Muffin tops, man boobs, and bagel bumps: These are among the varied and perverse ways that the hormonal distortions inflicted on unwitting humans who consume the seeds of grasses, i.e., grains, show themselves. In our modern world filled with thousands of processed foods, there are plenty of landmines for health. Gummy bears and gumdrops will rot teeth, for instance. Indulge in a handful of dried prunes and you’ll have to schedule a substantial portion of your day on the toilet due to bowel irritants. But only wheat and grains are associated with a wide swath of health problems that range from autoimmune disease to m...

Authors: Ozgur K, Bulut H, Berkkanoglu M, Humaidan P, Coetzee K Abstract The present study was performed to investigate whether maternal body mass index (BMI) affected the live birth (LB) outcomes of frozen embryo transfers (FET) in patients who underwent freeze-all treatment cycles. The autologous intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles with blastocyst freeze-all cycles performed between February 2015 and January 2016 were retrospectively investigated. The 1188 subsequent FET performed were grouped according to maternal BMI classes for analysis; underweight (

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder associated with poor reproductive outcomes, including infertility and pregnancy complications, and poor metabolic outcomes, including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome. Prevalence estimates for PCOS range from 7% to 15% of reproductive-age women worldwide, depending on the diagnostic criteria used. Accordingly, PCOS-associated dysglycemia and obesity are a global public health risk. Despite the public health importance of PCOS, notable gaps exist in the literature regarding its pathophysiology, natural history, and optimal management.

Bradley Goldman has filled out a size large T-shirt his whole adult life. As a bodybuilder, he knew that a steady stream of lean, bland proteins, heavy weights and steroids would make his muscles pop. But over the past six months, Goldman, a fitness and nutrition consultant in Los Angeles, has watched his jacked physique soften and shrink. “I cracked a couple of weeks ago, and I had to buy a shirt a whole size smaller,” he says. He tried it on for his wife Brittany, and it hung loose on his frame. “I just kind of shook my head,” he says. He knew she saw the changes too. Goldman, now 30, began takin...

Authors: Macut D, Milutinović DV, Rašić-Marković A, Nestorov J, Bjekić-Macut J, Stanojlović O Abstract Over the last decade, huge achievements have been made in the fields of neurophysiology, molecular endocrinology, and biochemistry, as well as in the successful translation of clinical research into diseases into clinical practice. As regards female reproduction, most of the advances made in this area were achieved in gonadal axis regulation, regulation of behavior through sex steroids, reproductive genetics, preservation of ovarian reproductive function, steroid profiling, and metabolic and overall re...

Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common metabolic and endocrine disorder in women, leading to infertility. However, there is no general agreement concerning how to diagnose and treat PCOS. The Rotterdam consensus statement from the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology/American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the Chinese diagnostic criteria and consensus statement, and the clinical practice guideline from the Endocrine Society in the USA are widely recognized. Guidance has been provided for clinical practice based on a comparative analysis of the above three practice guideli...
