    Gastrointestinal Issues and Feeding Tubes in the CHD Community

    in Health

    According to Corience: An Independent European Platform on Congenital Heart Defects, " As many as 40–60% of children with congenital heart defects are undernourished. 

    Healthy babies double their weight in 6 months; however, children with congenital heart defects put on weight more slowly. Their growth is also affected by the heart defect.

    Why do children with congenital heart disease not grow as other children do? The answer is because the heart defect makes them need more energy. Their diagnosis might also complicate feeding for several different reasons. Heart failure makes them too tired to feed. Some of them might have trouble keeping down their feeds. Others seem to have difficulty in coordinating breathing and nursing.

    This episode will investiage what kinds of equipment might be needed to help a babe with a congenital heart defect if that baby cannot nurse or feed normally. Listen as one mother shares her experience with her baby -- who needed a feeding tube. We'll also talk with a clinical psychologist who specializes in early infancy and childhood as well as eating disorders and tube feeding. She works for the NoTube Limited Liability Corporation, which was founded to help children all over the world to overcome the severe condition of tube dependency. Discover how one mother and a company over six thousand miles apart helped one little boy wean successfully from his feeding tube without ever leaving home!

    The Owners' Manual for the Human Body--HEALTH SOLUTIONS: Blood Thinners

    in Education

    THE SHOW AUDIO IS NOW AVAILABLE!! PLEASE ENJOY, SORRY FOR THE DELAY...We appreciate each of you immensely... <3

    BLOODTHINNERS”-do they really thin the blood?
    It has become common practice to give elderly human, baby aspirin daily for the purpose of thinning their blood.
    Now what does it mean:  “thinning the blood?”
    How can aspirin thin the blood? Well, it does not. What we call blood thinners are medi-sins that prevent blood from coagulating.
    What are the side effects of daily aspirin usage?
    Stomach ulcers, intestinal bleeding, increased risk of pancreatic cancer, kidney damages, eye damages…
    The benefits of blood thinning therapy taken from Dr. Mercola site;
    Study Comparing Blood-Thinning Therapies to no Antithrombotic Therapy
    • Participants included 279 patients who were diagnosed with heart failure that required diuretic therapy
    • Participants were divided into three groups, aspirin therapy, warfarin therapy and no antithrombotic therapy
    Results of the Study
    • Aspirin and warfarin didn't provide the patients with any valuable health benefits
    • There didn't appear to be any substantial differences of incidences of death, nonfatal heart attacks or nonfatal stroke in the three groups of the study
    • Patients in the aspirin group had increased chances of experiencing serious gastrointestinal problems
    • Patients in the aspirin therapy group were twice as likely as the patients in the warfarin group to face hospitalization for cardiovascular complications, particularly worsening cases of heart failure during the first 12 months following the study

    If you want to thin the blood isn’t it normal that you reach for water first?

    Getting to the Bottom of Gastrointestinal Complaints

    in Health

    On this week’s show Joyce and Mike welcome Ricky Safer (CEO) and Joanne Grieme (Board Chair) from PSC Partners Seeking a Cure, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.  PSC is a chronic liver disease where the bile ducts become impaired, eventually leading to deterioration of the liver.  It is commonly associated with inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis.
    We will discuss the difficulties patients often encounter in getting an accurate diagnosis of this condition.  Until it is properly diagnosed, it is not possible to set out a reasonable treatment plan.
    People with PSC often need a liver transplant.  One young man has had three liver transplants and is doing well.  We talk about liver transplants.
    As with so many rare diseases, the patient becomes responsible for navigating the medical system, arbitrating among the advice of many specialists, and keeping track of appointments and records.  Ricky and Joanne share what they have learned about dealing with the complexity of gastrointestinal complaints.

    The HD View - Ask Dr Goodman Show

    in Health


    Tonight our topic for discussion is “Gastrointestinal Problems in Huntington's disease”

    Also read Dr. Goodman’s article http://hddrugworks.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=341&Itemid=30

    Dr. Goodman writes, “Human study shows that inflammation in the esophagus (swallowing tube) and stomach is common and occurs more frequently in Huntington's disease (HD) as it progresses. Study also shows that individuals often do not complain. Lower GI function has not been investigated in individuals with HD, but if mouse models of HD are predictive, we can expect problems there too.  But the biggest contributor to gut distress in HD is likely due to medication side effects, less intake of water and more sedentary lifestyle as the disease progresses…”

    Ask MomRN Show: Fad Diets, Genetic Screening, Diabetes, Cancer Info

    in Family

    Each year a new fad diet comes out...gluten-free, fat-free, sugar-free, carb-free...it seems to never end! Some people try them just to jump on the latest craze, while others hope they will solve their gastrointestinal (GI) problems. Unfortunately, fad diets often lead to misdiagnosis for many people as they try to treat unpleasant GI symptoms – they may even ignore their symptoms or be too embarrassed to bring them up with their doctor. What people may not know is that they could be living with an under-recognized condition called exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, or EPI. Dr. Roshini Raj returns to the Ask MomRN Show to teach us about EPI and the danger of fad diets. Dr. Roshini Raj is a gastroenterologist at NYU Medical Center/Tisch Hospital in New York City, a Today show contributor, a bethenny contributor, the Good Day NY Medical Correspondent, and the Medical Editor of Health Magazine.
