Vitamin C deficiency symptoms: Bleeding gums when brushing teeth? You could lack vitamin C
VITAMIN C is an essential vitamin everyone should include in their diets - as a lack of the vitamin can lead to scurvy. But how do you know if you are getting enough vitamin C? If you experience bleeding gums when brushing your teeth, it could be one of the symptoms of a vitamin C deficiency.
Although the epidemiology of acute upper GI bleeding (UGIB) has been changing, UGIB is still a common cause of hospital admissions worldwide, with peptic ulcers accounting for at least 30% of the UGIB episodes in large database studies.1-3 International consensus on the management of nonvariceal UGIB recommends the following: prompt assessment and risk stratification of patients, adequate resuscitation with judicious use of blood transfusion, pre-endoscopic acid suppression with proton pump inhibitors to reduce need for endoscopic therapy, early endoscopy within 24 hours of admission, and acid suppression with proton pump ...
CONCLUSION: MiES resulted an efficient treatment for ARP in patients with PD with clinical benefit, patient satisfaction and improved quality of life even at long-term follow-up. PMID: 30880501 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsIn patients receiving ticagrelor 2 days before surgery and in those receiving clopidogrel 3 days before surgery, there was an increased rate of severe bleeding. Postponing non-emergent CABG for at least 3 days after discontinuation of ticagrelor and 4 days after clopidogrel should be considered.
ConclusionCold knife and laser urethrotomy had similar efficacy regarding short-term and long-term recurrence rate andQmax, except that the cold-knife group had slightly better 6-monthQmax. However, the laser group had less risk of bleeding and lower rate of reoperation but also longer operation time.
ConclusionsThere is no known etiological connection between segmental arterial mediolysis and systemic sclerosis or scleroderma renal crisis, but it is possible that coexisting segmental arterial mediolysis and scleroderma renal crisis may have interacted to trigger the development of the other in our patient.
Conclusion: H. pylori-induced follicular gastritis is considered as an additional risk factor for bleeding from gastric varices. PMID: 30881448 [PubMed]
The last post I put up was not quite one year ago. To be honest, it has been difficult to find time to write. Even more than that, I haven’t had the desire to write about anything. Life, to be honest, has just been too busy. Most of the activity has been normal life stuff, but there have been some things that I should have written about. Because life has a strange way of throwing curve balls at any of us… An example of this centers around our changing domicile. My wife and I had to pack up and move this past November. It was not a voluntary move; the property management company that owned the house decided the...
Patients who get drug-eluting stents to open a blocked artery can stop taking aspirin after just three months, instead of the typical full year, and lower their risk of bleeding, a new study suggests.
Conclusion: The advantages of endoscopic resections; short hospitalization, low complication rates, patient comfort, and doesn't require the general anesthesia. For endoscopic resection, we think that the second endoscope shortens the duration of the procedure, reduces the complication rate, and increases the comfort of the endoscopist.

Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 56Author(s): Naga K.R. Ghattamaneni, Sunil K. Panchal, Lindsay BrownAbstractWe have investigated whether dextran sodium sulphate (DSS)-induced inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in rats can be ameliorated by intervention with cyanidin 3-glucoside (C3G). Rats were given either normal water (C) or 0.5% DSS (D) in drinking water for 12 weeks. C3G 8 mg/kg/day as Queen Garnet plum (Q) juice, purple carrot (P) juice or pure compound was added in food for final 6 weeks to C rats to give CQ, CP and CC groups, and to D rats to give DQ, DP and DC groups. No sy...
