Endocrine Society issues Hypertriglyceridemia Guidelines

  • The Endocrine Society Guideline for the assessment of patients with hypertriglyceridemia recommends that the diagnosis be based on fasting triglyceride levels.
  • At least every 5 years, adults should be screened for hypertriglyceridemia as part of a lipid panel.
  • To facilitate assessment of cardiovascular risk, mild and moderate hypertriglyceridemia, defined as triglyceride levels of 150 to 999 mg/dL, should be diagnosed, as this condition may be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
  • Patients with severe and very severe hypertriglyceridemia, defined as triglyceride levels of more than 1000 mg/dL, should be considered to be at risk for pancreatitis.
  • Patients with hypertriglyceridemia should undergo evaluation for secondary causes of hyperlipidemia, such as endocrine conditions and medications, and treatment should be focused on such secondary causes.
  • Patients with primary hypertriglyceridemia should be assessed for a family history of dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease, as well as for other cardiovascular risk factors including central obesity, hypertension, abnormalities of glucose metabolism, and liver dysfunction.
  • For patients with moderate hypertriglyceridemia, the treatment goal should be a non–high–density lipoprotein cholesterol level in agreement with NCEP–ATP guidelines.
  • For patients with mild to moderate hypertriglyceridemia, first–line therapy should be lifestyle interventions including physical activity. A combination of diet modification and pharmacotherapy may also be considered.
  • For patients with moderate to severe hypertriglyceridemia, treatment with fibrates, niacin, and/or omega-3 fatty acids alone or in combination with statins should be considered.
  • A fibrate should be used as a first–line agent in patients with severe or very severe hypertriglyceridemia, in addition to reduction of dietary fat and simple carbohydrate intake.
  • Statins should not be used as monotherapy for severe or very severe hypertriglyceridemia, but they may be useful for the treatment of moderate hypertriglyceridemia when indicated to modify cardiovascular risk.

    Constipation Update

How does chronic constipation affect quality of life for a patient?

Chronic constipation has been associated with considerable impairment in quality of life as it can be physically and mentally troublesome for many patients, and can significantly interfere with their daily living and well-being. Individuals with constipation have higher medical care (outpatient and emergency) use, which leads to large individual healthcare costs, and represents a burden to healthcare delivery systems.

Docs can prevent car crashes among elderly

Physicians’ warnings to patients that they are potentially unfit to drive can prevent car crashes, researchers reported. The annual rate of car accidents among patients who were so warned fell about 45% in the year after the doctor’s intervention, compared with the 3 years before, according to Donald Redelmeier, MD, of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, and colleagues in the Sept. 27 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Blood and blood components are vital to the health care system of a country

Patients with thalassemia, hemophilia, anemia and leukemia require regular blood transfusions. Blood is also required in cases of accidents and surgical operations. Obviously the question arises as to wherefrom all the blood comes and also how are we going to cope up with the load of growing demands and requirements. The only way is to request and motivate more and more of volunteers to come forward and they pour out their small Ahuties in this Maha Yagna of Voluntary Blood Donation Movement.

    An Inspirational Story (Ms Ritu Sinha)

What goes around comes around

One day a man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.

Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you. He said, "I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson."

Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt. As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just passing through. She couldn’t thank him enough for coming to her aid.

Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped. Bryan never thought twice about being paid. This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way. He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Bryan added, "And think of me."

He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the twilight. A few miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas pumps. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase. The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan.

After the lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be. Then she noticed something written on the napkin.

There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: "You don’t owe me anything. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: Do not let this chain of love end with you." Under the napkin were four more $100 bills.

Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress made it through another day. That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard… She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, "Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, Bryan Anderson."

There is an old saying "What goes around comes around."

  Quote of the Day (Dr GM Singh)

Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. Viktor E. Frankl

 
    Legal Question of the Day (Dr M C Gupta)

Q. The government of Uttar Pradesh has not granted permission for doing autopsies in government medical colleges while the autopsies are routinely being carried out by MBBS doctors employed in the Provincial Medical Service in UP. What should be done?

Ans.

