S03_E10 - Getting a Better Understanding of ALS

ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a rare but serious condition that affects around 5 people in every 100,000, but due to its devastating effects on both the patient and the caregivers, it's something that certainly merits a deeper conversation.  Lou Gehrig and Steven Hawking may be the two most well-known cases...

S03_E09 - Cholesterol:  The Good, The Bad and the Triglycerides...

Cholesterol can be a confusing subject for many of us.  And, as many of us can attest to, seeing the results from a lipid panel can be like reading a foreign language.  What's a safe range?  Does good cholesterol cancel out the bad?  And what is a lipid, anyway? 

It turns out cholesterol...

S03_E08 - Getting our Brains Around TBI and Concussions

Brains!  We've all got 'em.  (Well, perhaps some of us more than others...)  But it's estimated that almost 50% (!) of all adults in the U.S. have experienced a concussive event or some sort of traumatic brain injury in their lifetime.  That's a staggering statistic, and on Episode 8 of the sho...

S03_E07 - The Bone Zone: Insights on Osteoporosis and Healthy Bones

Ever wonder why we shrink in old age?  Is it true that astronauts lose bone mass in space?  And does all milk have the same amount of calcium?  There are over 200 bones in the human body and it's safe to say each plays a pretty important role, so of course it's important to keep them healthy...

S03_E06 - Let's Talk IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)

It's not uncommon that the terms IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) get confused.  Both have to do with your guts, both have impacted the lives of many in today's society and both could probably be explained a bit more.   We plan on getting to both of them, but for sta...

Happy New Year to all, and best wishes for sticking with those resolutions!

Although a new year gives us a fresh start for many things, regrettably, that doesn't apply to everything.  Some issues in our communities know no bounds, transcending ages and communities and affecting all walks of life.  Perhaps one of...

In Greek mythology, Prometheus' punishment for stealing fire from Zeus was to be chained to a rock where every day an eagle would come and eat part of his liver (harsh!).  And since the liver is the only solid organ in the human body that grows back, that eagle must have been pretty well-fed.  But why do we even need a liver?  What ha...

There are seemingly as many careers in medicine as there are lakes in Minnesota (and we're talking well over 10,000 of those...), but many of the most intense jobs in the field are found in the Emergency Department.  It takes a certain kind of person to want to become a physician, and on another level to want t...

Kidneys.  They made Dr. Hilden's top 3 favorite organ list in a recent poll - but why?  What do they actually do?  What are kidney stones (and better yet, how can one best avoid them)?  And if we really only need one, why do we have two?
