The recipient of America's Top Physicians Award for five consecutive years, Dr. Albert Lee has been treating patients as president of Indiana Neurology Specialty Care for more than two decades. As a board-certified neurologist, Dr. Albert Lee specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as headaches, sleep and movement disorders, and multiple sclerosis
Here is a brief overview of a few ways to manage multiple sclerosis.
Eat a balanced diet - Eating a balanced diet promotes a healthy weight, healthy immune system, and better bone health, all of which can help to reduce the risk of developing multiple sclerosis.
Exercise regularly - Regular physical activity such as swimming or walking benefits individuals who experience mild to moderate symptoms of multiple sclerosis by improving balance, coordination, muscle tone, and strength. Regular exercise also helps to reduce fatigue and stress.
Keep the body temperature cool - Keeping one’s body temperature cool can help to alleviate the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. This can be done by drinking cold beverages and remaining in air-conditioned rooms.
Dr. Albert Lee is the president of Indiana Neurology Specialty Care, a healthcare facility based in Lafayette, Indiana. Serving as business owner, physician, and neurologist, he oversees the day-to-day operations of the practice and handles a full patient caseload. Educated at Queen's University in Belfast, Dr. Albert Lee has received an America's Top Physicians award every year since 2006.
A recent study conducted by University of Toronto found that adult men are three times as likely to suffer a stroke if their parents divorced before they, the adult men referenced in the study, turned 18 years old. The study's co-author, Angela Dalton, said the researchers eliminated patients from the study who had experienced family violence or had parents addicted to drugs or alcohol. They also adapted the study to account for factors such as education, income, health care coverage, and behaviors including exercise and smoking.
Scientists are still investigating to discover a reason for the findings, though they do point to an increase in hormones caused by stress as a likely candidate. Citing a process called biological imbedding, the scientists went on to say that the stress of their parents' divorce might have caused the men pinpointed in the study to handle stress differently for the rest of their lives. They recommended exercise of varying intensity such as swimming, jogging, and tennis to decrease the risk of stroke.
According to a study done in April 2013 by a McGill University doctor in Montreal, REM sleep behavior disorder may be one of the earliest indicators of Parkinson's disease
or dementia. Neurologist Dr. Albert Lee, whose office is located in Lafayette, Indiana, focuses primarily in headaches, multiple sclerosis, and sleep and movement disorders.
Dr. Ronald Postuma who works at McGill University presented his research to the American Academy of Neurology based upon his findings at the Mayo Clinic based in Minnesota. His research found that of the 172 patients who had REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) diagnosed before their death, 160 had synucleinopathies, which are a subgroup of neurological diseases that contain Lewy bodies. These Lewy bodies may cause dementia or Parkinson's. The findings confirm there is a risk that patients with RBD may develop neurodegenerative disease.
The president of Indiana Neurology Specialty Care, Dr. Albert Lee possesses professional membership in the British Medical Association, the American Academy of Neurology, and the Association of British Neurologists. The board-certified Dr. Lee contributes articles to several publications, including a piece he coauthored on microsurgery pertaining to posterior circulation aneurisms.
Dr. Albert Lee
is President of Indiana Neurology Specialty Care, a practice specializing in the treatment of headaches, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, and sleep disorders. Here Dr. Lee shares important information about the causes and treatments for headaches.
There are several types of common headache. Tension headaches
are caused by tight muscles in the shoulders, neck, jaw, and scalp. Often related to stress, anxiety, or an injury, they tend to be felt on both sides of the head. Migraine headaches are more severe, and they usually involve other symptoms such as blurred vision or nausea. A migraine generally begins as a dull ache and develops into a throbbing, pulsating, or pounding pain at the temple. Believed to be caused by chemical reactions in the brain, migraines can usually be treated by certain relaxation techniques, as well as over-the-counter and prescription medications.
At the first sign of a headache, Dr. Lee advises drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. Resting in a dark, quiet room can alleviate migraine symptoms, and deep breathing and relaxation techniques can also temper pain associated with headaches. Headaches are rarely associated with more serious conditions, but you should contact a doctor if the headache severely interferes with daily activities, gets worse over 24 hours, or is accompanied by slurred speech, a change in vision, nausea, or vomiting.
