Wall Street Journal, They’re Committed to Each Other—And a 444-Mile Tandem Bike Ride by Jen Murphy — Katherine Zeratsky, a registered dietitian nutritionist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., says muscles run off carbs and fat, so in an endurance situation, fries and burger buns equal fast energy…Ms. Zeratsky says it’s important to remember that endurance training puts a lot of stress on the body. “An overall balanced diet of antioxidant- and nutrient-rich foods is essential to protect and repair your muscles,” she says.
Washington Post, I thought the rashes were insect bites. I actually had shingles, and it was horrible. by Christine Lehmann — …After a week on Valtrex, most of the liquid-filled blisters had scabbed over, which the nurse practitioner told me indicated that they were no longer infectious. Until that point, I avoided hugging people because the infection is spread through direct physical contact with blisters. Pritish Tosh, an infectious disease physician and researcher at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn, also suggests keeping the lesions covered in public, washing hands after changing the bandages or dressings, and not sharing towels. If you have children at home who have not had chickenpox or not been vaccinated, Tosh recommends talking to your pediatrician for guidance.
NBC News, Is your partner ruining your sleep? Here's how to fix it by Erin Delmore — 1. Their snoring keeps you up: Research shows that partners of people who snore or have sleep apnea are more likely to wake up during the night, and they’re twice as likely to report fatigue and daytime sleepiness, increased muscular-skeletal pain symptoms and increased marital dissatisfaction, according to Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, the co-director for the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Sleep Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota. “There’s very ample evidence that their sleep quality is very much affected,” he said.
Today.com, What is tick paralysis? Symptoms, treatment, prevention and more by A. Pawloski — Anyone can be affected, but doctors tend to see tick paralysis more often in children, especially girls whose long hair may conceal ticks hiding behind the ear or on the scalp, said Dr. Leslie Simon, chair of emergency medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and associate professor at the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine. “It’s absolutely amazing” that the little creatures can produce such a poison, Simon told TODAY. “It’s just incredibly powerful, but neurotoxins are like that. Sometimes, it takes just a tiny little dose to have huge effects on a patient.
Reuters, Disparities in access to best stroke treatment by Lisa Rapaport — Overall, only 8.4% of all stroke patients in the current study had a thrombectomy. But thrombectomy rates were 7% for black Hispanic patients compared with 9.8% for white patients. “This matters because acute stroke from large vessel occlusion (i.e. blockage of the large arteries supplying the brain) is the most devastating form of stroke if left untreated,” said senior study author Dr. Waleed Brinjikji, from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. “However, with prompt treatment, about 50% of patients are able to return to their normal life and normal daily activities,” Brinjikji said by email. “Without treatment, patients invariably suffer permanent disability or death.”
Reuters, Surgical training programs not supportive of new parents by Carolyn Crist — Nearly a third of residents said their spouse or partner is also a physician, which may further highlight concerns about parental leave in medicine, said Dr. Amy Oxentenko at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, who wasn’t involved in the study. “Training programs should review the resources they have for new parents, such as childcare resources, adequate lactation space, policies for time off for parental leave (including adoption) and breaks to pump if breastfeeding,” she said by email. “If trainees can see that an institution has put such resources in place, it helps overcome perceived barriers regarding lack of support.
Post-Bulletin, Mayo Clinic Minute: 3 health tips for heading back to school — Shopping for school supplies is often a regular ritual for many students. But parents also need to make sure that their children are healthy before the first school bell rings.
