Hyperthyroidism-What You Need to Know

According to our research at the National Metabolic and Longevity Research Center, a healthy thyroid produces hormones that control a person’s metabolic rate. In essence, the thyroid acts as the body’s gas pedal. An overactive or hyperthyroid causes the body’s systems to run too hot and too fast. An under-active or hypothyroid causes the body’s systems to run too cold and too slow. The effects of low thyroid and low body temperature can be devastating because for every one degree decrease in body temperature the base metabolic rate decreases by approximately 6%.

It is not uncommon for a person to have an average temperature that is two to four degrees below normal, this correlates to a 12%-24% reduction in overall metabolism. No wonder these people feel tired and depressed and are consistently challenged with their weight.

Hypothyroidism is a common health condition affecting millions of men and women (more women than men)that is frequently overlooked in our health care system. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) estimates that 10% of Americans – more than the number of Americans with diabetes and cancer combined – suffer from thyroid disease.

The bottom line is that millions of Americans are hypothyroid, many hypothyroid patients receive inadequate treatment, and millions more are hypothyroid and may never even know.

Fatigue is one of the most common reasons for visits to primary care doctors, but the risk factors of having a poorly active thyroid are varied, and include: auto immune disease, post-partum depression, infertility, multiple miscarriages, pms (the previous 5 are specific to women only), weakness, problems with skin or hair, lethargy, sensation of cold, impaired memory or mood, constipation, weight gain or loss, muscle/joint pain, emotional instability, swelling around eyes, face or legs, nervousness, depression, heart palpitations, fullness in the throat area or difficulty swallowing, and much more.

Right Choice of Dining Room Tables

Dining room tables are the most important part of your dining. Your dining space is definitely one of the primary units of your house as that is the place where you have your meals. Therefore the dining room should be decorated in such a way that would make people enjoy their meals all the most.To make your dining area beautiful you will definitely have to choose your furniture carefully. A good choice can completely change the look of your dining space. This can be the other way round as well; a bad choice of can make your dining disastrous.

Therefore before buying a table for your dining you must judge certain important aspects regarding your dining room. There is no point in buying a large table for a small dining space. This will make the room look very clumsy and tacky. A good set can look horrendous if the space does not complement it. Thus it is better to buy a small table rather than a bulky one if you have less space. Then there is the aspect of the design that is done on the dining table. Too much of heavy designing can also make your furniture look tacky.If your house is not that big then you must go for a smaller choice with minimum designs. Simplicity should be the key. Heavy designing can still look good if your dining room is very spacious. Then there is also the aspect of the material. For small dining areas glass tables can be a good option. Glass top is any day better than other showy materials like marble and also can make your small space look spacious. Glass top tables can be a little expensive, but they definitely look very class and sophisticated.For small spaces the natural colour of glass can look good. However those who have a big dining space can go for other color such as green, but be aware; if you get a glass dining room table, you must remember that you will have to take a lot of care regarding its maintenance.

Dining room table furniture mainly consists of the dining chairs. They play an equally crucial role for your dining and are definitely incomplete without them. If you buy the table and the chairs separately then you can save a lot of money. But you must make sure that the chairs are in perfect tandem with your dining table.

Infertility Treatment Options For Women Over 40

Getting pregnant when you are over 40 years of age poses more health risks than when you are in your 20s. Aside from the potential health risks, women in their 40s should be aware that according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the chances of a woman conceiving dramatically decrease every year after the age of 30. This does not mean a woman cannot have a baby as thousands do every year over the age of 40. What it does mean is that a woman in her 40s may need the assistance of fertility treatments to become pregnant.

Besides fertility drugs like clomiphene, there are two broad categories of fertility treatments. One is intrauterine insemination (IUI) and the other is assisted reproductive technology (ART). IUI, or “artificial insemination” as it is commonly called, is a procedure where a woman is injected with sperm that is prepared in a certain way to make them more viable. A woman may be asked to take fertility drugs prior to the IUI procedure to make certain that she has ovulated. The HHS cites three common reasons when IUI is used:

1. Mild causes of male infertility

2. For women who have problems with their cervical mucus

3. Couples with unexplained fertility problems

Assisted reproductive technology is a general term for several procedures to help infertile women and couples. In essence, eggs are removed from the woman’s body ad these eggs are mixed with sperm to create embryos. The embryos are then placed back into the woman’s body in the hopes that at lease one embryo will implant itself to the uterus.

If you decide that ART is the best treatment option for infertility, do not pin all your hopes on it. There are many factors that effect the success rate of ART. The Office on Women’s Health list several reasons behind the success or failure of ART:

1. Age of the partners

2. Infertility causes

3. The fertility clinic

4. The type of ART used

5. If fresh or frozen eggs were used

6. If the embryo is fresh or frozen
