Postpartum depression Ventura California

Are you feeling Anxious, withdrawn or depressed ? It is not your fault and you could have Postpartum depression. Learn more about a new Research study that could make a difference by calling Ventura clinical trials at 1800 920 0016
Postpartum depression (PPD), also called postnatal depression, is a type of clinical depression which can affect both sexes after childbirth. Symptoms may include sadness, low energy, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, reduced desire for sex, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability. While many women experience self-limited, mild symptoms postpartum, postpartum depression should be suspected when symptoms are severe and have lasted over two weeks.
Although a number of risk factors have been identified, the causes of PPD are not well understood. Hormonal change is hypothesized to contribute as one cause of postpartum depression. The emotional effects of postpartum depression can include sleep deprivation, anxiety about parenthood and caring for an infant, identity crisis, a feeling of loss of control over life, and anxiety due to lack of support from a romantic or sexual partner. Many women recover with treatment such as a support group, counseling, or medication.
Between 0.5% to 61% of women will experience depression after delivery. Postpartum psychosis occurs in about 1–2 per thousand women following childbirth. Among men, in particular new fathers, the incidence of postpartum depression has been estimated to be between 1% and 25.5%.
Onset and duration
Postpartum depression usually begins between two weeks to a month after delivery. Recent studies have shown that fifty percent of postpartum depressive episodes actually begin prior to delivery. Therefore, in the DSM-5, postpartum depression is diagnosed under “depressive disorder with peripartum onset”, in which “peripartum onset” is defined as anytime either during pregnancy or within the four weeks following delivery. PPD may last several months or even a year.Postpartum depression can also occur in women who have suffered a miscarriage.
Parent-infant relationship
Postpartum depression can interfere with normal maternal-infant bonding and adversely affect child development. Postpartum depression may lead mothers to be inconsistent with childcare.Children of mothers with PPD have been found to have higher rates of emotional problems, behavioral problems, psychiatric diagnoses (such as oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder), and hyperactivity.
In rare cases, or about 1 to 2 per 1,000, the postpartum depression appears as postpartum psychosis which may adversely affect the infant’s health. In these, or among women with a history of previous psychiatric hospital admissions, may occur. In the United States, postpartum depression is one of the leading causes of annual reported infanticide incidence rate of about 8 per 100,000 births.

Symptoms

Ulcerative colitis symptoms can vary, depending on the severity of inflammation and where it occurs. Therefore, doctors often classify ulcerative colitis according to its location.
You may have the following signs and symptoms, depending on which part of the colon is inflamed:
  • Diarrhea, often with blood or pus
  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Rectal pain
  • Rectal bleeding — passing small amount of blood with stool
  • Urgency to defecate
  • Inability to defecate despite urgency
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • In children, failure to grow
Most people with ulcerative colitis have mild to moderate symptoms. The course of ulcerative colitis may vary, with some people having long periods of remission.

Types

Ulcerative colitis is classified according to how much of your colon is affected. The condition can be mild and limited to the rectum (ulcerative proctitis). Or it can affect additional parts of your colon, generally with more severe symptoms. People who develop ulcerative colitis at a younger age are more likely to have severe symptoms.

When to see a doctor

See your doctor if you experience a persistent change in your bowel habits or if you have signs and symptoms such as:
  • Abdominal pain
  • Blood in your stool
  • Ongoing diarrhea that doesn’t respond to over-the-counter medications
  • Diarrhea that awakens you from sleep
  • An unexplained fever lasting more than a day or two
Although ulcerative colitis usually isn’t fatal, it’s a serious disease that, in some cases, may cause life-threatening complications.

Personal Philosophy

“I use logic when practicing and try to think outside the box. I always remind myself that much like every fingerprint is different, every patient’s symptom is different and one cannot practice like a robot. We are all humans attempting to stay a little bit longer on the planet. I never assume anything and never take anything lightly. I always try to be patient and listen and play detective with all the clues. Mostly, I realize that I am just a messenger and observe the miracles of healing that come from a higher power.

