Dr. Munavvar Izhar Discusses the Implications of Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD) a.k.a. Diabetic Nephropathy for Patients

Dr. Munavvar Izhar

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Diabetic Nephropathy is one of the most common and serious complications of Diabetes Mellitus and can lead to kidney failure needing Dialysis, and Transplant greatly impacting the quality of life of patients, families, and community at large. The burden of kidney disease, Dialysis, and Transplant has huge implications on the health and the health budget of the nation.

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic medical conditions not only in the United States but the world over. In some countries, it is almost an epidemic proportion. Therefore, it is important for everyone to understand the disease and its eventual inherent complications. Dr. Munavvar Izhar is here to review what diabetic nephropathy is and how it impacts individuals and families.

Dr. Munavvar Izhar Discusses: What Is Diabetic Nephropathy?
Diabetic Nephropathy is one of the serious complications that can develop in patients with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Diabetes over many years affects the blood vessels in the entire body thereby predisposing a patient to strokes and brain damage, Heart attacks and Heart disease, Blindness, and Retinal disease. It also causes Diabetic Nephropathy and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) which can be with or without renal insufficiency leading to the need for Dialysis or Transplantation. It also causes Erectile Dysfunction and Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) which can lead to gangrene and amputations. Furthermore, according to Dr. Munavvar Izhar, these complications and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) can be treated, delayed, or prevented.

When someone suffers from diabetic nephropathy, this impacts the ability of the kidneys to perform their usual task optimally. It is the job of the kidneys to remove waste products in the body and excrete them in the urine. If someone develops diabetic nephropathy, this condition in most cases will slowly damage the kidneys over an extended period of time (over the course of years). According to Dr. Munavvar Izhar, eventually, this could lead to kidney failure, which is also called End-stage kidney disease or End-stage Renal disease (ESKD or ESRD). Treating Diabetes optimally, Delaying or Preventing the complications of Diabetes will significantly reduce the burden of Diabetic Nephropathy, DKD, and thereby the need for Dialysis or Transplantation.

Dr. Munavvar Izhar Discusses: the Symptoms of Diabetic Nephropathy
According to Dr. Munavvar Izhar, the sooner this condition is diagnosed, the faster it can be treated. Therefore, it is important for everyone to understand some of the most common signs and symptoms of diabetic nephropathy. These include:

– Blood pressure that is challenging to control in a diabetic patient.
– The presence of protein in the urine, which could make the urine appear foamy.
– Swelling that is located around the eyes, hands, feet, and ankles.
– Fatigue and trouble focusing on work or at school.
– Increased urinary frequency.
– Issues related to nausea, vomiting, and a reduced appetite.
– Shortness of breath.
– Black veil or flashing light appearing in the eyes or marked decline in the vision of a diabetic patient.

According to Dr. Munavvar Izhar, all of these could be possible signs of diabetic nephropathy. It is important to rely on a trained medical professional who can diagnose the condition quickly. Dr. Izhar’s recommendation is to follow up with a primary care doctor and to get an “Early” referral to a nephrologist as soon as possible. Dr. Munavvar Izhar heavily emphasizes early referral to a nephrologist as it has tremendous health care implications for the patient and also the cost of care involved later on. Statistics reveal that on a national and global scale it has a tremendous impact on the health outcomes of patients.

Dr. Munavvar Izhar Discusses: The Prevention of Diabetic Nephropathy
Diabetic nephropathy is one of the most serious complications of diabetes. The good news is that there are ways to prevent diabetic nephropathy. The most important preventative measure when it comes to diabetic nephropathy involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Munavvar Izhar knows that this can be difficult; however, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also be lifesaving for individuals with diabetes. This means that everyone with diabetes needs to make sure that they eat mindfully, consciously, healthily, and do physical activity on a regular basis. Dr. Munavvar Izhar has a blog that involves Mindful and Conscious living, Nutrition & Dietetic Fitness, and Physical Fitness (https://drmunavvarizhar.medium.com/). Dr. Izhar has helped numerous patients with education in diet and Nutrition and not only helps them lose excess weight but to keep it off for numerous years thereby offering a healthy lifestyle bereft of medications. With the right plan in place from Dr. Munavvar Izhar, this serious complication of diabetes (DKD) can be prevented through maintenance of optimum weight, eating right, physical fitness, and Mindful/Conscious living in addition to drugs if needed.

