Hey there! I’ve got some exciting news to share with you today. The FDA has authorized the first over-the-counter continuous glucose monitor in the U.S., which is a game-changer for people with type 2 diabetes and those looking to monitor their blood sugar levels. There’s also some interesting research on the gut-brain axis, showing how probiotics may help boost mood and cognitive function. And let’s not forget about the new virtual reality meditation app from Headspace, which is a great way to promote well-being.

In other news, there’s a fascinating debate about reversing aging in dogs, and a call to reframe our thinking on menopause as researchers advocate for a better understanding and non-medical ways to address it. Plus, there’s an update on the impact of the early 2020 gaps in medical care on high-risk GI cancer detection and survival.

On the business side, we’re seeing a surge in Medicare Advantage enrollment, with for-profit insurers leading the way. And there’s also some interesting insight into the changing fitness trends, with a shift towards weight training over cardio equipment.

Overall, it’s an exciting time in the world of healthcare and wellness, with new innovations, research, and trends shaping the way we approach health. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for improving our well-being and quality of life.
