Something like 60 to 100 million of us live with a severe form of dysbiosis called small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, in which bowel microorganisms have ascended up the ileum, jejunum, duodenum, and stomach, a massive onslaught of infection and inflammation that results in increased intestinal permeability and entry of bacterial lipopolysaccharide, LPS, and other factors into the bloodstream that massively increase body-wide inflammation, absolute bowel disaster. But what sets this enormous disruption of human health in motion? Why would a perturbation of human health of such huge proportions get rooted in the first place? We swim in a sea of factors that disrupt bowel flora. They’re in the air, water, food, things we touch. Among the factors that change/disrupt bowel flora, altering the normal order of life and the coexistence of humans and microorganisms: Antibiotics–There are certainly times when antibiotics are truly required. But there are many more times when they are not. Each and every exposure to antibiotics alters bowel flora in ways that we can only begin to imagine. Antibiotic residues in food–Because farmers and agribusiness make such enthusiastic use of antibiotics, our food now contains substantial antibiotic residues. Herbicide/pesticide residues in food—Just as Roundup kills weeds in your lawn, so it does in your bowels. This and MANY other herbicides and pesticides in your non-0rganic food exert peculiar effects on the c...
Worldwide use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) had reduced the incidence of pneumonia and invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in children.1,2 Despite increasing vaccine coverage and a reduction in the prevalence of IPD, Streptococcus pneumoniae remains a significant cause of non-Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) in children.3 HUS is characterized by the presence of the clinical triad of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute kidney injury.
CONCLUSION: In hypertensive and diabetic patients, higher OPG values were associated with impaired LA function assessed by 2D-STE. In this high-risk patient group, serum OPG can be used as a risk predictor for LA mechanical dysfunction. PMID: 32462219 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

One in 10 coronavirus patients with diabetes died within the first seven days of hospitalization, and one in five needed a ventilator to breathe, according to a new study by French researchers.
Authors: Kuwabara-Ohmura Y, Iizuka K, Liu Y, Takao K, Nonomura K, Kato T, Mizuno M, Hosomichi K, Tajima A, Miyazaki T, Horikawa Y, Yabe D Abstract Pancreatic tail hypoplasia is a common manifestation of maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY) 5 that can cause reno-genito-urinary malformations such as renal cysts and bicornuate uterus. A 69-year-old female was admitted to our hospital for consultation on her relatively high HbA1c value. At age 20, she was diagnosed with uterus bicornis. At age 68, she was diagnosed with pancreas tail hypoplasia, renal cysts and non-functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (NE...
