One hundred fifty-five subjects with Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV) MDD, a baseline 17-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D-17) score ⩾15 and baseline biomarker data (interleukin (IL)-1ra, IL-6, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), leptin and adiponectin) were randomized between 18 May 2006 and 30 June 2011 to 8 weeks of double-blind treatment with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)-enriched n-3 1060 mg day-1, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-enriched n-3 900 mg day-1 or placebo

BipolarD – Bipolar Benefits with Increase n-3 and Decrease n-6 Dietary PUFA

Source:
Omega Research

OBJECTIVES:
Omega (n)-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are molecular modulators of neurotransmission and inflammation. We hypothesized that plasma concentrations of n-3 PUFAs would be lower and those of n-6 PUFAs higher in subjects with bipolar disorder (BD) compared to healthy controls (HCs), and would correlate with symptom severity in subjects with BD, and that effective treatment would correlate with increased n-3 but lower n-6 PUFA levels. Additionally, we explored clinical correlations and group differences in plasma levels of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.

Bipolar disorder is a chronic and typically recurring illness with significant psychosocial morbidity. Although the aetiological factors that contribute to the onset of mania, and by definition bipolar I disorder, are poorly understood, it most commonly occurs during the adolescent period.

Putative risk factors for developing bipolar disorder include having a first-degree relative with a mood disorder, physical/sexual abuse and other psychosocial stressors, substance use disorders, psychostimulant and antidepressant medication exposure and omega-3 fatty acid deficiency.

Medical News Today

The education system in the United States has changed dramatically since the 1970′s. We have seen a rise in time spent on homework, a significant increase in the percentage of children enrolled in full day programs, and a rise in the time spent on teaching preschool aged children their numbers and letters. A new study out of the University of Miami suggests a correlation between the prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and increasing academic demands on young children.

A study epublished in March 2015 reports that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation benefits symptoms in subjects with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that the prevalence of autism in the U.S. increased by 119.4% from 2000 (1 in 150 births) to 2010 (1 in 68 births). Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability, increasing by 6% to 15% each year from 2002 to 2010.

Exercising the Mind to Treat Attention Deficits
Source:
NY Times

Which will it be – the berries or the chocolate dessert? Homework or the Xbox? Finish that memo, or roam Facebook?

Such quotidian decisions test a mental ability called cognitive control, the capacity to maintain focus on an important choice while ignoring other impulses. Poor planning, wandering attention and trouble inhibiting impulses all signify lapses in cognitive control. Now a growing stream of research suggests that strengthening this mental muscle, usually with exercises in so – called mindfulness, may help children and adults cope with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and its adult equivalent, attention deficit disorder.

Tackling abdominal obesity with exercise and nutrition

Medical News Today

Lifestyle programs focused on high-intensity interval training combined with nutritional counselling on the Mediterranean diet have shown dramatic results for improving the heart health of people with abdominal obesity, finds a study released at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress.

“Each of these lifestyle interventions alone is known to have an impact, but no one has studied them together in a longer term,” says Dr. Mathieu Gayda, one of the study’s authors and an exercise physiologist at the Montreal Heart Institute. “Our results show that the combination of the two interventions supersized the benefits to heart health.”
