Vitamin dificiencies and neural tube defects. (1/100)

Serum folate, red cell folate, white blood cell vitamin C, riboflavin saturation index, and serum vitamin A were determined during the first trimester of pregnancy in over 900 cases. For each of these there was a social classes I + II showed the highest levels which differed significantly from other classes, except for serum folate. In 6 mothers who gave birth to infants with neural tube defects, first trimester serum folate, red cell folate, white blood cell vitamin C, and riboflavin values were lower than in controls. In spite of small numbers the differences were significant for red cell folate (P less than 0-001) and white blood cell vitamin C (P less than 0-05). These findings are compatible with the hypothesis that nutritional deficiencies are significant in the causation of congenital defects of the neural tube in man.  (+info)

Functional biochemical and nutrient indices in frail elderly people are partly affected by dietary supplements but not by exercise. (2/100)

A decline in dietary intake due to inactivity and, consequently, development of a suboptimal nutritional status is a major problem in frail elderly people. However, benefits of micronutrient supplementation, all-round physical exercise or a combination of both on functional biochemical and hematologic indicators of nutritional and health status in frail elderly subjects have not been tested thoroughly. A 17-wk randomized controlled trial was performed in 145 free-living frail elderly people (43 men, 102 women, mean age, 78 +/- 5.7 y). Based on a 2 x 2 factorial design, subjects were assigned to one of the following: 1) nutrient-dense foods, 2) exercise, 3) both (1) and (2) or 4) a control group. Foods were enriched with micronutrients, frequently characterized as deficient [25-100% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA)] in elderly people. Exercises focused on skill training, including strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility. Dietary intake, blood vitamin levels and nutritional and health indicators, including (pre)albumin, ferritin, transferrin, C-reactive protein, hemoglobin and lymphocytes were measured. At baseline, 28% of the total population had an energy intake below 6.3 MJ, up to a maximum of 93% having vitamin intakes below two thirds of the Dutch RDA. Individual deficiencies in blood at baseline ranged from 3% for erythrocyte glutathione reductase-alpha to 39% for 25-hydroxy vitamin D and 42% for vitamin B-12. These were corrected after 17 wk in the two groups receiving the nutrient-dense foods, whereas no significant changes were observed in the control or exercise group. Biochemical and hematologic indicators at baseline were within the reference ranges (mean albumin, 46 g/L; prealbumin, 0.25 g/L; hemoglobin, 8.6 mmol/L) and were not affected by any of the interventions. The long-term protective effects of nutrient supplementation and exercise, by maintaining optimal nutrient levels and thereby reducing the initial chance of developing critical biochemical values, require further investigation. Other indicative functional variables for suboptimal nutritional status, in addition to those currently selected, should also be explored.  (+info)

The pattern of severe protein-calorie malnutrition in Sudanese children attending a large hospital in The Sudan. (3/100)

One hundred fifty patients suffering from severe protein-calorie malnutrition, admitted in 1 month to the Pediatric wards of Wad Medani Hospital, Sudan, were classified according to the Wellcome classification. Marasmus was the prevailing type. It was common in the 2nd year of life, while kwashiorkor occurred mainly under the age of 12 months. Anthropometric measurements showed that kwashiorkor was an acute disease while marasmus and marasmic kwashiorkor were more chronic. The triceps skinfold was unexpectedly low in kwashiorkor. Of the simple measurements and ratios used for assessing the nutritional status, the head/chest ratio applied ot children over 1 year was not found to be reliable and the weight for head circumference correlated poorly with deficits in other variables. Non of the major clinical features was found to be pathognomonic of any type of severe protein-calorie malnutrition. Megaloblastic anemia was common.  (+info)

Nutrients and HIV: part two--vitamins A and E, zinc, B-vitamins, and magnesium. (4/100)

There is compelling evidence that micronutrient deficiencies can profoundly affect immunity; micronutrient deficiencies are widely seen in HIV, even in asymptomatic patients. Direct relationships have been found between deficiencies of specific nutrients, such as vitamins A and B12, and a decline in CD4 counts. Deficiencies appear to influence vertical transmission (vitamin A) and may affect progression to AIDS (vitamin A, B12, zinc). Correction of deficiencies has been shown to affect symptoms and disease manifestation (AIDS dementia complex and B12; diarrhea, weight loss, and zinc), and certain micronutrients have demonstrated a direct anti-viral effect in vitro (vitamin E and zinc). The previous article in this series focused on selenium and beta carotene deficiencies in HIV/AIDS. This literature review elucidates how deficiencies of the micronutrients zinc, magnesium, vitamins A, E, and specific B vitamins relate to HIV symptomology and progression, and clearly illustrates the need for nutritional supplementation in HIV disease.  (+info)

Diagnosis and detection of vitamin deficiencies. (5/100)

Vitamin deficiencies can be detected in several ways, none of which is entirely unambiguous. Evidence of several types is, therefore, required. For instance, it is rare for clinical signs to result from a single cause, except in controlled experiments. Natural diets are rarely deficient in only a single nutrient, and individual requirements vary considerably. Biochemical and functional status indices can help bridge the gap between inadequate diet and resulting pathology. Some indices are very specific for individual vitamins; others, although only semi-specific, are useful if closely linked to tissue malfunction and hence to pathology. Ideally, biochemical indices should separate severe deficiency, mild subclinical deficiency, normal status and overload toxicity. Vitamin concentrations in plasma, serum, red cells, urine, and other accessible tissues have been used, and metabolic products of vitamin-dependent metabolic pathways have been exploited. However, many of the assays are difficult to perform and interpret, and are limited to few laboratories, world-wide. There is a need for simpler and more 'portable' tests, for routine laboratories and for the medical profession.  (+info)

