New Study Shows Overtreating Patients for Hypothyroidism Could Raise Their Risk of Stroke

Too Much of a Good Thing? New Study Shows Overtreating Patients for Hypothyroidism Could Raise Their Risk of Stroke

For patients who take medication to treat hypothyroidism, being treated with too much medication can lead to increased risk of atrial fibrillation, study finds.

Thyroid hormones are associated with losing weight and having more energy, which may lead to people being treated at the high end of the normal range”

— Dr. Jeffrey Anderson, Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, USA, November 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For patients who take medication to treat hypothyroidism, being treated with too much medication can lead to an increased risk of atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm disorder associated with stroke, a new study of more than 174,000 patients has found.

The findings were presented by researchers from the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Salt Lake City at the American Heart Association Scientific Session conference in Chicago.

“We know patients with hypothyroidism have a higher risk of atrial fibrillation, but we didn’t consider increased risk within what’s considered the normal range of thyroid hormones,” said lead researcher Jeffrey L. Anderson, MD, Distinguished Clinical and Research Physician at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute. “These findings show we might want to re-consider what we call normal.”

In the new study, researchers surveyed the electronic medical records of 174,914 patients treated at Intermountain Healthcare facilities whose free thyroxine (fT4) levels were recorded and who were not on thyroid replacement medication. Researchers then took what’s considered a normal range of fT4 levels, divided it into four quartiles, then looked at those patients’ records for a current or future diagnosis of atrial fibrillation.

They found a 40 percent increase in existing atrial fibrillation for patients in the highest quartile of fT4 levels compared to patients in the lowest, and a 16 percent increase in newly developing atrial fibrillation during 3-years of follow up.

These findings, said Dr. Anderson, suggest that the optimal healthy range of fT4 should be reconsidered and redefined.

“Thyroid hormones are associated with losing weight and having more energy, which may lead to people being treated at the high end of the normal range,” said Dr. Anderson. “Are we harming people by putting them at a higher risk of atrial fibrillation, and therefore stroke?”

The study also showed that fT4 should be measured, along with thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which is more commonly tested for in patients with irregular thyroid hormone levels but was not helpful within the normal range in refining risk.

The link between fT4 and atrial fibrillation was recently recognized in the Rotterdam Study, a population-based cohort study first started in 1990. However, with any new and unexpected report requires replication and independent confirmation. The new study by Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute researchers establishes the link between fT4 level and atrial fibrillation in patients treated in the United States.

“The next step for researchers is to conduct a randomized trial to see if targeting a lower versus a higher upper range of fT4 in patients receiving thyroid hormone replacement therapy leads to a lower risk of atrial fibrillation and stroke along with other possible heart-related issues, like atherosclerosis,” Dr. Anderson said.

Russian Hip Hop & RnB Musician LastEDEN is Making Big Noise Right Now With his New Single "Lil_OO"

“Don’t be afraid to change your life for the better,” Russian musician and founder of the electronic project LastEDEN, Kirill Kotlobay tells us…

LONDON, MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, November 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Don’t be afraid to change your life for the better,” Russian musician and founder of the electronic project LastEDEN, Kirill Kotlobay tells us, and it’s words he’s lived by. Kicking off LastEDEN in 2003, Kirill has gone on to produce ten albums, numerous tracks and remixes, as well as joint releases with other musicians and vocalists.

His latest track ‘Lil_OO (original mix)’ is full, loud, layered, and listening to it I am immediately transported to a dance floor at 3am in a club on a far off sunny isle.

Music has always had the power to be influential to its listeners, and LastEDEN’s sound carries plenty of meaning as well as beats, blips and techno zips. Over the years his sound has grown from slow and lyrical ambient chillout tracks to a soundscape ranging from trip hop, R&B, dance, pop and rock.

A good artist is able to step out from their comfort zone and realise the potential their music has to make a positive influence on listeners, and LastEDEN is all about that approach. “When you leave everything at once and move to a new place, you leave the negative surrounding you, strangers and false emotions, that's when really beautiful things, and beautiful music is born.”

Describing his sound as “powerful and heartfelt”, Kirill’s music is inspired by sounds of the 80s and 90s. “Legendary bands and artists like Prodigy, Depeche Mode, George Michael, Mylene Farmer, Eminem, Enigma, and many others have left a deep mark on my heart.” Mixing these influences along with contemporary sounds from artists like Nelly Furtado and Timbaland, Kirill began to develop his own sound, and turn that into LastEDEN.

Kirill Kotlobay as the LastEDEN project is also aired in America on FRISKY Radio on the first Sunday of every month, with an hour long music show playing chillout, future garage and ambient tunes. Tune in and zone out to be transported away, think Moby, think ‘Porcelain’, think The Beach…

LastEDEN was placed third among musicians and DJs for 2017 in Russia’s online music magazine’s 7Minutes, so he’s one to watch out for in 2018 and beyond.

‘Lil_OO (original mix)’ is set for release in mid-November, so you’ve got plenty of time to enjoy it before ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ gets stuck in your head for two months.

Artist: LastEDEN
Track: Lil_OO (original mix)

Ganapati Makes Presence Felt at the Asia Gaming Summit

Hayato Terai Co-CEO GanaEight Coin

Ganapati leaders as main speakers in Asia

Two Ganapati team members were among top industry speakers invited to share their views at the summit.

