  6. Flavoring Food May Promote Weight Loss http://www.everydayhealth.com/publicsite/S...Health_20080619 Published: 06/16/08 MONDAY, June 16 (HealthDay News) -- Boosting the flavor of your food with calorie-free seasonings and sweeteners may help you feel fuller faster and decrease the amount you eat, according to a U.S. study that suggests this may be a new way to help people lose weight. The study of "tastants" -- substances that can stimulate the sense of taste -- included 2,436 overweight or obese people who were asked to sprinkle a variety of savory or sweet crystals on their foo
  7. Low-Salt Diet May Not Be Best for Heart Published: 06/04/08 WEDNESDAY, June 4 (HealthDay News) -- Surprising new research suggests that a diet low in salt may be worse for your heart than eating lots of salt, but don't start eating potato chips just yet. "No one should run out and buy a salt shaker to try to improve their cardiovascular health. But we think it's reasonable to say that different people have different needs," said study author Dr. Hillel W. Cohen, an associate professor of epidemiology and population health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University

  10. When I went to camp cushie and the last few days was taking the dex pills, I was bouncing off the walls and having the time of my life. My cushie partner did not have the same reaction and we both suppressed. I think it just depends on the person. But I loved it!!! I got to site see and it was pain free. Hugs, Lorri
  11. Way to go Cindy!! What a wonderful man IMCC is to us. I'm truly sorry for all that you are dealing with, but thankful that you are willing to share the information for other cushies. Who knows, we question God "WHY"! Maybe this is your why!!! Love you, Lorri

But good luck and I'll have to listen to the recorded version. You have a lot to offer. Break a leg, Hugs, Lorri
  13. Progressive Muscle Relaxation Learning to cope with stress is an important part of managing your weight. Uncontrolled stress can have many unhealthy side effects ? it may zap your energy, reduce your motivation, and increase your appetite, prompting you to relapse into unhealthy habits. This week, we want to show you a stress-reduction technique called progressive muscle relaxation. It's a helpful tool to turn to when life's pressures mount. To begin, find a quiet place to be where you can comfortably lie or sit down and where you won't have any distractions. Then follow these steps:
  14. I'm sorry, but I couldn't resist!!! Michael Jackson could be in for a rude awakening!! hee hee hee
  15. Jane, This is GREAT news!!!! I worry so much about my Daddy!! He doesn't take his meds right and he can go from 300 to in the 50's sometimes. This would be perfect for him. Any idea how fast physicians will get trained on this product and when it may actually be available. I saw it was just printed yesterday. You always dig up such great info, you are the bomb!! Hugs, Lorri
  16. Melissa, I have been thinking of how to get cushings on the Opra show too. I know many have tried but it still seems to be of no interest. As tragic as it is, I was wondering if we could speak with Lori's family members and see if we could send her story of not being dx'd in time and dr's not knowing how to do the surgery or offer proper post-op care to the Opra show. Also add someones elses story with it from one of the cushies here that has been fighting for years and still not able to get dx'd. Hopefull they would be willing to be a spokes person. Maybe the story, although tragic might spa
  18. Jane, I want to thank you for this info as well. Do you have Melissa's e-mail address, I think she would like to read this and she has been so busy, she hasn't been able to get on the boards lately. Hugs, Lorri
  19. Estimation using creatinine clearance In clinical practice, however, creatinine clearance is used to measure GFR. Creatinine is an endogenous molecule, synthesized in the body, which is freely filtered by the glomerulus (but also secreted by the renal tubules in very small amounts). Creatinine clearance is therefore a close approximation of the GFR. However, the approximation of the GFR calculation is best measured by the evaluation and visualization of the frequency and duration of urination. The GFR is typically recorded in units of volume per time, e.g. milliliters per minute (ml/min).
  20. Does that mean the volume? Maybe that is why I can't get a high UFC because of my 2+ jugs. Luv ya. Lorri
  21. Creatinine? As in Bun/creatinine? I'm looking for you, but is this what you need? You spelled it differently. Hugs, Lorri
  22. Cindy, I love the inspiration you give, not only to me but to others as well. You have such an ease to the words you post. It gives me such great comfort to read any posts you have written. You are truly a light in this dark world.

    Luv ya, Lorri

  23. I just wanted everyone to know that I ordered the new t-shirts that say "Got Hump". It is strategically placed right across the chest which I thought was funny. My husband walked in and said you mean "Got Humps". I mean after all that is one place you also gain weight. So it is a very noticable t-shirt. Make sure it has a ribbon on the back and if you have long hair wear it up, so people won't be afraid to ask you about it. My parents had raised eyebrows when they first saw it, until I showed the ribbon and explained it was to get awareness out about cushings. I really like mine. I got the
  24. Yes I would love the magnets and wristbands, 10 each. Thanks Mary O for all that you do. It is deeply appreciated.
  25. I am in the same delima as you, except my test was a 20, but all the others were high. I was told they have to give your labs to you so just demand it. good luck
