By the time Janet Johnson’s father reached his mid-80s, he was on so many medications their names are now impossible to recall. There were pills for managing his cholesterol, blood pressure, and asthma, says Johnson, an administrative assistant who lives near Minneapolis. Other drugs helped with his sleep problems and treated his type 2 diabetes. There were more, too, but who can remember? One thing was certain though: As the number of prescriptions increased, his health seemed to get worse.

Abstract Allergic rhinitis (AR) caused by house dust mite (HDM) and Japanese cedar pollen (JCP) represents a significant, expanding health problem in Japan. Allergic symptoms often have a severe impact on the QOL such as sleep disturbance and reduced school and work performance. In addition to the classical symptoms, AR is known to be a risk factor for the development of allergic asthma, a potentially life-threatening condition. Allergy immunotherapy (AIT) is a well-documented, safe, effective treatment option for respiratory allergic disease. It has been demonstrated that AIT can provide relief from clinical symp...

This study is aimed to estimate the prevalence of sleep impairments among asthmatic patients and examine the relationship between sleep quality, asthma control, rhinitis symptoms, and sociodemographic characteristics. METHODS: The present study adopted the observational cross-sectional research design that has been designed by the Italian Respiratory Society and used valid assessments to measure the study variables. RESULTS: Data from 1150 asthmatic patients (mean age 51.01 years ± 16.03) were subjected to analysis. 58.3% of the patients had impaired sleep quality (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index [PSQI] total...

Originally, a Trojan horse referred to the wooden horse used to cunningly penetrate and conquer the city of Troy by the Greeks. In our era, the term has been adapted to describe disguised malwares that attack unsuspecting users’ computers and wreak havoc once inside. Judging by the title of this article, how then can a condition as serious as diabetes help move the digital health agenda forward? Computer generated 3D illustration with the Trojan Horse at Troy, source: http://codingtidbit.com/ Once upon a time, empowered patients started a revolution…  It all begins with a crippling speed of bure...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) impacts up to 20% of children worldwide (1;2). Children with AD experience physical discomfort, poorer quality of life (3-5), increased behavior problems (6;7), higher frequency of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) (8-11) and higher healthcare utilization (12). Parents of children with AD report decreased quality of life (13-16), negative impact on the family (14;17), increased depression and anxiety (16), and increased work absenteeism (18;19).

The occurrence and sequelae of disorders that lead to hypoxic spells such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) exhibit daily variance. This prompted us to examine the interaction between the hypoxic response and the circadian clock in vivo. We found that the global transcriptional response...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Studies have attempted to identify prognostic indicators for successful outcomes following bariatric surgery for obesity. The aim of this study was to determine whether the degree of obesity affects outcomes in patients who are morbidly obese (basal metabolic index, BMI, 40-49.9 kg/m2), super-obese (BMI 50-59.9 kg/m2) and super-super-obese (BMI greater than 60 kg/m2) undergoing restrictive or malabsorptive bypass procedures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database was undertaken to include all consecutive laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands ...
