Novel concepts for the diagnosis of fatty liver and personalized treatment

(Deutsches Zentrum fuer Diabetesforschung DZD) Almost one in three adults suffer from non-alcoholic fatty liver. For the affected people this increases the risk of complications such as liver cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke. In a review article in The Lancet Diabetes&Endocrinology, Nobert Stefan and Hans-Ulrich H ä ring from the DZD and Kenneth Cusi from the University of Florida summarize current research findings and show how this knowledge can be used for personalized risk prognosis and individualized treatment.

ConclusionHemiplegic spontaneous cervical EDH occurs very rarely. It is often misdiagnosed as ischemic stroke and is likely to be administered with thrombolytic agents, making the patient's symptoms worse. Early diagnosis and rapid management of cervical EDH increase the likelihood of complete recovery of the patient's symptoms. Therefore, if there are unilateral weakness and neck pain without cranial nerve dysfunction and there is no evidence of stroke in the brain imaging, spinal EDH should be considered.

A diffusion vapour test and a subsequent analysis of three different areas of the plate were carried out. The results showed that in absence of microorganisms a gradient of concentration from the centre towards the periphery of the plate was observed for eugenol, carvacrol and cinnamaldehyde but not for thymol or linalool...

This study examines the extent to which data linkages between Indian Health Service, tribal data, and cancer registries affect cancer incidence rates among American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) in Michigan. The incidence of tobacco- and alcohol-associated cancers for 1995-2012 was analyzed to compare rates of the Upper Peninsula (UP) and Lower Peninsula (LP) in Michigan and among AI/ANs and non-Hispanic Whites (NHWs). Complete linkage resulted in 1,352 additional AI/AN cases; 141 cases were linked via IHS records alone, while 373 were linked via tribal records alone; 838 were linked through both IHS and tribal records. ...

(CNN) — Whether you eat breakfast might be linked with your risk of dying early from cardiovascular disease, according to a new study. Skipping breakfast was significantly associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular-related death, especially stroke-related death, in the study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology on Monday. After a person’s age, sex, race, socioeconomic status, diet, lifestyle, body mass index and disease status were taken into account, the study found that those who never had breakfast had a 87% higher risk of cardiovascular mortality compared with people who h...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been described as the most common endocrine disorder affecting reproductive age women. PCOS is often associated with metabolic dysfunction, obesity, glucose intolerance with hyperinsulinemia, lipid abnormalities. and hypertension. Women with PCOS also suffer higher rates of cardiovascular (CV) disease, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, diabetes, sleep apnea, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and breast and uterine cancer. However, rather than a strict cause and effect relationship, many have argued that these conditions are independent or related to a specific feature such as obesit...

No one ever had fun visiting the cardiologist. ­Regardless of how good the doc might be, it’s always a little scary thinking about the health of something as fundamental as the heart. But there are ways to take greater control—to ensure that your own heart health is the best it can be—even if you have a family history of cardiovascular disease. Although 50% of cardiovascular-disease risk is genetic, the other 50% can be modified by how you live your life, according to Dr. Eugenia Gianos, director of Women’s Heart Health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. “This means you can greatly ...
