Alzheimers Tracking Device
Any doctors out there who have tried sleep/activity/etc. Tracking devices and services (e.G., jawbone's up, fitbit, nike+ fuelband)? Thoughts?
I use fitbit: I've been using fitbit daily for over 2 years. During the day it shows my activity patterns, and allows me to use that feedback to modify the behavior. For example if I have not met my step goal by dinner time a postrprandial walk becomes more attractive. At night, the fitbit can provide useful information regarding quality of sleep. The web software allows for tracking of calorie intake andweight. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No: You do not need mobile apps as long as you have regular intercourse. You normally ovulate 2 weeks prior to expected menses. Around that time the cervical mucous becomes stretchy, your temperature rises and some women may feel cramping on either side of their low pelvis.

Pretty good: however, it is mostly just a gimmick. There's no rocket science to measuring your pulse. You can either use the radial artery on your wrist (on the thumb side) or your carotid artery on your neck (just in front of the muscle group on your neck) and then count the pulses over 15 seconds, multiply by 4 and that's your heart rate in beats per second. This will save battery time on your smartphone! ...Read more

What evidence supports the use of bone stimulation dev. For delayed union fracture? My friend's 'expert' ortho [austrian] claims they are useless.
Will "close work" (e.g., computer at work, reading, etc) be impactful to peripheral lattice retinal degeneration? Or only for myopia progression?
Not likely: There are some animal studies that suggest that intense near work in children could enhance myopia. I don't believe that mechanism is still at play by age 41. There should be no impact on lattice degeneration from computer work or reading. Lattice degeneration per se does not progress. What changes in the eye is the state of the vitreous gel and its relationship to the lattice. ...Read more
