Just saw an 11 year old boy living with aunts and relatives in one house. When mother goes to work at 6pm ( after he has had dinner), he continues to overeat and his aunts and grandparents continue to feed him. He is 90 pounds overweight, his cholesterol and triglycerides are abnormal. His fasting blood sugar is elevated and he is begining to show signs of diabetes. He already has fat deposits around his liver due to insulin resistance and overweight.
A hour was spent explaining to mom, that even if he gets mad and throws a temper tantrum when not fed additional food, he can not have second and third helpings after mom has gone to work.
He managed to lose one pound in three weeks from his last visit and I hope he continues to lose weight, since catching the problem early at this age, is reversible.
My two patients age 15 and 13 who are overweight reported today that since mom and dad are separated, dad takes them out to the Chinese buffet. At buffets, portion control is especially difficult. Yet, I’m proud to report that each child lost at least two pounds in the last month, despite the buffet. This shows that even one day a week of excess, can still result in weight loss
No weight plan is perfect, and we must allow for slight indulgences, however, they should be treats and not everyday occurences.
I will report further when they come back for month two of weight and nutritional rehab.
Certain Milk products promote insulin resistance ( and diabetes) . The milk sugar lactose acts like a soft drink and can spike insulin levels and contribute to prediabetes
Studies at Harvard’s school of public health found that children who drink three servings of milk a day ( even skim or 1%) were more prone to overweight than those who drank fewer servings a day. Possibly this was due to the higher relative content of lactose lower fat milk
Dairy creates acne – Those who drink more milk as teenagers had higher rates of severe teenage acne than those who rank less according to a Nurses Health study. Besides lactose, researchers surmise the presence of hormones in milk might have been the cause.
Cows milk may be responsible for eliciting autoimmune response that leads to diabetes in children. Bovine serum albumin may lead to the destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas.
Currently, a gluten free diet is the only way to manage celiac disease. But new drugs in clinical trials with humans, as well as more in the pre-clinical phase, may one day allow people with the disorder to enjoy gluten again.
These options are still years from commercial availability, but early results have been encouraging, according to a review of the drug pipeline in Gastroenterology Report.
“Based on data on ClinicalTrials.gov, there are two investigational products we are aware of which may enter large confirmatory trials in the not too distant future,” said lead author Dr. Klaus Gottlieb, senior medical director of the immunology and internal medicine department for Quintiles, a company that provides bio-pharmaceutical development services and consulting in Durham, North Carolina.
One of them is an enzyme that splits the molecule in wheat that causes celiac disease, gluten, into smaller harmless products and another one promises to make the gut less leaky and thus prevent potentially toxic substances (from) reaching deeper layers where they may cause inflammation,
For one potential oral therapy, patients take a mixture of two enzymes that split the gluten molecule into smaller harmless products. In a trial of adults with celiac disease, those taking this drug had no change in their intestinal biopsies after eating gluten, while those taking a placebo did have evidence of injury to the intestinal lining.
Hoping for good news he goes to meet with a fortune teller.
The fortune teller closes her eyes, makes some strange sounds, and finally says, “You will meet a beautiful young girl that will want to know everything about you”
The frog gets excited and says, “Wow! When will I meet her? At a party?”
“No,” replied the fortune teller, “in her biology class.”
A man goes to the police station wanting to speak to the burglar who broke into his house the night before.
“You’ll get your chance in court” says the desk sergeant.
“No, no, no!” Says the man. “I want to know how he got into the house without waking my wife. I’ve been trying to do that for years!”
