Vitamin D toxicity is extremely rare. This is due to the mechanism of the toxicity. Vitamin D itself is not toxic. The toxicity result from the high calcium levels caused by high vitamin D.
Vitamin D toxicity is rarely seen. This is even more so in post-weight loss surgical, duodenal switch patients.
There are concerns with Vitamin D supplementations. However, some have also raised concerns about Vitamin D toxicity.
Vitamin D is recognized to be critical in several physiologic functions. Therefore more attention should be given to supplementation and normal level maintaince.
Weight loss surgical procedures improve different aspects of metabolic syndrome. Therefore patients with a number of comorbidities and obesity may benefit better from weight loss surgery.
The human gut microbiota is a complex and dynamic microbial community that is integral to the maintenance of health and the regulation of the host immune system.
The gut microbiome is made of the aggregate collection of genomes. This includes genes contained in its commensal viruses, bacteria, fungi, and Eukarya. Together, these mi- croorganisms are known as the gut microbiota. Although at times, the term microbiota is used to specifically refer to the bacterial communities within this complex consortium.
Chronic Proton Pump Inhibitor Usage can result in malabsorption. This is important to bear in mind since some patient after sleeve take PPI.
The oxygen dissociation curve is the model how the exygen delivery takes place at cellular level. This is dependent on a number of varaibles. These included temp, Ph, 2,3 DPG and CO2.
Subject-specific pulse oxygen saturation response has been investigated. This allows for specific conditons to be dtudied. Therfore, better oxygen delivery can be tailored for specific conditions.
