Health Headlines: A Potentially Dangerous Supplement, Overscheduling Leads To Anxiety and How UTI’s Present in Seniors

On Twin Cities Live at Four, we go straight to the doctors at Fairview Health Services and North Memorial to dig into the latest Health Headlines.  Steve Patterson sits down with Dr. Katie Klingberg from Fairview to chat about a new health supplement that is making headlines.  It’s called higenamine.  But Dr. Klingberg suggests that some of its potential risks might outweigh its suggested benefits.  And, are you feeling stressed out?  It could be because you are overscheduling.  Dr. Klingberg digs into the article that has some folks suggesting you schedule less of your day in order to become more productive.  Plus, some important information for seniors and those who care for them.  Urinary tract infections could be the root cause of some behavioral changes in older adults.  She breaks down some of the symptoms to look out for and what to ask for at the doctor if you or someone you know is experiencing them.
