1/ Ex-type 2 diabetic - and my bud JJJ - sharing how he dropped HbA1c from 12 to 5.5 in 6 months on #Keto and came off meds at a patient panel for med students. Loving life, eating well! @minhal_ahmed @goutamgadiraju @MarkCzeisler @camitussie #metabolism #diabetes #foodismedicine
2/ Want to thank @ChrisPalmerMD @DoctorTro @BrianLenzkes @LowCarbEyeDoc @russwinn66 @StickmanBleedin @BiggestComeback for sharing as well. I believe @LCMDPodcast may release the full recording at some point. Also, want to thank my amazing peers for expressing interest in using

@kimisgubbed @VirusesImmunity @KaminskiMed @Be_Kinderr @jenbrea @ahandvanish Hey! Well hypoxic tissue cld lead to lower O2 extraction, & infected tissue is often hypoxic. Most intracellular pathogens hijack metabolism of cells they infect & “push” host mitochondrial metabolism to anerobic glycolysis (O2 not being used for OXPHOS):…
@kimisgubbed @VirusesImmunity @KaminskiMed @Be_Kinderr @jenbrea @ahandvanish 2/ In fact many intracellular #pathogens either directly or indirectly enhance hypoxia inducible factor (HIF-1) stability. HIF-1 is a key glycolytic regulator/transcription factor whose stability reduces reliance on OXPHOS by initiating glycolytic #metabolism
@kimisgubbed @VirusesImmunity @KaminskiMed @Be_Kinderr @jenbrea @ahandvanish 3/ With that in mind @VirusesImmunity, it was interesting that in your brain organoid model, you showed SARS-CoV-2 capable of infecting neurons, where it induced a locally hypoxic environment as measured by staining for HIF-1 alpha:

ما هو #الخرف؟

هل هو مجرد نسيان؟

هل #الزهايمر هو ذاته الخرف؟

وهل يتم تشخيصه بتحاليل/أشعة طبية؟

هنالك الكثير من الخلط بما يخص الخرف بلا شك المختصين لهم دور فيه حيث تم تغيير مسمياته عدة مرات اخرها في ٢٠١٣.

سنجيب عن هذه التساؤلات في هذه السلسلة @CogNeuroKSA @SaudiAlZheimer ١/١٢
الخرف #dementia مسمى يصف مجموعة من أمراض الانتكاس العصبي والزهايمر احدى انواعه

يتصف بتدهور عقلي ليس فقط بالذاكرة ولكن قد يؤثر على التفكير والسلوك والقدرة على أداء الأنشطة اليومية

على الرغم من أن الخرف يؤثر بشكل أساسي على كبار السن إلا إنه ليس جزءًا طبيعيًا من كبر السن. ٢/١٢
يصيب الخرف ٢٠٪ من الأشخاص فوق ٨٠ سنة، و ٤٠٪ من هم بعمر ٨٥ سنة وأكبر

بفضل الله ثم تطورات الطب الحديث ازداد عدد السكان بعمر٨٠ وما فوق من ١٪ في ١٩٠٠م إلى ٤٪ من إجمالي عدد سكان العالم حالياً،

وبذلك ارتفعت عدد إصابات الخرف اليوم الى ٥٥ مليون والمتوقع ان تصل ١٣٩ مليون في ٢٠٥٠م

Now we're up to Ron Davis and the metabolic trap hypothesis for #MECFS: yeast model for the metabolic trap. (1/7) #metabolism #fatigue
Tryptophan is largely metabolized by a protein made by an enzyme called IDO-1. A second enzyme, called IDO-2, may be a "more primitive" version of the same enzyme. IDO-1 is substrate-inhibited. (2/7) #metabolism #MECFS
In a small study with ~20 severe patients, all had at least one mutation in IDO-2. "It's not a requirement that you have a mutation in IDO-2" to have ME/CFS, says Davis. It doesn't rule out that mutations here can play a role. (3/7) #metabolism #MECFS

1/ New Human study supports twin-cycle hypothesis of #diabetes … thread incoming!
#metabolism #insulinresistance…
2/ The twin cycle hypothesis postulates that accumulation of liver fat can drive diabetes in the following way: more liver fat promotes hepatic insulin resistance which increases gluconeogenesis and thus increases insulin to promote more de novo lipogenesis. Basically…
3/ Basically, more liver fat more insulin resistance more liver fat and so on. New human data provide support for the model. One of the key findings of the paper is that more liver fat = more de novo lipogenesis, creating specifically the saturated fat palmitic acid (PA)…

