Michelle shared her 30-day progress pictures after starting the Wheat Belly lifestyle. “This is Day 1 and Day 30 eliminating the wheat. Same time of day, fresh out of the shower, exact same lighting, and I promise, that is not a tan, it’s the middle of winter in Philly. I’m obese and was diagnosed with NAFLD, but thanks to Wheat Belly, I’m well on my way to finally getting healthy. “I lost 15 lbs in the first 30 days and am off all of medication for GERD. I truly believe that it was wheat making me sick.” Michelle’s facial changes are subtle, but there is most definitely a difference that, I believe, is most noticeable around the eyes. She also seems to have puffiness to the right and left of the mouth, another common phenomenon among the wheat/ and grain-free. And, while it is tough for us to gauge whether there has been a change in skin color given the varied lighting, it sounds like Michelle herself has noticed a change in color, perhaps accurately reflected in the photos. The non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, NAFLD, that Michelle has is a common problem with wheat, grain, and sugar consumption. And it is SO easy to reverse with wheat/grain/sugar elimination. Talk to the average doctor, however, and he will tell you that it’s because you eat too much, have too much saturated fat, and that they are trying to develop prescription drugs to treat it. Yet you can turn fatty liver around in a matter of weeks by following this lif...

, Jacobo-García K, Cossio-Aranda J Abstract Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome characterized basically by a circulatory deficit to cover the metabolic and energetic demands of the body. This condition has a broad spectrum in its clinical presentation, affects the quality of life significantly, impacts the family/social environment, and generates a great demand for health services. The purpose of this research is to report the situational diagnose of patients with HF in Mexico. We evaluated 292 patients, 70.2% were men. Average age was 56.7 ± 14.3 years. Ischemic heart disease is the main etiology (98 p...

Conclusion: The overall incidence of VTE is 4% with more than half of events occurred after the stoppage of thromboprophylaxis highlighting the necessity of adopting an extended protocol. Independent predictors included older age, female gender, morbid obesity and preoperative thrombocytosis. These group of patients require particular attention for the prevention of this complication.

Authors: Lopez RN, Lemberg DA Abstract Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) in infancy is common, physiological and self-limiting; it is distinguished from gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) by the presence of organic complications and/or troublesome symptomatology. GORD is more common in infants with certain comorbidities, including history of prematurity, neurological impairment, repaired oesophageal atresia, repaired diaphragmatic hernia, and cystic fibrosis. The diagnosis of GORD in infants relies almost exclusively on clinical history and examination findings; the role of invasive testing and empirical trials...

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: Trends in Endocrinology &MetabolismAuthor(s): Alessandra Feraco, Vincenzo Marzolla, Angelo Scuteri, Andrea Armani, Massimiliano CaprioOver the past decade, several studies have shown that activity of extra-renal mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) regulates vascular tone, adipogenesis, adipose tissue function, and cardiomyocyte contraction. In mice, abnormal activation of MR in the vasculature and in adipose tissue favors the occurrence of several components of the metabolic syndrome (MetS), such as hypertension, obesity, and glucose intolerance. Accordingly, high...

Obesity is usually associated with morbidity related to diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases. However, there are many gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases for which obesity is the direct cause [e.g. non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD)] or is a significant risk factor, such as reflux esophagitis and gallstones. When obesity is a risk factor, it may interact with other mechanisms and result in earlier presentation or complicated diseases. There are increased odds ratios or relative risks of several gastrointestinal complications of obesity: gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, Barrett...
