Omega-3 deficiency 6th biggest cause of avoidable death in U.S.
Knowledge of the number of deaths caused by risk factors is needed for health policy and priority setting. Our aim was to estimate the mortality effects of the following 12 modifiable dietary, lifestyle, and metabolic risk factors in the United States (US) using consistent and comparable methods: high blood glucose, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and blood pressure; overweightâ€obesity; high dietary trans fatty acids and salt; low dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega-3 fatty acids (seafood), and fruits and vegetables; physical inactivity; alcohol use; and tobacco smoking.

Increased d-lactic acid intestinal bacteria in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome

Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are affected by symptoms of cognitive dysfunction and neurological impairment, the cause of which has yet to be elucidated. However, these symptoms are strikingly similar to those of patients presented with D-lactic acidosis.

A Gene Signature for Post-Infectious Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

At present, there are no clinically reliable disease markers for chronic fatigue syndrome. DNA chip microarray technology provides a method for examining the differential expression of mRNA from a large number of genes. The hypothesis was that a gene expression signature, generated by microarray assays, could help identify genes which are dysregulated in patients with CFS and so provide biomarkers for the condition.

Chronic fatigue syndrome after infectious mononucleosis in adolescents

The goal was to characterize prospectively the course and outcome of chronic fatigue syndrome in adolescents during a 2-year period after infectious mononucleosis.

Red yeast rice for dyslipidemia [high cholesterol] in statin-intolerant patients: A randomized trial

Red yeast rice is an herbal supplement that decreases low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level. [“Bad” cholesterol.]

Clinical Case Report: Ultrastructural Evidence of Skeletal Muscle Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Patients With Subclinical Hypothyroidism

Because muscle cramps and weakness have been noted in subclinical hypothyroidism, histological skeletal muscle examination may be of diagnostic significance, as the presence of abnormalities would substantiate a significant consequence of the mild thyroid failure presumed to be present in the individual with subclinical hypothyroidism.

The Premenstrual Syndrome and Fibromyalgia: Similarities and Common Features

The aim of the study was to assess the clinical similarities and common features of fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) and premenstrual dysphoric syndrome (PMDD). Thirty young patients who met the diagnostic criteria for PMDD were included in the study and compared to 26 women belonging to the medical staff of a general psychiatry department [control group].

A two-year follow-up study of chronic fatigue syndrome comorbid with psychiatric disorders

Chronic fatigue syndrome patients often have comorbid psychiatric disorders such as major depressive disorders and anxiety disorders. However, the outcomes of chronic fatigue syndrome and the comorbid psychiatric disorders and the interactions between them are unknown.
