Pandemic Has Overburdened Parents Stressed Out: Poll

Pandemic Has Overburdened Parents Stressed Out: PollFRIDAY, May 22, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- If there's such a thing as a "new normal" during the coronavirus pandemic, it's a constant state of stress. And it's particularly intense for many parents who are keeping house, working from home, and trying to keep their kids' online learning on track at the same time, according to a new online survey. Nearly half (46%) of respondents who have kids younger than 18 said their average stress level is high these days. Only 28% of adults without minor children said the same, according to the online poll of more than 3,000 adults. It was conducted from April 24 to May 4. The 2020 Stress in America poll is the first of at least three planned to gauge pandemic-related stress. "The mental health ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic are immense...

Keeping Kids Slim, Fit During Lockdown Isn`t Easy: Here Are Some TipsTHURSDAY, May 21, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Lots of TV time, no PE classes, and a fridge full of food: It's a recipe for weight gain for kids under "stay at home" rules. But there are ways parents can help them stay healthy, says registered dietitian Audrey Koltun. "During quarantine, we hear we should try to stay healthy, not overeat, and exercise, but it is easier said than done," said Koltun, who's also a diabetes care and education specialist at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New Hyde Park, N.Y. When it comes to kids' diets, having to stay at home might have some advantages, she noted. "Many people are cooking much more than they ever did," Koltun said, and "this allows more control over caloric intake and possibly healthier options." Children just don't have the same...

With PSA Test Out of Favor, Cases of Advanced Prostate Cancer Are RisingWEDNESDAY, May 20, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Prostate cancer screening guidelines have been evolving for more than a decade, but new research suggests that recommendations against routine prostate cancer testing may have come at a steep price -- more men getting diagnosed with advanced prostate cancers. The study found that rates of advanced prostate cancers rose by about 5% per year through 2016. There was some good news, though. After routine use of the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test was no longer recommended for the majority of men, rates of early prostate cancer went down by 6.9% per year in men between 50 and 74 years old. (Early prostate cancers may be very slow-growing and may not need treatment.) "Men have to talk with their providers. They have to make sure they...

Don`t Delay If Cancer Symptoms Appear – Call Your DoctorMONDAY, May 18, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The coronavirus pandemic has many people putting off medical appointments, but if you have possible cancer symptoms, don't delay. A small lump in a breast, blood in your stool or an odd-looking mole, for example, should not be ignored, according to experts at Cedars-Sinai Health System in Los Angeles. "We're seeing a concerning trend that some cancer diagnoses are being delayed because of perceived disruptions of care due to COVID-19," said Dr. Dan Theodorescu, director of Cedars-Sinai Cancer. "I strongly encourage anyone who suspects they might have cancer to get in touch with their physicians, as the use of telemedicine or other available physical-distancing tools will allow them to get medical help immediately," he said in a health...

Pandemic Lockdown Increases Child Abuse Risk

Pandemic Lockdown Increases Child Abuse RiskTUESDAY, May 12, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Hunkering down during the coronavirus pandemic has stressed families and raised the risk for child abuse, Penn State researchers report. "We're very worried about children becoming more seriously injured over longer periods of time before they can get treatment," said Dr. Lori Frasier, chief of the division of child abuse pediatrics at Penn State Children's Hospital. Data from ChildLine, part of the Pennsylvania child protective services program, show 30% to 50% fewer reports of child abuse from the three weeks before state-mandated COVID-19 restrictions to the first three weeks after closures. Yet that's different from what Frasier found. "Most reports to ChildLine are made by mandated reporters -- teachers, doctors and psychologists,...
