Handwritten Video Lecture on the Pathophysiology, Symptoms and Management of Diabetic Nephropathy for the USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step 2 PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY Damage begins with dilation of the afferent dilation in the glomerulus. This is due to Advanced Glycosylated Enzymes (AGE). These AGE forms crosslinks in the collagen which increaes permeability of the glomerulus. This is one of the main factors leading to diabetic nephropathy. Protien Kinase C is increased due to increase in Diacyl Glycerol which increase vascular permeability. Efferent Constriction also occurs in Diabetic Nephropathy due to direct activation of Renin by glucose by an unknown mechanism. This eventually leads to intraglomerular hyperfiltration and eventual hyperfiltration or high GFR. This will eventually leads to glomerulosclerosis (Hyaline). Hyaline deposits in afferent and efferent which leads to diabetic nephropathy. Mesangium is also affected in diabetic nephropathy. Cytokines are released due to elevated glucose leading to formation of nodule in mesangium known as kimmelstiehl wilson nodule. SYMPTOM OF DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY Diabetes mellitus type 1 is more severe than Diabetes Mellitus Type 2. Moderate albuminuria is defined as albuminura between 30 to 300mg of albumin in urine. This is a mild form of diabetic nephropathy. Moderate albuminuria is when there is more than 300mg of albumin in urine. These patient will lead to End Stage Renal Disease in Diabetic Nephropathy. RISK FACTORS OF DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY Family history of diabetic nephropathy. Poor glycemic control, hypertension, smoking, certain races, Diabetic Retinopathy usually occurs before diabetic nephropathy. TREATMENT OF DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY First line treatment is good glycemic control. ACE inhibitors should be given at first sign of albuminuria or if there is concurrent hypertension. Protein restriction also can help manage Diabetic Nephropathy. Finally BP Control, and weight loss is also helpful in controlling progression of Diabetic Nephropathy

Please watch: "(905) Mitochondria: Central Role in Aging 2018 (and how to reverse it)( warning - geeky)- FORD BREWER " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTKM0Lh078A --~-- Join the PrevMed Community: https://mailchi.mp/1224fb9e00e7/prevmed_community FORD BREWER MD MPH . PrevMedHeartRisk.com Diabetic Neuropathy has been associated with multiple metabolic pathways. Some of these show genetic variation which may impact ranges of susceptibility. MTHFR, AKR1B1, APOE, NOS3, and VEGF all are genetic variations impacting susceptibility. Common denominators to these pathways include the vasa nervosum. Vasa means blood vessels. Nervosum means supporting the nerves. So, the problem focus area seems to focus on small, micro-vessels supporting the nerves. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

A client with hypertension has been recently discharged from the hospital due to Hyperlipidemia. Before admission, he takes Accupril (Quinapril) as his maintenance medication. After discharge he has instructions to continue taking his maintenance medication together with his discharge medications, as the nurse case manager reviews the discharge medications which if the following needs the attention of the cardiologist? A. Fish Oil supplements B. Potassium Chloride (K-Lor) C. Atorvastatin (Lipitor) D. Clopidogrel (Plavix) The answer to this question shows just how important the “discharge instruction” process is. The discharge med reconciliation done by the discharging doctor should have picked up on this, but didn’t. Never underestimate your role as the patient’s nurse, you are not “less important” than the doctor! You must always be ready to think “CRITICALLY”! As your patient’s nurse, you are usually the one that pulls all the information together for your patient. Often, your patients are overwhelmed with all the “do’s and don’ts” from the different members of the interdisciplinary team that took care of him for the last few days. And frequently their doctor is rushed and cannot spend enough time with him to get all his questions answered. Remember, you are also your “patient’s advocate, not just his nurse!” Answer B in this case is correct. Potassium should not be used in clients using ACE Inhibitors because it may significantly increase potassium levels in the blood and could cause further hyperkalemia. You should alert his doctor to see if there needs to be a change in his home med list.

You need to refer to your own medical director, teachers and protocols for specific treatment information. It is your responsibility to know how best to treat your patient in your jurisdiction. The nurse in the medical –surgical ward is taking care of a diabetic client who is scheduled for a thyroidectomy the following day. The client is taking Metformin as a maintenance drug, the nurse knows that this medication should be withheld during which of the following events? Select all that apply: A. Diet is resumed B. 48 hours after contrast material has been introduced C . Day of surgery D. Day of receiving contrast material E. While on NPO F. Hypoxic states So lets go though these answer options one by one. In option A. Diet is resumed. Well if your patient is eating then they definitely would need the medication. So this option would not be correct. Option B. 48 hours after contrast therapy. When patients are taking oral hypoglycemic medications, they need to stop taking medications like metformin because this medication in addition to the contrast can cause serious damage to the kidneys. However, the medication needs to be withheld for only 48 hours and this option indicated just that. Showing that it is now safe for the patient to start taking the medication again… which makes this option also wrong. In option C. The day of surgery. When your patient is NPO which is a medical abbreviation for nothing by mouth. Then you do not want to give oral hypoglycemics because they can cause a drop in the patients blood sugar levels. Making this answer option correct because you would indeed want to withhold the medication. In option D. The day of receiving contrast material - remember in option D. we discussed how it is important to know that your patient must wait 48 hours before they take this medication after receiving contrast. So this answer option would be wrong and therefore a correct option. In option E. While NPO. Like we discussed in option C (day of surgery) we do not want to take this medication on an empty stomach. This medication is always given with food so that it can help the cells absorb insulin, helping your body not have to work so hard to create it. And finally: Option F. Hypoxic States - In order to answer this question, you have to know what hypoxia means - the definition of hypoxia is when your body is not receiving enough oxygen. If your patient is not receiving enough oxygen, then they are most likely not in any state to eat; Remember back to the ABC’s which if you have not heard of this yet… then you will hear about this in nursing school: ABC’s Means Airway, Breathing and circulation…. when these are affected, these are the priorities and everything else can wait…. especially a metformine tablet.

NCLEX Question: Ace Inhibitors & Alcohol

QUESTIONS NUMBER 4: The hypertensive client taking Accupril (Quinapril) asks the nurse if he can still drink alcohol while taking this medication, the nurse appropriately responds with which of the following medications? A. “You should limit your alcohol intake to 24 oz per day.” B. “Limitations in alcohol consumption depends with your average blood pressure reading.” C. “You should avoid drinking alcohol when on this medication because it can increase the side effect of the medication causing further decreases in your blood pressure.” D. “As long as you are able to bring your blood pressures up after lying down with your legs elevated with two pillows, you can drink as much as 8 oz per day.” This is a great example of the type of question that you, the nurse, might get from your patient. He may have been too embarrassed and reluctant to ask his doctor this question. You will discover, if you haven’t already, that “you”, the “nurse”, represent a picture of trustworthiness to your patients. Always, seek proof of the information, though, that you are giving to your patient by researching as necessary. Become familiar with the tools at your fingertips, for instance, use the “lexicomp” tab on you pyxis machine when researching a drug if you have it! When you look up the actions and side effects of a drug to explain to your patient, it’s a good idea to print it out for him if you have that capability and leave the copy with him. Never, never feel bad about having to “look up” a drug. It is impossible to mentally store information on all the drugs that you will administer. AND never give a medication that you know nothing about!!! In this question, answer C is correct. Explain to him that alcoholic drinks should be avoided when on ACE inhibitors because it can increase the potency of the drug and could cause further decrease in blood pressure. This is a teachable moment and you could also bring out other pointers like… Do not use salt substitutes or potassium supplements while taking quinapril, unless your doctor has told you to. And to avoid getting up too fast from a sitting or lying position, or he may feel light headed and dizzy. You can include this in your “fall prevention” education also!

