Conclusions: Pre-injury psychiatric and pre-injury headache/migraine symptoms are risk factors for worse functional and post-concussive outcomes at 3- and 6-months post-mTBI. mTBI patients presenting to acute care should be evaluated for psychiatric and headache/migraine history, with lower thresholds for providing TBI education/resources, surveillance, and follow-up/referrals. Clinical Trial Registration: www.ClinicalTrials.gov, identifier NCT01565551. Introduction Traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

This study aims to evaluate the association between gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) at first pregnancy and the incidence of cancer within 10 years postpartum. We used customized health information data from the National Health Insurance Corporation (NHIC). This retrospective cohort study included data from women who were not previously diagnosed with diabetes or any kind of malignancy in the National Health Screening Examination through the NHIC during 2002–2003, and only women who had their first delivery between 2004 and 2005 was included. Follow-up cancer diagnosis was carried out up until 2015. Among the ...

Purpose of review The current review evaluates the impact of pregnancy on women with thyroid cancer in three different clinical situations: those with newly diagnosed differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), those under active surveillance for papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PMCs), and those with previously treated DTC. Recent findings Recent pregnancy is not associated with high-risk pathological features of DTC. In women with known PMCs under active surveillance, pregnancy does not increase the risk of disease progression. Thus, deferring surgery for newly diagnosed DTC or known PMCs until after delivery is safe for ...

Authors: Hepp Z, Lage MJ, Espaillat R, Gossain VV Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate outcomes associated with adherence to levothyroxine (LT4) in the US adult hypothyroidism population. METHODS: We used data from Truven's MarketScan databases from July 1, 2011 through December 31, 2015. Patients aged 18 or older were diagnosed with hypothyroidism (confirmed at least twice) and prescribed LT4. Patients were excluded if they did not have continuous insurance coverage or if they received a diagnosis of thyroid cancer or pregnancy during the study period. Multivariable analyses on a matched cohort of adherent and non-...

Men and women follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle and can undergo important and sometime startling hormonal changes. Though results vary with stage of life—young adults, middle-aged, older—there are a variety of hormonal changes that women and men typically experience, some in concert, others independently. Such hormonal shifts can be powerful and part of the health-restoring menu of changes that develop with this lifestyle. They can even improve a relationship in a number of ways, both physically and emotionally, especially if we weave in some of the newer Wheat Belly/Undoctored concepts and practices such as oxy...

By ANDY ORAM Clayton Christensen, the famous economist who popularized ideas of innovation and disruption, showed up at the recent Connected Health conference in Boston. Although billed as a panelist, he turned up without warning as a guest in a keynote and posed the same question I asked in an article back in July: “The overarching question: whither technology?” Like my article, Christensen distinguished between incremental improvements that don’t challenge current power structures or sources of revenue, and disruptive change that offers new solutions to old, intractable problems. Disruptive change, as s...

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...

Conclusions: Developmental exposure to 0.5 μg/kg BW/d of BPA, which is 8–10 times lower than the current preliminary EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) tolerable daily intake (TDI) of 4 μg/kg BW/d and is within the range of environmentally relevant levels, was associated with sex-specific differences in the expression of genes in adipose tissue plasma triglyceride levels in males and adipocyte cell density in females when F344 rat offspring of dams exposed to BPA at 0.5 μg/kg BW/d were compared with the offspring of unexposed controls. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP505 Received: 13 Ma...
