I’m an RN. I ordered Grain Brain after seeing you on FOX &Friends. My husband had ignored my suggestions that he lose weight for years. The last week of November and first week of December 2013 he was going to have cataract surgery. I suggested he try the low-carb, gluten-free diet because his blood sugar a year before had been pre-diabetic. He was concerned about the chance of infection and loss of sight so he agreed. During the week before Thanksgiving and the week after, he lost 10 pounds! His 2-hour post-prandial blood sugar was 98. To date, he has gone from 215 pounds a week before Thanksgiving to 192.9 pounds yesterday, a loss of 22 pounds! Even through the Christmas holidays he lost. He tells everyone he’s never hungry and enjoys his food. At 68 he looks 20 years younger. We have also started some of the supplements suggested in Grain Brain: Vitamin D 5000 IU, CoQ10 100 mg, fish oil 2000 mg. We plan an appointment with our internist to get our vitamin D, Hg A1C, CRP, Cyrex Array 3, and a pattern B LDL profile levels. We’ve also started using Turmeric daily on our food like most people use salt. We are working on stopping or reversing inflammation. I have had patches of psoriasis on my elbows every winter for the last 10 years. This year I don’t have it. We are anxious to see what the CRP is for us both. -Ruth Ann N.

CONCLUSIONS: GC treatment has implications in CVR, despite in SSc GC doses administered are lower than in other autoimmune diseases (in our cohort even prednisone ≤10 mg daily was associated with ED). GC may be associated with an early vascular damage in these patients, which could lead to changes in FMD, ED and finally AP. On the other hand, optimum levels of 25(OH)D3 seemed to be beneficial against vascular damage. PMID: 32083542 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Scheen AJ Abstract Introduction: Sodium-glucose cotransporter type 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) have a complex relationship with the kidney so that their use in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) has long been challenged.Areas covered: SGLT2is in patients with DKD are discussed: renal mechanisms of action, PK/PD characteristics, clinical use in patients with stage 3 DKD, effects on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albuminuria, cardiovascular and renal outcomes according to renal function, overall and renal safety, SGLT2is new place in updated guidelines.Expert o...

In this study, the enhanced mice live somewhat longer than their unmodified peers, though not as much longer as is the case for the application of telomerase gene therapy. The mice do also exhibit reduced cancer risk, however. The scientists here class telomere shortening as a cause of aging, which is not a point universally agreed upon. Reductions in average telomere length in tissues looks much more like a downstream consequence of reduced stem cell activity than an independent mechanism. Researchers obtain the first mice born with hyper-long telomeres and show that it is possible to extend life without any geneti...

Discussion Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 is an essential molecule for maintaining immune homeostasis and subverting inflammation. Disorders arising from excess inflammation or SOCS1 deficiency can be potentially treated with SOCS1 mimetics (Ahmed et al., 2015). While SOCS1 has promising potential in many disorders, it should be noted that new targets and actions of SOCS1 are still being discovered and not all the effects of this protein are beneficial in autoimmune diseases and cancer. For instance, SOCS1 degrades IRS1 and IRS2, required for insulin signaling, via the SOCS Box domain, thus, limiting its potential in ...
