Saw 64y old #patient with #jaundice and severe #itching all over #body (called #cholestatic #hepatitis) in OPD. Went to 3 other #hospitals prior, always evaluated for #liver and #bileduct #Cancer. Always cancer tests #Negative. Liverbiopsy👇 Image

Biopsy shows severe #bile stagnation (#cholestasis) in liver #cells and bile-ducts with #inflammation and #swelling of livercells (#hepatocyte) - classical picture of cholestatichepatitis. CT of liver normal, #MRCP (to see bile ducts) - normal #livertwitter #pathology

Patient has #diabetes. Tired of #insulin #diet control. #Ayurvedic #physician advises - stop insulin, start #natural side effect free #treatment. Gives these #CAPSULE . After 6 months on #tablet - liver injury and symptoms start. #nutrition deprived, sugar controlled. #MedEd

Often we vegetarians wonder how to ensure a protein rich diet without any meat .Here is a thread on #Protein rich food source options available for #Vegetarians.
It is a myth that one cannot derive enough protein from plant based food to build a good physique & be fit. +
2/11
Why do we need protein?
It is required for :
1)Daily repair of the body
2)Good hair and
3)Good skin .
Hence we need more of protein in our diet .
For a sedentary lifestyle 1gm/body weight of protein & to build a good body approx 1.5 gm/body weight is required. +
3/11
Also it depends on our BMR(Basal Metabolic Rate) .It is the number of calories required to keep our body working at a state of rest.
So I have tried my best to compile food rich in protein available aplenty. If you know more pls add to this thread for the benefit of all+

In this study, we have developed a fast and cost-effective method
for reverse genetics of coronaviruses by combining two approaches developed by others..As the genomes can be divided into multiple short fragments, mutations can be introduced into individual
fragments easily. ImageImageImageImage

Stop saying that higher protein intakes cause renal failure, you are wrong. From the WHO/FAO:
“…the suggestion that the decline of glomerular filtration rate that occurs with advancing age in healthy subjects can be attenuated by reducing the protein content
in the diet has no foundation.”
From the IOM in setting the last DRI:
“…protein content of diet is not related to progressive decline in kidney function with age.”

A causal link? No evidence:

At least 7 teams are developing #SARSCoV2 #vaccines using a weakened / inactivated virus. Several existing vaccines are made this way, i.e. #measles & #polio #vaccine. Sinovac Biotech started to test an inactivated SARS-CoV-2 #COVID19 vaccine. #scicomm
At least 25 groups are working on viral-vector #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 #vaccines. A #virus such as #measles or #adenovirus is genetically engineered so it can produce #coronavirus #proteins in the body. These #viruses are weakened so they CANNOT cause disease.
At least 20 teams are using genetic instructions (#DNA or #RNA) for a #SARSCoV2 #coronavirus #protein that prompts an immune response. The nucleic acid is inserted into human cells, which churn out copies of the #virus protein; most encode the virus’s spike protein. #COVID19

We need some #GoodNews. Yes, this is a study in mice but this is so far the first peer-reviewed #coronavirus #vaccine study with promising results in @EBioMedicine published by @TheLancet from @PittTweet @UPMCnews @PittHealthSci vaccinologists
When tested in mice, the #vaccine, delivered through a fingertip-sized patch, produces #antibodies specific to #SARSCoV2 #virus. Researchers were able to act quickly because they already laid the groundwork during earlier #coronavirus #epidemics.
Compared to the experimental #mRNA #vaccine that entered clinical trials, this one - called #PittCoVacc, short for #Pittsburgh #Coronavirus Vaccine - follows a more established approach, using lab-made pieces of viral protein to build immunity (same way current #flu shots work)

THREAD 1/12 Patients with #cancer are being advised to #cocoon due to #COVID-19. This means they cannot shop for food. If you are caring for someone on cancer treatment including #Chemotherapy please be mindful that their nutritional needs are different to healthy people.
2/12 Patients with cancer can lose large amounts of muscle mass very quickly. Severe muscle loss (sarcopenia) affects 40% or more of patients with cancer. This causes poorer tolerance to chemotherapy. To slow muscle loss it is important that patients eat enough #protein.
3/12 #Poorappetite is common in patients with cancer - about 50% experience this. This means they do not feel hungry and when they eat, they often feel full very quickly. Little amounts of food and often are key to improving intake – small nourishing meals & snacks.

So it's playing out like this. Build up your muscle, stay fit; it's our reserve against a catabolic episode (1). When you relax and put your feet up, things go south (fast) and take, it appears, a long-time to recover (2).
Now this pandemic has provided a blanket catabolic episode for lots of people, and the age demographics and poor metabolic health of folks don't bode well (3). People can say it 'only' kills older people and those with pre-existing conditions, but who in NA is healthy anymore?
Lack of sleep, poor nutrition, lack of exercise, cancer is prevalent, plus exposure to a test of immunity and resilience equals a poor outcome? Likely never been a time, and hopefully, there will never be another time when the message of building resilience to a catabolic threat

Things they don’t tell you when you take up road cycling (a thread)

1- you will go numb in places you didn’t think were capable of such a thing. Girls, I’m talking intimate, boys, I’m talking Johnson.

#road #cycling #bike #ride #FitnessMotivation
2- you must fuel! Also, hitting the wall is called bonking. I’m a child. Every time someone says they’re bonking, that’s me laughing.

#roadbike #carbs #fuel #sweet
3- flies. Actually no, they’re not flies, they’re bullets. Today has been the day of the black beetle... oh my word do they hurt! If I hadn’t been wearing glasses, I’d be blind. Good protein though. Must have eaten thousands.
