FDA warns GERD drugs may deplete magnesium

Use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) regularly for a year or longer may lead to low levels of circulating magnesium, which may increase the risk of leg spasms, arrhythmias, and seizures, according to an FDA warning. The FDA noted that PPI–associated hypomagnesemia was generally reversed with magnesium supplements, but in about 25% of cases magnesium supplementation alone did not improve low serum magnesium levels and the PPI had to be discontinued.

The FDA’s notice included the prescription drugs: esomeprazole magnesium, dexlansoprazole, omeprazole, omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate, lansoprazole, pantoprazole sodium, rabeprazole sodium and the combination product esomeprazole magnesium/naproxen. The FDA warning follows reports that PPIs given to patients who undergo stenting and other percutaneous cardiovascular events may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke. Moreover, there have been reports linking PPI use to increased risk of Clostridium difficile diarrhea. The latest alert from the FDA says physicians should consider obtaining serum magnesium levels prior to initiation of prescription PPI treatment in patients expected to be on these drugs for long periods of time.

The risk of hypomagnesemia may be greater when PPIs are given to patients who are already taking drugs that are known to deplete magnesium, including digoxin and diuretics.

CET for medical courses unlikely from this session

Proposed by the Medical Council of India (MCI), the Common Entrance Test (CET) for undergraduate and post–graduate medical courses may not be started from this session.Although officials of the Union Health Ministry and the Medical Council of India (MCI) met on Thursday to resolve their differences on the CET, sources said "it will not be feasible to start CET from this year". Now the ministry and the MCI might file a "joint affidavit in the court saying the process of consultation with the states is still on, so they may not be in a position to start CET this year". According to officials in the Health Ministry, many states have announced their medical entrance tests. "We are already in March; there has to be a uniform syllabus if we want to go ahead with the CET," officials said. Sources said the matter would again be discussed with the Health Secretary on Monday, but there was little possibility of going ahead with the CET without Tamil Nadu, the state with the maximum number of private medical colleges.

A good sex life helps you live longer

London, Jan 18 (ANI): A new study has revealed that a great sex life will not only help you feel and look younger – it will also help you live longer. Dr Eric Braverman, an anti–ageing expert from the US, has written a new book ‘Younger (Sexier) You,’ in which he says that sex not only raises your hormone –levels (so keeping you young), but can also boost your metabolism, brain function, heart health and immunity. Braverman says that coffee can help boost a flagging libido, while snacking on peanuts can enhance arousal, reports the Daily Mail. Eating brown rice can help combat sexual coldness, while avocadoes might increase your capacity for pleasure. Braverman also points to a study by Queen’s University in Belfast that suggested having sex three or more times a week reduced the risk of heart attack or stroke in men by half. Orgasms are thought to fight infection – increasing the number of infection–fighting cells by up to 20 per cent. A recent study also found that greater sexual activity in older men might protect them against prostate cancer. According to the doctor, the best aphrodisiacs are asparagus, bananas, cabbage, celery, figs, oysters and sea veggies. But it’s not just about the mechanics of sex. Healthy sexual function is also about how your brain reacts to the messages it’s receiving from your body, he adds.

When your brain is working at its peak, brain chemicals are produced and dispersed at the correct levels. A reduced sexual desire can apparently be the first sign there’s a problem with one of the four key brain chemicals – dopamine, acetylcholine, GABA and serotonin. The following spices can also boost dopamine levels: basil, black pepper, cayenne, chilli peppers, cumin, fennel, flax seeds, garlic, ginger, mustard seed, rosemary, sesame seeds, tarragon and turmeric. Spices good for boosting acetylcholine include allspice, basil, cumin, peppermint, sage, thyme and turmeric. Alcohol increases GABA – levels, but make sure you stop at one or two glasses a day – a man might not be able to maintain an erection and a woman could nod off. Good antidepressant spices for serotonin include anise, dill, marjoram, nutmeg, peppermint, saffron, spearmint and turmeric. (ANI)

Can a women with swine flu breastfed her baby?

Breastfeeding is an option if a sick mother has recovered from the virus. The risk for transmission of the virus through breast milk is unknown but is probably rare. Actively infected women who are able to express their milk for bottle feeding should let a healthy family member take over feeding. If the mother is taking an antiviral medication, she can still breastfeed, but she needs to be on the antiviral medication for a least 48 hours before.

