    Diabetes Late Nite Inspired by Maxwell

    in Health

    We're talking about diabetic macular edema with musical inspiration from Maxwell. 
    Along with fellow musicians D'Angelo and Erykah Badu, Maxwell has been credited with helping to shape what has been termed the "neo soul" movement that rose to prominence during the late 1990s
    Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is an accumulation of fluid in the macula-part of the retina that controls our most detailed vision abilities-due to leaking blood vessels. In order to develop DME, you must first have diabetic retinopathy.
    Diabetic retinopathy is caused by damage to the blood vessels in the tissue at the back of the eye (retina). Poorly controlled blood sugar is a risk factor. Early symptoms include floaters, blurriness, dark areas of vision, and difficulty perceiving colors. Blindness can occur.
    Guests include singer Alfa Anderson, Diabetic Macular Edema patient Maryanne Kass, Artist Bryce Chisholm, the Charlie's Angels of Outreach, Poet Lorraine Brooks and Mama Rose Marie. Throughout the podcast we will be featuring selected songs from several of several of Maxwell's albums courtesy of SONY Music.

    Dr. Michelle Eagan; The Importance of Post-Surgical Recovery

    in Health

    Many agree that recovering from a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is not always easy, but is the current trend of doctors turning to overnight nursing care to help their patients recover better, also ultimately benefitting the surgeon as well as the patient?  The answer is Yes! San Francisco Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon, Michelle M. Eagan, MD, says that for many of her patients sending them home with a 24 hour round-the-clock RN is often necessary. Dr. Eagan says it can dramatically reduce many of the minor problems that can rapidly snowball into a significant medical crisis, and ultimately impact the patient’s surgical result. Dr. Eagan, a highly-qualified aesthetic plastic surgeon, is the developer of the 3-D Mommy Makeover and the Secret Makeover which includes feminine rejuvenation.  In this interview with Aesthetic Insider™ Radio, Dr. Eagan discusses top tips to faster recovery from surgery, and how to determine when it’s necessary to send a qualified nurse home with a patient.
