Generic name: ezetimibe (e˘-ze˘t´-e˘-mĹ¯b)

Read this information carefully before you start taking ZETIA and each time you get more ZETIA. There may be new information. This information does not take the place of talking with your doctor about your medical condition or your treatment. If you have any questions about ZETIA, ask your doctor. Only your doctor can determine if ZETIA is right for you.

WHAT IS ZETIA? ZETIA is a medicine used to lower levels of total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol in the blood. ZETIA is for patients who cannot control their cholesterol levels by diet and exercise alone. It can be used by itself or with other medicines to treat high cholesterol. You should stay on a cholesterol-lowering diet while taking this medicine. ZETIA works to reduce the amount of cholesterol your body absorbs. ZETIA does not help you lose weight. ZETIA has not been shown to prevent heart disease or heart attacks. For more information about cholesterol, see the “What should I know about high cholesterol?� section that follows.

Tell your doctor about any prescription and non-prescription medicines you are taking or plan to take, including natural or herbal remedies. Tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including allergies. Tell your doctor if you:              are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE ZETIA?              remember to take your dose if you do it at the same time every day, such as with breakfast, dinner, or at bedtime. If you also take another medicine to reduce your cholesterol, ask your doctor if you can take them at the same time.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF ZETIA?

7-MINUTE SOLUTION

In clinical studies patients reported few side effects while taking ZETIA. These included diarrhea, joint pains, and feeling tired. Patients have experienced severe muscle problems while taking ZETIA, usually when ZETIA was added to a statin drug. If you experience unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness while taking ZETIA, contact your doctor immediately. You need to do this promptly, because on rare occasions, these muscle problems can be serious, with muscle breakdown resulting in kidney damage. Additionally, the following side effects have been reported in general use: allergic reactions (which may require treatment right away) including swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat that may cause difďŹ culty in breathing or swallowing, rash, and hives; raised red rash, sometimes with target-shaped lesions; joint pain; muscle aches; alterations in some laboratory blood tests; liver problems; stomach pain; inflammation of the pancreas; nausea; dizziness; tingling sensation; depression; headache; gallstones; inammation of the gallbladder. Tell your doctor if you are having these or any other medical problems while on ZETIA. For a complete list of side effects, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT HIGH CHOLESTEROL?           

    cholesterol is made up of LDL and HDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is called “badâ€? cholesterol because it can build up in the wall of your arteries and form plaque. Over time, plaque build-up can cause a narrowing of the arteries. This narrowing can slow or block blood ow to your heart, brain, and other organs. High LDL cholesterol is a major cause of heart disease and one of the causes for stroke. HDL cholesterol is called “goodâ€? cholesterol because it keeps the bad cholesterol from building up in the arteries. Triglycerides also are fats found in your blood.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ZETIA Medicines are sometimes prescribed for conditions that are not mentioned in patient information leaets. Do not use ZETIA for a condition for which it was not prescribed. Do not give ZETIA to other people, even if they have the same condition you have. It may harm them. This summarizes the most important information about ZETIA. If you would like more information, talk with your doctor. You can ask your pharmacist or doctor for information about ZETIA that is written for health professionals. Inactive ingredients:

1

Pick the right light. Early mornings and late afternoons are the most attering times of day. If you must shoot inside, avoid the ash; it’s harsh and causes shadows. Instead, pose by a large window or glass door.

2

Avoid busy backgrounds. Outside, ďŹ nd an open park without buildings or jungle gyms. Indoors, clear away clutter and make your family the focal point. For a traditional look, try an outdoor mall decorated for the holidays, or a tree farm.

3

Coordinate your outďŹ ts. Go with a uniform look, whether casual or dressy, and choose colors that complement each other. Style tip: Skip the traditional green and red and opt for blues, grays, golds, and cranberry. Matching your scarves, tights, or shoes helps, too. And pay attention to ďŹ t— neither too snug nor too baggy.

Don’t strike a pose. Rather than telling kids to stand still and say cheese, try playing games, singing, even dancing. The goal is to get them to laugh, which will look more natural.

My Favorite

Birthday

SPEAK UP

FOR PREMATURE INFANTS. THEY CAN’T DO IT FOR THEMSELVES.