Ejection Fraction: Normal Range, Low, and Treatment
 
09:09
Ejection Fraction: Normal Range, Low, and Treatment What is ejection fraction? As your heart beats, it pumps blood out into your body with two lower muscular chambers. These chambers are called the left and right ventricles. It takes more than a single contraction to pump all of the blood out of your heart. Ejection fraction (EF) is a measurement doctors use to calculate the percentage of blood flowing out of these ventricles with each contraction. How is EF measured? Generally, your left ventricle is the one measured for EF. It does the heavy lifting in your body, pumping blood to almost all your major organs. However, current research suggests that the right ventricle shouldn’t be ignored when determining EF. An accurate left ventricle EF (LVEF) reading can be measured through a variety of imaging techniques. The most common EF testing measures are: Echocardiogram. An echocardiogram uses sound waves to take images of your heart. Current research suggests that 3-D images provide the best and most accurate readings. Cardiac magnetic resonance imagining (C-MRI). A C-MRI is an image-based test that uses a magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to create detailed images of the inside of your heart. Cardiac catheterization. In this procedure, your doctor inserts a hollow tube into a large blood vessel to monitor heart function. During the catheterization, a coronary angiography is also performed. A dye is injected into the catheter. Then an X-ray monitors the blood flowing throughout your heart. Cardiac nuclear medicine scan. Trace amounts of radioactive materials are injected into your bloodstream. They’re then detected by cameras that produce images of your heart and its mechanisms. Cardiac CT scan. This X-ray procedure is fast and usually used when other tests are inconclusive. What do EF results mean? A normal LVEF reading for adults over 20 years of age is 53 to 73 percent. An LVEF of below 53 percent for women and 52 percent for men is considered low. An RVEF of less than 45 percent is considered a potential indicator of heart issues. Two common issues include: HFrEF (systolic dysfunction). This is heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction. This occurs when one of your heart’s four chambers can’t contract properly. Symptoms might include shortness of breath, exhaustion, or heart palpitations. HFpEF (diastolic dysfunction). This is heart failure with a preserved, or normal, ejection fraction. This occurs when your ventricles don’t relax. This makes less blood flow from your heart and into your body. Symptoms for HFpEF often include shortness of breath during exercise or exertion and fatigue. HFpEF can be the result of aging, diabetes, or hypertension. Causes of low EF As we age, our hearts do too. Heart walls thicken and lose some of their capacity to contract and relax as the years go on. But, a low EF reading can also indicate some form of heart damage, including: Cardiomyopathy. This condition thickens your heart tissues. Heart attack. This occurs when your heart muscle’s damaged when one or more of your arteries become blocked. Coronary artery disease. This condition narrows or blocks your heart’s left and right arteries, making blood flow to the heart very difficult. Systolic heart failure. This occurs when your left ventricle cannot pump enough blood to your body. Heart valve disease. This occurs when your heart’s valves can’t open and close properly and blood can’t flow into your heart normally. Causes of high EF A high EF reading can indicate a heart condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC). This condition abnormally thickens parts of your heart muscle without an obvious cause. HC is often genetic. It’s tough to diagnose because many people can live a symptom-free life. For a small number of people, HC can cause serious abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) that require treatment. If you have a family history of HC, let your doctor know so they can monitor you over time. What are the treatment options for abnormal EF? There are a variety of treatment options for abnormal EF, including: Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), or beta-blockers. These medications can reduce the amount of hormones that weaken your heart muscle. They can also slow the progression of heart disease. Diuretics. These drugs can help get rid of excess fluid that’s causing swelling and shortness of breath. Eplerenone or spironolactone. These agents help you eliminate excess fluid and can help decrease stiffening of your heart. Biventricular pacemaker. This pacemaker helps to synchronize the contractions of your left and right ventricles so they’re working to their highest capacity. Implantable cardiac defibrillator. This device can be directly implanted into your chest. It sends small electrical triggers to your heart to keep it beating regularly.

Blood Pressure Readings Explained
 
10:20
Blood Pressure Readings Explained What do the numbers mean? Everyone would like to have healthy blood pressure. But what exactly does that mean? When your doctor takes your blood pressure, it’s expressed as a measurement with two numbers, with one number on top (systolic) and one on the bottom (diastolic), like a fraction. For example, 120/80 mm Hg. The top number refers to the amount of pressure in your arteries during the contraction of your heart muscle. This is called systolic pressure. The bottom number refers to your blood pressure when your heart muscle is between beats. This is called diastolic pressure. Both numbers are important in determining the state of your heart health. Numbers greater than the ideal range indicate that your heart is working too hard to pump blood to the rest of your body. What’s a normal reading? For a normal reading, your blood pressure needs to show a top number (systolic pressure) that’s between 90 and less than 120 and a bottom number (diastolic pressure) that’s between 60 and less than 80. The American Heart Association (AHA) considers blood pressure to be within the normal range when both your systolic and diastolic numbers are in these ranges. Blood pressure readings are expressed in millimeters of mercury. This unit is abbreviated as mm Hg. A normal reading would be any blood pressure below 120/80 mm Hg and above 90/60 mm Hg in an adult. If you’re in the normal range, no medical intervention is needed. However, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle and healthy weight to help prevent hypertension from developing. Regular exercise and healthy eating can also help. You may need to be even more mindful of your lifestyle if hypertension runs in your family. Elevated blood pressure Numbers higher than 120/80 mm Hg are a red flag that you need to take on heart-healthy habits. When your systolic pressure is between 120 and 129 mm Hg and your diastolic pressure is less than 80 mm Hg, it means you have elevated blood pressure. Although these numbers aren’t technically considered high blood pressure, you’ve moved out of the normal range. Elevated blood pressure has a good chance of turning into actual high blood pressure, which puts you at an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. No medications are necessary for elevated blood pressure. But this is when you should adopt healthier lifestyle choices. A balanced diet and regular exercise can help lower your blood pressure to a healthy range and help prevent elevated blood pressure from developing into full-fledged hypertension. Hypertension: Stage 1 You’ll generally be diagnosed with high blood pressure if your systolic blood pressure reaches between 130 and 139 mm Hg, or if your diastolic blood pressure reaches between 80 and 89 mm Hg. This is considered stage 1 hypertension. However, the AHA notes that if you get only one reading this high, you may not truly have high blood pressure. What determines the diagnosis of hypertension at any stage is the average of your numbers over a period of time. Your doctor can help you measure and track your blood pressure to confirm whether it’s too high. You may need to start taking medications if your blood pressure doesn’t improve after one month of following a healthy lifestyle, especially if you’re already at high risk for heart disease. Those at lower risk may be followed up in three to six months after adopting more healthy habits. If you’re 65 years or older and otherwise healthy, your doctor will likely recommend treatment and lifestyle changes once your systolic blood pressure is greater than 130 mm Hg. The treatment for adults 65 and older who have significant health problems should be made on a case-by-case basis. Treating high blood pressure in older adults appears to decrease memory problems and dementia. Hypertension: Stage 2 Stage 2 high blood pressure indicates an even more serious condition. If your blood pressure reading shows a top number of 140 or more, or a bottom number of 90 or more, it’s considered stage 2 hypertension. At this stage, your doctor will recommend one or more medications for keeping your blood pressure under control. But you shouldn’t rely solely on medications to treat hypertension. Lifestyle habits are just as important in stage 2 as they are in the other stages. Some medications that can complement a healthy lifestyle include: ACE inhibitors to block substances that tighten blood vessels alpha-blockers used for relaxing arteries beta-blockers to decrease heart rate and block substances that tighten blood vessels calcium channel blockers to relax blood vessels and decrease the work of the heart diuretics to decrease the amount of fluid in your body, including your blood vessels.

