Low Dose of Bacterial Toxin Could Be Protective for Men at Risk of Acute Kidney Injury

American Physiological Society (APS)

Researchers found a low dose of endotoxin prior to induction of acute kidney injury improved outcomes for male rats. Their study will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Conference: Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease.

Two different cannabis compounds make a difference in how much alcohol someone drinks

Research Society on Alcoholism

Alcohol and cannabis are commonly used together, and their co-use has public health implications. A preliminary study looked at the effects of two cannabinoids – delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabidiol (CBD) – on drinking and craving. The study found that higher levels of THC are associated with greater co-use of alcohol, whereas CBD-based products may be associated with lower levels of alcohol co-use. These results and others will be shared at the 42nd annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in Minneapolis June 22-26.

Drinking context has a significant impact on perception of alcohol effects

Research Society on Alcoholism

Alcohol is a complicated beverage; it can have stimulating, sedating, and various subjective effects. These effects can, in turn, predict future drinking behavior as well as risk for alcohol problems.

Blood Metabolite Levels May Help Identify Diabetic Kidney Disease

American Physiological Society (APS)

Metabolomics, the study of small molecules the body produces during metabolism (metabolites) may be a future key to identifying diabetes-related kidney disease. The finding will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) conference, Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease, in Charlottesville, Va.

Baking Soda Boosts Immunity, Impairs Insulin Response in Type 2 Diabetes

American Physiological Society (APS)

Early research suggests that the common pantry staple baking soda affects inflammation and insulin handling in type 2 diabetes. The findings will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) conference, Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease in Charlottesville, Va.

Marijuana and alcohol: recreational users drink more, medicinal users drink less

Research Society on Alcoholism

There is a lack of agreement about the relationship between marijuana and alcohol use. Does marijuana use increase or decrease alcohol consumption? Research based on interviews with users of both marijuana and alcohol reveals that recreational users tend to drink more alcohol, and medicinal users drink less alcohol, on marijuana-use days. These results and others will be shared at the 42nd annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in Minneapolis June 22-26.

Seniors Who Drink Socially: Harmless or Risky?

Research Society on Alcoholism

Nearly half of Americans older than 65 years of age self-report as current drinkers. Most do not develop alcohol use disorders; however, it remains unclear if growing older entails greater vulnerability to alcohol’s effects. Research on the impact of “social” drinking – comparable to a glass or two of wine with dinner – among older adults has found a notable impact on daily activities such as the ability to operate a car. These results and others will be shared at the 42nd annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in Minneapolis June 22-26.

Hunger, impulsivity, childhood trauma, and drinking contribute to intimate partner violence

Research Society on Alcoholism

Intimate partner violence (IPV) – commonly known as domestic violence, and long associated with drinking – is a significant public health problem. Examination of patients treated at urban Emergency Departments (EDs) shows that choice of drinking venues, such as bars or restaurants, and amount consumed there, appear to have little influence on IPV risk. These results and others will be shared at the 42nd annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in Minneapolis June 22-26.
