Authors: El Salam MAA Abstract Obesity is a highly prevalent non-communicable disease worldwide and is commonly associated with male infertility. Several etiopathological theories have been mentioned in the literature by which obesity affects spermatogenesis, thus affecting the male fertility potential. Mechanisms for explaining the effect of obesity on male infertility include endocrinopathy, increased aromatization activity, associated erectile dysfunction, psychological and thermal effects, obstructive sleep apnea, increased leptin and oxygen free radicals, and associated inflammatory and obstructive elements of...

CONCLUSION: Daptomycin therapy appeared to cause a false and substantial INR elevation in a patient who had been receiving warfarin. Results of TEG suggested that the INR elevation was an artifact of a drug-laboratory interaction and did not represent an anticoagulated state. The patient's INR normalized after linezolid was substituted for daptomycin. PMID: 29472508 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Yuan H, Li X, Wan G, Sun L, Zhu X, Che F, Yang Z Abstract Facing the challenge of effective prevention type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in China (as part of global health) requires knowledge about both the temporal trend and risk factors variation in T2DM. We searched the PubMed, CNKI, WANFANG, and International Diabetes Federation (IDF) databases for data on the prevalence of T2DM/ IGT (impaired glucose tolerance) published from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2014 in China, Japan and Korea. The prevalence of T2DM was estimated with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) using random-effects meta-analysis. T2DM prevalence ...

The objective of this study was to determine if weight loss surgery is associated with decreased prevalence of urinary incontinence (UI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) symptoms. Methods A survey was conducted among previously morbidly obese women who underwent bariatric surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston from 2007 to 2015. In addition to the Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory 20, we collected demographic and clinical data including symptoms of and treatment for UI and POP before surgery. Participants were divided into 4 quartiles based on self-reported postsurgical weight loss: less than 26.1 kg, 26.1 to 36.2...

Conclusions:Ace-K and sucralose transfer into breast milk following ingestion of a diet soda. Future research should measure concentrations after repeated exposure and determine whether chronic ingestion of sucralose and acesulfame-potassium via the breast milk has clinically relevant health consequences. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine sucralose and acesulfame-potassium (ace-K) pharmacokinetics in breast milk following maternal ingestion of a diet soda. Methods: Thirty-four exclusively breast-feeding women (14 normal-weight, 20 obese) consumed 12 ounces of Diet Rite Cola, sweetened with 68-mg sucr...
