Loveland-based Restore Health Center has added a non-surgical fat reduction program to its menu of aesthetic services and is hosting an open house for the treatment in time for New Year’s resolutions. The FDA-approved CoolSculpting service is the only weight loss procedure comparable to liposuction that does not require surgery, according to Dr. James Howton, medical director and lead CoolSculpting operator at the health center. “You can target a specific area like trunk, love handles, tummy,” Howton said of the CoolSculpting procedure. “The applicators actually have suction that suck the fatty area into the applicator and cool it there for an hour.” It was developed by dermatologists with Popsicle panniculitis in mind, an observance in which dimples appear after children suck on Popsicles. About one third of targeted fat cells are frozen to death, which the body will eliminate during the 6-8 weeks following treatment, according to a news release. No harm is done to surrounding skin or tissue. Multiple body areas can be treated in a single procedure and patients are able to return to work immediately after the procedure because the treatment is not invasive. Despite making “Cracked’s” list of beauty products that qualify as torture, side effects

usually only include tingling of the treated area, Howton said. “Literally they can act completely normal afterward,” Howton said. “We tell people you can have some tingling or numbness, but that is normal.” Restore Health Center is the first in the Midwest region to offer CoolSculpting. Prices range from $1,250 for one treatment to $7,500 for 10 treatments. As part of its free open house, the health center is offering CoolSculpting consultations from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and program demonstrations from 4-7 p.m. that same day. Door prizes at the open house will include a free CoolSculpting treatment for one attendee and a $500 gift certificate to the individual who brings the most guests. Call (970) 278-0900 to register for the open house or visit www.freezefat.net/whatis-coolsculpting/next-coolsculpting-event for more information.

STUDY FINDS BINGE DRINKING A PROBLEM IN WOMEN AND GIRLS By Alison Noon gtreporters@greeleytribune.com

S

tudies suggest that, despite popular belief, binge drinking is an ongoing problem among women and girls. The number of women binge drinking in the state of Colorado marginally surpasses the national level found in a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. Lorenza Ruiz, a 19-yearold sophomore at the University of Northern Colorado, said sees large groups of girls drinking more heavily at college gatherings than when just a couple of girls get together. She said she suspects females are trying to “keep up” with their male counterparts. “Girls want attention from the guys and that’s definitely a way to get attention,” Ruiz said. “It really depends on the girl, though.” The report, released in January, shows that about 12.5 percent of adult women and about 20 percent of high school girls binge drink in America. “It is alarming to see that binge drinking is so common among women and girls, and that women and girls are drinking so much when they do,” said Dr. Robert Brewer, of the CDC’s Alcohol Program. According to the report, which is based on results

FOR THE TRIBUNE

of a 2011 phone survey of about 278,000 women and 7,500 high school girls: » About one in eight women and one in five high school girls report binge drinking. » Women who binge drink do so frequently — about three times a month — and have about six drinks per episode. » Binge drinking was most common among white and Latino women, and among women with household incomes of $75,000 or more. » Half of all high school girls who drink alcohol report binge drinking. Girls are quickly catching up to boys when it comes to binge drinking. » Binge drinking results in about 23,000 deaths in women and girls each year. In Colorado, 14 percent of binge drinkers are women, according to statistics provided by Director of Maternal Child Health Surveillance Rickey Tolliver at the Colorado Depart-

ment of Public Health and Environment. Additionally, Weld County Prevention Partners has found that 24.7 percent of Weld County high school students who reported binge drinking in

2012 are female. “We’re looking a little different than the nation,” Tolliver said. The difference is slight, but meaningful in the state that ranked as the nation’s 11th healthiest state in 2012 by America’s Health Rankings. Tolliver noted the difference in the definition of binge drinking between sexes, which the CDC measures as five drinks for men and four drinks for women because their bodies process alcohol and are sized differently. Stefan Richmond, a 19-year-old freshman at UNC, said he was surprised to learn the CDC’s binge definition.

» Binge drinking among women and girls in America » Women who engage in binge drinking nationally: 12.5 percent; Colorado: 14 percent » High school girls nationally: 20 percent; Weld County: 24.7 percent » Alcohol use in a community is affected by alcohol’s price and availability. » Underage drinking is affected by exposure to alcohol marketing. » Underage drinking is also influenced by adult drinking, and youth often obtain alcohol from adults. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Weld County Prevention Partners

such as breast cancer, sexually transmitted diseases, heart disease and unintended pregnancy, CDC Director Thomas Frieden said.

