@bratati The study is believed to be the first comprehensive overview of the available evidence from all published meta-analyses on the relationship between well-defined amounts of animal-origin foods and the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Follow-up/monitoring of breast implants
Are breast implants lifetime? Does they need follow up and monitoring?
Wider Use of CGM May Benefit People With Type 2 Diabetes
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) can benefit a much broader group of patients with type 2 diabetes than those for whom it is currently recommended, and who have access to it, new research suggests. The data come from two studies, both published online June 2 in JAMA. One study, a randomized clinical trial, showed that CGM use resulted in significantly improved A1c at 8 months among adults with type 2 diabetes taking long-acting insulin alone without premeal insulin. The study will also be presented during the virtual 14th International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes.
RE: New Tool May Pinpoint Individual ALS Prognosis
@udipta There is no cure for ALS. Survival rates can vary widely from several months to a decade or longer. Finding no sufficiently powered prediction tool based on individual risk, lead author Westeneng and colleagues identified 16 clinical, cognitive, and genetic prognostic factors from individual reports in the literature. Data collection ran from 1992 to 2016 at 14 specialized ALS centers. Median follow-up was slightly longer than 8 years. The primary outcome was the time between ALS symptom onset and the composite endpoint. Next, they performed backward elimination in the largest dataset with 1936 patients to select the most appropriate factors for the prediction model. They validated each selection through a series of bootstrap analyses.
Cardiac Issues After COVID Infection and Vaccination: New Data
New data from two different sources on cardiac complications linked to COVID-19 have shown that such issues are low overall, but are higher after infection than after vaccination. The new information comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet), and from a separate large international clinical study published online in Circulation on April 11
Study of Cryotherapy for COVID-19 Anosmia Fails the Sniff Test
The authors of a study suggesting that a deep freeze might help reverse one of the curious complications of COVID-19 have put their paper on ice after determining that they lacked adequate ethics approval for the research. The randomized study looked at the effect of cryotherapy in 45 people whose sense of smell had been disrupted by COVID. Two-thirds received either high- or low-dose cryotherapy – which Legrand's team defined as exposure to extremely low temperatures (−60°C to −110°C) in a double Cryoair chamber (MECOTEC, Pforzheim, Germany) for 3 min – while a third were assigned to a control group.
Is Mild Cognitive Impairment Reversible?
A high level of education, superior academic performance and excellent written language skills may predict the reversal of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to normal cognitive function, new research shows. Investigators found individuals with these factors, which are all markers of cognitive reserve, had a significantly greater chance of reversion from MCI to normal cognition (NC) than progression from MCI to dementia.
RE: I have been diagnosed with rotator cuff injury by my orthopedician. What treatment options do I have ?
@senjuti In the acute phase of injury, pain management is initially required before rehabilitation. Sleeping with a pillow under the trunk and arm is often recommended to decrease tension in supraspinatus tendon. Injectable steroids are also prescribed as found suitable by the treating doctors. During recovery phase, pain free strengthening within range of motion and proprioception training is done. For partial or full thickness, surgical options are also available.
Is there any treatment option for cataract other than surgery?
Hello, my mother has been diagnosed with hyper mature cataract. Is there any treatment option for cataract other than surgery? She is scared of any sort of invasive procedures. Please provide your suggestions. Thanks.
RE: Brachial neuritis- what are the treatment options?
@aishee The sharp, searing, and/or shooting pains of brachial neuritis can be intense and disabling, especially for the first few hours or days. Most cases of brachial neuritis require some type of treatment to help manage the initial pain levels, such as one or more of the following:
Pain medications. Prescription-strength medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), opioids, or nerve pain medications (pregabalin, gabapentin) may be recommended on a short-term basis for severe pain. Long-term use of prescription pain medication is usually not advised due to the potential for serious side effects.
Ice or heat therapy. Applying ice initially may help reduce inflammation, while applying heat later in the process may help facilitate blood flow to the painful area and loosen stiff muscles. Some people find more pain relief with ice while others prefer heat. When applying ice or heat therapy, care must be taken to check the skin regularly to avoid skin damage due to the temperature becoming too hot or too cold.