Please watch: "(905) Mitochondria: Central Role in Aging 2018 (and how to reverse it)( warning - geeky)- FORD BREWER " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTKM0Lh078A --~-- Join the PrevMed Community: https://mailchi.mp/1224fb9e00e7/prevmed_community Heart attack and stroke have many causes and risk factors, ranging from lifestyle, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, inflammation, dental infections, stress, etc. Which of these is the real cause? Maybe it's a common factor, like the mitochondria and cellular respiration. The reality is that we do not know. Cellular respiration and the mitochondria theory can be helpful in terms of both research questions and lifestyle, treatment issues. The functional item is what comes of the knowledge. What can we do to prevent or reverse early disease? For example, we know that there are many things we can do to decrease disease: a proper diet, exercise, and specific medications when indicated. There are a couple of examples: ACE inhibitibors and insulin resistance. We know that ACE inhibitors and ARBs improve insulin resistance. ACE inhibitors improve inflammation as well, so we recommend those when the patient tolerates them. Beta blockers have been shown to improve life expectancy post cardiovascular event. But one thing we often don't think about is the fact that so much cardiovascular risk is driven by insulin resistance ( est 70%). If that's the case, should we consider beta blockers that have a positive impact on diabetes? I think so. But this is often ignored in the hurried medical practice. If you're on Toprol or metoprolol and have cardiovascular risk and diabetes, consider carvedilol or Coreg. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins.

Will I Have To Go On Dialysis Because Of Prediabetes?
 
07:51
Get our diabetes management guide here https://goo.gl/2ABeBD Let me state up front that the chances of someone with prediabetes needing dialysis is highly unlikely. I have found no cases in my research. However, one of the main complications of diabetes is kidney disease. The good folk at the National Kidney Foundation have a lot to say about diabetes and kidney disease and I relied on their website almost exclusively for research material for this video. With diabetes, the small blood vessels in the body are injured. When the blood vessels in the kidneys are injured, your kidneys cannot clean your blood properly. Your body will retain more water and salt than it should, which can result in weight gain and ankle swelling. You may have protein in your urine. Also, waste materials will build up in your blood. Diabetes also may cause damage to nerves in your body. This can cause difficulty in emptying your bladder. The pressure resulting from your full bladder can back up and injure the kidneys. Also, if urine remains in your bladder for a long time, you can develop an infection from the rapid growth of bacteria in urine that has a high sugar level. About 30 percent of patients with Type 1 (juvenile onset) diabetes and 10 to 40 percent of those with Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes eventually will suffer from kidney failure. To date, there is not enough data to even begin to suggest that those with prediabetes will have kidney failure. The earliest sign of diabetic kidney disease is an increased excretion of albumin in the urine. This is present long before the usual tests done in your doctor's office show evidence of kidney disease, so it is important for you to have this test on a yearly basis. Weight gain and ankle swelling may occur. You will use the bathroom more at night. Your blood pressure may get too high. As a person with diabetes, you should have your blood, urine and blood pressure checked at least once a year. This will lead to better control of your disease and early treatment of high blood pressure and kidney disease. Maintaining control of your diabetes can lower your risk of developing severe kidney disease. As your kidneys fail, your blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels will rise as well as the level of creatinine in your blood. You may also experience nausea, vomiting, a loss of appetite, weakness, increasing fatigue, itching, muscle cramps (especially in your legs) and anemia (a low blood count). You may find you need less insulin. This is because diseased kidneys cause less breakdown of insulin. If you develop any of these signs, call your doctor. Signs of Kidney Disease in Patients with Diabetes Albumin/protein in the urine High blood pressure Ankle and leg swelling, leg cramps Going to the bathroom more often at night High levels of BUN and creatinine in blood Less need for insulin or antidiabetic medications Morning sickness, nausea and vomiting Weakness, paleness and anemia Itching What will happen if my kidneys have been damaged? First, the doctor needs to find out if your diabetes has caused the injury. Other diseases can cause kidney damage. Your kidneys will work better and last longer if you: Control your diabetes Control high blood pressure Get treatment for urinary tract infections Correct any problems in your urinary system Avoid any medicines that may damage the kidneys (especially over-the-counter pain medications) If no other problems are found, your doctor will try to keep your kidneys working as long as possible. The use of high blood pressure medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors has been shown to help slow the loss of kidney function. The kidney doctor, called a nephrologist, will plan your treatment with you, your family and your dietitian. Two things to keep in mind for keeping your kidneys healthy are controlling high blood pressure in conjunction with an ACE inhibitor and following your renal diabetic diet. Restricting protein in your diet also might be helpful. You and your dietitian can plan your diet together. End stage renal failure, or kidney failure, occurs when your kidneys are no longer able to support you in a reasonably healthy state, and dialysis or transplantation is needed. This happens when your kidneys function at only 10 to 15 percent.

Diabetic Nephropathy Stages - Causes - Signs and Symptoms - Treatments
 
05:05
Diabetic Nephropathy Stages - Causes - Signs and Symptoms - Treatments Early treatment can delay or prevent the onset of diabetic nephropathy. As the early stages can often show no symptoms, people with diabetes should be screened for kidney complications yearly. Screening involves a simple urine test to see whether proteins are present in the urine. However, the presence of proteins does not necessarily mean a person has kidney disease, as they can also be due to a urinary tract infection. The primary purpose of treatment is to maintain and control blood glucose levels and blood pressure. Sometimes, this may involve the use of medication. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) have been shown to help lower blood pressure, as well as protect kidney function and prevent further damage. Some new diabetic medications, including sodium-glucose cotransporter inhibitors (SGLT-2 inhibitors) and glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 agonists, may also protect the kidneys. If diabetic nephropathy has developed to the final stage and ESRD then there are only two types of treatment available, kidney dialysis and kidney transplant. Diabetic nephropathy refers to kidney disease that occurs in people with diabetes. The kidneys help regulate the amount of fluids and salts in the body, which helps to control blood pressure and releases different types of hormones. Causes smoking age, as it is more common in older people sex, as it is more common in men race, as it is more common in African Americans and Mexican Americans obesity Stages Severe illness usually occurs around stage four or five of diabetic nephropathy. Symptoms include: swollen ankles, feet, lower legs, or hands caused by water retention darker urine, due to blood in the urine shortness of breath fatigue, caused by lack of oxygen in the blood nausea or vomiting metallic taste Treatments Early treatment can delay or prevent the onset of diabetic nephropathy.

