This one in mice suggests that chronic inflammation, and specifically IL-6 levels, may lead to increases in frailty and physical decline due to skeletal muscle changes that are mediated by changes in mitochondrial regulation and autophagy. Image
- This study focuses on a humanized inducible IL-6 model "due to the significant homology between mouse and human IL-6 at the amino acid level".
- The goal of this study was to better understand the role of IL-6 in frailty.

In this thread, we will have fun talking about how a ketogenic diet makes for a healthy brain. And sharing just a small portion of the research that proves I am not making this up! Are you ready? 🧠🧵(1/14)
The ketogenic diet (KD) has been linked to significant neuroprotective effects, with Beta-hydroxybutyrate acid (BHBA) playing a key role in preventing neurodegenerative disorders. I kid you not. Ketogenic diets are no joke when it comes to having a kick-ass brain! (2/14)
Microglial cells play a crucial role in neurodegenerative disorders, but BHBA from the ketogenic diet can help. It promotes an anti-inflammatory microglial phenotype, reduces migration, and modulates cytokine levels. The implications for neuroprotection are off the charts! (3/14)

The anti-inflammatory effects of #exercise: mechanisms and implications for the prevention and treatment of disease 🧵… Image
2. Physical inactivity is linked to various health problems like #type2diabetes, #heartdisease, #cancer, and more. This is partly because of the accumulation of visceral fat, which triggers #inflammation in the body and promotes the development of these diseases.
3. Exercise has been found to have a protective effect against these chronic inflammation-related diseases, thanks to its anti-inflammatory effect. Regular exercise can reduce visceral fat mass and create an anti-inflammatory environment in the body.

B12 is an important water-soluble organic compound that plays a critical role in the health of our brains. It is involved in DNA synthesis, methylation, and cellular metabolism, which means it is necessary for the proper functioning of our cells. (1/21)
B12 deficiency is a major concern, as it can lead to megaloblastic anemia and neurological problems. But did you know that inadequate #B12 or subclinical deficiency is also very common? (2/21)
It's seen at all ages but definitely in elderly populations. This can be particularly worrisome for those with Alzheimer's disease (AD), as several studies have shown an association between B12 deficiency and #AD. (3/21)

The findings of this one suggest a causal effect of increased PUFA desaturase activity on risk of colorectal cancer and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, with a plausible candidate mechanism for this being an increased synthesis of arachidonic acid.
- Omega 3 and omega 6 PUFAs are metabolized by delta-5 (D5D) and delta-6 (D6D) desaturases to their respective long-chain metabolites.
- The study tried to examine the causal relevance of PUFAs for risk of site-specific cancers through a Mendelian randomization study design, defining the primary exposure as PUFA desaturase activity and secondary exposures as individual omega 3 and omega 6 PUFAs.

Got leaky gut and worried about Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) causing an immune response that leads to systemic inflammation? Well you should be! But let's talk about what a ketogenic diet can do to mitigate that for you. Shall we? 🧵(1/21)
A #leakygut is a condition in which the lining of the intestine becomes damaged or compromised, allowing toxins, undigested food particles, and harmful bacteria to enter the bloodstream. (2/21)
When this happens, large amounts of LPS (lipopolysaccharide) can be released into the bloodstream, triggering an #immune response and #inflammation in the body. (3/21)

This one suggests that a higher habitual coffee consumption may be associated with a lower type 2 diabetes risk, especially among drinkers of ground (filtered or espresso) coffee and non-smokers, and that lower subclinical inflammation may partially mediate this association.
- Using data from two large population-based cohorts, the UK-Biobank and the Rotterdam Study, longitudinal associations between higher habitual coffee consumption and lower risk of type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance were observed.
- Findings also suggested that higher coffee consumption was associated with lower CRP and leptin, and higher adiponectin and IL-13 concentrations.

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a crucial defense mechanism for the brain, regulating the exchange of molecules between the bloodstream and the brain. When the BBB is disrupted, it can have severe consequences for brain health. (1/12)
Alzheimer's disease is one example of a condition that is exacerbated by BBB disruption. When the BBB is compromised, amyloid beta-peptide deposits can accumulate, leading to #inflammation and disruption of neuronal function. (2/12)
A disrupted BBB in #Alzheimers means astrocyte and microglia inflammation, disruption of synaptic transmission, and myelin destruction. (3/12)

There is nothing that can reproduce or describe this nightmare.

By that I don't just mean the torture in the body or the desperate enduring of symptoms, the torture, which a healthy person cannot imagine at all.
All this fighting for treatment, for recognition, this constant humiliation...

...and then these desperate messages that you exchange with other affected people, and I don't mean the ones that you can read here, but that you exchange DIRECTLY,
this daily confrontation with death, every new treatment attempt - Russian Roulette ...while people are discussing out there whether it is appropriate to invest in research etc. or to educate.

We are discovering exciting things about how therapeutic nutritional ketosis could benefit those living with serious mental illnesses. It's time for a short thread about two main ways this could be happening. 🧵 (1/13)
First is the direct effect of ketones. Scientific studies have shown that people with serious mental illnesses often have trouble using glucose efficiently for fuel. Ketones supply fuel that doesn't depend on insulin or the cell's ability to metabolize glucose. (2/13)
By providing the brain with this alternative fuel source, ketones can help enhance energy production and improve cognitive function in people with serious mental illnesses. (3/13) #lifechanging

Both neighborhood and family #socioeconomic status (SES) influence children’s gray matter structure & function, but what about #whitematter (WM)? What could be some mediating mechanisms? We studied these questions in 8842 children from the #ABCD Study:…
RSI assessed microstructure in 31 WM tracts. We looked at RND, which measured *directional* intracellular water & could reflect organized #myelin, and RNI, which measured *isotropic* intercellular water & could reflect #glia/neuron cell bodies. (fig adapted Burnor et al 2021) Image
Higher neighborhood disadvantage and lower parental education had independent links to lower RND (organized myelin) in forceps maj, corticospinal tract, and sup long fasciculus. These agree with previous findings of lower DTI-FA and lower WM integrity in low SES. Image

There are positive effects of the #ketone body beta hydroxy-butyrate (BHB) on vascular function. Why? Very likely, the following things that we already know BHB does. And quite frankly, there are likely additional mechanisms that haven't even been discovered yet. 🧵(1/10)
BHB lowers high blood sugar, and that reduces the production of reactive oxygen species #ROS and #inflammation mediators. In other words, BHB reduces Oxidative Stress (2/10)
BHB increases endogenous #antioxidant production by upregulating gene expression in those pathways. So yes, #BHB reduces Oxidative Stress from that mechanism as well. (3/10)
