The prevalence of pelvic floor disorders and degree of bother among women attending primary care clinics in armenia
Pelvic floor disorders (PFD) including stress urinary incontinence (SUI), overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms, anal incontinence (AI), pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and sexual dysfunction affect millions of women throughout the world. Studies have shown that 11%-35.5% of women suffer from PFD ’s globally [1,2]. In developed countries, 25% of women experience at least one or more PFD’s . Evidence from these countries shows that advancing age, parity, obesity and vaginal birth are common risk factors of PFD’s.
Post-traumatic hydrocephalus (PTH) or secondary normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) are common complications that follow traumatic brain injury (TBI). PTH clinical features are similar to NPH and can be characterized by a triad of gait apraxia, cognitive deficits, and urinary incontinence. Symptoms may progress to psychomotor slowing, dementia, and the need for institutionalized care. Additionally, patients with TBI often experience a loss of impulse control, aggressive behaviors, and personality changes.
Authors: Lee YM, Park SH, Lee DH Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper is to propose a new hypothesis for the role of lipophilic chemical mixtures stored in adipose tissue in the development of dementia. Specifically, we present how the dynamics of these chemicals can explain the unexpected findings from the Action for Health in Diabetes (Look AHEAD) study, which failed to show long-term benefits of intentional weight loss on cognition, despite substantial improvements in many known risk factors for dementia. Moreover, we discuss how the role of obesity in the risk of dementia can change depending on the dynami...

In conclusion, chronic supplementation with 1% glycine did not have any significant detrimental side effects in our model. However, more studies are still necessary to evaluate the effect of 1% glycine supplementation in humans. PMID: 32091321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
