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.

Dietary inflammatory potential is linked to cardiovascular disease risk burden in the US adult population

Useless piece of information unless YOU know or can find out what dietary inflammatory potential is and how to stop it. So this is all up to you. You don't really expect your doctor to actually create a diet protocol out of this, DO YOU?

Tyrovolas S, et al. – Researchers performed this study using data from the continuous National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) (2007–2012) to assess the link between dietary inflammatory potential and cardiovascular diseases risk factors (CVD–RFs) in a nationally representative sample of non–institutionalized US adults. Findings suggested an association between pro–inflammatory dietary patterns, as assessed by the DII, and increased odds for CVD–RFs in US adults aged ≥20 years. It was realized that dietary guidelines aimed at lowering the DII would be beneficial in reducing the CVD–RF burden in US adults.

Methods

  • Researchers obtained data on dietary habits and CVD-RFs (obesity; diabetes mellitus; hypertension; hypercholesterolemia) in a sample of 7880 non-institutionalized US adults aged ≥20 years.
  • They summed the total number of CVD-RFs for each individual to create a CVD-RF morbidity index (range 0-4) as the outcome variable, used both as ordinal and dichotomous (no CVD-RFs versus at least one CVD-RF) variables.

Results

  • Findings revealed that the association between the Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII) and at least one CVD-RF was dose-dependent, with participants in the 3rd and 4th quartile of DII (i.e., more pro-inflammatory dietary habits) being 1.37 (95%CI = 1.11-1.68) and 1.50 (95%CI = 1.19-1.90) times more likely, respectively, to have at least one CVD-RF, as compared to participants in the 1st quartile of DII scores.
  • In addition, researchers obtained similar results for the ordinal logistic regression using the CVD-RF morbidity index as the outcome.
