Can Your Antacid Cause Alzheimer ’s Disease?
Can your antacid really cause Alzheimer’s Disease? Recent research suggests that, indeed, proton pump inhibitors, some of the most common drugs for reducing feelings of heartburn, can cause an increase in the ‘beta amyloid’ deposits in the brain that are indicative of Alzheimer’s Disease. This is in addition to some of the other serious Proton Pump Inhibitor Side Effects, like osteoporosis, magnesium deficiency and heart rhythm problems; Antacid Medications can Even Ruin Your Gut. These problems can occur even when these heartburn relieving drugs are taken for short amounts of time. All too often, though, these drugs, with names like: Omeprazole Lansoprazole Pantoprazole Esomeprazole Rabeprazole and other drugs in the same class are taken for many years, which can cause Alzheimer’s at a much higher rate than those who do not take them. Is the risk of permanent loss of memory worth it for temporary heartburn relief that can be accomplished using other means that don’t cause Alzheimer’s? Solving the underlying problem can even DECREASE the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s, rather than increasing the risk with dangerous drugs. “Studies have shown that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) increase the brain burden of amyloid-beta (Aβ) and also create vitamin B12 deficiency. However, these two phenomena have deleterious effect on cognition and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).” Cognitive impact after short-term expos...

Authors: Wang Y, Chen F, Wang P, Mana L, Sheng N, Huang S Abstract Shenzhiling oral liquid (SZL) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) compound to be approved by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) (Z20120010) for the treatment of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, its mechanism in early AD is not clear. We studied its mechanism in protecting myelin. Three-month-old APPswe/PS1dE9double transgenic mice were used as AD model and wild-type C57BL/6 mice were used as control. After 3-month intervention, the Morris water maze was used to detect behavioural changes. Myelin mTOR pathway (PI3K, ...
AbstractThis video shows the case of a 64-year-old morbidly obese woman, with a non-adjustable gastric band, who consulted for weight regain and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms and was converted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). The operative technique included extensive lysis of adhesions, complete band dissection, partial gastrectomy of the fundus and body due to band erosion and conversion to RYGB.
ConclusionCombined laparoscopic pouch resizing and distalization are safe and can lead to adequate weight loss. This technique allows the combination of an added restriction and malabsorption to the previous RYGB and could lead to an improved weight loss.

Authors: van Dyck CH, Arnsten AFT, Padala PR, Brawman-Mintzer O, Lerner AJ, Porsteinsson AP, Scherer RW, Levey AI, Herrmann N, Jamil N, Mintzer JE, Lanctôt KL, Rosenberg PB Abstract The public health burden of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is related not only to cognitive symptoms, but also to neuropsychiatric symptoms, including apathy. Apathy is defined as a quantitative reduction of goal-directed activity in comparison to a previous level of functioning and affects 30%-70% of persons with AD. Previous attempts to treat apathy in AD-both nonpharmacologically and pharmacologically-have been wanting. Catecholamine...

DEMENTIA is a cluster of symptoms associated with brain damage but its impact on the body does not stop there. A lesser known affected area is the bladder - here are three warning signs.
