The Sweet Way to Heal Your Wounds
We enjoy outdoor activities. My family will be coming over this year and I will fire up the grill for a delicious BBQ grass-fed beef. We’ll play games like badminton and horseshoes. Now while these games can be fun, they can lead to cuts and bruises. I want to aim you with an unconventional solution for those wounds. For years now, sugar’s been a dirty word. It’s been blamed for everything from obesity, heart disease and diabetes to tooth decay and acne. But there’s something they don’t know. Sugar’s better for you than all those artificial sweeteners and substitutes out there today… especially the ones you’ll find in so-called “diet” products. In one study of nearly 2,600 people, those who drank diet sodas had a 47% higher body mass index (BMI) than those who didn’t, and their risk of obesity was doubled.1 I’m always suspicious of things that aren’t natural. But there’s another reason you should keep sugar on your shelf. Did you know that sugar can heal your cuts, scrapes, burns and even large wounds without leaving a scar? It kills germs and repairs tissue better than any antiseptic or disinfectant on the market.2 Long before all these Johnny-Come-Lately naysayers started telling you how bad it was for you, sugar was valued as an antiseptic. For more than 4,000 years, since ancient Egyptian times, people have known about sugar’s miraculous properties. But it fell out o...
ConclusionsSubcutaneous amyloid deposits which cause insulin resistance are typically ill-defined and heterogeneous hypovascular subcutaneous nodules with irregular margins on imaging that correspond to insulin injection sites. It is also characteristic that T2WI shows low intensity compared with fat on MRI, reflective of the amyloid content.
acute;nez F Abstract Background: It is difficult to obtain good food reports with Food Frequency Questionnaires (FFQ) among children. In addition, validated questionnaires are scarce. Objective: The aim of this study was to validate the 'POIBA-How do we eat?' (POIBA-HDWE) FFQ and whether it could be administered to children under 10 years of age. Design: We validated the FFQ POIBA-HDWE as part of the Childhood Obesity Prevention Program (POIBA project) in Barcelona. Forty-two out of 63 primary school students (9-10 years old) answered three questionnaires: FFQ POBA-HDWE; another questionnaire, 'POIBA-How...

ABSTRACT Solid organ transplantation is a significant development in the treatment of chronic kidney, liver, heart and lung diseases. This therapeutic approach has increased patient survival and improved quality of life. New surgical techniques and immunosuppressive drugs have been developed to achieve better outcomes. However, the variety of neurological complications following solid organ transplantation is broad and carries prognostic significance. Patients may have involvement of the central or peripheral nervous system due to multiple causes that can vary depending on time of onset after the surgical procedure, the tr...

High-sensitivity Troponins (hs-cTnT and hs-cTnI) are established biomarkers to identify patients with an acute myocardial infarction. However, data comparing the capacity of these two subtypes in predicting recurrent cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in a population with stable coronary heart disease (CHD) after adjustment for several other modern biomarkers are lacking.
The higher incidence of cardiovascular disease in men than in women of similar age and the menopause-associated increase in heart diseases in women have led to the belief that gender-related differences in sex hormones might affect the development and evolution of several cardiovascular conditions , including coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, and cardiomyopathies. The well-recognized finding that the overwhelming majority of patients with TTS are postmenopausal women, with a similar prevalence across ethnic groups, has been adding fuel to the concept that female sex hormones have an important pathophysiologic role .