Post-Bulletin, Answer Man: Mayo's first African-American physician started nine years earlier than thought — Dear Answer Man: You might be wrong about the first African-American physician at Mayo Clinic. I worked with Dr. Frederick Boulware in 1970. He was a consultant in neurology and moved to Las Vegas shortly after, where he started a very successful practice. — Alert Reader with Good Memory…In this case, the column you are referencing was my masterpiece from Aug. 7. A reader had watched the Ken Burns Mayo Clinic documentary. It stated that Mayo Clinic hired its first African-American physician in 1979, but the Burns film didn't name the physician in question. I tracked down the name of Dr. Franklyn G. Prendergast, which Mayo had shared with the documentarian. After receiving your note, I had my minions reach out to Mayo Clinic to check out Dr. Boulware. You are absolutely correct that he worked at Mayo Clinic from July 1, 1970 to Dec. 22, 1971. Here's what Mayo Clinic's Ginger Plumbo had to say on the matter: "Even though this was short-term, he could be the first African-American physician at Mayo. Human Resources did not track this information nor was ethnicity listed on the application form, thus making it difficult to come up with the 'first,'" she wrote.
West Central Tribune, 'This isn't just a behavioral problem': Study challenges the story on overeating by Paul Scott — "I thought it was a great study," said Jocelyn Lebow, Ph.D., a psychologist who treats eating disorders at Mayo Clinic. "In this culture there's a pervasive belief people with obesity are that way because of some sort of personal failing, and that the rest of us are disciplined while they are gluttons who can't resist the same urges. "It gives us the green light to be shaming and critical of people who are in larger bodies. It also stops us from asking the right questions. We go down the road of trying the same interventions that we know don't work. We know 95-98 percent of diets fail and so we say, 'well you must not have done it well enough.' We're not researching the things that matter. There are other mechanisms at work. This isn't just a behavioral problem."
West Central Tribune, Lighting up could soon become gruesome: FDA releases proposed images for cigarette packaging by Paul Scott — Cigarette packaging may soon test the notion we are a society which cannot be shocked. In response to court orders issued last spring, the FDA on Thursday, Aug. 15, released 13 graphic images of tobacco-induced illness it proposes to require on all cigarette packaging and advertising beginning in March of 2020. The mandate would fulfill an obligation of the Tobacco Control Act of 2009, a requirement the FDA had not pursued following challenges in court by manufacturers of tobacco products who argued against graphic labeling. … "I think it's a good thing," says Dr. J. Taylor Hays, Director of the Nicotine Dependence Center at Mayo Clinic. Additional coverage: Southernminn.com
Med City Beat, Commuter buses get a designated hub downtown — Rochester City Lines no longer has to park its buses curbside. The company, which provides regional commuter transit, is now doing its pick-ups and drop-offs in a Mayo Clinic-owned parking lot just south of the Guggenheim Building. The change went into effect on Monday. Christian Holter, director of operations for Rochester City Lines, said the new transit area will provide consistency and reliability for its customers, especially as the city continues to reconfigure the roads that the bus line has typically relied on for curbside parking.
KTTC, Mayo Clinic staff and student artwork featured in new exhibit — A foundational part of Mayo Clinic is treating everyone in our diverse community with dignity and respect. Part of that mission is being reflected in a new exhibit at Mayo called “The People and Value of Mayo Clinic–A Mosaic”. More than 28 art pieces have been selected from a diverse pool of staff and students at Mayo. The exhibit allows them to express themselves creatively, and showcase their unique perspectives. “One of the wonderful things about this art exhibit is it showcases the depth of talent that we have artistically and in terms of all the skills we can provide to patients at Mayo Clinic,” said Mayo Education Administration Coordinator Sarah Mensink.

