  • Defining the role of dietary intake in determining weight change in patients with cancer cachexia. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Many patients with advanced cancer and weight loss are consuming diets that would likely be insufficient to maintain weight even in healthy individuals. Higher consumption of protein and energy correlates with greater weight gain, but it is impossible to predict the response to increased nutritional intake when patients are first assessed. There is a pressing need to improve understanding of factors that modulate metabolic responses to dietary intake in patients with cancer cachexia.
  • Feline Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency: A Retrospective Study of 150 Cases. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in cats often has a different clinical presentation than in dogs. The age range for EPI in cats is wide, and many cats can be ≤5 years of age. Most cats respond well to appropriate treatment for EPI, and cobalamin supplementation appears to be necessary for a good response.
  • A case of severe anorexia, excessive weight loss and high peptide YY levels after sleeve gastrectomy. [Journal Article]
  • EDEndocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2015; 2015:150020

  • CONCLUSIONS: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and SG produce marked sustained weight reduction. However, there is a marked individual variability in this reduction, and post-operative weight loss follows a normal distribution with extremes of 'good' and 'poor' response.Profound anorexia and excessive weight loss post-SG may be associated with markedly elevated circulating fasted PYY and post-meal PYY and GLP1 levels.Octreotide treatment can produce symptomatic relief and weight regain for post-SG patients that have an extreme anorectic and weight loss response.The present case highlights the value of measuring circulating gut hormone levels in patients with post-operative anorexia and extreme weight loss.
