Avatar f tn High blood pressure is the most important modifiable risk factor of stroke. Given the disease burden of stroke, prevention is an important public health concern. Primary prevention is a lot less effective than secondary prevention (as judged by the number needed to treat to prevent one stroke per year).Recent guidelines detail the evidence for primary prevention in stroke.
Avatar m tn THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2011 Study Suggests Obesity Accelerates Progression of Cirrhosis Measures to Reduce BMI May Improve Outcome for Cirrhosis Patients Researchers from the United States and Europe involved in an NIH-funded multicenter study have determined that increased body mass index (BMI) is an independent predictor of clinical decompensation in patients with compensated cirrhosis, independent of portal pressure and liver function.
Avatar m tn What they found was that aspirin enhances the effects of omega, in that instead of 6 pills a day to get the required amount, you only need to take 3. In Europe there are new studies starting which will evaluate the effects of aspirin because this drug doesn't seem to be having the desired effect. What seems to be happening in reality is that more people are suffering heart attacks even though they are on aspirin.

Avatar m tn Low levels of vitamin D have also been linked to diabetes, multiple sclerosis, autism and schizophrenia. Cancer organization endorses the sun After decades of telling people to avoid sun exposure, one of Britain's leading cancer charities is getting ready to do a major about-face.
Avatar m tn Carbohydrates and Fat In the prescribed diets there should be no restriction on carbohydrate intake,[14] even in patients that suffer from diabetes mellitus or belong to the subgroup of patients with insulin resistance. This situation is not rare. In fact, 40–50% of all patients with ESLD suffer from insulin-resistant diabetes mellitus.
Avatar f tn being in US you also luck all type of monitoring to clear hbv or liver damage regression, that's hbsag quant and fibroscan, hopefully available by 1-2 years or as suggested before in the community ship samples to labs in europe or india (we posted an indian one, which is cheap and willing to help) interferon doesnt work because hbv is able to stop it so you have to weaken virus first and then kick it down by interferon combo.
Avatar f tn My grand mom had a thyroidectomy in the early 60s, we think it might have been due to Graves or toxic nodules. It did effect her heart and made her sick (but no eye problems) She died '81, and they just called it "struma" back then which included all the thyroid related problems (Europe) She also had RA. My mom (only child) has RA and gluten allergy. And my sister found out she has Graves in the beginning of this year and and just had a thyroideectomy almost 2 months ago.
1717054 tn?1316716253 In Europe they conducted trials with MT and it did not show any effect against HCV when taken orally so far. There is still a trial going on where they upped the dosage but so far that does not look very promising. Taken by IV (legalon-sil) on the other hand was very effective in reducing viral load at least temporarily. It acts like a natural PI.
Avatar f tn The obesity epidemic in the US is due solely to increased food intake May 14, 2009 Melbourne, Australia - The amount of food Americans eat has been increasing since the 1970s, and that alone is the cause of the obesity epidemic in the US today [1]. Physical activity—or the lack thereof—has played virtually no role in the rising number of expanding American waistlines, according to research presented at the 2009 European Congress on Obesity in Amsterdam last week.
Avatar m tn The current understanding of the serum 25(OH)D-disease outcome relations for cancers, cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, respiratory diseases, tuberculosis, diabetes mellitus, Alzheimer's disease, falls and fractures, meningitis, Parkinson's disease, maternal sepsis and hypertension, and multiple sclerosis was used in the calculations. Estimated reductions in mortality rates from increasing serum 25(OH)D from 20 ng/ml to over 40 ng/ml ranged from 7% for Africa to 17% for Europe.
910419 tn?1289487327 Under the law, insurers cannot set higher co-payments and deductibles or stricter limits on mental health benefits than they set for the treatment of physical illnesses like cancer and diabetes. For decades, such disparities have been common. Insurers and employers agree that the law prohibits them from setting numerical limits on hospital inpatient days and outpatient visits for mental health services if they do not impose such limits on other types of medical care.
408795 tn?1324939275 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 3.2 million people in the United States have chronic hepatitis C, a viral disease that causes inflammation of the liver that can lead to diminished liver function or liver failure. Most people with hepatitis have no symptoms of the disease until liver damage occurs, which may take several years. Most liver transplants performed in the United States are due to progressive liver disease caused by hepatitis C virus infection.
Avatar f tn They have also been shown to help speed the recovery or even the prevention of pneumonia. Again, there is still much to be learned. The OP's situation is indeed very alarming, however I don't read anything that says the Zocor was responsible, just conjecture that it may be based on some Internet research. Zocor which is merely simvastatin is very safe and the incidence of side effects very low, but some will be affected differently than others.

