Health Few young women are tested for the sexually transmitted infections that cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a condition that can severely damage reproductive organs, according to a new study. Across 48 pediatric hospitals and more than 10,000 PID patients ages 12 to 21, only 22 percent of young women were tested for HIV, and 27 percent were screened for syphilis. Only 18 percent were tested for both, researchers found in a study published Tuesday in the journal Pediatrics, suggesting that STI testing is insufficient and delays necessary treatment. PID occurs when untreated sexually transmitted infections like HIV and syphilis infiltrate a woman’s reproductive organs, and it can result in infertility and ectopic pregnancy. Of the 2.5 million reported PID cases, more than 20 percent occurred in young women, lead author Dr. Monika Goyal said, likely tied to the high prevalence of STIs among young people ages 15 to 24. Doctors were more likely to screen younger, … [Read more...] about Doctors Rarely Screen Young Women With Pelvic Inflammatory Disease for HIV or Syphilis, Study Says

Is your fridge smelling bad? Did your drain get clogged? Do your shoes need freshening up? Baking soda has a lot of tricks up its sleeve, but one of the best ones doesn’t usually feature in lists of household tips. New research published in the Journal of Immunology has found that baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, can fight inflammation and autoimmune disease at the cellular level. It does this by turning your body into an anti-inflammatory environment. One way it accomplishes this is by influencing the cells in the spleen to stop the inappropriate immune response that is involved … [Read more...] about Surprising new research concludes that baking soda can prevent autoimmune disease on a cellular level

In the study, it was found that inflammatory reactions can alter the brain’s immune cells in the long term, which means that these cells have an “immunological memory.” This memory may affect the development of neurological disorders that occur over time. It is, therefore, a previously unknown factor that could affect the severity of these diseases. A team of researchers at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH), and the University of Tuebingen wanted to find out whether environmental factors change microglia, the immune … [Read more...] about Inflammatory disease can cause your brain to change, making you more vulnerable to other illnesses
Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds leads what most people consider a dream life: He's a rock star with a happy family and a Grammy under his belt. But what most fans might not know is that Reynolds has ankylosing spondylitis, an inflammatory disease that once caused the singer crippling amounts of pain. Reynolds is partnering with the Spondylitis Association of America and pharmaceutical company Novartis to speak about life with A.S. Q: What was your inspiration for "Next to Me"? A: It's a very personal song and the music video was definitely one of the most intense shoots I've ever done. It really pushed me to a different place, but I'm grateful for that. I love the song; it has a lot of meaning and I hope people like it. There's a lot of emotional weight to the video and I had to go to a really raw place to shoot it and the director really pushed us and put me in an uncomfortable place for a lot of it, which I'm grateful for. Q: You live with A.S. and you're a working … [Read more...] about Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds on living with inflammatory disease A.S.
