MCMC to honor
Conrad
By Martin Slagter
Pioneer Staff Writer
BIG RAPIDS — The Mecosta
County Medical Center Auxiliary
will honor volunteer Rita Conrad
for 25 years of service during
its spring brunch at 10:30 a.m.
on Saturday at Pere Marquette
Catering Company.
Conrad, who is stepping down
so that she can spend more time
traveling with her husband,
Jerry, will be recognized during
the brunch for her work as a
buyer for the MCMC Auxiliary
Gift Shop. MCMC Director of
Community Relations Tom
Hogenson said during Conrad’s
time as a volunteer, interest
in merchandise has increased
while proceeds have steadily
multiplied.
“Speaking for MCMC, and
I believe, her Auxilian
colleagues, I believe it is fair to
say that the privilege and the
pleasure has been mutual and
much appreciated,” he said.
“(Increased proceeds for the
gift shop is) sure evidence of
satisfaction with our products
and consumer convenience as
the gift shop has evolved along
with the Medical Center.”
Conrad’s work with the gift shop
truly has been a labor of love,
and something she has always
been interested in contributing
to, she said.
“I was surprised that (the
Auxiliary) was doing this and I’m
very honored,” she said. “I feel
like the honor should go to all of
the people that have volunteered
at the gift shop. It’s a very loyal
following.”
In addition to her volunteer
work with the Auxiliary, Conrad
volunteers as the chair of the
scholarship committee for the
Mecosta County Community
Foundation. She also has
served as a member of the Big
Rapids Public Schools Board of
Education and Mecosta-Osceola
Intermediate School District
Board of Education.
Auxiliary President Judy
Hays said Conrad’s infectious
energy and spirit have helped
the gift shop undergo a
significant change since she has
volunteered.
“Anyone can tell, just by looking
around (the gift shop), what a
tremendous job she has done,”
she said. “She was instrumental
in getting them to expand the
gift shop when the hospital was
renovating.”
Women, It’s Not
Your Fault That
You’re Gaining
Weight
(NewsUSA) - Many women
report the same story -- after
menopause, they gain weight
around their abdomen, no
matter how little they eat or how
much they exercise.
These women aren’t going
insane -- research suggests that
menopause causes weight gain.
According to Dr. Caroline J.
Cederquist, M.D., designer of the
Bistro M.D. weight-loss program,
a recent animal experiment
revealed a link between changing
estrogen levels and weight gain.
When estrogen levels dropped
in the brain, laboratory animals
gained weight around their
abdomens, even when fed the
same amount of food. Why?
The animals developed insulin
resistance, a metabolic condition
that signals the body to store
carbohydrates as fat, rather than
use them to fuel muscles.
“Insulin resistance develops in
most people as they age, but
women experience the onset
more dramatically than men
due to the hormonal changes
of menopause,” explains Dr.
Cederquist.
Unfortunately, insulin resistance
can negatively affect women’s
health. Insulin resistance causes
yet more insulin resistance,
as the fat that accrues in the
abdomen secretes hormones
that encourage more fat
storage, which increases
insulin resistance. Abdominal
fat increases the risk of
cardiovascular disease, diabetes,
high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, stroke and several
types of cancer. Abdominal fat
increases bad cholesterol, lowers
good cholesterol and releases
inflammatory hormones that
contribute to heart disease.
Hormone replacement therapy
does not help -- but dietary
changes can help menopausal
women manage their weight.
Dr. Cederquist recommends a
diet in which women monitor
the amount and timing of
carbohydrates. “A woman who
could previously eat a breakfast
of cereal and fruit when she
was insulin sensitive will find
she rapidly gains weight with
the same meal if she is insulin
resistant.”
Women also need to consume
adequate lean protein, though
Dr. Cederquist emphasizes
that they might consider the
Bistro M.D. diet plan. “Women
who work with me learn that
adequate protein is not excessive
protein, and that all protein does
not have to be sourced from
meat.”