Are you aware that NABH accreditation is mandatory for Hospitals, Dental centers, Blood banks, Eye banks and Healthcare Providers?

NABH accreditation (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers) is mandatory for Hospitals, Dental centers, Blood banks, Eye banks and Healthcare providers. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare made it mandatory for hospitals to have an NABH certification by December 2010. CHGS has already made it compulsory for hospitals to be NABH accredited if they are to be empanelled under the CHS scheme (Central Government Health Scheme). Insurance companies will tie up only with NABH–accredited hospitals.

    Infertility Update

(Dr. Kaberi Banerjee, Director Precious Baby Foundation, banerjee.kaberi@gmail.com)

What are the treatment options for infertility?

Medical treatment of infertility generally involves the use of fertility medication, medical device, surgery, or a combination of the following.

  • If the sperms are of good quality and the mechanics of the woman’s reproductive structures are good (patent fallopian tubes, no adhesions or scarring), physicians may start by prescribing a course of ovarian stimulating medication. The physician may also suggest using a conception cap cervical cap, which the patient uses at home by placing the sperm inside the cap and putting the conception device on the cervix, or intrauterine insemination (IUI), in which the doctor introduces sperm into the uterus during ovulation, via a catheter. In these methods, fertilization occurs inside the body.
  • If conservative medical treatments fail to achieve a full term pregnancy, the physician may suggest the patient undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF and related techniques (ICSI, ZIFT, and GIFT) are called assisted reproductive technology (ART) techniques. ART techniques generally start with stimulating the ovaries to increase egg production. After stimulation, the physician surgically extracts one or more eggs from the ovary, and unites them with sperm in a laboratory setting, with the intent of producing one or more embryos. Fertilization takes place outside the body, and the fertilized egg is reinserted into the woman’s reproductive tract, in a procedure called embryo transfer.
  • Other techniques are e.g. tuboplasty, assisted hatching, and preimplantation genetic diagnosis.
 
    Hepatology Update

    Medicolegal Update

(Dr Sudhir Gupta, Asso Professor, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS)

Wisconsin appellate court stated

Perfection is a standard to which no profession can possibly adhere. Doctors are required to exercise reasonable care; they are not required to be perfect.

  • In order to establish medical malpractice, it must be shown by a preponderance of evidence that the injury complained of by the patient was caused by the doing of some particular thing that a physician of ordinary skill, care, and diligence would not have done under like or similar conditions or circumstances, or by the failure or omission to do some particular thing that such a physician would have done under like or similar conditions or circumstances…The standard of care for the physician…should be that of a reasonable doctor.
  • Illinois Supreme Court refined its opinions about standard of care which in in common law is generally understood to mean a measure or rule against which a defendant’s conduct is to be measured...
  • The established standard of care for all professionals is stated as use of the same degree of knowledge, skill, and ability as an ordinarily careful professional would exercise under similar circumstances.
 
    Legal Question of the Day

(Dr. Vijay Khanagwal)

Supply of medicolegal documents to the patient, relatives & third party

Medicolegal Report (MLR)/Post–Mortem Report (PMR) is handed over only to the authorized police official (after getting receipt of the same) i.e. the Police official on whose requisition the MLR/PMR is prepared.

Copy of the MLR may be handed over to the patient/his relative, as per prevailing rules of the hospital/State and after the requisite fee has been paid by applicant. Supply of copy of MLR to third party/accused: A MLR/PMR is a report prepared by an expert and is of confidential nature and not a public document as has been held in the case State Vs Gian Singh (1981, Cr.L.J. 538) by the Hon’ble Delhi High Court. As such, an accused/third party is not entitled to get a copy of the same during the investigation stage of the case. Punjab Medical Manual & Punjab Police Rules which are followed in most of the Northern States (Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi) also prohibit supply of copy of MLR/PMR to an accused. However, a copy of the MLR or PMR may be supplied subject to fulfillment of the following:

  1. Written application is submitted by the Applicant clearly stating his/her relationship with the patient/deceased person.
  2. Requisite fee (fee prescribed by the State Govt.) is paid by the Applicant with receipt of the same enclosed with the Application.
  3. No Objection Certificate (NOC) has been obtained by the Applicant from concerned Police Station clearly stating that "Supply of copies of MLR/PMR will not affect the investigation in the particular case" is furnished by the Applicant.

