Herhaald appel aan #MeerOverMedisch (hallo @ReneSteenhorst): zorg dat je behalve per columnist de columns van individuele columnisten makkelijk terug kunt vinden. Bijvoorbeeld de geweldige columns van @IvanWolffers.

Ik herhaal mijn appel van een paar weken terug:

[Wayback/Archive] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers on Twitter: “Tip voor #MeerOverMedisch (ik hoop dat @ReneSteenhorst dit kan laten fiksen): zorg dat je behalve meerovermedisch.nl/columntypes/gastcolumn/ ook per columnist de columns van individuele columnisten makkelijk terug kunt vinden. Bijvoorbeeld de geweldige columns van @IvanWolffers.”

De volledige draad vind je op [Wayback/Archive] Thread by @jpluimers on Thread Reader App, waarover hieronder meer.

Easiest way to video call from your PC via WhatsApp is to use [Wayback/Archive] WhatsApp: Download – Mac or Windows PC.

Some links on a ketogenic diet and cancer: does it help prevent for cancer?

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/27

Disclaimer: only change your diet after consulting with your doctor!

Various cancer patients I know have switched to a ketogenic diet for quite a few years already.

So I did a bit of digging to see if it helps, or more importantly: if it doesn’t make it worse.

My start was the first hits on [Wayback/Archive.is] ketogenic cancer – Google Scholar:

Some more specific links are at [Wayback] ketogenic colorectal cancer – Google Scholar.

For now, I’m with these conclusions on the Wikipedia articles on Ketosis and Ketogenic diet:

  • Cancer: Preclinical studies have indicated ketosis may have anti-tumor effects, although clinical trials have been limited by small sample sizes and have not shown conclusive benefit.[21]
  • Because some cancer cells are inefficient in processing ketone bodies for energy, the ketogenic diet has also been suggested as a treatment for cancer.[61][62] A 2018 review looked at the evidence from preclinical and clinical studies of ketogenic diets in cancer therapy. The clinical studies in humans are typically very small, with some providing weak evidence for an anti-tumour effect, particularly for glioblastoma, but in other cancers and studies, no anti-tumour effect was seen. Taken together, results from preclinical studies, albeit sometimes contradictory, tend to support an anti-tumor effect rather than a pro-tumor effect of the KD for most solid cancers.[63]

Some links as I have (by publication maybe had) a (pre)cancerous polyp in my rectum; pathology will figure out the exact malignancy:

Illustrations for Bowel resection for colorectal cancer

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/24

I finally found some great illustrations having to do with my lower anterior resection.

They are from [Wayback/Archive] https://www.uvmhealth.org/healthwise/topic/zm6206 (Bowel resection for colorectal cancer)

The most important for me is this one (as I have end-to-side where “end” is on the very tiny bit of rectum left and “side” is on the descending colon):
