Prevalence and risk factors of ibs among medical and nonmedical students in the jouf university

Conclusion: We conclude that there is an increased prevalence of irritable bowel syndrome among medical students. Male gender, married status, living in hostel, smoking, less than 8 h sleep, and carbonated drinks were predictive factors for IBS in our study. We recommend screening of medical students for irritable bowel syndrome and institution of interventional measures.

Olivia posted this incredible story of wheat-free release in the comments on this blog some time back. Her story so powerfully encapsulates how far off course health can go by consuming this thing called “wheat,” that I thought it was worth sharing with everybody again. During her wheat-consuming days, Olivia was clearly suffering body-wide inflammation and other effects that were being ineffectively “treated” by her doctor, effects largely due to the indigestible or only partially-digestible proteins from the seeds of grasses AKA wheat. As often happens, she managed to reverse the entire collection...

This study was aimed to estimate the prevalence of chronic pain in different regions of China. Data on pain and its treatment were collected from 9357 participants using questionnaires and telephone-based interviews, from 31 regions of China. Gathered data were then coded into electronic data acquisition system and descriptive and inferential statistical analysis was performed. Out of 9298 participants, the ratio of chronic pain was 31.54% with the proportion of male having chronic pain (33.86%) was higher than that of female (29.53%). The average age of participants with pain (45.02 ± 15.07 years) was higher than f...

This study aimed to investigate the impact of the update on patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in China.Methods: A previous database including consecutive patients with FGIDs (according to Rome III criteria) from gastrointestinal department of a tertiary hospital in China was re-analyzed. Demographic information, clinical symptoms, psychological status (Zung self-rating scale), and sleep quality (Pittsburgh sleep quality index) were compared between patients with Rome III and Rome IV IBS.Results: Of the 946 patients with FGIDs, only 58 (6.1%) were diagnosed with Rome IV IBS [less than 292 (30.9%) under Rome III c...

Abstract Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) is an important neurotransmitter which plays a significant role in various functions in the body, such as appetite, emotions, and autonomic functions. It is well known that biomarker 5-HT levels can be correlated to several diseases and disorders such as depression, anxiety, irritable bowel, and sleep trouble. Among various methods for detecting the 5-HT biomarker, electrochemical techniques have attracted great interest due to their low cost and ease of operation. However, sensitive and precise electrochemical detection of 5-HT levels is not possible using bare elect...