What REALLY Causes High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)?
 
03:53
Give Dr. Berg a Review: http://bit.ly/DrBergReviewGoogle VIDEOS ON INSULIN RESISTANCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxl8h... Dr. Berg talks about the link between high blood pressure and insulin resistance. Insulin resistances, which is high insulin stiffens your arteries, disrupts the endothelial layer of your arteries, which start the hardening of the arteries as well as the cascade effect of cholesterol and calcium to accumulate in the arteries. High insulin (insulin resistance) creates inflammation in the arteries. This condition also causes sodium retention and a loss of potassium because insulin is necessary to allow this mineral in the cell. Diuretics also have a side-effect of causing insulin resistance. The treatment of hypertension is mainly medications because we are told that there is no cure, only treatment. The pathophysiology is in reality a disruption of the artery wall creating vasoconstriction, stiffness and less elasticity. The additional symptom of hypertension is headaches and a risk for stroke and heart attack. The home remedies involve actions to lower insulin - cutting out sugar, adding vegetables to get your potassium and even apple cider vinegar can help.

Drugs (medication) that Raise Blood Sugar Levels
 
13:44
List of drugs that raise blood sugar. This information can come in handy in case you have high blood sugar and you are not sure what is causing it. Download Diabetes Diet eBook: https://goo.gl/UC5SZU We all get sick from time to time. We all have been given prescriptions other than our metformin or insulin. But did you know some medications can raise your blood sugar? I am confident that somewhere in that plethora of literature that accompanies most prescriptions is information that says that the drug will affect blood sugar. But how many of us actually read all that literature? Today I want to talk about common drugs that can raise your blood sugar. This list was compiled after researching the work of Mark T. Marino, MD. The list: Corticosteroids Thiazide diuretics Beta-blockers Niacin Antipsychotic drugs Striking a balance There is a longer list of drugs associated with diabetes, but the evidence for each of these is not very strong, or the medicine is only used rarely. For the more commonly used drugs that are known to worsen diabetes control, it is important to note that there remains a balance between intended benefits and unwanted side effects. Glucocorticoids can stop an inflammatory process like asthma, thiazide diuretics have been shown to be very successful at reducing high blood pressure and its complications, beta-blockers do protect against heart attacks, niacin does reduce coronary artery disease, and antipsychotic medicines can make the difference between hallucinating and perceiving reality. If you suspect that your blood glucose control may be adversely affected by a medicine you’re taking, speak with your health-care provider before making any changes. There may be an overall benefit to remaining on a drug that slightly increases blood glucose in some cases, or there may be alternatives that can be substituted. Unfortunately, no medicine is without its drawbacks, but by knowing what these drawbacks are, you can participate in an informed discussion with your health-care provider about the specific risks and benefits of a drug in your unique situation.

Hypertension - Definition, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment options
 
06:31
Hypertension - Definition, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment options In this week's video, I will be going over hypertension (high blood pressure), I will be talking about how to define hypertension, how hypertension is diagnosed, the causes of hypertension, the symptoms of hypertension and what are the certain treatment options for hypertension. Hypertension (AKA High blood pressure) is quite literally what it says on the tin, it's having the pressure in your blood vessels be too high. The normal range of blood pressure is 90-119 for systolic and 60-69 for diastolic. Hypertension can be divided into two groups, the majority of people fall into the first category, which is known as primary hypertension, this type doesn't have a cure and is a result of age and lifestyle choices. Most symptoms of hypertension do not manifest until, the pressure is very high, causing it to be known as the silent killer. When assessing a patient with newly diagnosed hypertension, you need to check that there is no damage to the organs mentioned above, 3 investigations that need to be done are funduscopic to check for any retinopathy, Urine dipstick to check for renal disease, ECG to check for left ventricular hypertrophy and Ischemic heart disease. HbA1c to check for diabetes as that is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease and check lipids for similar reasons. The first type of treatment of hypertension is lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, exercising, eating less salt, stopping smoking etc. In terms of the medications the main classes I will speak about are diuretics, ACE inhibitors, Angiotensin 2 receptor antagonists, calcium channel blockers Blood pressure is calculated as flow (that is the volume of fluid in your vessels) times resistance. So higher flow or higher resistance leads to a higher blood pressure, as a result, most blood pressure medications work to lower either flow or resistance and thus lower blood pressure. DIruretics increase salt and water excretion, so lower the fluid volume in the body. ACE inhibitors interfere with the renin-angiotensin, aldosterone system. they stop the formation of angiotensin 2 which is a vasoconstrictor. not only that but without angiotensin 2 there is less aldosterone which normally helps to retain sodium and water, so ACE inhibitors lower resistance and flow Angiotensin 2 receptor blockers, these work in a similar fashion to ACE I but rather than stop the formation of angiotensin 2, they block the receptors for angiotensin 2. Calcium channel blockers block channels in the smooth muscles of your blood vessels, calcium normally causes these vessels to contract, so if they are blocked, the vessels will relax and have lower resistance Treatment: Step 1 less than 55 give ACEi (or ARB if can tolerate ACE), over 55 or if black give CCB (or Diuretic if can't tolerate) Step 2 CCB + ACEi/ ARB (never use ACEi and ARB together ) Step 3 ACEi/ ARBS + CCB + diuretic Sources: http://bestpractice.bmj.com/best-practice/monograph/26/treatment/step-by-step.html Passmedicine Oxford handbook of clinical medicine nice.org.uk FOLLOW ME Twitter and Instagram: Medic_Ene Twitter: https://twitter.com/Medic_Ene Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/medic_ene/ MedicEne provides a fun and different view of medical problems among other things, hope you enjoy it!

However, if someone has a problem with insulin, potassium is even more deficient. Potassium is controlled by insulin. When there is insulin resistance, potassium becomes deficient. By spiking potassium in a pre-diabetic or a diabetic state, the need for insulin can reduce.

When Does Atherosclerosis Begin?
 