Micronutrient supplementation and immune function in the elderly. (6/100)

Immunologic function, particularly cell-mediated immunity, declines with age, contributing to the increased incidence of infectious diseases in the elderly. Nutrition may play a pivotal role in maintaining immune competence in older adults. Most studies to date have focused on micronutrient deficiencies and supplementation, sometimes using "mega-dose" formulations. Multivitamin/mineral supplements or specific micronutrients such as zinc and vitamin E may be of value; however, data suggest there is likely a therapeutic range for many micronutrients, and oversupplementation may be harmful. Specific alterations of dietary lipids may also be useful for modulating immune responses in the elderly. This review summarizes the prevalence of vitamin and mineral deficiencies in older adults and highlights the outcomes of trials of micronutrient supplementation to augment immune function in the elderly.  (+info)

Nutritional modulation of malaria morbidity and mortality. (7/100)

This review critically examines the relationship between nutritional status and malaria. The data indicate that protein-energy malnutrition is associated with greater malaria morbidity and mortality in humans. In addition, controlled trials of either vitamin A or zinc supplementation show that these nutrients can substantially reduce clinical malaria attacks. Data for iron indicate that supplementation may minimally aggravate certain malariometric indices in some settings and also strongly improve hematologic status. Withholding of iron supplements from deficient population is, therefore, not currently indicated. Available evidence for other nutrients describe varied effects, with some deficiencies being exacerbative (e.g., thiamine), protective (e.g., vitamin E), or both exacerbative and protective in different settings (e.g., riboflavin, vitamin C). The roles of folate, other B vitamins, unsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, and selenium are also examined. Study of the interactions between nutrition and malaria may provide insight to protective mechanisms and result in nutrient-based interventions as low-cost and effective adjuncts to current methods of malaria prevention and treatment.  (+info)

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children: rationale for its integrative management. (8/100)

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common behavioral disorder in children. ADHD is characterized by attention deficit, impulsivity, and sometimes overactivity ("hyperactivity"). The diagnosis is empirical, with no objective confirmation available to date from laboratory measures. ADHD begins in childhood and often persists into adulthood. The exact etiology is unknown; genetics plays a role, but major etiologic contributors also include adverse responses to food additives, intolerances to foods, sensitivities to environmental chemicals, molds, and fungi, and exposures to neurodevelopmental toxins such as heavy metals and organohalide pollutants. Thyroid hypofunction may be a common denominator linking toxic insults with ADHD symptomatologies. Abnormalities in the frontostriatal brain circuitry and possible hypofunctioning of dopaminergic pathways are apparent in ADHD, and are consistent with the benefits obtained in some instances by the use of methylphenidate (Ritalin) and other potent psychostimulants. Mounting controversy over the widespread use of methylphenidate and possible life-threatening effects from its long-term use make it imperative that alternative modalities be implemented for ADHD management. Nutrient deficiencies are common in ADHD; supplementation with minerals, the B vitamins (added in singly), omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, flavonoids, and the essential phospholipid phosphatidylserine (PS) can ameliorate ADHD symptoms. When individually managed with supplementation, dietary modification, detoxification, correction of intestinal dysbiosis, and other features of a wholistic/integrative program of management, the ADHD subject can lead a normal and productive life.  (+info)

We all know that carbs are addictive, because when you eat things like pizza or a brownie, your blood sugar rapidly rises. You get a temporary "high" when your blood sugar is high.. Three ounces of sugar in any form (for example a can of Coke or bowl of sugary cereal) suppress the activity of white blood cells for up to 5 hours.. This is followed by a blast of insulin from your pancreas causing a rapid drop in blood sugar. You feel fatigue and anxiety . In order to feel good again, you want to "self medicate" by eating another hit of carbs.. Carbs also cause nutrient deficiencies. Carbs require B complex vitamins for their utilization in the body. Unfortunately, it is the B vitamins that are removed during the processing of grains. Because refined grains are low in B vitamins and yet require high B vitamins for their utilization, they lead to B complex vitamin deficiencies. Problems associated with B vitamin deficiencies include depression, insomnia, fatigue, and GI symptoms to name just a few. ...
Consider vitamin D, which promotes calcium absorption, helps protect older adults from osteoporosis and has a role in cell growth and immune function. Vitamin D deficiency is related to depression, Alzheimers disease and increased risk of certain cancers, including breast, colon and prostate cancer. According to the National Institutes of Health, the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin D for people between the ages of 51 and 70 is 600 IU (International Units). Senior citizens specifically require a crystalline form of B12, Marishak-Simon said, which is found in fortified cereals and is more easily absorbed than the B12 found in meat. Dr. Nasiya Ahmed, a gerontology physician with UT Physicians in Bellaire and the Texas Medical Center, said lack of appetite can quickly lead to lack of nutrients and weight loss.

Adequate vitamin B12 is very important in maintaining good health. Also called cobalamin, B12 contains the essential mineral cobalt. B12 is a very complex molecule and also contains carbon, oxygen, phosphorus, and nitrogen. Your body uses B12 for the metabolism of nerve tissue and to maintain the nervous system as a whole. B12 is also used in the formation of normal red blood cells. Its often referred to as the "energy" vitamin as it can increase your energy levels. B12 injections are often used in the treatment of fatigue in older adults. As for folate, it also aids in red blood cell production and helps with the utilization and breakdown of proteins. Folic acid helps to build RNA and DNA and so has a fundamental role in the growth and reproduction of all cells ...