Condoleezza Rice “I don’t tend to have big birthday celebrations, so even though I was turning 50 [on Nov. 14, 2004], I thought I’d just have a casual dinner with family and go to bed early. But on the way to the restaurant, the car detoured to the British Embassy, where I was stunned to see people from every stage of my life. Then I had this horrible thought—‘I’m underdressed!’ They were all in gowns and tuxedos, and I had on black pants and a turtleneck. “But they whisked me upstairs and brought in this red satin gown that Oscar de la Renta had made for me. I thought, ‘I’m really going to be like Cinderella’—well, without the glass slippers. “President Bush gave the toast; he used the word friend, which meant a lot. And Van Cliburn played ‘Happy Birthday.’ “It’s hard to keep your center in Washington, and I was about to go into a major new role— secretary of state—so it was wonderful having all of that love and support rush at me.”

1 IN 8 BABIES ARE BORN SMALLER THAN THIS AD. They are born premature, tiny, and vulnerable. But it’s not just their size that puts them at risk. Among many health problems, preemies have underdeveloped airways which puts them at risk for severe respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease, such as bronchiolitis and/or pneumonia.

Whether citrusy, nutty, chocolaty, or very berry, they all have a story to tell. Take a culinary ride across the country, slice by slice. By Pascale Le Draoulec O Pies, Coast to Coast

CHERRY PIE We can thank Michigan for this tangy dessert: The state grows 75 percent of the nation’s tart cherries. Traverse City, which holds an annual National Cherry Festival, is billed as the cherry capital of the world. The average tree yields 7,000 cherries per year, enough for 28 pies.

PUMPKIN PIE Since its debut in the mid-1600s, pumpkin has become the second most popular pie filling in America (after apple), owing to its place on the Thanksgiving table. Illinois is the largest pumpkin producer— and processor.

PECAN PIE Though this pie is popular in such states as Alabama and Georgia, the Oklahoma Panhandle is so nuts about it that it’s been named the dessert in the “official state meal” (topping off the chicken fried steak, grits, and corn bread).

CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT PIE Farmers in the Northwest found that the hearty hazelnut mixed well with other ingredients, like chocolate or maple. Oregon grows 99 percent of commercial hazelnuts in the U.S.; it’s the state nut.

KEY LIME PIE Key limes may no longer be the, uh, key to this treat, but condensed milk remains so. Because the Florida Keys had no refrigeration until the Overseas Highway opened in 1938, bakers had to use canned milk, which became an essential element of Florida’s state pie.

MACADAMIA NUT PIE This confection is “practically a religion” in Hawaii, says Michael Stern of Roadfood.com. Mac pies have been around for more than 100 years and have a slew of variations. (Layering shredded coconut in the pie crust is one twist.)

butch cassidy was known for his daring bank heists, but as a kid, he was collared for stealing a pair of jeans and a slice of pie. He was acquitted, of course. What American jury could convict someone for stealing pie? We have loved pie longer than we have loved baseball. Even before we had a flag, we had pie. And though Americans would like to take credit for this touchstone dessert, especially around Thanksgiving, the truth is that pie existed long before the first Pilgrim set a buckled shoe on Plymouth Rock. Friends, Romans, Pie Makers … Every culture has made its mark on pie. As far back as 1300 b.c., Egyptian bakers were experimenting with a primitive pie dough. The Greeks were the first to mix flour and water into a thick paste that could wrap (and preserve)

meat—early Tupperware, as it were. Wealthy Romans packed their pies with oysters and other mollusks, and even bloodsucking lampreys. The first “published” recipe came from the Roman Cato the Censor, for a goat cheese and honey pie. As the Roman Empire spread north through Europe, so, too, did pie’s reach and popularity. More often than not, early pies were filled with meat. In the medieval royal courts of England and France, where banquets were run like circuses, royal chefs would place live animals into gargantuan pies to “wow” jaded guests. According to the American Pie Council, fruit pies or tarts (“pasties”) were probably first cooked up in the 1500s, when English pastries brimmed with pears, quinces, and apples. English lore credits Queen Elizabeth I with making the first cherry pie. Pie shells

MISSISSIPPI MUD PIE It’s believed this one came about after World War II because it was made from ingredients— chocolate, butter, sugar, and other pantry staples—available at most local groceries. And that name? The chocolate crust reminded some of the muddy banks of the mighty Mississippi.

DERBY-PIE This chocolateand-walnut treat is traditionally eaten around the time of the Kentucky Derby. It was concocted about 50 years ago by the manager of a Kentucky inn (its name has since been trademarked).