07:58
When Does Atherosclerosis Begin? What is atherosclerosis? Most people don’t experience the life-threatening complications of having atherosclerosis — hardening of the arteries — until they reach middle age. However, the beginning stages can actually start during childhood. The disease tends to be progressive and gets worse with time. Over time, plaque, which is made of fatty cells (cholesterol), calcium, and other waste products, builds up in a major artery. The artery becomes more and more narrow, which means blood is unable to get to areas it needs to reach. There is also a higher risk that if a blood clot breaks away from another area in the body, it could get stuck in the narrow artery and cut off blood supply completely, causing a heart attack or stroke. What causes it? Atherosclerosis is a complex condition, generally starting early in life and progressing as people get older. Studies have found that children as young as 10 to 14 can show the early stages of atherosclerosis. For some people, the disease advances quickly in their 20s and 30s, while others may not have issues until their 50s or 60s. Researchers aren’t exactly sure how or why it begins. It’s believed that plaque starts to build up in arteries after the lining becomes damaged. The most common contributors to this damage are high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and smoking cigarettes. What are the risks? Your arteries carry oxygenated blood to vital organs like your heart, brain, and kidneys. If the path becomes blocked, these parts of your body can’t function the way they’re supposed to. How your body is affected depends on which arteries are blocked. These are the diseases related to atherosclerosis: Heart disease. When plaque builds up in your coronary arteries (the large vessels that carry blood to your heart), you’re at increased risk for a heart attack. Carotid artery disease. When plaque builds up in the large vessels on either side of your neck (carotid arteries) that carry blood to your brain, you’re at higher risk of having a stroke. Peripheral artery disease. When plaque builds up in the large arteries that carry blood to your arms and legs, it can cause pain and numbness and can lead to serious infections. Kidney disease. When plaque builds up in the large arteries that carry blood to your kidneys, your kidneys can’t function properly. When they don’t function properly, they can’t remove waste from your body, leading to serious complications. How do you get tested? If you have symptoms, like a weak pulse near a major artery, lower blood pressure near an arm or leg, or signs of an aneurysm, your doctor may notice them during a regular physical exam. Results from a blood test can tell the doctor if you have high cholesterol. Other, more involved tests include: Imaging tests. An ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) allow doctors to see inside the arteries and tell how severe the blockages are. Ankle-brachial index. The blood pressure in your ankles is compared with your arm. If there is an unusual difference, it can point to peripheral artery disease. Stress test. Doctors can monitor your heart and breathing while you engage in physical activity, like riding on a stationary bike or briskly walking on a treadmill. Since exercise makes your heart work harder, it can help doctors discover a problem. Can it be treated? If atherosclerosis has progressed beyond what lifestyle changes can reduce, there are medications and surgical treatments available. These are designed to prevent the disease from getting worse and to increase your comfort, particularly if you’re having chest or leg pain as a symptom. Medications typically include drugs to treat high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Some examples are: statins beta-blockers angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors antiplatelets calcium channel blockers Surgery is considered a more aggressive treatment and is done if the blockage is life-threatening. A surgeon may go in and remove plaque from an artery or redirect blood flow around the blocked artery. What lifestyle changes can help? Healthy dietary changes, stopping smoking, and exercise can be powerful weapons against high blood pressure and high cholesterol, two major contributors to atherosclerosis. Exercise Physical activity helps you lose weight, maintain a normal blood pressure, and boosts your “good cholesterol” (HDL) levels. Aim for 30 to 60 minutes a day of moderate cardio. Diet Maintain a healthy weight by eating more fiber. You can achieve this goal, in part, by replacing white breads and pastas with foods made out of whole grains.

Here Is How To Reduce Hypertension or High Blood Pressure At Home!
 
04:54
Here Is How To Reduce Hypertension or High Blood Pressure At Home! The hypertension or high blood pressure can be caused by genetics, thyroid disorders, toxic body burden, smoking, unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle, chronic stress, weight and age. People usually have combination of these factors. It is important to remember that it is one of the ‘silent killers’. That is why it is important to do the periodic blood pressure tests. A healthy blood pressure is 120 over 80. The 1st number measures the heart beating pressure and the 2nd measures the pressure of the resting heart. As there are numerous factors that can cause hypertension, there are many problems that can happen if it is left untreated. Hypertension increases the blood flow resistance in the vessels and forces the heart to work harder. High blood pressure contributes to hardening of the arteries. It is also associated with sexual dysfunction, blindness, aneurysms, dementia, kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. To control it, you need to make some changes in your lifestyle, diet and other contributing factors. If the blood pressure is reduces by 5-6 pints, the risk of stroke is cut by 40% and heart disease by 15%. There are numerous effective medications like ACE inhibitors, diuretics and beta blockers, but they can produce some side effects like rapid heartbeat, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, respiratory problems, depression, leg cramps and insomnia. The high blood pressure is profitable market for the drug companies as it is a common and chronic disease. Once a person starts on these drugs, they take them often for the long term. Drugs aren’t the only choice. There are numerous ways that it can be controlled naturally. If you have hypertension and you’re on medication, you shouldn’t stop taking them without medical advice from the health care provider. -For those who try to control the blood pressure, it is recommended to address potential weight issues. It is important to increase the physical activity and consume anti-inflammatory foods like lean proteins, healthy fats and fresh fruits and vegetables. You need to lower the intake of sodium as the salt retains body fluids and increases the blood volume. Reduce the salty snack like salted nuts, crackers and chips and choose mineral-rich and natural salt like Himalayan and Celtic. Smoking and consuming alcohol also affects the cardiovascular health. They can put a lot of stress on the heart and lead to hypertension and arterial hardening. The body evolved many mechanisms to respond to dangers. One of them is a rapid heartbeat to increase the blood flow and it is accompanied by increased blood pressure. But the real problem is the chronic stress and the background anxiety has huge physiological impact. The cortisol and the other stress hormones stay elevated wearing down the defenses and fueling chronic inflammation. The results are increased risk of cardiovascular disease and hypertension and many degenerative diseases. Meditation is a proven way to reduce the chronic stress. Another way to relieve stress is long walks. -The diet is one of the most critical approaches to high blood pressure controlling. The DASH diet is a specific diet that can lower the blood pressure. It means Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It recommends whole grains, veggies and fruits. Also, part of this diet is the potassium-rich foods like bananas and green leafy veggies like kale and spinach. Reduce the trans fats and sugar because these foods fuel inflammation which can increase the risk of hypertension, damage heart health and harden the arteries. https://youtu.be/EQ9t3iPaj-0

http://www.herbscellnutrition.com/home/angirx-detorex-combo/ How To Treat Hypertension And Diabetes - How To Treat Hypertension And Diabetes Naturally? According to the ADA, the combination of hypertension and type 2 diabetes is particularly lethal and can significantly raise a person's risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Having type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure also increases your chances of developing other diabetes-related diseases, such as kidney disease, and retinopathy (eye blood vessels), which may cause blindness. Uncontrolled diabetes is not the only health factor that increases risk for high blood pressure. Remember, your chances of having a heart attack or stroke are raised exponentially if you have more than one of the following risk factors: Family History Of Heart Disease Stress High-fat, High-sodium Diet Sedentary Lifestyle Advanced Age Obesity Smoking Too Little Potassium Or Vitamin D Too Much Alcohol Chronic Diseases Like Kidney Disease, Diabetes, And/or Sleep Apnea Treating Hypertension with Diabetes While some people can improve their type 2 diabetes and hypertension with lifestyle changes, most require medication. Depending on their overall health, some people may need more than one medication to reduce their risk. High blood pressure medications fall into five distinct categories: ACE inhibitors, ARBs, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and diuretics. Some medications produce side effects, so keep track of how you feel and be sure to discuss any other drugs you are taking with your doctor.

