Vitamin D and Dementia

Posted on: 29th April 2016

Did you know?

Upping your vitamin D could help stave off dementia, according to a recent study published in the journal Neurology, which found that a low blood level of vitamin D was associated with faster cognitive decline. Food sources include oily fish, fortified margarines and other products, egg yolks, and cheese.

Alternatively try a supplement.

Infantile celiac disease increasing

Posted on: 8th April 2016

What is celiac disease?

The number of children diagnosed with celiac disease, where there is a serious auto-immune reaction to dietary gluten from wheat, barley and rye, has trebled in the UK over the past twenty years.

Findings

It’s reckoned that around one per cent of all children in the UK have the disease, say researchers from the Health Improvement Network.

The greatest increase has been seen among girls under the age of eighteen, where rates have doubled between 1993 and 2012. There has been a thirty nine per cent increase in diagnoses among boys.

Differences between socio-economic groups

There was also a stark difference between socio-economic groups. Those from a deprived background were only half as likely to be diagnosed. The researchers can’t explain the disparity, but believe it could be because those from wealthier families are more likely to have the disease diagnosed.
