Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Vitamin D and cardiovascular disease: From atherosclerosis to myocardial infarction and stroke

Is your doctor testing your vitamin D levels?

Muscogiuri G, et al. – This study offers updated information on the role of vitamin D in cardiovascular health and authors tried to clarify how vitamin D is involved in the whole dynamic process from the initiation of endothelial dysfunction to the development of myocardial infarction and stroke.
  • Nowadays, studies are being conducted to clearly unveil the interesting role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis, epidemiology and prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
  • Researchers have found an association between vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) given to the relationship between low vitamin D levels and obesity, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia, endothelial dysfunction and hypertension.
  • However, no evidence successfully explains the mechanisms through which vitamin D deficiency leads from endothelial dysfunction to myocardial infarction and stroke despite the fact that vitamin D has been identified as a potentially important marker of CVD.
