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...

AbstractWe developed algorithms to identify pregnant women with suicidal behavior using information extracted from clinical notes by natural language processing (NLP) in electronic medical records. Using both codified data and NLP applied to unstructured clinical notes, we first screened pregnant women in Partners HealthCare for suicidal behavior. Psychiatrists manually reviewed clinical charts to identify relevant features for suicidal behavior and to obtain gold-standard labels. Using the adaptive elastic net, we developed algorithms to classify suicidal behavior. We then validated algorithms in an independent validation...

Authors: Nayak AS, Nachane HB Abstract Out of the various risk factors for postpartum depression, use of pharmacotherapy during pregnancy is the most poorly understood. The present study aimed to establish risk of postpartum depression and suicidal ideations with antenatal use of alpha methyldopa. Out of the 100 postpartum women assessed, 77.78% of the women who were prescribed alpha methyldopa had significant postpartum depression. There was statistically significant risk of postpartum depression associated with alpha methyldopa (p = 0.026, OR = 6.45). There was no increased suicidal ri...
