Being married to someone newly diagnosed with diabetes increases chances of having the disease, says study
Diabetes may be a more familiar disease than previously thought! The increase in the chances of having the disease when you have a family history was more than proven. However, a new study found a greater chance of having the problem when a spouse had also been diagnosed.
The relationship was noted in a study presented at the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association on June 6, conducted by a researcher at Emory University in the United States. To reach this conclusion, more than 3 million people were retrieved from the Kaiser Permanente Northern California database.
First, they estimated how many cases were newly diagnosed with diabetes. Then they checked how many spouses of these people had been diagnosed with the picture the previous year. Finally, these numbers were compared with data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Women who were married to men newly diagnosed with diabetes had a 90% higher risk of developing the condition. Of course, the study contains flaws, some experts have pointed out that it does not take into account people's body mass index (BMI), since obesity alone is already a major risk factor for diabetes. However, it is important to show how the environmental factor is also important for the development of the disease.
It is increasingly difficult to find someone who is satisfied with one's own body, but the great obstacle occurs when being overweight ceases to be just a matter of vanity and becomes health problem. According to the latest survey carried out by the Ministry of Health, more than half of the Brazilian population has a BMI above that considered ideal - between 18.
The term BIRADS is an acronym for Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System , that is, it is an international systematization for mammary evaluation, interpretation of the examination and making reports of breast imaging specifically for the breast. This classification should be applied in the mammography, mammographic and nuclear magnetic resonance reports of the breasts and assures greater reliability to the examination.

- Have you ever noticed that over the years, your quality of sleep may have diminished? Often we believe it is the day-to-day concerns, or we think our body needs less rest as the years go by. But a new study by the University of California at Berkeley indicates otherwise. We sleep less as we age, because our brain develops mechanisms that inhibit our ability to sleep.
