Study finds AMD being misdiagnosed

Up to 25 percent of age-related macular degeneration cases may have been missed by eye care professionals according to a study published in JAMA Ophthalmology. This condition largely impacts Kentucky residents and other Americans who are age 50 and older. Those who have it could lose their vision permanently. To obtain the data for the survey, researchers from the University of Alabama took a second look at 664 patients who had an average age of 69.

Seatbelts may reduce risk of severe liver damage in car accidents

Kentucky drivers or passengers who get in car accidents are at risk of suffering serious injuries that could include a severe liver injury. However, researchers found that people who wore a seat belt were less likely to sustain severe liver injuries.

Exagen promotes lupus awareness month by offering AVISE test

Every year, May is Lupus Awareness Month across Kentucky and the rest of the country. Despite the severity of the disease, recent polling shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans are not familiar with the disease. This is unusual given 5 million people have lupus worldwide.

Was my infection the result of medical malpractice?

If you recently spent time in a Kentucky hospital, you probably expected to come home from your stay in better health than before your admission. Sure, you may have had some surgical pain or lifestyle variations to deal with, but your expectation of recovery was high, and you hoped to be back on your feet in time. What you did not expect was to feel your health decline rapidly as infection spread through your body.

Coalition aims to save lives on the road

For many drivers in Kentucky, the dangers presented by car and truck accidents are a real daily threat. In fact, over 100 people are killed each day on American roadways while many more are seriously injured. In 2016, 37,461 people lost their lives in traffic accidents. This represented an increase of 5.6 percent over the previous year and a reversal of a prior trend showing a decrease in deaths. A group called the Road to Zero Coalition is working to advocate for increased traffic safety and the elimination of deaths on America's roadways

Causes of underride accidents

Encountering a truck on the highway is seldom a positive experience. The sheer size and speed at which they often travel can have your mind asking scary "what-if" questions. No matter if you are traveling at night or in daylight, the presence of tractor-trailers on a Kentucky highway increases the level of danger for other travelers.
