Women, work, stress, and heart disease: 5 ways to protect yourself

Harvard researchers have uncovered strong links between women’s job stress and cardiovascular disease. Findings from the Women’s Health Study, involving more than 17,000 female health professionals, show that women whose work is highly stressful have a 40% increased risk of heart disease (including heart attacks and the need for coronary artery surgery) compared with their less–stressed colleagues. The results, which were presented at an American Heart Association meeting in 2010, also showed that women who worry about losing their jobs are more likely to have high blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol levels and to be obese. "Job strain" combines psychological demand and degree of control. "Demand" refers to the amount, pace, and difficulty of the work. "Control" means the ability to make work–related decisions or be creative at work.

A large 15–year study of nurses in Denmark also concluded that the greater the work pressure, the higher the risk for heart disease among women ages 51 and under. And in a study of white–collar workers in Beijing, job strain was associated in women (but not in men) with increased thickness of the carotid artery wall, an early sign of cardiovascular disease.

Stress with a "fight–or–flight" response, triggers a cascade of chemicals and hormones that speed the heart rate, quicken breathing, increase blood pressure, and boost the amount of energy (sugar) supplied to muscles. The body does not differentiate between grave, imminent dangers and less momentous ongoing sources of stress, such as financial difficulties, job strain, and even worries about potential problems that haven’t yet arisen. When the fight–or–flight response is chronically in the "on" position, the body suffers.

The stress may aggravate inflammation in coronary arteries, leading to blood clots that can trigger a heart attack. Stress also makes it harder to practice heart–healthy habits, such as exercise, a good diet, not smoking, and adequate sleep. It’s hard to tell what proportion of heart attack risk is due to psychological stress as opposed to, say, smoking or lack of exercise. And some women may be predisposed (genetically or from early life experience) to react less effectively than others to stressors.

  1. Foster mutually supportive relationships with friends, family, and co–workers.
  2. Get regular exercise. It’s good for the heart, reduces anxiety and depression, and improves sleep.
  3. Limit intrusions (such as work–related e–mails) on your life outside of work.
  4. Practice relaxation techniques, such as meditation, deep breathing, progressive relaxation, or visualization.
  5. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, seek help from a mental health professional.

Kerala to launch SMS alerts for vaccinations of infants

Thiruvananthapuram: Parents of new born babies in Kerala will soon get SMS reminders on their mobile phones about the details of mandatory vaccinations for the infant. The system has been developed by Information Kerala Mission (IKM),the e–governance project of the Government of Kerala, as part of the ‘Hospital Kiosks’. The messages will be sent to the parents who register online the birth of their child through the Hospital Kiosks, the facility arranged at the hospitals for birth and death registrations, said A Shaji, Director (Implementation), Information Kerala Mission. "The SMS facility is an integrated project connected with r Hospital Kiosk programme through which people can register birth and death at the respective hospitals and get the certificates easily," Shaji said. "The mobile numbers mentioned in the birth registration forms will be collected and details of vaccination will be sent as SMS to the number. There are several vaccinations and injections to be administered to the new–borns. The SMS facility will help parents to remember the exact date and period of vaccinations and its significance," he said. The IKM is planning to launch the programme state wide from next month in all hospitals which have the Hospital Kiosks. At present, 365 hospitals––both government and private––across the state have Kiosks, Shaji said. (Source: http://www.zeenews.com/news689256.html)

February is Heart Health Month

The more colorful the vegetable, the more heart–protective antioxidants contained within. Steaming is better than using the microwave for preserving nutrients. However, over–steaming or boiling will remove many of these heart healthy elements.

Do not deliver even a day earlier

A new study from Boston has shown that delivery even a bit early may mean developmental delay. The study is published in the Journal Pediatrics. Previously, these infants were categorized as small full term infants but nowadays, they are defined as pre–term infants.

Pre diabetes

One of the three American adults may have pre–diabetes and 39% jump over 2008 estimates, according to a new CDC report.

Kidney stones and CAD link

Young adults with kidney stones may be at risk of coronary blockages later in life as per a new report published in Journal of Urology.

Breast implant and cancer

Not a good news for women with breast transplant. FDI has given a warning about possible link between breast implants and rare lymphomatous cancer.

 
    Infertility Update

Dr. Kaberi Banerjee, Director Precious Baby Foundation

How do fertility treatment and the resulting birth of a child affect the possibility of conceiving again, either, with or without treatment?

I don’t identify the answer to this, but I visualize it depends on what the initial analysis was. If the original problem was blocked tubes that were repaired, chances are they will be fine the next time around. However, if the cause was male factor that required ICSI, chances are ICSI will be required the next time around, too.

    Hepatology Update

Dr. Neelam Mohan, Director Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Liver Transplantation, Medanta – The Medicity

We have only one liver. How can a person donate liver?

Liver is the only organ in body which regenerates. Therefore one can donate a part of liver and the healthy liver would soon regenerate. Liver is divided into 2 lobes – right and left and into a total 8 segments. Each lobe has a separate arterial (hepatic artery – right and Left branches) venous (Portal vein – right & left branches) ductal (bile duct – right and left) supply.

