Occasional Dry Eye: The Often-Ignored Menopause Symptom

While hot flashes, loss of libido and sleeplessness always are associated with declining levels of estrogen and other hormones during menopause, occasional dry eye is another common symptom that gets little, if no, attention! Recognizing the importance of our eyes to our overall health and well being, FabOverFifty is partnering with EyePromise during Menopause Awareness Month.

Both men and women past the age of 50 experience increased dryness in their eyes, but the condition is nearly twice as likely to occur in women,” says Sean Mulqueeny, O.D. of Mulqueeny Eye Centers in St. Louis. “It’s a result of the decrease of the hormone androgen, which causes the eyes to lose moisture.”

Would You Want To Know If You Had Alzheimer’s?

That’s a hard question. On one hand, yes, so that I could prepare my family and make sure that they understand about this dreadful illness.

“There’s No Way I Could Have Syphilis!”

“There’s no way I could have syphilis,” you say. “That’s what YOU think!” I say.

Deb, in her 70s, had a long-term affair with a man (we’ll call him Eddie) who used to make frequent business trips to Bangkok with his boss, and he told her, more than once, how Mr. Boss Man would pay to have sex with teenage girls. “The girls would be on show behind one-way glass,” Deb remembers her boyfriend telling her, “and his boss would choose the one he wanted.”

A few years ago, Deb’s doctor recommended that she have an STD panel (as in sexually transmitted diseases), to rule out the possibility that she had syphilis, among other diseases.  “I told my doctor that was crazy, how could I possibly have syphilis,” Deb said, “but she responded that women or men who’ve had unprotected intercourse (anal, oral or vaginal) with more than one partner should be tested, so I went ahead and had my blood taken.” (more…)

What To Do If You’re Uncomfortable Driving At Night

Geri is one of the 40% of people over 40 who feel uncomfortable driving at night. See why she avoided driving after dark, and what she did to start feeling secure again behind the wheel!

Changes to our eyes occur gradually, over decades, until we suddenly realize we simply don’t see as well as we used to. As we age, our pupils shrink and dilate less in the dark, which reduces the amount of light entering our eyes. This can even make it seem as if we’re wearing dark sunglasses at night. (more…)

June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, and we want to bring you some important truths about this progressive and fatal brain disease.

geri“It’s time to break the taboo and talk about Alzheimer’s,” says Geri Brin, founder of FabOverFifty.com. “When I interviewed Dr. Keith Black, head of Neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, I learned a great deal about this horrific disease, including the new tests and treatments that are becoming available to us. As our generation ages, it’s important for us to understand all our options for coping with Alzheimer’s.”
spacerThe sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., Alzheimer’s cannot be prevented or cured. This fatal disease progresses by attacking and killing nerve cells and tissue in our brain, affecting one’s ability to remember, think and plan. (more…)
