"Our time if we can proper lighting on both the instrument in front of us as well as in our surrounding light. And this really leads to the time element. And how can we control how much time we're spending on these tablets and phones and computers. And then when we add office building scenarios, things that sometimes we have control over and sometimes we don't, we add, let's say, for example, fluorescent lights into the mix which for years we've known can cause some discomfort and reflect reflections off of screens to the time that we're spending on devices will now we're adding up to some major challenges for our patients. While there are some pathological causes for problems with light and some of these are fairly common, some of these are a little bit less, but did you know that dry eyes, for example, or a path that pathologic cause for issues with photophobia? So now we're talking about 36 to 38 million people in the United States, then we can add on natural aging changes, cataracts, diabetes can actually initiate some photophobia in our patients. First of all, deposits in the cornea, migraine, glaucoma is one that doesn't go talked about nearly enough. And then we talk about additional things. Well, there's a whole list of medications that actually can initiate photophobia. And so it's not something that all of us necessarily memorize, except for the more common drugs and common conditions, but a quick Internet search, Google search. Of side effects of medications and conditions can at least fall for us the impulse to bring this up to our patients on these meds are with these conditions because if we don't bring it up, nobody else will. And some of these patients may just think, well, jeez, I can't think this is just me. Now realizing that not to know it's not exactly just them is the condition that they have and all the medications were on, which then initiates the discussion, which leads us to the ECPs to managing these patients with recommended products, special lenses, lens treatments, lens coatings, ways that they can actually live their lives with far more comfort. One of the misconceptions with regards to light management is for many years, a lot of us, I would say myself included, look for physical indicators to help identify a light sensitive person from another. Commonly, we would be might predict that a patient with lighter skin and lighter eared would be, let's say, retina retina color would have more issues with license activity that darker pigmented retina, darker irides and darker skin, but actually the research on that is equivocal. The rest has been no actually consistent data to properly validate that theory or claim. And in fact, we're finding more often that it's just not predictable. So we really need to bring these things up and consider them with all patients without regard to age demographics and physical indicators and just treat them all the same and in that this concept of protection is relevant to everybody. So what types of things can we recommend for our patients and what is our list of considerations? We've mentioned all of these. We have quality, anti reflective coatings. Protections against blue light in both spectacles and contact lenses, high quality branded photo program lenses with or without polarization depending on our patients. They could have a second pair of fixed polarized lenses or fixed tinted sunglasses. And some lenses that may offer some additional accommodative relief, especially as we get into presbyopic years or near crispy years. All those things are our choiceless and our menu, if you will, for. Providing some relief to our patients, which in turn can really have some high impact on quality of life. And so that's really the magic piece of this story. It's simple to us, however, simplicity does not mean it's lacking in importance, a simplistic approach in this case can lead to greater quality of life. And at the end of the day, if we can offer that to our patients, there's really not much more than we could do. But what about a patient with multiple pair of glasses? If we prescribe a pair that has multiple attributes and several different value adds is that limit that to one. That is a common bread and again misconception. In that, over 40 percent of patients who have a sunglass prescription lens also have photochromics. And the flip side is also true. Over 40% of patients with photochromics also have a pair of prescription sunglasses, so though one lens can offer a lot of attributes that does not necessarily limit the purchase power and your additional recommendations. So don't prejudge your patients and miss assume that when you prescribe a product that has multiple value adds that they're going to stop there. Offer all the things that can benefit them in their lives and you'll actually should find the data as I just laid it out to you. Our patient's excited about this actually more so than I think most people would believe are predict. When surveyed, non wearers of photochromics, 81% claim that they would like lenses that adapt to light and varied lighting conditions. And now we have these options. Glasses, we have these options to contact lenses, and we really have an opportunity to put all this into our practice because at the end of the day, we have the most influence. When it comes to eyeglass and contact lens recommendations, they want our opinion more so than anybody else. In terms of the influence power, 28% say they purchased a product based recommendations from their friends. 37% said they made purchase purchases based on the recommendations from immediate family, 55% after discussions with their spouse or significant other and 61% from their ACPs. So it's still us. So when we talk about as we wrap this up and we talk about the categories of light management in terms of the severity of need for our patients, we have to somehow determine the severity of issue for our patients. Are they not licensed at all? Maybe they're only light sensitive in certain scenarios, are they white sensitive, pretty much in a daily basis, or in some cases severely light sensitive, how

"Sure you pay it off in full every month. And if you do that, as long as you pay the balance off in full, you can get some amazing benefits with credit cards, for instance, I've got some that give me 3% cash back. So you can bet that when the utility company says you can put your of course we run radio stations. So our utility bills are always about $2200 a month. When they say you can put it on a credit card, I'm like, hell, yes, I'll take that 3%. But I'm going to pay it off in full at the end of the month. I'm never going to get caught one day late because then the interest will slam you. Oh, I had told my ex with the last child that we should pay for it on the credit card to get the percentage money back. Right. Yeah, you know? My issue is in June, I had two cataract surgeries two weeks apart. Okay. Yeah, I had scheduled for the different color eye drops. I get everything. I mark the moth as soon as I put them in. And here I am, it's December, I have another appointment with my ophthalmologist next month. And she had been there three times since and gone through the different battery of tests they have and she said that everything looked fine. Well, from my perspective, first off, if I take off, either the cheaters I bought at Walgreens, which for 1499, the adapt from the lease to the greatest, which is nice. For reading. And I got a distance, which I need, so I don't go up meetings that I think are flat at night. And but it feels like my eyes when I take something off of them. I've been assaulted by the air. Now, I was told to use moisturizing eye drops, which I'm hoping that that won't become addictive, like no spray, be addictive. But I still see folks on a get horrible glare and because of a failed back surgery that rendered me a cripple after they didn't know my personality and I do walk. I know nerves from the waist down. But I switched from that took a year and a half. To muscle memory in a drive, I walked very far, but I have my second walker. But when you're told you're never going to do something, don't say that to somebody. Yes. You know, just like patient two is terminal. Yeah, tell them. They should get their things in order and do things, but don't give someone an expiration date occurred in a vague. Oh, of course not. And your wise to ignore that because they don't have a link to God to know, period. What do I do? Yeah, I know. It's not easy. And right now, unfortunately, the state of allopathic medicine is scary as hell. Doctors spend four minutes with you and throw a drug at it, no matter what it is. But she's been very good, especially. Since it's Medicaid, which I had it, do because I could no longer work in paid $600 for blue truck. Well, so you got two different things going on. You've got the I thing that cataract surgery posts cataract surgery and you've got the ambulatory thing going on. So with the cataracts. Now the intraocular lenses they put in, I assume that the pact was debate. You know, because you have to pay extra. But I mean, for the non glare, et cetera well, sometimes you're better off with a base actually because some of the latest and greatest actually cause more halos and more glare believe it or not. But with this in mind, in terms of your vision, are you getting the vision, never mind the artifacts and the haziness and the glare. But just in terms of, are you getting the vision you expected as far as powers? You know, or you see in as far as you thought you'd see. I am becoming extremely more reliant upon these reading glasses. That goes through books a week. That's normal. Yeah. And the distance, you know, I wear, so I'm actually using two pairs of glasses on my head and I keep switching. Like in the store. No, I understand that. It wouldn't have been the way I would have suggested they do the powers. But, you know, as far as that goes, it's not good, but it's manageable now to it's like 6 months ago to still have the kind of artifacts you have, the doctor keeps saying it's normal. And you're saying, well, when will this correct? And what answer are you getting? It just takes time. How much? Now, I'm not a good surgical candidate for anything. Well, understood. The surgery I had has gone basically arrived. Okay, so your experiencing dry eye, that's what you're talking about when the air stuff like that. Dry ice very, very, very common. But it's normally temporary and you're talking about, you know, 6 months later, you're still having it. And I would absolutely want to know what the trajectory is, how long should this last because there could be corneal nerve damage, which that corneal nerves are involved into your production. There could be other things there could be inflammation going on. It sounds to me like your doctor is just saying it's normal and dismissing it. And

