2018 World Series: Red Sox, Dodgers fans stand up to cancer during Game 4 – In recent history, Major League Baseball has established traditions during the World Series. We see the Roberto Clemente Award handed out. We see the Hank Aaron Award presented to a player from each league. We see the Mariano Rivera AL Reliever of the Year and Trevor Hoffman NL Reliever of the Year. And during Game 4 on TV, we see MLB‘s annual Stand Up To Cancer placard moment. The entire stadium of fans holds up cards while standing up along with all the players, coaches, media and everyone else in the ballpark. We’ve seen moving moments such as last year in Houston when manager A.J. Hinch’s card said “Kevin Towers” on it. It was news to most people and the baseball world has since lost Towers. This year’s moment was the eighth annual Stand Up To Cancer World Series placard event. As the founding donor of SU2C, MLB and its 30 Clubs have committed more than $43 million to SU2C’s innovative research.

Question of The Day!
Hi RSB, Super Don, and Dr. Buttar, My daughter has been getting occasional nosebleeds since she was about 4 years old. She just turned 13 and the frequency of the bleeds has really ramped up. She has huge worm like clots that either come out her nostrils or go down her throat. I’ve inquired about this during her physical exams, but the only advice we’ve gotten is to use a humidifier and to drink more water. We live in Massachusetts and the heaters are going on and I know that can be a trigger, but the frequency and the amount of blood is disturbing me. I was hoping to get your perspectives on this before I take her in to be looked at. I want to be informed on this so they don’t push us into anything drastic. I don’t know what to expect. I know you haven’t physically seen her, but what do you think?
Thank you, your daily listener, Johnna T.
Study questions certain treatments for diabetic patients at high risk for heart disease – New research suggests that attempts to normalize blood pressure, and cholesterol may have negative long-term effects on kidney health in adults with type 2 diabetes who are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. The results appear in an upcoming issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN) and will be presented at ASN Kidney Week 2018. Type 2 diabetes greatly increases the risk for both cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease. Therefore, it is especially important to protect the heart and kidney health of patients with type 2 diabetes. In these patients, aggressive control of blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol has resulted in conflicting short-term effects on kidney health. To determine the long-term kidney effects of these interventions, Amy K. Mottl, MD (University of North Carolina Kidney Center), Timothy E. Craven, MSPH (Wake Forest School of Medicine), and their colleagues examined information on more than 10,000 participants in ACCORDION, which is an extension phase of the ACCORD trial, a multifactorial intervention study in people with type 2 diabetes at high risk for cardiovascular disease.
