AbstractPurpose of ReviewChronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) has a significant negative impact on quality of life (QoL). Surgical treatment of CRS is indicated when medical therapy fails to achieve adequate symptom control. This review summarizes the latest information on the outcomes after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) with relation to QoL, revision rates, olfaction, absenteeism, asthma control, use of systemic medications, quality of sleep and complications. We also provide an update regarding the factors that can impact outcomes.Recent FindingsCRS has classically been divided into two phenotypes depending on the presence or a...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Asthma contributes to significant morbidity and healthcare utilization in adults. Insufficient and excessive sleep duration have known adverse effects on health. Little is known about the impact of sleep duration on health outcomes in adults with asthma. OBJECTIVE: To examine associations between sleep duration, patient-reported outcomes, and healthcare use in adults with asthma from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). METHODS: Cross-sectional data from the 2007-2012 NHANES survey were analyzed. Asthma was identified by self-report. Habitual hours of sleep ...

Olivia posted this incredible story of wheat-free release in the comments on this blog some time back.

During her wheat-consuming days, Olivia was clearly suffering body-wide inflammation and other effects that were being ineffectively “treated” by her doctor, effects largely due to the indigestible or only partially-digestible proteins from the seeds of grasses AKA wheat. As often happens, she managed to reverse the entire collection...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Little is known about the measurement properties of Patient-Oriented Scoring Atopic Dermatitis (PO-SCORAD) in adults with AD. Even less is known about how PO-SCORAD performs compared to the Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM). OBJECTIVE: To examine the measurement properties of PO-SCORAD and compare them with POEM. METHODS: A prospective dermatology-practice based study of 291 AD patients (age 1872 years). RESULTS: PO-SCORAD and POEM were moderately correlated with each other (Spearman rho=0.56); had weak-moderate correlations with Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) worst-itch and av...

AbstractBackgroundMigraine has many presumed comorbidities which have rarely been compared between samples with and without migraine. Examining the association between headache pain intensity and monthly headache day (MHD) frequency with migraine comorbidities is novel and adds to our understanding of migraine comorbidity.MethodsThe MAST Study is a prospective, web-based survey that identified US population samples of persons with migraine (using modifiedInternational Classification of Headache Disorders-3 beta criteria) and without migraine. Eligible migraine participants averaged ≥1 MHDs over the prior 3 months...
