"Perhaps with the initial round of genetic testing, there wasn't something specific identified if there are any additional genetic factors that may predispose them to disease because one of the things that's very difficult with AOL s that. It's such a wide spectrum of presentation, the way people present or how aggressive the disease might be. So trying to figure out, can we identify specific groups of people in how the disease might evolve over time so that you can target the therapies to specific groups of people because right now treating such a very presentation of you know. How people might present with diseases very difficult with a single treatment. You don't know if the treatment you're giving is going to cover everybody or to be more precise with how you're administering those treatments. So it's an unusual difficult disease but what usually causes death in patients with a L. S. and it must be very difficult end of life sort of scenario it is and it really it's up, it's the respiratory dysfunction. So breathing. Because the breathing muscles are affected as well and so it's usually a complication related to that that leads to death. Will there ever be a cure? Over very hopeful in the field again, there's a lot of active areas of research, and so we hope that s continued therapies come on the market and we understand more of the mechanism of what causes the disease that we can achieve a cure, but it will take some time. So right now you've got to drugs plus one that you can give as spinal tap, which some promise you got occupational therapy physical therapy family support. So you've got a lot.

High MDC. Williams for the Male Clinic News Network more women should be screened for cervical cancer. A Mayo Clinic Study published in the Journal of Women's health shows the percentage of women who are screened for cervical cancer may be far lower than national data suggests less than two thirds of women ages thirty to sixty FI- were up to date with cervical cancer screenings in two thousand, sixteen the percentage is even lower for Women Ages Twenty one to twenty nine with just over half current on screenings those figures are well below the eighty-one percent screening compliance rate self reported in the two thousand fifteen national health interview, Survey Family Medicine Specialist, and Lead Author of the Study Dr. Kathy mcglaughlin says these cervical cancer screening rates are unacceptably low and that routine screening every three years with a PAP test or every five years with PAP HP CO test ensures pre-cancerous changes are caught early and may be followed more closely or treated in addition to lower-than-expected screening rates. Mayo Clinic researchers also found racial inequalities in terms of who is getting screened Dr. McLaughlin says, African American women were fifty percent less likely to be up to date on cervical cancer screening than white women in two, thousand, sixteen and Asian women were nearly thirty percent less likely than white women to be current on screening. She says, these racial disparities are especially concerning and that these study results should. Prompt healthcare providers to start considering new ways of reaching out to patients to help ensure they get screened, and now let's talk about working in that workout for many people no matter how great the idea of working out on a regular basis sounds a hectic life always seems to get in the way Danny Johnson, a wellness physical therapist with the Mayo Clinic.

So don't ever tell yourself well, only ten minutes ten minutes is great. Johnson says the key is changing the way people think of a workout and finding ways to work. Exercises into a normal day you don't necessarily have to always get to the gym. So take a walk with a friend for a meeting instead of sitting at a conference table or something like that. She also suggests parking farther away from a destination rather than in the closest spot to get a few extra steps in she says, if you're in the office, you have ten minutes before your next meeting, you can move do some lunges stretches or walk up some stairs. The main thing she says is not to make workouts and all or nothing activity if you don't have an hour to go to the gym, so just get moving for the Mayo. Clinic network I'm Vivian Williams.