Flu season has started. Better start popping multivitamins, right?. Well, not quite.. Multivitamins have been a surprisingly controversial topic in the past few years. Traditionally, multivitamins have been considered the best source for getting our daily dose of vitamins. But, it turns out you can have too much of a good thing. Overdosing on multivitamins may be toxic in extreme amounts, but can also cause unfortunate, though less drastic, side effects with slightly increased doses. Studies have shown that men and women who took multivitamins and other supplements were at a slightly greater risk for breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer. Other potential side effects of multivitamins include headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, and abnormal taste in the mouth. However, the Harvard School of Public Health argues that many of the studies may have been skewed by underlying illnesses and diseases of the patients in the study.. ...

The article, The Malnutrition of Obestity: Micronutrient Deficiencies That Promote Diabetes, describes vitamin deficiencies that exacerbate diabetes. "As with nearly all biochemical processes, glucose metabolism and insulin signaling require cofactors and vitamins that are essential in the diet. Deficiencies in any of these micronutrients have potential to impair glucose metabolism and cause insulin resistance. Clinical evidence supporting this hypothesis regarding the metabolic effects of specific deficiencies including vitamin D, chromium, biotin, thiamine and vitamin C is mounting. Unlike vitamin E, which has little to no proven clinical effect when given as a supplement, these vitamins are known to be deficient at relatively high rates in obese individuals and in diabetic patients. Clinicians should consider addressing possible deficiencies of these micronutrients when advising obese patients who are at risk for the development of type 2 diabetes. The medical care plan for obesity should ...

The mounting evidence linking B vitamin deficiencies with depression clearly reinforces Dr. Raths finding that the primary cause of todays most common chronic diseases is a long-term deficiency of vitamins and other specific nutrients. Just as with physical diseases, therefore, the trillion-dollar-a-year pharma industry will inevitably see natural approaches to improving mental health disorders as a threat to the patented chemical drugs that it markets for such conditions.. Drugs for mental health raked in almost 35 billion dollars for the pharma industry in 2015. This made them its eighth-highest grossing global therapy category that year. To put this eye-watering figure into context, World Bank figures show that around half of the worlds countries had a GDP of less than 35 billion dollars in 2016.. As public awareness grows regarding natural therapies for controlling depression, stakeholders of the pharma industry will likely attempt to organize global PR campaigns with the goal of ...
Vitamins are amino acid compounds that are needed by our body but can not be produced by the body itself, hence it should come from outside through our daily food intake. The nature gives us the luxury by providing various food sources that contains all the vitamins that we need. In many circumstances, it is lack of our knowledge that results to various kinds of illness and disturbances due to vitamin deficiencies. Now, vitamin becomes essential in particular conditions which include the conditioning of getting pregnant and the pregnancy itself. Its essentiality lies in its role to support normal growth and development of a human being. Starting from the very beginning at the conception where the development occurs by absorbing the essential nutrients. The growing fetus needs certain vitamins and minerals to develop body parts and system such as the skin, bone as well as the muscles.. If serious deficiency happens in one or several vitamins and nutrients, the presence of a deficiency disease ...
Finding the cause of your breathing problem may help determine vitamin deficiencies and lead to the right vitamins t you need to add to your diet. As an example, when you are deficient in vitamin C, you are more prone to irregular breathing problems linked to asthma.

Deficiencies in vitamins A, B, D, C and E can all cause breathing problems that are linked to COPD, asthma and chronic bronchitis. ...
NEW YORK, USA, 12 May 2009 - UNICEF is one of a wide range of development partners in the UN, academic, non-governmental and private sectors that today called on the worlds governments to invest more in life-saving vitamins and minerals to prevent illness, blindness and mental disorders that result from vitamin deficiencies.
I was not expecting my recent reading of an article on femtosecond reaction kinetics to produce another discussion of quorum sensing, biofilms and vitamins. The idea behind the article was to identify new targets for drug design based on the ephemeral transition states that occur as enzymes bind substrates, stabilize transition states and yield product molecules. Drugs that mimic the transition states make good enzyme inhibitors. One of the target enzymes for the control of disease is an enzyme, MTAN, involved in the synthesis of quorum sensing molecules that orchestrate the construction of common biofilms. The idea is to inhibit MTAN and also avoid selection for antibiotic resistance. Unfortunately, targeting quorum sensing molecules also may produce vitamin deficiencies, since many of these molecules, in this case vitamin K, are also quorum sensing molecules ...

Ah yes, then came Golden rice. In my third year of university, I sat in my plant physiology class hearing about golden rice for the first time. I was in complete awe, and in that moment I decided I wanted to be involved in biotechnology in one way or another. Golden rice was modified to produce beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. The idea was to prevent vit A deficiency, which is caused by malnutrition, and kills almost 700 000 children under the age of 5 annually. Naysayers argued and argued against golden rice, first saying there wasnt enough vitamin A being produced, so scientists went in and made new strains producing even more beta-carotene. Then came the arguments that the use of golden rice would create a slippery slope for more widespread GMO use. Because thats the real concern, forget the millions of people who are affected by vitamin deficiencies. Golden rice is still being argued over, but has generally been shown to have sufficient levels of beta-carotene, and that the levels ...
From the standpoint of bodily health, alcohol can have deleterious effects on the body. Fatty liver, fibrosis, cirrhosis (irreversible liver damage) and gout are common side effects of chronic binge drinking. Alcohol over stimulates cells in the lining of the stomach that produce acid. Increases in acid production are associated with heartburn and ulcer development. Intestinal cells fail to absorb micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), which can lead to electrolyte imbalances and vitamin deficiencies. Alcohol consumption impairs the body s mechanisms that control blood glucose and may result in hypoglycemia. This may cause serious injury even if it doesn t last long because it causes the brain and other body tissues to be deprived of glucose needed for energy and normal function. Hypoglycemia is a common cause of low energy on the field and in the classroom ...