"Everyone says, oh, it's the glucose that's causing the kidney disease. Garbage. It's the insulin that's causing the kidney disease. And we know that because the type one diabetics, they have high blood glucose, but their kids don't get shot for 30 years. The type two diabetics, their kidneys are shot before they even walk in the door. Yeah. Because they have high insulins, because it's the insulin that's the problem. And we're not touching that. This is really important. And one of the things that really woke me up to this was this big study of 10,000 diabetics called the accord study. You remember the study from long time ago. And the idea was let's aggressively lower blood sugar in order to improve outcomes, reduce deaths and kidney failure and all the complications of diabetes. And it increased the deaths. Yeah, so what actually was fascinating because the more insulin you gave, the more drugs like the oral hypoglycemic you mentioned, the sulfonylureas, they work by increasing insulin, which is like flogging a tired horse. And they produce more insulin, and the more insulin you give, the worse the outcomes. So this was just a fascinating study. Better glucose control, more deaths, and more complications. There are actually 5 studies that have shown the same thing. That's, of course, one of them. But the advanced study showed it, the ADD trials toad at the Muir glitter study showed the UK PDS studies showed it. Bottom line is more insulin more death. Yeah. And yet we continue to do the same thing in medicine over and over. Despite all the research. We see in practice evidence based medicine, but we really don't. We ignore the evidence that isn't actually fostering an increase in the sale of drugs and medical procedures. All the incentives are so backwards. Bottom line is Einstein's theory of insanity, his rife within medicine. He famously said, you know, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Well, we've been doing the same thing over and over again for the last 50 years. And you know what? No different result. So you frame all these diseases as really the tip of the iceberg. And underneath it, you say, are these 8 processes? Is 8 metabolic phenomena. These subcellular pathologies you call them, that are really driving everything. And I'll just list them, and then we can kind of go into the mall. We talked a little bit about ansari resistance, but glycation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction we touched on this, membrane integrity, inflammation, epigenetics, autophagy. You talk a lot about this in the book. It's a lot of big words, but it's actually a lot of the same topics that I wrote about in my book, young, forever, because it all drives chronic disease all drives aging. And they're underneath. Well, they're often these are also known as the hallmarks of aging, which are the phenomena that happen that are driving the disease. So hallmark's actually our upstream. And they're not symptoms. They're basically these phenomena that happen from different insults. Mostly from food, by the way. We'll talk about how to fix them with food. And you kind of break it down. I was just like jumping up and down and I saw it. I was like, wow, this is it. You got it, you know? So tell us about these 8 processes and how they can lead to all these diseases. Exactly. So these 8 processes are for the most part. Not processes that you can sort of test for. They're happening in the cell. There are ways to do it. I mean, researchers can do it, but they're not, shall we say clinically available. But they're going. They're going on in all of us. It is part of life. All of these are part of life. You can't stop them. But you can slow them down. But you can only slow them down with food. So their food. They're all food. Exactly. They're not druggable. All food bowl. All right, example, glycation. So glycation, a glucose binds to a protein. Now, when it does that, it makes that protein less flexible. It makes that protein end up being recycled. It might change the function of that protein. It might cause that cell to become more fragile and friable and might end up causing cell death. So glycation is not a good thing. Now, this is what diabetics measure when they measure hemoglobin A1C. This is glycated hemoglobin. The glucose binding to the hemoglobin molecule. Well, that's happening all over your body. It's happening all of the time. The question is, how much? It is the cause of wrinkles. It is because of cataracts. The cause of cardiovascular disease. Dementia. Well, it's one of the causes of dementia, not the only one. The bottom line is, you don't want to be glycated, right? Now you're going to be glycated because it is a process you can't stop. It is part of life. But you can slow it down. How do you slow it down? Stop providing the substrate. Okay? And the substrate for glycation are two. Glucose. Yes. But fructose is 7 times worse. So both. But fructose does its 7 times faster and releases a hundred times the number of oxygen radicals in number two. So I'm fructose corn syrup this and everything is super bad. Yeah, but there's this fructose and sucrose too. I mean, so it almost doesn't matter. The point is, sugar is a bad guy in the story. Full stop. That's what we don't tell our patients. And that's the thing that they need to watch. And it's the thing that they can control themselves. If they choose to. So that's number one. Number two, oxidative stress. Those little hydrogen peroxides. Now, hydrogen peroxide is good if you have a wound, but it's not good if it's inside the cell. Because those hydrogen products. Lets you want to kill an infection or cancer or something can be good, but you know when your body makes a little bit, but it shouldn't make too much. But you shouldn't be making it in your liver. Every time a hydrogen peroxide gets made. It's doing damage. It's doing damage to a lipid. It's doing damage to a protein, ultimately it will kill cells. The bottom line is oxidative stress occurs every time that glycation reaction occurs. That would also occurs from iron. It also occurs from various other processes that go on in the body. But the sum total of that oxidative stress is the aging reaction. That is what ages. And so we need to basically try to mitigate it as much as possible. Now, you can't mitigate the iron, but you can mitigate the sugar. You can mitigate some of the other reactive oxygen species drivers, like for instance, environmental toxins. Okay, like insecticides and things like that that will cause it as well. All right, number three mitochondrial dysfunction. Yeah. We talked about mitochondria being sort of at the heart of this whole problem. Well, it turns out fructose that sweet mall killing sugar inhibits three count them. Three separate enzymes. We've talked about one CPT one. And mitochondria basically make energy from the food you're eating in the Oxford you breathe that runs everything in your body. So when that process gets up, you're having an energy crisis. Exactly right. Exactly right. It inhibits an enzyme called AMP kinase, which is the fuel gauge on the liver cell. It inhibits an enzyme called academic acyl CoA dehydrogenase long chain, which is necessary to get the fatty acids oxidized. So the bottom line is if you are mitochondria are dysfunctional, you're going to be sick. And fructose is a three in one mitochondrial toxin. There are others. I mean, there's a good deal. Three for one, right? But bottom line, that's like number one. Number four, okay? Insulin resistance. Now, we've spent enough time on that. So I think we'll go to number 5. Yeah. Number 5, membrane instability. Now, imagine you have a balloon, you blow up the balloon. And you try to pop a hole in that balloon with your finger. But if you take a pin, it

"So we just have to talk self care. Go ahead, sister. This is very brief. But my black women's self care is not only me just telling you about what I have done, but it is also my little public service announcement. So another thing that I think there's something that's very common in our community as African Americans, but it's not often talked about. And so as you are getting your eye exams, we talk a lot. I've talked a lot on this show about how my you know I got refurbished ass. We thank God that they are working as well as they are working. But the truth of them matter is I'm very nearsighted. I have some issues. And among those issues is I am genetically predisposed for glaucoma. I learned that recently within the last few years, I knew that it was in my family line. My mom and my grandmother have glaucoma. But the thing about glaucoma is early detection really makes the world of difference. And so there are certain indicators and things that we ought to be looking for. I found this article on 21 90 earlier today. That was this highlighting how important that was talking about glaucoma amongst African American. Second to second to cataracts, glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness among black people. And oftentimes, we lose vision because we've had glaucoma for a long time and you know it went untreated for so long when we found out it's usually because vision loss is a symptom of it, but it is a preventable symptom if we can sort of get out in front of it. And so as you're going for, I went for my exam, and one of the tests that is run often when you get your eye exam is to test the pressure in your eyes. And if you're if your pressure tends to run higher or on the upper limits of normal as my doctor says, then you should go in especially to just get screened. And so for the last couple of years, my eye pressure has been sort of hanging out on the upper limits of normal and given my family history, my doctors have decided that it's best for me to go in. Every 6 months to have my pressure sort of assessed. And just sort of taking that proactive preventative stance is west going to ensure that even if I do develop glaucoma, I won't lose my vision because we'll be able to get on top of it and treat it so that vision loss is wholly prevented or even kept to or even at a minimum. So I want to sort of encourage you if you get your eye exams ask them to check your eye pressures if they are not. And to be intentional about inquiring within your family if there's anyone in your family on either side that has dealt with glaucoma before there are certain indicators that you could be looking for. And so to just get with your doctors and ask the right questions so that you can sort of hold on to as much of your vision for as long as possible. No preventative measures are all not always. They're not guaranteed, but they do make a world of difference, which is why we have to take our asses to our specialists and our doctors. Going to the doctor, man, go to the doctor and make sure things is running the way that they're sleeping. And then also preventative on a daily basis with what we how we nourish our bodies what we put in it. And so forth. I'm glad I'm glad to hear that. I'm glad you're getting ahead of it so that, you know, you can try to mitigate as much of that as possible. I'm working on myself care is not nearly as responsible nor. In depth. I'm sorry. I gave myself a pedicure and oh nice. In these very cold months. I have completely forgotten about my feet. And I just, you know, just had on a whim was like, I am going to soak these feet and I'm going to scrub them down and I'm going to click my cuticles. And I'm just going to take the time to do that. And I haven't taken a whole lot of time to do much for myself, especially lately. So I'm really, really glad that I did that. That was my self care this week. Now I'm putting baby feet on my feet because now since it's like real cold and we wearing socks all the time I'm like, I'm putting baby feet on so when they do that crazy peeling, it'll just be happening over this time. Yes, indeed. And that's it for the self care. Let's get negative again and.

