A thread (Part 2)

I even learn to lower my eyes and avoid seeing inappropriate parts of a person's body. The reason is love. Love is not rude (1 Cor. 13:5).

I love the Indonesian translation of that Verse, it is similar to not doing inappropriate things. I am a Christian and I need to love and respect others.
I did all of that not because I want to boast or act like "You're all holier than thou"... No.
It is because I know my flesh is. Once I give it a little chance, what had been dead will suddenly arise.

Bible, the Words of God has made me love to read, literally everything. Reading has become one of my fave habits and my hobbies. Besides the Bible, the man I love also has shared in it.
I got intrigued because it is one of his particular hobbies (Yes, he is still that same person. If you are somehow curious about who he is, just take time to scroll down my Twitter account. You'll find out).

Had a run of 3 good days, but just tried doing *some* of the things my lungs had allowed me to do over the weekend & over-did it by fixing the ball-cock in the toilet cistern! Lowered my guard; lungs are tight again (first time in 10 days) & I'm lightheaded. #PulmonaryEmbolism

How #sleep loss may make physical #exercise more challenging for the #heart:

We find that sleep loss ⬆️ the exercise 🚴‍♀️-induced ⬆️ in blood levels of a #cardiac stress biomarker vs. after normal sleep

But note, exercise is essential for your health

2/ Extensive epidemiological data has found that sleep impacts the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

E.g. @uk_biobank (n~408k):

Vs. 7 h, sleep duration of ≤5 h & ≥9 h were associated with higher risk of CVD mortality & incidence (~+8-30%).

1/ Did you know that you can use your genetic raw data file from #23andMe or #AncestryDNA to learn more about your health?

A thread on using your data to optimize health and prevent chronic disease 🧵
2/ When getting started learning about how your #genes impact susceptibility to chronic disease, it can be overwhelming.

It isn't like high school science when you learned you inherited the 'brown eye gene' or the 'short gene'.
3/ Most chronic diseases, like #diabetes or #heart disease, have a genetic component. But it is a combination of multiple genetic variants along with lifestyle factors that lead to disease.

Hey Twitter! It's been a while. I used to write here all the time hanging out with #scifichat, #comicschat, #litchat, talking about #science, #tech, #autism and a dozen other topics which broadened my horizons and let me share my diverse interests in almost everything.
Then my life got incredibly busy. My son went to high school and coupled with his #autism, our lives became super-complex. I lost my job and my car gave up the ghost after four years of @Uber. Then the unthinkable, my wife experienced #renalfailure.
4 years ago, she underwent an operation for #peritoneal #dialysis. This form of at-home dialysis would let her take care of her renal needs at home avoiding the need for external #hemodialysis centers. In hindsight, this may have saved her life.

1. No matter how bad your life can seem, you can always make it worse.

Coincidence of a series of coincidences ! This thread is for those who love 💘 #coincidences. A 🧵 ... 1/n
It is just a coincidence that the World Economic Forum (#WEF) and Bill Gates et al reviewed a meeting in 2019 and predicted about a possible future viral pandemic, just before the #COVID #pandemic. It must be another plain coincidence that a viral pandemic began exactly 2/n

I want to start a new thread story. Not sure how long it will be and I may use different prompts: #vss365 #vssmagic #vssnature etc etc ... I love reading about legends and folk lore, and in my fantasy writing I often create my own myths. So this will be just a fun exercise...
According to #lore &myths of old,griffins nestled on these cliffs long ago. They swooped down on the unsuspecting;carried them off never to be seen again.
Griffins were not elemental creatures,but air & earth did have dominion over them; their only enemy -fire.
#vss365 #vssmagic
"I helped your troupe avoid #shadow and #gore," said the dark wizard simply, implying that he saved us from the mythical griffins. I gaped at him. "And now for what you promised."

"No," I was careful not to get trapped in words, "I said: after you summon her."

Team it's time to address the Hoeg et al preprint on post-COVID vaccine myocarditis. How am I qualified to speak about myocarditis? I am board certified in paediatric cardiology and currently have patients recovering from this condition. TLDR: They are doing quite well. #MRI
What is the premise of that article? directly scanning VAERS data will result in capturing more cases of myocarditis, and therefore the "conclusion" that COVID vaccine generates a higher risk of myocarditis than COVID disease. But - cardiologists have diagnostic criteria. #heart
All that bleeds troponin is **not** myocarditis. I cite my professional society, the American College of Cardiology: #myocarditis #COVID19 #vaccination #VaccinesWork Image

1. Finally, I managed to spare 2 hours to do my own analysis. This thread is for anyone who, like me, is really curious about the containment of #COVID19 Death & Mortality over time, free from left/right political bias or conspiracy theories. It is unfortunate such an ..

ICYMI, a reminder that this pandemic will have a lasting legacy beyond the tragedy of the countless lost lives and grieving families. Results from the #COVERSCAN study on #longcovid reports that organ impairment was detected in post COVID patients as shown in the figure below
This included damage to the #heart, #lungs, #kidneys, #liver, #pancreas and #spleen In almost a third of patients, damage in 2 or more organs was identified. In particular, damage to the liver, heart or lungs was associated with further organ impairment.
The participants in this study were all considered to be previously at low risk of #mortality and had no #comorbidities. bmjopen.bmj.com/content/11/3/e…

He goes 2 a GP. Clinical examination and blood tests done. Says some chest infection. Puts him on antibiotics for a week. Asks for review. 1wk later some change in symptoms, but not fully ok. GP extends antibiotic course 7 more days. C, no fever and no signs of infection yet.

After 14d course, no change. Patient chucks the GP. Goes for a senior GP. Senior GP does clinical exam,blood tests AND chest X ray. X ray comes back as "not looking normal" 🙄 But no diagnosis. So he says. Let's try a short course of #antibiotics AND antifungal. Again 14 days

How is the #heart affected in severe #COVID19? Patients with a raised troponin have worse outcomes – but why? Our multicentre #whyCMR @ESC_Journals paper shows a variety of problems including infarction, ischaemia and a myocarditis-like injury. academic.oup.com/eurheartj/adva…
This was a very sick #COVID19 group: all admitted, all with raised troponin, 1 in 3 ventilated. Our findings DON’T tell us about the hearts of patients with mild illness who didn’t need admission to hospital or didn’t have raised troponin.
Even pre #COVID19 (remember that?) #whyCMR was useful to find the cause and implications of troponin elevation. Check out this paper from @DeepDastidar and @SCMRorg CEO @chiarabd sciencedirect.com/science/articl…

**Help IS Desperately NEEDED** **Emergency HELP**

This is very hard for us to write. But we feel we have no other choice due to us seeing the massive amount of requests that we are getting daily for both Humans and Pets.

Here is what has happened as of late:
This past weekend alone, we had over 30 emergency requests from individuals & families fleeing domestic violence. Many leaving with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

We were able to help about 17 of these individuals find shelter and lodging via referrals to other groups.
The other 13 individuals are being helped by our awesome volunteers. We are tracking down emergency funding and helping them apply for help through various organizations here in #Calgary.

We will be assisting them and their families in hopes of helping them feel safe once again.