Sombudha Adhikari Talks COVID-19: How Far Are We From A Vaccine?

Sombudha Adhikari

What Sombudha Adhikari Wants You To Know About Coronavirus Vaccine Development

WHITEHOUSE STATION, NJ, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The coronavirus has changed the world, and many people are anxious to know when a coronavirus vaccine will be available. Sombudha Adhikari, an expert in the biomechanics of COVID-19 vaccine development, is sharing the latest in coronavirus vaccine research.

According to Sombudha Adhikari, a coronavirus vaccine would work by introducing a weakened version of the coronavirus into the bloodstream. Then, the body would be forced to develop antibodies to the coronavirus. This would work to make the body much less likely to develop COVID-19 when exposed to the virus in day to day life.

More than 100 possible vaccines are currently under development across the world, according to Sombudha Adhikari. Even after a vaccine is proven to be effective, it's vital that the vaccine undergoes rigorous testing. Sombudha Adhikari says that this can take up to 18 months after the vaccine development is complete.

According to Sombudha Adhikari, vaccines typically take more than a decade to become ready for public use, due to rigorous, in-depth studies that need to be done to ensure that the vaccine is safe. Due to the pandemic, healthcare organizations are speeding up the process as much as the can. Sombudha Adhikari says that when a vaccine is ready, the public will be able to trust that it has been through all of the necessary testing processes to ensure it's safety.

Since COVID-19 only came to light in late 2019, researchers are still working hard to learn all that the can about the virus. Many scientists are using the information we know about Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) to gain insight into the creation of a coronavirus vaccine. According to Sombudha Adhikari, these illnesses are coronaviruses similar to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

Some of the vaccines that are currently being developed use mRNA, which instructs cells to make the protein that allows the coronavirus to enter human cells. This can force the cells to act as if they've already been infected, providing some immunity against the virus, according to Sombudha Adhikari. Other vaccines currently under development use DNA to trigger the body's immune response to a weakened version of the coronavirus.

Sombudha Adhikari says that it's possible that the coronavirus may be seasonal, much like the flu. While it may take some time to fully develop an effective coronavirus vaccine, the vaccine will prove to be incredibly valuable if COVID-19 comes and goes in waves. The downtime between cycles of the virus can allow time for people to get vaccinated and build immunity.

Venture Firm Expands Virtual Team to Mine Untapped Opportunities in SoCal and Beyond

While Silicon Valley relies on well-worn networks, early stage venture firm takes a fresh approach to cultivating transformative deep tech innovations

Most venture capitalists go for what’s easy: software, consumer products. But if you know what you’re doing, exciting opportunities can be found in places overlooked by traditional VC.”

— Krisztina “Z” Holly

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — LOS ANGELES, October 19, 2020 — The key to thriving as a venture capital investor in a post-pandemic world is to focus on the undiscovered and the undervalued, Krisztina “Z” Holly says.

Today, early stage venture capital firm Good Growth Capital formally announced that Holly joined their firm as West Coast Venture Partner, along with new Advisor Robert Poor, Ph.D. She just led the firm’s first deal from SoCal, Ateios, after working with the fund for the last year and a half sourcing and evaluating deals and supporting their portfolio companies around the country. Ateios has developed the first flexible, paper-thin customizable batteries—a key enabler for new technologies like wearable medical devices and low-cost IoT sensors. The company was founded by two UC San Diego graduate students.

“Most venture capitalists go for what’s easy to wrap their heads around: software, consumer products, the over-confident young founder who has already launched three startups,” Holly said. “But if you know what you’re doing, the most exciting opportunities can be found in places overlooked by traditional VC. There’s undiscovered commercial potential in the academic research and diverse talent here in SoCal and elsewhere around the country.”