Support your vision. Nutritional supplements bridge the gap between adequate and optimal nutrition. And this is what really makes a difference. Today, we re living longer, and we all want to be active and healthy into our 70s, 80s, and even 90s. Receiving the right amount of nutrients from food sources and nutritional supplements can help everyone achieve this goal. RDA versus Optimal Nutrition. The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) were first established in 1941 by the Food and Nutrition Board (FNB), and have only been updated a few times in the last 60 years. At the time, the board looked at large populations to determine how to prevent diseases due to gross vitamin deficiencies. Based on their studies, the FNB set the RDA for vitamin C at 60 mg the amount needed every day to prevent scurvy; and determined the RDA for vitamin D to be 400 IUs (international units) the amount required to prevent rickets. While it seems obvious that those levels are antiquated by today s standards, many still ...
battling diarrhea daily, seek help.. ● Bloating: Bloating is another common symptom. Do not take this as a definitive symptom. Gluten can cause bloating in healthy people as well.. ● Gas: Again, this is another common symptom. With celiac disease, the body cannot process gluten. As it moves through the digestive tract, it starts to ferment. That, in turn, produces gas.. ● Fatigue: Because your body is unable to digest a large portion of the food you are eating, you are bound to feel fatigued. Your body needs to digest the food so it can absorb the right vitamins and minerals and produce energy.. ● Weight Loss: By this we mean a sudden drop in weight when you have done nothing to cause it. If that is coupled with the inability to gain weight, see a doctor. That is a sign that something is wrong. It could be celiac disease or even diabetes.. ● Anemia: Celiac disease interferes with the bodys ability to absorb nutrients, resulting in vitamin deficiencies, particularly iron deficiencies. ...

Alcohol use disorders can sometimes result in alcohol-related neuropathy / polyneuropathy, the simultaneous malfunction of multiple peripheral nerves, leading to pain and motor weakness. This is caused by a toxic effect from the alcohol on the nerves. Habitual heavy use of alcohol is also associated with poor nutrition, resulting in severe vitamin deficiencies that can contribute to peripheral neuropathies. For example, thiamine (vitamin B11) deficiency can cause widespread damage to nerve tissue.
There are hundreds (if not thousands!) of reasons why your healthcare provider might order blood tests for you. Abnormal hormone levels, vitamin deficiencies, diseases, and more can be diagnosed by examining different chemicals and molecules within the blood. Lets take a look at some of the more commonly ordered blood tests.. Complete Blood Count (CBC). This is the go-to test to analyze the three main types of cells within the blood: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.. Red blood cells contain a molecule called hemoglobin that carries oxygen from the lungs to the bodys tissues. A CBC shows the number of red blood cells, their size and shape, and the concentration of hemoglobin within each cell. Red blood cells can be low if a person has been losing blood or if they have anemia (low hemoglobin levels). If you are diagnosed with anemia, your doctor will then order more specific tests to determine if your anemia is the result of recent blood loss, low iron levels, or a vitamin B12 ...

Dementia is an overall term for symptoms related to a decline in mental ability which interfere with ones everyday life. These symptoms are problems with memory, thinking and language, resulting in mood and behavior changes. The most common cause of the set of symptoms known as dementia is Alzheimers disease.. Other causes include thyroid gland problems, vascular changes, depression, head trauma, Parkinsons disease, vitamin deficiency, medications, and chronic infections.. If the culprit in dementia is not treatable, more brain cells will be damaged. This will lead to gradual worsening of the symptoms. But, if the cause is treatable such as in the case of thyroid problems, medications, and vitamin deficiencies, dementia is reversible.. Thats why you have to visit a doctor to determine the culprit in dementia if you notice some of the warning signs.. Besides genetic predisposition, other risk factors for dementia include psychological, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Luckily, theres ...
Area medical experts tell HealthyLife they wish more women would alter their lifestyles and consult their physicians before becoming pregnant. Optimally, women who are planning to have a family should consult with their physician about a year before conception. Doing so allows for health and lifestyle issues -- weight, nutrition and bad habits such as alcohol consumption and smoking -- to be identified and gives the patient time to work with her doctor to correct them. Definitely it cannot separated -- fertility with a healthy lifestyle, says Monica Moore, a nurse practitioner with Reproductive Medical Associates of Connecticut, which also has offices in New York. While exercising, you should be able to talk, not sing. Another advantage to seeking medical advice a year before starting a family is for pre-conception testing, which allows OB/GYNs to identify genetic issues such as cystic fibrosis and sickle cell disease, establish a blood count, discover vitamin deficiencies, diabetes and sexually

Talk with your healthcare provider about your calcium needs if you have any thyroid or kidney problems, or if you have hormone or vitamin deficiencies. Be especially careful when choosing an MCHC product. It is important to realize that supplements that claim to contain MCHC may vary widely in purity, form, and effectiveness. The sources of bone extract as well as the processing procedures are of utmost importance in determining the quality of MCHC. Some sources of MCHC may contain high levels of lead and other contaminants, or be tainted with cartilage and tendons. Certain processing procedures, such as high-heat and excessive grinding, can result in a product that is nothing more than bone meal. These products lack the full complement of minerals, organicfactors, and the microcrystalline structures that are characteristic of true MCHC. Possible Interactions ...
Causes - The exact cause is unknown and can vary from person to person. In addition to genetics, some possible triggers include stress, hormones, fatigue, hypersensitivity, tissue injury, infection, certain foods and vitamin deficiencies. Certain foods, such as citrus or acidic fruits, can cause a canker sore or make one worse. In addition, they can arise because of irritation from braces or poorly fitting dentures. In some cases, canker sores are caused by an impaired immune system or gastrointestinal disease such as celiac or Crohns disease ...
Dental check-ups are crucial to identify risks and help prevent more serious problems from occurring such as tooth decay and gum disease. Dentists can even identify early signs of other diseases like diabetes and vitamin deficiencies. However, without regular dental screenings and prevention measures like sealants on molars, dental disease often goes untreated and can result in cavities, pain and infection. Untreated dental disease can also interfere with learning, speech, and eating, leading to poor nutrition and problems in school ...

