This review is an overview, over the period 2009 –2019, of the most frequently reported adulterants in dietary supplements for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, obesity/overweight, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension and the analytical methods used for their detection. AbstractAt present, there is a growing trend toward the intentional adulteration of dietary supplements (DS) with synthetic pharmaceuticals, which represents an alarming emerging risk to consumers and a serious problem for regulatory agencies. An amazing array of synthetic drugs and their analogues have been reported as adulterants in DS. Mainly, ...

Authors: Pilone V, Tramontano S, Cutolo C, Marchese F, Pagano AM, Di Spirito F, Schiavo L Abstract We aim to assess the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency (VDD) in patients scheduled for bariatric surgery (BS), and to identify factors that might be associated with VDD. We conducted a cross-sectional observational study involving all consecutive patients scheduled for BS from 2017 to 2019. The exclusion criteria were missing data for vitamin D levels, intake of vitamin D supplements in the 3 months prior to serum vitamin D determination, and renal insufficiency. A total of 206 patients (mean age and body mass index...

Abstract Cyclical Cushing's syndrome (CS) is a rare disorder in which cortisol secretion is cyclical and intermittent. This phenomenon makes for a challenging diagnosis, as patterns of cycling can vary widely among patients and as patients with cyclical CS do not exhibit unique clinical features compared to those without cycling. Current research suggests that cyclical CS may be present in approximately 15% of adult cases, with an even lower reported prevalence in the pediatric population. In this case study, we describe a 15-year-old female with obesity and hypertension who was then diagnosed with cyclical CS aft...

Lu Chen The relationships between regular participation in annual physical examinations and the risk factors for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) among adults with disabilities remains unclear. To address this gap, we used data from 130,899 individuals with disabilities in Shanghai (2014–2016) and evaluated four risk factors for NCDs: hypertension, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and being overweight. Overall, 4540 individuals participated in annual physical examinations across all three years and 11,388 missed examinations in 2015 (group without regular participation). Chi-squared tests and binary logisti...

AbstractHeart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a complex heterogeneous disease for which our pathophysiological understanding is still limited and specific prevention and treatment strategies are lacking. HFpEF is characterised by diastolic dysfunction and cardiac remodelling (fibrosis, inflammation, and hypertrophy). Recently, microvascular dysfunction and chronic low-grade inflammation have been proposed to participate in HFpEF development. Furthermore, several recent studies demonstrated the occurrence of generalized lymphatic dysfunction in experimental models of risk factors for HFpEF, including obe...

Cognition is an important function of the brain that enables us to acquire and process information, to enhance our understanding of thoughts, experiences, and our senses. Any condition that affects our ability to think, reason, memorize, or be attentive affects our cognitive ability. Some cognitive decline is a normal part of aging, but there are many things you can do to prevent or forestall cognitive changes as you age, including when planning for surgery. Older adults are having more surgical procedures As our population ages and medicine and healthcare advances, more older adults are likely to develop serious condition...

Authors: Franco R, Barlattani A, Perrone MA, Basili M, Miranda M, Costacurta M, Gualtieri P, Pujia A, Merra G, Bollero P Abstract Obesity is linked to other systemic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, and arterial hypertension. These comorbidities increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease risk. Adipose tissue is a true endocrine organ and releases various pro-inflammatory cytokines. Periodontal disease (PD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gingiva and bone support (periodontal tissues) that surrounds the teeth. The relationship between obesity and an increased risk of developin...
