When iron supplements are given to treat iron deficiency, only a small amount of the iron is actually absorbed (2% to 28% depending on the study). To compensate for this, relatively large doses of iron are given – and the unabsorbed iron left in the gut contributes to the common side effects of taking iron (nausea and constipation). It can also increase inflammation in the gut and negatively affect the microbiome, the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut. How to solve the problem? A standard recommendation has been to split the dose throughout the day in an attempt to increase the amount of iron actually absorb...

Authors: Mozaffari S, Nikfar S, Abdollahi M Abstract INTRODUCTION: The extensive and alarming use of opioids for pain management in patients with chronic pain receiving palliative care is associated with non-tolerable gastrointestinal (GI) adverse effects. Opioid-induced constipation (OIC) is the most common adverse effect impairing patient quality of life (QOL). In addition, OIC is one of the treatment limiting consequences of opioid analgesics. Management of OIC is becoming a challenge since traditional laxatives have limited efficiency. Peripherally acting mu-opioid receptor antagonists (PAMORA) have been develo...

AbstractThe 2017 annual symposium organized by the University Medical Center Groningen in The Netherlands focused on the role of the gut microbiome in human health and disease. Experts from academia and industry examined interactions of prebiotics, probiotics, or vitamins with the gut microbiome in health and disease, the development of the microbiome in early-life and the role of the microbiome on the gut –brain axis. The gut microbiota changes dramatically during pregnancy and intrinsic factors (such as stress), in addition to extrinsic factors (such as diet, and drugs) influence the composition and activity of the...

Conclusion: Phentermine–topiramate could be helpful for weight loss and reduction of binge-eating symptoms in patients with obesity or overweight in addition to BED. Controlled studies are warranted.
