain.
To help prevent shin splints:
• Stretch before and especially after running to loosen the muscles in your legs and feet.
• Wear good quality shoes and use shoe inserts if your have flat feet.
• Do ankle strengthening exercises to help your ankle muscles better withstand high-impact activities.
• Consider switching to activities that put less impact on your shins, such as swimming, brisk walking or bicycling.
See your doctor if your pain persists even after resting your legs or if you believe your recovery is too slow.

Check your chewing-gum label #5570

Chewing too much sugar-free gum containing the artificial sweetener sorbitol can cause diarrhea leading to potentially dangerous weight loss said, Dr. Herbert Lochs, professor of I.M. at Humboldt University in Berlin in a shared repot.
Fortunately, sorbitol is used much less frequently in U.S. chewing gum. The preferred artificial sweetener in the U.S. is aspartame, said Dr. Bret Lashner, a gastroenterologist, in Cleveland.