KTTC, Mayo Clinic receives visit from two congressmen by Beret Leone — It seems that all eyes turn to the med city when it comes to medical innovation. The fact that Mayo Clinic has been named the best hospital in the nation for the fourth year in a row, prompted a visit from two congressmen Monday. Representatives Jim Hagedorn and Steve Scalise – both Republicans – were in town to talk about medical innovation in Rochester. Hagedorn represents Minnesota’s First Congressional District, while Scalise the current House Republican Whip, serves Louisiana. The two congressmen had a chance to tour Mayo facilities and speak with surgeons. Additional coverage: FOX 47, KEYC Mankato
KARE 11, Mayo Clinic: CBD oils may be helpful, but more research is needed — Mayo Clinic Proceedings will publish a paper in September showing a growing body of pre-clinical and clinical evidence that CBD oils may be effective in treating conditions like chronic pain and opioid abuse. However, due to the lack of testing done on humans, Mayo Clinic researchers say more testing is needed before CBD oils are declared helpful and safe... "There are many intriguing findings in pre-clinical studies that suggest CBD and hemp oil have anti-inflammatory effects and may be helpful with improving sleep and anxiety," says Brent Bauer, M.D., an internist and director of research for the Mayo Clinic Integrative Medicine program. "But trials in humans are still limited, so it is too early to be definitive about efficacy and safety." Additional coverage: INVERSE, Health Europa
Star Tribune, Rare Tucker automobile will be auctioned for Mayo Clinic cancer research by John Reinan — One of the great “what-ifs” for automobile historians is the fate of the Tucker. Brash businessman Preston Tucker saw a chance to jump into the auto business after World War II. He designed a striking car that was quite different from what other American automakers were turning out — with a rear engine, a third headlight and a “crash compartment” that he claimed would save lives…One of the Tucker cars will go on the auction block later Aug. 31, with the proceeds benefiting Mayo Clinic’s cancer research program.
Star Tribune, Regulators, lawmakers should act quickly after illnesses linked to vaping — The widespread use leads to this disturbing deduction about vaping-related illnesses. “This is just the beginning of adverse health reports,” said Dr. Richard Hurt, a retired Mayo Clinic tobacco addiction expert, in an interview with an editorial writer. Hurt also warned that there could be other damaging health effects that don’t show up for years or even decades.
KEYC Mankato, New cancer center in Fairmont by Alison Durheim — The brand new Lutz (lootz) Cancer Center at the Mayo Clinic in Fairmont opens its doors to patients. The $2 million project was underway for more than a year. The cancer center features additional stations for chemo patients, a designated room for bone marrow procedures, along with the scalp cooling caps that help prevent hair loss. “It was about a couple years back, two years back, and then when this was... initially the Lutz wing was closing down so when the Lutz wing was closing down so when the Lutz wing was closing down, they found that the space was quite there, they decision was made to move the center to this location,” says Dr. Amrit Singh.

Coeur d’Alene Press, Try these reminders for healthy air travel by Barbara Quinn — …As for alcohol, the “I’m on vacation, why not?” attitude can dehydrate us all the way down to our cells, says Clayton Cowl, a medical doctor and chairman of the Division of Preventive, Occupational, and Aerospace Medicine at the Mayo Clinic. If you can’t pass up a drink in-flight, treat yourself to 8 ounces of water for every alcoholic beverage you imbibe. That can at least help to counteract the dehydrating effect of the alcohol.

Healthline, How to Know if You're Over-Managing Your Diabetes by Ginger Vieira — The research estimates that about 20 percent of adults with diabetes in the United States are being overtreated — especially those with type 2 diabetes. This translates to approximately 2.3 million people being overtreated between 2011 and 2014, explained the study. “This isn’t break-through science,” Dr. Rozalina McCoy, an endocrinologist and primary care physician at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and a lead researcher on the study, told Healthline. “But it demonstrates the real human impact of overly intensive treatment in a patient with diabetes,” she explained.

Women’s Health, Does Taking Zinc Actually Do Anything To Help Kick A Cold? by Kasandra Brabaw — If zinc for colds sounds too good to be true, that's because there's a good chance it is. “Study results are mixed, but the short answer is that zinc probably doesn’t prevent or treat a cold,” says Tina Ardon, MD, a family medicine doctor at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. For adults, the evidence is pretty clear that zinc does nothing to prevent a cold.