I would like to thank the video contributors: Rizalyn Joy Gadugdug Maria Salvacion Gonzales Yasmin Hashmi Artem Shestakov And Babar Hayatrana The plan today is to explore hypertension disease. The medical treatment of patients with hypertension consists of encouraging major lifestyle changes as well as using several classes of medications. Diagnosing and treating hypertension can become a very complex plan of care. We will discuss the importance of obtaining an accurate blood pressure and getting a thorough medical history from the client. Also, we will identify some of the complications of hypertension and discuss pertinent laboratory and diagnostic tests indicative for this disease. It is critical to be sure that your client is aware of the risk factors for hypertension and we’ll explore them. In this video, you will see why hypertension is known as “the silent killer”. Systolic pressure is the pressure with which the left ventricle of the heart pushes blood through the body while contracting; and the diastolic pressure is the pressure exerted when the ventricles are filled with blood upon relaxation. Factors that can alter blood pressure are: health and age of the person volume of blood in the body also the elasticity of the blood vessels and the strength of the heartbeat. For example if the arteries are narrow and the volume of blood pumped by the heart is high, the person will experience a high blood pressure. A high blood pressure can affect different organs of the body, including the heart.

It was published in September 2018 in the New England Journal of Medicine. Surprisingly, it did not show a preventive benefit. Even more surprisingly, it showed an increased risk. And even more surprisingly, it was in cancer. Even the authors suggested that we look at these results with caution, since there are meta-analyses which showed just the opposite. There's one more surprise. The mortality rate was less than half of that predicted in the study. This is being seen in several studies, such as the ASCEND trials.

What medication might my Doctor put me on to treat my blood pressure?
 
01:47
Dr James Thompson is a UK-based GP. He will answer all of your questions about medical and health issues. You are welcome to use all or part of this transcript if referring to Dr James Thompson and askdocjames.com Before your doctor considers medication, ideally you'll have tried changing your lifestyle to manage your blood pressure. Your Doctor can help you lose weight or become more active before commencing treatment but is likely to resort to tablets if you are unable to do this or the lifestyle changes have not had enough of an effect on your blood pressure. The tablets chosen may vary dependent on your age, other medication that you take and your ethnicity. If you are under the age of fifty-five it is likely that you will be started on a drug called an ace inhibitor, examples of this drug are running along the bottom of the screen now. You should expect to have a blood test to check your kidneys are happy on these tablets and this is likely to be repeated if your Doctor needs to increase the dose to control your symptoms. The most common side effect of this drug is a dry irritating cough and there are alternatives to try if this happens. If you are fifty five and over or are black from an African or Caribbean origin then you are likely to be started on a calcium channel blocker and examples of these are again running along the screen now. These tablets can cause problems with ankle swelling and constipation, though you can report these side effects to your Doctor and they can try an alternative or a lower dose. It is likely that a diuretic like bendroflumethiazide would be started if these do not fully control your blood pressure or you experience side effects. Ace inhibitors: Urea and electrolytes is the blood test. Perindopril, ramipril, captopril, lisinopril. Calcium channel blockers: Amlodipine, felodipine, lercanidipine

From Liverpool - The Who's iconic lyric- "I hope I die before I get old"- may tell a disturbing truth. Researchers studying the cause of death of over 1,000 musicians have found that they were 2-3 times more likely to die at a young age. The highest risk period was up to 5 years after rocketing to fame. From Exeter - Unlike obesity, height is largely determined by genetics. In fact, up to 90% of our height is programmed by our genes. New research had identified a new gene that accounts for variation in height. Single base changes in the gene HMGA2 can account for 1 cm differences. From Sydney - A combination of 2 pills for high blood pressure- a diuretic and an ACE inhibitor- could prevent heart disease in diabetics. According to the ADVANCE study, which followed over 11,000 patients with high blood pressure, the combo lowered the risk of dying from heart disease by 18%. And finally from Vienna - More insight on drug eluting stents. In a study of over 60,000 patients with MI, there was no higher risk of death after 4 years in those who received drug eluting stents. Those who received bare metal stents only had a 3% higher risk of restenosis. For Insidermedicine in 60, I'm Dr. Susan Sharma.

As the nurse practitioner takes a comprehensive history of her client with high blood pressure, which of the following risk factors presented might contribute to hypertension? Select all that apply: A. Female over 55 years old B. African-American race C. Smoker D. Has high cholesterol levels E. Working as a phone operator F. Exercises 150 minutes per week Answer: B, C, D, E are risk factors associated with having high blood pressure. Rationale: Jobs that primarily involve the use of a computer or a phone are classic types of sedentary jobs and considered a risk factor. The age risk factor for women is when they are over 65, while that of the male individual is over 55-60 years old. 150 minutes a week of exercise is not a risk factor but a preventive measure for high blood pressure. Numerous studies have linked high cholesterol to cardiovascular disease; it has been shown to cause the blood vessels to constrict excessively, which may interfere with overall blood pressure regulation.

Most studies are retrospective and susceptible to confounding. Given the fact that the #1 known cause of dementia is diabetes/prediabetes/insulin resistance - and Metformin is the #1 treatment for these problems - it's clear that metformin use will always be more common about populations selected for dementia. In fact, the major cause for confusion in research the relationship of metformin to dementia is confounding. A confounder is something related to both the exposure and the disease. 2 examples are used: metformin and dementia, and diuretics and heart attack/stroke. In both situations the exposure ( metformin and diuretices) are meds commonly given for the most common known causes (diabetes and high blood pressure). So, it's clear that any population of heart attack and stroke patients will have a lot of people that have had diuretics. And yes, any population of stroke victims will have a lot of people that have had metformin. So how will we deal with confounding in the science behind metformin and dementia?

Humans have two kidneys, one on each side of the spine in the area below the rib cage.Screen Shot 2015-03-23 at 5.35.54 AM They are bean-shaped and each of them measures about the size of a fist. Kidneys are organs responsible for filtration of the blood and removal of extra water and wastes from the bloodstream through urine. They filter about 120-150 quarts of blood per day, producing 1-2 quarts of urine every day. Kidneys play an important role in normal functioning of the body, by maintaining the consistency and composition of the blood. The main functions of the kidney include: Reabsorbing essential substances and removing extra fluids and wastes from the body as urine via the bladder they also Maintain the concentration of electrolytes such as potassium, sodium and phosphate The kidneys also: Produce hormones that strengthen the bones, maintain blood pressure and make red blood cells. Acute Renal failure which you will see abbreviated as (ARF) and is also known as acute kidney failure and acute kidney injury, is a condition in which the kidney stops functioning all of a sudden. It can take a few hours or a few days to develop. In ARF, the kidneys fail to filter the blood and remove the daily load of toxins out of the bloodstream through the urine. This leads to accumulation of wastes inside the body and disturbs the balance and concentration of chemical substances in the body, which is very damaging. Acute Renal failure patients are categorized into two groups depending on the amount of urine produced over a 24-hour period: Patients can be either Oliguric or Non- Oliguric: Oliguric – means that they produce less than 500 milliliters of urine per day less than16 oz/day Nonoliguric – means that they produces more than 500 milliliters of urine per day greater than 16 oz/day Although nonoliguric patients produce a large volume of urine but it contains very little amount of waste as the kidneys hasn’t filtered the blood properly. Risk Factors: Risk factors for developing acute renal failure include: The presence a chronic disease, like kidney diseases, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure or liver disease Blockage of the blood vessels in the legs or arms (and or peripheral artery disease). Bleeding Dehydration Increasing age, usually above 65 years of age Usage of ACE inhibitors Overuse of certain OTC painkillers known as NSAIDS such as naproxen and ibuprofen. Causes: There are three sites in the renal system that can get affected, causing abrupt kidney failure. These are the pre-renal, Intrinsic and Post-renal sites,

