Irreversible

Follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle and literally hundreds of diseases can be reversed: type 2 diabetes reverts to normal within weeks to months (depending on how much weight needs to be lost to restore insulin sensitivity), fatty liver reverses to normal within a few weeks, skin rashes recede, IBS and acid reflux are gone within days in the majority, high triglycerides plummet, even several forms of kidney disease can reverse. But there are health conditions that, once established, can leave effects that can be irreversible even if the initial causative condition reverses. For example, type 2 diabetes can cause kidney damage signaled by a rise in blood levels of creatinine (normal is around 1.0 mg/dl) and loss of protein in the urine. Reverse diabetes and enjoy a drop in HbA1c from, say, 11% to 5.0%—no longer diabetic—and creatinine may drop from a near-complete kidney failure level of 4.0 to 2.5–but not all the way back to normal and urinary protein loss can persist. Residual kidney damage remains, leaving the kidneys susceptible to future additional damage and failure. Another example is type 1 diabetes: Damage to pancreatic beta cells that produce insulin is initiated by the gliadin protein of wheat/rye/barley, the zein protein of corn, or the casein beta A1 of dairy and, after the offending proteins have been removed from the diet, the pancreas does not recover and type 1 diabetes persists for life, causing lifelong reliance on insulin injections.

ConclusionsFindings suggest that self-harm behavior and psychiatric disorders are associated with increased ED utilization for subsequent chronic disease-related ED utilization. Chronic disease among adolescent psychiatric patients should be attended to, potentially involving new models of clinical follow-up care.

Conclusions: Ambulatory PACE participants have average levels of physical function that are dangerously close to thresholds thought to indicate vulnerability for further disability development, hospitalization, and nursing home admission. Both dementia and comorbidity burden are associated with declines in physical function, and the interaction between these risk factors is a telling indicator to functional decline in higher-level ambulatory tasks. PACE program clinicians can use this information to better identify participants at risk for limited physical function. Further research should investigate consequences of fun...

In this study, to estimate the states that are not directly available from the Bergman minimal model a high-order sliding mode observer is proposed. Then fractional calculus is combined with sliding mode control (SMC) for blood glucose regulation to create more robustness performance and make more degree of freedom and flexibility for the proposed method. Then an adaptive fractional-order SMC is proposed. The adaptive SMC protect controller against disturbance and uncertainties while the fractional calculus provides robust performance. Numerical simulation verifies that the proposed controllers have better performance in t...

This paper deals with the design of robust observer based output feedback control law for the stabilisation of an uncertain nonlinear system and subsequently apply the developed method for the regulation of plasma glucose concentration in Type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients. The principal objective behind the proposed design is to deal with the issues of intra-patient parametric variation and non-availability of all state variables for measurement. The proposed control technique for the T1D patient model is based on the attractive ellipsoid method (AEM). The observer and controller conditions are obtained in terms of linear mat...

Publication date: Available online 20 March 2019Source: PolymerAuthor(s): Nelaka Dilshan Govinna, Thomas Keller, Christoph Schick, Peggy CebeAbstractWe have successfully electrospun un-sulfonated fibers of poly (ether ether ketone), PEEK, from the molten state at 350 °C. Unlike solution electrospinning of PEEK, which produces sulfonated fibers with reduced thermal stability, melt electrospinning produces chemically unaltered PEEK fibers. These fibers are smooth, defect-free, and round in cross-section. Most fiber diameters range from 1.5 μm to 8.5 μm. A large interstitial fiber with diameter reaching up to ...

The metallization of a textile can greatly increase their electrical conductivity for application in wearable electronic devices and smart textiles. The electrically conductive fabric can successfully turn them to the electromagnetic shielding materials. Up to now, different methods have been reported for preparing conductive textiles mostly used costly treatment in special equipment produced rough and...

The gel formation mechanism and microstructure were investigated by nuclear magnetic resonance, scanning electron microscopy, small angle X-ray scattering and rheological measurements. It was found that the oxyethyl chain of BPS-n could spontaneously form the channel-type inclus...

With almost half of British adults taking a daily vitamin,Graihagh Jackson and guests examine our love of supplements - including recent announcments about fortifying flour with folic acidAlmost half of adults in Britain take vitamins every day and wespend more on supplements than painkillers. This spring, the government will discuss whether to fortify flour with folic acid. The aim of the proposal is to prevent birth defects such as spina bifida by increasing folate intake in pregnant women.Graihagh Jackson looks atthe history of vitamins withDr Salim Al-Gailanifrom the University of Cambridge, discusses the forthcoming g...
