FRIDAY, Oct. 2, 2020 -- Often-used drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) ease heartburn symptoms, but a new study suggests they might also increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Chinese researchers drew on information from studies of more than...

A 40-year-old man, ex-smoker with a history of type 2 diabetes mellitus and previous Helicobacter pylori associated gastritis, presented with heartburn, globus sensation, and early satiety. An esophagogastroduodenoscopy was performed and noted multiple flat hyperpigmented areas in the mid-esophagus (Figures A, arrows and B). Targeted biopsies of the esophageal lesion showed scattered squamous cells and melanocytes containing brownish melanin pigments in the basal portion of the esophageal squamous mucosa (Figure C, arrows).

Here’s a medical news story that combines a common habit (drinking coffee) with a common skin condition (rosacea) — and it even has a happy ending. What is rosacea? Rosacea is probably something you’ve seen plenty of times and didn’t know what it was — or perhaps you have it yourself. It’s that pink or red discoloration on the cheeks some people have, especially fair-haired women. Sometimes there are small bumps that may look a bit like acne. If you look closely (after asking nicely for permission, of course), you’ll see tiny blood vessels just under the surface of the skin. In mor...

At the end of a long day, it’s tempting to dive into your social feeds or Netflix queue the minute you’ve finished eating. But back before screens bogarted all our free time, an after-dinner stroll was a popular activity and one associated with improved health and digestion. “Italians have been walking after meals for centuries,” says Loretta DiPietro, a professor of exercise science at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, “so it must be good.” Research backs this up. One small study co-authored by DiPietro found that when older adults at risk fo...

It’s no exaggeration to say that lives are transformed by the Wheat Belly lifestyle. Look what happened to Susanne after her health was ruined by being gluten-free, reversed by following the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Food manufacturers, out of ignorance or ruthless profiteering, have chosen to replace wheat and gluten with cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, or potato starch—among the few foods that provoke high blood sugar and insulin more than even our favorite grain to bash, wheat. It means that people who are gluten-free and consume such garbage replacement products gain weight in visceral inflamm...

Let’s take back control over personal health. Share this to expose healthcare for the corrupt enterprise it is. Imagine that you receive a letter in the mail stating “In order to retain your right to freedom of speech, you will be billed $10,000 per year every year for the rest of your life.” You would be—-understandably-—outraged. Freedom of speech in America is precious, something Americans have waged wars to defend, something we now view as a basic right, no financial price required to maintain it. It should be free and available to everyone regardless of religion, color, political leanin...

Abstract AIM: To unravel relationships between gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms impairing quality of life (QOL) and clinical profiles of diabetes mellitus (DM) patients. METHODS: We enrolled 134 outpatients with type 2 DM. Mean age was 64.7 years, mean body mass index was 24.7 kg/m(2), mean glycated hemoglobin was 7.1%, and mean DM duration was 13.7 years. GI symptom-related QOL was determined using the Izumo scale, based on five factors, i.e., heartburn, gastralgia, postprandial fullness, constipation and diarrhea. The sum of scores obtained for the three questions in each domain was calculated, and subjects w...

In conclusion… It’s unusual that a food on the “cancer risk list” comes off of it — and it’s even more unusual that such foods then become considered a healthy choice. But, as the millions of people drinking coffee every day will tell you, when it comes to coffee, there’s nothing like it. The post The latest scoop on the health benefits of coffee appeared first on Harvard Health Blog.
