New Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Looks at 16 Unfortunate Longterm Effects of Alcoholism

(PRWEB) December 05, 2014

In a new eye-opening blog post, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is looking at 16 unfortunate longterm affects of alcoholism.

Across the country, nearly 17 million adults are dependent on alcohol or have alcohol-related problems, and each year 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes that are wholly preventable, commented Best Drug Rehabilitations Per Wickstrom. We hope that our new blog post will make it extremely clear to those who think that consuming excess alcohol either chronically or through binge drinking is somehow safe. The truth is that its not just dangerous, but it can be fatal.

According to the new Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, 16 unfortunate effects of alcoholism include:

1. An increased risk of serious cancers, including mouth, throat, breast, rectum or colon cancer.

2. An increased risk of liver disease, such as hepatitis or cirrhosis.

3. An increased risk of heart disease, which can include hypertension and stroke.

4. Malnutrition as a result of being satiated by empty calories rather than vitamin and mineral-nutrient foods especially given that alcohol and mixed drinks in particular can contain a surprisingly high number of calories.

5. Insomnia, which paradoxically some people try to address by consuming alcohol, but only serve to make the problem worse. Chronic lack of sleep has been linked to a wide variety of adverse health conditions, including obesity.

6. Increased risk pancreatitis particularly for individuals who drink heavily for five years or longer.

7. Uncontrollable tremors (a.k.a. the shakes) that can make even the simplest, daily task extremely difficult, dangerous or even impossible (e.g. driving).

8. Increased risk of brain damage, as alcohol kills vitally important white and grey brain cells.

9. Various dental problems that can be dangerous as well as painful, including gum disease, tooth decay and abscesses.

10. Severe anxiety, as alcohol inhibits the central nervous system and over time weakens the brains ability to cope with stress.

11. Depression, as contrary to what many people believe, alcohol lowers the brains serotonin and norepinephrine levels rather than increases them (i.e. alcohol is a depressant, not a stimulant).

12. Erectile dysfunction, which can be painful and dangerous, plus can lead to diminished self-esteem and relationship problems.

13. Unemployment and inability to sustain employment.

14. Unmanageable debt, as alcohol bills coupled with employment problems start to add up.

15. Marital and relationship difficulties, as most alcoholics including so-called high functioning alcoholics are prone to lies and deceit to continue their addiction.

16. Homelessness according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 40% of homeless people are alcohol dependent.

News About How to Avoid Painful Bladder Stones and What to Do if You Get Them

(PRWEB) June 19, 2014

Bladder stones are exactly what they sound like; hard stone-like pieces of concentrated urine which have crystallized and clumped together. Interestingly enough, in developing nations, bladder stones are fairly common in children and sadly, as a result of dehydration, infection and a low-protein diet. In the U.S., bladder stones tend to occur primarily in adults, and men over the age of 30 are the most vulnerable.

How stones get in the bladder

While water makes up the majority of urine content, about five percent is made up of minerals and salts along with proteins and other waste products. When urine becomes overly concentrated due to dehydration, infection or other problems the color will vary from dark amber to brown depending on the types of waste and minerals it contains.

Bladder stones can become so large or numerous that they block the tube (called a urethra) that urine flows through from the bladder. A blocked urethra may cause slow and/or painful urination or it might make urination impossible. Sometimes, bladder stones cause no problems at all even when stones become quite large. However, real problems begin to develop as stones irritate the bladder wall or block the flow of urine, causing a variety of symptoms including:

- Role of the nitric oxide donor linsidomine chlorhydrate (SIN-1) in the diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction

Testosterone Lawsuit Accuses Drugs Manufacturers of Engaging in Deceptive Marketing, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 14, 2014

A testosterone lawsuit ( recently filed in the multidistrict litigation now underway in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, is seeking reimbursement for the costs insurance companies incurred covering prescriptions for AndroGel, Testopel, Axiron, Androderm and Fortesta Gel, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. The November 5th filing alleges that the manufacturers of testosterone therapies engaged in deceptive marketing, and caused insurers to pay billions of dollars for unsafe and ineffective medications. Among other things, the class action lawsuit points out that federal regulators have only approved testosterone replacement drugs for the treatment of hypogonadism (low testosterone) caused by an underlying medical condition. However, the complaint asserts that pharmaceutical companies marketed testosterone products as treatments for age-related issues, such as erectile dysfunction, diabetes, depression, and obesity. (Case No. 1:2014cv08857)

This complaint joins more than 200 other testosterone lawsuits that have been filed in Illinois on behalf of men who allegedly suffered serious heart problems due to their use of AndroGel and similar treatments. These lawsuits also put forth similar allegations regarding the marketing tactics used to drive sales of the drugs, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is now offering free case reviews to victims of heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and other life-threatening heart problems that were allegedly caused by prescription testosterone medication.

Testosterone Litigation

According to court documents, more than 220 testosterone lawsuits are now pending in the litigation underway in the Northern District of Illinois, all of which claim that the manufacturers of low testosterone therapies failed to warn doctors and patients about their potential cardiovascular risks, and concealed those dangers from the public. The lawsuits further allege that the manufacturers of the medications engaged in deceptive advertising that induced many men to use the potentially dangerous treatments, even though they had no real medical need for testosterone replacement therapy. (In re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Product Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2545)

Court documents indicate that the litigation involving testosterone treatments has been growing since January, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) launched a safety review of their cardiovascular risks. In September, a panel of outside advisors convened by the FDA recommended that the manufacturers of the medications be required to conduct studies of their cardiovascular side effects. The advisors also recommended that the labeling for low testosterone therapies be revised to make clear they have not been shown to lessen symptoms typically associated with aging in men.*

Men who allegedly suffered heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and other serious cardiovascular events due to low testosterone therapy may be entitled to file their own testosterone lawsuit.