When I saw her in person in January she said that the things I have going on are what she sees in her practice all the time and is pretty typical of the kind of patients she gets. So I asked her if those patients are able to regain full health, how long the initial die off lasts (I had heard Dr. K say the first two months are rough), and how long it takes to have a normal life again (think feeling good, energy to have fun and work out, ability to work full time, ability to think clearly, etc.). Her answer was very encouraging yet also utterly depressing. She said because I have Kryptopyrroluria (KPU) the initial die off and detox will take anywhere from 6 to 12 months and then it will be like a big cloud has been lifted. People with KPU start detoxing metals when the mineral and vitamin deficiencies are replaced which causes a lot of highs and lows and takes quite some time. ...

Eco-Warriors put people out of agricultural business and ironically force food production into areas where they arent so fussy about animal cruelty. I will cite a particular poultry farming friend who was having trouble with his contracted feed supplier bringing him poor quality feed. The nature of his contract meant he couldnt source another feed supplier that year. Said poor quality feed resulted in vitamin deficiencies in his birds which resulted in brittle leg bones. A bunch of these soi-disant Eco-warriors heard that he was having trouble of this nature, did their customary hundred metres conclusion jump, and besieged his premises making accusations of animal cruelty. On several occasions said eco-wariors let his stock out, where the local foxes and ...

If you have concerns about memory or other behavioral changes, either in yourself or a loved one, it is important to consult a physician. Many of the symptoms of Alzheimers are similar to other conditions that are treatable such as depression, drug interactions, or vitamin deficiencies. There are also other types of brain disorders that might be causing the problems. Early diagnosis of AD can help the family and the person with AD have time to make choices that will make the most of their quality of life. The best diagnosis for AD involves several kinds of tests, including both medical and psychological tests, that are used to rule out all other possible causes. ...

A presentation at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in Vancouver discussed the risk of nutritional deficiencies in severely obese teens - including in those who had weight loss surgery.
Nutritional deficiencies are the backbone of disease, sickness, ailments and pain. If the body is able to form sickness of any kind, any ailment or disease you can bet your bottom dollar that a series of nutritional deficiencies was part of the cause. When the body has what it needs nutritionally it operates much better. Its like keeping a car running. If you neglect to give a car oil changes, replace filters and keep it clean then the car begins to breakdown.. The same thing happens with our body. Nutrition is the oil and gas, the fuel if you will. Thing is, nutrition is also the signal for organs to work properly and to detoxify. Any buildup or crap within the body that shouldnt be there will remove itself if the organs responsible for filtration and detoxification can do their job properly.. The Colon, Liver and Kidneys are some of these main organs that are responsible for detoxification. When the body is clean of contaminants and toxins the nutrients can be assimilated and absorbed more ...
JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY . Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins: 1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. 2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a persons lifetime. 3 When the persons immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors. 4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors. 5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. 6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning ...
There are a number of studies which identify vitamin deficiencies in vitiligo. Vitiligo is a skin disease that is characterized by white spots on the skin. The white spots happen due to the lack of melanin in the skin. No one knows why vitiligo happens but medical researchers have related this disease to an autoimmune disorder. Other causes of vitiligo could be the result of genetics, oxidative stress, neural problems or the bodys lack of specific vitamins.. Researchers have conducted test studies on patients with vitiligo. One result these studies reveal is that people with vitiligo often lack certain key vitamins. The primary vitamins that they consistently lack is B12, folic acid, C, copper and zinc. Each of these essential nutrients play a key role with the health of the skin and its ability to produce color.. Each of these different vitamins also helps to stabilize a persons immune system. Vitamin B12 is an important substance for the skin. The reason being is that vitamin B12 regulates ...
Until quite recently, the role vitamins play in good health was largely unknown. Explorers in the renaissance found that on ships where they ate salted meat and grain, a huge variety of diseases appeared that were cured by eating a more varied diet. People began to suspect the existence of vitamins, tiny substances which were needed to sustain good health. There have been several Nobel Prizes given to scientists who correctly identified specific vitamins, as they allowed thousands of people to avoid death from deficiencies simply by eating a certain food. Today vitamin deficiencies still occur in developing countries or in those who have restrictive diets, but centuries ago people lived in fear of these deadly deficiencies whose causes were unknown and seemed to affect people at random.

If you think youve injured your radial nerve, your doctor will start by asking you about your symptoms and when they began. This may help pinpoint what caused the injury.. Your doctor will also do a physical exam. They will look at your affected arm, hand, and wrist, and compare it to your healthy arm, hand, and wrist. They may ask you to extend and rotate your arm to see if the injury affects your range of motion. Your doctor will also ask you to extend your wrist and fingers, checking for any weakness or loss of muscle tone.. Your doctor may order tests to rule out other causes of your symptoms. For example, you may have blood tests to check your blood sugar and vitamin levels, as well as your kidney and thyroid function. These tests check for signs of other conditions associated with nerve damage, such as diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, or diseases of the kidney and liver. A CT scan or MRI can also look for diseases within your head, neck, or shoulders that may result in pressure on your ...
re: John Mc - the MGB (for "mini gastric bypass") is another variation of the gastric bypass based on the Billroth II. Instead of the small bowel being cut in one place it is pulled up and anastomosed to the pouch (which is, last I talked to the inventor) created out of the cardia or ring of muscles at the top of the stomach. This is a variation of the older loop gastric bypass which leaves less stomach in tact than the Mason loop gastric bypass. The reason many surgeons do not do them may be that some patients do not show the quick weight loss results of the RNY gastric bypass and also there is a 25 percent chance of bile reflux in MGB patients which in an unspecified number of patients can cause a type of gastritis, reflux into the lungs etc. Because there is one less cut than in the RNY, it might be a tad safer but still does, according to what the ASBS says about ANY procedure which bypasses small bowel, run the risks of several complications and vitamin deficiencies seen in the older ...

