New way of diagnostics detects 'undetectable' genetic defects
New way of diagnostics detects ‘undetectable’ genetic defects
Detecting hidden genetic defects by applying an existing method to an existing datasets. Researchers at Radboud university medical center have succeeded: they showed that the ‘Expansion Hunter’ method can detect errors in the DNA that lead to repeat expansion diseases, such as the movement disorder ataxia. This result provides guidance to fellow researchers worldwide on how to use this method to…

I am waking up with an extreme feeling of dread this morning. Maybe it’s because I wasted a valuable hour and a half of my time and money with a quack nutritionist.
Maybe it’s all the things she told me, that I could have additional hormonal issues that need to be balanced, that I could have heavy metal toxicity causing all my issues and pain, or I could have lymes that has been missed for years, maybe even my whole life.
She sunk the ship of my current plan of exercise, rest, water, vitamin d, stretching and resting when my body needs it and going to the doctor when something new feels off and said she will rescue me with her plan including nutrition, detoxification, diagnostics and supplements. She didn’t even do any tests and she is cookie cutter labeling me with so many issues.
I guess the consultation wasn’t a total waste. I have interesting news for my doctor at my next visit and I should probably stop vaping, (my dirty little secret) because if I have any issues with metals, smoking for many years in the past, and now vaping seem to be easy enough to blame.
Even though after checking with dr Google, metal toxicity is rare and the only thing I would do for it is some type of elimination detox. The other option mentioned is described as dangerous and possibly ineffective with a side effect of death.
I could also ask my dr at my next follow up to retest me for Lymes, see if he can test me for metals or know of someone who could and ask where I could go for more thorough hormone testing then my gynocologist has done in the past. I wonder what he will say.
Feeling of dread part 2. My son is starting in school instruction again so soon. I feel like I barely thought it through. He needs his teachers though, he has said that more than once in the past year. I just hope it was the right decision at the end of the day.
Maybe I could have looked harder for a tutor before going back into the building. I hope his anxiety doesn’t get the best of him when we start going back. My poor sweetie gets the worst worry stomach aches.
I feel like I’ve been stumbling through this whole week. I had a productive Monday and Tuesday at work followed by a day full of distraction and lack of focus. I’m toward the bottom of our team’s point board for the month, which never makes me feel good.
The loud construction and the aggravation of the damage to my car last week really threw off my game, and yesterday it was dealing with trying to make the school transportation and my work and PT schedule work together in a way that I might not feel like a zombie by July.
Thanks for reading my morning rant. ☕️

Chronic kidney disease in cats: RenalTech encourages vet visits and better preventive care
Tumblr media
- By Antech Diagnostics -
California-based Antech Diagnostics, part of Mars Veterinary Health, released new data today showing that all cats from a retrospective review of 730,000 veterinary visits received improved preventive care following a positive or negative “RenalTech”, which predicts chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats 2 years before it occurs. 
Data show the predictive diagnostic tool increased veterinary visits by as much as 31%. Additionally, pet owners proactively sought CKD-related early interventions, including food and medications. The findings support RenalTech's value as a diagnostic tool for veterinarians seeking to improve overall feline wellness while also positively impacting the health of cats facing CKD.
"With appropriate medical management, cats with chronic kidney disease can survive for a significant amount of time with good quality of life," said Jonathan Elliott, MA, Vet MB, PhD, Cert SAC, Dip ECVPT, MRCVS, Professor of Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology at Royal Veterinary College in London. "However, the perennial issue with cats has always been getting them in the door, and for cats with CKD, diagnosing them early enough for early care strategies to make a difference. With recent developments in diagnostic tests and ways of utilizing the data we gather from routine geriatric health screens, we now have a very real opportunity to impact both access to preventive care for all cats and improve on the duration of good quality of life of cats facing and living with CKD."
One in 3 cats will develop CKD in their lifetime. Diagnostics that go beyond early diagnosis to disease prediction allow veterinarians to begin monitoring and treating CKD when it is identified early, leading to interventions that are most effective at this stage. As veterinary medicine's first predictive diagnostic tool, RenalTech combines artificial intelligence and machine learning with 20 years of data from over 150,000 cats to predict whether or not a cat will develop CKD within 2 years with 95% accuracy. In the one-year, retrospective analysis of RenalTech's impact on preventive care practices, researchers found that regardless of a cat's positive or negative status, RenalTech use alone created opportunities for the following:
Early interventions to delay CKD onset and progression—pet owners with RenalTech-positive cats proactively sought proven early care strategies for CKD: 31.5% purchased renal therapeutic diets vs. only 4.8% percent of all other cats, and 41% purchased CKD-related medications vs. only 26.3% of all other cats.  
Improved preventive care for all cats—all cats regardless of RenalTech status received improved, sustained veterinary care. Visits from RenalTech-negative cats increased 14% year-over-year while visits from RenalTech-positive cats increased 31%.
"Cats don't like visiting the vet, and this simple fact has limited their access to preventive care for decades," said Dr. Jennifer Ogeer, DVM, MSc., MBA, MA, VP Medical Affairs & Commercial Marketing. "Now, we know that an early warning of disease is an incredibly powerful motivator for owners, who naturally respond to the opportunity to treat CKD proactively. Perhaps more importantly though, we also know from the data that regardless of status, RenalTech use alone improved all cats' access to preventive care. In this sense, and like RenalTech itself, the data is another first for veterinary medicine."
Responding to the opportunity to treat CKD before it occurs, Antech also offers veterinary medicine's only complete solution for disease prediction, early diagnosis, staging and monitoring. The diagnostic portfolio includes RenalTech as well as SDMA™ (symmetric dimethylarginine), the renal biomarker for CKD. Combined, these advanced diagnostics offer veterinarians a unique opportunity to support the best possible outlook for cats facing disease.
"RenalTech has been a great additional value to our patients and clients," said John Faught, DVM, Chief Medical Officer for Firehouse Animal Health Centers of Austin, TX. "At Firehouse Animal Health Center, we have long utilized routine lab work to assess our patients' evolving function. By evaluating those trends and spot checks, we have hoped to make a difference earlier in disease or aging processes. Never before, though, have we been able to use those values to actually predict the future of our pets' health. RenalTech intersects Antech's advanced laboratory testing with innovative statistical data analysis to provide truly preventive medicine instead of reactionary."
