Recommendations to promote healthy longevity globally released

The National Academy of Medicine has released a 288-page report offering recommendations for an all-of-society approach to improve healthy longevity globally by 2050.
[Global Roadmap for Healthy Longevity
. National Academy of Medicine, 2022]

The recommendations address the needs of older people in the next five years and support actions in the areas of work, volunteering, and education; social infrastructure; physical environment; and public health, health systems, and long-term care. The report embraces a life-course approach to health, where health promotion and chronic-disease prevention starts in childhood. It characterizes integrated, person-centered primary care as the most appropriate care-delivery model to maximize health for people across the life course, especially older people with multiple chronic conditions. To shift health-care systems to focus on promoting healthy longevity, it includes these actions to be taken by 2027:

Health systems, in concert with communities and the people they serve, should adopt affordable, accessible, culturally appropriate models for providing person-centered, integrated care for older people facing functional limitations, multimorbidity, frailty, and complex care needs.
Governments should develop plans for aligning health-care payment and reimbursement systems with healthy longevity outcomes.
Relevant licensing and certification bodies should ensure all health-care providers receive training in how the physiology and psychology of aging affect the diagnosis and treatment of older patients.
Governments, professional societies, and health systems should provide incentives for developing and/or maintaining a geriatrics workforce to focus on older adults with multimorbidity, geriatric syndromes, and declining physical and cognitive functioning.

Theranos founder sentence

Elizabeth Holmes, who was convicted in January for defrauding investors about the blood testing offered by her startup company Theranos, has been sentenced to 11 years and three months in prison plus three years of supervision after she is released.

In addition, she was fined $400 ($100 for each of three counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit fraud).

Restitution will be set at a later date.

Holmes duped investors of hundreds of millions of dollars by claiming that Theranos had developed a revolutionary medical device that could detect a multitude of diseases and conditions from a few drops of blood. At its peak, Theranos’s stock was valued at $9 billion.

In July, the company’s former chief operating officer, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, was found guilty on 10 counts of federal wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. His sentencing is scheduled for December 7.

Companies warned for selling dietary supplements to treat cardiovascular disease

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warning letters to seven companies for illegally selling dietary supplements that claim to cure, treat, mitigate, or prevent cardiovascular disease or related conditions such as atherosclerosis, stroke, or heart failure, in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). The FDA is urging consumers to avoid these or similar products because they have not been evaluated by the FDA to be safe or effective for their intended use and may be harmful.

“Holistic” nurse practitioner charged with unprofessional conduct

California’s Board of Registered Nursing has charged Sarah Anne Erny, DNP (also known as Sarah Anne Cole) with unprofessional conduct, gross negligence, and misrepresenting herself as a medical doctor while doing business as Holistic Women’s Healing, a facility in Arroyo, California, where she worked as a nurse practitioner. According to the accusation document

From late 2018 through the first half of 2020, Erny saw about 24–30 patients per week, with approximately 70% receiving prescriptions for controlled substances. During this time, she wrote more than 1,600 prescriptions for Schedule III controlled substances, the majority of which were for testosterone (an anabolic steroid), for approximately 277 patients, including men being treated for hypogonadism or profound testosterone deficiency, as well as female patients being treated for peri- and post-menopausal issues. The majority of these prescriptions were for micronized testosterone powder, which would require compounding and assay for appropriate usage and dosage. The others were for testosterone oil, which would need to be administered by injection.

Patients receiving prescriptions for testosterone generally have complex medical issues that require careful laboratory monitoring and repeat physical examinations for proper diagnosis and treatment. Such patients are usually seen under the purview of physicians specializing in endocrinology or urology. Erny’s facility consisted of an office environment that lacked the medical equipment needed to appropriately assess and treat patients.

A review of Erny’s controlled substance prescribing patterns concluded that she was writing prescriptions for excessive amounts of testosterone, which was consistent with overprescribing.

Following a hearing, the Board of Nursing Registration will decide whether or not she should be disciplined.
In October 2022, the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney charged Erny with violating the California Business and Professions Code and filed a lawsuit
seeking an injunction and civil penalties. Shortly afterward, the case was settled
with a consent judgment
under which Erny agreed to pay civil penalties totaling $19,750  and to refrain from referring to herself as a doctor in advertising and in providing medical services to the public.

Erny now heads the functional integrated medicine program
at the Lapidus Clinic and Health Spa. Archived pages
of her Holistic Women’s Healing website state: “I have fallen head over heels in love with using herbs and essential oils for myself, my family and my patients.”

Her list of services also included ZYTO testing
, which has no valid medical use.