2. Exercise a minimum of 4 times per week. Exercise helps restore levels of all neurotransmitters. On a relevant side note, the euphoric feeling some people get when exercising (more so with aerobic conditioning) has been attributed to endorphins, but there is no research to prove endorphins are responsible for this. More than likely, the rush of serotonin is responsible for the uplifting mood during exercise (3).. There has been a couple of small studies indicating that yoga helps increase GABA (4), but I would bet you could get a similar effect anytime you increase exercise levels of any kind.. 3. Boost your Vitamin B-6 intake (or take a B-Complex). Vitamin B6, if deficient, may impair the production of GABA as it is a cofactor nutrient. For a better understanding of cofactor nutrients see my prior article. Since overt vitamin deficiencies are rare, we use urine organic acids testing (UOA) to determine if there are any functional deficiencies. So far in the UOA testing at our clinic, we have ...

This procedure generates weight loss solely through gastric restriction (reduced stomach volume). The stomach is restricted by stapling and dividing it vertically and removing more than 85% of it. This part of the procedure is not reversible. The stomach that remains is shaped like a very slim banana and measures from 1-5 ounces (30-150cc), depending on the surgeon performing the procedure. The nerves to the stomach and the outlet valve (pylorus) remain intact with the idea of preserving the functions of the stomach while drastically reducing the volume. By comparison, in a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the stomach is divided, not removed, and the pylorus is excluded. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass stomach can be reconnected (reversed) if necessary. Note that there is no intestinal bypass with this procedure, only stomach reduction. The lack of an intestinal bypass avoids potentially costly, long term complications such as marginal ulcers, vitamin deficiencies and intestinal obstructions ...

De Jong et al. conducted a series of controlled interventions to determine if supplementation with nutrient-dense foods, an exercise program, or a combination of the two would benefit elderly subjects nutritional status and neurological functioning. Food enrichment seemed to offer the most tangible health benefits by lowering serum concentrations of substances associated with B vitamin deficiencies and increased risk for cardiovascular disease and functional decline.
What Affects the Thyroid Conversion of T4 to T3?. One of the most common causes of low thyroid in young women is the use of birth control pills. Birth control pills cause vitamin deficiencies that in turn cause a decrease in the ability of the deiodinase enzymes (specifically 5iodinase) to convert T4 to T3. This is common and mainly overlooked.. Other causes include deficiencies of Vitamins, A, C, E, B2, B3, B6, zinc, copper, iodine and selenium. There could also be deficiencies of the amino acid tyrosine and B12, which support conversion as well.. Toxic metals have an extremely negative effect on conversion, as these metals also interrupt the enzymes that are necessary. Some of these metals include calcium, mercury, lead and cadmium.. Simply having a chronic illness can affect conversion, because with any chronic illness comes stress. People who already have one autoimmune illness are at risk for others. It has been determined that 90% of people with low thyroid actually have autoimmune ...
n. a state in which absorption of one or more substances by the small intestine is reduced. It most commonly affects fat (causing steatorrhoea), some vitamins (such as B12, folate, vitamin D, and vitamin K), electrolytes (such as calcium, potassium), iron, and amino acids. Symptoms (depending on the substances involved) include weight loss, diarrhoea, anaemia, paraesthesia, swelling (oedema), and vitamin deficiencies. The commonest causes are coeliac disease, pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, blind loop syndrome, chronic infection (e.g. giardiasis), or surgical removal of a length of small intestine. ...
Growing up, we only had rice occasionally, though I always enjoyed it when we did. That all changed when I married my husband who is half Japanese. He would happily live all of his days without bread as long as he had a nice bowl of rice. While white rice was perhaps a preference in certain Asian dishes, we both enjoyed brown rice for its hearty, nutty flavor.. My mother-in-law (who was full Japanese) shared with me an interesting story of what happened in her family when they started trying to eat a healthier diet. One of the significant changes they made was to switch over to brown rice instead of white rice - which is a big deal when you are Asian. Her grandmother had started greying before this point, but her family was amazed to find that her hair started turning black again once they changed to brown rice. There are theories that greying hair is linked to certain vitamin deficiencies including some of the B vitamins. It is possible that the vitamins found in brown rice (but absent in ...
For some people, treating psoriasis without steroids may be nothing more than a few small, scaly patches at the hairline or on the sides of the nose; for others, the disease can cover the entire body. It also happens that psoriasis will go into remission for indefinite periods, before coming back. There is no doubt that psoriasis keeps people very uncomfortable and that there are several ways that patients can reduce the pain and discomfort even right from the comfort of their homes. As a result, a high-quality B complex supplement can help address the B vitamin deficiencies related to both depression and psoriasis.

