A572 Conversion of Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy to Duodenal Switch is a Reliable Option for Weight Recidivism with Minimal Risk of Vitamin Deficiencies

The vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) currently accounts for almost 60% of all bariatric surgeries in the US. Unfortunately, more than 50% of patients experience some degree of weight recidivism. The biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS) is a highly malabsorptive procedure with better long-term weight loss. It isn ’t clear if patients have greater vitamin deficiencies.

This study demonstrates for the first time that senescent cells secrete functional LTs, significantly contributing to the LTs pool known to cause or exacerbate idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Against Senolytics https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/against-senolytics/ There is no consensus in science that is so strong as to have no heretics. So here we have an interview with a naysayer on the matter of senolytic treatments, who argues that the loss of senescent cells in aged tissues will cause more harm to long-term health than the damage they will do by remaining. To be clear, I think this to be a ...

Much of the long-term harm caused by excess visceral fat tissue is due to raised levels of chronic inflammation, the inappropriate over-activation of the immune system characteristic of both obesity and aging. Chronic inflammation accelerates the progression of near all of the common age-related conditions. There are numerous mechanisms via which fat tissue rouses an immune response: cellular debris that triggers immune cells into action; generation of excessive numbers of senescent cells; inappropriate signaling from fat cells that mimics the response to infection; infiltration of inflammatory macrophages into fat tissue;...

ConclusionThe Wallace rule of nines is a quick and acceptable method for estimating the total burn surface area percentage in men of all BMI ranges. However, for women, a more accurate method of burn area estimation is required as proposed by our BMI adjusted charts.

(Natural News) The lack of exercise can contribute to a wide array of health problems, including obesity and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. In fact, around 39 percent of the American adult population is obese. For people who have sedentary lifestyles, but can’t allot time for exercise, there are natural ways to burn fat...

(CNN) — Should you eat before or after exercise in the morning? The debate has raged for years. The eat-first camp says food before exercise boosts blood sugars, giving the body fuel to increase the intensity and length of a workout. It also keeps you from being fatigued or dizzy. The eat-after camp says you burn more fat if you fast before exercise. A small UK study published Friday supports the latter point of view: In 30 obese or overweight men, those who exercised before breakfast burned twice the fat as men who ate breakfast before they worked out. That’s because exercising with no fuel forces the body to ...

CONCLUSION: Our study reinforces the role of older age, obesity and hepatomegaly as predictors of fatty liver disease. These variables should be considered in the assessment of fatty changes in the livers of potential liver donors.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Body mass index (BMI) is linked to Type 2 diabetes (T2D). Although romantic partners influence each other's health outcomes, it is unclear if partner's BMI is related to the development of T2D. PURPOSE: To test prospective, dyadic associations between BMI and the development of T2D in middle-aged and older adult couples over 8 years. METHODS: Data came from 950 couples in the Health and Retirement Study. Neither partner had diabetes at baseline (2006). The actor-partner interdependence model was used to examine dyadic associations between BMI at baseline and the development of T2D du...