Every action leads to a reaction is pure scientific thinking but the reason behind the action is unknown. We, humans are only specks on this planet who must recognize the presence of a higher power. As hard as existence is for everyone, it is just that “an existence for a fraction of time” and as much as we come to doctors for answers we must realize that sometimes there are no answers or reason.”

Ulcerative colitis-clinical trials-Ventura

Like many ULCERATIVE COLITIS (UC) patients, your doctor has prescribed mesalamine to treat your UC. While mesalamine can be effective against UC for some patients, other UC patients continue to struggle with symptoms of their disease
To pre-qualify for this study, you must be:

As a result, you may be considering additional options for
long-term treatment of your UC.
One option is this research study of an investigational drug that is taken along with your mesalamine prescription. In this study, local doctors want to evaluate an investigational drug called
LT-02 as an add-on treatment for UC.
The investigational drug, which is soy-based, is a delayed-release drug that is in the form of pellets and taken twice a day before a meal.
Doctors want to compare LT-02 with placebo, which looks like the investigational drug, but contains no active medication. The results of this study will provide more information about the investigational drug and whether it could one day be used as an add-on treatment with current UC medications.

Who is eligible to participate in this study?

ulcerative colitis clinical trials

• 18 to 70 years of age and diagnosed with ulcerative colitis
• Currently taking mesalamine
• Having an ulcerative colitis flare (increased UC symptoms)

All study-related visits, tests, and drugs will be provided to participants at no cost. In addition, compensation for study-related time and travel may be provided.
If you do not meet these eligibility criteria right now, but do so at a future date, please contact the study coordinator about your eligibility, using the telephone number on the back of this brochure.

What will happen during this study?

Before you can participate in the study, you must first be screened for eligibility. If you are eligible, and you agree to participate, you will be randomly assigned to one of two study groups.
One group will receive the investigational drug and one group will receive placebo. You have a 67% (2/3) chance of receiving the investigational drug and a 33% (1/3) chance of receiving placebo.

You, the study doctor, and the study staff will not know which study drug (investigational or placebo) you are receiving. This is to prevent any opinions about the study drugs from affecting the results of the study. However, in the event of an emergency, this information will be provided.
No matter which study drug you receive, you will take it in the morning and evening 30 to 60 minutes before a meal. You may mix your study drug with water, juice, milk, or yogurt. You will take your study drug twice a day for 12 weeks.

You total study participation will last approximately 20 weeks and includes 6 study clinic visits for treatment and
follow-up. Additionally, you will receive 1 phone call from the study staff. During your study clinic visits, study doctors and staff members will evaluate your health and progress through various tests and assessments. Some of these include, but are not limited to:

Physical exams
• Vital signs measurements
• Blood and urine sample collections
Endoscopy (looks at the lining of your colon)
• UC assessments
• Quality of life and work productivity questionnaires
• Reviews of medications you are currently taking

You will also be given an electronic diary and asked to record your daily UC symptoms and study drug dosing details. This diary must be completed every day in order for you to remain in the study.
If you complete the study, you may have the option to participate in an extension study in which all patients will receive the investigational drug.

What are the risks and benefits related to this study?

As with any medical research study, your study drug may not help your UC. The investigational medication has been studied before and most patients in those studies tolerated it well. However, it is possible that you could experience a side effect while in this study.

You will be closely monitored throughout this study. Researchers for this study are required to follow the study protocol, which explains all study procedures in detail. An independent review board responsible for patient safety has reviewed these procedures and approved this protocol.

What if I have questions?

The study staff is always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the study or the study drugs

Clinical trials-Ventura-Fatty Liver

What is Fatty liver disease?

Fatty liver disease is very common in middle aged Americans, with the incidence increasing with the obesity epidemic. Major risk factors include obesity and type 2 diabetes, though it’s also associated with excessive alcohol consumption.
It usually causes no symptoms. When symptoms occur, they include fatigue, weight loss, and abdominal pain.
Treatment involves reducing the risk factors such as obesity through a diet and exercise program. It is generally a benign condition, but in a minority of patients, it can progress to liver failure (cirrhosis).
