Coping with Kidney Disease
MacKenzie Walser
0471274232
Jan 2004
Paperback
·
 
Review
Drawing on his work treating hundreds of adult kidney disease patients at his institution's Clinical Research Center, Walser (pharmacology & medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine) aims to assist readers in understanding kidney failure, a condition that can be caused by diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Many of his points--e.g., how to recognize the early warning signs, get a correct diagnosis, and evaluate treatment options-are illustrated by the stories of real patients. Walser also presents a low protein diet as the center of his J 2-step treatment to help kidney disease patients avoid dialysis. Despite the use of patient stories and sample menus for the low protein diet, this book will not suit consumers owing to the prevalent medical jargon. The National Kidney Foundation offers more accessible and useful...

What to Do when the Doctor Says it's PCOS
Milton Hammerly
1592330045
April 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the number one cause of irregular periods and infertility in women. It affects 10% of women worldwide. PCOS is a condition of overproduction of androgens by the ovaries. In essence, the ovaries produce too much testosterone, causing abnormal hair growth, irregular or absent menstruation/ovulation, acne, and small benign cysts on the ovaries. If left undetected, PCOS can lead to cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. While researchers haven’t determined the cause of PCOS, they know it is linked to insulin resistance, which causes obesity. That’s where this book comes in. Insulin resistance can be controlled with a low-carb diet fairly easily. What to Do When the Doctor Says It’s PCOS gives sufferers a diet and nutritional treatment program that goes beyond the...


The Prostate
Patrick C. Walsh

Jan 1997
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
"Every three minutes, a new case of prostate cancer is diagnosed in the United States. Every 15 minutes, a man dies from it." Thus, the message of this book that "most prostate trouble can be prevented?and, if caught early enough, all prostate problems can be cured, even cancer"?is good news indeed. State-of-the-art medical knowledge is provided by Johns Hopkins Urologist-in-Chief Walsh, clearly written by science writer Worthington, and informatively illustrated by Leon Schlossberg. The authors acknowledge that "medical care in this country is uneven," so their goal is "for you to come away from this book informed, prepared and able to discuss your situation intelligently with your doctor." This comprehensive reference on the prostate and its disorders complements?and surpasses?Sylvan Meyer and Seymour C. Nash's...

Paperback

From Library Journal
Also called myomas, fibromyomas, or leiomyomas, fibroids develop from a single smooth muscle cell in the uterus and vary in size and shape. They affect as many as 80 percent of women, of whom one in four will have symptoms serious enough to cause her to seek medical advice and treatment. These two practical, easy-to-read guides offer information on the different types of fibroids and the options for treating them. In Healing Fibroids, Warshowsky, a practicing obstetrician/ gynecologist and director of the Women's Program at Beth Israel Hospital's Center for Health and Healing in New York, and Oumano, a certified yoga teacher and bodywork practitioner, combine Western medicine and holistic methods to point the way to optimal health and the avoidance of surgery.

The Patient's Encyclopedia of Urinary Tract Infection, Sexual Cystitis and Interstitial Cystitis
Angela Kilmartin
0954267702
January 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Classic urinary tract infection and inflammation has pain, frequency, bleeding, backache and /or fever in any order or combination. It is also known as cystitis. No figures are kept because it is so very common, but in the 25 years since Angela introduced self-help and prevention, attacks in the UK have dropped by 50% from their high in 1971 when they were over 25 million a year. The medical profession generally has not changed its treatments at all, still only offering antibiotics, poor quality urine sampling and futile trips to helpless urologists who may cause further procedural damage.

About the Author
Angela Kilmartin was born in Brentwood, Essex, UK as Angela Mendham. She attended the Ursuline Convent there and commenced work after leaving, in the world of fashion as an...


Pox: Genius, Madness, and the Mysteries of Syphilis
Deborah Hayden
0465028829
December 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Were Abraham and Mary Lincoln's well-known health problems symptoms of syphilis? Was Adolf Hitler's final descent into madness due to an early syphilitic infection acquired from a prostitute? Did James Joyce make hidden allusions to his own infection in works like Ulysses? According to Hayden, a California-based scholar and marketing executive, scholars and medical professionals have too often overlooked the evidence of "pox," or syphilis-often called the "Great Imitator" because its symptoms mimic those of many other diseases-in the biographies of historical figures. Few would argue that some of Hayden's subjects, like Flaubert and Karen Blixen (subject of the movie Out of Africa), suffered from the disease. Her arguments for others, like the Lincolns and Beethoven, are sure to provoke debate. Hayden pulls...

It's a Sistah Thing: A Guide to Understanding and Dealing with Fibroids for African American Women
Monique R. Brown
075820065X
September 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Even though this book deals with a common ailment (fibroids), it is unique because it specifically addresses African American women, who suffer from this condition three to nine times more often than women of other races. Written by an African American sufferer, this well-researched work pulls together an enormous amount of information on conventional and alternative therapies that will be useful to its readers. There are also checklists, questions to ask medical professionals, and exercises that solidify the information provided. The writing style intends to be friendly and welcoming, but at times it becomes too familiar and distracts the reader from the content of the book. Nonetheless, Brown's guide is informative, as it includes both a glossary and additional resources. While there are other titles on this...