  • This is unusual. There must be some reason. It is for the medical college faculty to find the reason.
  • Performing an autopsy for the police is work done for the police. Redressal of a wrong can be asked only when a wrong has been done or a right has been denied. Medical college faculty cannot demand work from the police department.
  • The government medical college faculty has a right to demand autopsy work if as per the terms and conditions of service, the job of the faculty involves performing, supervising and teaching how to do autopsies. It is a right of the faculty to demand autopsy work for which it was employed. To secure this right, the faculty should send a proper legally drafted representation to the government, on the basis of which a writ petition may be filed if the government does not act.
  • The above representation/writ petition should be so drafted as to include the MCI as a party because it is the MCI which inspects medical colleges and grants them recognition.

Aerobic exercise reduces risk of diabetes in kids

Currently, about one–third of elementary school aged children are overweight or obese, which increases their risk for chronic diseases, especially diabetes. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that just 20 minutes of exercise per day could reduce kids’ risk of developing risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The study looked at the effect of regular aerobic exercise on insulin resistance (the body’s inability to use insulin, the hormone that helps the body use sugar), abdominal obesity, and overall body fat, all known risk factors for diabetes, in 200 overweight or obese American kids. Results showed that both 20 and 40 minute bouts of exercise 5 times per week resulted in reduced insulin resistance and decreases in overall fat and abdominal fat. These findings were consistent across all races in both boys and girls. Ideally, children should exercise at least 60 minutes per day most days of the week.

(Dr Sudhir Gupta, Additional Prof, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS)

What is embalming?

Embalming is the process of chemically treating a dead body developed by the ancient Egyptians of preserving a person’s body after death to delay the decomposition of the body, restore it to an acceptable physical appearance and reduce the presence and growth of bacteria to prevent foul smell as well as perfume or add fragrance to corpse. Embalming certificate is required by law in certain circumstances like air/rail transportation.

  • The process of embalming has a very long history, dating back to the Egyptian process of mummification. Though their techniques were quite different from those used today, the effect was the same — to preserve an individual’s body after death. The ancient Egyptians believed that the spirit would return to the body after death, so it must remain in good condition. To preserve the corpses, they covered bodies in a drying chemical called natron, and then wrapped them in linen sheets.
  • Today, embalming is done by injecting chemicals directly into the bloodstream to preserve the corpse’s appearance. The most commonly used chemicals for embalming are formaldehyde and ethanol. A combination of these two chemicals is sufficient to preserve the body for a short time i.e. up to a week.
  • To keep the corpse in a good condition for a longer period i.e. up to a month, a solution made up almost entirely of formaldehyde is used.
  • There are several steps involved in modern embalming. First, the embalming fluid is injected directly into the deceased’s blood vessels, and pushed through the body with a mechanical pump. Next, the internal organs are hollowed of their contents and filled with embalming fluid. The chemicals are then injected beneath the skin wherever necessary, followed by a final surface embalming on injured areas of the body.
  • One of the most famous embalmed corpses today is that of Russian communist leader Vladimir Lenin, whose embalmed corpse is on display at the Red Square mausoleum in Moscow. The corpse is very well-preserved, and should last for at least another hundred years.

Prevention strategy relies on lifestyle

Stenting may not always be the answer to treating heart disease with stable angina said Padma Shri and Dr B C Roy National Awardee Dr K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and MTNL Perfect Health Mela.

A German study has shown that patients with stable coronary artery disease who were put on an exercise regimen had significantly higher rates of event–free survival than those who had undergone percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In the study, 70% of patients in the exercise program had event–free survival –– no stroke, heart attack, or death –– compared with 50% of stented patients after four years.

Exercise is an important part of any type of prevention, and it should be instituted for "anyone with stable coronary heart disease."

The study on stenting versus exercise come was a continuation of a pilot study first reported in 2004 in the journal Circulation. That study of 101 male patients found that after one year, 88% of patients who exercised had event-free survival compared with 70% of stented patients.

The updated data reflect an additional 100 patients, who performed moderate intensity exercise for two weeks under hospital supervision, and then were given an exercise bike to continue their regimen at home.

Patients with stable angina exercised at 80% of their threshold, and that after four weeks of exercising, their angina threshold increased.

The clear message for patients is to get 30 to 60 minutes of moderate–intensity aerobic activity every day, noting that 30% of heart disease could be prevented by 2.5 hours of walking per week.
