What do they look like? How to set up/troubleshoot? The IV formulations are just on a regular pump - any other wisdom on these? Thanks!

In the several decades since the need for dietary zinc was discovered, it has proven to be far more important to overall health than initially thought. And deficiency is proving to be common. You may recall that the phytates of wheat and grains block nearly all absorption of dietary zinc, along with blocking iron, calcium, and magnesium (all positively-charged cations). Just as iron deficiency anemia with hemoglobin values of 7 or 8 g/dl resistant to iron supplementation commonly develops in grain-consuming populations, so a parallel zinc deficiency also develops (although not well reflected by blood levels of zinc, which ...

  One big hypertension trial called SPRINT was published in 2015, has caused major delayed aftershocks in the hypertensive world now in 2017. The new guidelines by 2017  AHA/ACC is based primarily on SPRINT data which in my opinion has so much flaws it shouldn’t have been accepted for publication in the first place. !(Intentions and Aim of a study can never be questioned even by most prestigious journals you know !) The flaws begin right  from study design itself. Why diabetic population was excluded from the SPRINT trial is not clearly answered in the true interest of public.The Ironical argument is ...

Authors: Espinola-Klein C Abstract The current European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines on peripheral arterial diseases include recommendations on diagnostics and treatment of atherosclerotic manifestations in peripheral arteries. Because of the high coincidence of atherosclerosis in different arterial territories, screening for other atherosclerotic lesions is necessary in patients with clinical symptoms in one vascular bed. Consistent treatment of cardiovascular risk factors is important in all patients with peripheral atherosclerosis. This includes smoking cessation, statin therapy and control of blood pr...

This study aimed to evaluate the predictors of delayed surgical intervention in ASDH patients who are initially managed conservatively. Methods: From January 2007 to December 2015, 842 patients diagnosed with ASDH were treated at our institution. Among them, 158 patients with convexity ASDH were initially treated conservatively. Patients were divided into a delayed surgery group and a conservative group. Demographic characteristics, past medication and medical histories, and radiological and laboratory data were collected by retrospective chart review. Independent risk factors were identified with univariate and multiv...

Authors: Chakma T, Kavishwar A, Sharma RK, Rao PV Abstract A community based cross-sectional study was carried out to assess the prevalence of hypertension and associated risk factors like salt intake, 24-h urinary sodium excretion and body mass index (BMI) among tribal population of Mandla District, Central India. A total of 3090 individuals, from 1258 house hold drawn from 33 sampled villages and 12 urban wards were studied for blood pressure measurements and clinical examination, while 414 urine samples were collected for estimation of 24-h sodium excretion. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression were us...

Abstract Angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors are used as therapeutic agents for the treatment of hypertension. Regular consumption of black tea (Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze, Theaceae) has been reported to lower blood pressure. The aims of the present work were to compare chemical composition and angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitory properties of infusion and decoction of four samples of black tea. GC/MS based metabolomics approach helped in identification of fifty-one metabolites including ten organic acids, one inorganic acid, sixteen amino acids, two sugars, five sugar alcohols, fifteen phenols and flavono...