Hi, my name is David Riley. And in just a moment, I’m going to show you how a 56 year old man, who had been on blood pressure meds for 12 years, was regularly in a state of hypertensive crisis, had suffered 3 separate transient ischaemic attacks, and whose own doctor warned him was just days away from a stroke... stunned the world of medical science by lowering his systolic blood pressure by 105 points, and his diastolic blood pressure by 72 points in the space of just 17 days – transforming his health and adding years to his lifespan in the process. And the most amazing thing is, he achieved this remarkable turnaround using a 100% natural and completely safe home-made protocol, which required no medication of any kind. But what might shock you even more is that in just a few seconds from now, you’re going to discover that despite what your doctors have been telling you, you don’t actually need any medication to control your blood pressure at all – and never did. And you’re probably going to become extremely angry once I tell you that the solution I’m about to reveal – which has been based on a world-renowned study into hypertension which has published in countless peer-reviewed medical journals all over the world – has been deliberately suppressed by greedy and immoral pharmaceutical companies who make billions from blood pressure meds like ACE inhibitors, Angiotensin receptor blockers, Calcium-channel blockers, Beta-blockers, and more. And because of this, Big Pharma are doing everything in their power to keep this solution hidden from the very people who need it most. So I urge you to keep watching, because as I speak, Big Pharma are trying to force me to take down this presentation, because they do not want you to find out that there’s a simple and 100% natural way for you to quickly and dramatically lower your blood pressure, and transform your health in a matter of days, so that you never need their blood pressure meds ever again. This simple and easy-to-follow method is based on a bizarre treatment method developed by a Cardiologist and Hypertension Specialist who spent years studying a small and isolated tribe living in the depths of the Amazonian rainforest, and it has already been used to help 23,867 people – of all ages – to lower their blood pressure quickly, easily and safely.

Do Losartan and other ARBS prevent heart attack ? (no) - FORD BREWER MD MPH

ACE Inhibitors were the original drug in the Renin Angiotensin Antagonists. They have a big long-term impact in terms of preventing heart attack. But they also cause cough in up to 20% of patients. ARBs were developed to accomplish the same thing, but without the cough. ARBS do decrease blood pressure. And they decrease long term risk for stroke. But they DO NOT decrease the risk of heart attack. ACE Inhibitors do decrease the risk of heart attacks. There are reasons for this. It is likely due to the fact that ACE Inhibitors cause increased bradykinin ( by slowing the breakdown of bradykinin). Bradykinin does many things to decrease cv inflammation, include increased Nitric Oxide and decreased monocyte function. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4033811/ About Dr. Brewer - Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor.

High Blood Pressure Medication List
 
03:04
High Blood Pressure Medication List - http://healthpress.co/LowerBloodPressure Having a systolic pressure of 160 or higher or a diastolic pressure of 100 or higher, or possessing both readings to be high; you have stage 2 high blood pressure. In such scenarios, you will most likely require to take a minimum of at least two common medications upon starting your treatment. Similarly to stage 1 hypertension, you will be most likely to be prescribed a thiazide diuretic. Excess water and sodium are eliminated from your body by the thiazide diuretic. This will effectively lower your blood pressure. Together with the diuretic, you might also be recommended to take: A calcium channel blocker: Due to this drug being used, calcium cannot go to both the heart and the blood vessel muscle cells. This allows the cells to stay relax and thus reduce the blood pressure. An ACE inhibitor: By inhibiting the production of the hormone that causes blood vessels to shrink, this drug aids to keep the blood vessels relax. A beta blocker: This drug work by lowering the nerve signals to the heart and blood vessels thus reducing the blood pressure. An angiotensin II receptor blocker: Expands blood vessels by stopping a hormone called Angiotensin from affecting the vessels. When your blood pressure increase dramatically, it is crucial to lower it rapidly in order to prevent or delay the complications. A two-drug combination generally works faster as compared to a single drug to get your blood pressure under control. Similarly to Stage 1 Hypertension, a double medication combo also protects the patient against heart disease, kidney failure and stroke. In some cases, a third, or more, medication may be needed in order to get your condition under control. High blood pressure is more often than not present with other health problems. Some of the conditions present might be serious enough to warrant a more aggressive treatment. These conditions are: -Diabetes -Heart failure -Chronic kidney disease -Previous heart attack -High risk of coronary artery disease -Enlarged left chamber of the heart (left ventricular hypertrophy) -Previous stroke By having Hypertension, you have a greater risk of contracting any of the conditions in the above list. Thus, if you already have one or more of these conditions plus high blood pressure, your chances of developing a life-threatening complication increases. Therefore, a more forceful treatment might be needed in order to reduce your risk of getting these complications. You might be prescribed specific high blood pressure medications to treat these conditions, as well as additional medications for your high blood pressure. Example: Beta blockers might be prescribed for your chest pain (Angina), these drugs also work to lower your blood pressure, prevent chest pain, reduce your heart rate and reduce your risk of death.

Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.

Debunking the video "Debunking What The Health", an interview with Dr Neal Bernard; Missed "Facts"

Plant Based News first calls this a Debunking. It's Click Bait. It's not true. It's an advertisement for the video. This is not the only problem with transparency - or at least niavete. Statements like eggs cause diabetes and "vegan snack are best for diabetics" are - at least- oversimplified. Popular vegan snacks listed on the internet include pretzels, cookies and cheddar snips. Nothing could be worse for diabetics. Then there are statements that the egg industry is unethical. There are clearly ethics challenges in egg industries, just like all industries. And animal food industries are notoriously cruel to animals. I've toured Smithfield pork rendering plants in NC and others in OK. My extended family has chicken farmers in NC. As I boy, I've cleaned out the chicken houses. Animal food industries are ugly. But here are a couple of facts on the other side of this debate. 1. NIH funding is not at all free from conflict of interest; 2. the human body needs cholesterol and makes it's own - maybe up to the amount of cholesterol you'd see in 100 eggs per day; 3. the bad things in eggs are the yolks. Until better plant-based substitutes are available, egg yolk omelettes are far better for me as a diabetic than my old favorite - grits.

Blood Pressure Drugs Safer Than Thought in Older Adults
 
00:42
Because hpertension in older adults is more difficult to treat, physicians often are hesitant to prescribe blood pressure-lowering medications in adults over 80. The American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association have released new recommendations regarding which medications are safest and most effective for older adults, as well as guidance in identifying other non-drug treatments. Research has found that blood pressure drugs are safer in this age group than previously thought. According to the guidelines, appropriate blood pressure drugs in very elderly adults are ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers, angiotensin receptor blockers, diuretics and calcium channel blockers. Doctors prescribing antihypertensive drugs for this age group should be sure to start at the lowest dose possible, experts say. Check with your physician. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Media Compilation Bureau Friendly" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yohOce9qu6E -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Can Eating An Egg Cause Hypertension?
 
