A new health website for people over 50.

From the desk of Jorge D Faccinetti – cofounder  –  Chances are a good chunk of the information published on this site will be of great help to our pituitary over-50 crowd. The website, which is part of the Berkeley Wellness group, focuses on many areas of interest for older adults and includes food and fitness, drugs and supplements, sex and relationships, healthcare and costs, as well as loads of information on a variety of different conditions that also affect pituitary patients.

Here are a few articles we thought might be of interest.

For example, this article deals with the myth that some nightshade vegetables like eggplants, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes are bad for people with osteoarthritis, a condition prevalent in people with acromegaly.

The MIND diet focuses on 10 brain-healthy foods included in both the Mediterranean and DASH diets: leafy greens, vegetables, nuts, berries, beans, whole grains, fish, poultry, olive oil, and wine. This article offers practical advice on foods to try that are safe and tasty.

As you know, so many of us deal with bad knees. This article will give you a very objective look at what to expect with total knee replacement (total knee arthroplasty) including its advantages, risks, and limitations.

And when it comes to the exercise chiseled body buzz-sphere, walking is usually dismissed as a second-class citizen, not that effective. But contrary to those opinions, walking can be extremely effective and beneficial, even at low doses.  This article will give you a very good perspective on the importance of a brisk walk to help control diabetes.

We invite you to browse through the site. There are many helpful and informational pieces that I know you’ll find very practical. And stay tuned to PWN for new articles and podcasts specifically on aging and pituitary endocrinology.