She notes while other firms continue to trod the well-worn venture path in Silicon Valley, Boston and New York, she sees a motherlode of potential from less familiar sources: research labs, overlooked geographies, and experienced innovators who have deep industry expertise but don’t always fit the stereotype of tech entrepreneur.

An MIT-trained engineer, serial entrepreneur, and former Vice Provost for Innovation at USC, Holly has been investing in early stage transformative science innovators for nearly two decades, building centers at MIT and USC that cultivated and launched 39 venture-backed startups. She joins GGC as their first Venture Partner in the Southwest.

Also joining the team from Los Angeles, as an advisor, Poor adds, “I’m consistently impressed by Good Growth Capital’s deep experience, positive ethos and genuine willingness to help highly technical founders at a stage I don’t see with other venture capital firms.” Poor was co-founder of Ember Corporation (bought by SiliconLabs), creator of the ZigBee wireless networking protocol, and founder and chairman of Cool Energy World.

The timing is apt, as Good Growth Capital just launched their third fund, a $100M seed/series A fund that focuses on deep tech startups. And in January, they capped and closed their Infinite Corridor Fund, which helps de-risk diverse MIT-affiliated and transformative science pre-seed/seed startups and serves as a sourcing fund. GGC is picking up the pace while seed investing around the U.S. has sharply declined by more than 50%, according to the National Venture Capital Association, and as other venture funds are forced to shift focus during the pandemic and revert to their traditional networks.

Universities are a promising but untapped source of opportunity. According to the National Science Foundation, universities perform nearly half of all basic research in the U.S. In 2018, the federal government invested $71 billion in academic research, and since the Bayh-Dole Act in 1980, universities have had the right to patent and license those innovations. The top two regions in terms of university patenting, by far, are Massachusetts (500 patents in 2015) and Southern California (485, 388 of those from Los Angeles), according to the Alliance for SoCal Innovation, and SoCal universities do more than $7 billion in research annually. A 2018 Boston Consulting Group study of innovation ecosystems identified SoCal as the likely next major global tech ecosystem. Despite having more major research universities than anywhere else in the U.S., the region still only attracts one-tenth the venture capital of Silicon Valley, according to PwC/CB Insights’ MoneyTree report.

But evaluating and building transformative science and engineering startups is not easy. Fortunately, the team at GGC isn’t afraid to roll up its sleeves and has been honing its chops in deep tech ventures for nearly two decades. Founding Managing Partners Maureen Stancik Boyce, Ph.D. and Amy Salzhauer started working together in 2000, building companies and commercializing university research. The five managing partners of the firm (including David Mendez, John Osborne and Carolyne LaSala) collectively have helped found 18 startups worth billions of dollars.

Their approach and experience is paying off; Good Growth’s General Fund I is in the top decile in most key metrics among funds of the same vintage. Although the firm doesn't have a specific mandate for diversity, more than 70% of their portfolio comprises women- and minority-led companies. According to a 2018 Boston Consulting Group Study, diverse leadership teams lead to more innovation and nearly double the revenues from new products.

“One of Good Growth’s secret weapons is our powerful virtual network of Venture Partners and Advisors, who have strategic connections, deep operating experience and the science and engineering knowledge essential to cultivating our amazing portfolio,” said Stancik Boyce. “Although we’re headquartered in South Carolina and Massachusetts, our network has always given us unique access to geographically and demographically diverse deals, talent and partnerships. It’s what enables us to thrive during this pandemic.”

“Z and Robert’s extensive deep tech backgrounds mean they have a quick grasp of game-changing innovations and can really dive in to build value,” Salzhauer said. “We’re excited to have these industry veterans on board supporting our portfolio and expanding our reach into SoCal and beyond.”

About Good Growth Capital
Good Growth Capital is an early stage venture capital firm known for its exceptional expertise in finding, cultivating and assessing complex science and technology start-ups. Formed by a team of experienced operators, our strong capacity for understanding early stage science and technology investments enables us to invest well at an earlier stage than most venture capital firms, giving us priority access to high-performing investment opportunities. We invest in seed stage and Series A deals through our General Fund family and in pre-seed and seed stage companies through our Infinite Corridor Fund, which primarily targets MIT-affiliated and transformative science start-ups. GGC is majority women and minority-owned and is uniquely positioned geographically in both the Southeast and New England.