"So it's been fun working on that project so so what's next so next thing. I think i really need to focus on just choosing a location now. I had to think a lot about this. Because i think when you want to open a practice you just think that everything's going to be perfect effort or think that this is my dream location and gonna be here forever right. I'm starting to think you know what let's get this ball rolling. Let's pick a good enough location and things change so none of learning to compromise is probably the next step of the way for me. Guess do notch without a location. Why think your i seven years show that you should expect change rather than assume that it's not going to happen now a daily occurrence sometimes. Yeah and you don't want. I may not have expected the trajectory to be the way. It wasn't the last seven years. But i have learned from every position i ever held. And it's brought me to today. Where i'm about to take this step opening private practice and i never thought i'd be saying so if all your moon's align when you think this could come to for wishing and do you foresee yourself maintaining employment somewhere else while you open this burgeoning practice or is it gonna. You're just going to go all in right from the gate. Get get go. How do you plan for that. So hopefully if the moon's do align I would say that this will take about six to nine months altogether so that six to nine months i have a great relationship with the corneal surgeons that i'm working with right now. And he's aware and knows that. I'm opening a practice so i'm going to continue working there until i have enough patience or yet busy enough that i have to take that step of moving onto the next phase which would be fulltime at the new practice so just look into your crystal ball and if everything goes as you plan it what type of practice you wanna have. Are you going to have. Just general practice adult practice. Pediatric practices these practice. And then when. I when i if i walk in your door for the very first time. What do you think the feel is going to be. So when it comes to the practice itself i want to do. General optometry with a focus on specialty lenses. I love seeing patients who have cataracts patients who have dry eyes young patients. I love seeing infants. Don't want to see general optometry patients. But at the same time i right now am a big I guess a specialty. Contact lens fitter and i have a lot of colleagues referring patients to me in that area and i love that. I absolutely love that relationship. That i have and i hope to grow that so i want to focus on specialty lenses but i also want to have regular patients that i see every year. I know a little bit about their family. You know their whole family might come to me. I'm hoping that's the type of practice. I build when it comes to the practice. Feel itself what. I've found with a lot of practices in rhode island. Is that just when you just based off of the location itself you get to see offices that have a very cozy feel to them and i think that matters to the patients when they come in they feel welcomed and i want to preserve that. Maybe it's a rhode island thing but reserve it where patients come in. They feel welcomed. But i also want to the latest technology there so i want patients to come in and feel like wow That's all that that's a new piece of equipment. Or what does that do right. I want them to be able to know that. I'm taking care of their vision. There is with latest technology. That's available for me and for that patient. Yeah i love it. Sounds like it's going to be a great next step of your journey. A super exciting opportunity to open the door for the very first time. So in in in in summary. Your completed dropped metric residency. Have absolutely no regrets if anything. That's encompassing three quarters of what she do each and every day You landed in this understanding that there are actually people out there. Companies out there to help relieve the fears and help you through every step of the process to get you going. Is there anything else that you can look in the rear view mirror on and say wow i wish i would have known that earlier or those some of the really two big ones running that i did can find. That was amazing. I did not think of this earlier on but right now. Even while i'm in private practice i have the wonderful opportunity to still be adjunct faculty and i love that. I still teach at peo. I work with the international students there. And i also work in advanced studies program which has been great because it still allows me to teach I'm also able to work in a consulting role with different companies which keeps me on my toes. Because i'm learning about new technology. That's out there but it's a balance between all this. If you told me seven years ago that there was an opportunity for me to do several different. Like or be a part of our profession in several different roles. I wouldn't have really thought about that. I just thought you pick one job and you do one job. And that's about it. But i really found that there are different opportunities that we have in our profession. And that's really nice. Part about optometry is that it's not just one. And i feel like i get a little bit of everything so the you really do. So as we close and the other words for wisdom that come your way for our audience absolutely are definitely think about residency I think if it's the right opportunity for you and it works for you. You will be happy that you spent that time investing in yourself and then the second thing do not be afraid of opening a practice. There are so many people that are out there to help you. And i never thought that. So with a lot of help out there and advisers. I think they make it easy for you to achieve a dream that you didn't think you could the for wonderful so this is part one of his journey. I'd love to bring you on again. Gritty certainly certainly after your doors open and give us some insight on how your next phase went in this really life. Exciting challenge if. That's okay by you accidentally. I won't share all the things. You should not do all right. Thank you again and hopefully we will chat soon. Everybody have a great day. Thanks for listening. Classes ended for today and we have no exams or grades approaching. Please email me at four professor at gmail.com if there are topics that you would like to hear and see through a professors is..

The more you become a more vital member of the flock that we are building okay. That is so cool and those wrist bands could work on a multi levels.

The line that were no carotid breweries osco. Tation hot sounds jewel. The vascular and research exams will otherwise remarkable pathophysiology clinical features the exact mechanisms behind how this condition begins a largely unknown. Hell of the process is multifactorial and likely involved. Both genetic and environmental components essentially the buddies immune system attacks on blood vessels commonly the lodge and medium-sized arteries of the buddy such as the ailsa and the extra cranial branches of the carotid artery including the commonly affected ophthalmic autry branches however large vessel disease is much less common the body's immune cells namely cd. Full plus t cells and macrophages aggregate into greenwich ltd's giant cells which then become deposited within the media and intimacy affect blood vessels. The smooth muscle fibers give the blood vessel. Walls elasticity gradually disappear making the walls more fragile and likely to balloon out burst very signaling cascades causing inflammatory changes that also caused the deepest layer of the blood vessel the tunica intimacy to become thicker thus causing narrowing these effected blood vessels furthermore signal chemicals such as interleukin one and six are released which act on deliver to create high levels of the acute phase reactions. Esl in cip these then caused systemic inflammation that patients sometimes experience in the form of constitutional symptoms such as low grade fevers weight loss fatigue. Or night sweats. All of these changes compound to reduce blood flow getting to where it needs to go cuisine complications such as double vision cranial nerve palsy or even blindness as well as localized pain due to tissue ischemia if ephron visual pathways are affected visual lawson ensues most commonly with unilateral vision loss from an ischemic optic neuropathy which can then become bilateral within hours without urgent treatment if ephron visual pathways are affected extra ocular muscle weakness can occur leading to complications such as double vision. Loss of visual fields can occurred you. Two stroke in the capital kotex with regards to the ophthalmological signs found as part of the clinical examination patients who have suffered vision loss most commonly present with an anterior ischemic. Optic neuropathy in one. I the patient will have extremely poor vision in the affected eye and they are usually able to appreciate light or hand movements but they're unable to lettuce. There is typically an obvious ephraim pupil defect fundus examination will reveal a swollen optic nerve that has pale other signs of retinal kimia such as cotton wool spots or a central retinal artery inclusion may also be present at presentation mrs smith's levels of cip esau in the blood with both highly elevated whilst gop is more specific than esl. Ideally both used in conjunction for great positive. Predictive value a biopsy of mrs smith's temporal artery on the left hand side was positive for multi nuclear two giant cells. It is important to note that the condition presents with skip lesions so sometimes a negative biopsy results doesn't mean the conditions absence if there is a high suspicion for temporal artery biopsy second biopsy may be required so how does outpatient compared with the usual presentation of joint salata rightous.

Division there may be premonitory symptoms of morose. Few jax will transient monopoly vision. Loss or double vision can occur concurrently with polly mild romantic. Sue patients might have pain stiffness in joints including those of the neck shoulders hips with personal joints unaffected. There is also often low grade fever that has not accounted for by infection or malignancy patients with giant cell outright has may present with unusual pain in the face throat tongue and off described tennis of the scalp discomfort coming there or inability to eat or brush their teeth. This is often accompanied by new onset headache that may or may not be limited to temporal area. And which may become progressively worse or fluctuate in severity. If lawn visceral disease is present. Symptoms can include those of acute coronary syndrome. Abdominal pain limb qualification or even features of abdominal aortic aneurysm or dissection vascular imaging should be performed to exclude these complications which may be lethal realities include. Doppler ultrasound t. in mri with or without an geography or pat scanning to screen for increased metabolic activity associated with vascular artists. Let's also talk about risk factors for this condition. Giant cell arteritis generally affects the elderly with peak incidence above seventy years old and the condition almost never occurring before fifty dollars with that in mind few affected more often than males in terms of geographical distribution people from northern europe a more commonly affected as well as caucasians in general this lynch credit to the notion that a genetic component does exist for this condition. There's very little known. In the way of modifiable risk factors what are some differential diagnoses to keep in mind. If a patient is under fifty five years old considered techy was arthritis and other idiopathic systemic vascular it occurs mostly in young women usually in patients aged in their twenty through forties patients generally present systemic symptoms of malays. Fever night sweats. Weight loss joint pain fatigue and fainting although cranial symptoms a rare central retinal autry inclusion. This condition make was painless vision. Loss in the eye most often as a result of embolic disease from the carotid artery. Oh haunt fundus examination reveals a cherry red spot and sometimes a small mba's can be seen in the restaurant entrees. Herpes zoster appel. Mikus may present scalp tenderness and vision changes on one side of the head. The rash is not always visible at presentation and this condition will worsen with steroids so the patient should be carefully followed angle closure. Glaucoma may cause unilateral vision loss in a severe headache. But the patient usually has a red eye corneal dima and a fixed mid dilated pupil with rates intra ocular pressure non arthritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy which make was unilateral vision loss but is painless without headache joe paying any symptoms of pm. All inflammatory markers are not typically elevated hematological malignancies such as multiple myeloma. lymphoma tra- jimmu neuralgia migraine and transient ischemic attack. Investigations to help elucidate coles of the patient's symptoms blood tests specifically looking for levels of the acute phase proteins. Es saw in cip in giant cell arteritis both usually elevated although low normal levels. Do not exclude the condition and levels of both can be raised by other conditions such as infection malignancy it is important also to conduct a full blood count to explore for unexplained anemia or elevated platelet. Count a patient's white blood cells should also be measured keeping in mind that hematological malignancies can cause elevated levels. The gold standard in terms of diagnosing giant cell. Arteritis is a biopsy of temporal autry to skip lesions may be necessary to obtain multiple unilateral and bilateral samples of the temporal audrey if large vessel involvement is suspected you to systemic symptoms with negative temporal. Entre boxy than the aorta and its first order branches including the sub flavian autrey can be assessed using duplex ultrasound see geography or magnetic resonance geography not to talk about management of giant cell arteritis. In cases where vision is threatened due to the patient reporting visual changes in combination with other signs and symptoms treatment for. Gce begins prior to confirm the diagnosis with positive results from the biopsy. The regimen consists of high dose systemic glucocorticoid such as methylprednisolone given iv infusion histo-pathological changes to the affected auguries a present for two weeks and can still give a diagnostic results. This regiment is highly effective. At reducing inflammation can also preserved. Patient's eyesight for this endangered although studies recommend initial high dose of glucocorticoid. At a tapered off of one or two years with daily dosing showing the most promising results. There is still little consensus on exact these at atonement locally if diagnosis of as made without visual changes systemic glucocorticoid such as zone. Still given but at a smaller dose. It is important to note that neither of the acute phase reactions of esl will see up is perfect with regards to diagnosis of giant cell arteritis. Yes all levels. Only rise with age and clinical experiences suggested that. Cip is more useful for diagnosis of dca however ideally both yes nci used in conjunction and a clinical judgment should be made with consideration of the other symptoms examination findings. Investigations unfortunately relapses the condition can occur as glucocorticoid tapered study suggests that rates of relapse vary from thirty five to seventy five percent. This is assumed to be the case. If symptoms mimicking original presentation recur or if new symptoms of gao pm occur or if there is an acute increase in es saw cip levels and these instances the liquid dosages are increased until the inflammations controlled and they are gradually tip off a game as old treatments. It is proving to consider the risk of harm of treatment it is well established the chronic use of glucocorticoid serious side effects including increased risk of cataracts fractious infections diabetes mellitus weight gain and loss adjunctive therapies that try moderate efficacy on their own but allow patients to reduce the dosage several burden of chronic glucocorticoid. Us there is new evidence that toss eliza mad can reduce the overall steroid requirements and reduce the rate of steroid related complications in patients with giant cell arteritis which is particularly attractive as many patients elderly with osteoporosis and other vascular risk factors just diabetes. It is used if patients sort of high risk of do develop. We'll have existing risk of developing come abilities associated with chronic high dose steroid administration odd vessel giant cell. Arteritis is treated with the same agents. As medium vessel disease albeit with slightly different regiments some general considerations for treatment of giant cell arteritis. Gce with unilateral. Visual loss is a medical emergency and requires. Iv steroids followed by high dose oral steroids to prevent vision loss in the unaffected eye. It temporal entree bob. C. should be sought within two weeks but steroid treatment should not be delayed to china biopsy. It is recommended that as part of ongoing treatment patients be referred to rheumatologist for management of that condition. Often anti platelet therapies. Such as aspirin is given in order to reduce the risk in burden of thera sclerosis further. Judaic to quit use superimposed on already likely advanced age associated with occurrence. It is important that there is appropriate. Osteoporosis prevention with an initial bone density assessment prior to long term therapy and then encouragement of a high calcium diet vitamin d. Intake patients also. Need routine follow up with primary healthcare providers in order to assess efficacy as well as any other complications of glucocorticoid therapy and to screen for new symptoms. Such as opportunistic infections of the respiratory tract or urinary tract. It is important to note that the disease is a variable duration however in most patients the condition resolves within two years with appropriate treatment. Join cell arteritis generally does not detrimentally effect long term survival unless there was significant lodge vessel involvement such as that of the aorta during which dissection can occur. This is very rare in summary. Johnson arteritis is a relatively common condition and generally presents patients aged fifty to seventy years old more often women than men considerate in a patient of this age group when presenting with constitutional symptoms new onset. Headache vision changes. Joe pain oth- rogers and mileages in a setting where infection malignancy ruled out it affects medium to launch vessels of the buddy.