Brain & Life, Journalist Ann Curry Hopes Crowdsourcing Can Solve Medical Mysteries by Gina Shaw — Other crowdsourcing efforts recruit nonmedical professionals. Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, are working with the device company Medtronic to develop a next-generation epilepsy therapeutics platform that uses artificial intelligence algorithms to forecast seizures and guide the delivery of electronic brain stimulation. To develop the algorithms, the group launched an online contest, inviting data scientists from all over the world to analyze recordings of electrical activity in the brains of two people and five dogs before and during epileptic seizures. "In the hope of winning up to $15,000 in prize money and bragging rights in data science circles, hundreds of algorithm developers, most with little or no experience with epilepsy or EEG, worked countless hours to build, test, and rebuild algorithms for seizure forecasting," says Ben Brinkmann, PhD, a data scientist at Mayo Clinic and lead author of the study, which also involved the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Minnesota.
Modern Healthcare, Q&A: 'The key is going to be providing information that’s actually helpful' by Tara Bannow — Mayo Clinic is in a period of transformation as it catapults its flagship Rochester, Minn., campus into a hub of economic development and reacts to the continued pressures facing rural healthcare. Amid all that, the system’s leadership is figuring out how the Trump administration’s latest proposed rule on price transparency, which would require hospitals to post their negotiated rates, will affect Mayo and, ultimately, patients. Modern Healthcare finance reporter Tara Bannow interviewed Mayo’s chief financial officer, Dennis Dahlen, to discuss his mixed feelings on the latest price transparency push, among other front-and-center issues. The following is an edited transcript...
Health Leaders, 5 innovation strategies you should consider now from a global perspective by Mandy Roth — …Because the Israeli market is so small, Zimlichman says that "95%, if not more, of startups in Israel are aiming for the U.S. market. Everything in the startup culture in Israel is geared towards the U.S." Understanding the American market and regulations is crucial, he says, as is the ability to pilot a proof of concept at an American site.To facilitate those endeavors, in the past two years he has signed collaboration contracts with many prominent academic medical centers in North America, including Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota; Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto, California; Mount Sinai in New York; Jefferson Health in Philadelphia; Cincinnati Children's in Ohio; and Henry Ford Health System in Detroit. These relationships have provided Zimlichman further insights into the way health systems approach innovation, he says.
AMA, Mayo Clinic’s cancer telerehab program boosts quality of life by Andis Robeznieks — A six-month telerehabilitation program yielded improvements in advance-stage cancer patients’ pain and function. The gains in these areas reduced hospital lengths of stay and the need for post-acute care, demonstrating the effectiveness of easily scalable, high-impact technology interventions. “Our finding of reduced hospital use among participants in the telerehabilitation arms adds to growing evidence that proactively addressing functional impairment among vulnerable patients reduces hospital utilization,” wrote Mayo Clinic researchers in a JAMA Oncology report.
American Hospital Association, Health System Venture Funds Place Their Bets on Innovation — Mayo Clinic Ventures: The group commercializes Mayo Clinic’s discoveries to benefit patients around the world while generating revenue to support clinical practice, research and education. It accounted for 5% of Mayo Clinic’s operating net income of $706 million in 2018. Focusing largely on the advancement of health-related technologies, Mayo Clinic Ventures receives more than 700 ideas per year, about one-third of which move forward into some form of development.

Morning Brew, Nanotechnology: A Giant Leap for Medicine by Alex Hickey — Nanomedicine was a medical buzzword around a decade ago, and research funding was pouring in from the government and other backers, the Mayo Clinic’s Joy Wolfram told the Brew. Today, that funding is starting to plateau—but that’s not a bad thing: It means after steady uphill progress, nanomedicine is becoming integrated across fields (therapeutics do take decades and billions of dollars to develop, after all)...One of the main projects Wolfram and her team are working on is nanomedicine for cancer diagnostics. Cancer cells release nanoparticles that can travel to other organs and lay the groundwork for metastasis (when the cancer spreads).
FOX News, AI may detect AFib in just 10 seconds by Brian Krans —Typically, a patient with heart troubles will undergo an electrocardiogram, or EKG. That’s a recording of the heart’s electrical activity while the test is being administered and a trained expert will review the readout. But if the patient isn’t experiencing symptoms at the time of the test, it may not be detectable, so researchers at the Mayo Clinic recently released the results of a study where they used artificial intelligence to look over hundreds of thousands of EKGs and found a way to potentially diagnose AFib in as little as 10 seconds. Dr. Paul Friedman, chair of the department of cardiovascular medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said in a statement that applying an AI model to EKG readings allows doctors to detect signs of AFib, even if larger symptoms aren’t occurring when the EKG is recorded. “It is like looking at the ocean now and being able to tell that there were big waves yesterday,” he said.

