@torsha There is an enormous unmet need for evidence-based strategies for preventing addiction-related suicide, since people with substance use disorders have a 10-fold increased risk of suicide. Based upon these new study findings, the Preventing Addiction Related Suicide (PARS) program can now be considered the first such evidence-based intervention for this extremely high-risk population, Dr. Ries said at the virtual annual meeting of the American Association of Suicidology.

RE: CV Risk Biomarkers Tentatively Identified in Psoriatic Disease
@minti Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are both associated with greater risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, partly because of systemic inflammation that leads to atherogenesis. Measures of cardiovascular risk such as the FRS rely on traditional measures of cardiovascular risk and thus are likely to underestimate the cardiovascular event risk of people with psoriatic disease
RE: Atopic Dermatitis in Adults Tough Nut to Crack
@minti Sleep disturbance in adults with severe atopic dermatitis is pervasive, he added, with those who suffer about 11 flares per year also having to cope with an average of 192 nights of sleep disruption. Other common atopic dermatitis comorbidities such as depression, cardiovascular disease, and obesity can also be intricately tied to lost sleep
RE: Early, Subtle, Cardiac Changes Tied to Midlife Cognitive Decline!!
@debanjali Echocardiography is a widely available, relatively inexpensive, and non-invasive imaging method that could be integrated into a risk assessment for cognitive impairment. Looking ahead, the investigators note there is a need for further research to determine whether interventions to improve cardiac structure and diastolic function could also benefit brain health.
Can milk cause indigestion?

RE: Polymorphic light eruption- how to treat?
@debmalya Treatment of polymorphous light eruption usually isn't necessary because the rash typically goes away on its own within 10 days. If your symptoms are severe, your doctor may prescribe anti-itch medicine (a corticosteroid cream or pill). Treatment is also available to help prevent a rash. Your doctor may suggest phototherapy to prevent seasonal episodes of polymorphous light eruption in people who have experienced disabling signs and symptoms. Phototherapy exposes your skin to small doses of UVA or UVB light, which helps your skin be less sensitive to light. Basically, it's a controlled version of the increased exposure you would experience over the course of the summer. One type of light therapy called psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) combines UVA with a medicine called psoralen, which makes the skin more sensitive to this light. Short-term side effects of this therapy may include nausea, headache and itching.