"cataracts" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"A jon. Gruden was gonna open that game with they ask greg roman for specific play that they could break down but the game moves fast too fast to any of that stuff. They don't have a halftime show. It seemed so they wanted to cram everything they were planning to do early on. And i knew that show would get better when they could. Just sit back and watch the game. It was cool that russell wilson kind of hung around. Yeah i think it will get better the more comfortable that they get at it but at the same time i was longing to find out how many catches as rugs have right now. Please tell me they should put a sidebar with all the stats. I mean they have to do something. They have to address the stats. It's a very good point. But i love that. First touchdown pass or second by lamar jackson which was a ridiculous play where he scrambling around runs to his right. Makes a touchdown makes touchdown throw t here peyton and breakdown. How he did that was incredible. It was fascinating to me and just the defense that was coming out of. And they're telling you before it happens. What margin do if they do this. It's just it's you have two guys who mass will one guy who has mastered the position and to hear him. Talk about that position was fascinating to me. I also thought they were way more honest in critical than they would be in abroad. Cataracts in a broadcast booth. You kind of respect to the people that you've spoken to and i think like peyton. Manning was frustrated with how the raiders played yesterday and how they handled the goal. Line situations like like you would like the. They would make him the second fall back on this. He's sitting on. I also thought that they got honesty. Out of russell. Wilson like russell. Wilson was dropped veneer for most of the end of that game. He was on throughout the fourth quarter and overtime and he was criticizing the raiders for not continuing to move forward before they kicked the field goal at the end of regulation and then suggested that. Nfl game should on penalties. My favorite part of the travis kelsey experience was peyton saying hey. Are you watching this. Game division rival. You've got the ravens next week. Are you watching for anything in specifically and he's like well you know when you got a division opponent. You play them twice. I'm looking out for a couple of things we do. We have next week. Chargers classic look ahead game on sunday. Night chiefs ravens. Did you like it winning him. It had its ups and downs. I stuck with it. Just because i ultimately was going to get more from peyton manning than i would from any other announcer like when he's and i think the thing that was unfortunate for him. Is that the game moves too quickly because he wants to like breakdown. Here's a quarterback was seeing coming off the weak side blitz and the next place already happening and that's like the thing that people realize. Nfl football is how fast that it happens. And the broadcasters are basically like becoming auctioneers. I think it's under control. But you have to make twenty eight points if you're a color commentator that's as long as you've got and peyton peyton couldn't i am absolutely here for the manning's and all the broadcasters to be replaced by auctioneers by actual auctioneers just speed through the commentary and do everything so quickly that you just have auctioneers on one channel. And the manning's goofing around on the other channel and i'll wipe out the entire broadcast species does seem like this is a tryout for one or both of them to take over right well. They were trying to get paid to do monday night. Football traditional sense and he didn't wanna do it that way they were going to pay him all manner of money. It's gonna travel guide. Mike mentioned it. Why are they in different locations payments. Go anywhere he wants to coach his kids flag football team on a saturday with eli. They don't want to go anywhere right so they're doing. They built this incredible studio for them in their houses or somewhere. That wall of television was incredible and get it their way. That is some kind of privilege for the who the white quarterbacks to get not just the broadcasting jobs but exactly on your terms because you're the manning family god bless them like. That's the way that's the way to do it. We'll stream on. Espn plus you will do it. Pay per view style. So you will make your money back from the god. I can't even imagine what they have to pay to get those guys who were in all the commercials and the face of the pocket passer that family the first family of football. I can't even. They did that all their way and they will continue to do it all their way and he doesn't want the pressure beyond the travel. He doesn't want the pressure of having to go to production meetings production meetings four game. Dan very clearly at a bunch of production meetings and things just didn't work out the way that they wanted and they stuck to the script a little bit and while it's on espn plus it's also on espn two. I wish you were just on. Espn plus because the rigidities of having to go to a break really threw a wrench into everything that they were trying to do. I do kind of agree with you. That i think this is where broadcasts are headed as a second screen supplemental experience. I don't quite enjoyed them but it needs a lot of work. This is a heavy lift or a producer. I don't need the play by. I don't need the traditional broadcast as a consumer. I don't need a voice saying second and three. He's off tackled for one. I think you don't realize how much you need it until it's gone and i i think they have it. It was gone last night. I enjoyed by missed it and he to i would miss it now. You put the stats on a scroll on the bottom. That's it. i don't need a voice saying that's his third catch of the night you know come on so many people are watching that on fantasy though. Like you've seen what this fantasy explosions. It will be on a lot of people. Also watch these games on mute like a bar like you don't really need a long as you have the graphics you can figure out what's going on you're getting analysis in in a way that's very comfortable. These guys are so relaxed from people. Russell wilson and ray lewis and travis kelsey to me that and and the two of them. They're dynamic is just funny as so for me. That was the charm of that was the entertainment portion of it for me. I'm with mike. I think i'll watch it for boring. Games are when there's not something exciting happening but as soon as the game got more exciting. I needed to hear the crowd noise. I wanted to hear the commentators. I like listening to louis riddick. Specifically i think he's really smart. And you guys are basically putting chris wittingham out of business right now saying that play by play The only reason i suck through that is because while. I like louis riddick analysis. I'm not a fan of that monday night. Team i think this is one of the weaker teams. If it was a monday night team that i enjoyed. I would've switched over a long time ago. Because there were certain aspects of people they're capturing the energy there that i miss said. I just got pete man and complaining about how loud the crowd was during The raiders offense of drives when they were ravens fans. obviously there. it was something he would've known. Well it's not sixty. One thousand raiders fans. There's ravens fans there. They travel when there's an interception at the goal line at the end of the game. Who do you want to hear from louis riddick. Russell wilson peyton. Manning brian greasy. I do think. Russell wilson is is a great value. Add to that if they can get more gas like that on the show. I totally will tune into it. I think charles barkley. And maybe travis kelsey like i hear a lot of them and other places so i won't tune in for that. But if they can get more guests like russell wilson at the end of games to actually give their honest opinion and opened up a little bit..