We want to see an industry that is well regulated and operated. That is a major reason why we launched G8C in Malta, the country which has the most progressive blockchain regulations internationally.”

— Hayato Terai, Co-CEO

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The second Asia Gaming Summit took place between 6th-8th November in Taipei, offering an opportunity for leading industry experts to share their insights into the latest regulatory updates, developments, trends and innovations in Asian gaming.

The Asia Gaming Summit 2018 featured a three-day conference program and two industry-specific workshops. Delegates joined networking sessions, drinks, and meetings to gain knowledge of the intricacies of the current Asian gaming industry. As a major sponsor of the event, Ganapati PLC made its brand known to all, through both topical talks and as an official partner of the widely attended closing networking party, resulting in the company making its mark not only on the informative side of the event but its overall atmosphere.

Two Ganapati team members were among top industry speakers invited to share their views at the summit. Taku Sawada, CEO of Ganapati Malta Ltd and Ganapati PLC Taiwan, and Lichun Hsiao, COO of Ganapati PLC Taiwan, were selected to introduce Ganapati, its products and how blockchain technology can provide functionality in iGaming going forward. As a company which specializes in immersive Japanese gaming, Ganapati brings genuine Japanese elements not only to its slot games but to all the events and trade shows the company attends. Past industry events featuring Ganapati have seen the likes of authentic Japanese cuisine and even performances from real-life geisha.

The Ganapati Group recently launched its own ICO, the G8C token, through a new Malta-based subsidiary, GanaEight Coin Ltd. The token offers casino chip functionality and is designed to be bet directly onto its own original blockchain platform.

The second day of the Asia Gaming Summit focused on the impact blockchain and cryptocurrency-focused operations are having on the online gaming industry. As a legal expert and Co-CEO of GanaEight Coin, Hayato Terai shared his point of view on cryptocurrency: “As a lawyer, we want to see an industry that is well regulated and operated. That is a major reason why we launched G8C in Malta, the country which has the most progressive blockchain regulations internationally. The most important features of G8C are that it is stable, transparent and able to be used directly for online betting. This is a tailored innovation for online betting, which uses the latest updated blockchain technology, but is an “Anti-ICO” in the sense that it creates stability for both investors and players.”

The intriguing information delivered at the conference by the Ganapati team was clearly well received by attendees, provoking an array of news and media outlets to request further interviews. It’s safe to say that Ganapati’s offering of unique content and new, innovative concepts showcased at the summit will be highly anticipated by the Asian gaming industry as a result.

Many are considering solar water pump systems as the national grid is becoming risky and expensive!

Renewable Water Harvesting & Pumping Solutions”

— Hannes Moolman

GEORGE, WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA, November 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Water is on our priority list and the options of harvesting water is expanding daily. Solar energy is becoming more affordable and more efficient as technology is rapidly enhancing.

Many are considering solar water pump options as the national grid is becoming risky and expensive. Many farming communities are moving towards renewable water harvesting options due to product availability and price as solar pumping systems are becoming more affordable and available in Africa. A solar powered water pump compared with a conventional grid connected AC pump just makes more sense when considering the cost of electricity on the long run.

Using the sun power to pump water can greatly relieve the cost of electricity and ensure water availability in remote areas where there is urgent need.There are three different systems that can be installed when considering a solar pumping solutions;

• DC Solar Pumps
• DC to AC Solar Pumps
• Hybrid Solar Pumps (New technology)

How does a solar pump work?

The energy created by the sun, commonly referred to as solar power, can be utilised in several ways to convert the sun's rays into electricity. With the solar pump, solar energy is converted into electricity by ways of solar cells to power a DC or AC motor through a pump controller, pump inverter or VFD Drive. Solar pumps are widely used in boreholes, wells, swimming pools, dams, rivers, fountains and larger agricultural projects for irrigation and pivot applications.

Solar pumps operate by using the following main components. The solar array collects the sun’s UV rays and converts it into usable electricity. A pump controller or MPPT controller regulates the DC voltage for specialized DC pumps at specific voltages. These systems can also be fitted with an auxiliary AC input controller or panel for generator or grid connection when long pumping hours are needed, emergency situations or during prolonged cloudy days.

Solar pumps are an environmentally friendly and an energy/cost efficient way to pump water for a wide range of domestic and commercial purposes.

Solar pumps are in many cases self-contained pumping systems or combined with grid or a generator depending the priority and availability of options. A Solar pumping system is one of the greatest solutions to the electricity challenges in South Africa as it utilises the abundance of free energy which we have daily.

Solar pumps are easy to install and require virtually no maintenance, and they have a lifespan of roughly 20 years depending the quality and or brand. This means that after the initial set up costs their servicing costs are minimum should the water quality be at a good standard.

The variable flow rate of a solar pump is largely determined by the strength and position of the sun. You need to ensure that the specific solar water pump purchased meets the needs of your system and application as there are various models and ranges available for different depth’s and flow rates.

Another very important aspect is the submersible depth specification by the manufacturer as most of the solar DC pumps make use of oil cooled motors and is subject to atmospheric pressure limitations.

Tripple Hydro & Energy is a specialist company offering renewable water harvesting and pumping solutions in Sub-Sahara Africa. The company offers a wide range of solar water pumps South Africa and solar related products to choose from.
