Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #30

Posted:

Audience member Michelle had to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours and asks Dr. Oz if her heart rate of 30 at night is a problem.

Dr. Oz asks Michelle if there were symptoms. Michelle replies that she was having heart palpitations. Dr. Oz asserts that heart palpitations often suggest that the heart is going too fast, and that a resting heart rate below 30 is a problem. Dr. Oz also states a heart rate that is too slow usually results in dizziness or fainting spells, often corrected by medication or a pace maker.

Audience member Marianne had a piece of bone break-off from a disc in her back. After Marianne’s back surgery to remove the bone piece, she has had a painful lump on the opposite side of the surgery location.

Dr. Oz feels the affected area on Marianne and he thinks that it is just muscle that was displaced and moved, thus causing the discomfort. Dr. Oz explains that back surgeries are troublesome, usually causing less flexibility from scar tissue and tension in the discs.

Audience member Claudine is an obese diabetic who has an obese 19 year old daughter with a kidney condition. Claudine’s daughter blames her for her obesity and kidney problem. Claudine asks Dr. Oz how she can reverse their lifestyle into a healthy one.

Dr. Oz answers that she needs to act on her motivation, address the issues, and do something about it. Dr. Oz reinforces that when one is undergoing this kind of lifestyle change, that it is important to do it together as a family.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
