A twist of fate - your penis isn't like most of the others I strongly recommend anyone with this problem to look at and join the relevant support groups (see links below) - you will learn you are not alone! Teenager with hypospadias or epispadias? Try this support group Hypospadias, which is an accident of birth, is a condition where the opening of the penis is found somewhere back along the shaft, anywhere from tip to base, and it is often accompanied by other differences such as penile twisting, a "hooked" appearance because the glans bends down, and a hooded, incomplete foreskin. There is little information about it on the net, and I hope that this page will be useful to those who have this challenge. Hypospadias may not be that well known, but for the men who experience it, the consequences can be devastating, because it strikes at the root of "normality" - and, as I suggested on the Size page, for most men, being up there with the rest of mankind is a crucial issue. The text below is written by a man with personal experience of hypospadias.

A publication of the American Diabetes Association/Florida Affiliate, Inc./Southeast Region. This point was strikingly demonstrated by the PROCAM (Prospective Cardiovascular Munster) Study, in which the relationship between various cardiac risk factors and the incidence of heart attack over a four year period was examined in 2,754 men aged 40-65 years. The results showed that the presence of diabetes or high blood pressure alone increased the risk of heart attack by 2.5 times. When both diabetes and high blood pressure were present, the risk was increased 8 times. An abnormal lipid profile increased the risk 16 times; when abnormal lipid levels were present with high blood pressure and/or diabetes, the risk was 20 times higher. Treatment for the described metabolic syndrome therefore aims at treating all of: the features of the syndrome that exist in a given person.

Extractions: Cushing's syndrome is a hormonal disorder caused by prolonged exposure of the body's tissues to high levels of the hormone cortisol. Sometimes called "hypercortisolism," it is relatively rare and most commonly affects adults aged 20 to 50. An estimated 10 to 15 of every million people are affected each year. Symptoms vary, but most people have upper body obesity, rounded face, increased fat around the neck, and thinning arms and legs. Children tend to be obese with slowed growth rates. Other symptoms appear in the skin, which becomes fragile and thin. It bruises easily and heals poorly. Purplish pink stretch marks may appear on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms and breasts. The bones are weakened, and routine activities such as bending, lifting or rising from a chair may lead to backaches, rib and spinal column fractures. Most people have severe fatigue, weak muscles, high blood pressure and high blood sugar. Irritability, anxiety and depression are common.

Je songeais à mon petit frère Edward et dans l'oeil de mon esprit apparaissait le reflet de son nom." Elizabeth Stewart-Jones, une peintre galloise de 83 ans, possède l'étrange faculté de synesthésie, terme générique d'un trouble sensoriel où un stimulus donné déclenche une tout autre sensation dans le corps. Pour Mrs Stewart-Jones, ce sont les mots qui provoquent ces visions; d'autres réagissent aux sons, aux notes de musique ou aux lettres prononcées. "Je n'ai pas besoin de fermer les yeux, poursuit elle. Les couleurs sont juste là, automatiquement, dans l'oeil de mon esprit, après que les mots ont été prononcés, lus ou pensés." Pour le nom "Mo

We require much of our small intestine to comfortably absorb enough water, vitamins, and other food nutrients to stay healthy. But, for those who have had at least half their small intestine removed during surgery, absorbing nutrients and controlling the flow of fluid and food through the digestive tract can become very difficult. The problems associated with a shortened small intestine are known as short bowel syndrome, and the effects of this syndrome can range from mild to life threatening. Below, Dr. Uma Sundaram, Professor of Internal Medicine at University of Rochester School of Medicine, talks about the characteristics of short bowel syndrome, and how to treat it.