02:08
Can Eating An Egg Cause Hypertension? There is one organ which causes high blood pressure (and it's not what you think!) and there are specific exercises you can use to target and fix your blood pressure easily. No diet, lifestyle changes or medication required: http://hibloodpressure.stream/ Answers from: Jon Kapecki Not likely. Although the well-researched DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet recommends that egg yolks be avoided, that is largely due to their cholesterol content which indirectly could exacerbate high blood pressure, though the link between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol continues to be debated. In fact, there is limited but growing research that eggs could help to lower blood pressure. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in December 2005 found that people who ate one to three eggs per week had an 11 to 21 percent lower risk for developing high blood pressure than those who ate eggs less often. That may be due to the eggs contribution to overall dietary protein. Data from the long-running Framingham Offspring Study found that adults who consumed more lean protein, whether from dairy, eggs, meat, or plant sources, had lower blood pressure levels after four years of follow-up. (Combining increased fiber with the higher protein intake produced even more dramatic reductions in blood pressure.)More recently a 2009 study found that a protein in eggs whites can act similarly to ACE (angiotensin-converting-enzyme) inhibitors, a type of medicine used to control hypertension. Another protein found in eggs (and elsewhere), arginine, dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure as well. But dont go overboard. Although recommendations from various sources differ, you may want to limit your whole egg consumption to three or four a week, though you can supplement this with egg whites if you wish. And as usual, dont just rely on medical advice from a guy on the Internet. Check with your doctor, especially if you do have any adverse medical conditions. There may be underlying factors beyond general information like this that you need to consider. More: https://youtu.be/SKSPV3KEdOY Subscribe to our channel!

The inpatient nurse notices a diagnosis of angioedema for the newly admitted 44-year-old client. She expects that her client would have which of the symptoms below? A. Chest pain with increased heart rate B. Swelling of the tongue, lips, throat and extremities C. Skin having central red spots with reddish extensions radiating outward D. Painful swelling of the calves Answer: B. Rationale: Skin having central red spots with reddish extensions radiating outward is called a spider angioma seen in clients with chronic liver disease. Meanwhile, painful swelling of the calves is seen in deep vein thrombosis. Angioedema is seen as swelling of the tongue, lips, throat and extremities. This is an uncommon, known side effect of ACE inhibitors, an antihypertensive medication. Hopefully this client had been instructed by his prescriber or nurse to call 911 if he experienced swelling of his tongue, lips, and throat; as the situation can sometimes become critical and need emergent treatment! NURSES should never take lightly the importance of their responsibility to explain side effects of the medications that they are administering to their clients. It may save a life!

The Dangers of Thiazide Diuretics in Treating Hypertension
 
04:53
According to a collaborative study between the University of Texas Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center that was published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society in June of 2014, people over the age of 65 who are treated with thiazide diuretics (such as HCTZ -- which is hydrochlorthiazide -- or Hygroton), are in danger of developing several metabolic defects. This study pointed out three metabolic defects that include hyponatremia (low sodium), hypokalemia (low potassium), and acute kidney injury where there was at least a 25% decrease in kidney function. Wow! And there's more that was not included in this article such as causing high cholesterol and uric acid (predisposes to gout), insulin resistance (predisposes to type 2 diabetes), and low magnesium! And this is the first drug of choice according to the major medical associations that set the guidelines for treating high blood pressure! Wow! It makes you wonder about the rest of the drugs used in managing this disease. Lifestyle remains the best treatment for managing hypertension. For more information, please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

Video abstract of Review type paper “The role of novel biomarkers in predicting diabetic nephropathy: a review” published in the open access journal International Journal of Nephrology and Renovascular Disease by author Samuel N Uwaezuoke. Abstract: Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the microvascular complications of the kidney arising commonly from type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), and occasionally from type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Microalbuminuria serves as an early indicator of DN risk and a predictor of its progression as well as cardiovascular disease risk in both T1DM and T2DM. Although microalbuminuria remains the gold standard for early detection of DN, it is not a sufficiently accurate predictor of DN risk due to some limitations. Thus, there is a paradigm shift to novel biomarkers which would help to predict DN risk early enough and possibly prevent the occurrence of end-stage kidney disease. These new biomarkers have been broadly classified into glomerular biomarkers, tubular biomarkers, biomarkers of inflammation, biomarkers of oxidative stress, and miscellaneous biomarkers which also include podocyte biomarkers, some of which are also considered as tubular and glomerular biomarkers. Although they are potentially useful for the evaluation of DN, current data still preclude the routine clinical use of majority of them. However, their validation using high-quality and large longitudinal studies is of paramount importance, as well as the subsequent development of a biomarker panel which can reliably predict and evaluate this renal microvascular disease. This paper aims to review the predictive role of these biomarkers in the evaluation of DN.

Transcript: Renal insufficiency is a medical term for a condition that's more commonly known as renal failure or kidney failure. It may also be called kidney insufficiency. Renal insufficiency means that your kidneys no longer have sufficient ability to carry out their normal functions. Renal insuffiency is a serious kidney problem and can even be fatal if left untreated. There are several types of renal insufficiency. Acute renal failure - This is also known as ARF and acute kidney failure. It occurs when some form of kidney disease has caused the kidneys to stop working, usually in an uncharacteristically short time. Since the kidneys normally filter toxins, wastes and excess fluids from the body, acute kidney failure is extremely dangerous and qualifies as a medical emergency. ARF can be caused by an infection, a variety of drugs (especially in overdose situations), traumatic injury, major surgery, or nephrotoxicity (toxic damage to the tiny filters in the kidneys). It can also happen if the blood flow to a kidney is obstructed or blocked. Anyone with acute renal insufficiency is likely to need emergency dialysis. Sometimes, the kidneys can be restored to normal function, but this is not always the case. Kidney damage may be permanent. Chronic renal insufficiency is the second type. It is often abbreviated as CRI, and is sometimes called progressive renal insufficiency. Chronic renal insufficiency is an insidious condition that often takes years - even decades - to develop and progress to the point that you even know you have it. By the time symptoms appear, there's often been considerable damage done and chronic renal failure (as known as CRF or simply "kidney failure") is a possibility. Kidney damage from chronic renal insufficiency is currently irreversible. Once it reaches a stage known as end stage renal disease (ESRD), the kidneys no longer work, there are only two options for survival: kidney dialysis or a kidney transplant. In recent years, medical researchers have learned that the progress of chronic renal insufficiency may be slowed by controlling blood pressure with drugs known as ACE inhibitors . Medications known as "statins," which are used to lower high cholesterol, have also shown some promise in recent studies. There are a number of diseases and risk factors associated with renal insufficiency. Both Type I and Type II diabetes and high blood pressure are among the most common causes. Other types of kidney problems include kidney stones, kidney infections and kidney cancer. Individuals in higher risk groups are those over age 65, those who have a family history of kidney problems, those who are obese or smoke, and those in certain demographic groups: African-American, American Indian or Asian-American. Renal insufficiency symptoms are slow to appear, so anyone with health conditions or risk factors related to kidney insufficiency should consider having kidney tests done by their doctor. As with most other diseases and conditions, treatment is more likely to be successful if it begins sooner rather than later.
