Low testosterone in younger men should be treated correctly

Typically, we think of lower testosterone levels as being an issue for men who are around 50 years of age or older. However, it is possible for men much younger to experience low testosterone. Given that there is so much paid publicity circulating through the media about testosterone therapy, a younger man may seek this treatment without realizing that it is not the best medical solution to his issues.

The best way to treat any medical problem is to have that problem properly diagnosed. There are a number of reasons a younger man's testosterone level may dip. A doctor, who is the chairman of the urology department of a New York City hospital, says that one of the possible culprits could be type 2 diabetes.

Health care-associated infections can prove fatal

When a family member is hospitalized, you hope that they are able to receive treatment that will help resolve their medical issues. But even if your loved one successfully undergoes surgery or other treatment, he or she may be vulnerable during the remainder of their stay at a health care facility.

Police apprehend driver allegedly responsible for collision

By and large, cities in Texas are very spread out. This means that many of us depend on cars as our chief form of transportation. It also means that we may spend a lot of time on the road while getting from here to there. And when we go out, we hope that those with whom we are sharing the road are careful and responsible drivers.

Oilfield workers must protect their hands from injury

An oilfield worker’s job depends on their ability to use their hands. Any sort of hand injury could result in a worker having to miss valuable time from the job. An extremely serious hand injury could permanently prevent an oilfield worker from being able to work at all. 

Journal reports that dog bites on the hand can cause big problems

We are all aware that a vicious bite from a dog can cause a serious injury. When a dog attacks, the victim can be left with deep puncture wounds and even tears in the flesh that obviously require treatment. But what can be less apparent is the damage done by a small bite on the hand.

It is not unusual for a dog to give a human a quick nip on the hand. Sometimes such a bite is done in the course of play and was not intended in an aggressive way. Therefore, it can be easy to overlook what may develop into a serious injury. The fact is that emergency departments see approximately 300,000 dog bite cases annually.

Which occupations produce the most fatalities in Texas?

Given that 2014 has only just ended, statistics for fatal occupational injuries for the year have not yet been released. However, statistics for the year 2013 were released in October of last year. In this post, we will look at some of the work-related fatality trends that took place in Texas between the years 2012 and 2013.

The information used for this post comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries and the U.S. Department of Labor.

Female pedestrian injured by hit-and-run driver

Common sense would dictate that a driver who strikes a pedestrian should stop and remain at the scene to help the injured party. But as hard as it may be to believe, there are people who will not take responsibility for their actions behind the wheel.

In El Paso, police are asking the public to help them track down a hit-and-run driver. The driver reportedly struck and seriously injured a female pedestrian. Witnesses say the vehicle in question was a dark brown or gray SUV.

According to investigators, the woman was crossing an intersection while walking her dog. She was struck and knocked to the ground by the vehicle. It is said that the car also ran over the woman's foot. Sadly, the dog was killed in the accident.

Drug companies must make testing a priority over marketing

At times, it can seem like we are awash in advertising for all manner of pills, creams, ointments and other assorted forms of medicine. The messages that take up so much time during commercial breaks on television and radio describe the amazing healing powers that these wonder drugs possess.

Given how expensive broadcast advertising time can be, it is safe to assume that sales of these products can prove quite lucrative for the companies that manufacture and distribute them. It would also appear that these companies have invested heavily in attempting to get their drugs into as many households as possible.

How should oil companies help prevent employee falls?

Oilfield work can offer good wages. Those who chose to make a career of helping extract crude from the ground can earn a healthy living. But, this type of work also has its hazards. For example, it is not unusual for workers to have to fulfill their tasks while on ladders, platforms or scaffoldings. A worker could easily suffer a catastrophic injury should they slip and fall from their elevated workstation.

So what kind of safeguards can be put in place to help keep workers from falling and being hurt?