Hip and Knee Pain:
When is it Time to
Consider Surgery?
(NewsUSA) - Chronic joint aches
and pains caused by arthritis
can interfere with everyday life,
limiting mobility and function.
In early stages of arthritis,
pain relief can be obtained
from acetaminophen and anti-
inflammatory drugs like aspirin,
naproxen and ibuprofen or, for
some, injections into the joint
(intra-articular injections).
However, when arthritis
progresses, the cartilage between
the bones disappears, and the
joint is “bone on bone.” At
this stage, these conservative
measures may not be enough.
“As the progression of
arthritis cannot be stopped,
patients should consider joint
replacement surgery when the
pain in an arthritic joint is severe
and disabling,” says Alejandro
González Della Valle, M.D.,
orthopaedic surgeon at Hospital
for Special Surgery in New York.
The criteria used for
recommending joint replacement
surgery include disabling pain
associated with limp, loss of
function and mobility. The best
candidates for surgery are people
who have seen deterioration
in their quality of life or
impairment in their activities
of daily living due to arthritic
pain. Activities such as going
for a walk or performing some
non-impact recreational sports
should not be difficult for people
without major health problems.
Before arthritic pain is severe
enough to consider surgery,
some simple measures can be
implemented to diminish pain
and promote joint health.
* Respect the pain you feel.
Perform activities only to the
point of discomfort.
* Plan ahead and be realistic
about what you can do.
* Learn how to pick things up
properly. Bend from the knees
when lifting and carrying weights
more than 30-40 pounds.
* Reduce repetitive impact on
joints, and distribute weight
among them to protect joints.
* When walking more than four
or five miles, wear well-padded
shoes with rubber soles.
* Think about your weight. The
impact on your joints will be
less detrimental if you are not
carrying extra weight.
“No one is too young or too old
for joint replacement,” says
Douglas E. Padgett, M.D., chief
of the Adult Reconstruction
and Joint Replacement
Service at Hospital for Special
Surgery. “Every condition
can be addressed, even when
compounded by other medical
conditions.”
The Adult Reconstruction and
Joint Replacement Service at
Hospital for Special Surgery is
the world leader in hip, knee
and surgical arthritis patient
treatment, education, innovation
and research. For more

Program Teaches
EMS Workers About
Epilepsy
(NewsUSA) - When the average
citizen sees someone pass out
or start convulsing, their first
instinct is probably to dial 9-1-
1. Unfortunately, too many
emergency medical services
(EMS) personnel do not know
how to recognize or treat a
person experiencing a seizure.
When someone is having a
seizure they often become
confused, cannot communicate
and do not understand or
respond to questions or orders.
Forceful methods of restraint,
such as tasering, hog-tying,
facedown holds and choke holds
can put people with epilepsy
in serious danger. Tragically,

there have even been deaths of
people who had a seizure when
first responders didn’t recognize
that the symptoms they were
responding to were the signs of a
seizure.
Nearly 3 million people live with
epilepsy in the United States,
so it’s especially important
that first responders recognize
seizure symptoms. Through a
partnership with The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), the Epilepsy Foundation
has launched a national EMS
training program to give first
responders the skills they need
to effectively and appropriately
respond to individuals having
seizures.
The program, currently in
pilot with select local affiliates
across the country, will teach
more than 600 first responders
in Northern California how to
appropriately respond to persons
having seizures. In Alabama, four
junior colleges are incorporating
the curriculum into their EMS
program. The Foundation is
using e-mail, e-newsletters,
national conference presentations
and first-responder Web sites to
inform as many EMS personnel
as possible about this new
training program.
First responders must
understand the signs and
intervention techniques that are
appropriate for people having
seizures to ensure safe and
supportive emergency care for
their clients.
For more information, visit www.
epilepsyfoundation.org.
Tips to Keep Packed
Food Cold This
Summer
(NewsUSA) - For millions of
families, the coming summer
season means activities -- and
lots of them. From the beach,
to the pool, to games, camping,
picnics and backyard barbecues,
it’s often a mad dash from one
adventure to the next with no
break in between. Coolers have
become the must-have summer
accessory for busy families,
helping to keep food and drinks
cold as they travel from place
to place. And under the current
economic conditions, more
people are relying on coolers to
keep their meal costs down.
Of course, not all coolers
are created equal. California
Innovations has engineered
insulated coolers that withstand
the rigors of summer. And to
help people get the most out of
their coolers, they’re offering the
following tips:
* Use a high-performance cooler.
Arctic Zone IceCOLD coolers
use radiant barrier technology to
deflect heat from the sun, helping
the interior of the cooler stay
cold.
* Pack a lot. Don’t be afraid to
pack your cooler to the max,
because that cuts off the flow of
air, which can warm the cooler.
The tighter the fit, the less air is
able to circulate.
* Keep the cooler in the shade
as much as possible. Heat from
the sun will warm up your cooler
faster. So stick it under a tree or
an umbrella to protect it from the
sun’s rays.
* Place the cooler on a table or
blanket. The ground absorbs heat
and transfers it directly to your
cooler. Keeping it elevated makes
it tougher for the warm air to get
in.
* Always keep the cooler closed
when not in use. It’s easy to
forget, but even a few minutes
can make the difference between
having ice or water. Using a
cooler with zipperless technology
makes it easier to open and close
quickly.
* Use plenty of ice or ice packs.
The more ice you pack, the longer
the contents stay cool.
* For faster cooling, add a little
extra water to the ice. The water
aids in surface conduction, which
speeds up the cooling process.
However, this method can also
cause the ice to melt faster.
To find the right cooler for
you this summer, go to www.
californiainnovations.com.