While all molds can be detrimental to the human body, certain mold and spores have been recognized as the most dangerous. These dangerous indoor molds include Alternaria, Aspergillus, Chatomium, Cladosporium, Fasarium, Mucor, Penicllium and Stachybotrys. These mold spores are known to be toxic in humans and animals, and can result in disease or death when exposure occurs. These toxins are known as mycotoxins. Mycotoxins poison their hosts by attacking the hosts deficiencies. In humans, mycotoxins attack immune systems by seeking out vitamin deficiencies, caloric deprivation, alcohol abuse and infectious disease. These toxins generally affect babies, the elderly and immune-compromised or already sick individuals.. ...
Have you considered celiac disease? Its an inability to digest gluten. Celiacs usually experience a lot of gastrointestinal problems; there are dozens of symptoms related to celiac disease, because it affects your entire system. Symptoms can include fatigue, headache, achey bones, skin rashes, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, shortness of breath, etc. A blood test (celiac panel) will sometimes show elevated levels in 5 specific antibodies. (But the test is often negative) An endoscopy of your small intestine will usually show that the villae (the hairy-looking things that absorb nutrients for your bodys use) are completely flattened. Celiacs who eat gluten are unable to absorb many nutrients and end up with osteoporosis, anemia, and various vitamin deficiencies. If you havent been tested yet, it might be a good idea. It is very common in people who are descended from Northern Europeans - as high as 1 in 150 people are celiacs! (Highest incidences are in Scandinavians, Italians and Scots)If ...

The study, which appeared in The American Journal of Gastroenterology, used records from the Rochester Epidemiology Project, as well as medical, histopathology, and CD serology records to identify all new cases of CD in Olmsted County from 2000 to 2010. Findings concluded that 249 people were diagnosed with CD within the decade, an increase of 11.1 per 100,000 people to 17.4 per 100,000 people. While the study concluded, The incidence of CD has continued to increase in the past decade in a North American population, the authors noted a two-slope pattern, with the incidence leveling off after 2004.. According to the Mayo Clinics website, People with celiac disease who eat foods containing gluten experience an immune reaction in their small intestines, causing damage to the inner surface of the small intestine and an inability to absorb certain nutrients.. Common symptoms include abdominal pain and diarrhea. The decreased nutrient absorption can also cause vitamin deficiencies that can ...
Idaho State University researchers in the Bearden Vascular Health Laboratory are finding clues on how to block the effects of a chemical in the brain that contributes to dementia and strokes.. Shawn Bearden, an associate professor of physiology in the ISU Department of Biological Sciences, said that his laboratory has documented that the drug, memantine, can counter the effects that the chemical homocysteine has in disrupting the blood-brain barrier. Disruption of this barrier is believed to contribute to vascular cognitive impairment diseases such as dementia and stroke.. In brief, molecules in the bloodstream can cause leakiness in tiny blood vessels of the brain. Normally, our brains have a tight barrier from the blood because elements in the blood can be toxic to the brain. It has also been shown that people who have an abnormally high level of homocysteine, which can result from vitamin deficiencies as well as genetic differences, have a higher risk of stroke and dementia.. Bearden tested ...
Interestingly, I already have an appointment scheduled for Will to see a DAN (Defeat Autism Now) doctor next month. These doctors evaluate children on the spectrum for allergies (to stuff like gluten and casein), high metal levels, vitamin deficiencies, etc. Based on test results, the doctor can recommend a biomedical course of treatment that used in addition to conventional therapies may help children with autism. I know several moms who swear by this approach. Theyll tell you that as soon as they started their children on gluten free diets, they started talking. That after they rid their childrens bodies of toxins, they started focusing more. I had been hesitant to go this route, but now Im convinced its the route we need to take. Again, Will was not born with autism - somethings causing it and we need to figure out whats going on in that little body of his so we can treat him accordingly ...
A good immune system is essential for proper functioning of the body. When the immune system becomes impaired, it can cause symptoms like frequent sickness, allergies, fatigue, digestive issues, delayed growth and slow development.. Several factors contribute to a low immune function. Some common factors are emotional stress, sleep deprivation, vitamin deficiencies, lack of physical exercise, over exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) sunrays, excessive use of antibiotics, exposure to environmental toxins, poor dietary habits and inadequate hygiene.. Boosting the immune system is very beneficial and relatively easy through lifestyle changes and some simple home remedies.. ...
So how can a seemingly healthy 30 year old woman, who is a professional chef and makes quite a point to responsibly source food and eat healthy have vitamin deficiencies? The story gets more complex. I was so shocked by my results I absolutely had to know more, and I absolutely felt hopeful for the first time in over a year. I went into health-discovery overdrive. I saw eastern medicine doctors, holistic practitioners, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and got genetic testing done (quite easily too, through 23andme). My raw genetic details would reveal that I have mutations in the MTHFR and MAOA genes, indicating why a woman who does everything right on the outside may not feel so great on the inside. The field of genetics is a brilliant, developing one. I truly believe that how we perceive personal healthcare will completely change over the next 10 to 20 years as this area grows and more people are clued in to just how personal you can get with your health.. What I know now is why my body doesnt ...
Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums around the teeth. In most cases, people who have it do not know it because the disease does not have any symptoms. However, if the condition is not treated fast, it causes severe gum issues such as bone loss, periodical gum diseases, and tooth loss. It is usually common in areas where plaque biofilms are not adequately removed. People who have terrible oral hygiene tend to have bacteria congregate at the gum lines, thus causing an inflammatory response in the body. People with diabetes, smokers and those with vitamin deficiencies are at risk of getting the infection. This condition is more common in children because they have teeth growing and many do not brush and floss appropriately. Gingivitis infected teeth are tender and bleed severely during flossing and brushing. The following are symptoms that are commonly associated with gingivitis:. - Red or purple gums. - Bleeding during flossing and brushing. - Swollen or blunted gums. - Pus like discharge ...

Its important that as people age they find ways to keep both their bodies and minds sharp. In my years of medical practice, I have witnessed patients who experience the anxiety that comes when they recognize that their memory is failing. Whether they are forgetting where they put their keys more often, are having trouble finding words or they are in the early stages of age-related dementia, there are holistic strategies that can help lift brain fog naturally. When working with a patient, my first task is to determine whether their lifestyle is conducive to good brain function or if it is a likely cause of their "seniors moments." The brain is an organ that needs to be taken care of in order to function optimally. Like the rest of the body, it needs quality nutrition, proper rest, exercise and stress management in order to perform well. Nutritional deficiencies, such as lack of vitamin B12, can occur with age, especially if prescription medications like metformin (diabetes) or nexium and other ...