Circulating levels of Lipoprotein Lipase inhibiting factor ANGPTL8 are associated with increased all-cause mortality and CVD risk .@DaveKeto Thoughts?
#metabolism #cvd #LEM
P.S. (ANGPTL8 aka "betatrophin" in the literature)……
2/ Also, it's all very mechanistic, with ANGPTL4 vs. 3/8 being oppositely regualted by feeding and fasting in a tissue specific manner such that fasting decreases fat storage in adopicytes and feeding promotes it.

And, perhaps, unsuprislingly, the lipid metabolism is...
3/ w.r.t ANGPTLs (and specifically 4, which controls local LPL activity) is linked with glucose homeostasis...

One of the urban myths of NAD metabolism is the idea that NAD+ is good, while NADH is bad. NAD+:NADH are a redox couple that differ by a hydride group (a proton with 2 electrons) /1
NAD+ picks up the hydride when small molecules are oxidized, forming NADH. NADH donates the electrons to generate ATP and/or heat at the inner mitochondrial membrane. NADH is also the source of electrons in ketone body formation and gluconeogenesis /2
Thus, ketogenesis and gluconeogenesis are run in a reducing environment while fuel oxidation to produce ATP and/or heat requires oxygen as the ultimate electron acceptor to maintain a high NAD+/NADH ratio /3

Our latest paper from @LabMetabolism is out! 🧠🔥

"Changes in mitochondrial morphology modulate LPS-induced loss of #calcium homeostasis in BV-2 microglial cells"

#Metabolism #NeuroTwitter #ImmunoTwitter
This was @osvaldo_rpe's first publication and a pretty cool debut indeed!

Osvaldo is a brilliant scientist that I had the honor to co-advise. No doubt I learned from him way way more than I taught.

A well-deserved first-authorship for an undergraduate student! 👏
Go, go #mitochondria!

We already knew that microglial activation induces mitochondrial fragmentation and that mito morphology correlates with its Ca2+ uptake

But the influence of mito Ca2+ handling on #microglial activation was still unclear...

Happy 2021! @MBVanElzakker and I are excited to share our new article published in #Immunometabolism: “Pathogens Hijack Host Cell Metabolism: Intracellular Infection as a Driver of the Warburg Effect in Cancer and Other Chronic Inflammatory Conditions”:…
2/ In the paper, we detail molecular mechanisms by which #viral, #bacterial, and #parasite intracellular pathogens can induce, or contribute to, a Warburg-like #metabolism in infected host cells in order to meet their own replication and nutritional needs.
3/ We also discuss how host defense towards #infection may impact cellular metabolic changes (including how #mitochondria can participate in the innate immune response towards infection)

This interesting study found that skeletal #muscle cells of #ME/CFS patients showed a decrease in oxidative phosphorylation (a metabolic pathway used by #mitochondria to generate #energy). In simple terms, that caused the cells to have a dysregulated #metabolism.
2/ Not mentioned in the paper, but important to consider, is that most well-studied #viral + bacterial #pathogens “hijack” the metabolism of the cells they infect in a manner that can result in decreased oxidative phosphorylation (or similar changes in cell energy pathways).
3/ In simples terms, these #pathogens “hijack” cell metabolism to “pull” substrates out of the human mitochondrial energy pathways...and use the substrates (lipids, fatty acids, amino acids) for their own #nutritional and replication purposes!

Two weeks in my @Levels program and have a bunch of tests & thoughts I'll share later but this was too interesting not to share now. Ate 3 pieces of pizza for dinner just to see what it did to my glucose... #wearables #metabolicfitness #metabolism #DigitalHealth
Initial response was not bad (relatively) for the first 3 hours - even got a score of 8 from @Levels but then it got interesting. Glucose continued to bounce and stay high for the next 7 (!) hours, well into my sleep... ImageImage
Glucose finally came down around 1AM - my sleep was terrible that night & @ouraring showed my HRV finally started going up (good) and resting HR came down (also good) right around 1AM, same time the glucose leveled... ImageImage
