Fiona Rennie — Menopause Doc Dubai on Instagram — is a family medicine doctor at Dubai’s Genesis Healthcare Center in Dubai Science Park. Earlier this month, on The Livehealthy Podcast, she spoke about how women in the UAE are struggling with this transition, in part because the medical profession is so ill-equipped to deal with it, and why research is showing that menopause hormone therapy, aka HRT, is safer and more beneficial than ever. Her...

How can we better integrate our brain hemispheres for a smoother transition into menopause? Science, mathematics, music, our connection to ourselves, one another and the world is being erosively compartmentalized and automated. So, what does it matter? This is welcome news if we consider the way many of us think and live. In absolutes. Increasing productivity and utility. Moving through life with pleasure or displeasure as the guide. Great news for the left hemisphere of...

Dr Stephen Grobmyer comes armed with slides bearing a ton of medical information and statistics, and a most reassuring demeanor. If I had to get a breast cancer diagnosis, I might want it to come from him — chair of the oncology unit, professor of surgery and director of breast cancer surgery at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.  He’s speaking to dozens of women, alongside his colleague, Dr M Jean Uy-Kroh, chief of physician staff affairs and...

Carole Guigon, 55, ignored a continuous nagging pain in her chest and breathing difficulty for three days — until she started coughing blood. It turns out she was having a massive heart attack. And if she had not gone to hospital, her chances of surviving would have been nil. “It all started with a breathing difficulty and I never really paid attention to it, but when I started to cough blood, I visited the doctor,...

Concerns over new Covid-19 variants becoming resistant to antibodies are spurring interest in finding out more about the body’s own immune responses — both to vaccines and to natural infection — as future protection against the virus.  Scientists working in Abu Dhabi are hoping T-cells, which are a group of white blood cells that target and destroy cells as they become infected with viruses, can provide immunity against Covid-19. They believe T-cells could be more...

Buy any pair of eyeglasses these days, and the optician will ask if you want a blue-light film to block out certain wavelengths of light. But is that enough? And what about versions that go further, with yellow, red or amber lenses? The American bio-hacker, Dave Asprey, is rarely seen without his orange-lensed TruDarks, which the company he owns promises are like noise-cancelling headphones for your eyes.  But are these glasses, which enthusiastic reviewers on...
