Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 16, 2019

Four of the six patients (66.6%) were female. Patients’ mean age was 2.8 years (min: 1, max: 9 years). Four epileptic encephalopathies were determined, two Lennox- Gastaut, one WWOX encephalopathy, and one undiagnosed epileptic encephalopathy. Mean time from the start of status epilepticus to start of ketogenic diet was 13.1 days (min: 8, max: 20) and mean duration of the ketogenic diet was 4.1 months (min: 1, max: 8). One patient's seizures ceased, and the seizures of two other patients decre...

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: July 27, 2019

After almost three decades of U.S. surveillance in fruit and vegetable (F&V) intake and obesity, it is important to evaluate their usefulness for monitoring prevention and health promotion efforts in public health. We used U.S. surveillance data to evaluate whether the 16-year trends of F&V intake, measured by the prevalence of eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day (FV5/day) is related to obesity trend as measured by its prevalence in the same period. We also evaluated whet...

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 22, 2019

Alopecia areata (AA) is a potentially reversible auto-immune non-scarring baldness on the scalp, which can be extended to the entire body. There are many scientific evidence as regards the impact of diet on scalp diseases related to hair growth. Diet is also able to strongly influence gut microbiome. On the contrary, few evidence reports as regards the link between microbiome, especially scalp microbiome and hair diseases. Here we reported a two case-reports study on patients affected by AA, wit...

Prolonged overnight fasting prior to surgery was advocated to reduce the risk of aspiration during or after surgery. Recent studies suggest prolonged fasting is associated with increased insulin resistance, increased acute phase stress response and decreased well-being among surgical patients. Our hypothesis is that pre-operative oral carbohydrate loading 2 hours prior to surgery is associated with improved patient reported well-being....