KABC-TV, Are cholesterol-lowering drugs right for you? Statin side effects you should know by Denise Dador — Mayo Clinic says there's still some debate surrounding these drugs. Common side effects include nausea, headaches and even more serious effects like liver damage, increased blood sugar, type two diabetes and memory loss. Mayo also lists those who may be at a greater risk for side effects including women and people over 80.
Seattle Times, New study calls for screening of family members of celiac-disease patients — Parents, siblings and children of people with celiac disease are at high risk of also having the disease, according to a Mayo Clinic study. This study calls for screening of all first-degree relatives of patients — not just those who show symptoms. The study, to be published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings in September, found that 44% of screened first-degree relatives had celiac disease. Of those patients, 94% had symptoms that were not classic or had no symptoms at all. “Research has shown that family members of celiac disease patients are at higher risk, and we used our Mayo Clinic data to show that proactive screening of first-degree relatives, regardless of whether they showed symptoms, resulted in diagnoses that would have been missed,” says Dr. Imad Absah, a Mayo Clinic pediatric gastroenterologist and the study’s lead author.
Honolulu Civil Beat, Limited Training Options Worsen Hawaii’s Doctor Shortage by Eleni Gill — Kamehameha Schools graduate Kekoa Taparra would love to return home to complete his doctor training in Hawaii when he graduates from medical school. But he can’t. A training program in radiation oncology — his chosen specialty — simply doesn’t exist in Hawaii. “I have this mission to come back home and join the forefront against cancer, but I definitely have to stay on the mainland a bit longer,” he said over the phone from Rochester, Minnesota, where he attends the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine. Taparra, 28, entered his fourth year of medical school this fall and his graduate medical training will likely take at least another five years.

While placenta can be eaten raw or cooked with onions, it can also be dried, crushed, and put into pill capsules. And while more research is certainly needed on the subject, some health experts have warned against eating your placenta. "Eating your placenta after giving birth (placentophagy) can pose harm to both you and your baby," the Mayo Clinic's Mary Marnach, M.D. has warned.
SELF, 14 Low-Calorie Alcoholic Drinks Registered Dietitians Love by Zahra Barnes — 9. An ice cold beer: "A true Wisconsin native, I'm especially a fan of a nice hoppy craft brew. Not only do I enjoy the flavor complexities a craft beer has to offer, beer gives you the most volume for about the same total of calories and alcohol as wine and spirits, meaning it takes longer to drink and therefore helps moderate total alcohol consumption." —Emily Brown, R.D.N., L.D., wellness dietitian at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program.
Ladders, 8 things to do first thing in the morning (for a better day) by Rachel Weingarten — A few years back I interviewed stress expert Amit Sood, M.D. from the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program and a lot of what he said really stuck with me. According to Sood, of the 100 events that surround us each day — four are bad and 96 are good. He told me then that “we need to zoom out and focus on what is right in my life as opposed to what is wrong.” Try remembering what you love about your job — or your life — instead of the parts you really hate.

Gulf Today, Is intermittent fasting a healthy way to lose weight? — Intermittent fasting is cutting yourself off from any food, other than water, for a certain amount of time. Some fasting is for religious reasons, while others fast for weight loss. But is it a healthy way to lose weight? “We’re hearing a lot more about intermittent fasting, and it essentially means the voluntary abstinence of food for a prolonged period of time,” says Mikel Bryant, a Mayo Clinic dietitian. Bryant says, while fasting can be a tool that helps some people with weight loss, “it’s not necessarily the entire answer to everybody’s problem. Our body needs a given amount of nutrients every day.”