“On that definition, I have definitely seen a lot of women binge drinking,” Richmond said on the Greeley campus. “I would define a binge as going past your limit.” Binge drinking puts women at a higher risk for many health problems,

BEWARE OF FAKE MEDICINES WHEN USING ONLINE PHARMACIES The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Beware of big promises for cut-rate medicines from online pharmacies that can leave a potential buyer with more problems than cures. From illegal online pharmacies to unapproved over-the-counter drugs, there’s no shortage of scammers hoping to capitalize on New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, cure acne or enhance sexual performance. And there are dangers involved in getting pharmaceuticals online. According to the Food and Drug Administration, bad drugs could cost you your life. “People who buy medication from a fake online pharmacy may be putting their health at risk because the products sold, while being passed off as authentic, may be fake, expired, contaminated or otherwise unsafe,” said Sarah Clark-Lynn, an FDA spokeswoman. In fact, the proliferation of illegal online pharmacies is so vast, she said, the agency is working with its foreign counterparts to shut down websites selling unapproved and potentially dangerous medicines, and it recently launched BeSafeRx to help protect consumers from online scams. “We want to arm consumers with information they can use to make informed decisions about the medicine they take,” Clark-Lynn said. She said the FDA sent warning letters to the operators of thousands of websites and companies selling unapproved or misbranded prescription and over-the-counter drugs to consumers. An FDA survey shows one out of four Internet users reported buying prescription medicines online. But almost 30 percent said they are not confident they know how to buy medicines online safely. It’s a reminder to use caution in any transaction. Dottie Callina, a spokeswoman for the Better Business Bureau, said consumers should take simple steps to guard against Internet and other fraud, including limiting the amount of personal information you share online. Online shopping and chatting can offer some great benefits and deals, but be aware

FOR THE TRIBUNE

Some of the illegal medicines identified through an FDA operation: » Domperidone, which can be used for nausea and vomiting. » Isotretinoin, previously marketed as Accutane in the United States. » Tamiflu or oseltamivir phosphate is used to treat the flu and is often sold online as “generic Tamiflu.” However, there is no FDA-approved generic version of Tamiflu. » Viagra, sildenafil citrate, used to treat erectile dysfunction. Source: Food and Drug Administration

» Requires a valid prescription from a doctor. » Licensed and located in the United States. » Has a licensed pharmacist available for consultation. » May be linked to an established local brick-and-mortar pharmacy based in the U.S. or available through your health insurance plan or network. Signs that should raise a red flag: » Allows you to buy medicine without a prescription from your doctor. » Offers deep discounts or cheap prices that seem too good to be true. » Sends spam or unsolicited email offering cheap drugs. » Located outside of the United States or ships worldwide.

WARNING SIGNS

PROTECT YOURSELF

Signs an online pharmacy is safe, according to the FDA:

If you want to keep your finances healthy as well, the BBB offers these steps you can take to

of the dangers. Use the same connectivity to check out the people or businesses offering you a deal. BE ON THE ALERT

protect yourself from fraud: » Do your research. Whether it’s a business you’re looking to hire or a product you’re looking to buy, take the time to do your research. Check out a business at bbb.org to see its BBB Business Review. For product information, go to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. » Keep your computer safe. Install antivirus software on your computer and regularly check for software and operating system updates. Don’t open attachments or click on links in emails unless the email has been scanned for viruses or is from someone you know or trust. » Never wire money to someone you don’t know. Many scams require money to be wired back to the scammer. Tracking money sent via a money wiring service is almost impossible. » Protect your identity. Always shred paper documents that include sensitive financial data and dispose of computers, cellphones and digital data safely. Safely store all personal documents, such as your Social Security card.

HYSTERECTOMY RATES DROP AS WOMEN LEARN THEIR OPTIONS The Sacramento Bee SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — Not

until after the surgery did Sandra Nauer realize how sick she'd been. “Oh, my gosh, I had no idea I was in such bad shape,” said Nauer, 44, who lives in Galt, Calif. After years of excruciating back pain, fatigue and other symptoms, she had an outpatient hysterectomy on May 22 — and on June 7, she returned to work running her catering business. “I'm a new woman,” she said. “Holy smokes, I feel like a million bucks.” For earlier generations of women, hysterectomy was all but a rite of passage before age 50, albeit a difficult one. Even now, it remains the second-most-performed surgical procedure for American women still of reproductive age, and by age 60, one in three women has undergone the surgery, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Despite that, hysterectomy rates in the past three decades have dropped from almost 56 per 10,000 women to 33 per 10,000, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists statistics show, and the surgery itself has been streamlined into minimally invasive procedures that make the operation and recovery easier. But hysterectomy remains controversial. While many medical experts see good news in pioneering advances and quick recovery times, some of them also see bad news, as well, saying that up to two-thirds of the 600,000 hysterectomies performed each year in this country could be avoided. Are too many women undergoing hysterectomies, even now? Should women think twice before

