The Association of Vitamin D Status and Pre-operative Physical Activity in Patients with Hip or Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) afflicts over 12 million elderly Americans and is one of the leading causes of disability amongst non-institutionalized adults. It often leads to decreased mobility, lower functional status, and reduced quality-of-life (QoL). Conservative management of OA includes avoidance of high-impact activities, weight loss, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), glucosamine/chondroitin supplements, and physical therapy. When such management is no longer effective, joint replacement surgery may be offered to patients to alleviate pain, optimize function, and improve QoL.

In Excess? The Role of Iodine in Hashimoto’s Disease and Thyroid Cancer

Following widespread efforts to eradicate iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) worldwide — first launched in the 1990s and continuing today — epidemiologists noted an unexpected phenomenon: a significant uptick in the rates of both autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s disease) and thyroid cancer. Initial wisdom suggested that because eradication efforts favored universal salt iodization (USI) programs, excess iodine was likely to blame.
