Hughes was ruled to have put a crying patient at risk by dragging and throwing her on a bed. One witness said: "Susan used to watch Netflix every night and would finish watching it at around 10.30pm after she had finished the medication. "She would watch it for hours on end. She would watch it in the reception area on her phone with ear phones in."

    If the Washington Post is to be believed, we’ve got a big problem, because if the White House wasn’t prepared for the news that the Supreme Court is poised to end federal abortion rights start, they have a serious lack of understanding of the reality in which we live. “Biden officials spent much of Tuesday panicked as they realized how few tools they had at their disposal, according to one outside adviser briefed on several meetings,” the Post reports. “While officials have spent months planning for the possibility the court would overturn the landmark ruling,” the Post reports, “the leaked document caught the White House off guard.” It shouldn’t have. A leak is unusual, yes, but the only surprise in the contents is just how bloodthirsty Justice Samuel Alito is in coming after abortion, and ultimately all the other 20th century rights the court established. “We will be ready when any ruling is issued,” Biden said in a statement Tuesday. Will they? Because they really should have seen this coming, and been prepared with some ideas by now. The fact that they...
    Cheryl Lampkin, 62, of Germantown, Maryland, reversed a prediabetes condition through diet and lifestyle changes. (Courtesy Cheryl Lampkin) How’s your blood sugar? About one in five Americans with diabetes has it, and doesn’t know it. Inspired by this week’s Diabetes Alert Day, a Maryland doctor wants people to get tested so they can take action if needed, and a local woman wants to inspire others by sharing her transformative journey. More than one in three Americans has prediabetes — which is higher-than-normal blood sugar. “What’s scary about that is, actually, of those with prediabetes, almost 84% don’t even know that they have it,” said Dr. Eva Dicocco, a Kaiser Permanente family physician in Woodlawn, Maryland. Describing it as a ticking time bomb, Dicocco said it’s critical for people to be aware of undiagnosed prediabetes before it’s too late. “If you go from prediabetes to diabetes, then you can have all the unfortunate complications that come with diabetes that can affect your heart, your kidneys, your vision, your nerves, pretty much the whole body, unfortunately,” she said.

    CASH-STRAPPED senior citizens could receive a fourth stimulus check as some are reportedly living off just one meal a day while others are cutting their medication. The Senior Citizens League are calling for extra cash payments, worth up to $1,400, for retired Americans. 2Cash-strapped senior Americans could receive a stimulus check worth up to $1,400Credit: Getty In a letter to congressional leaders, chairman Rick Delaney said: “We’ve heard from thousands of them who have exhausted their retirement savings, who have started eating just one meal a day, started cutting their pills in half because they can’t afford their prescription drugs. “Many have written to us that ‘our government has forgotten about us’. Delaney hopes that congressional support for a $1,400 check will grow next year as lawmakers squabble over issues such as the debt ceiling and Joe Biden’s infrastructure legislation, according to Fool. A petition, supported by the Senior Citizens League, states: “I want Social Security recipients to receive a $1,400 emergency stimulus check to cope during this unprecedented inflationary year. “Social security benefits are one of the few...
    People who come off their antidepressant medication are significantly more likely to relapse than those who stay on them, a study suggests. University College London researchers followed 500 depressed Britons in remission – who had previously been taking citalopram, sertraline, fluoxetine or mirtazapine for at least nine months – for a year. Those who were phased off their medication had a 56 per cent risk of becoming clinically depressed again. Patients who carried on with their prescription were 39 per cent likely to relapse. This shows long-term antidepressant use does reduce the chance of suffering from depression, but is not a guarantee, the researchers said. Patients who keep taking antidepressants are around a fifth (17%) less likely to experience depression compared to those who stop taking medication, a study has found.  The graph shows the probability of being free from depression for those who kept taking antidepressants (blue line) compared to those who stopped taking the drugs (red line). Those who discontinued taking the treatment experienced a relapse sooner and were overall more likely to have another depressive episode Dr...

    In his first on-camera interview since being diagnosed with COVID-19, President Donald Trump proclaimed that he is no longer taking coronavirus medication. Trump divulged details about his battle with COVID-19 during an interview and "medical evaluation" with Dr. Marc Siegel, a medical contributor to Fox News and associate professor of medicine at New York University since 1988. During Siegel's interview with the president that aired on Friday's episode of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Trump gave an update on his health and said he is off coronavirus medication. Siegel first asked Trump how he feels. "I feel really good. I feel very strong," Trump replied. "I know a lot of people that have had the COVID or the China virus as I call it because it came from China. But I feel really, really strong and a lot of people don't feel that way sometimes for awhile afterwards but are very good." DR. SIEGEL: “How are you feeling now?” TRUMP: “I feel really good. I feel very strong.” https://t.co/dHiM6oYPcj — Danny De Urbina (@Danny De Urbina)1602289508.0 Trump said he...
