Center for Human Reproduction Receives Two New Patent Approvals on Androgen Supplementation for Women with Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) Attempting to Conceive (amazon) (shopzilla)


New York, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

Center for Human Reproduction (CHR), a leading fertility research and treatment center in New York City, announced approval of two patent applications regarding the therapeutic benefits and mechanisms of androgen supplementation for pregnancy chances of women with diminished ovarian reserve (DOR).

Combined, the two newly awarded patents (#8,501,718 and #8,501,719) describe the use of supplementation with androgens, such as dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), to restore ovarian environments deteriorated due to advanced female age (over 38 years) or premature ovarian aging (indicated by abnormally high FSH or abnormally low AMH levels for age).

The new patents follow the two previously awarded patents (#7,615,544 and #8,067,400), which describe DHEA supplementation as a means to improve various quality parameters of eggs and embryos, to shorten time to pregnancy and to improve pregnancy rates. Improving pregnancy chances for women with DOR has been a long-standing research focus at CHR, and CHRs introduction of DHEA supplementation, almost a decade ago, truly revolutionized fertility treatments for women with DOR.

Having now discovered the mechanisms by which supplementation with DHEA or other androgens achieves all of these effects, one of the new patents (#8,501,719) describes these improvements as stemming from restoration of the ovarian environment to its youthful state with healthy androgen levels. The other (#8,501,718) identifies improvements in anti-M

          Great HealthWorks, Inc., Makers of Omega XL, Reports University of Kansas Medical Center Study: Omega-3s Support Healthier Pregnancies and Birth Weight (amazon) (shopzilla)

          (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

          Due to widespread dietary deficiencies of essential omega-3 fatty acids, doctors typically recommend that pregnant women add an Omega-3 supplement to their pre and postnatal care regimen. Recent research, conducted at the University of Kansas Medical Center and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, suggests supplementing pregnant mothers with omega-3 fatty acid, such as found in Omega XL, can lead to longer gestations and healthier birth weights.

          The Kansans City researchers designed a double-blind, randomized placebo controlled trial – long considered the gold standard in clinical research that looked at a group of 350 pregnant women, from the 20th week of gestation to birth, who were given either 600 mg of omega-3 DHA daily, or a placebo. Blood was analyzed for red blood cell phospholipid DHA upon enrolment in the study and at birth, from both mom as well as from the umbilical cord.

          The blood samples from the group supplemented with DHA, compared to the placebo group, registered higher levels of phospholipid DHA both maternally and at the umbilical cord. An analysis of the pregnancies showed that the DHA group experienced longer gestation duration, greater birth weight and infant size (measured in length and head circumference) than the placebo group. In addition, the DHA group experienced fewer births before 34 weeks, and shorter hospital stays for infants born preterm than did the placebo group.

          This study demonstrated that 600mg per day of Omega-3 fatty acid DHA was safe and helped to promote healthy fetal development, overall pregnancy wellness and a reduction in preterm births. The researchers stated as to the significance of the findings: a reduction in early preterm and very-low birth weight could be important clinical and public health outcomes of DHA supplementation.

          These findings come on the heels of prior prenatal and pediatric research which suggests that omega-3 supplementation promotes neurological and intellectual development, supports the brain and eyes, increases cognitive function, and enhances visual learning and memory in infants and young children.

          Omega XL is one of only two Omega 3 supplements sold in the world that contains the patented stabilized marine lipid extract PCSO-524 derived only from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, with 30 healthy fatty acids including DHA and EPA. Sold in other parts of the world under its sister brand name Lyprinol, Omega XL is manufactured exclusively by Great HealthWorks Inc., and is the most widely available omega-3 fish oil supplement containing the potent PCSO-524 marine lipid extract.

            Dr. Meg Qayum Leads Prediabetes Treatment Center in Houston (amazon) (shopzilla)


            Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

            PreDiabetes Centers, the nationwide leader in customized prediabetes treatment, today announced the opening of a new location in Houston and the appointment of Dr. Meg Qayum to lead the treatment center. Dr. Qayum is a board-certified physician with many years of experience in treating chronic disease. As a prediabetes physician, she will direct medical care for patients enrolled in the Companys 12-month comprehensive treatment program.

            Dr. Qayum specializes in integrative and functional medicine. She received her medical degree and residency training from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. She is a member of the Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, the Institute for Functional Medicine, and the American College for Advancement in Medicine. Dr. Qayum served as the Wellness Director of Divinity Med Spa & Wellness where she used a combination of bioidentical hormone therapy and customized nutrition and fitness therapy to treat people with hormone imbalance conditions, including weight gain, loss of energy, low libido, stress and depression.

            She will meet with clients at the PreDiabetes Center of North Houston at 13215 Dotson Road, Suite 340.

            Dr. Qayum is excited about incorporating a multi-faceted approach to prediabetes care. This is the first program that looks at all contributing factors of the disease, she said, noting that the program uses continuous biomarker tests to ensure that individual markers of health are improving in conjunction with treatment.

            Dr. Qayum says that people with prediabetes need targeted medical treatment in order to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes.

            You cant treat a chronic disease on your own. [Prediabetics] need a team approach to help guide them through [treatment], said Dr. Qayum.

            She notes that even if a person never progress to diabetes, he or she still has harmful conditions occurring in the body, such as inflammation, high blood pressure or abnormal cholesterol levels, that can lead to long-term health problems. A comprehensive prediabetes treatment plan targets these underlying imbalances and can help reverse their devastating effects.

            Dr. Qayum said that many factors contribute to a prediabetes diagnosis, but nutrition, in particular, is a serious problem.

            People who are in their 30s and 40s were raised in a generation when soft drinks werent considered bad, says Dr. Qayum.

            Its now known that highly processed food and beverages can spike blood sugar, raise blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and lead to a host of diseases, including obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

            Still, many people find it difficult to change their dietary habitsand when combined with other risk factors, a persons system can become overwhelmed, she said.

            Thats why nutritional balancingand also hormone balancingis so critical.

            You have to diagnose a persons nutritional deficiencies to treat them effectively, said Dr. Qayum. She notes that many people are deficient in iodine, vitamin D, CoQ10, and magnesiumimportant nutrients that are needed to keep the body functioning properly.

            In addition to nutritional supplementation, the PreDiabetes Centers treatment plan incorporates pharmaceutical intervention, health coaching, state-of-the-art body monitoring, advanced nutrition, and personalized fitness to treat clients.

            More than 79 million Americans have prediabetes, defined as blood glucose levels that are high but not yet high enough for a diabetes diagnosis. People with prediabetes are likely to develop type 2 diabetes, a condition that can damage multiple organ systems and increase risk for heart disease, stroke, kidney damage and nerve damage.

            PreDiabetes Centers is a privately owned company based in Austin, Texas, dedicated to the treatment of prediabetes. Treatment at the Center is based on physician-directed care and lifestyle intervention tailored for each client. The company offers a complimentary biomarker-based blood screening that can detect prediabetes, and also continuing biomarker tests throughout the 12-month personalized program to monitor specific processes in the body associated with prediabetic conditions.