What is the time taken by the liver to regenerate back?

It takes less than 3–4 weeks for more than 80–90% of the liver to regenerate.

    Medicolegal Update

Dr Sudhir Gupta, Associate Professor, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS

What is the American Society of Anesthesia (ASA) classification for deaths during surgical procedures?

The general principle is that unexpected deaths should be investigated, though in the British coroner system and India there are no exceptions to such investigations, once reported to the appropriate legal authority however in USA the ASA has five classifications.

  • ASA 1 – those with no serious disease.
  • ASA 2 – those who may have a serious disease, but may no limitations on their activities.
  • ASA 3 – those with serious disease and limitations to their activities.
  • ASA 4 – those with a serious disease that is a constant threat to their health and that limits their activities.
  • ASA 5 – those with such serious disease that their death can be expected within 24 hours, with or without treatment.

The society recommended that the classes 1–3 require full investigation, as they were expected to survive; those in Class 4 that were elective and not emergency procedures, with no expectation of death are also included.

 
    Rabies Update

Dr. AK Gupta, Author of "RABIES – the worst death"

How is rabies transmitted?

Rabies is transmitted by infected secretions. Most commonly, transmission to humans takes place through exposure to saliva during a bite by an infected animal. Rabies virus can be excreted in saliva, tears, urine, sweat, nasal discharge and respiratory secretions.

Man–to–man transmission of rabies is possible. Rabies can be transmitted following bite by a rabies patient. In 2004, three cases of human rabies were reported in U.S. following liver and kidney transplantation from rabies patients.

Transplantation of rabies infected cornea can cause rabies in recipient. Therefore a careful neurological history of donor must be taken before cornea transplantation.

What is net asset value (NAV)?

Net asset value (NAV) is the actual value of one unit of a given scheme on any given business day. The NAV reflects the liquidation value of the fund’s investments on that particular day after accounting for all expenses. It is calculated by deducting all liabilities (except unit capital) of the fund from the realizable value of all assets and dividing it by number of units outstanding.

Situation: A woman with rheumatoid arthritis became pregnant while taking Leflunomide.
Dr. Bad: You can continue to take it.
Dr. Good: Stop it immediately.
Lesson: In women with rheumatoid arthritis who become pregnant while taking leflunomide, healthy pregnancy outcomes usually occur, if the drug is discontinued at the earliest and a cholestyramine drug elimination procedure is done. (Arthritis Rheum 2010;62:1494)

Make Sure

Situation: A dengue patient with BP 100/90 developed shock.
Reaction: Oh my God! Why was rapid fluid challenge not given?

Five common eye myths dispelled

Myth: Doing eye exercises will delay the need for glasses.
Fact: Eye exercises will not improve or preserve vision or reduce the need for glasses. Your vision depends on many factors, including the shape of your eye and the health of the eye tissues, none of which can be significantly altered with eye exercises.

An Inspirational Story
(Contributed by Dr. Anupam Sethi Malhotra)

Forgive and Forget

This is the most powerful aid to peace of mind. We often develop ill feelings inside our heart for the person who insults us or harms us. We nurture grievances. This in turn results in loss of sleep, development of stomach ulcers, and high blood pressure. This insult or injury was done once, but nourishing of grievance goes on forever by constantly remembering it. Get over this bad habit. Believe in the justice of God and the doctrine of Karma. Let Him judge the act of the one who insulted you. Life is too short to waste in such trifles.
Forgive, Forget, and march on. Love flourishes in giving and forgiving.

A Horoscope For The Workplace

Astrology tells us about you and your future simply by your birthday. The Chinese Zodiac uses the year of your birth. Demographics tell us what you like, dislike, whom you vote for, what you buy, and what you watch on TV. Well, the Corporate Zodiac goes a step further: simply by your job title, people will have you all figured out…

MARKETING: You are ambitious yet stupid. You chose a marketing degree to avoid having to study in college, concentrating instead on drinking and socializing, which is pretty much what your job responsibilities are now. Least compatible with Sales.

Dear sir, please tell me the HbA1C values to be maintained in a patient with gdm during pregnancy. Regards: Dr. R. Muralitharan

  1. Hemoglobin A1C values provide an assessment of the degree of chronic glycemic control, reflecting the mean blood glucose concentration during the preceding few weeks.
  2. In nonpregnant individuals, A1C reflects the mean blood glucose over the previous 8 to 12 weeks.
  3. This period is shorter in pregnancy because the mean age of red blood cells is shortened in pregnant women due to increased production.
  4. Most women can be followed with monthly A1C determinations.
  5. The goal is to achieve a value at or near the normal range without inducing hypoglycemia.
  6. The rationale for choosing this target is that observational studies have shown that A1C values up to 1 percent above normal are associated with rates of congenital anomalies and miscarriage similar to the rates in the general population.
  7. However, hypoglycemia is more common with this level of glycemic control and studies have not rigorously evaluated the risk versus benefit of this approach.

target blood glucose values – The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) capillary glucose targets are:

