@malti-t Antiquated ideas about who develops EDs, held by the general public and clinicians alike may perpetuate inequities in treatment. Research conducted in clinical samples may further perpetuate myths and stereotypes because of systematic differences between people who do, and do not, seek treatment.

This study adds novel information about the dynamic change in the cognition of COVID-19 survivors, Wang told Medscape Medical News. Of note, say the researchers, is the fact that 21% of people with severe COVID-19 had progressive cognitive decline, suggesting that COVID-19 may cause long-lasting damage to cognition.
Benefits Limited for Early Gestational Diabetes Screening
Screening pregnant women with obesity for gestational diabetes before 20 weeks of pregnancy did not lead to any improved maternal or neonatal outcomes compared with doing routine screening between 24 and 28 weeks, according to research presented at the Pregnancy Meeting sponsored by the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine. There is increasing evidence that early screening does not reduce the risk of adverse perinatal outcomes. The increasing number of studies that have demonstrated no benefit in reducing adverse perinatal outcomes leads to consideration to revise recommendations for early screening.

@amitesh Breathe deeply to relax at the moment. Slowly inhale through your nose for a count of 5, feeling your stomach expand. Then, exhale slowly to a count of 5, letting your stomach deflate. Repeat for 5 breaths or until you start to feel relaxed. If you can, close your eyes while you breathe deeply.

RE: Is antacid good for treating heart burn?
@piya Antacids neutralize stomach acid to cut down on heartburn, sour stomach, acid indigestion, and stomach upset. Some antacids also contain simethicone, an ingredient that helps your body get rid of gas. Some antacids contain ingredients that can cause diarrhea, such as magnesium, or constipation, such as aluminum.
Examples of antacids include:
Aluminum hydroxide gel (Alternagel, Amphojel)
Calcium carbonate (Alka-Seltzer, Tums)
Magnesium hydroxide (Milk of Magnesia)
Gaviscon, Gelusil, Maalox, Mylanta, Rolaids
You should take antacids exactly as directed by your doctor or according to the package label. If you use the tablets, chew them well before swallowing for faster relief.
