Summer should be in full swing by the time you read this, so we’ve got lots of great fitness, food and beauty products in this issue to help you make the most of your days. But while most of us love the summer, for some, the heat isn’t always so welcome. Plenty of women approaching or having reached menopause find that summer can exacerbate hot flushes. And with perimenopause starting anywhere in our forties, and symptoms sometimes lasting right up to our late 50s, that’s an awful lot of women being affected. It’s no wonder menopause has become one of the hottest (no pun intentended) women’s health topics. Our special 15-page menopause section (p41) contains a plethora of tips and advice for navigating this natural yet sometimes difficult phase of…

EARLY DINNER FOR WINNERS! Summer months can make later evening meals seem enticing, but try to resist their lure to keep your weight and blood sugar stable. Research from the Endocrine Society has demonstrated that late dinners can affect your glucose tolerance and reduce the amount of fat you burn. Those tested ate supper at either 6pm or 10pm, and the later eaters had higher blood sugar even when eating the same foods. WANT TO LIVE A LONGER, HEALTHIER LIFE? Who doesn’t? The two key factors that determine your longevity are having an active social network, and not smoking, according to a study from New Zealand. Making and maintaining friendships is one of the best decisions you can make for your health. Researchers say that visiting friends, volunteering or even playing golf are…

covid-19 testing on trial

ARE YOU THINKING of taking a coronavirus test? If so, you might be wondering whether you need a swab test or a blood test. Or perhaps you’ve seen reports of unreliable results? Coronavirus testing can be a confusing subject. But fast and accurate disease detection is essential for containing and stamping out the virus. That’s because quickly identifying pockets of infection means the virus can be squashed at a local level before it has the chance to spread more widely. If you think you have symptoms, it’s best to do a swab test, which uses a small fibre-tipped stick. According to the NHS, Covid-19 symptoms include a high temperature, a new and continuous cough, and the loss of smell or taste. A swab test tells you whether or not you are…

antigen tests

Antigen tests are another type of nose and throat swab test to see whether you’re currently infected. It’s a rapid test with results available in minutes. The downside is antigen tests are not as sensitive as PCR swab tests, so may produce false negatives. The UK currently doesn’t have any validated antigen tests (as of June 2020). Though they are in development and should become available in time. PCR tests have been inaccurately called antigen tests in some sources. The two are similar but don’t work in quite the same way. PCR tests copy the virus genome, rather than detecting a specific virus protein as antigen tests do.…
