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.

Cashew consumption reduces total and LDL cholesterol: A randomized, crossover, controlled-feeding trial

I bet this never makes it to your diet protocol so maybe you don't need statins. Your doctor should have a diet protocol for cholesterol reduction, but I'm sure that will never occur. You're on your own to get the full article to maybe get the amounts consumed.

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Mah E, et al. – This randomized, crossover, controlled–feeding trial aimed to examine the impact of reasonable intakes of cashews on serum lipids in adults with or at risk of high LDL cholesterol. Researchers observed that the daily consumption of cashews, when substituted for a high–carbohydrate snack, might be a simple dietary strategy to help manage total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol.

Methods

  • For the purpose of this study, 51 men and women (aged 21–73 y) with a median LDL-cholesterol concentration of 159 mg/dL (95% CI: 146, 165 mg/dL) at screening consumed typical American diets with cashews (28–64 g/d; 50% of kilocalories from carbohydrate, 18% of kilocalories from protein, and 32% of kilocalories from total fat) or potato chips (control; 54% of kilocalories from carbohydrate, 18% of kilocalories from protein, and 29% of kilocalories from total fat) for 28 d with a ≥ 2-wk washout period.

Results

  • According to the findings obtained, consumption of the cashew diet brought about a significantly greater median change from baseline (compared with the control, all P < 0.05) in total cholesterol [-3.9% (95% CI: -9.3%, 1.7%) compared with 0.8% (95% CI: -1.5%, 4.5%), respectively], LDL cholesterol [-4.8% (95% CI: -12.6%, 3.1%) compared with 1.2% (95% CI: -2.3%, 7.8%), respectively], non-HDL cholesterol [-5.3% (95% CI: -8.6%, 2.1%) compared with 1.7% (95% CI: -0.9%, 5.6%), respectively], and the total-cholesterol:HDL-cholesterol ratio [-0.0% (95% CI: -4.3%, 4.8%) compared with 3.4% (95% CI: 0.6%, 5.2%), respectively].
  • The results of this study showed that there were no significant differences between diets for HDL cholesterol and triglyceride.
