Authors: Liu J, Chen H, Wu D, Wei R, Lv C, Dong J, Wu D, Yu Y Abstract Background: Stimulant laxatives are still considered the most common treatment for functional outlet obstruction constipation (FOOC). However, the effectiveness of laxatives is unsatisfactory, and the long-term use of laxatives may cause certain adverse events. With this in mind, it is, however, paramount that novel complementary treatment(s) and/or other forms of alternative medicine are adequately investigated. Aims: The study aims to explore the effects and potential mechanism(s) of transcutaneous electrical acustimulation (TEA) combined ...

Authors: Sun Y, Yan C, Jin S, Shi C, Zhao J, Li G Abstract Recent studies have identified the curative effects of traditional Chinese medicine for constipation. The mechanism of action of Guiren Runchang granules (GRGs) in the treatment of slow transit constipation (STC) was evaluated in this study. Here, we assessed the efficacy of GRG by comparing the differences in fecal characteristics, stool weight, and intestinal transit rate (ITR) among 6 groups (n = 12/group), which were administered three concentrations of GRG, mosapride, and saline. The influence of GRG on the SCF/c-kit pathway, AQP4, and se...

CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort of women with vulvar diseases, vitamin D levels and supplementation were not significantly different amongst women with vulvar lichen sclerosus or other non-lichenoid vulvar diseases. Furthermore, vitamin D levels are not serum biomarkers for OAB, urinary incontinence, constipation, or IBS. PMID: 30747611 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe overall work productivity impairment as a result of nocturia is substantial and was found to be similar to impairment observed as a result of several other more frequently researched common chronic diseases. Greater awareness of the burden of nocturia, a highly bothersome and prevalent condition, will help policy makers and healthcare decision makers provide appropriate management of nocturia.

This study aims to compare the prevalences of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and constipation in women with vulvar diseases to those from the general population. Methods: Three groups of women were recruited from the University of Michigan Gynecology Clinics, women with: (1) biopsy proven lichen sclerosus (LS), (2) non-LS vulvar diseases (vulvar controls, VC), and (3) presenting for annual examinations (AE). All patients completed self-administered surveys and validated pelvic floor symptom questionnaires. Results: 317 subjects were enrolled: 101 with LS, 86 VCs, and 130 AEs. Compared t...