Gastric cancer research points to new treatment strategies

Dr. McLeod

Patients with increased tumor lymphocytes show longer survival potential

We are gradually putting together important pieces of the treatment puzzle for this common killer.”

— Dr. Yijing He

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gastric cancer research points to new treatment strategies. Patients with increased tumor lymphocytes show longer survival potential.

New medical research into the treatment of gastric cancer has shown promise and opens up opportunities for new combination therapies to treat stomach cancer, according to Dr. Howard McLeod, medical director of Tampa’s Geriatric Oncology Consortium and a professor at the University of South Florida Taneja College of Pharmacy.

Gastric cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the world, with more than one million cases per year. Combination chemotherapy is the primary treatment.

McLeod and a team of researchers from Xiangya Hospital, Central South University in Changsha, China recently published new findings of impact on this topic.

The paper, “High levels of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes showed better clinical outcomes in FOLFOX-treated gastric cancer patients,” was published in Futuremedicine.com.

“The study examined the outcomes of 129 patients receiving the most commonly used chemotherapies for advanced stomach cancer. The study asked the question, ‘Is the number of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes found to be associated with a patient’s survival?’” said McLeod.

A lymphocyte is a type of white blood cell that is part of the immune system.

The research observed that patients with a higher number of ‘activated’ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes had longer survival than those with lower amounts in the tumor (53 months vs 27 months), independent of gender or tumor stage.

McLeod said, “the human body mounts a response to cancer, deploying the tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes.”

The research team also recently discovered that the heart drug Propanolol can cause an increase in the number of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes in cancer. This has led to clinical trials that combine the tumor lymphocyte infiltrating qualities of Propanolol with the standard chemotherapy to treat the stomach cancer.

“We are gradually putting together important pieces of the treatment puzzle for this common killer,” said Yijing He MD, PhD, an associate professor at Xiangya Hospital.

Risk factors for stomach cancer include an immediate family member with stomach cancer, a diet high in smoked and salted foods and low in fruits and vegetables, smoking, and existing medical conditions to include stomach infections, Pernicious Anemia, chronic stomach inflammation, and gastric polyps.

McLeod is a world-class researcher in pharmacogenetics, also referred to as Precision Medicine. Pharmacogenetics is a branch of genetics that addresses how our genetic code influences how we respond to drug therapies.

Virginia Hurdon Health Coaching to be Featured on Close Up Radio

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The culture of medicine encourages health professionals to ignore their own needs. Physicians in training spend long hours on call. They work when they’re tired; they work when their sick. It's implied that their needs are less important than the needs of the people they serve.

Unfortunately, this kind of dedication, while commendable, is ultimately unsustainable.

Dr. Virginia Hurdon had spent over 20 years practicing palliative medicine when her health deteriorated to the point she was forced to retire from medicine. When she recovered, she realized she still wanted to serve people and help them in a more positive way.

Virginia Hurdon Health Coaching specializes in helping health care practitioners to connect to their optimal mental and physical health.

“Healthcare practitioners are not very good at self-care,” says Virginia, “but health is about thriving, vitality. It's not just about not being sick. There is an opportunity for growth and enhanced wellbeing to live a healthy quality of life.”

Virginia found her way back to that healthy quality of life through functional medicine, which looks at illness through the lens of nutrition, movement, stress management, sleep, social connection, play. All of those things directly impact our health.
.
Virginia says health coaching principles also truly changed her for the better, not just in terms of her physical health, but also her more optimistic outlook on life and compassion for herself.

“I took a fairly holistic approach when I was doing palliative care because terminal illness and dying touches every aspect of your life and your family,” says Virginia. “Now I get to form relationships with people that are extremely positive. They're forward moving. They're about self-discovery for the person who's being coached and they're moving towards their own goals and aspirations.”

Virginia says partnering with someone who wants to make changes to their health and encouraging them to discover their own solutions is much more effective than telling people what to do.

