Obesity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension are significant challenges to public health and impact a growing number of Americans. Weight loss and dietary changes are effective in preventing CVD and DMII and reducing cardiometabolic complications, but can be difficult for many people. Growing evidence supports the use of timed fasting to promote weight loss and reduce these complications. Join us as we discuss a recent study that shows promising data regarding a 10-hour feeding window and improved CV markers.

Shingles, or herpes zoster (HZ), is a common secondary infection. More than 95% of immunocompetent individuals aged > 50 years are seropositive for the varicella zoster virus (VZV) and are at risk of developing shingles. This podcast series will address the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and complications of shingles, in addition to the strategies to prevent it.

In this episode we expand on the rationale for not screening and treating hyperlipidemia in patients without CV disease, diabetes, renal failure or heart failure.


Mobility disorders are a menace of old age, often resulting in falls, injuries, and especially hip fractures -- the sixth leading cause of death in the elderly. Primary care physicians have difficulties in both detecting and correctly identifying these abnormalities. In a paper published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society in 2004 [52(9):1527-31], the authors concluded that "community physicians appear to underdetect falls and gait disorders, leading to a paucity of recommendations and treatments." Hence the need to revisit the most common gait abnormalities. This multimedia presentation will provide a panorama of bipedalism, from its origin six million years ago in the savannahs of East Africa, to its rise as the unique trait of our species, and eventually to its status as a major cause of disability once full bipedalism is lost. The talk will review the physiology of ambulation and the prevalence of gait disorders in the population. In addition to detailed information on psychogenic and antalgic gaits, participants will learn about the seven major gait abnormalities. Whenever possible, the speaker will enliven the delivery by reviewing "famous patients," or vignettes of historical figures and celebrities who suffered the disorder.


Initial findings of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) published in 2002 forever changed the way menopause hormone therapy has been viewed in the United States. After WHI, use of systemic menopause hormone therapy (MHT) decreased by as much as 80 percent among U.S. women. In the following decade and half, additional data derived from WHI coupled with new research findings resulted in confusion and misunderstandings for patients and clinicians alike on the appropriate use of MHT to manage menopause. This presentation will blend the findings of WHI with newer learnings and provide a practical approach to using MHT.
