Rebecca’s journey to health and youthfulness

Rebecca shared her photos and experience living the Wheat Belly lifestyle: “Eliminating wheat has made such a huge difference in my health and, surprisingly, my appearance. I am 42 and have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I’m also a single mom of four and was told that it was ‘normal’ for me to be tired. But I was miserable. I was so tired it hurt despite having thyroid levels that were in the normal range. I also had brain ‘fog,’ anxiety, depression, and trouble sleeping. Doctor after doctor kept prescribing me more medicine: medicine for my mood, medicine to help me sleep. And despite all that, I still felt terrible and my symptoms continued. “I finally found a doctor who switched me to Armour thyroid, educated me on leaky gut syndrome, and developed a diet for me. One component was eliminating wheat. Since his recommendation, I have bought your book and cookbook. I expected to have fewer gastrointestinal issues. I never expected, however, to have less brain fog, more energy, and less anxiety/depression. Moreover, I frequently hear comments about my face and eyes being less puffy. I never knew that was related to wheat inflammation. Since all the changes – I have been able to stop my antidepressants, sleep medication, and lower my ADHD medication. I have lost 22 pounds and I feel like I’m slowly getting my life back. Thank you. “The pictures show the difference in my face over the past few months. I didn’t ev...

ConclusionNo significant difference was found in the clinical manifestations, mortality, and complication between children and adults but children tended to have lesser chance of using alternative antibiotics, methylprednisolone and inhaled NO. The chance of associated cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease was also significantly lower in children.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To review visual and anatomic outcomes after cataract surgery with complications in a teaching institution. METHODS: Consecutive case series. A chart review was conducted of patients who underwent phacoemulsification with intraoperative or postoperative complications, performed by ophthalmology residents under direct supervision of experienced ophthalmology attending physicians. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), OCT parameters, and postoperative treatments were reviewed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. RESULTS: One hundred thirty-three eyes were analyzed. Mean BCVA was 50...

CONCLUSION: The FFCEs generated at the hospital service corridor by an urban community DR screening teleophthalmology project did not impact negatively on its services; moreover, the service corridor was exempted from providing FFCEs to 87.4% of the diabetic population it serves. This study may help provide cost-efficiency indications for a screening protocol that would include OCT availability at the imaging site and measure its positive effects. While DR of which DME was the main cause of referral for FFCE, incidental significant sight-threatening findings were significant and approached DR as a cause of referral; this s...

This article attempts to clarify the optimal methodology for BT and the types of patients who can benefit most from BT. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of cases who received BT with the macular integrity assessment (MAIA) microperimetre. Outcome measures selected for analysis were visual acuity, PRL location, fixation stability, fixation pattern orientation, reading acuity, critical print size, and reading speed. RESULTS: Out of 30 cases who received BT, only those with age-related macular degeneration and visual acuity of logMAR 0.8 (20/126) or poorer showed a visual acuity gain (statistically significan...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of preoperative intravitreal injections of conbercept (IVC) and ranibizumab (IVR) on postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), vitreous hemorrhage (VH), and neovascular glaucoma (NVG) in a population with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) undergoing vitrectomy. DESIGN: Retrospective, cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: 386 patients with severe PDR (428 eyes). METHODS: The patients who did not receive IVC or IVR were assigned to group A (125 eyes), the patients who received IVR (0.5 mg) were assigned to group B (146 eyes), and the patient...
