Extractions: IL 10-99-004 In Reply Refer To: 13 March 5, 1999 UNDER SECRETARY FOR HEALTH'S INFORMATION LETTER RESPIRATORY DISEASES IN FORMER NAVY DECK GRINDERS 1. This letter calls attention to a concern that some veterans, who served as deck grinders on aircraft carriers in the Navy during the 1970s through the 1990s, may have unrecognized, misdiagnosed occupational lung disease. Reevaluation of a Navy veteran who had been involved in grinding antiskid materials on aircraft carrier decks resulted in a change of diagnosis from sarcoidosis to pneumoconiosis. This case led to a study by staff of the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) which found an increased risk for diagnosis of sarcoidosis, especially for African-Americans, associated with service on aircraft carriers. Conversely, another paper reported a decreased risk for a diagnosis of sarcoidoisis in Navy veterans who had served only on "clean ships." 2. Navy veterans who are concerned about possible misdiagnosis of pneumoconiosis as pulmonary sarcoidosis or who have other pulmonary problems possibly related to hazardous exposures in service are being invited to enroll to receive Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care. It is recommended that VA facilities provide the following services to veterans who may have occupational lung disease: a.

Extractions: Section 3: Aetiology and risk factors Retinal vein occlusion is due to thrombosis of retinal veins (central, hemi or branch) . Established cardiovascular risk factors are the predominant medical associations for both central and branch vein occlusions and are summarised below and include differentiation by age and ethnic groups. ( See table 1 Strength of evidence Hypertension This is the predominant risk factor with up to 64% of patients having hypertension ( Table 1 ) in the older age group (more than 50 years). This is more prevalent in BRVO than CRVO. A new diagnosis or uncontrolled hypertension is a common finding. Inadequately controlled hypertension is associated with recurrence of RVO in the same eye or fellow eye involvement. Diabetes mellitus Diabetes mellitus ( table 1 ) is associated with retinal vein occlusion. This may be due to an increase of other cardiovascular risk factors (e.g. 70% of type II diabetics are hypertensive). Glaucoma Current evidence suggests an association between central retinal vein occlusion and glaucoma. One study suggests that BRVO is associated with glaucoma Thrombophilia Factor V Leiden and other such abnormalities have been implicated in RVO but their aetiology is unclear. Deficiency or abnormal activity of various factors have been identified in patients with RVO including protein S,C, anti-thrombin 3, activated protein C resistance, hyperhomocysteinaemia and the presence of lupus anticoagulant or anti-cardiolipin antibody deficiency.

Dietary Supplement Fact Sheet: Folate diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, asthma, sarcoidoisis,primary biliary cirrhosis, and inflammatory bowel disease 62. http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/folate.asp
Extractions: Folate gets its name from the Latin word "folium" for leaf. A key observation of researcher Lucy Wills nearly 70 years ago led to the identification of folate as the nutrient needed to prevent the anemia of pregnancy. Dr. Wills demonstrated that the anemia could be corrected by a yeast extract. Folate was identified as the corrective substance in yeast extract in the late 1930s, and was extracted from spinach leaves in 1941. Folate helps produce and maintain new cells [ ]. This is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth such as infancy and pregnancy. Folate is needed to make DNA and RNA, the building blocks of cells. It also helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer [ ]. Both adults and children need folate to make normal red blood cells and prevent anemia [
Folic Acid Molecule -- B Complex Vitamin diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, asthma, sarcoidoisis,primary biliary cirrhosis, and inflammatory bowel disease (52). http://www.worldofmolecules.com/supplements/folic_acid.htm
Extractions: Home Supplements The Folic Acid Molecule Vitamin Bc Folic acid (the anion form is called folate ) is a B-complex vitamin (once called vitamin M ) that is important in preventing neural tube defects (NTDs) in the developing human fetus. Since the discovery of the link between insufficient folic acid and NTDs, governments and health organisations worldwide have made recommendations concerning folic acid supplementation for women intending to become pregnant. For example, the US Public Health service (see the URL given at page foot) recommends an extra 0.4mg/day, which can be taken as a pill. However, many researchers believe that supplementation in this way can never work effectively enough since not all pregnancies are planned and not all women will comply with the recommendation. This has led to the introduction in many countries of fortification , where folic acid is added to flour with the intention of everyone benefiting from the associated raise in blood folate levels. This is not uncontroversial, with issues having been raised concerning individual liberty, and the masking effect of folate fortification on B12 deficiency or pernicious anaemia . However, most North and South American countries now fortify their flour, along with a number of Middle Eastern countries and Indonesia. Mongolia and a number of ex-Soviet republics are amongst those having widespread voluntary fortification; about five more countries (including Morocco, the first African country) have agreed but not yet implemented fortification. The UK has recently decided not to fortify, mainly because of the B12 concern; indeed, no EU country has yet fortified.

Menstrual Disorders According to some evidence, the four major causes of primary amenorrhea (in which a woman has never had a period) are the following: ovarian failure (48.5% of cases of amenorrhea); born with no uterus and vagina (15.2%); deficiencies in reproductive hormones, such as in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (8.3%); and delayed puberty (6%). Until recently, the great majority of these women were unable to become pregnant. Advances in reproductive techniques, however, are enabling many to have children. There are many causes of secondary amenorrhea, including eating disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and a number of medications and medical conditions.

Media CFS Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Diagnosing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome is based on the presence of unexplained exhaustion that is not improved by sleep or rest, persists for three to six months, and causes an all-over weakness and lack of energy so severe that it interferes with normal living. The first step in diagnosing chronic fatigue syndrome is to rule out any underlying conditions, including psychological disorders, that may be contributing to the problem. Some of the other illnesses that can cause excessive fatigue are: hypothyroidism, anemia, Lyme disease, and chronic hepatitis. (See the differential diagnosis below.) 1994 Revised Case Definition Of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Major Criteria A case of chronic fatigue syndrome must include the presence of the following: 1. Clinically evaluated, unexplained, persistent, or relapsing chronic fatigue that is of new or definite onset (has not been lifelong); is not the result of ongoing exertion; is not substantially alleviated by rest; and results in substantial reduction in previous levels of occupational, educational, social, or personal activities.
