Attorney Health Tips: Dangers of High Protein Diets

Many lawyers have followed high protein diets because they want to either build muscle or lose weight. In some instances, these diets require the supervision of a dietitian and a physician because there may be profound consequences and even death of the patient.

Risk of Other Diseases

High protein diets tend to de-emphasize plant food sources, which provide lots of carbohydrate and fiber. These items can lower the blood cholesterol and reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Many fruits, vegetables, whole grains, cereals, and low-fat dairy products, which high protein diets tend not to include, also help to maintain a normal blood pressure.

Some examples of high protein Diets:

  • Banting Diet
  • Paleo Diet
  • LCHF Diet (Low Carb High Fat)
  • Atkins Diet

The diet may help a lawyer to eat less, and this attracts overweight attorneys who want to lose weight. It does so through the process of ketosis, which induces nausea and loss of appetite. Over a long period of time, however, these patients may develop vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Since high protein diets emphasize animal food sources, they tend to supply a great deal of saturated fat. And with the increase in protein intake, these patients will develop …

The disabled access is the ability for people with disabilities to access a physical or information.

The government has provided a definition of accessibility:

“Accessibility allows autonomy and participation of people with disabilities, reducing or even eliminating, the discrepancies between the capacities, needs and desires on the one hand, and the different physical components, their organizational and cultural environment on the other. Access requires the implementation of the additional elements necessary for any person permanently or temporarily unable to move and free access and security of life and all places, services, products and activities. Society, involved in this effort of accessibility, also advances the quality of life of all its members. “

Access to a physical location for a physically disabled person.

For example, for a disabled person in a wheelchair, the presence of one or more steps makes it impossible to access certain sites, it is necessary to have a sloping ramp or a lift

Availability of information for a sensory disability.

For example, a visually impaired can not read a written text normal, you will need it in large letters on a contrasting background or a blind converted into spoken words or text in Braille. A hearing impaired …

When it was introduced in the 1990s, vaginal mesh was heralded as a safe and permanent fix for female pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a condition that happens when a woman’s pelvic muscles weaken causing the pelvic organs – including the bladder, vagina, rectum and uterus – to drop into the vagina. It’s a condition that typically plagues older women, women who have undergone childbirth, a hysterectomy and menopause.

Vaginal Mesh Complications

Vaginal mesh, made from a flexible plastic material, is surgically implanted through the vagina. After incisions are made in the vagina and supporting tissue near the vagina, this hammock-like device is stitched under the prolapsed organs. The mesh is supposed to support the organs and reinforce the weakened vaginal tissue.

In some cases, however, the mesh is known to erode, causing pain and infection. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says that 10 percent of women experience mesh erosion within one year of the surgery. Typically, erosion symptoms happen within a month of the initial surgery, with pain during sex, vaginal scarring, vaginal shrinkage and organ perforation being the most common.

Some women have opted to have the mesh surgically removed. The procedure is difficult but can be …

Although the FDA has received over 2,000 verifiable reports of complications resulting from vaginal mesh surgery, the procedure is still being performed on hundreds of thousands of women. Most vaginal mesh surgery is used to treat one of two conditions: stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Because the procedure was approved in 1996 and the first FDA warning was not issued until 2008, several lawsuits concerning vaginal mesh complications have been filed in nearly every state.

Vaginal Mesh Surgery

Vaginal mesh surgery sprang from the use of surgical mesh for the treatment of abdominal hernias. Surgical mesh is a flexible, perforated material that is surgically attached to tissue to hold organs or other tissue in place. After more than 40 years of being used for hernias, doctors began experiment with surgical mesh in transvaginal surgery to treat POP and SUI. Vaginal mesh surgery was approved to treat SUI in 1996 and POP in 2002.

Vaginal Mesh Complications Reported to FDA

Around 2005, nine years after vaginal mesh surgery was first approved, the FDA began receiving reports of complications resulting from the procedure. Some complications were merely the recurrence of the initial medical condition, but other, more severe …

A vaginal hysterectomy is a medical procedure involving the removal of the womb via the vagina. There are many reasons why the womb, also known as the uterus, may need to be removed. These include uterine cancer, excessively heavy menstrual bleeding, and endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a condition in which the cells that normally make up the womb lining begin to grow outside the uterus, often on the ovaries, causing pelvic pain that is especially bad during menstruation. Women who suffer with heavy or painful periods, for whom other treatments have been unsuccessful, may find that vaginal hysterectomy is the most effective solution for their ailments.

A woman who has had a hysterectomy will no longer have periods or be able to become pregnant.

Traditional Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy has traditionally been carried out through a cut in the abdomen. However, this leads to scarring and carries an increased risk of damage to other organs during the surgery. Vaginal hysterectomy, which is the removal of the uterus via the natural opening of the vagina, is a much less invasive procedure that leaves no visible scars. The procedure lasts for only an hour and requires a hospital stay of only one or two days.…
