    New Delivery Method Developed For Parkinson’s Disease Treatment
    A new time release capsule designed for medications like the Parkinson’s disease treatment of carbidopa/levodopa has been developed called the Accordion Pill.  Made of pleated, biodegradable medical-grade film encased in a capsule it unfurls when the capsule comes in contacted with stomach fluid.  That way, the drugs can be time released into the Parkinson’s patient for up to 12 hours, making it more effective.

    Shots May Become A Thing Of The Past With New Technology
    Hate getttng shots?  Researchers have invented just the device for you.  The "shot in a pill" capsule embeds miniature drug-filled needles in your intestinal wall, which lacks receptors that can register pain.  The sugar-based needles then dissolve while the rest of the robotic pill deflates and is eliminated.  It’s still in the experimental stage, but shows promise. https://www.aarp.org/health/drugs-supplements/info-2018/future-pills-new-drug-uses.html

    Flu Deaths In Seniors Up Six-Fold From 2015-2016 Flu Season
    It is always surprising to me to see the statistics on how many people do not get a flu shot, particularly those that are of high risk.  Flu deaths are certainly on the rise for older Americans.  An analysis of government data by AARP Bulletin found that deaths of those 65 and older more than doubled in the past flu season from the prior year.  They are up six-fold from 2015-2016 season so this is truly a crisis. .Get your flu shot!

    Tai Chi Has Benefits Other Than Improving Balance And Flexibility
    It’s well known that Tai Chi, an ancient form of exercise combining low-impact movement with deep breathing, improves balance and flexibility.  When done on a regular basis, it appears to slow down the activity of genes associated with inflammation and repair some of the cellular damage caused by stress.  You can also meet new friends by joining a local Tai Chi class. http://www.diabetesforecast.org/2018/06-nov-dec/how-tai-chi-improves-balance.html

    Controlling Blood Glucose Levels Important For Diabetics, Can Reduce Risk Of Alzheimer’s Disease
    If you are diabetic, you know how important keeping your blood glucose level in a normal range is.  It can reduce the risk of diabetes-related complication and researchers now say that it can reduce your risk of getting dementia later in life.  In a study which was published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, researchers compared records dating back to 1999 for 785 adults age 65 and older.  Those who developed dementia were found to have higher glucose levels.
