We Need To Base Our Understanding of Reality Upon Reality, Not Manipulation.

Everything You Think You Know About Disease Is Likely Wrong....
In order to understand the world around us as the truth about it is emerging from a 100+ year slumber, it’s going to be important to challenge ideas that have absolutely zero basis in reality.

I will start off by saying that we have been duped - ALL OF US.

Shorter #stride length is associated with higher incidence of life threatening clinical events in #olderadults
1. 14,000 people (Av age 75 yrs) were followed up for 33 months. 10% of them sustained #Falls. Stride length was shorter in fallers as compared to non-fallers. Image
2. In a sub-analysis based on gender, the stride length was longer and #walking speed slower in males compared to females.

#running #fitness #healthylifestyle
3. Major adverse events (MAEs) were 36% higher, physical disability 26% higher and #mortality 69% higher in older people with shorter stride length.
MAEs included physical disability, falls, dependency, institutionalization, and mortality.

White coat #hypertension (WCH) can not be left alone

1. Patient: My BP is high only in hospital, at home it is normal. So, I don't want to do anything about it.
Me: High BP (whether in hospital or at home) can lead to adverse outcomes, so, you should aim for a normal BP 24/7.
2. A study showed that in untreated cohorts, WCH was associated with a 38% and 20% increased risk of #Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and total #mortality (death) compared with normotension (normal BP), respectively.
3. However, in the treated patients (who received medications to keep BP normal at office as well as at home), neither the risk of CVD, nor total mortality was increased in WCH.

Association of Muscle-Strengthening and Aerobic Physical Activity With Mortality in US Adults Aged 65 Years or Older…
#exercise #Longevity #mortality #elderly
1. As little as 10 min/wk of aerobic exercises caused lesser deaths in elderly as compared to <10 min.
2. Benefits of aerobic activity were seen up to 300 min or more per week.
3. 32% lower deaths occurred with >300 min/wk of aerobic exercises as compared to 17% in 10-150 min grp
4. For muscle strengthening activity (MSA), the effect on death rate was U shaped. Deaths were higher with <2 and >6 sessions of MSA. Lowest deaths occurred in elderly doing 2-6 sessions of MSA.

Exactly 7 years ago, I spent #StrokeAwarenessDay undergoing emergency #thrombectomy for #basilar artery occlusion. #BAO

Today, I'm still in awe and celebrating how #modern #medicine saved me from locked-in syndrome and enabled me to live a normal life, against all odds.

1/ 🧵
2/ So far, I have avoided sharing this information as part of my professional life, fearing it would somehow disqualify me as a credible clinician-scientist. Finally, I realize that the experience only strengthened my resolve to give future patients the second chance I was given.
3/ What happened in brief:

I was a healthy, 25yo medical student, all excited to have finished the first 10K run of my life not even 5 hours before my family reacted #FAST and called 911.

9) Many risk factors modulate the propensity of LDL-C to traverse the endothelium and enter the arterial intima. See 🔓….
10) It now appears that the passage of #LDL into the #intima is not a merely passive process whereby the concentration in blood & the permeability of the endothelium determine LDL accumulation.
11) It’s #Transcytosis (an active process), through a vesicular pathway involving #caveolae, scavenger receptors (#SRB1) and activin like receptor kinase 1 (#ALK1). Hence for a given blood level of LDL-C the amount of atherosclerosis is variable.

PLEASE do not use the @CDCgov data on deaths to compare #COVID19 #mortality per capita in #Florida to other states.

Below, I created a viz from the CDC COVID Tracker to compare 5 states. Florida is the green line and the red arrow shows a recent decrease.

Despite that suggested DECREASE in FL...

I just tweeted this out highlighting the recent INCREASE (almost a doubling) is reported COVID-19 deaths this week.

What gives?

The way in which states report mortality data to @CDCgov is not the same. Almost all report based on date reported.

FL reports by date of death

That is NOT a criticism - I like the way FL reports it so I can calc both types of curves - but it is a caution for comparison.

🇬🇧Let's have a look at GRO deaths figures for #England & #Wales.
No bias, no manipulation, just a division into semesters.
Thanks to vaccination, excess #mortality was expected to disappear or at least collapse, but…🧐
And yes, because there are spectacular peaks, forgetting the depressions that follow (harvest effect) and then the excesses that accumulate week after week and which hurt the population, silently…
What about other UK nations?
#Scotland #NorthIreland
The excess is quadrupled!

The number of children infected with #Covid-19 is less among all other age group in the global population. How about the #psychological, #social impact in on #children? Researches suggests social and psychological impact in this group were mostly severe.
To find some answer and have idea let's take a closer look at the researches and figures provided by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), which shows the magnitude of the pandemic’s #impact on #children. Image
As families lose their sources of #income and home environments are turned upside down due to the socioeconomic impacts of Covid-19, #children find themselves more vulnerable to #poverty and likely to be deprived of their basic needs. Image

I’m a Pediatrician = ❤️👶🏽🧑🏻👩🏾. I have worked in Children’s Hospitals, on medivac teams and now in the North. These are my thoughts on what we are facing with #Delta going into the fall
1. Wave 4 of #COVID will be a pandemic of #misinformation, under-vaccination and inadequate mitigating public health interventions (removing mask mandate, not addressing school ventilation, etc). We have reached the limits of what “encouraging people to get vaccinated” can do.
2. Who will pay the price? #Children, esp children < 12 who can’t be #VaxXed. It is misleading to say “not that many kids die”. #Mortality is a pretty crude outcome measure in #Pediatrics. What about disability, medical trauma, impact on families, mental health?

What if you or your doctor could accurately predict how long you had to live upon a new diagnosis of aggressive cancer (e.g. lung cancer or sarcoma)? I've faced that question both as a doctor and with a dearly beloved. On the one hand I know I would 1/ #ML #AI #mortality

families and society might allocate resources/support accordingly, research might focus on why exceptional patients deviate markedly from the prediction… . Therefore a recent study by colleagues @HarvardDBMI @HarvardChanSPH @harvardmed on this prediction 3/
