Rare case of face blindness following COVID-19 infection reported

Long COVID, or post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection is characterized by several symptoms that resurface, begin, or persist even after 12 weeks of the initial COVID-19 infection. These symptoms include psychological problems comprising long-lasting memory, loss of smell and taste, psychosis, and language impairments that substantially impair everyday functioning. However, no persisting and selective visual perception deficits have been reported.

In the current study, the investigators reported that COVID-19 could sometimes cause severe selective impairments like prosopagnosia and well-known broad impairments. Survey data collected from individuals with long COVID also demonstrated that cognitive and perceptual deficits following COVID-19 were present in a substantial proportion of the respondents, though none report having acquired prosopagnosia.

Cinnamon intake improves dyslipidaemia particularly in PCOS patients

Cinnamon is a polyphenol-rich spice that might be the oldest known spice in the world and in ancient Egypt, it was more valuable than gold. Cinnamon is used in nearly every holiday treat during the winter and fall, but there are plenty of benefits to using cinnamon year-round. Science has confirmed the many health benefits associated with cinnamon use.

An umbrella meta-analysis has shown that cinnamon consumption improves dyslipidaemia in some metabolic disorders, particularly PCOS, and improves interleukin -6 and total antioxidant capacity (TAC). Dyslipidemia promotes atherosclerosis, a key risk factor for CVD (cardiovascular disease).

The research was published in Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases.

Relative fat mass helps in prediction of new onset diabetes

Relative fat mass (RFM) has the potential to be utilized in the general practice environment to predict the risk of developing future diabetes because it is highly related with new-onset T2D. according to an article published in European Journal of Internal Medicine.

A brand-new anthropometric equation for estimating whole-body fat percentage is called relative fat mass.

The study enrolled 522 of the 7961 PREVEND participants who experienced type-2 diabetes. All adiposity indicators were substantially linked with the incidence of type-2 diabetes in a multivariable model.
