UEG: Allergy-Related Dz Tied to Irritable Bowel Syndrome at 16

FRIDAY, Oct. 16, 2020 -- Asthma and food hypersensitivity (FH) at age 12 years are associated with an increased risk for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) at age 16 years, according to a study presented at UEG Week Virtual 2020, held Oct. 11 to...

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...

AbstractBlastocystis hominis is highly prevalent with respiratory allergies among Egyptian children. Yet, little is known about the possible immunological relationship. Aims of this study were to measure complement-3 (C-3), total and specific IgE to intestinal allergens in patients ’ serum regarding the identifiedB. hominis genotypes. In a cross-sectional study, three hundred children (150 asthmatics and 150 non asthmatics) participated in the study from both sexes, mean age 7.5  ± SD (3–4) years after a questionnaire administration. PCR-based genotyping ofB. hominis selective in vitro cult...

It’s hardly news that the gastrointestinal tract is important to human health: It transports food from the mouth to the stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, and shuttles waste back out of the body. If you don’t properly nourish yourself, you don’t live. It’s that simple. But in recent years, scientists have discovered that the GI system has an even bigger, more complex job than previously appreciated. It’s been linked to numerous aspects of health that have seemingly nothing to do with digestion, from immunity to emotional stress to chronic illnesses, including can...

Authors: Theoharides TC, Kavalioti M Abstract Stress and inflammation have become the curses of our times and are the main pathogenetic factors in multiple diseases that are often comorbid and include allergies and asthma, eczema and psoriasis, fibromyalgia syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Unfortunately, there are no effective drugs. Cross-talk between mast cells and microglia in the hypothalamus and amygdala could explain stress-induced inflammation. We recently showed that the "alarmin&quo...

Abstract The intestinal microbiota are important in human growth and development. Microbial composition may yield insights into the temporal development of microbial communities and vulnerabilities to disorders of microbial ecology such as recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. Discoveries of key microbiome features of carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism are lending new insights into possible therapies or preventative strategies for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In this review, we summarize the current understanding of the development of the pediatric gastrointestinal ...

la Serena Schippa A microbial ecosystem in which bacteria no longer live in a mutualistic association is called dysbiotic. Gut microbiota dysbiosis is a condition related with the pathogenesis of intestinal illnesses (irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, and inflammatory bowel disease) and extra-intestinal illnesses (obesity, metabolic disorder, cardiovascular syndrome, allergy, and asthma). Dysbiosis status has been related to various important pathologies, and many therapeutic strategies aimed at restoring the balance of the intestinal ecosystem have been implemented. These strategies include the administratio...

This study comprised 9191 subjects with endometriosis, and 27 573 subjects randomly selected as controls. We individually followed‐up each subject (n = 36 764) for a 3‐year period to identify subjects subsequently diagnosed with BPS/IC. A Cox proportional hazards regression model was employed to estimate the risk of subsequent BPS/IC following a diagnosis of endometriosis. ResultsIncidences of BPS/IC during the 3‐year follow‐up period was 0.2% and 0.05% for subjects with and without endometriosis, respectively. The hazard ratio for developing BPS/IC over a 3‐year period for subjects wi...

Before the medical community had better understanding of the mechanisms that cause disease, doctors believed certain ailments could originate from imbalances in the stomach. This was called hypochondriasis. (In Ancient Greek, hypochondrium refers to the upper part of the abdomen, the region between the breastbone and the navel.) This concept was rejected as science evolved and, for example, we could look under a microscope and see bacteria, parasites, and viruses. The meaning of the term changed, and for many years doctors used the word “hypochondriac” to describe a person who has a persistent, often inexplicab...