OLALLIEBERRY PIE The “olallie” (a youngberry-loganberry cross) was developed at Oregon State University in 1949; not long after, it was put in a pie. This red, knobby fruit, grown on the California coast, delivers a not-too-tart, not-too-sweet flavor.

SWEET POTATO PIE In 1936, George Washington Carver tried to trace the origin of the sweet potato but failed to find an answer. But he did list all known uses of the crop, including his own pie recipes. North Carolina is the largest U.S. sweet potato producer.

APPLE PIE Pre-Revolutionary versions featured unsweetened fruit in an inedible crust. Now, America’s favorite (and Vermont’s state) pie is made from hundreds of apple varieties. The best ones for bakers are the Mutsu, Braeburn, Honey Crisp, and (perhaps tops) Northern Spy.

HOOSIER PIE An early mention of this sugar cream pie dates from 1816, the year Indiana gained statehood. It’s also known as “desperation pie,” since it can be baked with ingredients found on any farm.

Pilgrims’ Progress When the Pilgrims landed, they made use of the exotic ingredients they discovered around them. Since the sweet apples and other fruit found in England had not yet made it across the Atlantic, settlers turned to their Native American neighbors, who recommended a few tasty berries, among other suggestions. Resourceful colonial women heeded their advice. They added cranberries, eggs, and molasses to the belly-filling pies they served with every meal. When they ran out of fresh fruit, they substituted dried fruit. By the time of the Revolutionary War, cooks were using butter, sugar, and spices in their pastries, forever changing the dessert landscape in America. As sugar production grew, so did the popularity of sweet treats like lemon meringue pie. Fast Food on the Frontier As settlers headed west, they (like the early colonists) had to make do with the available resources. And so their pies were filled with local crops like huckleberries and pecans, or in the case of biscuit dough “pie”—the fast food of the wagon trail—possum and prairie oysters (i.e., bison testicles). The flood of immigrant families settling on the Great Plains after the land rush quickly learned to make American “prairie pies”—the original hyper-local pies, bulging with rhubarb, mulberries, and peaches. When fruit was scarce, the settlers turned to “vinegar pie”—a mix of vinegar, butter, sugar, eggs, and water. Down south, sweet potato pie was inspired, it is said, by the nourishing African yams that were brought along to feed the slaves on cargo ships bound for the New World. The pie safe—a wooden cabinet with punched tin door panels to keep air in and insects out—became the Weber Grill of its day, a fixture on back porches across the country. As American as ... By the turn of the 20th century, pie had become the undisputed symbol of American plenty and national pride. Women were judged by the quality of their pie crust. Every county fair had a pie

In Pennsylvania Dutch country, where farmers ate pie three times a day, a young man would often present an elaborately carved rolling pin as an engagement gift to his future wife. Regarding a University of Indianapolis debate over which greater served mankind, pie or ice cream, a 1902 New York Times editorial wrote: “Pie is the American synonym of prosperity, and its varying contents the calendar of the changing seasons. Pie is the food of the heroic. No pie-eating people can ever be permanently vanquished. It is a significant historical fact that England’s glory was greatest in the days when her gallant sons ate pie.” It’s unclear who coined the expression “as American as apple pie.” But the phrase has undoubtedly been with us awhile. Some say it was growers trying to push apple consumption during Prohibition, when hard cider was banned. One of the earliest recorded instances is attributed to an opera singer in Chicago, one Alice Gentle, who in 1921 solicited money from

Americans have eaten an entire pie by themselves. NNNNNNNNNNNN a millionaire to fund an American opera. The San Antonio Light reported Gentle saying that an American opera would be “as American as apple pie, wheat cakes, corn on the cob, one-night stands and mail-order houses.” Perhaps not surprisingly, only the apple pie part of the quote stuck. Later, during World War II, when GIs were asked what they were fighting for, the stock answer they always gave was “Mom and apple pie.”

THE DISH THAT PEOPLE GO OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS FOR.

