Lactose intolerance – Abstract
Lactose intolerance is a disorder with symptoms, such as diarrhea, bloating, nausea and abdominal pain, which are observed in persons with lactose malabsorption after blinded ingestion of lactose but not after ingestion of placebo. Lactose intolerance can be diagnosed with the mucosal biopsy lactose testing, commercial lactase assay, genetic tests and H2-breath test (together with measurement of CH4).
Symptoms caused by lactose intolerance can be reduced by consuming probiotics and tablets of lactase enzyme, but the proper modification of diet is the main treatment of lactose intolerance. Firstly, it is necessary to reduce the consumption of lactose choosing lactose-free or fermented dairy products. In the review done by Misselwitz et al., it is not recommended to entirely exclude lactose since it was shown that up to 12g of lactose could be tolerated (one glass of milk) by the patients with lactose intolerance. Also, one of the reasons why lactose reduction is a better solution than total exclusion is that dairy products are one of the main sources of calcium. Since numerous studies evidenced that reduced intake of dairy products can increase chances of fractures in women and can lead to osteoporosis, it is necessary for patients on dairy restriction to take calcium from other sources. In some patients, symptoms persist despite the reduction of lactose intake. For those patients, it is recommended to modify the diet and to consume food low in FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides And Polyols), since there are other fibers and carbohydrates in the diet that are hard to digest. Also, in this review, it was pointed out that a combination of lactose with other foods can reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance.
Since it was shown that microflora from unpasteurized yogurt could reduce symptoms of lactose malabsorption in comparison to pasteurized yogurt, in the pilot study done by Mummah and colleagues it was hypothesized that raw milk could improve lactose malabsorption or reduce symptoms of lactose intolerance compering to pasteurized milk. The effects of three types of milk (raw, pasteurized and soy milk) on lactose intolerance symptoms were investigated, and results showed that raw milk didn’t reduce symptoms of lactose intolerance.
Although proper dietary interventions can help in the reduction of lactose intolerance symptoms, further investigation of long-term modification of diet and optimization of the diagnostic method are needed.

Consider the numerous changes that must be made in the respiratory system’s function in order to achieve fluent, natural sounding speech.

You should prepare a thorough, concise, clear representation of your understanding of the course material through this examination. You are free to use whatever resources you deem necessary in preparing, however, be sure that your sources are reliable and that your work is independent of other students in the class.

I expect a comprehensive synthesis of your understanding of the material and will therefore grade you very strictly. Points will be deducted for any omissions of pertinent elements, problems in conceptual understanding, ambiguity in responses or incorrect information. Be sure that you address ALL aspects of the question. SPELLING will be graded, so, make sure you check the spelling.

YOU MUST RESTRICT YOUR RESPONSES TO ONE PAGE PER QUESTION. This will require you to organize your thoughts carefully and limit what you say to only that which is relevant.

1) Consider the numerous changes that must be made in the respiratory system’s function in order to achieve fluent, natural sounding speech. I would like for you to explain the changes needed in volumes and pressures of air, flow of air, muscular recruitment and activity, and timing for someone to count from 1-50 on a single breath. (20 points)

2) Now consider a patient with a C-6 spinal cord injury who is confined to a supine position. Please discuss the impact to the respiratory system and the effects on speech and swallowing (swallowing – only as you know it thus far). You should be clear to explain your response so I am sure you know why the patient may present with those symptoms. You should include comment on similar issues as in Q#1 (volumes of air, muscular activity, timing, etc..) to demonstrate your understanding of the consequences to the speech and swallowing functions. (20 points)

Now consider Billy and Betty are arguing. He is very upset about all of the money that she continues to spend on shoes. He asks: “Did you buy another pair of shoes?”, to which she emphatically screams: “No, I did not!!!”

3) Please tell me what Billy needs to do, LARYNGEALLY, when he gets to the word “shoes”. Based on what we discussed in class, you should discuss specifically what he must do to say this word with respect to glottal configuration (i.e. what he is doing with the larynx), vocal fold movement, and any other relevant changes that are required to produce this entire word. Do NOT use the letters of the word but rather the sounds! (20 points)

4) Now consider that Betty has weakness to her intrinsic lingual muscles, her velar elevators and her laryngeal adductors. In addition, she has a large polyp on her right vocal fold. Tell me precisely what, why and how she may have difficulty with when it comes to
her production of this statement. Again, you should consider each sound and the overall sentence. (20 points)

The health promotion model is a great model that can be used in any aspect of the healthcare field. The combination of nursing and behavioral science is a great platform in understanding how to relate to patients on an individual level

1) The health promotion model is a great model that can be used in any aspect of the healthcare field. The combination of nursing and behavioral science is a great platform in understanding how to relate to patients on an individual level. Participating in your own self-care not only assists in preventing further illness and ensuring overall health but also allows patients to feel a sense of independence and input in their own care.
I currently manage a primary care office, and the application of the health promotion model would be of great value in providing care for our patients, understanding a patient’s individual concept of health would allow us to achieve better outcomes with patients care. The concepts of the health promotional model, such as exploring a patient’s individual characteristics and experiences, their perceived benefits and barriers to action, perceived self-efficacy, situational influences, interpersonal influences and their commitment to a plan of action would allow us to educate patients based on their individual need, intern allowing us and the patient to coordinate the best plan of care.
The HPM is also a great concept that could be used in psychiatry, whereas patients with mental illness are encouraged to care for oneself while hospitalized, do you think the limitations noted in the HPM would limit patients with psychiatric disorders?

2) How can (if possible) the Health Promotion Model be utilized in patients that are confused or have no capacity to make their own medical decisions?

3) Aside from referring them to outpatient centers or even printing discharge instructions as mentioned by your fellow Onyx, what is another way we can bring a change to the community using the HPM

4) The health promotion model focuses on helping people achieve higher levels of well-being. It encourages health professionals to provide positive resources to help patients achieve behavior specific changes. The goal of the HPM is not just about helping patients prevent illness through their behavior, but to look at ways in which a person can pursue better health or ideal health. The paper said: “Pender’s health promotion model is a combination of nursing and behavioral sciences, and aims at health protection, health promotion, disease prevention, and positive behavioral outcomes. It emphasizes an individual’s understanding and perception of health in order to promote health”. Some people are born with pathological diseases; some people will never, no matter what they do, be able to pursue an healthy life. Is the model fails them or is the model does not apply to them? How they can be helped?