A lot of people are fatigued. They have very low. B twelve case. That's a big factor there vitamin a. We also need it to absorb really all of our all of our key. Fat soluble nutrients. Because we're going to absorb them in a small intestine with good bio release and again if we don't produce enough stomach. Acid were not gonna get the appropriate amount of bile flow. So we're going to end up. Not absorbing fat soluble nutrients like vitamin d vitamin a vitamin k two and vitamin e. which then raises our risk of developing things. Like macular degeneration vitamin a very important for good vision cataracts cardiovascular problems as well as Immune problems of vitamin d for example osteoporosis. Different bone issues and then protein deficiency again. We're not going to be able to oliver. Immune cells are white blood cells. That are protein-based like they're made out of proteins. We need protein in order to rebuild healthy collagen for our skin or hair or nails. Our joints our gut lining so we end up with a leaky gut. We end up with aging skin. That's aging at an accelerated rate We can end up with brittle nails thyroid issues body.

I mean if we really want to get to the source of this thing. Let's go invade. India. let's kill off the million pieces in poverty there because half the people living in poverty are always going to put us at risk for new diseases. Because they live in squalor. They're living on top of each other. They spread diseases quicker and they're able to mutate and so we knew to invade india and get rid of poor people and if we're already getting rid of poor people i'm sure there's other countries we can evade or we don't mean invade. I mean we got the nukes. We've got drones difficulty. We'll take away their key to india. Perhaps that but i mean just imagine right like you're trying to Argue that this is for the people i mean. Look it's not like as we've talked about quite a bit it's not even like they're arguing that vaccinated people can't get this thing and can't spread this. Then they can. We know this scientifically a fact. We know that vaccinated people can get the delta variant and they can spread the delta ovarian and according to fao g and the study in massachusetts and all that it seems to indicate that if vaccinated people get it they are just as likely to spread it as vaccinated.

We were remains the old right now. We've never been faster. Rolling on new initiatives. We were just crushing with all these new things like on doctor visits in our own mail order service so i just feel crazy confident and i wish the market would somehow understand that little better next one of the things that bothered me about too. Many singular names out because it may have been the pharmacist themselves but to the forms major chains was that they had it within their ability to know how much good iraq's was was charging and yet they paid me the full full freight which angered me to know in a third pharmacist. I went to and there's three of these right told me. Listen go get the good rx coupon. It'll save you thousands of dollars. I mean the system should be sending people to good rx. Well funny enough. The system actually does one of the greatest strengths that we have a decade of business. Is that doctors and pharmacists. Actually believe in good rx because they want patients to take the drugs they prescribed and they want the patient and not leave the counter frustrated. And it's very off for consumer their interaction their first interaction with cataracts is a pharmacist. Or doctor saying hey you should use this because it can help and it may even be lower than your insurance again. Commercial insurance is not what it used to be. And we're so proud again. Like with veterans gold. We have a thousand drugs for less than ten dollars. The average member six twenty six hundred dollars a year. We just had it right age expelled to so now you have over thirty thousand pharmacies. You can go to so. I think it's important that people understand that we're working.

The Tempest Stele
"This artifact is at its heart a big stone block it is a slab. It is a big slab made of cal site. That's currently in multiple fragments. I think through at least three major fragments And they were recovered from the temple complex of karnak which is in the ancient egyptian city of thebes near the modern Upper egypt city of luxor. And this artifact was recovered by archaeologists. I think in the late nineteen forties early nineteen fifties Karnak of course this big beautiful temple complex you may have seen. It represented digitally and transformers movies. Where they're big robots slugging around there or as an actual shooting location in the spy. Who loved me. Did the transformers really battle here. I think they did at some point. The transporter the it's part of the the raison d'etre of of Transformers to eventually just slam through and demolish every work of humankind like all artifacts and landscapes must be ground into sand by the transformers until only transformers remain right. Okay just a baron. Featureless earth completely smooth but with transformers with mack trucks and jeeps and stuff. But anyway. what's the deal with this slab. The tempest de originally stood about one point. Eight meters tall so about six feet tall and it bears an inscription texts that was copied on both sides in these horizontal lines. But it also has imagery at the top so to quote from One of the papers that we're going to be referencing today. I think that this description comes from this. First paper that was published by karen pollinger foster robert k. Rittner and benjamin. Our foster in the journal of near eastern studies in nineteen ninety-six quote above the horizontal body of each text is a lou net with to adore st- scenes and brief vertical labels unlike the parallel text. The tulu net labels display minor variation in wording both faces preserve dual scenes of the king followed by female deity of fecundity carrying offering trays. And these traits have like fruits and vegetables on them. So you've got this big old texts. That's on both sides in this image of a king and a lady who represents fertility Carrying up some nice foodstuffs fruits and vegetables. Nice plant matter and so here. I think maybe we should actually just read the full text of the tempus teela because it's not all that long And this is something that i personally really love. May maybe other people aren't as interested in design but it just reading the text of of texts that are this old like these. Ancient egyptian inscriptions really does kind of put me in an altered state of consciousness. You know it's like I i feel like i'm inhabiting a mind. That is so separated from me by time and culture that it's a little bit creepy. I mean to to a certain extent. That's that's exactly what's happening right. The transfer of information across the ages. Yeah and in. There's this like weird tingling down at the bottom of my brain where i just feel like. There's a lot that's really important that i'm not understanding but i'm getting just the slightest hint of what it is coming through in the translation Well that's the tingler you've got that. That's the vincent price movie. Well i know what you're talking about with okay. This english translation is by the american egyptologist. Robert honor who is the one of the authors on a couple of studies that we're going to be mentioning today now again. The steelers text is damaged. So there are some gaps and some of these have been filled in with. What is very likely what their contents were so. There's just some texts that we don't have but we feel very confident you know. This is what it would have been another parts or just left blank. Where there's less certainty and i guess when we get one of those blank spots just sort of pause for a second in the reading so here it goes long live the horace great of manifestations he of the two ladies pleasing of birth the golden horus who binds the two lands king of the upper and lower egypt.

Then his majesty said how much greater this is than the wrath of the great god than the plans of the gods then his majesty descended to his boat with his council following him while the crowds on the east and west had hidden faces having no clothing on them after the manifestation of the god's wrath then his majesty reach the interior of thebes with gold confronting gold for this statue so that he meaning on raw received that which he desired then.

