Vegan Diet

Vegan Diet (history)

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products.


Presentation

  • Abstract We present a 9-month-old exclusively breast-fed baby of a strict vegetarian mother who had excluded all animal proteins from her diet.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Periodontitis
  • […] teeth were checked for demineralization of the enamel, white spots, and caries (using KaVo DIAGNOdent) with particular attention being paid to the localization of these lesions, and lastly, sounding was carried out to detect any osseous defects and periodontal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Joint Stiffness
  • The results revealed significant improvements in Visual analogue scale of pain (VAS) (p 0.005), joint stiffness (p 0.001), quality of sleep (p 0.0001), Health assessment questionnaire (HAQ) (p 0.031), General health questionnaire (GHQ) (p 0.021), and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Morning Stiffness
  • All measures of RA symptomatology decreased significantly (p 0.05), except for duration of morning stiffness (p 0.05). Weight also decreased significantly (p 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Muscular Atrophy
  • The patient's symptoms included dystrophy, weakness, muscular atrophy, loss of tendon reflexes, psychomotor regression and haematological abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Withdrawn
  • This was subsequently withdrawn at the age of 2 weeks, following a normal plasma TSH. Thyroid function tests remained normal and the goitre disappeared by the age of 2 months. Iodine deficiency is uncommon in the Western World.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Psychomotor Regression
  • The patient's symptoms included dystrophy, weakness, muscular atrophy, loss of tendon reflexes, psychomotor regression and haematological abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • […] acyclovir-resistant VZV, detections of mutations in thymidine kinase can be determined by PCR and sequence analysis MRI may be useful if myelitis or encephalitis is suspected Lumbar puncture may be helpful if signs suggest myelitis or encephalitis See Workup[emedicine.medscape.com]
Abnormal Thyroid Function Test
  • Both mother and infant had abnormal thyroid function tests. Mother was given Lugol's iodine and her thyroid function tests normalised. Her baby was initially prescribed thyroxine on the basis of the raised screening TSH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Abstract The nutritional treatment of chronic renal failure with a low-protein low-phosphorus diet (conventional low-protein diet, CLPD) is effective in reducing uremic intoxication, slowing the progression of renal failure and preventing secondary hyperparathyroidism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Despite encountering VZV infections in patients with worse expected prognosis, the OS in patients who developed VZV infection was superior to that in patients who never developed the infection [19].[heighpubs.org]

Etiology

  • There is considerable evidence that neural hypoxia, secondary to impaired endoneurial microcirculatory perfusion, is a crucial etiologic factor in diabetic neuropathy; the unfavorable impact of diabetes on hemorheology would be expected to exacerbate[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic evidence, reinforced by clinical and laboratory studies, shows that the rich Western diet is the major underlying cause of death and disability (e.g, from cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes) in Western industrialized[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology The host immunologic mechanisms suppress replication of the virus. Reactivation can occur if host immune mechanisms are compromised.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Prevention

  • Abstract The aim of these studies was to evaluate the potential of some nutritional approaches to prevent or reduce the body load of organochlorines (OC) in humans.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