634733 tn?1316629592 “Teaching and practicing obesity prevention from the start - but especially during teenage years - may be an important step in reducing the risk of MS later in life for women,” Munger told the BBC. Susan Kohlhaas, research communications officer for the MS Society, however, told the BBC that the results are not wholly conclusive. “This study does not account for several other factors that may play a role in causing MS. Based on that, more work is needed,” she told the BBC.
233488 tn?1310696703 Running marathons for decades is an excessive amount of exercise, predisposing to an increased coronary artery plaque buildup despite favorably altering many risk factors such as weight, blood pressure and risk of diabetes. A more moderate dose of exercise is a better strategy for promoting long-term cardiovascular health and durability. An example of a sensible and time efficient ‘exercise prescription’ is shown in figure 1.
1191262 tn?1366766621 i think that if one can afford heptech with no trobles due to the cost it is always good for all general health and to prevent both cancer and liver fibrosis, the single research on cucurmin tumerics and reservatrol is increadible as prevention of al todays diseases correlated to older age i am giving fibrogurad to my father with great improvment, he had a stroke year ago with no detactable damage because took the pill within 5-10min from it but now about 3-5years after he was having a decline
Avatar f tn I feel badly that they stopped making the Lyme vaccine and so many people are suffering with it. However, I do see that most people with type II diabetes are weight/diet related. I stand by my comment that many research/pharma vaccination production labs have gone out of business and/or stopped making vaccine due to lack of funding.
Avatar m tn In an accompanying editorial, Jason Block, MD, assistant professor at Obesity Prevention Program, Department of Population Medicine, Harvard Medical School/Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute, Boston, Massachusetts, said the UK researchers' work shows that a 20% tax on sugary drinks can work to curb obesity. He urges policymakers in other countries to implement the high tax as well. In the United States, some attempts to do so have already been shot down.
Avatar m tn I may have some good layman's knowledge about some blood test results, possible indications, but cannot diagnose, provide medical advice and might have it wrong. Never assume anything I say and always ask your doctor about any concerns. Raw Blood test results can be scary especially if you know little about them. Some results can be in the abnormal range.
Avatar n tn sorry but this is BS.. "It is almost unheard of to find a 100% hetero guy who has only had sex with women, never been in jail, and never used iv drugs who has HIV." It may be rare in the US and Europe but it does happen. A lot of men contract the virus abroad via heterosexual sex.
Avatar m tn Barber's interest in the topic arose when he encountered a 30-something stroke patient who had none of the typical risk factors associated with stroke such as hypertension or diabetes -- but the patient smoked pot. He and his colleagues then searched the literature and found similar case reports associating marijuana smoking with stroke in younger adults who did not have typical risk factors.
Avatar m tn Fiber - almonds are a good source of dietary fiber - the part of the plant foods that is not digested in the human body. Fiber appears to play a protective role against heart disease and diabetes, an d aids in the prevention of constipation, diverticulosis, and some forms of cancer, such as colon and rectal. Iron - An ounce of almonds contains 6% of the recommended daily requirements of iron. This essential mineral helps carry oxygen to all of the body's cells and organs.
931217 tn?1283484935 In the United States, the uterus is typically removed along with the ovaries in females, and virtually all dogs and cats are spayed or castrated. In Europe and some other parts of the world neutering is far less common, and when females are spayed only the ovaries are usually removed. The primary purpose of neutering is to prevent reproduction, but like most medical interventions the procedure has a variety of other effects, both beneficial and undesirable.
26471 tn?1211940121 DeFronzo, professor and chief of diabetes at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, said. He designed and led the four-year ACTos NOW for the Prevention of Diabetes (ACT NOW) Study that enrolled 602 individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, a prediabetic state, along with 102 healthy controls. Currently no drug is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of prediabetes to prevent progression to diabetes.
Avatar f tn Optimal calcium absorption occurs with a vitamin D level greater than 79.8 nmol/L (32 ng/mL). Optimal disease prevention (vitamin D deficiency is highly linked to numerous diseases including cancer) at a minimum of 125 nmol/L (50 ng/mL). Vitamin B12 serum range is too low and symptoms are well noted to occur in "normal" range. In Japan and various countries in Europe, the lower limit for B12 is between 500-550 pg/mL (369 - 405.9 pmol/L). I'd go higher than that!
475555 tn?1469307939 NVHR also benefits indirectly, but openly, from a small amount of funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The reality is, we would love not to need their money and support, but here are many reasons why we must turn to pharmaceutical companies to keep on doing our work.
Avatar f tn This phenomenon is more common in Southern Africa (where about 40% have minimal liver damage) than in Asia,America and Europe (where more than 90% are associated with cirrhosis). " Many causes have been suggested: a) integration of part of the hbv genome into the liver cell genome; b) HBV X protein promotes development of HCC 2. I believe antiviral treatment is appropriate. This is, I believe, to ensure virus replication is reduced, therefore no progression of fibrosis/cirrhosis.
