In my blog of January 21, 2009, I cited an article, “Hyperglycemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes
.” The authors of the research reported that the pregnant women with a “normal” fasting blood glucose level and glucose tolerance test result did not prevent them from having an abnormal course of pregnancy and/or a newborn with medical problems.
While we agree that a positive link between diabetes… Continue

Quote: "We're not talking about 40,000 or 50,000 people. We're talking about hundreds of thousands of injections
" BOTOX vials come with enough product to treat 2 to 5 people or more, however the vial is only sterile for ONE use. The problem stems from the fact that medical professionals administering the drug cannot charge as much as the vial cost them. The result is that they feel… Continue

Also, while we have linked… Continue

An important objective of Healthy People 2010 was to eliminate health disparities among racial/ethnic populations. As of 2007, no state had met the objective to reduce to 15% the prevalence of obesity among U.S. adults. Obesity is associated with increased health-care cost, reduced quality of life, and increased risk for premature death. Common mobidities associated with obesity include coronary heart disease, hypertension and stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. To assess… Continue

Doctors and associations come to initiate legal proceedings to prohibit the use of the four currently licensed vaccines against influenza A/H1N1 in the USA. According to their attorney James S. Turner, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration the U.S. government agency responsible for regulation and assessment of everything related to… Continue

Continuing from The Therapeutic Paradigm For Preventing And Managing Diabetes Mellitus (1)
Finally, we developed a noble idea of controlling the blood glucose supply from the small intestine. The chemicals, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, prevent some of the enzymes, which are produced by the pancreas, from converting or splitting polysaccharides (sugars with more than two… Continue

Vienna, 20. October 2009: AFFiRiS AG today announced that the primary endpoints have been met for the Phase I clinical studies of its two Alzheimer's vaccines AD01 and AD02, which demonstrated favourable safety and tolerability profiles. These results trigger a 10 million EUR milestone payment from licensee GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals.

Reducing carbohydrate consumption to control high blood glucose in people with diabetes reduces the risk for macrovascular and microvascular complications, according to Richard Feinman, PhD, from the Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. In an open discussion with other experts on diabetes and diet, he added that the science is not controversial but policy regarding dietary control in diabetes is. Speaking at a symposium… Continue

I am glad that a recent article independently concurs part of the conclusion I drew in my literature review. That concerns the potential damages to the body by repeated postprandial hyperglycemia (high blood sugar level after meal.) The one by Koichi Node and Teruo Inoue, “Postprandial hyperglycemia as an etiological factor in vascular failure.” Cardiovascular Diabetology 2009, 8:23doi:10.1186/1475-2840-8-23… Continue

Every time when I asked my patients and friends to be vigilant on carbohydrate consumption, most of them would proclaim that they were not diabetic, because they had a normal reading of fast blood sugar (or glucose) test or glucose tolerance test, or both. They thought that they were healthy. But they might not!
Diagnosis with diabetes mellitus (DM) is made only when either the patient’s fasting blood glucose (FBG) is 126 mg% and over or his two-hour glucose tolerance test (GTT),… Continue

With this new information come some interesting if not a profound discovery of two proteins that have consistently appeared with every mutated cell of H.I.V.. Now the war is a foot. Also I believe that a sodium based delivery system will be the answer to the problem of complete iratication of this horrible disease.

Race is a important factor in epidemiological and genomic research. There is debate about whether race is fundamentally a social or biological construct, and how it should be used in biomedical and genomic research (Hatch,Anthony 2006). In this paper I discuss how race ragardless of socioeonomic and environmental factors are used to report the prevalence of the Metabolic Syndrome.

In our lifetime, we all have often encountered epidemics, from a common seasonal influenza, toxic contamination to the much serious viral and bacterial infections. In cases of viral and bacterial infections, the public health agencies and epidemiologists would be busy to identify the strain of each offending organism and seek the effective vaccine(s) for preventing the public from a major disaster. Because of various reasons… Continue
