Use the Club Red Heart Age Calculator to find out if you are young at heart.
Heart Age Calculator
Your 'heart age' is not determined by years, but rather by the condition of your heart. Of course, time plays a role in aging your heart, but other risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, elevated stress levels, obesity, smoking and an inactive lifestyle can further the aging process.
Using the Club Red Heart Age Calculator, you can find out the age of your heart. Your heart age is determined based on results from The Framingham Risk Study, which found that certain risk factors have a greater or lesser impact on your heart health than others.
When we deal with professional singers, they are much more attuned to the subtleties and changes in their vocal cords.
Hackensaw Boys Singer Treated for Vocal Polyps
David Sickmen began playing music and singing at age 18. Eventually, he became a founding member of The Hackensaw Boys, a Charlottesville based bluegrass band.
After years of singing, Sickmen began to feel pain and noticed that his vocals were changing. He visited James Daniero, MD, an ENT specialist at the University of Virginia. Daniero performed a minimally invasive throat surgery to remove the polyps that had formed on Sickmen’s vocal cords.
This spring, The Hackensaw Boys will release a new album featuring Sickmen’s brand new voice.
Our foremost goal is to establish a new diabetes treatment paradigm.
Artificial Pancreas Research
Researchers at the University of Virginia have developed a device that automatically monitors and regulates blood-sugar levels in people with type 1 diabetes. The device, known as the artificial pancreas, will undergo final tests in early 2016.
Nearly 1.25 million Americans have type 1 diabetes, meaning their bodies do not produce enough insulin.
The final testing will take place in several places across the United States and Europe. The artificial pancreas is meant to replace the need for people with type 1 diabetes to stick their finger several times a day to check their blood-sugar levels. They will now be able to read it digitally.
