Popular Heartburn Medication Linked to increased Stroke Risk
.⠀
Proton pump inhibitors — used widely to reduce stomach acid and treat heartburn — have been linked to an increased risk for ischemic stroke in a new study.⠀
.⠀
The Danish nationwide observational study, presented at the recent #AHA16 Scientific Sessions, showed a dose-related increased risk for ischemic stroke with all four PPIs investigated, but no increased risk with histamine-2 blockers, which are used for similar indications.⠀
.⠀
The researchers note that preclinical studies have shown PPIs reduce the production of nitric oxide leading to endothelial dysfunction, and several observational clinical studies have linked their use to cardiovascular disease. But, they say, the evidence is not yet strong enough to support stopping use of PPI drugs if they are absolutely needed.

.⠀
Doctors should review their patients on PPIs and look at why they are taking these drugs and consider whether they really need them or if they could take a lower dose. Many patients take them off label, which is a concern. Other researchers suggest that PPIs are a marker of increased risk rather than a direct cause of stroke.⠀

Traditional craft skills are helping to save the lives of children born with #heart #defects in #Bolivia.

The indigenous #Aymara women have centuries of experience of knitting and weaving distinctive woollen hats, sweaters and blankets.

Now, they are applying their expertise to a hi-tech medical product - which is used to seal up a "hole in the heart" which some babies are born with.

Bolivia is the poorest country in south America and lacks enough specialist hospitals and cardiac doctors to treat children born with heart problems. So cheap innovations are welcome.

I feel very proud of my neighbour country! ☺