having the surgery? “The rate has come down a little but not enough,” said Dr. William Parker, UCLA School of Medicine clinical professor and author of “A Gynecologist's Second Opinion.” “In the old days, hysterectomy was all we had to offer for patients. We were taught that it was the solution for almost every complaint.” Today, alternative treatments often replace surgery, particularly for women below age 50. “One of the problems is that the information on alternatives hasn't seeped out as widely as it should into the medical world,” said Parker. “A lot of the newer surgeries now are minimally invasive, but many doctors haven't been trained to do them.” For younger women, 90 percent of hysterectomies deal not with reproductive cancers but rather with pelvic pain; uterine fibroids, or benign tumors; excessive bleeding; and endometriosis. For older women, the most common underlying diagnosis is cancer. Side effects of the surgery — which involves the removal of the ovaries in almost three-fourths of patients — can include the early onset of menopause, bladder and bowel problems and loss of sex drive. Research also shows that hysterectomy can increase a woman's risk of heart disease and lung cancer. “It's important that women understand, even if they're not having children any more, they might like to have sex, and they might like not having a heart attack,” said Nora Coffey, founder of the Pennsylvaniabased Hysterectomy Education Resources and Services Foundation. “Whether the surgery is life-saving or completely unnecessary, you deserve to know the consequences.” But other medical experts insist

SACRAMENTO BEE

SANDRA NAUER WORKS DEC. 28 in Sacramento, Calif. Nauer had heard horror stories about hysterectomies from older relatives but her recovery took about two weeks with no complications, and she was able to return to her job as a caterer.

In the old days, hysterectomy was all we had to offer for patients. We were taught that it was the solution for almost every complaint.

Dr. William Parker

that alternative treatments are always their first choice before surgery. Hormone treatments can help relieve abnormal uterine bleeding and other menstrual cycle disorders, for example, as can endometrial ablation. Similarly, medications can help shrink uterine fibroids. “There are certainly non-surgical ways to deal with female problems besides removing the uterus,” said Dr. Wesley Hilger, medical director of Sutter Medical Center's minimally invasive gynecology program. “It's a conversation you have with

the patient.” Like other experts, he also sees a significant generational change in women's attitudes, with younger, consumer-oriented patients more comfortable demanding answers from their doctors. “Many older patients who've had hysterectomy years ago don't know why,” he said. “They'll say, ‘My doctor said I needed it.’ “Now patients have access to information on the Internet. We have a real discussion. The age of the paternalistic doctor is over. Now the decision is more what works for their condition and their lifestyle.” Of the 1,500 hysterectomies he estimates that he's performed in the past six years, he said, only a handful have involved the traditional abdominal incision stretching from hip to hip. Most are vaginal, laporoscopic or robotic surgeries, and increasingly no overnight hospital stay is involved. “You have to overcome historical bias,” he said. “Patients have the idea

that because their mother was in the hospital five days after her hysterectomy, they should be, too.” Noreen Rademacher, now 86, remembers the wave of hysterectomies that rippled through her age group of women four decades ago, and she remembers friends being bedridden with pain for much of their six-month recovery times. When she was in her early 70s — a retired teacher, widow and breast cancer survivor — she had a hysterectomy herself after she was diagnosed with a benign baseball-size growth outside her uterus. “My doctor said, ‘While I'm down there, why not get rid of Everything?’ ” said Rademacher. “He said, ‘You don't need it, and I'll remove the possibility of you getting cervical or ovarian cancer in the future.’ ” She spent a few days in the hospital after her hysterectomy and within a week was back to walking her dog and taking exercise class. And she has no regrets. “Once you've had cancer, you don't want it again,” she said. Sandra Nauer thinks her decision to undergo hysterectomy not only solved ongoing gynecologic issues now but also prevented problems in years to come. After an abnormal Pap smear and extensive tests, she chose a minimally invasive procedure. And then her mother and grandmother, who both had hysterectomies in their 40s, started sharing their long-ago experiences with her. “All these horror stories,” said Nauer. “I was really nervous about the surgery. I heard things from other women, all these frightening things. Everyone said, ‘You'll never be the same. You'll be down physically for a couple of years.’ “I was really scared, but it was nothing like I expected it to be.”