Alternatively, the Applicant shall produce Order of the Court directing the Medical Officer concerned to supply him/her copy of the MLR or PMR.

Supply of copy of MLR/PMR under Right To Information (RTI) Act, 2005: Request for supply of copy of MLR or PMR under the RTI Act are not maintainable (Section 8(1) (e) & Section 8(1) (h).

Supply of original hospital record/file of the MLC: Original hospital record/file of the MedicoLegal Case (MLC) including X–ray/CT/MRI films etc. should not be handed over to the Police. However, if the Investigating Officer demands an original/photocopy of any document of a MLC, it is to be supplied and a receipt of the same must be obtained. Original copies of all medicolegal documents will be produced whenever asked for in a court of law. If the court demands X–Rays/CT scan/MRI films, Bed Head Tickets/any other record of a MLC, these should be deposited in the court and a receipt of the same be obtained.

 
    Obesity Update

Dr. Parveen Bhatia and Dr Rama Lakshmi

Prevention of Childhood Obesity: What can parents do?

After birth

  • In infancy, breastfeeding and delaying introduction of solid foods may help prevent obesity.
  • In early childhood, children should be given healthful, low–fat snacks and take part in vigorous physical activity every day. Increase fruit and vegetable intake as these are very filling and decrease satiety.
  • Older children can be taught to select healthy, nutritious foods and to develop good exercise habits.
  • Reduce television time, and particularly keeping televisions out of children’s bedrooms.

(Dr Arpan Gandhi and Dr Navin Dang)

AFP Tumor Markers

AFP is a protein produced by fetal tissue (especially the liver) and by tumors.

  • Increased AFP levels are found in the most patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. They are also found in some patients with cancer of the testes and ovaries.
  • Patients with chronic liver diseases such as cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis B must be monitored at regular intervals because they have a lifetime risk of developing liver cancer.
  • A doctor may order an AFP test, along with imaging studies, to try to detect liver cancer when it is in its earliest, and most treatable, stages. An AFP–L3% test may be ordered by some doctors to help further evaluate the risk of patients with chronic liver disease developing hepatocellular carcinoma in the near future.

An Inspirational Story
(Contributed by Dr Anupam Sethi Malhotra)

The farmer’s donkey

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the 5 simple rules to be happy:

  1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
  2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happens.
  3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.
  4. Give more.
  5. Expect less from people but more from God.

Headache cure

When my physician said that my headaches were caused by tension in my neck and shoulders, I looked around for a product that would relax those muscles. The perfect solution seemed to be a neck wrap that was designed to be cooled in the freezer or heated in the microwave.

Luckily for me, the product had clear and concise instructions, including the following: "Warning––do not microwave while on body."

5 Ways to Stop A–Salting Your Kidney

In an IMSA workshop organized at Moolchand Medcity, Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal and Dr. Ramesh Hotchandani, Senior Kidney Specialist, Moolchand Medcity, said that eating white salt is like a slow poison. If the amount of salt is reduced to less than 1 teaspoon per day, a large percentage of people with high blood pressure will become normal blood pressure patients. High salt intake via increase in blood pressure leads to kidney damage over a period of time and kidney failure. The message for the forthcoming World Kidney Day on 10th is to consume less–anything which is artificially white in feature–white sugar, white maida and white rice.

Dr. KK Aggarwal said that most people who have presence of high salt in their body will have characteristic feature of liking to both ice cold as well as boiling beverages. Over 120 doctors attended the workshop.  

5 tips to reduce salt in your diet

  1. Make reading food labels a habit. Sodium content is always listed on food labels. Sodium content can vary from brand to brand, so compare and choose the lowest sodium product. Certain foods don’t taste particularly salty but are actually high in sodium, such as cottage cheese, so it’s critical to check labels.
  2. Stick to fresh meats, fruits and vegetables rather than their packaged counterparts, which tend to be higher in sodium.
  3. Avoid spices and seasonings that contain added sodium, for example garlic salt. Choose garlic powder instead.
  4. Many restaurants list the sodium content of their products on their websites, so do your homework before dining out. Also, you can request that your food be prepared without any added salt.
  5. Try to spread your sodium intake out throughout the day; it’s easier on your kidneys than eating lots of salt all at once.