Perfect Crust (From a Box!) Postwar, the pie landscape changed again, and dramatically, with the introduction of Pillsbury Pie Crust Mix. As American families moved into the suburbs and embraced the era of convenience in the kitchen, food companies joined the party, coming up with taglines like “For Quicker, Better Pies” and “You and Ann Pillsbury Can Make a Great Team.” Advertisers continued to capitalize on apple pie’s patriotic aura in the ’70s when the jingle “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet” hit the airwaves. By then, supermarket freezers were filled with frozen crusts. With hectic work schedules and continued on page 15

not enough time in the day, a generation of mothers grew up learning how to make “50-50” pies (frozen crust with homemade filling), a shift that has endured ever since. Today, pie is as iconic as ever, and though there are plenty of shortcuts, baking a homemade pie is still a feat to be proud of. That’s why so many virgin bakers dance around their first pie dough. Pie symbolizes everything we value: ingenuity, resilience, and a mother’s love. Who wants to fail at those?

We Still Love It And besides, pie makes people happy. Just saying it aloud draws a smile as wide as a barn door. There’s something profoundly familiar about pie. It was there in the beginning and it has stuck with us, evolving and adapting at every step of our nation’s journey. Five years ago, I was asked to run the small farmers’ market in my hometown on the Hudson River, just north of New York City. The first thing I did was organize an apple pie contest. The market committee was skeptical. Would busy people find time to bake pie during soccer season? To our surprise, 27 pies rolled in: lattice pies, cast-iron skillet pies, apple crumb pies. The bakers ranged in age from 4 to 90, and each had written a story to go with their entry, per the contest rules.

the household finances. Meg Curtis, of Hillsborough, N.H., knew something was gravely wrong in April 2006 when her 59-year-old husband, Skip, announced that the home they’d lived in for a decade was facing foreclosure. Once meticulous about bookkeeping, he hadn’t paid the bills in months and, confused, threw away the past-due notices that followed.

Could It Be Alzheimer’s? Tennessee coach Pat Summitt’s diagnosis made a lot of folks wonder whether they could have the disease, too. Here’s how to distinguish the typical middle-aged brain from one in the early stages of dementia. By Beth Macy

■ What’s normal: Misplacing your

car keys or having a meeting slip your mind.

Sometimes having trouble summoning the right word. ■ What’s not: Repeatedly losing the thread of a story. Retired air force chaplain Meredith Thomas was known for his brilliant, moving sermons and storytelling. So his daughter Deb Thomas was shocked when she sat in on a service while visiting home and found that “it was full of non sequiturs, as if he’d been reading a book and just skipped 75 pages.” Within a year, the 60-year-old Lincoln, Neb., minister was unable to speak. ■ What’s normal:

■ What’s not:

Failing to remember standing appointments or becoming confused in your field of expertise. Summitt reportedly showed up late to regularly scheduled practices and sometimes drew a blank on what play to call in the heat of a game—things she’d never done before. ■ What’s normal:

Occasionally forgetting to pay a bill on time. ■ What’s not: Losing control of

“Many [youngeronset sufferers] are still in the midst of their careers and might be caring for children and older relatives.” —Monica Moreno, Alzheimer’s Association

Needing help with a computer program or setting the DVR. ■ What’s not: Becoming disoriented in a system you had once mastered. In 2003, colleagues of 51-year-old Deborah Mayhew were concerned when the veteran court clerk uncharacteristically began making scheduling errors. A longtime marathon runner, Mayhew also started getting lost on runs outside the Roanoke, Va., YMCA, where she’d been training for years. Once, she was locked out of her car and called a friend for help—only to discover that the key was where she always kept it when she went running: tied on her shoestring.

When legendary Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt announced in August that she’d been diagnosed with youngeronset Alzheimer’s at age 59, it gave many middle-aged Americans pause. After all, who doesn’t occasionally lose their car keys or forget a dentist’s appointment? And younger-onset is particularly devastating. “Many people with that condition are still in the midst of their careers, and they might be caring for children and older relatives,” says Monica Moreno, director of early-stage initiatives at the Alzheimer’s Association. The disease can also take longer to diagnose in midlife because other health issues that can cause similar symptoms (such as thyroid disease, vitamin B-12 deficiency, or depression) must be ruled out first. We all experience “senior moments” as we get older, but experts say there are some important differences between benign memory lapses—momentarily forgetting a person’s name, say—and the first warning signs of Alzheimer’s.

Important: Know your insulin. Do not change the type of insulin you use unless told to do so by your healthcare provider. The amount of insulin you take as well as the best time for you to take your insulin may need to change if you take a different type of insulin. Make sure you know the type and strength of insulin prescribed for you.

