Anorexia patients of normal weight can be just as ill as patients who are severely underweight
Despite looking a relatively healthy weight on the outside, patients are likely to have a low heart rate and ceased periods, a study by Stanford University School of Medicine found.
Hi! I am seeking some advice regarding the question on PTCAS that asks if my academic record reflects my capabilities. Most threads I have read said that unless there has been a tragedy, such as a death, answer yes. However, I was wondering if my situation would qualify as a no. My third year of college I was sick; the first semester I lost 30lbs and was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. For three semesters I sought treatment through a partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient... PTCAS Academic Record Question

AbstractWe analyzed the pathogenicity of a recent Japanese classical swine fever virus (CSFV) to wild boars via an experimental infection using boar-pig hybrids as an alternative to wild boars. We also investigated the effectiveness of a bait vaccine against the CSFV. Na ïve boar-pig hybrids and pigs showed clinical signs such as fever, leucopenia, anorexia and conjunctivitis following the experimental infection. In contrast, the boar-pig hybrids administered the bait vaccine did not show any clinical signs. Our data indicated that boar-pig hybrids and domestic pig s have similar susceptibility to the recent Japanese ...

ConclusionWe discuss here the possible mechanisms underlying this recovery, including changes in gut-derived factors that could mediate eating behavior changes.
An 85-year-old woman visited our hospital with repetitive diarrhea, nausea, and anorexia, as well as aggressive behavior. The neurologist decided to perform dopamine transporter imaging (18F-FP-CIT PET/CT) for accurate diagnosis, taking into account the potential adverse effects of l-dopa that the patient had been taking for a long time. The uptake of dopamine transporter in the bilateral basal ganglia was well preserved, but reduced uptake in the left parotid gland was incidentally detected. A subsequent salivary scan showed reduced uptake in the left parotid gland with the same pattern as that on 18F-FP-CIT PET/CT.

ConclusionsCDDP and PEM with a short hydration is well tolerated in the outpatient setting with limited toxicity.Key pointsSignificant findings of the studyCDDP plus PEM adjuvant therapy with a short hydration method is well tolerated in the outpatient setting with limited toxicity.What this study addsCDDP plus PEM with a short hydration method has the potential to be one of the options of adjuvant therapy in the future.
ConclusionsThis is the first report of a ketogenic diet used specifically for the treatment of anorexia nervosa, followed by a short series of titrated IV ketamine infusions leading to complete remission of severe and enduring anorexia nervosa, with weight restoration, and sustained cessation of cognitive and behavioral symptoms, for 6 months. Although these treatments were used sequentially the relationship between these modalities, and possible synergy, is unclear, and deserves further study. Complete and sustained remission of chronic anorexia nervosa is quite rare, and the novel use of a ketogenic diet and IV ketamine ...
In this study we explored the association between those metabolomic changes and patients ’ gut microbiome composition.
