The lining of your uterus, your endometrium, is like a garden bed where a pregnancy can be planted. But other things sometimes grow there, too—including cancerous cells. Endometrial cancer affects more than 635,000 women in the US, but there's no standard screening test designed to catch it.

"Pap tests don't check for or find endometrial cancer, and most women who get it have normal Paps," says Nita Karnik Lee, MD, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Chicago Medicine. In order to detect the disease, your doctor would have to order a transvaginal ultrasound or CT scan (along with a biopsy)—which of course isn't standard or advisable unless there's a strong reason to suspect you might have cancer.

To protect yourself, start by knowing your risk factors: You can get endometrial cancer anytime, but it's most common between ages 45-74. Being overweight, having diabetes, and taking estrogen-only hormones ups your risk. So does going through menopause later than normal or having gotten your first period at an extra young age.

But the most important thing you can do, really, is to know the warning signs. (If you catch endometrial cancer early, it's highly curable.) Here are some worth bringing to your doc's attention:

Home Remedies for Fatty Liver Disease

In simple terms, fatty liver disease means an accumulation of fat in the cells of the liver. It’s normal to have fat in the liver, but when more than 5 to 10 percent is fat, it can be considered fatty liver disease. A buildup of fat in the liver makes it vulnerable to further injury, which can cause inflammation and scarring.

There are two types of fatty liver disease: alcohol-induced and nonalcoholic. The main cause behind alcohol-induced fatty liver is excessive alcohol consumption. In nonalcoholic fatty liver, fat builds up in the liver for reasons unrelated to alcohol.

Apart from excessive alcohol consumption, risk factors for fatty liver disease include high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, viral hepatitis, rapid weight loss and malnutrition.
What Is Acid Reflux Disease?

If you have heartburn or regurgitation at least twice a week for multiple weeks, then your symptoms fit the typical definition of acid reflux disease. This condition is one of the most common diseases on the planet among adults, with a prevalence in the United States and Europe of 10 to 20 percent of the population, according to a study published in the June 2014 issue of Gut. Acid reflux is a miserable disease, not only profoundly affecting quality of life, but also causing a huge economic burden. The cost of the diagnosis and treatment is colossal — to the tune of about $40 billion annually.

There are two basic types of acid reflux disease: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD). As the name suggests, the main source of the problem with acid reflux disease is stomach acid. The primary difference between the two types is the location in which the acid travels, either up to the esophagus (GERD) or further up to the throat (LPRD).

Amyloidosis: Prognosis, Survival Rate, Treatment, Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis

The body can encounter a peculiar and rare condition in which, abnormal proteins within the body known as amyloid, get deposited in different bodily tissues and organs. These abnormal proteins have a tendency to become amino acids, but they gradually fold themselves and take a three dimensional structure. If these three dimensional and folded amyloids come together and start to perform different functions by themselves, they can stop the normal functions of the cells and tissues and organs. This condition is called Amyloidosis. Once the proteins start to club together, it becomes quite difficult to break them down. Amyloidosis is a very rare disease that occurs in only 1,500 to 2,500 people in the United States of America.

Jet Lag Symptoms and Causes

Jet lag, also called jet lag disorder, is a temporary sleep problem that can affect anyone who quickly travels across multiple time zones.
Your body has its own internal clock, or circadian rhythms, that signals your body when to stay awake and when to sleep. Jet lag occurs because your body's clock is still synced to your original time zone, instead of to the time zone where you've traveled. The more time zones crossed, the more likely you are to experience jet lag.
Jet lag can cause daytime fatigue, an unwell feeling, difficulty staying alert and gastrointestinal problems. Jet lag is temporary, but it can significantly reduce your vacation or business travel comfort. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help prevent or minimize jet lag.