“I'm not acting as a doctor. It's not about telling people what to do. People generally already know what they need to do, especially health care practitioners. So it's more about helping them to develop their self-confidence and their motivation and their vision for what it would look like to be completely healthy.”

Perhaps every person should have a primary care physician and also a certified health coach.

“I'm proud of my clients who have taken steps towards better wellness. It's work, it's not always easy. There are always setbacks, but when you learn to overcome those challenges, you become much more adept at learning to change on your own.”

SAINT PAUL, MN, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — ISO-Aire™ clean air technology introduces a breakthrough commercial RSF500 model that is right-sized for mid to smaller office spaces and business locations. With a 500 CFM output (cubic feet per minute), the portable RSF500 houses the same unmatched medical-grade air filtration components as the ISO-Aire 2,000, 1,000, and 750 CFM models.

Housed inside each ISO-Aire unit are up to three levels of proven filtration protection to help capture and destroy 99.99% of potentially harmful airborne pathogens and indoor pollutants:
• A HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter captures 99.99% of airborne particles up to .3 microns; effective in removing viruses, bacteria, pollen, dust, VOCs, and mold to help offer relief especially to those managing respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies;
• Bipolar ionization works in two strategic ways to capture and destroy microscopic pathogens and contaminants; helps reduce odors;
• UVC sterilization inactivates the DNA/RNA of pathogens, reducing their ability to infect human cells.

“Unmatched ISO-Aire is well-suited to effectively protect any business, school or home as we continue to look for solutions to safeguard against harmful COVID-19 transmission and other airborne pathogens,” explained Chuck Albers, developer of ISO-Aire and owner of parent company Ducts & Cleats. “Customers can breathe easier knowing our ISO-Aire line of clean air technology delivers proven mitigation strategies that exceed the minimum requirements for indoor air quality established by ASHRE and the Centers for Disease Control.” Developed in early 2020 to provide sanitized air in hospital rooms, ISO-Aire launched into commercial applications last June and debuted its residential product line in September.

Albers noted his experienced team of HVAC and air quality experts work closely with customers to assess their needs and their workspace to ensure the most effective ISO-Aire solution is installed to protect occupants with clean air 24/7. Two recent customer examples include:

LuminFire PREPARES TO REOPEN WITH CLEAN AIR IN PLACE: RSP750
At LuminFire, a Minneapolis software engineering company, CEO Tim Cimbura is looking forward to the day he can fully reopen his office and once again work shoulder to shoulder with talented employees and host clients for special gatherings. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the LuminFire team has adapted well to a remote work style, but Cimbura notes that nothing compares to connecting in-person to collaborate and innovate.

"We value providing a healthy and safe environment for our employees, clients and guests, and this has never been more important than during a global pandemic," Cimbura explained. "While many of our employees have chosen to work from home, protecting those who still need to work from the office is important. In order to offer our employees and guests the protection they need, we’ve installed the ISO-Aire RSP750 in our Minneapolis office."

TOGETHER AGAIN…SAFELY. MILLERS LANDING SENIOR LIVING: RSF1000

So, when the facilities and community development teams were looking to add a layer of indoor air protection in the building's popular Activities Room they installed an ISO-Aire RSF1000 for larger spaces. Having safe, purified air circulating throughout the area where residents congregate to enjoy meals, play games, and watch movies offers peace of mind, enables resident interaction, and sparks deeper engagement.

"Our tight knit community prides itself on fostering a strong sense of proactive support and togetherness. During COVID-19, the ability for our residents to gather safely for meals as well as movie and Bingo nights in the Activities Room has been a welcome and reassuring addition," explained Cheryl Locke, Community Director, Millers Landing.

Millers Landing is the first senior living facility to proactively purify the indoor air with ISO-Aire clean air technology, utilizing a RSF1000 model.

ISO-Aire RSF500 New Product Specs:
ISO-Aire RSF500 – developed with performance and convenience in mind – is floor set and built on wheels for mobility. The powerful unit can be engineered with up to three levels of medical-grade components including HEPA filtration (99.99% to .3 microns), ozone-free bipolar ionization, and/or UVC sterilization to help capture and destroy 99.99% of microscopic airborne contaminants.
