Physical activity participation and the risk of chronic diseases among South Asian adults: protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis
DiscussionThis review will summarise the strength of the association between physical activity and selected chronic diseases and their markers among South Asian adults 40 years or older. The findings will provide an evidence base to guide public health policy and interventions in the South Asian region and to inform future research to address the rising burden of chronic diseases.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42018096505

I was hoping to post this on the...forum that doesn't exist...but still awaiting access. If you don't feel comfortable posting a reply on the general forum I'd really appreciate a DM. Thanks in advance... So I have an offer to work with an ortho group and wonder if I can get some insight from all you wise folks on how to fairly counter what I think is a pretty poor offer... The good: Practice is in a part of town with an excellent payor mix. It's 3 orthos who have broken off from a... What do you all think of this offer to join an ortho group...

Discussion Syphilis is caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum. It is a very old disease that despite understanding the organism and readily available treatment, still causes disease. Syphilis is transmitted sexually. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “[i]n 2018, a total of 35,063 cases of [Primary and Secondary] syphilis were reported in the United States, yielding a rate of 10.8 cases per 100,000 population …. This rate represents a 14.9% increase compared with 2017 (9.4 cases per 100,000 population), and a 71.4% increase compared with 2014 (6.3 cases per 100,000 population).” The incre...
HEART attack symptoms include difficulty breathing, chest pain, and an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. But you could also be at risk of a deadly myocardial infarction and heart disease symptoms if you develop this sign on your skin. Has your skin changed colour?
Skeletal muscle atrophy is a major consequence of several pathophysiological conditions, including neuromuscular diseases, disuse (limb immobilization, space flight), aging (sarcopenia) and other wasting conditions (i.e. cancer cachexia). Basically, a disequilibrium between anabolic/catabolic pathways leads to progressive loss of muscle mass and functional impairment. The aim of translational research in this field is to identify anabolic compounds able to support protein synthesis and muscle mass, restoring muscle function and metabolism.
The use of oral corticosteroids and reduced weight bearing in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) increases risk of poor bone health, resulting in osteoporosis, bone pain, fractures and vertebral deformities. We carried out a retrospective study within Birmingham Heartlands Hospital's Paediatrics Department, one of our largest referral centres for Neuromuscular
We report our case, along with the relevant literature. The patient is a 70-year-old man. Twelve years ago, he was diagnosed with anti-acetylcholine receptor antibody (anti-Ach-R Ab)-positive systemic MG. He underwent thymectomy and was treated with oral steroids.
