And Now for some news ….

Risk of Stroke after Manipulation in Medicare Patients

The purpose of a JMPT study was to quantify risk of stroke after chiropractic spinal manipulation, as compared to evaluation by a primary care physician, for Medicare beneficiaries aged 66 to 99 years with neck pain.

This is a retrospective cohort analysis of a 100% sample of annualized Medicare claims data on 1,157, 475 beneficiaries aged 66 to 99 years with an office visit to either a chiropractor or primary care physician for neck pain.

The Authors compared hazard of vertebrobasilar stroke and any stroke at 7 and 30 days after office visit using a Cox proportional hazards model.

The study concluded that among Medicare B beneficiaries aged 66 to 99 years with neck pain, incidence of vertebrobasilar stroke was extremely low. Small differences in risk between patients who saw a chiropractor and those who saw a primary care physician are probably not clinically significant.

Fructose Calories and Obesity

In obese Latino and African American children, restricting dietary fructose, but not calories, may decrease liver fat and the conversion of sugar to fat in the liver, a new study finds. The results were recently presented in a poster on March 5, at ENDO 2015, the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in San Diego.

Previous studies have shown that consuming high sugar — specifically fructose –is associated with liver fat accumulation and/or hypertriglyceridemia, which may increase the risk for Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

“These results suggest that the detrimental effects of fructose can be reversed by reducing fructose consumption,” said lead study author. “The conversion of sugar to fat in the liver, known as hepatic de novo lipogenesis (DNL), may be an important pathogenic mechanism leading to liver fat accumulation in children that can be reversed by fructose restriction.”

After 10 days of fructose restriction, the children’s conversion of sugar to fat declined by more than 40 percent and their liver fat decreased by more than 20 percent.

The authors support public health efforts to reduce sugar consumption.

As always, discuss all Nutritional Suggestions with your Qualified Health Care Provider.