Your reply to the question about the 25,000-mile band around the earth was so counterintuitive that I thought you had lost your edge. Then I did the math and learned that you were correct. Yet the answer still seems wrong to me. My question: Why do we cling to beliefs even after seeing facts that contradict them? —Steve Morris, Lincoln, Neb.

Because people get freaked out by the notion of being wrong about anything. It makes them feel insecure. If you can be wrong about this or that, what about all the other stuff you think you know? And the more important the subject, the more unnerving the emotion. It’s not too scary to be incorrect about a math concept, but how about the car you bought? Or the doctor you chose? Your question goes to the heart of much unsound thinking. After we leave school, we tend to head down one of two roads: (1) We close our minds to new or different information while becoming more and more sure of ourselves; or (2) we watch, listen, and learn as we get older.

BY THE NUMBERS

Prediabetes doesn’t always lead to full-blown diabetes. Also known as impaired glucose tolerance, prediabetes simply means that the amount of glucose— that is, sugar—in your blood is higher than it should be but not high enough to qualify as type 2 diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, making three lifestyle changes— losing weight, watching your diet, and exercising— can increase your

3 THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT …

Exercise is just as crucial as diet. Here’s where insulin comes in: This hormone helps transport glucose from your blood into your body’s cells, which burn the sugar for energy. When you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, either your body doesn’t produce enough insulin or your cells don’t use it efficiently; as a result, glucose builds up in the blood. When you exercise and lose weight, your body is better able to employ its supply of insulin (or decrease “insulin resistance”), making it easier to control blood sugar levels.

I’M THE OPPOSITE OF STANDOFFISH. IT’S EASY TO BE NICE. YOU’VE GOT TO TRY HARD NOT TO BE NICE.”

or vince gill,

being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007 offered a challenge more than a segue into retirement. “It made me want to earn it even more,” says the 54year-old singer-songwriter, who recently released his first new album in five years, Guitar Slinger. “Resting on your laurels is pointless. You might as well go jump in the big pine box.” Mary Margaret caught up with Gill in the midst of touring—“a rough stretch,” he says, that will keep him apart from wife Amy Grant for 70 nights. “But we’re both working hard, and we talk two or three times a day.”

it’s right across the street from the YMCA, where I work out with my trainer a few days a week. Then I go and eat and hope I broke even.

What made you start watching your weight?

I came to the realization that you don’t see a lot of really old heavy people. So my goal is to be a skinny old man. I’m down about 25 pounds this year. Do you have a favorite te diet breaker?

I love bad food, and pizza is about as good as it gets. It has to have meat on it; I think pizza with vegetables is kind of an oxymoron.

PARADE Guitar Slinger is the first

I got to take my timee and do most of it barefoot. I just found d this bust of Elvis in storage, and I’m going to put it front and center so he can n oversee the recording process from now on. I really like the guy, but I love the humor of it, too. I’ve also got a velvet painting of Elvis hanging in the garage. Your oldest child, Jenny, got married last year. What advice did you give her?

If you can spend your life not worrying about who’s right, you’ll go a long way. You don’t always have to be right—it doesn’t really matter. 22 • November 13, 2011

What makes you angry?

I really fire on somebody if they treat my friends wrong. I can have a pretty short fuse. But I’m hardest on myself—if I don’t get to the level [I’m capable of ].

Vince Gill

Are you still playing a lot of golf?

T country star riffs on golf, Elvis, The and the joys of breakfast You and Amy have been married more than 11 years. How do you keep your love story going?

The bottom line is that we’re still absolutely nuts about each other. We were from the first time we met. It was just freakish—like nothing I’d ever seen or felt. It’s amazing how beautiful life can be when someone’s kind to you.

What’s your Sunday routine like?

I absolutely love breakfast and go to the same place, Noshville, every day. It gets busy on the weekends, so I wind up sitting at the counter. Amy’s not as big a breakfast eater as I am, so sometimes Corinna [the couple’s 10-year-old daughter] goes with me. I know all the servers, and

I’m crazy about it and shoot around par most of the time. It’s a game you can never get perfectly right—you could shoot the best round in your life and still go, “Well, if I’d made that putt, and that one, I’d have been even lower.” If you had to choose: musician or pro golfer?

I had aspirations of being good enough to play golf professionally, but I’d rather be a musician. They get better-looking girls.
