TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH. You are the best manager for your health.
High-Sensitivity C-reactive Protein Test The level of C-reactive protein (CRP), which can be measured in your blood, increases when there’s inflammation in your body. Your doctor might check your C-reactive protein level for infections or for other medical conditions.
Duplex Ultrasound The purpose of this study is early identification of reduced arteriovenous fistula and Graft blood flow by Doppler ultrasound and evaluation of doppler US as a mean of vascular access blood flow surveillance.
Electron Beam Computed Tomogram Electron beam tomography (EBT) is a specific form of computed tomography (CT) in which the X-ray tube is not mechanically spun in order to rotate the source of X-ray photons. This different design was explicitly developed to better image heart structures which never stop moving, performing a complete cycle of movement with each heart beat.
Homocysteine Test A homocysteine test measures the amount of homocysteine in your blood. Homocysteine is a type of amino acid, a chemical your body uses to make proteins. Normally, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and folic acid break down homocysteine and change it into other substances your body needs. There should be very little homocysteine left in the bloodstream.
Isotope Treadmill Stress Test An IV is started in your arm before your treadmill stress test. A chemical called an isotope (radioactive substance) will be put in the IV during the test. The isotope sticks to your blood cells and will help show images of your heart and how much blood gets into your heart muscle).
Fasting blood glucose test The glucose tolerance test, also known as the oral glucose tolerance test, measures your body’s response to sugar (glucose). The glucose tolerance test can be used to screen for type 2 diabetes. More commonly, a modified version of the glucose tolerance test is used to diagnose gestational diabetes — a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.
Colonoscopy A colonoscopy (koe-lun-OS-kuh-pee) is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum.
DEXA Scan A bone density test determines if you have osteoporosis — a disorder characterized by bones that are more fragile and more likely to break.
REPORTED BY: THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, Chao Deng, Josh Chin 134 mins ago
WUHAN, China—A Chinese doctor who became a folk hero after he was arrested for warning about the dangers of the deadly new virus now spreading around the world died on Friday after becoming infected with it.
Li Wenliang, a 33-year-old ophthalmologist based in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, had captivated the country and triggered an extraordinary outpouring of emotion as he ailed.
In social-media posts, many Chinese directed their frustration at government officials who many believe didn’t respond quickly enough despite clear evidence of the developing epidemic. Millions of people flocked to a live stream about Dr. Li that was run by local media outside the hospital where he was being treated.
“An all-out effort to save him was unsuccessful,” the hospital said. “We deeply grieve the loss.”
The World Health Organization on Thursday reported 28,285 confirmed cases globally, including more than 3,700 new ones. A total of 565 people have died, it said. Singapore, which has the second-largest number of cases outside China, reported two new infections, including one with no apparent link to China.
Chinese state media reported Thursday night that Dr. Li’s heart had stopped at around 9:30 p.m., and that he was immediately put on life support. The hospital where Dr. Li was being treated later said authorities were still fighting to keep him alive and then announced his death at 2:58 a.m. Friday.
After initial reports of Dr. Li’s death began circulating online late Thursday in China, including from the official social-media accounts of Communist Party publications, he was mourned and celebrated as a symbol of the public’s determination to find answers to still-unanswered questions about how officials first responded to the outbreak.
Tuna Review: Target Market Pantry Solid White Albacore in Water
12 ounce can of Dolphin Safe $2.79 on SALE $1.99 (Hawaii) This is a good deal for the price. Most of the 12 ounce cans of tuna from the “Big” markets are of lesser quality compared to your name brands. So far this is one is good quality. Name brands prices run any where from $5.99 to $14.99 for a 12 ounce can. I am sure it is cheaper for other states.
“Hey my tuna tastes like Vegetables”…Just kidding..
Not sure why the ingredients include vegetable brooth when it says in water? I thought we wanted it to taste like tuna?
Ingredients vary from manufacture. This can contains: Albacore Tuna, Water, Vegetable Broth, Salt, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate. May also contain Bones.
It does not say what country it was processed or caught in. Mystery fish are becoming more prevalent in our society. Not all Tuna is alike… It does say it CONTAINS TUNA… Hahahahaha. Actually I thought it was a very good tuna for the price.
There are 3 servings per can. I add pickles and Mayo so I get more like 5 servings… I love sweet gherkin pickles. OOohhhh So Yummy!! Ok back to the facts.
90 Calories per serving when drained. A Healthy 1/3 cup of Tuna per serving.
Wow I did not realize tuna had Cholesterol. Each serving of this Tuna has 30 mg. I thought we ate tuna to lower our Cholesterial? Now I am confused.
It says it only has 1 Gram of Fat. Which fat? It does not say. But you do get a touch of Potassium 200mg, Vitamin D 1.1 mcg and Iron 0.4mg.
Sodium is at 280mg. No Carbs, No Fiber, No sugars and No Added Sugars.
Great News 19 grams of Protein and 220 mg per serving of DHA & EPA OMEGA-3 are present.
The good thing with Target’s Brand, Market Pantry Solid White Albacore Tuna is that there is no Soy added. Bumble Bee Tuna adds Soy and is about $4 more a can here.
If you are adding Mayo and Or Pickles get the nutritional information from the labels on the containers and watch those calories bump up. Don’t forget the bread, crackers or what ever vessel your delivery will be to your mouth has to be counted. Slimmest delivery system is a spoon… Zero calories.