Volcanoes of Life
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb, and I'm Joe McCormack in today, we're going to be talking about something that I've been thinking about doing an episode on for a while ever since I read an article while back that really interested me, and that is the surprising and kind of counterintuitive link that has been proposed by many geologists now between life as we know it. It on earth and the fires of Mount Doom, specifically, the the most violent and scary of geologic processes like volcanic eruptions on the movement of tectonic plates. Yeah. This is a great topic to get into. We kind of had a I guess a preamble to this a couple of episodes ago when we were talking about eggs and we talked about the volcano birds and the idea of a volcano being seeming. Almost. Paradoxically to be something that can nourish. As opposed to something. That's just a purely destructive force. Oh, I. didn't think about that comparison at all. But yeah, the the way that the volcanic sand babysits the egg for for the megapode so that it can just run off and do its own thing. Yeah. Raised by a volcano. But so I thought a great place to start here might be with a brief reading from volusia. It is a famous old norse epic poem from the collection that is known as the Poetic Edda. Now, this is a synonymous work. The author is unknown, but the volusia tells the story of the norse Gods culminating in their destruction in the fiery doom of Ragnarok can I'm just GonNa read a couple of Quad trains here. In Anger Smites, the water of the earth forth from their homes must all men flee nine paces fares the son of Jurgen and slain by the serpent fearless. He sinks the Sun. Turns Black Earth sinks in the see the hot stores down from heaven or world fierce gross. The steam and the life feeding flame till fire leaps high about heaven, itself Nice and one fun thing about this poem. It's bit of Tolkien Trivia Robert Tell me if you've heard this before, but the name of the wizard Gandalf that first appeared in Tolkien's. Tolkien's the Hobbit and then of course, the best character in Lord of the Rings, the name of Gandalf comes from the Veloce token, actually borrowed the name from a section known as the tally of the dwarves from this epic poem. Originally, he was going to apply it to the character in the Hobbit, who became thorn oaken shield the leader of the Dwarf Party. But then he decided later on that, it made more sense to apply the name of Gandalf. The wizard. I think because again, Dal means something like magic staff l.. and. I think he made the right choice like, Gandalf. That makes more sense for the wizard than for Thorin. Think. So but cool thing that happens in this poem sort of part of the RAGNAROK. Myth is that there is a rebirth that follows this fiery doom know after the fire leaps high heaven and the Kingdom of the Gods is destroyed. Earth is not just left in cinders instead, there is a renewal from the fire and the author writes now do I see the earth new Rizal Green from the waves again, the cataracts fall and the Eagle flies and And Fish, he catches beneath the cliffs. So there's this great link between Fiery Cataclysm and rebirth and renewal of life in norse mythology, and and of course, you know these are symbolic elements. I'm not suggesting that they had some kind of scientific insight with this is something that I think is taken as a metaphor largely about human life itself, but coincidentally, it ends up kind of ringing true with things. We're finding out about geology and nature. Well, it's something you see in a lot of different mythological cycles, right I. mean you see it in Hindu mythology? In. Various. American mythologies. Thinking about. Meslin. South America in particular society that things will rise things will fall that there will be cataclysm that whole world will be destroyed, but new worlds will rise out of them and have risen out of them before. Yeah. I was thinking about themes of fiery eruption in the greening of the earth together or sort of a creator destroyer duality. One that came to my mind that that I thought, you might know something about because I know I've heard you talk about Hawaiian mythology before was the Palay myth. Yeah. Yeah. The Hawaiian got his Palay is an interesting example, a deity of fire and Volkan Ism I was reading a book titled Pay Volcano Goddess. Goddess of Hawaii by H are low nemo, and he points out that when Polynesian voyagers I arrived in Hawaii, they brought their gods with
How long can we all follow strict social distancing orders?
"I thought that I could say I'm speaking for everyone in the country. When I say social distancing sucks but I know it's necessary and we will get through it. I thought I could say about for everybody but apparently not we. Have you know a bunch of Yahoos? Open the front Queens Park sitting there protesting that the place has opened. That's breaking the law and putting everyone in jeopardy putting themselves in jeopardy putting the workers in jeopardy and God forbid one of them end up in the hospital down the street now. I'm as mad as Ontario Premier. Doug Fortius at those people who choose to show up for protests and float the rules. But I'm also concerned about the bigger picture about more than a couple of hundred eightieths. I'M WORRIED. The protests like this are evidence of cracks in the dam. Because I know I can feel it that the weather will get warmer and this will get harder and the numbers will go. Down and more people will be receptive to the message. Maybe not the protest message but the idea that it's okay to bend the rules and so they'll ban them and other people will see them do it. And that's how this whole strategy starts to fall apart. Here's the thing though. There's a limit to what people can take and well. Yes fine. Those idiot protesters as much as you want. You also can't tell people but they can't sit on their porches. We chat with their neighbors. When the weather's Nice can't tell them the can't take a walk in the park not forever. So where is the right balance? How much social distancing can we take collectively without cracking and when some of us do cave and break the rules and everyone sees it? What happens to the whole? We're all in this together part of the effort. What message should governments be sending people right now to keep them focused on the task at hand but also give them enough hope to hold on? We'll ask somebody who specializes in human behavior in a crisis as soon as claire brings us up to date on everything. That's happened with cove nineteen in Canada this weekend. We are expecting this week to hear more from provinces including Ontario and Quebec on how they plan to ease restrictions around Kovic nineteen in the coming weeks but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says. None of the plans involve immunity passports. Because they're still no proof that those who recover from the virus can't become infected again a Manitoba plans on ramping up surgeries that were postponed because of cove in nineteen. This is because the number of cases in the province remains low so some non urgent surgeries including cataract and orthopedic will start taking place this week. In Ontario the Education Minister says all publicly funded schools will remain closed until at least may thirty first is as the online learning will continue and that the province does not see a need right now to extend the school year as of Sunday evening. Forty six thousand eight hundred and ninety five cases of cove nineteen in Canada with two thousand six hundred and seventy three deaths Jordan. He threw in this. Is the Big Story Carolyn? Macdonald harker is a sociologist at Mount. Royal University in Calgary also the director of the Center for Community Disaster Research which is relevant today obviously Dr McDonald Harker. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. My first question is just as somebody who observes behavior. How would you say Canadians in general are doing in terms of compliance with social distancing measures? I think overall as a General Rule Canadians are quite compliant. I know there's a stereotype about Canadians being very polite but along with thought I definitely would say that. We are more conformist. There's more a sense of collectively in Canada and collaboration and so historically and even today during the current pandemic I would definitely say that there is a desire and a willingness to sort of abide by these regulations that were being given by government and health officials. That's interesting would you say that kind of changes nation to nation or by geographic area? How do you find that various absolutely if you look at human behavior it is definitely influenced by culture and social interactions so you look at perhaps some European countries we know when we've seen in the media that they had to implement Stricture enforcement because of the way in which people interact so Italy. For example there was a tendency not to necessarily follow some of the physical distancing regulations and so their government had to move to a much stricter regulations. And sort of you. Know a stricter lockdown You look at you know our neighbors the United States right next to us. You know. There's definitely the sense of independence and individualism and so some regions you know had more difficulty with some of these physical distancing regulations of and you still look at at the climate. You know when you compare Canada the to the US and how we're taking it very seriously here and you know you hear a lot of people in the US saying well. I can't believe so many stores are closed down. It's business as usual here. So there definitely are a cultural differences in the various regions and countries. So in our case then We've been at this for six weeks and we're doing fairly well in terms of compliance. How long Could you usually expect that to continue like even Canada would certainly have a breaking point? Probably right absolutely and that's a great question. Because I think at the beginning we definitely recognized. It was a global health pandemic. We saw that it was affecting other countries and we took it really seriously. We recognize that there are severe implications for older and vulnerable people and that they were very real so we were fortunate enough to see other countries experiences and I think that made a lot of people here in Canada. Take it more seriously You know and there is a lot of of fearfulness and uncertainty out there which has been really tangible. Now in the first few weeks were very compliant. Of course you know. The first week or two there was a bit of hesitation. There was a bit of disbelief. There was some denial But after that people really settled in and recognized that we needed to do this not only for our own health and safety but thought of other individuals especially those who are vulnerable but there is a point where we might start to see. That people aren't taking it as seriously as before and this is often referred to as crisis fatigue and this just refers simply to becoming immune to warnings from government and health officials and oftentimes. It's a result of you know this constant fear that's associated with repeated repeated warnings about the pandemic. And usually you see that start to set in at about you. Know the six seven eight week mark Where people are really starting to think about. Can I do this long term? And more importantly what are the impacts on my mental health? That was going to be. My next question is is there a point where The mental health costs become worse than the risk right. Absolutely and you know we've been talking a lot about the physical health implications and of course that's important right. We want to make sure that people remain healthy and I think everybody understands that but the other side of the coin that we haven't talked a lot about is what are the mental health implications of cutting people off from their interactions with other people and their connections. We are by nature social beings and we cannot survive without contact with other individuals and without Having interactions with them and we found you know many novel ways of communicating people are doing zoom parties or having worked meetings through other means of technology and I think it was new and novel at the beginning and people were excited about it but people are starting to grow weary of sitting at home and not being able to go out and talk with people and connect with them and it is having an impact on their mental health. It is taking a tool and we need to talk about that. We need to take into consideration because we have to look at you. Know what are the lives that were saving by continuing to practice? Isolation versus what are some of those long term impacts and we know in my field that there will be an increase in things like domestic violence child abuse divorce mental health issues like PTSD depression anxiety. So I think it's important to look at it holistically and weighed the benefits versus the risks. And not not necessarily conversations. We've had in the past. Were starting to have those conversations and I think they're definitely important points and issues to discuss when you do that. Research that you mentioned. Did you kind of find a timeline at which I guess maybe explain this wrong but those axes cross and it does become a much worse for long-term mental health to do it versus the danger is there.

closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Addicted To Sugar? This Doctor Says It's 'The New Tobacco'
"Food there's a teaspoon of sugar and every table spoon of ketchup our next guest says on food is been adulterated poisoned and he's not kidding he says sugar plays a central role in health problems including an epidemic of obesity in infants as young as six months that it's as dangerous as smoking or abuse of alcohol and if you doing The New York Times seven day sugar challenge they say even grapes and bananas have too much sugar Dr Robert listing is professor of pediatric and technology at the university of California San Francisco Dr rod of people no sugar is in health food why is it so dangerous well so people think that sugar is just empty calories and they think well you get some discretionary calories during the day so why can't they be sugar well if sugar we're just calories then they'd be right except they're wrong because different calories in foods are burned and of the absorb digestive metabolized in different ways and do different things and contribute to different diseases so I just want underscore what you said because the rule has always been calories in calories out you've got to burn it off somewhere in the middle and you are saying again that is not true what do sugar calories do right so why are sugar calories so different well they're different for three reasons the first is when sugar is absorbed it goes to the liver and the liver gets overwhelmed because it has a limited capacity to metabolize it just like it has a limited capacity metabolize alcohol just like it has a limited capacity to metabolize many of the toxins that we take in you know because your liver is the detoxification center of your body it has a limited capacity for being able to deal with sugar when you overwhelm it the liver has no choice but to take the access and turn it into a liver fat and that liver fat is the driver of virtually every chronic disease that we are now currently suffering from that's gone up in time so type two diabetes liver problems hypertension cardiovascular disease cancer dementia non alcoholic fatty liver disease poly cystic ovarian disease all being driven by liver fat in the liver fat is because of the ship and so you can basically have alcoholic fatty liver disease if your over twenty one we can of non alcoholic fatty liver disease and it doesn't make a difference because they are identical and so we have done several liver transplants in soda drinkers you know teenagers soda drinkers transplants the insidiousness of sodas and I got a you know this is why I am one of those people I pride myself I don't drink coffee but I picked up a little bit of a soda habit and it's just appalling to think of how well and it's an addiction it's not it's an addiction and you know anybody who says you know I have this horrible sweet tooth that's sugar addiction yeah so sugar is objective in the same way as alcohol in the same way as nicotine cocaine amphetamine heroin shopping gambling social media internet **** all of these stimulate the same area of the brain called the reward center the nucleus accumbens anything that causes the release of dopamine is in the extreme addictive well when you call this the coca Cola conspiracy because you say it's not by accident it's not just that there's a ton of caffeine added to this so it is that makes you then Pete pardon my in elegance they also add salt so the combination makes you thirsty ear so you drink read more exactly so they know what they're doing do you have to put salt in coke there used to be a Cola called royal crown Cola didn't have any salt in it the coca Cola knocked them out of the park but the fact is you don't have to put salt and soda so this is by design well and then fructose was sold to us as more natural sugar it's this is in you know corn and beats and and and such but as you point out one of things I do is I think does which is added to just about everything is stripped the fiber out of it so that has a longer shelf life so it has absolutely none of that benefit and why is from toes as bad as sugar so first of all sugar is two molecules down together glucose and fructose now glucose is not all that bad so great but it's not that bad however fructose because it is metabolized into that liver fat in the liver that's where the problem comes in in addition structures starts the aging reaction it causes what we call caramelization it's the reason for wrinkles is the reason for cataracts this aging reaction this Browning reaction and fructose does it seven times faster than glucose and now we have learned through work done at Joslin diabetes center that truck tows specifically inhibits the mitochondrial enzyme that causes those mitochondria to burn less well which probably is one of the reasons for the persistent weight gain and also chronic disease and the glucose doesn't do that so there are some very specific differences between these two molecules however when you consume any form of sugar whether it's sucrose which is table sugar cane sugar beet sugar the stuff you put your coffee or high fructose corn syrup or honey where maple syrup Oregon eight doesn't matter you are getting one of each molecule and soak sugar is a problem because of the fructose molecules look we we have just a couple minutes left I urge people to watch your lecture but you try a direct line from the state we're in today to the health industry and the government may nineteen eighty two we were told to cut out fats and so everybody went to cards and of course cars are filled with all the sugar that you're talking about and by the way obesity went off when we cut out fats and went to cards you go back to Nixon in the early nineteen seventies who there was a political crisis food was too expensive he directed his agriculture department to cheapen it which they did by adding a lot of these you know corn syrup products you call for hello Sir yeah you called **** toes poison and one would ask why would our own FDA regulated poison well one of our biggest exports is our food of course the food industry pushes back on the your claims in the claims of others but people know what they can see with their own eyes they don't feel well they see their children are overweight a lot of people our age are doing things like The New York Times seven day sugar challenge trying to cut back the first day you know sugar at breakfast how would you help people do this given that it is so addictive and it is so everywhere right so I will be very honest with you we will not solve this problem until the food industry solves it for us and they have no interest in doing so because this is their gravy train this is their job or this is how they went from one percent gross profit margin two five percent gross profit margin in the span of three decades this is their livelihood and they're not gonna do anything they don't have to do and unfortunately the governments in bed with them because they're making fifty six billion dollars a year off export tariffs off our food so the only way we are going to fix this problem is when there are more votes than dollars and right now we're just beginning to you know get some traction in the general public for this issue of food having said that people need to understand what the problem is they don't have to understand the difference between processed food and real food and the difference is processed food is high sugar low fiber hi sugar for palatability low fiber for shelf life real food is low sugar high fiber real food works processed food doesn't process food kills because of these issues and we could repeat could fix this tomorrow if we want to ship the problem is because sugar is addictive people don't want to he one of the saddest things in your lecture is you talk about children who have the serious health issues now that are traced to the juices that they're given and these are low income children the juices come to them to the government wick program exactly right it's going to be tough for you to see those children impossible it's you know breaks your heart you know the fact of matter is these kids are victims and we know who the perpetrators are and the fact is you know the the parents don't understand and so it promulgates itself you know the fact is what mothers eight during pregnancy ultimately impact on the number of fat cells children born wish and those vessels wanna get filled so these kids didn't have a chance even before they were born never mind afterwards I mean how do you blame a six month old for obesity in fact the matter is we have a problem and we have to address it and no one
Eat Your Way to Health
"You've been listening to dishing up nutrition for a few years. You're well aware that you can you you can use food to help manage any chronic health condition really. My clients offered report that after being on real food eating plan their cholesterol numbers go back into normal range. Their joint pain eases their blood pressure drops. They're diabetic numbers improve and their muscle. Muscle aches and pains. Go Away. The bottom line is this real food eating plan. Can it can work miracles on nutritional at Nutritional Herschel weight and wellness we always say what are we say. Food matters food matters but sadly I think many people pay attention to what they eat in the Howard is they don't pay attention to what they're eating and how it affects not only their body but their brain right and I found that when I work with clients if they're knee pain goes away after they stop up eating sugar and process carbs. They will usually give up. Those sweet treats or those things that caused that pain. They quickly learned that. Only a few bites of a muffin or or their favorite cookies. BEF- will cause that knee pain to return this gives them a really strong reminder. That eating sugar hurts them. I mean it's a physical hurt. They can they can feel if they eat it and feel it and although sugar is sweet and Yummy it is not their friend and what I find rather interesting though is that somehow many people with diabetes or prediabetes don't connect how processed carbs and sugar so foods that come from bags or boxes or those the center aisles of the grocery store how those processes carbs and sugar affect their blood blood sugar numbers or their a one C levels. Sugar is still hurting their body. But it's a different kind of hurt. It's a slow breakdown of their body and their brain rain if a client eats a muffin and they get knee pain. They get that immediate feedback. But if that muffin POPs up their blood sugar to one forty one six st or even two hundred people are not aware of the damage being done to the Kennedys and the their heart. Because they don't feel it. You don't feel high blood edge sugar like you feel knee pain he no. It's really like the the frog in the pot on the stove. Heat it very slowly. The FROG has no realization that their he's being he's being killed slowly rain. That's sort of our situation as we eat. And we incorporate these foods at present over a one hundred million people have prediabetes. They've been told over and over the leading cause of type. Two diabetes is eating excess sugar and flour but they continue to choose muffins and bread over meat vegetables. And good fat. You Know Teresa as I. I was reading the book the Case Ace against sugar by Gary Tabs. I found a little excerpt that I thought was appropriate for this Topic and he says as we become e- ever more insulin. Resistance and glucose intolerant as our blood sugar gets higher along with our insulin levels. As our blood pressure elevates and we get fatter we are more likely to be diagnosed as diabetic and manifest the diseases and conditions that associated with diabetes. These include not not just heart disease by Gout Cancer Alzheimer's and a cluster of Western diseases. But all the conditions typically perceived Lebed as complications of diabetes such as vascular disease lead to strokes dementia and kidney disease retinopathy linus cataracts plaque deposits and the arteries of the heart Leading to heart attacks or the legs and feet leading to amputations neuropathy all of these are are connected to how much sugary eating. Yeah and you think sure. It's just so innocent. It's so sweet and simple and delicious. Yes yeah it's so true that we continue to choose these processed foods over meat vegetables and good fats. And it's very unfortunate that these kinds of foods those processed foods foods are so addicting to most of us. Maybe not everybody but I would say the good majority of us as humans. We see him. hardwired hired to pick sugar laden foods over vegetables and of course the food manufacturers are keenly aware that a product will sell better when sugar was added to it so for example think of pickles even dough pickles. That don't taste sweet. If you go to the grocery store and you just kind of pick up a jar of any major braniff pickles. You'll usually find sugar or high fructose Corn Syrup in the label. Isn't that crazy. Yeah it's crazy because this isn't a sweet food so it makes makes you wonder. Is this how we build brand loyalty. is it that there is just enough sugar. Maybe we don't taste it. There's just enough sugar there to tickle our brain because we know it so addictive And there's other foods like that too. I mean just go through the aisles. We have spaghetti sauce or peanut butter. You know those those those hidden sugars that overtime it all build up and people will say well. It doesn't taste delicious and I to switch to these brands at don't Chagrin. I'm I'm like if you give your your palate two to three weeks. He'll switch over and you don't have those addicted. Pay a taste buds. So there's so many books and excerpts telling people oh how to eat their way back to better health but there are also a lot of mixed messages with unrealistic expectations so often people will say if the excerpts if the experts spurts can't agree. I'll just eat whatever I want right most likely. It's something high in sugar. It's a cop out really really and it's just a really nice excuse for us not really whatever we want right. Well the experts category. So why don't we just have the sugar. Yeah it's a justification honestly that we we can just eat whatever we want to eat because if they can agree. I'll just whistle. Pass the graveyard. Yes well well. You are listening to dishing up nutrition if you have type two diabetes cholesterol issues heart disease or cancer and you currently eat the standard American Diet. The sad diet we recommend recommend upgrading. Your food choices. It begins with the belief that you are worth it. You are worth eating better to better your
