WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Heart failure patients who have healthy levels of gut bacteria have a reduced risk of death and are less likely to need a heart transplant.
That's according to a new Norwegian study where researchers found patients are getting the good gut bacteria by eating more high-fiber foods and less meat.
A University of Michigan study finds the third-leading reason for hospital readmission among older adults is a fall-related injury.
Researchers say hospitals need to teach fall prevention before discharging any patient over age 65.
