FOCUS ON HEALTH - The Food and Drug Administration has approved a new erectile dysfunction drug and makers say it may work faster than other similar drugs.
It's called Stendra, and it's the first erectile dysfunction drug to come out in almost 10 years.
Doctors say patients can get improved function within 15 minutes after taking Stendra.
The FDA says patients taking an erectile dysfunction drug should be aware of rare side effects like sudden loss of vision or hearing.
The FDA says an estimated 30 million men in the U.S. are affected by erectile dysfunction.
A new study shows teens who develop type two diabetes may have a harder time of managing it then adults.
Researchers tested several ways to manage blood sugar in teens newly–diagnosed with diabetes.
They found nearly half failed to maintain their insulin levels within a few years of diagnosis.
One in five suffered serious complications as a result.
The federally funded study is the largest to look at how to treat type 2 diabetes in teens.
Earlier studies have been mostly done on adults, since type 2 diabetes was rarely seen in young people before the obesity epidemic.
A third of American children and teens are either overweight or obese leaving them at a higher risk of developing the condition.
A new study suggests obese women may be discriminated against when applying for jobs and they may also receive lower starting salaries.
Researchers originally concealed the nature of the study from participants in order to avoid biased results.
The team found a strong discrimination against obese candidates across all job selection criteria.