Global stocks hit record as rally enters new year, dollar rebounds
"We kick things off with a record starts at twenty twenty Z.. Of Green on Wall Street today the SNP the Dow and Nasdaq all all closing at all. Time highs should investors. Just keep writing this record wave or or is it time for a new strategy for a New Year. Steve Grosso. What's his thank? You look tight and be happy what we need to do. I think you can't buy all. Traders are not back until Monday. This is still a holiday week so think about what worked last year. That's what worked today. Tech Industrials actually ripping today communications nations ripping today. So I do think you can sit back. But beware sell off Q one. Dan Does that. Does that. Sound a little ironic the way to say that in a little a little pets but yes yes you do have an opportunity to buy a dip in Q. You're saying the last time I was here. You were saying basically the same thing. Beware the ides of March basic. Or something like that. Yeah I I mean. At least it's not particularly healthy to have these mega cap names Microsoft apple double the performance of the SNP on the opening day of the year. It'd probably doesn't get much better than I don't mean that they're not going to go up further from here but that concentration of those mega caps has been an issue right there increasingly if you looked at what apple did obviously going to three hundred today. What did the S. and P. Five hundred the last hour a day it kind of drag it up here so that sort of performance reminds me a little bit about what worked in late December? Two thousand seventeen teen into two thousand in eighteen and we had five hundred Nasdaq up eight percent as we headed into the bulk of q four earnings in the last week of January so these sorts of setups are really treacherous and a lot of ways for a lot of investors. Because if you didn't do a whole heck of a lot in a year like last year when the SNP was up twenty eight percent. You didn't do anything basically to reduce your risk. You're going to start thinking about it now but to these points if everything is going to continue to work until we have a reason to sell and that may not be until earnings. It's kind of hard to get out of the way in in the meantime. We've we climbed a wall of worry Karen in two thousand nineteen that was basically defined by trade now. Looks like there has been a breakthrough on trade. Maybe that wall of worry is still there. But maybe it's not a steep as it was. Maybe it's not a state. I mean we have a supposed date for signing of the first of the phase. He's one whichever that is. I don't even know I don't even know what's in IT I. I'm not that impressed knows what's in it secret deal. It's very secret and we may never know what's in it so I'm a little skeptical on that clearly. If there were troubles there and that didn't happen we would see a big down in the market but I mean Dan touched on. When when Apple's up on no no news that I saw today no news apple is now worth you know however many billion dollars more? That's scary to me. I do own it a little nervous about it because when you have a big run up into earnings the bar is higher and higher and they could if they keep running up like this and have a blowout quarter still might not be enough to sustain where it is now so I hate when the market moves like this on New China. You're starting to see you might see a little bit of a multiple expansion with apple boy. I know it's value personal fanatic. I it's been it's been deserved. The mix of the businesses definitely totally get everything. Bring everything everything that would worry you and Dan said it to in the past. It is still a hardware company but when you look at services and that number at forty six billion when you look at streaming dreaming all along with that and everything else that seems to be clicking that to me means further multiple expansion. I wouldn't be nervous about it. We saved the guest for less this. I think I agree. Today is kind of a vacation day. I mean it's a pseudo vacation day. Most people aren't sitting at their desks. The terrifically believe that's the Tel is at. Nobody's here in midtown trading. The moment of reckoning comes next week and Armato so we track a variety of predictive signals and our best short term predictive signal is earnings revisions. And what we're noticing is that earnings as revision downward and upward revisions over the last thirty days and actually that revision ratio is trending way below average. which is never a good sign for the next next couple of months performance? So I think we're GONNA see an up year again. Nothing like last year. Be Too much to expect that you would have a year like this year. I think kind of I. I don't know what gets us there. Maybe if interest rates go to zero or negative and there is literally no place to go except the S. and P. Five hundred hundred. Maybe we get another blockbuster year but I do think that the first quarter is going to be a little bit messier remember. Oh seven Oh eight. That was that were the two big back actor back years here. Made a really good point. I think piggybacking on what to do just said you know when you go you have this big run into earning season expectations really high. It sets up as a differ for difficult setup. And I'll just say this if your management of a company and you realize that your stock price dramatically benefited from multiple expansion the prior year when you did not have meaningful earnings this growth. And now you're GonNa Guide for Twenty Twenty in the next few weeks you're likely to be a bit more conservative than you would otherwise because the pain that you will feel if you get that wrong right if you actually give overly aggressive guidance and then not only do miss but then you have to guide down again for the full year. That's how stocks get put in penalty boxes Maria the role. So I I just think that idea of conservative guidance for at least the first half of two thousand twenty especially as we don't know what is in that trade deal and when in phase two comes that will continue to be a headwind leak at least on management how they think about cataracts in the first half I said Oh seven Oh eight. I'm older than I thought I was thinking. Ninety seven thousand nine hundred ninety. Those were big back to back. Six or seven. Were good years. We're ninety six and seven ninety eight. The Russian decorations racist in August six ninety seven where the big
The 2019 ozone hole is the smallest on record since its discovery, but there’s a catch
"In a rare event the ozone hole over Antarctica is the smallest it's been since its discovery the whole forms every year when colder temperatures caused the ozone layer to thin out well CNN reports the whole usually rose in September and October but this time it actually shrank to the smallest it's been on record and that's good news but scientists say because of unusually warm temperatures it's not necessarily a sign that the ozone is on a fast track to recovery the ozone layer is the part of our atmosphere that sort of like sunscreen it blocks true violet rays from hitting the planet surface so it stops us from getting things like skin cancer and cataracts scientists think the Antarctic ozone will recover back to levels seen in the nineteen eighties around the year twenty seventy
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): A Top Surgeon on What You Need to Know
"As occupational plastic surgeons were training was an ophthalmology right so I did you know everyone does it preliminary enter near and then you do three years of ophthalmology training and then in the ophthalmology training you're kind of you know all the cataracts retina staff and then quickly if you're opulent plastics you realize you don't really want to be in the I want to be on the outside and so there's actually Seven sub specialties that come out of ophthalmology which is crazy until oculus plastics after there's only twenty fellowships in the nation per year ear for a supper which is the American Society of opthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery and so they train twenty dollars a year and it's a two year old the ship and it's very very hard to get into and then once you're in it's actually like super super rigorous training because you learn full face cosmetic surgery and in certain fellowships even you not Ryan classes I'd I think there's like everyone has their limitation than you have to like start to understand I'm like okay if you want to commit yourself to something commit yourself to one thing and be really good at it so that's what I've done outside of injectables they've kind of committed myself the plastic surgery of the is in Browse and obviously lower leads are included so that's my bread and butter for cosmetic surgeries eyelid lessons. going back to your question about medical versus cosmetic yes you can do medically but you have to kind of pass a certain number of tests so the first thing insurance companies are pictures and so we take pictures with the browse really relaxed because what happens is when the is to get really droopy everyone sorts recruit affair browse and you see these people walking with their brows lifted all the time and not actually fatigue after a while like over the course of the day how long can you do that and so the insurance nobody wants to see that with the browse relax the eyelids droop enough and then you have to do it's called a visual field to show your insurance company that you cannot see a certain percentage of your peripheral vision and if you missed that twenty degree a superior prefer vision or superior peripheral vision get then you basically get insurance to say yes this is affecting the quality of your life takes a lot to get there at all I'm telling you for since I was a little girl my dad would hold one hand and hold his hands up but finally he got there anyway so if we are but this is something that not just okay my father in his seventies needs yes this is something that's becoming really popular especially worldwide with a lot of young people who want to be certain LID LID so in my mind yeah approaching the Foro and the four five I always said slow and steady tweaks yeah so you don't all of a sudden look brand new yes oh in my mind I'm like that's next for me to slightly you do the do the lead yeah and I started with under I but that would be my next investments is you have more of a hooded I did and I did a lash perm to like lift my Flash House and I did that truly to cover the hood to create like almost like a diffused richness yes we didn't look so droopy into open up my I yeah and I just didn't I forgot my eyelashes along ends guys lashes are longer than I look like bat wings as their amazement yes but I really did it to hide the drew gas of my lead yeah so who other than rhyme because like you know we have our own brand of cry who are the people who are coming in and coming to you about eyelid lift yes so people always will say well I'll just wait until insurance covers at night always remind that's GonNa take a very long time for your eyelids get bad enough for insurance to cover it because it basically has to push down the skin has to be so significant that has to push down the islet think of a Sharpei yet it really is right right let me tell you if you think you want it done start saving so most of the time you know the complex of the Actual eyelid the skin over the eyelid and the brow right you really have to break those three apart so the patients that come in to see me are they have one or all three so either they have a toast us which means that the actual eyelid is droopy right and they can also have what's called a mechanical Tosa because the skin is so significant that it's pushing down on the eyelid and its wing down but if you were to lift or remove the skin the island isn't droopy and not as called the skin itself being droopy and heavy is called dramatically says and I'm giving you these fancy words but for a reason and then there's something called eyebrow toasts which means that the brow is droopy so you have to look at all three of those things where my patients either have a droopy eyelid and or excess skin and or a droopy brow until you don't have to get it so you don't have to do surgery when it's bad enough could basically do it and I recommend doing it before it gets bad enough because you don't want it to be medically necessary this is a cosmetic procedure that really changes the entire face so the studies that have been done when they do cosmetic procedures on one part of the face show time and time again that the most powerful the procedure is rejuvenation of the I. Right Right and so if you're able to open up the eyes eyebrow eyelid your face changes and then the reverse so that is if you botched the eyelid it's the one thing that makes people look different right so Kenny Rogers Renee Zellweger are very good exam bowls of people who've had eyelid surgery and they've changed and what happens is that the eyelid crease which is the natural fold of the eyelid is an unnatural aw in Caucasians and Non Asians I should say everyone has a really predominant pretty Eyelid crease Asians very predominant pretty eyelid crease but it's usually lower right and so you have to recognize the natural eyelid crease if you change it people will lose their mind right there clay completely different and one thing to consider we've always spoken to people about making I'm sure you're going to a trained professional Because there can be complications I know that if they take too much meaning you can actually not be able to shut your eyes wrecked that sounds like a horrific horrific I took a flight to by two and had to sit near a woman or that happened to chief Elie no people fall asleep on your shoulder I thought she wasn't asleep