If you have coeliac disease and are vegetarian or vegan, you may be more limited in the food you can eat, and also have to be careful that you are getting all the nutrients that your body needs.. People with coeliac disease can sometimes have nutritional deficiencies, such as anaemia due to iron and B vitamin deficiencies, and osteoporosis because of problems absorbing calcium.. There have also been reports that some people on a gluten-free diet eat less calcium, which can also be true of people on certain vegetarian or vegan diets. Plan your meals carefully to make sure youre getting all the nutrients your body needs.. ...
The first section of this chapter discusses how agriculture, food prices, and household incomes set the context for the types of diets that the poor can afford to eat, the prevalence of micronutrient malnutrition, and the conditions which will drive the effectiveness of various types of interventions that can be implemented to reduce micronutrient malnutrition. The second section discusses the numbers of people affected globally by mineral and vitamin deficiencies and what are functional consequences of these deficiencies. The third section describes agricultural and non-agricultural inventions, and their relative cost-effectiveness, that are currently being used to address the problem of micronutrient deficiencies. ...

In South Africa malnutrition exists due to inadequate dietary intake of micronutrients which is one of the major causes of vitamin deficiencies leading to disease. The treatment of malnutrition over the past years has been a considerable burden on the South African economy. Therefore, food fortification is one of the current strategies used to minimize malnutrition by increasing the nutritional value of staple foods. Commercial dairy products and pharmaceutical nutritional products (food supplements) in South Africa have been developed and produced for affluent consumers. Hence the need to develop an affordable fortified dairy product for the majority of South Africans prompted this study aimed at using a "naturally" fortified kefir beverage with vitamin B12 and folate to increase B-vitamins levels. Since Propionibacterium freudenreichii and Streptococcus thermophilus are known to be good producers of vitamin B12 and folate, respectively, and propionibacteria has the ability to grow ...
In assessing nutritional deficiencies after bariatric surgery, it is important to note that there is a high prevalence of nutritional deficiencies (35%-80%) in patients with severe obesity seeking bariatric surgery. In one study, preoperative deficiencies were common: vitamin A (11%), vitamin B12 (13%), vitamin D (40%), zinc (30%), iron (16%), ferritin (9%), selenium (58%), and folate (6%) (52). Postoperative deficiencies are typically associated with diminished nutrient intake or the malabsorptive effect of bariatric procedures and are more commonly seen after BPD+DS and RYGB and are less commonly seen after SG and LAGB. Anemia (mild) is common after RYGB (15%-20%) and iron deficiency ranges from 17% to 50%; the etiology is believed to be multifactorial in nature including reduced iron and vitamin B12 absorption as well as a high rate of preexisting iron deficiency anemia in premenopausal patients (53). Deficiencies in trace minerals (selenium, zinc, and copper) and vitamins (B12, B1, A, E, D, ...
Celiac disease (CD) is apparently changing in its clinical presentation, from chronic diarrhea and malnutrition to a silent clinic at older ages. The basal enteropathy of CD induces macro-and micronutrient malabsorption. Described micronutrient deficiencies in CD include: Fe, Zn, Cu, folate, Ca, vitamin E, D, B12 and B6, with complex transporter mechanisms altered. Ferropenic anemia has been described in CD as the exclusive sign and the most common extraintestinal sign. Zn deficiency is frequent in CD, associated with growth delay and immune alterations. Even though the main basis for vitamin D metabolic status is the activation of subdermal vitamin precursors by sun-UVB rays, the small bowel compromise may affect activity and vitamin D absorption. Pathophysiology of vitamin B12 deficiency in CD is unknown; it must be suspected in CD patients presenting neurological and haematological alterations. Copper deficiency has been described mainly in adult CD patients. Micronutrient deficiencies should be
Maxim Malyshev has been providing support for drug addicts on the streets of Moscow for 10 years. He is a supporter of opioid replacement therapy and questions statistics trumpeting the success of drug-free programs.. What is the main work of the Rylkov Foundation?. We are volunteers, and our goal is to minimize damage from drug use and prevent the spreading of HIV and hepatitis among drug addicts. Five days a week, at night, my team of around 16 people and I visit locations in Moscow where drug users gather. We often find them near pharmacies. For example, for the last two years, the eye drops Tropicamide have been popular for intensifying the effect of heroin.. On the street, we give drug consumers new needles, condoms and explain how to prevent HIV. We also hand them Naloxone, a legal medication to counter overdose. For the last six months, we have saved 67 lives thanks to Naloxone.. Do you agree with the head of the Federal Drug Control Service Viktor Ivanov that as a result of replacement ...

Avitaminosis E in broiler - Veterinaria DigitalAvitaminosis E in broiler - Veterinaria Digital

The gastrointestinal tract of a bird is a specialized tube that begins at the peak and ends in the sewer. Its primary function is the conversion and digestion of food. The intestine is divided into 5 regions: gut, proventriculus, gizzard, small intestine (duodenum, jejunum and ileum) and the large intestine (blind, colon and rectum). If intestinal function is affected, digestion, absorption of food, development and well-being of the animal is reduced.. The microorganisms present in the intestinal flora of the birds are mainly bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses. The abundance and diversity of this microbiota varies along the gastrointestinal tract. The development of the adult intestinal microbiota begins at birth, where the bacteria come from the environment, from the food and from the staff who manipulate the chickens. The crop is rapidly colonized in the first 24 hours after birth. After 1 day, the ileum and the blind are also colonized by bacteria. After 3 days the level of bacteria in the ...