ACOG:

  • Fasting glucose concentrations ≤95 mg/dL (5.3 mmol/L)
  • Preprandial glucose concentrations no higher than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L)
  • One–hour postprandial glucose concentrations no higher than 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/L)
  • Two–hour postprandial glucose concentrations no higher than 120 mg/dL (6.7 mmol/L)
  • Mean capillary glucose 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) and glycosylated A1C ≤6 percent
  • During the night, glucose levels should not decrease to less than 60 mg/dL (3.3 mmol/L)

ADA:

  • Preprandial, bedtime, and overnight glucose concentrations 60 to 99 mg/dL (3.3 to 5.5 mmol/L)
  • Peak postprandial glucose concentrations 100 to 129 mg/dL (5.6 to 7.2 mmol/L)
  • A1C less than 6.0 percent

New epidemics of the society

Iron deficiency anemia, vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome resulting in high blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases and obesity, breast cancer and high levels of stress are the new epidemics in women in the society.

Addressing a press conference here today, Dr. KK Aggarwal, Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, President Heart Care Foundation of India, Acharya Dr. Sadhvi Sadhna ji Maharaj, Chairperson World Fellowship of Religions, Dr. Kaberi Banerjee, Infertility Specialist Max Hospital,
Dr. Vandana Chadha
, Fetal Gynecologist, Moolchand Medcity, in a joint statement said that most of the women disorders today are preventable and occur due to faulty lifestyle.

Most of the traditional rituals were designed so as to prevent lifestyle disorders. In a study conducted by Heart Care Foundation of India, it has been found that women who are observing a weekly fast have a much lower incidence of metabolic syndrome than those women who do not observe any fast. The experts said that the weekly fast ritual of our country was made so that the general public could omit eating carbohydrates at least once in a week which prevents the onset of insulin resistance in them thereby preventing diabetes, high blood pressure and heart diseases.

The ritual of eating gur-chana every Friday in the form of Vrat prevents the development of iron deficiency in the society. Today, even the WHO has endorsed that all women should eat 50mg of iron every week.

Worshiping sun in the month of Magh, Vaishakh and Kartik and eating calcium–rich foods like sesame and urad dal has long been a ritual for Indians. It prevented Indians from developing Vitamin D deficiency, which is now a new epidemic of the society.

The press conference was organized to earmark the Dr. Sadhna International Women Empowerment Day being observed on Sunday, 27th February, 2011. Dr. Sadhna International Women Empowerment Awards will be distributed to eminent women of the society by Dr. Sadhna International Women Rights Protection Trust. The awardees for this year will include Ms Abheeta Khanna, Ms Aarti Upadhaya, Ms Gauri Karan, Ms Nainika Karan Vadera, Dr Kaberi Banerjee, Dr Veena Jaju, Ms Shakun Goyal, Ms Madhavi Kotwal Samson, Ms Trishla Jain, Ms Monica Rastogi, Ms Rashmi Singh IAS, Ms Ratan Kaul, Ms. Anju Uppal, Ms Neeva Konwar, Ms Jamuna Solanki, Ms Radhika Makan.

Justice Hima Kohli, Ms Shobhana Bhartiya, Ms Sarjana Sharma, Mrs. Vasvi Bharat Ram. Smt. Mohsina Kidwai (INC) MP will be the Chief Guest and Sh J P Aggarwal MP will preside over the function. Shri H T Sangliana, Vice Chairman, National Commission for Minorities will be the Guest of Honour.

A special free heart checkup camp is also being organized on the occasion. More than 350 members of the public will be attending the function.

Talking about the Women Rights Protection Trust and heart diseases, the experts said that Harvard researchers have uncovered strong links between women’s job stress and cardiovascular disease. Findings from the Women’s Health Study, involving more than 17,000 female health professionals, show that women whose work is highly stressful have a 40% increased risk of heart disease (including heart attacks and the need for coronary artery surgery) compared with their less-stressed colleagues. (American Heart Association 2010) Women who worry about losing their jobs are more likely to have high blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol levels and to be obese.

Job stress is the interaction between demand (amount, pace, and difficulty of the work) and degree of control (ability to make work–related decisions or be creative at work). The stress may aggravate inflammation in coronary arteries, leading to blood clots that can trigger a heart attack.

Talking about women and alcohol, the experts said that women cannot digest alcohol more than 50% of what men can. The safe limit of alcohol for a woman is one peg against two pegs in men. Talking about polycystic disease in young and adolescent girls, the experts said that eating high amounts of white rice, white sugar and white maida can lead to infertility in children. Today, the medical advancement has gone to such a level that no couple should be infertile as long as they have one sperm and one functional ova to spare.

Talking about congenital heart diseases in children, the experts said that one out of 1000 children are born with congenital heart diseases and 30% of them with major cardiac disorders necessitating intervention within few days, which if not done is associated with high mortality. Eighty percent of such children born in India die before their diagnosis or receipt of treatment.

All parents should insist on ultrasound during pregnancy at 18–20 weeks and to have the heart of the fetus checked up at that particular time.
