Reader’s Digest, 10 Reasons You’re Better Off with a Pedometer Than That Fancy Fitness Tracker by Kim Fredericks — If your fitness tracker regularly underestimates energy expenditure you might end up feeling frustrated that you are not burning a lot of calories after a hard workout and this can make it difficult to reach your goals.

There's an app for that — Roughly half of all adults suffer from at least one chronic disease, and those conditions account for 70 percent of all U.S. deaths and 86 percent of all U.S. health care costs. New studies have shown that the technologies of digital medicine—particularly smartphone apps—can reduce costs and improve outcomes in patients with chronic conditions by assisting them in day-to-day disease management. But as Amir Lerman, an interventional cardiologist and professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said, "You can't just build an app in your garage and think it is going to change medical care. You need to have a treatment plan behind it, and a health system to care for the patient."

GoMN, We asked a Mayo Clinic doctor why you feel drunker on a boat by Melissa Turtinen — We asked Dr. Jeahan Collettie, an emergency medicine expert at the Mayo Clinic, for her expert opinion. Here’s an abridged version of what she emailed us. Why does motion on a boat make people feel drunker than if they are on land? “The rocking motion of a boat slows down brain wave activity, causing a person to feel more sleepy or fatigued. It has a similar effect to rocking a baby to sleep. Motion can also cause a person to become dizzy or disoriented due to problems with the balance (or vestibular) system of the body, which is adjusted to being on still land and has difficulty quickly adjusting to unanticipated movement. This sleepy and dizzy feeling will cause a person to feel more drunk than on land,” Collettie wrote.

The chance to play golf at Pebble Beach was arranged by the Round of a Lifetime Foundation, and it came with instructions to savor every moment… Jackson heard about the opportunity from a pediatric cardiologist at Mayo Clinic who was aware of his medical history and his love of golf. “I don’t remember when I haven’t played golf,” said Jackson, who said his first clubs were plastic models when he was just 3 years old.

Khaleej Times, U.S. and UAE face common healthcare challenges by Deepa Narwani — Dr. James Levine, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, U.S., told Khaleej Times: "In the UAE, one in five people has type II diabetes. This is because obesity has swept through the adult population, and now children. The startling high rate of obesity-related type II diabetes has implications for the health of the nation, because it is associated with cardiovascular disease and cancer. Of even greater concern, however, is the fact that the rates of diabetes and high blood pressure are not levelling off in the UAE; the crisis is growing. The health consequences associated with diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and obesity are likely to continue to grow unless urgent action is taken. The UAE and the U.S. are on similar trajectories in this regard."
